Management Commentary on Results

Parker H. "Pete" Petit, Chairman and CEO, said, "We are pleased with our 2013 performance and the value we created for our shareholders during the year. We had strong quarter-over-quarter growth and more than doubled our revenue over 2012. The fourth quarter of 2013 was our ninth consecutive quarter where we met or exceeded our revenue forecast. The fourth quarter was also our eighth consecutive quarter of positive Adjusted EBITDA*. Throughout the year, we continued to produce strong gross margins. We continue to invest heavily in additional clinical trials that are essential in growing our reimbursement coverage and increasing physician interest and education. We have a seasoned executive team that understands the importance of continually balancing quarter-over-quarter EBITDA growth with the necessary investments in sales, clinical studies and organization infrastructure that are essential in producing rapid but stable growth."

The Company's 2013 revenue growth was primarily driven by wound care sales. Wound care revenue for the year grew 190% over 2012 and Surgical & Sports Medicine revenue grew 79% over 2012. Bill Taylor, President and COO, stated, "In 2013, we expanded our sales force focused on the commercial sector of the wound care market. This expansion facilitated the tripling of our wound care revenue. During the first two months of 2014, we have undertaken another aggressive stage of expansion of our sales force, and we expect that this initiative will contribute to our continued period-over-period revenue growth. At the end of 2013, we had 76 sales professionals in our sales force. In the first two months of 2014, we added 34 sales professionals to our sales force, bringing the total to 110. The vast majority of the new additions have experience in advanced wound care, and we expect rapid growth in their respective territories. We expect to add another five to ten sales professionals to our sales force by the end of the first quarter of 2014."

Taylor added, "During the fourth quarter, we again ramped up our R&D expenses in support of our aggressive schedule of clinical and scientific studies.  There will be several studies published in the next few months, and they will assist with our 2014 revenue growth."

"We have sustained our rapid pace of facilitating the awarding of coverage from the Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs). We ended 2013 with reimbursement coverage by six of the eight MACs, and recently, we were awarded coverage from another MAC, bringing our current status of Medicare coverage for our EpiFix® allograft to seven of the eight MACs, with coverage in 49 of the 50 states.  The only remaining MAC needed to approve EpiFix coverage is First Coast Service Options (FCSO), whose jurisdiction is the State of Florida. In addition, we recently were awarded coverage from another of the large Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans that covers multiple states and millions of lives. In addition to these coverage awards, we are seeing the results from our numerous clinical studies and trials materialize into a growing number of coverage awards from many of the commercial health plans and state Medicaid programs," stated Petit. "Maintaining our initiatives focused on these reimbursement approvals is a major priority for MiMedx in 2014."

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of December 31, 2013, total assets increased by $49.5 million to $84.7 million. Cash on hand as of December 31, 2013, was $44.1 million, an increase of $37.3 million, as compared to $6.8 million as of December 31, 2012.  Cash flow from operating activities for the year was a negative $285,000, as compared to a negative $3.3 million in 2012. In the third quarter of 2013, the Company recorded positive quarterly cash flow from operations for the first time in its history.

Accounts receivable increased to $16.1 million as of December 31, 2013, from $7.7 million as of December 31, 2012. This was largely due to the higher sales volume and the buildup of the Company's commercial wound care sales. In preparation for increased demand in commercial wound care sales in early 2014, inventory increased by $858,000 to $3.9 million. Total liabilities decreased from $15.2 million as of December 31, 2012, to $11.1 million as of December 31, 2013. The decline in total liabilities was primarily the result of conversion of the senior secured promissory notes and the final payout of the earn-out related to the acquisition of Surgical Biologics. Stockholders' equity increased by $53.6 million to $73.6 million as of the end of 2013. 

GAAP Earnings

The Company recorded a Net Loss of $4.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2013, or $0.04 per diluted common share, as compared to a Net Loss of $7.7 million, or $0.09 per diluted common share, for the year ended December 31, 2012. During the fourth quarter, the Company chose to discontinue the HydroFix® product line. This action resulted in an impairment charge of approximately $368,000 related to licenses. This item is included in the Statement of Operations as of December 31, 2013. The Company recorded a Net Loss of $1.4 million, or $0.01 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2013, as compared to the Net Loss of $1.6 million, or $0.02 per diluted common share, recorded for the quarter ended December 31, 2012. The Net Loss includes a total of $2.7 million in non-cash related expenses, including $1.9 million in share-based compensation expense, $260,000 in amortization of intangibles, and $223,000 in depreciation expense. The Net Loss for the same period in 2012 included $2.0 million in non-cash related charges.

Full year 2013 Research and Development expenses were $4.8 million, or 8% of Net Sales, as compared to $2.9 million, or 11% of Net Sales, for the same period in 2012. For the fourth quarter of 2013, Research and Development expenses were $1.4 million or 8% of Net Sales, an increase of $249,000 over the fourth quarter of 2012 expenses, due to the accelerated investment in clinical trials for reimbursement purposes.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses for the year ended December 31, 2013, were $46.2 million, or 78% of Net Sales, as compared to $19.6 million, or 72% of Net Sales for the year ended December 31, 2012. SG&A expenses for the fourth quarter of 2013 were $14.3 million, or 79% of Net Sales, a $6.1 million increase over fourth quarter of 2012 expenses of $8.1 million.  Increases in SG&A were due to the continuation of the buildup of the Company's direct sales force in the government accounts and commercial accounts sales channels. The addition of key management and infrastructure-related resources necessary to support the Company's growth, including key resources in support of our reimbursement activities, also impacted the increase in SG&A expenses.

Use of non-GAAP financial measures

Management has disclosed adjusted financial measurements in this press announcement that present financial information that is not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). These measurements are not a substitute for GAAP measurements, although Company management uses these measurements as aids in monitoring the Company's on-going financial performance from quarter-to-quarter and year-to-year on a regular basis, and for benchmarking against other medical technology companies. Adjusted EBITDA* is earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, share-based compensation, non-cash impairment and earn-out liability charges. For a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable financial measure, see accompanying table to this release. Adjusted financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. Investors should consider adjusted measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Revenue Breakdown

The Company distinguishes its revenue breakdown among three primary regenerative medicine specialties, "Wound Care," "Surgical & Sports Medicine," and "Other," and reports its revenue in these categories.  Revenue for the Company's EpiFix® grafts comprises the Wound Care category. The Company's Surgical & Sports Medicine specialty is comprised of its injectable, orthopedic and surgical applications for its AmnioFix® grafts. The "Other" category of the MiMedx regenerative medicine specialties includes the Company's tissue revenue from its dental and ophthalmic applications and products from its HydroFix® technology. In 2013, Wound Care represented 55% of full year revenue, Surgical & Sports Medicine represented 40% of full year revenue and 5% of revenue was attributed to the "Other" revenue category.

The Company also provides a revenue breakdown in terms of customer type, distinguishing between government and commercial accounts. Government accounts include the Veterans Administration as well as the Department of Defense and Indian Health Services. Commercial sales include sales through distributors, OEM sales and direct sales to non-government accounts. For the year ended December 31, 2013, Government sales represented 57% and Commercial sales represented 43% of revenue.

Outlook for First Quarter and Full Year 2014

The Company reaffirmed its previously communicated guidance for full year 2014 in which revenue is forecasted to be in the range of $90 million to $110 million. As with 2013, the Company will update this forecast on a quarter-by-quarter basis. In 2013, the lower estimate of $50 million was raised by the Company each quarter until the original lower end estimate of $50 million reached $57.3 million. At this point, the Company estimates first quarter of 2014 revenue will be in the range of $18 million to $19.5 million.
