Stereotaxis Reports 2024 First Quarter Financial Results


ST. LOUIS, May 13, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Stereotaxis (NYSE: STXS), a pioneer and global leader in surgical robotics for minimally invasive endovascular intervention, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024.


“Stereotaxis is driving continued commercial, technological, and strategic progress,” said David Fischel, Chairman and CEO. “We are pleased to report revenue growth in the first quarter and an increase in system backlog with two Genesis systems orders since our last call. Our innovation strategy remains key to driving substantial commercial success, and we are making robust progress on multiple fronts in line with previous timelines. The acquisition of APT, as detailed in a separate press release, provides us valuable commercial synergies and strengthens us strategically.”


“Regulatory submissions for the MAGiC catheter were made in both Europe and the United States during the first quarter. We appreciate the responsiveness and collaborative nature of both regulatory bodies, having had substantive interaction with both since the submissions. Formal testing of our smaller highly-accessible robot is advancing well, with the majority of tests successfully completed. Regulatory submissions for the robot are expected during the second quarter, and European regulatory clearance is anticipated mid-year followed by FDA clearance in the second half of the year. We also expect commercial launches later this year of a guidewire that expands our technology into new indications, a comprehensive product ecosystem in China, and a digital surgery solution enabling broad operating room connectivity.”


“We are continuing to advance our technology and strategy in a financially prudent fashion. We retain a strong balance sheet which allows us to bring our transformative product ecosystem to market, fund its commercialization, and reach profitability. We have multiple shots on goal for breakout growth in 2025 and beyond.”


2024 First Quarter Financial Results


Revenue for the first quarter of 2024 totaled $6.9 million, growth of 5% from $6.5 million in the prior year first quarter. System revenue for the first quarter was $2.6 million and recurring revenue was $4.3 million, compared to $1.8 million and $4.7 million in the prior year first quarter, respectively.


Gross margin for the first quarter of 2024 was 58% of revenue. Recurring revenue gross margin was 76% and system gross margin was 27%. Operating expenses in the first quarter of $8.7 million include $2.6 million in non-cash stock compensation expense. Excluding non-cash stock compensation expense, adjusted operating expenses in the quarter were $6.1 million, compared to $6.9 million for adjusted operating expenses in the prior year first quarter.


Operating loss and net loss for the first quarter of 2024 were ($4.7) million and ($4.5) million, respectively, compared to ($5.6) million and ($5.3) million in the previous year. Adjusted operating loss and adjusted net loss for the quarter, excluding non-cash stock compensation expense, were ($2.2) million and ($1.9) million, respectively, compared with ($3.0) million and ($2.7) million in the previous year. Negative free cash flow for the first quarter was ($2.3) million.




Cash Balance and Liquidity


At March 31, 2024, Stereotaxis had cash and cash equivalents, including restricted cash, of $18.2 million and no debt.


Forward Looking Expectations


Stereotaxis maintains its expectation of double-digit revenue growth for the full year 2024 driven by revenue recognition of system backlog and new system orders, and not incorporating contribution of revenue from APT.


First quarter cash utilization is typically higher than subsequent quarters. Stereotaxis anticipates a lower rate of cash utilization, even incorporating the expenses associated with acquiring, integrating and operating APT. Stereotaxis’ balance sheet allows it to advance its transformative product ecosystem to market, fund its commercialization, and reach profitability without the need for additional financing.
