SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SI-BONE, Inc. (Nasdaq:SIBN), a medical device company dedicated to solving musculoskeletal disorders of the sacropelvic anatomy, today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

Recent Highlights

  • Record worldwide revenue of $22.2 million for the second quarter 2021, representing a 58% increase over the corresponding period in 2020 which was significantly impacted by COVID-19

  • U.S. revenue of $20.2 million for the second quarter 2021, representing a 53% increase over the corresponding period in 2020

  • Gross margin of 89% for the second quarter 2021

  • Received exclusive coverage by Anthem, the second largest commercial health insurer in the U.S. with over 40 million members

  • Received positive coverage by Centene Corporation, a major intermediary for both government-sponsored and privately insured health care programs with over 25 million members

  • Published 2-year results from a prospective multi-center clinical trial of the iFuse-3D™ Implant System, the 95th peer-reviewed publication demonstrating the safety, effectiveness, biomechanical or economic benefits of iFuse Technology™

“Our strong performance in the quarter reaffirms the underlying strength of our business and growing demand for our innovative solutions,” said Laura Francis, Chief Executive Officer of SI-BONE. “With the exclusive coverage from Anthem, substantially all of the U.S insured population now has access to minimally invasive SI joint fusion. As the recovery progresses and the operating environment continues to normalize, our planned investments across product innovation, sales force expansion, surgeon engagement and patient awareness position us to accelerate market expansion and further extend our leadership as a sacropelvic surgical solutions company.”

Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Worldwide revenue was $22.2 million in the second quarter 2021, a 58% increase from $14.0 million in the corresponding period in 2020. U.S. revenue for the second quarter 2021 was $20.2 million, a 53% increase from $13.2 million in the corresponding period in 2020. International revenue for the second quarter 2021 was $2.0 million, a 137% increase from $0.8 million in the corresponding period in 2020. The second quarter 2020 was significantly impacted by COVID-19.

Gross margin was 89% for the second quarter 2021, as compared to 85% in the corresponding period in 2020 as higher cost of operations to support the growth of the business were offset by lower inventory write-downs. The second quarter 2020 gross margins were impacted by certain period costs that were expensed as incurred due to suboptimal capacity utilization driven by lower case volume and increases in inventory write-downs.

Operating expenses increased 49% to $32.8 million in the second quarter 2021, as compared to $22.1 million in the corresponding period in 2020. The higher operating expenses were driven by increased sales hiring, research and development expenses for new product development costs and increased stock-based compensation expense. The second quarter 2020 operating expenses were impacted by preemptive steps taken in response to COVID-19 to reduce discretionary spending.

Operating loss was $13.0 million in the second quarter 2021, as compared to an operating loss of $10.1 million in the corresponding period in 2020.

Net loss was $14.0 million, or $0.42 per diluted share for the second quarter 2021, as compared to a net loss of $12.5 million, or $0.44 per diluted share in the corresponding period in 2020.

Cash and marketable securities were $176.6 million and long-term borrowings were $39.6 million as of June 30, 2021.

2021 Financial Guidance

The Company continues to take a measured approach given the early stages of the COVID-19 recovery, and maintains the full year 2021 total revenue guidance to be approximately $92 million to $94 million, representing growth of 25% to 28% compared to full year 2020. Given the gross margin trends in the first and second quarter of 2021, the Company is updating the gross margin guidance to between 87% to 89% for full year 2021.
