Annual Report


Except for the historical information contained herein, the matters discussed in this "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations," and elsewhere in this Form 10-K are forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. These forward-looking statements include, among others, statements regarding our strategies and expectations regarding, our future revenues, cost of revenues and other expenses and losses. The factors listed in Item 1A "Risk Factors," as well as any cautionary language in this Form 10-K, provide examples of risks, uncertainties and events that may cause our actual results to differ materially from those projected. Except as may be required by law, we undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect events after the date of this report.


The following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and the related notes thereto included elsewhere in this annual report on Form 10-K.

We develop, manufacture and sell a new generation of medical robotics designed for accurate positioning, manipulation and stable control of catheters and catheter-based technologies. Our Sensei® Robotic Catheter System, or Sensei system, is designed to allow physicians to instinctively navigate flexible catheters with solid stability and control in electrophysiology procedures. Our Magellan™ Robotic System is designed to allow physicians to instinctively navigate flexible catheters in the vasculature. We believe our systems and the corresponding disposable catheters will enable physicians to perform procedures that historically have been too difficult or time consuming to accomplish routinely with manually-controlled, hand-held catheters and catheter-based technologies, or that we believe could be accomplished only by the most skilled physicians. We believe that our systems have the potential to benefit patients, physicians, hospitals and third-party payors by improving outcomes and permitting complex procedures to be performed interventionally.

From inception to December 31, 2013, we have incurred losses totaling approximately $352.7 million and have not generated positive cash flows from operations. We expect such losses to continue through at least the year ended December 31, 2014 as we continue to commercialize our technologies and develop new applications and products. We have financed our operations primarily through the sale of public and private equity securities, the issuance of debt, partnering and the licensing of intellectual property.

We market our products in the United States primarily through a direct sales force of regional sales employees, supported by clinical account managers who provide training, clinical support and other services to our customers. Outside the United States, we use a combination of a direct sales force and distributors to market, sell and support our products.

Critical Accounting Policies, Estimates and Judgments

We prepare our consolidated financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. In doing so, we have to make estimates and assumptions that affect our reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, as well as related disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities. In many cases, we could reasonably have used different accounting policies and estimates. In some cases, changes in the accounting estimates are reasonably likely to occur from period to period. Accordingly, actual results could differ materially from our estimates. We base our estimates on our past experience and on other assumptions that we believe are reasonable under the circumstances, and we evaluate these estimates on an ongoing basis. To the extent that there are material differences between these estimates and actual results, our financial condition or results of operations will be affected.

Table of Contents

While our significant accounting policies are fully described in Note 2 to our Consolidated Financial Statements included in Part II, Item 8 of this Annual Report on Form 10-K, we believe that the following accounting policies and estimates are most critical to a full understanding and evaluation of our reported financial results.

Revenue Recognition

Our revenues are primarily derived from the sale of the Sensei system and the Magellan Robotic System and the associated catheters as well as the sale of customer service contracts. Under our revenue recognition policy, revenues are recognized when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery to the customer has occurred or the services have been fully rendered, the sales price is fixed or determinable and collectability is probable.

• Persuasive Evidence of an Arrangement. Persuasive evidence of an arrangement for sales of systems is generally determined by a sales contract signed and dated by both the customer and us, including approved terms and conditions and the receipt of an approved purchase order. Evidence of an arrangement for the sale of disposable products is determined through an approved purchase order from the customer. Evidence of an arrangement for the sale of post-contract customer service is determined through either a signed sales contract or an approved purchase order from the customer. Sales to customers are generally not subject to any acceptance, performance, cancellation, termination or return rights.

• Delivery.

• Systems and Disposable Products. Typically, ownership of systems, catheters and other disposable products passes to customers upon shipment, at which time delivery is deemed to be complete.

• Customer Service Revenue. We recognize customer service revenue from the sale of product maintenance plans. Revenue from customer services, whether sold individually or as a separate unit of accounting in a multi-element arrangement, is deferred and amortized over the service period, which is typically one year.

