Stereotaxis Reports 2022 Full Year Financial Results
ST. LOUIS, MO, Mar. 3, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Stereotaxis (NYSE: STXS), a pioneer and global leader in surgical robotics for minimally invasive endovascular intervention, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2022.
“This year is poised to be an important and exciting year for Stereotaxis, as we bring multiple strategic innovations to key regulatory and commercial milestones,” said David Fischel, Chairman and CEO. “This transition to a new product ecosystem is strategically transformational as it addresses structural inefficiencies, dependencies and limitations while setting us up for significant growth.”
“Technology developments continue to advance well, and we expect regulatory approvals and commercial launches this year for our proprietary robotically-navigated ablation catheter, smaller self-shielding robot, and cloud-based connectivity app. We also expect regulatory submissions for a guidewire that expands our robotic technology into several new indications, a comprehensive product ecosystem in China, and an integrated operating room display. These innovations collectively serve as a foundational product ecosystem for a high-growth medical robotics company poised to transform endovascular surgery.”
“The effort to grow revenues while in the midst of this transition was challenged in 2022. We experienced growth in system orders, but delays in system placements led to a decline in overall revenue. We continue to see a healthy pipeline for systems and expect growth in orders this year. We expect double-digit revenue growth in 2023 driven by revenue recognition of our backlog and new system orders.”
“We retain a strong balance sheet which allows us to bring our transformative product ecosystem to market, fund its commercialization, and reach profitability.”
2022 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Financial Results
Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2022 totaled $7.3 million, compared to $8.2 million in the prior year fourth quarter. System revenue of $2.2 million and recurring revenue of $5.1 million, compared to $2.3 million and $5.7 million, respectively, in the prior year fourth quarter. Revenue for the full year 2022 totaled $28.1 million compared to $35.0 million in 2021. Full year system revenue was $6.8 million compared to $11.2 million in the prior year as hospital construction delays impacted the timing of order conversion. We started 2023 with system backlog of $14.8 million. Full year recurring revenue was $21.3 million compared to $22.9 million, reflecting procedure volatility and the timing of service renewals.
Gross margin for the fourth quarter and full year 2022 were approximately 59% and 66% of revenue, respectively. Full year gross margins were 82% for recurring revenue and 15% for system revenue. System gross margins reflect significant allocations of fixed overhead expenses. Operating expenses in the fourth quarter were $8.8 million. Excluding $2.6 million in non-cash stock compensation expense, adjusted operating expenses in the current quarter were $6.2 million, down from the prior year adjusted operating expenses of $6.7 million. Adjusted operating expenses for the full year 2022 were $26.8 million, consistent with $26.9 million in the prior year.
Operating loss and net loss for the fourth quarter of 2022 were ($4.5) million and ($4.2) million, respectively, compared to ($3.4) million for both in the previous year. Adjusted operating loss and adjusted net loss for the quarter, excluding non-cash stock compensation expense, were ($1.9) million, and ($1.6) million, respectively, compared to ($0.8) million for both in the previous year. For the full year 2022, adjusted operating loss of ($8.3) million and adjusted net loss of ($7.8) million compared to an adjusted operating loss of ($3.6) million and an adjusted net loss of ($1.4) million in the prior year. Net loss in the prior year included a favorable $2.2 million adjustment for the forgiveness of the Paycheck Protection Loan. Negative free cash flow for the full year 2022 was ($10.8) million, compared to ($4.3) million for the full year 2021, reflecting a $2.4 million one-time facility investment and an approximately $3.0 million increase in inventory.
Cash Balance and Liquidity
At December 31, 2022, Stereotaxis had cash and investments, including restricted cash, of $29.7 million and no debt.
Forward Looking Expectations
Stereotaxis expects double-digit revenue growth in 2023 driven by revenue recognition of system backlog and new system orders. System orders are also expected to increase compared to 2022, supporting sustained growth expectations. Accelerating revenue growth in the coming years is expected to be supported by new technology launches, but 2023 revenue expectations do not incorporate any material contributions from these innovations.
Stereotaxis’ strong balance sheet allows it to advance its transformative product ecosystem to market, fund its commercialization, and reach profitability without the need for additional financings.
