11/05/18

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Nevro Corp. (NYSE: NVRO), a global medical device company that is providing innovative evidence-based solutions for the treatment of chronic pain, today reported financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018.

Third Quarter Financial Results

Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was $95.6 million versus $82.3 million during the same period of the prior year, representing 16% growth as reported. U.S. revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was $79.6 million, representing 20% growth. International revenue was $16.0 million, representing growth of 4% in constant currency. The increase in revenue was primarily attributable to the continued adoption of the Senza system.

Gross profit for the three months ended September 30, 2018 was $67.2 million, representing a 70% gross margin, up from $57.9 million, representing a 70% gross margin, in the same period of the prior year.

Operating expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2018 were $76.5 million compared to $62.4 million in the same period of the prior year, representing an increase of 23%. The increase in operating expenses was driven primarily by increased headcount and related personnel costs, as we continue to development our U.S. sales force, as well as an increase in development expenses.   

Net loss from operations for the third quarter of 2018 was $9.2 million compared to $4.4 million for the same period of the prior year.

Revenue Guidance for Full Year 2018

Nevro expects worldwide revenue to be at the low end of its previously stated range of $385.0 million to $390.0 million for 2018.
