Bacterin Second Quarter 2011 Revenues up 135% Over Prior Year, Driving First Positive EBITDA Quarter

BELGRADE, Mont., Aug. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Bacterin International Holdings, Inc. (NYSE Amex: BONE), a leader in the development of revolutionary bone graft material and antimicrobial coatings for medical applications, reported results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011.

Financial Highlights: Q2 2011 vs. Q2 2010

  • Revenues up 135% to record $7.5 million, marking seventh consecutive quarter of record revenues.
  • Net loss improved by $1.6 million to $405,000 or $(0.01) per share.
  • Reported first positive EBITDA quarter of $35,000, as compared to EBITDA loss of $930,000 in the second quarter of the prior year.

  • Q2 Operational Highlights

  • Launched third human acellular biological scaffold, hMatrix®, an acellular dermal scaffold, 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 second 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.
  • Raised approximately $3 million in private placement offering.
  • Joined Russell 3000, Russell Microcap, and Russell Global Indexes.

  • Q2 2011 Financial ResultsRevenues for the quarter increased 25% sequentially to a record $7.5 million from $6.0 million in the previous quarter, and up 135% compared to $3.2 million in the second quarter of 2010. For the first half of 2011, revenues totaled a record $13.5 million, up 128% versus $5.9 million in the same period in 2010. The increase in revenue is primarily attributable to the continued broader use of the company's biological products, antimicrobial coatings and device implants, as well as the company's implementation of a direct sales force driving this greater adoption. Also contributing to the revenue increase, during the second quarter of 2011, the company executed a purchase order agreement with a U.S. based distributor for the sale of Bacterin's biologics products internationally.

    Gross profit margin for the quarter was 76.8%, as compared to 83.5% in the previous quarter and 83.8% in the year-ago quarter. For the first half of 2011, gross profit margin was 79.8%, as compared to gross profit margin of 81.1% in the same year-ago period. The lower margins were primarily due to larger discount pricing for stocking purchase orders with a U.S. based distributor who will sell the company's products internationally, partially offset by increased manufacturing efficiencies.

    Operating expenses for the quarter totaled $6.0 million, as compared to $6.9 million in the previous quarter, and $4.0 million in the second quarter of 2010. For the first half of 2011, operating expenses totaled $13.0 million, as compared to total operating expenses of $7.1 million in the same year-ago period.

    Net loss was $405,000 or $(0.01) per basic share for the quarter. This compares to net income of $4.9 million or $0.13 per basic share in the previous quarter, which includes approximately $7.2 million from the decrease in non-cash warrant derivative liability. Net loss in the second quarter of 2010 was $2.1 million or $(0.07) per basic share.

    In the first half of 2011, net income was $4.5 million or $0.12 per basic share, including the decrease in non-cash warrant derivative liability of approximately $7.2 million, as compared to a net loss of $3.7 million or (0.13) per basic share in the same period of 2010, which includes an increase of approximately $95,000 in non-cash warrant derivative liability.

    EBITDA for the quarter totaled $35,000, compared to EBITDA loss of $1.2 million for the previous quarter, and EBITDA loss of $930,000 in the second quarter of 2010 (see the definition and an important discussion of EBITDA, a non-GAAP term, in "About the Presentation of EBITDA", below.)

    Cash and investments at June 30, 2011 totaled $1.4 million, as compared to $375,000 at March 31, 2011. The increase in cash during the quarter was primarily due to private placement of company securities. Subsequent to the end of second quarter, the company secured a $15 million credit facility.  The facility included an initial draw down of $7 million and resulted in net proceeds after the repayment of debt and transaction expenses of approximately $1.4 million.

    Management Commentary"Bacterin's record results for the second quarter marks our seventh consecutive quarter of record revenue growth, driving our first EBITDA positive quarter in our company's history," said Guy Cook, Bacterin's chairman and CEO. "These results reflect continued market penetration of our existing and latest medical devices and biologic products, as traction builds from our introduction to ROi's network of hospitals and medical practices."

    "We anticipate further revenue growth and profitability by leveraging our new higher margin direct sales model with new product lines like hMatrix, our third human acellular biological scaffold, as well as our recently acquired orthopedic implant products. We're in the process of filing an application with the FDA for enhancing these orthopedic implant products with our sustained release antimicrobial coating technology. We expect to be the only company in the space that can offer this combined technology, which we estimate represents a $600 million addressable market.

    "Bacterin raised approximately $3 million in private placement in Q2, and we recently established a $15 million credit facility to retire existing debt obligations, provide working capital, and allow us to be opportunistic in our M&A program. We believe our financial needs are met for the near-term to execute on our growth strategy, with these financing options available if or when needed.

    "To prepare for the anticipated growth in the second half of 2011, in June we initiated reorganization and expansion of our team. The process was completed in July, which also marked, as a result, the best production month in our company history. We are now well on track for increased operational capacity, expanding our product portfolio, market presence, and leveraging higher margin potential of our direct sales force."

    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.
