Stereotaxis Reports 2022 Second Quarter Financial Results

ST. LOUIS, Aug. 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Stereotaxis (NYSE: STXS), a pioneer and global leader in surgical robotics for minimally invasive endovascular intervention, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

“Despite macro pressures and the poor optics of our financial results, Stereotaxis is making significant progress commercially and technologically,” said David Fischel, Chairman and CEO. “I am pleased with our progress and confident in where we stand and the path ahead of us. We see continued demand for our technology, are advancing a transformative innovation pipeline, and are assembling an all-star commercial team, all while maintaining financial stability and strength.”

“We received three orders for Genesis systems during the second quarter, two since our last call and one of which will become a second active robot at a prestigious US hospital. The recent CE Mark submission for the MAGiC ablation catheter is reflective of the methodical progress being made across multiple fronts on our strategic innovation plan. We continue to anticipate multiple highly impactful technologies to be launched throughout 2023 and beyond. As these launches approach we are placing increased focus on ensuring the right commercial team, infrastructure and processes are in place to drive substantial revenue growth. The addition of highly experienced commercial leaders to our team is a testament to the opportunity in front of us.”

2022 Second Quarter Financial Results
Revenue for the second quarter of 2022 totaled $6.2 million, compared to $9.1 million in the prior year second quarter with the decrease primarily driven by lower revenue recognition of system sales in the current quarter. System revenue for the second quarter was $0.6 million and recurring revenue was $5.6 million.

Gross margin for the second quarter of 2022 was 76% of revenue, with system gross margin of 16% and recurring revenue gross margin of 83%. Operating expenses in the quarter of $9.8 million include $2.7 million in non-cash stock compensation expense. Excluding stock compensation expense, adjusted operating expenses were $7.2 million, consistent with the prior year second quarter.

Operating loss and net loss for the second quarter of 2022 were both approximately ($5.2) million, compared to a ($3.4) million operating loss and a ($1.2) million net loss in the previous year. Net loss in the prior year quarter reflects a favorable $2.2 million adjustment for the forgiveness of the Paycheck Protection Loan. Adjusted operating loss and adjusted net loss for the quarter, excluding non-cash stock compensation expense, were both ($2.5) million. Negative free cash flow for the second quarter was ($1.8) million.

Cash Balance and Liquidity
At June 30, 2022, Stereotaxis had cash and cash equivalents, including restricted cash, of $35.1 million and no debt.

Forward Looking Expectations
Revenue for the first half of this year represents a nadir in performance with results in the second half expected to be substantially higher. Stereotaxis’ current system backlog of over $12 million supports its prior guidance of overall revenue growth in 2022. While this guidance remains achievable, significant variability in hospital construction timelines suggests that a sufficient portion of backlog may be recognized as revenue in the following year, introducing caution to this guidance. Substantial and consistent revenue growth in the coming years is expected to be supported by new technology launches and an enhanced commercial organization. Stereotaxis expects to end the year with approximately $32 million in cash and cash equivalents, maintaining a robust balance sheet that allows it to reach profitability without the need for additional financings.
