(NASDAQ: RCEL, ASX: AVH), a regenerative medicine company that is developing and commercializing a technology platform that enables point-of-care autologous skin restoration for multiple unmet needs, today announced preliminary, unaudited financial results for the fiscal fourth quarter 2021.
For the fiscal quarter ending June 30, 2021, AVITA Medical has to date realized total revenue in excess of its fiscal fourth quarter guidance range of $8.2 million to $8.6 million. Based on the strength of both RECELL® commercial revenue and BARDA related revenue, the Company is raising fiscal Q4 guidance to be in the range of $9.5 - $9.7 million, consisting of $6.0 - $6.2 million of RECELL® commercial revenue and $3.5 million of RECELL® revenue associated with BARDA, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority within the Office of the Assistance Secretary for Preparedness and Response. RECELL® commercial revenue as revised in the guidance reflects a 55% to 60% increase over the prior year period and 30% to 34% increase over the third quarter of 2021.
“As people begin to return to normal activities after the confines of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen an increase in burn accidents requiring treatment with the RECELL® System in burn centers across the country,” said Dr. Mike Perry, AVITA Medical’s Chief Executive Officer.

ABOUT AVITA MEDICAL, INC.
AVITA Medical is a regenerative medicine company with a technology platform positioned to address unmet medical needs in burns, chronic wounds, and aesthetics indications. AVITA Medical’s patented and proprietary collection and application technology provides innovative treatment solutions derived from the regenerative properties of a patient’s own skin. The medical devices work by preparing a RES® REGENERATIVE EPIDERMAL SUSPENSION, an autologous suspension comprised of the patient’s skin cells necessary to regenerate natural healthy epidermis. This autologous suspension is then sprayed onto the areas of the patient requiring treatment.
AVITA Medical’s first U.S. product, the RECELL® System, was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in September 2018. The RECELL System is indicated for use in the treatment of acute thermal burns. The RECELL System is used to prepare Spray-On Skin™ Cells using a small amount of a patient’s own skin, providing a new way to treat severe burns, while significantly reducing the amount of donor skin required. The RECELL System is designed to be used at the point of care alone or in combination with autografts depending on the depth of the burn injury. Compelling data from randomized, controlled clinical trials conducted at major U.S. burn centers and real-world use in more than 10,000 patients globally reinforce that the RECELL System is a significant advancement over the current standard of care for burn patients and offers benefits in clinical outcomes and cost savings. Healthcare professionals should read the INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE - RECELL® Autologous Cell Harvesting Device (https://recellsystem.com/) for a full description of indications for use and important safety information including contraindications, warnings, and precautions.
In international markets, our products are marketed under the RECELL System brand to promote skin healing in a wide range of applications including burns, chronic wounds, and aesthetics.
