May 5, 2021

SANTA BARBARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 5, 2021-- Establishment Labs Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: ESTA), a medical technology company focused on women’s health, initially in the breast aesthetics and reconstruction market, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021 and provided updated 2021 guidance.

First Quarter Highlights and Outlook

  • First quarter worldwide sales of $30.3 million, an increase of 24% year-over-year and a new quarterly record.
  • 2021 guidance increased to a new range of $118 million to $122 million, an increase of 39% to 44% over 2020; previous 2021 guidance range was $110 million to $112 million.
  • First quarter operating expenses of $22.2 million, a decrease of 4% compared to the first quarter of 2020.
  • Strong cash balance of $78.0 million as of March 31, 2021.
  • Completed enrollment of one hundred patient Motiva Mia IRB approved study; filed Motiva Mia tools for CE mark.
  • Commercial launch of Motiva Flora tissue expander in Europe on track.
  • Timelines for US and China market entry remain unchanged.

“We delivered record first quarter revenue of $30.3 million, which was up 24% from the first quarter of 2020 and 13% sequentially from the fourth quarter of 2020,” said Juan José Chacón-Quirós, Chief Executive Officer. “With our strong first quarter results and continued momentum, we are raising full year 2021 revenue guidance to a new range of $118 million to $122 million, which is an annual growth rate of 39% to 44%.”

“Our singular focus on women’s health and the superior clinical and aesthetic outcomes with Motiva are resonating,” Mr. Chacón-Quirós continued. “We are preparing for the commercial launch of our Motiva Flora tissue expander in Europe this summer, and our regulatory and commercial timelines to begin selling Motiva implants in the U.S. and Chinese markets are progressing as planned. In addition, our initial excitement around Motiva Mia is proving to be justified. We recently completed enrollment of our one hundred patient IRB study in Costa Rica, and feedback from surgeons and women who participated in the case series has been very positive. We believe we are on track not only to become the leader in breast aesthetics and reconstruction, but to expand these markets as we offer safe, differentiated and accessible solutions to women.”

First Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Total revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 was $30.3 million compared to $24.5 million for the same period in 2020. Direct sales comprised approximately 42% of total sales, while distributor sales made up the balance.

Gross profit for the first quarter was $20.1 million, or 66.2% of revenue, compared to $15.5 million, or 63.2% of revenue, for the same period in 2020. The year over year increase was due to higher revenue in the quarter. Average selling prices in the first quarter were also up slightly from the same period a year ago.

Total operating expenses for the first quarter were $22.2 million, a decrease of $1.0 million compared to $23.2 million in the first quarter of 2020.

SG&A expenses for the first quarter decreased $0.8 million to $18.1 million compared to $19.0 million in the first quarter of 2020. The majority of the decrease resulted from consulting and personnel related costs.

R&D expenses decreased $0.2 million to $4.0 million in the first quarter compared to $4.2 million for the same quarter a year ago. This decrease was due to the timing of clinical trial and other planned expenses.

Net loss from operations for the first quarter was $2.1 million compared to a net loss of $7.7 million in the year ago period.

The Company’s cash balance on March 31, 2021 was $78.0 million. Cash decreased $6.6 million from December 31, 2020, primarily as the result of the operating loss in the quarter and changes in working capital.
