  • First quarter revenue of $3.7 million, up 25% year-over-year.
  • Commercialized two robotic systems (1 Magellan™ Robotic System and 1 Sensei® X Robotic Catheter System) in the first quarter of fiscal year 2014 compared to one robotic system in the first quarter of 2013.
  • Placed one additional Magellan System for the purpose of completing a single center clinical study with the new Magellan™ 6Fr Robotic Catheter in a variety of embolization procedures.
  • Physicians performed an estimated 827 robotic procedures in the first quarter of fiscal year 2014, up 6% year-over-year.

"We are pleased to welcome Cary Vance as President and Chief Executive Officer and look forward to his leading Hansen through the next stage of growth," said Christopher P.

"Throughout his career, Cary has delivered above average revenue growth while also driving margin expansion opportunities; and I am confident that his commercial expertise and leadership will be a tremendous asset for the Company. During this interim transition, the Company has remained focused on achieving our stated objectives for fiscal 2014 and we are particularly pleased to have recently announced the first-in-human clinical cases performed with the 6Fr Robotic Catheter as part of a clinical study to evaluate the use of the Magellan in a variety of peripheral vascular embolization procedures."

First Quarter of 2014 Financial Results

Total revenue for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014 increased 25% to $3.7 million, compared to revenue of $3.0 million in the same period in 2013. The Company commercialized two robotic systems in the quarter (1 Magellan System and 1 Sensei System). The Company uses the term "commercialized" to refer to revenue-generating system transactions, including rental transactions. The Company sold 685 catheters in the first quarter of fiscal 2014, up 16% year-over-year. Physicians performed an estimated 827 robotic procedures in the first quarter of 2014, up 6% year-over-year.

Gross profit in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 decreased 15% to $0.4 million, or 11% of sales, compared to $0.5 million, or 16% of sales, last year. First quarter gross margin was negatively impacted by $256,000 of costs associated with additional product testing required in the quarter, partially offset by lower service costs in the quarter.

Research and development expenses for the first quarter were $4.4 million, compared to $4.1 million for same period in 2013. The increase of $0.3 million is primarily due to incremental costs associated with new product development and clinical program initiatives designed to expand the utilization of our platform.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the first quarter were $9.2 million, compared to $7.4 million for the same period of 2013. The increase of $1.8 million year-over-year is primarily due to costs related to the expansion of our global sales organization and certain administrative expenses in the quarter.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2014 was $14.4 million, or $0.14 per share, compared to a net loss of $17.2 million, or $0.26 per share, in the first quarter of 2013. Net loss for the first quarter of 2014 included total non-cash stock compensation expense of $0.8 million compared to $1.1 million in the first quarter of 2013. Net loss in the first quarter of 2013 included a pre-tax loss of $4.5 million related to a litigation settlement. Weighted average shares outstanding used to compute diluted net loss per share were 103.3 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2014, compared to 67.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

Cash, cash equivalents, short-term investments and restricted cash totaled $38.4 million as of March 31, 2014, up $3.1 million quarter-over-quarter, compared to a total of $35.3 million as of December 31, 2013.

About Hansen Medical, Inc.

Hansen Medical, Inc., based in Mountain View, California, is a global leader in intravascular robotics, developing products and technology designed to enable the accurate positioning, manipulation and control of catheters and catheter-based technologies. The Company's Magellan™ Robotic System, 9Fr Magellan™ Robotic Catheter, Magellan™ 6Fr Robotic Catheter, and related accessories are intended to facilitate navigation to anatomical targets in the peripheral vasculature and subsequently provide a conduit for manual placement of therapeutic devices. The Magellan 9Fr Robotic Catheter has undergone both CE marking and 510(k) clearance and is commercially available in the European Union, and the U.S. The Magellan 6Fr Robotic Catheter has undergone 510(k) clearance in the U.S. and is in limited release for the next several months in anticipation of more wide-scale commercial availability later in 2014. In the European Union, the Company's Sensei® X Robotic Catheter System and Artisan® and Artisan Extend® Control Catheters are cleared for use during electrophysiology (EP) procedures, such as guiding catheters in the treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF), and the Lynx® Robotic Ablation Catheter is cleared for the treatment of AF. This robotic catheter system is compatible with fluoroscopy, ultrasound, 3D surface map and patient electrocardiogram data. In the U.S., the Company's Sensei X Robotic Catheter System and Artisan and Artisan Extend Control Catheters are cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for manipulation and control of certain mapping catheters in EP procedures. In the U.S., the Sensei X Robotic Catheter System is not approved for use in guiding ablation procedures; this use remains experimental. The U.S. product labeling therefore provides that the safety and effectiveness of the Sensei X Robotic Catheter System and Artisan and Artisan Extend Control Catheter for use with cardiac ablation catheters in the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias, including AF, have not been established.
