Louis Scafuri, Sofwave’s Chief Executive Officer

“Our impressive 2022 top-line results were led by strong performances in both North America and Asia. The robust and growing recurring revenue base that we have generated are indicative of Sofwave’s rapid penetration of the $2.3 billion total addressable energy based device skin tightening market. Importantly, we continue to expand our U.S. sales force, which will enable us to further leverage the multiple FDA cleared indications for our SUPERB technology. Additionally, our digital marketing consumer awareness efforts have helped to drive the demand for Sofwave  treatments as evidenced by our significant pulse sales growth in 2022. We have also expanded treatment indications in the period to include the short-term improvement in the appearance of cellulite, which represented a $1 billion dollar market globally in 2021 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 11% through 2030.

Outside the U.S., we gained regulatory clearances in key international markets, including Taiwan, Brazil and Mexico. Moreover, our collaboration and distribution agreement with HTDK Group, which is wholly owned by Warburg Pincus, is an important step for Sofwave to leverage the rapidly growing $29 billion aesthetic medicine market in China. As global market conditions continue to be favorable, we see demand for our Sofwave treatments increase and are well-positioned for meaningful further growth. Of significance, COVID restrictions having substantially eased in Asia and are improving market accessibility across this critical geography”

Dr. Shimon Eckhouse, Chairman and co-founder

“The proprietary ultrasound technology developed by SofWave offers patients a superior, non-invasive and highly effective solution for wrinkle treatment, lifting of eyebrows and neck area and treatment of cellulite. Our ability to treat these very common and aesthetically disturbing conditions by inducing growth of new collagen and elastin in the skin without any damage to the upper layers of the skin are a key factor in the growth in our pulse revenue, which is supported by over 100,000 commercial treatments performed using our SUPERB technology.  Sofwave continues to invest in generating an industry-leading trove of clinical data demonstrating the efficacy, patient safety and comfort of our device as compared to conventional invasive and non-invasive solutions. We also remain focused on building the IP around our innovative solutions and were pleased to receive approval for our first U.S. patent in 2022, which protects key features of SUPERB’s ultrasound  and cooling technology.”
