CAESAREA, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mazor Robotics Ltd. (TASE:MZOR; NASDAQGM:MZOR), a pioneer and a leader in the field of surgical guidance systems, expects to report record revenue of approximately $15.4 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017. In the year-ago second quarter, Mazor reported revenue of $8.3 million. During the second quarter of 2017, the Company received a total of 19 system purchase orders. Sixteen of the purchase orders were for the Mazor X™ system from customers in the U.S., including seven trade-in orders from customers who had previously purchased Renaissance® systems. In addition, the Company received purchase orders for three Renaissance systems, including two in the international market and one in the U.S. market.
“Our second quarter performance reflects the market's enthusiasm for the Mazor X system and demand continues to grow,” commented Ori Hadomi, Chief Executive Officer. “The sales momentum and the successful execution of our growth strategies, supported by ongoing product innovation and the recent leadership additions and organizational steps, position Mazor for sustainable growth.”
Mazor's system backlog at the end of the second quarter was 14 systems, similar to the first quarter ended March 31, 2017. The backlog was adjusted to reflect a Mazor X system that was ordered in a previous quarter and subsequently cancelled in the 2017 second quarter. The Company expects to deliver these systems in the second half of 2017. The Company intends to report its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017 on August 1, 2017 and will issue a press release with the specific time, dial-in credentials and webcast details.
