Silk Road Medical Reports First Quarter 2020 Financial Results

SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Silk Road Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: SILK), a company focused on reducing the risk of stroke and its devastating impact, today reported financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

“As we continue through these challenging times, we are confident in the foundational strength of our business and the culture that we have built at Silk Road Medical,” said Erica Rogers, Chief Executive Officer. “While our short-term priorities have temporarily shifted in light of the COVID-19 outbreak, we remain undeterred in our longstanding pursuit to change the standard of care. We have proven that TCAR is a more efficient, safer procedure for many patients and we are committed to improving the lives of carotid artery disease patients with this technology.”

First Quarter 2020 Financial Results 
Revenue for the first quarter of 2020 was $18.9 million, an increase of $6.2 million or 48%, compared to the first quarter of 2019. The increase was driven primarily by growing adoption of the TCAR procedure across an expanded base of hospital accounts, trained physicians, and active sales territories.

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2020 was $13.7 million compared to $9.4 million for the first quarter of 2019. Gross margin for the first quarter of 2020 declined slightly to 72% compared to 74% in the first quarter of 2019, driven by previously announced investments in manufacturing engineering and infrastructure projects.

Operating expenses were $22.8 million for the first quarter of 2020, compared to $16.6 million in the corresponding prior year period, which represents an increase of 38%. The increase was driven primarily by selling, general and administrative expenses related to growth in our commercial team and marketing efforts as well as costs related to being a public company.

Net loss was $9.9 million in the first quarter of 2020, or a loss of $0.32 per share, as compared to $24.2 million, or a loss of $20.12 per share, in the corresponding period of the prior year. This metric for the first quarter of 2019 included a $15.7 million noncash charge resulting from the remeasurement of the fair value of our convertible preferred stock warrant liability at each balance sheet date.  We continued to record adjustments to the estimated fair value of the convertible preferred stock warrants until they were exercised in connection with our IPO offering in April 2019

Cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments were $97.6 million as of March 31, 2020.

2020 Financial Guidance
Silk Road Medical withdrew its previously announced annual guidance for 2020 on April 6, 2020. Given the uncertain scope and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, the company remains unable to accurately estimate the impact of the pandemic on its operations and financial results.

Silk Road Medical will host a conference call at 1:30 p.m. PT / 4:30 p.m. ET on Thursday, April 30, 2020 to discuss its first quarter 2020 financial results.
