AVITA Medical Reports First Quarter 2022 Financial Results

May 12, 2022

VALENCIA, Calif. and MELBOURNE, Australia, May 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AVITA Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ: RCEL, ASX: AVH) (the “Company”), a regenerative medicine company that is developing and commercializing a technology platform that enables point-of-care

autologous skin restoration for multiple unmet needs, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2022.

Financial Highlights and Recent Updates:



Reported commercial revenue, which excludes BARDA revenue, of $7.4 million a 61% increase compared to $4.6 million in the corresponding period in the prior year



Reported total revenue, which includes BARDA revenue, of $7.5 million compared to $8.8 million in the corresponding period in the prior year, which included $4.1 million in BARDA revenue



In February 2022, FDA approved our premarket approval application (PMA) supplement for RECELL® Autologous Cell Harvesting Device, an enhanced RECELL system aimed at providing clinicians a more efficient user experience and simplified workflow



In February 2022, Japan’s Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA) approved our application for commercialization of the RECELL system in burns



As of March 31, 2022, the Company had $95.0 million in cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities, with no debt

“Our commercial team performed well this quarter driving further adoption and penetration within burn centers, and our clinical team continued to move the soft tissue reconstruction and vitiligo trials forward,” said Dr. Mike Perry, AVITA Medical Chief Executive Officer. “We are well positioned to drive revenue growth ahead and we look forward to topline data readouts from our soft tissue reconstruction and vitiligo clinical trials in the second half of this year.”

First Quarter of Year 2022 Financial Results

Our commercial revenue, which excludes BARDA revenue, was $7.4 million in the current year, an increase of $2.8 million or 61%, compared to $4.6 million the corresponding period in the prior year. Total revenue, which includes BARDA revenue, was $8.8 million in the corresponding period in the prior year which included $4.1 million in BARDA related revenue that resulted from our delivery of units to managed inventory for BARDA for emergency response preparedness. The increase in commercial revenue was largely driven by broader utilization among our customer base as well as deeper penetration within individual customer accounts.

Gross profit margin was 76% and is flat compared to the corresponding period in the prior year.

Total operating expenses increased by 21% to $16.0 million compared to $13.2 million in the corresponding period in the prior year. The increase in operating expenses is primarily attributable to higher share-based compensation, salary, and benefits. Higher share-based compensation expenses are associated with acceleration of expense for certain performance milestones being met in the current quarter. Higher salary and benefits are driven by the expansion of our workforce to support the overall operations, an increase in field resources to expand our market coverage and hiring of an executive at the end of March 2021.

Net loss increased by 58% or $3.5 million to $9.5 million, or $0.38 per share, compared to a net loss of $6.0 million, or $0.26 per share, in the corresponding period of the prior year.

Adjusted EBITDA* loss increased by 42%, or $1.9 million to $6.4 million, over the $4.5 million recognized in the corresponding period in the prior year. A table reconciling non-GAAP measures is included in this press release for reference.

Calendar Year 2022 Revenue Guidance

Commercial revenues in calendar year 2022 are projected to be approximately $30 million, excluding BARDA revenues, which represents a 20% increase year-over year. We project BARDA revenues of approximately $0.3 million in calendar year 2022, as compared to $7.9 million in calendar year 2021, since we completed delivery of RECELL units into the national stockpile in 2021.



Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. See the appendix to this release for a discussion of Non-GAAP financial measures, including a reconciliation to the most closely correlated GAAP measure.

ABOUT AVITA Medical, Inc.

AVITA Medical, Inc. is a regenerative medicine company with a technology platform positioned to address unmet medical needs in burns, chronic wounds, and aesthetics indications. AVITA Medical Inc. patented, and proprietary collection and application technology provides innovative treatment solutions derived from the regenerative properties of a patient’s own skin. The medical devices work by preparing a RES® REGENERATIVE EPIDERMAL SUSPENSION, an autologous suspension comprised of the patient’s skin cells necessary to regenerate natural healthy epidermis. This autologous suspension is then sprayed onto the areas of the patient requiring treatment.

AVITA Medicals’ first U.S. product, the RECELL System, was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in September 2018. The RECELL System is approved for acute partial-thickness thermal burn wounds in patients 18 years of age and older or application in combination with meshed autografting for acute full-thickness thermal burn wounds in pediatric and adult patients. The RECELL System is used to prepare Spray-On Skin Cells using a small amount of a patient’s own skin, providing a new way to treat severe burns, while significantly reducing the amount of donor skin required. The RECELL System is designed to be used at the point of care alone or in combination with autografts depending on the depth of the burn injury. Compelling data from randomized, controlled clinical trials conducted at major U.S. burn centers and real-world use in more than 8,000 patients globally, reinforce that the RECELL System is a significant advancement over the current standard of care for burn patients and offers benefits in clinical outcomes and cost savings. Healthcare professionals should read the INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE - RECELL Autologous Cell Harvesting Device ( for a full description of indications for use and important safety information including contraindications, warnings, and precautions.

In February 2022, the FDA reviewed and approved the PMA supplement for RECELL Autologous Cell Harvesting Device, an enhanced RECELL System aimed at providing clinicians a more efficient user experience and simplified workflow. The RECELL System is a device that enables healthcare professionals to produce a suspension of Spray-On Skin Cells using a small sample of the patient’s own skin for the treatment of acute thermal burns

In international markets, our products are marketed under the RECELL System brand to promote skin healing in a wide range of applications including burns, chronic wounds, and aesthetics. The RECELL System is TGA-registered in Australia and received CE-mark approval in Europe.
