Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results
On 9th August 2021, RWLK announced second-quarter 2021 financial results. Firstly, the total revenue was $1.4 million, compared to $1.7 million in the same quarter the previous year. The drop is mostly due to fewer ReWalk Personal 6.0 devices sold in Germany, which was compensated by greater income from Myolyn and ReStore transactions.
Secondly, the gross margin was 51 percent, compared to 61 percent in the second quarter of 2020. The drop is mostly attributable to a shift in sales mix as well as increased service expenses. Thirdly, the total operating expenditures were $3.9 million, compared to $3.6 million in the same quarter the previous year. Higher SG&A personnel and employee-related expenditures are to blame for the increase.

First Quarter 2021 Financial Results
RWLK published the first quarter of 2021 financial results on 11th May 2021. In the first quarter of 2021, total revenue was $1.3 million, up from $0.8 million in the previous year’s first quarter. More ReWalk Personal 6.0 units were sold in Germany and the United States, which contributed to the rise.
The gross margin was 54 percent, up from 49 percent in the same period of 2020. The rise is largely attributable to a larger number of units sold during the quarter compared to the prior year.

The first quarter of 2021 had a $3.1 million net loss, compared to a $3.8 million loss the previous year.
