-- 11.1% Net Revenue Growth, Driven by a 16.1% Increase in Home Care Revenue --
Electromed, Inc. ("Electromed" or the "Company") (NYSE American: ELMD), a leader in innovative airway clearance technologies, today announced financial results for the three months ended December 31, 2020 ("Q2 FY 2021").
Q2 FY 2021 Highlights
Net revenue increased 11.1% to $9.5 million, compared to $8.5 million during the three months ended December 31, 2019 ("Q2 FY 2020"), driven by a 16.1% increase in home care revenue.
Gross profit percentage increased to 79.2% of net revenue, compared to 78.1% in Q2 FY 2020, primarily due to a higher mix of home care revenue and a favorable mix of Medicare within home care.
Net income equaled $1.2 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, compared to $1.2 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, in Q2 FY 2020, and reflects increased strategic investments in both R&D and SG&A.
Cash as of December 31, 2020 was $11.7 million, benefiting from $669,000 in operating cash flow in Q2 FY 2021.
Kathleen Skarvan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Electromed, commented, "In the second quarter we continued to adapt successfully to healthcare system disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our strong execution of a hybrid virtual and face-to-face selling approach combined with the ability for prescribers to more easily provide care via the provisional CMS waiver drove a 16.1% increase in home care revenue compared to the prior year period. The home care success more than offset the ongoing challenges to the other markets of our business negatively impacted by the pandemic, most clearly seen in the year over year decline in the institutional market. However, compared to the first quarter of our current fiscal year our business benefited from increased face-to-face interaction between patients and physicians and improved access to clinics for our sales staff."
Ms. Skarvan concluded, "We are encouraged by this quarter’s strong financial results and pleased with our sales team’s execution and ability to adapt to ever changing conditions in the market due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While we continue to operate within the constraints of a pandemic, we are cautiously optimistic about our prospects for continued revenue growth in the second half of fiscal 2021. Against this backdrop, we continue to fund strategic investments for our long-term growth, including research and development on our next generation device for HFCWO therapy and expanding our direct-to-patient marketing to increase awareness of bronchiectasis and SmartVest® as an effective treatment. During this pandemic, our priority continues to be the health, safety and well-being of our teammates, clinicians and patients, while executing on our strategy to gain greater share of the large, underpenetrated bronchiectasis market. We are well positioned to succeed given our strong balance sheet, excellent cash flow profile and differentiated SmartVest® Airway Clearance System."
Q2 FY 2021 Review
Net revenue in Q2 FY 2021 increased 11.1% to $9.5 million, from $8.5 million in Q2 FY 2020. Home care revenue increased 16.1% to $8.9 million in Q2 FY 2021 from $7.7 million in Q2 FY 2020. Field sales employees totaled 45, of which 38 were direct sales, at the end of Q2 FY 2021, compared to 40 at the end of Q2 FY 2020, of which 34 were direct sales. Institutional revenue decreased 37.4% to $309,000 from $494,000 in Q2 FY 2020, primarily due to a decrease in the volume of devices and disposable wraps sold due to COVID-19’s continued impact on hospital purchasing activity. Home care distributor revenue increased 13.7% to $149,000 from $131,000 in Q2 FY 2020. International revenue decreased 46.6% to $135,000 from $253,000 in Q2 FY 2020.
Gross profit in Q2 FY 2021 totaled $7.5 million, or 79.2% of net revenue, compared to $6.7 million, or 78.1% of net revenue, in Q2 FY 2020. The increase in gross profit percentage was primarily due to a higher mix of home care revenue and a favorable mix of Medicare within home care.
Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses in Q2 FY 2021 increased 9.5% to $5.4 million from $5.0 million in Q2 FY 2020. The increase in SG&A spending was primarily due to increased payroll and compensation-related expenses associated with higher incentive payments on stronger home care revenue and higher average sales and marketing headcount, as well as increased direct-to-consumer marketing expenses, partially offset by lower travel, meals and entertainment expenses. As a percentage of revenue, SG&A expenses were 57.2%, compared to 58.1% in Q2 FY 2020. Research and development expenses increased to $507,000 from $143,000 in Q2 FY 2020, primarily due to the development of a next generation platform. As a percentage of revenue, R&D expenses were 5.3% compared to 1.7% in Q2 FY 2020.
Net income before income taxes totaled $1.6 million in Q2 FY 2021, compared to $1.6 million in Q2 FY 2020, and reflects increased strategic investments in both R&D and SG&A.
Net income was $1.2 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, compared to $1.2 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, in Q2 FY 2020. In Q2 FY 2021, income tax expense totaled $389,000, compared to an income tax expense of $419,000 in the same period of the prior year.
Year-to-Date FY 2021 Summary
For the six months ended December 31, 2020, net revenue grew 3.9% to $17.5 million, from $16.8 million in the same period of fiscal 2020. The revenue increase was primarily due to growth in our home care market, partially offset by lower institutional revenue. Gross profit percentage was 78.1%, compared to 77.3% in the prior fiscal year period. The gross margin percentage increase was primarily due to a higher mix of home care revenue and a favorable mix of Medicare within home care. Net income was approximately $1.7 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, compared to approximately $2.2 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, in the first six months of fiscal 2020. The net income decrease was primarily due to increased strategic investments in R&D and SG&A.
The Company’s balance sheet at December 31, 2020 included cash of $11.7 million, accounts receivable of $15.4 million, no debt, working capital of $27.4 million, and shareholders’ equity of $32.3 million.
