BEDFORD, Mass., Nov. 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ConforMIS, Inc. (NASDAQ:CFMS), a medical technology company that uses its proprietary iFit Image-to-Implant technology platform to develop, manufacture and sell joint replacement implants that are customized to fit each patient’s unique anatomy, announced today financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2015.
- ConforMIS resumed full production in October after resolving the issues associated with the voluntary recall that it announced on August 31, 2015
- Total revenue of $13.9 million, up 16% year-over-year on a reported basis and up 20% year-over-year on a constant currency basis
Product revenue of $13.5 million, up 12% year-over-year on a reported basis and up 17% year-over-year on a constant currency basis
- U.S. product revenue increased 19% year-over-year
- Rest of World product revenue increased 11% year-over-year on a constant currency basis
“The third quarter of 2015 was challenging in view of the voluntary recall, but it turned into a productive quarter with an increase in product revenues of 17% year-over-year on a constant currency basis,” said Philipp Lang, MD, MBA, Chief Executive Officer of ConforMIS, Inc. “We successfully navigated an unexpected production issue within the timeframes that we communicated and returned to full operations in October. While the voluntary recall in the third quarter affected our sales and gross margin as expected, we anticipate this will reverse course in the fourth quarter now that we have resumed full production. We also continued to expand our surgeon user base in the third quarter while the voluntary recall was ongoing. We believe this is a direct reflection of the clinical superiority of our products which also results in the strong loyalty shown by our existing surgeons. Additionally, the limited launch of our new knee product, the iTotal PS, is progressing favorably, and the Company anticipates a full commercial launch of that product at the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons in March of 2016, as originally planned.”

Third Quarter 2015 Financial Results
Total revenue increased $1.9 million to $13.9 million, or 16% year-over-year. Total revenue increased 20% year-over-year on a constant currency basis. Total revenue in the third quarter of 2015 includes royalty revenue of $0.4 million related to ongoing royalty payments.
Product revenue increased $1.5 million to $13.5 million, or 12% year-over-year on a reported basis and 17% on a constant currency basis. U.S. product revenue increased $1.7 million to $10.5 million, or 19% year-over-year, and Rest of World product revenue decreased $0.2 million to $3.0 million, or 6% year-over-year on a reported basis and increased 11% on a constant currency basis. Product revenue from sales of iTotal CR, iUni and iDuo increased $0.7 million to $12.7 million, or 6% year-over-year on a reported basis and 10% on a constant currency basis. Product revenue from sales of iTotal PS, which we launched on a limited basis in the United States in February 2015, was $0.8 million in the third quarter of 2015.
Gross profit decreased $1.1 million to $3.6 million, or 26% of revenue, compared to $4.7 million, or 39% of revenue, in the third quarter of 2014. The decrease in gross margin was primarily caused by the additional production costs and decrease in revenue due to the voluntary recall and, to a lesser extent, changes in foreign exchange rates compared to the prior year.
Total operating expenses increased $4.8 million to $19.8 million, or 32% year-over-year. The increase in expenses was driven primarily by higher sales and marketing and general and administrative expenses, which was offset by slightly lower research and development expense compared to the third quarter of 2014.
Net loss was $17.1 million, or $(0.45) per share, compared to a net loss of $10.4 million, or $(2.44) per share, for the same period last year.
2015 Financial Guidance
ConforMIS reaffirms the financial guidance provided on August 31, 2015.

This revenue guidance includes an $8 million reduction in revenue from the voluntary recall. The Company’s total revenue guidance also includes approximately $3 million of currency headwind in our revenue results.
The Company’s 2015 revenue guidance assumes the following:
