Conference call and webcast, today at 4:30 pm Eastern Time
HORSHAM, Pa., Nov. 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (NASDAQ:SSKN) STRATA Skin Sciences, Inc. (“STRATA”) a medical technology company in Dermatology and Plastic Surgery dedicated to developing, commercializing and marketing innovative products for the treatment of dermatologic conditions, today reported financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2017.
Third Quarter and Recent Corporate Highlights
- Third quarter total revenues were $7.5 million, a decrease of 3.7% year-over-year; year to date revenues of $23.5 million, an increase of $328 thousand over the same period for 2016.
- Recurring XTRAC® revenues were $5.7 million, or 76.5% of total revenues. Recurring XTRAC revenues decreased 7.8% year-over-year.
- Installed base of XTRAC systems in the U.S. expands to 776 systems placed, up 2.1% from 760 at the end of the third quarter 2016.
- Recurring revenues were negatively impacted by hurricanes in Florida, Georgia, and Texas.
Frank McCaney, President and Chief Executive Officer of STRATA, stated, “A key strategic goal for the Company is to improve our current business and, in order to set the stage for a stronger 2018, we enacted a number of initiatives to improve the long term health of the company and to enhance our ability to grow. These decisions had an impact on the third quarter and will continue though this year. Among the initiatives was a restructuring of our sales organization, including the hiring of new regional sales directors as well as reps with proven track records in aesthetic capital sales. We also shifted our advertising focus from radio and TV to web and social media. The Company stopped radio and TV advertising early in the second quarter and very recently completed our first social media initiative in a limited rollout in one market.”
“STRATA made the proactive decision to remove XTRAC systems from underperforming practices in the third quarter,” added Mr. McCaney. “These systems will be redeployed in practices which we believe have better revenue potential using an improved qualification program. Our goal is to boost the revenue per system and the profitability of dermatologists’ business over time. We are continuing to focus on increasing the treatment volume of our existing systems by having our salesforce work with dermatologists to improve their understanding of the value of XTRAC to their practices, including dermatological conditions that we have not promoted previously.”
One of our newer products is Nordlys. “We believe that Nordlys is a best-in-class aesthetic platform laser system,” continued Mr. McCaney. “The arena for this type of product is growing but is competitive. We have recently hired seasoned capital sales professionals to focus on selling the Nordlys system, complementing STRATA’s traditional salesforce, which focuses primarily on XTRAC recurring revenue. We expect to close a number of Nordlys sales in the fourth quarter and build out our pipeline for 2018 with our new sales structure. We are also seeing early acceptance of the benefits of the STRATAPEN product and later in the fourth quarter, we will begin a promotion with our new partner MedResults Network (MRN). These Nordlys and STRATAPEN efforts are consistent with our goal to become The Dermatological and Aesthetic Practice Partner, leveraging our existing infrastructure, including our current sales presence, strong field service group, reimbursement capabilities and call center.”
“STRATA’s balance sheet and financial flexibility have been enhanced by the recent exchange of our convertible debt obligations for new shares of convertible preferred stock. The exchange underscores the Company’s efforts to improve the long term health of the business and will have the benefit of reducing our interest expense by over $4 million over the next four years, enhancing our ability to grow the business,” concluded Mr. McCaney.

To supplement the Company’s consolidated financial statements, prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”), the Company provides certain non-GAAP measures of financial performance. These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA.
The Company’s reference to these non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to results prepared under current accounting standards, but are not a substitute for, nor superior to, GAAP results. These non-GAAP measures are provided to enhance investors' overall understanding of our current financial performance and to provide further information for comparative purposes.
Specifically, the Company believes the non-GAAP measures provide useful information to both management and investors by isolating certain expenses, gains and losses that may not be indicative of the Company’s core operating results and business outlook. In addition, the Company believes non-GAAP measures enhance the comparability of results against prior periods.
