NeuroMetrix, Inc. Reports Decline in Revenue for the Latest Quarter
Segments of revenue
NeuroMetrix, Inc. reported a decrease in revenue for the latest quarter. Revenues for the third quarter of 2023 decreased by $765 thousand or 38.9% compared to the third quarter of 2022. The decline in revenue was primarily attributable to a decrease in sales of DPNCheck made into the MA market. Healthcare providers in that market are experiencing significant reductions in patient reimbursement due to changes initiated by CMS, resulting in reduced financial incentives for patient screening, including for neuropathy. The company also experienced lower Quell sales in the 2023 third quarter due to the strategic transition to prescription indications and away from over-the-counter sales.
Despite the decline in revenue, NeuroMetrix, Inc. maintained a gross profit of $781,782 for the latest quarter. The company's gross profit rate contracted by 2.9 percentage points compared to the prior year period, primarily due to lower margin Quell fibromyalgia sales initiated in 2023. Additionally, operating expenses remained relatively flat compared to the corresponding period in 2022, with a decline in research and development costs offset by an increase in sales and marketing costs.
