Mazor Robotics Reports First Quarter 2012 Financial Results

- Increasing Utilization and Strong Sales of Renaissance™ Systems Drive 45% Revenue Growth from Prior Year -

- Conference Call at 10:30 a.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 -

CAESAREA, Israel — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 16, 2012 — Mazor Robotics Ltd. (TASE: MZOR), a developer of innovative surgical robots and complementary products, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012. Unless noted specifically otherwise, all figures are reported in New Israeli Shekel (NIS).

Revenue in the first quarter grew 45% to NIS 9.2 million from the same period a year ago and included the sale of three Renaissance™ systems. Mazor introduced the Renaissance system, its next generation surgical robotic system that enables surgeons to conduct minimally invasive and complex spine surgeries in a safe and accurate manner, to the U.S. market during the fourth quarter of 2011.

“Our strong revenue growth in the first quarter was driven by increased utilization and stronger sales in the U.S. of our Renaissance system, the only robotic technology specifically for the spine available in the marketplace,” said Ori Hadomi, Chief Executive Officer of Mazor Robotics. “With the sale of three systems in the U.S. this quarter, we continue to grow the installed base and are building the foundation for sustained growth in Renaissance procedures. We are particularly pleased that two of the systems were sold in such a prestigious and leading organization as the Florida Hospital Network.”

Gross margin expanded to 75% in the first quarter, compared to 73% in the prior year quarter, primarily due to higher sales volume and an increase in system pricing with the launch of Renaissance.

Operating expenses for the first quarter were NIS 11.1 million compared to NIS 9.7 million in the year ago period. The modest increase mainly reflects higher sales and marketing costs as Mazor continues to penetrate new markets in Asia and Europe, as well as expand its U.S. sales force.

Net loss for the first quarter was reduced by 16% to NIS 4.7 million, or NIS 0.21 per share, compared to a net loss of NIS 5.6 million, or NIS 0.27 per share, reported for the year ago quarter.

During the first quarter, the Company used approximately NIS 6.9 million in cash for operations. As of March 31, 2012, the Company had cash, cash equivalents and investments of NIS 53.7 million.
