ClearPoint Neuro, Inc.

Biologics & Drug Delivery growing +40%; Company Reaffirms 2023 Revenue Forecast

SOLANA BEACH, Calif., Aug. 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ClearPoint Neuro, Inc. (Nasdaq: CLPT) (the “Company”), a global therapy-enabling platform company providing navigation and delivery to the brain, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2023.

Second Quarter Highlights

  • Reported record quarterly revenue of $6.0 million, a 14% year-over-year increase;

  • Increased biologics and drug delivery revenue to $3.4 million, a 40% year-over-year increase;

  • Announced an example of a milestone-based biologics and drug delivery agreement whereby ClearPoint would earn cash compensation based on the successful progression of a drug candidate through the clinical and regulatory process;

  • Installed multiple new PRISM laser therapy units and continued the limited market release in the U.S.;

  • Completed construction on the manufacturing clean room at the Carlsbad, California facility;

  • Cash and cash equivalents totaled $26.5 million as of June 30, 2023.

Business Outlook

The Company reaffirms its full year 2023 revenue outlook of between $25.0 and $27.0 million.
“We are pleased with our result for the second quarter as we have returned to double-digit growth and delivered record revenue stemming primarily from the launch of new services in the biologics and drug delivery space which grew more than 40%,” commented Joe Burnett, President and CEO at ClearPoint Neuro. “As we look ahead to the second half of 2023, we expect to demonstrate progress toward our continued growth and scale by 1) accelerating revenue growth; 2) adding meaningful strategic and milestone-based biologics and drug delivery agreements; 3) expanding our PRISM limited market release to multiple new centers; 4) executing as many as five FDA submissions directly or through partnerships for new products; and 5) completing the qualification of our new manufacturing clean room facility in Carlsbad, California and producing sellable product. We believe these milestones will contribute to a reduction in operational cash burn compared to the first half of 2023 with continued revenue growth in biologics and drug delivery being the primary driver.”

Financial Results – Quarter Ended June 30, 2023

Total revenue was $6.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023, and $5.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022, which represents an increase of $0.8 million, or 14%.

Functional neurosurgery navigation and therapy revenue, remained relatively consistent at $2.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022.

Biologics and drug delivery revenue, which includes sales of disposable products and services related to customer-sponsored pre-clinical and clinical trials utilizing our products, increased 40% to $3.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023, from $2.4 million for the same period in 2022. This increase is attributable to a $1.8 million increase in service revenue, partially offset by $0.9 million decrease in product revenue.

Capital equipment and software revenue, consisting of sales of ClearPoint reusable hardware and software, and of related services, decreased 38% to $0.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023, from $0.6 million for the same period in 2022 as a result of fewer placements of ClearPoint capital and software.

Gross margin for the three months ended June 30, 2023, was 53%, as compared to a gross margin of 63% for the three months ended June 30, 2022. The decrease in gross margin was primarily due to an increase in biologics and drug delivery preclinical services, which, to date, have had a lower margin than product sales as we launch new services and increase our presence in this space. Increased costs related to the transition to the new manufacturing facility have also contributed to the decrease in gross margin.

Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2023 were $10.3 million, compared to $7.5 million for the second quarter of 2022. The increase was mainly driven by the increase in headcount across the organization and share-based compensation as well as an increase in product development costs.

At June 30, 2023, the Company had cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments totaling $26.5 million as compared to $37.5 million at December 31, 2022, with the decrease resulting primarily from the use of cash in operating activities of $10.8 million.
