Sharps Technology Announces Letter to Shareholders
NEW YORK, June 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sharps Technology, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ: “STSS” and “STSSW”), is an innovative medical device company offering patented, best-in-class, single use smart safety syringe products, published a letter to shareholders. from Robert Hayes, CEO and from Alan Blackman and Soren Christiansen on behalf of the board.
Dear Fellow Shareholders:
The completion of our IPO on Nasdaq, in April, marked a major milestone in the ongoing evolution of Sharps Technology and is a key catalyst driving our transformation from an R&D focused company to revenue generating commercial operations. Moreover, the capital we raised in our IPO will enable us to scale operations in the coming quarters as we begin to meet the strong and growing demand for smart safety syringes, a market forecasted to reach $14 billion globally by 2026. As such, we believe that recent Company share prices do not reflect our true value.
Our team is now working toward our next major milestone, the conclusion of our acquisition and the commencement of commercial manufacturing at our FDA/CE Mark approved facility in Hungary. We believe with the capital from our IPO we are in a position to manufacture and deliver 100 million units of our proprietary syringe products over the next 24 months.
Negotiations are well underway for an onshore US based manufacturing collaboration with a major US University, which includes substantive discussions with State and Federal funding agencies. Our production targets are expected to grow significantly into 2023/24. We look forward to providing additional updates on these initiatives in the months ahead.
With our near-term path to commercial manufacturing clear, our team is actively negotiating with potential distribution partners in the US, and we anticipate signing our first distributor agreement during the second half of this year. This will represent another important milestone in our transformation and should provide us with a solid foundation as we seek to rapidly expand sales and grow market share.
As we have disclosed previously, our commercialization and growth strategies also include a focus on developing strategic alliances and joint ventures with pharmaceutical companies. Such discussions are proceeding with the aim of creating a collaboration which accelerates our goal of developing enhanced pre-fillable drug delivery products.
Our Sharps Provensa Ultra-Low Waste™ syringes are an attractive solution for drug companies, providing a way to minimize vaccine or drug waste. Our goal is to incorporate our features and benefits within a pre-fillable syringe product line, providing unique solutions for the pharmaceutical industry.
According to independent testing*, in a 1 ml syringe, high-dead-space syringes can wastean average of approximately10% of medication per dose. As doses get smaller, the percentage increases accordingly. With a 1 ml syringe,Sharps Provensa ultra- low waste has under 1%. This can translate to a savings of over $2,000 per patient, per year. And importantly, less wasted medication means more lifesaving drugs are available for family, country and the world. This shortfall has come to the forefront as the world still grapples with rolling out COVID-19 vaccinations.
I believe we are well positioned to deliver on our near-term initiatives. I want to thank our shareholders for their support on this journey as we advance the future of drug delivery systems.
We will post updates as we achieve our goals.
Robert Hayes, CEO
Alan Blackman & Soren Christiansen on behalf of the Board
