Evolus, Inc. (Nasdaq: EOLS), a performance beauty company with a customer-centric approach focused on delivering breakthrough products, today provides a business update and reports financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019.

“This was an exceptional quarter for the company on many fronts, in the U.S. and internationally,” said David Moatazedi, President and Chief Executive Officer. “In our first full quarter on the U.S. market, we reported $13.2 million in net revenue and Jeuveau® captured the number three market position1. We established a broad base of over 2,000 accounts ordering Jeuveau®. During the third quarter, re-orders represented an increasing portion of our revenue with a steady increase of new accounts month-over-month.”

“Internationally, we obtained approval for Nuceiva in the European Union giving us access to 31 countries across Europe and we look forward to commercial launch in 2020. Additionally, Nuceiva recently launched in Canada,” said David Moatazedi.

Third Quarter 2019 Financial Results

  • Net revenue for the third quarter of 2019 totaled $13.2 million, up from $2.3 million during the second quarter of 2019.
  • Gross margin was 72% in the third quarter of 2019 up from 71% in the second quarter of 2019.
  • Net loss for the third quarter of 2019 was $27.0 million compared with $37.6 million for the second quarter of 2019, an improvement of $10.6 million which was mostly driven by increased Jeuveau® sales in the third quarter of 2019.
  • GAAP operating expenses and GAAP loss from operations for the third quarter of 2019 were $34.6 million and $25.1 million, respectively. GAAP operating expenses and GAAP loss from operations each were $11.5 million in the third quarter of 2018. The increase in GAAP operating expenses and GAAP loss from operations in 2019 was primarily attributable to higher personnel-related expenses as a result of hiring our U.S. sales force, marketing expenses for the U.S. launch of Jeuveau® and the build out of our corporate infrastructure.
  • Non-GAAP operating expenses and non-GAAP loss from operations for the third quarter of 2019 were $29.1 million and $19.6 million, respectively. Non-GAAP operating expenses and non-GAAP loss from operations each were $7.7 million in the third quarter of 2018. Non-GAAP operating expenses and non-GAAP loss from operations for the third quarter of 2019 were calculated as operating expenses and loss from operations excluding stock-based compensation of $2.5 million, expense resulting from the revaluation of the contingent royalty obligation of $1.8 million and depreciation and amortization of $1.2 million.
  • As of September 30, 2019, the company had total cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of $74.0 million and 27.4 million shares of common stock outstanding.
