Conference Call Wednesday, January 18, at 8:00am ET
WALTHAM, MA — JANUARY 17, 2017 — Corindus Vascular Robotics, Inc. [NYSE MKT: CVRS], a leading developer of precision vascular robotics, announced today select business highlights from fourth quarter and full year 2016 and updated 2017 financial guidance. The Company will be hosting a conference call on Wednesday, January 18, 2017 at 8:00am ET to discuss these results and other recent achievements.
“Our fourth quarter accomplishments reflect meaningful progress toward our strategic objectives,” said Mark Toland, President and Chief Executive Officer of Corindus. “Importantly, we are ramping up System placements with five new Systems ordered and one new upgrade in the fourth quarter. Four of these orders were made by Baylor Health, a large hospital system, from whom we also received a purchase order for 900 cassettes, delivering on our commitment to build sustainable cardiovascular robotic programs.”
Mr. Toland continued, “Following the recent FDA 510(k) clearance of CorPath GRX, our second-generation system, we are on plan to begin commercial shipments late this month. We are confident in our expectation for the implementation of more than 25 new cardiovascular programs in 2017, which we anticipate will contribute to our $13 million to $15 million in overall revenue for the year.”
2017 Financial Guidance
Corindus is updating expectations for full year 2017 revenue to be in the range of $13 million to $15 million versus previous expectations for 2017 revenue to be above $12 million; the increase is due to commercial progress in the fourth quarter 2016, trends entering 2017 and strong market interest for the recently cleared CorPath GRX System. Corindus expects the implementation of at least 25 new cardiovascular programs in 2017 which is unchanged from previous expectations.
Corindus had approximately $9.2 million in cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2016. To support future operating and capital needs, the Company is in active discussions to obtain additional funding through potential strategic partners who would be investing in and working with Corindus; however, there can be no assurance that any such funding will be available.
Corindus expects to issue a full release of its fourth quarter and full year 2016 financial results in early March.

Corindus Vascular Robotics, Inc. is a global technology leader in robotic-assisted vascular interventions. The company's CorPath System is the first FDA-cleared medical device to bring robotic precision to interventional procedures. During the procedure, the interventional cardiologist sits at a radiation-shielded workstation to advance guide catheters, stents, and guidewires with millimeter-by-millimeter precision. The workstation allows the physician greater control and the freedom from wearing heavy lead protective equipment that causes musculoskeletal injuries. With the CorPath System, Corindus Vascular Robotics brings robotic precision to interventional procedures to help optimize clinical outcomes and minimize the costs associated with complications of improper stent placement during manual procedures. Corindus stands behind its product with its unique $1,000 hospital credit "One Stent Program."
