MASON, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–AtriCure, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATRC), a leading innovator in treatments for atrial fibrillation (Afib) and left atrial appendage (LAA) management, announced preliminary financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2019 and provided 2020 financial guidance.
Preliminary, unaudited revenue for fourth quarter 2019 is expected to be approximately $61.3 million, reflecting growth of approximately 16% over the fourth quarter of 2018. U.S. revenue is expected to be $49.5 million, reflecting growth of 15% and driven again by strong sales of open ablation and appendage management products. International revenue is expected to be approximately $11.8 million, an increase of 20% as reported and an increase of 23% on a constant currency basis.
Preliminary revenue for full year 2019 is expected to be $230.8 million, reflecting growth of approximately 14% over full year 2018 (15% on a constant currency basis).

AtriCure will provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to the related GAAP measure in the release of final 2019 results.
“Throughout 2019, we generated consistent double-digit revenue growth while achieving several important milestones. We acquired SentreHEART to bolster our Left Atrial Appendage Management portfolio and leverage our growing commercial channel in the electrophysiology market, completed enrollment in the aMAZE IDE clinical trial, received approval for Continued Access Protocols for both CONVERGE and aMAZE IDE trials, surpassed 200,000 AtriClip devices sold, and launched the cryoICE® cryoSPHERETM device for pain management,” said Michael Carrel, President and Chief Executive Officer of AtriCure. “We are excited about the strength of our open ablation and appendage management businesses as we enter 2020 as well as our longer-term prospects for significant market-expansion resulting from the completion of our CONVERGE and aMAZE IDE trials.”
