RICHARDSON, TX, August 10, 2020 /Businesswire/ — Fuse Medical, Inc. (OTCPINK: FZMD) (“Fuse” or the “Company”) announced that it filed its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2020 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on Friday, August 7, 2020.
The COVID-19 pandemic posed an unprecedented challenge to the medical device industry, with state and local government authorities issuing executive orders such as the deferment of elective medical procedures and other social distancing restrictions. Although some of these restrictions had been lifted as of April 22, 2020, they did adversely affect Fuse’s operations and financial results for the second quarter of 2020.
Chief Executive Officer, Christopher C. Reeg said, “Although the restrictions on elective surgeries negatively impacted our April sales, we are very proud of the way our core team remained focused and prepared for today’s post-restriction period. We are grateful to our surgeons, distributors, vendors, and hospitals for continuing to work with us through these unprecedented times.”
Mr. Reeg continued, “We experienced strong May and June sales momentum which has continued into the third quarter, due in large part to the pent-up demand for elective surgeries. During this same period, as a result of the continued adoption of our core Fuse branded products, our gross profit margins have continued to improve. While current business conditions may lend a degree of uncertainty, we anticipate the strong second quarter trends to continue into the third and fourth quarters of 2020.”
“As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, we will continue to reposition our business strategies and practices to adapt. We have used this time of uncertainty to reflect on and improve our operations, so that we will be better prepared to assist our customers in any situation that is yet to come. Our product design and development pipelines remain robust. We have not experienced any significant interruptions in our manufacturing supply chain, which has allowed us to continue our ongoing production development and scheduled product launches in spine and ortho. We believe we are better equipped going forward, and look to stronger sales and results of operations for the balance of 2020 and beyond.” said Reeg.
The Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filing can be viewed in the “Investors” section of the Company’s website, www.fusemedical.com as well as the SEC’s website.
