Sientra Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2020 Financial Results

03/11/2021

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., March 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sientra, Inc. (NASDAQ: SIEN) (“Sientra” or the “Company”), a medical aesthetics company uniquely focused on plastic surgeons, today announced its audited financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2020.

Ron Menezes, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sientra, stated, “We continue to build on our strong fourth quarter results, which were driven primarily by our investment and market outperformance in our core breast products segment. While the augmentation channel remains a key performance driver, we were also able to gain market share in the hospital channel despite pandemic related challenges faced by the reconstruction market. Ahead of further market normalization in 2021, we remain hyper focused on expanding our hospital account base by continuing to capitalize on customer receptivity to the technical differentiation and compelling safety profile of our tissue expander portfolio, grounded by AlloX2®. We also expect to benefit in 2021 from targeted digital efforts directed towards patients and surgeons, an expanded and more productive sales force, and educational peer to peer initiatives that will add new accounts and drive continued share gains."

Mr. Menezes continued, “Our 2021 performance will also be driven by our commitment to establish a culture of focus and accountability, with disciplined investment and execution on commercial, product development and manufacturing initiatives designed to drive revenue and operating leverage. Meanwhile, we expect to reach our goal to achieve break-even contribution margin from miraDry in 2021, as we evaluate the strategic alternatives for the business.”

Mr. Menezes concluded, “Given our progress to date on each of these initiatives, we currently expect breast product segment net sales to grow in excess of 30% in the first quarter 2021 compared to the first quarter 2020.”

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.
