2022 First Quarter and Recent Highlights

  • Total revenue was $10.2 million, up 25% year over year
  • U.S. laser sales increased 43% year over year and U.S. consumable sales increased 35% year over year, driven by increased procedures using BIOLASE lasers
  • International laser sales increased 15% year over year, while international consumable sales remained consistent
  • Higher average selling price and sales volumes resulted in a 47% gross margin for the quarter, an increase of 13 percentage points year over year
  • Continued momentum with new customers and dental specialists with 81% of U.S. Waterlase sales coming from new customers and 65% of U.S. Waterlase sales coming from dental specialists
  • Waterlase Exclusive Trial Program success rate increased to above 50% YTD, highlighting success of this program
  • Maintained a healthy balance sheet with cash and cash equivalents of approximately $22 million on March 31, 2022

"Our continued strong performance in the first quarter reflects positive momentum on several fronts," commented John Beaver, president and chief executive officer. "During the quarter we saw continued progress with our Waterlase Exclusive Trial Program, as our success rate has surpassed 50% year to date. This initiative, along with the launch of our specialist academies for endodontists, periodontists, pediatric dentists, and dental hygienists, generated increased adoption of our laser technology in the U.S. this quarter with 81% of our sales coming from new customers and 65% of sales coming from dental specialists. Additionally, we had 14 territory managers exceed quota this quarter, which is significant given that this is historically our softest quarter.

"With only between 7% and 8% of the U.S. dental community currently using dental lasers, we are confident that we can leverage the enhanced capabilities of our dental lasers to drive further adoption and become the new standard of care. With every one percentage point increase in market adoption of laser technology in the U.S. alone, we estimate it will generate an additional $50 million in revenue for BIOLASE, assuming we maintain our current 60% market share. With our strong start to the year, and the continued success of our sales initiatives, we believe we are well positioned for continued revenue growth in 2022."

2022 First Quarter Financial Results

Net revenue for the first quarter of 2022 was $10.2 million, an increase of 25% year over year. U.S. laser revenue was $4.0 million for the first quarter of 2022, up 43% when compared to U.S. laser revenue of $2.8 million for the first quarter of 2021. U.S. consumables and other revenue for the first quarter of 2022, which consists of revenue from consumable products such as disposable tips, increased 35% compared to the first quarter of 2021. Outside the U.S., laser revenue increased 15% to $2.3 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $2.0 million for the first quarter of 2021, and consumables and other revenue remained consistent year over year at $0.9 million.

Gross margin for the first quarter of 2022 improved significantly to 47%, compared to 34% for the first quarter of 2021. The higher gross margin reflects the increase in revenue relative to the Company's fixed costs as well as higher average U.S. selling prices of its lasers. Total operating expenses were $8.9 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $8.8 million for the first quarter of 2021. Operating loss for the first quarter of 2022 was $4.2 million, compared to an operating loss of $6.1 million in the first quarter of 2021.

The Company maintained a healthy balance sheet and had cash and cash equivalents of $21.6 million on March 31, 2022. The Company believes it has sufficient financial resources to execute its near and long-term growth strategies.

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, 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.
