BOCA RATON, Fla., Nov. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Sensus Healthcare, Inc. (Nasdaq: SRTS), a medical device company specializing in the non-invasive treatment of non-melanoma skin cancers and keloids with superficial radiation therapy (SRT), announces financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018.
Highlights from the third quarter of 2018 and recent weeks include:
- Continued double-digit growth with revenues of $6.3 million, up 32% over the prior-year period
- Narrowed net loss to $(0.5) million, or $(0.03) per share, from $(1.0) million, or $(0.07) per share a year ago
- Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, improved to $(0.1) million from $(0.8) million
- Shipped 18 systems, including 15 feature-rich, premium-priced SRT-100 Vision™ systems
- Launched the SRT-100+ system following clearance by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in August
- Shipped SRT-100 Vision™ to third hospital customer in Israel
- Raised net proceeds of $15.9 million in an underwritten public offering of common stock
"Our strong and consistent execution of our business plan continued during the third quarter, with revenues increasing 32% year-over-year, and the achievement of double-digit revenue growth quarter after quarter for three years," said Joe Sardano, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Sensus Healthcare. "We were particularly pleased with the traction from our oncology sales organization during the quarter, which we have been building up during the past year. In addition, a key corporate customer has proven to be reliable and lucrative for us, with a program to provide turnkey solutions to physicians.
"During the third quarter we launched the SRT-100+, a next-generation SRT system that adds several innovative features to our existing SRT-100 product, including remote diagnostics and patient medical records integration, as well as core system enhancements. With this system, we have expanded the energy range and included Grenz rays for the potential treatment of psoriasis. Research studies in psoriasis are ongoing, and the results are expected to form the basis for marketing to physicians. We are very pleased with the reception this new product has been receiving, and its launch further strengthens our leadership position in dermatology innovation."
Mr. Sardano continued, "As previously disclosed, we have been investing significantly in research and development, which we view as essential to the long-term prosperity of Sensus. Much of the investment has been directed to our new Intraoperative Radiation Therapy (IORT) system for treating breast and other cancers. We filed a 510(k) application with the FDA at the end of 2017 and continue to expect clearance before the end of the year. We have taken a number of steps to prepare for the anticipated launch of this product early next year, including manufacturing several beta models being tested in key oncology centers and starting the expansion of our oncology sales force. We expect our IORT system, which contains key technological advances, and with an expected list price in excess of $1 million, will play an important role in the growth of Sensus in the coming years.
"Our new office in Tel Aviv is up and running and we were very pleased to consummate the sale of an SRT-100 Vision™ to Sheba Medical Center, which represents the third sale of the product in Israel. Our Tel Aviv base is also a cutting-edge research and development facility for our new suite of lasers and offers a foothold for sales in Europe and Asia.
"We continue to work with key opinion leaders to ensure the use of image-guided superficial radiation is receiving the attention it deserves among healthcare professionals. In October, we highlighted the SRT-100 Vision™ at the American Society of Therapeutic Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) annual meeting and were very pleased with the traffic at our booth.
"We are optimistic about the prospects for Sensus and we have never been in a stronger position, both financially and technologically. Our recent equity fundraise provides important growth capital. Our research and development is creating important advances, and we have funds available to expand our sales organization in a careful and thoughtful way, particularly in oncology as we await IORT clearance. We look forward to continued achievements throughout the remainder of this year, which should provide the base for an excellent 2019," Mr. Sardano concluded.
Financial Results for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2018
Revenues for the third quarter of 2018 increased 32% to $6.3 million, compared with $4.8 million for the third quarter of 2017. The increase was primarily attributable to more units being sold, including an increase in sales of the higher-priced SRT-100 Vision™ product.

Research and development expense for the third quarter of 2018 was $1.7 million, compared with $1.5 million for the third quarter of 2017. The increase was due to the ongoing IORT project, along with additional product development in the Company's new research facility in Israel.
The net loss for the third quarter of 2018 was $(0.5) million, or $(0.03) per share, compared with a net loss of $(1.0) million, or $(0.07) per share, for the third quarter of 2017.
Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2018 was $(0.1) million, compared with $(0.8) million for the third quarter of 2017.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
This press release contains supplemental financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP). Sensus Healthcare management uses Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, in its analysis of performance. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered a substitute for GAAP basis measures nor should it be viewed as a substitute for operating results determined in accordance with GAAP. Management believes the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes the impact of interest, income taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock-compensation expense, provides useful supplemental information that is essential to a proper understanding of the financial results of Sensus Healthcare. Non-GAAP financial measures are not formally defined by GAAP, and other entities may use calculation methods that differ from those used by Sensus Healthcare. As a complement to GAAP financial measures, management believes that Adjusted EBITDA assists investors who follow the practice of some investment analysts who adjust GAAP financial measures to exclude items that may obscure underlying performance and distort comparability. A reconciliation of the GAAP net loss to Adjusted EBITDA is provided in the schedule below.
