NEW PRAGUE, Minn., November 08, 2022--(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, 2022 ("Q1 FY 2023").
Q1 FY 2023 Financial Highlights
Net revenue was $10.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022, a 7% increase from $10.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021 ("Q1 FY 2022")
Homecare revenue increased to $9.6 million in the quarter, up 4% from $9.3 million in Q1 FY 2022.
Reported operating income of $44,000, compared to $538,000 in the same period a year ago, largely due to macroeconomic and supply chain factors as well as non-recurring expenses.
Net income was $81,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to $439,000, or $0.05 per diluted share, in Q1 FY 2022.
Repurchased $145,000 of common stock under the share repurchase program.
Cash as of September 30, 2022 was $6.0 million.
"I am proud of the Electromed team’s performance during the quarter, attaining 7% year-over-year revenue growth while managing a challenging macroeconomic environment," said Kathleen Skarvan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Electromed. "We have continued to deliver for our patients and shareholders, despite supply chain and inflationary headwinds that weighed on operating performance during the quarter. We will continue to execute on our commercial strategy, while managing our other expenses, to accelerate growth and anticipate positive operating cash flow over the course of this fiscal year."
"We remain encouraged by the success of our investments in the sales organization, achieving overall referral growth and referrals per direct sales representative compared to the prior fiscal quarter. We have submitted our next generation 510(k) to the FDA and we are ready to launch our limited market release in fiscal Q2 assuming notification of clearance is received by mid-December. We look forward to building on our momentum in the fiscal year ahead."
Fiscal First Quarter Results
Net revenues for Q1 FY 2023 increased 7% year over year to $10.7 million, from $10.0 million in Q1 FY 2022, driven by increased referrals and approvals as a result of an expanded sales force and reimbursement team. Field sales employees totaled 53 at the end of Q1 FY 2023, 44 of which were direct sales representatives, compared to 51 field sales employee and 41 direct sales representatives at the end of Q1 FY 2022. Sales force productivity remained within our expected range during the quarter, with annualized home care revenue per direct sales representative at $890,000, within the Company’s target range of $850,000 to $950,000.
Home care revenue increased by $348,000, or 4%, to $9.6 million for Q1 FY 2023 compared to Q1 FY 2022. Home care distributor revenue increased by $398,000, or 255%, for Q1 FY 2023 compared to Q1 FY 2022. The revenue increase was due to increased demand from one of our primary home care distribution partners. Institutional revenue decreased by $58,000, or 13%, for Q1 FY 2023 compared to Q1 FY 2022. International revenue decreased by $31,000, or 28%, for Q1 FY 2023 compared to Q1 FY 2022.
Gross profit increased to $8,331,000, or 78% of net revenues, for Q1 FY 2023, from $7,701,000, or 77% of net revenues, in Q1 FY 2022. The increase was primarily due to increased revenue and operating efficiencies related to shipping costs in the quarter.
Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses were $7,989,000 for Q1 FY 2023, representing an increase of $1,202,000 or 17.7%, compared to Q1 FY 2022. Approximately half of this increase included increased legal fees and annual sales meeting expenses that are not expected to occur in the remaining quarters. The remaining SG&A increase includes additional headcount in our sales and reimbursement departments representing our investments in growth.
Operating income totaled $44,000 in Q1 FY 2023, compared to $538,000 in Q1 FY 2022. The decrease in operating income was driven by supply chain factors, higher payroll and compensation expenses as well as legal fees of approximately $400,000 and travel, meals, and entertainment expenses during the quarter.
Net income for Q1 FY 2023 was $81,000 compared to $439,000 for the Q1 FY 2022.
As of September 30, 2022, Electromed had $6.0 million in cash, $21.0 million in accounts receivable, working capital of $27.3 million, and total shareholders’ equity of $34.1 million. The cash balance reflects a decrease of $2.2 million from June 30, 2022, primarily resulting from payment of annual incentive compensation and annual insurance premiums and the increased SG&A expenses described above, none of which are expected to occur in the remaining quarters.
