Iridex Announces Record Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Iridex Corporation (Nasdaq: IRIX), a provider of innovative ophthalmic laser-based medical products for the treatment of glaucoma and retinal diseases, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended October 1, 2022.

Third Quarter 2022 Highlights

  • Total revenue of $14.6 million, a record third quarter revenue, and an increase of 10% over the prior year period
  • Gross Margin was 44.1% compared to 43.6% in the prior year period
  • Cyclo G6® product family revenue of $3.5 million, an increase of 10% year-over-year
    • 13,680 Cyclo G6 probes sold, a 2% increase year-over-year
    • 54 Cyclo G6 Glaucoma Laser Systems sold, compared to 42 in the prior year quarter
  • Retina product revenue increased to $8.8 million or 13% year-over-year
  • Net Cash use of $2.1 million resulting in cash balance on October 1, 2022 of $15.9 million
  • Introduced Sweep Management software for Cyclo G6, privately previewed new suite of laser systems for the treatment of retinal disease and hosted eight physician presentations highlighting the benefits of IRIDEX’s product portfolio at the American Academy of Ophthalmology annual meeting
  • Received FDA Clearance of next -generation Iridex Pascal Scanning Laser System

“Our third quarter results were driven by continued gains in our retina laser portfolio plus a rebound in glaucoma systems placements, demonstrating increased clinical appetite for adoption of our non-incisional laser procedures,” said David Bruce, President and CEO. “We are especially pleased with our retina results, which clearly demonstrate that the investments we have made over the last two years in product and sales improvements are clearly bearing fruit by creating value in the retina business segment. Now, with FDA clearance of our new Pascal platform, we have strengthened our competitive and clinical position even further. We look forward to our first shipments this fourth quarter, and sharing more information in the weeks ahead.

In glaucoma, we are encouraged that the U.S. growth rate increased to 6% and are working to improve our international glaucoma probe utilization, which has lagged our expectations for a second half rebound. We continue to focus on key initiatives to drive utilization globally including increasing awareness of our updated dosing guidance and Sweep Management software, educating clinicians on the benefits of the use of MPTLT earlier in the glaucoma treatment algorithm, adding new users at existing surgery centers, broadening clinical evidence and advancing the China Cyclo G6 launch. We are confident execution of these initiatives can accelerate growth in the U.S. and internationally.”

Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results
Revenue for the three months ended October 1, 2022, increased 10% to $14.6 million from $13.3 million during the same period of the prior year.

Total product revenue from the Cyclo G6 glaucoma product family was $3.5 million, 10% higher than the third quarter of 2021. The year-over-year increase was driven by higher G6 systems sold in the U.S. and OUS and an increase in U.S. probe sales.

Retina product revenue in the third quarter was $8.8 million compared to $7.8 million in the prior year, an increase of 13%, driven by strength in both medical retina and Pascal® system sales. Other revenue, which includes royalties, services, and other legacy products, increased 4% to $2.4 million in the third quarter of 2022 compared to the prior year.

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2022 increased 12% to $6.5 million, or a 44.1% gross margin, compared to $5.8 million and 43.6% gross margin in the same period of the prior year.

Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2022 increased 3% to $8.2 million compared to $7.9 million in the same period of the prior year. The increase is the result of the expansion of sales and marketing programs.

Net loss for the third quarter of 2022 was $1.8 million, or $0.11 per share, compared to a net loss of $2.2 million or $0.14 per share, in the same period of the prior year.

Cash and cash equivalents as of October 1, 2022 totaled $15.9 million. Cash reduction during the quarter of $2.1 million includes net $0.5 million increase in inventories and related pre-orders to mitigate potential supply-chain issues.

Updated Guidance for Full Year 2022
Iridex continues to expect total revenue for fiscal year 2022 to range from $56 million to $58 million, reflecting growth of 4% to 8% over fiscal year 2021. The Company continues to expect Glaucoma Laser System installed base to expand by 225 to 250 systems in 2022. Cyclo G6 probe unit sales are expected to be about 60,000 versus the previous guidance of 61,000 to 63,000.
