SAN DIEGO, November 03, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc. (NASDAQ: TNDM), a leading insulin delivery and diabetes technology company, today reported its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2021 and updated its sales guidance for the year ending December 31, 2021.

Third Quarter 2021 Highlights

In comparing the third quarter of 2021 to the same period of 2020:

  • Worldwide pump shipments increased 43 percent to 31,558 pumps from 22,021 pumps

  • Gross margin improved to 54 percent of sales from 53 percent of sales

  • Operating margin improved to 4 percent of sales from negative 1 percent of sales

"We delivered a strong third-quarter performance in a difficult environment and continue to add new customers worldwide at an incredible rate," said John Sheridan, president and chief executive officer. "Our domestic sales force expansion, scaling international launch of Control-IQ technology and depth of our new product pipeline has us well-positioned to drive growth in 2022 and beyond, while delivering upon our mission to provide people a positively different experience in diabetes care."

Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Domestic pump shipments increased 10 percent to 20,296 pumps in the third quarter of 2021 from 18,380 pumps in the same period of 2020. Domestic sales were $133.1 million, an increase of 24 percent compared to $107.5 million in the third quarter of 2020. International pump shipments increased 209 percent to 11,262 pumps in the third quarter of 2021 from 3,641 pumps in the same period of 2020. International sales were $46.5 million, an increase of 189 percent compared to $16.1 million in the third quarter of 2020.

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2021 increased 48 percent to $96.7 million, compared to $65.3 million for the same period of 2020. Gross margin increased to 54 percent in the third quarter of 2021 from 53 percent in the same period of 2020.

For the third quarter of 2021, operating expenses totaled $89.0 million, compared to $66.3 million for the same period of 2020. Operating income totaled $7.7 million, compared to an operating loss of $1.0 million for the same period of 2020. Operating margin for the third quarter of 2021 was 4 percent of sales compared to negative 1 percent for the same period of 2020. For the third quarter of 2021, adjusted EBITDA(1) was $26.9 million, or 15 percent of sales, compared to $14.8 million, or 12 percent of sales, for the same period of 2020.

Net income for the third quarter of 2021 was $5.8 million, which included a $0.4 million non-cash charge for the change in fair value of certain outstanding warrants and $1.5 million of interest expense related to the Company’s convertible senior notes. This is compared to a net loss of $9.4 million for the third quarter of 2020, which included a $3.6 million non-cash charge for the change in fair value of certain warrants outstanding at that time and $4.9 million of interest expense related to the Company’s convertible senior notes.

Cash Balance and Liquidity

As of September 30, 2021, the Company had $595.0 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments. This represents a $49.7 million increase in the third quarter of 2021, and a $110.1 million increase since December 31, 2020.

2021 Annual Guidance Update

For the year ending December 31, 2021, the Company is updating its financial guidance as follows:

  • Sales are estimated to be in the range of $685 million to $695 million, which represents an annual sales growth of 37 percent to 39 percent compared to 2020. The Company’s prior sales guidance for 2021 was estimated to be in the range of $670 million to $685 million.

    • Includes international sales of approximately $168 million to $173 million, which represents an annual sales growth of 102 percent to 108 percent compared to 2020. The Company’s prior international sales guidance for 2021 was estimated to be in the range of $160 million to $165 million.

  • Gross margin is estimated to be approximately 54 percent

  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) is estimated to be approximately 15 percent of sales

  • Non-cash charges included in cost of goods sold and operating expenses are estimated to be approximately $75 million, which include:

    • Approximately $60 million in non-cash, stock-based compensation expense

    • Approximately $15 million of depreciation and amortization

(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 income (loss).

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 will hold a conference call and simultaneous webcast today at 4:30pm Eastern Time (1:30pm Pacific Time).
