Shockwave Medical Reports First Quarter 2021 Financial Results

SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Shockwave Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: SWAV), a pioneer in the development and commercialization of Intravascular Lithotripsy (IVL) to treat complex calcified cardiovascular disease, today reported financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

Recent Highlights

  • Recognized revenue of $31.9 million for the first quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 110% from the same period in 2020
  • Received Pre-Market Approval for use of IVL in severely calcified coronary artery disease from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and subsequently launched our Shockwave C2 device in the U.S.
  • Announced formation of a joint venture with Genesis MedTech Group, an established entity whose management team has a solid track record of commercializing medical devices in mainland China
  • Submitted Shonin application to PMDA for commercial approval of IVL for coronary use in Japan
  • CMS proposed new technology add on codes, or NTAP, for inpatient coronary procedures where IVL is used

“This quarter has been a highly productive one for Shockwave and I could not be more impressed by the achievements of our team and the support of our customers,” said Doug Godshall, President and Chief Executive Officer of Shockwave Medical. “With the recent FDA approval of our Shockwave C2 device, followed by the proposed NTAP payment by CMS only eight weeks after approval, we are well positioned to continue to expand our reach in helping to treat patients with severely calcified arterial disease.”

First Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Revenue for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021 was $31.9 million, a 110% increase from $15.2 million in the same period of 2020. The growth was primarily driven by the launch of the coronary product, Shockwave C2, in the U.S. in February and increased adoption of Shockwave products.

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2021 was $24.0 million compared to $9.5 million for the first quarter of 2020. Gross margin for the first quarter of 2021 was 75%, as compared to 63% in the first quarter of 2020. Contributors to gross margin expansion included the launch of Shockwave C2 in the US, which has a higher selling price, and continued improvements in manufacturing productivity and process efficiencies.

Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2021 were $41.5 million, a 45% increase from $28.5 million in the first quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily driven by salesforce expansion in the U.S. and higher headcount to support the growth of the business.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2021 was $23.6 million, compared to a net loss of $18.8 million in the same period of 2020. Net loss per share for the period was $0.68.

Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments totaled $177.4 million as of March 31, 2021.

2021 Financial Guidance
Shockwave Medical projects revenue for the full year 2021 to range from $195 million to $205 million, which would represent 188% to 202% growth over the company’s prior year revenue.
