932 Days ago

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Silk Road Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: SILK), a company focused on reducing the risk of stroke and its devastating impact, today reported financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2019.

“Our third quarter results reflect strong execution across our entire organization,” said Erica Rogers, Chief Executive Officer. “With our intense focus on building best-in-class clinical evidence and executing our commercial strategy, TCAR is finding its place prominently in the carotid treatment continuum. While we are still in early in our journey to reach standard of care, we are well positioned for continued progress.”

Third Quarter 2019 Financial Results 
Revenue for the third quarter of 2019 was $17.0 million, an increase of $7.4 million or 77%, compared to the third quarter of 2018. The increase was driven primarily by growing adoption of the TCAR procedure across an expanded base of hospital accounts, trained physicians, and active sales territories.

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2019 was $12.9 million compared to $6.7 million for the third quarter of 2018. Gross margin for the third quarter of 2019 increased to 76% compared to 70% in the third quarter of 2018, driven primarily by leveraging manufacturing overhead costs across a greater number of products sold and higher revenue. 

Operating expenses were $20.3 million for the third quarter of 2019, compared to $11.4 million in the corresponding prior year period, which represents an increase of 77%. The increase was driven primarily by selling, general and administrative expenses related to growth in our commercial team and marketing efforts as well as costs related to being a public company.

Net loss was $8.0 million in the third quarter of 2019, or a loss of $0.26 per share, as compared to $9.0 million, or a loss of $8.49 per share, in the corresponding period of the prior year.

Cash and cash equivalents were $112.3 million as of September 30, 2019.

2019 Financial Guidance
Silk Road Medical projects revenue for the full year 2019 to range from $62 million to $63 million, which represents 79% to 82% growth over the company’s prior year revenue. This compares to previous revenue guidance of $60 million to $62 million.
