Nature of Operations

MYOS RENS Technology Inc. is an emerging bionutrition and biotherapeutics company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of products that improve muscle health and function. The Company was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on April 11, 2007. On March 17, 2016, the Company merged with its wholly-owned subsidiary and changed its name from MYOS Corporation to MYOS RENS Technology Inc. As used in these financial statements, the terms the “Company”, “MYOS”, “our”, or “we”, refer to MYOS RENS Technology Inc. and its subsidiary, unless the context indicates otherwise. On February 25, 2011, the Company entered into an agreement to acquire the intellectual property for Fortetropin®, our proprietary active ingredient from Peak Wellness, Inc.


Our commercial focus is to leverage our clinical data to develop multiple products to target the large, but currently underserved, markets focused on muscle health. The sales channels through which we sell our products are evolving. The first product we introduced was MYO-T12, which was sold in the sports nutrition market. MYO T-12 is a proprietary formula containing Fortetropin and other ingredients. The formula was sold under the brand name MYO T-12 and later as MYO-X through an exclusive distribution agreement with Maximum Human Performance (“MHP”). While the exclusive distribution agreement with MHP terminated in March 2015, MHP continues to distribute its remaining MYO-X inventories on popular retailer websites and in specialty retailers principally in the U.S. We expect minimal future sales to MHP, if any.


In February 2014, we expanded our commercial operations into the age management market through a distribution agreement with Cenegenics Product and Lab Services, LLC (“Cenegenics”), under which Cenegenics distributes and promotes a proprietary formulation containing Fortetropin through its age management centers and its community of physicians focused on treating a growing population of patients focused on proactively addressing age-related health and wellness concerns. On November 28, 2014, we entered into a settlement agreement with Cenegenics wherein we agreed to accept $1,900 by April 2016, (i.e., $300 in the fourth quarter of 2014 and $100 per month from January 2015 through April 2016) in full satisfaction of Cenegenics’ outstanding obligations with respect to units of product produced by the Company, including units that had not yet been shipped to Cenegenics at the time of the settlement agreement. In exchange, we agreed to withdraw our October 10, 2014 request for arbitration before the International Chamber of Commerce. During the second quarter of 2015, Cenegenics accepted delivery of the remaining units that we were storing on its behalf. Given the settlement agreement’s extended payment schedule, the Company deferred the revenue and related cost associated with the shipment and recorded the revenue and cost of sales as the related payments were received through April 2016. The distribution agreement with Cenegenics expires in December 2016. We expect minimal future sales to Cenegenics, if any.


During the second quarter of 2015 we launched Rē Muscle HealthTM, our own direct-to-consumer portfolio of muscle health bars, meal replacement shakes and daily supplement powders each powered by a full 6.6 gram single serving dose of Fortetropin. Our Rē Muscle Health products are sold through our e-commerce website, remusclehealth.com, and amazon.com.


We continue to pursue additional distribution and branded sales opportunities. We expect to continue developing our own core branded products in markets such as functional foods, sports and fitness nutrition and rehab and restorative health and to pursue international sales opportunities. There can be no assurance that we will be able to secure distribution arrangements on terms acceptable to the Company, or that we will be able to generate significant sales of our current and future branded products.


Strategic Investment Transaction

On December 17, 2015, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with RENS Technology Inc. (the “Purchaser”), pursuant to which the Purchaser agreed to invest $20.25 million in the Company (the “Financing”) in exchange for (i) an aggregate of 3,537,037 shares (the “Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001 per share (“Common Stock”), and (ii) warrants to purchase an aggregate of 884,259 shares of Common Stock (the “Warrants”, and together with the Shares, the “Securities”). The Purchaser will purchase the Securities in three tranches over twenty-four months. In the first tranche, which closed on March 3, 2016, the Purchaser acquired 1,500,000 Shares and a warrant to purchase 375,000 shares of Common Stock (the “First Closing Warrant”) for $5.25 million. In the second tranche, which we expect will close by September 2016, the Purchaser will acquire 925,926 Shares and a warrant to purchase 231,481 shares of Common Stock (the “Second Closing Warrant”) for $5.0 million. In the third tranche, which we expect will close within eighteen months of the closing of the second tranche, the Purchaser will acquire 1,111,111 Shares and a warrant to purchase 277,778 shares of Common Stock (the “Third Closing Warrant”) for $10.0 million. Each of the Warrants will be immediately exercisable upon issuance, will expire five years after issuance and will have the following exercise prices: (a) $7.00 per share for the First Closing Warrant, (b) $10.80 per share for the Second Closing Warrant and (c) $18.00 per share for the Third Closing Warrant. In addition, the Company agreed: (i) that the Purchaser will have the right to appoint four persons to the Company’s board of directors, subject to adjustment based on the Purchaser’s ownership percentage of the Company; (ii) to provide the Purchaser with a right to participate in 50% (or 100% if shares are to be issued for less than $3.50 per share) of any future financings pursued by the Company within 12 months from the closing of the third tranche of the Financing; and, (iii) until the closing of the third tranche, the Company will not take certain actions, including issuing shares (except for certain permitted issuances) or appointing new officers and directors, without the Purchaser’s consent.


The first tranche of the Financing was completed on March 3, 2016. The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the first tranche of the Financing to fund its working capital, product development and marketing, research and development and other general corporate purposes. Concurrent with the execution of the Purchase Agreement, the Company entered into an exclusive distribution agreement (the “Distribution Agreement”) with RENS Agriculture Science & Technology Co. Ltd., (“RENS Agriculture”), the parent company of the Purchaser. Pursuant to the terms of the Distribution Agreement, the Company will supply product for RENS Agriculture’s exclusive distribution in China (including mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan) and all countries in Southeast Asia in exchange for payment terms to be mutually agreed upon the conclusion of a market study and trial sale. In addition, the Purchaser agreed that, subsequent to the closing of the first tranche of the Financing, it will assist the Company in: utilizing its food technologies in the Company’s existing and future products, finding suitable manufacturing partners in China, locating suitable acquisition targets in China and setting up a subsidiary in China.


In addition, on December 17, 2015, the Company issued a convertible note in the amount of $575 to Gan Ren, a related party of RENS Agriculture. The convertible note provided short-term funding to the Company prior to the closing of the first tranche of the Financing. For additional information on the convertible note with Gan Ren refer to “NOTE 6 – Debt – Convertible Note.”



As of March 31, 2016, the Company had cash of $5,217 and working capital of $5,685 (current assets of $7,013 less current liabilities of $1,328). For the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015 our net loss was $1,220 and $1,529, respectively. In addition, net cash used in operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015 was $703 and $977, respectively. At March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, we had an accumulated deficit of $24,665 and $23,445, respectively. At March 31, 2016, we had outstanding borrowings of $575 under a convertible note (See NOTE 6 – Debt – Convertible Note).


We may seek to raise additional capital through the issuance of debt or equity securities. Should the Company seek additional debt and/or equity financing, it cannot assure that such financing will be available on acceptable terms, if at all. Based on management’s forecast, as of the filing date of this Form 10-Q, we believe that we will have sufficient capital resources from operations and existing financing arrangements, including the Financing discussed above, in order to meet operating expenses and working capital requirements for at least the next twelve months.
