Restoration Robotics™ Reports Financial Results for the Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2017

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Restoration Robotics, Inc. (NASDAQ:HAIR), a leader in robotic hair restoration, announced today financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2017.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2017 Highlights

  • Fourth quarter revenue of $5.9 million, up 13% year-over-year
  • Highest full year revenue to date of $21.3 million, up 37% year-over-year
  • Full year gross profit of $9.1 million, up 77% year-over-year
  • Gross margin of 43% for the full year 2017, up from 33% in 2016
  • Completed initial public offering in October 2017, raising approximately $22.1 million in net proceeds, primarily to fund continued commercialization of the ARTAS® Robotic Hair Restoration System

Ryan Rhodes, President and Chief Executive Officer of Restoration Robotics, said, “We are extremely pleased with our 2017 performance, during which we achieved significant revenue growth and gross margin expansion. We believe that these record results validate our belief that a growing number of physicians worldwide are recognizing the strategic value of integrating the ARTAS Robotic Hair Restoration System into their practices. In 2017, we sold 47 ARTAS Systems, up from 32 in 2016, and now have 253 ARTAS systems worldwide as of December 31, 2017. Our growing installed base allows for increased procedure volume as we continue to expand our commercial infrastructure. Additionally, we believe our increased marketing presence continues to drive greater awareness of the significant advantages of the ARTAS System.”

Mr. Rhodes added, “In October, we completed our initial public offering, raising approximately $22.1 million in net proceeds which we believe will allow us to expand our U.S. and international sales and distribution infrastructure, enhance our marketing initiatives, drive additional regulatory approvals, and further invest in new and existing R&D projects to support future growth. We believe that our success in 2017 has positioned us well to continue to execute on each our strategic initiatives in 2018.”

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2017 Financial Results
Revenue in the fourth quarter of 2017 was $5.9 million, a 13% increase from $5.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. Revenue for the full year 2017 was $21.3 million, a 37% increase from $15.6 million for the full year 2016.

Gross profit in the fourth quarter of 2017 was $2.8 million and gross margin was 47%, an increase from $2.0 million and 39%, respectively, in the fourth quarter of 2016. Gross profit for the full year 2017 was $9.1 million and gross margin was 43%, an increase from $5.2 million and 33%, respectively, for the full year 2016. The increase in gross profit and gross margin for both periods was largely due to increased harvest revenue, reduced procedure kit costs, and improvements in customer support cost efficiency. Additionally, full year 2017 gross profit and gross margin increased from additional system sales.

Operating expenses in the fourth quarter of 2017 were $6.6 million, an 11% increase from $5.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. Operating expenses for the full year 2017 were $26.4 million, an increase of 10% from $24.1 million for the full year 2016. The increase in operating expenses in both periods was largely due to increased investments in the Company’s sales and marketing initiatives and other costs related to our initial public offering.

Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2017 was $(1.1) million or $(.04) per share, compared with a net loss of $(4.9) million, or $(3.06) per share, for the fourth quarter of 2016. Net loss for the full year 2017 was $(17.8) million or $(2.42) per share, compared to $(21.8) million or $(13.54) per share for the full year 2016. Changes in net loss per share for the fourth quarter and full year 2017, as compared to the corresponding prior periods, were largely due to the conversion of preferred shares to common shares in connection with our initial public offering, resulting in an increase in weighted-average shares used in computing net loss per share in 2017 compared to 2016.

Total cash and cash equivalents were $23.5 million as of December 31, 2017.

Investors are cautioned that the forward-looking statements in this document are based on current beliefs, assumptions and expectations, speak only as of the date of this document and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations. Such statements are subject to certain known and unknown risks and uncertainties, many of which are difficult to predict and generally beyond our control, that could cause actual results and other future events to differ materially from those expressed in, or implied or projected by, the forward-looking information and statements. Material factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include, without limitation, the following: whether there is growth in demand for our ARTAS System for use in harvesting hair follicles for transplant; the progress of our commercialization, marketing and manufacturing capabilities; the continuing productivity and effectiveness of our commercial infrastructure and salesforce; our financial performance; our ability to establish collaborations and/or partnerships; the timing or likelihood of regulatory filings and approvals for ARTAS for use in transplanting of hair follicles, and expanding the approved use of ARTAS for use in dissecting hair follicles to include women and individuals without straight brown or black hair; our expectations regarding the potential market size and the size of the patient populations for ARTAS being accurate; whether we are effective in the pricing of ARTAS; whether we are successful in the implementation of our business model and strategic plans for our business and technology; the scope of protection we are able to establish and maintain for intellectual property rights covering ARTAS, along with any product enhancements; our ability to accurately estimate our expenses, future revenue, capital requirements, our needs for additional financing and our ability to obtain additional capital; and developments relating to our competitors and our industry, including competing therapies and procedures. These factors, together with those that are described in greater detail in our Annual Report on Form 10-K that we expect to file on March 5, 2018, as well as any reports that we may file with the SEC in the future, may cause our actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially and adversely from those anticipated or implied by our forward-looking statements.
