09 Nov, 2015, 16:01 ET from Nevro Corp.

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Nevro Corp. (NYSE: NVRO), a global medical device company that is providing innovative evidence-based solutions for the treatment of chronic pain, today reported financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015.

Third Quarter Highlights:

  • Achieved revenue of $15.4 million in the third quarter of 2015, an increase of 78% as reported, over the same period of the prior year
    • U.S. revenue of $4.5 million for the third quarter of 2015, the first full quarter of commercial availability of the company's HF10 therapy in the U.S.
    • International revenue of $10.9 million in the third quarter of 2015 increased 49% constant currency and 26% on an as-reported basis, both over the same period of the prior year

"The organization made impressive progress in the third quarter toward our goal of helping more patients worldwide with Nevro's innovative HF10 therapy," said Michael DeMane, Chairman and CEO of Nevro. "The first full quarter of availability to U.S. customers exceeded our expectations and we saw continued strong demand from international customers seeking evidence-based solutions for patients suffering from chronic pain."

Third Quarter Financial Results

Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2015 was $15.4 million versus $8.7 million during the same period of the prior year, representing 78% growth as reported. U.S. revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2015 was $4.5 million in the first full quarter of U.S. commercial availability. International revenue was $10.9 million, representing growth of 26% as reported and 49% in constant currency. The increase in international revenue was primarily attributable to continued adoption of the Senza® system. 

Gross profit for the three months ended September 30, 2015 was $9.4 million, up from $5.9 million in gross profit in the same period of the prior year.  Gross margin of 61% for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 decreased from 68% in the prior year period as a result of costs incurred to ramp up operational infrastructure in support of the U.S. commercial launch.  Additionally, while costs were primarily incurred in U.S. dollars, international revenue was negatively impacted by the appreciation of the U.S. dollar, which negatively impacted the overall gross margin for the period.

Operating expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2015 were $27.1 million compared to $12.4 million in the same period of the prior year, representing an increase of 118%. The increase in operating expenses was driven primarily by increased headcount and related personnel costs for the sales and marketing organization in support of the U.S. commercial launch as well as an increase in general and administrative costs associated with being a public company.

Loss from operations for the third quarter of 2015 was $17.7 million compared to $6.5 million for the same period of the prior year.

Worldwide Revenue Guidance for Full Year 2015

The Company expects to report worldwide revenue for the full year 2015 in the range of $59.5 to $61.5 million, which represents an increase from 2014 in the range of 83% to 89% on a reported basis, and in the range of 114% to 122% on a constant-currency basis using foreign exchange rates from the third quarter of 2015.  Previous revenue guidance included only international revenue.  The worldwide full year 2015 guidance now reflects U.S. revenue with the recent commercial launch of Senza in the United States.
