AirSculpt Technologies Announces Strong Preliminary Second Quarter 2023 Revenue, Reaffirms 2023 Revenue Guidance and Updates 2023 Adjusted EBITDA Guidance
MIAMI BEACH, Fla., July 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AirSculpt Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:AIRS)(“AirSculpt” or the “Company”), a national provider of premium body contouring procedures, today announced selected unaudited preliminary financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2023.
For the second quarter, revenue is expected to be approximately $55.7 million, an increase of 12.2% over the prior year. “The results for the second quarter for both revenue and Adjusted EBITDA are ahead of our expectations and speak to the continued demand for AirSculpt,” said Todd Magazine, Chief Executive Officer of AirSculpt Technologies, Inc. “We are very pleased with our performance through the first half of 2023. We continue to focus our attention on strengthening the organization focusing on revenue growth, which includes ramping up our de novo expansion program, and right sizing our cost structure.”
The Company’s 2023 revenue guidance remains unchanged at $187 million to $192 million with the expectation of achieving the upper end of this range. The Company is also reaffirming opening five new centers in 2023. Three centers have opened in the first half of the year and are off to very strong starts and two more are expected to open in July, which is ahead of the original plan. The Company expects to report its complete second quarter results on August 11, 2023.
Also, in response to comments from the staff of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) pursuant to the SEC’s interpretations for non-GAAP financial reporting, the Company will no longer include pre-opening de novo and relocation costs as an adjustment to calculate Adjusted EBITDA in future filings. As a result, the Company is revising its full year guidance for Adjusted EBITDA to reflect this change. This adjustment does not change historical income from operations or future expected income from operations or cash flow and the Company will continue to disclose total pre-opening de novo and relocation costs supplementally in future filings. Additionally, this change will have no impact on the Company’s leverage ratio as calculated under its credit agreement as adjustments for pre-opening de novo and relocation costs are allowed under the existing agreement.
The Company’s 2023 Adjusted EBITDA outlook, as reported on May 12, 2023, was $48 to $50 million. For the full year 2023, total de novo and relocation costs are expected to be approximately $5.0 million. After adjusting for pre-opening de novo and relocation costs, the 2023 Adjusted EBITDA outlook is now $43 to $45 million, and the Company expects to perform at the upper end of this range.
To help investors more easily compare future results against prior period performance based on its revised non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin definitions, the Company is providing the following tables reflecting the Company's revised presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin for 2022 and the quarter ended March 31, 2023.

(3) The Company went public on October 28, 2021. The Company’s Adjusted EBITDA was impacted by a full year's worth of public company costs during 2022, which added an additional $6.7 million of incremental public company costs in 2022. If the Company were to assume these same incremental public company costs were incurred in the 2021 period, our Adjusted EBITDA would have been $37.9 million and Adjusted EBITDA margin would have been 28.4%.

Our future results could be affected by a variety of other factors, including, but not limited to, failure to open and operate new centers in a timely and cost-effective manner; inability to open new centers due to rising interest rates and increased operating expenses due to rising inflation; shortages or quality control issues with third-party manufacturers or suppliers; competition for surgeons; litigation or medical malpractice claims; inability to protect the confidentiality of our proprietary information; changes in the laws governing the corporate practice of medicine or fee-splitting; changes in the regulatory, economic and other conditions of the states and jurisdictions where our facilities are located; and business disruption or other losses from war, pandemic, terrorist acts or political unrest.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The Company reports financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), however, the Company believes the evaluation of ongoing operating results may be enhanced by a presentation of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per Share, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Although the Company provides guidance for adjusted EBITDA, it is not able to provide guidance for net income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure. Certain elements of the composition of net income, including equity-based compensation, are not predictable, making it impractical for us to provide guidance on net income or to reconcile our adjusted EBITDA guidance to net income without unreasonable efforts. For the same reasons, the Company is unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information regarding net income, which could be material to future results.
These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to replace financial performance measures determined in accordance with GAAP. Rather, they are presented as supplemental measures of the Company's performance that management believes may enhance the evaluation of the Company's ongoing operating results. These non-GAAP financial measures are not presented in accordance with GAAP, and the Company’s computation of these non-GAAP financial measures may vary from similar measures used by other companies. These measures have limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute or alternative to revenue, net income, operating income, cash flows from operating activities, total indebtedness or any other measures of operating performance, liquidity or indebtedness derived in accordance with GAAP.
