Axonics® Reports Third Quarter 2020 Results
Axonics generated net revenue of $35.2 million in the third quarter ended September 30, 2020
Over 5,500 patients have been implanted with the Axonics r-SNM System since U.S. commercial launch
IRVINE, CA – November 4, 2020 – Axonics Modulation Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AXNX), a medical technology company that has developed and is commercializing novel implantable sacral neuromodulation (SNM) devices for the treatment of urinary and bowel dysfunction, today reported results for the third quarter 2020.
Raymond W. Cohen, CEO of Axonics, said, “In the third quarter, despite headwinds from COVID-19 and the launch of a rechargeable device by our competitor, we continued to add new customers, sign additional hospital system agreements, gain regulatory approvals, and expand our growing body of clinical literature. Our strong revenue results reflect the close working relationships we have developed with implanting physicians, the successful launch of our second-generation implantable neurostimulator, and most importantly, the high satisfaction rates being reported by patients since our U.S. launch a year ago. It is our conviction that the SNM market is poised for significant market expansion and given the quality of our team and product pipeline, we are confident that Axonics is well positioned for continued growth in the years ahead.”
