“We were pleased with the strong results our team delivered through the fourth quarter of 2021, which were bolstered by favorable year-end insurance claims and strong commercial execution by the entire STRATA team. Despite headwinds from the Delta and Omicron variants, STRATA continued to make meaningful progress on our strategic initiatives, which were reflected in the quality of our preliminary financial results,” said Robert Moccia, President & CEO of STRATA Skin Sciences. “Subsequent to year end, we were also delighted to complete the acquisition of Theravant Corporation’s acne treatment device assets, enabling us to enter the $5.5 billion U.S. acne care market. The acquisition represents STRATA’s second strategic asset purchase in six months, both of which were executed under new leadership and further establish STRATA’s position as the global leader of clinical dermatology devices,” concluded Moccia.

The preliminary unaudited results described in this press release are estimates and are subject to revision until the company reports its full financial results for the year ended December 2021, which is anticipated in mid-March.
