EDAP TMS SA : EDAP Reports 2018 Third Quarter Results

  • Generated revenue growth of more than 14% as compared to the third quarter of 2017
  • Continued geographic expansion of Focal One with installations in Brazil and South Korea
  • Since receiving FDA clearance for Focal One in June 2018, progressed through the lengthy capital equipment sales cycle with U.S. hospitals and health centers, and expect to announce agreements in the near-term  
  • Announced expiration of tranche of outstanding warrants underlying 3.3 million common shares on the form of ADRs

LYON, France, November 14, 2018 -- EDAP TMS SA (Nasdaq: EDAP) ("the Company"), the global leader in therapeutic ultrasound, announced today financial results for the third quarter and nine-month period of 2018 and provided a strategic and operational update. Management will host a conference call on Thursday, November 15th at 8:30 ET

Marc Oczachowski, EDAP's Chief Executive Officer, said: "During the third quarter, we demonstrated solid sales momentum, reporting revenue growth of 14.2% over the third quarter of 2017, as we continued to execute on our strategy of expanding the global commercial footprint of Focal One. Notably, we announced the installation of our third Focal One device in Brazil and the first in South Korea. We believe this reflects the significant need of both urologists and their patients for a next-generation HIFU device that can provide minimally invasive but highly targeted ablation of prostate tissue while avoiding the significant side effects associated with more traditional treatments such as surgery."

"In parallel, since receiving FDA clearance for Focal One in June, our commercial team in the U.S. has been engaged in ongoing discussions with leading hospitals and health centers, and notwithstanding the usual lengthy sales cycle, we believe we are close to signing agreements in the near-term," Mr. Oczachowski continued. "When completed, this will represent a significant inflection point for our company, as a U.S. reference site using Focal One on a daily basis will be an invaluable tool to help drive future growth. We look forward to providing further updates on our progress."
