March 01, 2023 | Last Trade: US$7.27 0.22 -2.94

SOLANA BEACH, Calif., March 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ClearPoint Neuro, Inc. (Nasdaq: CLPT) (the “Company”), a global therapy-enabling platform company providing navigation and delivery to the brain, today announced financial results for its fourth quarter and full-year ended December 31, 2022.

2022 Full Year and Fourth Quarter Highlights

  • Reported fourth quarter 2022 revenue of $5.2 million, a 21% year-over-year increase compared with the fourth quarter of 2021;
  • Reported revenue of $20.6 million for the full year 2022, an increase of 26% over 2021 and representing the eighth consecutive year of growth;
  • Increased biologics and drug delivery revenue to $9.1 million for the full year 2022, a 34% increase over 2021;
  • Added multiple new biologics and drug delivery partners in the quarter to bring the total to more than 50; and
  • Cash and short-term investments totaled $37.5 million as of December 31, 2022.

Business Outlook

“We are pleased with our performance in 2022, growing revenue 26% year-over-year, achieving FDA clearance for key new products, adding services and capabilities to support our more than 50 biologics partners, and executing against all four pillars of our growth strategy,” commented Joe Burnett, President and CEO at ClearPoint Neuro. “We continue to expect growth of more than 20% in 2023, given the competitiveness of our laser system and the cadence of our pharma partners’ continuing progress through the global regulatory process for new gene and cell therapies. We are reiterating our 2023 revenue forecast of between $25 and $27 million.”

Financial Results - Year Ended December 31, 2022

Total revenue was $20.6 million and $16.3 million for the years ended December 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

Functional neurosurgery navigation and therapy revenue increased to $9.1 million during the year ended December 31, 2022 from $8.1 million for the same period in 2021. This increase is primarily driven by $1.5 million of service revenue related to development services for the year ended December 31, 2022, compared to $0.4 million for the same period in 2021.

Biologics and drug delivery revenue, which include sales of disposable products and services related to customer-sponsored pre-clinical and clinical trials utilizing our products, increased 34% to $9.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2022, from $6.8 million for the same period in 2021. This increase is attributable to a $2.0 million increase in service and license revenue and $0.3 million increase in product revenue for the year ended December 31, 2022, due to expanded commitments from our current biologics and drug delivery partners as well as an increase in new partners.

Capital equipment and software revenue, consisting of sales of ClearPoint reusable hardware and software, and of related services, increased 61% to $2.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2022, from $1.4 million for the same period in 2021. This increase is due primarily to an increase in the placements of ClearPoint capital and software.

The Company achieved a gross margin of 66% on its sales for 2022, compared to a gross margin of 68% for 2021. This decrease in gross margin was due primarily to an increase in indirect labor costs in 2022 as compared to 2021 as well an increase in excess and obsolete inventory reserves.

Operating expenses were $29.9 million for the full year 2022, compared with $24.5 million for 2021. The increase was mainly driven by an increase in personnel-related expenses, including share-based compensation, as we increased headcount to fund the expansion of the research and development, clinical, and support organizations.

Financial Results – Quarter Ended December 31, 2022

Total revenue was $5.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2022, and $4.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021, which represents an increase of $0.9 million, or 21%.

Functional neurosurgery navigation and therapy revenue increased 7% to $2.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2022, from $2.1 million for the same period in 2021. The growth was driven by higher service revenue.

Biologics and drug delivery revenue, which includes sales of disposable products and services related to customer-sponsored pre-clinical and clinical trials utilizing our products, increased 37% to $2.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2022, from $1.7 million for the same period in 2021. This increase is attributable to a $0.7 million increase in service revenue, partially offset by a slight decrease in product revenue.

Capital equipment and software revenue, consisting of sales of ClearPoint reusable hardware and software, and of related services, increased 25% to $0.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2022, from $0.5 million for the same period in 2021 due to an increase in the placements of ClearPoint capital and software.

Gross margin for the three months ended December 31, 2022, was 64%, as compared to a gross margin of 77% for the three months ended December 31, 2021. The decrease in gross margin was due primarily to higher overhead expenses and inventory reserves.

Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2022 were $7.8 million, compared to $7.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2021. The increase was mainly driven by the increase in headcount across the organization and share-based compensation.

At December 31, 2022, the Company had cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments totaling $37.5 million compared to $54.1 million at December 31, 2021, with the decrease resulting primarily from the use of cash in operating activities of $16.2 million.
