LOS GATOS, CA/ ACCESSWIRE / August 11, 2022 / Tenon Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ:TNON) ('Tenon Medical' or the 'Company'), a medical device company that has developed a proprietary, U.S. Food and Drug Administration ('FDA') cleared surgical implant system for sacroiliac joint ('SI Joint') fixation/fusion surgery, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

Recent Highlights

  • Ongoing early commercialization of the Catamaran™ SI Joint Fusion System with a full launch to coincide with the North American Spine Society (NASS) meeting (Chicago, IL), October 12-15, 2022
  • As of August 11, 2022, the Company hosted 21 physician workshop events
  • Revenue of $135,000 in the second quarter of 2022, a 514% increase from the same period in 2021, and an 90% increase on a sequential basis compared to the first quarter 2022
  • Closed $16 Million Initial Public Offering ('IPO') on April 29, 2022
  • Company's common stock commenced trading on the Nasdaq Capital Markets under the ticker symbol 'TNON'

'The second quarter of 2022 was highlighted by increasing momentum on our commercialization pathway, supported by the addition of new capital from our transition to a public company,' commented Steve Foster, CEO and President of Tenon Medical. 'We believe our Nasdaq listing will help elevate the Company's public profile, expand our shareholder base, improve liquidity and enhance shareholder value. The net proceeds to Tenon from the offering amounted to $13.8 million, bringing our June 30, 2022, cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments to $16.0 million.

'With our finalized commercial ready product and first cases successfully completed, we are now highly focused on introducing and educating physicians to our optimized surgical approach for SI Joint Fusion that has the potential to deliver significant and sustained reduction in SI Joint Pain. To date we have hosted a total of 21 physician workshop events, all of which have provided remarkably positive feedback in the clinician community. Looking ahead on our commercialization pathway and the addition of our synthetic training model option, we expect the number of these events to accelerate in the back half of 2022.

'There is significant unmet market opportunity for an authentic arthrodesis procedure and transformative implant system to treat SI-Joint dysfunction that very often causes lower back pain. We believe the Catamaran™ System will become a compelling alternative to deliver pain relief for patients suffering from SI Joint issues. We look forward to providing additional updates in the months to come as we ramp commercialization of the Catamaran™ System, building long-term value for our shareholders,' concluded Foster.

Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Revenue was $135,000 in the second quarter of 2022, an increase of 514%, compared to $22,000 in the comparable year ago period. The increase was primarily due to a 433% increase in the number of surgical procedures in which the Catamaran™ System was used.

Gross loss in the three months ended June 30, 2022 was $(136,000) compared to a gross profit of $13,000 in the comparable year ago quarter, due to the increase in the operations overhead and spending. Gross margin percentage decreased from 59% to (101)%, driven by higher operations overhead, spending, and partially offset by higher revenue per procedure resulting from an amended and restated national distribution agreement.

Operating losses totaled $5.5 million for the second quarter of 2022, compared to a loss of $1.6 million in the second quarter 2021. The increase in operating expenses was a result of the creation of an infrastructure to support future growth and the ongoing transition to a public operating company.

Net loss was $5.5 million for the second quarter of 2022, compared a loss of $1.7 million in the same period of 2021 and expect to incur additional losses in the future.

As of June 30, 2022, cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments totaled $16.0 million. The Company believes existing cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments will enable Tenon Medical to fund hiring additional personnel, product development and sales and marketing activities including clinician training and clinical research activities.
