Medicrea Reports Third-Quarter Results

November 15, 2018

LYON, France & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 15, 2018--The Medicrea Group (Euronext Growth Paris: FR0004178572-ALMED ; OTCQX Best Market – MRNTY & MRNTF), pioneering the transformation of spinal surgery through artificial Intelligence, predictive modeling and patient specific implants with its UNiD™ ASI (Adaptive Spine Intelligence) proprietary software platform, services and technologies, has today published its unaudited results for the third quarter of 2018.

Sales amounted to € 7.3 million for the third quarter of 2018, up 14% compared to the third quarter last year. Medicrea has delivered sustainable growth since the beginning of the year, driven by the acceleration of UNiD™ surgeries in the United States of over 90% in the third quarter of 2018.

Third-quarter gross margin improved by 5 percentage points to 73% as a result of better productivity, the reduced use of subcontracting, and a favorable sales mix related to the increase in US revenues.

The reduction in commercial and administrative expenses over the quarter, combined with the increase in the gross margin, enabled the Group to post positive operating income before amortization and provisions (EBITDA), and also led to a sharp reduction in current operating losses compared to previous quarters. Following this trend, the net loss of the third quarter decreased more than 45% compared to the previous quarter.

« Our financial performance for the third quarter of 2018 marks a significant turning point compared to previous periods and the improvement in results should continue over the coming months. The gross margin should gradually return to levels above 75% and we anticipate that EBITDA will remain positive. Given current operating trends, we are targeting EBIT break-even in Q3 2019. » commented Denys Sournac, President and CEO of Medicrea.

Next publication: 2018 Annual Sales on January 15, 2019 after market.
