(NASDAQ: SMED) (“Sharps” or the “Company”), a leading full-service national provider of comprehensive waste management solutions including medical, pharmaceutical and hazardous, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended March 31, 2021. Revenue in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 grew 164% to a record $27.5 million, compared to $10.4 million in the same prior year quarter, and a sequential increase of $10.5 million, or 62%, compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Customer billings increased $20.7 million, or 200%, to $31.0 million for the third quarter compared to $10.3 million for the same prior year quarter. Third quarter customer billings benefitted from increased immunization business of $19.5 million and increased route-based pickup services of $1.0 million. Third quarter revenue benefitted from increased immunization business of $16.1 million (net of revenue deferrals) and increased route-based pickup services of $1.0 million. The difference between the increases in billings and revenue related to immunization volumes of $19.5 million and $16.1 million, respectively, is the impact of revenue recognition related to the deferral of a portion of current period sales, partially offset by the recognition of revenue associated with product returned for treatment and destruction. Third quarter 2021 gross margin was 49% compared to 21% in the third quarter of fiscal 2020. Gross margin was positively impacted in the current quarter by the impact of revenue recognition where there was a higher proportion of immunization related mailbacks sold, with a higher up front gross margin, compared to immunization related mailbacks returned, with a lower gross margin upon return. On a normalized basis (excluding the impact of revenue recognition), gross margin would have been 41%. SG&A increased by about $600,000 or 16% to $4.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021, compared to the same prior year quarter. The increase in SG&A is related primarily to a $400,000 increase in management incentive compensation, including both stock and cash, a $100,000 increase in board member compensation and continued investments in sales and marketing. The Company reported operating income of $9.0 million in the third quarter of 2021, compared to an operating loss of $1.6 million in the third quarter of 2020. Sharps recorded net income of $6.9 million, or $0.41 per basic and $0.40 per diluted share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2021, as compared to net loss of $1.6 million, or ($0.10) per basic and diluted share in the third quarter of fiscal 2020. Sharps recorded EBITDA of $9.6 million, or 35% of revenue in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to an EBITDA loss of $1.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2020. (See Reconciliation of Net Income (Loss) to EBITDA in the supplemental table included at the end of this release). David P. Tusa, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sharps, stated, “As we anticipated, we experienced tremendous growth in the third quarter of fiscal 2021, as evidenced by record revenue and billings, significantly enhanced gross margin and greatly increased profitability. In March 2020 we launched several substantial infrastructure projects to support what we expected would be significantly increased demand, including: the tripling of capacity at our treatment facilities in Texas and Pennsylvania; an additional mailback related warehouse and distribution facility; and significant increases to our mailback inventory. These initiatives positioned us very well to provide uninterrupted service to our customers throughout the pandemic, particularly as COVID-19 vaccinations became widely available and we saw exponentially increased demand for our mailback solutions. It is important to note that we anticipate continued demand through the balance of this calendar year, as our customers prepare for several upcoming developments including: the continued roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccines, expected rollout of a COVID vaccine for children and adolescents; heightened seasonal flu-shot demand and potential booster shots to address efficacy of existing vaccines and to combat COVID variants. We also believe that some level of incremental vaccine related business should continue into 2022 and beyond as the country and the world move much more proactively in vaccine development, distribution and administration to combat COVID-19 and other potential viruses in the future. “In addition to the extraordinary growth in our mailback business, we achieved solid growth in our route-based business where billings increased 37% for the third quarter. Long before the pandemic, we recognized the growth opportunity represented by the strategic expansion of our route-based pick-up solution and during the quarter we announced the expansion of our direct route-based services to Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah. With this addition, our direct route-based footprint now includes 37 states and 80% of the U.S. population. We view our route-based business as a key growth driver with solid long-term recurring revenue potential and we look forward to continuing to pursue opportunities to grow our route-based presence and to further penetrate this $1 billion market opportunity.” Third Quarter Review Retail market billings grew 838% to $21.