  • 37% growth in HIFU treatment driven revenues in Q1 2016 compared to Q1 2015

LYON, France, May 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EDAP TMS SA (Nasdaq:EDAP), the global leader in therapeutic ultrasound, announced today financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016, and provided an update on strategic and operational achievements. 

Marc Oczachowski, EDAP’s Chief Executive Officer, stated, “2016 is off to an excellent start, as we delivered the strongest first quarter financial performance in the Company’s history. We continue to build momentum following the FDA clearance of Ablatherm Robotic HIFU, with revenue from our HIFU division doubling over the first quarter of 2015 on strong system sales and treatment-driven revenues.

“In addition to the strong HIFU sales growth, we recently achieved an important regulatory milestone with the submission of our 510(k) application for the potential FDA clearance of Focal One®. We believe that the investments we are currently making in the expansion of our U.S. sales and marketing infrastructure for Ablatherm will play a key role in supporting the potential U.S. commercialization of Focal One as well. We generated significant interest in Ablatherm at last week’s AUA Annual Meeting in San Diego, and are in the process of rolling out a series of direct marketing initiatives aimed at both urologists and patients. HIFU has only been available in the U.S. for several months and the market is still in its infancy. Nevertheless, we are thrilled with the adoption thus far and look forward to building a solid foundation for long-term growth.

“Our UDS / Lithotripsy business also continued to perform well, achieving 18.5% year-over-year growth in the first quarter. Our ability to grow this segment of the business in a crowded and highly competitive market speaks to the breadth of our lithotripter and urinary stone laser product portfolio as well as the quality of our technology.”  

Mr. Oczachowski added, “Overall, we believe that EDAP is positioned for further near-term growth and significant longer-term success. We have a strong, global pipeline of HIFU projects in our core urology market and continue to advance our R&D efforts aimed at expanding the application of our world-class technology into other indications. With the proceeds of our recently completed registered direct offering, we are well funded to support the Company’s future growth, extend our leadership position in the markets we serve, enter new markets and create value for physicians, patients and our shareholders.”

Total revenue for the first quarter 2016 was EUR 8.7 million (USD 9.6 million), compared to EUR 6.2 million (USD 6.9 million) for the first quarter 2015.

Total revenue for the HIFU division was EUR 3.3 million (USD 3.6 million) for the first quarter 2016, compared to EUR 1.6 million (USD 1.8 million) for the same period last year.

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, and
