HAYWARD, Calif., May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Solta Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ: SLTM), a global leader in the medical aesthetics market, today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013. Revenue for the first quarter was $34.5 million, an increase of $2.1 million, or 6%, as compared to the first quarter of 2012. The year-over-year revenue increase consisted primarily of $1.5 million from sales of VASER systems and $2.1 million from sales of treatment tips and other consumables, partially offset by a decline in sales of Liposonix systems in North America.
International revenue for the quarter rose year-over-year by 34% to $20.7 million with Asia Pacific up 40% and EMEA rising by 20%. North America revenue declined year-over-year by 19% to $13.8 million. Revenue from treatment tips and consumables for the quarter was $18.9 million, a year-over-year increase of $2.1 million or 13%, which included year-over-year growth both in North America and international markets of 10% and 15%, respectively.
"Our first quarter was softer than we had planned due to issues that have been identified and corrected," said Stephen J. Fanning, Chairman, President and CEO of Solta. "In North America, our acquisition of Sound Surgical during the critical last month of the quarter led to some internal disruption impacting sales. Additionally, a manufacturing issue with the Liposonix transducer treatment tip adversely affected customer reorders and our ability to demonstrate our Liposonix system to potential new customers in North America. These developments masked the strong revenue growth generated by our international operations as well as the continued top line benefit of our recurring business model."
"Over the past month, we have been rebuilding the Liposonix momentum in North America. At the same time, we are capitalizing on the synergies we envision from the Sound Surgical acquisition. As a result, we fully anticipate improved growth in the second quarter," added Mr. Fanning.
GAAP net loss for the quarter was $2.6 million, or $0.04 per share, as compared to GAAP net loss of $8.8 million, or $0.14 per share, reported for the first quarter of 2012. Non-GAAP net loss for the quarter was $0.8 million, or $0.01 per share, as compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $0.8 million, or $0.01 per share, for same period last year. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $0.9 million compared to $0.6 million for the same period last year.
The Company's GAAP results for the quarter include $3.7 million of amortization, severance, and other acquisition related charges, $1.2 million of non-cash stock based compensation charges, and a $3.1 million credit for the fair value reassessment of the expected earn out payments associated with the acquisition of Liposonix and Sound Surgical. The Company provides non-GAAP financial measures that exclude these charges and adjustments. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is provided in the tables included in this release.
"We expect to achieve a higher amount of cost synergies than originally anticipated from the acquisition of Sound Surgical during the remainder of 2013. Combined with some operating expense reductions recently implemented, we believe that despite the slower than expected first quarter growth rate, we can achieve our profitability targets for the full year," said Mr. Fanning.
Financial Outlook for 2013Based on the first quarter results, the Company updated its financial outlook for 2013 as follows:
Non-GAAP PresentationTo supplement the condensed consolidated financial information presented on a GAAP basis, management has provided non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating income (loss), non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share measures that exclude the impact of acquisition related adjustments, severance costs, acquisition related costs, and stock-based compensation expenses. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with insight into what is used by management to conduct a more meaningful and consistent comparison of the Company's ongoing operating results and trends, compared with historical results. This presentation is also consistent with the measures management uses to measure the performance of ongoing operating results against prior periods and against our internally developed targets. There are limitations in using these non-GAAP financial measures because they are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. These non-GAAP financial measures 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 the Company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP and the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures attached to this release.
