- Company to host conference call and webcast today, Wednesday, May 17that 8:30 am EDT -
LYON, France, May 17, 2023 - EDAP TMS SA (Nasdaq: EDAP), the global leader in robotic energy-based therapies, announced today unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023.
“After achieving record results in the fourth quarter of 2022, we continued to see growing demand through the first quarter of 2023, with our strongest Q1 revenue performance on record,” said Ryan Rhodes, Chief Executive Officer of EDAP. “We placed seven Focal One units, including six equipment sales and one operating lease. Based upon the positive feedback from urologists, particularly at this year’s recent EAU & AUA meetings, we expect momentum for the Focal One platform to continue throughout 2023, driven by our state-of-the-art technology, our positive clinical outcomes demonstrating excellent oncologic control, and our world-class sales and customer support team.”
“Beyond our commercial performance, we also announced positive results from two clinical studies utilizing Focal One, both conducted at leading academic urology centers. Results from these studies clearly demonstrate the safety, efficacy, and benefits of Focal One that support both continued growth and increased utilization of the technology. As Focal One continues to grow, we are also making commercial progress in other areas. We recently received approval of ExactVuTM micro-ultrasound in Japan, representing a significant regulatory milestone for EDAP that introduces this innovative platform to the world’s second largest medical device market. As we continue to invest in expanding both clinical and commercial activities to drive bottom line performance, we maintain a strong cash position to support both short and long-term growth.”
- Placed six Focal One machines in the U.S., including five equipment sales and one operating lease. One additional Focal One unit was sold outside of the U.S. in the first quarter of 2023. We observed continued strong momentum in securing new placements across both academic medical centers and community hospitals, as clinicians and providers increasingly recognize Focal One HIFU as an essential option for select patients diagnosed with prostate cancer.
- In January, the Company announced positive clinical results from the Endo-HIFU-R1 Phase 2 study evaluating the safety of therapeutic HIFU for the treatment of rectal endometriosis. Of the 60 patients evaluated, 96.7% demonstrated positive safety with no or non-significant adverse events (Clavien 1), 3.3% presented Clavien 2 complications and zero patients presented Clavien 3 complications. Positive effects were also observed in endometriosis symptom reduction and improvement of quality of life at one, three and six months. A significant reduction of the volume of lesions was also observed upon MRI evaluation at six months.
- In March, the Company announced positive results from the largest, multicenter, non-inferiority study ever conducted to prospectively evaluate HIFU against radical prostatectomy (RP) as a first line treatment for patients with localized prostate cancer (grade groups <3) at the 38th Annual Congress of the European Association of Urology (EAU). Results demonstrated salvage treatment free survival rate (STFS) at 30 months of 90.1% in the HIFU-treated arm versus 86.8% in patients who underwent RP. In addition, risk of salvage treatment was greater than 1.2-fold higher after RP. International Continence Society (ICS) scores as a measure of urinary incontinence were significantly lower after HIFU and IIEF-5 as a measure of erectile function decreased significantly less after HIFU than after RP, despite the HIFU-treated group being an average of 9.6 years older.
- In April, EDAP received approval from Japan’s Pharmaceutical and Medical Devices Agency (“PMDA”) for commercialization of ExactVu. ExactVu is a 29 MHz micro-ultrasound platform allowing urologists unparalleled visualization of prostate ultrasound images, detection of suspicious areas in real-time and biopsy results representing cancer aggressiveness. The Japanese market is the second largest global market for advanced medical device technology, with prostate cancer as the most common cancer diagnosis in Japanese men with over 100,000 new prostate cancer diagnoses annually.
- Also in April, the Company hosted a global webcast featuring a live broadcast of a Focal One procedure performed by Andre Abreu, MD and Amir H. Lebastchi, MD, Assistant Professors of Clinical Urology at Keck Medicine of the University of Southern California (USC), the first U.S. institution to acquire and adopt EDAP’s robotic HIFU technology.
- Several plenary presentations and instructional courses were delivered by leading academic urologists at the Annual Meeting of the American Urological Association (AUA), held April 28th to May 1st, showcasing the Focal One platform’s ability to meet accepted oncological standards for management of prostate cancer, while preserving sexual function and urinary control. Additionally, ExactVu was featured in the AUA Accredited Hands-on Ultrasound Skills Training Course under the guidance of expert faculty.
