ALR Technologies Announces Update to Singapore Migration Merger and GluCurve Pet CGM Commercialization

SINGAPORE, Sept. 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ALR Technologies Inc. (“ALRT”) (OTCQB: ALRT), the diabetes management company, is pleased to announce an update with respect to its migration to Singapore. Further to its Form 8-K filed May 20, 2022, and press release issued May 20, 2022, the Registration Statement on Form F-4 filed by its affiliate, ALR Technologies SG Ltd. (“ALRT Singapore”), has been declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). ALRT anticipates mailing the corresponding prospectus and information statement to its stockholders on or around October 4, 2022. ALRT expects to consummate the previously announced reincorporation merger in which ALRT will become a wholly owned subsidiary of ALRT Singapore as soon as practicable following the required 20-day waiting period subsequent to mailing of the prospectus and information statement, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions, including certain regulatory approvals from FINRA, the OTC Markets Group, ACRA (Singapore), and the Secretaries of State of Nevada and Delaware.

ALRT further announces the proposed distribution agreement between ALRT Singapore and a leading animal health company for the commercialization of the GluCurve Pet CGM previously anticipated in September is now expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2022.

“We have a very strong relationship with both our hardware manufacturer and the leading animal health company we’re working with on a distribution agreement for the GluCurve. After much discussion and consideration, we have decided to push back the commercialization date to later in Q4,” explained Joe Stern, Head of Animal Health at ALRT and ALR Singapore. “The GluCurve production line is up and running, but our manufacturer has experienced delays before final testing can occur and our completed distribution agreement can be signed. During this time, we will continue to work closely with our planned partner on marketing content, strategy, and execution of the launch.”

Mr. Stern concludes, “We believe this extra time will contribute to a stronger and more successful launch in the coming months. We have universally received fantastic feedback on both the product and its need in the marketplace, and we look forward to providing more updates in the near future.”

About the GluCurve Pet CGM

The GluCurve Pet CGM is a Continuous Glucose Monitoring System for diabetic cats and dogs, consisting of an Applicator, Sensor, Transmitter, GluCurve App, and Veterinary Web Portal.

The Sensor is located inside the Applicator and once applied to a pet, the Sensor Electrode chemically reacts with glucose in the hypodermic interstitial fluid to generate an electrical signal. The electrical signal is analyzed to generates blood glucose values, which are sent to the GluCurve App where it is displayed for the pet owner and uploaded to the Veterinary Web Portal.

The GluCurve Pet CGM measures glucose levels every 3 minutes for a total of 480 readings each day, for up to 14 days. The monitor is equipped with built in memory that can store all 14 days of data to prevent the loss of readings when the pet owner is away from their pet. In addition, insulin injections and feeding times can be input into the GluCurve App which uploads the data to the Veterinary Web Portal. Inside the Veterinary Web Portal, glucose readings are organized into time saving graphs and tables with additional features such as glucose curve comparisons and overlays, insulin dose calculators, best practice guidelines, and more.
