Record Quarter: Net Revenue Grew 235% Year-over-Year to $26.1 Million

Exceeded Annualized Revenue Run Rate Goal of $100 Million

Low Q2 Cash Burn Resulting in $131.7 Million Cash Position at Quarter-End

On Track for European Launch in Early 2022, a $470 Million Market1

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Aug. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Evolus, Inc. (Nasdaq: EOLS), a performance beauty company with a customer-centric approach focused on delivering breakthrough products, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021 and provided a business update.

“The record level of sales we reported this quarter, our first full quarter following the successful resolution of our legal matters earlier this year, clearly demonstrates the resilience of Evolus and the strong underlying demand for Jeuveau®,” said David Moatazedi, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our strong second quarter sets a new baseline from which we plan to grow and positions us to achieve record sales in the second half of the year. We expect our differentiated approach of co-branding with accounts to target a younger demographic will fuel our strong momentum. As we look beyond 2021, we are committed to expanding our presence even further and becoming a global leader in the aesthetics industry.”

Second Quarter 2021 Highlights and Recent Corporate Developments

  • Strong second quarter 2021 commercial performance drivers:

    • Jeuveau® net revenues were $26.1 million, up strongly compared to the second quarter of 2020, driven primarily by higher volumes.

    • Increased Jeuveau® purchasing account base to more than 6,000 customers.

    • Over 200,000 consumers registered in the Evolus customer loyalty program as compared to 122,000 at year-end 2020, a 66% increase2.

    • Co-branded advertising continuing to efficiently drive greater brand awareness and higher consumer interest.

    • Strong recovery of the U.S. aesthetics market and an increasing demand for toxin products among existing and new patients.

  • On track for European launch in early 2022, representing an estimated $470 million botulinum toxin market1 in 2022 in which the company will compete.

  • Publication of peer-reviewed article highlighting efficacy and safety of Jeuveau® in patients with skin of color.

Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results and Outlook

  • Total net revenues increased 234.6% to $26.1 million from $7.8 million in the second quarter of 2020, consisting of $25.4 million of U.S. Jeuveau® net revenue and $0.7 million of service revenue from international sales.

  • Gross profit margin and adjusted gross profit margin were 53.9% and 56.7%, respectively. Based on its current performance, the company is increasing its full year 2021 adjusted gross profit margin target to a range of 54% to 57%. Adjusted gross profit margin excludes amortization of intangibles and a settlement payment from Daewoong. Beginning in the fourth quarter of 2022, the gross profit margin is expected to exceed 70% due to reduced settlement royalty rates.

  • GAAP loss from operations improved 19% to $15.3 million from $18.9 million in the second quarter of 2020.

  • Non-GAAP loss from operations improved 25% to $9.3 million from $12.4 million in the second quarter of 2020, primarily due to increased revenue in the second quarter of 2021 and a $3 million COVID-related restructuring charge in the second quarter of 2020.

  • Cash and cash equivalents at June 30, 2021 were $131.7 million compared to $22.2 million at March 31, 2021. The company expects its June 30, 2021 cash position to sufficiently fund its operations for at least the next 12 months.

  • For the second quarter ended June 30, 2021, the company had approximately 51.2 million weighted-average shares of common stock outstanding.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements as defined under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All statements, other than statements of historical fact, are statements that could be deemed forward-looking statements, including statements that relate to the status of regulatory processes, future plans, events, prospects or performance and statements containing the words “plans,” “expects,” “believes,” “strategy,” “opportunity,” “anticipates,” “outlook,” “designed,” or other forms of these words or similar expressions, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. The company’s forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements made by Mr. Moatazedi regarding the effect of recent events on the company's trends, expectations about the company’s sales in the second half of 2021, effectiveness of the company’s marketing partnership with customers and ability to expand the company’s presence, statements regarding expectations about the recovery of the U.S. aesthetics market and demand for toxin products, statements about the European launch and the potential market opportunity thereof, and statements regarding the company’s financial outlook related to its gross profit margin and adjusted gross profit margin profile. Forward-looking statements are based on current estimates and assumptions made by management of the company and are believed to be reasonable, though they are inherently uncertain and difficult to predict.

Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results or experience to differ materially from that expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results or experience to differ materially from that expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements include uncertainties associated with our ability to address all of our losses, costs, expenses, liabilities and damages resulting from the settlement agreement with Daewoong and our ability to comply with the terms and conditions in the Allergan/Medytox Settlement Agreements, including the effect on our pricing, discounts we may offer to our customers and the volume of purchases by our customers, the continued impact of COVID-19 on our business and the economy generally, uncertainties related to customer and consumer adoption of Jeuveau®, the efficiency and operability of our digital platform, competition and market dynamics, and our ability to maintain regulatory approval of Jeuveau® and other risks described in the section entitled “Risk Factors” in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 12, 2021, which is available online at www.sec.gov. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof. Except as required by law, Evolus undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements to reflect new information, changed circumstances or unanticipated events. If the company does update or revise one or more of these statements, investors and others should not conclude that the company will make additional updates or corrections.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Evolus’ financial results are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). This press release and the reconciliation tables included in the financial schedules below include adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross profit margin, non-GAAP operating expenses and non-GAAP loss from operations. Adjusted gross profit is calculated as gross profit excluding the one-time settlement payment from Daewoong and amortization of an intangible asset. Adjusted gross profit margin is defined as adjusted gross profit as a percentage of total net revenues. Non-GAAP operating expenses and non-GAAP loss from operations exclude, as applicable, (i) one-time settlement payment from Daewoong, (ii) the revaluation of contingent royalty obligations, (iii) stock-based compensation expense, and (iv) depreciation and amortization. Management believes that adjusted gross profit margin is an important measure for investors because management uses adjusted gross profit margin as a key performance indicator to evaluate the profitability of sales without giving effect to costs that are not core to our cost of sales, such as the settlement payment from Daewoong, and the amortization of an intangible asset. Management believes that non-GAAP operating expenses and non-GAAP loss from operations are useful in helping to identify the company’s core operating performance and enables management to consistently analyze the period-to-period financial performance of the core business operations. Management also believes that non-GAAP operating expenses, and non-GAAP loss from operations, will enable investors to assess the company in the same way that management has historically assessed the company’s operating expenses against comparable companies with conventional accounting methodologies. The company’s definitions of adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross profit margin, non-GAAP operating expenses and non-GAAP loss from operations have limitations as analytical tools and may differ from other companies reporting similarly named measures. Non-GAAP measures should not be considered measures of financial performance under GAAP, and the items excluded from such non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as alternatives to financial statement data presented in the financial statements as an indicator of financial performance or liquidity. Non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results.

For a reconciliation of our historical adjusted gross profit margin, non-GAAP operating expenses and non-GAAP loss from operations presented herein to gross profit margin, GAAP operating expenses and GAAP loss from operations, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, please see “Reconciliation of Gross Profit Margin to Adjusted Gross Profit Margin” and “Reconciliation of GAAP Operating Expenses and GAAP Loss from Operations to Non-GAAP Operating Expenses and Non-GAAP Loss from Operations” in the financial schedules below.
