CAESAREA, Israel, May 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Itamar Medical Ltd. (Nasdaq and TASE: ITMR), a leading medical device and digital health company focused on the integration of sleep apnea management into the cardiac patient care pathway, today reported unaudited financial results for the first quarter of 2021.

“We were pleased to see the momentum from the second half of 2020 continue into new year, enabling us to achieve record first quarter revenue. Our U.S. core sleep business was once again the primary growth driver as home-based care continued to drive adoption and our Cardiology tests reached all-time high,” said Gilad Glick, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Overall, demand for WatchPAT is increasing worldwide, reflecting positive reception to our paradigm-shifting technology. Even as COVID restrictions began lifting, providing an opportunity for PSG testing in sleep centers to return, our sales remained strong.”

“Itamar has a number of exciting catalysts ahead and importantly, we have a significantly strengthened balance sheet in place to deliver on these initiatives. Our team remains focused on driving global market share, advancing our product portfolio, and pursuing additional in-organic growth opportunities,” concluded Glick.

First Quarter 2021 Highlights and Recent Achievements

  • Total revenues were $12.0 million, an increase of 43% year-over-year.
  • U.S. WatchPAT revenues were $8.4 million, an increase of 38% year-over-year.
  • Gained a total of 725 WatchPAT ONE customers since April 1, 2020, after continuing to onboard approximately 32 new WatchPAT ONE customers per month on average throughout the first quarter.
  • Non-IFRS gross margin was 72%, compared to 71% in the fourth quarter of 2020 and 77% in the first quarter of 2020. (See “Use of Non-IFRS Measures” below).
  • IFRS operating expenses include $1.1 million relating to non-recurring share-based payments resulting from the extended exercise period of vested service options from five to ten years.
  • Announced the expected launch of three additions to the Company’s WatchPAT product line at the upcoming SLEEP 2021 meeting.

First Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Revenues increased 43% to $12.0 million, compared to $8.4 million in the same quarter in 2020. Revenue growth was mainly driven by an increase in WatchPAT sales in the U.S., and the increase in total sales in Japan and Europe.

WatchPAT revenues increased 33% to $10.9 million, compared to $8.2 million in the same quarter in 2020.

U.S. WatchPAT revenues increased 38% to $8.4 million, compared to $6.1 million in the same quarter in 2020, driven primarily by WatchPAT ONE sales, as well as WatchPAT Direct sales. Sales from disposables and renewable products, including WatchPAT ONE, comprised approximately 79% of WatchPAT revenues in the U.S. in the first quarter of 2021, compared to 75% in the same quarter in 2020.

Gross profit increased to $8.0 million, compared to $6.3 million in the same quarter in 2020. Gross margin decreased to 67%, compared to 76% in the same quarter in 2020. Gross margin decline was mainly driven by the increase in WatchPAT ONE sales, as well as non-recurring expenses of $0.4 million related to relocating the Company’s production facilities to a new location during the first quarter of 2021. Non-IFRS gross margin (see “Reconciliation of IFRS to Non-IFRS Financial Measures” below) decreased to 72%, compared to 77% in the same quarter in 2020. Non-IFRS gross margin decline was mainly driven by the increase in WatchPAT ONE sales. (See “Use of Non-IFRS Measures” below).

Operating loss was $5.3 million, compared to $2.0 million in the same quarter in 2020. The increase in operating loss was primarily due to an increase in operating expenses, partially offset by the increase in revenues. Operating expense increase was mainly driven by the following:

-$1.1 million relating to non-recurring share-based payments resulting from the extension of the exercise period of vested service options from five to ten years.
  
-Selling and marketing expenses increased 39% to $7.3 million, compared to $5.3 million in the same quarter in 2020, due to the planned expansion of the U.S. sales team into new geographical territories and verticals (37 territories and verticals as of March 31, 2021, compared to 32 territories and verticals as of March 31, 2020), as well as additional sales commissions resulting from the increase in revenues, increase in consulting fees relating to reimbursement in the U.S., Australia and Japan, and an increase in share-based payments, as mentioned above.
  
