Butterfly Network, Inc. Reports 2020 Financial Results

Butterfly Network, Inc. (NYSE: BFLY) (“Butterfly” or the “Company”), a digital health company working to bring medical imaging to all and to advance global health equity, today announced financial results for the full year 2020 and provided a business update.

“In 2020, Butterfly grew revenues by 68% to $46.3 million as probe sales continued to increase, driven by the further adoption of our technology by healthcare providers,” said Dr. Todd Fruchterman, Butterfly Network’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “In the fourth quarter, we introduced the next-generation Butterfly probe, the iQ+, and more upgrades to our proprietary, patented technology platform. We are excited to see the demand for our comprehensive solution, which helps healthcare providers intercept disease and treat conditions earlier, and we expect will ultimately reduce the total cost of care while improving patient outcomes.”

“The completion of our business combination with Longview Acquisition Corp. in February 2021 solidifies the company’s financial foundation for the next stage of its growth,” said Stephanie Fielding, Butterfly Network Chief Financial Officer.

Full Year 2020 Financial Results

Total revenues for the full year 2020 were $46.3 million, a 68% increase year-over-year from $27.6 million in 2019. Product revenues for the full year 2020 were $38.4 million, an increase of 53% from $25.1 million in 2019, and Subscription revenues were $7.9 million in 2020, growing 216% from $2.5 million in 2019. These increases were primarily due to a higher volume of products sold from a ramping up of commercial efforts and the introduction of Butterfly iQ+, the next generation hardware in October 2020.

Total gross loss for 2020 was ($61.2) million, compared to 2019 gross loss of ($20.9) million. Total gross margin for the full year of 2020 was (132.4%), compared to (75.8%) in 2019. Cost of revenue in 2020 was significantly impacted by non-recurring charges totaling $62.7 million.

Operating expenses in 2020 were $100.4 million, a moderate 23% increase year-over-year from $81.4 million in 2019, as the company conserved cash while various financing options were evaluated over the course of the year.

Net loss in 2020 was ($162.7) million as compared to a net loss of ($99.7) million during 2019.

EBITDA was ($160.3) million in 2020, compared with ($101.5) million in 2019. Adjusted EBITDA was ($85.2) million in 2020 compared with ($86.0) million in 2019.

Cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2020 were $60.2 million.

Recent Company Highlights

In February 2021, Butterfly announced the appointment of Dr. Fruchterman as its President and Chief Executive Officer in advance of the closing of its business combination with Longview Acquisition Corp.

The company established a number of partnerships in 2020 designed to expand awareness and the reach of its unique point-of-care ultrasound. This included a collaboration with the American College of Cardiology to transform cardiovascular care using point-of-care ultrasound, announced in October 2020.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company’s financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, the Company has provided certain non-GAAP financial measures, including EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. Management uses these non-GAAP measures to evaluate the Company’s operating performance in a manner that allows for meaningful period-to-period comparison and analysis of trends in its business. Management believes that such measures are important in comparing current results with prior period results and are useful to investors and financial analysts in assessing the Company’s operating performance. The non-GAAP financial information presented here should be considered in conjunction with, and not as a substitute for, the financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures set forth below.
