Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2021 Highlights:

  • The novel coronavirus disease (“COVID-19”) continued to materially impact the industry and Misonix’s business in the first and second quarters of fiscal 2021 as elective procedures were delayed in order to treat patients affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and to allow health providers to comply with new safety measures.

  • Fiscal 2021 second quarter revenue of $18.3 million decreased 7.4%, compared to $19.7 million in the fiscal 2020 second quarter.

    • Domestic surgical revenue increased 19.8%
    • International revenue declined 23.1%
    • Domestic wound revenue declined 16.2%
  • Gross profit percentage on sales for the fiscal 2021 second quarter increased approximately 130 basis points to 71.2%, compared with 69.9% in the fiscal 2020 first quarter.

  • Operating expenses decreased 26.2% during the fiscal 2021 second quarter as compared with the fiscal 2020 second quarter, reflecting improved cost management, a net $1.2 million bad debt recovery in the fiscal 2021 second quarter, and $1.0 million contract asset write off in the prior year. Excluding the bad debt and contract asset activity, operating expenses were 15.0% lower during the second quarter compared to the prior year.
  • Net loss for the fiscal 2021 second quarter narrowed to $1.3 million, or a loss of $0.07 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $5.1 million, or a loss of $0.33 per diluted share, in the fiscal 2020 second quarter.

  • Fiscal 2021 second quarter Adjusted EBITDA improved to positive $1.6 million, compared to an Adjusted EBITDA loss of $1.9 million in the fiscal 2020 second quarter.

  • In December 2020, Misonix announced that the second largest U.S. commercial payer is now covering TheraSkin for the treatment of all lower extremity wounds, expanding TheraSkin’s coverage by approximately 32 million lives.

Stavros Vizirgianakis, President and Chief Executive Officer of Misonix stated, “While COVID-19 remains a challenge for the global healthcare industry, our fiscal 2021 second quarter results reflect the ongoing strong execution by our team in generating sequential growth in total product revenue since the peak of the pandemic in June, as well as significantly improved financial performance since that time. Notably, the meaningful measures we have taken to reduce costs and improve operating efficiencies over the past nine months, combined with our strong gross profit margin of approximately 70%, enabled us to achieve positive second fiscal quarter adjusted EBITDA.

“During the second fiscal quarter, the continued strength of neXus drove a year-over-year increase in domestic surgical revenue of nearly 20%, which is largely in-line with our historical growth levels, while domestic wound sales and international product sales remain more impacted by COVID-19. With the continued healthy adoption of neXus and a growing footprint from which to expand our business, we expect to return to pre-pandemic top-line growth when we return to a more normalized environment. As such, we remain focused on developing and refining our commercial infrastructure, including acquiring additional sales resources, to ensure that we are in the best position to drive market share gains and further adoption of our surgical and regenerative products as we emerge from the pandemic.

“As we enter the second half of fiscal 2021, we are excited about the opportunities to grow organically by leveraging our proprietary ultrasonic technology and expanding the procedures we participate in, as well as the potential for additional distribution partnerships to further our offering across both surgical and wound. We are actively managing the business to best position Misonix for the future and remain confident in our ability to achieve our goals for long-term profitable growth and enhanced shareholder value.”

Joe Dwyer, Chief Financial Officer, added, “We are pleased with the healthy sequential growth in product revenue from $17.7 million in our fiscal first quarter to $18.3 million in the current quarter against the backdrop of a difficult operating environment. Notably, the actions we have taken since the beginning of the pandemic to streamline our cost structure enabled us to meaningfully lower cash used in operations to $1.4 million in the current quarter, and report positive Adjusted EBITDA of $1.6 million in the fiscal 2021 second quarter, compared to an Adjusted EBITDA loss of $1.9 million in the prior year. In addition, we continue to lower our cash burn, and have restructured our term debt to lower our borrowing rate, extend the maturity date, and extend the debt repayment schedule.

“With a strong balance sheet reflecting over $32 million in cash at December 31, 2020, we believe Misonix is well positioned to withstand the near-term challenges related to COVID-19 and remain confident in the long-term prospects of our business. Although it is difficult to predict what the impact of COVID-19 will be in the coming months, we are optimistic that procedural volumes will grow as we move further into the year, following broad vaccine distribution.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The Company has presented the following non-GAAP financial measures in this press release: EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. The Company defines EBITDA as the net income (loss) as reported under GAAP, plus depreciation and amortization expense, interest expense and income tax expense (benefit). The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA plus non-cash stock compensation expense and M&A transaction fees. Historically, the Company excluded bad debt expense from its calculation of Adjusted EBITDA by adding bad debt expense to EBITDA. Beginning with the quarter ended September 30, 2020, the Company will no longer exclude bad debt expense from the calculation Adjusted EBITDA, and prior comparative periods will be adjusted accordingly.

The Company has also provided below pro-forma revenue, which is also a non-GAAP financial measurement. The Company acquired the operations of Solsys Medical at the end of its first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2019. The Company has presented pro forma revenue to show revenue on a comparable basis as if Solsys had been acquired at the beginning of the comparative periods presented.

We present these non-GAAP measures because we believe these measures are useful indicators of our operating performance. Our management uses these non-GAAP measures principally as a measure of our operating performance and believes that these measures are useful to investors because they are frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate the operating performance of companies in our industry. We also believe that these measures are useful to our management and investors as a measure of comparative operating performance from period to period.
