Analysts were calling for adjusted earnings of $3.07 per share for the company’s fourth quarter. Intuitive Surgical’s revenue did impress as it came in at $1.05 billion, a 17.7% increase compared to its year-ago quarter. The figure was also better than what Wall Street called for by $10 million.
The company also said that its shipments of its da Vinci systems surged 34% year-over-year to 290 units.
