BOCA RATON, Fla. (November 4, 2021) – 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 financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021.
Highlights from the third quarter of 2021 and recent weeks include the following (all comparisons are with the third quarter of 2020, unless otherwise indicated):
“The third quarter and subsequent weeks featured several encouraging events that bode well for continued sales growth, not only in the fourth quarter but through 2022,” said Joe Sardano, chairman and chief executive officer of Sensus Healthcare. “We reported our first profitable third quarter in our company’s history, and based on a robust backlog of orders we believe Sensus will report positive net income for 2021.
“Our domestic business is significantly improved compared with the pandemic-impacted third quarter of 2020, with 14 systems shipped including eight premium SRT-100 Vision™ systems. We are highly encouraged by the reception our new fair-market-leasing program has received to date. Our physician customers are beginning to take advantage of this offering and its ability to provide a positive ROI for the SRT-100 Vision by treating just two patients per month. In addition, our organization has done an excellent job in articulating the improved CMS reimbursement rates that went into effect at the start of the year, along with the benefits of SRT to a growing number of physicians. This has led to improved patient volumes at customer sites, as well.
“Our SRT systems were well received at last month’s Fall Clinical held live in Las Vegas and virtually. This conference provided the opportunity for us to demonstrate our technology in person for the first time in more than 18 months, and interest in our products and the number of new sales leads both were strong. In addition, conference presentations on the safety and efficacy of SRT, and discussions of improved reimbursement by key opinion leaders supported our presence.”
Mr. Sardano continued, “International sales continue to be promising, in particular in China where we engaged a new distribution partner, Ekpac Healthcare, late last year. During the third quarter we sold an SRT-100 system in China, our sixth of the year. We expect to sell additional systems in China in the coming months. Importantly, the Chinese Health Authority renewed our license to market the SRT-100 system for an additional five years. This new license runs through December 2026 and covers the sale of the Company’s superficial radiation therapy to treat non-melanoma skin cancer and keloids.
“Our acquisition of mobile aesthetic laser companies in Florida last year and the formation of Sensus Laser Aesthetic Solutions (SLAS) were smart steps to increase our customer base, provide a beachhead for further acquisitions and improve access to laser technology. The integration of our Sentinel™ IT Solutions software into our proprietary lasers is complete, and these lasers are now available through SLAS. We implemented creative leasing options for our lasers and believe the combination of Sentinel technology – which provides asset management and HIPAA-compliant patient data and storage capability, and also contains the software to support shared service models including direct patient billing – is an important avenue for growth.”
Mr. Sardano concluded, “The resumption of significant sales following peak pandemic months, along with a keen focus on expenses position Sensus for a profitable fourth quarter and full year.”
Revenues for the third quarter of 2021 were $5.5 million compared with $1.6 million for the third quarter of 2020. The 244% increase was primarily driven by a higher number of units sold in 2021, service revenue on installed units and the impact of COVID-19 on the third quarter of 2020.
Cost of sales for the third quarter of 2021 was $2.3 million compared with $0.9 million for the prior-year quarter. The increase was due to higher sales in the 2021 period.
Gross profit for the third quarter of 2021 was $3.2 million, or 57.9% of revenues, compared with $0.7 million, or 41.5% of revenues, for the third quarter of 2020. The increase in gross profit was primarily driven by the higher number of units sold in 2021, service revenue on installed units and the impact of COVID-19 on the 2020 quarter.
Selling and marketing expense for the third quarter of 2021 was $1.2 million compared with $1.0 million for the third quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily due to higher commission expense.
General and administrative expense for the third quarter of 2021 was $1.1 million compared with $1.0 million for the third quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily due to higher stock-compensation expense.
Research and development expense for the third quarter of 2021 was $0.7 million compared with $0.9 million for the prior-year quarter. The decrease was due to lower spending as the Sculptura™ project entered the production phase during 2020.
No other income was reported for the third quarter of 2021 compared with other income of $0.6 million for the third quarter of 2020, which was attributable to a bargain purchase gain recorded as a result of an acquisition.

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2021 was $0.5 million compared with $(1.5) million in the third quarter of 2020.

Revenues for the first nine months of 2021 were $14.0 million compared with $4.5 million for the first nine months of 2020. The 211% increase was primarily driven by the higher number of units sold in 2021, service revenue on installed units and the impact of COVID-19 in the first nine months of 2020.

The increase in gross profit was primarily driven by the higher number of units sold in 2021, service revenue on installed units and the impact of COVID-19 in the first nine months of 2020.
Selling and marketing expense was $3.5 million for the first nine months of 2021 compared with $4.0 million for the first nine months of 2020. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower tradeshow expense due to cancellations related to COVID-19, reduced marketing activities including travel and lower salary and benefit expenses due to reduced headcount, partially offset by an in increase in commission expense.
General and administrative expense was $3.5 million year-to-date, compared with $3.2 million for the prior-year period. The increase was primarily due to higher legal and professional fees, public company expenses and insurance premium costs.
Research and development expense for the first nine months of 2021 was $2.3 million compared with $3.3 million for the first nine months of 2020. The decrease reflected lower spending as the Sculptura project entered production phase during 2020.

Net loss for the first nine months of 2021 was $(1.2) million, or $(0.07) per share, compared with a net loss of $(7.9) million, or $(0.48) per share, for the first nine months of 2020.

This press release contains supplemental financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP). Sensus Healthcare management uses Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, in its analysis of performance. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered a substitute for GAAP basis measures, nor should it be viewed as a substitute for operating results determined in accordance with GAAP. Management believes the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes the impact of interest, income taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock-compensation expense, provides useful supplemental information that is essential to a proper understanding of the financial results of Sensus Healthcare. Non-GAAP financial measures are not formally defined by GAAP, and other entities may use calculation methods that differ from those used by Sensus Healthcare. As a complement to GAAP financial measures, management believes that Adjusted EBITDA assists investors who follow the practice of some investment analysts who adjust GAAP financial measures to exclude items that may obscure underlying performance and distort comparability. A reconciliation of the GAAP net loss to Adjusted EBITDA is provided in the schedule below.
