InMode’s Evolve platform, which is the first hand-free platform with three treatment modality, has been well received by customers. Although it was launched only in the United States, the company confirmed that the product has performed well in the fourth quarter. Hence, InMode expects a revenue uptick on the platform’s robust performance.
The company has set up two fully-owned sales and marketing subsidiary in early October 2019, one each in India and Australia, as part of its global expansion strategy. InMode expects to have witnessed rise in global sales in the fourth quarter, banking on the strategy as it enables the company to sell products in its portfolio directly to intended people (doctors) and not through distributors. On the regulatory front, InMode received Health Canada Certification for multiple new products in October 2019, which further expanded its presence in Canada. The certification included two clinically proven technologies — Morpheus8 and AccuTite, which have been widely recognized since then as the preferred choice of aesthetic solutions by physicians. We anticipate the company's Canadian operations to positively impact fourth-quarter results. InMode is optimistic about the continued customer adoption of its brands, namely BodyTite, FaceTite, NeckTite, AccuTite and Morpheus8. Gains from the popularity of its brands, based on worldwide system sales, is expected to get reflected in fourth-quarter results in the form of a revenue uptick. InMode’s Bipolar RF technology performed quite well in the third quarter, backed by rising customer adoption of the minimally invasive technology. This momentum is expected to have been maintained in the fourth quarter as well.
