Vycor Medical Reports Financial Results for the year ended December 31st, 2016

 

BOCA RATON, FL (March 31, 2017) –

Vycor Medical, Inc. (Vycor) (OTCQB: VYCO), a provider of innovative and superior surgical and therapeutic solutions, reported financial results for the year ended December 31, 2016.

 

Vycor’s revenues for the year ended December 31, 2016 were $1,452,000 compared to $1,139,000 for 2015. Operating Loss was $1,591,000, compared to $1,991,000 for the same period in 2015, a reduction of 20%, and Cash Operating Loss1 was $594,000, as compared to $1,348,000, a reduction of 56%.

 

Highlights

 

Vycor’s VBAS sales grew by 42% in 2016 compared to 2015, with growth being experienced in both the US and international markets. The significant body of clinical data now built up evidencing the clinical superiority of VBAS, with 9 papers being published or presented during 2015 and 2016 alone, is now starting to flow through to increased adoption and revenues.
   
In particular a new clinical study was published during 2016 in the Journal of Neurosurgery by surgeons at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Department of Neurological Surgery. This study provided very detailed information on the use of VBAS in surgery, and highlighted the clinical benefits it brings to surgeons. A study published in World Neurosurgery by surgeons at the University of Messina, Italy demonstrated the usefulness of VBAS in conjunction with endoscopic surgery for intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) procedures, a large market segment.
   
Vycor continues to build on its patent portfolio and has filed an additional five new patents for VBAS-related technologies during 2016, and on the grant of a European patent filed 4 national patents. Vycor now has 16 granted/issued and 15 pending patents for VBAS technologies.
   
NovaVision generated an increase in new patient starts of 32% in 2016 over 2015.
   
We have now substantially broadened the delivery and licensing model for the NovaVision Center Model, comprising a vision diagnostics program and the NeuroEyeCoach training program, in response to feedback from clinics. We are now able to offer hardware and digital software solutions with a range of licensing options to rehabilitation centers, clinics and other healthcare professionals.
   
  In September 2016 a rigorous peer reviewed clinical study on NeuroEyeCoach therapy was published in BioMed Research International. The study concluded “NeuroEyeCoach can be used as an effective rehabilitation tool to develop compensatory strategies in patients with visual field deficits after brain injury” and that NeuroEyeCoach can be viewed as being the first evidence-based, vision-specific, clinical gold standard registered medical device accessible to patients at home or in clinical settings. This study generated considerable attention in both the popular and professional press, and is an important validation of the efficacy of NovaVision’s therapies.

Management Commentary

 

“Vycor’s results for 2016 as a whole demonstrate the continued realization of Vycor’s strategy to grow our two businesses while maintaining our low cost base, with the objective of continuing to decrease our Cash Operating Loss2, which reduced to $89,000 for the fourth quarter compared to $247,000 for the same period in 2015; and to $594,000 for the whole of 2016 compared to $1,591,000 in 2015,” said Peter Zachariou, CEO of Vycor Medical.

 

“The Vycor division’s sales growth of 42% for the year demonstrates the benefit of the clinical data flowing through to increased adoption, delivered by a marketing and distribution network which we continue to strengthen.”

Non-GAAP Measures

 

We make reference to non-GAAP financial information in this press release together with a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures. Specifically, we have provided non-GAAP Cash Operating Expenses and non-GAAP Cash Operating Loss measures that exclude Depreciation, Amortization and non-cash Stock Compensation.

 

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with insight into what is used by management to conduct a more meaningful and consistent comparison of our ongoing operating results and trends, compared with historical results. This presentation is also consistent with the measures management uses to measure the performance of ongoing operating results against prior periods and against our internally developed targets. There are limitations in using these non-GAAP financial measures because they are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financial measures. Investors and potential investors should consider non-GAAP financial measures only in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP and the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures in this press release.
