CAESAREA, Israel--()--Mazor Robotics Ltd. (TASE: MZOR; NASDAQGM: MZOR), a pioneer and a leader in the field of surgical guidance systems, reported record first quarter revenue of $11.7 million. As previously announced, the Company received purchase orders for six systems in the 2017 first quarter and ended the quarter with a backlog of 14 systems.

“Our first quarter of 2017 was highlighted by record first quarter revenue and expanded utilization of our Renaissance system installed base”

“Our first quarter of 2017 was highlighted by record first quarter revenue and expanded utilization of our Renaissance system installed base,” commented Ori Hadomi, Chief Executive Officer. “Our revenue growth was driven by two factors. First, we supplied 12 Mazor X systems as we continued to process our 2016 year-end backlog. Second, we had record utilization by our installed base during the quarter. The enthusiasm for the Mazor X continues, and to date we have received four purchase orders for the Mazor X in the second quarter of 2017.”

FIRST QUARTER 2017 FINANCIAL RESULTS ON IFRS BASIS ("GAAP")

Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2017 increased 83% to $11.7 million compared to $6.4 million in the year-ago first quarter. U.S. revenue increased 100% to $11.2 million compared to $5.6 million in the year-ago first quarter, as the Company recognized revenue from 12 Mazor X systems, compared to four Renaissance systems in the 2016 first quarter. The Company ended the quarter with a backlog of 14 Mazor X systems; revenue from these systems is expected to be recorded in 2017. International revenue was $0.5 million compared to $0.8 million in the year-ago first quarter. Recurring revenue from kit sales, services and others increased 37% to $5.2 million in the first quarter of 2017, compared to $3.8 million in the year-ago first quarter. The growth is attributed mainly to the increase of the installed base.

The Company’s gross margin for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was 64.6% compared to 74.2% in the year-ago first quarter. This expected decrease is attributed mainly to discounted pricing to the Company’s Mazor X distribution partner, the higher manufacturing costs of the Mazor X compared to the Renaissance system, and the inclusion of two Renaissance trade-ins to Mazor X. Total operating expenses were $13.3 million compared to $10.0 million in the year-ago first quarter primarily reflecting the Company’s increased investments in sales and marketing activities. Operating loss was $5.7 million compared to an operating loss of $5.2 million in the year-ago first quarter. Net loss for the first quarter of 2017 was $5.2 million, or $0.11 per share, compared to a net loss of $5.1 million, or $0.12 per share, for the year-ago first quarter.

Cash generated by operating activities during the first quarter was $0.7 million compared to $2.9 million cash used in operating activities in the year-ago first quarter. As of March 31, 2017, cash, cash equivalents and investments totaled $63.9 million.

FIRST QUARTER 2017 FINANCIAL RESULTS ON NON-GAAP BASIS

The tables below include reconciliation of the Company’s GAAP results to non-GAAP results. The reconciliation relates to non-cash expenses in the amount of $1.3 million with respect to amortization of intangible assets and to share-based expenses recorded in the first quarter of 2017. On a non-GAAP basis, the net loss in the first quarter of 2017 was $3.9 million, or $0.08 per share, compared to $4.2 million, or $0.10 per share, for the year-ago first quarter.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

In addition to disclosing financial results calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in conformity with International Financial Reporting Standards (GAAP), this press release contains Non-GAAP financial measures for gross profit, operating expenses, operating loss, net loss and basic and diluted earnings per share that exclude the effects of non-cash expense of amortization of intangible assets and share-based expenses. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company’s performance that enhances management's and investors' ability to evaluate the Company's net income and earnings per share and to compare them to historical net income and earnings per share.

The presentation of this non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. Management uses both GAAP and non-GAAP measures when operating and evaluating the Company’s business internally and therefore decided to make these non-GAAP adjustments available to investors.
