Butterfly Network Reports Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results
Butterfly Network, Inc. (NYSE: BFLY) ("Butterfly"), a digital health company transforming care with handheld, whole-body ultrasound, today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, and provided a business update.
"This past quarter has been an important one for our progress and trajectory as an organization. Not only are we piloting the growth of a truly disruptive technology, we're also at the heart of our evolution as a young public company - continuing to build upon the changes we made last year in how we operate, innovate and bring value to the healthcare ecosystem," said Dr. Todd Fruchterman, Butterfly's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our team is laser-focused on making Butterfly Easy, Everywhere and Economical, embodied in a well-defined strategy to help us deliver our value to the global healthcare ecosystem." Fruchterman continued, "These three core principles are how we will drive adoption and realize our vision. Mindful of what matters most to our customers and the long-term success of Butterfly, we were able to reduce our expenses in the quarter, informed by a better understanding of our strategic investment priorities."
"To ensure our ability to achieve the Company's mission at scale we also have adopted a plan to extend our cash runway," Fruchterman added. "This plan includes improved efficiencies and targeted reductions in our workforce, aligned to our strategic priorities. The talent and mission-driven dedication of our team has made these decisions challenging on a personal level, but I am confident these changes strengthen our position to capture the value of our market leading innovation and set us up for a future where Butterfly is the standard of care, everywhere."
The Company is reiterating its full year revenue guidance in the range of $83 to $88 million and increasing its Adjusted EBITDA guidance to a loss of $155 to $145 million from a loss of $195 to $175 million to reflect the impact of our capital preservation plan.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to providing financial measurements based on generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("GAAP"), the Company provides additional financial metrics that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP ("non-GAAP"). The non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release are Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted gross profit and Adjusted gross margin. The Company presents non-GAAP financial measures in order to assist readers of its condensed consolidated financial statements in understanding the core operating results that its management uses to evaluate the business and for financial planning purposes. The Company's non-GAAP financial measures, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted gross profit and Adjusted gross margin, provide an additional tool for investors to use in comparing our financial performance over multiple periods.
Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted gross profit and Adjusted gross margin are key performance measures that the Company's management uses to assess our operating performance. These non-GAAP measures facilitate internal comparisons of the Company's operating performance on a more consistent basis. The Company uses these performance measures for business planning purposes and forecasting. The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted gross profit and Adjusted gross margin enhance an investor's understanding of the Company's financial performance as they are useful in assessing its operating performance from period-to-period by excluding certain items that the Company believes are not representative of its core business.
Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted gross profit and Adjusted gross margin may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because they may not calculate these measures in the same manner. Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted gross profit and Adjusted gross margin are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered in isolation of, or as an alternative to, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. When evaluating the Company's performance, you should consider Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted gross profit and Adjusted gross margin alongside other financial performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, including net loss, gross profit, and gross margin.
The non-GAAP financial measures do not replace the presentation of the Company's GAAP financial results and should only be used as a supplement to, not as a substitute for, the Company's financial results presented in accordance with GAAP. In this press release, the Company has provided a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss, Adjusted gross profit to gross profit, and Adjusted gross margin to gross margin, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted gross profit and Adjusted gross margin to corresponding GAAP measures is not available on a forward-looking basis because the Company is unable to predict with reasonable certainty the non-cash component of employee compensation expense, changes in its working capital needs, variances in its supply chain, the impact of earnings or charges resulting from matters the Company considers not to be reflective, on a recurring basis, of its ongoing operations, and other such items without unreasonable effort. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors, and could be material to the Company's results computed in accordance with GAAP. Management strongly encourages investors to review the Company's financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety and not rely on any single financial measure.
