    • Flexitouch® revenue increased 33% year-over-year to $19.4 million, from $14.6 million.
    • Revenue from other products, consisting of revenue from sales of the Company’s Entré™ and ACTitouch® Systems, increased 47% year-over-year, to $3.2 million, from $2.2 million.
  • Operating income of $1.0 million, or 4.3% of total revenue, compared to $1.5 million, or 8.7% of total revenue, in the third quarter of 2015.
  • Net income of $0.5 million, compared to net income of $0.9 million in the third quarter of 2015.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $1.9 million, compared to $1.8 million in the third quarter of 2015.
  • On August 2, 2016, the Company closed an initial public offering (IPO) of its common stock that resulted in the sale of 4,120,000 shares at a public offering price of $10.00 per share.

  • On September 22, 2016, the Company announced that it had received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the Flexitouch System in treating lymphedema of the head and neck, a common consequence of head and neck cancer.

“Revenue growth of 35% in the third quarter continued the impressive performance that we delivered in the first half of 2016,” said Gerald R. Mattys, Chief Executive Officer. “Our top-line growth this year reflects the powerful combination of our field team expansion, growing awareness among clinicians and patients of our Flexitouch technology’s clinical benefits, and the increase in payer contracts that expands patient access to our products.”

Mr. Mattys continued: “Looking forward, we expect continued success as we focus on the core elements of our growth strategy: expanding our sales coverage to further penetrate the U.S. market, growing the portfolio of clinical and economic support for our innovative home care technologies, expanding reimbursement coverage, and introducing new products to address the unmet needs of the large and growing lymphedema and chronic venous insufficiency patient populations.”

Third Quarter 2016 Financial Results:

Total revenue increased $5.8 million, or 35%, year-over-year, to $22.6 million, compared to $16.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2015. The increase in revenue was driven by an increase of $4.8 million, or 33%, year-over-year, in sales of the Flexitouch System and an increase of $1.0 million, or 47%, year-over-year, in sales of the Entré and ACTitouch Systems. The increase in Flexitouch sales was primarily driven by the expansion of the Company’s sales force, increased physician and patient awareness of the lymphedema condition, and increased contractual coverage with national and regional insurance payers.

Gross profit increased $4.0 million, or 32%, year-over-year, to $16.4 million, compared to $12.4 million for the third quarter of 2015. Gross margin of 72% of sales in the third quarter of 2016 compared to 73% of sales for the third quarter of 2015. The change in gross margin rate year-over-year was driven primarily by payer and product mix effects.

Operating expenses increased $4.5 million, or 41%, year-over-year, to $15.4 million, compared to $10.9 million for the third quarter of 2015. The increase in total operating expenses in the third quarter was primarily driven by an increase of $2.8 million, or 45%, in sales and marketing expenses due to field sales team expansion and increased variable sales expense on higher revenues, and a $1.5 million, or 42%, increase in reimbursement, general and administrative expenses due to increased personnel, stock compensation expense and incremental public company costs.

Operating income decreased approximately $0.5 million to $1.0 million, compared to $1.5 million for the third quarter of 2015. Operating margin decreased to 4.3% of sales in the third quarter of 2016, compared to 8.7% of sales for the third quarter of 2015.

Net income decreased $0.4 million year-over-year, to $0.5 million, compared to $0.9 million for the third quarter of 2015. Net income attributable to common stockholders increased to $0.2 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to net income attributable to common stockholders of $0.1 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, last year. Net income attributable to common stockholders in the third quarter of 2016 reflected the accrual of convertible preferred dividends of $0.2 million, compared to $0.5 million last year, as well as the allocation of undistributed earnings to preferred stockholders of approximately $0.1 million, compared to $0.3 million for the third quarter of 2015. Weighted average shares used to compute diluted net income per share were 14.0 million and 4.8 million for the third quarter of 2016 and 2015, respectively.

Nine-Months 2016 Financial Results:

Total revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 increased $14.4 million, or 34%, year-over-year, to $56.1 million, compared to $41.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015. The increase in revenue was driven by an increase of approximately $11.9 million, or 33%, year-over-year, in sales of the Flexitouch System and an increase of approximately $2.5 million, or 44%, year-over-year, in sales of the Entré and ACTitouch Systems, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2015.

Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 increased approximately $0.4 million, to $0.5 million, compared to net income of $0.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015. Net loss attributable to common stockholders for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and September 30, 2015, was $0.7 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, and $1.3 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, respectively. Net loss attributable to common stockholders for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 includes the accrual of convertible preferred dividends of $1.2 million, compared to $1.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015. Weighted average shares used to compute diluted net loss per share were 6.3 million and 2.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

Cash Position at September 30, 2016

As of September 30, 2016, cash and cash equivalents were $39.3 million, and the Company had no debt outstanding, compared to $7.1 million of cash and cash equivalents and no debt outstanding as of December 31, 2015.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes the non-GAAP financial measure of Adjusted EBITDA, which differs from financial measures calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). Adjusted EBITDA represents net income less interest income, net, plus income tax expense, depreciation and amortization and stock-based compensation expense. Adjusted EBITDA is presented because the Company believes it is a useful indicator of its operating performance. Management uses the measure principally as a measure of the Company's operating performance and for planning purposes, including the preparation of the Company’s annual operating budget and financial projections. The Company believes Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors as supplemental information because it is frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in its industry. The Company believes Adjusted EBITDA is useful to its management and investors as a measure of comparative operating performance from period to period.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be considered as an alternative to, or superior to, net income or loss as a measure of financial performance or cash flows from operations as a measure of liquidity, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP and it should not be construed as an inference that the Company's future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. In addition, the measure is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for management’s discretionary use, as it does not reflect certain cash requirements such as tax payments, debt service requirements, capital expenditures and certain other cash costs that may recur in the future. Adjusted EBITDA contains certain other limitations, including the failure to reflect our cash expenditures, cash requirements for working capital needs and cash costs to replace assets being depreciated and amortized. In evaluating Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future the Company may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments in this presentation. The Company's presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed to imply that its future results will be unaffected by any such adjustments. Management compensates for these limitations by primarily relying on the Company’s GAAP results in addition to using Adjusted EBITDA on a supplemental basis. The Company's definition of this measure is not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to different methods of calculation.

The following table contains a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP measure.
