CAESAREA, Israel — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 7, 2015 — Mazor Robotics Ltd. (TASE: MZOR) (NASDAQGM: MZOR), a developer of innovative guidance systems and complementary products, announced today its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015.
“During the first quarter we sold a Renaissance system in the U.S., Germany and Taiwan, increasing our install base to 86 systems, which represents a 26% increase compared to 68 systems at the end of the year-ago period,” commented Ori Hadomi, Mazor's Chief Executive Officer. “There were a record number of clinical procedures using the Renaissance system in the first quarter. We are encouraged with the continued growth in the number of spine and brain procedures which clearly demonstrates that surgeons and hospital administrators are realizing the clinical and economic benefits of the Renaissance system. We recently surpassed the 10,000th procedure performed globally with Renaissance. While this is a significant achievement, it represents a small fraction of the overall market opportunity. Our entire organization is focused on executing our sales strategy and accelerating Renaissance’s adoption as the standard of care.”
FIRST QUARTER 2015 FINANCIAL RESULTS ON IFRS BASIS ("GAAP")
Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $4.5 million compared to $4.9 million in the year-ago first quarter. U.S. generated revenue decreased to $2.7 million compared to $3.6 million in the year-ago quarter, as the Company sold one Renaissance system in the U.S. market during the first quarter of 2015 compared to three systems sold in the 2014 first quarter. International revenue increased to $1.8 million from $1.3 million reported in the first quarter of 2014. The Company sold two Renaissance systems in the International market compared to two systems sold in the 2014 first quarter, demonstrating higher pricing due to a one-time direct sale in Taiwan. Revenue from system kit sales, services and other, increased to $2.7 million in the first quarter of 2015, representing a 35% increase compared to $2.0 million in the first quarter of 2014, mainly attributed to increased utilization of the Renaissance system.
Gross margin for three months ended March 31, 2015 was 75.7% compared to 78.9% in the year-ago quarter, due to lower system sales in the first quarter of 2015.
Total operating expenses were $8.5 million compared to $7.5 million in the first quarter of 2014, primarily reflecting the Company’s increased investments in sales and marketing activities including a commission of $0.3 million related to the one-time direct sale in Taiwan. Operating loss was $5.1 million compared to an operating loss of $3.6 million in the year-ago first quarter. Net loss for the first quarter of 2015 was $5.2 million, or $0.12 per share, compared to a net loss of $3.6 million, or $0.09 per share in the first quarter of 2014.
