WALTHAM, MA – November 8, 2016 – Corindus Vascular Robotics, Inc. [NYSE MKT: CVRS], a leading developer of precision vascular robotics, today reported financial results for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2016.
Recent Highlights and Accomplishments
“While our revenue for the quarter was limited, I am very pleased with our solid operational progress,” said Mark Toland, President and Chief Executive Officer of Corindus. “We have made important investments in new talent, and now have a solid leadership team in place as we enter the new year.”
“Following the recent FDA clearance for GRX, our new product offering drove significant customer enthusiasm at the recent TCT annual meeting in Washington, D.C, affirming our clinical, economic and strategic value as we set out to build robust cardiovascular robotic programs. We are confident the company will continue to make headway on our new strategic vision as we enter 2017.”
Third Quarter 2016 Financial Results
Revenues for the third quarter of 2016 were $0.7 million compared to $0.2 million for the same period in the prior year. The increase is due primarily to CorPath System revenue and an increase in cassette, accessory and service revenue compared to the prior year period.
Gross loss was $532,000 in the third quarter of 2016, compared to a gross loss of $510,000 in the third quarter of 2015. Cost of revenues for the third quarter of 2016 continued to include the effect of under-utilization of production facilities which is expected to continue throughout 2016.
Research and development expenses were $2.7 million for the third quarter of 2016 compared to $2.3 million in the third quarter of 2015. The increase is primarily due to employee compensation expense as well as the timing of prototype material purchases associated with the second generation CorPath System. Selling, general and administrative expenses were $4.6 million in the third quarter of 2016, compared to $3.9 million in the third quarter of 2015. The increase is primarily due to incremental stock-based compensation expense related to recent leadership team additions during 2016.
Net loss was $8.1 million for the third quarter of 2016, compared to a net loss of $7.1 million in the third quarter of 2015.
Cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2016 were $18.1 million.
Corindus previously announced expectations of 2016 revenues in the range of $4.0 to $5.0 million. This was based on the establishment of an estimated six to nine robotic programs in the second half of 2016. The Company continues to expect to establish six to nine robotic programs in the second half of 2016 at pricing levels consistent with prior guidance.
Some sales of CorPath 200 Systems from the fourth quarter will include an upgrade to the new GRX system; accounting rules will require deferral of revenue for those installations until the CorPath GRX product is delivered in 2017. Thus, the Company expects 2016 revenue to be in the range of $2.5 million to $3.5 million for the year.
The Company expects 2017 to represent significant commercial improvement over 2016, with the implementation of at least 25 new cardiovascular programs and revenue above $12 million.

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."
