TORONTO, July 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Venus Concept Inc. (“Venus Concept” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: VERO), a global medical aesthetic technology leader, today reported preliminary revenue results for the three months ended June 30, 2020.
“While our second quarter revenue performance was significantly impacted by the COVID-19 global pandemic, we are pleased to see our business trends improve during the second quarter along with the gradual reopening of practices throughout the U.S and EMEA” said Domenic Serafino, Chief Executive Officer of Venus Concept. “New product launches, including the Venus Bliss, continue to be strong drivers of U.S. growth in 2020. We are also pleased that our integration efforts are beginning to pay off ; specifically, we had notable commercial success with the adoption of our ARTAS iX® by new customers in international markets.”
Mr. Serafino continued: “While the near-term outlook has been challenged by this global pandemic, we continue to believe the long-term opportunity remains extremely compelling for us as a leading player in both the global minimally invasive/non-invasive medical aesthetics market and the minimally invasive surgical hair restoration market. Importantly, our efforts to reduce the operating expense profile of the combined company are progressing well and we continue to expect our restructuring program, combined with previously announced synergies and cost reductions, to result in cost savings of approximately $38 million in 2020 and continuing into 2021. Finally, the recently announced common stock purchase agreement with Lincoln Park Capital Fund, LLC for up to $31 million is available to enhance our balance sheet and financial condition to support our future growth initiatives.”
Preliminary Second Quarter 2020 Revenue Summary:
- Preliminary total GAAP revenue for the three months ending June 30, 2020 is expected to be in the range of $16.4 million to $16.9 million, compared to total GAAP revenue of $27.8 million for the second quarter of 2019, representing a decrease of 41% to 39% year-over-year.
