BEDFORD, MA--(Marketwired - May 06, 2013) - Insulet Corporation (NASDAQ: PODD), the leader in tubeless insulin pump technology with its OmniPod® Insulin Management System, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013.

First Quarter Results

First quarter 2013 revenue increased 20% to $57.4 million, compared to $47.8 million in the first quarter of 2012. Gross profit for the first quarter of 2013 improved by 24% to $25.2 million, as compared to a gross profit of $20.3 million for the first quarter of 2012. The increase in revenue and gross profit was driven by sales of the new OmniPod both in the US and in international markets. The Company launched the new OmniPod in the US in February 2013.

Operating loss for the first quarter of 2013 was $6.2 million, compared to an operating loss of $10.9 million in the first quarter of 2012, an improvement of 43%. Operating expenses remained relatively unchanged at $31.4 million in the first quarter of 2013 compared to $31.2 million in the first quarter of 2012.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2013 was $10.7 million, or $0.20 per share, compared to a net loss of $14.8 million, or $0.31 per share, for the first quarter of 2012.

"We are pleased with the initial launch of the new, smaller and lighter OmniPod in the U.S.," said Duane DeSisto, President and Chief Executive Officer of Insulet. "Our customers and healthcare professionals have been sharing their positive feedback about the reduced size, ease of use and change to the insulin on board calculation. Demand for the new OmniPod has been tremendous with referrals and initial shipments up by more than 40% over the last two months as compared to the prior year. In the coming weeks, we expect to begin converting the existing customer base to the new OmniPod and continue to expect the transition to be completed by the end of the third quarter."

As of March 31, 2013, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $148.1 million compared to $57.3 million at December 31, 2012. In January 2013, the Company sold approximately 4.7 million shares of common stock at $20.75 per share and received net proceeds of approximately $92.8 million.


For the year ending December 31, 2013, the Company reiterates its estimate that revenue will be in the range of $240 to $255 million. For the second quarter of 2013, the Company expects that revenue will be in the range of $59 to $62 million.
