MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IRIDEX Corporation (Nasdaq: IRIX) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 29, 2019.
Second Quarter Highlights
“I am pleased to join the IRIDEX team at this time, when our differentiated MicroPulse® glaucoma therapy offers proven safety and efficacy outcomes capable of achieving a broader share in the large population of glaucoma patients,” said David I. Bruce, recently appointed President and CEO. “With a substantial base of our Cyclo G6 laser system placements worldwide, we will focus on both growing adoption by our current users and broadening awareness of the safety, efficacy, and durability of our solution to significantly expand our market penetration.”
Second Quarter 2019 Financial Results
Revenue for the three months ended June 29, 2019 increased 1.2% to $10.4 million compared to $10.3 million during the same period of the prior year. Revenue growth continues to be driven by sales of IRIDEX’s Cyclo G6 products.
Gross profit for the second quarter of 2019 was $4.5 million, or 43.6% gross margin, compared to $4.3 million, or 41.4% gross margin, in the same period of the prior year. The increase in gross margin was primarily due to a decrease in manufacturing overhead spending, partially offset by an increase in manufacturing overhead variances that included an adjustment to warranty expense.
Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2019 were $7.0 million compared to $7.6 million in the same period of the prior year. Lower operating expenses in the quarter reflected a reduction in costs associated with lower headcount and efficiencies gained in adjustments to the Company’s sales & marketing programs, partially offset by an increase in severance costs.
Loss from operations for the second quarter of 2019 was $2.5 million, compared to loss from operations of $3.3 million for the same period of the prior year, contributing to a reduction of net cash burn to $1.6 million for the quarter.
As of June 29, 2019, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $15.6 million and no debt.
Guidance for Full Year 2019
IRIDEX reduced its total revenue guidance for the full year 2019 to a range of $41 million to $44 million from $43 million to $46 million. The revised revenue guidance primarily reflects the following factors:
The Company also revised its expectation for Cyclo G6 system shipments to a range of 375 to 425 from 475 to 525, reflecting its shifting sales focus towards increased physician utilization.
IRIDEX confirms guidance for Cyclo G6 probe shipments in the range of 58,000 to 63,000.
