Endologix Reports First Quarter 2017 Financial Results
IRVINE, Calif., May 4, 2017 - Endologix, Inc. (NASDAQ: ELGX), a developer and marketer of innovative treatments for aortic disorders, today announced financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2017.
“We are pleased with our progress during the quarter and our solid start to the year. Our top-line performance was driven by continued adoption of Ovation®. We’ve also made excellent progress in lowering our operating expenses by driving synergies from the merger with TriVascular last year. Additionally, shortly after the end of the quarter, we secured a new credit facility, which we anticipate will provide the resources we need to execute our strategic initiatives,” commented John McDermott, Endologix’s Chief Executive Officer. “Looking forward, we remain focused on providing value through our comprehensive portfolio of innovative aortic technologies.”
Global revenue in the first quarter of 2017 was $42.6 million, a 0.6% increase from $42.4 million in the first quarter of 2016. U.S. revenue in the first quarter of 2017 was $30.9 million, a 3.4% increase from U.S. revenue of $29.9 million in the first quarter of 2016. International revenue was $11.7 million, a 6.2% decrease from International revenue of $12.5 million in the first quarter of 2016. On a constant currency basis, first quarter 2017 International revenue decreased 3.9%.
Gross profit was $28.6 million in the first quarter of 2017, which represents a gross margin of 67.2%. This compares to a gross profit of $27.9 million, or a gross margin of 66.0%, in the first quarter of 2016.
Total operating expenses were $44.3 million in the first quarter of 2017, compared to $66.3 million in the first quarter of 2016. First quarter 2016 operating expenses included $12.1 million of expenses related to the TriVascular merger and $4.7 million of litigation settlement costs. Excluding these items, operating expenses in the first quarter of 2017 were $5.5 million lower than in the prior-year period, representing a decline of 11.0%, which was driven primarily by cost synergies related to the TriVascular merger.
Net loss for the first quarter of 2017 was $21.3 million, or $(0.26) per share, compared to a net loss of $47.7 million, or $(0.62) per share a year ago. Adjusted Net Loss (non-GAAP, defined below) totaled $15.3 million, compared to an Adjusted Net Loss of $19.3 million for the first quarter of 2016. Endologix reported a negative Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP, defined below) of $9.8 million for the first quarter of 2017, compared to a negative Adjusted EBITDA of $14.1 million for the first quarter of 2016.
Total cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and marketable securities were $36.0 million as of March 31, 2017. Subsequent to March 31, 2017, the Company entered into a new credit facility agreement, which will provide additional liquidity to support investment in the business.
Endologix reaffirms its previously issued revenue guidance and continues to anticipate 2017 revenue to be in the range of $193 million to $200 million, representing reported growth of 0% to 4% and constant currency growth of 2% to 5% compared to 2016. Endologix now anticipates 2017 GAAP loss per share of $(0.83) to $(0.86), compared to its prior guidance of a GAAP loss per share of $(0.70) to $(0.76). This revised guidance primarily reflects increased interest expense and debt extinguishment related charges.

AAA is a weakening of the wall of the aorta, the largest artery in the body, resulting in a balloon-like enlargement. Once AAA develops, it continues to enlarge and, if left untreated, becomes increasingly susceptible to rupture. The overall patient mortality rate for ruptured AAA is approximately 80%, making it a leading cause of death in the U.S. For more information, visit at www.endologix.com.
