“Our fourth quarter preliminary total sales growth of approximately 30% to 35% year-over-year was driven by approximately 39% to 43% growth in our Advanced Energy business as a result of strong demand for our innovative Helium Plasma Technology products by our cosmetic surgery customers in both the U.S. and international markets,” said Charlie Goodwin, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Despite the continued challenges in our operating environment due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, we saw strong utilization of our Renuvion® handpieces which led to sales of handpieces increasing 80% year-over-year in the U.S. and increasing 75% year-over-year outside the U.S. in the fourth quarter. While our global handpiece sales trends in the fourth quarter were impressive, the pace of the global recovery continues to impact the demand for generators. Generator sales increased more than 20% year-over-year in the fourth quarter driven by 80% sales growth to international customers, including shipments to customers in international markets which we entered into over the last nine months of 2020. While improving trends in the U.S. fueled significant improvement in generator demand on a sequential basis, generator sales to U.S. customers were still down year-over-year in the fourth quarter.”
Mr. Goodwin continued: “I am proud of the Apyx Medical team as the strong revenue performance we have reported in 2020 is a direct result of their strong execution and continued dedication to supporting our customers during this challenging time. We look forward to continued improvement in the global operating environment and believe our prospects for 2021 are highly attractive. With an estimated $1.5 billion addressable market opportunity in the U.S. alone, an expanded addressable market opportunity outside the U.S. with a number of new international registrations in 2020, and a strong balance sheet, we continue to believe we are uniquely positioned, longer-term, to drive strong, sustained growth and improving profitability, into the future.”
