“Our first quarter of 2017 was highlighted by record first quarter revenue and expanded utilization of our Renaissance system installed base. Our revenue growth was driven by two factors. First, we supplied 12 Mazor X systems as we continued to process our 2016 year-end backlog. Second, we had record utilization by our installed base during the quarter. The enthusiasm for the Mazor X continues, and to date we have received four purchase orders for the Mazor X in the second quarter of 2017,” CEO Ori Hadomi said in a prepared statement.
Mazor said that during the quarter, it received purchase orders for 6 systems and ended the quarter with a backlog of 14 systems.
