  • Non-GAAP operating margin of approximately 6%
  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA margin of approximately 18%

First Quarter 2019 Financial Results

Revenue: In the first quarter of 2019, worldwide revenue grew 52% to $280.5 million, up from $184.4 million in the first quarter of 2018. The growth was driven by increasing volumes across all channels in conjunction with the rising global awareness of the benefits of real-time CGM.

Gross Profit: Gross profit totaled $168.8 million or 60.2% of sales for the first quarter of 2019, compared to $118.9 million or 64.5% of sales in the first quarter of 2018.

Operating Loss: GAAP operating loss for the first quarter of 2019 was $14.4 million, compared to a GAAP operating loss of $30.7 million for the first quarter of 2018.

Non-GAAP operating loss* for the first quarter of 2019 was $7.6 million, compared to a non-GAAP operating loss of $28.7 million for the first quarter of 2018. The first quarter 2019 non-GAAP amount excludes $6.4 million of business transition and related costs and the first quarter 2018 non-GAAP amount excludes $2.0 million of such costs.

Net Loss and Net Loss per Share: GAAP net loss was $26.9 million, or $0.30 per share, for the first quarter of 2019, compared to a GAAP net loss of $24.2 million, or $0.28 per share, for the same quarter of 2018.

Non-GAAP net loss* was $4.6 million, or $0.05 per share, for the first quarter of 2019, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $26.3 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, for the same quarter of 2018. The first quarter 2019 non-GAAP amount excludes $6.4 million of business transition costs, $11.3 million of non-cash interest expense related to Dexcom’s senior convertible notes, and a $4.2 million loss related to equity investments.

Cash and Liquidity: As of March 31, 2019, Dexcom held $1.358 billion in cash and marketable securities and maintained full availability on its $200.0 million revolving credit facility.

Statement Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Dexcom reports non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Our financial measures under GAAP include certain non-cash collaborative research and development fees, business transition and related costs, income and expense related to our equity investment in Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc., and certain interest expense related to our senior convertible notes, as shown in the itemized reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release. Management believes that presentation of operating results that excludes these items provides useful supplemental information to investors and facilitates the analysis of our core operating results and comparison of operating results across reporting periods. Management also believes that this supplemental non-GAAP information is therefore useful to investors in analyzing and assessing our past and future operating performance.

These non-GAAP measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. We believe that non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with our results of operations as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP and that these measures should only be used to evaluate our results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. We encourage investors to carefully consider our results under GAAP, as well as our supplemental non-GAAP information and the reconciliation between these presentations, to more fully understand our business.
