LYON, France, April 04, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EDAP TMS SA (Nasdaq:EDAP), the global leader in therapeutic ultrasound, announced today financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2015, and provided an update on recent strategic developments.

Marc Oczachowski, EDAP’s Chief Executive Officer, stated, “2015 was a pivotal year for EDAP with significant regulatory and financial achievements. Foremost was the decision by the FDA to clear our Ablatherm® Robotic HIFU for prostate tissue ablation, enabling us to sell the device in the U.S. market. We are currently expanding our US operations to grow Ablatherm unit sales and initiating direct marketing programs targeting urologists and patients. Our team is totally focused on reinforcing the Company’s foundation for future growth.”

“We are delighted by our 2015 global revenue performance and its 20% growth over 2014. This resulted from a 41% increase in treatment-driven revenues from the HIFU division reflecting increased global acceptance of our technology to ablate prostate tissue non-invasively. In the fourth quarter of 2015, we tripled our HIFU sales as compared to fourth quarter of 2014, which included the sale of two Ablatherm units in the U.S. after receiving the FDA clearance in November. In the UDS/lithotripsy division, we are thrilled to report growth of 32% year-over-year in 12-month revenues, and a highly successful fourth quarter, in which revenues grew 55% vs Q4 2014, exhibiting EDAP’s ability to expand its market share in a very competitive field.”

Mr. Oczachowski added, “In addition to delivering record revenues and our full-year operating profit, we are establishing a strong pipeline of HIFU projects in the U.S. and the rest of the world as we build upon the momentum that began with November’s FDA clearance of Ablatherm.

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. EDAP TMS SA also produces and distributes medical equipment (the Sonolith® lithotripters' range) for the treatment of urinary tract stones using extra-corporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL) in most countries including Canada and the U.S. For more information on the Company, please visit http://www.edap-tms.com, and http://www.hifu-planet.com.
