  • Q1 2018 sales increased 34% to €9.5 million, driven by 54% growth in the North American region
    (76% exluding forex impact) coupled with an increase in average selling price (ASP) despite an unfavorable forex effect
  • 2017 revenue up 21% to €37.1 million taking the 5-year CAGR to 32% (2012-2017)
  • Gross margin temporarily impacted during the reorganization in North America during 2017
  • Robust control of operating expenses
  • Cash position of €6.9 million as of December 31, 2017, strengthened in January 2018 by drawing a fourth tranche of €4.9 million on the bond issue

Marie Meynadier, CEO of EOS imaging, commented: “2017 was a year rich in corporate achievements for EOS imaging. We successfully completed an in-depth remodeling of our North American operations in record time to support our development in this key market, while maintaining strong growth of 54% on the combination of the EMEA and APAC markets. The strong momentum in North America evidenced by Q1 2018 sales growth supports our confidence about the effectiveness of this new organization.

Sales growth, driven by the contribution of the North American zone and significant improvement in selling prices, will contribute positively to the increase in the gross margin in 2018. This combined with continued cost control of operating expenses will allow to significantly reduce operating losses over the coming year.

The company is further strengthened and well-positioned to respond effectively to the strong acceleration of the adoption of the EOS® system and continue to provide healthcare professionals and patients with innovative solutions tailored to their needs.”

  • Revenue growth of 21% to €37.1 million

EOS imaging reported full year 2017 revenue of €37.1 million, an increase of 21% compared to the prior year.

  • Gross margin temporarily impacted at 45.3%

Gross margin for the full year 2017 was 45.3%, a decrease compared to the prior year mainly due to a reduction in average selling price which was partially compensated by reductions in average cost of sales.

Average selling price was impacted by (1) the remodeling of the US organization, leading to a lower North American contribution to global revenue as well as a decrease in ASP in the first half of the year, and (2) a forex effect.

  • Solid control of operating expenses

Operating expenses excluding cost of share-based payments for the full year 2017 totaled €23.4 million, up 11% compared to the prior year. Global operating expenses were 24.3 million and included a €0.4 million increase in the cost of share-based payments.
