Senseonics Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American: SENS), a medical technology company focused on the development and commercialization of long-term, implantable continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems for people with diabetes, today reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2021.
Recent Highlights & Accomplishments:
Generated first quarter 2021 revenue of $2.85 million primarily driven by sales in the E.U.
FDA review resumed in mid-April with the assignment of a lead reviewer to the Eversense® 180-day PMA supplement application.
"The PROMISE Study: An Evaluation of the Safety and Accuracy of the Next Generation 180-Day Long-term Implantable Eversense CGM System" to be presented in June at the ATTD and ADA conferences and manuscript submitted to major diabetes journal.
Teamed with University Hospitals Accountable Care Organization as the first ACO to adopt Eversense for use in their Medicare population.
Strengthened balance sheet by raising $175 million of proceeds from financing transactions.
Decreased first quarter 2021 operating loss by $32.52 million compared to the prior year period.
Advanced commercial collaboration with Ascensia Diabetes Care
Ascensia assumed full commercialization for the Eversense® CGM in the U.S. on April 1, 2021 and for the Eversense® XL CGM in select European markets on February 1, 2021.
Ascensia completed the hiring and training of 25 Eversense sales professionals in the U.S. and additional support roles including inside sales, clinical support, market access and customer care professionals in addition to the existing commercial organization of over 250 professionals in European countries active with Eversense.
Ascensia launched a U.S. direct-to-consumer advertising campaign for Eversense in early Q2.
"We are very pleased with our start to 2021 including the transfer of worldwide Eversense commercial activity to Ascensia. In the U.S. there are now 25 sales representatives trained and actively calling on existing Eversense accounts and targeting top insulin prescribers to further drive adoption of our CGM system," said Tim Goodnow, PhD, President and Chief Executive Officer of Senseonics. "As part of their U.S. commercial efforts, Ascensia has launched a direct-to-consumer ad campaign aimed at raising awareness of the differentiating capabilities and benefits of Eversense that in most cases is offered at a comparable annual co-pay to patients’ other choices. We are excited that this collaboration enables further patient access to the only long-term implantable CGM solution with a sensor that lasts for months not days."
First Quarter 2021 Results:
Total revenue for the quarter was $2.85 million compared to $0.04 million for the first quarter of 2020. U.S. revenue was $0.31 million and revenue outside the U.S. was $2.53 million.
First quarter 2021 gross profit increased by $20.16 million year-over-year, to $0.53 million. The positive gross margin in the quarter was primarily due to the ability to fill resupply orders with existing written off inventory as existing patient reinsertion rates were above the expectations established in the first quarter of 2020 amid the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
First quarter 2021 sales and marketing expenses decreased by $9.53 million year-over-year, to $1.61 million. The decrease was primarily due to the strategic changes in our go-to-market strategy with the Ascensia global collaboration.
First quarter 2021 research and development expenses decreased by $2.11 million year-over-year, to $5.26 million. The decrease was primarily driven by lower clinical study costs and personnel related expenses.
First quarter 2021 general and administrative expenses decreased by $0.72 million year-over-year, to $4.97 million. The decrease was primarily due to a decrease in personnel related costs.
Net loss was $249.51 million, or $0.68 per share, in the first quarter of 2021, compared to $42.59 million, or $0.21 per share, in the first quarter of 2020. Net loss increased by $206.92 million due to a $239.44 million increase to other expenses primarily related to non-cash accounting charges resulting from the accounting for embedded derivatives related to certain of the company financings, partially offset by a $32.52 million decrease in loss from operations.
As of March 31, 2021, cash and cash equivalents were $178.6 million and outstanding indebtedness was $110.6 million.
2021 Financial Outlook
The company continues to expect that global net revenue to Senseonics for the full year 2021 is expected to be in the range of $12.0 million to $15.0 million.
