MENLO PARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Intersect ENT, Inc. (Nasdaq:XENT), a company dedicated to improving the quality of life for patients with ear, nose and throat conditions, today announced preliminary revenue for the second quarter 2016 of approximately $19.3 million, an increase of 27% from the second quarter 2015.
“We delivered a record quarter, reflecting increasing adoption of PROPEL® bolstered by the recent approval of the frontal sinus indication,” said Lisa Earnhardt, president and CEO, Intersect ENT. “In addition, our sales force expanded to 98 field staff at quarter end, including 73 territory managers and 25 sales consultants.”
Additionally, the company’s chief commercial officer, Chas McKhann, is departing for personal reasons. “We appreciate the many contributions that Chas has made to our business and we wish him the best,” said Ms. Earnhardt.
The second quarter revenue numbers included in this release are prior to the completion of review procedures by Intersect ENT's external auditors and are therefore subject to adjustment. Intersect ENT expects to provide financial results during its second quarter earnings call in early August 2016.
