“We continue to generate significant revenue growth through the leasing and use of our Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation system (Deep TMS),” said Yaacov Michlin, Chief Executive Officer of BrainsWay. “Our strong second quarter revenues of $3.7 million represented growth of 57% over the second quarter of 2017.  Additionally, our backlog of committed projected revenues grew to more than $29 million at the end of the second quarter of 2018.”

“We were extremely pleased to recently receive De Novo clearance from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for our Deep TMS system for the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) in adults.  With more than two million U.S. adults suffering from OCD, this indication represents a substantial market opportunity for BrainsWay.  As such, we expect the launch of Deep TMS for OCD to drive further revenue growth for the Company, and are already receiving significant interest from current and new customers in potentially adding our OCD helmet to their clinics.  With FDA clearances for Deep TMS in major depressive disorder (MDD), and now OCD, BrainsWay continues to strengthen its leadership position in the non-invasive treatment of common brain disorders, and we look forward to continuing to develop our innovative technology for additional psychiatric indications,” concluded Mr. Michlin.
