Ra Medical Systems Reports 2021 Third Quarter Financial Results

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 developing its excimer laser system to treat vascular disease, reports financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and provides a business update.

Recent Operational Highlights

  • Completed the sale of the Pharos dermatology business for net cash proceeds of $3.5 million as part of the continued focus by the company of its resources on the large peripheral artery disease (PAD) market
  • Added two new sites and enrolled 15 additional subjects in the company’s atherectomy pivotal clinical study since mid-August, for a total of 85 subjects enrolled to date in the 100-subject study
  • Continued exploring the potential for the DABRA technology to create shock waves that can fracture arterial calcium, sometimes referred to as intravascular lithotripsy

“We are reporting progress on all key initiatives,” said Will McGuire, Ra Medical Systems CEO. “First, the clinical team drove strong enrollment in our pivotal clinical study to obtain an atherectomy indication. Second, we advanced our engineering efforts to develop more robust, deliverable DABRA catheters and we continue to expect to submit an application to the FDA next quarter seeking regulatory clearance for the first next-gen catheter. Third, I continue to be excited about our research work showing the DABRA laser system can be utilized to create shockwaves of sufficient magnitude to fracture calcium in arteries, commonly referred to as intravascular lithotripsy, which we believe represents a potential to create significant shareholder value.

“Finally, I want to commend the Ra Medical team for executing the divestiture of our dermatology business. As previously stated, we believe focusing our resources on the large and growing market for medical devices to treat PAD is the best path to creating shareholder value. An estimated 19 million to 21 million people in the U.S. have PAD and the market segments we are targeting are projected to exceed $900 million in revenue this year,” added Mr. McGuire.

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- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2021 and September 30, 2020. 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 news 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 loss from continuing operations as adjusted to exclude depreciation and amortization, interest income, interest expense and income tax expense. Ra Medical defines Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA adjusted to exclude stock-based compensation, gain on extinguishment of PPP promissory note and loss (gain) on sales and disposals of property and equipment.
