    They say Medtronic's HUGO has a smaller footprint, costs less, and is more flexible in terms of the number of arms. Next week there should be more information after some user feedback becomes available.

    Because it’s a holiday weekend and EDAP is decoupling…let’s discuss buyout offers (for fun, but serious scenarios).

    While market cap sits uncomfortably low (~$300MM), my belief is that EDAP can command a 10x multiple (to share price) because:
    A) the company (and market) believes a $3B market cap is most definitely achievable over time
    B) Multiples would need to be that high in order for a Parisian company to actually sell
    C) While I believe EDAP can exceed $5B over the next ten years, investors are giving up LONG-term value for short-term (fair) liquidity

    My question to you all: what do you think about the above? Given the price point, is $ISRG the only suitor?

    GLTA — while this is for “fun”, there is no doubt a $90/share BO is a real discussion over the next 24 months.

    People talking about HUGO, don't have any idea about robotic surgery industry.. HUGO is in clinical development for 10 years and they are still in the same stage.. ISRG robots crossed multi million successful surgeries with extremely excellent results in two decades.. they are located in Sunnyvale, California bay area and working on AI and next generation machine learning with top engineers and scientists.. They are working towards pushing the limits of technology and releasing newer versions, while HUGO still working on clinical development.. It will many many years before they even get ready to collect enough data and apply for FDA.. please be realistic of FDA approval process and lengthy scrutiny before getting approval.. even after it may take decades for wider adoption.. before that happening ISRG will release many more advanced and affordable next gen robots and crush the remaining market share left..

    Edap under accumulation. High intensity focused ultrasound surgery is the future. Non invasive.

    When management reported the last quarter, they cited slowing in equipment sales. But this does not seem to be what other med-tech companies are saying. So, if slow equipment sales is only an ISRG challenge, that could indicate that Medtronic is freezing the market. Medtronic is selling outside the US and you can bet they are telling every customer not to buy a machine until they have trialed the HUGO. And in the US, they are surely pitching hospitals on the benefits for being involved in their trials.

    And for administrators, the pending release of Hugo gives them an excuse to wait.

    ISRG has competition now. These other players will inevitably slow growth. If only by slowing the sales cycle and possibly losing some placements.

    When are they going to hook these to the inter-webs and have the best surgeons sitting at home performing surgeries in other countries like kids playing 1st person shooter videos games?

    Japan is a huge market ... 2023 is going to be another banner year for ISRG in spite of a possible global recession. My local hospital has two of them and surgeons rave all over it. ISRG has revolutionized surgeries. They may not be the best hardware or have a large footprint but those dont matter as much as the triple S that ISRG has a monster lead against the wannabee - software, support and services.
