Bacterin Announces First Quarter 2012 Revenue of $7.8 Million, Up 29% Year-over-Year, on Gross Margins of 76%, and 34% Reduction in Operating Loss

BELGRADE, Mont., May 3, 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 first quarter ended March 31, 2012:

 2012 Highlights:

  • Revenue increased 29% to $7.8 million, compared to the $6.0 million for the first quarter of 2011.
  • Operating loss decreased by 34% to $1.3 million, compared to an operating loss of $1.9 million in the first quarter of 2011.
  • Gross Margin was 76%, above the previous guidance of 70 to 75%, and compared to 83.5% in the first quarter of 2011
  • Inventory increased to $11.4 million, sequentially compared to $9.4 million in fourth quarter of 2011 as a result of the increase in the receipt of donor inventory and increased production efficiency.
  • April 4, 2012, a peer review article in Orthopedic Research and Reviews determined OsteoSponge® exhibits ideal properties for bone regeneration, similar to those of autograft (graft of patient's own bone) with a distinct advantage over autograft, in that there is no risk of complications at the harvest site or donor pain postoperatively.
  • Recent studies conducted at the Hospital for Special Surgery have shown the OsteoSelect DBM putty proved equivalent to autologous bone graft in the posterolateral intertransverse rabbit model.
  • On April 23, 2012, the Company secured an accounts receivable credit facility with Midcap Financial LLC and Silicon Valley Bank for up to $5 million through January 1, 2015 based upon a predetermined formula for borrowings of up to 80% of Bacterin's eligible accounts receivable, as defined in the credit and security agreement.
  • Secured third national GPO contract, a three-year agreement with  a leading health care supply chain expertise and contracting company, to provide OsteoSponge®, OsteoSelect® DBM Putty, OsteoWrap®, OsteoLock®, BacFast®, hMatrix®, Sports Medicine Allografts, and traditional allografts to the GPO's nationwide network of hospitals and medical practices.
  • Hospital accounts in the 1Q of 2012 increased to 756 facilities, an increase of 45% over 519 facilities in Q1 2011.
  • Management Commentary"First quarter revenue was lower than anticipated, with 6 of our top 10 SKUs on backorder much of the first quarter.  We have substantially increased the receipt of donor inventory as well as production but don't believe it will have a positive impact on revenues until the third quarter of 2012," said Guy Cook, Chairman and CEO of Bacterin. "We are confident we have overcome the short term production issues, however, when our sales force is faced with limited access to products, it slows surgeon uptake when the product finally does become available. Typically, surgeons who currently use the product continue to reorder, but to convert new surgeons, each new surgeon needs to be approached, use the product in 1 or 2 cases, wait 60-90 days to see if they like the results, before using it in greater volume. When product is constrained and goes into back order, it delays the uptake, and the growth we've come to expect is pushed out by a few quarters. We are confident in our long term growth potential based upon our increased production and continuing demand for our products.
    We were able to sign up 140 new accounts by the end of the quarter, continuing to build our pipeline, but converting into meaningful recurring sales will take a little longer than we expected.

    "With respect to our hMatrix product, uptake in the wound care market was slower than expected due to reimbursement issues surrounding its use for the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers, which we believe will be corrected with the expected issuance of a Q code by January 1, 2013. To address this issue, we have shifted our manufacturing and marketing focus to address additional markets in sports medicine and reconstructive surgery that we expect will drive higher sales over the last 3 quarters of 2012.

    "A preclinical study recently completed at Hospital for Special Surgery on our OsteoSelect DBM putty is expected to be a significant driver of sales in the remainder of 2012 and 2013. OsteoSelect DBM putty proved equivalent to autologous bone graft, which is the current gold standard for spinal fusion, in the posterolateral intertransverse rabbit model.

    "We are also expecting data on our coatings in the second half of this year, as well as independent data on OsteoSponge SC."

    Q1 2012 Financial ResultsRevenue for the quarter was a $7.8 million compared to $9.1 million in the previous quarter and an increase of 29% compared to $6.0 million in the first quarter of 2011. Excluding the $1.4 million stocking order sale in the fourth quarter of 2011, revenues increased slightly from $7.7 million to $7.8 million on a sequential basis.  The year over year increase was largely the result of increased sales generated from the Company's direct sales force and independent distributors compared to the first quarter of 2011.

    Costs of tissue sales consist primarily of tissue and medical device manufacturing costs. Costs of sales increased by 88% or $871,366 to $1.86 million from $987,356 for the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase was largely the result of increased costs associated with our higher sales.  As a percentage of tissue sales, cost of tissue sales was 24% of revenues for the first quarter of 2012 compared to 16% in the comparable prior year period.

    Gross profit margin for the quarter was 76%, as compared to 44% in the previous quarter and 84% in the year-ago quarter. The fourth quarter 2011 gross margin figure was negatively impacted by approximately $1.2 million of nonrecurring charges as well as a lower gross margin on a $1.4 million stocking order sale due to a large volume pricing discount.

    Operating expenses for the quarter totaled $7.2 million, as compared to $6.7 million in the previous quarter, and $6.9 million in the first quarter of 2011. Operating loss for the quarter was $1.3 million, compared to $2.7 million in the previous quarter, and $1.9 million in the first quarter of 2011. Net loss was $1.0 million or $(0.03) per basic share for the quarter. This compares to a net loss of $4.4 million or $(0.11) per basic share in the previous quarter, and net income in first quarter of 2011 of $4.9 million or $0.13 per basic share.

    EBITDA for the quarter totaled a loss of $541,000, compared an EBITDA loss of $1.5 million for the previous quarter, and an EBITDA loss of $1.2 million for the first quarter of 2011.

    Cash and cash equivalents and net accounts receivable was $9.0 million at March 31, 2012, compared to a total of $7.8 million at December 31, 2012.

    "We have added a second production shift and, later in the year, will be expanding the number of clean rooms we devote to high demand products to a total of 13. Our plan is to optimize production to process less SKUs with a higher concentration of our high demand products, and expect processing capacity to double from current levels by the end of the year," said Mr. Cook. "In addition, we are also ramping up our donor inventory levels to eventually support $100 million of annual revenue. There is a lag time with processing throughput since it takes approximately 2-9 months to clear a donor due to related paperwork and laboratory testing results. We believe that product constraints are a short term issue we have resolved and that the future and long term opportunity for Bacterin products, in multi-billion dollar addressable markets, remain very strong.

    "Because our industry sells product on a consignment basis, we have poor visibility on reportable revenues until a few weeks after the close of a month which makes it extremely difficult to provide revenue guidance on a quarterly basis.  Based upon production challenges in the fourth quarter of 2011; feedback from the field with respect to second quarter sales; our decision not to pursue stocking order sales of slow moving inventory included in prior revenue guidance as well as delays in revenues generated from our hMatrix, we feel it is prudent to revise guidance from our previously stated expectation of 2012 revenues of $53 million -56 million down to $35 million – 40 million."

    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.
