Intuitive Surgical, Inc. Analyst Notes
On April 22, 2014, Intuitive Surgical Inc. (Intuitive Surgical) reported Q1 2014 financial results. The Company's revenues during the quarter fell 24.0% YoY to $464.7 million, weighed down mainly by sharp decline in Systems revenues. Systems revenue dropped to $106 million from $255.9 million in Q1 2013, as number of da Vinci surgical systems shipped fell sharply (87 in Q1 2014 as compared to 164 in Q1 2013). U.S. system shipments were down in the first quarter of 2014 as a result of lower procedure growth, changing hospital capital spending priorities associated with the implementation of the affordable Care Act, and the impact that anticipation of a new system may have had on customer capital-spending decisions, said the Company in a statement. The Company's net income during the quarter was $44.3 million, or $1.13 per diluted share, compared to $188.9 million, or $4.56 per diluted share, in Q1 2013.