-Research and development expenses increased 122% to $2.9 million, compared to $1.3 million in the same quarter in 2020, driven by expenses of $0.8 million associated with research and development of the Remote Patient Monitoring or RPM technology (including amortization of intangible assets of $0.3 million) associated with the Spry acquisition, an increase in personnel to support product development, mainly related to our digital health platform, and an increase in share-based payments, as mentioned above.
  
-General and administrative expenses increased 80% to $3.1 million, compared to $1.7 million in the same quarter in 2020, mainly driven by an increase in directors’ and officers’ insurance premium, as well as increased legal expenses, including a commercial dispute in defense of our intellectual property initiated by the Company, and an increase in share-based payments, as mentioned above.

Non-IFRS operating loss (see “Reconciliation of IFRS to Non-IFRS Financial Measures” below) for the first quarter of 2021 was $2.8 million, compared to $1.4 million in the same quarter in 2020. Non-IFRS operating loss excludes approximately $2.5 million in share-based payments; depreciation and amortization of property and equipment and intangible assets; change in provision for doubtful and bad debt; and non-recurring expenses related to relocating our production facilities to a new location, compared to a total of $0.6 million of similar expenses for the same quarter in 2020. (See “Use of Non-IFRS Measures” below).

Net loss for the first quarter of 2021 was $5.5 million, compared to $2.0 million in the same quarter in 2020.

Non-IFRS net loss (see “Reconciliation of IFRS to Non-IFRS Financial Measures” below) for the first quarter of 2021 was $3.0 million, compared to $1.4 million in the same quarter in 2020. Non-IFRS net loss excludes approximately $2.5 million in share-based payments; depreciation and amortization of property and equipment and intangible assets; change in provision for doubtful and bad debt; and non-recurring expenses related to relocating the Company’s production facilities to a new location, compared to a total of $0.6 million of similar expenses for the same quarter in 2020. (See “Use of Non-IFRS Measures” below).

Loss per ADS (basic and diluted) for the first quarter of 2021 was $0.36 compared to $0.15 in the same quarter in 2020. Non-IFRS loss per ADS (basic and diluted) (see “Reconciliation of IFRS to Non-IFRS Financial Measures” below) for the first quarter of 2021 was $0.20, compared to $0.11 in the same quarter in 2020. (See “Use of Non-IFRS Measures” below).

As of March 31, 2021, the Company had cash, cash equivalents and short-term bank deposits of $78.9 million.

Guidance

Full year 2021 revenue is still expected to be in the range of $52 to $53 million, representing growth of 27% to 29% over full year 2020 revenue.

Lease Agreement - Caesarea Headquarters

The Company entered into a new lease agreement, replacing the current agreement, for the lease of approximately 12,500 square feet of office space, as of January 1, 2022, for the Company’s headquarters, research, development and sales offices, in the Northern Caesarea Business Park, Caesarea, Israel.

Use of Non-IFRS Measures

In addition to disclosing financial results prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as issued by the International Accounting Standard Board (IASB), this press release contains Non-IFRS financial measures for operating loss and net loss, which are adjusted from results based on IFRS to exclude: (i) share-based payments; (ii) depreciation and amortization of property and equipment and intangible assets; (iii) change in provision for doubtful and bad debt; and (iv) non-recurring expenses related to relocating production facilities to a new location. Management believes that the Non-IFRS financial measures provided in this press release are useful to investors’ understanding and assessment of the Company’s performance. Management uses both IFRS and Non-IFRS measures when operating and evaluating the Company’s business internally and therefore decided to make these Non-IFRS adjustments available to investors. The presentation of this Non-IFRS financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with IFRS. For further details, see a reconciliation of operating loss and net loss on an IFRS basis to a Non-IFRS basis that is provided in the table that accompanies this press release.
