Cutera, Inc. (NASDAQ: CUTR) ("Cutera" or the "Company"), a leading provider of laser and other energy-based aesthetic systems for practitioners worldwide, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.
Second Quarter 2020 Financial and Operational Highlights
Revenue was $26.4 million, a 45% decrease from the prior-year period, as COVID-19 disruptions led to a year-over-year decline in procedures during the quarter
Capital Equipment revenue of $15.5 million, a decline of 59% over prior-year period
Recurring revenue grew 6% over prior-year period driven primarily by Skin Care revenue growth of 169% year-over-year offsetting declines in Service and Consumables revenue
Gross Margin was 44%, compared to 54% in the prior-year period, driven by lower production levels and substantially lower overhead absorption during the quarter, partially offset by strong pricing discipline and a reduction in manufacturing headcount
Net loss was $11.4 million, or $0.67 per fully diluted share, as compared to a net income of $0.6 million, or $0.04 per fully diluted share, in the prior-year period
Closed a public stock offering on April 21, 2020, resulting in approximately $26.5 million in net proceeds
Subsequent to the quarter, the Company secured a $30 million credit facility with Silicon Valley Bank, replacing the Company’s existing $25 million facility with Wells Fargo
"While our second quarter results were impacted by a decline in patient volumes associated with COVID-related shutdowns; I am encouraged by the recovery trends as patient volumes continue to rebound toward pre-COVID levels," commented Dave Mowry, Chief Executive Officer of Cutera, Inc. "I am pleased with our increased customer outreach efforts which we implemented during the quarter, leading to improved customer engagement and enabled us to be highly responsive, helping accounts increase their patient traffic. I am amazed by the resilience and adaptability of our customers, and proud of the Cutera team’s work to steer the company and our clients through unprecedented adversity. We are continuing to manage the impacts of the pandemic effectively, and, with a recently strengthened balance sheet, we are well-positioned to drive a continued recovery in our business through the second half of the year despite the uncertain environment."
2020 Financial Outlook

*Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In this press release, in order to supplement the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, or GAAP, management has disclosed certain non-GAAP financial measures for the statement of operations and net income (loss) per diluted share. Non-GAAP adjustments include stock-based compensation, depreciation, amortization, executive and other non-recurring separation costs, customer relationship management ("CRM") and enterprise resource planning ("ERP") system costs, non-recurring legal and litigation costs, as well as the net tax impact of excluding these items. From time to time in the future, there may be other items that we may exclude if the Company believes that doing so is consistent with the goal of providing useful information to investors and management. The Company has provided a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure used in this earnings release to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. The Company has not provided a reconciliation of non-GAAP guidance measures to the corresponding GAAP measures on a forward-looking basis due to the potential significant variability, limited visibility, unpredictability, or unique non-recurring nature of the items. Forward-looking non-GAAP measures include adjusted EBITDA. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, executive and other non-recurring separation costs, customer relationship management ("CRM") and enterprise resource planning ("ERP") system costs, and non-recurring legal and litigation costs.
Company management uses these measurements as aids in monitoring the Company’s ongoing financial performance from quarter to quarter, and year to year, on a regular basis and for benchmarking against other similar companies. Non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered along with, but not as alternatives to, the operating performance measure as prescribed by GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures for the statement of operations and net income per diluted share exclude the following:
Non-cash expenses for stock-based compensation. The Company has excluded the effect of stock-based compensation expenses in calculating its non-GAAP operating expenses and net income measures. Although stock-based compensation is a key incentive offered to its employees, the Company continues to evaluate its business performance excluding stock-based compensation expenses. The Company records stock-based compensation expense related to grants of options, employee stock purchase plan, and performance and restricted stock. Depending upon the size, timing and the terms of the grants, this expense may vary significantly but will recur in future periods. The Company believes that excluding stock-based compensation better allows for comparisons to its peer companies;
Depreciation and amortization. The Company has excluded depreciation and amortization expense in calculating its non-GAAP operating expenses and net income measures. Depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges to current operations;
Executive and other non-recurring separation costs. We have excluded costs associated with the resignation of our former Executive Officers in calculating our non-GAAP operating expenses and net income measures. We exclude these and other non-recurring employee separation costs because we believe that these items do not reflect future operating expenses;
Customer Relationship Management. We have excluded CRM system costs related to direct and incremental costs incurred in connection with our multi-phase implementation of a new CRM solution and the related technology infrastructure costs. We exclude these costs because we believe that these items do not reflect future operating expenses and will be inconsistent in amounts and frequency making it difficult to contribute to a meaningful evaluation of our operating performance; and
Enterprise Resource Planning. We have excluded ERP system costs related to direct and incremental costs incurred in connection with our multi-phase implementation of a new ERP solution and the related technology infrastructure costs. We exclude these costs because we believe that these items do not reflect future operating expenses and will be inconsistent in amounts and frequency making it difficult to contribute to a meaningful evaluation of our operating performance.
Non-recurring legal and litigation costs. We have excluded costs incurred related to third party litigation and disputes, that are of a non-recurring nature.
The Company believes that excluding all of the items above allows users of its financial statements to better review and assess both current and historical results of operations.
