Hyperfine Reports Preliminary Unaudited 2021 Revenue and Swoop® System Installations

Jan 10, 2022

GUILFORD, Conn., Jan. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hyperfine (Nasdaq: HYPR), the groundbreaking medical device company that created Swoop®, the world's first FDA-cleared portable MRI system™, today announced preliminary unaudited revenue for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2021.

Preliminary unaudited total revenue for the fourth quarter 2021 is expected to be approximately $0.362 to $0.437 million. Preliminary unaudited total revenue for the full year 2021 is expected to be approximately $1.42 to $1.50 million.   Additionally, the company realized a total of $0.81 million in grant funding for the fourth quarter of 2021 and a total of $1.45 million in grant funding for the full year 2021 as part of grant fulfillment for Swoop installations.

The Swoop total installed base consists of three components, discussed in further detail below: Commercial system installations (which make up total revenue), grant fulfillment installations, and research unit installations. The Swoop total installed base (or total installed units) is the number of Swoop devices deployed to hospitals, other healthcare providers, and research institutions. Hyperfine views the total installed base as a key metric of the growth of its business and is measured from period over period. Presented below is a breakout of total Swoop systems installed during 2020 and 2021:

  2020 2021   
    Q1Q2Q3Q4 TOTAL 
 Commercial System Installations4 5747 27

  4 79817 45 
 Research Units15 2233 25 
 Total Installed Units19 9111120 70 

  • Commercial system installations reflect device sales and subscription services through commercial agreements (commercial sales) or through research transfer agreements (RTA sales). Commercial sales are made to hospitals and other healthcare providers as direct sales of devices and software subscription services or through subscriptions for the use of the device and software. RTA sales represent the sale of Swoop units for research use purposes. Hyperfine’s revenue for the years ended December 31, 2021, and 2020 is derived from commercial sales and RTA sales.
  • Grant fulfillment installations consist of shipments of Swoop units to hospitals and other clinical facilities designated by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF). The corresponding funding for these installations from BMGF is recorded as a reduction in the research and development expenses when realized during the period.
  • Research units represent installed units, at no cost to the institutions, to expand clinical use cases. The installation of research units is recorded as a fixed asset with the related depreciation recorded as R&D expense over the life of the research unit.

“2021 was a transformational year for Hyperfine and a year of significant achievements in driving our clinical and value proposition forward while establishing strong early commercial traction,” said Dave Scott, president and chief executive officer. “We are pleased to have installed over 50 Swoop devices in 2021, our first full year of commercialization, against the challenges posed by a global pandemic. We see a substantial opportunity and strong growth trajectory ahead as we expand our sales force, build relationships with new partners and medical centers, and invest substantially in further applications of low-field, portable MRI to increase our impact for patients in need of medical imaging around the world. This is just the first step in our journey to democratize imaging, sensing, and ultimately guided intervention, and I am incredibly optimistic about our future.”
