PLEASANTON, Calif., May 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ProSomnus, Inc. (“the Company” or “ProSomnus”) (NASDAQ: OSA), a pioneer in precision medical devices for the treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023.
Recent Business Highlights
- Generated year-over year revenue growth of 55% reflecting revenues of $5.8 million for the first quarter compared to $3.7 million during the first quarter of 2022, and in line with strong revenues in the fourth quarter of 2022.
- Continued traction on strategic growth initiatives, including direct sales team expansion in the U.S. and Europe, advancing our next generation device with remote patient monitoring capability toward commercial introduction during late 2023 and the continued generation of clinical data.
- Commenced enrollment in the Severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea (SOS) labeling expansion study, with five centers activated and on track to complete enrollment in 2023.
- Successfully moved to our new headquarters and manufacturing center of excellence. The move quintupled our potential manufacturing capacity, positioning ProSomnus to be able to meet the rapidly growing demand for the company’s precision intraoral medical devices.
- Expanded the Company’s patent portfolio by securing two additional patents covering its digital manufacturing and iterative titration technologies.
“ProSomnus delivered strong operational results and made healthy strategic progress during our first full quarter as a public company,” said Len Liptak, Chief Executive Officer. “ProSomnus generated record revenues for the quarter, underscored by year over year revenue growth that exceeded 50%. These results reflect the growing acceptance of our precision medical devices as a solution for the millions suffering from OSA, driven by investments in our direct sales and scientific marketing capabilities, the robust data supporting precision oral appliance therapy, and the expansion of our digital manufacturing operations.”
Financial Results for the First Quarter of 2023
Revenue for the three-month period and year ended March 31, 2023 totaled $5.8 million, an increase of 55% over $3.7 million in the first quarter of 2022. Seasonal strength during the fourth quarter historically has resulted in sequential quarter-over-quarter softness in results, however the strong revenue performance of the fourth quarter 2022 continued during the first quarter 2023 as revenues of $5.8 million were reported for both periods. The year-over-year increase was primarily driven by increased unit volume due to increased sales and marketing investments and mix shift to the new EVO Products.
Gross margin finished at 53% for the three-month period ended March 31, 2023, consistent with the 54% for the three-month period ended December 31, 2022. The decrease in gross margin compared to 58% for the three-month period ended March 31, 2022, reflects the impact of our strategic investment in the Company’s new manufacturing facility, which was completed during the first quarter of 2023 and prepares the company for future growth. Cost of revenues is driven principally by cost of materials combined with direct and indirect labor and facilities overhead. We expect that these modest period fluctuations will mitigate with the scale of additional volume.
Sales and marketing expenses increased by $0.7 million, or 33%, for the three month ended March 31, 2023, compared to the same period in the prior year and $0.4 million, or 17%, compared to the prior quarter. This increase was driven by additional direct sales personnel reflecting the planned investment in commercial resources that began in late 2022.
Research and development expenses increased by $0.5 million, or 83%, for the three-months period ended March 31, 2023, compared to same period in the prior year and consistent with the prior quarter. R&D expenses reflect the investments being made in developing the next generation remote patient monitoring device, execution of the FLOSAT head-to-head comparison study, and commencement of the label expansion SOS study.
General and administrative expenses increased by $2.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2023, compared to the three-month period ended March 31, 2022, and decreased $2.0 million compared to the prior quarter. The first quarter of 2023 reflects the first quarter of public company operations including an increase in professional and consulting services to facilitate the transition combined with continuing expenses related to the consummation of the business combination during December 2022. The fourth quarter included several transaction-related charges including material stock-based compensation charges that are not expected to recur or, if recurring, are expected to recur at materially reduced levels.
Total other income (expense) totaled an expense of $2.7 million for the three-month period ended March 31, 2023, compared to an expense of $1.1 million for the prior year and income of $8.3 million for the prior quarter. Interest expenses increased modestly to $1.2 million during the first quarter, compared to the same quarter in the prior year and the prior quarter, reflecting the first full quarter of interest on debt entered into during December 2022. Liabilities recorded in connection with the business combination are recorded at fair value with changes in fair value reported as elements of other income (expense).
On March 31, 2023, cash and cash equivalents totaled $11.6 million.
