Q1 2014: seventh consecutive quarterly doubling in SpineJack® sales

In € thousands

Q1 2014 Q1 2013 Delta
Sales 2,125 1,081 x2

Jérôme Marzinski, Deputy CEO of VEXIM, comments: "Germany's contribution, up sharply, to total sales, combined with the continued very high growth level in France, back our aggressive strategy aimed at ensuring the rapid adoption of the SpineJack® system in these key countries for VEXIM's development. This level of performance should spread to all other European countries in the coming months on the basis of a sales execution in line with our forecast action plan."

VEXIM recorded an excellent start to 2014, with 1st quarter sales doubling compared to last year to €2.0m. This was the seventh consecutive quarterly doubling in sales, which illustrates both the sturdiness of the direct sales model (90% of quarterly sales) and the high level of demand for the SpineJack® from surgeons, with 1,614 implants posed over the period. Almost 10,600 SpineJack® have thus been implanted by surgeons around the world since the product was first marketed to treat the various types of vertebral compression fractures.

This buoyant and continuous growth in sales is being observed in all of VEXIM's regions of activity, with momentum being particularly vigorous in France (x2.2 compared with Q1 2013) and Germany (x2.0 compared with Q1 2013).

Vincent Gardès, CEO of VEXIM, adds: "Since our IPO two years ago now, we have been scrupulously following our development strategy based on the direct deployment of our SpineJack® technology on high-potential markets. This further quarter of buoyant sales growth confirms the sturdiness of this business model and the appeal of the SpineJack® within the international spine surgeon community.

Furthermore, thanks to the CE Marking recently being extended to every type of vertebral compression fracture, even the most complex, we now have even greater growth potential that we intend to exploit to become the leader on the minimally-invasive back surgery market."

SpineJack®2, a revolutionary implant for treating Vertebral Compression Fractures

The revolutionary aspect of the SpineJack® lies in its ability to restore a fractured vertebra to its original shape, restore the spinal column's optimal anatomy and thus remove pain and enable the patient to recover their functional capabilities. Thanks to a specialized range of instruments, inserting the implants into the vertebra is carried out by mini-invasive surgery, guided by X-ray, in approximately 30 minutes, enabling the patient to be discharged shortly after surgery. The SpineJack® range consists of 3 titanium implants with 3 different diameters, thus covering 95% of vertebral compression fractures and all patient morphologies. SpineJack® technology benefits from the support of international scientific experts in the field of spine surgery and worldwide patent protection until 2029.
