Bacterin Announces Record 2011 Revenue of $30.1 Million; Up 96% Year-over-Year

BELGRADE, Mont., March 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Bacterin International Holdings, Inc. (NYSE Amex: BONE), a leader in the development of revolutionary bone graft material and antimicrobial coatings for medical applications, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2011:

Fourth Quarter 2011 Highlights:

  • Revenue increased 72% to $9.1 million, compared to the $5.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2010.
  • Operating loss decreased by 21% to $2.7 million, compared to a loss of $3.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2010.
  • Two-year study results showed Company's flagship product, OsteoSponge®, equivalence to rhBMP-2 in spinal fusion, an important feature at a time when surgeons are moving away from rhBMP-2 because of concerns over complications. OsteoSponge® has already been used in 100,000 procedures prior to the data announcement and the Company expects this data to help further increase its market share, a substantial opportunity as the leading rhBMP-2 based product generates $800 million a year.
  • A distribution agreement was signed with Jeil for LeForte Craniomaxillofacial System.
  • Hospital accounts increased to 616 facilities, an increase of 27% over 484 facilities in Q4 2010.

  • Full Year 2011 Highlights:

  • Revenue increased 96% to $30.1 million, compared to $15.4 million for fiscal year 2010.
  • Operating loss decreased by 25% to $6.5 million, compared to fiscal year 2010.
  • A $15 million credit facility, with an initial draw of $7 million, was secured with MidCap Financial and Silicon Valley Bank; and approximately $3 million was raised in private placement offerings.
  • The Company acquired the assets of Robinson MedSurg LLC, a medical device distribution company focused primarily on maxillofacial and craniofacial surgery devices.
  • Entered into an Equity  Purchase Agreement for up to $31 million with Lincoln Park Capital Fund LLC
  • New executive management talent and management reorganization helped drive the company's most active processing quarter in its history.
  • A third human acellular biological scaffold, hMatrix®, an acellular dermal scaffold, was launched, which Bacterin plans to initially market for homologous use indications, including abdominal wall repair, breast reconstruction, and wound covering - an addressable market the company estimates exceeds $2.5 billion annually in the U.S.
  • Signed national group purchasing organization contract for Bacterin Biologics and first for Elutia® Wound Drains with ROi, a recognized leader in health care supply chain management for hospitals and medical practices.
  • Materially increased the number of medical facilities in which its products are used and began the doubling of operating capacity through installation of new equipment.

  • Secured $5 million credit facility with BridgeBank, which was repaid with proceeds from the Midcap financing
  • Joined Russell 3000, Russell Microcap, and Russell Global Indexes and achieved NYSE Amex listing status.

  • Management Commentary"We increased our revenue on a quarterly basis by 21% sequentially, 72% year over year, and 96% for the full year 2011 over the full year 2010, showing accelerating progress," said Guy Cook, Bacterin's chairman and CEO. "While our full year gross margin slid to 70% primarily due to increased discounting on stocking purchase orders and non recurring adjustments and increased reserves, we are poised for overall operating margins to expand considerably as we gain operating leverage from our sales force and largely established infrastructure.

    "This quarter, we received further validation of OsteoSponge® from an important two-year study, showing equivalence to rhBMP-2 in spinal fusion," Mr. Cook continued. "We expect sales to grow even more rapidly on the back of this strong data set. We also signed a distribution agreement with Jeil Medical Corporation that will leverage our direct sales force, providing additional craniomaxillofacial (CMF) product, to sell into the same call points.

    "Our products target markets that in aggregate amount to several billion dollars in annual revenue, which provides significant runway for us to capture share and grow quickly," Mr. Cook added. "Our proprietary processing technology is also a unique asset that we believe provides shareholder value. The key driver of our revenue growth in 2012 will once again be the Osteo family of products, supported by the acceleration of hMatrix, medical device, and royalty revenue. With an increase in our sales force, the new data validation and distribution agreement adding even more product to sell, we remain comfortable with our previously stated expectation of $53 million to $56 million in revenue in 2012."

