SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/07/17 -- Invuity, Inc. (NASDAQ: IVTY), a leading medical technology company focused on minimal access surgery, today reported financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2017.

Q3 2017 Highlights

  • Revenue grew 13% to $9.6 million compared to revenue of $8.5 million in the third quarter of 2016.
  • Disposable revenue grew 17% to $7.5 million compared to $6.4 million in the third quarter of 2016.

  • PhotonBlade full launch was completed in the third quarter of 2017.

"In the third quarter we made significant progress in broadening our offering of our high value surgical products. I am particularly excited about the full launch of PhotonBlade, and the early strong positive feedback from surgeons is very encouraging," said President and Chief Executive Officer Philip Sawyer. "Although sales were modestly impacted from hurricanes in the quarter, our continued growth underscores surgeons' confidence in our products that enable superior results in minimal access surgeries."

Financial Results

Revenue was $9.6 million in the third quarter of 2017, up 13% from revenue of $8.5 million in the third quarter of 2016 driven by an increase in active accounts. Management estimates that approximately $400,000 in revenue was lost due to the impact of hurricanes.

Gross margin for the third quarter was 69.9%. Gross margin was impacted by manufacturing overhead variances and to a lesser degree, early revenues from PhotonBlade and PhotonVue. Gross margin was 73.8% for the same period in 2016.

Total operating expenses for the third quarter were $15.1 million, compared to $14.6 million in the prior year period.
