– Q3 2021 Total Revenue increased 25.3% from the same period in 2020 to $93.1 million –

GOLETA, Calif., November 04, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Inogen, Inc. (NASDAQ: INGN), a medical technology company offering innovative respiratory products for use in the homecare setting, today reported financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2021.

Third Quarter 2021 Highlights

  • Total revenue of $93.1 million, up 25.3% from the same period in 2020

  • Domestic direct-to-consumer revenue of $36.3 million, up 24.6% from the same period in 2020

  • Rental revenue of $12.1 million, up 61.3% from the same period in 2020

  • Signed agreement with Ashfield Healthcare, LLC (contract sales organization) to enhance the Company’s go-to-market capabilities

"I continue to be pleased with the sustained demand we are seeing for our market-leading portable oxygen concentrators, in spite of the challenging supply chain environment," said Inogen’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Nabil Shabshab. "We are working diligently to source critical components and help provide patients with access to our products while navigating higher costs and supply chain constraints associated with the semiconductor chip shortage."

Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Total revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2021 increased 25.3% to $93.1 million from $74.3 million in the same period in 2020, primarily driven by sustained demand, improved average selling prices, and the reduced impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and related public health emergency (PHE). However, due to supply chain constraints, the Company was unable to fulfill some orders, particularly in its domestic business-to-business channel, where sales decreased 1.1% to $22.8 million compared to $23.1 million in the third quarter of 2020.

International business-to-business sales in the third quarter of 2021 increased 49.7% (46.9% increase on a constant currency basis - see accompanying table for reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP measures) to $21.8 million compared to $14.6 million in the third quarter of 2020. The Company believes the increase was primarily driven by increased ambulation of patients in Europe and improving operational capacity of certain European respiratory assessment centers closer to normal levels, as improving COVID-19 vaccination rates enabled patients to return to more normalized activity levels and seek treatments.

Domestic direct-to-consumer sales increased 24.6% to $36.3 million in the third quarter of 2021 from $29.2 million in the third quarter of 2020. The Company believes the increase was primarily driven by relatively strong demand for portable oxygen concentrators (POCs) due to higher COVID-19 vaccination rates and the relaxation of closure orders related to the COVID-19 PHE leading to increased ambulation, as well as improved consumer confidence versus the comparative period in the prior year. Inside sales representative productivity was strong in the quarter despite lower average inside sales representative headcount, which was down approximately 8% from the comparative period in the prior year as attrition outpaced hiring. In addition, sales in this channel were impacted by lower battery accessory sales in the period due to supply chain constraints.

Rental revenue in the third quarter of 2021 increased 61.3% to $12.1 million from $7.5 million in the same period in 2020, primarily due to increased patients on service, higher billable patients as a percent of total patients on service, and higher Medicare reimbursement rates. As of September 30, 2021, the Company had approximately 40,400 patients on service, which was up 36.9% compared to September 30, 2020. The increase in patients on service was primarily driven by greater utilization of leads for rental opportunities and physician facing initiatives to increase prescriber awareness by the Company’s sales force as well as the relaxed Medicare criteria for oxygen therapy reimbursement due to the COVID-19 PHE.

Total gross margin was 51.2% in the third quarter of 2021 versus 44.4% in the comparative period in 2020. Sales revenue gross margin increased to 50.1% in the third quarter of 2021 versus 43.5% in the third quarter of 2020, primarily due to increased average selling prices. The increase was partially offset by higher cost of goods sold per unit in the quarter, primarily due to increased labor and overhead costs and material costs. The third quarter of 2021 included $0.9 million of higher material costs associated with open-market purchases of semiconductor chips used in the Company’s batteries and POCs. Rental revenue gross margin increased to 58.9% in the third quarter of 2021 versus 52.0% in the third quarter of 2020, primarily due to higher billable patients as a percent of total patients on service, higher Medicare reimbursement rates, and lower service expense per patient on service, partially offset by higher depreciation expense per patient on service.

Total operating expense increased to $41.3 million in the third quarter of 2021 versus $35.0 million in the third quarter of 2020, primarily due to increased personnel-related expense and increased media and advertising costs. These increases were partially offset by a $1.9 million non-cash decrease in the change in fair value of the New Aera earnout liability versus the comparative period.

Research and development expense increased to $3.8 million in the third quarter of 2021, compared to $3.5 million in the third quarter of 2020, primarily associated with increased personnel-related expense. Sales and marketing expense increased to $28.3 million in the third quarter of 2021 versus $22.9 million in the comparative period of 2020, primarily due to increased advertising costs, personnel-related expense, and other direct-to-consumer sales and marketing costs. Media and advertising costs were $9.4 million in the third quarter of 2021 compared to $7.7 million in the third quarter of 2020. General and administrative expense increased to $9.3 million in the third quarter of 2021 versus $8.6 million in the third quarter of 2020, primarily due to increased personnel-related expense and increased consulting and legal expense, partially offset by the non-cash change in fair value of the New Aera earnout liability versus the comparative period.

