"Clients have begun to migrate to QuantaFlo™, our latest cardiovascular product, from our lower-priced predecessor product," said Doug Murphy-Chutorian, M.D., chief executive officer of Semler. "These upgrades along with business from new clients are central features of our plan to achieve the goals of profitability, positive cash flow from operations and minimal shareholder dilution in 2016," he added.

First Half 2016 Highlights

The major accomplishments of 2016 to date are as follows:

  1. Increased the established base of QuantaFlo installations with large health insurance company customers
  2. Continued migrating customers to QuantaFlo from the lower-priced predecessor product

In 2016, revenue from QuantaFlo is expected to continue to grow due to an increasing number of installations, higher average pricing and the recurring revenue business model.

Semler plans to re-start WellChec business in the fourth quarter of 2016.  WellChec™ was responsible for both substantial revenue growth and associated start-up costs in the fourth quarter of 2015, which impacts comparisons of both revenue and operating expense from sequential quarterly periods. Because Semler does not give financial guidance, the magnitude of these changes and progress will be reported during the quarterly earnings releases.

"We continue to grow QuantaFlo revenue and have reduced net operating loss," said Dr. Murphy-Chutorian. "We anticipate that our common stock will be quoted on the over-the-counter market (OTC QB) following delisting from NASDAQ, which we anticipate will occur on or around August 8th. Our plan is for our current cash position to be sufficient to fund operations until achieving our goal of profitability at which time we will give consideration to relisting on NASDAQ capital market," he added.

Semler will host a conference call at 11 a.m. EDT, Friday, July 29, 2016. The call will address second quarter results and will provide a business update on Semler's market outlook and strategies for the near-term future.

About Semler Scientific, Inc.:

Semler Scientific, Inc., is an emerging growth company that provides technology solutions to improve the clinical effectiveness and efficiency of healthcare insurers and physician groups.  Our mission is to develop, manufacture and market innovative proprietary products and services that assist our customers in evaluating and treating chronic diseases. Our first patented and U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, cleared product, introduced commercially in 2011, measured arterial blood flow in the extremities to aid in the diagnosis of peripheral arterial disease. In March 2015 we received FDA 510(k) clearance for the next generation version of this product named QuantaFlo, which was commercially launched in August 2015. In April 2015, we launched our multi-test service platform, WellChec, to more comprehensively evaluate our customers' patients for chronic disease, including heart attacks and strokes. We believe the combination of our proprietary test, QuantaFlo, and our multi-test service platform, WellChec, position us to provide valuable information to our insurance company and physician customers, which in turn permit them to better guide patient care.
