WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NeuroMetrix, Inc. (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: NURO), today reported financial and business highlights for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.
The Company operates in two primary markets - wearable therapeutic technology and point-of-care tests. Its newest product is Quell™, an over-the-counter wearable pain relief device that utilizes proprietary non-invasive neurostimulation technology to provide relief from chronic pain. The device is designed for users with conditions such as diabetic nerve pain, low back and leg pain, fibromyalgia and pain associated with osteoarthritis. This advanced wearable device is lightweight and can be worn during the day while active, and at night while sleeping. It has been cleared by the FDA for treatment of chronic pain without a prescription. Users of the device have the option of using their smartphone to automatically track and personalize their pain therapy. The Company's SENSUS® wearable device offers similar therapy for chronic pain and requires a doctor’s prescription. The Company’s point-of-care neuropathy test, DPNCheck®, addresses an unmet medical need for accurate and cost-effective screening, diagnosing and monitoring of peripheral neuropathies such as diabetic peripheral neuropathy.
- Quell commercial launch was achieved on schedule in June 2015. Between the launch and quarter-end, approximately 2,600 Quell devices and nearly 1,000 electrode reorders were shipped to customers. Q2 shipments fulfilled order backlog from the Indiegogo pre-order campaign in March/April, orders from stocking physicians, and orders placed through the quellrelief.com website.
- The Company reported Q2 revenue of $1.2 million plus an additional $0.6 million of deferred revenue related to Quell shipments. Combined, these total approximately $1.8 million in revenue-related product shipments during Q2. By comparison, revenue in Q2 2014 was $1.3 million. The Q2 Quell shipments will be recorded in revenue during Q3 after the Company has gained sufficient experience with product returns for valuation purposes.
- Cumulative device shipments of the Company’s wearable technology, Quell plus SENSUS, passed the 10,000 milestone during Q2. Approximately 650 SENSUS devices plus 5,800 electrode packages were shipped in Q2.
- DPNCheck biosensor shipments during Q2 2015 totaled nearly 29,000 tests, an increase of 17% from Q2 2014.
- An underwritten public equity offering for $14.7 million was completed during May 2015. The Company realized net proceeds of $10.1 million after a $3.2 million repurchase of preferred stock and after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and offering expenses.
“Quell commercial launch during Q2 marked the achievement of our second major milestone for 2015, the first being the unveiling of Quell at the Consumer Electronics Show in January,” said Shai N. Gozani, M.D., Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of NeuroMetrix. “Now that we are in the market our focus is to optimize and expand our sales channels to make Quell available to the widest number of persons suffering with chronic pain. The Q2 equity offering provides timely resources for our near-term marketing efforts.”
The Company reported its financial results for Q2 2015. Total revenues were $1.22 million versus $1.34 million for Q2 2014. Gross profit was 51.4 percent of total revenues, level with 51.2 percent in Q2 2014. Operating expenses were $4.0 million compared to $3.3 million in Q2 2014. Increased spending primarily reflects marketing costs in support of the Quell launch. The Company recorded a non-cash credit of $2.14 million at June 30, 2015 for the revaluation at fair value of outstanding common stock warrants compared to a $0.48 million revaluation credit at June 30, 2014. Net loss was $1.2 million, or $0.48 per share. This compared to a net loss of $2.17 million for Q2 2014, or $0.85 per share. NeuroMetrix reported Q2 2015 net cash usage of $3.87 million and ended the period with cash and cash equivalents of $12.64 million.
