EOS imaging posted 2012 revenues of €9.42 million, up 36% over 2011, driven by the sale of 21 EOS® systems,compared to 16 systems in 2011, and related revenue from maintenance.
In 2012, the Company also received public financing of €0.97 million recorded under "Other income," including a research tax credit.

Marie Meynadier, CEO of EOS imaging, said: "2012 was an important year for the company, which saw EOS adopted in four of the top seven US orthopaedic hospitals and new EOS systems introduced in Asia Pacific, Turkey, Italy and Scandinavia. Our February 2012 IPO gave us major financial resources, allowing us to make controlled commercial investments to bolster growth in 2013 and beyond. With regard to earnings, strict cost control in 2012 has resulted in a comfortable level of cash, which we expect to support continued growth as we drive towards profitability."
