Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and share based compensation (Adjusted EBITDA*) for the third quarter of 2011 were a loss of $934,000, a $489,000 improvement as compared to the second quarter loss of $1,423,000 and a $1,306,000 improvement compared to a loss of $2,240,000 in the third quarter of 2010.
Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, was $5,125,000, as compared to revenue of $545,000 recorded for the nine months ended September 30, 2010. The Company reported a net loss of $7,617,000, or $0.11 per diluted common share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, as compared to a net loss of $8,693,000, or $0.15 per diluted common share, for the same nine month period in 2010. Adjusted EBITDA* for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, were a loss of $4,675,000, as compared to a loss of $6,425,000 in the same nine month period of 2010. The Company ended the quarter with $637,000 in cash and has a commitment for a $1.5 million line of credit to fund working capital growth due to the planned revenue ramp.
Management CommentaryParker H. "Pete" Petit, Chairman and CEO stated, "We are pleased with the revenue growth for the quarter, especially in the areas of wound care and spine. However, one of our most significant accomplishments was the reduction in our Adjusted EBITDA loss in the third quarter by almost $500,000 as compared to the prior quarter and our achievement of breakeven Adjusted EBITDA in the month of September. With a combination of revenue growth and expense management, we are making significant strides towards achieving positive Adjusted EBITDA in the near term. We expect that the recent addition of key resources in our sales organization, our agreement with Affirmative Solutions for our VA initiatives, and several potential OEM agreements that are currently in various stages of negotiation will provide further support of our fourth quarter growth goals. These initiatives, along with our continued diligence in expense control, will expedite our Adjusted EBITDA/positive cash flow objectives."
The Company reported that it continues to see an increasing level of enthusiasm from practicing physicians within numerous medical disciplines regarding the potential clinical effectiveness of its AmnioFix® and EpiFix® offerings. During the third quarter, MiMedx launched its amniotic membrane injectable tissue, the Company's newest offering, and commenced shipments into distribution. The AmnioFix® Injectable is a novel configuration as it consists of micronized tissue in a dry powder form and is stored at room temperature. The physician adds sterile saline to the vial, mixes, and then injects the solution. Bill Taylor, President and COO of MiMedx said, "We have initiated a limited launch of the AmnioFix® Injectable to a group of physicians who, for quite some time, have expressed an interest in this configuration. The physicians using it in the limited launch are focusing their efforts on tendonitis applications. AmnioFix® Injectable may have numerous additional uses as well, and at this time, we are conducting additional evaluations to study such applications."
"We initiated numerous clinical studies and evaluations during the quarter on our AmnioFix® and EpiFix® allografts," continued Taylor. "We are engaged with physician leaders across the country in performing evaluations of these grafts in numerous clinical applications. These clinical evaluations are designed not only to provide additional clinical data for physicians, but also to support our reimbursement efforts with CMS and health plans. Based on the data and evidence we have collected so far, it appears that our AmnioFix® and EpiFix® products will have strong clinical results and be quite cost effective in their uses for numerous medical procedures."
Commenting on the current state of the market for new products, Petit said, "As with all new medical products or tissues, we are going through a several-month phase where health plans must be properly educated on the clinical and cost effectiveness of these tissues. While this is a laborious and detailed process that has to be carefully navigated, we are very fortunate that MiMedx executives have successful track records in accomplishing this type of activity numerous times with their previous companies. We are doing everything possible to expedite and optimize this process."
MiMedx continues to have ongoing discussions with a number of other industry organizations related to a private label or OEM relationship. "We have engaged in numerous discussions related to our amniotic membrane allografts and collagen fiber. During the quarter, we signed an OEM agreement for amniotic tissue with a company that manufactures spinal device implants. At present, we are having discussions with several companies, some of which are in the United States and others with international presence. We hope to be able to consummate additional OEM transactions during the fourth quarter," added Petit.
During the quarter, MiMedx submitted its initial request for Medicare reimbursement for EpiFix®. The Company reported that its data and information are currently undergoing a review, and MiMedx hopes to have some positive answers in the months ahead. "If we can obtain Medicare coding in certain facilities for our AmnioFix® and EpiFix®, it should quickly open up new sites that would be interested in our innovative allografts," commented Taylor.
The Company completed the final phase of the relocation of its headquarters and manufacturing facilities during the quarter. The Company now has the majority of its employees in one facility in Kennesaw, Georgia. We expect that we will receive the European CE Mark for the Company's CollaFix™ surgical mesh product during the fourth quarter. With our manufacturing consolidation behind us, we are well prepared to ramp up our production to meet the anticipated demand for CollaFix™ in Europe," concluded Taylor.
