MINNEAPOLIS, MN, February 6, 2018
– Cogentix Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ: CGNT), today announced preliminary revenue for the fourth quarter and full-year ended December 31, 2017. Preliminary and unaudited revenue for fourth quarter 2017 is expected to be $15.5 million, or approximately 17% growth compared to the same period in 2016. Cogentix Medical also expects similar top line growth in fiscal year 2018 as it achieved in the fourth quarter of 2017.
Preliminary and unaudited full-year 2017 revenue is expected to be $56.3 million, reflecting growth of approximately 9% over full-year 2016. Urology revenue is expected to be $49.3 million for the full year of 2017, reflecting growth of approximately 10% over 2016.
The company also announced the launch of its dedicated urology R&D center. The center is based in Israel and will focus on developing next generation products that enhance the company’s ability to transform the practice of urology. Israel is world renowned as a hub for innovation in biomedical engineering and medical device clinical development. Cogentix has previously tapped into this wealth of expertise through its $2 million investment in Vensica, and the new R&D center will further enable the company to access exceptional engineers and innovators in an ecosystem with a track record of successful innovation.
“Our revenue in the fourth quarter of 2017 was by far the highest quarterly revenue achieved in the history of the company. Both our fourth quarter and full year 2017 top line results demonstrate the continued growth of our urology and uro-gynecology product lines, and we believe there are continued significant growth opportunities in these large and expanding markets,” said Darin Hammers, President and CEO of Cogentix Medical
“Our strong top line performance, combined with an increased focus on innovation and our continued business development efforts, enhance our ability to become a leading consolidator of innovative products and technologies that can provide benefit to patients, physicians and care centers in the urology arena.”
