  • 265% increase in unit sales through our direct-to-consumer channels from Q2 2021.

  • Market studies on a promising new indication for migraines were completed.

Financial Review for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2022

  • For the second quarter of 2022, revenue increased $260 thousand, or 97%, primarily due to a 44% increase in unit sales and the optimization of existing sales channels. Units sold through our direct-to-consumer channels increased 265% compared to the second quarter of 2021.
  • For the second quarter of 2022, cost of sales was $403 thousand compared to $301 thousand for the same period in 2021, an increase of $102 thousand, or 34%. The increase was primarily due to higher sales volume.
  • For the second quarter 2022, research and development expenses were $497 thousand, a $305 thousand increase from $192 thousand for the same period in 2021. This increase was primarily due to increased headcount and increased costs for product research and design.
  • Sales and marketing expenses were $1.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022, compared to $345 thousand for the same period in 2021, representing an increase of $780 thousand. The increase in sales and marketing expenses were due primarily to upgrading and optimizing e-commerce infrastructure, testing new advertising vehicles, expanding our co-operative marketing programs with channel partners and other strategic marketing investments.
  • General and administrative expenses were $1.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022, compared to $485 thousand for the same period in 2021, representing an increase of $1.0 million. The increase was primarily attributable to increased headcount, legal and professional fees, D&O insurance costs and increased fees and professional services that are required for public company standards.
  • These increases resulted in a net loss of $3.0 million for Q2 2022, compared to $1.1 million in Q2 2021.
  • As of June 30, 2022, cash and short-term investments balance was $9.0 million.

Financial Review for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2022

  • For the six months ended June 30, 2022, revenue increased $365 thousand, or 62%, compared to the same period in 2021, primarily due to a 36% increase in unit sales.
  • For the six months ended June 30, 2022, cost of sales was $760 thousand compared to $602 thousand for the same period in 2021, an increase of $158 thousand, or 26%. The increase was primarily driven by higher sales volume in 2022.
  • For the six months ended June 30, 2022, research and development expenses were $898 thousand, a $508 thousand increase from $390 thousand for the same period in 2021. The increase is primarily due to increased headcount and costs related to additional investments in product candidate research and design.
  • Sales and marketing expenses were $1.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared to $645 thousand for the same period in 2021, representing an increase of $1.2 million. The increase for the six-months ended June 30, 2022, was due primarily to the expansion of our sales and marketing efforts.
  • General and administrative expenses were $2.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared to $1.0 million for the same period in 2021, representing an increase of $1.7 million. The increase was primarily attributable to increased headcount, legal and professional fees, D&O insurance costs, increased rent and increased fees and professional services that are required for public company standards.
