iCAD, Inc. (Nasdaq: ICAD), an industry-leading provider of advanced image analysis, workflow solutions and radiation therapy for the early identification and treatment of cancer, today reported financial results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012.
"During the fourth quarter we posted strong revenue growth, maintained adjusted EBITDA profitability and generated positive cash flow," said Ken Ferry, President and CEO of iCAD. "This considerable progress can be attributed to continued strong growth of our therapy solutions, a much stronger quarter in cancer detection coupled with on-going disciplined expense management. For the full year, therapy revenue was particularly strong as we more than doubled new systems and applicator sales compared with 2011."
"We were pleased that the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued an improved payment policy for the delivery of Intraoperative Radiation Therapy (IORT). The payment value assigned to IORT in the CMS Final Rule, announced in November 2012, was more than twice the value included in the Proposed Rule released by CMS in July 2012. We believe this favorable reimbursement policy, together with a growing body of clinical data, will accelerate the adoption of our technology by breast surgeons and radiation oncologists."
"Over the course of 2012, we made good progress transforming our Cancer Detection business model to a mix of new and recurring revenue products. At the same time, we reduced operating expenses significantly year over year while continuing to invest in key product programs for mammography and MRI," concluded Mr. Ferry.
