EDAP-TMS Reports Record Second Quarter and First Half 2017 Results

LYON, France, August 23, 2017 -- EDAP TMS SA (Nasdaq: EDAP), the global leader in therapeutic ultrasound, announced today financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017, and provided an update on strategic and operational accomplishments.

"We are incredibly pleased to announce record second quarter revenue of 9.3 million", said Marc Oczachowski, EDAP's Chief Executive Officer. "Additionally, the 25% growth in HIFU revenues compared to the first quarter of 2017 shows a significant return from our increased sales and marketing efforts. We also submitted our 510(k) filing to the FDA for our novel Ablatherm Fusion device recently, and are working to file a new 510(k) application with the FDA for the Focal One device in the U.S. The addition of these HIFU devices to our U.S. marketing efforts, coupled with the active C-Code, should serve to help our customers service the widest possible range of patients."

Second Quarter 2017 Results

Total revenue for the second quarter 2017 was EUR 9.3 million (USD 10.4 million), compared to EUR 8.2 million (USD 9.2 million) for the second quarter of 2016, a 13.7% increase and the highest second quarter revenue in EDAP's history.

For the three months ended June 30, 2017, total revenue for the Lithotripsy division was EUR 6.4 million (USD 7.2 million), a 33.9% increase compared to EUR 4.8 million (USD 5.4 million) during the year-ago period.

During the second quarter of 2017, EDAP sold 1 Focal One and 2 Ablatherm HIFU devices compared to 1 Focal One and 3 Ablatherm devices during the second quarter of 2016.

Gross profit for the second quarter 2017 was EUR 4.0 million (USD 4.5 million), compared to EUR 3.5 million (USD 3.9 million) for the year-ago period. Gross profit margin on net sales expanded to 43.2% in the second quarter of 2017, compared to 42.2% in the prior year period, primarily due to increase in revenues.

Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2017 totaled EUR 4.4 million (USD 5.0 million) for the second quarter of 2017, compared to EUR 3.8 million (USD 4.3 million) for the same period in 2016. The increase reflects increased sales and marketing efforts associated with the expansion of the HIFU and UDS businesses.

First Six Months 2017 Results

Total revenue for the first half of 2017 was EUR 18.0 million (USD 19.7 million) - a new record level for the period, up 6.3% compared to EUR 16.9 million (USD 18.8 million) for the first half of 2016. For the six months ended June 30, 2017, total revenue for the Lithotripsy division was EUR 12.8 million (USD 14.0 million), an increase of 24.6% when compared to EUR 10.2 million (USD 11.4 million), during the year ago period. This increase was driven by growth in both the distribution business and lithotripsy device sales.

Total revenue in the HIFU division for the first six months 2017 was EUR 5.2 million (USD 5.7 million) compared to EUR 6.7 million (USD 7.4 million) for the six months ended June 30, 2016. This decrease was primarily due to slow U.S. sales of HIFU devices during the first half of the year, tempered by an increase in HIFU treatment driven revenues.

Gross profit for the first half of 2017 was EUR 7.6 million (USD 8.3 million) and gross profit margin was 42.1%, compared to 45.8% in the year ago period. The contraction in gross profit margin was primarily due to an unfavorable mix of HIFU and UDS segment revenues.

At June 30, 2017, cash and cash equivalents, including short-term treasury investments, were EUR 18.6 million (USD 21.2 million).

About EDAP TMS SA

EDAP TMS SA markets today Ablatherm for high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) for prostate tissue ablation in the U.S. and for treatment of localized prostate cancer in the rest of the world. HIFU treatment is shown to be a minimally invasive and effective option for prostatic tissue ablation with a low occurrence of side effects. Ablatherm-HIFU is generally recommended for patients with localized prostate cancer (stages T1-T2) who are not candidates for surgery or who prefer an alternative option, or for patients who failed radiotherapy treatment. Ablatherm-HIFU is approved for commercial distribution in Europe and some other countries including Mexico and Canada, and has received 510(k) clearance by the U.S. FDA. Ablatherm Fusion is not FDA cleared yet. The Company also markets an innovative robot-assisted HIFU device, the Focal One, dedicated to focal therapy of prostate cancer. Focal One is CE marked but is not FDA approved. The Company also develops its HIFU technology for the potential treatment of certain other types of tumors. EDAP TMS SA also produces and distributes medical equipment (the Sonolith lithotripters' range) for the treatment of urinary tract stones using extra-corporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL) in most countries including Canada and the U.S. For more information on the Company, please visit http://www.edap-tms.com, andhttp://www.hifu-planet.com.
