Electromed, Inc. Announces Fiscal 2020 Second Quarter Financial Results
NEW PRAGUE, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 11, 2020--
Electromed, Inc. (“Electromed” or the “Company”) (NYSE American: ELMD), a leader in innovative airway clearance technologies, today announced financial results for the three months ended December 31, 2019 (“Q2 FY 2020”).
Q2 FY 2020 Highlights
Kathleen Skarvan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Electromed, commented, “We delivered another strong bottom-line performance in the second quarter, with net income of approximately $1.2 million, driven by year-over-year revenue growth of 6.7% and significant operating margin improvement to 18.3%. This quarter we produced $938,000 of annualized homecare revenue per direct field sales employee, exceeding our target productivity range of between $750,000 and $850,000. Our institutional business continued to perform well, with second quarter revenue up 22.8% year-over-year. Overall, we are very pleased with the execution of our organic growth strategy in the first half of fiscal 2020.”
Ms. Skarvan continued, “For the remainder of the fiscal year, we plan to increase investment on clinical studies, new product development and sales staff expansion to reach our previously disclosed target of 38 direct field sales employees. We believe these investments will help us achieve low double-digit revenue growth and operating margin improvement over the long term. An increasing number of physicians and patients are embracing the benefits of high frequency chest wall oscillation therapy with our SmartVest® Airway Clearance device, particularly in the large, underpenetrated bronchiectasis market, underpinning our enthusiasm for growth.”
Q2 FY 2020 Review
Net revenue increased 6.7% to $8.5 million, from $8.0 million in Q2 FY 2019, primarily driven by higher home care revenue. Home care revenue rose 4.6% to $7.7 million from $7.3 million in Q2 FY 2019, primarily due to a higher average allowable based on payer mix and improved productivity. Field sales employees totaled 40, of which 34 were direct sales, at the end of Q2 FY 2020, compared to 38 at the end of Q1 FY 2020, of which 32 were direct sales, and 52 at the end of Q2 FY 2019, of which 44 were direct sales. Institutional revenue increased 22.8% to $494,000 from $402,000 in Q2 FY 2019, primarily due to a higher average selling price per device compared to the prior fiscal year. In Q1 FY 2020 the Company began selling to home medical equipment distributors who in turn sell the SmartVest System in the U.S. home care market. Revenue from home medical equipment distributors totaled $131,000 during Q2 FY 2020.
Gross profit increased 10.1% to $6.7 million, or 78.1% of net revenue, from $6.1 million, or 75.7% of net revenue, in Q2 FY 2019. The increase in gross profit resulted primarily from an increase in home care revenue. The increase in gross profit as a percentage of net revenue was driven by a higher average allowable based on payer mix compared to the same period of the prior year.
Operating expenses, which include selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) as well as research and development (“R&D”) expenses, totaled $5.1 million, or 59.8% of net revenue, compared with $5.4 million, or 67.2% of net revenue, in Q2 FY 2019. SG&A expenses decreased by $185,000 to $5.0 million from $5.1 million in Q2 FY 2019, primarily reflecting lower payroll and compensation expenses due to a lower number of employees in sales and administrative roles. As a percentage of revenue, SG&A expenses improved to 58.1% compared to 64.3% in the same period in the prior year, reflecting fewer employees and open positions in sales and administrative roles. R&D expenses decreased to $143,000, from $238,000 in Q2 FY 2019.
Operating income totaled $1.6 million, compared to $0.7 million in Q2 FY 2019.
Net income before income taxes totaled $1.6 million compared to $0.7 million in Q2 FY 2019.
Net income equaled $1.2 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, compared to $0.4 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, in Q2 FY 2019. In Q2 FY 2020, income tax expense totaled $419,000, compared to $311,000 in the same period of the prior year.
Year-to-Date FY 2020 Summary
For the six months ended December 31, 2019, net revenue grew 10.2% to $16.8 million, from $15.3 million in the same period of fiscal 2019. Gross margins were 77.3%, compared to 75.9% in the prior fiscal year period, while net income was approximately $2.2 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, compared to approximately $0.5 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, in the first six months of fiscal 2019.
