Endologix Reports Results for the Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2016

IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Endologix, Inc. (NASDAQ:ELGX), developer and marketer of innovative treatments for aortic disorders, today announced financial results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2016.

John McDermott, Endologix Chief Executive Officer, said, “In 2016, we successfully completed the TriVascular integration, advanced our strategic initiatives, and remain well positioned to execute on our long-term growth strategy. Looking forward, we have several opportunities to build value and enhance our position in the global aortic market. We anticipate CE Mark approval for Ovation Alto and Nellix ChEVAS in 2017, further expanding the number of AAA patients that can be treated with our innovative technologies. We also have several clinical milestones anticipated over the coming year, including presentation of the LUCY data and initiation of U.S. IDE clinical trials for Ovation Alto and Nellix ChEVAS. We also remain on track to submit the Nellix two-year IDE results and updated IFU to the FDA in the second quarter, which will be a key milestone towards Nellix FDA approval.”

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 combined financial results, which combine standalone Endologix and TriVascular results for the fourth quarter of 2015 and year ended December 31, 2015 in their entirety.

Global revenue in the fourth quarter of 2016 was $47.5 million, a 21% increase from $39.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2015 and a 3% decrease from combined revenue of $49.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. For the year ended December 31, 2016, global revenue was $192.9 million, a 26% increase from $153.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2015 and a 1% increase from combined revenue of $190.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2015.

U.S. revenue in the fourth quarter of 2016 was $33.7 million, a 27% increase as reported and a 1% decrease from combined U.S. revenue of $33.9 million in the fourth quarter 2015. International revenue was $13.8 million, an 8% increase as reported and a 9% decrease from combined international revenue of $15.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. On constant currency basis, fourth quarter 2016 international revenue increased 10% as reported and decreased 7% on a combined basis.

Gross profit was $29.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2016, which represents a gross margin of 62%, compared to a gross margin of 60% as reported and 61% on a combined basis in the fourth quarter of 2015. Gross profit was $123.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2016, representing a gross margin of 64%. This compares to a gross margin of 66% as reported and 65% on a combined basis for the year ended December 31, 2015. Fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2016 gross profit was negatively impacted by $0.6 million and $10.5 million related to purchase price accounting for inventory and intangible assets acquired by Endologix in the TriVascular merger. Excluding this impact, fourth quarter 2016 gross margin was 63% and year ended December 31, 2016 was 70%.

Total operating expenses were $51.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2016, compared to $45.5 million as reported and $66.5 million on a combined basis in the fourth quarter of 2015. Fourth quarter 2016 operating expenses included $2.4 million for expenses related to restructuring and contract termination and fourth quarter 2015 included $5.1 million for business acquisition expenses. Excluding these items, operating expenses in the fourth quarter of 2016 as compared to combined operating expenses in the fourth quarter of 2015 were lower by $12.2 million, or 20%, driven by synergy savings resulting from the TriVascular merger. For the year ending December 31, 2016, total research & development expenses were 16% lower and total selling, general and administrative expenses were 11% lower as compared to combined reported expenses for the year ending December 31, 2015.

Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $24.9 million, or $(0.30) per share, compared with net loss of $15.3 million, or $(0.22) per share, and combined net loss of $32.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2015. Endologix reported a negative Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP and defined below) for the fourth quarter of 2016 of $13.2 million, compared with a combined negative Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2015 of $25.7 million.

For the year ended December 31, 2016, Endologix reported a net loss of $154.7 million, or $(1.91) per share, compared with net loss of $50.4 million, or $(0.75) per share, and combined net loss of $111.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2015. Endologix reported a negative Adjusted EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2016 of $41.4 million, compared with a combined negative Adjusted EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2015 of $78.4 million.

Total cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and marketable securities were $49.1 million as of December 31, 2016, compared to $177.3 million as of December 31, 2015. During the fourth quarter of 2016, the Company used $1.0 million for merger and restructure related expenses.

About Endologix

Endologix, Inc. develops and manufactures minimally invasive treatments for aortic disorders. The Company's focus is endovascular stent grafts for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). AAA is a weakening of the wall of the aorta, the largest artery in the body, resulting in a balloon-like enlargement. Once AAA develops, it continues to enlarge and, if left untreated, becomes increasingly susceptible to rupture. The overall patient mortality rate for ruptured AAA is approximately 80%, making it a leading cause of death in the U.S. Additional information can be found on Endologix's website at www.endologix.com.

The Nellix® EndoVascular Aneurysm Sealing System has obtained CE Mark in the EU and is only approved as an investigational device in the United States.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Endologix's management believes that the non-GAAP measures of (1) "Adjusted Net Income (Loss)", (2) “Adjusted EBITDA" and (3) "Combined Financial Results" 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.