• Multiple-element Arrangements. It is common for the sale of Sensei and Magellan systems to include multiple elements which qualify as separate units of accounting. These elements commonly include the sale of the system and a product maintenance plan, in addition to installation of the system and initial training. Less commonly, these elements may include the sale of certain disposable products or other elements. Generally, under multiple-element arrangements, the systems are delivered at the beginning of the arrangement and the related revenue is recognized at that time. Installation and training is generally completed within 90 days at which time the revenue is recognized. Customer service revenue associated with the product maintenance plan is recognized ratably over the service period, which is typically one year. Other elements are recognized once delivered in accordance with contract terms. In arrangements that include multiple elements, we allocate revenue to the various elements based on vendor-specific objective evidence of fair value ("VSOE") of the elements if VSOE exists. VSOE for each element is based on the price for which the item is sold separately, determined based on historical evidence of stand-alone sales of these elements or stated renewal rates for the element. If VSOE does not exist for an element, we allocate revenue based on third-party evidence ("TPE") of selling price for the elements if TPE exists. TPE is the price of our or any competitor's largely interchangeable products or services in standalone sales to similarly-situated customers. If neither VSOE nor TPE exist for a specific element, we allocate revenue to the various elements based on our best estimate of the selling price for that element or estimated selling price ("ESP") using a top-down approach, which takes into account our target prices and overall pricing objectives. In situations where we have delivered certain elements but not delivered other elements, we defer

Table of Contents
revenue for the undelivered elements after we have allocated revenue to the various elements under the relative selling price method based on VSOE, TPE or ESP, defers revenue for the undelivered elements. Because we have neither VSOE nor TPE for our systems, the allocation of revenue is based on ESP for the systems sold. We determine ESP for our systems by considering multiple factors, including, but not limited to, features and functionality of the system, geographies, type of customer, and market conditions. We regularly review ESP and maintain internal controls over the establishment and updates of these estimates.

• Sales Price Fixed or Determinable. We assess whether the sales price is fixed or determinable at the time of the transaction. Sales prices are documented in the executed sales contract or purchase order received prior to shipment. Our standard terms do not allow for contingencies, such as trial or evaluation periods, refundable orders, payments contingent upon the customer obtaining financing or other contingencies which would impact the customer's obligation. In situations where these or other contingencies are included, all related revenue is deferred until the contingency is resolved. In the third quarter of 2012, we began shipping systems under a limited commercial evaluation program to allow certain strategic accounts to install and utilize systems for a limited trial period while the purchase opportunity is being evaluated by the hospital. Systems under this program remain our property and are recorded in inventory and a sale only occurs upon the issuance of a purchase order from the customer.

• Collectability. We assess whether collection is probable based on a number of factors, including the customer's past transaction history and credit worthiness. If collection of the sales price is not deemed probable, the revenue is deferred and recognized at the time collection becomes probable, which is usually upon receipt of cash. Our sales contracts generally do not allow the customer the right of cancellation, refund or return, except as provided under our standard warranty. If such rights were allowed, all related revenues would be deferred until such rights expired.

Significant management judgments and estimates are made in connection with the determination of revenue to be recognized and the period in which it is recognized. If different judgments and estimates were utilized, the amount of revenue to be recognized and the period in which it is recognized could differ materially from the amounts reported.

Short-Term Investments

We determine the appropriate classification of investments at the time of purchase and evaluate such designation as of each balance sheet date. We classify all investments with maturities greater than three months at the time of purchase as short-term investments as they are subject to use within one year in current operations. We make investments based on specific guidelines approved by our board of directors with a view to liquidity and capital preservation and regularly review our investments for performance. As of December, 31, 2013, all our investments have been classified as available-for-sale and are carried on the balance sheet at fair value with unrealized gains and losses, if any, included in other comprehensive income within stockholders' equity. Any unrealized losses which are determined to be other than temporary will be included in earnings. Realized gains and losses are recognized on the specific identification method.

