  • Q1 2018 sales increased 34% to €9.5 million, driven by 54% growth in
    the North American region
    (76% exluding forex impact) coupled
    with an increase in average selling price (ASP) despite an unfavorable
    forex effect
  • 2017 revenue up 21% to €37.1 million taking the 5-year CAGR to 32%
  • Gross margin temporarily impacted during the reorganization in North
    America during 2017
  • Robust control of operating expenses
  • Cash position of €6.9 million as of December 31, 2017, strengthened in
    January 2018 by drawing a fourth tranche of €4.9 million on the bond

Marie Meynadier, CEO of EOS imaging, commented: "2017 was a year rich
in corporate achievements for EOS imaging. We successfully completed an
in-depth remodeling of our North American operations in record time to
support our development in this key market, while maintaining strong
growth of 54% on the combination of the EMEA and APAC markets. The
strong momentum in North America evidenced by Q1 2018 sales growth
supports our confidence about the effectiveness of this new organization.

Sales growth, driven by the contribution of the North American zone
and significant improvement in selling prices, will contribute
positively to the increase in the gross margin in 2018. This combined
with continued cost control of operating expenses will allow to
significantly reduce operating losses over the coming year.

The company is further strengthened and well-positioned to respond
effectively to the strong acceleration of the adoption of the EOS®
system and continue to provide healthcare professionals and patients
with innovative solutions tailored to their needs."

  • Revenue growth of 21% to €37.1 million

EOS imaging reported full year 2017 revenue of €37.1 million, an
increase of 21% compared to the prior year.

Equipment sales grew by 20% to €30.0 million. Recurring revenues were
€7.1 million, up 24% compared to 2016. Recurring revenues included sales

to support ongoing innovation, including a research tax credit

  • Gross margin temporarily impacted at 45.3%

Gross margin for the full year 2017 was 45.3%, a decrease compared to
the prior year mainly due to a reduction in average selling price which
was partially compensated by reductions in average cost of sales.

Average selling price was impacted by (1) the remodeling of the US
organization, leading to a lower North American contribution to global
revenue as well as a decrease in ASP in the first half of the year, and
(2) a forex effect.

Operating expenses excluding cost of share-based payments for the full
year 2017 totaled €23.4 million, up 11% compared to the prior year.
Global operating expenses were 24.3 million and included a €0.4 million
increase in the cost of share-based payments.

operating loss of €4.6 million in 2016.

Net financial expense for the full year 2017 totaled €2.0 million,
compared to €1.6 million in 2016, reflecting interest expense on the
Company's €15.0 million debt financing
