  • On October 12, 2019, the Company presented the latest advanced wound care research on Apligraf® and NuShield® at the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) Fall 2019 meeting, which was held from Oct. 12-14 in Las Vegas, NV.

“We delivered another quarter of significant year-over-year revenue growth across both our Advanced Wound Care and Surgical and Sports Medicine portfolios,” said Gary S. Gillheeney, Sr., President and Chief Executive Officer of Organogenesis. “We grew our customer base across both portfolios and leveraged PuraPly’s pass through advantage to gain new accounts, drive PuraPly adoption deeper into existing accounts and drive sales of our non-PuraPly products to existing PuraPly accounts. Strong execution also drove year-over-year growth of commercially available non-PuraPly products across our customer base. I am very pleased that despite amniotic capacity constraints, we successfully leveraged our diversified portfolio to deliver a solid quarter.”

Mr. Gillheeney, Sr. continued: “With continued execution against our PuraPly commercial strategy and improved amniotic capacity exiting Q3, we expect a strong finish to the year. We have updated our full-year 2019 revenue guidance and now expect to grow in a range of 31% to 34%. We remain committed to delivering on our mission to provide integrated healing solutions that substantially improve medical outcomes while lowering the overall cost of care.”

Third Quarter 2019 Results:

Net revenue for the third quarter of 2019 was $64.3 million, compared to $50.8 million for the third quarter of 2018, an increase of $13.5 million, or 27%. The increase in net revenue was driven by a $10.7 million increase in net revenue of Advanced Wound Care products and a $2.8 million increase in net revenue of Surgical & Sports Medicine products, representing growth of 25% and 39%, respectively, compared to the third quarter of 2018. The increase in Advanced Wound Care net revenue was primarily attributable to additional sales personnel, PuraPly regaining pass-through reimbursement status for the two-year period effective October 1, 2018 and the continued growth in adoption of our amniotic products despite the suspension of Affinity beginning in the first quarter of 2019. The increase in Surgical & Sports Medicine revenue was primarily due to the expansion of the sales force and penetration of existing and new customer accounts. Net revenue of PuraPly products for the third quarter of 2019 was $31.8 million, compared to $17.9 million for the third quarter of 2018, an increase of $13.9 million, or 78%. Net revenue of PuraPly products represented approximately 49% of net revenue in the third quarter of 2019, compared to 35% of net revenue in the third quarter of 2018.

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2019 was $45.1 million or 70% of net revenue, compared to $31.3 million, or 62% of net revenue for the third quarter of 2018, an increase of $13.8 million, or 44%. The improvement in gross profit and gross profit margin percentage resulted primarily from a more favorable product mix of revenue in the third quarter of 2019, PuraPly regaining pass-through reimbursement status, and volume-based manufacturing efficiencies.

Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2019 were $53.4 million, compared to $41.4 million for the third quarter of 2018, an increase of $12.0 million, or 29%. The increase in operating expenses in the third quarter of 2019 as compared to the third quarter of 2018 was driven primarily by higher selling, general and administrative expenses which increased to $49.5 million, compared to $38.6 million in the third quarter of 2018, an increase of $10.9 million, or 28%. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses is primarily due to additional headcount, predominantly in the direct sales force, increased sales commissions due to higher sales, and increased marketing and promotional expenses for the Company’s products. R&D expense was $3.9 million for the third quarter of 2019, compared to $2.8 million in the third quarter of 2018, an increase of $1.1 million, or 41%. The increase in R&D was driven by additional headcount and continued and new investments in clinical programs and our new product pipeline.

Operating loss for the third quarter of 2019 was $8.3 million, compared to an operating loss of $10.1 million for the third quarter of 2018, a decrease of $1.8 million, or 18%. Total other expenses, net, for the third quarter of 2019 were $2.4 million, compared to $3.0 million for the third quarter of 2018, a decrease of $0.6 million, or 19%. The decrease was driven primarily by a decrease in interest expense and a decrease in the change in the fair value of warrant liability.

Net loss for the third quarter of 2019 was $10.7 million, or $0.12 per share, compared to a net loss of $13.1 million, or $0.19 per share, for the third quarter of 2018, a decrease of $2.3 million, or 18%.

As of September 30, 2019, the Company had $23.0 million in cash and $100.8 million in debt obligations, of which $17.8 million were capital lease obligations, compared to $21.3 million in cash and $59.3 million in debt obligations, of which $17.7 million were capital lease obligations, as of December 31, 2018.

First Nine Months of 2019 Results:

Net revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was $186.3 million, compared to $129.9 million for the first nine months of 2018, an increase of $56.5 million, or 44%. The increase in net revenue was driven by a $47.7 million increase, or 43%, in net revenue of Advanced Wound Care products and a $8.8 million increase, or 44%, in net revenue of Surgical & Sports Medicine products compared to the prior year. Net revenue of PuraPly products for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 were $86.9 million, compared to $41.3 million for the first nine months of 2018, an increase of $45.6 million, or 111%. Net revenue of PuraPly products represented approximately 47% of net revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2019, compared to 32% for the first nine months of 2018.

