BIOLASE Announces Preliminary Third Quarter Revenue Results; Reopening Of Dental Practices Drives Sequential Revenue Growth
Virtual Investor and Analyst Event Being Held Today at 1:00 p.m. ET
FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif., Oct. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- BIOLASE, Inc. (NASDAQ: BIOL), the global leader in dental lasers, today announced unaudited preliminary revenue results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020. The Company expects to report third quarter revenue in the range of $6.4 million to $6.6 million, a significant sequential improvement from the 2020 second quarter. Additionally, the Company's U.S. revenue is anticipated to be in-line with its third quarter 2019 U.S. results (pre-COVID-19), as dentists continued to resume normal business practices, while Waterlase sales to new customers accounted for more than 90% of the Company's total U.S. laser revenue during the third quarter of 2020.
"Our positive preliminary third quarter revenue and renewed optimism are due to several factors, including 95% of dentist offices having re-opened in the United States and dental procedure levels at 70% of their pre-Covid-19 levels," commented Todd Norbe, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We want to applaud dentists throughout the country as they are responding to the pandemic with a sense of urgency, implementing the recommended Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and American Dental Association (ADA) guidelines, and ensuring they can care for patients in a safe environment. Investors will get an opportunity to hear from some of these dentists later today, as we are hosting a webinar that highlights the advantages of utilizing Waterlase dentistry in their practices, and at the same time its ability to mitigate the spread of infectious pathogens, such as COVID-19."
