The Company’s Right-of-use assets – net and Lease liability were $30.0 million and $31.9 million respectively as of December 31, 2019. As this accounting pronouncement was effective for the Company on July 1, 2019, there are no corresponding amounts recorded during prior periods. Details on the related accounting pronouncement may be found in the Company’s 10-Q for the quarter ended December 31, 2019.

Total Current Assets at December 31, 2019 were $90.0 million, as compared to $85.1 million at June 30, 2019.

Total Current Liabilities at December 31, 2019 were $14.9 million, as compared to $14.1 million at June 30, 2019. Total Current Liabilities is impacted by the recent accounting pronouncement, specifically of the Lease liability – current portion of $3.2 million.

Total Assets at December 31, 2019 were $171.7 million as compared to $133.6 million at June 30, 2019. This includes the Right-of-use assets – net of $30.0 million included in fiscal 2020. Right-of-use assets – net were not included in fiscal 2019.

The Total Assets / Total Liabilities ratio for the quarter ended December 31, 2019 was 3.7 compared to 8.6 as of June 30, 2019. This difference is predominantly due to the effect of the recently adopted accounting pronouncement which required $30.0 million and $31.9 million of assets and liabilities, respectively, to be recorded as of December 31, 2019.

Working Capital increased 6% to $75.1 million for the six months ended December 31, 2019, versus $71.0 million for the year ended June 30, 2019.

Management Discussion

President and CEO, Timothy R. Damadian, said, “The MRI scan volume at HMCA-managed sites in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 was approximately 47,000, which was 6% higher than the scan volume in the corresponding quarter of fiscal 2019. I am pleased that the Company continues on its path of steady growth. In fact, over the past decade, from fiscal 2010 to Fiscal 2019, Total Revenues – Net has grown from $38.1 million to $87.2 million, representing an effective growth of 8.6% per year.

“The continuing growth at existing HMCA-managed centers is primarily attributable to my highly competent management team and the ever-increasing appeal of the Stand-Up® MRI, also known as the UPRIGHT ® MRI, among patients and their physicians. Patients are relieved to find high-quality MRI facilities where they can that get their MRI exams done without the fear and worry of being subjected to the claustrophobia-inducing “tunnels” or “tubes” typical of most other MRI scanners. Additionally, more and more physicians are seeing how the diagnostic information obtained from scanning patients, especially patients with back problems, in weight-bearing positions such as sitting or standing, can lead to treatment plans that result in better patient outcomes. These are the key competitive advantages that we continue to enjoy, thanks to patent-protected FONAR technology.

“In October, 2019, we installed a second MRI scanner at the HMCA-managed facility in Ormond Beach, Florida. There was a need to reduce appointment backlogs and also to increase patient volume by expanding the range of MRI services to the medical community. Even though the second scanner was not operational for the entire second quarter of fiscal 2020, the total scan volume for the quarter was 17% higher than the scan volume in the first quarter of fiscal 2020. The total scan volume has since been ramping up rapidly in the third quarter.

“For the same reasons we installed a second scanner in Ormond Beach, we are currently in the process of adding second MRI scanners at two existing HMCA-managed facilities in New York – one in Westchester County, the other in Suffolk County. Site preparation is well underway at both locations and both scanners are expected to be operational by the end of June. Company growth is also achieved via de novo Stand-Up® MRI locations. I am pleased to report that we are also in the process of installing the first MRI in what will be a two-MRI facility in Pembroke Pines, Florida. We expect Pembroke Pines to be operational by the end of June as well.

Mr. Damadian concluded, “We are investing between four and six million dollars in these four projects. By the end of June, we expect to have added four MRI scanners during fiscal 2020, bringing the total number of MRI scanners under our management to 38. And of course, we’re always on the lookout for new locations or acquisitions that would enhance or expand our existing networks.”

Chairman of the Board, Raymond V. Damadian, M.D., said, “It’s pleasing to me to see FONAR continue to be profitable. The Company is maintaining its cash, cash equivalents and short term investments even while investing in the growth of the Company. HMCA is managed extremely well, which leads to consistent profits for the Company and, therefore, its investors. I am confident that the Company is well-positioned for growth for the remainder of fiscal 2020.”

