Stereotaxis Reports 2019 Second Quarter Financial Results
ST. LOUIS, MO, August 8, 2019 – Stereotaxis (OTCQX: STXS), the global leader in innovative robotic technologies for the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019. In a separate press release issued concurrently with this release, Stereotaxis announced a $25 million private placement equity financing.
“The second quarter was an exciting period for Stereotaxis and a pivotal turning point in our effort to reestablish a long-term growth trajectory,” said David Fischel, Chairman and CEO. “Since showcasing our innovation accomplishments and strategy at the Heart Rhythm Society conference in May, many existing and potential customers have visited our headquarters to view our innovations first hand. The broad, enthusiastic response validates that our innovation and strategic decisions were sound and that our plan is medically and commercially attractive. We are confident in our expectation for significant revenue growth in the years ahead.”
As mentioned previously, in the second quarter Stereotaxis announced several innovation accomplishments and programs:
|●||Stereotaxis Genesis™ RMN System – initial launch of a next generation robotic system that is designed to provide the established benefits and reliability of robotic magnetic navigation in an architecture that is faster, smaller, lighter and more flexible.|
|●||Stereotaxis Imaging Model S – launch of an advanced x-ray imaging solution offered in combination with Stereotaxis Genesis RMN to increase the accessibility and affordability of robotics in electrophysiology.|
|●||Proprietary Magnetic Ablation Catheter – development program proceeding on an advanced next-generation robotically-navigated magnetic ablation catheter.|
|●||Acutus Mapping Integration & OpenMappingAPI – integration with Acutus’ novel mapping system was successfully accomplished using a software architecture that facilitates a more open, collaborative environment.|
David Fischel continued, “With the financing announced today, Stereotaxis has the financial strength to accelerate the development and commercial introduction of these innovations, as well as to fund a second wave of innovations in electrophysiology and beyond.”
Second Quarter 2019 Financial Results
Revenue for the second quarter of 2019 totaled $6.8 million compared to $7.6 million in the prior year second quarter. This decrease was primarily due to reduced service revenue from system moves as well as certain inactive accounts that have aged and no longer maintain active service contracts, partially offset by a modest increase in procedure volume compared to the prior year second quarter.
Gross margin in the quarter was 83% of revenue, consistent with the 82% reported in the second quarter of 2018. Operating expenses in the second quarter of $7.1 million increased from $6.8 million in the prior year quarter. The increase in operating expenses reflects significantly increased investment in research and development with reduced general, administrative and selling expenses.
Operating loss and net loss in the second quarter were ($1.5) million and ($1.4) million, respectively, compared to ($0.6) million for both in 2018. Negative free cash flow for the quarter was ($0.5) and was consistent with previously provided guidance for 2019.
Cash Balance and Liquidity
At June 30, 2019, Stereotaxis had cash and cash equivalents of $8.5 million and no debt. Pro forma, including the financing announced today and deducting financing related fees and expenses, Stereotaxis would have held approximately $31.6 million in cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2019 with a stockholders’ equity balance of $21.8 million.
Full Year 2019 Expectations
Stereotaxis’ innovation accomplishments support an expectation of robust and consistent overall revenue growth beginning in the coming quarters and accelerating throughout 2020.
Without considering the financing announced today, Stereotaxis would have reiterated its expectation to end 2019 with greater than $6.0 million in net cash and to reach profitability without the need for additional capital.
