SOLANA BEACH, Calif., Feb. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ClearPoint Neuro, Inc. (Nasdaq: CLPT) (the “Company”), a global therapy-enabling platform company providing navigation and delivery to the brain, today announced preliminary, unaudited financial results for its fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2021. The Company also announced that its earnings call will take place on Tuesday, March 1, 2022, after the market close.

Fourth Quarter 2021 Revenue Highlights

  • Reported revenue of $4.3 million, a 15% year-over-year increase;
  • Increased functional neurosurgery products and services to $2.1 million, a 37% year-over-year increase;
  • Increased biologics and drug delivery revenue to $1.7 million, a 10% year-over-year increase;
  • Clinical team supported 239 cases despite a regional impact of the Omicron variant on elective procedures, a 37% year-over-year increase.

Full Year 2021 Revenue Highlights

  • Achieved record revenue of $16.3 million, a 27% year-over-year increase and within the initial 2021 forecast of $16.0 - $17.5 million despite the impact of both Delta and Omicron variants throughout the year on elective procedures and supply chain;
  • Achieved record case volume of 929 cases, a 36% year-over-year increase and within initial 2021 forecast of 900 – 1,000 cases supported by our clinical specialist team;
  • The Company had approximately $54.1 million in cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2021.

Business Outlook

  • The Company estimates revenue in 2022 to be between $20.0 and $22.0 million, representing growth between 23% and 35%;
  • The single largest risk factor for 2022 revenue is expected to remain the impact of COVID, including the resumption of elective procedures post-Omicron and the risk of new emerging variants as seen in 2021.

“As we close the books on 2021, we reflect on a tremendous year for the Company as we have continued to execute and make progress across our four-pillar growth strategy,” commented Joe Burnett, President and CEO of ClearPoint Neuro. “Overall, we achieved record revenue and case volume across all of our segments including functional neurosurgery, biologics and drug delivery and capital and service. We also met our initial guidance for both revenue and case volume despite multiple disruptions to elective procedures caused by the Delta and Omicron variants.”

“We continue to manage the business appropriately during these uncertain times caused by the pandemic and will use our existing capital to balance growth with thoughtful spending. Our current cash position entering 2022 is $54.1 million and we do not at present feel the need for additional capital at any time in 2022. We have a unique product offering at a special time and will continue to invest and innovate in the neurosurgical space. If you add up all the different patient indications where we plan to participate using our platform supporting Biologics, Deep Brain Stimulation, Brain-Computer-Interfaces, and laser ablation, the total amounts to 35 different patient populations. In the United States alone, this represents approximately one million new patients diagnosed each year across these various indications who could one day benefit from treatments utilizing the ClearPoint platform.”
