2018 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Financial Results


Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2018 totaled $7.3 million. Recurring revenue for the quarter was $6.7 million and system revenue was $0.5 million. Revenue for the full year 2018 totaled $29.3 million. Recurring revenue for the full year 2018 of $27.8 million represents a 3% increase above the recurring revenue for the full year 2017. System revenue for the full year 2018 of $1.6 million declined from $4.3 million in 2017, primarily reflecting the impact from the shipment of two Niobe® Systems to an international distributor in 2017.


Gross margin for the fourth quarter and full year 2018 was approximately 80%. Operating expenses in the fourth quarter were $6.4 million, up from $5.9 million in the prior year quarter, predominantly driven by increased investment in R&D. Operating expenses for the full year 2018 totaled $26.1 million, down slightly from $26.3 million in 2017, with increased R&D investment offset by decreased general and administrative expenses. Operating loss and net loss in the fourth quarter were ($0.6) million. Operating loss and net income for the full year 2018 were ($2.5) million and $0.1 million, respectively. Negative free cash flow for the full year 2018 was ($2.8) million, compared to ($4.8) million for the full year 2017. The net income for 2018 represents the first full year of positive net income for the Company in its history.

At December 31, 2018, Stereotaxis had cash and cash equivalents of $10.8 million, no debt, and $3.3 million in unused borrowing capacity on its revolving credit facility, for total net liquidity of $14.1 million.
