Silk Road Medical Reports Third Quarter 2023 Financial Results
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 08, 2023 (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, 2023.
“As announced on November 2, we are thrilled to welcome Chas McKhann as the new Chief Executive Officer of Silk Road Medical,” said Jack Lasersohn, Chairman of the Board of Directors. “Chas is a skilled and experienced leader with a track record of effectively building and scaling medical device businesses into underpenetrated markets. We believe he is the right leader to leverage our strong infrastructure, skilled commercial team, and substantial body of clinical evidence to drive further TCAR adoption.”
Third Quarter 2023 Financial Results
Revenue for the third quarter of 2023 was $44.4 million, an increase of $7.1 million or 19%, compared to the third quarter of 2022. Growth was driven primarily by increased TCAR adoption.
Gross profit for the third quarter of 2023 was $32.4 million compared to $28.1 million for the third quarter of 2022. Gross margin was 73% for the third quarter of 2023 compared to 75% for the third quarter of 2022. The decrease was driven by a revaluation of standard costs in the prior year period which benefitted margins, as well as higher manufacturing costs associated with having two manufacturing facilities fully operational in the third quarter of 2023.
Operating expenses were $46.1 million for the third quarter of 2023, compared to $37.3 million in the comparable prior year period, which represents an increase of 24%. The increase was due primarily to the continued expansion of the sales team and commercial efforts.
Net loss was $12.8 million in the third quarter of 2023, or $0.33 per share, as compared to a loss of $10.3 million, or $0.29 per share, in the corresponding period of the prior year.
Cash, cash equivalents and investments were $197.2 million as of September 30, 2023.
2023 Financial Guidance
Silk Road Medical projects revenue for full year 2023 to range from $170 million to $174 million, which represents 23% to 26% growth over the Company’s prior year revenue.
