|Xtant Medical Announces First Quarter 2018 Financial Results|
BELGRADE, MT / ACCESSWIRE / May 8, 2018 / Xtant Medical Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American: XTNT), a leader in the development of regenerative medicine products and medical devices, today reported financial and operating results for the first quarter of 2018.
First Quarter 2018 Financial Highlights and Recent Accomplishments:
"This quarter's results reflect Xtant's continued commitment to transforming the Company for operational excellence," said Carl O'Connell, Xtant Medical's chief executive officer. "We have reduced costs in numerous areas as part of our continued focus to improve net income and adjusted EBITDA performance, and are very pleased with the corporate restructuring transactions announced during first quarter 2018."
First Quarter 2018 Financial Results
Revenue for the first quarter of 2018 was $17.9 million, down from $22.1 million compared to the same period of the prior year. The year over year decline was due to a shift in our sales channels, our efforts to move away from some reseller and higher-than-acceptable commission rate distributor relationships, and competitive factors affecting the sell through of our fixation products.
Gross margin for the first quarter of 2018 was 68.2%, up from 67.5% for the same period in 2017. This improvement was due to cost containment initiatives and improvements in end user pricing by modifying and exiting certain reseller relationships.
Operating expenses for the first quarter were 77.4% of net revenue, down $3.6 million compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2017 which was 79.1% of net revenue. The improvement was mostly attributable to execution of our channel strategy enhancement initiative as we move away from higher-commission relationships and unprofitable revenue. In addition, the Company successfully continued the successful execution of its cost saving program throughout the quarter.
General and administrative expenses decreased 26.7% to $3.0 million for the first quarter of 2018, compared to the same period of 2017. The improvement is primarily due to a reduction in payroll expense from consolidating manufacturing and distribution to a single location, and from efficiencies realized by streamlining administrative functions within the business.
Net loss for the quarter was $5.3 million compared to a loss of $5.8 million for the same period in the prior year. Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2018 was approximately $1.1 million compared to a loss of $0.1 million for the same period during 2017. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income/loss from operations before depreciation, amortization, non-recurring expenses and non-cash stock-based compensation. A calculation and reconciliation of net loss to non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA can be found in the attached financial tables.
Cash and cash equivalents at the end of the first quarter of 2018 totaled $6.2 million, compared to $2.9 million as of December 31, 2017. The Company also had $2.2 million in availability under its credit facility as of March 31, 2018.
In the first quarter of 2018, Xtant entered into a restructuring and exchange agreement with holders of Xtant's outstanding 6% convertible senior unsecured notes due 2021. Pursuant to that agreement, all outstanding convertible notes, constituting $71.9 million in outstanding principal amount, plus accrued and unpaid interest, were converted into 10.6 million shares of Xtant common stock during the first quarter of 2018. Most of the conversions occurred on February 14, 2018, after the receipt of stockholder approval of aspects of the restructuring transaction and the effectiveness of a 1-for-12 reverse stock split, which occurred at the close of business on February 13, 2018. On February 14, 2018, the Company issued 945,819 shares of common stock in a private placement at a price per share of $7.20 for cash proceeds of $6.8 million.
The Company also announced the resignation of its then current board of directors and election of six new directors to serve on Xtant's board of directors.
As the final step of the restructuring, the Company recently announced April 27, 2018 as the record date for a proposed rights offering of its shares of common stock. At the commencement of the rights offering, each holder of common stock will receive 0.0869816 non-transferable subscription rights for each share of common stock held on the record date. Each whole subscription right will entitle the holder to purchase one share of the Company's common stock for $7.20 in cash. In addition, holders as of the record date will have over-subscription rights, pursuant to which they may be able to purchase additional shares at the subscription price, to the extent that not all subscription rights are exercised, subject to certain limitations. The Company expects that subscription materials will be mailed on or about May 18, 2018 to holders of the Company's common stock as of the record date, and that the rights offering will close on or about June 18, 2018. The Company may extend the rights offering for additional periods of time in its sole discretion.
