  • Revenue of $2.9 million in 2023, a 324% increase from the full year of 2022.

  • 312% increase in the number of surgical procedures in which the Catamaran System was used compared to the prior year.

Steve Foster, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tenon Medical, commented, "Tenon's strong fourth quarter and full year of 2023 was underscored by solid momentum in revenue, gross profit and gross margin, with fourth quarter's solid performance driven by a 312% year-over-year increase in surgical procedures utilizing The Catamaran System. In tandem, fourth quarter revenue increased 192% to $0.8 million, and full year 2023 achieved a 324% revenue increase to $2.9 million from 2022. Our notable achievement of three consecutive quarters of positive gross profit resulted in full year 2023 gross profit of $1.2 million and is a key performance metric we utilize for internal goal setting. Gross margin followed as well, achieving 69% in the fourth quarter, a striking sequential increase from 57% in Q3 2023.

Our results throughout 2023, our first full year of commercialization, were driven by the successes of our sales and marketing team, and a cadence of targeted physician workshop activities including a fourth quarter webinar series attracting over sixty healthcare providers interested in the simple inferior-posterior implantation technique of our unique transfixing SI joint implant. For the full year, we hosted 133 physicians in Catamaran focused training sessions.

Additionally, throughout 2023, we successfully secured capital that has positioned our balance sheet to support our accelerated sales and marketing initiatives to advance the commercialization of the Catamaran System. We are appreciative of the confidence in our SI products as represented by our supportive and prominent investor syndicate. Importantly, our $1.25 million secured note financing led by Ascent Special Ventures in November 2023 has been fully repaid with the issuance in February 2024 of Series A Preferred Stock to the investors in such financing."

Mr. Foster continued, "Moving into 2024, we will leverage all we've learned in our first full year of commercialization by listening intently to our physician customers. Additionally, we will expand our educational activities to encompass the full suite of applications of our unique technology and we will continue to refine our instrument and implant offerings. We continue to make progress on our post-market multi-center study and expect a preliminary glimpse of this important data in the coming weeks.

Over the long-term, our goal is to further expand our product portfolio to address SI Revision with our innovative patent protected technology. Taken together, we are proud of our 2023 accomplishments including the revenue ramp and attractive gross profit from increased awareness and adoption of The Catamaran System. We've positioned Tenon's balance sheet and operating structure to drive continued revenue growth in 2024 as we continue to pursue a long-term value proposition for all stakeholders," concluded Foster.

Fourth Quarter & Full Year 2023 Financial Results

Revenue was $808,000 in the fourth quarter of 2023, an increase of 192%, compared to $277,000 in the comparable year ago period. Revenue was $2.9 million in the year ended December 31, 2023, an increase of 324%, compared to $691,000 in year ended December 31, 2022. The increase in revenue for the year ended December 31, 2023, as compared to 2022, was primarily due to an increase of 312% in the number of Catamaran System surgical procedures.

Gross profit in the fourth quarter of 2023, was $559,000, or 69% of revenues, compared to a gross loss of ($207,000), or (75)% of revenues, in the comparable year ago quarter. Gross profit in the year ended December 31, 2023, was $1.2 million compared to a gross loss of ($641,000) in the year ended December 31, 2022. Gross profit and gross margin percentage improved due to higher revenue associated with the increase in the number of surgical procedures and the anticipated benefit of lower standard costs.

Operating losses totaled $3.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2023, compared to a loss of $7.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. For the year ended December 31, 2023, operating losses totaled $15.7 million compared to $18.7 million in the prior year period. Decreases in operating expenses were primarily a result of decreases in sales and marketing expenses, primarily due to the terminated agreement with a distribution partner in the prior year and decreases in general and administrative expenses.

Net loss was $3.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2023, compared to a loss of $7.9 million in the same period of 2022. For the year ended December 31, 2023, net loss was $15.6 million, compared to $18.9 million in the prior year. The Company expects to incur additional losses in the future.

About Tenon Medical, Inc.

Tenon Medical, Inc., a medical device company formed in 2012, has developed The Catamaran™ SI Joint Fusion System that offers a novel, less invasive approach to the SI joint using a single, robust titanium implant. The system features the Catamaran™ Fixation Device which passes through both the axial and sagittal planes of the ilium and sacrum, stabilizing and transfixing the SI joint along its longitudinal axis. The angle and trajectory of the Catamaran surgical approach is also designed to provide a pathway away from critical neural and vascular structures and into the strongest cortical bone. Tenon is underway with a national launch of this system to address the greatly underserved market opportunity that exists in this space. For more information, please visit
