ReShape Lifesciences Inc. (Nasdaq: RSLS), the premier physician-led weight loss and metabolic health-solutions company, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2023 and provided a corporate strategic update.

Second Quarter 2023 and Subsequent Highlights

  • In July, in response to the Company’s revenue shortfall caused by GLP-1 adoption and other market factors, ReShape made additional operational improvements to further invest in growth drivers and reduce expenses, with annualized savings estimated at more than $4 million.
  • In June, the Company held its first Scientific Advisory Board meeting at which feedback affirmed market trends and the Company’s three growth pillars were discussed, including validation of the Lap-Band 2.0 design rationale and clinical publication strategies.
  • In June, signed a preferred partner agreement with Hive Medical (Hive) for lead optimization software to improve patient engagement strategy, utilizing AI, machine-learning, SMS, and patient self-service technology to increase patient volume and, potentially, Lap-Band® surgeries.
  • In June, presented preclinical data on its proprietary Diabetes Bloc-Stim Neuromodulation™ (DBSN™) device, which selectively modulates vagal block and stimulation to the liver and pancreas to manage blood glucose, in an e-poster at the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) 2023 Annual Meeting.
  • In June, submitted a Premarket Approval (PMA) supplement application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the company’s next generation Lap-Band® 2.0, with an enhanced band reservoir technology that serves as a relief valve, designed to alleviate discomfort from swallowing large pieces of food, which may require in-office band adjustments.
  • In April, completed a $2.5 million registered direct offering with a single institutional investor, extending the company's cash runway into 2024, creating a sustainable path to profitability.
  • In April, received a Notice of Allowance from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for patent application 16/792,094, entitled, “Systems and Methods for Determining Failure of Intragastric Devices,” related to the company’s Obalon® Balloon System. The patent is expected to provide protection into at least January 2031, excluding any potential Patent Term Extension (PTE).

“Despite short-term headwinds as a result of the adoption of GLP-1 prescription therapy as a presurgical treatment option, we remain confident that this trend is expanding the medical weight loss market by promoting open discussions between physicians and the vast majority of those suffering from obesity, who have traditionally avoided surgery,” stated Paul F. Hickey, President and Chief Executive Officer of ReShape Lifesciences®. “The popularity of GLP-1’s has brought significant benefits to those suffering from type 2 diabetes and their use for weight loss has helped to normalize the stigma that often occurs around obesity and medical intervention. Excitingly, there is growing discussion regarding the application of GLP-1 therapy for patients who have plateaued with their weight loss following bariatric surgery, including Lap-Band® surgery patients. That said, as a standalone therapy, there is growing evidence that weight loss due to these pharmacological therapies levels off and can often lead to notable non-compliance due to their currently known side effects. From a continuum of care perspective, these patients are likely candidates for bariatric surgery as the next viable treatment.

Mr. Hickey continued, “During the second quarter, we took significant, tangible steps to further invest in our growth drivers by optimizing operational efficiencies and streamlining and enhancing our lead generation programs. As a direct result, we recognized a 53% reduction in operating expenses compared to last year’s second quarter and expect to see continued financial benefits throughout the rest of this year and into 2024. We are fully committed to attaining profitability by executing on our three growth pillars and are focused on being a disciplined and metrics driven organization, driving revenue by developing and expanding our pipeline, and validating our evidenced based products across the weight loss care continuum.

“To that end, in June, we submitted a PMA supplement application to the FDA for our next generation, Lap-Band® 2.0, developed with physician feedback to improve the patient experience using an enhanced band reservoir technology that serves as a relief valve and is designed to allow for increased Lap-Band® constriction and resultant satiety, without increasing discomfort due to swallowing large pieces of food that may require in-office band adjustments. We expect FDA feedback by year end or early 2024, at the latest. If approved, we believe that, based on discussions with physicians, there should be broad adoption by existing and new Lap-Band® surgeons.

“Also key is our recently signed agreement with Hive, which is expected to significantly improve our patient engagement strategy. Importantly, data generated during our testing of the Hive AI SMS platform in the first quarter, at select Lap-Band® accounts where we also have co-op marketing, revealed a more than 107% increase in medical consultations scheduled over the prior quarter. In conjunction with our highly targeted, direct-to-consumer marketing campaign, the Hive platform allows individuals to quickly and easily navigate new patient intake hurdles and book an appointment with a medical professional at any time. Taken together, we believe this strategy will better address patient leads, with the intent of increasing conversions and, ultimately, more Lap-Band® surgeries.”

Mr. Hickey concluded, “We believe our personalized, HIPAA-compliant, weight management program, ReShapeCare™, with resources including personalized health coaching, could be a meaningful adjunct for GLP-1 patients, helping them to make the necessary lifestyle changes to attain long-term weight loss. As the limitations of the use of GLP-1s become more evident, we are confident that our minimally invasive, adjustable Lap-Band® system, which remains broadly reimbursed, will continue to gain further acceptance as a long-term and safe weight loss solution. Going forward, we remain committed to continuing our collaborations with healthcare professionals to expand awareness and use of personalized treatments, including both our proprietary Lap-Band® and ReShapeCare™ programs, to ensure that patients can achieve durable long-term weight loss goals.”

Research and Development Expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2023, decreased by $0.2 million, or 22.2%, to $0.6 million, compared to approximately $0.8 million for the same period in 2022.