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 as compared to $2.3 million in the same prior year period. The increase in retail billings is primarily due to increased immunization related orders of $19.5 million. Professional market billings increased 19% to $4.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 as compared to $3.9 million in the third quarter of 2020. Home Health Care market billings increased 38% to $2.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to $1.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2020. Long-Term Care market billings increased 28% to $1.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to $0.8 million in the prior year period, related to an increased volume of COVID-19 related waste management as well as new customers. Pharmaceutical Manufacturer market billings decreased 34% to $0.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to $0.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2020, related to the timing of inventory builds for patient support programs. Billings for the inside and online sales channel increased 36% to $3.5 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021 as compared to $2.5 million in the same prior year period primarily due to increases in route-based pickup services to the Professional and Long-Term Care markets. First Nine Months Fiscal 2021 Results Sharps recorded revenue of $57.7 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2021, an increase of 50% compared to revenue of $38.6 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2020 and surpassing full year 2020 revenue of $51.1 million. Customer billings increased 59% to $62.9 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2021. Retail market billings increased 195% to $31.5 million as compared to $10.7 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2020, due primarily to an increase in billings for immunization related orders of $21.1 million, partially offset by a decrease in unused medications billings in the retail market of $0.2 million. Long-Term Care market billings increased 62% to $3.3 million as compared to $2.1 million in the prior year period related primarily to an increased volume of COVID-19 related waste management and ancillary supplies. Professional market billings increased 7% to $13.3 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2021 compared to $12.4 million in the same prior year period. During the first nine months of fiscal 2021, Pharmaceutical Manufacturer market billings increased 18% to $4.8 million as compared to $4.1 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2020. Gross margin increased to 39% for the first nine months of fiscal 2021 as compared to 30% in first nine months of fiscal 2020. SG&A expense increased 9% to $11.7 million, from $10.7 million, in the first nine months of fiscal 2021, related to a $400,000 increase in management incentive compensation, including both stock and cash, a $250,000 increase in board member compensation and $350,000 due to the Company’s continued investments in sales and marketing. The Company recorded operating income of $10.3 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2021 as compared to operating income of $0.3 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2020. Net income for the first nine months of fiscal 2021 was $7.8 million, or $0.47 per basic and $0.46 per diluted share compared to net income of $0.1 million or $0.01 per basic and diluted share for the first nine months of fiscal 2020. Sharps recorded EBITDA of $11.8 million, or 20% of revenue, in the first nine months of fiscal 2021, as compared to EBITDA of $1.5 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2020. (See Reconciliation of Net Income (Loss) to EBITDA in the supplemental table included at the end of this release). Financial Flexibility and a Strong Balance Sheet Cash was $11.2 million at March 31, 2021, compared to cash of $5.4 million at June 30, 2020. The Company had working capital of $20.7 million at March 31, 2021 compared to working capital of $11.1 million at June 30, 2020. Mr. Tusa concluded, “While the third quarter results were very strong, we believe that we are just getting started as we grow to become a much larger company penetrating multiple $1 billion markets, and as we further solidify our leadership position as a comprehensive provider of medical, pharmaceutical and hazardous waste solutions to the small and medium quantity generator markets. Our team has performed exceptionally well in successfully delivering our solutions to our customers in a very high growth environment and we are well prepared and planning for continued growth in all of our businesses.” Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2021 Webcast and Conference Call The Company will host a teleconference today beginning at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time, during which management will review the financial and operating results for the period and discuss Sharps’ corporate strategy and outlook.

Other companies may define EBITDA differently. EBITDA is presented because it is a financial measure that is frequently requested by third parties. However, EBITDA is not considered under generally accepted accounting principles as a primary measure of an entity’s financial results, and accordingly, EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to operating income (loss), net income (loss), or cash flows as determined under generally accepted accounting principles and as reported by the Company.
