Silk Road Medical Reports Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 08, 2022 (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 September 30, 2022.
“Our performance in the third quarter reflects broad-based U.S. TCAR strength as we capitalize on the operational infrastructure our team has worked so hard to establish,” said Erica Rogers, CEO of Silk Road Medical. “This is the first time in over seven decades that the carotid artery disease market has experienced a level playing field for a minimally invasive approach with open surgery. With TCAR now available to all eligible patients, we have cemented the foundation to establish a new standard of care for carotid artery disease.”
Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results
Revenue for the third quarter of 2022 was $37.4 million, an increase of $12.7 million, or 51%, compared to the third quarter of 2021. Growth was driven primarily by increased TCAR adoption.
Gross profit for the third quarter of 2022 was $28.1 million compared to $18.6 million for the third quarter of 2021. Gross margin was 75% for the third quarter of 2022 and 2021. Gross margin for the current quarter benefitted from the revaluation of standard costs as commercial production commenced at the Minnesota facility.
Operating expenses were $37.3 million for the third quarter of 2022, compared to $31.9 million in the comparable prior year period, which represents an increase of 17%. The increase was driven by increased headcount in the Company’s commercial and R&D organizations, along with continued investments in new and ongoing R&D programs.
Net loss was $10.3 million in the third quarter of 2022, or $0.29 per share, as compared to a loss of $13.9 million, or $0.40 per share, in the corresponding prior year period.
Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments were $105.1 million as of September 30, 2022. Following the quarter close, the Company completed a follow-on equity offering, adding approximately $109 million in net proceeds to the balance sheet as of October 25, 2022.
2022 Financial Guidance
Silk Road Medical now projects revenue for the full year 2022 to range from $134 million to $137 million, which represents 32% to 35% growth over the Company’s prior year revenue.
