-- Record quarterly revenue of $10.0 million, 25.0% growth vs. prior year driven by strong growth in home care and institutional markets --

NEW PRAGUE, Minn., November 09, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--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 September 30, 2021 ("Q1 FY 2022").

Q1 FY 2022 Highlights

  • Net revenue increased 25.0% to $10.0 million, from $8.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 ("Q1 FY 2021"), driven by 24.4% home care revenue growth and 61.5% institutional revenue growth.

  • Gross profit percentage increased to 77.0% of net revenue, from 76.8% of net revenue in Q1 FY 2021. The increase in gross profit percentage in Q1 FY 2022 was primarily due to favorable revenue mix, partially offset by increased raw material and shipping costs.

  • Operating income totaled $538,000, compared to $663,000 in Q1 FY 2021. The decrease in operating income was due to increased strategic investments in SG&A and costs related to shareholder activism, partially offset by stronger revenue performance.

  • Net income equaled $439,000, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared to $535,000, or $0.06 per diluted share, in Q1 FY 2021.

  • Cash totaled $11.0 million as of September 30, 2021.

Kathleen Skarvan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Electromed, commented, "In the first quarter of fiscal 2022, we achieved record quarterly net revenue of $10.0 million, with exceptional year-over-year growth in both our home care and institutional businesses. Our results were driven by strong execution across the Company and from the benefits of our key strategic growth investments, primarily in commercial team expansion and direct-to-consumer and digital marketing. In our home care business, our sales team continued to execute admirably through a hybrid virtual and face-to-face selling approach, maintaining a high level of productivity despite somewhat dampened clinician access after the onset of the COVID-19 Delta variant. On the institutional side of our business, we were pleased to see hospitals increasingly resume utilization of high frequency chest wall oscillation protocols during the quarter, after reducing utilization early in the COVID-19 pandemic."

Ms. Skarvan continued, "I believe that the strategic investments we are making in commercial expansion and digital marketing, product development, clinical research studies, and system infrastructure improvements position Electromed for enhanced long-term revenue growth, increased operating leverage, and durable shareholder value creation. In the remainder of fiscal 2022, we will focus on completing the final phases of development of our next generation airway clearance device, enrolling additional patients in our multi-center prospective clinical outcomes study, prudently building our sales and marketing team with an eye on maintaining high productivity, and diligently executing our direct-to-patient marketing program to increase awareness of SmartVest® as an effective device for the treatment of bronchiectasis."

Q1 FY 2022 Review

Net revenue in Q1 FY 2022 increased 25.0% to $10.0 million, from $8.0 million in Q1 FY 2021, primarily driven by growth in home care revenue and institutional revenue. Home care revenue expanded 24.4% to $9.3 million in Q1 FY 2022, from $7.5 million in Q1 FY 2021, primarily due to an increase in referrals and approvals. The increase in referrals was due to increased productivity from existing sales representatives, an increase in direct sales representatives, benefits of the waiver by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services on the non-commercial Medicare portion of our home care revenue, and the sales team adapting to a hybrid virtual and face-to-face selling model implemented to combat clinic access limitations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Field sales employees totaled 51 at the end of Q1 FY 2022, 41 of which were direct sales representatives, compared to 42 field sales employees and 35 direct sales representatives at the end of Q1 FY 2021. Sales force productivity achieved record performance during the quarter, with annualized home care revenue per direct sales representative at $955,000, above the Company’s targeted range of $750,000 to $850,000.

Institutional revenue increased 61.5% to $449,000 in Q1 FY 2022, from $278,000 in Q1 FY 2021, primarily due to increased capital purchases and stronger disposable volumes as hospitals resumed utilization of high frequency chest wall oscillation protocols. Distributor revenue decreased 12.4% to $156,000 in Q1 FY 2022, compared to $178,000 in Q1 FY 2021. International revenue increased 33.3% to $112,000 in Q1 FY 2022, from $84,000 in Q1 FY 2021.

Gross profit dollars in Q1 FY 2022 increased to $7.7 million, or 77.0% of net revenue, from $6.1 million, or 76.8% of net revenue, in Q1 FY 2021. The increase in gross profit dollars in Q1 FY 2022 was primarily due to stronger home care revenue. The increase in gross profit percentage in Q1 FY 2022 was primarily due to favorable revenue mix, partially offset by increased raw material and shipping costs.

Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses increased to $6.8 million in Q1 FY 2022, from $5.0 million in Q1 FY 2021, primarily due to increased payroll and compensation-related expenses, higher professional fees, and greater travel, meals and entertainment expenses. Higher payroll and compensation-related expenses were primarily due to a larger average number of employees in sales and marketing roles, increased commissions on higher home care revenue, merit-based increases and higher health insurance costs. Higher professional fees were primarily due to increased costs related to shareholder activism, which concluded with a cooperation agreement which became effective in September 2021. Higher travel, meals and entertainment expenses were primarily due to an increase in travel by sales representatives compared to the heavily COVID-19 driven travel restrictions in the prior-year period, and a national sales meeting that was held in the current fiscal quarter but was not held in the prior-year period due to COVID-19. In Q1 FY 2022, the Company also continued to invest in its systems infrastructure, including an ERP system, enhancements to the existing customer relationship management system and further optimization of the revenue cycle management system that was implemented in June 2021. As a percentage of revenue, SG&A expenses were 67.9% compared to 62.5% in Q1 FY 2021.

Research and development ("R&D") expenses in Q1 FY 2022 totaled $376,000, compared to $481,000 in Q1 FY 2021. The Company continued to invest in its next generation device during Q1 FY 2022 and expects to launch the product in the first half of its fiscal year ending June 30, 2023 following 510(k) clearance by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. As a percentage of revenue, R&D expenses were 3.8% compared to 6.0% in Q1 FY 2021.

Operating income in Q1 FY 2022 totaled $538,000, compared to $663,000 in Q1 FY 2021. The year-over-year decline in operating income for Q1 FY 2022 was primarily driven by increased strategic investments in SG&A and costs related to shareholder activism, partially offset by stronger revenue performance.

Net interest income was approximately $9,000 in both Q1 FY 2022 and Q1 FY 2021.

Income tax expense totaled $108,000 in Q1 FY 2022, compared to $137,000 in the same period of the prior year. During Q1 FY 2022, a discrete tax benefit of $20,000 was recognized as a result of the exercise of stock options.

Net income in Q1 FY 2022 was $439,000, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared to $535,000, or $0.06 per diluted share, in Q1 FY 2021.
