Press release Ecully, 16 April 2021 – 6 p.m.
Q1 2021 revenue
In accordance with Spineway’s forecasts, revenue for the first quarter of 2021 followed the trend of year-end 2020 and amounted to €0.9M (€1M for Q1 2020) as a result of the new public-health measures in place in the various countries in which Spineway operates. As a reminder, revenue for the first quarter is usually lower than that of other quarters due to the structure of the Group’s markets. Also, this figure does not yet show the effects of the Group’s various sales initiatives and developments that should bear fruit in the next two quarters.
Sales in Latin America remained steady despite being particularly hard-hit (especially Brazil) by the pandemic and represented 49% of the Group’s revenue. Asia represented 22% of the Group’s revenue and, after a good Q4 2020, had a gradual uptick in orders that should continue through the second quarter of 2021. Europe posted a 33% increase in sales thanks to a return to activity in France (+39%).
As announced, the Group should be receiving its first orders in the United States1 during the second quarter and, as soon as recovery from the pandemic begins, benefit from all non-emergency surgeries being scheduled again in hospitals. In addition, Spineway has a very solid cash position that allows it to continue its development and pursue negotiations for the acquisition of a European start-up2 specialized in the design, manufacture and sale of implants and instruments for spinal surgeries.
