Business Outlook and Planned Value Creating Milestones

  • The Company estimates revenue in 2023 to be between $25.0 million and $27.0 million, representing growth between 22% and 31%;
  • Submission to the FDA of a Biologics License Application (BLA) by PTC Therapeutics for Upstaza, using the ClearPoint SmartFlow® Cannula, for minimally invasive infusion of the gene therapy;
  • Initiation of multiple pharmaceutical partner clinical trials globally;
  • Expansion of the installed base to approximately 10 additional centers worldwide;
  • Revenue growth from international customers driven by 8 active centers installed in the E.U. and U.K.;
  • Commercialization of the ClearPoint PRISM Neuro Laser Therapy System and expansion into limited market release centers;
  • Completion of Phase 1 safety study in Lund, Sweden, for the use of PRISM to treat brain lesions;
  • Up to 8 FDA submissions for new hardware and software products in our portfolio;
  • Production of first devices at our new expanded manufacturing facility in California.

“Our team made tremendous progress toward our four-pillar growth strategy in 2022 and finished the year with approximately 26% growth in revenue, driven by the 34% revenue growth in our biologics and drug delivery business, and 11 new centers installed worldwide,” commented Joe Burnett, President and CEO of ClearPoint Neuro. “While recognized revenue in the fourth quarter was below our expectations based on timing and delivery for certain products and services, our backlog of received purchase orders grew to the highest level in our history setting us up for a strong 2023. We are forecasting revenue for 2023 in the range of $25.0 million to $27.0 million, representing growth of between 22% and 31% percent. Our team has done a great job managing our cash position in the past year by pausing less crucial programs while continuing to invest in our supply chain to ensure product availability to hospitals and our pharmaceutical partners. As a result, our cash burn in the fourth quarter was approximately $3.0 million, which was the lowest in several quarters, bringing our current cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments balance at year end to approximately $37.5 million.”

The preliminary unaudited financial results described in the press release are estimates only and subject to revision until we report our full financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2022 during our upcoming earnings announcement.
