August 12, 2020 at 7:00 AM EDT

CRESSKILL, N.J. and JERUSALEM, Israel, Aug. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BrainsWay Ltd. (NASDAQ & TASE: BWAY) (“BrainsWay” or the “Company”), a global leader in the advanced non-invasive treatment of brain disorders, today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, and provided an operational update.

Recent Financial and Operational Highlights

  • For the three months ended June 30, 2020, the impact of the temporary shutdown of certain physician offices due to COVID-19 resulted in revenues of $4.8 million, a decrease of 15% as compared to the same period of 2019.
  • As of June 30, 2020, BrainsWay’s Deep TMS installed base was 567 total systems, a 24% increase from the same period in 2019.
  • Achieved key reimbursement progress for Deep TMS in major depressive disorder.
    • Received multiple new positive coverage decisions, including reduced prior treatment failures to qualify for Deep TMS.

“With most clinics having now reopened, we see patients steadily returning for Deep TMS treatments,” stated Christopher von Jako, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of BrainsWay. “As mental health challenges have dramatically risen throughout the course of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we remain focused on enhancing the awareness of and education about Deep TMS on multiple fronts. We also continue to execute our expense reduction plan in order to ensure our business is appropriately positioned to persevere in the current healthcare environment, while also strengthening our long-term growth prospects. We are proud of the resilience and commercial success our business has demonstrated under challenging circumstances, including sequential revenue growth of 16%, and expect that significant momentum in our business will emerge once the impact of COVID-19 subsides.”

Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

  • Total revenues for the second quarter of 2020 totaled $4.8 million, compared with $5.7 million for the second quarter of 2019, a decrease of 15%. Quarterly recurring lease revenues were $3.4 million, representing an increase of 4% over the second quarter of 2019, and comprised 70% of total revenues.
  • Gross margin for the second quarter of 2020 was 79%, an increase when compared to second quarter 2019 gross margin of 76%, which resulted from lower manufacturing overhead costs in the quarter.
  • Operating expenses for the quarter totaled $4.0 million, compared with $7.0 million for the second quarter of 2019. The decrease is in-line with the Company’s efforts to enhance efficiency and to lower operational expenses in light of the financial impact of COVID-19.
  • Operating loss for the quarter was $0.2 million, compared with an operating loss of $2.7 million for the same period in 2019.  
  • As of June 30, 2020, the Company had cash and short-term investments of approximately $17.8 million, compared to $21.9 million at December 31, 2019, reflecting a cash use of $4.1 million for the first half of 2020 resulting from operating losses and timing of inventory deliveries from vendors.
