• Q2 2023 Net Revenue of $49.3 Million, Up 33% from Q2 2022
  • Raises Full-Year 2023 Net Revenue Guidance to $185 to $195 Million
  • On Track to Achieving Sustained Profitability with Existing Cash

 

Evolus, Inc. (NASDAQ: EOLS), a performance beauty company with a focus on building an aesthetic portfolio of consumer brands, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2023 and provided a business update.

“The results of our second quarter clearly demonstrate an acceleration of trends and consistent execution of our long-term growth strategy,” said David Moatazedi, President and Chief Executive Officer. “With record quarterly revenue as well as all-time highs across several leading indicators, we are generating very strong momentum and significantly outpacing the underlying growth of our markets. Our continued success gave us the confidence to increase our 2023 sales guidance to between $185 and $195 million, which equates to over 30% growth at the upper end of our range.

“From a financial standpoint, once again this quarter we continued to exercise disciplined operating expense management and we remain committed to reaching sustained profitability1 in 2025. While we are very excited about the continued momentum in our toxin line, we expect the addition of our portfolio of dermal fillers will expand our total addressable market by 70%2 over the next five years driving us to $700 million of revenue by 2028 – a 29% CAGR on the top line. Evolus has a clear path to exceptional growth, we are fully funded to achieve that growth through expected profitability, and we have an experienced team in place to execute our growth plan.”

Second Quarter 2023 Highlights and Recent Developments

  • The company’s key performance indicators demonstrated continued strong momentum reaching record levels during the second quarter.
    • Evolus added nearly 800 new customer accounts in the quarter, the highest amount since the launch year, bringing the total number of customers purchasing since launch to approximately 11,000. The reorder rate among customers remains above 70%.3
    • Enrollment in the Evolus Rewards™ consumer loyalty program grew by 64,000 members to 638,0004.
    • Total treatments for the quarter hit an all-time high of more than 147,000 as existing users continued to return for repeat treatments of Jeuveau® at a rate of nearly 60%, demonstrating sustained brand loyalty. During the quarter, the company completed the one-millionth treatment in its easy-to-use, text-based Evolus Rewards™ program.
  • Evolus completed its Phase 2 clinical study evaluating an “extra-strength” dose for an extended duration of Jeuveau®. Presentation of the final dataset is planned for a medical meeting in the fourth quarter of 2023.
  • The company continued to expand its presence in Europe with the launch of Nuceiva® in Italy, one of the largest aesthetic toxin markets in the region.

Second Quarter 2023 Financial Results

  • Total net revenues for the second quarter of 2023 increased 33% to $49.3 million from $37.2 million in the second quarter of 2022 driven primarily by higher volumes of Jeuveau®.
  • Gross profit margin and adjusted gross profit margin were 68.7% and 70.2%, respectively. Adjusted gross profit margin, which excludes amortization of intangible assets, was in line with company guidance.
  • Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2023 were $64.5 million, which included a $4.4 million milestone payment to Symatese for the U.S. filler license, compared to $53.8 million in the first quarter of 2023.
  • Non-GAAP operating expenses for the second quarter of 2023 were $42.7 million, which included a $4.4 million milestone payment to Symatese for the U.S. filler license, compared to $35.5 million in the first quarter of 2023. Non-GAAP operating expenses exclude product cost of sales, stock-based compensation expense, revaluation of the contingent royalty obligation, and depreciation and amortization.
  • Loss from operations for the second quarter of 2023 was $15.1 million, which included the $4.4 million license milestone expense, compared to $12.0 million in the first quarter of 2023. Non-GAAP loss from operations in the second quarter of 2023 was $8.0 million, which included the $4.4 million license milestone expense. Excluding the milestone expense, non-GAAP loss from operations in the second quarter of 2023 declined compared to the $5.9 million non-GAAP loss from operations recorded in the first quarter of 2023. Non-GAAP loss from operations excludes stock-based compensation expense, revaluation of the contingent royalty obligation, and depreciation and amortization.
  • Cash and cash equivalents at June 30, 2023 were $41.7 million compared to $31.5 million at March 31, 2023. The cash balance at June 30, 2023 included additional borrowings of $25 million under the company’s credit facility with Pharmakon. For the second quarter of 2023, net cash used for operating activities was $13.3 million, which included the $4.4 million license milestone expense. Net cash used for operating activities in the second quarter of 2023 was lower than the first quarter of 2023, representing continued progress toward cash flow breakeven. Evolus continues to expect its existing cash will fully fund it to sustained profitability1 in 2025.

Outlook

  • Evolus now expects total net revenues for the full year 2023 to be between $185 million and $195 million, representing year-over-year growth of over 30% at the upper end of the range and more than three times the estimated growth rate of the aesthetic neurotoxin market. The company also assumes a return to industry seasonal revenue patterns.
  • The company continues to expect its adjusted gross profit margin for the full year 2023 to be between 68% and 71%.
  • Evolus continues to expect its full-year non-GAAP operating expenses to be between $153 million and $158 million.
  • The company continues to expect to achieve sustained positive non-GAAP operating income on a consolidated basis in 2025 and remains fully funded to profitability1 without the need to raise additional capital.
  • The company projects its total net revenue can reach $700 million by 2028, a compound annual growth rate of 29%, based on the combination of its existing aesthetic neurotoxin business and anticipated launch of the Evolysse™ HA dermal filler product line beginning in 2025.

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 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 (i) product cost of sales, in the case of non-GAAP operating expenses only, (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 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,” “Reconciliation of GAAP Operating Expenses to Non-GAAP Operating Expenses” and “Reconciliation of GAAP (Loss) from Operations to Non-GAAP (Loss) from Operations” in the financial schedules below. In addition, this press release includes information regarding the company’s expected adjusted gross profit margin and non-GAAP operating expenses for full year 2023. Evolus has not provided a reconciliation of such forward-looking non-GAAP adjusted gross profit margin, non-GAAP operating expenses or non-GAAP operating income because a reconciliation of such measures to GAAP gross profit margin, GAAP operating expenses and GAAP operating income, respectively, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, is not available without unreasonable efforts. This is due to the inherent difficulty of forecasting the timing or amount of various reconciling items that would impact the forward-looking outlook for these non-GAAP financial measures that have not yet occurred and/or cannot be reasonably predicted. Such unavailable information could have a significant impact on Evolus’ GAAP financial results.
