Preliminary, Unaudited Full-Year 2023 Revenue Results

Nevro's preliminary, unaudited full-year 2023 worldwide revenue is expected to be approximately $425.0 million, an increase of 5% as reported, or an increase of 4.5% on a constant currency basis, compared with $406.4 million for full-year 2022. Worldwide revenue for 2023 includes approximately $77.9 million of revenue for PDN, compared with $48.0 million for full-year 2022. Preliminary, unaudited full-year 2023 U.S. revenue is expected to be approximately $366.5 million, reflecting growth of 5% over $348.2 million in 2022. Preliminary, unaudited full-year 2023 international revenue is expected to be approximately $58.5 million, an increase of 0.5% as reported, or flat on a constant currency basis, compared with $58.2 million in 2022.

"We are pleased with our preliminary fourth-quarter 2023 revenue which exceeded our expectations and demonstrates that our commercial realignment and execution are delivering stronger and more consistent growth," said Kevin Thornal, Nevro's CEO. "Also, we are excited to enter the fast-growing sacroiliac joint space through our recent acquisition of Vyrsa Technologies, which allows us to leverage one of our greatest assets – our commercial team. As we look ahead, we remain focused on delivering on our three key pillars of commercial execution, market penetration and profit progress."

Nevro expects to report its complete fourth-quarter and full-year 2023 financial results and provide 2024 financial guidance in February 2024.

Restructuring

The company also announced a restructuring, including laying off 63 employees, or 5% of its total number of employees, that will be substantially complete by the end of the first quarter of 2024. The layoffs affect employees in corporate, sales and marketing, and operations positions but are largely focused on internally facing roles within the organization.

"This restructuring supports our strategy and allows us to focus our investments to further position Nevro for long-term growth and profitability. This was a difficult decision that impacts some of our team members who have been committed to our mission. We appreciate their dedication and contributions to Nevro," Thornal said. "As we look ahead, we remain focused on bringing innovative products to market, working closely with physicians treating patients living with chronic pain and creating value for all our stakeholders."

Nevro expects the restructuring to have a $14 million to $15 million positive impact on its full-year 2024 adjusted EBITDA, which will be largely offset by normal operating expense increases, including inflation, merit increases and other acquisition-related expenses. Excluding acquisition-related operating expenses, the company expects 2024 operating expenses to be approximately flat compared with 2023 operating expenses. In addition, GAAP operating expenses in the first quarter of 2024 will reflect a $5 million to $6 million restructuring charge. The company will provide more details on the restructuring during its fourth-quarter 2023 earnings call in February.
