SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Minerva Surgical, Inc. (Nasdaq: UTRS) (Minerva Surgical or the Company), a medical device company that has established a broad product line of commercially available, minimally invasive medical devices that address the most common causes of abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) as alternatives to hysterectomy, today reported preliminary unaudited fourth quarter and full year 2021 revenue expectations.
Preliminary Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2021 Highlights:
- Fourth quarter 2021 revenues are expected to be in the range of $13.5M – $13.7M, compared with revenues of $13.6M in fourth quarter of 2020. Full year 2021 revenues are expected to be in the range of $52.0M – $52.2M, compared with reported revenues of $37.8M for full year 2020.

“The fourth quarter of 2021 was a busy time for our team, and I’m very pleased with our execution on a number of fronts. Despite the continuing challenges from COVID-19, we are seeing good progress in establishing new commercial accounts,” said David M. Clapper, Minerva Surgical Chief Executive Officer. “We are also setting the foundation for our “direct to consumer/patient” marketing effort, while at the same time, onboarding a significant number of new sales territory managers. Overall, we feel optimistic about our revenue growth in the coming year in spite of the macro environment that the Omicron variant and hospital staffing shortages are continuing to impose on elective surgeries.”
