MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Inspire Medical Systems, Inc. (NYSE: INSP) (Inspire), a medical technology company focused on the development and commercialization of innovative, minimally invasive solutions for patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2023.

Recent Business Highlights

  • Generated revenue of $151.1 million in the second quarter of 2023, a 65% increase over the same quarter last year
  • Achieved gross margin of 83.9% in the second quarter of 2023
  • Activated 72 new centers in the U.S. in the second quarter of 2023, bringing the total to 1,045 U.S. medical centers providing Inspire therapy
  • Created 19 new U.S. sales territories in the second quarter of 2023, bringing the total to 261 U.S. sales territories
  • Submitted the Inspire V neurostimulator PMA supplement application to the FDA
  • Received FDA approval for Apnea Hypopnea Index (AHI) indication expansion and increased Body Mass Index (BMI) labeling
  • Received FDA approval for the SleepSync™ physician programmer

"We are very pleased with our strong performance in the second quarter. Our growth was driven by higher utilization at existing sites and complemented by the addition of 72 new implanting centers and 19 new U.S. sales territories," said Tim Herbert, President, and Chief Executive Officer of Inspire Medical Systems. "Based on our strong first-half results, we are raising our full year 2023 revenue guidance to between $600 million to $610 million, an increase from our prior guidance of $580 million to $590 million."

"We achieved several important milestones in the second quarter," continued Mr. Herbert. "Most importantly, we submitted our Inspire V neurostimulation PMA supplement application to the FDA for review. In addition, we received two key FDA approvals, including an expanded indication, which increases the upper limit of the AHI to 100 events per hour from 65 and raises the BMI warning in the labeling to 40 from 32, and approval for our SleepSync™ physician programmer. Finally, we continued to strengthen our leadership team with the additions of Carlton Weatherby as our Chief Strategy Officer and Charisse Sparks, M.D. as our Chief Medical Officer. We are excited about the expertise and skills these individuals bring to our executive leadership team and are confident their contributions will position us for sustained organic growth over the long term, fulfilling our mission of serving the many patients with untreated OSA,” concluded Mr. Herbert.

Second Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Revenue was $151.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2023, a 65% increase from $91.4 million in the corresponding period in the prior year. U.S. revenue for the quarter was $144.7 million, an increase of 65% as compared to the prior year quarter. Second quarter revenue outside the U.S. was $6.3 million, an increase of 81% as compared to the second quarter of 2022.

Gross margin was 83.9% for the three months ended June 30, 2023, compared to 84.5% for the corresponding prior year period, with the reduction primarily due to additional manufacturing costs of sensors and lower yields prior to process enhancements, and higher costs of certain component parts, partially offset by the price increase that began in May of 2022.

Operating expense increased to $143.4 million for the second quarter of 2023, as compared to $91.2 million in the corresponding prior year period, an increase of 57%. This increase primarily reflected ongoing investments in the expansion of the U.S. sales organization, direct-to-patient marketing programs, continued product development efforts, as well as increased general corporate costs.

Net loss was $12.0 million for the second quarter of 2023, as compared to $14.5 million in the corresponding prior year period. The diluted net loss per share for the second quarter of 2023 was $0.41 per share, as compared to $0.53 in the prior year period.

As of June 30, 2023, cash, cash equivalents, and investments increased to $467.1 million from $451.4 million on December 31, 2022.

Full Year 2023 Guidance

Given the positive trends during the second quarter, Inspire is increasing its full year 2023 revenue guidance to between $600 million to $610 million, which would represent growth of 47% to 50% over full year 2022 revenue of $407.9 million. This compares to the prior revenue guidance of $580 million to $590 million.

The Company is maintaining its full year 2023 gross margin guidance of 83% to 85%.

Inspire is also maintaining its guidance relating to the opening of new U.S. medical centers of 52 to 56 per quarter for the remainder of 2023, as well as its guidance of 12 to 14 new U.S. territories per quarter for the remainder of 2023.
