SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Silk Road Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: SILK), a company focused on reducing the risk of stroke and its devastating impact, today reported financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2020.
“We had a strong third quarter in which our revenues grew 18% year over year. Our patient first culture and unwavering commitment to reduce stroke risk are evidenced by our recent milestone of 25,000 cumulative procedures,” said Erica Rogers, President and Chief Executive Officer of Silk Road Medical. “We are continuing to make meaningful investments in our team and our strategic priorities, paving the way for the bright future ahead of us.”
Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results
Revenue for the third quarter of 2020 was $20.1 million, an increase of $3.0 million or 18%, compared to the third quarter of 2019.
Gross profit for the third quarter of 2020 was $14.6 million compared to $12.9 million for the third quarter of 2019. Gross margin for the third quarter of 2020 declined to 73% compared to 76% in the third quarter of 2019, driven by unfavorable production variances as a result of temporarily idled manufacturing operations early in the quarter related to COVID-19 and previously announced investments in manufacturing engineering and infrastructure projects.
Operating expenses were $23.9 million for the third quarter of 2020, compared to $20.3 million in the corresponding prior year period, which represents an increase of 18%. The increase was driven by selling, general and administrative expenses related to growth in personnel and product development initiatives and partially offset by the continued reduction in travel, tradeshow and other expenses due to COVID-19.
Net loss was $10.3 million in the third quarter of 2020, or a loss of $0.31 per share, as compared to a loss of $8.0 million, or $0.26 per share, in the corresponding period of the prior year.
On October 29, 2020, the Company refinanced its long-term debt at a lower cost of capital with a $50.0 million loan facility.
Cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments were $153.9 million as of September 30, 2020.
