Annual Operating Expenses Declined 27% Due to Success of Cost Cutting Initiatives

Management to Host Conference Call Today at 5:00 pm ET

LITTLETON, Colo., March 28, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Vivos Therapeutics, Inc. (“Vivos” or the “Company’’) (NASDAQ: VVOS), a leading medical device and technology company specializing in the development and commercialization of highly effective proprietary treatments for sleep related breathing disorders (including all severities of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA in adults)), today reported financial results and operating highlights for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2023.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2023 Financial and Operating Summary

  • Revenue was $3.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2023 and $13.8 million for the full year ended December 31, 2023, compared to $4.0 million and $16.0 million for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2022, respectively, mainly due to lower appliance revenue and Vivos Integrated Provider (VIP) enrollments, offset by increased revenue from home sleep testing services and seminars conducted at the Vivos Institute in Denver. Importantly, Vivos believes that governmental investigations of unrelated third parties with non-FDA approved products in the sleep apnea treatment space adversely impacted new Vivos case starts and VIP enrollments during 2023.
  • Gross profit was $2.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2023 and $8.3 million for the full year ended December 31, 2023, compared to $2.4 million and $10.0 million for the comparable periods in 2022, respectively, attributable primarily to the decrease in revenue;
  • Gross margin was 64% and 60% for the fourth quarters of 2023 and 2022, respectively. For the full year ended December 31, 2023, gross margin was 60%, compared 63% for the full year ended December 31, 2022;
  • Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2023 decreased by a significant amount ($2.2 million, or 26%) versus the fourth quarter of 2022, reflecting Vivos’ previously announced cost-cutting initiatives including personnel and related expenses. For the full year ended December 31, 2023 operating expenses decreased by $9.5 million or 27%, compared to the full year 2022;
  • Vivos’ cost-cutting initiatives also led to significant year-over-year reductions of net loss of $1.8 million, or a 30% reduction, and $10.3 million, or a 43% reduction, for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2023, respectively, compared to the same periods in 2022. Vivos plans to utilize its cost reductions to help achieve cash flow positive operations by the end of 2024 should revenue increase as planned;
  • Cash and cash equivalents were $1.6 million at December 31, 2023. Subsequent to year end, in February 2024, an outstanding common stock purchase warrant held by an institutional investor to purchase an aggregate of 980,393 shares of Vivos common stock was exercised for gross proceeds of approximately $4.0 million;
  • As of December 31, 2023, patients treated with Vivos’ patented oral appliances totaled over 42,000 worldwide, compared to over 33,000 as of the end of 2022. Vivos has also trained more than 1,900 dentists in the use of The Vivos Method and Vivos’ related value-added services, compared to over 1,700 as of the end of 2022;
  • In October 2023, Vivos announced two key strategic agreements with Ormco, a division of publicly-traded Envista Holdings Corporation, and On Demand Orthodontist (ODO), offering Vivos’ national network of providers access to Spark™ Clear Aligners. The agreements will expand Vivos’ current product line and are expected to create near term additional revenue opportunities;
  • Also in October, Vivos announced an exclusive distribution agreement with NOUM DMCC (“Noum”), a Dubai-based company focused on diagnostic testing and treatment product distribution for healthcare providers and hospital networks treating obstructive sleep apnea patients throughout the Middle East-North Africa (MENA) region. Subject to regulatory approvals, Vivos could see revenue from this collaboration in 2024;
  • Later in October, Vivos announced that its flagship daytime-nighttime appliance (DNA) will be tested in a clinical trial at Stanford Medicine. The protocol has been finalized and participant enrollment will begin in 2024. Study participants with moderate to severe OSA will be randomly assigned to either treatment with Vivos’ DNA appliance or CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine, the current industry standard for OSA treatment. Sleep studies will be performed prior to and following a course of treatment using in-lab polysomnography to assess changes in the patients’ apnea-hypopnea index (AHI);
  • On October 27, 2023, Vivos effected a 1-for-25 reverse stock split of its issued and outstanding common stock. The reverse stock split was approved at Vivos’ 2023 Annual Meeting of Stockholders on September 22, 2023;
  • In November 2023, Vivos amended its national distribution agreement with Lincare, a leading supplier of in-home respiratory therapy products and services for approximately 1.8 million patients, giving Lincare a six-month exclusivity period to distribute certain designated Vivos devices. The agreement follows the successful conclusion of a distribution pilot with Lincare, and marks an important milestone in Vivos’ strategy to engage with leading durable medical equipment (DME) companies in the United States; and
  • Later in November, Vivos was granted 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treating severe OSA in adults using the Vivos’ removable CARE (Complete Airway Repositioning and/or Expansion) oral appliances. Vivos’ CARE appliances include the flagship DNA oral appliance, the mRNA oral appliance and the mmRNA oral appliance. This represents the first time the FDA has ever granted an oral appliance a clearance to treat moderate and severe OSA in adults, 18 years of age and older along with positive airway pressure (PAP) and/or myofunctional therapy, as needed.

Kirk Huntsman, Vivos’ Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “In 2023, we took a number of steps to expand our portfolio of proprietary products, open up new revenue streams, lower our cost structure and strengthen our liquidity position. We also worked tirelessly to expand our FDA approvals to put ourselves in a better position for long-term revenue growth. We have made substantial progress and are now starting to see the benefits of our actions. In 2023, our operating expenses declined by 27% annually. That is no small feat and it speaks to the tremendous efforts of our entire team. Also, these are not one-time cost reductions. Our results represent ongoing cost efficiencies we have achieved throughout our entire organization. Based on our progress to date and our revenue growth efforts for 2024, we continue to anticipate becoming cash flow positive from operations by the end of this year.”

“We also took actions to strengthen our capital structure and improve our liquidity. Last year, we effected a 1-for-25 reverse stock split to come back into compliance with Nasdaq’s minimum bid requirement. More recently, we completed a $4 million private placement in November and in February we completed a warrant exercise transaction that generated about $4 million in gross proceeds. While we expect to look to raise additional capital in 2024, we believe these actions will go a long way toward providing us with the necessary capital resources to enact our near and longer-term growth plans.

“In addition, throughout 2023 we established a number of key relationships to expand our product line and extend our international presence into the Middle East/North Africa (MENA) region. We have also begun to actively cultivate relationships and collaborations with medical doctors to assist in treating their OSA patients by local Vivos-trained dentists. We expect that over time, these relationships will drive higher patient referrals and create long-term revenue opportunities for us.

“Perhaps most important, in November, we received FDA 510(k) clearance for our CARE oral medical devices to treat severe OSA. Since then, we’ve received high levels of inquiries related to our Vivos CARE products that treat OSA in adults. As a result, signed VIP enrollment contracts in the fourth quarter increased 38% sequentially. We are thrilled by this recent business momentum and expect these higher inquiries and expanded sales pipeline could create opportunities for revenue growth in 2024.

“As we move through the new year, macroeconomic trends exiting 2023 and in early 2024 give us optimism that the larger environment is improving. At the same time, we are seeing increased interest from dentists and medical professionals related to our growing portfolio of products, driven by our new FDA clearance for severe OSA. The FDA clearance to treat severe OSA has provided the credibility we have needed for medical doctors to recommend Vivos oral medical devices to their patients. Given all this, the key relationships we’ve established, our success in managing costs and reducing our cash burn, our increased liquidity and enhanced capital structure, we are extremely excited about our prospects for this year. We believe we have all the necessary tools in place to implement our growth plans, drive increased revenues and achieve cash flow positive operations and profitability in the foreseeable future, and we remain committed to doing so,” Mr. Huntsman concluded.
