Sponsored by Businesswire

Vascular Robotics
, Inc. (NYSE American: CVRS), a leading developer
of precision vascular robotics, today reported financial results for its
first quarter ended March 31, 2019.

Recent Financial Highlights and Business Accomplishments:

  • Revenue totaled $3.0 million during the first quarter of 2019,
    including sale and installation of nine CorPath GRX Systems;
  • Recorded purchase orders for 11 CorPath GRX Systems, an increase of
    83% compared to purchase orders received in Q4 2018 and 267% growth
    compared to the purchase orders received in Q1 2018;
  • Sold 602 single-use cassettes in the quarter, generating revenue of
    nearly $0.3 million;
  • Completed the first-ever clinical robotic-assisted percutaneous
    coronary intervention (PCI) procedures in Japan in partnership with
    Takafumi Ueno, MD, PhD, Director of Interventional Cardiology, Center
    of Cardiovascular Disease, Kurume University Hospital, marking initial
    enrollment in a post-market study of CorPath GRX;
  • Received CE mark for a neurovascular indication, allowing the Company
    to sell neurovascular robots in 33 countries that accept CE mark;
  • Received an order for the first CorPath GRX System in Italy;
  • Continued advancement of co-development and co-commercialization
    partnership discussions to advance the neurovascular robotic platform
    with remote capabilities; and
  • Raised approximately $19.8 million in gross proceeds in a private
    placement sale of unregistered Corindus shares to a large
    institutional investor and existing investors (Hudson Executive
    Capital and BioStar Ventures):

    • Per the terms of the transaction, Corindus was required to
      register the investor-owned shares on a Form S-3 Registration
      Statement, for which we plan to file the final prospectus tomorrow.
    • Although now registered for potential sale by the investors
      sometime in the future, the shares sold in this transaction
      continue to be subject to the six-month lockup period required in
      the private placement transaction.

“We are pleased with the positive trends in adoption and usage of our
robotic technology during the first quarter of 2019. The eleven purchase
orders for the CorPath GRX System received and a record number of
disposable cassettes in the quarter reflect our continued momentum.
Customers are also increasingly opting for service agreements,
reflecting their commitment to robotic procedures over the long-term,”
said Mark Toland, President and Chief Executive Officer.

“We continue to build out our global footprint with new installations in
Japan and Europe and believe the addition of CE mark for neurovascular
treatment will enable us to expand our opportunities in the European
markets. Ongoing demonstrations at multiple medical conferences continue
to drive demand, as physicians and hospital administrators increasingly
embrace the power of robotics today, with potential to overcome
geographic disparities through access to life-saving interventions
tomorrow. 2019 is shaping up to be an exciting year of growth for
Corindus,” concluded Toland.
