Conference call to be held today, August 10, 2022, at 8:30 AM ET

BURLINGTON, Mass. and JERUSALEM, August 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BrainsWay Ltd. (NASDAQ & TASE: BWAY) (“BrainsWay” or the “Company”), a world leader in advanced and non-invasive treatment for brain disorders, today reported second quarter 2022 financial results and provided an operational update.

Recent Financial and Operational Highlights

  • For the three months ended June 30, 2022, revenues were $8.0 million, a 14% increase as compared to the prior year period.
  • As of June 30, 2022, BrainsWay’s Deep TMS™ installed base was 829 total systems, a 22% increase from the installed base at the same point in the prior year.
  • As of June 30, 2022, the Company had shipped 368 obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) coils as add-on helmets to certain of BrainsWay’s new and existing systems.
  • Cash, cash equivalents and short-term deposits as of June 30, 2022, amounted to $52.4 million, compared to $57.3 million as of December 31, 2021.
  • Announced that Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS), which covers 6.8 million members in the states of New York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Delaware, and is the fourth largest BCBS health plan in the U.S., issued a positive coverage policy applicable to the BrainsWay Deep TMS system for the treatment of OCD, effective May 2, 2022.
  • Israeli Ministry of Health approved coverage applicable to Deep TMS for the treatment of depression.

“We recorded solid second quarter results, again reflecting the growing demand for our non-invasive therapy in multiple indications and markets, despite certain macroeconomic challenges impacting existing and potential new customers,” stated Christopher von Jako, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of BrainsWay. “We generated $8.0 million in revenue for the second quarter of 2022, which represented a 14% increase as compared to the second quarter of 2021, our eighth consecutive quarter of year-over-year growth. These results are especially impressive as the team faced the realities of inflation and concerns over an economic recession in the U.S. from our customers and their patients.”

“We also continue to achieve important reimbursement progress, highlighted by the recent Highmark BCBS positive coverage policy in OCD that increased the total number of lives eligible for Deep TMS coverage in this indication to nearly 70 million.”

“Given the increasing demand for mental healthcare, we believe that Deep TMS is well positioned to grow versus other non-invasive medical technology and pharmaceutical therapy options. With approved indications for Depression (including Anxious Depression), OCD, and Smoking Addiction, and data from 34 randomized clinical trials, many of which were placebo controlled, no other TMS therapy can equal the depth of the clinical evidence reinforcing the significant benefits of our Deep TMS system,” concluded Dr. von Jako.

Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

  • Total revenues for the second quarter of 2022 were $8.0 million, compared to $7.0 million in the second quarter of 2021, an increase of 14%.
  • Gross margin for the second quarter of 2022 was 73%, compared to 81% for the second quarter 2021, largely attributable to expenses related to inventory obsolescence and a higher mix of international sales.
  • Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2022 totaled $7.8 million, compared to $7.2 million for the second quarter of 2021.
  • Operating loss for the second quarter of 2022 was $2.0 million, compared to a loss of $1.5 million for the same period in 2021.
