Significant progress made to supply chain to support cost improvements and scaling

SAN FRANCISCO – December 1, 2022 – Tivic Health® Systems, Inc. (“Tivic”) (Nasdaq: TIVC), a commercial-phase health technology company that develops and commercializes bioelectronic medicine, today announced it has hired ALOM Technologies Corporation (“ALOM”), a leader in global supply chain product and service delivery programs, to manage product supply chain, assembly, and logistics.

Headquartered in the U.S., ALOM will be the company’s 3rd party logistics (3PL) warehouse, fulfillment, and production partner responsible for storing, packaging, and shipping Tivic product orders. Operating out of 19 global locations, ALOM’s technology-driven supply chain offerings include inventory management, contract manufacturing, procurement, fulfillment, warehouse operations, and logistics systems technology.

ALOM is a privately held, woman-owned company with a 25-year history of operational, quality, and sustainability excellence, including two consecutive years as a Multichannel Merchant Top 3PL Provider, and a 2022 Manufacturing Leadership Award recipient by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM). In the medical industry, ALOM is ISO 13485 certified with FDA-registered facilities.

“ALOM’s relationship with Tivic Health brings together two organizations that share a commitment to improving the quality of people’s lives,” said Hannah Kain, president, and CEO, of ALOM. “Leveraging ALOM’s medical supply chain expertise, we have created a customized assembly, fulfillment, and reverse logistics program that delivers on both companies’ core values of technology-driven innovation, quality, and service level excellence.”

“Adding the expertise and technology stack of ALOM empowers us to unify sales channels and optimize fulfillment and shipping so we can focus on scalable growth and customer needs,” said Ryan Sabia, COO of Tivic Health. “We are excited to add ALOM as our strategic partner as we continue to streamline our omnichannel and e-commerce operations.”

The company also recently announced additional cost reduction and margin improvement steps, including:

  • Execution of a manufacturing partnership with Microart Services Inc., which is expected to reduce printed circuit board subassembly costs by up to 70% while increasing scalability in manufacturing.
  • Implementation of a $20 increase in the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) per ClearUP unit.

“Improving gross margin and our scalability are areas of focus for us in 2022. We believe the new relationships with Microart Services and ALOM will help in our cost reduction implementation processes creating a strong foundation for the company as we enter the peak holiday season and the New Year,” added Sabia.
