Hallie Siegel’s insight:
"Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $4.5 million compared to $4.9 million in the year-ago first quarter. U.S. generated revenue decreased to $2.7 million compared to $3.6 million in the year-ago quarter, as the Company sold one Renaissance system in the U.S. market during the first quarter of 2015 compared to three systems sold in the 2014 first quarter. International revenue increased to $1.8 million from $1.3 million reported in the first quarter of 2014. The Company sold two Renaissance systems in the International market compared to two systems sold in the 2014 first quarter, demonstrating higher pricing due to a one-time direct sale in Taiwan. Revenue from system kit sales, services and other, increased to $2.7 million in the first quarter of 2015, representing a 35% increase compared to $2.0 million in the first quarter of 2014, mainly attributed to increased utilization of the Renaissance system.
Gross margin for three months ended March 31, 2015 was 75.7% compared to 78.9% in the year-ago quarter, due to lower system sales in the first quarter of 2015."
