Share:

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Invuity, Inc. (NASDAQ:IVTY), a leading medical technology company focused on minimal access surgery, today announced financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2018.

Q2 2018 Highlights

  • Second quarter 2018 revenue grew 7.5% to $10.5 million compared to revenue of $9.8 million in the second quarter of 2017.
  • Disposable revenue in the second quarter of 2018 grew 11.5% to $9.2 million compared to $8.3 million in the second quarter of 2017.
  • Net loss for the second quarter 2018 was $9.0 million compared to net loss of $10.4 million in the second quarter of 2017.

"During the quarter we completed our strategic review and have identified our most attractive market opportunities. Going forward, we will transition our direct sales organization to focus on breast and women's health procedures. We will complement these efforts by growing a distribution channel providing access to other high value markets, such as orthopedics, where we have demonstrated historical success," said Interim Chief Executive Officer Scott Flora. "We have already taken steps to streamline the business, and we are now aligning our commercial team and new product introduction efforts to support these priorities. Our new strategy provides us greater focus and a workable pathway to our goal of doubling our revenue over the next three years."

Financial Results

Revenue was $10.5 million in the second quarter of 2018, up 7.5% from revenue of $9.8 million in the second quarter of 2017, driven primarily by consistently increasing market acceptance of PhotonBlade.

Disposable revenue was $9.2 million in the second quarter of 2018, up 11.5% from revenue of $8.3 million in the second quarter of 2017. Disposable revenue comes from the sale of single use devices; waveguides that are attached to retractors, illuminated aspirators – both Yankauer and Frazier designs – and most recently the addition of PhotonBlade. These revenues are driven by per procedure adoption and represent the primary driver of the Company's growth.

Gross margin for the second quarter was 61.2% compared to 69.1% for the same period in 2017. The consolidated gross margin was primarily impacted on a comparative basis by the increase in sales of PhotonBlade, which currently has a lower gross margin than other disposable products. Progress continues to be made on programs to reduce PhotonBlade manufacturing costs.

Total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2018 were $14.6 million, including $1.2 million in severance and litigation expenses, compared to $16.6 million, including $0.7 million in severance and litigation expenses, in the prior year period.

The net loss for the second quarter of 2018 was $9.0 million, or $0.37 loss per share, compared to a net loss of $10.4 million, or $0.61 loss per share, for the second quarter of 2017.

The Company's balance sheet as of June 30, 2018 included total cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of $23.9 million.

Corporate Strategic Update

The Company has completed its strategic review and has decided to focus its direct sales efforts on breast and women's health procedures. The Company will continue to sell its products in other medical specialties including orthopedics through distributors. The Company anticipates that this change will allow its direct sales reps to execute against a more focused strategy and most effectively sell the Company's full product portfolio.

Business Outlook

For 2018 Invuity continues to expect revenue to exceed $46 million and disposable revenues to grow in excess of 25%.
