Sientra Reports Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results

11/09/2020

Reports record Breast Products net sales of $15.3 million, representing 54% sequential growth and 2 1 % year over year growth

Results driven by U.S. recovery and market outperformance in the core breast products segment

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Nov. 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sientra, Inc. (NASDAQ: SIEN) (“Sientra” or the “Company”), a diversified medical aesthetics company, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020.

Jeff Nugent, Sientra’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Sientra recorded exceptional results in Q3, posting 54% sequential quarter over quarter sales growth from Q2’20, despite the strong headwinds our business and the industry have faced from COVID-19.   The third quarter represented significant improvement in net sales in our Breast Products segment. Our pivot to focus increasingly on our breast business has been validated by our third quarter results and has put us in a position of strength as we continue to take share from competitors. We believe our share gains have been driven by the durability of demand for our OPUS® breast implants and tissue expanders and by our ability to partner with customers through our Drive the Recovery initiatives.”

Mr. Nugent concluded, “Our miraDry business continued to perform in line with our expectations as we are now two quarters into our successful transition from a bifurcated sales model, and our refocus on high-margin bioTip sales.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Sientra has supplemented its US GAAP net income (loss) with a non-GAAP measure of Adjusted EBITDA. Management believes that this non-GAAP financial measure provides useful supplemental information to management and investors regarding the performance of the Company, facilitates a more meaningful comparison of results for current periods with previous operating results, and assists management in analyzing future trends, making strategic and business decisions and establishing internal budgets and forecasts. A reconciliation of non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA to GAAP net income (loss), the most directly comparable GAAP measure, is provided in the schedule below.

There are limitations in using this non-GAAP financial measure because it is not prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. This non-GAAP financial measure 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 Sientra’s financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP and the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measure provided in the schedule below.
