RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–TransEnterix, Inc. (NYSE American:TRXC), a medical device company that is digitizing the interface between the surgeon and the patient to improve minimally invasive surgery, today announced its operating and financial results for the second quarter 2018.

Recent Highlights

  • Total revenue of $6.4 million, including the sale of four Senhance Systems
  • Received FDA clearance for expanded indications for use for Senhance System
  • Filed FDA 510(k) submission for additional Senhance System Instruments including 3mm diameter instruments
  • Entered into financing agreement providing the company with up to $40 million in term loans

“Our performance during the second quarter was solid as we continued to drive system sales both in the U.S. and abroad, while simultaneously making significant progress towards our 2018 goals, including the expansion of Senhance’s indications for use and broadening our portfolio of instruments,” said Todd M. Pope, President and CEO at TransEnterix. “We look forward to leveraging the significant progress we made during the first half of the year to drive increased global adoption of our Senhance System.”

Commercial and Clinical Update

In the quarter ended June 30, 2018, the Company sold four Senhance Systems, with one sold in the U.S. and three sold in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) region.

On May 29, 2018, the Company received FDA 510(k) clearance for expanded indications of its Senhance System for laparoscopic inguinal hernia and laparoscopic cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal) surgery. There are approximately 760,000 inguinal hernia and 1.2 million laparoscopic cholecystectomy procedures performed annually in the U.S. With this clearance, Senhance System’s total addressable annual procedures in the U.S. has more than doubled to over three million.

On June 7, 2018, the Company announced that it had filed an FDA 510(k) submission for additional Senhance System instruments, including 3 millimeter diameter instruments.

Second Quarter Financial Highlights

For the three months ended June 30, 2018, the Company reported revenue of $6.4 million as compared to revenue of $1.6 million in the three months ended June 30, 2017. Revenue in the second quarter of 2018 included $4.7 million in system sales, $1.5 million in instruments and accessories, and $200 thousand in services.

For the three months ended June 30, 2018, total net operating expenses were $18.5 million, as compared to $13.1 million in the three months ended June 30, 2017.

For the three months ended June 30, 2018, net loss was $34.2 million, or $0.17 per share, as compared to a net loss of $14.7 million, or $0.11 per share, in the three months ended June 30, 2017.

For the three months ended June 30, 2018, adjusted net loss was $11.7 million, or $0.06 per share, as compared to an adjusted net loss of $11.2 million, or $0.08 per share in the three months ended June 30, 2017, after adjusting for expenses related to the sale of SurgiBot assets, loss on extinguishment of debt, and non-cash charges for amortization of intangible assets, change in fair value of contingent consideration, and change in fair value of warrant liabilities.

On May 23, 2018, the Company entered into a loan and security agreement providing the company with up to $40.0 million in term loans. The initial tranche of the term loan, $20 million, was received at closing. The Company will be eligible to draw on the second tranche of $10 million upon achievement of certain Senhance System revenue-related milestones for its 2018 fiscal year, and a third tranche of $10 million upon achievement of designated trailing six months GAAP net revenue from Senhance sales. On the date of closing, the Company repaid all amounts owed under their previous loan provider.

The Company had cash and restricted cash of approximately $98.5 million as of June 30, 2018. The Company now anticipates that it has sufficient cash to fund the business into 2020, exclusive of the $20 million in potential future debt tranches.

Non-GAAP Measures

The adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per share presented in this press release are non-GAAP measures. The adjustments relate to the gain from sale `of SurgiBot assets, amortization of intangible assets, change in fair value of contingent consideration, change in fair value of warrant liabilities, and loss on extinguishment of debt. These financial measures are presented on a basis other than in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“Non-GAAP Measures”). In the tables that follow under “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures,” we present adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per share, reconciled to their comparable GAAP measures. These items are adjusted because they are not operational or because these charges are non-cash or non-recurring and management believes these adjustments are meaningful to understanding the Company’s performance during the periods presented. These Non-GAAP Measures should be considered a supplement to, not a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

The non-GAAP financial measures for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 provide management with additional insight into its results of operations and are calculated using the following adjustments:

a) Gain from sale of SurgiBot assets relates to amounts received from Great Belief International Limited in excess of the carrying amount of the assets sold.

b) Intangible assets that are amortized consist of developed technology and purchased patent rights recorded at cost and amortized over 5 to 10 years.

c) Contingent consideration in connection with the acquisition of the Senhance System in 2015 is recorded as a liability and is the estimate of the fair value of potential milestone payments related to business acquisitions. Contingent consideration is measured at fair value using a discounted cash flow model utilizing significant unobservable inputs including the probability of achieving each of the potential milestones and an estimated discount rate associated with the risks of the expected cash flows attributable to the various milestones. Significant increases or decreases in any of the probabilities of success or changes in expected timelines for achievement of any of these milestones would result in a significantly higher or lower fair value of these milestones, respectively, and commensurate changes to the associated liability. The contingent consideration is revalued at each reporting period and changes in fair value are recognized in the consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss.

d) The Company’s Series A and Series B Warrants are measured at fair value using a simulation model which takes into account, as of the valuation date, factors including the current exercise price, the expected life of the warrant, the current price of the underlying stock, its expected volatility, holding cost and the risk-free interest rate for the term of the warrant. The warrant liability is revalued at each reporting period and changes in fair value are recognized in the consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss.

e) In May 2018 in connection with its entrance into the Hercules Loan Agreement, the Company repaid its existing loan and security agreement with Innovatus Life Sciences Lending Fund I, LP. The Company recognized a loss of $1.4 million on the extinguishment of notes payable which is included in interest expense on the consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018. In May 2017 in connection with its entrance into the Innovatus Loan Agreement, the Company repaid its then-existing credit facility with Silicon Valley Bank and Oxford Finance LLC. The Company recognized a loss of $308,000 on the extinguishment of notes payable which is included in interest expense on the consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017.
