SpineGuard Reports Third-quarter 2021 Revenue

  • 9-months growth outside the US vs. last year 36%
  • Q3 consolidated revenue at € 1M

PARIS & BOULDER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:

SpineGuard (Paris:ALSGD) (FR0011464452 – ALSGD), an innovative company that deploys its DSG® (Dynamic Surgical Guidance) sensing technology to secure and streamline the placement of bone implants, announced today that its revenue was € 1.0 M in the third quarter and € 3.25 M YTD.

Pierre JEROME, Chairman, CEO and Co-founder of SpineGuard, said: “The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the spinal device market in the third quarter due to both the emergence of the Delta variant and healthcare labor shortage. Despite this new transitory tension on surgical activity, we have been delivering very encouraging growth overseas since the beginning of the year and the strengthening of our US commercial organization is well on the way with two additional strong hires in September. In the last few weeks, we participated in four international congresses including the NASS (North American Spine Society) annual meeting in Boston at the end of September. The new DSG Connect platform, which has cleared in Europe, the United States and most recently in Brazil, has generated considerable interest at each of these important events from surgeons, agents, and distributors who see real value added for surgeons training, clinical data collection and medico-legal recording. These congresses also offered a valuable opportunity to exchange face to face with potential strategic partners particularly on our latest major advances in robotics.”

Outside the USA, the revenue increased by 6% compared to the third quarter of 2020 while in the USA, the decrease was 31% due to surgery postponements related to both the emergence of the Delta variant and healthcare labor shortage consecutive to vaccine mandates at hospitals according to the analysts covering our space*.

2021 Perspectives

The cash position as of September 30, 2021 of € 5.9 M plus the secured equity line facility for € 5.0 M means that the total cash available to the Company is € 10.9 M. Considering the current cash position, the secured convertible bond facility and the recurring expected business, the Company estimates that it can fund its needs through 2023.

For 2021 SpineGuard focuses on the following priorities while striving to remain close to breakeven:

  1. Boost commercial activities with the launch of the DSG-Connect visual interface.
  2. Implement DSG technology in ortho-robotics through the deployment of AI algorithms, new scientific evidence, and additional patents.
  3. Intensify the collaboration with ConfiDent ABC for the dental application and co-develop a new generation of products embedding the DSG technology.
  4. Affirm the company’s technological shift and sign strategic partnerships, in particular for the use of DSG technology in the robotic field.
