Exhibit 99.1



Stereotaxis Reports 2020 Full Year Financial Results


St. Louis, Feb. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Stereotaxis (NYSE: STXS), the global leader in innovative robotic technologies for the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2020.


“2020 was a year of significant progress despite a challenging macro environment,” said David Fischel, Chairman and CEO. “The highlight of the year was receipt of FDA clearance for the Genesis RMN System and successful installations of the first systems in the United States and Europe. We begin 2021 with purchase orders for five robotic systems reflecting the initial green shoots of a broad-based global resurgence in interest in our robotic technology.”


“Stereotaxis continues to advance a robust innovation pipeline. Our proprietary robotically-navigated magnetic ablation catheter is poised to enter formal validation studies and on track for EU commercialization and initiation of a US pivotal trial in late 2021. We have made methodical progress on a set of additional innovations and expect to be in a position to showcase them at the end of the year. We are confident in the positive impact these innovations will have on patients, physicians, providers, and on Stereotaxis’ financial and strategic foundation.”


“Our commercial and technological progress was accomplished while remaining prudent with shareholder capital. Stereotaxis starts the year in the strongest financial position of its history with $44 million in cash and a modest controlled operating loss as we invest in meaningful innovation and growth initiatives.”


2020 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Financial Results


Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2020 totaled $6.8 million, consistent with the prior year fourth quarter. Recurring revenue for the quarter was $5.9 million and system revenue was $0.7 million. Revenue for the full year 2020 totaled $26.6 million. Recurring revenue of $22.0 million for the full year 2020 declined 15% from the prior year, primarily due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on procedure volumes. System revenue of $3.6 million for the full year 2020 increased from $2.1 million in the prior year reflecting the successful installation of our initial Genesis RMN Systems.


Gross margin for the fourth quarter and full year 2020 were approximately 77% and 71% of revenue, respectively. Operating expenses in the fourth quarter were $6.4 million, consistent with the $6.3 million in the prior year quarter. Operating expenses for the full year 2020 totaled $25.7 million, down from $27.6 million in the prior year. Operating loss and net loss in the fourth quarter were both ($1.2) million. For the full year 2020, operating loss was ($6.7) million and net loss was ($6.6) million. Negative free cash flow for the full year 2020 was ($3.3) million, and including funding from the payroll protection program was ($1.2) million, compared to ($4.6) million for the full year 2019.


Cash Balance and Liquidity


At December 31, 2020, Stereotaxis had cash and cash equivalents of $44.2 million.




Forward Looking Expectations


Stereotaxis anticipates robust double-digit revenue growth in 2021, with robotic system revenue of $10-$20 million. Stereotaxis’ balance sheet allows it to reach profitability without the need for additional financings.
