ConforMIS Reports Third Quarter 2016 Financial Results

BEDFORD, Mass., Nov. 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ConforMIS, Inc. (NASDAQ:CFMS), a medical technology company that uses its proprietary iFit Image-to-Implant technology platform to develop, manufacture and sell joint replacement implants that are customized to fit each patient's unique anatomy, announced today financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016.

Q3 Summary:
  • Total revenue of $18.6 million, up 34% year-over-year on a reported basis and up 35%  year-over-year on a constant currency basis.
  • Product revenue of $18.4 million, up 36% year-over-year on a reported basis and up 37% year-over-year on a constant currency basis
    • U.S. product revenue increased 43% year-over-year
    • Rest of World product revenue increased 14% year-over-year on a reported basis and 18% year-over-year on a constant currency basis

"We had a solid third quarter of 2016," said Philipp Lang, MD, MBA, President and Chief Executive Officer of ConforMIS, Inc.  "We saw double digit growth in our base business year-over-year with iTotal CR and our partial knee systems. The revenue growth for our newest product, iTotal PS, has been impressive. This innovative product approximately triples the addressable market for ConforMIS and is rapidly becoming our flagship product for new surgeon acquisition."

Dr. Lang continued, "We have completed enrollment in our single timepoint study comparing iTotal CR to leading off-the-shelf implants in over 800 patients. The results to-date show that patients that received an iTotal CR implant were significantly faster at completing three functional tests of daily living, including walking, than patients with an off-the-shelf implant. We believe that this and other direct comparative studies will help us increase the utilization of our implants with current and new surgeons."

Total revenue increased $4.7 million to $18.6 million, or 34% year-over-year on a reported basis and 35% year-over-year on a constant currency basis, as compared to the third quarter of 2015, which was affected by our product recall. Total revenue in the third quarter of 2016 included royalty revenue of $0.2 million as compared to $0.4 million in the third quarter of 2015.

Product revenue increased $4.9 million to $18.4 million, or 36% year-over-year on a reported basis and 37% year-over-year on a constant currency basis. U.S. product revenue increased $4.5 million to $15.0 million, or 43% year-over-year, and Rest of World product revenue increased $0.4 million to $3.4 million, or 14% year-over-year on a reported basis and 18% on a constant currency basis. Product revenue from sales of iTotal CR, iDuo and iUni increased $1.7 million to $14.4 million, or 13% year-over-year on a reported basis and 14% year-over-year on a constant currency basis. Product revenue from sales of iTotal PS increased $3.2 million to $4.0 million, or 401% year-over-year on a reported basis and 403% year-over-year on a constant currency basis.

Gross profit increased $3.2 million to $6.0 million, or 32% of revenue, which included $1.3 million in unused product, in the third quarter of 2016, compared to $2.8 million, or 20% of revenue, which included $0.8 million in unused product, in the third quarter of 2015. This increase in gross profit was driven primarily by higher product revenue in 2016 compared to 2015.

Total operating expenses decreased $0.1 million to $18.9 million, or 0.4% year-over-year. The decrease in expenses was driven primarily by lower sales and marketing costs and lower general and administrative costs, offset by slightly higher research and development costs compared to the third quarter of 2015.

Net loss was $12.8 million, or $0.31 per basic share, in the third quarter of 2016, compared to a net loss of $17.1 million, or $0.45 per basic share, for the same period last year. This decrease in net loss was driven primarily by higher product revenue in 2016 compared to 2015.

As of September 30, 2016, the Company's cash and cash equivalents and short and long-term investments totaled $75.8 million, compared to $117.2 million as of December 31, 2015.
