NeuroMetrix Reports Q3 2022 Financial Results

WOBURN, Mass., Oct. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NeuroMetrix, Inc. (Nasdaq: NURO) today reported financial and business highlights for the quarter and nine-month period ended September 30, 2022. The Company's mission is to reduce the impact of neurological disorders and pain syndromes on individuals and on population health through innovative non-invasive medical devices.


  • Total Q3 2022 revenue of $2.0 million was 4.7% lower than $2.1 million reported in Q3 2021. DPNCheck® sales, the Company’s largest revenue contributor, declined by 6% primarily due to a drop in international sales. DPNCheck Medicare Advantage sales were flat as an increase in new accounts was offset by decreased orders from the Company’s largest customer.

  • Q3 2022 gross profit of $1.3 million versus $1.4 million in Q3 2021 reflected a margin rate of 64.8% versus 70.0% in the prior year. The rate decrease was due to broker payments above standard costs to secure critical parts for current and future production. Excluding this variance, the Q3 2022 margin rate was 73.6%.

  • Operating expenses of $3.0 million increased from $2.1 million in Q3 2021. Higher spending primarily reflected product development efforts for DPNCheck and Quell® Fibromyalgia and investments in commercial resources for both product lines.

  • Net loss for the quarter was $1.6 million or ($0.23) per share and the Company ended the quarter with cash and securities of $20.8 million.

  • Preparation continued for a Q4 2022 limited launch of Quell Fibromyalgia. This device is the first and only U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized medical device that helps reduce the symptoms of fibromyalgia, a condition affecting about 10 million U.S. adults. An agreement was signed with a nationally accredited online pharmacy to process Quell Fibromyalgia prescriptions.

"Although revenue was slightly down this quarter compared to the same quarter last year, we believe that our R&D, commercial and infrastructure investments are positioning the Company for future growth," said Shai N. Gozani, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of NeuroMetrix. "Our DPNCheck pipeline continues to expand and should start to contribute meaningful sales in 2023. We are also gearing up for a fourth quarter limited launch of Quell Fibromyalgia to physicians managing patients with fibromyalgia. This launch represents the culmination of our transition of the Quell wearable neuromodulation technology from the crowded and low margin over-the-counter market for pain treatments to the more attractive prescription neurotherapeutics space."


Q3 2022 revenue of $2.0 million decreased by $96 thousand or 4.7% from the prior year. Gross margin of $1.3 million contracted by $170 thousand or 11.8% from Q3 2021. Operating expenses of $3.0 million increased by $855 thousand from $2.1 million in Q3 2021. R&D spending of $1.1 million included $337 thousand in outside engineering consulting services. Sales and marketing costs of $810 thousand included $247 thousand in new personnel spending. The net loss for Q3 2022 was $1.6 million or ($0.23) per share in comparison with a net loss of $687 thousand or ($0.12) per share in Q3 2021.

Revenue in the nine-month period ended September 30, 2022 of $6.4 million was flat with the comparable 2021 period. Gross profit of $4.5 million was lower by $159 thousand or 3.4% versus the prior year period. Operating expenses increased by $2.4 million from the prior year period. Net loss in the 2022 nine months period was $3.7 million or ($0.53) per share versus a net loss of $1.3 million or ($0.28) per share in 2021.
