Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 was $2.3 million, compared to $1.5 million in the first quarter of 2020 and $3.3 million for the same period in 2019. Revenue in the second quarter of 2020 included approximately $2.1 million in EksoHealth revenue, compared to $2.8 million in the same period in 2019, and approximately $0.2 million in EksoWorks sales, compared to $0.4 million in the same period in 2019. The decline in revenue as compared to the same period in 2019 was due to a decrease in volume of medical device sales driven by the impact of COVID-19, as customers delayed orders to prepare for and manage their business during the pandemic.

Gross profit for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 was $1.3 million, compared to $1.6 million in the same period in 2019, representing a gross margin of approximately 56% in the second quarter of 2020, compared to a gross margin for the same period in 2019 of 48%. The decrease in gross profit is primarily attributed to lower volume of medical device sales.

Sales and marketing expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 were $1.7 million, a decrease of $1.3 million, or approximately 44%, compared to the same period in 2019. The decrease was primarily due to lower employee expenses and lower general marketing and trade show expenses.

Research and development expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 were $0.5 million, compared to $1.5 million for the same period in 2019, a decrease of $1.0 million, or approximately 70%. The decrease was primarily due to lower employee expenses and lower patent and licensing costs.

General and administrative expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 were $1.9 million, compared to $2.1 million for the same period in 2019, a decrease of $0.2 million, or approximately 8%.

Loss on warrant liabilities for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 was $8.6 million due to the revaluation of warrants issued in 2015, 2019 and 2020, compared to a $2.7 million gain associated with the revaluation of warrants issued in 2015 and May 2019 for the same period in 2019.

Net loss applicable to common stockholders for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 was $11.8 million, or $1.88 per basic and diluted share, compared to net loss of $3.1 million, or $0.65 per basic and diluted share, for the same period in 2019.

Six months ended June 30, 2020

Revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2020 was $3.7 million, which includes approximately $3.3 million in EksoHealth revenue, and $0.4 million in EksoWorks sales, compared to $6.9 million for the same period in 2019. The decrease in revenue for the six-month 2020 period was primarily due to the same reasons for the second quarter of 2020.

Gross profit for the six months ended June 30, 2020 was approximately $1.9 million, representing a gross margin of approximately 51%, compared to gross profit of $3.2 million for the same period in 2019, representing a gross margin of 46%. The increase in gross margins was primarily due to higher average selling prices and lower production costs of EksoNR devices.

Sales and marketing expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2020 were $4.2 million, compared to $5.8 million for the same period in 2019, a decrease of $1.6 million. The decrease was primarily due to lower employee expenses, lower general marketing and trade show expenses and a decrease in clinical trial activities due the completion of the Company’s main clinical trial in the first quarter of 2019.

Research and development expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2020 were $1.2 million, compared to $2.9 million in the same period in 2019, a decrease of $1.7 million. The decrease was primarily due to the same reasons for the second quarter of 2020.

General and administrative expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2020 were $4.1 million, compared to $4.4 million in the same period in 2019, a decrease of $0.3 million. The decrease was primarily due to a decrease in consulting expense and employee expenses.

Loss on warrant liabilities for the first six months ended June 30, 2020 was $6.1 million due to the revaluation of warrants issued in 2015, 2019 and 2020, compared to a $1.6 million gain associated with the revaluation of warrants issued in 2015 and May 2019 for the same period in 2019.

Net loss applicable to common shareholders for the six months ended June 30, 2020 was $14.3 million, or $2.37 per basic and diluted share, compared to $9.6 million, or $2.12 per basic and diluted share, for the same period in 2019.

Cash on hand at June 30, 2020 was $13.3 million, compared to $10.9 million at December 31, 2019. In June 2020, the Company raised gross proceeds of $7.89 million in a registered direct offering priced at-the-market under Nasdaq rules and $0.8 million from the exercise of the warrants that were issued in the Company’s May 2019 underwritten public offering.
