    • Domestic surgical revenue increased 14.7%
    • International surgical revenue increased 11.8%
    • Domestic wound revenue declined 9.8%

  • Gross profit percentage on sales for the fiscal 2021 third quarter increased to 70.6%, compared with 70.3% in the fiscal 2020 third quarter.

  • Operating expenses decreased 11.6% during the fiscal 2021 third quarter as compared with the fiscal 2020 third quarter, reflecting improved cost management.

  • Net loss for the fiscal 2021 third quarter narrowed to $3.8 million, or a loss of $0.22 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $5.6 million, or a loss of $0.34 per diluted share, in the fiscal 2020 third quarter.

  • Fiscal 2021 third quarter Adjusted EBITDA improved to a loss of $1.0 million, compared to an Adjusted EBITDA loss of $3.8 million in the fiscal 2020 third quarter.

  • In March 2021, Misonix received a Health Canada license for the neXus® Ultrasonic Surgical System, allowing the Company to commercialize neXus, along with its various handpieces and disposable products, across Canada.

  • Following the successful launch of the neXus Ultrasonic Surgical System in select international markets and continued strong demand domestically, the Company now expects to place 200 neXus units by fiscal 2021 year-end, an increase from its previous guidance of 180 units.

Stavros Vizirgianakis, President and Chief Executive Officer of Misonix stated, “Our fiscal third quarter 2021 results mark a return to top-line growth for the first time since the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic last June and reflects growing demand for our proprietary ultrasonic products and procedural solutions as market conditions improve. Total fiscal third quarter revenue growth of 2.5% year-over-year, combined with the ongoing success of our team in strategically shifting and accelerating key priorities across our business resulted in a 2.8% year-over-year increase in gross profit with a strong gross margin of 70.6%.

“Accelerating demand for our neXus Ultrasonic Surgical System and record BoneScalpel and SonaStar product sales growth drove a 13.7% year-over-year increase in fiscal third quarter total surgical revenue, including 14.7% growth domestically and 11.8% growth internationally. Recall, we recorded 41% year-over-year domestic surgical revenue growth in the comparable fiscal third quarter of 2020 following the launch of neXus in the United States. As such, we are pleased with our ability to achieve mid-teens domestic surgical revenue growth in the current quarter despite the difficult comparison. Though our wound business remains challenged, our SonicOne product sales increased 26% quarter over quarter and we believe that our regenerative products are on an improved trajectory as treatment begins to return to wound care centers.

“During the fiscal third quarter, we launched neXus in select international markets including Canada and parts of the European Union, as well as a number of other select countries. The tremendous response we have received from global healthcare practitioners to-date is further affirmation of the efficiency and efficacy our ultrasonic technology delivers in treating procedures across spine surgery, neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery, laparoscopic surgery, and wound care. We also announced a new range of extremity fixation products to address the orthoplastics market, which complement our existing wound debridement and regenerative products portfolio. By creating a more encompassing offering, we not only significantly increase our average revenue per procedure, but also believe that we have further enhanced physicians’ ability to improve patient outcomes.

“In summary, we are encouraged by the early signs of a recovery that we are seeing across our business in both surgical and wound. The overall operating environment has continued to improve, though there are some clear differences by geography and procedural focus. Looking ahead, we expect to see an acceleration in our surgical business and a return to growth in our wound segment beginning in the second half of calendar 2021. 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 move deeper into the recovery phase. We are confident this approach will enable Misonix to deliver on goals for long-term profitable growth and enhanced shareholder value.”

Joe Dwyer, Chief Financial Officer, added, “We are encouraged by our ability to generate product revenue growth both on a year-over-year and quarterly sequential basis against the backdrop of a difficult, albeit improving, operating environment. Notably, the various initiatives we have implemented over the last year to streamline our cost structure enabled us to meaningfully reduce third quarter operating expenses by 11.6%, or $2.1 million, compared to the prior year period. Top line growth, combined with healthy gross margins of over 70% and lower operating expenses, resulted in a 73.3% year-over-year improvement in Adjusted EBITDA to a loss of $1.0 million in the fiscal 2021 third quarter, compared to a loss of $3.8 million in the prior year.

“We continued to deliver on our goal of lowering our cash burn and recently restructured our term debt to lower our borrowing rate and extend the maturity date and debt repayment schedule. With a strong balance sheet reflecting approximately $31 million in cash at March 31, 2021, we are confident that our liquidity position will support the continued investment in our business and our goals for growth. We continue to see an improvement in general market conditions and procedural volumes across most of our markets as the vaccine rollout progresses. Assuming this trend continues without any further disruptions, we expect to generate fiscal 2021 full year revenue of $72.8 million to $73.3 million.”

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.
