BURLINGTON, Mass. and JERUSALEM, Nov. 17, 2021 (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 third quarter 2021 financial results and provided an operational update.

Recent Financial and Operational Highlights

  • For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, revenues were $8.1 million and $21.2 million, respectively, a 34% and 41% increase, respectively, as compared to the same periods in 2020.
  • As of September 30, 2021, BrainsWay’s Deep TMS™ installed base was 717 total systems, a 22% increase from the installed base at the end of Q3 2020.
  • As of September 30, 2021, the total number of add-on helmets was 280, representing obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) treatment capability on 39% of the Company’s installed base.
  • Received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) allowing the Company to market its Deep TMS System for the reduction of comorbid anxiety symptoms in adult patients with depression, also known as anxious depression.
  • Transitioned to limited market release of Deep TMS for smoking addiction, designed to engage select customers in preparation for full market launch.
  • Pivotal, multicenter, placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical trial data supporting the use of Deep TMS as a safe and effective treatment for smoking addiction published in World Psychiatry.
  • Hosted key opinion leader (KOL) webinar on Company’s Deep TMS therapy for treating mental health disorders.
  • Appointed world-renowned brain stimulation expert, Zafiris “Jeff” Daskalakis, M.D., Ph.D., Chair of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of California San Diego (UCSD) School of Medicine, to Scientific Advisory Board.

“We are extremely pleased with the strong momentum in our business,” stated Christopher von Jako, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of BrainsWay. “We generated $8.1 million in revenue, which represented a 34% increase over our third quarter 2020. In addition, our revenues during the first nine months of 2021 are nearly equal to those achieved during the entire fiscal year 2020, which is indicative of the growing demand for our Deep TMS therapy in multiple indications.  We have now demonstrated year-over-year growth in five consecutive quarters and believe the progress we have achieved during this period is sustainable.”

“The overwhelming majority of systems shipped this quarter included an add-on helmet for OCD, contributing to the strong revenue achieved during the quarter,” continued Dr. von Jako. “Add-on helmets for OCD treatments now are included in nearly 40% of our installed base, reflecting a high level of increased customer demand and recent positive coverage decisions from two large healthcare plans. In addition, our most recent FDA clearance for Deep TMS Therapy for anxious depression was an important advancement for our business, as anxiety is the most prevalent comorbidity to a primary diagnosis of depression. Moreover, our efforts to prepare for the full commercial launch of our smoking addiction helmet are in full swing, with the limited marketing release of this product now underway, as well as the publication in World Psychiatry of positive data from our pivotal study in this important indication.”

Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

  • Total revenues for the third quarter of 2021 were $8.1 million, compared to $6.0 million in the third quarter of 2020, an increase of 34%. Gross margin for the third quarter of 2021 was 76%, compared to 75% for the third quarter of 2020.
  • Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2021 were $7.4 million, compared to $5.1 million for the third quarter of 2020.
  • For the three months ended September 30, 2021, the net loss was $1.8 million, compared to a net loss of $1.0 million during the same period in the prior year.
  • As of September 30, 2021, the Company had cash and short-term deposits of approximately $55.3 million, compared to $17.2 million at December 31, 2020.
