Sientra Reports Record Third Quarter 2021 Revenue for Continuing Operations

11/10/2021
Revenue growth of 28% Year Over Year

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Nov. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sientra, Inc. (NASDAQ: SIEN) (“Sientra” or the “Company”), a medical aesthetics company focused on enhancing lives by advancing the art of plastic surgery, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Third Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights

  • Net sales of $19.6 million, representing growth of 28% over the third quarter of 2020, excluding discontinued operations
  • Cash of $66.1 million as of September 30, 2021
  • Updated full year 2021 revenue guidance to range from $76 to $78 million, representing 38%-42% year-over-year growth, exclusive of discontinued operations

Recent Business Highlights

  • Added approximately 300 accounts, achieving a new record base of nearly 2,700 accounts
  • Generated approximately 17,000 year-to-date lead referrals to plastic surgeons through social and digital marketing awareness-building strategies
  • Publication of a study by Stanford University’s School of Medicine confirming unique clinical benefits of Sientra’s Allox2 in managing seromas
  • Jointly launched Reshaping Lives: Full Circle™ with Mission Plasticos to provide reconstructive breast surgery for post-mastectomy women living in poverty
  • Completed move of distribution center from Santa Barbara, CA to Franklin, WI

Ron Menezes, Sientra’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “These results reflect the positive momentum that we have seen over the past five quarters, with a sole focus on providing the safest, most advanced products to plastic surgeons and their patients. Growth this quarter was primarily driven by our reconstruction business, which grew 33% over the third quarter of 2020. In addition, our market data shows breast augmentation is at an all-time four year high and that 74% of women that are considering breast implants are planning to do so within a year.

With an unwavering commitment to continued execution on our strategic initiatives, I believe that Sientra is in the best position ever as we head into the fourth quarter and 2022,” concluded Menezes.

Third Quarter 2021 Financial Review
Total revenues from continuing operations were $19.6 million as compared to $15.3 million in third quarter 2020, representing year-over-year growth of 28%.

Gross profit was $10.6 million, or 54% of sales, compared to gross profit of $8.2 million, or 53.6% of sales in the third quarter of 2020. Product gross margins improved during the current period but were offset by the cost of our distribution center move from Santa Barbara, California to Franklin, Wisconsin.

Operating expenses for the third quarter 2021 were $22.3 million compared to $17.8 million for the same period in 2020. The increase in current period operating expense is attributed to an increase in sales headcount and new marketing programs as well as an increase in G&A related to the Reshaping Lives: Full Circle launch and the cost related to the company’s Information Systems transition.

Operating loss from continuing operations was $11.7 million, compared to an operating loss of $9.5 million in third quarter 2020.

Other income, which includes interest expense, change in fair value of derivative liability and other income, was $40.2 million as compared to $8 million in Q3 of 2020. The $32.2 million dollar increase in the company’s current period is attributed to a positive change in fair value of derivative liability of $25.5 million following the amendment of its Convertible Note, and the relief of its Paycheck Protection Plan loan of $6.7 million.

Net income was $28.4 million compared to a loss of $5.8 million, for the same period in 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA was a $8.3 million dollar loss as compared to a $7.2 million loss for the same period in 2020.

Net cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2021, were $66.1 million.

Financial Guidance for Continuing Operations
For the full year 2021, the Company expects revenue to be in a range of $76 million to $78 million, representing growth of 38% to 42% over 2020, exclusive of discontinued operations. This compares to previous guidance of $74 million to $78 million.

The Company expects operating expenses for the full year 2021 to be in the range of $85 - $90 million.

Conference Call

The dial-in numbers are (844) 464-3933 for domestic callers and (765) 507-2612 for international callers. The conference ID is 8785834. A live webcast of the conference call will be available on the Investor Relations section of the Company's website at www.sientra.com. The webcast will be archived on the website following the completion of the call.  

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Sientra has supplemented its US GAAP net income (loss) with a non-GAAP measure of Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP earnings per share. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide 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) and non-GAAP loss per share, the most directly comparable GAAP measures, 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.
