SECOND QUARTER 2017 HIGHLIGHTS

The major accomplishments of the second quarter were to:

  1. Ship new and expanded orders for QuantaFlo™, our vascular testing product, which resulted in quarterly revenue growth of 25% compared to the first quarter of 2017; and
  2. Make additional investments in research and development, technical and clinical services to support a larger and growing installed base of business.

We expect revenue from QuantaFlo™ to continue to grow due to an increasing number of installations resulting from new orders, higher average pricing as compared to its predecessor product and the recurring revenue business models that we employ.  A significant number of orders were installed near the end of the second quarter of 2017 and were billed beginning in July 2017, which we expect to result in continued quarterly revenue growth in the third quarter of this year.

We also expanded our infrastructure to support the volume of business.  Our research and development efforts continue to bring forth enhancements to our product's capabilities, which we believe will further drive customer orders.

In the second quarter and over the next several months, we expect cost of revenue to increase as we customize equipment and software for clients to meet their cybersecurity and data analysis needs.  It is still our intent to grow revenue at a faster rate than expenses and to achieve profitability.

"Our immediate objective is to become the standard of care for testing to identify patients at risk for heart attacks and strokes to enable better preventive medical care," said Dr. Murphy-Chutorian.  "The second quarter revenue performance was outstanding and propels us forward to an exciting full year of continued achievement," he concluded.