We periodically evaluate our investments for impairment. In the event that the carrying value of an investment exceeds its fair value and the decline in fair value is determined to be other than temporary, an impairment charge is recorded and a new cost basis for the investment is established. In order to determine whether a decline in value is other than temporary, we evaluate many factors, including the following: the duration and extent to which the fair value has been less than the carrying value; our financial condition and business outlook, including key operational and cash flow metrics, current market conditions and future trends in the industry; and our intent and ability to retain the investment for a period of time sufficient to allow for any anticipated recovery in fair value. During the third quarter of 2010, we determined that the impairment of our investment in Luna Innovations, Incorporated common stock was other than temporary. As such, we permanently wrote down the value of that investment and recorded a loss of $1.9 million in other expense on the consolidated

Table of Contents

statement of operations. In the fourth quarter of 2011, we further permanently wrote down the value of the Luna investment and recorded an additional loss of $0.3 million in other expense on the consolidated statement of operations. In the first quarter of 2013, the Company recorded an additional write down of the investment and recorded an additional loss of $0.6 million in other expense on the condensed consolidated statement of operations. Significant management judgment is required in determining whether an other-than-temporary decline in the fair value of an investment exists. Changes in our assessment of the valuation of our investments could materially impact our future operating results and financial position.


Inventory, which includes material, labor and overhead costs is stated at standard cost, which approximates actual cost, determined on a first-in, first-out basis, not in excess of market value. We record reserves, when necessary, to reduce the carrying value of excess or obsolete inventories to their net realizable value. These reserves are based on our best estimates after considering projected future demand. In the event that actual demand for our inventory differs from our best estimates or we fail to receive the necessary regulatory approvals, increases to inventory reserves may become necessary.

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

We evaluate the recoverability of our long-lived assets in accordance with authoritative accounting guidance. When events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value of long-lived assets may not be recoverable, we recognize such impairment if the net book value of such assets exceeds the future undiscounted cash flows attributable to such assets. Should an impairment exist, the impairment loss would be measured based on the excess carrying value of the asset over the asset's fair value or discounted estimates of future cash flows attributable to the assets. As of December 31, 2013, we had $3.6 million of property and equipment, net. If estimates or the related assumptions change in the future, we may record impairment charges to reduce the carrying value of certain groups of these assets. Changes in the valuation of long-lived assets could materially impact our operating results and financial position.

Stock-Based Compensation

Under the fair value recognition provisions of authoritative guidance related to stock-based compensation, stock-based payment expense is estimated at the grant date based on the fair value of the award and is recognized as expense ratably over the requisite service period of the award. The recording of compensation expense related to stock-based awards is significant to our financial statements but does not result in the payment of cash by us. Determining the appropriate fair value model used to calculate the fair value of stock-based awards requires significant management judgment. Additionally, the calculation of the fair value of stock-based awards requires us to make significant estimates and judgments, including the expected volatility, the expected term of the award, risk-free interest rate and dividend yield. If we had chosen a different fair value model or made different estimates in the calculation of fair value, the amount or timing of stock-based compensation recorded could have differed materially from the amounts reported.

We have selected the Black-Scholes option valuation model as the most appropriate method for determining the estimated fair value for our stock-based awards. The Black-Scholes model requires the use of highly subjective and complex assumptions in determining the fair value of stock-based awards, including the expected volatility of the underlying stock, expected term, risk-free interest rate and the dividend yield.

• Expected Volatility. Our estimate of volatility is based on the historical volatilities of our stock price.

• Expected Term. We estimate the expected term based on our historical settlement experience related to vesting and contractual terms while giving consideration to awards that have life cycles less than the contractual terms and vesting schedules in accordance with authoritative guidance.

