FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Nov. 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OmniComm Systems, Inc. (OTCQX:OMCM), a leading global provider of clinical data management technology, and  Algorithm, Inc. and its subsidiaries Algorics Ltd. and Algorithm Informatics Pvt. Ltd. (collectively, "Algorics"), have signed a letter of intent ("LOI"), under which OmniComm will acquire certain assets and assume certain liabilities of Algorics, a provider of clinical analytics solutions and software. By combining forces, the companies expect increased operating efficiency, strengthened traction in the maturing risk-based approach solution area, new marketing opportunities and an expanded portfolio of electronic data capture (EDC) solutions for the global clinical trials industry. The transaction would also provide OmniComm with an office in India, a country of growing importance in the clinical trials market.

The proposed acquisition will cement the existing collaboration between the companies and provide OmniComm with access to advanced data analytics capabilities and specialized algorithms, including artificial intelligence/machine learning, developed by Algorics.

"We've been partnering with OmniComm for the last two and a half years. The companies are a very good fit culturally, with a high compatibility of technologies and shared vision for clinical trials innovation," said Nithiya Ananthakrishnan, CEO and founder of Algorics. "Algorics has developed algorithms and software to address the increasing demands from global regulatory bodies for reduced regulatory risk, improved quality and compliance with real-time insight. Joining OmniComm will accelerate our goal of becoming the best-in-class solution for risk-based monitoring and clinical data analytics. We look forward to bringing additional competitive advantages to OmniComm's customers by delivering end-to-end RBM solutions and specialized data analytics expertise."

With two decades of operating experience, OmniComm will provide the Algorics team with an established and expanding marketplace. The acquisition will enable OmniComm to diversify and increase its product line. Additional benefits include:

  • Enhanced real-time and cross-study reporting capabilities for OmniComm's TrialMaster® and TrialOne® product lines.
  • AI/Machine-learning capabilities for remote monitoring of research sites.
  • End-to-end risk management framework in compliance with the recent ICH GCP E6 Addendum.
  • Expanded regional customer support in the Asia-Pacific market.
  • An office in India, which has become increasingly important for research and development initiatives in the pharmaceutical market.

"This acquisition fills a strong need for our customer base in the area of data aggregation and analytics, cross-study reporting and risk-based monitoring support," said Stephen Johnson, president and CEO of OmniComm. "The Acuity platform from Algorics perfectly complements and integrates with our TrialMaster EDC platform to improve clinical trials data quality, enhance our current risk-based monitoring capabilities and enable our clients to make better, real-time decisions throughout their clinical research."

OmniComm and Algorics both use the Microsoft Technology Stack, so the integration with TrialMaster and TrialOne is seamless, Mr. Johnson added.

No finder's fees are payable as a result of the proposed acquisition. Completion of the proposed acquisition is subject to a number of conditions including, but not limited to completion of satisfactory due diligence during a ninety (90) day due diligence period, the negotiation and execution of a definitive asset purchase agreement and approval of the Board of Directors of OmniComm. There can be no assurance that the transaction will be completed as proposed. The proposed acquisition is expected to close by the first quarter of 2018.
