IRVINE, Calif., May 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Inari Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ: NARI) (“Inari”), a medical device company with a mission to treat and transform the lives of patients suffering from venous and other diseases, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2023.
First Quarter Financial and Recent Business Highlights
- Generated revenue of $116.2 million in the first quarter of 2023, up 7.8% sequentially and 33.9% over the same quarter last year.
- Announced highly positive results from the FLAME study in high-risk/massive pulmonary embolism at the 2023 American College of Cardiology conference.
- Ended the quarter with $328.4 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments.
“Our strong financial performance in the first quarter reflected consistent execution across all of our growth drivers,” said Drew Hykes, CEO of Inari Medical. “We announced positive results from our FLAME study, which we believe will serve to change the standard of care for the treatment of high-risk PE. We also received FDA clearance for several new products that will drive market expansion while further distancing Inari from both existing and future competition. Our commitment to patients has never been stronger.”
First Quarter 2023 Financial Results
Revenue was $116.2 million for the first quarter of 2023, compared to $86.8 million for the first quarter of 2022 and $107.8 million for the prior quarter. The increase over prior periods was driven primarily by continued commercial expansion, increased adoption of our procedures, and introduction of new products.
Gross profit was $102.4 million for the first quarter of 2023, compared to $76.8 million for the same period of 2022. Gross margin was 88.2% for the first quarter of 2023, compared to 88.5% for the same period in the prior year. The slight decrease in gross margin was primarily due to the increase in costs associated with the addition of new components offered under our FlowTriever system price partially offset by manufacturing efficiencies.
Operating expenses for the first quarter of 2023 were $107.8 million, compared to $79.9 million for the first quarter of 2022. The increase was mainly driven by personnel-related expenses, including stock-based compensation, as we increased headcount to fund the expansion of the commercial, research and development, clinical, and support organizations.
Net loss was $2.2 million for the first quarter of 2023 and net loss per share was $0.04 on a weighted-average basic and diluted share count of 54.8 million, compared to a net loss of $3.1 million and a net loss per share of $0.06 on a weighted-average basic and diluted share count of 51.0 million, in the same period of the prior year.
Full-Year 2023 Revenue Guidance
For the full year 2023, we are revising our revenue guidance to a range of $478 million to $488 million, an increase of $8.0 million from our original guidance range of $470 million to $480 million.
