Establishment Labs Reports Record Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results and Raises Full Year Guidance

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. , July 29 /Businesswire/ - Establishment Labs Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: ESTA), a global medical technology company dedicated to improving women’s health and wellness, principally in breast aesthetics and reconstruction, today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021 and provided updated 2021 guidance.

Second Quarter Highlights and Outlook

  • Second quarter worldwide sales of $32.0 million, an increase of 205% year-over-year and a new quarterly record; results are in line with preannounced range of $31 million to $32 million provided on July 12, 2021.
  • 2021 guidance increased to a new range of $122 million to $126 million, an increase of 44% to 49% over 2020; previous 2021 guidance range was $118 million to $122 million.
  • Second quarter operating expenses of $26.1 million, an increase of 55% compared to the second quarter of 2020 as spending returned to more normalized levels following the global disruption in 2020.
  • Total net cash burn of $1.1 million in the second quarter. Cash balance of $76.8 million as of June 30, 2021.
  • Publication of landmark study in Nature Biomedical Engineering showing superior biocompatibility of Motiva® SmoothSilk® implant technology.
  • Marketing and commercial activities with Motiva Ergonomix2® expanding.
  • Commercial launch of Motiva Flora® tissue expander in Europe continuing.
  • Motiva MIA® development and commercialization plans progressing as planned.
  • Timelines for US and China market entry remain unchanged.
  • Held groundbreaking on Sulàyöm Innovation Campus, which will expand manufacturing capacity to approximately 1.9 million implants per year when complete and add new capabilities in R&D, media, and medical education.

“We delivered record second quarter revenue of $32.0 million, which was up 205% from the second quarter of 2020 and 5% sequentially from the first quarter of 2021,” said Juan José Chacón-Quirós, Chief Executive Officer. “Our strong second quarter and first half financial results show that our business is in very good shape. With this momentum, we are raising full year 2021 revenue guidance to a new range of $122 million to $126 million.”

“The second quarter was a productive period for Establishment Labs,” Mr. Chacón-Quirós continued. “The publication in late June of the paper 'The surface topography of silicone breast implants mediates the foreign body response in mice, rabbits and humans' in Nature Biomedical Engineering was a watershed event for women’s health. The paper showed that our bioengineered SmoothSilk surface reduces inflammation and produces the most biocompatible immune response compared to other implants. The findings add to a foundation of clinical and scientific data built over the last decade in the market and explains one of the key reasons our implants perform so well.”

“As our core implant business continues to take share globally, we are expanding availability of our Ergonomix2 implant line and launching into reconstruction with our Motiva Flora tissue expander. In addition, market development work on Motiva MIA is continuing and our expectations for commercialization in 2022 remain unchanged. Our regulatory and commercial timelines to begin selling Motiva implants in the U.S. and Chinese markets are also progressing as planned. Despite the ongoing challenges from the pandemic, we remain on a clearly defined path to become the leader in breast aesthetics and reconstruction, and to expand these markets as we offer safe, differentiated and accessible solutions to women.”

Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Total revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 was $32.0 million compared to $10.5 million for the same period in 2020. Direct sales comprised approximately 44% of total sales, while distributor sales made up the balance.

Gross profit for the second quarter was $21.5 million, or 67.1% of revenue, compared to $7.2 million, or 69.1% of revenue, for the same period in 2020. The change in gross margin was the result of regional mix returning to more normalized levels as well as increased production volumes. Average selling prices in the second quarter were up slightly from the first quarter of 2021.

Total operating expenses for the second quarter were $26.1 million, an increase of $9.3 million compared to $16.8 million in the second quarter of 2020.

SG&A expenses for the second quarter increased approximately $7.3 million to $21.8 million compared to $14.4 million in the second quarter of 2020. The increase resulted from more normalized business practices following disruption from the global pandemic in the year ago period.

R&D expenses increased approximately $2.0 million to $4.3 million in the second quarter compared to $2.4 million for the same quarter a year ago. The majority of the increase was due to a normalization of spending levels and the timing of clinical trial and other expenses.

Net loss from operations for the second quarter was $5.3 million compared to a net loss of $10.5 million in the year ago period.

The Company’s cash balance on June 30, 2021 was $76.8 million. Cash decreased $7.7 million from December 31, 2020 and $1.1 million from the prior quarter, primarily as the result of operating losses and changes in working capital.
