Corporate highlights for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 and recent weeks include:
? Following its launch on June 25, 2020, the Company deployed InMotion Connect™, a cloud-based data analytics solution, which combines real-time robot data with deep expertise of BIONIK's clinical specialists to partner with each clinic, promoting robot utilization, supporting clinician engagement, and enhancing patient care by providing contextual and relevant data to reach hospital clinicians and management teams when it matters the most. The Company continues to customize the solution by developing new functionalities including smart actions to improve the decision process.
? In October 2020, the Company placed an InMotion Connect™ solution at another strategic account, for evaluation and possible sales across that account's hospital network.
Commenting on the quarter, Dr. Eric Dusseux, BIONIK's Chief Executive Officer, said, "Following the launch of InMotion Connect™, we are seeing good traction in targeting the critical needs around improving technology adoption and utilization at each rehabilitation clinic we serve. Through this new platform, we can ensure that the state-of-the-art rehabilitation methods are effectively in use across the hospital networks. We sold and deployed, during the second quarter of fiscal year 2021, InMotion Connect™ solutions within 22 hospitals across 13 states in the U.S. and look forward to our customers' continued and long-term use of the many solutions InMotion Connect™ offers. We have already seen the impact at many of our client sites, showing the benefit and ROI to our customers, the clinicians, the hospital management and the headquarter teams. Feedback received to-date suggests that these teams are seeing improved performance and most importantly, are now more confident in the process to increase their internal objectives and are moving to share transparently the metrics for these newly increased targets within their organization. Our R&D team is focused on continuing its work to improve the InMotion Connect™ solution, expanding the functionalities and including smart actions to better support the decision making and management process at our client's sites. With the COVID-19 pandemic, we are continuing to operate under a modified plan to reduce costs and otherwise address the effects on our business caused by COVID-19."
BIONIK continues to expect to achieve the following milestones during fiscal year 2021:
? Continue to expand sales channels in North America and abroad.
? Further develop InMotion Connect™ solutions to serve clinical rehabilitation providers.
? Work with our commercial outsourced manufacturing partner to enhance effectiveness in order to support the expected increase in product demand and introduction of new products.
? Increase sales of data solutions, service contracts and warranties.
Sales for quarter ended September 30, 2020 were $292,381, compared with $281,691 for the quarter ended September 30, 2019. The increase reflects the sale of one InMotion robot sold during the COVID-19 pandemic quarter ended September 30, 2020 compared to two InMotion robots in the prior-year quarter, and 22 InMotion Connect™ solutions, including hardware and subscriptions, following the InMotion Connect™ launch at the end of June 2020. In addition, deferred revenue, comprised of training to be provided and extended warranties, decreased to $526,250 at September 30, 2020 from $616,063 at March 31, 2020. The Company believes that extended warranties and training are important to growing parts of its business.
Gross margin for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 was $222,334, or 76%, on the sale of InMotion robots, Connect and Pulse, compared to $198,484, or 70%, for the quarter ended September 30, 2019.
The Company reported a comprehensive loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 of $(1,627,622), or a loss per share of $(0.32), compared with a comprehensive loss of $(3,382,684), or a loss per share of $(0.87), for the quarter ended September 30, 2019. The decrease in the loss is due to a reduction of employees by 30% between March 31, 2020 and September 30, 2020 primarily due to completion of engineering projects connected with the development of InMotion Connect™. BIONIK had cash and cash equivalents of $1,350,627 as of September 30, 2020, compared to $2,269,747 as of March 31, 2020.

The working capital deficit at September 30, 2019 is due to convertible loans received by the Company during the six months being recorded as current liabilities rather than in equity when the loans are converted.
