Intersect ENT Reports First Quarter 2021 Financial Results

— Increases 2021 Revenue Guidance to $117 Million to $121 Million

MENLO PARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 10, 2021-- Intersect ENT, Inc. (Nasdaq: XENT), a global ear, nose and throat (“ENT”) medical technology leader dedicated to transforming patient care, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021.

First Quarter 2021 Overview

  • Revenue of $24.3 million in the first quarter of 2021, up 23%, compared to $19.8 million in the first quarter of 2020.
  • Strong quarterly SINUVA revenue of $2.4 million.
  • Global Balloon and Navigation portfolio generated revenue of $1.5 million.
  • Cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash, and short-term investments were $89.0 million as of March 31, 2021.
  • Increases 2021 full-year revenue guidance to $117 million to $121 million.

Total revenue was $24.3 million for the first quarter of 2021, up 23%, compared to $19.8 million for the same period of 2020. This year-on-year increase was attributable to increased PROPEL® revenue resulting from the reduced impact on demand from the COVID-19 pandemic on elective surgical procedures. In addition, the Company generated increased SINUVA revenue from improved access and coverage and a shift in sinus procedures towards ambulatory surgery centers and the office setting of care. Revenue for the PROPEL® family of products for the quarter was $20.4 million. First quarter revenue for SINUVA® was $2.4 million, up significantly from the same period a year ago. The Company also realized $1.5 million of revenue from the newly added Global Balloon and Navigation product portfolio.

“We are pleased with our first quarter results highlighted by the continued resilience in our PROPEL franchise despite the impact of COVID-related headwinds in the quarter. The continued and growing momentum in our SINUVA business is also a highlight of the quarter. PROPEL and SINUVA performance underscore the differentiated value proposition of our proprietary localized drug delivery sinus offerings and their clinical appropriateness across all settings of care,” said Thomas A. West, President and CEO of Intersect ENT. “Looking ahead, we anticipate sequential improvement throughout our business in the second quarter and beyond based on positive trends for elective and office-based sinus procedures. These encouraging trends, combined with our first quarter performance and a broader product portfolio inclusive of navigation and sinus balloons, give us confidence to raise our 2021 revenue guidance. Moreover, we believe Intersect ENT is now well-positioned to achieve sustainable year-on-year growth.”

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2021 was $15.9 million and gross margin was 65%, compared to gross profit of $13.4 million and gross margin of 68% for the same period of 2020. Gross margin was unfavorably impacted by amortization of intangible assets, production related period costs, and project costs, collectively representing approximately 4% of revenues.

Operating expenses for the first quarter of 2021 were $34.4 million, compared to $31.3 million in the same period of 2020. R&D expenses increased to $6.4 million from $5.1 million for the same period of 2020 which reflects increased clinical activities and expenses associated with the Company’s newly acquired Fiagon portfolio, and other related expenses. SG&A expenses increased to $28.1 million from $26.2 million for the same period of 2020 due to the consolidation of Fiagon and costs associated with the integration of Fiagon.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2021 was $20.0 million, or $0.61 per share, compared to $17.5 million, or $0.54 per share, in the same period of 2020. Adjusted net loss for the first quarter of 2021 was $16.9 million, or $0.51 per share. Adjusted net loss excludes a $0.3 million loss on embedded derivatives, $0.9 million of intangible asset amortization expense, and $1.9 million in integration costs associated with the Fiagon acquisition. There were no adjustments in the same period of 2020.

The balance of cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash, and short-term investments as of March 31, 2021 was $89.0 million, compared to $105.5 million at the start of the year.

Subsequent Event

On April 26, 2021, Intersect ENT was notified by a European Notified Body of deficiencies in certain policies and processes after an audit at the Company’s Menlo Park, CA facility. As a result of the deficiencies, the Company’s CE Marks for PROPEL and PROPEL Mini have been suspended while it completes necessary remediation activities and submits the response. During the suspension, the Company remains permitted to sell existing inventory located in the European Union. On May 7, 2021, Intersect ENT completed its formal response and will be submitting that response in a filing to the Notified Body on May 10, 2021. Prior to that filing, the Company received positive feedback relative to the submission content from the inspector and the Company expects to meet all regulatory filing requirements in a timely manner. While the CE Marks are suspended, Intersect ENT believes it remains compliant in all other jurisdictions and no other aspects of the business, including the Fiagon products, have been impacted.

Guidance

With the ongoing improvement in the COVID-19 environment, the rebound in elective procedures and gradual opening of the hospital setting of care, and the opportunity to leverage its broader portfolio of product offerings, Intersect ENT is raising its full year 2021 revenue guidance from a range of $116 million - $120 million to a range of $117 million - $121 million. The Company’s full year 2021 guidance reflects the expected further recovery of COVID-impacted elective sinus procedures supported by a significant increase in the number of individuals vaccinated against COVID-19. Full year 2021 gross margin is expected to be in the low-to-mid 70s. Based on current expectations of the operating environment in 2021 and 2022, the Company believes it has adequate cash and other resources to operate well into 2022.

Non-GAAP Measures vs. GAAP Financial Measures

This release contains a financial measure, adjusted net loss, that is not calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). A reconciliation of adjusted net loss to net loss, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, is provided in the financial schedules portion at the end of this press release. Adjusted net loss differs from net loss and may differ from non-GAAP financial measures with the same or similar captions that are used by other companies. As such, adjusted net loss should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, net loss calculated in accordance with GAAP.

The Company uses adjusted net loss to analyze its operating performance and future prospects, develop internal budgets and financial goals, and to facilitate period-to-period comparisons. The Company believes that adjusted net loss is useful to investors as it reflects an additional way of viewing aspects of its operations that, when viewed with its GAAP results, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting its business.

Forward-Looking Statements

The forward-looking statements in this press release are based on Intersect ENT's current expectations and inherently involve significant risks and uncertainties.
