Mazor Robotics Announces Financial Results for the Third Quarter 2012 and Provides Update on Operating Progress

Mazor Robotics Ltd. (TASE: MZOR), a developer of innovative surgical robots and complementary products, today filed its financial statements with the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012. The company also provided an update on its progress in installing its Renaissance system in medical centers in the United States and outside the United States.


Revenue for the third quarter was $4.2 million/16.2 million NIS, a 171% increase from the year-ago period of $1.5 million/6.0 million NIS and a 45% sequential increase from revenue of $2.9 million/11.2 million NIS. The significant revenue increase was driven mainly by the strong demand and successful installations of Renaissance systems in the United States.

During the third quarter, recurring revenue accounted for 27% of the Company’s total revenue. Revenue from the U.S. comprised 80% of total revenue. The volume of Renaissance-guided spine surgery procedures, with a focus on complex spine and minimally-invasive surgery markets, continued to grow with average procedures per system, per quarter reaching 17.2, an increase of over 100% in 18 months.

Gross margin of 80% improved from 75% recorded in the second quarter 2012 and above the third quarter 2011 gross margin of 68%.

Operating expenses were $3.5 million/NIS 13.8 million compared to $2.8 million/NIS 10.9 million for the year-ago period.

Net loss for the quarter narrowed to $0.3 million/NIS 1.1 million, or $0.01/NIS 0.05 per share, compared to a net loss of $1.7 million/NIS 6.6 million, or $0.08/NIS 0.30 per share, reported for the third quarter 2011.

Cash, cash equivalents and short term investments for the quarter ended, September 30, 2012, was $21.2 million/ 82.9 million NIS, compared to $17.6 million/ 69.0 million NIS on June 30, 2012. The increase in cash and cash equivalents during the quarter was due to the investment of $7.5 million from a group of institutional and accredited investors, led by Oracle Investment Management.

“Our third quarter operating and financial results reflect the growing global demand for Renaissance systems and the excellent execution of our growth strategy, particularly in the important U.S. market,” said Ori Hadomi, CEO of Mazor Robotics. “In addition to reporting record revenue in the quarter, we took important steps to position Mazor for strong future growth. We continue to diligently build out our sales and marketing resources with the addition of several experienced sales executives, which will allow us to grow key markets in the United States. In addition we have significantly strengthened our financial position with the recent investment from Oracle Management. We will enter 2013 with strong momentum and are increasingly optimistic about our ability to provide a valuable service to hospitals and patients in need of our services.”


Mazor finalized the financing agreement that it had entered into during the third quarter, securing the first tranche of the investment of $7.5 million from a group of institutional and accredited investors, led by Oracle Investment Management, the investment management company founded by Larry Feinberg.

  • In the quarter, Mazor supplied Geisinger Health System, an integrated health services organization serving more than 2.6 million residents in Pennsylvania, with a Renaissance system
  • Parker Adventist Hospital, an affiliate of the Centura Health System, the largest hospital and healthcare network in Colorado, purchased a Renaissance system
  • Southwest NeuroSpine Institute, a specialty neurosurgery practice in El Paso, Texas, installed the Renaissance system it purchased in July, 2012
  • Mazor entered India with distribution partner Advanced Medical Systems PTE Ltd, and installed a system in Apollo Hospitals Chennai, the flagship hospital of the Apollo Group, one of the largest healthcare groups in Asia with over 8500 beds across 50 hospitals


For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, revenue totaled $9.4million/36.6 million NIS, a 156% increase over the $3.7 million/14.3 million NIS reported for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. Gross margin for the nine-month period was 77% compared with 66% for the prior year period. For the nine months to date, operating expenses were $9.7 million/37.8 million NIS compared with $8.1 million/31.6 million NIS in the year ago period. The net loss for the nine months was $2.7 million/10.0 million NIS compared with $5.8 million/22.6 million NIS for the comparable period of 2011.


Mazor prepares its financial statements in NIS. The U.S. dollar equivalents included have been converted using the quarter-end exchange rate of 3.912 and are presented for convenience purposes only.
