SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 29, 2021 (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 quarter ended June 30, 2021.
“Our second quarter results reflect excellent commercial execution and broad strength across our business, as TCAR utilization increased in all segments of our trained physician base,” said Erica Rogers, President and Chief Executive Officer of Silk Road Medical. “We remain very optimistic about the future of TCAR, and we are particularly excited about the new evidence supporting TCAR in standard surgical risk patients as we prepare to expand our addressable market to include this patient population.”
Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results
Revenue for the second quarter of 2021 was $26.5 million, an increase of $11.4 million or 75%, compared to the second quarter of 2020. 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 in 2021 increased 91% compared to the second quarter of 2020.
Gross profit for the second quarter of 2021 was $19.9 million compared to $9.8 million for the second quarter of 2020. Gross margin for the second quarter of 2021 increased to 75% compared to 65% in the second quarter of 2020. The prior period gross margin included unfavorable production variances as a result of temporarily idled manufacturing operations and lower demand due to COVID-19.
Operating expenses were $29.8 million for the second quarter of 2021, compared to $19.2 million in the corresponding prior year period, which represents an increase of 56%. The increase was driven by growth in personnel and continued commercialization and product development initiatives as well as the resumption of travel, tradeshow and other expenses as the impacts of COVID-19 declined compared to the second quarter of 2020.
Net loss was $10.5 million in the second quarter of 2021, or a loss of $0.31 per share, as compared to a loss of $10.4 million, or $0.32 per share, in the corresponding period of the prior year.
Cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments were $128.1 million as of June 30, 2021.
2021 Financial Guidance
Silk Road Medical projects revenue for the full year 2021 to range from $104 million to $109 million, which represents 38% to 45% growth over the company’s prior year revenue. This compares to previous revenue guidance of $103 million to $108 million.
