Stereotaxis Reports 2023 Third Quarter Financial Results
ST. LOUIS, Nov. 9, 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 third quarter ended September 30, 2023.
“Stereotaxis continues to deliver commercial results and advance a robust innovation strategy, while maintaining financial discipline,” said David Fischel, Chairman and CEO. “Revenue growth in the quarter was driven by continued demand for Genesis with revenue recognition of two robotic systems. System revenue growth counteracted the loss of royalties and residual pressure on procedures. A robust system pipeline along with existing system backlog of $13 million supports continued growth in the coming quarters.”
“We are making broad, methodical progress across the late stages of a comprehensive innovation strategy. Approval to enroll patients in a European clinical study of the MAGiC ablation catheter is expected within weeks. In the US, we determined it reasonable to submit a PMA Supplement for MAGiC and plan to make the regulatory submission prior to year-end. This approach holds the potential to significantly accelerate availability of MAGiC to physicians and patients who would benefit from it. Our collaborations with Abbott and MicroPort, and internal development of a next-generation highly-accessible robot, vascular interventional devices, and a digital surgery solution, continue to make meaningful progress. We remain confident these collectively drive a strategic transformation that makes robotics broadly accessible and impactful across endovascular surgery.”
“Reduced cash utilization reflects continued attention to financial discipline and benefits from the significant build up in inventory in previous quarters. We remain cognizant of the importance of maintaining financial strength and are confident in our ability to realize our innovation strategy with our current resources.”
2023 Third Quarter Financial Results
Revenue for the third quarter of 2023 totaled $7.8 million, compared to $7.7 million in the prior year third quarter. System revenue for the quarter was $3.5 million and recurring revenue was $4.3 million, compared to $2.4 million and $5.3 million in the prior year third quarter, respectively. System revenue growth reflects revenue recognition on the delivery of two Genesis systems. Recurring revenue was impacted by the absence of catheter royalties received in the prior year.
Gross margin for the third quarter of 2023 was 52% of revenue. Recurring revenue gross margin was 80% and system gross margin was 18%. Operating expenses in the third quarter of $9.7 million include $2.6 million in non-cash stock compensation expense. Excluding non-cash stock compensation expense, adjusted operating expenses in the current quarter were $7.1 million compared to $6.9 million in the prior year third quarter.
Operating loss and net loss for the third quarter of 2023 were ($5.6) million and ($5.4) million, respectively, compared to ($5.1) million and ($4.9) million in the previous year. Adjusted operating loss and adjusted net loss for the quarter, excluding non-cash stock compensation expense, were ($3.0) million and ($2.8) million, respectively, compared to ($2.4) million and ($2.2) million in the previous year. Negative free cash flow for the third quarter was ($1.0) million.
Cash Balance and Liquidity
At September 30, 2023, Stereotaxis had cash and cash equivalents, including restricted cash, of $23.0 million and no debt.
Forward Looking Expectations
Stereotaxis expects continued revenue growth in the coming quarters driven by revenue recognition of system backlog and new system orders. Accelerating revenue growth in subsequent years is expected to be supported by new technology launches.
Stereotaxis expects to end the year with $22 million in cash and no debt. This balance sheet allows us to advance a transformative product ecosystem to market, fund its commercialization, and reach profitability without the need for additional financing.
