“We are pleased with our second quarter accomplishments which include continued revenue growth and confirmation that our XprESS technologies are helping improve patient outcomes and building value for surgeons and their patients,” said Robert White, President and Chief Executive Officer of Entellus Medical. “We are encouraged by the growing trend of office-based procedures and intend to continue to seek opportunities that support this shift.”

Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results

Revenue for the second quarter increased 23% to $18.7 million from $15.2 million during the same period of the prior year. The growth in revenue was attributable to an increase in sales of the Company’s XprESS family of products through broader account penetration, both in the OR and the office, and increased sales of new products.

Gross margin for the second quarter of 2016 was 76.2%, compared to 78.0% for the same period in 2015. Gross margin was impacted by changes in sales mix resulting from the Company’s new product lines, continued geographic expansion and investment in expanded capacity for anticipated future growth.

Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2016 were $18.8 million, an increase of 32.4% compared to $14.2 million for the same period of the prior year. The increase in operating expenses was primarily due to increased compensation and other employee-related expenses, including stock-based compensation, resulting from expansion of the Company’s sales and finance staff.

Net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 was $5.0 million, or $0.27 per share, compared with net loss of $2.9 million, or $0.15 per share, for the same period of the prior year. Entellus Medical ended the second quarter of 2016 with $46.1 million in cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments.

2016 Financial Outlook

Entellus Medical expects third quarter 2016 revenue will range from approximately $17.3 million to $18.3 million, representing growth of 17% to 24% versus the third quarter in the prior year and that gross margin will be in a range of 75% to 77% for the third quarter of 2016. Third quarter net loss is expected to be in the range of $6.5 million to $8.5 million.

Entellus Medical expects full year 2016 revenue will be in a range of $74 million to $77 million, representing growth of 20% to 25% annually, and that gross margin will be in a range of 75% to 77% for the full year 2016. This compares to the Company's previous revenue expectation for 2016 of $73 million to $77 million, previous growth expectations of 19% to 25% annually, and previous gross margin expectations for 2016 of 75% to 77%. Full year 2016 net loss is now expected to be in a range of $21 million to $28 million. This compares to the Company's previous expectations for net loss in a range of $21 million to $29 million.
