Tandem Diabetes Care Announces First Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Second Quarter 2020 Sales Guidance Provided, Annual Guidance Withdrawn

Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc. (NASDAQ: TNDM), a leading insulin delivery and diabetes technology company, today reported its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. In addition, due to the unknown depth and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company provided sales guidance for the second quarter 2020 and has withdrawn its financial guidance for the year ending December 31, 2020.

First Quarter 2020 Highlights

In comparing the first quarter of 2020 to the same period of 2019:

  • Worldwide pump shipments increased 18 percent to 17,378 pumps from 14,732 pumps
  • Sales increased 48 percent to $97.9 million from $66.0 million
  • Gross margin for both periods was 51 percent
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) improved to 4 percent of sales from less than 1 percent of sales

"In the face of the current pandemic, our employees have demonstrated incredible flexibility and adaptability to prioritize the well-being of the diabetes community," said John Sheridan, president and chief executive officer. "We delivered robust financial results in the first quarter and continue to support the needs of our customers and their healthcare providers through our products, systems and services, which were designed with modern features that provide even greater benefit in this environment."

First Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Domestic pump shipments increased 36 percent to 13,158 pumps in the first quarter of 2020 from 9,669 pumps in the same period of 2019. Domestic sales were $79.5 million, or an increase of 46 percent compared to $54.7 million in the first quarter of 2019. International pump shipments decreased 17 percent to 4,220 pumps in the first quarter of 2020 from 5,063 pumps in the same period of 2019. International sales were $18.4 million, or an increase of 62 percent compared to $11.3 million in the first quarter of 2019.

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2020 increased 51 percent to $50.3 million, compared to $33.4 million for the same period of 2019. Gross margin was 51 percent for both periods. These included a non-cash stock-based compensation charge of $2.2 million in the first quarter of 2020 compared to $1.1 million for the same period of 2019, or 2 percent of sales in both periods.

For the first quarter of 2020, operating expenses totaled $63.8 million, compared to $44.4 million for the same period of 2019. Operating expenses included a non-cash charge for stock-based compensation of $13.7 million, compared to stock-based compensation of $8.7 million for the same period of 2019. Operating loss totaled $13.6 million, compared to $11.0 million for the same period of 2019. Operating margin for the first quarter of 2020 improved to negative 14 percent compared to negative 17 percent for the same period of 2019. For the first quarter of 2020, adjusted EBITDA(1) was $4.1 million, or 4 percent of sales, compared to $0.3 million, or less than 1 percent of sales, for the same period of 2019.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2020 was $14.9 million, which included a $1.9 million non-cash charge for the change in fair value of certain outstanding warrants. This compared to a net loss of $23.0 million for the first quarter of 2019, which included a $12.7 million non-cash charge for the change in fair value of certain warrants outstanding at that time.

(1) EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as net income (loss) excluding income taxes, interest and other non-operating items and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA further adjusts for the change in fair value of common stock warrants and non-cash stock-based compensation expense. This definition of Adjusted EBITDA may differ from similar measures used by other companies, even when similar terms are used to identify such measures. Adjusted EBITDA is a key measure used by the Company to evaluate operating performance, generate future operating plans and make strategic decisions for the allocation of capital. The Company presents Adjusted EBITDA to provide information that may assist investors in understanding its financial results. However, Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a substitute for net loss.

Cash Balance and Liquidity

As of March 31, 2020, the Company had $160.2 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments. This represents a $16.3 million decrease in the first quarter of 2020.

2020 Guidance

"Even in this challenging environment, we still anticipate domestic growth compared to the second quarter of last year based on the overwhelmingly positive customer feedback on our t:slim X2 with Control-IQ technology," said Leigh Vosseller, executive vice president and chief financial officer. "We feel it is prudent to focus our guidance on the near term taking into consideration the unpredictable impact of the current pandemic on our business operations."

For the quarter ending June 30, 2020, sales are estimated to be at least $85 million, including international sales of approximately $10 million. For the year ending December 31, 2020, the Company has withdrawn its financial guidance.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Certain non-GAAP financial measures are presented in this press release, including adjusted EBITDA, to provide information that may assist investors in understanding the Company’s financial results and assessing its prospects for future performance. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are important indicators of our operating performance because they exclude items that are unrelated to, and may not be indicative of, our core operating results. These non-GAAP financial measures, as we calculate them, may not necessarily be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies and may not be appropriate measures for comparing the performance of other companies relative to the Company. These non-GAAP financial results are not intended to represent, and should not be considered to be more meaningful measures than, or alternatives to, measures of operating performance as determined in accordance with GAAP. To the extent we utilize such non-GAAP financial measures in the future, we expect to calculate them using a consistent method from period to period. A reconciliation of each of the GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable non-GAAP financial measures has been provided under the heading "Reconciliation of GAAP versus Non-GAAP Financial Results" in the financial statement tables attached to this press release. Consistent with SEC regulations, we have not provided a reconciliation of forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in reliance on the "unreasonable efforts" exception set forth in the applicable regulations, because there is substantial uncertainty associated with predicting any future adjustments that we may make to our GAAP financial measures in calculating our non-GAAP financial measures.

The Company’s actual results may differ materially from those indicated in these forward-looking statements due to numerous risks and uncertainties.
