November 8, 2018

GERMANTOWN, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 8, 2018--Senseonics Holdings, Inc. (NYSE-American: SENS), a medical technology company focused on the development and commercialization of a long-term, implantable continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system for people with diabetes, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018.


Commercially launched Eversense in the U.S. and completed first commercial insertion Announced positive coverage decision from Aetna, the third largest commercial health plan in the U.S. providing coverage for approximately 22 million lives Received coverage from BCBS Minnesota for approximately 2.5 million lives Received FDA approval for qualified health care providers – including nurse practitioners and physician assistants – to be trained and certified to provide patients with Eversense Received FDA approval to begin the 180-day investigational device exemption (IDE) registration trial in the U.S.

“The third quarter was a particularly exciting time for Senseonics with the U.S. launch of the Eversense system. Feedback from our first users has been exceptional across both patient and healthcare professional communities,” said Tim Goodnow, President and Chief Executive Officer of Senseonics. “As we look ahead, we are pleased with the early progress we are making to establish reimbursement and broaden patient and physician access to Eversense. Simultaneously, we are continuing to develop our clinical pipeline. We look forward to expanding our reach as we bring this life changing technology to people with diabetes.”


Revenue was $5.2 million for the third quarter of 2018, compared to $3.6 million for the second quarter of 2018 and $2.1 million for the third quarter of 2017.

Third quarter 2018 sales and marketing expenses was $7.9 million compared to $6.2 million in the second quarter of 2018, and $2.1 million in third quarter 2017. The increase in sales and marketing expenses was primarily driven by an increase in compensation expense associated with adding additional sales personnel to support the U.S. launch and to continue expanding the distribution of Eversense in Europe.

Third quarter 2018 research and development expenses decreased $0.9 million compared to the second quarter of 2018 to $7.4 million and decreased $2.4 million compared to third quarter 2017. The decrease in research and development expenses compared to the second quarter of 2018 was primarily driven by decreases in regulatory work in support of the FDA approval.

Third quarter 2018 general and administrative expenses were $5.1 million, a decrease of $0.3 million compared to the second quarter of 2018 and an increase of $1.2 million compared to the third quarter of 2017. The decrease in general and administration expenses compared to the second quarter of 2018 was primarily driven by the timing of spending associated with supporting operational growth.

Net loss was $31.9 million, or $0.18 per share, in the third quarter of 2018, compared to $17.4 million, or $0.13 per share, in the third quarter of 2017. This compares to a second quarter 2018 net loss of $32.5 million, or $0.23 per share. This decrease in net loss compared to the second quarter of 2018 was driven primarily by a change in the fair value of the derivative liability.. Excluding the change in fair value of the derivative liability, third quarter 2018 net loss would have been $24.4 million, or $0.14 per share. Third quarter 2018 net loss per share was based on 176.3 million weighted average shares outstanding, compared to 128.9 million weighted average shares outstanding in the third quarter of 2017.

As of September 30, 2018, cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities were $163.0 million and outstanding indebtedness was $70.2 million.


Company management will host a conference call at 4:30 pm (Eastern Time) today, November 8, 2018, to discuss these financial results. This conference call can be accessed live by telephone or through Senseonics’ website.
