Henderson, NV, July 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- George Sharp, CEO of Forwardly, Inc. (OTCMKT: FORW), provided the following updates to the company’s
Ligand Innovation Global
The United States Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) has informed Ligand Innovation Global ("Ligand") that it has rejected Ligand’s application for Emergency Use
Authorization of the LifeAir Portable Ventilator, also known as the VitaCaeli Portable Ventilator, as the current situation is no longer adjudged to be an emergency. Ligand is a partially owned
subsidiary and partner of Forwardly, Inc.
“In interpreting the feedback from the FDA, together with our FDA counsel at Hogan Lovells, it is our understanding that emergency approvals typically would involve
a situational review and then an in-depth product review for safety and quality. In this case, we understand that the FDA only conducted a situational review and arrived at the conclusion that
given the current situation with therapeutics and vaccines, ventilators are no longer considered critical. As such, the FDA is no longer issuing emergency approvals, and in fact, is now requiring
those ventilator manufacturers who did receive emergency approvals, to file for a full approval,” stated Ligand CEO, Dr. Dayo Olakulehin. “Our prime focus is now the preparation of a full
application to the FDA, while continuing to explore alternate jurisdictions. As we speak, our attorneys at Hogan Lovells are preparing for a pre-submission meeting with the FDA prior to
submitting a 510k application for full approval.”
In the meantime, Ligand has fulfilled a request for a demo unit from the Food and Drug Authority of the nation of Ghana and the authority is now receiving video
training from Ligand.
The Food and Drug Authority of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has invited Ligand to submit an application for approval its ventilator and the company is now preparing
for that application. Preparation includes the requirement of electromagnetic interference testing for medical devices (“EMC testing”). Ligand is engaging TÜV SÜD to complete the required EMC
testing and believes that the current version and subsequent iterations of the VitaCaeli Portable Ventilator will meet standards.
Maverick Energy Group
On April 15, 2021, Forwardly announced that it had issued a one year fixed rate convertible loan to Maverick Energy Group, Inc. (OTCMKT: MKGP) in the amount of
$200,000. That loan is now default, and Forwardly has filed litigation in Nevada seeking to recover the principle, interest and attorney’s fees from Maverick. Forwardly’s CEO, George Sharp, is
also party to that litigation as he is seeking recoverable damages that resulted from his own personal loan of $100,000 to Maverick.
Worldwide NFT, Inc.
On July 1, 2022, Forwardly agreed to provide seed capital to Worldwide NFT, Inc. (OTCMKT: WNFT) through the purchase of a WNFT warrant, upon FINRA’s execution of
WNFT’s name change and forward split. That having been done, Forwardly has agreed to purchase a warrant from WNFT providing for the right to purchase 5 million WNFT warrant shares at $.32 per
warrant share. The warrant must be exercised either in full or in part within two years of issuance. Forwardly will pay WNFT $200,000 for this warrant.
