Submitted Neurovascular Indication Marking Important Step toward Addressing Stroke Market; Raised $19.8 Million to Fund Ongoing Innovation
WALTHAM,Mass. – March 12,2019 – Corindus Vascular Robotics, Inc. (NYSE American: CVRS), a leading developer of precision vascular robotics,today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and year ended December 31,2018.
“2019 is poised to be another significant year for Corindus. The successful completion of the world’s first-in-human remote robotic PCI procedure in India in December represents an exciting milestone for the future of our technology. Doctors around the world are embracing the technology and its life-saving potential for patients with limited access to care. Physicians increasingly understand that building clinical knowledge and expertise in robotics is a prerequisite to telerobotic intervention. As a result, we expect to see continued positive momentum and have seen a shortening of the sales cycle from initial discussion to installation of our robotic platform. Through the expansion of existing programs in the U.S., increased utilization and the broadening of our global footprint, we believe we are on the right path to serve patients and build shareholder value,” said Mark Toland, President and Chief Executive Officer.
“Moreover, we have advanced our neurovascular work and look forward to receiving clearance from the FDA for the neurovascular indication for the CorPath GRX. We believe our technology has the potential to address the large unmet need and transform the standard of care for stroke patients, where access is limited and time to treatment is critical. We expect the private placement we recently completed, along with the potential strategic partnership we are pursuing to provide us with the added financial flexibility to bring this indication to market,” added Toland.
Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2018 totaled $4.7 million, compared to $4.2 million in the same period of the prior year. During the quarter, Corindus installed six new CorPath GRX Systems and one system upgrade, increasing the installed base of CorPath GRX to 52 systems.
Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2018 totaled $1.9 million, compared to $1.2 million in the same period of the prior year.
