CAESAREA, Israel, May 18, 2022 -- 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 (“ProSense”), today reported financial results as of and for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 and operational highlights.


Q1 2022 Operational and Financial Highlights


Revenues: Revenues for the first quarter of 2022 were approximately $0.75 million, 48% lower than approximately $1.4 million in the same period last year due to lower revenue recognition from its distribution agreements with Terumo for the commercialization of ProSense® to treat malignant breast tumors in Japan, Singapore, and Thailand as recorded in the first quarter of 2021, and due to lower sales in Asia impacted by COVID surges and associated restrictions on commercial activity, partially offset by higher sales in the U.S. The Company expects that quarter-over-quarter revenue may vary in the foreseeable future.


Increased Commercial Activity: With travel restrictions relaxing at the end of 2021, during Q1 2022 several ProSense® Systems were installed at new sites in the U.S. and around the globe including a ProSense® System that was donated to Tata Memorial Hospital in Mumbai by the Israeli General Consulate of Mumbai in collaboration with the Health Ministry of the Government of Maharashtra and the Israel Trade & Economic Mission to Mumbai. IceCure has scheduled and is now able to conduct more on-site support and training with partners and customers around the globe.


FDA Filing for Breast Cancer: Working toward U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for ProSense® in early-stage breast cancer, IceCure filed its pre-submission package with the FDA in November 2021 and continued to work on its full submission during Q1 2022. IceCure plans to suggest a De Novo classification, including a request for a sprint discussion under FDA procedures. The proposed intended use is for early-stage breast cancer patients at high risk from surgery.


R&D and Marketing: IceCure accelerated its next-generation single-probe system development and its clinical, regulatory, and commercial activities in the U.S. and globally. As of March 31, 2022, ProSense® has regulatory approvals and/or has a commercial presence in 20 countries.


SIO Conference: IceCure attended the Society of Interventional Oncology (SIO) 2022 Annual Scientific Meeting in San Francisco and hosted a symposium moderated by Dr. Jack Jennings on the value of liquid nitrogen based cryoablation systems for optimal tumor destruction.







Other Recent Highlights


ASBrS Conference: ICE3 Trial Selected as one of “Best Papers of 2021” for Annual Presentation from Thousands of Articles Published Annually – At the 23rd Annual Meeting of the American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBrS) in April, IceCure’s publication titled “Cryoablation without Excision for Low-Risk Early-Stage Breast cancer: 3-Year Analysis of ipsilateral Breast Tumor Recurrence in the ICE3 Trial” published in the Annals of Surgical Oncology was selected by past ASBrS president, Helen Pass, MD, Co-Director of the Stamford Health Breast Center, Chief of Breast Surgery at Stamford Hospital, and Clinical Professor of Surgery at Columbia University, for her annual presentation following a comprehensive literature review. Dr. Pass’ presentation was made before a large audience of breast surgeons and related medical professionals attending the conference in-person and online.


ECIO Conference: At the European Conference on Interventional Oncology (ECIO) in April, IceCure’s ICE3 breast cancer trial interim results, originally published on April 29, 2021, were presented by Dr. Kenneth R. Tomkovich, the study’s Co-Primary Investigator. Hands-on training sessions with the ProSense® System were provided by IceCure and physicians well-experienced with the system. IceCure also hosted a well-attended Symposium moderated by Professor Franco Orsi and other physicians, demonstrating their results and experience with the ProSense® System for various applications.


“With the reopening of global travel and healthcare systems’ return to relative normalcy throughout most of the world, during the first quarter of 2022 we significantly increased our activity, getting ProSense® in front of more doctors who can purchase and use it to improve patient outcomes,” stated IceCure CEO Eyal Shamir. “We were particularly pleased that our ICE3 clinical trial publication was chosen as one of the Best Papers of 2021 by the American Association of Breast Cancer Surgeons, a highly regarded and influential organization that sets the treatment guidelines for breast cancer in the U.S.”


Financial Results as of and for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2022


For the three months ended March 31, 2022, revenue decreased by 48% to approximately $0.75 million, compared to approximately $1.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The decrease is due to decreased revenue recognition of approximately $0.4 million from the distribution agreement with Terumo and a decrease in sales in Asia, partially offset by an increase in sales in the U.S.


Gross profit was approximately $0.43 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to approximately $0.94 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. Gross margin was approximately 58% for the three month period ended March 31, 2022, compared to approximately 65% for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The decrease in gross margin compared to the same period last year is mostly attributable to the decrease in revenue recognition from the Terumo distribution agreement.







Research and development expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2022 were approximately $2.4 million compared to approximately $1.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The increase is attributed to the acceleration in the development of IceCure’s next-generation single-probe system and clinical and regulatory activities.


Sales and marketing and general and administrative expenses, in the aggregate, for the three months ended March 31, 2022 were $2.5 million compared to approximately $1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The increase is attributed to the Company’s expanding commercialization efforts and to increased Nasdaq listing related expenses.


Total operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2022 were approximately $4.9 million compared to $2.1 million for the three months March 31, 2021. The increase in operating expenses is attributable to increased development, commercialization, and Nasdaq listing related activities.


As a result of lower revenue and increased operation activities, net loss reported for the three month period ended March 31, 2022 increased to approximately $4.4 million, or $0.12 per share, compared with a net loss of approximately $1.4 million, or $0.07 per share, for the same period last year.


As of March 31, 2022, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $22.4 million, compared with approximately $25.6 million as of December 31, 2021.
