PLEASANTON, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/14 -- ZELTIQ® (NASDAQ: ZLTQ)
- Total revenue of $31.0 million, up 55% compared to $20.0 million in Q1 2013
- 179 systems shipped, compared to 112 systems in Q1 2013, bringing total system installed base to 2,354 systems
- 142,317 cycles shipped, up 83% from Q1 2013
ZELTIQ®, (NASDAQ: ZLTQ) a medical technology company focused on developing and commercializing products utilizing its proprietary controlled-cooling technology platform, today announced financial results for the first quarter 2014.
Mark Foley, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "After a transformative 2013, our organization continued to execute and maintain the momentum generated last year by further building on key strategic initiatives which we believe will drive our long term success. We further differentiated our innovative technology, partnered with physician practices to drive utilization, leveraged our platform to treat more areas of the body, and achieved deeper penetration of the large and growing non-invasive body contouring market. We saw strong year-over-year increases in our consumable utilization rate which we believe is a direct result of the various initiatives and programs beginning to gain traction through our Practice Development Managers, and our Area Sales Managers drove another strong quarter of system placements while still increasing the already robust pipeline of system leads in our queue. Our strong progress on many of our key initiatives and execution by our sales force led to outstanding 55% year-over-year revenue growth in the first quarter and the further strengthening of CoolSculpting's established market leadership position."
Mr. Foley continued, "We also achieved two major milestones that we believe are significant to our long term growth strategy. In March, we launched our revolutionary non-suction based, surface applicator, CoolSmooth, designed to treat expanded areas of the body without the need to draw tissue away from the body. CoolSmooth saw strong pre-order demand during the quarter and we began shipping the product in early April. It is a platform on which we intend to further build, leveraging our unique technology. In April, we received FDA clearance across our entire applicator portfolio for the treatment of thighs. These two developments further strengthen our ability to drive deeper market penetration, and we expect a corresponding increase in demand for system sales over the course of 2014. Accordingly, we made significant investments in the first quarter in both sales and marketing and in inventory for both CoolSculpting systems and CoolSmooth applicators. We have included in today's release as well as on our website some additional key metrics which we believe will provide greater transparency in the health and future growth of our business. We remain excited about the potential in 2014 and our confidence has led us to increase our full year 2014 revenue guidance to $137 million to $140 million."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
ZELTIQ has supplemented its GAAP net loss with a non-GAAP measure of Adjusted EBITDA. Management believes that this non-GAAP financial measure provides useful supplemental information to management and investors regarding the performance of ZELTIQ, facilitates a more meaningful comparison of results for current periods with previous operating results, and assists management in analyzing future trends, making strategic and business decisions and establishing internal budgets and forecasts. A reconciliation of non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA to GAAP net loss in the most directly comparable GAAP measure is provided in the schedule below.
There are limitations in using this non-GAAP financial measure because it is not prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. This non-GAAP financial measure should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financial measures. Investors and potential investors should consider non-GAAP financial measures only in conjunction with the ZELTIQ's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP and the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measure provided in the schedule below.
ZELTIQ will hold a conference call on Tuesday, April 29, 2014 at 4:30 p.m. ET to discuss the results. The dial-in numbers are (877) 280-7291 for domestic callers and (707) 287-9361 for international callers.

About ZELTIQ® Aesthetics
ZELTIQ is a medical technology company focused on developing and commercializing products utilizing its proprietary controlled-cooling technology platform. ZELTIQ's first commercial product, the CoolSculpting System, is designed to selectively reduce stubborn fat bulges. CoolSculpting is based on the scientific principle that fat cells are more sensitive to cold than the overlying skin and surrounding tissues. It utilizes patented technology of precisely controlled cooling to reduce the temperature of fat cells in the treated area, which is intended to cause fat cell elimination through a natural biological process known as apoptosis. ZELTIQ developed CoolSculpting to safely, noticeably, and measurably reduce the fat layer.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
