Endologix Reports Results for the Second Quarter 2016

IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 02, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Endologix, Inc. (NASDAQ:ELGX), developer and marketer of innovative treatments for aortic disorders, today announced financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016.

John McDermott, Endologix Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We continue to deliver solid revenue growth above expectations and are very pleased with the TriVascular merger integration. Our revenue performance in the second quarter was driven by strong growth with Nellix in international markets, including the launch of our next generation system in Europe, and the full market release of AFX2 in the U.S. For Nellix, we reported several positive clinical data updates during the quarter, highlighted by the results from the EVAS FORWARD-IDE study. These data featured significantly lower rates of endoleaks and secondary interventions with Nellix, which further increases our confidence in its long-term potential to be a market leading device in the treatment of AAA.”

Mr. McDermott continued, “In July, we completed our 100-day PMA meeting with the FDA and remain confident in the approvability of Nellix. The FDA has requested additional information related to our PMA submission and also indicated that we might need to go to an Advisory Committee Panel given the novelty of EVAS compared to traditional EVAR. If we do not have to go to panel, we still believe it’s possible to receive PMA approval in the first quarter of 2017. If we do have to go to panel, we believe that it pushes out the potential PMA approval into the third quarter of 2017. We are working very collaboratively with the FDA to provide the required information and remain confident in the PMA approval of Nellix based upon the IDE clinical results, data from other international studies and our worldwide experience which now includes over 6,000 patients.”

Financial Results

As a result of its merger with TriVascular Technologies, Inc. completed on February 3, 2016, Endologix’s GAAP results (“as reported”) include TriVascular's results from that date forward. In addition to reporting GAAP results, Endologix is providing a comparison to pro-forma financial results. The pro-forma results combine standalone Endologix and TriVascular results for the second quarter of 2015 and six months ended June 30, 2015 in their entirety.

Global revenue in the second quarter of 2016 was $51.0 million, a 29% increase from $39.5 million in the second quarter of 2015 and a 4% increase from pro-forma revenue of $49.2 million in the second quarter of 2015. For the six months ended June 30, 2016, global revenue was $93.3 million, a 23% increase from $76.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015 and a 1% decrease from pro-forma revenue of $93.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015.

U.S. revenue in the second quarter of 2016 was $36.3 million, a 26% increase as reported and a 1% increase from pro-forma U.S. revenue of $35.8 million in the second quarter 2015. International revenue was $14.7 million, a 37% increase as reported and a 10% increase from pro-forma international revenue of $13.4 million in the second quarter of 2015. On constant currency basis, second quarter 2016 international revenue increased 37% as reported and increased 10% on a pro-forma basis.

Gross profit was $29.5 million in the second quarter of 2016, which represents a gross margin of 58%, compared to a gross margin of 61% as reported and 61% on a pro-forma basis in the second quarter of 2015. Gross profit was $57.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016, representing a gross margin of 62%. This compares to a gross margin of 67% as reported and 66% on a pro-forma basis for the six months ended June 30, 2015. Second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2016 gross profit was negatively impacted by $5.1 million and $7.9 million related to purchase price accounting for inventory and intangible assets acquired by Endologix in the TriVascular merger. Excluding this impact, second quarter 2016 gross margin was 68% and six months ended June 30, 2016 was 70%.

Total operating expenses were $52.7 million in the second quarter of 2016, compared to $36.3 million as reported and $55.1 million on a pro-forma basis in the second quarter of 2015. Second quarter 2016 operating expenses included $1.9 million for expenses related to the TriVascular merger. Excluding these items, operating expenses in the second quarter of 2016 as compared to pro-forma operating expenses in the second quarter of 2015 were lower by $4.3 million, or 8%, driven by synergy savings resulting from the TriVascular merger. For the six months ending June 30, 2016, total research & development expenses were 14% lower and total selling, general and administrative expenses were 7% lower as compared to pro-forma reported expenses for the six months ending June 30, 2015.

Net loss for the second quarter of 2016 was $66.8 million, or $(0.81) per share, compared with net loss of $13.0 million, or $(0.19) per share, and pro-forma net loss of $27.9 million for the second quarter of 2015. Endologix reported a negative Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP and defined below) for the second quarter of 2016 of $10.4 million, or $(0.13) per share, compared with a pro-forma negative Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2015 of $19.6 million.

For the six months ended June 30, 2016, Endologix reported a net loss of $114.5 million, or $(1.44) per share, compared with net loss of $24.2 million, or $(0.36) per share, and pro-forma net loss of $54.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015. Endologix reported a negative Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP and defined below) for the six months ended June 30, 2016 of $24.5 million, or $(0.31) per share, compared with a pro-forma negative Adjusted EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2015 of $37.6 million.

Due to its issuance of common shares at the closing of the TriVascular merger on February 3, 2016, the Company determined that it did not have adequate authorized and unissued common shares available to cover all contracts settleable in common shares. As a result, all or a portion of these contracts were reclassified from equity to liabilities. These liabilities were marked to market and $38.7 million was recorded as a fair value adjustment of derivative liabilities in the second quarter of 2016. However, going forward the Company will no longer need to mark these contracts to market as its shareholders approved an increase in the Company's authorized common shares sufficient to resolve the deficiency at the annual shareholder meeting on June 2, 2016.

Total cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were $72.9 million as of June 30, 2016, compared to $177.3 million as of December 31, 2015. During the second quarter of 2016, the Company used $3.6 million for merger related expenses. In late July, the Company secured a $50 million revolving 4 year credit facility with MidCap Financial, providing additional cash resources for the Company as it continues to execute on its growth and integration initiatives, including preparing for the U.S. launch of Nellix. The credit facility with MidCap Financial replaces the Company’s credit facility with Bank of America, which terminated upon the Company’s entry into the credit facility with MidCap Financial.

Financial Guidance

Endologix is raising its full year 2016 revenue guidance. Endologix anticipates 2016 revenue to be in the range of $197 million to $203 million, compared to $192 million to $202 million previously, representing growth of 3% to 7% compared to the pro-forma combined revenue results of Endologix and TriVascular in 2015. Endologix anticipates 2016 GAAP loss per share of $(1.80) to $(1.85) per share, compared to $(1.20) to $(1.30) per share previously, due to the $44.0 million recorded as a fair value adjustment of derivative liabilities mentioned above. Endologix anticipates 2016 adjusted loss per share (non-GAAP and defined below) of $(0.70) to $(0.75) per share. This guidance excludes purchase price accounting impacts related to the TriVascular merger.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Endologix's management believes that the non-GAAP measures of (1) "Adjusted Net Income (Loss)", (2) "Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Per Share”, (3) “Adjusted EBITDA", and (4) "Adjusted EBITDA Per Share" enhance an investor's overall understanding of Endologix's financial and operating performance and its future prospects by (i) being more reflective of core operating performance and (ii) being more comparable with financial results over various periods. Endologix's management uses these financial measures for strategic decision making, forecasting future financial results, and evaluating current period financial and operating performance. The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.
