Stereotaxis Reports First Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Operating loss in the first quarter was $(3.6) million, a 14% reduction compared to $(4.2) million in the prior year quarter. Interest expense increased $0.5 million from the prior year quarter, primarily due to the non-cash amortization of the convertible debt discount.

The net loss for the first quarter was $(4.9) million, or $(0.61) per share, compared to a net loss of $(5.8) million, or $(1.06) per share, reported for the first quarter 2012. The weighted average shares outstanding for the first quarters of 2013 and 2012 totaled 8.0 million and 5.5 million, respectively. Excluding mark-to-market warrant revaluation and amortization of convertible debt discount related to the $18.5 million financing in May 2012, the net loss would have been $(5.0) million, or $(0.63) per share.  

Cash burn for the first quarter of 2013 was $1.1 million, compared to $4.3 million for the first quarter of 2012.

At March 31, 2013, Stereotaxis had cash and cash equivalents of $9.6 million, compared to $7.8 million at December 31, 2012. At quarter end, total debt was $32.5 million, including $18.6 million related to HealthCare Royalty Partners debt. On March 29, 2013, the Company secured an extension of its revolving line of credit with Silicon Valley Bank through June 30, 2013.

Strategic and Financing Alternatives

The Company continues to explore strategic and financing alternatives through discussions with multiple entities and hopes to report more on these activities in the near future. 

Clinical Update

The Company has completed 45% of patient enrollment for the clinical trial of the Vdrive V-Loop™ circular catheter manipulator. The study is a critical step in obtaining clearance of the V-Loop device by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In response to additional FDA requirements for clearance of the V-Sono™ ICE catheter manipulator, the Company completed an enhanced pre-clinical trial and submitted its findings on May 6. Final FDA 510(k) review is underway. Additionally, the Company is launching its first-ever prospective, multi-center atrial fibrillation study in European sites during 2013 and has selected four sites for the study.

2013 Objectives

Stereotaxis does not provide revenue and earnings per share guidance, but provides the following goals for the full year 2013: 

  • Expand global footprint through Japanese approval of Niobe technology
  • Manage operating expenses at current level
  • Strengthen balance sheet through strategic and financing alternatives
