LYON, France, Aug. 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EDAP TMS SA (Nasdaq:EDAP), the global leader in therapeutic ultrasound, announced today financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014 and provided an update on recent strategic developments.

Marc Oczachowski, EDAP's Chief Executive Officer, stated, "During the second quarter, we continued to see solid revenue growth worldwide, mainly driven by increasing demand for our HIFU devices in Europe and the rest of the world. This clearly demonstrates a growing adoption and recognition of HIFU in treating prostate cancer and EDAP's ability to answer both urologist and patient needs with our unique full range of HIFU products, including Ablatherm-HIFU and Focal One."

Mr. Oczachowski continued, "As we enter the second half of the year, we are well positioned with a solid backlog of 10 lithotripters and two Focal One HIFU devices. In addition to the encouraging trends we are seeing for our products worldwide, the Company has a strong cash position of $17.5 million which provides us with financial flexibility to capitalize on opportunities in the global urology market. In parallel, we remain focused on further penetrating the US market with our approved range of lithotripsy devices. Finally, we maintain continuous dialogue with the FDA on the approval process of our Ablatherm-HIFU treatment for prostate cancer."
