Note 1 — The Company and Description of the Business
PAVmed Inc. (“PAVmed” or the “Company”) is a highly-differentiated multi-product technology medical device company organized to advance a broad pipeline of innovative medical technologies from concept to commercialization, employing a business model focused on capital efficiency and speed to market. Since inception on June 26, 2014, the Company’s activities have focused on advancing the lead products towards regulatory approval and commercialization, protecting its intellectual property, and building its corporate infrastructure and management team. The Company operates in one segment as a medical device company.
On May 8, 2018, Lucid Diagnostics Inc., a majority-owned subsidiary of the Company, was incorporated in the State of Delaware, and on May 12, 2018, Lucid Diagnostics Inc. entered into a license agreement with Case Western Reserve University (“CWRU”) with respect to the intellectual property and proprietary technologies referred to as EsoCheck™ and “EsoGuard™”.
To date, the Company has not recognized revenue. The ability to generate revenue depends upon the Company’s ability to successfully complete the development, obtain regulatory approval, and to initiate commercialization of its product candidates. Currently, the Company’s activities are focused principally on obtaining FDA clearance and initializing commercialization of the lead product candidates, including CarpX™, EsoGuard™, EsoCheck™, and PortIO™, along with advancing additional product candidates through their respective research and development phase, including DisappEAR™ and NextFloTM. The Company plans to incur research and development expenses for the foreseeable future from the continued development of its current and future product candidates.
