Ekso Bionics Holdings Inc.'s fourth quarter of 2023 financial results were in line with estimates, according to H.C. Wainwright & Co.

Ekso Bionics Holdings Inc. (OTCBB:EKSO) fourth quarter of 2023 (Q423) financial results were in line with estimates, according to H.C. Wainwright & Co. analyst Dr. Swayampakula Ramakanth in a March 5 research note, stating in the report that this positive trend in revenue was expected to continue.

US$4.8 million was reported as revenue, and US$0.22 net loss per share, which Ramakanth compared to the consensus estimate of US$0.11 per share net loss.

Ramakanth noted that "Ekso ended 2023 with cash and cash equivalents of US$8.6M and raised US$3.9M in net proceeds from a secondary offering in
early January, which we believe is sufficient to fund operations through 2024."

With this, Ramakanth updated their model to reflect the financials, projecting US$23.5 million in total revenue, a net loss of US$0.49 per share. 

Revenue Growth of 36%

In the report, Ramakanth reported that during Q423, Ekso saw an increase in revenue of 36%. They believed that this increase was caused by a surplus in the placement of ExoNR and Indego devices.

Ekso Bionics' management disclosed that they had booked 38 EksoHealth units, bringing the total number of units placed in 2023 to 151. Throughout the year, the company reported ongoing efforts to strengthen its partnerships with integrated delivery networks (IDNs) and expand its market presence in Europe, the Middle East, Africa (EMEA), and Asia-Pacific (APAC) regions. The continued success in securing multi-unit orders and renewals is expected to drive sustained growth for Ekso Bionics in 2024 and the coming years.

Final CMS Reimbursement

The report stated that Ekso Bionics is currently waiting for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to determine the final reimbursement price for its Indego Personal device. CMS had initially proposed a reimbursement price of US$94,617, which was expected to be revised or finalized in February and take effect on April 1.

However, CMS has postponed its decision and requested that Ekso Bionics provide additional commercial data to support the determination of the final reimbursement price. In the absence of a finalized reimbursement price, CMS may choose to handle claims submitted by Ekso Bionics on an individual basis.


In the research note, Ramakanth reiterated their Buy rating on the stock. However, they lowered their target price on the company from US$10 to US$9.25 per share, saying this was "based on the average of three valuation methods, assuming a 11% discount rate: (1) an NPV analysis of projected future revenues through 2030 with a 0% terminal growth rate; (2) an EV/sales analysis using a 5.0x multiple on projected 2030 sales; and (3) a price/earnings analysis using a 20x multiple on projected 2030 earnings." Through this, they came to a target price of US$9.27, which was then rounded down to US$9.25.
