Intersect ENT Announces Preliminary Revenue for Third Quarter of 2020

Preliminary Third Quarter 2020 Revenue Expected to be $22.4 to $22.8 Million

MENLO PARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 15, 2020-- Intersect ENT, Inc. (Nasdaq: XENT), a company transforming care for patients with ear, nose and throat (“ENT”) conditions, today announced preliminary third quarter 2020 revenue and provided a business update.

Third Quarter 2020 Overview

  • Net sales are expected to be in the range of $22.4 to $22.8 million.
  • SINUVA expected to achieve strongest quarterly revenue to date of approximately $1.7 million.
  • Cash and marketable securities are expected to be approximately $130 million as of September 30, 2020.

"Our solid third quarter preliminary revenue reflects a continuation of increased sequential sinus surgery procedure demand leading to strong volumes of PROPEL, with notable year-on-year growth of PROPEL in the office setting. This was also the highest quarterly revenue performance for SINUVA since its launch reflecting our improved payer position and emerging strength in ENT in-office procedures," said Thomas A. West, President and CEO of Intersect ENT. “In addition, by closing the strategic acquisition of Fiagon AG Medical Technologies earlier this month, we initiated integration activities that put us on an exciting path to bolster our commercial product portfolio and expand our geographic footprint. While we closely monitor the ongoing effects of the pandemic, we remain well-positioned to sustain sequential revenue growth in the fourth quarter of 2020 and into 2021. Continued growth momentum will be driven by the combination of the ongoing strength of PROPEL, acceleration of SINUVA growth, expansion of our product portfolio with the addition of Fiagon, and further improvement in the execution of our commercial organization."


Based on current elective procedure volumes and referral trends, the Company expects fourth quarter revenue to be 85% to 90% of fourth quarter 2019 revenues. The Company believes this progress will position it to grow revenues in 2021 relative to 2019.

The third quarter 2020 revenue and cash position included in this release are preliminary and prior to the completion of a review by Intersect ENT’s external auditors and are therefore subject to adjustment.

Management will provide additional information in conjunction with the release of its full third quarter 2020 financial results currently scheduled on Monday, November 2.
