“Our annual 2023 revenues of $31.8 million represented an increase of 17% over full-year 2022, reflecting the strong and growing demand for our innovative Deep TMS technology,” said Hadar Levy, BrainsWay’s Chief Executive Officer. “In the fourth quarter we generated positive net income, and for the second consecutive quarter, recorded positive Adjusted EBITDA1 and positive cash flow from operations.”

“Based on our strong performance in 2023, and our belief that this trend will continue, we anticipate that our profitability momentum and positive cash generation will continue throughout this year. We expect that annual revenues in 2024 will be in the range of $37 to $40 million, representing growth of between 16% and 26% over 2023,” continued Mr. Levy. “Our robust sales pipeline, continued traction with large networks, international momentum and launch of several new studies aiming to further expand our total addressable market all continue to position BrainsWay as the leading innovative force in the TMS industry,” concluded Mr. Levy.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures
In addition to our results determined in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), including in particular operating income and net income, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA, a non-IFRS measure, is useful in evaluating our operating performance. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income adjusted for depreciation and amortization, finance income, finance expenses, income taxes, cost of share-based payments, and one-time restructuring and litigation expenses.

In addition to operating income (loss) and net income (loss), we use Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of operational efficiency. We believe that this non-IFRS financial measure is useful to investors for period-to-period comparisons of our business and in understanding and evaluating our operating results for the following reasons:

  • Adjusted EBITDA is widely used by investors and securities analysts to measure a company’s operating performance without regard to items such as stock-based compensation expenses, depreciation and amortization, finance expenses, income taxes, and certain one-time items such as restructuring and litigation expenses, that can vary substantially from company to company depending upon their financing, capital structures and the method by which assets were acquired.
  • Our management uses Adjusted EBITDA in conjunction with IFRS financial measures for planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget, as a measure of operating performance and the effectiveness of our business strategies and in communications with our board of directors concerning our financial performance; and Adjusted EBITDA provides consistency and comparability with our past financial performance, facilitates period-to-period comparisons of operations, and also facilitates comparisons with other peer companies, many of which use similar non-IFRS or non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their IFRS or GAAP results.

Adjusted EBITDA, however, should not be considered as an alternative to operating income (loss) or net income (loss) for the period and may not be indicative of the historic operating results of the Company; nor is it meant to be predictive of potential future results. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under IFRS and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures for other companies. A reconciliation between the Company's net income (loss) and Adjusted EBITDA is presented in the attached summary financial statements.

Because of these and other limitations, you should consider Adjusted EBITDA along with other IFRS-based financial performance measures, including net income (loss) and our IFRS financial results.
