PLEASANTON, Calif., March 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ProSomnus, Inc. (“the Company”) (NASDAQ: OSA), a pioneer in precision medical devices for the treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2022.

Recent Business Highlights

  • Generated revenues of $5.8 million for the fourth quarter and $19.4 million for the fiscal year 2022, an increase of 32% from the same period in 2021, and 38% year-over-year from 2021
  • Surpassed 200,000 devices prescribed by healthcare providers
  • Commenced execution of multiple growth initiatives, including the expansion of direct sales team in the U.S. and Europe, the commercialization of our next generation sensor device, the relocation to a new manufacturing facility, and the development of marketing and medical affairs programs
  • Announced first patient enrolled in the Severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea (SOS) study
  • Announced full enrollment of patients with moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea in the First Line Obstructive Sleep Apnea Treatment (FLOSAT) study

“2022 was a monumental year for ProSomnus,” said Len Liptak, Chief Executive Officer. “ProSomnus generated record revenues and top decile growth rates, while getting the company publicly listed on the Nasdaq Stock Exchange in a challenging macroeconomic environment. We believe our rapid growth reflects increasing acceptance of our precision intraoral medical devices as a front-line treatment for mild and moderate OSA, and as a safe, effective, non-invasive, and easy-to-use alternative for patients who cannot tolerate CPAP. Listing ProSomnus on Nasdaq enables ProSomnus to access the capital markets necessary to accelerate our growth initiatives and establish ProSomnus devices as the leading option for the treatment and management of OSA.”

Financial Results for the Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year Ended December 31, 2022

Revenue for the three-month period and year ended December 31, 2022 totaled $5.8 million and $19.4 million, respectively, reflecting increases of 32% and 38% compared to $4.4 million and $14.1 million for the same periods during 2021. On a sequential quarter basis, revenue increased 16% compared to $5.0 million for the three-month period ended September 30, 2022. Growth in revenue reflects increased volume in our EVO line of precision intraoral devices, with customer shipments of our EVO Select and EVO PH devices commencing during the fourth quarter of 2022. ProSomnus’s EVO family of devices now accounts for 75% of revenue compared to 56% in the prior year and is accountable for substantially all of the growth reflected.

Gross Margin for the three-month period and year ended December 31, 2022 was 53.6% and 52.9% respectively reflecting modest improvements on a period over period basis from 51.4% and 51.9% for the same periods during 2021.

On a sequential quarter basis, sales and marketing expense increased 4.1% compared to $2.3 million for the three-month period ended September 30, 2022. Increases in the period presented reflect increases in headcount, principally direct sales personnel, increases in commissions paid commensurate with higher sales levels, and increased marketing activity.

On a sequential quarter basis, research and development expense increased 54.8% compared to $0.7 million for the three-month period ended September 30, 2022.
