Myomo Reports 2020 First Quarter Financial Results

21% Year-Over-Year Revenue Growth; 51% Sequential Increase in Authorization Backlog

Conference call begins at 4:30 p.m. Eastern time today

Myomo, Inc. (NYSE American: MYO) ("Myomo" or the "Company"), a wearable medical robotics company that offers increased functionality for those suffering from neurological disorders and upper-limb paralysis, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020.

Financial and operational highlights include the following (all comparisons are with the first quarter of 2019 unless otherwise noted):

  • Revenue was $1.0 million, up 21% compared with $0.8 million.
  • Revenue from direct billing was a record 62% of total revenue, compared with 26% of total revenue.
  • Gross margin increased 300 basis points to 68.4% from 65.4%.
  • The reimbursement pipeline contained more than 700 MyoPro units as of March 31, 2020, compared with 594 units as of December 31, 2019.
  • 72% of the MyoPro pipeline now represents direct billing units and more than 90% of the new candidates entering the pipeline during the first quarter are to be directly billed to insurance payers.
  • Backlog, which represents insurance authorizations received but not yet converted to revenue, was 80 units as of March 31, 2020, a 51% increase compared with 53 units as of December 31, 2019; approximately 30% of the December 31, 2019 backlog was converted into revenue in the first quarter.

Management Commentary

"I’m pleased we were able to deliver solid topline financial results and a growing backlog in this challenging environment, where MyoPro fittings have been delayed by efforts to contain the coronavirus," said Paul R. Gudonis, Myomo’s chairman and chief executive officer. "Our focus during the second quarter is to continue to grow our pipeline and authorizations backlog via telehealth and social media marketing, while reducing our spending as we wait for public health and travel restrictions to be eased so that we can resume fitting and delivering our MyoPro product to the growing number of patients in the queue."

Revenue for the first quarter of 2020 was $1.0 million, an increase of 21% compared with the first quarter of 2019. Revenue growth was achieved through a higher average selling price, reflecting a record amount of direct billing revenues, partially offset by a slightly lower number of revenue units in the first quarter of 2020, compared with the same period a year ago.

Gross margin for the first quarter of 2020 was 68%, compared with 65% for first quarter of 2019. The increase primarily reflects a higher average selling price.

Operating expenses for the first quarter of 2020 were $4.1 million, an increase of 27% over the first quarter of 2019. The increase primarily reflects higher compensation costs associated with the addition of sales, customer service and reimbursement personnel, as well as higher marketing expenses and professional service expenses.

Operating loss for the first quarter of 2020 increased to $3.4 million from $2.7 million in the first quarter of 2019. Net loss for the first quarter of 2020 was $3.8 million, compared with a net loss of $2.6 million, for the same period of 2019. Net loss in the first quarter of 2020 includes a charge of $0.2 million related to the partial extinguishment of the Company’s term loan.

Adjusted EBITDA1 for the first quarter of 2020 was a negative $3.3 million, compared with a negative $2.5 million for the first quarter of 2019. A reconciliation of GAAP net loss to this non-GAAP financial measure appears below.

Financial Outlook

"As a result of public health mandates and travel restrictions that are temporarily constraining our revenues, we expect second quarter revenue to be substantially below first quarter revenue," said Mr. Gudonis. "We have taken actions to reduce payroll and other costs by over $500,000 in the second quarter in order to minimize the cash burn, which nonetheless is expected to be higher in the quarter due to expected usage of cash for working capital. We are hopeful that operations will return to a more normal pace in the coming weeks. Until then, we continue to have success in building our authorization backlog, which currently stands at a record 100 MyoPro units that we intend to deliver and convert into revenue as rapidly as possible once conditions allow."

Liquidity

Cash and cash equivalents as of March 31, 2020 were $13.7 million. Cash burn was $2.4 million for the first quarter. The Company believes it has sufficient cash to meet its operating requirements for at least the next 12 months. However, if public health and travel restrictions continue into the third quarter of 2020, the Company may require additional capital to fund its operations beyond the second quarter of 2021.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Myomo has provided in this press release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP. This information includes Adjusted EBITDA. This non-GAAP financial measure is not in accordance with, or an alternative for, GAAP and may be different from similar non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA adjusted for stock-based compensation expense, the impact of the fair value revaluation of derivative liabilities and loss of extinguishment of debt. This non-GAAP financial measure is not meant to be considered superior to or a substitute for results of operations prepared in accordance with GAAP, and should be viewed in conjunction with GAAP financial measures. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

These forward-looking statements are only predictions and may differ materially from actual results due to a variety of factors.

  • our dependence upon external sources for the financing of our operations, to the extent that we do not achieve or maintain cash flow breakeven;
  • our ability to effectively execute our business plan and scale up our operations;
  • our expectations as to our development programs, and;
  • general market, economic, environmental and social factors that may affect the evaluation, fitting, delivery and sale of our products to patients.
