Viveve Reports Third Quarter 2014 Financial Results

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - November 14, 2014) - Viveve Medical, Inc. ("Viveve") (PINKSHEETS: VIVMF), the parent company to Viveve, Inc., a company focused on women's health, today reported financial results for the period ended September 30, 2014. These results are the first financial results reported for Viveve following the merger of Viveve, Inc. with PLC Systems, Inc.

"With the completion of our recent financing transactions we believe we are now in a position to successfully execute our strategic plans," said Patricia Scheller, Viveve's Chief Executive Officer. "Our focus has been and will continue to be driving commercialization through the attainment of necessary regulatory clearances, generating differentiating clinical data and increasing awareness about a condition that affects millions of women worldwide. We believe our treatment provides the first real hope in the effort to effectively address vaginal introital laxity."

Recent Business Highlights

  • Became publicly traded under the symbol VIVMF following the completion of the merger of Viveve, Inc. and PLC Systems, Inc.
  • Successfully raised $6 million in equity capital, including the conversion of $1.5 million in outstanding debt, to support additional clinical and global commercialization efforts
  • Secured a $5 million term loan (of which Viveve, Inc. has drawn $2.5 million) to fund working capital, as we begin to more aggressively pursue sales of the Viveve System
  • Preparing for the imminent launch of the VIVEVE I clinical trial in Europe and Canada

Financial Results

Research and development expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2014 totaled $572,134, compared to research and development expense of $177,203 for the three months ended September 30, 2013, an increase of $394,931, or approximately 223%. Spending on research and development increased in the third quarter of 2014 as we prepared for our OUS Clinical Trial and incurred costs associated with the trial's implementation. Research and development further increased due to additional engineering work related to certain product improvement efforts.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2014 totaled $1,790,014, compared to $532,369 for the three months ended September 30, 2013, an increase of $1,257,645, or approximately 236%. The increase in general and administrative expenses was primarily attributable to additional professional services related expenses associated with our recent merger and to a lesser degree greater spending to build inventory and brand and market awareness.

Net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2014 was $2,504,159 or a loss of $0.52 per share, compared with a net loss of $871,893, or a loss of $0.23 per share, for the three months ended September 30, 2013.

Cash and cash equivalents were $1,976,980 as of September 30, 2014, an increase of $1,546,873 from $430,107 as of December 31, 2013.

About Viveve

Viveve, Inc., the operating subsidiary of Viveve Medical, Inc., is a women's health company passionately committed to advancing new solutions to improve women's overall well-being and quality of life. The company's lead product, the Viveve® System, is a non-surgical, non-ablative medical device that remodels collagen and restores tissue. The Viveve System treats the condition of vaginal laxity, which is the result of the over-stretching of tissue during childbirth that can result in a decrease in physical sensation and sexual satisfaction. Physician surveys indicate that vaginal laxity is the number one post-delivery physical change for women, being more prevalent than weight gain, urinary incontinence or stretch marks. The Viveve Treatment uses patented, reverse-thermal gradient radiofrequency technology to tighten the tissues of the vaginal introitus (opening) and requires only a 30-minute out-patient treatment in a physician's office. The Viveve System has received regulatory approval in Europe, Canada and Hong Kong and is available through physician import license in Japan. It is currently not available for sale in the U.S. For more information, please visit Viveve's website at
