First Quarter 2016 Financial Results

Revenues for the first quarter of 2016 were $1.1 million compared to $0.8 million for the same period in the prior year. The increase is due primarily to an increase in revenue from our CorPath Systems.

Gross profit was $30,000 in the first quarter of 2016, compared to a gross loss of $25,000 in the first quarter of 2015. Cost of revenues for the first quarter of 2016 continued to include the effect of under-utilization of production facilities which is expected to continue throughout 2016.

Research and development expenses were $2.3 million for the first quarter of 2016 compared to $2.8 million in the first quarter of 2015. The decrease is primarily due to reduced investments in prototype and consultant services related to the development of product enhancements. Selling, general and administrative expenses were $5.0 million in the first quarter of 2016, compared to $4.0 million in the first quarter of 2015. The increase is primarily due to costs associated with the recent CEO transition as well as incremental employee related costs resulting from continued investment in commercial capabilities.

Net loss was $7.6 million for the first quarter of 2016, compared to a loss of $7.2 million in the first quarter of 2015.

Cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities as of March 31, 2016 were $35.3 million.

About Corindus Vascular Robotics, Inc.

Corindus Vascular Robotics, Inc. is a global technology leader in robotic-assisted vascular interventions. The company’s CorPath System is the first FDA-cleared medical device to bring robotic-assisted precision to radial, coronary, and peripheral procedures. During the procedure, the interventional cardiologist sits at a radiation-shielded workstation to advance stents and guidewires with millimeter-by-millimeter precision. The workstation allows the physician greater control and the freedom from wearing heavy lead protective equipment that causes musculoskeletal injuries. With the CorPath System, Corindus Vascular Robotics brings robotic precision to radial and complex interventional procedures to help optimize clinical outcomes and minimize the costs associated with complications of improper stent placement with manual procedures. Corindus stands behind its product with its unique $1,000 hospital credit “One Stent Program.” For additional information, visit, and follow @CorindusInc.
