Feb 23rd, 2023 7:00 EST

WOBURN, Mass., Feb. 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NeuroMetrix, Inc. (Nasdaq: NURO) today reported financial and business highlights for the quarter and full year ended December 31, 2022. The Company's mission is to reduce the impact of neurological disorders and pain syndromes on individuals and on population health through innovative non-invasive medical devices.

Q4 Highlights:

  • Q4 2022 revenue was $1.8 million, an increase of 1.5% from the fourth quarter of 2021. DPNCheck® sales, the Company’s largest revenue contributor, increased by 18.1%. This included growth of 20.6% in the domestic Medicare Advantage market and 8.6% in international sales. Medicare Advantage growth was primarily organic and attributable to established accounts of the Company. Over-the-counter sales of Quell® decreased consistent with the Company's shift to a prescription therapeutics business. The ADVANCE® business also decreased as it is only managed for cash flow.
  • Gross profit in Q4 2022 was $1.2 million, a decrease of 1.0% from the fourth quarter of 2021. The Q4 gross margin rate was 66.6% in comparison with 68.3% in the prior year. Higher raw material costs, particularly electronic components, adversely affected the gross margin rate.
  • Operating expenses of $2.1 million decreased from $2.2 million in Q4 2021. Reduced research and development costs were offset by higher personnel spending in both sales and marketing and in general and administrative.
  • Net loss for the quarter improved to $0.7 million or ($0.09) per share in comparison with a net loss of $1.0 million or ($0.15) per share in the prior year. The Company ended the quarter with cash and securities of $21.2 million.
  • The Company introduced Quell Fibromyalgia at the American College of Rheumatology Annual Meeting in November 2022. This is the first and only medical device authorized by the FDA to help reduce the symptoms of fibromyalgia, a condition affecting about 10 million people in the U.S. A strategic launch was initiated in Q4 2022 with the first prescriptions filled in December.
  • The Company initiated a full market launch of DPNCheck 2.0, its next generation point-of-care peripheral neuropathy test. This new device improves usability thereby facilitating broad market adoption.

"We accomplished two of our key 2022 goals with the fourth quarter launches of Quell Fibromyalgia and DPNCheck 2.0," said Shai N. Gozani, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of NeuroMetrix. "These products address important unmet clinical medical needs. Our focus will now shift to successful commercialization of both products, which we believe will drive the Company's long-term growth. At the same time, we will continue to invest in further technology advances consistent with our position as a leading innovator in the neurology and chronic pain sector."


Q4 2022 revenue of $1.8 million exceeded Q4 2021 by $27 thousand. The gross margin rate of 66.6% in Q4 2022 declined from 68.3% in Q4 2021. Operating expenses of $2.1 million decreased from $2.2 million in Q4 2021 due to lower R&D costs partially offset by increased personnel spending. The Q4 2022 net loss was $0.7 million ($0.09 per share) versus a net loss of $1.0 million ($0.15 per share) in Q4 2021.

For the full year ended December 31, 2022, total revenues of $8.3 million increased by $3 thousand from 2021. Gross margin of $5.8 million or 69.6% compared with $5.9 million or 71.7% in the prior year. Operating expenses were $10.5 million in 2022 versus $8.2 million in the prior year. The increase reflected higher personnel costs, product development spending and infrastructure investment. The 2022 net loss of $4.4 million ($0.62 per share) increased by $2.2 million from the 2021 net loss of $2.3 million ($0.45 per share).