    Q4 2011 Financial ResultsRevenue for the quarter was a record $9.1 million, up 21% from the previous quarter, and an increase of 72% compared to $5.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. The increase in revenue was primarily attributed to the company's continued market penetration, driven by unique product benefits for both the patient and medical care provider, combined with the continued expansion of the company's direct sales force.

    Cost of sales in the fourth quarter included the following:

  • Non recurring increase in fourth quarter Cost of Sales of $795,000 for the write off of a related party receivable from West Coast Tissue Services (one of Bacterin's donor agencies). In December of 2011, Bacterin signed a four-year extension with West Coast Tissue. In exchange for the extension and a related right of first refusal on donors, the Company agreed to write off the receivable and included the $795,000 write off in Cost of sales in the fourth quarter of 2011.
  • Bacterin increased its inventory reserve on quarantined inventory by $200,000 for tissue it received back from customers in connection with a voluntary market withdrawal of products during 2011. The FDA is still reviewing whether or not we will be able to release the product but the Company established the reserve in order to be conservative.
  • Non recurring write off $200,000 of scrap inventory of CMF medical device inventory during the quarter
  • The Company performed a detailed review of the corporate overhead being applied to its inventory and decided to increase the percentage of general and administrative expenses being allocated to cost of sales on increased production and during the quarter made an adjustment to decrease its general and administrative expenses by $360,000 and increase cost of sales.

  • Fourth Quarter 2011 EBITDA loss was $1.5 million compared to an EBITDA loss of $316,000 in the prior quarter and an EBITDA loss of $2.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2010.  Excluding the non-recurring write off of the West Coast Tissue Accounts Receivable of $795,000 and inventory reserve and write offs of $400,000, fourth quarter 2011 negative EBITDA was  $354,000,  unchanged from the prior quarter.  This was   largely due to  an increase in our allowance for doubtful accounts on a stocking order sale made in 2011.

    Gross profit margin for the quarter was 44%, as compared to 83% in the previous quarter and 82% in the year-ago quarter. Excluding the above adjustments, Q4 2011 gross margin would have been 58% of sales. The decrease in Q4 2011 gross margin (excluding the above items) compared to prior quarters is due to an increased sales discount on  $1.4 million of stocking order sales during the quarter and the  increase of corporate general and administrative expenses allocated to  cost of sales due to increased production.

    Operating expenses for the quarter totaled $6.7 million, as compared to $7.8 million in the previous quarter, and $7.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. Operating loss for the quarter was $2.7 million, compared to $1.6 million in the previous quarter, and $3.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. Net loss was $4.4 million or $(0.11) per basic share for the quarter. This compares to a net loss of $3.2 million or $(0.08) per basic share  in the previous quarter, and a net loss in fourth quarter of 2010 of $6.7 million or $(0.18) per basic share.

    Cash and cash equivalents and net accounts receivable was $7.8 million at December 31, 2011, compared to a total of $3.8 million at December 31, 2010.

    Full Year Financial ResultsRevenue for the year ended December 31, 2011 was a record $30.1 million, up 96%, compared to $15.4 million for the full year in 2010. Gross profit margin was 70%, compared to 78% in the previous year. Excluding the cost of sales adjustments, FY 2011 gross margin would have been 74% of sales. Operating expenses for the year totaled $27.5 million, compared to $20.7 million in the previous year. Operating loss for the year was $6.5 million, compared to $8.6 million in the previous year. Net loss was $3.0 million or $(0.08) per basic share for the year. This compares to a net loss of $19.5 million or $(0.61) per basic share for the previous year.

    EBITDA for the year totaled a loss of $3.0 million, compared EBITDA loss of $5.8 million in 2010.

    About the Presentation of EBITDAEBITDA is not a financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income or any other financial measures so calculated and presented, nor as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. The company defines EBITDA as net income/(loss) from operations before depreciation, amortization and non-cash stock-based compensation. Other companies (including competitors) may define EBITDA differently. The company presents EBITDA because management believes it to be an important supplemental measure of performance that is commonly used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. Management also uses this information internally for forecasting and budgeting. It may not be indicative of the historical operating results of Bacterin nor is it intended to be predictive of potential future results. Investors should not consider EBITDA in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the company's results as reported under GAAP. See "GAAP to non-GAAP Reconciliation" below for further information on this non-GAAP measure.
