  • Consistent quarterly gross profit margin of 65% in the first quarter of 2024, and a notable increase as compared to (11)% in the same year ago period.
  • Announced positive fusion results in first patients reaching 12-month follow up in an IRB approved, multi-centered, post-market study utilizing the Catamaran® SI Joint Fusion System.
  • Received Notice of Allowance for its U.S. Patent Application of Tenon's Catamaran® SI Joint implant, further fortifying the Company's patent portfolio of the innovative technologies associated with system.
  • 42% increase in the number of surgical procedures in which the Catamaran System was used compared to the prior year.
  • Received proceeds of $2.6 million and retired $1.25 million in secured debt through a Series A Preferred Stock financing.
  • Expanded the Company's Board of Directors with the appointment of Kristine Jacques which deepened the bench with robust commercialization expertise.

Steve Foster, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tenon Medical, commented, "Our first quarter of 2024 reflected Tenon's continued progress with a 66% increase in revenue year-over-year driven by a 42% rise in surgical procedures utilizing The Catamaran System. We are encouraged by our fourth consecutive quarter of positive gross profit and stable gross margin of 65%, framing a solid path forward as we begin our second year of commercialization.

During the first quarter, we were pleased to report positive interim results from our ongoing post-market, multi-center, IRB approved clinical trial. The first patients are now hitting their 12-month milestone which includes a CT scan to assess bone healing. In addition to seeing marked improvements in widely used pain measures through VAS and ODI scores, we are seeing radiographic proof of bridging bone in these 12-month CT scans as assessed by an independent radiologist. To reinforce this positive data and progress, Tenon participated in the ISASS Conference in April featuring Dr. Matthew Davies to discuss his practical use of Catamaran in his SI treatment plan. Dr. Davies presented conclusive evidence from three Catamaran treated patients that delivered robust fusion results at the 12-month milestone. Taken together, this is further indication that Catamaran delivers on its promises."

Mr. Foster continued, "Additionally, in March, we welcomed Kristine Jacques to our Board of Directors bringing her significant experience in the medical devices field and successful go-to-market strategies of spinal-related technological innovation. We are honored to receive veteran counsel on the go-forward commercialization strategy for Tenon's Catamaran System combined with the post-market data to refine our sales and marketing approaches. In the first quarter, we hosted 12 physicians in targeted workshop activities and Catamaran focused training sessions.

Our first quarter performance demonstrated a successful first year of commercialization of The Catamaran's surgical procedure. We've achieved step change revenue growth, a stable and attractive gross margin and empirical evidence of the effectiveness of our SI implant and approach through our post-market study. As we develop our longer-term plan to further commercialize and expand our product portfolio to address SI Revision with our innovative patent protected technology, our commitment remains on delivering long-term value to all stakeholders," concluded Foster.

First Quarter 2024 Financial Results

Revenue was $719,000 in the first quarter of 2024, an increase of 66%, compared to $433,000 in the comparable year ago period. The increase in revenue for the first quarter, as compared to the same year ago period in 2023, was primarily due to an increase of 42% in the number of Catamaran System surgical procedures.

Gross profit in the first quarter of 2024, was $470,000, or 65% of revenues, compared to a gross loss of ($47,000), or (11)% of revenues, in the comparable year ago quarter. Gross profit and gross margin percentage improved due to higher revenue associated with the increase in the number of surgical procedures and realizing the operating leverage from the benefit of stable surgical costs.

Operating losses totaled $3.5 million for the first quarter of 2024, compared to a loss of $4.9 million in the first quarter of 2023. Decreases in operating expenses were primarily a result of a decline in research and development expenses and a reduction of partnership related sales and marketing expenses.

Net loss was $3.6 million for the first quarter of 2024, compared to a loss of $4.8 million in the same period of 2023. The Company expects to incur additional losses in the future.

As of March 31, 2024, cash and cash equivalents totaled $4.4 million, as compared to $2.4 million as of December 31, 2023. As of March 31, 2024, the Company had no outstanding debt due to full repayment of a secured note during the first quarter of 2024.
