First Quarter 2019 Financial Results

 

Revenues for the first quarter of 2019 increased by 10.7% to $6.1 million, compared to $5.5 million in the same quarter in 2018. Revenue growth was mainly due to an increase in U.S. WatchPAT sales and offset due to sales seasonality in Japan.

 

U.S. WatchPAT revenues for the first quarter of 2019 increased by 34.2% to $4.3 million, compared to $3.2 million in the same quarter in 2018. Sales from disposables and renewable products were approximately 65% of WatchPAT revenues in the U.S. in the first quarter of 2019, similar to the first quarter of 2018.

Operating loss for the first quarter of 2019 was $1.3 million, compared to $0.9 million in the same period in 2018. The increase in operating loss was mainly due to an increase of $0.9 million in selling and marketing expenses as a result of an increase in employee-related costs, primarily related to the expansion of the of the U.S. sale team into new geographical territories, partially offset by the increase in revenues.
