- U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared Sculptura™, the company's Modulated Intra Operative Radiation Therapy (M-IORT) system

- Signed a new lease in Israel to increase manufacturing capacity
- Appointed Ziv Karni, Ph.D. as Chief Scientific Officer for Laser Systems
- Announced results from a five-year retrospective study with SRT for non-melanoma skin cancer showing a cure rate of 98.9%, which exceeds the Mohs surgery cure rate
- Shipped 18 systems during the quarter, including eight SRT-100 Vision systems
- Worldwide installed base surpassed 400 systems, with more than 100 being used to treat keloids
- Reported revenues of $5.4 million, compared with $6.0 million for the first quarter of 2018
- Ended the quarter with $11.0 million in cash and investments; after the close of the quarter, $5.5 million of accounts receivable were collected
"The first quarter and recent weeks were highlighted by Sculptura FDA clearance and selling our second Sculptura system to Rabin Medical Center, a renowned institution in Israel focused on researching the latest technologies," said Joe Sardano, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "This sale, along with the Q4 2018 sale to the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and our subsequent research and development agreement, is expected to provide important data for a variety of indications. We are very encouraged by these purchases from such prestigious institutions and are gratified they view Sculptura as an important advancement in cancer treatment. We have staffed up our oncology sales team, which now numbers seven people, in anticipation of a measured sales ramp through the year for this innovative product."
Mr. Sardano continued, "Premier – one of the nation's largest group purchasing organizations serving approximately 4,000 hospitals and health systems and about 165,000 other providers and organizations – has added SRT to its list of approved products for its members, effective August 1. This achievement is the culmination of more than six months of work on the part of Sensus and will support our efforts to penetrate the hospital market. We will now begin work with Premier to secure inclusion of Sculptura at an appropriate time."
"In recent weeks topline results from a five-year retrospective study of non-melanoma skin cancer patients treated with SRT were announced. The study was conducted across four U.S. sites and showed a 98.9% cure rate among 516 male and female patients with 776 skin cancer lesions. Of note, this cure rate exceeded the reported cure rate for Mohs surgery. We intend to highlight this study in our marketing materials and expect that this cure rate will further strengthen the efficacy discussion for SRT."
"We continue to increase our footprint in Israel, the site of our R&D operations, in particular for new laser products and for sales outside the U.S. We plan to expand our manufacturing capacity and have signed a lease for a factory. We expect to begin production there by the end of the year," Mr. Sardano added.
Commenting on financial results, Mr. Sardano said, "First quarter revenues were impacted as a key customer worked to shore up their capital position to support faster-than-expected growth. We made the decision to temporarily moderate sales to them and not extend further credit. Financing now appears to be in place and subsequent to quarter end they paid down over $5 million of their outstanding accounts receivables. Although there is strong demand, we made the decision to recover the Q1 shortfall in sales, numbering seven units, to this customer over the next few quarters so as not to overwhelm our infrastructure. We expect to make up all lost sales and we reaffirm expectations for full-year double-digit revenue growth."
First Quarter 2019 Financial Results
Revenues for the first quarter of 2019 were $5.4 million, compared with $6.0 million for the first quarter of 2018. This was attributable to fewer sales of the higher-priced SRT-100 Vision product during the quarter.
Gross profit for the first quarter of 2019 was $3.3 million, or 61.0% of revenues, compared with $3.9 million, or 66.2 % of revenues, for the first quarter of 2018. This was mainly due to a shift in product mix.
Selling and marketing expense for the first quarter of 2019 was $2.5 million, compared with $2.2 million for the first quarter of 2018. The increase was primarily due to increased headcount.
General and administrative expense for the first quarter of 2019 was $1.0 million, compared with $1.3 million for the first quarter of 2018. This was due to a one-time stock-compensation expense of $0.4 million in the 2018 quarter, offset by net other increases.
Research and development expense for the first quarter of 2019 was $2.0 million, compared with $1.5 million for the first quarter of 2018. The increase was mainly due to expenses related to the FDA clearance of Sculptura in February, as well as the ramp-up in production.
Net loss for the first quarter of 2019 was $(2.1) million, or ($0.13) per share, compared with a net loss of $(1.1) million, or $(0.08) per share, for the first quarter of 2018.
Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2019 was $(1.9) million, compared with $(0.5) million for the first quarter of 2018. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before depreciation and amortization, income taxes, interest and stock-compensation expense. Please see below for a reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures, and the specific reasons these non-GAAP financial measures are provided.
Cash and investments were $11.0 million as of March 31, 2019, compared with $15.4 million as of December 31, 2018. The company had no outstanding borrowings on its revolving line of credit at March 31, 2019. During the first quarter of 2019 the company received $2.7 million from the exercise of IPO warrants, which expire on June 8, 2019. Accounts receivable as of March 31, 2019 were $16.9 million, compared with $13.1 million at December 31, 2018. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, Sensus collected $5.5 million in outstanding receivables.
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.
