Iridex Reports First Quarter 2023 Financial Results

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 11, 2023 (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 first quarter ended April 1, 2023.

First Quarter 2023 Highlights

  • Generated total revenue of $13.7 million, an increase of 2% year-over-year
  • Cyclo G6® product family revenue of $3.7 million increased 4% year-over-year
    • 61 Cyclo G6 Glaucoma Laser Systems sold, compared to 56 in the prior year period
    • Cyclo G6 probe revenue increased 6% year-over-year on decreased unit sales of 13,800 probes
  • Retina product revenue of $7.2 million was essentially flat year-over-year
  • Received FDA clearance in February for the new single-spot laser platform for the Iridex 532 and Iridex 577 systems
  • Cash and cash equivalents totaled approximately $11.0 million as of April 1, 2023

“In addition to receiving FDA clearance in February for our second key laser platform, we were pleased to achieve 19% year-over-year growth in U.S. G6 probe revenue,” said David Bruce, President and CEO. “Although we experienced a modest decline in year-over-year glaucoma probe unit sales resulting from continued international distributor order volatility after a record fourth quarter, we saw strength in international purchases of glaucoma systems. We remain confident in our activities to drive adoption and utilization of our Cyclo G6 glaucoma treatment platform. By leveraging our Sweep Management software and increasing awareness of effective dosing recommendations, we expect clinicians to experience strong clinical outcomes and consistency, leading to increased utilization throughout the year.”

First Quarter 2023 Financial Results
Revenue for the three months ended April 1, 2023 was $13.7 million compared to $13.4 million during the same period of the prior year. Total product revenue from the Cyclo G6 glaucoma product group was $3.7 million, an increase of 4% compared to the first quarter of 2022, driven by strong probe ASP growth in the U.S. Retina product revenue in the first quarter was $7.2 million compared to $7.3 million in the prior year, a decrease of 1%. Other revenue, which includes royalties, services, and other legacy products, increased 11% to $2.8 million in the first quarter of 2023 compared to the prior year, primarily driven by higher revenue from Other legacy products.

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2023 remained essentially unchanged at $5.9 million or a 43.3% gross margin, compared to $6.0 million, or a 44.6% gross margin, in the same period of the prior year. The lower gross margin was the result of higher production overhead.

Operating expenses for the first quarter of 2023 were flat at $8.3 million for both the first quarter of 2023 and in the same period of the prior year.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2023 was $2.1 million, or $0.13 per share, compared to a net loss of $2.4 million, or $0.15 per share, in the same period of the prior year.

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $11.0 million as of April 1, 2023. Cash use of $2.9 million in the first quarter included items unique to the first quarter and cash usage is expected to decrease significantly in the remaining quarters of 2023 as inventory levels decrease.

Guidance for Full Year 2023
Iridex reiterated its financial outlook for 2023, expecting 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.