First Quarter 2023 Results
Total revenue for the first quarter 2023 was EUR 14.8 million (USD 15.9 million), an increase of 13.8% as compared to total revenue of EUR 13.0 million (USD 14.5 million) for the same period in 2022.
Total revenue in the HIFU business for the first quarter 2023 was EUR 5.3 million (USD 5.7 million), an increase of 39.5% as compared to EUR 3.8 million (USD 4.3 million) for the first quarter of 2022. The increase was driven by six Focal One units sold in the first quarter 2023 versus four units sold in the first quarter 2022.
Total revenue in the LITHO business for the first quarter 2023 was EUR 2.8 million (USD 3.0 million), as compared to EUR 2.2 million (USD 2.5 million) for the first quarter of 2022. The improvement was driven by four lithotripsy unit sold in the first quarter of 2023 as compared to one unit sold in the first quarter of 2022.
Total revenue in the Distribution business for the first quarter 2023 was EUR 6.8 million (USD 7.3 million), as compared to EUR 7.0 million (USD 7.8 million) for the first quarter of 2022. The decrease was driven primarily by eight ExactVu units sold during the first quarter of 2023 as compared to nine units sold during the first quarter of 2022.
Gross profit for the first quarter 2023 was EUR 6.0 million (USD 6.5 million), compared to EUR 5.8 million (USD 6.4 million) for the year-ago period. Gross profit margin on net sales was 40.8% in the first quarter of 2023, compared to 44.3% in the year-ago period. The decrease in gross profit rate year-over-year was primarily due to investments in service and applications in the U.S.
Operating expenses were EUR 12.6 million (USD 13.6 million) for the first quarter of 2023, compared to EUR 5.9 million (USD 6.6 million) for the same period in 2022. The significant increase in operating expenses is mainly due to the ongoing build-out of the U.S. team and commercial infrastructure, and non-recurring expenses linked to the leadership succession plan.
Operating loss for the first quarter of 2023 was EUR 6.6 million (USD 7.1 million), compared to an operating loss of EUR 0.1 million (USD 0.1 million) in the first quarter of 2022.
Net loss for the first quarter of 2023 was EUR 7.5 million (USD 8.1 million), or EUR 0.2 per diluted share, as compared to net income of EUR 0.4 million (USD 0.4 million), or EUR 0.01 per diluted share in the year-ago period.
As of March 31, 2023, the company held cash and cash equivalents of EUR 58.3 million (USD 63.4 million) as compared to EUR 63.1 million (USD 67.5 million) as of December 31, 2022.
A conference call and webcast to discuss first quarter 2023 financial results will be hosted by Ryan Rhodes, Chief Executive Officer, François Dietsch, Chief Financial Officer and Ken Mobeck, Chief Financial Officer of the U.S. subsidiary, today Wednesday, May 17th, 2023 at 8:30am EDT.

About the Endo-HIFU-R1 Phase 2 Study
The Endo-HIFU-R1 Phase 2 study was designed and conducted to evaluate the safety and efficacy of therapeutic high-Intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) for the treatment of rectal endometriosis with EDAP’s Focal One® Robotic HIFU device. At six-months follow up, of the 60 patients enrolled and treated with Focal One HIFU across four centers in France between August 2020 and March 2022, 96.7% demonstrated positive safety with no or non-significant adverse events (Clavien 1), 3.3% presented Clavien 2 complications and zero patients presented Clavien 3 complications. Additional endpoints included evaluation of the effect of HIFU treatment on endometriosis symptoms and Quality of Life (QoL). A significant decrease in endometriosis symptom level (acute pelvic pain, dyspareunia, diarrhea, constipation, rectal bleeding, false urges, tenesmus, rectal spams, posterior pelvic pain and asthenia) and an improvement in almost all evaluated QoL criteria (physical functioning, role limitation due to emotional problems, energy – fatigue, emotional well-being, social functioning, bodily pain, general health, and on physical and mental global score components) were observed at the first post-treatment evaluation at one month, and those benefits were maintained at three and six months following HIFU treatment. The study also blindly evaluated the evolution of nodule volume via MRI, with a significant reduction of the volume of lesions observed at six months. Results from the study were presented by study coordinator, Pr. Gil Dubernard of Croix Rousse University Hospital (Lyon, France) at the Paris Santé Femmes French Congress on Friday, January 27, 2023.
