BIOLASE Reports Strong Sequential Revenue Growth In Third Quarter 2020

  • Reopening of Dental Practices Drives Sequential Revenue Growth
  • Clinically Proven Product Portfolio Reduces Potential Risk of Infectious Pathogens; Creates Significant Growth Opportunities as Dental Professionals Seek Safer Technologies to Treat Patients

 

FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif., Nov. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- BIOLASE, Inc. (NASDAQ: BIOL), the global leader in dental lasers, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020.

Third Quarter 2020 Financial Highlights:

  • U.S. laser revenue increased 16% year over year
  • U.S. consumables and other revenue increased 25% year over year
  • New customers represented over 90% of U.S. laser sales in the quarter
  • Total revenue more than doubled sequentially, while down 24% year over year
  • Operating expenses decreased 24% year over year
  • Significantly strengthened balance sheet with an $18.0 million equity raise

"Our significantly improved third quarter revenue was driven by several factors, including 95% of dental offices having reopened in the United States, dental procedure levels having reached 70-80% of their pre-Covid-19 levels, and the fact that our product portfolio reduces the risk of infectious pathogens," said Todd Norbe, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our Epic Hygiene dental laser meets the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines to minimize the risk of COVID-19, while our all-tissue Waterlase dental lasers create 98% less aerosol than traditional dental handpieces, meeting the American Dental Association's recommendation of reduced aerosol production to limit the spread of infectious pathogens, such as COVID-19. These unique attributes meet the rising needs of both dentists and patients as they look for solutions that allow them to provide and receive dental treatment in the safest way possible."

2020 Third Quarter Financial Results

Net revenue for the third quarter of 2020 was $6.5 million, an increase of 124% sequentially from second quarter revenue of $2.9 million, and a decrease of 24% compared to net revenue of $8.6 million for the third quarter of 2019. U.S. laser revenue was $2.7 million in the third quarter of 2020, up 16% when compared to U.S. laser revenue of $2.3 million for the third quarter of 2019. This increase is due to higher average selling prices in the third quarter of 2020 than in 2019. U.S. consumables and other revenue for the third quarter of 2020, which consists of revenue from consumable products such as disposable tips, increased 25% compared to the third quarter of 2019. Outside the U.S., laser revenue declined 64% to $1.0 million for the third quarter of 2020 compared to $2.8 million for the third quarter of 2019.

Gross margin for the third quarter of 2020 was 35%, compared to 34% for the third quarter of 2019. The higher gross margin reflects higher average U.S. selling prices of our lasers and a higher percentage of U.S. sales, partially offset by a decline in revenues relative to our fixed costs. Total operating expenses were $5.9 million for the third quarter of 2020 compared to $7.9 million for the third quarter of 2019, a decrease of approximately 24%. Operating loss for the third quarter of 2020 was $3.7 million, compared to an operating loss of $4.9 million in the third quarter of 2019, a decrease of 25% year over year. Net income for the third quarter of 2020 was $12,000 and less than $0.01 per share before a deemed dividend on preferred stock of $17.4 million, compared to a net loss of $5.5 million, or $0.25 per share, for the third quarter of 2019. Net loss after the deemed dividend was $17.4 million or $0.21 per share for the three months ended September 30, 2020.

Cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash totaled $19.2 million as of September 30, 2020, and included proceeds from the rights offering completed in July.

Non-GAAP Disclosure

In addition to the financial information prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. ("GAAP"), this press release includes certain historical non-GAAP financial information. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures assist investors in making comparisons of period-to-period operating results and that, in some respects, these non-GAAP financial measures are more indicative of the Company's ongoing core operating performance than their GAAP equivalents. In 2019, the Company revised its non-GAAP financial measures to include the change in allowance for doubtful accounts in an effort to better align its Adjusted EBITDA with its loan covenants and how management evaluates business performance.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net loss before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, change in fair value of patent litigation settlement liability, and allowance for doubtful accounts. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA in its evaluation of the Company's core results of operations and trends between fiscal periods and believes that these measures are important components of its internal performance measurement process. Therefore, investors should consider non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or as superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Further, the non-GAAP financial measures presented by the Company may be different from similarly named non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.
