Financial Results

Total revenue in the second quarter 2018 was $632,000, an increase of 106%, versus the comparable period of 2017. Total revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was $946,000, an increase of 81%, versus the comparable period of 2017. Our results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, included increases in units, as well as a higher average selling price primarily due direct sales.

Gross margin was 68% for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 and 2017. Gross margin was 67% and 66% for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

Operating expenses were $3,114,000, an increase of $973,000, or 45%, during the three months ended June 30, 2018, versus the comparable period of 2017. Operating expenses were $5,722,000, an increase of $2,079,000, or 57%, during the six months ended June 30, 2018, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2017. The increases in our operating expenses primarily reflect higher compensation costs associated with the addition of personnel, the expansion of our sales, marketing and product development efforts, and increased spending to secure reimbursement, as well as increased administrative costs to support our growing business and public company compliance requirements.

During the three months ended June 30, 2018 the company generated interest income of $50,000, as compared to incurring interest expense of $146,250 in the same period of 2017. We did not incur interest expense during the three months ended June 30, 2018 due to the payoff of our outstanding debt and our convertible promissory notes being converted into common stock upon the closing of our IPO on June 9, 2017.

The Company’s net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 amounted to $2,630,000, compared with a net loss of $7,382,000 for the corresponding period of 2017.

Net loss available to common stockholders for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 was $2,630,000 or ($0.21) per share, compared with a net loss available to common stockholders of $7,755,000, or ($3.35) per share, for the corresponding year ago period.

Adjusted EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2018 was a loss of $4,564,000, compared with a loss of $2,997,000 for the corresponding 2017 period.
