Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results

Revenue for the second quarter of 2017 was $2.3 million compared to $0.5 million for the same period in the prior year. The increase is due primarily to CorPath GRX Systems and capital upgrade sales.

Installed three new CorPath GRX Systems in the second quarter of 2017, increasing the installed base of CorPath GRX to 16 systems and the total installed base to 51 CorPath Systems. Shipped 303 cassettes in the second quarter 2017. The installed base of 16 CorPath GRX systems accounted for almost 90% of all CorPath cassettes shipped for revenue in the second quarter.

Gross profit was $58,000 for the second quarter of 2017, compared to a gross loss of $0.6 million for the second quarter of 2016. Cost of revenues for the second quarter of 2017 continued to include the effect of under-utilization of production facilities as well as the cost of CorPath GRX system upgrades installed pursuant to contractual service arrangements with no corresponding revenue in the period.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $5.9 million in the second quarter of 2017, compared to $4.4 million in the second quarter of 2016. The increase is primarily due to increased compensation and travel expenses associated primarily with incremental sales headcount, investment in our medical education and international sales initiatives, and incremental non-cash stock-based compensation expense related to the CEO and Commercial leadership transitions during 2016. Research and development expenses were $2.5 million for the second quarter of 2017 compared to $2.3 million in the second quarter of 2016.

Net loss was $8.4 million for the second quarter of 2017, compared to a net loss of $7.6 million in the second quarter of 2016.

Cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2017 were $35.2 million.

2017 Guidance

Corindus continues to expect full year 2017 revenue in the range of $13 million to $15 million as well as the implementation of at least 25 new cardiovascular programs in 2017.
