Solta Medical Reports Third Quarter 2010 Results

HAYWARD, Calif., Nov. 2, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Solta Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: SLTM), a global leader in the medical aesthetics market, today announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2010. Revenue for the third quarter was $24.9 million, an increase of approximately $7.1 million, or 40%, as compared to the third quarter 2009 revenue of $17.8 million. The improved results for the quarter were driven primarily by a year-over-year 40% increase in sales of treatment tips and consumables. Total revenue for the quarter from treatment tips and consumables of $13.4 million rose by $3.8 million as compared to $9.6 million for the third quarter of 2009.

Solta Medical's GAAP reported results for the third quarter of 2010 include non-cash amortization and other charges of $1.3 million related to the acquisitions of Reliant Technologies and Aesthera Corporation and non-cash stock based compensation charges of $0.6 million. The Company provides additional non-GAAP financial measures that exclude these charges and expenses.

The GAAP gross profit for the quarter was $15.7 million or 63% of net revenue. Non-GAAP gross profit for the quarter was $16.7 million or 67% of net revenue. GAAP net loss for the quarter was $1.4 million, or $0.02 per share as compared to GAAP net loss of $6.2 million, or $0.13 per share reported for the third quarter of 2009. Non-GAAP net income for the quarter was $0.5 million, or $0.01 per share on a diluted basis as compared to non-GAAP net loss of $4.2 million, or $0.09 per share reported for the third quarter of 2009. Non-GAAP EBITDA for the third quarter was $0.8 million compared to a loss of $3.8 million in the prior year period.

"We generated a year-over-year improvement in profitability for the quarter of nearly $5 million that was driven by increases in treatment tip revenue of over 30% in North America and nearly 50% in international markets.  We also continue to focus on asset management. Inventory levels have declined from year-end 2009 by $2.7 million to $11.4 million at the end of Q3 and days sales outstanding on receivables remain below 40 days," said Stephen J. Fanning, Chairman, President & CEO. "In addition, with our acquisition last month of CLRS Technology we are excited to be providing consumers with an effective in-home acne solution, CLARO. The acquisition marks an expansion of our personal care initiatives. We continue to make progress in our project with Philips Consumer Lifestyle to develop and commercialize a home-use, laser-based device for skin rejuvenation. We have submitted a 510(k) application to the FDA for the device."

Financial Goals for 2010The company's financial goals for 2010 are as follows:

  • Revenue for the full year 2010 in the range of $110 million to $113 million which represents an increase of 11% to 14%, from revenue for the full year 2009 of $98.8 million. The company previously provided a revenue goal of $115 million for the full year 2010.
  • Generate positive non-GAAP EBITDA for the fourth quarter 2010 and full year 2010. For the nine months ended September 30, 2010, the company generated non-GAAP EBITDA of $7.5 million as compared to a negative $0.8 million for the comparable prior year period.
  • Achieve a non-GAAP gross margin in the range of 66% to 68% for the full year 2010 excluding non-cash amortization charges, non-cash stock based compensation charges, and non-cash acquisition related adjustments. For the nine months ended September 30, 2010, the company's non-GAAP gross margin was 67% as compared to 65% for the comparable prior year period.

  • 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.
