RxSight Reports Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

November 10, 2021 GMT

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., Nov. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (NASDAQ: RXST) RxSight, Inc., an ophthalmic medical device company dedicated to improving the vision of patients following cataract surgery, today reported financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2021.

Recent Highlights

  • Achieved third quarter 2021 revenue of $5.8 million, representing growth of 39% compared to the prior year period and 18% growth over the second quarter of 2021 driven by:
    • Sale of 31 Light Delivery Devices (LDD™s), expanding the installed base to 161 LDDs as of September 30, 2021;
    • Sale of 1,977 Light Adjustable Lenses (LAL®s); and
  • Completed roll-out of the ActivShield™ LAL, with a UV protection layer built into the lens.

“Our third quarter performance was driven by further adoption of our Light Adjustable Lens system, which lets doctors customize their patient’s vision after cataract surgery with unparalleled precision. This unique capability enables achievement of excellent vision over a range of distances at rates that are nearly double that of competitive products, but without reducing quality of vision or increasing unwanted effects, such as glare and halo.” said Ron Kurtz, Chief Executive Officer of RxSight®.  Dr. Kurtz continued,  “During the third quarter we also completed the roll-out of our updated ActivShield LAL, providing additional scheduling flexibility for patients and doctors.”

Financial Results
In the third quarter of 2021, total revenue was $5.8 million, an increase of 39% compared to the third quarter of 2020 and 18% growth over the prior quarter ended June 30, 2021.  The revenue growth as compared to the third quarter of 2020, was primarily due to a 55% increase in the number of LDDs sold and 31% increase  in the number of LALs sold during the third quarter of 2021.

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2021 was $1.3 million, or 23% of revenue compared to gross profit of $0.7 million, or 17% for the third quarter of 2020. The increase in gross profit was due to the increase in the number of LALs and LDDs sold.

Total operating expenses for the third quarter of 2021 were $14.5 million, a 50% increase from $9.6 million in the third quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily driven by higher headcount in sales and marketing to support the growth of the business, costs of operating as a public company and an increase of $0.8 million in stock-based compensation expense.

In the third quarter of 2021, net (loss) was $(12.7) million, or $(0.68) per share on a basic and diluted basis, as compared to a net income attributable to common shareholders of $5.9 million, or $1.55 and $1.13 per share on a basic and diluted basis, respectively in the third quarter of 2020.

Adjusted net (loss) was $(12.2) million, or $(0.65) per share on a diluted basis, in the third quarter of 2021, compared to an adjusted net (loss) of $(32.0) million, or $(8.52) per share on a diluted basis in the third quarter of 2020.

Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments as of September 30, 2021 were $168.3 million and long-term debt was $39.6 million.

Financial Outlook
RxSight projects 2021 full year revenue to be between $21.0 million and $21.4 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements presented under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ( GAAP ), we believe certain non-GAAP measures, including Adjusted net (loss), and Adjusted net (loss) per share, basic and diluted, provide useful information to investors and are useful in evaluating our operating performance. For example, we exclude stock-based compensation expense and the change in fair value of warrants because these are non-cash in nature and excluding these items provides meaningful supplemental information regarding our operational performance and allows investors the ability to make more meaningful comparisons between our operating results and those of other companies.

We believe that non-GAAP financial information, when taken collectively, may be helpful to investors because it provides consistency and comparability with past financial performance. However, non-GAAP financial information is presented for supplemental informational purposes only, has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. In addition, other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate similarly titled non-GAAP measures differently or may use other measures to evaluate their performance. A reconciliation is provided below for each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable financial measure stated in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.

Adjusted Net (Loss) and Adjusted Net (Loss) Per Share

Adjusted net (loss) is a non-GAAP financial measure that we define as net (loss) adjusted for (i) stock-based compensation and (ii) change in fair value of warrants. We believe Adjusted net (loss) provides investors with useful information on period-to-period performance as evaluated by management and comparison with our past financial performance and is useful in evaluating our operating performance compared to that of other companies in our industry, as this metric generally eliminates the effects of certain items that may vary from company to company for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance. Adjusted net (loss) for Series G Common Stock is not impacted by the adjustments.

Reconciliations of net income (loss) to Adjusted net (loss) and the presentation of Adjusted net (loss) per share, basic and diluted, are as follows:
