Silk Road Medical Reports First Quarter 2019 Financial Results

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – May 8, 2019 – 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, 2019.

Completed initial public offering of six million shares, raising approximately $108.8 million in net proceeds, after deducting underwriting fees and other expenses

“At Silk Road Medical, we are motivated by relentless dedication to successful patient outcomes and by our focus on two key priorities of expanding the clinical evidence and U.S. commercial execution. We are pleased to report first quarter results which reflect these priorities,” said Erica Rogers, Chief Executive Officer. “Commercial momentum is achieved by driving physician adoption of TCAR procedures which recently surpassed 10,000 globally. We are simultaneously progressing forward with clinical evidence and are pleased to announce that we have completed enrollment in our ROADSTER 2 study.”
First Quarter 2019 Financial Results
Revenue for the first quarter of 2019 was $12.8 million, an increase of $7.1 million or 124%, compared to the first quarter of 2018. The increase primarily was driven by increased adoption of the TCAR procedure across an expanded sales territory, hospital account and trained physician base.

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2019 was $9.4 million compared to $3.8 million for the first quarter of 2018. Gross margin for the first quarter of 2019 increased to 74% compared to 66% in the first quarter of 2018, driven primarily by leveraging manufacturing overhead costs across higher revenue.
Operating expenses were $16.6 million for the first quarter of 2019, as compared to $8.4 million in the corresponding prior year period, which represents an increase of 97%. The increase was driven primarily by selling, general and administrative expenses used to expand the company’s sales force and support the growth in operations.

Net loss was $24.2 million in the first quarter of 2019, or a loss of $20.12 per share, as compared to $5.4 million, or a loss of $7.31 per share, in the corresponding period of the prior year. This metric for the first quarter of 2019 and 2018 included a $15.7 million noncash charge and $0.2 million noncash benefit, respectively, 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 and cash equivalents were $15.5 million as of March 31, 2019. In April 2019, Silk Road Medical completed its initial public offering, raising approximately $108.8 million of net proceeds, after deducting underwriting fees and other expenses.

2019 Financial Guidance
Silk Road Medical projects revenue for the full year 2019 to range from $59 million to $61 million, which represents 71% to 77% growth over the company’s prior year revenue.
