In comparing the second quarter of 2014 to the same period of 2013:

  • Sales grew 86 percent to $10.3 million from $5.5 million
  • t:slim Pump shipments grew 64 percent to 2,235 pumps from 1,363 pumps
  • In comparing six months ended June 30, 2014 to the same period of 2013:

  • Sales grew 67 percent to $18.3 million from $11.0 million, which included $1.9 million of t:slim Pump sales recognized in the first quarter 2013 that were shipped in the fourth quarter of 2012
  • t:slim Pump shipments grew 79 percent to 3,958 pumps from 2,215 pumps
  • "In addition to seeing continued, increased adoption of the t:slim Pump and meaningful gross margin improvement in the second quarter, we also made significant progress with our new products in development," said Kim Blickenstaff, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tandem Diabetes Care. "We recently submitted a PMA application to the FDA for the t:slim G4™ Insulin Pump, which integrates our t:slim technology with the Dexcom® G4® Platinum CGM System.  This is an important milestone for Tandem as we work to expand our product portfolio to meet the various needs of the diabetes community."

    For the quarter ended June 30, 2014, gross margin was 34 percent compared to 7 percent for the same period of 2013.  The second quarter of 2014 benefited from improvements in the manufacturing process and increased production volumes.  

    For the second quarter of 2014, operating expenses totaled $21.8 million compared to $14.1 million for the same period of 2013.  The increases in operating expenses are primarily associated with the expansion of commercial operations and non-cash, stock-based compensation.

    Operating loss for the second quarter of 2014 was $18.3 million, compared to $13.7 million for the same period of 2013.  This included non-cash, stock-based compensation of $3.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 compared to $0.5 million for the comparable period of 2013.

    As of June 30, 2014, the Company had $96.3 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments.

    For the year ending December 31, 2014, the Company's guidance is as follows:

  • sales are estimated to be in the range of $48.0 million to $54.0 million, and
  • operating margin is estimated to be in the range of negative 130 percent to 140 percent, which includes approximately $15.0 million to $16.0 million in non-cash, stock-based compensation expense.
