AtriCure Reports First Quarter 2020 Financial Results

  • Worldwide revenue of $53.2 million – a decrease of 1.4% year over year
  • U.S. revenue of $43.5 million – an increase of 1.1% year over year
  • International revenue of $9.8 million – a decrease of 11.0% year over year

MASON, Ohio--()--AtriCure, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATRC), a leading innovator in treatments for atrial fibrillation (Afib) and left atrial appendage (LAA) management, today announced first quarter 2020 financial results.

“I want to extend gratitude to our partners in the healthcare community, all of whom are taking extraordinary efforts to care for both COVID and non-COVID patients in these difficult times. As the world continues to navigate the pandemic, we have positioned our business to mitigate disruption and remain committed to supporting our people, patients, customers and communities,” said Michael Carrel, President and Chief Executive Officer of AtriCure. “We have built a great foundation strategically, financially and operationally that will guide us to long-term growth.”

First Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Revenue for the first quarter of 2020 was $53.2 million, a decrease of $0.7 million or 1.4% (a decrease of 1.0% on a constant currency basis), compared to first quarter 2019 revenue. U.S. revenue increased 1.1% to $43.5 million, driven by increased sales of appendage management products and offset by a decline in minimally invasive ablation product sales. International revenue was $9.8 million, a decrease of $1.2 million or 11.0% (a decrease of 9.4% on a constant currency basis), compared to first quarter 2019 revenue.

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2020 was $38.9 million compared to $40.0 million for the first quarter of 2019. Gross margin for the first quarter of 2020 decreased to 73.1% compared to 73.9% in the first quarter of 2019.

Loss from operations for the first quarter of 2020 was $15.5 million, compared to $5.3 million for the first quarter of 2019. Net loss per share was $0.42 for the first quarter of 2020 compared to $0.15 for the first quarter of 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $6.1 million for the first quarter of 2020 compared to a loss of $0.5 million for the first quarter of 2019. Adjusted loss per share for the first quarter of 2020 was $0.36 compared to an adjusted loss per share of $0.20 for the first quarter of 2019. Constant currency revenue, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted loss per share are non-GAAP measures.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains “forward-looking statements”– that is, statements related to future events that by their nature address matters that are uncertain. For details on the uncertainties that may cause our actual results to be materially different than those expressed in our forward-looking statements, visit http://www.atricure.com/fls as well as our Annual Reports on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q which contain risk factors. We do not undertake to update our forward-looking statements. This document also includes forward-looking projected financial information that is based on current estimates and forecasts. Actual results could differ materially.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement AtriCure’s condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, or GAAP, AtriCure uses certain non-GAAP financial measures in this release as supplemental financial metrics.

Revenue reported on a constant currency basis is a non-GAAP measure and is calculated by applying previous period foreign currency exchange rates, which are determined by the average daily Euro to Dollar exchange rate, to each of the comparable periods. Management analyzes revenue on a constant currency basis to better measure the comparability of results between periods. Because changes in foreign currency exchange rates have a non-operating impact on revenue, the Company believes that evaluating growth in revenue on a constant currency basis provides an additional and meaningful assessment of revenue to both management and the Company’s investors.

Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as Net loss before other income/expense (including interest), income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense, share-based compensation expense, acquisition costs, and change in fair value of contingent consideration liabilities. Management believes in order to properly understand the short-term and long-term financial trends, investors may wish to consider the impact of these excluded items in addition to GAAP measures. The excluded items vary in frequency and/or impact on our continuing results of operations and management believes that the excluded items are typically not reflective of our ongoing core business operations and financial condition. Further, management uses adjusted EBITDA for both strategic and annual operating planning, and previously used adjusted EBITDA as a performance metric in the annual incentive plan. A reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA reported in this release to the most comparable GAAP measure for the respective periods can be found in the table captioned “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Adjusted Income (Loss) (Adjusted EBITDA)” later in this release.

Adjusted loss per share is a non-GAAP measure which calculates the net loss per share before non-cash adjustments to expenses related to the adjustment in value of contingent consideration liabilities. Management believes this metric provides a better measure of comparability of results between periods, as such adjustments can be significant and vary in value and are not reflective of our core business. A reconciliation of adjusted loss per share reported in this release to the most comparable GAAP measure for the respective periods can be found in the table captioned “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Adjusted Loss Per Share” later in this release.

The non-GAAP financial measures used by AtriCure may not be the same or calculated the same as those used by other companies. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for AtriCure’s financial results prepared and reported in accordance with GAAP.
