IceCure Medical Reports Financial Results for the First Half of 2021 and Recent Operating Highlights


CAESAREA, Israel, Sept. 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- IceCure Medical Ltd. (NASDAQ: ICCM) (TASE: ICCM) ("IceCure" or the "Company"), developer of the next generation minimally invasive cryoablation technology that destroys tumors by freezing, today reported its financial results as of and for the six-month period ended June 30, 2021.

First Half 2021 and Recent Operating Highlights

  • The FDA granted Breakthrough Device Designation for the ProSense® system for treatment of various indications, including the use in treatment of patients with T1 invasive breast cancer and/or patients not suitable for surgical alternatives for the treatment of breast cancer.
  • Presented positive interim results from the ICE3 clinical trial for cryoablation of small low-risk breast cancer tumors using the ProSense System at the 22nd Annual Meeting of the American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBrS) held on April 30, 2021.
  • Continued process with the FDA on a regulatory path forward to make ProSense System available to the breast cancer patients that can benefit from the Company's minimally-invasive cryoablation solution based on the ICE3 clinical trial results.
  • Peer reviewed article titled "Cryoablation Without Excision for Low-Risk, Early-Stage Breast Cancer: 3-Year Interim Analysis of Ipsilateral Breast Tumor Recurrence in the ICE3 Trial"" was published in the Annals of Surgical Oncology. The lead author of the article was Dr. Richard Fine, MD, FACS, an ICE3 investigator who serves as Program Director of the Breast Surgical Oncology Fellowship and as Director of Research and Education at the West Comprehensive Breast Center in Germantown, TN.
  • Expanded the Company's global distribution network, including:      
          o  Mutlu Medikim Tibbi Malzeme TIC. A.S. ("Mutlu Medikim A.S.") to exclusively sell the ProSense System in Turkey.
          o  Novomed Ltd, to distribute the ProSense System in certain parts of India. This represents the Company's second distributor in India.
          o  KTRFIOS IMPORTACAO E EXPORTACAO LTDA to exclusively sell the ProSense System in Brazil.
          o  Asian distribution partnership with Terumo Corporation (Tokyo: 4543, TRUMY:OTC US) expanded to include Thailand, in addition to Japan and Singapore.
  • The R&D team has advanced the development of a next generation systems of single probe system and multi probe system, as compared to the current ProSense System that features one probe. These additional probes will allow the new system to treat bigger tumors or more than one tumor in a patient at the same time.
  • The Company's ordinary shares commenced trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market on August 26, 2021.
  • Completed the previously announced $15.0 million private placement, including a U.S. investors.

"I am excited by our team's growing list of accomplishments throughout the business thus far in 2021. This includes the significant progress we've made expanding the global distribution network for our ProSense Cryoablation System. This steady growth is especially impressive taking into account the impact of the ongoing global pandemic. I have great appreciation for the team we've put together and their continued efforts to bring our system to patients," commented Eyal Shamir, Chief Executive Officer of IceCure.

"As the most commonly diagnosed cancer, breast cancer continues to be a serious life-threatening disease with an estimated 325,0001 new breast cancer cases diagnosed in the U.S. in 2020, and more than 2.3 million new cases worldwide in 20202. The incidence of breast cancer is expected to continue to rise, with the U.S. National Cancer Institute estimating a 50% increase in new cases of breast cancer in 20303. As such, we have dedicated a tremendous amount of our time and resources towards treating breast cancer with our ProSense System, which we believe enables shorter, simpler, and cost-effective procedures with lower risk of complications," continued Mr. Shamir. "We are working relentlessly to establish a regulatory path towards making the ProSense System available to early-stage breast cancer patients in the U.S. or high-risk patients to surgery as a minimal invasive treatment."

"Being a Nasdaq listed company has made it easier for global institutional investors to be part of our journey. It also helps us expand our global reach and execute on our international expansion through a distribution network of leading medical device companies and distributors across Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America. These partners provide specialized local experience and resources to navigate each country's regulatory pathways and distribution needs. We believe there are tremendous opportunities to continue building out this network with new and existing partners in additional countries and territories," concluded Mr. Shamir.

Financial Results for the Six-Month Period Ended June 30, 2021

For the six months ended June 30, 2021, revenue increased by 12% to approximately $2.1 million, compared to approximately $1.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020.

Gross profit was $1.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021, which is relatively unchanged compared to the six months ended June 30, 2020. Gross margin was 58% for the six-month period ended June 30, 2021, compared to 62% for the six months ended June 30, 2020. The decrease in gross margin compared to the same period last year is attributable to the changes in the mix of products sold, and sales to distributors instead of direct sales to end customers.

Total operating expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2021 were approximately $4.9 million. Total operating expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2020 were approximately $2.8 million. The increase in operating expenses is attributable to the development of the Company's next generation cryoablation systems and probes and the Nasdaq listing related expenses.

As a result of the increase of the Company's expenses, net loss reported for the six-month period ended June 30, 2021, increased to approximately $3.8 million, or $0.16 per share, compared with a net loss of approximately $1.6 million, or $0.11 per share, for the same period last year.

As of June 30, 2021, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $18.6 million, compared with approximately $3.5 million as of December 31, 2020.
