Viemed Healthcare Announces Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

LAFAYETTE, La., Aug. 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Viemed Healthcare, Inc. (the “Company” or “Viemed”) (NASDAQ:VMD and TSX:VMD.TO), a national leader in respiratory care and technology-enabled home medical equipment services, announced today that it has reported its financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022.

Operational highlights (all dollar amounts are USD):

  • Net revenues attributable to the Company's core business for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 were $33.1 million, a new Company record, and an increase of $6.9 million or 26% over core net revenues reported for the comparable quarter ended June 30, 2021. Including COVID-19 related services, total net revenues for the current quarter were $33.3 million.

  • Through June 30, 2022, the Company has repurchased and cancelled 1,350,567 common shares under the share repurchase program at a cost of $7.0 million, representing an average buyback price of $5.18 per share.

  • As a result of the Qualified Independent Contractor's reconsideration findings, recalculated overpayment requests have been issued by the Medicare Administrative Contractors, reducing the disputed exposure to $1.1 million. The Company has filed its appeals with the Administrative Law Judge, and intends to continue to defend itself vigorously through the remaining appeals processes, as necessary.

  • The Company grew its ventilator patient count to 8,837, a 9% increase over the June 30, 2021 ventilator patient count. This represents the highest sequential quarterly growth since the second quarter of 2019.

  • Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 totaled $6.5 million and Adjusted EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2022 totaled $13.7 million. A reconciliation of reported non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures can be found in the tables accompanying this press release.

  • The Company had a cash balance of $21.9 million at June 30, 2022 ($28.4 million at December 31, 2021) and an overall working capital balance of $24.0 million at June 30, 2022 ($29.5 million at December 31, 2021). Total long-term debt as of June 30, 2022 was $4.2 million ($4.3 million at December 31, 2021).

  • The Company expects to generate net revenues of approximately $34.5 million to $35.5 million during the third quarter of 2022.

“I am extremely proud of the robust growth across all lines of products and services, highlighting the synergies in our offerings,” said Casey Hoyt, Viemed's CEO. “We're seeing the release of pent-up demand in the health care system, re-enforcing the critical need for cost-effective home-based treatment solutions that keep patients out of hospital facilities.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release refers to “Adjusted EBITDA” which is a non-GAAP financial measure that does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. GAAP. The Company's presentation of this financial measure may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation, and stock-based compensation. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA provides helpful information with respect to the Company’s operating performance as viewed by management, including a view of the Company’s business that is not dependent on the impact of the Company’s capitalization structure and items that are not part of the Company’s day-to-day operations. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA (i) to compare the Company’s operating performance on a consistent basis, (ii) to calculate incentive compensation for the Company’s employees, (iii) for planning purposes, including the preparation of the Company’s internal annual operating budget, and (iv) to evaluate the performance and effectiveness of the Company’s operational strategies. Accordingly, management believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information in understanding and evaluating the Company’s operating performance in the same manner as management. The following table is a reconciliation of net income (loss), the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure, to Adjusted EBITDA, on a historical basis for the periods indicated:

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP. It is not a measurement of the Company’s financial performance under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to revenue or net income, as applicable, or any other performance measures derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other businesses. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s operating results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the impact of certain cash charges resulting from matters the Company considers not to be indicative of ongoing operations; and other companies in the Company’s industry may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.