Dr. Damadian continued, “Regarding our research efforts, over the past few years we have been making cines (movies) of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) as it flows up and down the neck and around the brain. Thanks to the UPRIGHT® MRI’s ability to scan patients in weight-bearing positions as well as in the recumbent, non-weight-bearing position, we are finding significant postural differences in CSF flow. These differences may provide clues which will enable physicians to find solutions to a variety of unsolved medical problems and the power to quantify the degree to which the impaired CSF flow responsible for the patients’ symptoms have been rectified by the patient’s surgical and non-surgical CCJ (Cranio-Cervical Junction) treatment. Currently, our research is focused on quantifying CSF flow and the velocity at which it navigates through the neck and head. We’ve been able to use this quantitative CSF data collected from asymptomatic patients to identify the degree to which CSF flow impairment is responsible for the patient’s symptoms and the degree to which the patient’s surgical or non-surgical CCJ treatment has restored the patient’s critical brain and central nervous symptom’s physiology to normal.”

Dr. Damadian added, “MRI has brought a new dimension to MEDICAL TREATMENT, the power to VISUALIZE ANATOMIC DETAIL in the body's VITAL SOFT TISSUES (brain, heart, kidney, liver, spleen, lungs, pancreas, intestines) plus MRI's new power to non-invasively QUANTIFY (e.g. measure T1, T2, diffusion, chemical spectra) the response of these VITAL TISSUES to treatment.”

Dr. Damadian continued, “In addition, Research and Development expenses have increased by 7% to $1M for the 6 months ending December 31, 2019 as compared to the same period in 2018, with most of that increase during the current quarter as we continue our efforts developing various upgrades for the UPRIGHT® MRI.”

Dr. Damadian concluded, “We are also hopeful that our research may lead to a new understanding of the role of CSF on neurologic diseases, such as MS.”

About FONAR

FONAR, the Inventor of MR Scanning™, is located in Melville, NY, was incorporated in 1978, and is the first, oldest and most experienced MRI company in the industry. FONAR introduced the world’s first commercial MRI in 1980, and went public in 1981. FONAR’s signature product is the FONAR UPRIGHT® Multi-Position™ MRI (also known as the Stand-Up® MRI), the only whole-body MRI that performs Position™ Imaging (pMRI™) and scans patients in numerous weight-bearing positions, i.e. standing, sitting, in flexion and extension, as well as the conventional lie-down position. The FONAR UPRIGHT® MRI often detects patient problems that other MRI scanners cannot because they are lie-down and ”weightless” only scanners. The patient-friendly UPRIGHT® MRI has a near-zero patient claustrophobic rejection rate. As a FONAR customer states, “If the patient is claustrophobic in this scanner, they’ll be claustrophobic in my parking lot.” Approximately 85% of patients are scanned sitting while watching TV.

FONAR has new works-in-progress technology for visualizing and quantifying the cerebral hydraulics of the central nervous system, the flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), which circulates throughout the brain and vertebral column at the rate of 32 quarts per day. This imaging and quantifying of the dynamics of this vital life-sustaining physiology of the body’s neurologic system has been made possible first by FONAR’s introduction of the MRI and now by this latest works-in-progress method for quantifying CSF in all the normal positions of the body, particularly in its upright flow against gravity. Patients with whiplash or other neck injuries are among those who will benefit from this new understanding.

FONAR’s substantial list of patents includes recent patents for its technology enabling full weight-bearing MRI imaging of all the gravity sensitive regions of the human anatomy, especially the brain, extremities and spine. It includes its newest technology for measuring the Upright cerebral hydraulics of the central nervous system. FONAR’s UPRIGHT® Multi-Position™ MRI is the only scanner licensed under these patents.

UPRIGHT® and STAND-UP® are registered trademarks and The Inventor of MR Scanning™, Full Range of Motion™, Multi-Position™, Upright Radiology™, The Proof is in the Picture™, True Flow™, pMRI™, Spondylography™, Dynamic™, Spondylometry™, CSP™, and Landscape™, are trademarks of FONAR Corporation.
