BOCA RATON, Fla., May 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sensus Healthcare, Inc. (Nasdaq: SRTS), a medical device company specializing in highly effective, non-invasive, minimally-invasive and cost-effective treatments for oncological and non-oncological conditions, announces financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2020.
Highlights from the first quarter of 2020 and recent weeks include (all comparisons are with the first quarter of 2019, unless otherwise indicated):
“I am so very proud of the Sensus team and how together we are navigating the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, which significantly impacted our first quarter financial results. Our intra-quarter sales historically have skewed toward the end of the quarter, and that is the time period in Q1 when the pandemic began closing the U.S. economy,” said Joe Sardano, Sensus Healthcare’s chairman and chief executive officer. “We are taking multiple actions to prepare for the resumption of post-pandemic daily life. We continue to expand awareness of SRT and its utility in treating non-melanoma skin cancer, while supporting physician customers and protecting cash so we emerge from this crisis ready to do business.
“We have used this time of social distancing as an opportunity to reach out to customers on a personal level as never before. Sensus has built an impressive network of contacts over many years, and we are leveraging our contacts to help customers as much as possible, including sourcing items such as protective masks and critical medicines. We are sponsoring a series of online programs for dermatologists, during which they share information and practice regimens with one another. Of note, these programs are affirming the use of SRT as an alternative to Mohs surgery, as physicians are reluctant to incur the risks of infection and adverse events during this time. We are hopeful SRT may replace many more Mohs surgeries on a permanent basis as physicians and patients alike see the excellent curative results and the ease of use of SRT. With our main reimbursement code expected to be revalued upward by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services this summer, and Mohs surgery reimbursement expected to be revalued downward, we believe SRT will make significant market inroads once the new rates go into effect on January 2, 2021. To date we have penetrated only about 2% of the U.S. market, so clearly there is plenty of opportunity,” Mr. Sardano added.
“The COVID-19 pandemic also is impacting research work with Sculptura™ at luminary hospitals, including the University of Pennsylvania. Sculptura is our Anisotropic Radiation Therapy with Beam Sculpting™ capabilities and Robotic Respiratory Tracking for up to 17 different indications. Given current treatment constraints at hospitals, our sales forecasts are guarded this year. Although recent interest has been very high, we believe sales of these systems will largely be pushed into 2021.
“During the fourth quarter of 2019, we reduced expenses including rightsizing our staff. Given these actions, along with our cash position and revolving line of credit, I am confident we are well prepared for the resumption of sales,” Mr. Sardano concluded.
First Quarter Financial Results
Revenues for the first quarter of 2020 were $1.7 million, compared with $5.4 million for the first quarter of 2019. Revenues were adversely impacted by COVID-19, primarily near the end of the quarter.
Gross profit for the first quarter of 2020 was $0.7 million, or 42.2% of revenues, compared with $3.3 million, or 61.0% of revenues, for the first quarter of 2019. The decrease was primarily due to the lower sales previously noted.
Selling and marketing expense for the first quarter of 2020 was $1.8 million, down from $2.5 million for the first quarter of 2019. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower trade show expense due to cancellations related to COVID-19, decreased commission expense due to lower sales, and lower overall spending on marketing activities.
General and administrative expense for the first quarter of 2020 was $1.3 million, compared with $1.0 million for the first quarter of 2019. The increase was primarily due to one-time severance expense and related legal fees.
Research and development expense for the first quarter of 2020 was $1.2 million, compared with $2.0 million for the first quarter of 2019. The decrease was primarily due to a reduction of research and development related to the Sculptura system.
Net loss for the first quarter of 2020 was $3.6 million, or $0.22 per share, compared with a net loss of $2.1 million, or $0.13 per share, for the first quarter of 2019.
Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2020 was negative $3.3 million, compared with negative $1.9 million for the first quarter of 2019. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization 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, cash equivalents and investments were $15.8 million as of March 31, 2020, compared with $15.5 million as of December 31, 2019. At quarter-end the Company had no long-term debt and no outstanding borrowings on its revolving line of credit. Subsequent to the close of the first quarter, Sensus expanded its revolving credit agreement with Silicon Valley Bank to $10.0 million, up from $5.0 million previously. In addition, Sensus received a loan under the Small Business Administration Paycheck Protection Program enabled by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act of 2020, to be used for employee compensation and facilities costs.
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.
