Senseonics develops and commercializes these CGMs in the U.S., Middle East, Europe, and Africa. Its main products are Eversense and Eversense XL, which are implantable CGM systems. These systems allow patients to measure glucose levels with a smart transmitter, under-skin sensor, and an app for real-time data.
On November 9th, Senseonics reported its financial results for the third quarter of 2021. The company’s revenue during this period was $3.5 million. This was a massive increase over the $0.8 million it reported during the same period in 2020. This increase took place as a result of commercial responsibility for Eversense shifting to Ascensia and its orders for distribution in the E.U. and U.S. Currently, the company’s Eversense 180-day PMA supplement application is still in motion with the FDA.
“We are encouraged by the excitement demonstrated by patients and HCPs for the 180-day sensor in the US and we are pleased with the progression of the review and are hopeful the FDA will reach an approval decision in the coming months based on the positive PROMISE Study results. We look forward to launching the new system shortly after approval.”The President and CEO of Senseonics, Tim Goodnow, Ph.D.
Following the release of these financial results, SENS stock experienced a large spike and then quickly corrected to its pre-report levels.
