Insulet Reports Third Quarter 2014 Results

Revenue Up 23% and Gross Profit Up 39% Year Over Year; Company Achieves Net Breakeven, Excluding One-Time Charges

BILLERICA, MA--(Marketwired - Nov 5, 2014) - Insulet Corporation (NASDAQ: PODD), the leader in tubeless insulin pump technology with its OmniPod® Insulin Management System, today announced financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014. 

Third Quarter Results

Third quarter 2014 revenue increased 23% to $75.0 million, compared to $61.1 million in the third quarter of 2013. Gross profit for the third quarter of 2014 rose 39% to $38.0 million from $27.4 million for the third quarter of 2013. The Company continued to expand gross margin in the third quarter of 2014, reaching 51%, compared to 45% in the third quarter of 2013.

"The revenue and gross profit levels we achieved in the third quarter demonstrate our continued focus on driving demand for the OmniPod with people living with Type I diabetes," said Patrick Sullivan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Insulet. "In my first fifty days at Insulet, I've had the opportunity to gain a much deeper understanding of our Company, and my enthusiasm for this business and its future has grown significantly. We are well poised for continued growth with the easiest-to-use, most innovative product in the insulin delivery market with a pipeline of initiatives that will continually raise the bar for years to come."

Operating expenses were $40.9 million in the third quarter of 2014, compared to $44.7 million in the third quarter of 2013. During the third quarter of 2014, the Company recorded approximately $7 million of additional compensation expense relating to the recent CEO transition. The additional compensation charge was primarily related to non-cash amounts. Operating expenses in the third quarter of 2013 included approximately $10 million related to the legal and settlement costs associated with the Medtronic patent litigation, which was settled in September 2013. 

Operating loss for the third quarter of 2014 was $2.9 million, compared to an operating loss of $17.3 million in the third quarter of 2013, an improvement of more than 80%. Excluding the one-time compensation charges, the Company would have reported an operating profit of approximately $4 million for the third quarter of 2014. 

Interest and other expense was $7.9 million in the third quarter of 2014, compared to $4.0 million in the third quarter of 2013. The increase in interest and other expense is due to the $4.3 million loss recorded relating to the conversion of the remaining 3.75% Senior Convertible Notes in the third quarter for approximately $28.8 million in cash and 349,000 shares of common stock. All 3.75% Senior Convertible Notes were retired as of September 30, 2014.

Excluding the loss on the early extinguishment of debt and the compensation charges related to the CEO transition, the Company reached breakeven results at the net income line and on an earnings per share basis in the third quarter of 2014. Net loss for the third quarter of 2014 was $10.8 million, or $0.19 per share, compared to a net loss of $21.3 million, or $0.39 per share, for the third quarter of 2013.

Nine Month Results

For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, revenue increased 21% to $216.2 million from $178.6 million for the first nine months of 2013. Gross profit for the first nine months of 2014 was $106.6 million, as compared to a gross profit of $79.4 million in the first nine months of 2013. Operating loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $10.0 million, as compared to an operating loss of $29.3 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2013. Net loss for the first nine months of 2014 was $46.1 million, or $0.83 per share, compared to $42.5 million, or $0.79 per share, for the first nine months of 2013. 

As of September 30, 2014, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $146.4 million compared to $149.7 million at December 31, 2013.

For the year ending December 31, 2014, the Company revised its estimate of revenue to be in the range of $292 to $297 million. For the fourth quarter of 2014, the Company expects that revenue will be in the range of $76 to $81 million.
