Endologix Reports Third Quarter 2019 Financial Results

Third Quarter Highlights

  • Global revenue up 2.9% versus prior year
  • Sequential AFX system sales increase in the U.S.
  • Operating cash burn of $4.0M for the quarter

 

IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Endologix, Inc. (the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ELGX), a developer and marketer of innovative treatments for aortic disorders, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019.

“Our persistent focus on execution has resulted in improved performance across the business including AFX2 in the U.S., as evidenced by our third-quarter results,” commented John Onopchenko, Chief Executive Officer of Endologix, Inc. “We posted solid financial results, with the Company returning to annualized growth while effectively managing our expenses and meaningfully reducing our quarterly cash burn to less than $5 million. Our U.S. AFX volumes were up sequentially in the third quarter, and our global AFX volumes grew double digits year over year. We attribute these AFX results in the U.S. in large part to the value physicians place on the strength of our clinical evidence, which encompasses over 60,000 patients as illustrated in our recently released AFX Annual Clinical Update (2016-2019). Our operational progress to-date has steadily improved, and we are positioned to build off these results in the fourth quarter and into 2020.”

Financial Results

Global revenue in the third quarter of 2019 was $35.8 million, a 2.9% increase from $34.8 million in the third quarter of 2018. U.S. revenue in the third quarter of 2019 was $24.1 million, a 6.2% decrease from U.S. revenue of $25.7 million in the third quarter of 2018. International revenue was $11.7 million, a 28.7% increase from International revenue of $9.1 million in the third quarter of 2018. On a constant currency basis, third quarter 2019 International revenue increased 31.5% over the third quarter of 2018.

Gross profit was $23.1 million in the third quarter of 2019, representing a gross margin of 64.5%. This compares to a gross profit of $22.6 million, or a gross margin of 65.1%, in the third quarter of 2018 as lower sales volumes more than offset operational improvements.

Total operating expenses decreased 12.0% to $33.9 million in the third quarter of 2019, compared to $38.5 million in the third quarter of 2018. Operating expenses in the third quarter of 2018 included $2.9 million of restructuring costs; excluding these costs operating expenses decreased 4.9%.

Net loss for the third quarter of 2019 was $7.8 million, or $(0.40) per share, compared to a net loss of $10.1 million, or $(1.19) per share, a year ago. Adjusted Net Loss (non-GAAP, defined below) totaled $10.5 million, compared to an Adjusted Net Loss of $13.0 million for the third quarter of 2018. Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP, defined below) loss totaled $5.6 million for the third quarter of 2019, compared to Adjusted EBITDA loss of $9.3 million for the third quarter of 2018.

Total cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash were $47.8 million as of September 30, 2019.

Once an 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. For more information, visit 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. The Ovation Alto® System is only approved as an investigational device and is not currently approved in any market.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company’s management believes that the non-GAAP measures of (1) “Adjusted Net Income (Loss)” and (2) “Adjusted EBITDA” enhance an investor’s overall understanding of the Company’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. These measures, when used in conjunction with related financial measures calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), provide investors with an additional financial analytical framework that may be useful in assessing the Company’s financial condition and results of operations. The Company’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. Furthermore, these measures are not intended to be liquidity measures. Other companies, including other companies in the Company’s industry, may not use these measures or may calculate these measures differently than the Company does, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures. The Company intends to calculate these non-GAAP financial measures in a consistent manner from period to period. A reconciliation of each of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures has been provided under the heading “Non-GAAP Reconciliations” in the financial statement tables attached to this press release.

Adjusted Net Income (Loss) Definition:

(1) “Adjusted Net Income (Loss)” is a non-GAAP measure defined by the Company as net income (loss) under GAAP, excluding (to the extent relevant in a particular reporting period): (i) restructuring and other transition costs; (ii) contract termination, product withdrawal and business acquisition expenses; (iii) legal settlement costs; (iv) business development expenses, including licensing costs related to research and development activities; (v) inventory step-up amortization; (vi) interest expense; (vii) foreign currency loss (gain); (viii) fair value adjustment to Nellix® contingent consideration liability; (ix) fair value adjustment of derivative liabilities; and (x) loss on debt extinguishment.

In the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, this GAAP adjustment to net loss specifically represents: (i) the fair value adjustment to Nellix® contingent consideration liability; (ii) interest expense; (iii) foreign currency losses; (iv) restructuring and other transition costs; (v) fair value adjustment of derivative liabilities; and (vi) loss on extinguishment of debt.

Adjusted EBITDA Definition:

(2) “Adjusted EBITDA” is a non-GAAP measure defined by the Company as “Adjusted Net Income (Loss)” excluding income tax (benefit) expense, depreciation and amortization expense, and stock-based compensation expense.
