Financial Review

Total sales for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 were $14.2 million, an increase of $2.5 million, or 21.2%, compared to total sales of $11.7 million for the same period in 2014. Total sales for the first six months ended June 30, 2015 were $26.6 million, an increase of 21.4%, compared to total sales of $21.9 million for the same period in 2014. The increase was primarily driven by sales of the Company's breast products in the U.S. resulting from the expansion of the sales organization, increased marketing activities and greater familiarity with Sientra products by board-certified plastic surgeons.

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2015 was $10.3 million, or 72.3% of total sales, compared to gross profit of $8.8 million, or 75.4% of total sales, for the same period in 2014. Gross profit for the six months ended June 30, 2015 was $19.5 million, or 73.1% of total sales, compared to gross profit of $16.5 million, or 75.1% of total sales, for the same period in 2014. The decrease in gross margins was primarily due to manufacturing cost increases and targeted pricing programs in the periods.

Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2015 were $12.4 million, an increase of $2.3 million, or 23.4%, compared to operating expenses of $10.0 million for the same period in 2014. For the six months ended June 30, 2015, operating expenses totaled $24.2 million, an increase of $5.1 million, or 27.0%, compared to operating expenses of $19.1 million for the same period in 2014. The increase was primarily due to greater employee headcount, including the expanded sales organization, in addition to increases in research and development and costs associated with being a public company.

Net loss for the second quarter of 2015 was $3.0 million, compared to $0.2 million for the same period in 2014. For the six months ended June 30, 2015, net loss was $6.4 million compared to $1.2 million in the same period in 2014.

The Company had $89.7 million in cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2015.
