Nevro Reports Third Quarter 2023 Financial Results, Provides Fourth Quarter Guidance and Updates Full-Year 2023 Guidance


REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Nevro Corp. (NYSE: NVRO), a global medical device company that is delivering comprehensive, life-changing solutions for the treatment of chronic pain, today reported its third quarter 2023 financial results. The Company also provided fourth quarter guidance and updated its full-year 2023 guidance.

Recent Business Highlights and Guidance

Third Quarter 2023 Financial Overview

Worldwide revenue for the third quarter of 2023 was $103.9 million, an increase of 3% as reported and on a constant currency basis, compared to $100.5 million in the third quarter of 2022. PDN indication sales represented approximately $20.8 million and 20% of worldwide permanent implant procedures in the third quarter of 2023. 

U.S. revenue in the third quarter of 2023 was $89.8 million, reflecting growth of 4% over $86.1 million in the third quarter of 2022. U.S. permanent implant procedures increased 7% compared to the third quarter of 2022, while U.S. trial procedures increased 4% compared to the third quarter of 2022. U.S. PDN trial procedures represented approximately 24% of total U.S. trial volume and grew approximately 41% over the third quarter of 2022. 

International revenue in the third quarter of 2023 was $14.1 million, compared to $14.3 million in the third quarter of 2022, a decrease of 2% as reported or a decrease of 6% on a constant currency basis. 

"I am very pleased with our third quarter results. The changes and processes we put in place over the past five months are well underway, and we are beginning to experience the positive results from them," said Kevin Thornal, Nevro's CEO and President. "While we are encouraged by the early momentum we are experiencing, we know it will take several quarters for our financial results to fully reflect the positive changes we have made throughout the Company. We are excited about the opportunities ahead and delivering on our three core pillars: commercial execution, market penetration, and profit progress."

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2023 was $69.5 million, compared to $69.3 million in the third quarter of 2022. Gross margin was 66.9% in the third quarter of 2023, compared to 69.0% in the third quarter of 2022. "The full market release of the HFX iQ system continues to progress well. We are capturing a pricing uplift on our HFX iQ product, which is currently being offset by legacy product pricing pressures. We remain optimistic on our long run margin expansion opportunities with our Costa Rica sourced products," added Rod MacLeod, Chief Financial Officer.    

Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2023 were $95.1 million, compared to $92.2 million in the third quarter of 2022, excluding $105.0 million of certain litigation credits in the third quarter of 2022. The increase in operating expenses was primarily due to litigation and personnel related costs, partially offset by a decrease in stock-based compensation. Litigation-related legal expenses were $4.3 million for the third quarter of 2023, compared to $1.9 million in the third quarter of 2022.

Net loss from operations for the third quarter of 2023 was $25.6 million, compared to net income of $82.1 million, or a loss of $22.9 million in the third quarter of 2022, excluding the $105.0 million of litigation-related credits. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2023 was a loss of $5.8 million, compared to a loss of $3.8 million in the third quarter of 2022. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA excludes interest, taxes, and non-cash items such as stock-based compensation, depreciation and amortization, restructuring charges, litigation-related expenses, and certain litigation charges and credits. Please see the financial table below for GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliations.

Cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments totaled $320.3 million as of September 30, 2023, a decrease of $9.7 million from June 30, 2023. This decrease was primarily driven by cash used in operations. 

Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2023 Guidance

Nevro expects fourth quarter of 2023 worldwide revenue of approximately $108 million to $110 million, or a decrease of 4% to 6% over prior year on a constant currency basis.    

The Company expects fourth quarter of 2023 non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA to be a gain of approximately $1 million to $2 million. Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA excludes interest, taxes, and non-cash items such as stock-based compensation and depreciation and amortization, as well as litigation-related expenses, certain litigation charges and credits and other adjustments such as restructuring charges. Please see the financial tables for GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliations. 

The Company now expects full-year 2023 worldwide revenue of approximately $417 million to $419 million, an increase of 3% over prior year on both an as reported and constant currency basis. This compares to previous guidance of $410 million to $415 million. 

The Company now expects full-year 2023 non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA to be a loss of approximately $24 million to $25 million, compared to previous guidance of a loss of $25 million to $28 million and a non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA loss of $23.8 million in 2022.

Management uses certain non-GAAP financial measures, most specifically Adjusted EBITDA, as a supplement to GAAP financial measures to further evaluate the Company's operating performance period over period, analyze the underlying business trends, assess performance relative to competitors and establish operational objectives.

Management believes it is important to provide investors with the same non-GAAP metrics it uses to evaluate the performance and underlying trends of the Company's business operations to facilitate comparisons to its historical operating results and evaluate the effectiveness of its operating strategies. Disclosure of these non-GAAP financial measures also facilitates comparisons of the Company's underlying operating performance with other companies in the industry that also supplement their GAAP results with non-GAAP financial measures.

EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is calculated by adding interest income and expense, net; provision for income taxes; and depreciation and amortization to net income. In calculating non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, the Company further adjusts for the following items:

Full-year guidance excludes the impact of foreign currency fluctuations.

The non-GAAP financial measure should not be considered in isolation from, or as a replacement for, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, as it is not prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Amounts may not add due to rounding.
