ZELTIQ Announces First Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Increases Full Year 2014 Revenue Guidance

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."

Additional information regarding our results and guidance can be found in our Supplemental Financial and Operational Information schedule by CLICKING HERE or by visiting the Investor Relations section of our website at www.zeltiq.com.

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.

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.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
@GonzalezCarmen has been ranked the Number One Influencer and @ThingsExpo has been named the Number One Brand in the “M2M 2016: Top 100 Influencers and Brands” by Onalytica.

IoT is rapidly changing the way enterprises are using data to improve business decision-making. In order to derive business value, organizations must unlock insights from the data gathered and then act on these. In their session at @ThingsExpo, Eric Hoffman, Vice President at EastBanc Technologies, and Peter Shashkin, Head of Development Department at EastBanc Technologies, discussed how one organization leveraged IoT, cloud technology and data analysis to improve customer experiences and effici...
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 @...

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
As data explodes in quantity, importance and from new sources, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and cloud environments grow with it. Managing data includes protecting it, indexing and classifying it for true, long-term management, compliance and E-Discovery. Commvault can ensure this with a single pane of glass solution – whether in a private cloud, a Service Provider delivered public cloud or a hybrid cloud environment – across the heterogeneous enter...
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
Regulatory requirements exist to promote the controlled sharing of information, while protecting the privacy and/or security of the information. Regulations for each type of information have their own set of rules, policies, and guidelines. Cloud Service Providers (CSP) are faced with increasing demand for services at decreasing prices. Demonstrating and maintaining compliance with regulations is a nontrivial task and doing so against numerous sets of regulatory requirements can be daunting task...
Successful digital transformation requires new organizational competencies and capabilities. Research tells us that the biggest impediment to successful transformation is human; consequently, the biggest enabler is a properly skilled and empowered workforce. In the digital age, new individual and collective competencies are required. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bob Newhouse, CEO and founder of Agilitiv, drew together recent research and lessons learned from emerging and established compa...