Gross profit for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was $130.8 million or 70% of net revenue, compared to $78.6 million, or 60% of net revenue, for the first nine months of 2018, an increase of $52.2 million, or 66%. The largest contributors to the increase in gross margin from the year earlier period were increased sales volume due to the strength in our Advanced Wound Care products, the resulting higher margins realized as a result of manufacturing efficiencies, and PuraPly regaining pass-through reimbursement status for the 2-year period effective October 1, 2018.

Operating expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 were $158.5 million, compared to $125.6 million for the first nine months of 2018, an increase of $32.9 million, or 26%. The increase in operating expenses in 2019 as compared to 2018 was driven primarily by higher selling, general and administrative expenses which increased to $147.3 million, compared to $114.5 million in 2018, an increase of $32.8 million, or 29%. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses is primarily due to additional headcount, predominantly in our direct sales force; higher legal, consulting fees and other costs associated with the ongoing operations of our business; the warrant exchange offer transaction; and additional amortization associated with intangible assets acquired. Operating expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 were also impacted by higher R&D expenses which were $11.2 million, compared to $7.7 million for the first nine months of 2018, an increase of $3.5 million, or 46% due to additional personnel and new and ongoing clinical programs.

Operating loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was $27.7 million, compared to an operating loss of $47.1 million for the first nine months of 2018, a decrease of $19.4 million, or 41%. Total other expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 were $8.2 million, compared to $8.4 million for the first nine months of 2018, a decrease of $0.2 million, or 2%. The decrease in total other expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was driven primarily by a decrease in interest expense of $1.7 million, due to the repayment and conversion to equity of affiliate debt in connection with the Avista SPAC transaction, and a decrease in the change in fair value of warrant liability of $0.3 million due to the exercise of the underlying warrants, offset partially by a $1.9 million non-cash loss on the extinguishment of debt related to the write-off of unamortized debt discount from repayment of the master lease agreement upon entering into the New Credit Agreement as well as early payment penalties in March 2019.

Net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was $36.1 million, or $0.40 per share, compared to a net loss of $55.6 million, or $0.83 per share, for the first nine months of 2018.

Use of Non‑GAAP Measures

Our management uses financial measures that are not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP, in addition to financial measures in accordance with GAAP to evaluate our operating results. These non‑GAAP financial measures should be considered supplemental to, and not a substitute for, our reported financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our management uses Adjusted EBITDA principally as a measure of our operating performance and believes Adjusted EBITDA helps identify underlying trends in our business that could otherwise be masked by the effect of the items that we exclude. Accordingly, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results, enhancing the overall understanding of our past performance and future prospects, and allowing for greater transparency with respect to key financial metrics used by our management in its financial and operational decision‑making.

We define EBITDA as net income (loss) before depreciation and amortization, net interest expense and income taxes and we define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA, further adjusted for the impact of certain items that we do not consider indicative of our core operating performance. These items consist of non-cash equity compensation, mark to market adjustments on our warrant liabilities, change in our contingent asset and liabilities, write-off of deferred offering costs, Avista merger transaction costs and loss on the extinguishment of debt. We have presented Adjusted EBITDA in this press release because it is a key measure used by our management and Board of Directors to understand and evaluate our operating performance, generate future operating plans and make strategic decisions regarding the allocation of capital. In particular, we believe that the exclusion of certain items in calculating Adjusted EBITDA can produce a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our business.

Our Adjusted EBITDA is not prepared in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered in isolation of, or as an alternative to, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. There are a number of limitations related to the use of Adjusted EBITDA rather than net income (loss), which is the most directly comparable GAAP equivalent. Some of these limitations are:

  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes stock-based compensation expense, as stock-based compensation expense has recently been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, a significant recurring expense for our business and an important part of our compensation strategy;

  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes depreciation and amortization expense and, although these are non-cash expenses, the assets being depreciated may have to be replaced in the future;

  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes net interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest, which reduces cash available to us;

  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes the impact of the changes in the fair value of our warrant liability and our contingent consideration forfeiture asset;

  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes the write-off of deferred offering costs in connection with an abandoned public offering, as well as merger transaction costs, consisting primarily of legal and professional fees;

  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes the loss on extinguishment of debt, which is a non-cash loss related to the write-off of unamortized debt issuance costs upon repayment of affiliate and third-party debt, and related prepayment penalties;

  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes the advisory, legal, and professional fees incurred in connection with the warrant exchange transactions;

  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes income tax expense (benefit); and

  • Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, we consider, and you should consider, Adjusted EBITDA together with other operating and financial performance measures presented in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of Net loss, the most directly comparable measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, to Adjusted EBITDA, has been included below.
