1. Organization and Nature of Business
Augmedix, Inc. (the “Company”, “we” or “our”) was incorporated in 2013 and launched its commercial real-time, remote documentation services in 2014.
Augmedix delivers industry-leading, ambient medical documentation and data products to healthcare systems, physician practices, hospitals, and telemedicine practitioners.
Augmedix is on a mission to help clinicians and patients form a human connection at the point of care without the intrusion of technology. Augmedix’s products digitize natural physician-patient conversations and convert it to medical notes in real time, which are seamlessly transferred to the Electronic Health Record (“EHR”) system. To achieve this, the Company’s Notebuilder Platform uses Automated Speech Recognition, Natural Language Processing, including Large Language Models, and proprietary structured data sets, supported by medical documentation specialists.
Leveraging this platform, Augmedix’s products relieve clinicians of administrative burden, in turn, reducing burnout and increasing both clinician and patient satisfaction.
Augmedix is headquartered in San Francisco, CA, with offices in three (3) countries around the world.
The Company has historically funded its operations primarily by debt and equity financings prior to the merger with Malo Holdings and subsequently funded its operations through cash proceeds obtained as part of the listing on the OTC market and the listing on Nasdaq. As of June 30, 2023, the Company’s existing sources of liquidity included cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash of $25.3 million, plus up to $5.0 million in incremental capital available through the SVB Loan Agreement and an additional $5.0 million through the Equity Line of Credit with Redmile Group, LLC, which may be utilized starting in the second half of 2024. The Company has a limited history of operations and has incurred negative cash flows from operating activities and losses from operations in the past as reflected in the accumulated deficit of $136.1 million as of June 30, 2023. The Company has relied on debt and equity financing to fund operations to date and expects losses and negative cash flows to continue, primarily as a result of continued research, development, and marketing efforts. The Company’s cash balance will provide sufficient resources to meet working capital needs for over twelve months from the filing date of the June 30, 2023 Form 10-Q. Over the longer term, if the Company does not generate sufficient revenue from new and existing products, additional debt or equity financing may be required along with a reduction in expenditures. Additionally, there is no assurance if the Company requires additional future financing that such financing will be available on terms which are acceptable to it, or at all.
Risks and Uncertainties
The Company is subject to a number of risks associated with companies at a similar stage, including dependence on key personnel, competition from similar products and larger companies, ongoing changes within the industry, ability to obtain adequate financing to support growth, the ability to attract and retain additional qualified personnel to manage the anticipated growth of the Company, and general economic conditions, including ongoing economic impacts from the conflict in Ukraine, economic volatility caused by increased interest rates, and instability within the banking system.
