Semler Reports First Quarter 2017 Financial Results

PORTLAND, Ore., May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Semler Scientific, Inc. (OTCQB: SMLR), an emerging growth company that provides technology solutions to improve the clinical effectiveness and efficiency of healthcare providers, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017.

"We believe that our products enable our customers to identify when preventive care options are appropriate, which allows them to intervene before events like heart attacks or strokes occur," said Doug Murphy-Chutorian, M.D., chief executive officer of Semler. "Hence, the incentives for our customers to use our products include better clinical outcomes for their patients and better economics for their businesses," he added.

FINANCIAL RESULTSFor the three months ended March 31, 2017, compared to corresponding period of 2016, Semler had:

  • Revenue of $2,055,000, an increase of $554,000, compared to $1,501,000
  • Total operating expense, which includes cost of revenue, of $2,805,000, an increase of $372,000, compared to $2,433,000
  • Cost of revenue of $540,000, an increase of $123,000, compared to $417,000
  • Net loss of $871,000, or $0.17 per share, a decrease of $135,000, compared to a net loss of $1,006,000, or $0.20 per share
  • For the sequential three months ended March 31, 2017, compared to three months ended December 31, 2016, Semler had:

  • Revenue of $2,055,000, a decrease of $261,000, compared to $2,316,000
  • Total operating expense, which includes cost of revenue, of $2,805,000, an increase of $386,000, compared to $2,419,000
  • Cost of revenue of $540,000, an increase of $15,000, compared to $525,000
  • Net loss of $871,000, or $0.17 per share, an increase of $651,000, compared to a net loss of $220,000, or $0.04 per share
  • Cash of $159,000, a decrease of $463,000, compared to $622,000
  • FIRST QUARTER 2017 HIGHLIGHTSThe major accomplishments of the first quarter were as follows:

    1. Increased inventory and manufacturing capacity for our vascular testing product, QuantaFlo™, in preparation for anticipated continued customer base growth in 2017
    2. Received new and expanded orders for QuantaFlo™, which we expect to be installed in the second quarter, resulting in continued sequential quarterly revenue growth as part of our recurring revenue model
    3. Migrated more customers to QuantaFlo™ from its lower-priced predecessor product
    4. Developed additional cybersecurity protections that are intended to aid our customers in complying with regulations regarding safeguarding personal health information

    In 2017, revenue from QuantaFlo™ is expected to grow due to an increasing number of installations, higher average pricing as compared to its predecessor product and the recurring revenue business models that we employ. We have received new and expanded orders in the first quarter that we have installed in the second quarter of 2017.

    Sequential results for first quarter 2017 compared to fourth quarter 2016 showed some decreases due to lower revenue from our fee-per-test customers, who primarily include home risk assessment service providers and who we believe historically conduct more business in the latter half of the calendar year than in the earlier months.  Also in the first quarter of 2017, operating expenses were impacted by higher expenditures, such as those for increased manufacturing and fulfillment capabilities, projects to improve cybersecurity measures and research and development projects.

    "Our immediate objective is to become the standard of care for testing to identify patients at risk for heart attacks and strokes to enable better preventive medical care," said Dr. Murphy-Chutorian.  "The first quarter performance was outstanding in this regard, particularly in growing our order book for fulfillment in the second quarter of 2017," he concluded.
