Vicarious Surgical Inc. (“Vicarious Surgical” or the “Company”) (NYSE: RBOT, RBOT WS), a next-generation robotics technology company seeking to improve patient outcomes as well as both the cost and efficiency of surgical procedures, today announced financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2023. Management will host a corresponding conference call at 4:30 p.m. ET today, November 13, 2023.

“The third quarter brought several successes for our business, but also introduced new challenges as we focused on the build and integration of our Version 1.0 System,” said Adam Sachs, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “While we were pleased with our ability to extend our cash runway through an equity follow-on offering and make meaningful progress on our individual sub-system builds, the impact from recent market-driven cost cutting initiatives combined with certain integration challenges have compelled us to revise our development schedule. We now expect to complete the Version 1.0 System build and integration during the Fall of 2024, and consequently anticipate a De Novo submission around early to mid 2026. Although there is still work ahead, we remain confident that our differentiated technology will allow us to revolutionize surgical robotics and transform the standard of care.”

  • Operating expenses were $21.4 million for the third quarter of 2023, compared to $22.2 million in the corresponding prior year period, a decrease of 4%.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to providing financial measurements that have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”), Vicarious Surgical provides additional financial metrics that are not prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP (“non-GAAP”). The non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release are Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted Net Loss Per Share (“Adjusted EPS”, and together with Adjusted Net Loss, “Non-GAAP Financial Measures”). The Company presents Non-GAAP Financial Measures in order to assist readers of its consolidated financial statements in understanding the core operating results that its management uses to evaluate the business and for financial planning purposes. Vicarious Surgical’s Non-GAAP financial measures provide an additional tool for investors to use in comparing its financial performance over multiple periods.

Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted EPS are key performance measures that Vicarious Surgical’s management uses to assess its operating performance. These Non-GAAP Financial Measures facilitate internal comparisons of Vicarious Surgical’s operating performance on a more consistent basis. Vicarious Surgical uses these performance measures for business planning purposes and forecasting. Vicarious Surgical believes that the Non-GAAP Financial Measures enhance an investor’s understanding of Vicarious Surgical’s financial performance as it is useful in assessing its operating performance from period-to-period, by excluding certain items that Vicarious Surgical believes are not representative of its core business.

The Non-GAAP Financials Measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because they may not calculate this measure in the same manner. Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted EPS are not prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and should not be considered in isolation of, or as an alternative to, measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. When evaluating Vicarious Surgical’s performance, you should consider the Non-GAAP Financial Measures alongside other financial performance measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, including net loss.

The Non-GAAP Financial Measures do not replace the presentation of Vicarious Surgical’s U.S. GAAP financial results and should only be used as a supplement to, not as a substitute for, Vicarious Surgical’s financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In this press release, Vicarious Surgical has provided a reconciliation of Adjusted Net Loss to net loss, the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure, and the calculation for Adjusted EPS.
