Axonics® Reports Fourth Quarter and
Fiscal Year 2020 Results
IRVINE, Calif – February 25, 2021 – 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 fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2020.
Raymond W. Cohen, Axonics CEO, said, “In the first year of Axonics’ commercial launch in the United States, we exceeded our ambitious goals despite the pandemic and only having approximately ten months of selling time. We are grateful for the overwhelmingly positive response from physicians and patients to the introduction of our r-SNM System. We look forward to more Americans getting vaccinated and a return to a more normalized elective procedure environment in which we can take full advantage of the strong growth outlook for Axonics and the SNM market.”
Fourth Quarter 2020 Financial Results
•Net revenue was $34.8 million in the fourth quarter 2020, as compared to net revenue of $9.9 million for the same period of the prior year. Net revenue was consistent with the preliminary revenue result Axonics previously reported in January.
