RxSight, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2024 Financial Results

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., May 06, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (NASDAQ: RXST)RxSight, Inc., an ophthalmic medical device company dedicated to providing high-quality customized vision to patients following cataract surgery, today reported financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2024.

Key Quarterly Highlights

  • Reported first quarter 2024 revenue of $29.5 million, an increase of 69% compared to the first quarter of 2023, reflecting:
    • The sale of 20,218 Light Adjustable Lenses (LAL®/LAL+™), representing a 92% increase in procedure volume compared to the first quarter of 2023;
    • The sale of 66 Light Delivery Devices (LDD™s), representing an 18% increase in unit sales compared to the first quarter of 2023 and expanding the installed base to 732 LDDs at the end of the quarter, representing a 61% increase compared to the end of the first quarter of 2023; and
  • The company increased its 2024 full-year revenue, gross margin and operating expense guidance.

"We are pleased with a strong start to the year, fueled by the continued adoption of our Light Adjustable Lens technology,” said Ron Kurtz, Chief Executive Officer and President of RxSight. “With the growing number of doctors and practices offering the LAL as well as increasing interest among patients, we believe we are establishing a new standard for premium IOL offerings in the U.S.”

First Quarter Financial Results

In the first quarter of 2024, total revenue was $29.5 million, an increase of 69% compared to $17.5 million in the first quarter of 2023. Revenue growth was driven by a 92% increase in LAL revenue and a 35% increase in LDD revenue, compared to the first quarter of 2023.

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2024 was $20.7 million or 70% of revenue, an increase of $10.3 million or 100% compared to gross profit of $10.4 million or 59% of revenue for the first quarter of 2023. The favorable shift in product mix toward LAL sales drove the increase in gross profit in the quarter, along with reduced costs to produce LALs, primarily due to higher production volumes and increased margin on the LDD due to lower material costs.

Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2024 were $31.4 million, a 34% increase from $23.5 million in the first quarter of 2023, reflecting the company’s ongoing investments to grow its LDD installed base and support increased LAL sales volume.

In the first quarter of 2024, the company reported a net loss of $(9.1) million, or $(0.25) per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $(13.2) million, or $(0.42) per basic and diluted share in the first quarter of 2023. Adjusted net loss in the first quarter of 2024 was $(4.4) million, or $(0.12) per basic and diluted share, compared to an adjusted net loss of $(9.9) million, or $(0.31) per basic and diluted share in the first quarter of 2023.

Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments as of March 31, 2024, were $125.4 million compared to $127.2 million at December 31, 2023.

2024 Guidance

The company increased its 2024 full-year revenue, gross margin and operating expense guidance as follows:

  • Revenue of $132.0 million to $137.0 million, representing implied growth of 48% to 54% compared to 2023, up from prior guidance of $128.0 million to $135.0 million;
  • Gross margin in the range of 68% to 70%, representing an implied increase of 800 basis points to 1,000 basis points compared to 2023, up from prior guidance of 65% to 67%;

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements presented under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), we believe certain non-GAAP measures, including adjusted net loss, and adjusted net loss per share, basic and diluted, provide useful information to investors and are useful in evaluating our operating performance. For example, we exclude stock-based compensation expense because this expense is non-cash in nature and we believe excluding this item provides meaningful supplemental information regarding our operational performance and allows investors the ability to make more meaningful comparisons between our operating results and those of other companies.

We believe that non-GAAP financial information, when taken collectively, may be helpful to investors because it provides consistency and comparability with past financial performance. However, non-GAAP financial information is presented for supplemental informational purposes only, has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. In addition, other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate similarly titled non-GAAP measures differently or may use other measures to evaluate their performance. A reconciliation is provided below for each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable financial measure stated in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.

Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted Net Loss Per Share

Adjusted net loss is a non-GAAP financial measure that we define as net loss adjusted for stock-based compensation. We believe adjusted net loss provides investors with useful information on period-to-period performance as evaluated by management and comparison with our past financial performance and is useful in evaluating our operating performance compared to that of other companies in our industry, as this metric generally eliminates the effects of certain items that may vary from company to company for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance.

Reconciliations of net loss to adjusted net loss and the presentation of adjusted net loss per share, basic and diluted, are as follows:
