ZELTIQ Announces Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Increases Full Year 2014 Revenue Guidance to $160 - $165 Million

PLEASANTON, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/29/14 -- ZELTIQ (NASDAQ: ZLTQ)

  • Total revenue of $47.1 million, up 79% compared to $26.3 million in Q2 2013
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin of 12%
  • 208 systems shipped, compared to 136 systems in Q2 2013, bringing total system installed base to 2,562 systems
  • 166,116 revenue cycles, up 63% from Q2 2013

ZELTIQ® (NASDAQ: ZLTQ), a medical technology company focused on developing and commercializing products utilizing its proprietary controlled-cooling technology platform, today announced financial results for the second quarter 2014.

Mark Foley, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Our second quarter success was driven by increasing CoolSculpting® momentum and awareness and can also be attributed to the sales and marketing investments we made in the first quarter, a strong trade show presence and robust customer adoption of our newest applicator, CoolSmooth™. We delivered record quarterly revenue of over $47 million, or nearly 80% year-over-year growth, while also maintaining strong selling price and a 71% gross margin. In addition, we reported earnings per share of $0.07 and achieved 12% adjusted EBITDA margin. The strength in our business was well balanced across both systems and consumables, as we further expanded our installed base while also increasing our account utilization. These outstanding financial and operational results further validate the strength of our CoolSculpting platform and our strategic decision to invest in our sales and marketing initiatives that have expanded our leadership position in the large, growing and underpenetrated market for non-invasive body contouring. We remain excited about the potential in 2014 and our increased confidence has led us to significantly raise full year 2014 revenue guidance to $160 million to $165 million, or 43% to 48% year-over-year growth and to guide to a full year positive adjusted EBITDA margin."

Mr. Foley continued, "As we look to the second half of 2014 and beyond, we believe we have the right strategy in place for robust revenue growth and continued improvements in profitability and cash generation. We remain bullish on our ability to place systems and drive strong utilization for the next several years as we further penetrate the growing non-invasive body contouring market. As well, we are beginning to see the benefits of our various programs through our positive utilization trends from our high margin consumable revenue business. And finally, we believe that our R&D product pipeline can deliver a steady cadence of new products and possibly new therapeutic applications based on our proprietary controlled cooling technology."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
ZELTIQ has supplemented its GAAP net income (loss) with a non-GAAP measure of Adjusted EBITDA. Management believes that this non-GAAP financial measure provides useful supplemental information to management and investors regarding the performance of ZELTIQ, facilitates a more meaningful comparison of results for current periods with previous operating results, and assists management in analyzing future trends, making strategic and business decisions and establishing internal budgets and forecasts. A reconciliation of non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA to GAAP net income (loss) in the most directly comparable GAAP measure is provided in the schedule below.

There are limitations in using this non-GAAP financial measure because it is not prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. This non-GAAP financial measure should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financial measures. Investors and potential investors should consider non-GAAP financial measures only in conjunction with the ZELTIQ's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP and the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measure provided in the schedule below.

About ZELTIQ® Aesthetics
ZELTIQ is a medical technology company focused on developing and commercializing products utilizing its proprietary controlled-cooling technology platform. ZELTIQ's first commercial product, the CoolSculpting® System, is designed to selectively reduce stubborn fat bulges. CoolSculpting is based on the scientific principle that fat cells are more sensitive to cold than the overlying skin and surrounding tissues. It utilizes patented technology of precisely controlled cooling to reduce the temperature of fat cells in the treated area, which is intended to cause fat cell elimination through a natural biological process known as apoptosis. ZELTIQ developed CoolSculpting to safely, noticeably, and measurably reduce the fat layer.
