TORONTO, Jan. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Venus Concept Inc. (“Venus Concept” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: VERO), a global medical aesthetic technology leader, today reported preliminary unaudited revenue results for the three months ended December 31, 2021.

Management Commentary:

“Fourth quarter revenue results reflect strong global demand from customers and strong execution of our focused commercial strategy,” said Domenic Serafino, Chief Executive Officer of Venus Concept. “We delivered revenue growth for this quarter of more than 30% year-over-year in the United States and 20% revenue growth year-over-year in international markets. Sales to international customers increased 44% on a quarter-over-quarter basis, despite continued global supply disruptions related to COVID-19 which resulted in a backlog for customer purchase orders received of $1.1 million at quarter-end. Total systems and subscription revenue increased approximately 36% year-over-year in the fourth quarter fueled by continued strong adoption of Venus Bliss and a record quarter for system adoption in our hair restoration business where revenue increased more than 60% year-over-year in Q4.”

Mr. Serafino continued: “While the operating environment continues to be challenging, our confidence in the long-term outlook for Venus Concept remains high. We expect to drive total Company revenue growth of at least 20% in fiscal year 2022 fueled by strong execution of our focused commercial strategy and material contributions to growth from new product introductions – particularly the Venus Bliss Max beginning in the second-half of 2022. We also expect to drive continued improvements in our operating leverage, with the goal of generating positive cash flow in the fourth quarter of 2022. We are very excited about the prospects for our AIme device, our non-surgical robotic technology platform, that we believe has the potential to disrupt initially the skin tightening and directional lifting market, with plans to add additional clinical applications in the years to come. The clinical validation phase continues to progress; we expect to begin enrollment in AIme’s human clinical study later this month which, depending on the pace of enrollment, has us on track to meet our goal for study completion by the end of the third quarter of 2022, and submission for FDA 510(k) clearance as soon as possible thereafter.”

Preliminary Fourth Quarter 2021 Revenue Summary:

  • Preliminary total GAAP revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2021 is expected to be in the range of $32.0 million to $33.0 million, compared to total GAAP revenue of $25.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020, representing an increase of 24% to 28% year-over-year.