In the third quarter of 2021, the Company reported operating income of $6.4 million, Adjusted EBITDA of $12.2 million, net income of $12.2 million, and income per diluted common share of $0.53 (see accompanying table for reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP measures). The Company’s tax provision or benefit from income taxes for interim periods has been historically determined using an estimate of its annual effective tax rate, adjusted for discrete items, if any. The Company concluded that the annual effective tax rate method would not provide a reliable estimate for the period. Therefore, the Company utilized the discrete method, which treats the year-to-date period as if it were the annual period and determines the income tax expense or benefit on that basis. This resulted in recording a $6.2 million income tax benefit in the period.

As of September 30, 2021, the Company had cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities of $245.1 million with no debt outstanding. The Company paid significant additional costs in the third quarter of 2021 for the semiconductor chips purchased on the open market but not yet sold in finished products, which increased its prepaid expense and other current assets and inventory as of September 30, 2021 by $12.1 million and $1.1 million, respectively.

Financial Outlook for 2021

The Company continues to see ongoing uncertainty in the business caused by supply chain disruptions, the increased cost of critical components, as well as the continued and varying impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, the Company is still not providing detailed guidance for full-year 2021, including its revenue, revenue mix, net loss, and Adjusted EBITDA estimates for such periods.

Due to the expected supply chain constraints impacting semiconductor chip supply, the Company expects total revenue in the fourth quarter of 2021 to be similar to revenue in the fourth quarter of 2020.

The Company believes the semiconductor chip shortage experienced across many industries has and will likely continue to have a negative impact on its ability to manufacture products as these chips are used across all its POCs in both its batteries and printed circuit boards. The Company will continue to work with its manufacturing partners and explore other open-market avenues to procure necessary semiconductor chips, but it expects challenges in terms of supply and pricing inflation until supply meets demand and prices stabilize. If the Company is unable to obtain sufficient supply, it could be forced to further slowdown or temporarily halt production.

The Company also expects increased cost of goods sold per unit in the fourth quarter of 2021 due to cost inflation of materials and labor throughout the supply chain, primarily related to semiconductor chips price increases, which have exceeded the Company’s initial expectations. The Company expects $5.0 million to $7.0 million of higher material costs associated with open-market purchases of semiconductor chips used in its batteries and POCs for full-year 2021, which will vary based on total systems and batteries sold with semiconductor chips bought on the open market, including the $0.9 million incurred in the third quarter of 2021. Based on its assessment and industry feedback, the Company still believes that these supply shortages and increased costs may continue through the second quarter of 2022. In addition, the increased cost of goods sold per unit in the first and second quarters of 2022 is expected to be higher than the cost increase expected in the fourth quarter of 2021 based on the information known to date. As a result of the shortages, in the interim the Company expects to be supply constrained and unable to meet full customer demand for its products.

The Company has made and plans to continue to make investments in clinical research, research and development, and building the necessary infrastructure to support future revenue growth and predictability as well as margin expansion. As a result, operating expense for full-year 2021 is expected to increase compared to 2020. In addition, while the Company incurred minimal costs related to bonus and performance-based stock compensation expense in 2020, it expects such costs to increase in 2021 along with certain expenses related to the previously announced officer transitions and additions.

In total, the Company expects negative Adjusted EBITDA and operating and net losses in the fourth quarter of 2021 and operating and net losses for full-year 2021, reflecting the anticipated supply-constrained revenue decline, increased cost of goods sold per unit, and higher operating expense in the period compared to the first nine months of 2021.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Inogen has presented certain financial information in accordance with U.S. GAAP and also on a non-GAAP basis for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and September 30, 2020. Management believes that non-GAAP financial measures, taken in conjunction with U.S. GAAP financial measures, provide useful information for both management and investors by excluding certain non-cash and other expenses that are not indicative of Inogen's core operating results. Management uses non-GAAP measures to compare Inogen's performance relative to forecasts and strategic plans, to benchmark Inogen's performance externally against competitors, and for certain compensation decisions. Non-GAAP information is not prepared under a comprehensive set of accounting rules and should only be used to supplement an understanding of Inogen's operating results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Inogen encourages investors to carefully consider its results under U.S. GAAP, as well as its supplemental non-GAAP information and the reconciliation between these presentations, to more fully understand its business. Reconciliations between U.S. GAAP and non-GAAP results are presented in the accompanying tables of this release. For future periods, Inogen is unable to provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures without unreasonable effort as a result of the uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability of, the amounts of interest income, interest expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, provision for income taxes, and certain other infrequently occurring items, such as acquisition-related costs, that may be incurred in the future.
