Fourth Quarter Financial Results
In the fourth quarter of 2022, total revenue was $16.1 million, an increase of 91% compared to the fourth quarter of 2021. Revenue growth was driven by a 24% increase in LDD revenue and a 210% increase in LAL revenue compared to the fourth quarter of 2021.

Total operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2022 were $22.4 million, a 28% increase from $17.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2021. The rise in operating expenses was primarily due to a higher sales and marketing headcount, travel and trade shows to support the company’s growth plans.
In the fourth quarter of 2022, the company reported a net loss of $(15.6) million, or $(0.56) per basic and diluted share, compared to net loss of $(15.7) million, or $(0.58) per share on a basic and diluted basis in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Fiscal Year 2022 Financial Results
Full year 2022 total revenue was $49.0 million, an increase of 117% compared to the full year of 2021. The revenue increase was due to a 71% increase in the number of LDDs sold and an 204% increase in the number of LALs sold in 2022 compared to 2021.
Gross profit for the full year of 2022 was $21.3 million, or 43.5% of revenue compared to gross profit of $4.5 million, or 20.0% of revenue for the full year of 2021. The increase in gross profit was due to the increase in the number of LALs and LDDs sold.
Total operating expenses for the full year of 2022 were $84.6 million, a 48% increase from $57.3 million for the full year of 2021. The increase was primarily driven by higher headcount in sales and marketing to support the growth of the business, costs of operating as a public company and an increase of $3.8 million in non-cash stock-based compensation expense.
In 2022, net loss was $(66.8) million, or $(2.41) per share on a basic and diluted basis compared to a net loss of $(48.7) million, or $(3.57) per share on a basic and diluted basis in 2021.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements presented under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), we believe certain non-GAAP measures, including adjusted net loss, and adjusted net loss per share, basic and diluted, provide useful information to investors and are useful in evaluating our operating performance. For example, we exclude stock-based compensation expense and change in fair value of warrants because these are non-cash in nature and we believe excluding these items provides meaningful supplemental information regarding our operational performance and allows investors the ability to make more meaningful comparisons between our operating results and those of other companies.
We believe that non-GAAP financial information, when taken collectively, may be helpful to investors because it provides consistency and comparability with past financial performance. However, non-GAAP financial information is presented for supplemental informational purposes only, has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. In addition, other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate similarly titled non-GAAP measures differently or may use other measures to evaluate their performance. A reconciliation is provided below for each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable financial measure stated in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.
Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted Net Loss Per Share
Adjusted net loss is a non-GAAP financial measure that we define as net loss adjusted for (i) stock-based compensation and (ii) change in fair value of warrants. We believe adjusted net loss provides investors with useful information on period-to-period performance as evaluated by management and comparison with our past financial performance and is useful in evaluating our operating performance compared to that of other companies in our industry, as this metric generally eliminates the effects of certain items that may vary from company to company for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance.
Reconciliations of net loss to adjusted net loss and the presentation of adjusted net loss per share, basic and diluted, are as follows:
