Conference call to be held today, March 9, 2022, at 8:30 AM ET
BURLINGTON, Mass. and JERUSALEM, March 9, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – BrainsWay Ltd. (NASDAQ & TASE: BWAY) (“BrainsWay” or the “Company”), a global leader in advanced noninvasive neurostimulation treatments for mental health disorders, today reported fourth quarter and full year 2021 financial results and provided an operational update.
Recent Financial and Operational Highlights
“Our fourth quarter revenues reflect the continued solid execution by our team,” stated Christopher von Jako, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of BrainsWay. “We generated $29.7 million in revenue for full-year 2021, which represented a 34% increase over full-year 2020. Moreover, demand for our Deep TMS therapy in multiple indications led to a strong close to the year, as we generated $8.5 million in revenue for the fourth quarter of 2021 – a robust 20% increase over our fourth quarter 2020. This is particularly noteworthy given the recent Omicron surge, and we have now demonstrated year-over-year growth in six consecutive quarters. We anticipate that the current positive operating trends that drove our significant momentum in 2021, highlighted by recent achievements on the commercial, clinical, regulatory, and reimbursement fronts, will lead to further growth for BrainsWay in 2022 and beyond.”
“Importantly, we continue to achieve important progress in securing reimbursement for Deep TMS in OCD,” continued Dr. von Jako. “Our most recent achievement in this arena was the final LCD issued by the Palmetto GBA MAC, which covers over 20% of the Medicare population and now brings the total number of covered lives eligible for Deep TMS OCD coverage to approximately 60 million. We also continue to publish compelling data on Deep TMS in multiple key areas, with our most recent publications highlighting our innovative technology in alcohol use disorder, OCD, and anxious depression.”
