Insulet Reports First Quarter 2014 Results

Companies mentioned in this article: Insulet Corporation

BEDFORD, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/14 -- Insulet Corporation (NASDAQ: PODD), the leader in tubeless insulin pump technology with its OmniPod® Insulin Management System, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

First Quarter Results

Sales of the new OmniPod both in the U.S. and in international markets helped drive strong increases in first quarter revenues and gross profit. First quarter 2014 revenue increased 21% to $69.2 million from $57.4 million in the first quarter of 2013. This level of revenue growth was achieved despite a reduction in Neighborhood Diabetes revenue from the sale of testing supplies to Medicare patients due to CMS' competitive bidding program, which went into effect on July 1, 2013. Excluding the impact of the competitive bidding program, revenue increased by approximately 30% year over year. Gross profit for the first quarter of 2014 rose 30% to $32.8 million from $25.2 million for the first quarter of 2013.

"Revenues continue to grow at an impressive rate," said Duane DeSisto, President and Chief Executive Officer of Insulet. "We have seen customer acceptance of our new OmniPod drive growth both here in the U.S. and internationally. We have begun to add additional commercial team members in high-performing territories. Many of them hit the ground running in April, and we expect to see a positive impact on second quarter growth as a result of their support. With a year's worth of experience behind us, we have made significant progress regarding the consistency of our manufacturing process for the new OmniPod with capacity to produce nearly a million OmniPods per month."

Operating loss for the first quarter of 2014 was $1.9 million, compared to an operating loss of $6.2 million in the first quarter of 2013, an improvement of approximately 70% as the Company continues to focus on reaching operating profitability for the year. Operating expenses were $34.7 million in the first quarter of 2014 compared to $31.4 million in the first quarter of 2013. The increase in operating expenses is primarily due to an increase in compensation related expenses, including stock-based compensation which was driven by the increased stock price through the first quarter.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2014 was $6.1 million, or $0.11 per share, compared to a net loss of $10.7 million, or $0.20 per share, for the first quarter of 2013.

As of March 31, 2014, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $145.6 million compared to $149.7 million at December 31, 2013.

Guidance
For the year ending December 31, 2014, the Company reiterates its estimate that revenue will be in the range of $295 to $315 million. For the second quarter of 2014, the Company expects that revenue will be in the range of $70 to $74 million.
