Recent Business Developments

RIO Systems – Fifteen RIO systems were sold during the fourth quarter, of which thirteen were sold to domestic customers and two were sold through international distributors to hospitals in Italy and Thailand. The revenue associated with the two RIO systems sold to and customer accepted by the international distributors will be deferred until all revenue recognition criteria are satisfied. A total of 45 new RIO systems were sold worldwide in 2012, bringing MAKO's worldwide commercial installed base of RIO systems to 156 systems and domestic commercial installed base of RIO systems to 151 systems as of December 31, 2012.

MAKOplasty Procedure Volume – During the fourth quarter, 2,904 MAKOplasty procedures were performed, of which 2,756 were performed at domestic sites and 395 were THA procedures. The 2,904 MAKOplasty procedures performed represent a 20% increase over the procedures performed in the third quarter of 2012 and a 29% increase over the procedures performed in the fourth quarter of 2011. The 395 THA procedures performed represent a 31% increase over the THA procedures performed in the third quarter of 2012. The average monthly utilization per system was 6.6 procedures during the fourth quarter of 2012, an increase from 6.2 procedures per system per month in the third quarter of 2012. A total of 10,204 MAKOplasty procedures were performed in 2012, representing a 47% increase over the total procedures performed in 2011. Through December 31, 2012, approximately 23,000 procedures have been performed since the first procedure in June 2006.

MAKOplasty Total Hip Arthroplasty Applications – In the fourth quarter, eleven MAKOplasty THA applications were sold, eight of which were sold with RIO systems sold during the quarter and three of which were sold as upgrades to existing customers with knee-only commercial systems. As of December 31, 2012, 96 RIO systems, or 62% of the worldwide commercial installed base, were MAKOplasty THA enabled.

Clinical Research and Marketing – During the fourth quarter, three papers were published related to accuracy of knee and hip MAKOplasty, bringing the total number of published peer-reviewed papers up to 31. The hip accuracy study published in the Journal of Engineering in Medicine* compared MAKOplasty THA with manual THA on six paired cadavers and showed that the MAKOplasty THA cups were 100% in the safe zone compared to 30% of the manually placed cups. In addition, MAKOplasty THA accuracy was shown in this study to be 4-6 times greater than manual accuracy in both inclination and anteversion.

Equity Investment – In November 2012, MAKO completed a public offering of our common stock, issuing 3,498,300 shares at a price per share of $13.15, resulting in net proceeds to MAKO of $42.9 million after underwriting commissions and expenses.

"We continued to make progress in the fourth quarter towards reestablishing our growth trajectory in RIO system placements and putting the building blocks in place to drive MAKOplasty procedure volume and utilization," said Maurice R. Ferré, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of MAKO. "While 2012 was a challenging year for MAKO, we believe that the sales process changes we initiated in the second half of the year will position MAKO well for improved performance in 2013 and ultimately assist us in achieving long term success."
