    MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IRIDEX Corporation (Nasdaq: IRIX) today reported financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2018.

    Second Quarter Highlights

    • Cyclo G6™ product revenue increased approximately 58% year-over-year
    • Shipped 11,500 G6 probes
    • Shipped 125 G6 laser systems
    • Approval of Cyclo G6 laser system in South Korea
    • Total revenue of $10.3 million

    “I’m pleased with the strong Cyclo G6 momentum we saw in the second quarter.  With a growing body of clinical evidence and support from global key opinion leaders, our priority remains to further drive utilization and expand the installed base worldwide,” said William M. Moore, President and CEO. “The safety, efficacy, and versatility that MicroPulse therapy offers patients is creating traction with doctors as the next generation treatment for glaucoma.  We look forward to continuing to execute on this trajectory.”

    Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results
    Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2018 increased 3% to $10.3 million from $10.0 million during the same period of the prior year. The increase in revenue was primarily due to growth from G6 product revenues, partially offset by a decrease in retina product revenues.

    Gross profit for the second quarter of 2018 was $4.3 million, or 41.4% gross margin, compared to $4.5 million, or 44.9% gross margin, in the same period of the prior year. Gross margin was primarily impacted by unfavorable geographic mix, partially offset by the benefit of higher margin G6 revenues and a decrease in manufacturing overhead spending.

    Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2018 were $7.6 million compared to $7.2 million in the same period of the prior year. This increase is attributable to investments to support the Company’s commercial infrastructure, including increased sales and marketing expenses.

    Loss from operations for the second quarter of 2018 was $3.3 million, compared to loss from operations of $2.7 million for the same period of the prior year.

    Cash and cash equivalents were $16.0 million as of June 30, 2018.

    Guidance for Full Year 2018
    IRIDEX increased its guidance range for G6 probes and G6 systems. The Company now expects G6 probe shipments of 42,000 to 46,000 and G6 system shipments of 370 to 420.  This compares to previous 2018 guidance of G6 probe shipments of 40,000 to 45,000 and G6 system shipments of 350 to 400. The Company also raised the lower end of its 2018 total revenue guidance to a range of $38 million to $41 million. This compares to prior 2018 total revenue guidance of $37 million to $41 million.
