I would now like to turn the call over to Roger Susi, President and Chief Executive Officer of Iradimed Corporation. Mr. Susi?

Roger Susi

Thank you operator. Good morning. And thank you for joining us on the call. I'm very happy to report that Iradimed has had yet another excellent quarter of revenue and earnings growth as reported in this morning's release, which unfortunately I must add, was earlier, only on the SEC site and not in the broader news sources until just minutes ago as there was as of yet unknown issue with the service used for disseminating our filings broadly.

As mentioned in our earlier release this was our top revenue quarter ever, and the third and a string of our strongest growth quarters. And I'll add that the trend of strong demand for our products remains very much intact and thus, we feel very good about the coming quarters as well.

As reported, our second quarter revenue was $12.7 million, nearly a 30% increase over the second quarter of last year.

Non-GAAP earnings were $0.26 or 116% over Q2 2021. I'm very pleased with these results and the hard efforts of our team with a half year behind us and growing at the record levels. We look forward to achieving our guidance for the year. Those supply risks are very much with us on a near daily basis. The team has succeeded in finding ways to prevail and we feel that measures put in place these last months will continue to help us mitigate supply risks.

Our sales team continues to perform well, increasingly driving customer demand for our products with total Q2 bookings continuing to reach record levels, once again, coming in higher than shipments for the quarter. Additionally, the strong backlog provides great visibility and affords us the ability to maneuver and reallocate resources as supply issues may arise. Sales are well balanced and strong from both the pump and monitor product lines with excitement and interest growing for the new FMD product as well.

Our engineering and regulatory teams continue to work extremely hard, responding to FDA to clear their questions and obtain 510(k) clearance for our next-generation IV pump, the MRidium 3870. A large written response will be filed in August. And from there, we expect to hear from FDA in September or October, and learn of the next steps. Assuming, this FDA reply will be straightforward. The team will next turn their efforts towards obtaining CE Mark for the 3870, allowing sales into EU countries.

Though with economic conditions in Europe, as they currently are. And with the euro having broken the buck, the business opportunities there are expected to be weak for some time. Regarding our new ferromagnetic detection system, we finished producing a small number of systems just at the end of the quarter and along with an additional backlog of 12 units currently being prepared, we plan to report revenue for all these units in the upcoming Q3.

As I said earlier, interest is building and we expect the order rate to continue increasing in Q3. Regarding our financial guidance with our current bookings trend and with added visibility, we have through a growing backlog, we believe we are well on track to attain the goals we have guided towards as well as our ability to continue growth at these record levels.

We are reiterating our guidance for the full 2022 revenue of $52.5 million to $53.2 million, GAAP earnings of $0.89 to $0.95 and non-GAAP earnings of $0.96 to $1.03.

Additionally, for the third quarter of this year, we expect revenue of $13.1 million to $13.3 million with GAAP earnings of $0.21 to $0.24 and non-GAAP earnings of $0.22 to $0.25.

Now, I’ll turn the call over to our new CFO, Jack Glenn to introduce himself and review the financial results for the quarter. Jack is reaching out to us from home as he’s suffering a bit from COVID, but as a strong CFO would do. He’s on the phone with us today. So Jack, please.

Jack Glenn

Thank you, Roger, and good morning, everyone. Before summarizing the financial results for the quarter, I would like to take a moment to introduce myself. My career as a CFO has spent over 25 years with most of that time spent in the medical device industry. IRadimed is my fifth public company as CFO and I am thankful and excited to work with Roger and the IRadimed team to drive future growth and success.

Now onto the financial summary. As in the past, our results are reported on a GAAP basis and non-GAAP basis. You can find a description of our non-GAAP operating measures in this morning’s earnings release and a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the GAAP measure on the last page of today’s release.

As we reported earlier this morning, revenue in the second quarter of 2022 was $12.7 million an increase of 29.7%, compared to the second quarter of 2021. Revenue from domestic sales increased 34.5% to $10.8 million and revenue from international sales increased 7.8% to $1.9 million.

Overall, domestic revenue accounted for 85% of total revenue for Q2 2022, compared to 82% for Q2 of 2021. Device revenue increased 50.4% to $8.8 million. This was driven by a 45.7% increase in monitor revenue resulting from continued strong execution by our sales team on the conversion of the sales opportunity pipeline. The average selling price of our MRI compatible IV infusion pump system during the second quarter of 2022 was approximately 37,400 compared to approximately 41,600 for the second quarter of 2021.

This decrease relates to higher international unit sales and an unfavorable product sales mix compared to the same period in 2021. The average selling price of our MRI compatible patient vital signs monitoring system during the second quarter of 2022 was approximately 48,700, compared to approximately 39,700 for the same period in 2021.

This increase relates to higher domestic unit sales and price increases that we began implementing during the second half of 2021. Revenue from disposables and services decreased 1.7% to $3.4 million for the second quarter of 2022, while revenue from our maintenance contracts was consistent at $0.5 million for both periods.

The gross margin was 79.7% for the 2022 quarter compared to 74.7% for the 2021 quarter. The increase in gross margin percent is primarily due to maintaining a price increase implemented during the second half of 2021 and higher domestic sales compared to the same period in 2021.

