Myomo Reports Third Quarter 2019 Results

November 12, 2019

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 12, 2019--

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 its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019.

Recent Highlights and Accomplishments:

• Revenue for the third quarter of 2019 of approximately $607,000 was roughly equal to the comparable period of 2018. Year-to-date revenue of approximately $2,317,000 increased by 49% over the comparable period of 2018. Third quarter revenue was affected by the timing of insurance payments for the Company’s increasing mix of direct billing patients in backlog, which caused a short-term lag in revenue recognition.

• Gross margin in the third quarter of 2019 was 68%, roughly equal to the comparable period a year ago. Third quarter gross margin was affected by a greater number of units shipped during the quarter with cost of revenue recorded, but no revenue, since the criteria for revenue recognition had not been met. Gross margin was 73% and 68% for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

• The Company’s reimbursement pipeline contained 528 MyoPro units as of September 30, 2019, up 17% from 453 units at the end of the second quarter of 2019, as the Company expanded its direct-to-patient marketing efforts. The net increase in the reimbursement pipeline was driven by a record 192 additions in the third quarter.

• Direct billing units now account for 225 units, or 43%, of the growing MyoPro pipeline, versus 32 units, or 15%, in the third quarter of 2018. The majority of the units added to the pipeline in the third quarter are direct billing candidates, which typically have higher revenue and gross margin per unit, but a longer time to receive revenue than devices sold via the O&P channel, historically the Company’s largest channel.

In addition to receiving the first orders from the expansion of Myomo’s international distribution network, the Company launched an International Technology Licensing program and is in discussions with a number of potential partners in several Asian countries.

• In October, the Company closed on a $3 million term loan. Funds from this non-dilutive financing will be used to help bring near term growth catalysts to fruition, including funding continued growth in the pipeline of qualified MyoPro candidates and the introduction of the new pediatric MyoPro.

“In the third quarter, Myomo’s growth metrics accelerated,” said Paul R. Gudonis, Chairman and CEO of Myomo. “During the quarter, we increased our overall reimbursement pipeline by 17%, driven by a record number of pipeline additions and we also generated a record number of insurance authorizations in the quarter, which helped drive a 22% increase in our backlog.”

Backlog, which represents insurance authorizations received, but not converted to revenue, increased to 61 units at the end of the third quarter, compared to 50 units at the end of the second quarter. Growth in backlog was driven by growth in insurance authorizations received during the quarter as well as timing differences in receiving payments from insurance companies, which resulted in a number of units in backlog from last quarter remaining in backlog at the end of the third quarter.

“The timing in receiving payments from insurance companies directly affected revenue in the third quarter,” continued Mr. Gudonis. “We’ve already undertaken a number of actions to accelerate the cycle time from lead generation to delivery and payment, and we remain confident that our growing authorization backlog will convert into revenue in the coming months. The debt financing that we recently closed will support us as we work to reach the milestones that we project achieving over the next 3-6 months. We expect to end 2019 with a strong outlook for 2020 as we continue to expand market penetration, awareness, the size of our pipeline and the offerings of our life-changing wearable robotic products.”

Total revenue in the third quarter of 2019 was approximately $607,000, roughly equal to the comparable period of 2018. Total revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was approximately $2,317,000, an increase of 49%, versus the comparable period of 2018. Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2019 was achieved with a higher average selling price, which offset a lower number of revenue units. Gross margin was 68% for both the third quarter ended September 30, 2019 and 2018. Gross margin in the third quarter was affected by cost of revenues recorded on an increased number of MyoPro units shipped for which no revenue was recognized, as the conditions required to recognize revenue were not met, partially offset by revenue recorded at 100% margin as cost of revenue was recorded in a prior period. Gross margin was 73% and 68% for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

Operating expenses were approximately $3,237,000, an increase of $113,000, or 4%, during the three months ended September 30, 2019, versus the comparable period of 2018. Operating expenses were approximately $9,910,000, an increase of $1,064,000, or 12%, during the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The increases in operating expenses primarily reflect higher compensation costs associated with the addition of personnel, marketing and product development efforts, and increased spending to secure reimbursement.

The Company’s net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 was approximately $2,788,000, or ($0.16) per share, compared with a net loss of approximately $2,650,000, or ($0.21) per share, for the corresponding period of 2018. Net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was approximately $7,952,000, or ($0.48) per share, compared with a net loss of approximately $7,625,000 or ($0.62) per share, for the corresponding period of 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA 1 for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019 was a loss of approximately $2,652,000, compared with a loss of approximately $2,538,000 for the corresponding period in 2018. Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was a loss of approximately $7,403,000, compared with a loss of approximately $7,102,000 for the corresponding period of 2018. A reconciliation of GAAP net loss to this non-GAAP financial measure has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release. An explanation of this measure is also included below under the heading “Non-GAAP Financial Measures”.

Guidance

“We’ve nearly achieved our full year 2018 revenue during the first nine months of 2019,” added Mr. Gudonis. “Based on our visibility into fourth quarter orders and revenue, we expect our revenue to resume its growth trajectory in the fourth quarter, resulting in significant revenue growth for all of 2019 compared to 2018.”

Liquidity

Cash on hand at September 30, 2019 was approximately $4,328,000. Pro forma for the term loan that closed in October, the Company’s cash balance at September 30, 2019 was approximately $7.1 million. Cash burn continued to decline and slowed to $2.3 million in the third quarter, compared to $2.6 million in the second quarter of 2019.
