ATLANTA, Oct. 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alimera Sciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: ALIM) (Alimera), a leader in the commercialization and development of prescription ophthalmology treatments for the management of retinal diseases, today announces top-line revenue guidance for the quarter ended September 30, 2019.
Alimera expects to report consolidated net revenue for the third quarter of 2019 exceeding $12.8 million. This compares to $10.9 million for the second quarter of 2019 and $11.1 million in the third quarter of 2018.
“We are pleased to pre-release our global revenue expectation for the third quarter of 2019. In the U.S. in the third quarter we saw sequential growth over the second quarter, which supports our belief that we have successfully addressed the domestic sales force issues we experienced in the first half of the year,” said Rick Eiswirth, President and CEO of Alimera. “Our international sales segment continues to exhibit strong growth, as we further penetrate into existing territories with ILUVIEN®’s two approved indications, diabetic macular edema and non-infectious posterior uveitis. We look forward to sharing more detail on these top line results and other performance metrics on our third quarter earnings call at the end of this month.”
Alimera will report its complete third quarter 2019 earnings results on October 29, 2019, after the close of the market, with a conference call to be held on October 30, 2019 at 9:00am Eastern time.
