“I am encouraged by our second quarter financial results,” said Frank Amato, Chief Executive Officer. “I believe our successful IPO will not only enable us to expand our commercial presence, but also allows us to build upon our growing list of positive clinical studies.”

Second Quarter Financial Results

Net sales for the three months ended June 30, 2018 increased $217,000 from the second quarter of 2017. The growth in sales was due to an increase in the company’s sales force and the January 29thFDA clearance for an expanded label for gammaCore as an acute treatment for pain associated with migraine in adult patients.           

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2018 was $153,000, up from $138,000 in the same period of the prior year.

Total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2018 were $16.4 million, an increase of $8.8 million compared to the same period in 2017. The increase in operating expenses was driven primarily by costs related to expansion of the company’s sales and additional stock based compensation expense, due to the corporate conversion.

Operating loss in the second quarter of 2018 was $16.2 million, as compared to an operating loss of $7.4 million in the second quarter of 2017.

Cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments were $95.8 million as of June 30, 2018. In June 2018, electroCore completed an initial public offering, raising net proceeds of approximately $77.7 million, net of underwriting discounts, commissions and other offering expenses.
