Class A User Licenses for Accuray Products Awarded to 16 Hospitals in China

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Accuray Incorporated (Nasdaq: ARAY) announced that class A user licenses for Accuray products were awarded to 16 hospitals during February by the Chinese National Health and Family Planning Commission (NHFPC). TomoTherapy® System licenses were received by 12 hospitals and CyberKnife® System licenses were received by four hospitals. Of the 16 licenses just issued, Accuray believes that six licenses will allow orders already in backlog to be recognized as revenue in the near future and 10 licenses are expected to lead to new system orders entered into backlog in the coming months. In total, between 2013 and year to date 2015, the NHFPC has released 32 of its planned 60 licenses. 

"There is a significant unmet patient need in China for precision radiation therapy systems that can effectively treat cancer while maximizing patients' quality of life," said Joshua H. Levine, president and chief executive officer of Accuray. "We're encouraged by the NHFPC's vote of confidence in our company's precise innovative tumor treatments and our systems' ability to make a positive difference in the lives of Chinese cancer patients. Our TomoTherapy and CyberKnife Systems will enable clinicians to offer their patients radiation therapy options, tailored to each patient's needs, which precisely target the tumor while avoiding healthy tissue."
