Allurion Reports First Quarter 2024 Financial Results and Provides Business Update

Allurion Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: ALUR) (“Allurion” or the “Company”), a company dedicated to ending obesity, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024, and provided a business update.

Recent Company Highlights

  • First quarter revenue of $9.4 million, an increase of 14% from the fourth quarter of 2023 and in line with preannouncement on April 30
  • Procedural volume, as estimated through new app users, increased 12% year-over-year from the first quarter of 2023 and 22% sequentially from the fourth quarter of 2023; in line with preannouncement on April 30
  • Cash burn of $8.4 million, down from $22 million in the fourth quarter of 2023; in line with targeted cash burn of approximately $30 million for the year and preannouncement on April 30
  • Treated the first patient through the U.K. National Health Service (NHS) with the Allurion Balloon for pre-surgical weight loss
  • Launched the Virtual Care Suite (VCS) digital platform in the United States, a technology platform that includes remote patient monitoring, predictive analytics, telehealth, and an AI-powered weight loss coach
  • Announced the publication of a randomized, double-blind study the results of which demonstrated significant reductions in serious comorbidities, including type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and obstructive sleep apnea in just four months on the Allurion Program
  • Closed $48 million convertible senior secured note financing with RTW Investments, LP in April, expected to simplify the company’s capital structure and improve operating flexibility

“Our strong performance in the first quarter was driven by continued growth in procedural volume, leading to our highest volume in any quarter to date,” said Dr. Shantanu Gaur, Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “We believe this increase in procedural volume reflects the strong demand for the Allurion Program and demonstrates how we are poised to capitalize on the attention being paid to the obesity management space. In parallel, we improved our execution and increased efficiency across our operations, leading to a reduction in our quarterly cash burn and operating expenses by 62% and 43%, respectively, compared to the fourth quarter of 2023.”

Gaur continued, “We believe the differentiated approach of the Allurion Program – with our procedureless balloon complemented by the VCS powered by Coach Iris – positions us well to not only compete against, but also be complimentary to, other players in the space. With the launch of the VCS in the United States, we are looking forward to building strong partnerships with U.S. providers in advance of receiving AUDACITY trial data, which we expect at the end of this year.”

First Quarter Financial Results

Total revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2024 was $9.4 million compared to $14.1 million for the same period in 2023 and $8.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2023. The year-over-year decrease in revenue reflected, among other things, macroeconomic headwinds in certain markets leading to lower re-order rates during the period as distributors and accounts in certain markets adjusted their inventory levels, and we reduced or paused sales to certain accounts to manage credit risk.

Gross profit as a percent of sales was 73% for the first quarter, compared to 79% for the same period in 2023. The decrease in gross profit as a percent of sales was driven largely by temporarily lower production volumes, which resulted in less manufacturing and overhead expense being absorbed into inventory costs.

Sales and marketing expenses for the first quarter decreased approximately $5.7 million to $6.2 million, compared to $11.9 million for the same period in 2023, driven largely by strategic reductions in spending to reduce cash burn and improve operational flexibility.

Research and development expenses for the first quarter decreased approximately $2.1 million to $5.7 million, compared to $7.9 million for the same period in 2023, driven primarily by reduced costs related to the AUDACITY trial.

General and administrative expenses for the first quarter increased approximately $1.1 million to $6.4 million, compared to $5.3 million in the first quarter of 2023 as we incurred more costs related to being a public company.

Loss from operations for the first quarter was $11.4 million compared to $13.9 million in the same period in 2023. The decrease in loss from operations was driven by decreased operating expenses of $6.8 million, partially offset by $4.3 million less gross profit.

As of March 31, 2024, cash and cash equivalents totaled $29.7 million.

2024 Financial Outlook

For full year 2024, Allurion reiterates the financial guidance it previously published:

  • Procedural volume growth of 20%, reflecting increased penetration in key direct markets and reallocation of marketing spend to more efficient channels
  • Revenue of $60 to $65 million, reflecting 13-23% growth year-over-year
  • Gross margins of 77-79%, reflecting durable pricing of our gastric balloon as well as initial commercialization efforts for the Allurion Virtual Care Suite SaaS product
  • Cash burn of approximately $30 million for the full year
