SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tivic Health® Systems, Inc. (“Tivic Health”, Nasdaq: TIVC), a commercial-phase health technology company that develops and commercializes bioelectronic medicine, today announced its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2022.

“I am pleased that our strategy to grow direct-to-consumer sales is driving both our revenue growth and increased gross margins. Increasing sales through direct-to-consumer channels is the first cornerstone in the strategic plan laid out by the company as part of its IPO last November,” commented Jennifer Ernst, Tivic Health’s CEO. “With a growing volume of unit sales and strong customer reviews, we believe we are building confidence among consumers and health care professionals for our bioelectronic platform used in the treatment of sinus pain and congestion.”

  • 33% increase in net revenue
  • 219% increase in gross profit on 28% growth in overall unit sales
  • 77% growth in unit sales through direct-to-consumer channels

First Quarter 2022 Financial Review

Net revenue for the first quarter 2022 was $428 thousand, an increase of $105 thousand (or 33%) compared to $323 thousand in the same period 2021, primarily due to increased unit sales of 28% and termination of less profitable retail distribution arrangements.

Cost of sales for the first quarter 2022 was $358 thousand, an increase of $57 thousand (or 19%) compared to $301 thousand in the same period 2021. The period over period increase was primarily due to the increase in unit sales of 28%.

Gross profit for the first quarter 2022 was $70 thousand, an increase of $48 thousand (or 219%) compared to $22 thousand in the same period 2021. The increase was primarily due to a higher percentage of sales through distribution channels with higher margins, and termination of low-margin “product discovery” contracts entered into in 2020. The increase was partially offset by the effect of the ongoing global supply chain concerns impacting component, materials and shipping costs.

Sales and marketing expenses were $684 thousand for the first quarter 2022, compared to $300 thousand in the same period 2021. The increase of $384 thousand was due primarily to expansion of our sales and marketing efforts, including (i) expanding advertising reach; (ii) growing our social media presence; (iii) upgrading and optimizing e-commerce infrastructure; and (iv) other marketing initiatives.

Research and development expenses were $401 thousand for the first quarter 2022, a $203 thousand increase from $198 thousand for the same period in 2021. The increase was primarily related to activities in the migraine treatment area and initiation of double-blind randomized controlled trial for post-operative pain relief following sinus surgery.

General and administrative expenses were $1.2 million for the first quarter 2022, compared to $581 thousand in the same period 2021. The increase of $645 thousand was primarily attributable to D&O insurance, audit fees, consulting fees and other professional services to upgrade the corporate and finance functions to public company standards.

As of March 31, 2022, the company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $10.8 million compared to approximately $13.0 million on December 31, 2021.
