SANTA CLARA, Calif., — June 28, 2016 — Miramar Labs, Inc., (OTCQB: MRLB), a global aesthetic company, announced today financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016.
Michael Kleine, President and Chief Executive Officer of Miramar Labs, said, “Momentum in our business continues to grow as we drive adoption of our technology with the placement of miraDry® systems. We also shipped a record number of high margin bioTip consumables in the quarter. We believe the global market opportunity for the miraDry® system is extremely large and underpenetrated given that it provides a non-invasive, permanent solution to unwanted underarm sweat and odor. There are over 15,000 aesthetic practices in the U.S. alone, a growing number of which continue to adopt novel aesthetic procedures to attract patients and expand their business opportunity. Our recently introduced optimized treatment protocol for miraDry® has been well received by physicians in the U.S., driving shorter procedures times and increased patient satisfaction. Outside of the U.S., Asia Pacific represents a key market opportunity for the miraDry® system, given the social stigmas related to sweat and odor, with large and underpenetrated markets across China, Japan, Taiwan, Korea and Australia. We recently shipped an initial order to our new China distributor, Meheco, which expands our presence in Asia, and we believe provides us with a significant opportunity to further penetrate this untapped marketplace.”
Earlier this month, Miramar Labs announced its successful completion of a reverse merger, with the combined entity focused on the miraDry® system, which delivers microwave energy to non-invasively destroy sweat and odor glands in the underarm. Miramar Labs will trade on the OTC Markets under the symbol “MRLB”. Concurrently with the reverse merger, Miramar Labs also completed a private placement with gross proceeds of approximately $9.0 million from the issuance and sale of 1.8 million shares of its common stock. Proceeds from the private placement will be used to support the ongoing commercialization of the miraDry® system, for the development and clinical studies related to products targeted for new indications, and for general corporate purposes, including working capital.
Total revenue in the first quarter of 2016 was $4.3 million, a 45% increase compared to $3.0 million in the first quarter of 2015.
Cost of product revenue was $2.0 million in the first quarter of 2016, compared to $1.3 million in the first quarter of 2015. Total gross profit in the first quarter of 2016 was $2.3 million, representing a gross margin of 53%, compared to $1.6 million in the first quarter of 2015, representing a gross margin of 55%.
Total operating expenses in the first quarter of 2016 were $5.3 million, compared to $5.9 million in the first quarter of 2015, primarily due to lower research and development spending associated with program and study costs in 2015.
Net loss in the first quarter of 2016 was $(3.3) million, or $(8.32) per share, compared to $(4.5) million, or $(11.81) per share in the first quarter of 2015.
Miramar Labs had total cash and cash equivalents of $1.4 million at March 31, 2016. As noted above, in June 2016 the Company completed a private placement with gross proceeds of approximately $9.0 million.
