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

Third Quarter 2023 and Subsequent Highlights

  • In November, in response to continued pressure on the company’s revenue caused by the adoption of glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists, ReShape is reorganizing the company and has identified cost reductions, including a Reduction in Force (RIF), totaling approximately $8 million for 2024, alone, which will preserve cash and extend the company runway.
  • In October, completed a public offering, raising $2.8 million in net proceeds. Combined with the cost reductions mentioned above, this will extend the company’s cash runway in 2024.
  • In September, signed an exclusive, royalty-bearing license agreement with Biorad Medysis, Pvt. Ltd. (Biorad) to manufacture, commercialize and distribute the Obalon® Gastric Balloon System in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, and the Maldives. The license agreement provides $200,000 in upfront payments from Biorad to ReShape and ongoing license payments of 4% on gross sales of the Obalon Balloon System in these territories.
  • In September, significantly strengthened the company’s patent portfolio related to its Obalon® Balloon System. Specifically, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) granted one patent (No. 11,737,899) and provided a Notice of Allowance for two additional patents (patent applications 16/993,110 and 17/581,792), providing foundational protection.

“While the growing popularity of GLP-1 prescriptions for weight loss treatment has put pressure on several markets, including bariatrics, we believe that GLP-1 adoption is expanding the medical weight loss market by vastly reducing the stigma that often occurs around obesity and medical intervention. This has helped increase the number of people seeking medical attention for this disease, especially by those who have avoided surgery in the past,” stated Paul F. Hickey, President and Chief Executive Officer of ReShape Lifesciences®. “Given the growing body of evidence pointing to the fact that weight loss due to GLP-1 usage has limitations related to weight loss, co-morbidities, and accessibility, we believe that the market opportunity for the Lap-Band® will increase. From a continuum of care perspective, individuals with obesity are likely potential candidates for bariatric surgery as the next viable anatomy preserving weight loss treatment. To help secure our positioning and considering the sales headwinds from GLP-1 drugs, we have taken bold measures to revamp the organization and achieve cost cuts totaling approximately $8.0 million, representing over 40% reduction in operating expenses for 2024, alone. The changes are bold, necessary, and indicative of our commitment to our first growth pillar, which were established in late 2022. In point of fact, with these 2024 reductions, the company’s core operating expense reductions between 2022 and 2024 are estimated at $22 million, or 70%. These reductions will allow us to invest in our growth drivers and extend our cash runway. To that end, our lead generation program supported by AI marketing automation software is now proving to be cost effective for marketing outreach in markets with our Lap-Band surgeon advocates.”

Mr. Hickey continued, “There is much to look forward to as we move towards 2024 and we remain optimistic about the growth potential for the company. With that in mind, we are working to identify strategic merger and acquisition partnership alternatives to continue to scale ReShape. At the same time, we believe we are well positioned with our current U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Lap-Band® system, which provides a minimally invasive, long-term treatment for obesity and is a safer surgical alternative to more invasive and extreme surgical procedures. Importantly, we filed a Premarket Approval (PMA) supplement application with the FDA in June for the next-generation Lap-Band® 2.0 Flex and expect to receive approval from the FDA by year-end or early in 2024. We believe, based on surgeon feedback, that our Lap-Band 2.0 Flex will be a growth catalyst for the company’s Lap-Band® franchise, once approved. Also of note, in September we signed an exclusive agreement with Biorad to manufacture, commercialize and distribute the Obalon® Gastric Balloon System in the Indian subcontinent. This royalty-bearing agreement represents the first step towards reintroducing our patent protected, non-surgical, minimally invasive, Obalon® System to the global marketplace.”

Third Quarter and Nine months Ended September 30, 2023, Financial and Operating Results

Revenue totaled $2.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023, which represents a decrease of $0.6 million compared to the same period in 2022. Revenue totaled $6.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 a decrease of $1.4 million compared to the same period in 2022. The growing popularity of GLP-1 prescription drugs for weight loss treatment is the primary reason for a decrease in sales volume in the U.S. and internationally. During the nine months ended September 30, 2023, the company focused on its new marketing strategies through targeted and AI supported digital media campaigns near bariatric surgical centers, while reducing costs and increasing efficiencies. The company expects that these efforts will come to fruition during the fourth quarter of 2023 and the beginning of 2024. The company’s continued focus on increasing demand for the Lap-Band® system and the recently launched three new sizes of calibration tubes are expected to positively impact revenues. Additionally, the company anticipates receiving FDA approval for the Lap-Band® 2.0 Flex later this year or early in 2024, followed by a U.S. product launch that should contribute to increased sales going forward.

Gross Profit for the three months ended September 30, 2023, was $1.3 million, compared to $2.1 million for the same period in 2022, a decrease of $0.8 million. Gross profit as a percentage of total revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2023, was 59.8% compared to 75.1% for the same period in 2022. Gross profit for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 was $3.7 million, compared to $5.2 million for the same period in 2022, a decrease of $1.5 million. Gross profit as a percentage of total revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2023, was 55.3% compared to 64.0% for the same period in 2022. The decrease in gross profit percentage is due to the decrease in sales volume, primarily related to GLP-1 drugs coming to market.

Sales and Marketing Expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2023, decreased by $0.8 million to $1.8 million, compared to $2.6 million for the same period in 2022. Sales and marketing expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 decreased by $5.8 million to approximately $6.1 million compared to $11.9 million for the same period in 2022. The decrease of $0.8 million for the three months ended and $5.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2023 is primarily due to a decrease in advertising and marketing expenses of $0.7 million and $4.6 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023, respectively, as the company has reevaluated its marketing approach and has moved to a targeted digital marketing campaign. Additionally there were reductions in payroll expenditures due to changes in sales personnel, lower sales, lower commissions and travel expenses.

General and Administrative Expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2023, decreased by $1.7 million to approximately $2.1 million, compared to $3.8 million for the same period in 2022. General and administrative expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2023, decreased by $4.3 million to approximately $8.7 million, compared to $13.0 million for the same period in 2022. The nine-month decrease is primarily due to the company recording $2.0 million in litigation settlement losses during the three months ended June 30, 2022. The decrease for both three and nine months is primarily due to a reduction in payroll-related expenses, including a reduction in stock-based compensation and personnel changes. There was a reduction in intangible asset amortization costs, as the company impaired the finite intangible assets during the fourth quarter of 2022, and the company also had a decrease in rent and insurance due to ending the lease of its former Carlsbad, CA location.

Research and Development Expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2023, remained consistent with the same period in 2022, with a slight decrease primarily in clinical trials and professional services. Research and development expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2023, decreased by $0.5 million to $1.6 million, compared to $2.1 million for the same period in 2022. The decrease is primarily due to a decrease in payroll expenses.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA loss was $2.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023, compared to a loss of $4.2 million for the same period last year.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBIDTA loss was $12.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2023, compared to a loss of $19.2 million for the same period last year.

Cash and Cash Equivalents as of September 30, 2023, were $1.5 million and the company remains debt free on its balance sheet. With these funds, and the $2.8 million in net proceeds from the October public offering, combined with the cost reductions mentioned above, this will extend the company’s cash runway in 2024.
