    ISRG sold 88 NVDQ Firefly units in Q4

    farfignugen21. my thanks to you also for the good info.

    I have been holding ISRG for 7 years and started a much smaller position in NVDQ about 6 weeks ago (cost basis $8.90/share). My interest was triggered by what ISRG is doing with Firefly, and after studying NVDQ for a while I pulled the trigger on a starter position. So far I am more than encouraged by how the ISRG/NVDQ joint venture appears to be panning out. The recent Corporate Presentation on the NVDQ website is certainly encouraging as well. I believe the future looks bright for this company.

    As for the ISRG joint venture: while it's fair to say that the sales to ISRG are not "hugely profitable", they allow NVDQ to leverage the ever-growing ISRG sales/marketing organization. They are providing increasing volume to NVDQ manufacturing and so I surmise help to achieve economies of scale for NVDQ. Also, ISRG is bearing (or sharing?) the cost of conducting a clinical trial and filing the 510k with the FDA for the Biliary indication on Firefly, which can only help NVDQ. And as you said, Firefly's ever-increasing penetration of Robotic procedures provides invaluable exposure and credibility for the technology in all surgical platforms, which hopefully will provide a very profitable "multiplier effect".

    Cheers, and good luck to all NVDQ longs,
    gd
