CARLSBAD, Calif., April 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Acutus Medical, Inc. (“Acutus” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: AFIB), an arrhythmia management company focused on improving the way cardiac arrhythmias are diagnosed and treated, today announced preliminary unaudited results for the first quarter 2023 in addition to the release of the RECOVER AF study data (published online in EP Europace)1.
Preliminary Unaudited First Quarter 2023 Results
The Company expects first quarter 2023 revenue in the range of $4.1-$4.2 million compared to $3.7 million in the first quarter of 2022. Year-over-year growth was driven by higher AcQMap™ disposable revenue in markets outside the United States, increased Service and Other Revenue, and sales through the Company’s distribution agreement with Medtronic. As expected, the Company’s results for the first quarter of 2023 were adversely impacted by supply chain shortages that are expected to be resolved in the balance of the year. Excluding the cash proceeds from Sale of Business and ERC Credit, cash burn is expected to decline on a year-over-year basis by approximately 35%, reflecting ongoing cost savings, partially offset by inventory replenishment to support current and future expected demand.
“We are pleased with the overall performance of our business in the first quarter, despite ongoing supply chain challenges and a constrained hospital capex spending environment. While we had a slow start in terms of AcQMap cases, we saw a progressive increase in procedure volume by quarter end,” said David Roman, President & CEO of Acutus. “The recently published RECOVER AF study data demonstrate the profound impact we have on patient care, and we believe AcQMap’s proven capability to personalize ablation therapy and improve outcomes sets the business up for growth in 2023 and beyond.”
The preliminary unaudited revenue results described in this press release are estimates only and are subject to revision until we report our full financial results for the first quarter of 2023 on Thursday, May 11, 2023.
