KENNESAW, Ga., May 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MiMedx Group, Inc. (OTCBB: MDXG), an integrated developer, manufacturer and marketer of patent protected regenerative biomaterials and bioimplants processed from human amniotic membrane, announced today its results for the quarter ended March 31, 2012.
Highlights of First Quarter 2012 ResultsThe Company recorded record revenue for the first quarter of 2012, with revenue of $3.7 million, a 255% or $2.7 million increase over first quarter of 2011 revenue of $1.0 million, and a 41% increase over fourth quarter of 2011 revenue of $2.6 million. The Company's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and share-based compensation (Adjusted EBITDA*) for the quarter ended March 31, 2012, were a record high of $314,000, a $2.6 million improvement as compared to the Adjusted EBITDA loss of $2.3 million for the first quarter of 2011. The Company also reported record gross margins for the quarter.
Management Commentary on First Quarter ResultsParker H. "Pete" Petit, Chairman and CEO, stated, "We have worked diligently to achieve positive EBITDA for the first quarter. This is a very important milestone for our shareholders, and we are very pleased that we have passed the threshold into positive EBITDA, which is a signal that we are approaching positive cash flow. Our first quarter results were driven not only by increased revenue, but also by dramatically improved gross margins and reduced spending in research and development. Our reported gross margins for the first quarter were 74%, more than a twofold improvement over 2011 gross margins of 32%. Sales in the wound care, spine and orthopedics/sports medicine markets were the greatest contributors to our significant improvement in gross margins. We continue to receive excellent reception and interest among physicians as we market our allografts from our two amniotic tissue technology platforms, AmnioFix® and EpiFix®. In fact, we finished the first quarter with a strong surge of allograft orders that were fulfilled in the early part of the second quarter."
"During the first quarter of the year, we commenced the nationwide launch of AmnioFix® Injectable, our newest tissue offering," commented Bill Taylor, President and COO. "AmnioFix® Injectable is an allograft composed of micronized amniotic tissue that is injectable and offers surgeons a clear advantage due to its natural ability to reduce inflammation at the injection site and enhance soft tissue healing of micro-tears in tendon tissue. The initial reception for AmnioFix® Injectable has been very gratifying, and it should be a significant contributor to our continued growth. We are excited about the potential of our AmnioFix® technology and very pleased that the physicians doing procedures for the soft tissue trauma, nerve and tendon protection, spinal applications and sports medicine markets are embracing our offerings."
The Company also reported that it has received a positive preliminary decision for the Q-Code from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for its EpiFix® allograft. If confirmed in November 2012, it will be effective January 1, 2013. In the fourth quarter of 2011, MiMedx was awarded the Epifix® C-Code. The Q-Code is the next step for MiMedx in the reimbursement process through CMS and another significant indicator in the acceptance by CMS of the uses of the Company's wound care allograft in treating Medicare patients with chronic wounds. The Q-Code will replace the C-Code and will be the foundation for EpiFix® reimbursement long term.
Balance Sheet and Other FinancialsThe Company reported that its current assets increased to $7.1 million at the end of the first quarter, as compared to $6.9 million at December 31, 2011. Current liabilities declined $1.1 million from $7.9 million as of December 31, 2011, to $6.8 million as of March 31, 2012. "We are very pleased with the progress we have made in strengthening our balance sheet, and this will remain a key focus for the Company," commented Mike Senken, Chief Financial Officer.
Cash as of March 31, 2012, was $3.0 million, a decrease of $1.1 million compared to $4.1 million, as of December 31, 2011.
The decrease in cash was due primarily to increases in working capital in support of revenue growth including accounts receivable, inventory and prepaid expenses.
For the quarter ended March 31, 2012, the Company recorded a net loss of $1.1 million, or $0.01 per diluted common share, a $2.3 million improvement as compared to the net loss of $3.4 million, or $0.05 per diluted common share, recorded for the quarter ended March 31, 2011. The net loss included significant non-cash related expenses for share- based compensation expense, depreciation expense and amortization of intangibles and debt discount as discussed below.
Discussion of Other Income (Expense) To secure the necessary financing to fund working capital growth, the Company needed to provide investors with a market competitive offering reflective of the potential risks and rewards related to the Company's share price. In December 2011, the Company secured $5 million in convertible senior secured promissory notes with accompanying warrants. Although the warrants tied to the note would be paid in Company stock, current generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) rules require these warrants to be treated as interest expense ("debt discount") on the Statement of Operations when they are tied to a debt instrument such as a convertible note. The Company reported approximately $219,000 in non-cash financing expense associated with the debt discount recognized in connection with the senior secured promissory notes as compared to $0 in 2011. Interest expense for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was approximately $243,000 as compared to approximately $91,000 in the prior year. The increase in reported interest expense of approximately $152,000 includes approximately $150,000 in coupon interest related to the $5M convertible promissory note, the convertible note with related party and the convertible debt related to the acquisition.Use of non-GAAP financial measuresManagement has disclosed adjusted financial measurements in this press announcement that present financial information that is not in accordance with GAAP. These measurements are not a substitute for GAAP measurements, although Company management uses these measurements as aids in monitoring the Company's on-going financial performance from quarter-to-quarter and year-to-year on a regular basis, and for benchmarking against other medical technology companies.
*Adjusted EBITDA is Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and share- based compensation. For a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable financial measure, see accompanying table to this release. Adjusted financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. Investors should consider adjusted measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
