Establishes new line of business, adds recurring revenue stream while more than doubling dermatology customer base across the state
Expected to add $1.0 million in revenues over the next 12 months and to be immediately accretive to earnings
Management from both companies to assume leadership roles at new division, Sensus Laser Aesthetic Solutions
BOCA RATON, Fla. (August 4, 2020) – Sensus Healthcare, Inc. (Nasdaq: SRTS), a medical device company specializing in highly effective, non-invasive, minimally-invasive and cost-effective treatments for oncological and non-oncological conditions, announces the acquisition of two mobile aesthetic laser companies serving the State of Florida: Aesthetic Mobile Laser Services, which serves Southeast and Southwest Florida; and Aesthetic Laser Partners, which serves Central and Northern Florida. These transactions will add approximately $1.0 million in revenues over the next 12 months, assuming dermatology clinics will be at 80% of their pre-COVID-19 patient levels, and will be immediately accretive to earnings. Both were all-cash transactions and neither has any associated earn-outs or contingency payments. Additional financial terms were not disclosed.
Aesthetic Mobile Laser Services and Aesthetic Laser Partners each has been in business for more than two decades and both have a high level of customer trust and satisfaction. Together they have approximately 30 lasers and six vans, and service some 150+ dermatology practices in Florida alone, including more than 500 dermatologists who are not current Sensus customers. Their lasers facilitate a wide range of in-office aesthetic dermatology procedures including facial rejuvenation, wrinkle removal, body sculpting/fat removal as well as other aesthetic applications.
“These acquisitions are the first step in an exciting new and significant growth strategy for Sensus that complements our laser products soon to debut,” said Joe Sardano, chief executive officer of Sensus Healthcare. “These two established and highly-regarded companies offer mobile aesthetic laser units across all of Florida, and provide us with access to new dermatology accounts for our Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT) systems as well as for an introduction to our new line of lasers, expected to be launched later this year.
“From a financial perspective, we look forward to a meaningful contribution to sales over the coming year and beyond, with immediate accretion to EBITDA and earnings,” Mr. Sardano continued. “Dermatology practices that are starting to reopen are focusing on self-pay procedures in order to begin recovering the extensive revenue they lost due to the impact of the coronavirus. As such, the timing to begin this initiative is ideal.
“We plan to add to these mobile offerings with our own aesthetic laser products once we receive U.S. Food and Drug Administration 510(k) clearance, expected by year-end,” he added. “These new lasers will be equipped with our Sentinel™ IT Solutions software, which provides asset management and HIPPAA-compliant patient data and storage capability. The Sentinel IT Solutions package also contains the software necessary to support shared service models including direct patient billing. This will further transform Sensus into a technology solutions company with our customers experiencing the benefits of ‘smart’ technology.
“Over time, we will consider the acquisition of additional mobile laser providers in certain other states. There are ample opportunities to explore and the time is right, with an aging population increasingly focused on aesthetics, and practice valuations at attractive levels,” he added.
Related to this announcement, Sensus has named Paul Miano and Matthew Hufford to executive positions with a newly-formed division, Sensus Laser Aesthetic Solutions (SLAS). Mr. Miano, previously founder at Aesthetic Mobile Laser Services, will serve as Vice President of the division, and Mr. Hufford, previously founder at Aesthetic Laser Partners, will be Regional Manager for Central and Northern Florida.
Mr. Miano brings to Sensus 21 years of operational services experience as he built a consistent and reliable services model that customers throughout the Southeast and Southwest regions of Florida learned to trust and enjoy.
Mr. Hufford has a demonstrated history of working in the health wellness and fitness industry. Skilled in medical devices, sales, account management and marketing, he joined Aesthetic Laser Partners in 2000 as an account representative and laser technician, followed by positions of increasing responsibility until purchasing the company in 2012.
“I have known Paul, Matt and their companies for over eight years, and am impressed by their operational ability to grow their businesses through trust and reliable service. We are extremely excited to embark on this next phase of growth, supported by these two exceptional individuals,” Mr. Sardano concluded.
Commenting on the transaction, Mr. Miano said, “All of us at Aesthetic Mobile Laser Services are excited to join the team at Sensus Healthcare. We are confident in the leadership of Joe Sardano and the Sensus team, and our combined abilities to further develop the aesthetic mobile device business and other opportunities that will result from the synergies that exist between our companies.”
Mr. Hufford added, “I’m excited to work with Joe Sardano and his team at Sensus Healthcare. By being acquired by Sensus we have the opportunity to grow and expand a proven model in Florida and throughout the U.S.”
The Company plans to provide additional information on these acquisitions during its second quarter conference call on August 6, 2020 at 4:30 p.m. ET.
