BOCA RATON, Fla., Nov. 05, 2020 — 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 and nine months ended September 30, 2020.
Highlights from the third quarter of 2020 and recent weeks include (all comparisons are with the third quarter of 2019, unless otherwise indicated):
- Appointed Megan Cornish, with deep experience navigating Capitol Hill, to the Board of Directors effective January 1, 2021
- Significantly expanded the Company’s market opportunity with the acquisition of two mobile laser companies operating throughout the State of Florida
- Sold two SRT-100™ systems to China following the appointment of Benson Suen as Vice President of International Sales
- Revenues were $1.6 million, compared with $5.8 million and up sequentially from $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2020
- Net loss was $(1.7) million, or $(0.10) per share, compared with net loss of $(0.7) million, or $(0.04) per share
- Announced publication in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology of a retrospective study showing keloidectomy followed by superficial radiation therapy (SRT) had an approximate 10% recurrence rate, compared with an expected recurrence rate of more than 80% following surgical excision alone
- Maintained customer support during the COVID-19 pandemic via frequent direct outreach and a series of online programs highlighting the benefits of SRT to treat non-melanoma skin cancer
- Began generating recurring revenues via the Sentinel™ IT Solutions package
- Cash, cash equivalents and investments were $16.1 million as of September 30, 2020, compared with $15.5 million as of December 31, 2019 due to expense reductions and cash provided from operating activities
“Our revenues improved sequentially during the third quarter, although our business continues to be significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Joe Sardano, chairman and chief executive officer of Sensus Healthcare. “While our physician customers are focused on rebuilding patient traffic, we have used the past months wisely to lay the foundation for what we believe will be a profitable 2021. We continued to maintain strong customer ties via consistent outreach and sponsorship of helpful Zoom meetings with topics of interest to our customers. We continued to affirm SRT as an attractive alternative to Mohs surgery, as physicians are reluctant to incur the risks of infection and adverse events during this time. Our communications also included the recent American Society of Radiation Oncology’s recommendation of SRT as the first-line alternative to surgery when treating patients with non-melanoma skin cancer. In addition, a retrospective study was published in October in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology showing keloidectomy followed by SRT had an approximate 10% recurrence rate, compared with an expected recurrence rate of more than 80% following surgical excision alone. We believe that SRT will become a standard of care for keloid treatment as awareness grows.
“With respect to reimbursement for SRT, we continue to work with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services in order to revalue our main SRT billing code upward by January 2, 2021. While we do expect an increase in reimbursement, we have been actively engaged in providing information to the Relative Value Scale Update Committee. Final reimbursement levels will be determined in December. We believe given the efficacy and patient-friendly attributes of SRT for the treatment of non-melanoma skin cancer, reimbursement levels will be commensurate with the value of the treatment. We are also looking forward to benefitting from our new director Megan Cornish’s advice as we work with U.S. government entities.
“Our Sentinel IT Solutions software provides asset management and HIPAA-compliant patient data and storage capability, and we are particularly pleased Sentinel IT has started to generate high-margin recurring revenue. Although early in its lifecycle, Sentinel holds significant promise as an integrated feature of the SRT-100 Vision and the new lasers we anticipate launching early next year. In the meantime, we also generated modest revenue from our new mobile laser business during the six weeks since their acquisitions. We plan new laser rental programs for 2021, including a monthly rental program, which are expected to grow this business into a meaningful contributor.
“While the U.S. has been struggling to reopen safely in the midst of COVID-19, we note that China’s economy has largely returned to pre-pandemic levels. We are making solid headway in China, helped by our newly-hired Vice President of International Sales, Benson Suen, and sold two SRT-100 systems there during the third quarter. We believe we will sell two more systems to public hospitals in China during the fourth quarter. We are optimistic about our prospects elsewhere in Asia, and are working to complete regulatory filing in India, while finalizing distribution in Taiwan and elsewhere in Southeast Asia,” Mr. Sardano continued.
“Research by the three luminary hospitals engaged to provide data to support our marketing efforts for the Sculptura™ System had come to a standstill during the pandemic, but is now poised to resume in the fourth quarter. We also are speaking with at least 10 more hospitals that have shown interest in Sculptura’s capabilities and its unique Anisotropic Radiation Therapy with Beam Sculpting™ and Robotic Respiratory Tracking. While breast cancer appears to be the main focus of these cancer centers, we expect Sculptura ultimately to be used for up to 17 different oncology indications. We are hopeful sales will begin again in 2021.
“Lastly, we have judiciously controlled our expenses and this careful attention, along with non-dilutive capital, resulted in an increase in cash and equivalents to $16.1 million as of September 30, from $15.5 million as of December 31, 2019. We believe our capital structure is healthy and will support the resumption of growth we expect in the fourth quarter and throughout the coming year,” Mr. Sardano concluded.
Third Quarter Financial Results
Revenues for the third quarter of 2020 were $1.6 million, compared with $5.8 million for the third quarter of 2019. Revenues were adversely impacted by lower unit sales throughout the quarter due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Gross profit for the third quarter of 2020 was $0.7 million, or 41.5% of revenues, compared with $3.8 million, or 65.8% of revenues, for the third quarter of 2019. The overall decrease in gross profit was mostly due to the decrease in units sold as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak while still incurring fixed costs, depreciation, and amortization expenses.
Selling and marketing expense for the third quarter of 2020 was $1.0 million, compared with $2.1 million for the third quarter of 2019. The decrease was primarily attributable to cancellations of in-person trade shows due to COVID-19, a decrease in commission expense due to lower sales and reduced spending on marketing activities.
General and administrative expense for the third quarter of 2020 was $1.0 million, relatively unchanged from the third quarter 2019.
Research and development expense for the third quarter of 2020 was $0.9 million, compared with $1.6 million for the third quarter of 2019. The decrease was primarily due to a reduction in expenses related to development of the Sculptura system.
Other income was $0.6 million for the third quarter of 2020, compared with $0.1 million for the third quarter of 2019. The net increase was primarily attributable to a bargain purchase gain recorded as a result of the two acquisitions, offset by interest expense in connection with the Company’s loan under the Small Business Administration Paycheck Protection Program.
Net loss for the third quarter of 2020 was $(1.7) million, or $(0.10) per share, compared with net loss of $(0.7) million, or $(0.04) per share, for the third quarter of 2019.
Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2020 was $(1.5) million, compared with $(0.5) million for the third 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 $16.1 million as of September 30, 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.
Nine Month Financial Results
Revenues for the nine months of 2020 were $4.5 million, compared with $18.8 million for the nine months of 2019. The decline was due to lower unit sales related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Gross profit for the nine months of 2020 was $2.0 million, or 45.1% of revenue, compared with $12.1 million, or 64.5% of revenue, for the nine months of 2019.
Selling and marketing expense was $4.0 million for the nine months of 2020, compared with $6.6 million for the nine months of 2019.
General and administrative expense was $3.2 million year-to-date, compared with $2.9 million for the prior-year period.
Research and development expense for the nine months of 2020 was $3.3 million, compared with $5.5 million for the nine months of 2019.
Other income was $0.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $0.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The net increase was primarily attributable to a bargain purchase gain of recorded as a result of the two acquisitions, offset by interest expense in connection with the Company’s loan under the Small Business Administration Paycheck Protection Program.
The net loss for the nine months of 2020 was $7.9 million, or ($0.48) per share, compared with a net loss of $(2.7) million, or $(0.17) per share, for the nine months of 2019.
Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $(7.1) million compared with $(2.1) million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.
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.
