DESCRIPTION OF THE COMPANY

Note 1 - Description of the Company

H-CYTE, Inc (“the Company”) is a hybrid-biopharmaceutical company dedicated primarily to developing and delivering new treatments for patients with chronic respiratory and pulmonary disorders. During the last three years, the Company has evolved into two separate divisions with its entrance into the biologics and device development space (“Biotech Division”). This division is complementary to the Company’s current Lung Health Institute (LHI) autologous infusion therapy business (“Infusion Division”) and is focused on underserved disease states. On September 8, 2021, the Company announced that its Lung Health Institute facilities changed their names to Centers for Respiratory Health as the clinics continue to deliver treatments for patients with chronic respiratory and pulmonary disorders.

 

The consolidated results for H-CYTE include the following wholly-owned subsidiaries: H-CYTE Management, LLC, Medovex Corp, Cognitive Health Institute, LLC, and Lung Institute Tampa, LLC and the results include Lung Institute Dallas, LLC (“LI Dallas”), Lung Institute Nashville, LLC (“LI Nashville”), Lung Institute Pittsburgh, LLC (“LI Pittsburgh”), and Lung Institute Scottsdale, LLC (“LI Scottsdale”), as Variable Interest Entities (“VIEs”). Additionally, H-CYTE Management, LLC is the operator and manager of the various Lung Health Institute (LHI) clinics: LI Dallas, LI Nashville, LI Pittsburgh, and LI Scottsdale. The LI Dallas and LI Pittsburgh clinics did not reopen in 2020 after the temporary closure of all LI clinics due to COVID-19. These two clinics will remain permanently closed. During the first quarter of 2022, the Company decided to close the LI Tampa and LI Nashville clinics. The LI Scottsdale clinic will remain open.

  

Impact of COVID-19

 

The coronavirus outbreak (“COVID-19”) has adversely affected the Company’s financial condition and results of operations. The impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on businesses and the economy in the United States is expected to continue to be significant. The extent to which the COVID-19 outbreak will continue to impact businesses and the economy is highly uncertain. Accordingly, the Company cannot predict the extent to which its financial condition and results of operation will be affected.

 

On January 30, 2020, the World Health Organization (“WHO”) announced a global health emergency caused by a new strain of the coronavirus and advised of the risks to the international community as the virus spread globally. In March 2020, the WHO classified the COVID-19 outbreak as a pandemic based on the rapid increase in exposure globally. The spread of COVID-19 coronavirus has caused public health officials to recommend precautions to mitigate the spread of the virus, especially as to travel and congregating in large numbers. In addition, certain states and municipalities have enacted quarantining regulations which severely limit the ability of people to move and travel.

 

In addition, the Company is uncertain of the full effect the pandemic will have on it for the longer term since the scope and duration of the pandemic is unknown, and evolving factors such as the level and timing of the distribution of efficacious vaccines across the world and the extent of any resurgences of the virus or emergence of new variants of the virus, such as the Delta variant and the Omicron variant, will impact the stability of economic recovery and growth. The Company may experience long-term disruptions to its operations resulting from changes in government policy or guidance; quarantines of employees, customers and suppliers in areas affected by the pandemic; and closures of businesses or manufacturing facilities critical to its business.

 

 

Autologous Infusion Therapy (“Infusion Division”)

 

The Company’s Infusion Division develops and implements innovative treatment options in autologous cellular therapy (PRP-PBMC) to treat chronic lung disorders. Committed to an individualized patient-centric approach, this division consistently provides oversight and management of the highest quality care to the LHI clinics located in Tampa, Nashville, and Scottsdale, while producing positive medical outcomes following the strictest CDC guidelines. During the first quarter of 2022, the Company decided to close the clinics in Tampa and Nashville, the Scottsdale clinic will remain open.

 

Biotech Development (“Biotech Division”)

 

During the year ended December 31, 2021, the Company completed a review of the R&D status regarding the exclusive product supply and services agreements with Rion, LLC (“Rion”) to develop and distribute (post U.S. Food & Drug Administration, the “FDA”, approval) a biologic combining its PRP-PBMC (“PRP”) technology with Rion’s exosomes (“EV”) technology for the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (“COPD”). The Company has determined a single entity biologic from an alternative commercial source will be a more viable solution. The Company has decided to move away from Rion’s PRP technology and is progressing alternate biologics and therapeutic devices to meet the needs of the business.
