Cynosure Reports Record Revenues for Fourth-Quarter and Full-Year 2012

-- Q4 Revenues Up 25% to $42.7 Million; 2012 Revenues Increase 39% to $153.5 Million

WESTFORD, Mass., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cynosure, Inc. (Nasdaq: CYNO) today reported record revenues for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2012. Revenues for the fourth quarter increased 25% to $42.7 million from $34.1 million for the same period of 2011, while revenues for the full year of 2012 were up 39% to $153.5 million from $110.6 million for 2011. 

"Our focus on consistently delivering the industry's leading aesthetic workstations and technology innovations enabled Cynosure to generate strong results in 2012," said Michael Davin, Cynosure's President and Chief Executive Officer.  "We believe that we are well positioned to continue our momentum in the year ahead. Demand across North America and our international segments helped to produce record top-line performance for the Company in both the fourth quarter and full year.  At the same time, we continue to achieve additional operating leverage which enhanced our margins and significantly strengthened the bottom line." 

Financial Highlights
Net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $4.0 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, compared with $1.1 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2011, reflecting increased revenue and improved operating leverage for the 2012 period.  For the full year, net income was $11.0 million, or $0.79 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $2.9 million, or $0.23 per share, for 2011.

Laser product revenue increased 28% for the fourth quarter of 2012 to $36.5 million from $28.4 million for the same period of 2011, and 45% for the full year to $128.5 million from $88.4 million for 2011.  These increases reflect the U.S. launch of the Company's minimally invasive Cellulaze™ Cellulite Laser Workstation in 2012 and strong demand for its other devices including the Elite™ family of products, as well as the MedLite® C6 and RevLite® Workstation and the Smartlipo® laser lipolysis system.

"Cellulaze, our newest flagship product, continues to enjoy a favorable reception among aesthetic plastic surgeons who are first-time Cynosure customers, as well as those doctors who are upgrading to Cellulaze from our Smartlipo MPX™ and Smartlipo Triplex™ workstations," Davin said.  "Compared with the fourth quarter of 2011, North American laser revenue was up 44 percent in the quarter, while international laser revenue grew 14 percent in the quarter from our European and Asian subsidiaries and international distribution channel." 

Gross profit margin for the three months ended December 31, 2012 increased to 58.1%, compared with 56.3% for the same period of 2011. The year-over-year improvement was primarily the result of increased sales of products with higher margins and increased revenue contribution from North America, where average selling prices tend to be higher. Gross profit margin for 2012 was 57.9% compared with 56.3% for 2011.

Total operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $20.6 million, or 48% of revenues, compared with $17.8 million, or 52% of revenues, for the fourth quarter of 2011.  The $2.8 million increase was primarily due to higher selling and marketing expenses related to sales growth, as well as continued clinical research and the development related to the Company's picosecond Alexandrite laser technology. For the year, operating expenses totaled $76.8 million, or 50% of revenues, compared with $64.3 million, or 58.2% of revenues, for 2011. 

"We continue to strengthen our operating performance with a favorable mix of products and expense management, resulting in a decrease in operating expenses as a percentage of revenue," Davin said. "Following the completion of our public offering in November 2012, we concluded 2012 with approximately $147 million in cash and equivalents, and we have no long-term debt. We believe our financial resources position us well for the future, and provide us with increased ability to consider promising opportunities that fit the criteria of our growth strategy."

Recent Highlights

  • In November 2012, the Company completed the public offering of 3,680,000 shares of class A common stock, which included 840,000 shares from selling stockholder El.En. S.p.A. The offering resulted in net proceeds of approximately $55.3 million to the Company.
  • The Company announced on December 4, 2012 that it received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to market the PicoSure™ laser workstation for the removal of tattoos and benign pigmented lesions. The Company expects to sell PicoSure initially through its U.S. direct sales force to aesthetic dermatologists and plastic surgeons. The Company plans to launch PicoSure in March 2013 at the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology.

Business Outlook 
"We capped a successful 2012 with our fifth consecutive quarter of profitability and record revenue on both a quarterly and full-year basis," Davin said. "We believe we enter 2013 poised for another year of profitable growth. We are excited for the launch of our newest flagship device, PicoSure, for the removal of tattoos and benign pigmented lesions.  After nearly a decade of research and development, this device provides us with a first-mover advantage in a large and underserved market. In addition, we expect that Cynosure's first home-use device, developed in partnership with Unilever, for the treatment of facial wrinkles will be commercially launched by Unilever in 2013."
