Admedus Ltd (ASX:AHZ) has delivered revenue of $25.6 million for the financial year ending December 31, 2018, up 20% year-on-year versus the total group revenue of $21.4 million in 2017.

In December 2017 Admedus changed its financial year-end from June 30 to December 31 to align the company’s financial reporting with its global business sales cycle.

Most of the revenue growth was driven by ADAPT technology sales, which is used to repair congenital heart deformities and more complex heart defects.

ADAPT sales grew 55% year-on-year to $11.1 million compared to $7.2 million in 2017.

The increase was driven by sales in North America, which is the first market where the expanded 3D product range including CardioCel, CardioCel Neo and VascuCel launched last year.

Admedus managing director and chief executive officer Wayne Paterson said: “The developments over the past year form a solid basis for a sustainable global business.

“ADAPT revenue growth was 55% over the previous year which is significantly higher than cost growth.

“Uptake throughout 2018 continued to increase, as more key opinion leaders and surgeons have started to use or increased their utilisation of ADAPT treated products.

“The company continues to take market share away from large and more established competitors via superior clinical data, increasing KOL advocacy and an expanding portfolio of unique products.”

Net loss after tax was marked at $24.7 million and the closing cash balance on December 31, 2018, was $12 million, up from $8.3 million on December 31, 2017.
