First Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Revenue was $4.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2023, an increase of 61% compared to $2.6 million for the same period in 2022. The Company booked a total of 23 EksoHealth devices in the first quarter of 2023.

Gross profit for the quarter ended March 31, 2023 was $2.0 million, an increase of 65% from the same period in 2022, representing a gross margin of approximately 49% in the first quarter of 2023, compared to a gross margin of 47% for the same period in 2022. The overall increase in gross margin was primarily due to an increase in EksoHealth device sales and lower device costs.

Sales and marketing expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2023 were $2.1 million, compared to $1.6 million for the same period in 2022. The increase was primarily due to higher compensation costs associated with the acquisition of the Human Motion Control (“HMC”) business unit and an increase in marketing activities.

Research and development expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2023 were $1.2 million, compared to $0.9 million for the same period in 2022. The increase was primarily due to higher costs associated with the acquisition of HMC.

General and administrative expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2023 were $3.2 million, compared to $2.9 million for the same period in 2022. The increase was primarily due to HMC related audit and integration costs partially offset by lower severance costs.

Net loss applicable to common stockholders for the quarter ended March 31, 2023 was $4.4 million, or $0.33 per basic and diluted share, compared to net loss of $4.6 million, or $0.36 per basic and diluted share, for the same period in 2022.

Cash on hand at March 31, 2023 was $16.3 million, compared to $20.5 million at December 31, 2022.
