Intelligent Bio Solutions Unveils Key Performance Indicator Growth in the United Kingdom as Drug Screening Industry Combats Drug Test Cheating and Searches for Simpler, Faster, Non-Invasive and More Cost-Effective Solutions

NEW YORK, May 23, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Intelligent Bio Solutions Inc. (Nasdaq: INBS) (“INBS” or the “Company”), a medical technology company delivering intelligent, rapid, non-invasive testing solutions, today unveiled key performance indicators from its United Kingdom operations. These indicators have contributed to the Company’s growth as the drug screening industry continues to combat drug test cheating and searches for simpler, faster, non-invasive, and more cost-effective solutions.

For the nine months ended March 31, 2024, total revenue was, as previously reported, approximately $2.38 million, an increase of 193% year-over-year, of which the UK accounted for approximately 93% of revenue. During the nine-month period, the percentage of higher margin cartridge revenue accounted for approximately 49% of total revenue.

As of March 31, 2024, INBS provided its innovative, rapid, non-invasive drug testing solutions to more than 400 customers across more than 15 industries in the UK. In the 12 months ended March 31, 2024, the Company acquired 111 new accounts. The Company’s current growth in the UK is largely driven by organic lead generation through B2B referrals as a growing awareness of the Company’s drug testing solution spreads across the country. The successful adoption of INBS’ drug testing solution in the UK suggests promising potential for the Company in the United States following its planned FDA 510(k) submission and anticipated product launch in the first half of 2025.

The Company’s increasing market share in the UK suggests a growing need for effective testing solutions that address global drug challenges, including drug test cheating. The trend of increased drug test cheating, as recently highlighted in the May 15, 2024, Wall Street Journal (WSJ) article “More Workers Are Cheating on Drug Tests” by Joseph De Avila, underscores the necessity of a rapid on-site test such as INBS’ drug testing solution. The WSJ article shows that the number of workers cheating on drug tests is at its highest rate in more than 30 years. According to the article Workforce Drug Test Cheating Surged in 2023, Finds Quest Diagnostics Drug Testing Index Analysis of Nearly 10 Million Drug Tests”, published by Quest Diagnostics, signs of drug test tampering in the general US workforce increased by more than six-fold in 2023 compared to 2022, marking the highest rate in more than 30 years of reporting by Quest. Additionally, substituted urine specimens increased 633% on 2022, and invalid tests increased by 45%. This data is based on a new analysis by Quest Diagnostics of nearly 9.8 million workforce drug tests. These trends emphasize the value of the Company’s solution, which prevents foul play and ensures sample integrity, reducing the risk of drug test cheating in the workplace. 

“Our key performance metrics continue to grow as we gain market share and scale in the UK,” said Harry Simeonidis, President and CEO at INBS. “Our drug testing solution addresses several key industry concerns, including simplifying the process, rapid on-site results, non-invasive administration, and cost-effectiveness. Furthermore, we are seeing employers shift their approach to drug testing to combat the dramatic increase in cheating. This is a growing concern and cannot continue, as the safety of each individual exposed to these employees is of the utmost importance. We are proud of the rapid progress we have made in gaining market share in the UK and look forward to continue offering a new and better solution to the industry globally.”
