Solta Medical Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2012 Results

Fourth Quarter Revenue Up 20% from Prior Year; 2012 Revenue up 25%

HAYWARD, Calif., Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Solta Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ: SLTM), a global leader in the medical aesthetics market, today announced results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012. Revenue for the fourth quarter was $39.8 million, an increase of $6.6 million, or 20%, as compared to the fourth quarter of 2011. Revenue from Liposonix, the Company's non-invasive fat reduction system, was $7.6 million, which was generated from shipments of 90 systems and associated consumables. For the full year 2012, revenue of $144.5 million grew year-over-year by $28.6 million or 25%.

"The fourth quarter provided a strong ending to a productive year for Solta," said Stephen J. Fanning, Chairman, President and CEO of Solta.  "We completed the integration of the Liposonix acquisition ahead of plan and the first year of the Liposonix commercial launch exceeded our expectations. During the year, we shipped approximately 360 Liposonix systems, generating $32 million in revenue. We also generated double digit revenue growth from our Clear + Brilliant brand. We continued to execute well, extending our broad product portfolio through a large distribution network and focusing on recurring revenue.  The increase in the gross margin, and our delivery of positive non-GAAP EBITDA in the fourth quarter and in every quarter over the past three years demonstrate the leverage in our business model. We also generated cash from operations of $1.4 million in the fourth quarter and $4.4 million for the full year ended 2012, and finished the year with $38 million in cash on the balance sheet."

Fourth Quarter Financial Highlights

Total product revenue from treatment tips and consumables for the quarter was $18.8 million, a year-over-year increase of $2.9 million or 18%, and represented 47% of total revenue.  Revenue from North America and international markets rose year-over-year by 17% and 23%, respectively.

GAAP net loss for the quarter was $45,000 as compared to GAAP net income of $1.0 million reported for the fourth quarter of 2011. The prior year net income included the one-time release of a valuation allowance of $6.4 million to offset deferred tax liabilities generated from acquiring Liposonix. Non-GAAP net income for the quarter was $2.3 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, as compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $23,000 for same period last year. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $4.0 million compared to $1.3 million for the same period last year.

The Company's GAAP results for the quarter include $1.8 million of amortization and other acquisition related charges, $1.0 million of non-cash stock based compensation charges, and a $0.5 million credit adjustment for the fair value reassessment of the expected earn out payments associated with the acquisition of Liposonix. The Company provides non-GAAP financial measures that exclude these charges and adjustments. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is provided in the tables included in this release.

Full Year 2012 Financial Results

Total product revenue from treatment tips and consumables for the year was $70.6 million, a year-over-year increase of $7.3 million or 11%, and represented 49% of total revenue.  Revenue from North America and international markets rose year-over-year by 34% and 17%, respectively.

The GAAP net loss for the year was $38.0 million, or a loss of $0.59 per share, as compared to a net loss of $1.3 million, or a loss of $0.02 per share reported for the full year 2011. Non-GAAP net income for the full year was $6.1 million, or $0.09 per diluted share as compared to non-GAAP net income of $3.6 million, or $0.06 per diluted share reported for the full year 2011.  Non-GAAP EBITDA for the full year 2012 was $12.0 million as compared to $7.5 million in the prior year.

Solta Medical's GAAP results for the full year 2012 include charges for the fair value reassessment of the expected earn out payments associated with the acquisition of Liposonix of $32.1 million, non-cash amortization and other acquisition related charges of $7.5 million, and non-cash stock based compensation charges of $4.6 million. The Company provides additional non-GAAP financial measures that exclude these charges and expenses. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is provided in the tables included in this release.

"With the pending acquisition of Sound Surgical, we anticipate continued growth, execution, and operating leverage in 2013. We expect to close the acquisition of Sound Surgical Technologies in the coming weeks and to expeditiously implement our integration plans. With the addition of Sound Surgical's VASER® product line, we look forward to offering our customers an expanded portfolio of innovative, safe, and effective body contouring solutions," said Mr. Fanning.

Financial Outlook for 2013

The company provided its preliminary financial outlook for 2013 which includes the pending acquisition of Sound Surgical Technologies as follows:

  • Revenue for the full year 2013 is expected to grow by 26% to 32% and be in the range of $182 million to $191 million, compared to full year 2012 revenue of $144.5 million.
  • Non-GAAP gross margin is expected to be in the range of 65% to 68% for the full year 2013.  Non-GAAP gross margin excludes non-cash amortization charges, non-cash stock based compensation charges, severance costs, and acquisition related adjustments. Non-GAAP gross margin for the full year 2012 was 66%.
  • Non-GAAP operating income is expected to be in the range of $13 million to $16 million for the full year 2013. Non-GAAP operating income for the first six months of 2013 is expected to be in the range $3 million to $4 million as the Company integrates its acquisition of Sound Surgical Technologies. Non-GAAP operating income excludes non-cash amortization charges, non-cash stock based compensation charges, severance costs, and acquisition related adjustments. Non-GAAP operating income for the full year 2012 was $8.4 million.

Non-GAAP Presentation

To supplement the condensed consolidated financial information presented on a GAAP basis, management has provided non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating income (loss), non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share measures that exclude the impact of acquisition related adjustments, severance costs, acquisition related costs, and stock-based compensation expenses.  The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with insight into what is used by management to conduct a more meaningful and consistent comparison of the Company's ongoing operating results and trends, compared with historical results.  This presentation is also consistent with the measures management uses to measure the performance of ongoing operating results against prior periods and against our internally developed targets.  There are limitations in using these non-GAAP financial measures because they are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.  These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financial measures.  Investors and potential investors should consider non-GAAP financial measures only in conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP and the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures attached to this release.