Table of Contents
• Risk-Free Interest Rate. The risk-free interest rate that we use in the Black-Scholes option valuation model is the implied yield in effect at the time of option grant based on U.S. Treasury zero-coupon issues with a remaining term equivalent to the expected term of our option grants. For ESPP grants, we use the 6-month Constant Maturity Treasury ("CMT") rate.

• Dividend Yield. We have never paid any cash dividends on our common stock and we do not anticipate paying any cash dividends in the foreseeable future. Consequently, we use a dividend yield of zero in the Black-Scholes option valuation model.

In addition to the Black-Scholes assumptions noted above, we also estimate a forfeiture rate for our stock-based awards. We estimate our forfeiture rate based on an analysis of our actual forfeitures based on actual forfeiture experience, analysis of employee turnover behavior and other factors. The impact from any forfeiture rate adjustment would be recognized in full in the period of adjustment and if the actual number of future forfeitures differs from our estimates, we might be required to record adjustments to stock-based compensation in future periods.

To the extent that future evidence regarding these variables is available and provides estimates that we determine are more indicative of actual trends, we may refine or change our approach to deriving these input estimates. These changes could significantly impact the stock-based compensation expense recorded in the future.

Loss Contingencies

We evaluate potential loss contingencies as circumstances dictate. Should a specific loss contingency meet the definition of a liability under authoritative accounting guidance, we would record a loss and a liability. As of December 31, 2013, we had not recorded any loss contingencies as liabilities. However, if estimates and assumptions change in the future, we may record charges to our financial statements. This could materially impact our operating results and financial position.

Net Operating Loss Carryforwards

We make certain judgments and estimates in determining and valuing deferred tax assets. These judgments arise from differences in timing of recognizing certain expenses for tax purposes and in the calculation of credit and net operating loss carryforwards.

At December 31, 2013, we had federal and state net operating loss carryforwards of approximately $242.0 million and $205.3 million, respectively. At December 31, 2012, we had federal and state net operating loss carryforwards of approximately $195.1 million and $169.0 million, respectively. These net operating loss carryforwards will expire in varying amounts from 2014 through 2033 if not utilized. We maintained a full valuation allowance against our deferred tax asset totaling $130.4 million and $109.0 million at December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. The determination to maintain an allowance is highly subjective. The factors we considered in making this determination include, but are not limited to (i) our historical cumulative net losses, after adjustment for permanent tax differences, over the previous three years through 2013; (ii) our dependence on continued high growth rates in achieving forecasted profitability; (iii) operation in an industry subject to rapid technological changes; and (iv) the unknown impact of current negative macroeconomic factors on our forecasted results of operations. Based on our consideration of these factors, we believe there is sufficient uncertainty regarding our ability to generate future taxable income. We will retain a full valuation allowance until such time that we determine it is more likely than not that we will recognize the benefit of the deferred tax assets. Throughout 2014, we will continually evaluate these, and other, factors, and the impact any changes in these factors has on our judgment regarding the realization of the deferred tax assets.

Sections 382 and 383 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, provide for annual limitations on the utilization of net operating loss and research and experimentation credit carryforwards if we were to undergo

an ownership change, as defined in Section 382. As the result of the sale of 11,700,000 shares of common stock in April 2009, the sale of 16,100,000 shares of common stock in April 2010, the sale of 4,785,000 shares of common stock in November 2011, the sale of 5,291,000 shares of common stock in October 2012 and the August 2013 sale of 28,455,284 shares of common stock and warrants to purchase an aggregate of 34,146,339 shares of common stock, such an ownership change may have occurred. Accordingly, our utilization of net operating loss and credit carryforwards which existed at that time could be limited. We have not completed a study to assess whether an ownership change has occurred or whether there have been multiple ownership changes since we became a "loss corporation" under the Code. We have evaluated and will continue to evaluate alternative analyses permitted under Section 382 and IRS notices to determine whether or not any ownership changes have occurred and may occur (and if so, when they occurred) that would result in limitations on our NOLs or certain other tax attributes.

