Fourth Quarter Financial Results

Revenue for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 was $70.5 million versus $33.1 million during the same period of the prior year, representing 113% growth as reported. U.S. revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2016 was $56.0 million, representing 183% growth as reported. International revenue was $14.5 million, representing growth of 12% in constant currency and 9% on an as-reported basis. The increase in revenue was primarily attributable to the continued adoption of the Senza system.

Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $48.8 million, representing a 69% gross margin, up from $20.4 million, representing a 61% gross margin, in the same period of the prior year.  Gross margins increased year-over-year primarily due to fundamental cost improvements.

Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2016 were $55.1 million compared to $33.5 million in the same period of the prior year, representing an increase of 65%. The increase in operating expenses was driven primarily by increased headcount and related personnel costs, marketing programs, and clinical trial and development expenses.

Revenue Guidance for Full Year 2017
