Conformis (CFMS) to Post Q3 Earnings: What's in the Offing?

Conformis, Inc. CFMS is scheduled to release third-quarter 2021 results on Nov 3, after the market closes. In the last reported quarter, the company delivered an earnings surprise of 162.5%. It beat estimates in three of the trailing four quarters and missed once, the average surprise being 50.6%.

Q3 Estimates

Currently, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for third-quarter revenues is pegged at $14.1 million, suggesting a decline of 12.7% from the year-ago reported figure. The consensus mark for the bottom line stands at a loss of 7 cents.

Factors to Note

Conformis is likely to have witnessed revenue growth in the third quarter backed by improved procedural levels.

Apart from this, the company saw sequential improvement in its core products (beneficial for its expanded product portfolio) in the second quarter of 2021 and this momentum is likely to have continued in the to-be-reported quarter as well.

In the second quarter, Conformis Hip System revenues witnessed significant growth, with sustained interest from current and new surgeons for its Cordera Match Hip System. The new system has been built to offer flexibility to surgeons by allowing both anterior and posterior surgical approach. Hence, Conformis Hip System third-quarter revenues are likely to reflect gains from the improving trend and new system.

In September, the company announced solid and encouraging results of a published retrospective study of procedures utilizing Conformis’ patient-specific iTotal CR (cruciate-retaining) knee replacement implant that assessed implant survivorship, patient satisfaction, and functional outcomes.

In August, Conformis announced the first procedure that was performed utilizing the Identity Imprint knee replacement system (received regulatory clearance in May).

These developments are likely to have positively impacted the company’s performance in the third quarter.
