Senzime communicates strategic and financial goals
Senzime develops and markets digital patient monitoring systems to prevent complications during and after anesthesia. Senzime's TetraGraph system is currently CE marked, FDA cleared, and market approved, in additional countries such as Japan, South Korea and Australia. Since its launch in 2019, Senzime has delivered approximately 600 systems to hospitals worldwide. Despite limited access to hospitals during the COVID-19 pandemic, Senzime has had success in countries such as the United Kingdom, Switzerland and South Korea.
Sales have recently commenced on the Japanese market through Fukuda Denshi, a global medical equipment manufacturer, which has a ten-year license agreement to sell the TetraGraph system. Sales-related royalties will be received starting in October 2020. The Japanese Society of Anesthesiologists (JSA) recently published revised clinical guidelines with mandatory recommendations, in line with many other countries, to use neuromuscular monitoring whenever muscle relaxants and reversal drugs are used.
”We note a positive trend in the number of surgeries performed daily with each TetraGraph, which means that we have reviewed our internal calculation models for the disposable TetraSens electrodes. The recent order from South Korea is an example of such increased use,” says Pia Renaudin, Senzime’s CEO.
Every year, nearly 80 million surgeries are performed worldwide where neuromuscular blocking agents are used. Senzime estimates that the annual market potential for disposable sensors amounts to more than SEK 10 billion, and that the market for digital, objective monitors amounts annually to at least 25,000 units, corresponding to a value of more than SEK 600 million per year.
TetraGraph is now being delivered to several large markets, and therefore the Board considers it relevant to communicate Senzime’s financial goals:
- Senzime shall become a market leader in the peri- and post-operative neuromuscular monitoring segment, with a long-term global market share of at least 10%
- Senzime shall reach at least SEK 200 million in revenue in 2023, corresponding to a sales increase of 100% vs. 2022
- Senzime shall reach profitability during 2023
“We are building Sweden's next export success in medical technology and advanced patient monitoring. Senzime has all the prerequisites to become a leading player, with a billion SEK in sales, and today we announce transparent intermediate goals towards this long-term ambition. It is important that we communicate clearly to all external parties the goals that we are aiming for,” says Pia Renaudin, Senzime’s CEO.
