  • Cyclo G6® product family revenue of $4.2 million, an increase of 9% year-over-year
    • 16,400 Cyclo G6 probes sold, a quarterly record and 8% increase year-over-year
    • 79 Cyclo G6 Glaucoma Laser Systems sold, compared to 90 in the prior year period
  • Retina product revenue decreased 11% year-over-year to $8.1 million

  • Cash and cash equivalents totaled approximately $13.9 million as of December 31, 2022

Full Year 2022 Highlights

  • Generated total revenue of $57.0 million, an increase of 6% compared to 2021
  • Cyclo G6 product family revenue of $14.7 million, an increase of 5% year-over-year
    • Sold 59,800 Cyclo G6 probes, compared to 58,200 in the prior year
    • Expanded Cyclo G6 Glaucoma Laser Systems installed base by 237 compared to 243 in the prior year, bringing the total global installed base to over 2,300 systems
  • Retina product revenue increased 2% year-over-year to $31.7 million

“The highlight of our fourth quarter results were record Cyclo G6 probe sales. We are pleased with our commercial and operational execution in the second half of the year resulting in improvements in gross margins and declining operating loss,” said David Bruce, President and CEO of Iridex. “In 2022 we continued to reestablish the foundation for customer adoption and market penetration with our Cyclo G6 glaucoma treatment platform. The broadening use of sweep management software combined with the establishment of the updated dosing recommendations published by our clinical consensus panel, have led users to report improved clinical outcomes and consistency with MPTLT. When coupled with the launch of our new Iridex Pascal platform in the U.S. to be followed by our new single-spot platform just cleared by FDA, we are well-positioned to build momentum in 2023.”

Fourth Quarter 2022 Financial Results
Revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2022 was $15.2 million compared to $15.3 million during the same period of the prior year. Total product revenue from the Cyclo G6 glaucoma product group was $4.2 million, 9% higher than the fourth quarter of 2021 driven by higher Cyclo G6 probe sales. Retina product revenue in the fourth quarter was $8.1 million compared to $9.1 million in the prior year, a decrease of 11%, primarily driven by weaker international capital equipment sales due to strength in the U.S. dollar. Other revenue, which includes royalties, services, and other legacy products, increased 26% to $2.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2022 compared to the prior year, primarily driven by strength in each category.

Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2022 increased to $6.7 million, or a 43.9% gross margin, compared to $6.0 million, or a 39.3% gross margin, in the same period of the prior year. The higher gross margin was the result of higher Cyclo G6 probe sales and higher product mix of U.S. laser systems sales.

Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2022 decreased 4% to $8.1 million compared to $8.4 million in the same period of the prior year.

Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2022 was $1.1 million, or $0.07 per share, compared to a net loss of $2.4 million, or $0.15 per share, in the same period of the prior year.

Full Year 2022 Financial Results
Revenue for the year ended December 31, 2022 increased 6% to $57.0 million from $53.9 million in 2021. Total product revenue from the Cyclo G6 glaucoma product family was $14.7 million, 5% higher than fiscal year 2021 driven by higher Cyclo G6 system and probe sales in the US. Retina product revenue was $31.7 million compared to $31.1 million in the prior year, an increase of 2%, driven by strong capital equipment sales in the U.S., that was partially offset by lower international sales due to the strong U.S. dollar. Other revenue increased 20% to $10.6 million in 2022 compared to the prior year primarily driven by full year revenue recognition from the sale of distribution rights and higher legacy probe sales.

Gross profit for the full year 2022 was $25.4 million on higher revenue and favorable product mix, representing 44.5% gross margin, compared to $22.8 million, or 42.4% gross margin, during the prior year.

Operating expenses for 2022 increased 8% to $32.9 million compared to $30.4 million in the prior year. This increase in operating expenses is primarily a result of broader sales and marketing investments plus additional R&D investments in the PASCAL product line and other new product development initiatives.

Net loss for 2022 increased to $7.5 million, or $0.47 per share, compared to a net loss of $5.2 million, or $0.34 per share in the prior year, which included PPP loan forgiveness of $2.5 million in 2021.

Cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2022 totaled $13.9 million. Cash reduction during the year was $10.0 million, which includes approximately $3.5 million increase in inventories and related pre-orders to mitigate potential supply-chain issues, which are expected to substantially unwind throughout 2023.

Guidance for Full Year 2023
Iridex projects Cyclo G6 probe sales of 65,000 to 67,000 representing approximately 9% to 12% growth over 2022 and to expand the Cyclo G6 systems installed base by 225 to 250 systems. Total revenue for the full year is expected to be $57 million to $59 million.   2023 total revenue guidance represents growth of approximately 3% to 6% after adjusting for an approximate $1.5 million reduction of Other Revenue royalty income resulting from the expiration of licensed patents.
