Outset Medical Reports Preliminary Third Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Conference Call Scheduled for 4:30 p.m. ET

Outset Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: OM) (“Outset” or the “Company”), today announced preliminary financial results for the third quarter ended Sept. 30, 2023, and provided updated financial guidance for 2023.

Preliminary revenue for the third quarter was $30.4 million, a 9% increase over revenue of $27.8 million in the third quarter of 2022. Outset now expects revenue for 2023 to be approximately $130 million. Preliminary gross margin for the third quarter was 23.6%, or 25.6% on a non-GAAP basis, compared to 16.4% on a non-GAAP basis in the third quarter of 2022. Total cash, including restricted cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments, was $197 million as of Sept. 30, 2023.

“Growth in the quarter was dampened by a larger-than-expected impact in the field from the recent FDA warning letter, and early signs of a more cautious outlook on capital spending that we see as a headwind continuing through the fourth quarter,” said Leslie Trigg, Chair and Chief Executive Officer. “Importantly, we did not see deals fall out of our pipeline and our economic value proposition remains resonant and differentiated. Our confidence around generating sustained long-term growth and reaching profitability remains high.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company may report non‐GAAP results for gross profit/loss, gross margin, operating expenses, operating margins, net income/loss, basic and diluted net income/loss per share, other income/loss, and cash flows. These non-GAAP financial measures are in addition to, and not a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The Company’s financial measures under GAAP include stock-based compensation expense, as listed in the itemized reconciliations between GAAP and non‐GAAP financial measures included in this press release. Management has excluded the effects of this non-cash expense item in non‐GAAP measures to assist investors in analyzing and assessing past and future operating performance and period-to-period comparisons. There are limitations related to the use of non-GAAP financial measures because they are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, may exclude significant expenses required by GAAP to be recognized in the Company’s financial statements, and may not be comparable to non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The Company encourages investors to carefully consider its results under GAAP, as well as its supplemental non‐GAAP information and the reconciliation between these presentations, to more fully understand its business. Reconciliations between GAAP and non‐GAAP results are presented in the Appendix A of this press release.
