Q4 Financial Summary

Gross profit, income from operations, net income attributable to Intuitive Surgical, Inc., and net income per diluted share attributable to Intuitive Surgical, Inc. are reported on a GAAP and non-GAAP* basis. The non-GAAP* measures are described below and are reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measures at the end of this release.

Fourth quarter 2023 revenue was $1.93 billion, an increase of 17% compared with $1.66 billion in the fourth quarter of 2022. The higher fourth quarter revenue was driven by growth in da Vinci procedure volume and an increase in the installed base of systems.

Fourth quarter 2023 instruments and accessories revenue increased by 22% to $1.14 billion, compared with $0.94 billion in the fourth quarter of 2022. The increase in instruments and accessories revenue was primarily driven by approximately 21% growth in da Vinci procedure volume and higher pricing, partially offset by customer buying patterns.

Fourth quarter 2023 systems revenue was $480 million, compared with $451 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. The Company placed 415 da Vinci surgical systems in the fourth quarter of 2023, compared with 369 systems in the fourth quarter of 2022. The fourth quarter 2023 da Vinci surgical system placements included 201 systems placed under operating lease arrangements, of which 109 systems were placed under usage-based operating lease arrangements, compared with 154 systems placed under operating lease arrangements, of which 70 systems were placed under usage-based operating lease arrangements in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Fourth quarter 2023 GAAP income from operations increased to $450 million, compared with $373 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. Fourth quarter 2023 GAAP income from operations included share-based compensation expense of $152 million, compared with $129 million in the fourth quarter of 2022. Fourth quarter 2023 non-GAAP* income from operations increased to $621 million, compared with $530 million in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Fourth quarter 2023 GAAP net income attributable to Intuitive Surgical, Inc. was $606 million, or $1.69 per diluted share, compared with $325 million, or $0.91 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2022. Fourth quarter 2023 GAAP net income attributable to Intuitive Surgical, Inc. included excess tax benefits of $22 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, compared with $18 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2022. Fourth quarter 2023 GAAP net income attributable to Intuitive Surgical, Inc. also included income tax benefits arising from the re-measurement of our Swiss deferred tax assets of $67 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, and the receipt of certain tax assets by our Swiss entity of $92 million, or $0.26 per diluted share. These benefits are excluded from non-GAAP net income.

Fourth quarter 2023 non-GAAP* net income attributable to Intuitive Surgical, Inc. was $574 million, or $1.60 per diluted share, compared with $439 million, or $1.23 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2022. Fourth quarter 2023 GAAP and non-GAAP* net income included a discrete tax benefit of $23 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, arising from the release of unrecognized tax benefits due to statute expiration in various jurisdictions.

The Company ended the fourth quarter of 2023 with $7.34 billion in cash, cash equivalents, and investments, a decrease of $177 million during the quarter, primarily driven by capital expenditures, partially offset by cash generated from operations.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic

The fourth quarter of 2023 did not reflect any significant disruptions from COVID-19. During the fourth quarter of 2022, the Company saw COVID-19 resurgences impact da Vinci procedure volumes in China. COVID-19 has had in the past, and could have in the future, an adverse impact on the Company’s procedure volumes.

*About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), the Company uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income attributable to Intuitive Surgical, Inc., and non-GAAP net income per diluted share attributable to Intuitive Surgical, Inc. (“EPS”). The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision-making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance by excluding items such as amortization of intangible assets, share-based compensation (“SBC”) and long-term incentive plan expenses, and other special items. Long-term incentive plan expense relates to phantom share awards granted in China by the Company’s Intuitive-Fosun joint venture to its employees that vest over four years and can remain outstanding for seven to ten years. These awards are valued based on certain key performance metrics. Accordingly, they are subject to significant volatility based on the performance of these metrics and are not tied to performance of the Company’s business within the period. The Company believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing its performance and when planning, forecasting, and analyzing future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management’s internal comparisons to its historical performance. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors, because (1) they allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision-making, and (2) they are used by institutional investors and the analyst community to help them analyze the performance of the Company’s business.

Non-GAAP gross profit. The Company defines non-GAAP gross profit as gross profit, excluding amortization of intangible assets and SBC and long-term incentive plan expenses.

Non-GAAP income from operations. The Company defines non-GAAP income from operations as income from operations, excluding amortization of intangible assets, SBC and long-term incentive plan expenses, a facilities asset abandonment charge, litigation charges and recoveries, and a gain on the sale of a business.

Non-GAAP net income attributable to Intuitive Surgical, Inc. and EPS. The Company defines non-GAAP net income as net income attributable to Intuitive Surgical, Inc., excluding amortization of intangible assets, SBC and long-term incentive plan expenses, a facilities asset abandonment charge, litigation charges and recoveries, a gain on the sale of a business, gains (losses) on strategic investments, adjustments attributable to noncontrolling interest in joint venture, net of the related tax effects, and tax adjustments, including the excess tax benefits or deficiencies associated with SBC arrangements, a one-time tax benefit from re-measurement of Swiss deferred tax assets, a one-time tax benefit from receipt of certain tax assets by our Swiss entity, and the net tax effects related to intra-entity transfers of non-inventory assets. The Company excludes the excess tax benefits or deficiencies associated with SBC arrangements as well as the tax effects associated with non-cash amortization of deferred tax assets related to intra-entity non-inventory transfers, because the Company does not believe these items correlate with the on-going results of its core operations. The tax effects of the non-GAAP items are determined by applying a calculated non-GAAP effective tax rate, which is commonly referred to as the with-and-without method. Without excluding these tax effects, investors would only see the gross effect that these non-GAAP adjustments had on the Company’s operating results. The Company’s calculated non-GAAP effective tax rate is generally higher than its GAAP effective tax rate. The Company defines non-GAAP EPS as non-GAAP net income attributable to Intuitive Surgical, Inc. divided by diluted shares outstanding, which are calculated as GAAP weighted-average outstanding shares plus dilutive potential shares outstanding during the period.

There are a number of limitations related to the use of non-GAAP measures versus measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income attributable to Intuitive Surgical, Inc., and non-GAAP EPS exclude items such as amortization of intangible assets, SBC and long-term incentive plan expenses, excess tax benefits or deficiencies associated with SBC arrangements, and non-cash amortization of deferred tax assets related to intra-entity transfer of non-inventory assets, which are primarily recurring items. SBC expense has been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, a significant recurring expense in the Company’s business. In addition, the components of the costs that the Company excludes in its calculation of non-GAAP net income attributable to Intuitive Surgical, Inc. and non-GAAP EPS may differ from the components that its peer companies exclude when they report their results of operations. Management addresses these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from non-GAAP net income attributable to Intuitive Surgical, Inc. and non-GAAP EPS and evaluating non-GAAP net income attributable to Intuitive Surgical, Inc. and non-GAAP EPS together with net income attributable to Intuitive Surgical, Inc. and net income per share attributable to Intuitive Surgical, Inc. calculated in accordance with GAAP.
