Management Commentary on Second Quarter Results Parker H. "Pete" Petit, Chairman and CEO, stated, "We are pleased with our revenue performance as we exceeded the $13.5 million upper range of our goal and achieved greater than a 175% increase over our 2012 second quarter revenue. This was our 7th straight quarter of meeting or exceeding our revenue forecast. We continued to produce strong gross profit margins, equaling our fourth quarter of 2012 and first quarter of 2013 record gross margins of 84%.  Management continues to focus on EBITDA and balancing EBITDA growth and the investments in our sales organization required to drive revenue. We are pleased with our diligence in this area and our success in recording our sixth consecutive quarter of positive Adjusted EBIDTA."

The Company's second quarter revenue growth was driven primarily by its EpiFix® wound care allografts as well as its micronized tissue for both wound care and sports medicine applications. "Most notable in our second quarter results is the positive growth in commercial accounts driven by the five Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) that have already approved coverage of EpiFix®. During the quarter, we received coverage from another of the MACs. That coverage by Wisconsin Physician Services (WPS) now brings the total MACs covering our EpiFix® wound care tissue grafts to six of the nine. The WPS coverage was effective July 1st, and we expect to see a significant impact from that during the third quarter. As we have stated previously, we have aggressively pursued this critical aspect of our reimbursement strategy, and we are very happy to see the ongoing results from that initiative," added Petit.

"We are embarking on the next phase of expansion of our direct sales force.  This phase will occur during the third quarter and will primarily focus on adding additional sales executives in our commercial wound care sales channel. The pace and location of our expansion of additional commercial wound care sales executives will be aligned with the approvals of the MACS," stated Bill Taylor, President and COO. "We also are expanding the sales staff in our government sales channel, as well as the surgical and orthopedic channel, as market opportunities dictate. At the end of the second quarter, we had 28 sales executives dedicated to our direct sales force focused on the government sector, 21 sales executives dedicated to our commercial wound care sales force and 7 sales executives in our sales force managing the surgical and orthopedic market sectors. This surgical and orthopedic sales force also manages our comprehensive network of independent sales distributors."

During the quarter, MiMedx continued its expansion of the resources focused on clinical research. In June, the randomized controlled trial (RCT) for the Company's EpiFix® wound care allograft was published electronically in the International Wound Journal.   The results of this clinical trial were compelling. The allografts were so clinically effective that extremely high statistical significance was reached quickly, and the study was concluded early. In July, the results of the crossover patients from this RCT were also published electronically in the Journal of Wound Care. The results for this treatment group were as compelling as the results for the original treatment group.

The Company's scientific study "Biological Properties of Dehydrated Human Amnion/Chorion Grafts: Implications for Chronic Wound Healing" has been accepted for publication in the International Wound Journal, with an electronic publication date expected early next month. In the near future, we will be submitting additional papers that further describe the effects of our PURION® processed tissue.  These studies involve determining the source of the stem cells, establishing the angiogenic properties of dehydrated human amnion/chorion membrane (dHACM), and gaining an in depth understanding of various mechanisms of action in wound healing," concluded Petit.

During the quarter, MiMedx was granted three new patents for the Company's proprietary AmnioFix® and EpiFix® technologies. "These three newly issued patents now give us a total of eight dHACM-based U.S. patents that have been issued to MiMedx®," commented Taylor.  "Allografts from our proprietary AmnioFix® and EpiFix® technologies are continuing to gain excellent reception among the physician community and the private and public sector insurance carriers. Accordingly, we continue to be extremely diligent about the protection of our AmnioFix® and EpiFix® intellectual property. Currently, our patent counsel is reviewing certain issues related to potential infringement of our intellectual property rights by competing products. We are committed to ensuring that our intellectual property rights are respected."

MiMedx began its three step physical relocation to the Company's new 80,000 square feet facility during June. "Our corporate headquarters functions have completed their respective moves. Our processing and operations will be moving in the second phase. We expect the first half of processing to move in August and the balance of processing to be completed in October. With such a major undertaking, we have contingency plans in place to prevent any disruptions that can be associated with a significant move of this nature," concluded Taylor.

Balance Sheet Total assets increased by $5.1 million to $40.3 million as of June 30, 2013, from $35.2 as of December 31, 2012. Cash on hand as of June 30, 2013, was $4.2 million, a decrease of $2.6 million, as compared to $6.8 million, as of December 31, 2012.  Accounts receivable increased to $11.8 million from $7.7 million as of year-end due to the higher sales volume and the ramp-up in commercial wound care sales. Inventory increased by $1.2 million in anticipation of increased demand in commercial wound care sales in subsequent quarters. Total liabilities decreased from $15.2 million as of December 31, 2012, to $7.4 million as of June 30, 2013. The decline in total liabilities was primarily the result of conversion of the senior secured promissory note and the final payout of the earn out related to the acquisition of Surgical Biologics. Stockholders' equity increased by $12.9 million to $32.9 million as of the end of the quarter. 

GAAP Earnings The Company recorded a Net Loss of $757,000, or $0.01 per diluted common share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, as compared to the Net Loss of $744,000, or $0.01 per diluted common share, recorded for the quarter ended June 30, 2012. The Net Loss includes a total of $1.9 Million in non-cash related expenses including $1.5 million of share-based compensation expense, $268,000 of amortization of intangibles and $139,000 in depreciation expense. Research and development expenses in the second quarter of 2013 increased by $421,000 over the second quarter of 2012 expenses due to the accelerated investment in clinical trials for reimbursement purposes. Selling, general and administrative expenses for the second quarter increased by $7.8 million over second quarter of 2012 expenses due to the build out of the Company's direct sales force for government accounts and commercial accounts, as well as the addition of key management and infrastructure-related resources to support the Company's growth.

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 from the Company's EpiFix® grafts comprises the Wound Care category. Its Surgical & Sports Medicine specialty is comprised of the Company's 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 the quarter, 54% of MiMedx sales volume was for Wound Care, 41% for Surgical and Sports Medicine and 5% for "Other."

Outlook for Third Quarter and Full Year 2013 The Company reaffirmed its previously communicated guidance for full year 2013, but increased the lower end of the range. 2013 full year revenue is forecasted to be in the range of $54 million to $60 million. The Company's goals for the third quarter of 2013 are for revenue to be in the range of $13.5 million to $16.0 million. The point within the range of revenue goals largely will be dependent on whether and how quickly the remaining MACs begin to reimburse for the Company's EpiFix® allografts.

Earnings Call MiMedx management will host a live broadcast of its second quarter results conference call on Wednesday, July 31, 2013, beginning at 10:30 a.m. eastern time.  A listen-only simulcast of the MiMedx Group conference call will be available online at the Company's website at www.mimedx.com or at www.earnings.com.  A 30-day online replay will be available approximately one hour following the conclusion of the live broadcast.  The replay can also be found on the Company's website at www.mimedx.com or at www.earnings.com.
