IceCure Medical Announces Preliminary Unaudited 2021 Year-End Financial Results
Revenue increase driven by sales through distribution agreements for IceCure's groundbreaking minimally-invasive cryoablation tumor destruction technology.
Robust balance sheet supports global rollout of ProSense® System and the Company's pursuit of additional regulatory approvals in the U.S., Japan, and China
CAESAREA, Israel, Jan. 31, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- IceCure Medical Ltd. (NASDAQ: ICCM) (TASE: ICCM) ("IceCure" or the "Company"), developer of minimally-invasive cryoablation technology, the ProSense® System, that destroys tumors by freezing as an alternative to surgical tumor removal, today announced preliminary unaudited year-end financial results for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021.
Revenues increased to $4.1 million in 2021 compared to $3.9 million in 2020, primarily driven by sales through distribution agreements in Europe and sales of the Company's ProSense® system and probes in the United States.
As of December 31, 2021, the Company's cash and cash equivalents totaled $25.6 million compared to $3.5 million for the period ending December 31, 2020, as a result of the two equity raises in 2021 totaling $32 million.
"2021 was pivotal for IceCure, beginning with a private placement of $15 million early in the year, listing of our shares on the Nasdaq, followed by an additional $17 million offering at a greater enterprise value. We have expanded the global distribution network for ProSense® and increased our sales in the United States and Europe. Furthermore, our U.S. ICE3 trial demonstrated supportive data for our cryoablation technology in combating early-stage breast cancer which we reported at various academic meetings," stated Mr. Eyal Shamir, the Chief Executive Officer of IceCure.
"Notably, we remain focused on expansion on all fronts from both a commercial and product development standpoint, and we have also made important progress on the development of our next-generation cryoablation, single-probe, and multi-probe systems with a European patent-pending for our cryogenic pump which will potentially expand clinical applications with cryoablation for bigger tumors or multiple tumors simultaneously."
"In 2022, we intend to further advance our regulatory and commercial strategies in the United States, China, and Japan. We also plan to engage with new strategic commercial partners. One of our major focuses will be additional regulatory approvals in major countries for our business, namely, the United States and China. In the United States, we've already filed a pre-submission package with the Food and Drug Administration (the "FDA") for early-stage breast cancer and high risk to surgery and suggested a De Novo classification based on our ongoing ICE3 clinical trial. We hope that our Breakthrough Device Designation with the FDA will secure priority review," Mr. Shamir concluded.
IceCure plans to report full 2021 audited financial results upon filing its annual report on Form 20-F with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
The above information reflects preliminary estimates with respect to certain results of IceCure Medical for the full year ended December 31, 2021, based on currently available information. Because the audit for 2021 is not yet complete, IceCure's final results may vary from the preliminary estimates.
