 Conference call begins at 4:30 p.m. Eastern time today

CARLSBAD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ra Medical Systems, Inc. (NYSE American: RMED), a medical device company focusing on commercializing excimer laser systems to treat vascular and dermatological diseases, reports financial results for the three and 12 months ended December 31, 2020 and provides a business update.

Recent Operational Highlights

  • Enrolled 17 subjects in the company’s atherectomy pivotal clinical trial since mid-November for a total of 30 subjects enrolled to date
  • Completed in-house accelerated aging tests that support shelf life of at least six months for next-generation DABRA catheters
  • Received positive feedback on next-generation, guidewire-compatible DABRA catheter prototypes from vascular physicians at a hands-on workshop
  • Completed Quality Improvement Plan comprised of 116 items
  • Achieved a 44% sequential-quarter increase in revenue from the dermatology segment

“I’m encouraged by our progress in recent months, in particular the uptick in patient enrollment in our atherectomy pivotal trial and our progress on improvements and enhancements to the DABRA catheter,” said Will McGuire, Ra Medical Systems CEO. “We are executing well on our engineering, clinical and quality initiatives, and I am confident that we will continue delivering on our timelines and milestones.”

Fourth Quarter Financial Highlights

Net revenue for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $1.2 million, which consisted of product sales of $0.5 million and service and other revenue of $0.7 million. This compares with net revenue of $1.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, which consisted of product sales of $0.6 million and service and other revenue of $0.8 million.

Net revenue from the vascular segment for the fourth quarter of 2020 was de minimis, compared with $0.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. Net revenue from the dermatology segment was unchanged at $1.2 million for the fourth quarters of 2020 and 2019.

Total cost of revenue for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $1.3 million, compared with $1.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2019.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter of 2020 were $6.9 million, which included $0.8 million in stock-based compensation, compared with $8.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, which included $1.1 million in stock-based compensation. Research and development expenses for the fourth quarter of 2020 were $3.4 million, compared with $0.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. The 2020 quarter included an increase of $2.3 million in personnel, supplies and consulting expenses related to efforts to remedy the inconsistencies in the company’s DABRA catheter performance and expand efforts on the next generation of products. Research and development expenses for the fourth quarters of 2020 and 2019 both included $0.1 million in stock-based compensation.

The net loss for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $10.4 million, or $3.61 per share on 2.9 million weighted average common shares outstanding. This compares with a net loss for the fourth quarter of 2019 of $9.7 million, or $18.04 per share on 0.5 million weighted average common shares outstanding. The outstanding share count reflects the 1-for-25 reverse split of common stock effected in November 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2020 was negative $8.8 million, compared with negative $8.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure presented as net loss before depreciation and amortization expense, interest income, interest expense, income taxes and stock-based compensation. For additional information regarding the non-GAAP financial measures discussed in this news release, please see "Non-GAAP Reconciliations" below.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Ra Medical has presented certain financial information in accordance with U.S. GAAP and also on a non-GAAP basis for the three months and years ended December 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are performance measures that provide supplemental information management believes is useful to analysts and investors to evaluate Ra Medical’s ongoing results of operations, when considered alongside other GAAP measures. These measures are intended to aid investors in better understanding Ra Medical’s current financial performance and prospects for the future as seen through management. Management uses non-GAAP measures to compare the company’s performance relative to forecasts and strategic plans and to benchmark the company’s performance externally against competitors. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures facilitate comparisons with Ra Medical’s historical results and with the results of peer companies who present similar measures (although other companies may define non-GAAP measures differently than we define them, even when similar terms are used to identify such measures). Non-GAAP information is not prepared under a comprehensive set of accounting rules and should only be used to supplement an understanding of the company’s operating results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Ra Medical encourages investors to carefully consider its results under GAAP, as well as its supplemental non-GAAP information and the reconciliation between these presentations, to more fully understand its business. Reconciliations between GAAP and non-GAAP operating results are presented in the accompanying tables of this release.

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. Ra Medical defines EBITDA as our GAAP net loss as adjusted to exclude depreciation and amortization, interest income, interest expense and income tax expense. Ra Medical defines Adjusted EBITDA as our GAAP net loss as adjusted to exclude depreciation and amortization, interest income, interest expense, income tax expense and stock-based compensation.

About Ra Medical Systems
