Insulet Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2012 Results
February 28, 2013 (Insulet Corporation) — Insulet Corporation (NASDAQ: PODD), the leader in tubeless insulin pump technology with its OmniPod Insulin Management System, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2012.
Fourth Quarter Results
Fourth quarter 2012 revenue increased 23% to $57.8 million, compared to $47.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2012 improved by 26% to $25.3 million, as compared to a gross profit of $20.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. The increase in both revenue and gross profit was driven by continued growth of the OmniPod customer base both in the U.S. and international markets during the fourth quarter of 2012.
Operating loss for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $6.1 million, compared to an operating loss of $10.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, an improvement of over 40%. The decrease in the operating loss is mainly driven by the increase in gross profit quarter over quarter.
Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $10.2 million, or $0.21 per share, compared to a net loss of $14.3 million, or $0.30 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2011.
"2012 was an extremely successful year across all fronts for Insulet, with strong revenue growth and expanded gross margins driving us to operating cash profitability* in the fourth quarter," said Duane DeSisto, President and Chief Executive Officer of Insulet. "The year culminated with our most exciting accomplishment, FDA clearance of the new OmniPod. We have begun shipping the new OmniPod to new customers and expect to begin transitioning our existing customer base to the new OmniPod in the coming weeks. Looking ahead to 2013, we expect continued growth to be driven by robust demand for the new OmniPod, which retains all the easy-to-use features of the original OmniPod, and is over a third smaller in size and a quarter lighter."
Full Year Results
For the year ended December 31, 2012, revenue increased 39% to $211.4 million from $152.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. Gross profit for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $92.3 million, an improvement of 38%, as compared to a gross profit of $66.7 million, for the year ended December 31, 2011.
Operating loss for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $36.0 million as compared to an operating loss of $42.5 million in the year ended December 31, 2011. Total operating expenses were $128.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, compared to $109.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. This increase in operating expenses was primarily related to the June 2011 acquisition of Neighborhood Diabetes, the expansion of our commercial team and higher research and development costs associated with the development and approval of our next generation OmniPod.
Net interest expense was $15.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, compared to $14.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. Income tax expense was $0.2 million in the year ended December 31, 2012, compared to income tax benefit of $11.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. Income tax expense in 2012 primarily related to federal, state and foreign taxes. Income tax benefit in 2011 primarily resulted from acquired deferred tax liabilities which were used to offset preexisting deferred tax assets and reduced the amount of the valuation allowance required.
Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $51.9 million, or $1.08 per share, compared to $45.8 million, or $0.98 per share, for the year ended December 31, 2011.
As of December 31, 2012, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $57.3 million compared to $94.0 million at December 31, 2011. In January 2013, the Company sold approximately 4.7 million shares of common stock at $20.75 per share and received net proceeds of approximately $92.8 million.
For the year ending December 31, 2013, the Company estimates that revenue will be in the range of $240 to $255 million. For the first quarter ending March 31, 2013, the Company expects that revenue will be in the range of $56 to $59 million.
