Published

LEHI, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Owlet, Inc. (“Owlet” or the “Company”) (NYSE:OWLT), the pioneer of smart infant monitoring, today reports financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024. Owlet’s Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder, Kurt Workman, President and Chief Revenue Officer, Jonathan Harris, and Chief Financial Officer, Kate Scolnick, will host a conference call to review the Company’s results and provide a business update today, May 6, 2024, at 4:30 p.m. ET.

Q1 2024 Financial Highlights:

  • Q1 Revenue was approximately $14.8 million, up approximately 37% year over year.
  • Q1 Gross Margin was approximately 44.4%, up 570 basis points year over year.
  • Q1 Net Income was approximately $3.3 million, compared to Net Loss of approximately $11.9 million year over year.
  • Q1 adjusted EBITDA loss was approximately $3.1 million, improving approximately 46% year over year.

“We’ve started off 2024 by delivering solid year over year growth. Consumer sell-through demand is up 60% year over year for our Dream Sock and Dream Duo products following FDA clearance, and the initial feedback on our groundbreaking medical device has been overwhelmingly positive. Parents are benefiting from the expanded health information our Dream Sock now provides and this is translating into higher NPS scores, healthy demand and sell-through across our consumer channels. In addition, parents are now able to contact their healthcare providers for prescriptions and seek support through Owletcare.com with growing reimbursement coverage from insurance providers which is a bright opportunity in 2024 and 2025.” said Kurt Workman, Owlet’s Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder.

Workman continued, “As we’ve surpassed over 2 million infants monitored on our platform, the unequaled insights from our digital data capabilities are strengthening. Globally, parents and caregivers want accessible health insights between hospital and home and Owlet is uniquely addressing this demand. We believe our growing market position and operational health are strong momentum indicators for continued success in 2024.”

Financial Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2024

Revenues for the first quarter of 2024 were approximately $14.8 million compared to revenue in the first quarter of 2023 of approximately $10.7M. The increase was primarily due to higher sales of Dream Sock products, reflecting an increase in consumer demand and sell-through as compared to the same period in the prior year.

Cost of revenues for the first quarter of 2024 was approximately $8.2 million with a gross margin of 44.4%. Gross margin increased year over year primarily due to higher revenue and lower direct product and fulfillment costs.

Operating expenses, including stock-based compensation, were approximately $12.3 million for the first quarter of 2024, compared to approximately $15.1 million for the same period in 2023. Operating costs decreased year over year primarily due to transaction costs and lower spend on G&A costs to support the business.

Operating loss was approximately $5.7 million for the first quarter of 2024, compared to approximately $11.0 million for the first quarter of 2023.

Net income was approximately $3.3 million for the first quarter of 2024, compared to net loss of approximately $11.9 million for the first quarter of 2023. Net income in the first quarter of 2024 is primarily driven by Owlet demonstrating stronger operating results year over year and a gain related to the Company’s common stock warrants outstanding.

A gain of approximately $9.2 million in the first quarter of 2024 resulted from a decrease in the fair value of common stock warrants outstanding as compared to a gain of approximately $1.9 million in the first quarter of 2023.

Adjusted EBITDA loss was approximately $3.1 million for the first quarter of 2024, compared to approximately $5.8 million for the first quarter of 2023.

Basic earnings per share was $0.15 for the first quarter of 2024, compared to basic net loss per share of ($1.54) for the first quarter of 2023. Diluted net loss per share was ($0.51) for the first quarter of 2024, compared to diluted net loss per share of ($1.54) for the same period in 2023. Adjusted net loss per share was ($0.39) for the first quarter of 2024, compared to adjusted net loss per share of ($1.10) for the same period in 2023.

Forward-looking statements are based on the Company’s expectations at the time such statements are made, speak only as of the dates they are made and are susceptible to a number of risks, uncertainties and other factors. For all such forward-looking statements, the Company claims the protection of the safe harbor for forward-looking statements contained in the Reform Act.

Moreover, the Company operates in an evolving environment. Except as required by law, the Company assumes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements after the date of this press release, whether because of new information, future events or otherwise, although Owlet may do so from time to time. The Company does not endorse any projections regarding future performance that may be made by third parties.

Disclosure Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the financial measures presented in this release in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), the Company has included certain non-GAAP financial measures in this release, including EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per share.

The Company uses such non-GAAP financial measures as internal measures of business operating performance and as performance measures for benchmarking against the Company’s peers and competitors. The Company believes its presentation of EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per share provide a meaningful perspective of the underlying operating performance of the Company’s current business and enables investors to better understand and evaluate its historical and prospective operating performance. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are important supplemental measures of operating performance because they exclude items that vary from period to period without correlation to the Company’s core operating performance and highlight trends in its business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on GAAP financial measures. Due to the nature of the items being excluded, such items do not reflect future gains, losses, expenses or benefits and are not indicative of the Company’s future operating performance. The Company believes investors, analysts and other interested parties use EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per share in evaluating issuers, and the presentation of these measures facilitates a comparative assessment of the Company’s operating performance in addition to the Company’s performance based on GAAP results.

The Company’s non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as an alternative to net loss or net loss per share as a measure of financial performance or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, and should not be construed as an inference that the Company’s future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items.

EBITDA is defined as net loss adjusted for income tax provision and interest expense, net and depreciation and amortization.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net loss adjusted for income tax provision, interest expense, interest expense from contingent beneficial conversion feature, interest income, depreciation and amortization, restructuring costs, warrant liability adjustments, gain on loan forgiveness, stock-based compensation, and transaction costs.

Adjusted net loss is defined as net loss adjusted for restructuring costs, common stock warrant liability adjustments, stock-based compensation, and transaction costs. Adjusted net loss per share is defined as adjusted net loss divided by weighted-average shares of common stock.

EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per share are not recognized terms under GAAP, and the Company’s presentation of these non-GAAP measures does not replace the presentation of the Company’s financial results in accordance with GAAP. Because all companies do not use EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per share (and similarly titled financial measures) in the same way, those measures as used by other companies may not be consistent with the way the Company calculates such measures. The non-GAAP financial measures included in this release should not be construed as substitutes for or better indicators of the Company’s performance than the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. See the reconciliation tables that accompany this release for additional information regarding certain of the non-GAAP financial measures included herein.
