Corindus Vascular Robotics Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2016 Results
Reiterates Financial Outlook for 2017 

Announces 19 Purchase Orders for CorPath System Year to Date 2017


WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE) Corindus Vascular Robotics, Inc. (NYSE MKT:CVRS), a leading developer of precision vascular robotics, today reported financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2016.

Recent Highlights and Accomplishments

    • Announced private placement of common stock bringing aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $45 million to the company. The financing involved a syndicate of well-known institutional healthcare investors along with strategic investors Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE:BSX) and Royal Philips (NYSE:PHG).
    • Expanded into Asia through a strategic distribution agreement with Japan Medicalnext Co., Ltd., a wholly-owned entity of MC Healthcare, Inc. (subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation), as the exclusive distributor of Corindus products in Japan.
      • Japan Medicalnext placed an initial order for twelve CorPath GRX Systems accompanied by an advance of $2 million toward a portion of the purchase price.
    • Received multi-system orders from several large hospital groups exemplifying their commitment to building broad-based cardiovascular robotics programs:
      • In 2016, Corindus received orders for three systems from the Veterans Administration System and for four systems from Baylor Health. Received an order for 900 cassettes from Baylor Health.
      • Year to date 2017, Corindus has received three orders from WakeMed Health & Hospitals. 
    • Received multiple CorPath GRX upgrade purchase orders from existing customers.
      • In the fourth quarter of 2016, Corindus received one purchase order for a GRX upgrade.
      • Year to date 2017, Corindus has received four purchase orders for GRX upgrades.
  • Performed first commercial procedures using the CorPath GRX System in February at New York-Presbyterian, UC San Diego Health, and University of Virginia Health System.

“Corindus is better positioned today than ever in the company’s history, aligning with the evolution in the cardiology sector which is poised to more fully incorporate robotics into practice than ever before,” said Mark Toland, President and Chief Executive Officer of Corindus. “The first commercial cases with the CorPath GRX at prestigious US hospitals, the recent receipt of several multi-system orders, and our recent expansion into Japan demonstrate meaningful continued progress toward our strategic and commercial objectives. Our leadership team is solidly in place, and we are benefiting from the deep and broad experience of our collective team.”

Mr. Toland continued, “With the recent financing which brought approximately $45 million in aggregate gross proceeds to the company, we are excited to accelerate our already strong positive momentum into 2017 and deliver on our expectation to implement at least 25 new cardiovascular programs and reach $13 million to $15 million in revenue for the year.”

Fourth Quarter 2016 Financial Results

Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $0.5 million compared to $0.8 million for the same period in the prior year. The decrease is due primarily to the deferral of revenue on two systems sold in 2016, attributable to a future obligation to upgrade from CorPath 200 to CorPath GRX. 

Installed four new CorPath Systems in the fourth quarter of 2016, increasing the total installed base to 45 CorPath Systems. Shipped 262 cassettes in the fourth quarter 2016.

Gross loss was $1.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2016, compared to a gross loss of $0.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2015. Cost of revenues for the fourth quarter of 2016 continued to include the effect of under-utilization of production facilities.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $5.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2016, compared to $4.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. The increase is primarily due to incremental stock-based compensation expense related to the CEO transition during 2016. Research and development expenses were $2.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2016 compared to $2.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. The increase is primarily due to higher employee compensation expense as well as the timing of prototype material purchases associated with the second generation CorPath System.

Net loss was $9.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2016, compared to a net loss of $7.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2015.


2016 Financial Results

Revenue for 2016 was $2.8 million compared to $2.7 million for 2015. The increase is due primarily to higher service revenue compared to the prior year period.

Gross loss was $2.2 million in 2016, compared to a gross loss of $1.0 million in 2015. Cost of revenues for 2016 continued to include the effect of under-utilization of production facilities.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $19.6 million in 2016, compared to $16.1 million in 2015. The increase is primarily due to incremental stock-based compensation expense related to the CEO transition during 2016, as well as increased sales team salaries and commissions. Research and development expenses were $10.3 million for 2016 compared to $10.0 million in 2015. The increase is primarily due to higher employee compensation expense.

 

Net loss was $33.1 million for 2016, compared to a net loss of $28.8 million in 2015.

 

Cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2016, were $9.2 million. Corindus announced in February 2017 a private placement of common stock raising aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $45 million to the company.

 

2017 Guidance

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

About Corindus Vascular Robotics, Inc.

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." For additional information, visit www.corindus.com, and follow @CorindusInc.
