Senseonics Holdings, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results

Aug. 8, 2018 20:10 UTC

GERMANTOWN, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Senseonics Holdings, Inc. (NYSE-American: SENS), a medical technology company focused on the development and commercialization of a long-term, implantable continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system for people with diabetes, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.


  • Received FDA approval for the Eversense® CGM System, the first and only long-term implantable continuous glucose monitoring system
  • Completed first commercial insertion in the U.S.
  • Secured first U.S. payor coverage of Eversense from Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey
  • Eversense Mobile Clinic traveling across the U.S. training physicians
  • Eversense® XL System introduced across the existing European markets
  • Strengthened balance sheet with additional $150 million of gross proceeds through completion of underwritten equity offering

“Second quarter was a very significant period for Senseonics. We received FDA approval for the Eversense System, began our U.S. commercial launch at ADA, and subsequently, in just six weeks, secured reimbursement from BCBS New Jersey. Additionally, our penetration in the EMEA market continues to grow as we have expanded availability of the Eversense XL across Europe,” said Tim Goodnow, President and Chief Executive Officer of Senseonics. “As we go forward in the balance of 2018, we will continue to execute on our commercial strategy and clinical development programs as we work toward label expansion and additional regulatory approvals.”


Revenue was $3.6 million for the second quarter of 2018, compared to $0.8 million for the second quarter of 2017 and $2.9 million for the first quarter of 2018.

Second quarter 2018 sales and marketing expenses increased $2.7 million versus first quarter 2018, to $6.2 million. The increase in sales and marketing expenses was primarily driven by an increase in compensation expense associated with adding additional sales resources to prepare for a United States launch in 2018, as well as to support and expand the distribution of Eversense in Europe.

Second quarter 2018 research and development expense was essentially flat compared to first quarter 2018 and $2.7 million greater than second quarter 2017. The year-over-year increase in research and development expenses was primarily driven by the on-going support of our pre-market approval application including the completion of the Advisory Panel activity.

Second quarter 2018 general and administrative expenses increased $1.4 million over first quarter 2018 and increased $1.5 million over second quarter 2017, to $5.4 million. The year-over-year increase in general and administration expenses was primarily driven by an increase in compensation, legal and other administrative expense associated with supporting operational growth.

Net loss was $32.5 million, or $0.23 per share, in the second quarter of 2018, compared to $12.4 million, or $0.12 per share, in the second quarter of 2017. This compares to a first quarter 2018 net loss of $22.3 million or $0.16 per share. The increase in net loss in the second quarter of 2018 compared to the first quarter of 2018 was driven primarily by a $5.3 million increase in the loss from the change in fair value of the derivative liability and a $4.1 million increase in operating expense. Excluding the change in the increase of the derivative liability during the second quarter 2018, net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2018 would have been $22.3 million or $0.16 per share. Second quarter 2018 net loss per share for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was based on 138.8 million weighted average shares outstanding, compared to 103.7 million weighted average shares outstanding in the second quarter of 2017.

As of June 30, 2018, cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities were $191.9 million and outstanding indebtedness was $72.7 million.


Company management will host a conference call at 4:30 pm (Eastern Time) today, August 8, 2018, to discuss these financial results. This conference call can be accessed live by telephone or through Senseonics’ website.
