About CVR Global
CVR Global Inc. is a private C Corporation incorporated in 2007. The Company is dedicated to the commercialization of it’s patented sub-sonic sound analysis technology. The CVR technology offers the potential to non-invasively interpret blood flow within the human body in order to detect anatomical illness. The first application of the technology is a device geared toward the detection and measurement of carotid arterial stenosis. The diagnostic device will potentially provide a cost-effective tool to assess the most direct risk factor for Ischemic Stroke. Additionally, the CVR technology will be used to analyze levels of stenosis in other human arterial systems, along with various other medical and industrial applications. INNOVATION: The CVR Carotid Stenotic Scan (CSS)
The Carotid Stenotic Scan (CSS) is a screening tool designed to detect and measure carotid arterial stenosis or occlusion for the purpose of identifying patients at risk for Ischemic Stroke. The CSS provides a synergistic tool which complements other stroke screening technology such as Duplex Doppler ultrasound (DUS), magnetic resonance angiography (MRA), and computed tomography angiography (CTA). CVR’s screening device is non-emissive, non-invasive, does not require a certified technician, can be conducted in a few minutes, and has a per scan price point that is significantly advantageous as an initial screening tool when compared to the resource requirement associated with other technologies.
At what stage of development is the Carotid Stenotic Scan (CSS)?
Currently CVR is entering the Clinical phase of the development process. The final market version of the CSS is being assembled and prepped for Pivotal Trials, which will then be submitted for FDA 510(k) clearance.
CVR’s technology makes a connection between fluid flow and sub-sonic frequencies in order to determine the presence of arterial disease/blockage. The technology, in its present configuration, detects and analyzes the low frequency vibrations that radiate passively from the carotid arteries. Blood flowing through the carotid arteries produces wave patterns which are shaped and altered by the presence of any irregularities on the inner walls of those arteries. The wave patterns are captured and mathematically analyzed through CVR’s patented algorithms which generate an accurate percentage range of stenosis (including 100% stenosis, or complete occlusion). This analysis is then followed by immediate interpretation with details concerning the inner surface of the carotid arteries against which there is blood flow. Shareholder Information

CVR Intellectual Property Summary & Legal Comment
CVR has instituted a comprehensive IP policy to cover several aspects of the CSS device as it prepares to go to market. The IP includes 1 issued US patent, US 9,101,274. An European Counterpart is pending at the moment that parallels the allowed US case. A continuation-in-part, Application No. 14/803,389 is also pending, with a priority date extending back to June 24, 2010.
In June of 2015, CVR file two applications covering the Yoke, utilized for holding the sensors and positioning on a patient, and methods of quantifying and detecting sounds in the carotid artery. Both applications were converted into PCT applications in June of 2016 and now await conversion into the US and other jurisdictions at the end of 2017. These applications have been assigned to a joint venture, but an exclusive license remains with CVR.
In June of 2016, CVR filed five additional provisional patent applications covering several aspects of the CSS device, including additional methods for detecting blockage in a fluid flow vessel, disposable sensing elements (think of the razor/razor blade model), methods for generating clean data for analysis, methods for detecting sounds and determining stenosis, methods for determining appropriate location for detecting fluid flow in the body, and methods for detecting and ablating stenosis.
In December of 2016, CVR filed an additional provisional application directed towards sensing pods that do not need a yoke, in order to position the sensing pods for determining stenosis.
Finally, in January of 2017, CVR filed two design patents, one directed towards the device cart itself, and the second to a version of the Yoke for positioning sensors on a patient.
A summary of these are included in the attached Excel file. These filings are highly confidential and not to be disseminated without authorization by CVR.
CVR continues to develop and expand its IP portfolio as development continues. It is expected that additional applications will be filed to cover final versions of any product that will go to market. Such protection will include patent, design patent, trademark, trade dress, and copyright, where applicable.
CVR also expects that the several pending provisional applications will be converted into PCT applications and that the pending PCT applications (now assigned to a joint venture), will also be converted in due course.