Financial Overview


Our product revenues primarily consist of sales of Magellan Robotic and Sensei systems, catheters and other disposables. Our service revenue primarily consists of system service and customer training, which are typically entered into at the time systems are sold. These service contracts have been generally renewed at the end of the service period. In the third quarter of 2012, we began shipping systems under a limited commercial evaluation program to allow certain strategic accounts to install and utilize systems for a limited trial period while the purchase opportunity is being evaluated by the hospital. Systems under this program remain our property and are recorded in inventory and a sale only occurs upon the issuance of a purchase order from the customer. Customers with evaluation systems must purchase catheters from us, which catheters are required for the use of our systems.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues consists primarily of materials, direct labor, depreciation, overhead costs associated with manufacturing, training and installation costs, royalties, provisions for inventory valuation, warranty expenses and the cost associated with our post-contract customer service.

Research and Development Expenses

Our research and development expenses primarily consist of engineering, software development, product development, quality assurance and clinical and regulatory expenses, including costs to develop our Sensei system, Magellan Robotic System and their respective disposable catheters. Research and development expenses include employee compensation, including stock-based compensation expense, consulting services, outside services, materials, supplies, depreciation and travel. We expense research and development costs as they are incurred.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

Our selling, general and administrative expenses consist primarily of compensation for executive, finance, sales, legal and administrative personnel, including sales commissions and stock-based compensation. Other significant expenses include costs associated with attending medical conferences, professional fees for legal services (including legal services associated with our efforts to obtain and maintain broad protection for the intellectual property related to our products) and accounting services, consulting fees and travel expenses.

Gain on Licensing of Intellectual Property

Gain on licensing of intellectual property consists of licensing fees received in connection with our updated license agreement with Intuitive Surgical.

Table of Contents

Gain on Sale of Intellectual Property

Gain on sale of intellectual property consists of amounts received in exchange for patent and technology license, sublicense and purchase agreements with Philips to allow them to develop and commercialize the non-robotic applications of the FOSSL technology in the non-robotic vascular, endoluminal and orthopedic fields.

Loss on Settlement of Litigation

On May 9, 2013, we and the plaintiff parties entered into a stipulation of settlement in the matter Curry v. Hansen Medical, Inc. et al., Case No. 09-05094 and consolidated actions, pursuant to which the plaintiffs receive an aggregate of $8.5 million, $4.0 million of which was funded in cash by our insurer and other sources. We funded the remaining portion by issuing $4.25 million worth of our common stock, and paying $250,000 in cash. We recorded a loss on litigation settlement of $4.5 million in first quarter of 2013.

Loss on Extinguishment of Debt

In the third quarter of 2013 we fully repaid and extinguished our previous loan obligation to Oxford Finance LLC and Silicon Valley Bank. In connection with the early repayment of debt, we incurred a loss on extinguishment of $1.9 million that primarily included a prepayment penalty of $0.9 million, an additional end of term payment of $0.5 million and a write-off of the unamortized discount from warrants and capitalized issuance costs of $0.5 million.

Stock-Based Compensation Expense

Cost of revenues, research and development and selling, general and
administrative expense included stock-based compensation expense for stock-based
awards as follows (in thousands):

                                                          Year ended
                                                         December 31,
                                                 2013        2012        2011
          Cost of revenues                      $   402     $   319     $   805
          Research and development                1,320         444       1,703
          Selling, general and administrative     3,167       2,119       4,168

          Total                                 $ 4,889     $ 2,882     $ 6,676

Total stock-based compensation for 2012 includes a $740,000 reduction in expense recorded in the first quarter of 2012 resulting from an out of period adjustment related to compensation recorded in 2011 and prior periods for our employee stock purchase plan. This out of period correction is not material to 2012 or to prior periods. Net of this adjustment, the increase in stock-based compensation in 2013 compared to 2012 was primarily due to the impact of the Company's new equity awards granted.
