BURLINGTON, Mass. and JERUSALEM, May 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BrainsWay Ltd. (NASDAQ & TASE: BWAY) (“BrainsWay” or the “Company”), a global leader in advanced noninvasive neurostimulation treatments for mental health disorders, today reported first quarter 2022 financial results and provided an operational update.

Recent Financial and Operational Highlights

  • For the three months ended March 31, 2022, revenues were $8.0 million, a 30% increase as compared to the prior year period.
  • As of March 31, 2022, BrainsWay’s Deep TMS installed base was 790 total systems, a 21% increase from the installed base at the same point in the prior year.
  • As of March 31, 2022, the Company had shipped 337 OCD coils as add-on helmets to certain of BrainsWay’s new and existing systems.
  • Cash, cash equivalents and short-term deposits as of March 31, 2022, amounted to $54.7 million, compared with $57.3 million as of December 31, 2021.
  • Hosted key opinion leader (KOL) webinar on Company’s Deep TMS therapy for treating anxious depression.
  • Enhanced leadership structure to drive Company’s growth:
    • Promoted Hadar Levy to Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.
    • Appointed Joachim “Joe” Seidel, Ph.D., to the newly created position of Vice President of Corporate Development and Strategy.
    • Appointed Eric Hirt as Vice President of U.S. Sales.

“Our strong first quarter performance reflects the continued momentum in our overall business,” stated Christopher von Jako, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of BrainsWay. “We generated $8.0 million in revenue for the first quarter of 2022, which represented a 30% increase as compared to the first quarter of 2021, and our seventh consecutive quarter of year-over-year growth. These results are especially impressive as the team faced meaningful operational challenges due to the Omicron surge in the first half of the quarter.”

“Importantly, demand for our Deep TMS therapy in multiple indications continues to grow, and we anticipate that the current positive operating trends we are experiencing will continue throughout 2022 and beyond,” continued Dr. von Jako. “As such, in order to leverage key tailwinds in our business, our recent strategically enhanced leadership structure is aimed at driving long-term growth globally.”

First Quarter 2022 Financial Results

  • Total revenues for the first quarter of 2022 were $8.0 million, compared to $6.1 million in the first quarter of 2021, an increase of 30%.
  • Gross margin for the first quarter of 2022 was 77%, compared to 76% for the first quarter 2021.
  • Operating expenses for the first quarter of 2022 totaled $7.6 million, compared with $5.5 million for the first quarter of 2021.
  • Operating loss for the first quarter of 2022 was $1.5 million, compared to a loss of $801,000 for the same period in 2021.
