SAN RAFAEL, Calif., April 29, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ekso Bionics Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: EKSO) (the “Company” or “Ekso Bionics”), an industry leader in exoskeleton technology for medical and industrial use, today reported financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2024.

Recent Highlights and Accomplishments

  • Received final payment determination for Medicare reimbursement from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”) for Ekso Indego Personal
  • Reported revenues of $3.8 million for the first quarter of 2024
  • Achieved gross margin of 52% for the quarter ended March 31, 2024

“We started 2024 by making meaningful progress on our long-term business objectives highlighted by CMS’ final payment determination of our Ekso Indego Personal for Medicare reimbursement,” said Scott Davis, Chief Executive Officer of Ekso Bionics. “The pricing decision from CMS marked a pivotal step in our commercial strategy as we build demand within the clinical, home and community use settings. Looking ahead, we remain focused on further developing the market for Indego Personal, while strengthening relationships with new and existing network operators for our Enterprise devices to maximize our growth potential.”

First Quarter 2024 Financial Results
Revenue was $3.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2024, compared to $4.1 million for the same period in 2023. The Company sold a total of 29 EksoHealth units in the first quarter of 2024.

Gross profit for the quarters ended March 31, 2024 and March 31, 2023 were $2.0 million, representing a gross margin of approximately 52% in the first quarter of 2024, compared to a gross margin of 49% for the same period in 2023. The overall increase in gross margin was primarily due to lower EksoHealth device and service costs.

Sales and marketing expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2024 were $1.8 million, compared to $2.1 million for the same period in 2023. The decrease was primarily due to lower headcount.

General and administrative expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2024 were $2.3 million, compared to $3.2 million for the same period in 2023. The decrease was primarily due to a decrease in legal activity, lower headcount, and the absence of costs associated with the acquisition and integration of Human Motion Control (“HMC”) in the comparable quarter.

Net loss applicable to common stockholders for the quarter ended March 31, 2024 was $3.4 million, or $0.20 per basic and diluted share, compared to net loss of $4.4 million, or $0.33 per basic and diluted share, for the same period in 2023.

Cash and restricted cash as of March 31, 2024 was $8.8 million, compared to $8.6 million at December 31, 2023.
