2021 Third Quarter Operating Highlights (all comparisons are on a year-over-year basis unless specified otherwise):

  • Net revenue grew 46% to $9.5 million:
    • 78% of U.S. laser sales came from new customers, continuing a positive trend
    • Approximately 35% of U.S. Waterlase sales came from dental specialists
  • Net revenue was 10% higher than third quarter of 2019, which was the last pre-pandemic comparable period
  • Laser system sales increased 64%
  • Consumables and other revenue increased 21%
  • U.S. and international revenue increased 25% and 101%, respectively, as more dental practices were operating during the 2021 third quarter compared to the year-ago third quarter due to the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Gross margin was 51%, up 1,600 basis points, due to the higher year-over-year revenue, favorable revenue mix and higher average selling prices for products sold during the quarter
  • Maintained strong balance sheet, as cash and cash equivalents totaled $33.4 million at quarter end

"Our strong third quarter performance continues to reflect the rising demand for our industry-leading dental lasers," commented John Beaver, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our efforts to both educate and train dental specialists is leading to increased adoption across these large and largely untapped markets. In today's environment, the fact that BIOLASE lasers provide increased safety to dentists and their patients is generating a high level of acceptance by dental practitioners - and we expect this to be a driving force for the foreseeable future. Our industry-leading dental lasers aim to provide a better standard of care for dental procedures and seek to ensure a safer experience while reducing the risk of future procedure and business disruptions by reducing aerosolization to mitigate the spread of infectious pathogens, such as COVID-19. Looking ahead, we expect significant year-over-year improvement across our key performance metrics, including revenue and gross margin in the fourth quarter as we continue to gain momentum with new customers and dental specialists."

2021 Third Quarter Financial Results

Net revenue for the third quarter of 2021 was $9.5 million, an increase of 46% compared to net revenue of $6.5 million for the third quarter of 2020, which was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic as many dental practitioners were forced to suspend procedures. U.S. laser revenue was $3.4 million for the third quarter of 2021, up 25% when compared to U.S. laser revenue of $2.7 million for the third quarter of 2020. U.S. consumables and other revenue for the third quarter of 2021, which consists of revenue from consumable products such as disposable tips, increased 26% compared to the third quarter of 2020. Outside the U.S., laser revenue increased 168% to $2.7 million for the third quarter of 2021, compared to $1.0 million for the third quarter of 2020, and consumables and other revenue increased 13% year over year as recovery from the pandemic improved internationally.

Gross margin for the third quarter of 2021 was 51%, compared to 35% for the third quarter of 2020. The higher gross margin reflects the impact of the increase in revenues and increased average selling prices for products sold during the third quarter of 2021. Total operating expenses were $7.5 million for the third quarter of 2021, compared to $5.9 million for the third quarter of 2020. Operating loss for the third quarter of 2021, was $2.7 million, compared to an operating loss of $3.7 million in the third quarter of 2020. Net loss for the third quarter of 2021 was $3.3 million, or $0.02 per share, compared to a net income of $12,000, or less than $0.01 per share, for the third quarter of 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA loss for the third quarter of 2021 was $2.5 million, or $0.02 per share, compared to Adjusted EBITDA loss of $2.5 million, or $0.03 per share, for the third quarter of 2020.

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $33.4 million as of September 30, 2021. Due to the proactive and strategic decisions the Company took over the past year, BIOLASE's balance sheet remains historically strong, and is providing it with the resources the Company believes it needs to execute its growth strategies for several years without having to access the capital markets. 

2021 Fourth Quarter Revenue Guidance

The Company continues to experience high demand for its dental lasers and is currently forecasting revenue for the fourth quarter ending December 31, 2021 to be above the pre-pandemic revenue in the fourth quarter of 2019 of $10.2 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the financial information prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. ("GAAP"), this press release includes certain historical non-GAAP financial information. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures assist investors in making comparisons of period-to-period operating results and that, in some respects, these non-GAAP financial measures are more indicative of the Company's ongoing core operating performance than their GAAP equivalents.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, loss on patent litigation settlement, stock-based and other non-cash compensation, debt forgiveness, other net income, and allowance for doubtful accounts. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA in its evaluation of the Company's core results of operations and trends between fiscal periods and believes that these measures are important components of its internal performance measurement process. Therefore, investors should consider non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or as superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Further, the non-GAAP financial measures presented by the Company may be different from similarly named non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.
