This performance is a reflection of our operational focus and execution and we believe positions us well for the remainder of the year.”

Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results

Total revenue for the three-month period ended June 30, 2018 increased $0.6 million to $19.1 million, or 3% year-over-year on a reported basis and 2% on a constant currency basis. Total revenue in the second quarter of 2018 and 2017 includes royalty revenue of $0.2 million and $0.4 million, respectively, related to patent license agreements.  The decrease in royalty revenue in the second quarter of 2018 compared to the same quarter in the prior year reflects the timing of payments received in the second quarter of 2017.

Product revenue increased $0.9 million to $18.9 million, or 5% year-over-year on a reported basis and 3% on constant currency basis. U.S. product revenue increased $1.1 million to $16.4 million, or 7% year-over-year, and Rest of World product revenue decreased $0.3 million to $2.6 million, or 10% year-over-year on a reported basis and 19% on a constant currency basis.  Product revenue from sales of iTotal PS increased $1.1 million to $6.0 million or 23% year-over-year on a reported basis and 22% on a constant currency basis.  Product revenue from sales of iTotal CR, iDuo and iUni decreased $0.3 million to $12.9 million, or 2% year-over-year on a reported basis and 3% on a constant currency basis.  The decrease in product revenue was primarily in Germany due to reimbursement challenges and the United Kingdom due to the change from direct sales at end customer prices to a distributor at transfer prices.

Total gross profit increased $2.9 million to $9.1 million, or 48% of revenue, in the second quarter of 2018, compared to $6.2 million, or 34% of revenue, in the second quarter of 2017. This 1,400 basis point increase in gross margin year-over-year was driven primarily by cost reductions as a result of vertical integration and manufacturing efficiencies, as well as the $248,000 favorable foreign exchange impact on revenue and an increase in average selling prices.

Total operating expenses increased $0.3 million to $20.5 million, or 2% year-over-year. This increase in expenses was driven primarily by an increase in sales and marketing and research and development, offset by a reduction in general and administrative expense.

Net loss was $14.1 million, or $0.24 per basic share, in the second quarter of 2018, compared to a net loss of $12.1 million, or $0.28 per basic share, for the same period last year. Net loss in the second quarter of 2018 included foreign currency exchange expense of $2.1 million compared to foreign currency exchange income of $2.1 million in the same period last year.  Net loss per basic share calculations assume weighted -average basic shares outstanding of 59.8 million for the second quarter of 2018, compared to 43.2 million for the same period last year.

As of June 30, 2018, cash and cash equivalents and investments totaled $46.6 million, compared to $45.2 million as of December 31, 2017.

In addition to disclosing financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company provides certain information regarding the Company's financial results or projected financial results on a non-GAAP "constant currency basis."

This impact is derived by taking the adjusted current or projected local currency results and translating them into U.S. Dollars based upon the foreign currency exchange rates for the applicable comparable period. It does not include any other effect of changes in foreign currency rates on the Company's results or business. Non-GAAP information is not a substitute for, and is not superior to, information presented on a GAAP basis.
