November 8, 2021

Third Quarter Revenue Increased 7% Year-Over-Year; First Nine Months Revenue Increased 14% Year-over-Year

MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tactile Systems Technology, Inc. (“Tactile Medical”) (Nasdaq: TCMD), a medical technology company focused on developing medical devices for the treatment of underserved chronic diseases at home, today reported financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2021.

Third Quarter 2021 Summary:

  • Total revenue increased 7% year-over-year to $52.5 million, compared to $49.1 million in third quarter 2020.
    • Total revenue in third quarter 2021 included $0.9 million of revenue from the recently acquired AffloVest respiratory therapy business.
  • Operating loss of $1.4 million, compared to operating income of $1.8 million in third quarter 2020.
    • Non-GAAP operating income of $1.0 million, compared to non-GAAP operating income of $2.6 million in third quarter of 2020.
  • Net loss of $3.4 million, compared to net income of $2.4 million in third quarter 2020.
    • Non-GAAP net loss of $1.6 million, compared to non-GAAP net income of $3.0 million in third quarter of 2020.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $4.1 million, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $6.2 million in third quarter 2020.

Third Quarter 2021 Highlights:

  • On September 8, 2021, the Company announced it acquired the assets of the AffloVest respiratory therapy business from International Biophysics Corporation, a privately-held company.
  • On September 30, 2021, the Company announced the enrollment of the first patient at Vanderbilt University in a multi-center randomized, controlled trial evaluating the effectiveness of its Flexitouch® Plus system for the treatment of head and neck lymphedema.
  • National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®) Guidelines for Survivorship, a longtime advocate for the early identification and treatment of cancer-related lymphedema, published an update adding pneumatic compression devices to the list of therapies for home management.

“Third quarter operating and financial results were affected by the prolonged recovery from COVID-19 and increased impacts from the Delta variant,” said Dan Reuvers, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tactile Medical. “While we expected progressive improvements in the back half of the year, the Delta variant led to a resurgence in fewer patient visits, absenteeism within practices, and limited our access to patients and clinicians. The challenging labor market also impacted our ability to recruit and retain quality candidates for our sales team.”

Mr. Reuvers continued, “We are revising our 2021 financial outlook to account for our third quarter results, as well as our expectation for continued COVID-related headwinds and salesforce staffing challenges, which we expect to persist through the remainder of the year, offset in part by an anticipated $5.0 to $5.5 million revenue contribution from our recent acquisition of AffloVest. We believe that the headwinds are temporary and that we remain well-positioned longer-term. Importantly, we continue to see evidence of increasing awareness and consensus within the medical community of the prevalence of lymphedema and the importance of effective treatment. The integration of AffloVest is also progressing well and, combined with our lymphedema therapies, expands our addressable U.S. market opportunity to over $10 billion per year. Given our large addressable market, clinically proven products and commitment to advancing the at-home treatment of patients with underserved chronic conditions, we expect to deliver strong growth and improving profitability as conditions improve.”

Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Total revenue in the third quarter of 2021 increased $3.4 million, or 7%, to $52.5 million, compared to $49.1 million in the third quarter of 2020. The increase in total revenue was attributable to an increase of $1.1 million, or 3%, in sales and rentals of the Flexitouch system, an increase of $1.4 million, or 23%, in sales and rentals of the Entre system and $0.9 million in sales of the recently acquired AffloVest product line in the quarter ended September 30, 2021. Third quarter 2021 revenue was negatively impacted by the prolonged recovery from COVID-19, including the resurgence due to the Delta variant during the period, which resulted in restricted access to clinics and hospitals and disrupted the recovery in patient visits versus the pre-COVID environment. In addition, the challenging labor market impacted our ability to recruit and retain quality candidates for our direct sales force.

Gross profit in the third quarter of 2021 increased $2.0 million, or 6%, to $37.0 million, compared to $35.0 million in the third quarter of 2020. Gross margin was 70% of revenue, compared to 71% of revenue in the third quarter of 2020. Non-GAAP gross margin was 72% of revenue, compared to 71% of revenue in the third quarter of 2020.

Operating expenses in the third quarter of 2021 increased approximately $5.2 million, or 16%, to $38.3 million, compared to $33.2 million in the third quarter of 2020. The increase in operating expenses was primarily driven by an increase in sales and marketing expense of $2.7 million, or 14%, to $22.2 million, primarily due to increases in personnel-related compensation expense and travel-related expenses. Reimbursement, general and administrative expenses increased $2.1 million, or 17%, to $14.7 million, primarily due to a combined $1.0 million increase in occupancy costs, depreciation expense and legal fees, as well as a $0.8 million increase in acquisition-related fees and a $0.2 million increase in non-cash intangible amortization in connection with the purchase of AffloVest. Research and development expenses increased $0.3 million, or 28%, to $1.4 million, primarily due to an increase in professional services as new product projects advanced.

