LOS GATOS, CA / ACCESSWIRE / May 9, 2023 / Tenon Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ:TNON) ("Tenon Medical" or the "Company"), a company that has transformative care for patients suffering with certain sacroiliac disorders, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023.

First Quarter 2023 Highlights

  • Revenue of $433,000 in the first quarter of 2023, a 510% increase over the prior year quarter, and up 56% on a sequential basis compared to the fourth quarter 2022
  • 34 physicians have completed a Catamaran workshop during Q1 2023
  • CMS final rule effective January 1, 2023, for code 27279 increases 2023 Medicare facility fee by approximately 26% for SI joint fusion procedures performed in ASCs and 33% for these procedures done in hospital outpatient settings

"The first quarter of 2023 was highlighted by ongoing revenue growth from a significant increase in surgical procedures in which the Catamaran System was used," said Steve Foster, CEO and President of Tenon Medical. "We remain highly focused on continuing to build our commercial infrastructure and sales management team, which produced 510% growth year over year, and 56% growth sequentially, in the first quarter. Our go-to-market strategy is delivering these results by targeting physicians who have been trained on SI procedures or have significant experience with SI surgical technologies utilizing area sales managers, clinical specialists, and independent distributors, and conducting local training workshop programs. During Q1 we hosted 34 physicians in Catamaran workshops to learn more about how the implant transfixes and stabilizes the SI joint, as well as why the inferior-posterior approach is an optimal entry point.

"In summary, we began 2023 well-positioned to build revenue and growth with the Catamaran which is FDA cleared and reimbursement secured. We are now beginning to see the revenue ramp from our commercialization to a large market with accelerating recognition in the physician community. We are also reinforcing our commitment to validating and differentiating patient outcomes and radiographic assessment with the Catamaran System with ongoing post market clinical studies. Looking ahead, we believe we can continue our momentum with a diligent focus on sales and outreach through education and workshop events, and building long-term value for our shareholders," concluded Foster.

First Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Revenue was $433,000 in the first quarter of 2023, an increase of 510%, compared to $71,000 in the comparable year ago period. The increase in revenue in the first quarter was primarily due to an increase of 489% in the number of surgical procedures in which the Catamaran System was used.

Gross loss in the three months ended March 31, 2023, was $(47,000) compared to a gross loss of ($204,000) in the comparable year ago quarter. Gross margin percentage was (11)% in the first quarter of 2023 and (287)% in the quarter ended March 31, 2022. Gross margin percentage improved due to higher revenue associated with the increase in the number of surgical procedures.

Operating losses totaled $4.9 million for the first quarter of 2023, compared to a loss of $2.1 million in the first quarter 2022. Increases in operating expenses were a result of an increase in stock-based compensation, increases in sales and marketing and general expenses as the Company builds its sales function and infrastructure to support future growth.

Net loss was $4.8 million for the first quarter of 2023, compared to a loss of $2.4 million in the same period of 2022. The Company expects to incur additional losses in the future.

As of March 31, 2023, cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments totaled $4.9 million, as compared to $8.6 million as of December 31, 2022. As of March 31, 2023, we had no outstanding debt.

Second Quarter Outlook

Based on the first quarter 2023 results, the Company expects to produce a positive gross margin for second quarter 2023.

About Tenon Medical, Inc.

Tenon Medical, Inc., a medical device company formed in 2012, has developed The Catamaran™ SI Joint Fusion System that offers a novel, less invasive Inferior-Posterior approach to the SI joint using a single, robust titanium implant. The system features the Catamaran™ Fixation Device which passes through both the axial and sagittal planes of the ilium and sacrum, transfixing the SI joint along its longitudinal axis. With an entry that mimics SI joint injection, the surgical approach is direct to the joint and inferior to the wide and variable dorsal recess. The angle and trajectory of the Inferior-Posterior approach is designed to provide a pathway away from critical neural and vascular structures and into the strongest cortical bone. Tenon is preparing a national launch of this system to address the greatly underserved market opportunity that exists in this space. For more information, please visit
