Mazor Robotics Announces Financial Results for the Third Quarter 2012 and Provides Update on Operating Progress

Mazor Robotics Ltd. (TASE: MZOR), a developer of innovative surgical robots and complementary products, today filed its financial statements with the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012. The company also provided an update on its progress in installing its Renaissance system in medical centers in the United States and outside the United States.

THIRD QUARTER RESULTS

Revenue for the third quarter was $4.2 million/16.2 million NIS, a 171% increase from the year-ago period of $1.5 million/6.0 million NIS and a 45% sequential increase from revenue of $2.9 million/11.2 million NIS. The significant revenue increase was driven mainly by the strong demand and successful installations of Renaissance systems in the United States.

During the third quarter, recurring revenue accounted for 27% of the Company’s total revenue. Revenue from the U.S. comprised 80% of total revenue. The volume of Renaissance-guided spine surgery procedures, with a focus on complex spine and minimally-invasive surgery markets, continued to grow with average procedures per system, per quarter reaching 17.2, an increase of over 100% in 18 months.

Gross margin of 80% improved from 75% recorded in the second quarter 2012 and above the third quarter 2011 gross margin of 68%.

Operating expenses were $3.5 million/NIS 13.8 million compared to $2.8 million/NIS 10.9 million for the year-ago period.

Net loss for the quarter narrowed to $0.3 million/NIS 1.1 million, or $0.01/NIS 0.05 per share, compared to a net loss of $1.7 million/NIS 6.6 million, or $0.08/NIS 0.30 per share, reported for the third quarter 2011.

Cash, cash equivalents and short term investments for the quarter ended, September 30, 2012, was $21.2 million/ 82.9 million NIS, compared to $17.6 million/ 69.0 million NIS on June 30, 2012. The increase in cash and cash equivalents during the quarter was due to the investment of $7.5 million from a group of institutional and accredited investors, led by Oracle Investment Management.

“Our third quarter operating and financial results reflect the growing global demand for Renaissance systems and the excellent execution of our growth strategy, particularly in the important U.S. market,” said Ori Hadomi, CEO of Mazor Robotics. “In addition to reporting record revenue in the quarter, we took important steps to position Mazor for strong future growth. We continue to diligently build out our sales and marketing resources with the addition of several experienced sales executives, which will allow us to grow key markets in the United States. In addition we have significantly strengthened our financial position with the recent investment from Oracle Management. We will enter 2013 with strong momentum and are increasingly optimistic about our ability to provide a valuable service to hospitals and patients in need of our services.”

THIRD QUARTER AND SUBSEQUENT HIGHLIGHTS

Mazor finalized the financing agreement that it had entered into during the third quarter, securing the first tranche of the investment of $7.5 million from a group of institutional and accredited investors, led by Oracle Investment Management, the investment management company founded by Larry Feinberg.

  • In the quarter, Mazor supplied Geisinger Health System, an integrated health services organization serving more than 2.6 million residents in Pennsylvania, with a Renaissance system
  • Parker Adventist Hospital, an affiliate of the Centura Health System, the largest hospital and healthcare network in Colorado, purchased a Renaissance system
  • Southwest NeuroSpine Institute, a specialty neurosurgery practice in El Paso, Texas, installed the Renaissance system it purchased in July, 2012
  • Mazor entered India with distribution partner Advanced Medical Systems PTE Ltd, and installed a system in Apollo Hospitals Chennai, the flagship hospital of the Apollo Group, one of the largest healthcare groups in Asia with over 8500 beds across 50 hospitals

NINE-MONTH FINANCIAL RESULTS

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, revenue totaled $9.4million/36.6 million NIS, a 156% increase over the $3.7 million/14.3 million NIS reported for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. Gross margin for the nine-month period was 77% compared with 66% for the prior year period.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace. In fact, Forrester reported that 68 percent of technology and business decision-makers characterize wearables as a top priority for 2015. Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts, GM of Platform at FinancialForce.com, will discuss the value of business applications on wearable ...
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network. It creates possibilities for significant value creation and new revenue generating business models via data democratization and ubiquitous analytics across IoT networks. The explosion of data in all forms in IoT requires a more robust and broader lens in order to enable smarter timely actions and better outcomes. Business operations become the key driver of IoT applications and projects. Business operations, IT, and data scientists need advanced analytics t...
