Cutera Reports Second Quarter 2016 Results

  • Revenue Increased 22% to $27.5 million
  • Eighth Consecutive Quarter of Double-Digit Revenue Growth

BRISBANE, Calif., Aug. 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cutera, Inc. (NASDAQ:CUTR) (“Cutera” or the “Company”), a leading provider of laser and energy-based aesthetic systems for practitioners worldwide, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016.

Key operating highlights and financial performance for the second quarter of 2016, when compared to the second quarter of 2015, were as follows:

  • Revenue increased 22% to a Company record for the second quarter of $27.5 million. This resulted due to strong product revenue growth from the majority of our key products in North America. Gross Margin increased to 58%. This improvement resulted primarily from the leverage caused by our revenue growth.
  • GAAP Net Loss was $1.2 million, which included $1.2 million for a legal settlement and associated fees.
  • Non-GAAP* Net Income was $1.0 million, after adjusting for $1.0 million of non-cash expenses related to stock-based compensation, depreciation and amortization of intangibles, and $1.2 million for a legal settlement and associated fees.
  • Cash used by operations was $308,000, which included $1.2 million of cash paid for a legal settlement and associated fees.
  • Repurchased 251,000 shares of our common stock for $2.6 million from our $10 million board-approved stock repurchase program.

Kevin Connors, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cutera, stated, “We are pleased with our record second quarter revenue, which was the eighth consecutive quarter of double-digit revenue growth. In addition, our gross margin and profitability improved. Our financial performance in the second quarter has the Company on track with our previously stated goals of strong revenue growth and GAAP profitability for the full-year of 2016.”

Product revenue grew by $4.9 million, or 55%, in North America reflecting our strengthening sales team and its ability to increase market share in this growing market. ‘Rest of World’ product revenue declined 9% primarily from our distributor network which experiences quarterly fluctuations. From a product perspective, the Company experienced strong revenue contributions from all major product lines, including its recently released enlightenTM and excel HRTM.

“The tattoo removal market continues to experience rapid growth and we are on track to launch our second generation, market leading, enlighten system during the fourth quarter of this year. It will include a third visible 'true red' wavelength, 670nm, that will provide our customers with unprecedented speed, removal of all tattoo ink colors, a revitalization capability, and an expanded offering to better meet our customer’s needs and budget requirements. We remain committed to advancing our technology and will provide our customers with an attractive path to allow them to upgrade their current systems to include new capabilities.

“We are pleased with our strong revenue growth trajectory. We plan to continue to execute on the various initiatives for bringing new products to market, improving profitability, and expanding our market share in the growing aesthetic medical equipment market,” concluded Mr. Connors.
