  • Raises Full-Year 2023 Net Revenue Guidance from $185 to $195 Million to $194 to $198 Million

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 third quarter ended September 30, 2023.

“The record results of our third quarter reflect the continued strength in sales and consistent execution of our long-term growth strategy,” said David Moatazedi, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Notably, we achieved record quarterly revenue of $50 million, an increase of 48% over the prior year period in what is typically our seasonally lowest quarter. Due to the strong results and continuing momentum, we are increasing our full-year 2023 revenue guidance from between $185 to $195 million to between $194 to $198 million, which equates to over 30% growth for the fiscal year. We continue to exercise disciplined operating expense management and we remain committed to reaching profitability1 in the fourth quarter, excluding our investments related to Evolysse™ and profitability1 including the filler line in 2025.”

Third Quarter 2023 Highlights and Recent Developments

  • The company’s key performance indicators demonstrated continued strong momentum during the third quarter.
    • Evolus added over 650 new customer accounts in the quarter, bringing the total number of customers purchasing since launch to approximately 11,600. The reorder rate among customers remains above 70%.2
    • Members in the Evolus Rewards™ consumer loyalty program grew by 62,800 to 671,000.3
    • Total redemptions for the quarter hit an all-time high of more than 149,000 driven by continued demand from existing patients receiving repeat treatments at the rate of 60%, which demonstrates sustained brand loyalty.

Third Quarter 2023 Financial Results

  • Total net revenues for the third quarter of 2023 increased 48% to $50.0 million from $33.9 million in the third quarter of 2022 driven primarily by higher volumes of Jeuveau®.
  • Gross profit margin and adjusted gross profit margin were 67.7% and 69.1%, respectively. Adjusted gross profit margin, which excludes amortization of intangible assets, was in line with company guidance for the full year, as noted below.
  • Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2023 were $63.5 million, compared to $64.5 million in the second quarter of 2023.
  • Non-GAAP operating expenses for the third quarter of 2023 were $40.3 million, compared to $42.7 million in the second 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 third quarter of 2023 was $13.4 million, compared to $15.1 million in the second quarter of 2023. Non-GAAP loss from operations in the third quarter of 2023 was $5.7 million compared to $8.0 million in the second 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 September 30, 2023 were $38.7 million compared to $41.7 million at June 30, 2023. For the third quarter of 2023, net cash used for operating activities reached an all-time quarterly low of $0.9 million, representing continued progress toward cash flow breakeven. Evolus continues to expect its existing liquidity will fully fund it to profitability1 in 2025.

Final Data from the Phase II Clinical Study with Jeuveau® “Extra-Strength”

Final data from the Phase II clinical study evaluating the “extra-strength” 40U dose for extended duration of Jeuveau® (prabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs), the only neurotoxin dedicated exclusively to aesthetics, were presented by study investigators at the 2023 American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (“ASDS”) Annual Meeting on November 3, 2023, in Chicago, and demonstrated 26 weeks, or 6 months, of duration with the extra-strength dose of 40U across multiple measurements.

“We are incredibly pleased to report the results of the completed Phase II trial, which provides important insights about the role of this formulation in achieving longer-lasting results,” said Rui Avelar, M.D., Chief Medical Officer and Head of Research and Development. “This data contributes to the body of knowledge regarding the role of increasing dose and the impact on extended duration and will be of interest to health care providers and patients.”

“This is an important milestone for our company as we continue on our long-term strategic journey to become a global performance beauty company,” said Mr. Moatazedi. “The final results of our completed ‘extra-strength’ study provide our growing consumer base an option of a longer duration product which can help customers and their patients achieve their desired results for longer.”

Jeuveau® is approved for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe vertical lines between the eyebrows seen at maximum frown (glabellar lines) in adults below 65 years of age. Through the company’s TRANSPARENCY Clinical Program, Jeuveau® was clinically proven to temporarily improve moderate to severe glabellar lines or “11’s” in adults and included the largest head-to-head pivotal study versus BOTOX®. The product is approved for sale in the U.S. under the brand name Jeuveau® and in Europe and Canada under the brand name Nuceiva® and received regulatory approval in Australia in January 2023.

Outlook

  • Evolus now expects total net revenues for the full year 2023 to be between $194 and $198 million, representing year-over-year growth of greater than 30% and magnitudes above the estimated growth rate of the aesthetic neurotoxin market.
  • 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 and $158 million.
  • The company continues to expect to achieve positive non-GAAP operating income on a consolidated basis in 2025 and remains fully funded to expected profitability.1
  • 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.
