Affirms expectations for continued growth in the second quarter and full year profitability
Conference call begins at 4:30 p.m. Eastern time today
BOCA RATON, Fla., May 05, 2022 -- 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, 2022.
Highlights from the first quarter of 2022 and recent weeks include the following (all comparisons are with the first quarter of 2021, unless otherwise indicated):
"Revenues for the first quarter reflect a sharpened focus on our core dermatology business, and we are pleased with the revenue growth we continue to achieve," said Joe Sardano, chairman and chief executive officer of Sensus Healthcare. "During the quarter we sold our non-core asset for $15.0 million in cash and recorded a gain on asset sale of $12.8 million. This cash will primarily be used to fund future growth of our dermatology products and services. We launched TransDermal Infusion into the U.S. market which has tremendous potential in eliminating the need for needle injections allowing for more procedure to be less painful for patients. Also, our board of directors has approved a $3.0 million share repurchase program that we intend to deploy thoughtfully and in the best interest of our stockholders."
Mr. Sardano continued, "We established a fair market value leasing program in January 2021, which continues to be well received and supported the sales growth of SRT-100 Vision systems. This product, with its premium functionality and image-guided ultrasound, now accounts for the vast majority of domestic SRT system sales. The upward revaluation of reimbursement codes by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has made the return on investment for our systems even more compelling. In addition, with increased sales of Vision systems we are selling significantly more service contracts. Approximately one-half of our customers are now under Extended Warranty Service Agreements, compared with just 25% a few years ago, providing Sensus with a growing base of recurring revenues.
"The resumption of in-person trade shows has been deeply gratifying. These events allow us to reconnect with customers, showcase our products and build high-caliber sales leads. We were delighted to highlight our TransDermal Infusion System™ for non-invasive drug delivery for skin rejuvenation treatments, pre-laser treatments and pre- and post-plastic surgery at the Winter Clinical in Hawaii, and at the American Academy of Dermatology conference in Boston. We are excited about the potential for this system, in particular for the delivery of finasteride, commonly known as Propecia, for hair growth. Dr. Glynis Ablon, a key opinion leading dermatologist with the Ablon Skin Institute and Research Center, and Associate Clinical Professor at UCLA is studying the delivery of finasteride with our TransDermal System. We believe her work will validate the system's excellent utility for this indication."
Mr. Sardano concluded, "During the first quarter we hired nine sales representatives, returning our sales organization to pre-pandemic levels. We continue to be confident in our sales and earnings trajectory as supported by a robust organization, excellent products backed by rigorous research, creative methods of financing and a committed management team. Despite current geopolitical events, we continue to be highly optimistic about our prospects."
First Quarter Financial Results
Revenues for the first quarter of 2022 were $10.3 million, compared with $3.1 million for the first quarter of 2021. The 237% increase was primarily driven by a higher number of units sold, increased service revenue, and the impact of COVID-19 on first quarter of 2021 results.
Cost of sales for the first quarter of 2022 was $3.2 million, compared with $1.5 million for the prior-year quarter. The increase was due to higher sales in the 2022 period.
Gross profit for the first quarter of 2022 was $7.1 million, or 69.1% of revenues, compared with $1.6 million, or 51.6% of revenues, for the first quarter of 2021. The increases were primarily driven by the higher number of units sold in 2022, service revenue on installed units, and the impact of COVID-19 on first quarter 2021 results.
Selling and marketing expense for the first quarter of 2022 was $1.2 million, compared with $1.1 million for the first quarter of 2021. The increase was primarily attributable to higher tradeshow expenses and commissions.
General and administrative expense for the first quarter of 2022 was $1.3 million, compared with $1.0 million for the first quarter of 2021. The increase was primarily due to higher professional fees and compensation expense.
Research and development expense for the first quarter of 2022 was $0.7 million, unchanged from the prior-year first quarter.
Other income was $12.8 million for the first quarter of 2022, which is related to the gain on the sale of assets.
Provision for income taxes was $0.6 million for the first quarter of 2022, compared with no income tax provision for the prior-year first quarter.
Net income for the first quarter of 2022 was $16.1 million, or $0.97 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $(1.1) million, or $(0.07) per share, for the first quarter of 2021.
Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2022 was $16.9 million, compared with $(0.8) million for the first quarter of 2021. Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, 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 and investments were $32.8 million as of March 31, 2022, compared with $14.5 million as of December 31, 2021. The company had no outstanding borrowings under its revolving line of credit as of March 31, 2022 or December 31, 2021.
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.