While the supply chain remains challenging, we believe any negative impact from higher costs will likely be limited and partially offset by higher unit production levels, resulting in gross margins consistent with our historical ranges. Operating expenses were $6 million or 47% of revenue compared to $5.5 million or approximately 55.9% of revenue for the second quarter of 2021. On a dollar basis, this increase is primarily due to higher sales commissions and sales activities, as well as higher research and development expenses related to the next generation pump offset by reduced legal and professional fees.

As a result, income from operations grew 126% to $4.2 million for the 2022 quarter. We recognized the tax expense during the second quarter of 2022 of approximately $939,000 resulting in an effective tax rate of 22.5% compared to a tax expense of approximately $388,000 in the 2021 quarter. This increase was due to higher sales – higher taxable income partially offset by benefits associated with stock-based compensation and research and development credits.

On a GAAP basis, net income was $0.26 per share compared to $0.12 for the 2021 quarter. On a non-GAAP basis, adjusted income was $0.26 per diluted share for the 2022 quarter compared to $0.14 for the second quarter of 2021. Cash from operations were $3.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 down from $4.5 million for the same period in 2021. This decrease was primarily due to increased accounts receivable on the higher sales volume. For the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, our free cash flow and non-GAAP measure was $1.5 million and $3.5 million respectively.

And with that, now I will now turn the call over for questions. Operator?

Question-and-Answer Session

Operator

Thank you. [Operator Instructions] Our first question comes from Scott Henry with ROTH Capital Partners. You may proceed.

Scott Henry

Thank you, and good morning. Just a couple questions. First on the FMD. It sounds like if, I heard correctly, there should be at least 12 units sold in Q3. Could you talk about – how much – how should we think about revenue per unit for that product?

Roger Susi

Yes, Scott, this is Roger. Maybe I'll take that first. So, the initial ones, I suppose, are being sold with pricing that we're feeling our way through. These have been at the upper $20,000 area, $27,000, $28,000. So that's what you'll probably see for the initial couple of quarters as we get our toes in this water. Right? And from there, I hope as you've seen what we've done with the pumps and the monitors that we get a little bit of uplift in our ASPs, as time goes on and the market conditions show us that we're on track with the right product.

Scott Henry

Okay, great. And then for clarity, I know you said, you would expect to hear from the FDA in kind of September, October on that next generation pump. I mean, would you, obviously, you would prefer final approval at that time, but do you think there's also potential for more correspondence or how should we think about what could happen in that timeframe?

Roger Susi

Well, there's always a little more correspondence even when they're preparing the final release that generally takes a takes a whole month, just some back and forth finishing touches to the final letter. So that would be great. We don't know how much capacity the FDA has right at this moment in time though, we keep our eye on this group that does IV pumps and they are rather shorthanded. So that will probably impact, how fast they can work on anything in that IV pump group as well. We have no idea how to gauge that at this point. We'll see.

Scott Henry

Okay. great. Thank you. It sounds like we'll just think about Q4 and then, hopefully it comes in at some point during Q4 that final approval. Shifting to the model spending was sort of down across all categories in Q2 versus Q1. I guess Q1 was a strong spending quarter. In general were there any trends there? Or would you just look at that is variation from quarter-to-quarter and any trends there?

Jack Glenn

Yes, Scott.

Roger Susi

Do you want to take that one, Jack?

Jack Glenn

Yes. Sure. Sure. I would say Scott that, yes, there’s some variability between the quarters, but our spin is pretty much in line with what we’ve been forecasting. There has been an increase in – on the sales side, obviously, with there has been increase in our sales activities in our sales force, and then any of the increase in the spend on R&D will be tied to the efforts on the next generation pump that we’re working on.

Scott Henry

Okay.

Jack Glenn

The G&A side is pretty stable. There was a little bit of a decline in some of our legal and professional expense.

Scott Henry

Okay. And then the final question, just on gross margins, you talked a little bit about it on the prepared remark, but my takeaway was, and I want to see if I heard this correctly. Q2 was very strong and it sounds like going forward, gross margins are in fact getting stronger, but perhaps not quite as strong as Q2 would indicate, is that’s the way I should think about that?

Jack Glenn

Yes. I think that Q2 was, oh, go ahead. Roger. Sorry.

Roger Susi

Go ahead, Jack.

Jack Glenn

No, sorry. I was just going to add to that, yes, I think there that Q2 kind of stood out a little bit, a little above the historical, but some of that was due with the product mix, as we mentioned. Our ASPs have been holding very steady. The other thing that to note would be, I think that as we, the higher sales volume, we’re absorbing more in our overhead and from the fixed overhead standpoint. So that certainly helps, but I think, in that historical range is kind of where we see it going forward.

Scott Henry

Okay, great. Thank you for taking the questions.

Jack Glenn

Sure.

Roger Susi

Thanks, Scott. Good to talk to you.

Operator

Thank you. [Operator Instructions] And I’m not showing any further questions at this time. I would not like to turn the call back over to Roger Susi for any further remarks.

Roger Susi

Thank you. Again, with great pleasure that we report our record growth, especially in light of today’s economic upheavals. Your company is running very efficiently and its products are being adopted at an accelerating rate. Our sales force is growing and you will see that expansion plans to meet growth are being developed. And in fact, currently in initial stages of implementation. With that, I look forward to reporting our future success as the year progresses and thank you all.

Operator

Thank you. This concludes today’s conference call. Thank you for participating. You may now disconnect.
