May 7, 2019 20:05 UTC

WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Corindus Vascular Robotics, Inc. (NYSE American: CVRS), a leading developer of precision vascular robotics, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2019.

Recent Financial Highlights and Business Accomplishments:

  • Revenue totaled $3.0 million during the first quarter of 2019, including sale and installation of nine CorPath GRX Systems;
  • Recorded purchase orders for 11 CorPath GRX Systems, an increase of 83% compared to purchase orders received in Q4 2018 and 267% growth compared to the purchase orders received in Q1 2018;
  • Sold 602 single-use cassettes in the quarter, generating revenue of nearly $0.3 million;
  • Completed the first-ever clinical robotic-assisted percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures in Japan in partnership with Takafumi Ueno, MD, PhD, Director of Interventional Cardiology, Center of Cardiovascular Disease, Kurume University Hospital, marking initial enrollment in a post-market study of CorPath GRX;
  • Received CE mark for a neurovascular indication, allowing the Company to sell neurovascular robots in 33 countries that accept CE mark;
  • Received an order for the first CorPath GRX System in Italy;
  • Continued advancement of co-development and co-commercialization partnership discussions to advance the neurovascular robotic platform with remote capabilities; and
  • Raised approximately $19.8 million in gross proceeds in a private placement sale of unregistered Corindus shares to a large institutional investor and existing investors (Hudson Executive Capital and BioStar Ventures):
    • Per the terms of the transaction, Corindus was required to register the investor-owned shares on a Form S-3 Registration Statement, for which we plan to file the final prospectus tomorrow.
    • Although now registered for potential sale by the investors sometime in the future, the shares sold in this transaction continue to be subject to the six-month lockup period required in the private placement transaction.

“We are pleased with the positive trends in adoption and usage of our robotic technology during the first quarter of 2019. The eleven purchase orders for the CorPath GRX System received and a record number of disposable cassettes in the quarter reflect our continued momentum. Customers are also increasingly opting for service agreements, reflecting their commitment to robotic procedures over the long-term,” said Mark Toland, President and Chief Executive Officer.

“We continue to build out our global footprint with new installations in Japan and Europe and believe the addition of CE mark for neurovascular treatment will enable us to expand our opportunities in the European markets. Ongoing demonstrations at multiple medical conferences continue to drive demand, as physicians and hospital administrators increasingly embrace the power of robotics today, with potential to overcome geographic disparities through access to life-saving interventions tomorrow. 2019 is shaping up to be an exciting year of growth for Corindus,” concluded Toland.
