August 5, 2020

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C–(BUSINESS WIRE)–TransEnterix, Inc. (NYSE American: TRXC), a medical device company that is digitizing the interface between the surgeon and the patient to improve minimally invasive surgery, today announced its operating and financial results for the second quarter of 2020.

Recent Highlights

  • Submitted CE Mark application for the initial Intelligent Surgical Unit in the second quarter and expect approval by the end of 2020
  • Filed FDA 510(k) submission for general surgery indication in the third quarter
  • Reduced operating expenses sequentially over the first quarter of 2020 as a result of cost saving initiatives
  • Raised approximately $15.0 million in gross proceeds in an underwritten public offering in July of 2020
  • The Company now expects to have cash to support its operations into the second quarter of 2021
  • Year-to-date, six clinical programs initiated with two additional systems pending installation

“Despite operating in a challenging environment throughout the second quarter, we made significant progress towards our goals for the year, which include increasing system installations, increasing procedure volumes globally, and continuing to gain regulatory approvals for new technologies and expanding indications for use for the Senhance,” said Anthony Fernando, President, and CEO of TransEnterix. “Leveraging the momentum we generated in the first quarter, we were able to sign two new system leases in the quarter while at the same time maintaining the quality of our pipeline. Additionally, we made progress against our portfolio expansion and clinical validation efforts. While procedure volumes were down in the quarter, we saw a strong rebound from April to June which has continued into July. We continue to believe we are well-positioned to deliver on our strategy and bring transformative technology to surgeons, hospitals, and patients globally.”

Commercial and Clinical Update

During the quarter, two Senhance systems were installed, one in the U.S. and one in Europe.

Subsequent to the end of the second quarter, one additional system has been installed in Europe.

Year to date in 2020, the Company has installed six Senhance systems globally and has two systems pending installation.

In late July, the Company filed its 510(k) submission with the FDA for a general surgery indication expansion, as announced on August 4, 2020.

Underwritten Public Offering

On July 6, 2020, the Company announced the closing of an underwritten public offering, raising gross proceeds of approximately $15.0 million, which included the full exercise of the underwriter’s over-allotment option to purchase additional shares.

Second Quarter Financial Results

For the three months ended June 30, 2020, the Company reported revenue of $0.7 million as compared to revenue of $3.6 million in the three months ended June 30, 2019. Revenue in the second quarter of 2020 included no system sales, $0.3 million in system leasing and instruments and accessories, and $0.3 million in services.

For the three months ended June 30, 2020, total operating expenses were $13.6 million, as compared to $22.2 million in the three months ended June 30, 2019.

For the three months ended June 30, 2020, net loss attributable to common stockholders was $14.1 million, or $0.27 per share, as compared to a net loss of $20.2 million, or $1.21 per share, in the three months ended June 30, 2019.

For the three months ended June 30, 2020, the adjusted net loss attributable to common stockholders was $10.9 million, or $0.21 per share, as compared to an adjusted net loss of $19.2 million, or $1.15 per share in the three months ended June 30, 2019, after adjusting for the following items: change in fair value of warrant liabilities, amortization of intangible assets, change in fair value of contingent consideration, and deemed dividend related to the conversion of preferred stock into common stock. Adjusted net loss attributable to common stockholders is a non-GAAP financial measure. See the reconciliation from GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures below.

The Company had cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash of approximately $16.2 million as of June 30, 2020.

As a result of restructuring, cost optimization efforts and recent equity financing, together with anticipated cash received from product and instrument sales and leases, we believe that current cash on hand will be sufficient to meet our anticipated cash needs into the second quarter of 2021.

Business Outlook

Given the continued uncertainty that exists within the global healthcare market, we cannot currently predict the specific extent or duration of the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on our financial and operating results. As a result, we are not providing forward looking revenue guidance at this time.
