Vivos Expanding its Revenue Generating Initiatives
As Operating Expenses Decrease 22%, Representing Seven Consecutive Quarters of
Year Over Year Improvement Due to Successful Cost Cutting Initiatives

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

LITTLETON, Colo., May 14, 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 first quarter ended March 31, 2024.

First Quarter 2024 Financial and Operating Summary


Revenue was $3.4 million for the first quarter of 2024, compared to $3.8 million for the first quarter of 2023, mainly due to lower Vivos Integrated Provider (VIP) enrollments and CARE appliance revenue, offset by increased revenue from sales of Vivos’ Pediatric and Lifeline appliances and home sleep testing services to VIPs. Vivos believes that the contribution of Pediatric and Lifeline appliances to revenues is a validation of Vivos’ strategy to add additional products across the price spectrum to its portfolio to diversify revenue opportunities beyond VIP enrollments. Revenue in the first quarter of 2024 was also impacted by lower tier dentist enrollment offerings and updates to key inputs in Vivos’ revenue recognition methodology, primarily estimated customer lives.
Gross profit was $1.9 million for the first quarter of 2024, compared to $2.3 million for the comparable period in 2023, attributable primarily to the decrease in revenue and partially offset by a decrease in cost of sales;
Gross margin was 57% for the first quarter of 2024, compared 61% for the first quarter of 2023;
Operating expenses for the first quarter of 2024 decreased by a significant amount ($1.6 million, or 22%) versus the first quarter of 2023, reflecting Vivos’ previously announced cost-cutting initiatives including personnel and related expenses,
Vivos’ cost-cutting initiatives also led to a significant year-over-year reduction in operating loss ($1.2 million or 24%), versus the first quarter of 2023. Vivos continues to anticipate attaining positive cash flow operations by the end of 2024 should revenue increase as planned;
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;
Cash and cash equivalents were $2.6 million at March 31, 2024;
As of March 31, 2024, patients treated with Vivos’ patented oral appliances totaled over 42,600 worldwide, compared to over 35,000 as of the first quarter of 2023. Vivos has also trained more than 1,950 dentists in the use of The Vivos Method and Vivos’ related value-added services, compared to over 1,750 as of the first quarter 2023; and
In April 2024, Vivos received all required regulatory approvals to enable Medicare reimbursement for its CARE oral devices. This milestone achievement allows millions of Medicare beneficiaries coverage and reimbursement for allowable charges billable to Medicare. The Vivos Method is estimated to be indicated and potentially effective (within the scope of the FDA cleared uses) in approximately 80% of cases of OSA where patients are compliant with clinical treatments.

Kirk Huntsman, Vivos’ Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are proud of the prudent way we have managed our costs and our cash resources as well as our successful efforts to expand our product offerings, gain unprecedented regulatory approvals and obtain Medicare reimbursement for our CARE oral devices. That said, we recognize that our revenues have not grown as we would have liked. To that end, we are announcing today the anticipated launch of a new strategic revenue initiative based on collaborations to better align our interests with referring medical professionals, which we expect to materially broaden the number of OSA patients who have access to our products, make our revenue less reliant of VIP enrollments, and build on the initiatives we’ve been implementing over the past year. We look forward to providing some additional details on our investor call today and in the coming weeks. All of these initiatives are intended to increase our ability to take advantage of what we see as steadily improving market conditions in OSA and open Vivos up for greater revenue opportunities. By doing this, we expect to position Vivos for long-term, sustainable revenue growth and ultimate profitability.”

“Some of the progress we’ve already made on the expense side is evident in our first quarter financial results. During the first quarter, we once again reduced our operating expenses by a substantial amount, over 22% compared to the prior year’s first quarter. This marks our seventh consecutive quarter where we have reported lower operating expenses on a year over year basis. Based on our progress to date, and with the assumption that our revenue generating initiatives perform as we plan, we continue to anticipate becoming cash flow positive from operations by the end of 2024 or during the first quarter of 2025.”

“During the first quarter, we also continued to broaden our regulatory approvals for Vivos’ products and services. In April, our company achieved a significant milestone when we were granted all required regulatory approvals to enable Medicare reimbursement for Vivos’ CARE oral medical devices. Now, patients across the nation will have coverage and reimbursement for allowable charges billable to Medicare. This means Vivos’ CARE oral medical devices can now be utilized by millions of Medicare beneficiaries as an integral part of treatment regiments for moderate to severe OSA. I cannot understate the importance of this recent development, which we believe has the potential to drive increased patient count and utilization of our Vivos devices and methods.”

“Taking into consideration these favorable developments and our progress in improving internal efficiencies, we are positive about our prospects for the rest of this year and into 2025. Since the end of 2023, we have seen positive market developments, including the announcement by Phillips Respironics they were suspending CPAP shipments into the U.S., which has contributed to an increasing number of patients seeing CPAP alternatives, including oral appliance therapy. Additionally, United Healthcare announced a new policy that now mandates oral appliance therapy prior to approval of neurostimulation implant surgery for adult patients with OSA. We expect these shifts in patient needs will spur greater demand for our products and services. With our full line of OSA treatment options across a range of price points, increased regulatory approvals and the success of our cost cutting measures, we are well placed to meet this anticipated demand and deliver on the considerable promise our technology holds. Doing this, we expect to drive revenue growth as we continue on the path to becoming cash flow positive from operations,” Mr. Huntsman concluded.
