LYON, France, March 30, 2021 -- EDAP TMS SA (Nasdaq: EDAP) (the “Company”), a global leader in robotic energy-based therapies, announced today unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter of 2020 and provided an update on strategic and operational developments. 

Marc Oczachowski, EDAP's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said: “During the fourth quarter and full year 2020, we made great strides toward our mission of becoming a leader in the field of high intensity focused ultrasound. We delivered sequential revenue growth each quarter of the year notwithstanding the impact of the pandemic. We ended on a high note by delivering 28% year-over-year total revenue growth and 51% year-over-year HIFU revenue growth during the quarter, and in the process welcomed University of California, San Francisco Medical Center (UCSF) and Cleveland Clinic to our growing roster of highly regarded Focal One customers. This success was driven not only by the growing recognition of Focal One as a new treatment paradigm in the non-invasive ablation of cancerous prostate tissue, but also our strategic licensing agreement with Exact Imaging, and its lead product Exact Vu, which provides us with a comprehensive urology solution.

“Notably, we achieved all of this while delivering operating profitability for both the fourth quarter and full year and ended the year with an increased cash position of EUR 24.7 million. I believe we are well positioned to continue this momentum through 2021.”
