SAN FRANCISCO, July 19, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Invuity, Inc. (NASDAQ:IVTY), a leading surgical photonics company, today reported financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2016.

Q2 2016 Highlights

  • Revenue grew 73 percent to $8.2 million compared to revenue of $4.7 million in the 2015 second quarter.
  • Gross margin expansion continued to 74.6 percent compared to 61.0 percent for the 2015 second quarter.
  • Approximately 610 customers purchased Invuity devices in the second quarter of 2016, up from 445 customers in the second quarter of 2015.
  • Approximately 186,000 procedures have been performed using Invuity devices.

"We had a strong second quarter highlighted by 73 percent revenue growth and continued execution on our development plans to expand our advanced photonics technology to additional complementary surgical procedures and modalities,” said President and CEO Philip Sawyer. “We are pleased with our progress to date and excited about our momentum towards the widespread adoption of our unique devices and technologies, which provide meaningful clinical and economic value to surgeons and hospitals.”

Financial Results

Revenue was $8.2 million for the second quarter 2016, compared to $4.7 million for the second quarter in 2015, driven by an increase in active accounts and an increase in the revenue per active account.

Gross margin for the 2016 second quarter was 74.6 percent, compared to 61.0 percent for the same period in 2015. Gross margin has benefited from the recent introduction of our non-conductive polymer based retractors, and from overhead efficiencies due to increased sales volumes.

Total operating expenses for the 2016 second quarter were $15.8 million, compared to $11.8 million in the prior year period. We have continued to invest in our commercial platform consistent with our stated objectives, including the continued ramp up in sales reps and increased product development efforts in support of our new product pipeline.

The net loss for the second quarter of 2016 was $10.1 million, or $0.76 loss per share, compared to a net loss of $9.3 million, or $3.20 loss per share, for the second quarter of 2015.

The Company's balance sheet as of June 30, 2016 showed total cash and cash equivalents of $25.5 million.
