Stereotaxis Reports First Quarter 2011 Financial Results

ST. LOUIS, May 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Stereotaxis, Inc. (NASDAQ: STXS) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011.  First quarter results included continued strong momentum in new capital orders and revenue for the Company's Odyssey™ systems and growth in recurring revenue.  In addition, the Company announced that its new Stereotaxis Epoch™ platform, which enhances the efficiency and versatility of the Niobe system, will be unveiled at the Heart Rhythm Society's (HRS) 32nd Annual Scientific Sessions in San Francisco during May 5-7, 2011.

Revenue for the first quarter 2011 totaled $10.2 million, compared to $10.6 million in the first quarter 2010.  The Company recognized revenue of $1.4 million in Niobe® robotic systems.   As the Company previously announced, installation delays due to production constraints with one of its imaging partners impacted revenue growth during the first quarter 2011.  Odyssey systems revenue in the first quarter totaled $2.7 million, compared to $0.8 million in the first quarter 2010.  Disposables, services and accessories revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 was $5.9 million, up 10.3% from the year-ago quarter.

"The continued strong momentum for Odyssey in the first quarter reflects the growing market demand from both standard and robotic electrophysiology (EP) labs for this unique data integration and clinical networking platform," said Michael P. Kaminski, President and Chief Executive Officer of Stereotaxis.  "We remain focused on establishing our Niobe robotic platform as a new standard of care for EP interventional medicine, and will introduce at the upcoming HRS annual meeting our Stereotaxis Epoch solutions system that we believe dramatically enhances efficiency and versatility of robotic interventional procedures while offering improved safety and efficacy over manual treatments.  In addition, we continue to expect resolution of our imaging partner's supply issue that impacted first quarter installations will be completed in the second quarter 2011."

The Company generated global new capital orders in the first quarter 2011 of $7.1 million, compared to $7.2 million in capital orders placed during the first quarter 2010.  Global orders for the Niobe robotic system in the first quarter 2011 totaled $4.6 million, compared to $5.7 million in Niobe orders reported in the year ago quarter.  Odyssey system orders in the first quarter 2011 were $2.5 million, up 66.7% from the $1.5 million in Odyssey orders in the year ago quarter.  New capital orders from North America were $3.3 million, or 47% of total orders in the first quarter of 2011.  

Product Advancements to be Featured at Heart Rhythm Society's 32nd Annual Scientific SessionsStereotaxis announced that its new Stereotaxis Epoch™ platform, which enhances the efficiency and versatility of the Niobe system, will be unveiled at the Heart Rhythm Society's (HRS) 32nd Annual Scientific Sessions in San Francisco during May 5-7, 2011.  The Stereotaxis Epoch solution is designed to meet the broad range of clinical needs physicians face today and in the future.  Building on the strength of Magnetic Navigation's exceptional safety profile and significant radiation reduction, the Epoch platform features the latest technological breakthroughs in Magnetic Navigation, which will lead to faster, more efficient, and dynamic magnetic catheter control.

"We remain focused on developing solutions that meet the most critical needs of our customers, while supporting any preferred clinical treatment technique.  Epoch is designed to significantly reduce procedure time for all types of robotic-assisted EP procedures, especially for complex ablation procedures.  We believe the Epoch platform will enable a much more efficient and enhanced EP workflow while maintaining our excellent profile in safety, radiation reduction and clinical outcomes," stated Mr. Kaminski.

First Quarter 2011 Financial PerformanceGross margin for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011 was $7.2 million, or 70.6% of net sales.  Gross margin for the year ago quarter was $7.7 million, or 72.5% of net sales.  Operating expenses for first quarter 2011 totaled $16.0 million.  Cash burn for the first quarter of 2011 was $11.0 million.

The operating loss for the first quarter 2011 was $(8.8) million, compared to an operating loss of $(6.3) million for the first quarter 2010.  The net loss for the first quarter 2011 was $(9.5) million, or $(0.17) per share, compared to a net loss of $(8.4) million, or $(0.17) per share, reported for the first quarter 2010.  The weighted average shares for the first quarter of 2011 totaled 54.7 million compared with 49.6 million in the first quarter of 2010.  The increase was due in large part to the issuance of 4.6 million shares as part of the stock offering completed in November 2010.

    About Stereotaxis   www.odysseyexperience.comStereotaxis designs, manufactures and markets an advanced cardiology instrument control system for use in a hospital's interventional surgical suite to enhance the treatment of coronary artery disease and arrhythmias. The Niobe® Remote Magnetic Navigation System is designed to enable physicians to complete more complex interventional procedures by providing image guided delivery of catheters and guidewires through the blood vessels and chambers of the heart to treatment sites. This is achieved using computer-controlled, externally applied magnetic fields that govern the motion of the working tip of the catheter or guidewire, resulting in improved navigation, shorter procedure time and reduced x-ray exposure.

    Stereotaxis' Odyssey™ portfolio of products provides an innovative enterprise solution for integrating, recording and networking interventional lab information within hospitals and around the world. Odyssey™ Vision integrates data for magnetic and standard interventional labs, enhancing the physician workflow through a consolidated display of multiple systems and eliminating the challenge of interacting simultaneously with many separate diagnostic systems. Odyssey™ Enterprise Cinema then captures a complete record of synchronized procedure data that can be viewed live or from a comprehensive archive of cases performed.  Odyssey™ then enables hospitals to efficiently share live and recorded clinical data anywhere around the world to maximize referrals and promote collaboration.
