2018 Net Sales of $68.1 Million, Growth of 86% YoY on a GAAP Basis and 46% YoY Pro Forma

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., March 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sientra, Inc. (NASDAQ: SIEN), a medical aesthetics company (“Sientra” or the “Company”), announced today its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2018.

Jeff Nugent, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Sientra, commented, “Throughout 2018, we continued to drive robust growth across the business, achieving record net sales of $68.1 million and pro forma net sales growth of 46% compared to full year 2017. In the fourth quarter, our sales grew 72% year-over-year to $19.0 million, the highest quarterly net sales in the company’s history, further demonstrating the underlying momentum of the business and the benefits of Sientra’s diversification strategy.”

Mr. Nugent added, “In our first full year with miraDry, we fully integrated the business, invested strategically in its commercial organization, launched the improved miraDry fresh procedure protocol, and reported four consecutive quarters of sequential net sales growth. With regards to Breast Products, we achieved numerous milestones in 2018, all of which demonstrate our commitment to patient safety and continued innovation for the benefit of our plastic surgeon partners and their patients. In addition to FDA’s approval of Sientra’s PMA supplement for our new Wisconsin facility, we launched the industry-leading Sientra Platinum20™ warranty, which is grounded in the strong confidence we have in our 10-year clinical data. We also opened our state-of-the-art Sientra Lab and Innovation Center of Excellence (SLICE) and submitted our breast implant Medical Device License Application to Health Canada.”

Mr. Nugent concluded, “Last year’s accomplishments were pivotal to positioning Sientra for sustainable long-term growth across both our business segments. I am encouraged by the progress we have made in establishing Sientra as a leading, diversified global partner to aesthetic physicians and I am looking forward to continuing this momentum in 2019.”

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2018 Financial Review
Total net sales for the fourth quarter 2018 were $19.0 million, an increase of 72% compared to total net sales of $11.1 million for the same period in 2017. Total net sales for full year 2018 of $68.1 million increased 86% compared to GAAP net sales of $36.5 million for 2017 and 46% compared to pro forma net sales of $46.7 million for 2017. Pro forma net sales assume the miraDry acquisition was completed on January 1, 2017.

Net sales for the Breast Products segment totaled $10.4 million in the fourth quarter 2018, a 28% increase compared to $8.2 million for fourth quarter 2017. Net sales for the Breast Products segment totaled $37.0 million for the full year 2018, representing an 18% increase compared to $31.5 million for the full year 2017. Breast Products sales growth was primarily driven by the continued improvement in implant supply levels and the strong performance of the tissue expander portfolio.

Net sales for the miraDry segment totaled $8.6 million in the fourth quarter 2018, a 196% increase compared to $2.9 million for the fourth quarter 2017. miraDry net sales for full year 2018 of $31.1 million increased 515% compared to GAAP net sales of $5.1 million for 2017 and 104% compared to pro forma net sales of $15.3 million for 2017. miraDry sales growth was primarily driven by strong system placements and consumables growth internationally as well as continued traction in the United States.

Gross profit for the fourth quarter 2018 was $11.4 million, or 59.7% of sales, compared to gross profit of $5.3 million, or 48.1% of sales, for the same period in 2017. Gross profit for the full year 2018 was $41.3 million, or 60.6% of sales, compared to gross profit of $22.4 million, or 61.2% of sales, for full year 2017. Changes in consolidated gross margin were driven by the overall mix between Breast Products and miraDry, as well as the geographic and capital versus consumable mix within miraDry.

Operating expenses for the fourth quarter 2018 were $35.7 million, compared to $22.7 million of expenses for the same period in 2017. For the full year 2018, operating expenses were $121.1 million, compared to $85.3 million of expenses for full year 2017. Operating expenses for the quarter increased due to investments in sales and marketing supporting the progress achieved in scaling the miraDry commercial organization.

Net loss for the fourth quarter 2018 was ($24.6) million, or ($0.86) per share, compared to a net loss of ($17.8) million, or ($0.92) per share, for the same period in 2017. Net loss for the full year of 2018 was ($82.6) million, or ($3.25) per share, compared to a net loss of ($64.0) million, or ($3.34) per share, for the same period in 2017.

On a non-GAAP basis, the Company reported an adjusted EBITDA loss of ($19.5) million and ($60.0) million for the fourth quarter and full year 2018, respectively, compared to a loss of ($13.9) million and ($41.0) million for the fourth quarter and full year 2017, respectively. The year-over-year change in adjusted EBITDA loss can primarily be attributed to the inclusion of miraDry for the full year of 2018.

Net cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2018 were $86.9 million, compared to $103.0 million at the end of third quarter 2018.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Sientra has supplemented its US GAAP net income (loss) with a non-GAAP measure of Adjusted EBITDA. Management believes that this non-GAAP financial measure provides useful supplemental information to management and investors regarding the performance of the Company, facilitates a more meaningful comparison of results for current periods with previous operating results, and assists management in analyzing future trends, making strategic and business decisions and establishing internal budgets and forecasts. A reconciliation of non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA to GAAP net income (loss), the most directly comparable GAAP measure, is provided in the schedule below.

There are limitations in using this non-GAAP financial measure because it is not prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. This non-GAAP financial measure should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financial measures. Investors and potential investors should consider non-GAAP financial measures only in conjunction with Sientra’s financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP and the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measure provided in the schedule below.
