Management Commentary

“Our consumer business had a difficult first quarter including declines in direct, retail, home shopping and distributor channel sales. This reflects challenges with marketing efficiencies, media availability and the continued transition towards online advertising, each of which we are working to address,” said Dr. Dolev Rafaeli, PhotoMedex CEO. “Importantly, there have been several encouraging developments for PhotoMedex in recent weeks. We are delighted to be preparing to bring the no!no!TM line of hair removal products back to the Japanese market, following the signing of an agreement with Synergy Trading Corporation last month. Synergy has placed its initial order, and we will be shipping product to them in the coming weeks. We are working closely with Synergy to ensure a successful launch in what historically has been an important market for the brand. In addition, our XTRAC recurring physician business continues to grow, posting a 22% year-over-year increase in revenue during the quarter. We added a net 20 XTRAC systems to our installed base, which now stands at 640 units.”

He added, “Our first quarter financial results are within the requirements of our revised forbearance agreement, and we continue to work with our lenders to pursue a satisfactory resolution.”

Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement PhotoMedex’s consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, PhotoMedex provides certain non-GAAP measures of financial performance. These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP adjusted income and non-GAAP adjusted income per share.
