First Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Worldwide revenue was $20.4 million in the first quarter 2021, a 22% increase from $16.8 million in the corresponding period in 2020. U.S. revenue for the first quarter 2021 was $18.8 million, a 23% increase from $15.3 million in the corresponding period in 2020. International revenue for the first quarter 2021 was $1.7 million, a 10% increase from $1.5 million in the corresponding period in 2020.

Gross margin was 89% for the first quarter 2021, as compared to 89% in the corresponding period in 2020. Higher cost of operations to support the growth of the business were offset by lower inventory write-downs.

Operating expenses increased 11% to $29.8 million in the first quarter 2021, as compared to $26.8 million in the corresponding period in 2020. The increase was driven by higher sales and marketing expenses related to increased sales hiring, research and development expenses for new product development costs and increased stock-based compensation expense.

Operating loss was $11.6 million in the first quarter 2021, as compared to an operating loss of $11.9 million in the corresponding period in 2020.

Net loss was $12.2 million, or $0.37 per diluted share for the first quarter 2021, as compared to a net loss of $12.8 million, or $0.47 per diluted share in the corresponding period in 2020.

Cash and marketable securities were $185.1 million and long-term borrowings were $39.5 million as of March 31, 2021.

2021 Financial Guidance Update

While encouraged by the strong underlying momentum in the business, SI-BONE remains cautious given the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 cases and the potential negative impact on hospitals and ASC’s. Company guidance is highly sensitive to assumptions on a global recovery, which anticipates continued progress on vaccinations and immunizations resulting in normalized case scheduling and elective procedure levels progressing throughout the year. While the first quarter of 2021 was a good start to the year, the Company continues to take a measured approach given the early stages of the COVID-19 recovery. Based on these assumptions, the Company continues to expect full year 2021 total revenue to be approximately $92 million to $94 million, representing growth of 25% to 28% compared to full year 2020.

About SI-BONE, Inc.

SI-BONE is a medical device company that pioneered minimally invasive surgery of the SI joint with the iFuse Implant System. Studies have shown that the SI joint can be a source of pain in 15% to 30% of chronic low back pain. The iFuse Implant™, commercially available since 2009, is the only SI joint fusion device supported by multiple prospective clinical studies, including two randomized controlled trials, showing improved pain, patient function and quality of life resulting from treatment. There are over 90 peer-reviewed publications demonstrating the safety, durable effectiveness, and biomechanical and economic benefits unique to the iFuse Implant ( This body of evidence has enabled multiple government and private insurance payors to establish coverage of the SI joint fusion procedure exclusively when performed with the iFuse Implant System.

The iFuse Implant System is intended for sacroiliac fusion for conditions including sacroiliac joint dysfunction that is a direct result of sacroiliac joint disruption and degenerative sacroiliitis. This includes conditions whose symptoms began during pregnancy or in the peripartum period and have persisted postpartum for more than 6 months. The iFuse Implant System is also intended for sacroiliac fusion to augment stabilization and immobilization of the sacroiliac joint in skeletally mature patients undergoing sacropelvic fixation as part of a lumbar or thoracolumbar fusion. In addition, the iFuse Implant System is intended for sacroiliac fusion in acute, non-acute, and non-traumatic fractures involving the sacroiliac joint. There are potential risks associated with the iFuse Implant System. It may not be appropriate for all patients and all patients may not benefit.
