Axonics® Reports Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

November 4, 2021 GMT

IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 4, 2021--

Axonics, Inc. (Nasdaq: AXNX), a global medical technology company that is developing and commercializing novel products for the treatment of bladder and bowel dysfunction, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

“We are pleased with this quarter’s revenue result considering the significant impact the surge in Covid-19 Delta variant cases had on elective procedure volumes in August and September, in addition to staffing shortages at hospitals and seasonality from summer vacations,” said Raymond W. Cohen, chief executive officer of Axonics. “Bulkamid ® posted its highest revenue quarter to date and has proven to be more insulated from Covid-19 impact due to physicians having the option to perform the procedure in their offices.”

Cohen continued, “Over the last four months, we have had the pleasure of hosting 325 physicians at six regional seminars to introduce Bulkamid and provide proctored wet lab training. The programs also provided us with an opportunity to introduce our sacral neuromodulation system to physicians who are less familiar with Axonics and have them hear firsthand from their peers who have already experienced the difference of working with Axonics. The overwhelmingly positive feedback from physicians at these seminars reinforces our confidence that the SNM market will grow considerably once Covid-19 subsides and that Axonics’ best-in-class incontinence solutions will drive durable growth for years to come.”
