LYON, France, Aug. 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EDAP TMS SA (Nasdaq:EDAP), the global leader in therapeutic ultrasound, announced today financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2016, and provided an update on strategic and operational accomplishments.

Marc Oczachowski, EDAP’s Chief Executive Officer, stated, “EDAP has made steady progress in the first half of the year. The FDA clearance of Ablatherm Robotic HIFU in late 2015 has resulted in strong system sales, while the growth in treatment driven revenues continued as a result of the traction and momentum of HIFU globally.”

“The solid performance of the HIFU division, in which revenues increased 69% over the first half of 2015, is clear evidence that our market penetration strategy is working and supports the expansion and growth of our global HIFU business. We continue penetrating the U.S. market with our strategy of targeting large and recognized institutions directly, while also providing access to the entire urology community by partnering with mobilizers and service providers.

In April, we submitted a 510(k) application for our next generation Focal One® HIFU system with the FDA. We are closely working on the file through direct interaction with the agency.”

Mr. Oczachowski added, “We are pleased with our business development during the first half of 2016, and with the great traction we are achieving in our HIFU division with a significant increase in our project pipeline, particularly in the U.S. Thanks to this continued growth, the company generated an operating profit for the first half of the year and has a solid cash position that makes EDAP well-funded to further drive its growth and expansion initiatives.”
