Omer, Israel, May 16, 2022 /– ScoutCam Inc. (OTCQB: SCTC) (“ScoutCam” or the “Company”), a leading provider of visualization solutions across a variety of industries based on small and highly resilient cameras, today announced its consolidated financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022 and provided a corporate update.
As of March 31, 2022, ScoutCam had $19.3 million of cash and short-term deposits on its balance sheet and the Company reported an operating loss of $2.7 million for the quarter.
“We continue to be excited about the numerous applications of our products, specifically within the framework of Industry 4.0,” stated ScoutCam’s CEO, Yovav Sameah. “Our innovative, patented technology is in the early stages of market acceptance, and we remain confident that over time adoption will be reflected in our financial results.”
“During the quarter, we increased research and development expenses to $954,000, as we expanded applications of our Camera-as-a-Sensor™ portfolio for Condition Based Monitoring (CBM) and Predictive Maintenance (PdM) markets, and focused on new verticals such as automotive, aviation, wind turbines, UAVs and energy, where ScoutCam’s solutions can increase safety and performance.”
“Additionally, we recently signed a new licensing agreement with Japan-based Sumita Optical Glass, Inc., allowing us to monetize and benefit from our patented technology portfolio through royalty payments. We will continue to evaluate future opportunities for licensing agreements as an additional source of revenue.”
“Lastly, with our new solutions, we’ve adopted a subscription-based model, which allows customers to access data collection and cloud storage as well as AI-based analysis. Going forward, we plan on gaining market share and growing our revenues as we expand into new verticals in order to enhance shareholder value,” Sameah concluded.

Having introduced the use of its micro camera and AI platform to Industry 4.0 markets such as aviation, energy, mobility and transportation, ScoutCam’s Camera-as-a-sensor™ technology, accompanied by specialized AI analysis models, is being deployed in hard-to-reach locations and harsh environments, across a variety of Predictive Maintenance and Condition Based Monitoring use cases. ScoutCam’s platform allows maintenance and operations teams visibility into areas which are inaccessible under normal operation, or where the operating ambience is not suitable for continuous real-time monitoring.
