First Quarter 2019 Financial Results
First quarter 2019 revenue was $16.7 million, compared to $17.9 million for the same period in 2018. The decrease occurred primarily due to lower sales in the spinal hardware implant product line.
Gross margin for the first quarter of 2019 was 64.6%, compared to 68.2% for the same period in 2018. The year-over-year decrease was attributed primarily to inventory reserves and manufacturing overhead absorption.
Operating expenses for the first quarter of 2019 were $11.5 million, compared to $13.9 million for the first quarter of 2018. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower sales commissions and travel expenses, as well as a decrease in amortization expense related to the impairment of intangible assets that occurred in the fourth quarter of 2018.
First quarter 2019 net loss was $2.8 million, or $0.21 per share, compared to first quarter 2018 net loss of $5.3 million, or $0.70 per share.
Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2019 was $1.0 million compared to $1.2 million for the same period of 2018. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income/loss from operations before depreciation, amortization and interest expense, and as further adjusted to add back in or exclude, as applicable, non-cash special charges, provision for losses on inventory and accounts receivable, non-cash compensation, change in warrant derivative liability, separation related expenses, litigation reserve, facility consolidation costs and restructuring expenses.
