Silk Road Medical Reports Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – August 5, 2020 – 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 June 30, 2020.
“While the second quarter posed several challenges, we are pleased with our performance and we remain unwavering in our commitment to change the standard of care in carotid artery disease. Our results are a testament to our team, our clinical outcomes and our commercial strategy, as well as reflective of the underlying demand for TCAR,” said Erica Rogers, President and Chief Executive Officer of Silk Road Medical. “As expected, procedure volumes were lowest in April, then recovered significantly in May and further in June. We have recently begun to experience more regional variability and procedure slowdowns due to the resurgence of COVID-19 cases and related restrictions, and as such, remain cautiously optimistic as we look to the second half of the year.”
Ms. Rogers continued, “Despite the challenging environment, we made meaningful progress on our strategic initiatives in the second quarter and strengthened our balance sheet with a successful follow-on offering. We are increasingly confident in our positioning as we continue with planned investments to drive durable, long term growth.
Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results
Revenue for the second quarter of 2020 was $15.1 million, an increase of $0.2 million or 1%, compared to the second quarter of 2019. Second quarter revenue in 2020 included the recognition of $1.3 million in deferred revenue due to a decrease in the provision for sales returns related to certain prior sales with a shorter shelf life, coupled with the downward trend in the company’s historical returns rate. Excluding the contribution of the $1.3 million, second quarter revenue declined 8% compared to the second quarter of 2019. The company does not anticipate future potential decreases in the sales return provision to materially impact subsequent quarters.
Gross profit for the second quarter of 2020 was $9.8 million compared to $11.2 million for the second quarter of 2019. Gross margin for the second quarter of 2020 declined to 65% compared to 75% in the second quarter of 2019, driven by unfavorable production variances as a result of temporarily idled manufacturing operations and lower demand, partially offset by the decrease in the provision for sales returns.
Operating expenses were $19.2 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared to $17.2 million in the corresponding prior year period, which represents an increase of 11%. 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. Expense growth was modulated by cost control initiatives and the natural reduction in travel, tradeshow and other expenses due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Net loss was $10.4 million in the second quarter of 2020, or a loss of $0.32 per share, as compared to $12.0 million, or a loss of $0.42 per share, in the corresponding period of the prior year. This metric for the

second quarter of 2019 included a $5.3 million noncash charge resulting from the remeasurement of the fair value of our convertible preferred stock warrant liability.
Cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments were $157.9 million as of June 30, 2020.
