Avanos Medical, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2020 Results

·14 mins read

ALPHARETTA, Ga. , Aug. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Avanos Medical, Inc. (NYSE: AVNS) today reported second quarter 2020 financial results.

(PRNewsfoto/Avanos Medical Inc.)
(PRNewsfoto/Avanos Medical Inc.)

"We're pleased we continue to meet the needs of patients during the pandemic, as we quickly acted to increase production capacity for our clinically-proven Respiratory Health products, while ensuring our employees' health and safety," stated Joe Woody , Avanos' chief executive officer.

"During the quarter we were excited to see elective procedure volume return above expectations, which bolstered our Pain Management franchises sales ahead of our forecast. While we are encouraged elective procedures resumed, we are cautious about the increasing number of COVID-19 cases and its potential impact to slow the recovery of elective procedures. Though we now anticipate the disruption will continue into 2021, the strategic steps taken to reduce costs and deliver improved cash flow position us for growth in a post COVID-19 environment."

Second Quarter 2020 Financial Highlights

  • Net sales totaled $164 million , a 5 percent decrease from the prior year.

  • Net loss for the quarter was $3 million , compared to net loss of $8 million in the prior year.

  • Adjusted net income totaled $6 million , compared to $14 million a year ago.

  • Diluted earnings per share were $(0.06) , compared to $(0.17) a year ago.

  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share were $0.13 , compared to $0.28 in the prior year.

Operational and Business Highlights

  • A recently published article in the Journal of Orthopedic Experience and Innovation highlights the efficacy of the company's non-narcotic ON-Q pain management therapy in treating total knee arthroplasty (TKA) patients. Drs. Wickline and Stevenson's research found that TKA patients who used ON-Q needed fewer opioids and in some instances no opioids - to effectively manage their post-operative pain.

  • The company launched a Digestive Health campaign Enteral Feeding is a Vital Lifeline that brings its three market-leading businesses MIC-KEY, CORPAK, and NeoMed under one family of brands. The Avanos family brand has one of the broadest portfolios in the enteral feeding industry with solutions for every stage and age of feeding.

  • In regards to the 2014 Bahamas Surgery Center class action lawsuit brought against Avanos related to MICROCOOL surgical gowns, the company was notified July 23, 2020 that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit reversed the judgment against the company and instructed the trial court to dismiss Avanos from the case altogether for lack of jurisdiction.

Second Quarter 2020 Operating Results

Net sales totaled $164 million , a 5 percent decrease compared to the prior year. The acquisitions of NeoMed and Summit contributed 6 percent of growth and organic volume was 11 percent lower compared to the prior year. Continued growth in Chronic Care was driven by an elevated global demand in Respiratory Health from Closed Suction Systems and Oral Care products due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This growth was offset by the expected lower volume in both Acute Pain and Interventional Pain, related to fewer elective procedures.

Gross margin was 53 percent, compared to 57 percent a year ago. Adjusted gross margin decreased to 56 percent, due to product mix and the elevated costs associated with the company's COVID-19 efforts, compared to 60 percent last year.

Operating loss was $2 million compared to a loss of $10 million a year ago. Lower post divestiture transition costs and litigation expenses drove the improvement, which was partially offset by lower sales. On an adjusted basis, operating profit totaled $13 million , compared to $20 million a year ago. The decline was due to lower sales and gross margin, partially offset by cost savings.

Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $19 million , compared to $23 million in the prior year.

First Six Months 2020 Operating Results

Net sales totaled $344 million , a 2 percent increase compared to a year ago. The acquisitions of NeoMed and Summit contributed 7 percent of growth. Continued demand in Respiratory Health was partially offset by lower volume in both Acute Pain and Interventional Pain, resulting in 4 percent lower organic volume. Performance was also impacted by 1 percent unfavorable product mix and price.

Gross margin was 55 percent, compared to 59 percent a year ago. Adjusted gross margin was 57 percent, due to product mix, compared to 61 percent last year.

Operating loss was $1 million compared to a loss of $34 million in the first half of 2019. Lower post divestiture transition and litigation expenses drove the improvement. On an adjusted basis, operating profit totaled $27 million , compared to $30 million in 2019. Performance was impacted by lower gross margin, which was partially offset by higher sales and cost savings.

In the first six months, adjusted EBITDA was $39 million compared to $37 million in 2019.

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet

Cash from operations less capital expenditures, or free cash flow, for the quarter was an outflow of $6 million compared to an outflow of $55 million a year ago. The company's cash balance was $185 million at the end of the quarter, compared to $205 million at year-end 2019.

Total debt at the end of the second quarter was $248 million , consisting of unsecured notes, unchanged compared to year-end 2019.

The company anticipates that its current cash position will provide sufficient liquidity to manage the business during this period of uncertainty. Also, it does not foresee drawing on its $250 million revolving credit facility to fund operating activities and expects to remain in compliance with its debt covenants. 

Update on Response to COVID-19

At this juncture, the pandemic's curve in the U.S. has continued to accelerate and the company has partnered with market experts, hospitals and consultants, to gain a more holistic view of the pandemic's impact on the industry, as it modeled scenarios for its latest forecast. Given the resurgence in the number of COVID-19 cases and its potential impact on the recovery of elective procedures, the company now anticipates this headwind will continue into 2021. Despite these near-term challenges, the company continued to take strategic steps to maximize production of its Respiratory Health products to meet customers' needs, reduce operating expenses and minimize cash outflow to ensure it remains in a strong financial position in a post COVID-19 environment.

Full Year 2020 Outlook

On May 4, 2020 , the company withdrew its previously announced full-year 2020 financial guidance, which was issued on February 25, 2020 , due to the uncertainties associated with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, the company cannot fully quantify the extent or duration of the impact of the pandemic on its financial results. However, it will continue to monitor the situation and anticipates providing further updates later in the year.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release and the accompanying tables include the following financial measures that have not been calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S., or GAAP, and are therefore referred to as non-GAAP financial measures:

  • Adjusted net income

  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share

  • Adjusted gross margin

  • Adjusted operating profit

  • Adjusted effective tax rate

  • Adjusted EBITDA

  • Free cash flow

These non-GAAP financial measures exclude the following items, as applicable, for the relevant time periods as indicated in the accompanying non-GAAP reconciliations to the comparable GAAP financial measures:

  • Expenses associated with restructuring activities, including IT-related charges.

  • Expenses associated with the divestiture of the S&IP business.

  • Expenses associated with the amortization of intangible assets associated with prior business acquisitions.

  • The positive or negative effect of changes in currency exchange rates during the year.

  • Expenses associated with certain litigation matters.

  • Expenses associated with altering operations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Certain acquisition and integration charges related to the acquisition of Game Ready, NeoMed, Summit Medical, and Endoclear LLC.

  • Benefit associated with regulatory tax reform and tax effects of the CARES Act.

The company provides these non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental information to its GAAP financial measures. Management and the company's Board of Directors use net sales on a constant currency basis, adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share, adjusted operating profit, adjusted EBITDA, and free cash flow to (a) evaluate the company's historical and prospective financial performance and its performance relative to its competitors, (b) allocate resources and (c) measure the operational performance of the company's business units and their managers. Management also believes that the use of an adjusted effective tax rate provides improved insight into the tax effects of our ongoing business operations.

Additionally, the Compensation Committee of the company's Board of Directors will use certain of the non-GAAP financial measures when setting and assessing achievement of incentive compensation goals. These goals are based, in part, on the company's net sales on a constant currency basis and adjusted EBITDA, which will be determined by excluding certain items that are used in calculating these non-GAAP financial measures.

Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the attached financial tables.
