Q2 FY 2023 Highlights
Net revenue was $11.7 million for the three months ended December 31, 2022, a quarterly record and a 15% increase from $10.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021 ("Q2 FY 2022")

Next generation SmartVest® Clearway® Airway Clearance System received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
"I am very pleased to report record quarterly revenues for the second fiscal quarter of 2023 and 15% revenue growth from the prior year period as the Electromed team continues to perform at a high level while executing our multi-pronged strategic growth initiatives. Our performance resulted in improvement in operating margin and cashflow this quarter which is equally as impressive as the topline growth given the inflationary macroeconomic environment.," said Kathleen Skarvan, President and Chief Executive Officer.
"One of our key growth initiatives is the introduction of our fifth generation SmartVest Clearway, which is now on the market in a limited release. Patient feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and we are excited to introduce Clearway to more patients and physicians over the next few months. We continued to expand the commercial team, which is operating at a high level of productivity, and we believe the building blocks are in place as our company works to drive our SmartVest Airway Clearance therapy to wider adoption in the airway clearance market."
Fiscal Second Quarter Results
Net revenue for Q2 FY 2023 increased by 14.5% year over year to $11,729,000, compared to $10,248,000 in the same period in the prior year. The increase over the prior year period was driven by increased referrals and approvals as a result of an expanded sales force and reimbursement team. Field sales employees totaled 57 as of December 31, 2022, 48 of which were direct sales representatives, compared to 48 field sales employees and 39 direct sales representatives as of December 31, 2021. Sales force productivity remained within our expected range during the quarter, with annualized home care revenue per direct sales representative at $927,000, within Electromed’s target range of $850,000 to $950,000.
Home care revenue increased by $1,328,000, or 14.1%, for Q2 FY 2023 compared to the same period in the prior year. Institutional revenue increased by $256,000, or 76.9%, for Q2 FY 2023 compared to the same period in the prior year. Home care distributor revenue decreased by $51,000, or 13.2%, for Q2 FY 2023 compared to the same period in the prior year. International revenue decreased by $52,000, or 41.9%, for Q2 FY 2023 compared to the same period in the prior year.
Gross profit increased to $8,682,000, or 74.0% of net revenues for Q2 FY 2023, from $7,880,000, or 76.9% of net revenues, in the same period in the prior year. The decrease in gross profit as a percentage of net revenues compared to the same period in the prior year is primarily due to increased material costs and higher shipping expenses to expedite inventory purchases.
Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses were $7,254,000 for Q2 FY 2023, representing an increase of $779,000, or 12.0% compared to the same period in the prior year. The increase was primarily due to additional headcount in our sales and reimbursement departments representing our investments in growth.
Operating income for Q2 FY 2023 was $1,274,000, compared to $1,076,000 for the same period in the prior year. The increase in operating income in the three months ended December 31, 2022 was primarily due to revenue growth partially offset by increased operating expenses reflecting expansion of headcount and other growth initiatives.
Net income for Q2 FY 2023 was $977,000, compared to $838,000 for the same period in the prior year. The increase in net income in the three months ended December 31, 2022 was primarily due to revenue growth.
As of December 31, 2022, Electromed had $6.9 million in cash, $21.6 million in accounts receivable, working capital of $28.2 million, and total shareholders’ equity of $35.4 million.
