HAYWARD, Calif., May 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Solta Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ: SLTM), a global leader in the medical aesthetics market, today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011. Revenue for the first quarter was $26.5 million, a 2% increase as compared to the first quarter of 2010. Revenue from the sales of treatment tips and consumables grew 18% as compared to the first quarter of 2010, and accounted for 63% of total revenue. As a result of the strong treatment tip and consumable revenue growth, gross margin as a percentage of revenue on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis rose year-over-year by over 350 basis points to 68% and 72%, respectively.
GAAP net loss for the quarter was $1.0 million as compared to GAAP net loss of $1.9 million reported for the first quarter of 2010. Non-GAAP net income for the quarter was $0.7 million or $0.01 per diluted share as compared to non-GAAP net income of $0.8 million, or $0.01 per diluted share for same period last year.
Solta Medical's GAAP results for the first quarter include non-cash amortization and other acquisition related charges of $1.1 million and non-cash stock based compensation charges of $0.7 million. The Company provides additional non-GAAP financial measures that exclude these charges and expenses. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is provided in the tables included in this release.
"The strength of our unique recurring revenue business model was evident again in our first quarter performance," said Stephen J. Fanning, Chairman, President & CEO. "Our Thermage®, Fraxel®, and Isolaz® brands continue to be the aesthetic procedures that consumers request by name and the procedures physicians perform by choice. At the same time, our first quarter performance was impacted by the earthquake and resulting crises in Japan."
"During the second quarter, we plan to begin initial shipments outside North America of our innovative, new Clear + Brilliant product as well as expand the distribution of our personal care acne device, CLARO®," added Mr. Fanning.
Financial Outlook for 2011The company reiterated its financial outlook for the full year 2011 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 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.
