BELGRADE, Mont., Nov. 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xtant™ Medical Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American:XTNT), a leader in the development of regenerative medicine products and medical devices, today reported its financial results for the quarter ended September 30th, 2017. The Company reported Third Quarter 2017 revenue of approximately $19.8 million and EBITDA of approximately $1.4 million for the period.
Consolidated third quarter 2017 revenue was approximately $19.8 million, compared to revenue of approximately $23.1 million for the same period of 2016. The decrease in revenue is due to the company's continued efforts to reduce underperforming sales channels and unprofitable distributor agreements resulting in a decrease of fixation revenue offset by an increase in biologics revenue.
"As we transition the business, our focus will be on profitable revenue growth", said Carl O' Connell, Chief Executive Officer of Xtant Medical. "We continue to rationalize sales that are not profitable to the business and removing expenses that are not yielding returns. Although our revenues were lower during the period, true operating leverage in the business is beginning to take shape. Once we have completed our restructuring efforts, we will be well positioned to grow revenues and profitability."
Consolidated gross profit for the third quarter of 2017 was approximately $11.4 million or 57.5% of revenues, compared to gross profit of approximately $16.0 million or 69.2% of revenues for the third quarter of 2016. The decrease in gross profit is due to a shift in product mix to biologics which has a lower margin than fixation products. In addition, inventory and surgical instruments reserves were increased $1.1 million in the third quarter of 2017 over the prior year based on current estimates of missing or damaged parts, primarily on consignment. Gross margin was also impacted by a one-time adjustment of $900,000 in inventory and surgical instrument reserves related to litigation with a distributor.
General and Administrative Expenses
In the third quarter of 2017, consolidated general and administrative expenses decreased to $3.3 million, compared to general and administrative expenses of $3.8 million for the same period during the prior year. As a percentage of revenues, general and administrative expenses were 16.8% during the period, compared to 16.3% for the same period of 2016. The reduction in expenses is primarily due to lower personnel expense and occupancy costs of $1.9 million as a result of restructuring efforts, offset by an increase of $1.1 million in other administrative costs such as legal fees, insurance, bad debts, and finance costs. In addition, the Company took a one time write-off of $400,000 related to litigation with a distributor.
Sales and Marketing Expenses
Consolidated third quarter 2017 sales and marketing expenses decreased to $8.9 million, compared to sales and marketing expenses of $11.2 million during the same period in 2016. For the quarter, sales and marketing as a percentage of revenues decreased to 45.0% compared to 48.7% in the third quarter of 2016. Changes made to the commission rate structure for sales distributors, a reduction of $1.6 million over the third quarter of 2016, coupled with a reduction in sales and marketing personnel of $1.0 million, offset by an increase in other net marketing expenses of $300,000, resulted in lower sales and marketing expense in the quarter.
One-time separation related expenses were $800,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2017. The reduction in personnel related to restructuring the Company for profitable operations, and is a key factor in the reduction of operating expenses for the third quarter and year to date.
Net Income / Loss
Third quarter 2017 consolidated net loss increased to ($8.5) million, compared to a net loss of ($4.9) million reported during the year-ago period. Third quarter 2017 consolidated loss per share was ($0.47), compared to a loss per share of ($0.40) in the third quarter of 2016.
The Company defines earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") as net income/loss from operations before depreciation, amortization, impairment charges, non-recurring expenses and non-cash stock-based compensation. Consolidated EBITDA for the third quarter of 2017 was approximately $1.4 million compared to $0.7 million for the same period during 2016 after the net income loss adjustment of $3.8 million in interest expense which increased 20.4%, $1.3 million in one-time total litigation reserves, $1.1 million increase in other expenses, representing restructuring costs consisting primarily of legal and professional fees, and the adjustment of $0.8 million of separation-related expenses related to the restructuring.
On November 20, 2017, the Company filed a Form 8-K disclosing a restatement of its financial statements included in the Form 10-Q for the quarters ended March 31, 2017 and June 30, 2017. This restatement resulted in a decline in net income in the quarter ended March 31, 2017 of $0.6 million related to accumulated depreciation of property and equipment.
Financial Liquidity and Outstanding Debt
At September 30, 2017, the Company had $2.1 million of cash and cash equivalents; $13.9 million of net accounts receivable and $24.8 million of inventory plus approximately $2.1 million of funds available to draw down on its delayed draw term loan.
The Company reduced its accounts payable from $11.1 million at December 31, 2016, to $7.7 million as of September 30, 2017. Accrued liabilities of $13.4 million at September 30th, rose from $9.0 million at December 31, 2016 primarily due to the accumulation of accrued interest on long-term debt, the payment of which has been delayed as noted in recent amendments of the Company’s long-term debt agreements.
The Company's long-term debt agreement includes a minimum revenue covenant requiring the Company to achieve minimum revenue benchmarks on a calendar quarter basis. A waiver was obtained from the lenders for not achieving the minimum revenue covenant for the third quarter ended September 30, 2017. The minimum revenue covenant is $27.5 million for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2017. The Company does not anticipate achieving this minimum revenue covenant and it is not assured the lenders will provide a waiver of this anticipated covenant violation at this future date. The Company has classified this debt as a current liability in its September 30, 2017 balance sheet.
