press release providing a strategic business update. A copy of the press release

The information furnished under Item 7.01, including the exhibit related

Item 8.01. Other Events.


In the press release, the Company addressed the following strategic updates:



  ? The Company and Lucid will prioritize near-term Lucid and Veris Health
    commercialization efforts.

  ? The companies have implemented a workforce reduction of approximately 20
    percent, product portfolio streamlining, and other cost-cutting measures which
    seek to lower quarterly cash burn by at least 25 percent.

  ? Specifically, pursuant to this initiative, the Company and Lucid plan to take
    the following steps, among others:




Lucid



  ? continue to drive EsoGuard testing volume through ongoing engagement of sales
    personnel with primary care physicians, specialists and institutions, with an
    increasing focus on closing larger strategic accounts and new market
    development initiatives;
  ? maintain current team of approximately forty sales professionals, having
    completed targeted layoffs and closed prior vacancies;
  ? shift sales leadership attention from recruiting and hiring to ongoing
    engagement with large institutional and strategic accounts, while continuing
    to drive productivity of the current team;
  ? maintain its team of nurse practitioners and other clinical personnel to
    support testing volume growth through existing Lucid Test Centers (LTC) in
    eleven states, and its burgeoning satellite LTC program, whereby Lucid
    personnel perform EsoCheck cell sampling procedures at prescribing physicians'
    offices;
  ? continue to invest in LucidDx Labs, Lucid's CLIA-certified commercial clinical
    laboratory, to assure EsoGuard testing capacity and drive quality improvements
    and cost efficiencies;
  ? complete ongoing clinical utility studies to support in-network coverage;
  ? delay completion of the EsoGuard BE-2 study to the second half of 2023; and
  ? pause further development of the EsoCure Esophageal Ablation device.











PAVmed



  ? with respect to the Company's majority-owned subsidiary Veris Health:


  ? continue to drive commercial adoption of the Veris Cancer Care Platform
    utilizing its existing sales personnel, and expand the commercial team only
    when commercial traction has been well-established;
  ? delay development and regulatory submission of the implantable physiologic
    monitor to the second half of 2023; and
  ? focus its workforce on near-term commercialization of the Veris Cancer Care
    platform, having already eliminated certain technology positions focused on
    future data analytics, while retaining personnel directly involved in customer
    integration and technical support;


  ? continue research and product development activities in support of Lucid
    commercialization, including next generation EsoGuard and EsoCheck products;
  ? continue product development activities in support of Veris commercialization,
    namely its implantable physiologic monitor, as discussed above;
  ? continue its joint early-stage research and development project with Novosound
    Ltd. to explore applying its groundbreaking ultrasound technology to
    next-generation intravascular ultrasound imaging;
  ? continue limited business development activities focused on high value,
    near-term accretive opportunities that are synergistic with existing
    commercial activity;
  ? indefinitely pause or halt all other product development activities including
    CarpX, PortIO and NextFlo; and
  ? pursue additional cost-cutting initiatives including not paying annual cash
    bonuses.
