Biolase Reports 2024 First Quarter Results; Reiterates Full-Year 2024 Guidance For Revenue Growth and Profitability

Increased Adoption of Dental Lasers and Improved Cost Structure Position Company for Sustained Long Term Growth and Success

LAKE FOREST, CA / ACCESSWIRE / May 13, 2024 / BIOLASE, Inc. (NASDAQ:BIOL), a leader in dental laser technology, today reported its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024.

First Quarter Financial Highlights

  • Generated increased adoption of its industry-leading laser, with approximately 67% of U.S. Waterlase sales coming from new customers and approximately 42% from dental specialists
  • Third strongest consumable sales quarter in company history, with consumable sales increasing 14% year over year, largely driven by over 600 subscriptions
  • Gross margin was relatively flat compared to the year-ago quarter; however, it improved by 1% year over year as the Company continues to benefit from 100% of its trunk fiber requirements now being supplied in-house and improved by 7% compared to the prior quarter from inventory adjustments and reserve charges recorded in the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2023
  • Significantly lowered Adjusted EBITDA loss by 21% versus the same quarter last year, as cost reduction initiatives achieved desired outcomes

Full Year 2024 Financial Guidance

  • Reiterates 2024 full-year financial guidance, in which it expects:
    • 2024 full-year net revenue to increase between 6% and 8% year over year to between $52 million and $53 million. This reflects the continued adoption of lasers and consumables by the dental community, including general dentists, dental specialists, dental hygienists, and group practice entities (DSOs), offset by the challenging business environment.
    • Positive Adjusted EBITDA results for the full year of 2024 (Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net loss before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, patent litigation settlements, stock-based and other non-cash compensation, and the change in allowance for doubtful accounts).

"While revenue was slightly down compared to the year-ago quarter, primarily due to the tougher economic climate, I believe the increased adoption of our award-winning lasers is an encouraging sign and a leading indicator that positions us for longer-term success," commented John Beaver, President and Chief Executive Officer of BIOLASE. "Furthermore, our purposeful and prudent actions have significantly improved our operations as we expanded our gross margin by 700 basis points sequentially, even with the expected lower seasonal revenues, and achieved a 9% reduction year over year in our expense structure. I believe these initiatives and our revenue expansion plans position BIOLASE for success. Moreover, we also strengthened the balance sheet to provide us with the resources necessary to maximize our growth opportunities and to enhance shareholder value."

Net revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2024, was $10.1 million, a decrease of 3% compared to net revenue of $10.5 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2023.

U.S. consumables and other revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2024, which consists of revenue from consumable products such as disposable tips, increased 17% year over year.

International consumables and other revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2024, which consists of revenue from consumable products such as disposable tips, increased 8% year over year.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the financial information prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. ("GAAP"), this press release includes certain historical non-GAAP financial information. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures assist investors in making comparisons of period-to-period operating results and that, in some respects, these non-GAAP financial measures are more indicative of the Company's ongoing core operating performance than their GAAP equivalents.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net loss before interest, taxes, depreciation, stock-based and other non-cash compensation, severance expense, change in allowance for doubtful accounts, increase in inventory reserves, stock warrant issuance costs, and loss on warrants. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA in its evaluation of the Company's core results of operations and trends between fiscal periods and believes that these measures are important components of its internal performance measurement process. Therefore, investors should consider non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or as superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Further, the non-GAAP financial measures presented by the Company may be different from similarly named non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.
