Third Quarter Financial Results

Revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2017 were $161,585, compared to $255,652 for the same period in 2016, a decrease of $94,067, or 37%. Revenues resulted primarily from sales in Europe, Asia and Asia/Pacific of our orthoPACE device and related applicators. The decrease in revenues for 2017 was due to lower sales of new orthoPACE devices and applicators in Europe and Asia/Pacific in 2017.

Research and development expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2017 were $266,837, compared to $266,473 for the same period in 2016, an increase of $364.

General and administrative expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2017 were $475,377, as compared to $645,863 for the same period in 2016, a decrease of $170,486, or 26%. The decrease in general and administrative expenses was due to lower legal fees, lower salary and benefits as a result of reduction in headcount and decrease in bad debt reserve.

Net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2017 was $851,325, or ($0.01) per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1,139,810, or ($0.01) per basic and diluted share, for the same period in 2016, a decrease in the net loss of $288,485, or 25%. The decrease in the net loss for 2017 was primarily due to lower general and administrative expenses and reduction in amortization costs.

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2017 Financial Results

Revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 were $422,199, compared to $728,382 for the same period in 2016, a decrease of $306,183, or 42%. Revenues resulted primarily from sales in Europe, Asia and Asia/Pacific of our orthoPACE device and related applicators. The decrease in revenues for 2017 was due to lower sales of new orthoPACE devices and applicators and lower applicator refurbishments in Europe and Asia/Pacific in 2017. 

Research and development expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 were $965,084, compared to $1,052,595 for the same period in 2016, a decrease of $87,511, or 8%. Research and development expenses decreased in 2017 as a result of lower payments to consultants related to the de novo petition submission to the FDA in July 2016.

General and administrative expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 were $1,875,891, as compared to $1,734,891 for the same period in 2016, an increase of $141,000, or 8%. The increase in general and administrative expenses was due to non-cash stock compensation expense for stock options issued in June 2017, increase in bad debt reserve and was partially offset by lower legal and investor relations fees.

Net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was $2,760,794, or ($0.02) per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $3,986,509, or ($0.04) per basic and diluted share, for the same period in 2016, a decrease in the net loss of $1,225,715, or 31%. The decrease in the net loss for 2017 was primarily due to a gain on the warrant valuation and lower operating expenses as noted above.
