LYON, France, July 25, 2019 - EDAP TMS SA (Nasdaq: EDAP), the global leader in therapeutic ultrasound, today announced preliminary unaudited revenues for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019.

Preliminary total revenue for the second quarter 2019 totaled EUR 12.5 million, a 45% year-over-year increase. Growth in total revenue includes strong 98% growth in HIFU sales, which totaled EUR 4.6 million for the second quarter.

Year-to-date through June 30, 2019, the Company reported 27% growth in total revenue over the comparable period in 2018, driven primarily by a strong 78% increase in HIFU sales.

We reported 98% growth in HIFU sales for the second quarter 2019 compared to second quarter 2018, driven by the sale of five HIFU devices, including three in the U.S. Our revenue performance was also driven by strong growth in HIFU treatment revenue, which increased 51% in the quarter. We look forward to reporting our full second quarter financial and operating results during our earnings call on Thursday, August 29.”
