Intersect ENT Reports Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results

MENLO PARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 2, 2020-- Intersect ENT, Inc. (Nasdaq: XENT), a company transforming care for patients with ear, nose and throat (“ENT”) conditions, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020.

Third Quarter 2020 Overview

  • Revenue of $22.7 million in the third quarter of 2020, compared to $24.1 million in the third quarter of 2019
  • Strong sales trend reinforces confidence in fourth quarter 2020 sequential revenue growth
  • Cash, Cash Equivalents and Short-term Investments of $130.7 million

Total revenue was $22.7 million for the third quarter of 2020, compared to $24.1 million for the same period of 2019. This year-on-year decrease was attributable to hospitals reducing elective surgical procedures, and patients limiting ENT office visits, as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Revenue for the PROPEL® family of products for the quarter was $21.1 million. Third quarter revenue for SINUVA® was $1.7 million, the product’s highest quarterly achievement, up 53% versus the same period a year ago.

“We are encouraged that our PROPEL implants are gaining momentum and recapturing procedure volume following the downturn in elective sinus procedures due to COVID-19. Of particular note is the increased use of PROPEL in the office setting, something we intend to build upon,” said Thomas A. West, President and CEO of Intersect ENT. “Over the last few months, we achieved other notable milestones in our recovery, including the acquisition of Fiagon AG Medical Technologies and an agreement with AllianceRx Walgreens Prime for the national specialty pharmacy distribution of SINUVA. Furthermore, a record revenue quarter for SINUVA, combined with the addition of Fiagon and our solid financial position, has us well-positioned to deliver shareholder value.”

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2020 was $14.9 million and gross margin was 65%, compared to gross profit of $19.2 million and gross margin of 80% for the same period of 2019, and up substantially from 25% in the second quarter of 2020. The Company expects gross margin to steadily improve as we continue to ramp production volumes in the remainder of 2020 as, and to the extent, volume and production return to normal.

Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2020 were $26.3 million, compared to $32.6 million in the same period of 2019, reflecting the Company’s cost reduction actions to curtail spending given the uncertainties of the COVID-19 pandemic. R&D expenses decreased to $4.6 million from $6.1 million for the same period of 2019 as the Company delayed starting certain clinical efforts until late 2020 or early 2021. SG&A expenses decreased to $21.7 million from $26.4 million for the same period of 2019.

Net loss for the third quarter of 2020 was $11.5 million, or $0.35 per share, compared to $12.8 million, or $0.41 per share, in the same period of 2019. Adjusted net loss for the third quarter of 2020 was $11.0 million, or $0.34 per share. Adjusted net loss excludes a $1.0 million gain on embedded derivatives and $1.5 million in transaction costs associated with the Fiagon acquisition. There were no adjustments in the same period of 2019.

The balance of cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments as of September 30, 2020 was $130.7 million, compared to $90.6 million at the start of the year. The Company has significantly reduced its costs consistent with its previously announced cash savings target of $40.0 million for the full year of 2020, and it expects to improve its operating cash burn rate as a result of its cost reduction efforts and higher than anticipated revenues in 2020.

Outlook

As previously announced, due to the continued uncertainties resulting from the impact of COVID-19, Intersect ENT withdrew its annual guidance for 2020. Based on third quarter elective procedure volumes and referral trends, the Company expects fourth quarter 2020 revenue to be 85% to 90% of fourth quarter 2019 revenues and to grow revenues in 2021 relative to 2019. The Company believes it will return to a gross margin run-rate in the low-70% range by year end 2020. As a result of the Company’s cost reduction initiatives, higher sequential revenue growth, and capital raise of $65.0 million announced in May, the Company continues to believe it has adequate capital to operate effectively through 2022.

Non-GAAP Measures vs. GAAP Financial Measures

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

The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures 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 these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors as they reflect 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 statements in this press release regarding Intersect ENT’s expectations that continued increases in elective sinus procedures will drive sequential revenue growth for the remainder of 2020, that gross margin will steadily improve as and to the extent volume and production return to normal levels, and that it expects to improve its overall operating cash burn rate as a result of its cost reduction efforts and higher than anticipated revenues in 2020, as well as the statements under the caption “Outlook”, are “forward-looking” statements. These forward-looking statements are based on Intersect ENT’s current expectations and inherently involve significant risks and uncertainties. These statements and risks include: the duration and severity of the COVID-19 pandemic is unknown and could continue, and be more severe, than Intersect ENT currently expects; the unknown state of the U.S. economy following the pandemic; the level of demand for Intersect ENT’s products as the pandemic subsides; the ability of Intersect ENT to effectively and efficiently resume full commercial and manufacturing operations; the time it will take for the economy to recover from the pandemic; and the sufficiency of capital to run the Company through 2022. Actual results and the timing of events could differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking statements as a result of these risks and uncertainties, and others which are described in the Company’s latest Form 10-K and 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) available at the SEC’s Internet site (www.sec.gov). Intersect ENT does not undertake any obligation to update forward-looking statements and expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements contained herein, except as required by law.
