Third Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Total revenue for the third quarter of 2023 was $35.1 million, an increase of 72% compared to the prior year period. U.S. revenue was $32.3 million, representing growth of 73% compared to the prior year period. The increase was primarily driven by increased handpiece revenue and system sales to new hospital customers. U.S. handpiece and consumable revenue for the third quarter of 2023 was $17.0 million, an increase of 113% compared to the prior year period. Third quarter of 2023 monthly utilization per account increased 6% compared to the prior year period. U.S. system revenue for the third quarter of 2023 was $13.5 million, an increase of 37% compared to the prior year period. As of September 30, 2023, the install base of AquaBeam Robotic Systems in the U.S. was 271 systems. International revenue was $2.8 million for the quarter, an increase of 62% compared to the prior year period.

Gross margin for the third quarter 2023 was 54% compared to 50% in the prior year period. Gross margin improvement was primarily attributable to increased operations and manufacturing efficiencies to absorb overhead expenses and increased sales volume.

Operating expenses in the third quarter of 2023 were $44.5 million, compared with $32.3 million in the prior year period. When compared to the second quarter of 2023, total operating expenses increased $0.4 million, which is the lowest sequential increase over the last two years. The increase was driven by increased sales and marketing expenses primarily to expand the commercial organization, and increased research and development and general and administrative expenses.

Net loss was $24.6 million for the third quarter of 2023, compared to a loss of $22.6 million in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA was a loss of $19.4 million for the third quarter of 2023, compared to a loss of $18.3 million in the prior year period.

Cash and short-term investments as of September 30, 2023, totaled $287.1 million, while long-term borrowings totaled $52.0 million.

About PROCEPT BioRobotics Corporation
PROCEPT BioRobotics is a surgical robotics company focused on advancing patient care by developing transformative solutions in urology. PROCEPT BioRobotics develops, manufactures and sells the AquaBeam Robotic System, an advanced, image-guided, surgical robotic system for use in minimally invasive urologic surgery with an initial focus on treating benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH. BPH is the most common prostate disease and impacts approximately 40 million men in the United States. PROCEPT BioRobotics designed Aquablation therapy to deliver effective, safe and durable outcomes for males suffering from lower urinary tract symptoms, or LUTS, due to BPH that are independent of prostate size and shape or surgeon experience. The Company has developed a significant and growing body of clinical evidence, which includes nine clinical studies and over 150 peer-reviewed publications, supporting the benefits and clinical advantages of Aquablation therapy.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Unaudited)
This press release references Adjusted EBITDA, a financial measure that is not prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP). The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization and stock-based compensation. Non-GAAP financial measures are not a substitute for or superior to measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP.

The Company believes that presenting Adjusted EBITDA provides useful supplemental information to investors about the Company in understanding and evaluating its operating results, enhancing the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects, and allowing for greater transparency with respect to key financial metrics used by its management in financial and operational decision making. However, there are a number of limitations related to the use of non-GAAP measures and their nearest GAAP equivalents. For example, other companies may calculate non-GAAP measures differently, or may use other measures to calculate their financial performance, and therefore any non-GAAP measures the Company uses may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
