BOCA RATON, Fla. (August 5, 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 six months ended June 30, 2021.
Highlights from the second quarter of 2021 and recent weeks include the following (all comparisons are with the second quarter of 2020, unless otherwise indicated):
"Our second quarter financial results reflect significant improvement following the impact of COVID-19 on the business during 2020, in particular last year's second quarter, as overall market conditions continued to improve toward pre-pandemic levels," said Joe Sardano, chairman and chief executive officer of Sensus Healthcare. "Our business gained momentum throughout the first half of the year and we are cautiously optimistic about sequential quarterly growth for the rest of 2021. We shipped 17 systems during the second quarter, including seven SRT-100 Vision systems. We sold six SRT-100 Visions to our Corporate Account and 11 SRT Systems directly to customers. New CMS reimbursement schedules for SRT treatments along with new Leasing options provides for a better ROI for our customers as patients continue to request a non-invasive approach to treating their skin cancer.
"Volumes for SRT Systems installed at customer sites have continued to improve since the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services revalued our main procedure and other codes upward effective January 1st of this year. In addition, various medical associations such as the American Academy of Dermatology and the American Society for Radiation Oncology have increased their support for the safety and efficacy of
SRT to treat non-melanoma skin cancer and keloids via conference presentations and papers, and we believe this support is resonating with physicians. The combination of backing by key opinion leaders and our presence at important trade shows such as the Fall Clinical has generated a solid list of leads that we expect to convert to sales during the third quarter and beyond. We look forward to attending the Fall Clinical in Las Vegas in October, which will be held both live and virtually this year.
"We are very pleased with the continued success of our international business," Mr. Sardano added. "Our new distributor for China (Asia) and Hong Kong has developed an extensive network of prospects that are converting to sales, with four more systems shipped to China during the second quarter. To date in 2021 we sold five systems to China, in addition to four sold during the fourth quarter of 2020. We are now expanding our focus to India for further international growth and are hopeful to record our first sale there later this year.
"The integration of our SentinelTM IT Solutions software into our proprietary lasers is complete and these lasers are now available through Sensus Laser Aesthetic Solutions (SLAS), our mobile aesthetic laser division serving dermatologists throughout Florida with plans to expand beyond. SLAS offers multiple lasers with custom rental options. Sentinel provides asset management and HIPAA-compliant patient data and storage capability, and also contains the software necessary to support shared service models including direct patient billing. We have been actively evaluating an expansion to our mobile aesthetic laser business beyond Florida via strategic transactions in geographies where we have an existing SRT customer base.
"Barring any new economic restrictions related to COVID-19 or inflation in the U.S., we are confident we will deliver higher revenues as well as Adjusted EBITDA throughout the balance of the year," Mr. Sardano concluded. We are clearly on track to profitability. The entire Sensus Team is committed to realizing this goal!"
Revenues for the second quarter of 2021 were $5.4 million compared with $1.2 million for the second quarter of 2020. The 358% 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 second quarter of 2020.
Cost of sales for the second quarter of 2021 was $2.1 million compared with $0.5 million for the prior- year quarter. The increase was due to higher sales in the 2021 period.
Gross profit for the second quarter of 2021 was $3.3 million compared with $0.6 million for the second quarter of 2020. Gross margin for the second quarter of 2021 was 61.7% compared with 54.1% for the prior-year quarter. The increase in gross margin 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 second quarter of 2021 was $1.3 million compared with $1.2 million for the second quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily due to higher commission expense offset by a reduction in headcount.
General and administrative expense for the second quarter of 2021 was $1.4 million compared with $0.9 million for the second quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily due to higher legal and professional fees, public company expenses and insurance costs.
Research and development expense for the second quarter of 2021 was $0.9 million compared with $1.1 million for the prior-year quarter. The decrease was due to lower spending as the SculpturaTM project entered the production phase during 2020.
Net loss for the second quarter of 2021 was $(0.3) million, or $(0.02) per share, compared with a net loss of $(2.6) million, or $(0.16) per share, for the second quarter of 2020.
Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2021 was $(0.1) million compared with $(2.3) million in the second quarter of 2020. Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock-compensation expense. Please see below for a reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures, and the specific reasons these non-GAAP financial measures are provided.
Cash and cash equivalents were $15.2 million as of June 30, 2021, compared with $14.9 million as of December 31, 2020. The company had no long-term debt and no outstanding borrowings under its revolving line of credit as of June 30, 2021.
Revenues for the first half of 2021 were $8.5 million compared with $2.9 million for the first half of 2020. The 197% 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 six months of 2020.
Cost of sales was 3.6 million for the first half of 2021, compared to $1.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020. The increase was due to higher sales in the 2021 period.

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 six months ended June 30, 2020.
Selling and marketing expense was $2.3 million for the first half of 2021 compared with $3.0 million for the first half of 2020. The decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease in tradeshows expense due to cancellations related to COVID-19, reduced marketing activities including travel and salary and benefit expenses due to reduced headcount.

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.
