LYON, France, Nov. 18, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EDAP TMS SA (Nasdaq:EDAP), the global leader in therapeutic ultrasound, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2015 and provided an update on recent strategic and operational highlights.

Marc Oczachowski, EDAP's Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Following the end of the third quarter, we achieved the most significant milestone in the Company's history with receipt of FDA clearance for Ablatherm HIFU. Bringing our HIFU technology to the U.S. market has been a key objective for several years, and this clearance is the result of the hard work and dedication of the entire EDAP team. We have already received Ablatherm Robotic HIFU orders from four U.S. urology Groups and academic centers, and numerous other inquiries regarding the product, which is indicative of the robust demand for HIFU among members of the U.S. urological community. We are initiating shipments of Ablatherm Robotic HIFU systems from our manufacturing facility in France this week, and we anticipate completing the installations very soon in key locations in the U.S.

"Our net sales for the first nine months of 2015 grew 3.3% over last year to a record €20.5 million on the strength of our lithotripsy business and procedure-driven HIFU revenues. Importantly, we have built a strong backlog which included 20 lithotripters and five HIFU devices as of the middle of the fourth quarter, giving us visibility into the end of the year and early 2016. Our business is clearly gaining momentum, and we believe that the FDA clearance of Ablatherm Robotic HIFU will provide a significant catalyst for future growth as we continue to ramp our commercial efforts in the U.S. We have established EDAP as the HIFU leader in Europe and other parts of the world, and I am confident that we can replicate that success in the United States."

About EDAP TMS SA

EDAP TMS SA markets today Ablatherm® for high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) for prostate tissue ablation in the U.S. and for treatment of localized prostate cancer in the rest of the world. HIFU treatment is shown to be a minimally invasive and effective option for prostatic tissue ablation with a low occurrence of side effects. Ablatherm-HIFU is generally recommended for patients with localized prostate cancer (stages T1-T2) who are not candidates for surgery or who prefer an alternative option, or for patients who failed radiotherapy treatment. Ablatherm-HIFU is approved for commercial distribution in Europe and some other countries including Mexico and Canada, and has received 510(k) clearance by the U.S. FDA. The Company also markets an innovative robot-assisted HIFU device, the Focal One®, dedicated to focal therapy of prostate cancer. Focal One® is CE marked but is not FDA approved. The Company also develops its HIFU technology for the potential treatment of certain other types of tumors.