Operating loss in the third quarter of 2021 was $1.4 million, compared to operating income of $1.8 million in the third quarter of 2020. Non-GAAP operating income in the third quarter of 2021 was $1.0 million, compared to Non-GAAP operating income of $2.6 million in the third quarter of 2020.

Income tax expense in the third quarter of 2021 was $1.9 million, compared to an income tax benefit of $0.8 million in the third quarter of 2020. The increase in income tax expense was primarily due to changes in our effective tax rate, which was attributable to a change in projected taxable income as compared to the same period last year.

Net loss in the third quarter of 2021 was $3.4 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, compared to net income of $2.4 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2020. Non-GAAP net loss in the third quarter of 2021 was $1.6 million, compared to Non-GAAP net income of $3.0 million in the third quarter of 2020.

Weighted average shares used to compute diluted net income/loss per share were 19.8 million and 19.7 million in the third quarters of 2021 and 2020, respectively.

Adjusted EBITDA was $4.1 million in the third quarter of 2021, compared to $6.2 million in the third quarter of 2020.

First Nine Months 2021 Financial Results:

Total revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, increased $18.4 million, or 14%, to $146.3 million, compared to $127.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The increase in revenue was driven by an increase of $13.9 million, or 12%, in sales and rentals of the Flexitouch system, an increase of $3.7 million, or 24%, in sales and rentals of the Entre system and $0.9 million in sales of the recently acquired AffloVest respiratory therapy business for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, benefited from the initial stages of recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic through the second quarter of 2021, as well as an expanded prescriber base. However, in the third quarter of 2021 revenue was negatively impacted by the prolonged recovery from COVID-19, including the resurgence due to the Delta variant during the period, which resulted in restricted access to clinics and hospitals and disrupted the recovery in patient visits versus the pre-COVID environment. In addition, the challenging labor market impacted our ability to recruit and retain quality candidates for our direct sales force.

Net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, was $4.3 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $12.7 million, or $0.66 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. Non-GAAP net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, was $1.1 million, compared to Non-GAAP net loss of $8.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

Weighted average shares used to compute diluted net income/loss per share were 20.0 million and 19.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

Adjusted EBITDA was $8.2 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2021, compared to $5.2 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

Balance Sheet Summary

On September 8, 2021, the Company entered into an amendment to its credit agreement that, among other things, adds a $30.0 million incremental term loan to the $25.0 million revolving credit facility provided by the credit agreement. The term loan and the revolving credit facility mature on September 8, 2024.

On September 8, 2021, in connection with the closing of the AffloVest acquisition, the Company borrowed the $30.0 million term loan and utilized that borrowing, together with a draw of $25.0 million under the revolving credit facility and cash on hand, to fund the purchase price. As of September 30, 2021, the Company had $22.4 million in cash and cash equivalents and $55.0 million of outstanding borrowings under its credit agreement, compared to $47.9 million in cash and cash equivalents and no outstanding borrowings on its revolving credit facility as of December 31, 2020.

2021 Financial Outlook

The Company now expects full year 2021 total revenue in the range of $203.5 million to $206.0 million, representing growth of approximately 9% to 10% year-over-year, compared to total revenue of $187.1 million in 2020. This includes the AffloVest expected revenue range of approximately $5.0 million to $5.5 million from the closing date of September 8, 2021 to December 31, 2021. The Company’s prior 2021 revenue guidance expectations called for total revenue in the range of $216.3 million to $224.5 million, representing an increase of 16% to 20%.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes the non-GAAP financial measures of Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating income (loss), and non-GAAP net income (loss), which differ from financial measures calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”).

Adjusted EBITDA in this release represents net income or loss, plus interest expense, net, or less interest income, net, less income tax benefit or plus income tax expense, plus depreciation and amortization, plus stock-based compensation expense, plus impairment charges and inventory write-offs, plus litigation defense costs, plus acquisition costs and plus executive transition costs. Non-GAAP gross margin in this release represents gross margin plus non-cash intangible amortization expense, inventory write-offs and inventory purchase price adjustments. Non-GAAP operating income (loss) in this release represents operating income (loss) plus non-cash intangible amortization expense, inventory write-offs, inventory purchase price adjustments, impairment of intangibles, acquisition costs and expenses, litigation defense costs and executive transition expenses. Non-GAAP net income (loss) represents net income (loss) adjusted for non-cash intangible amortization expense, inventory write-offs, inventory purchase price adjustments, impairment of intangibles, acquisition costs and expenses, litigation defense costs and executive transition expenses and adjusted for the income tax effect on reconciling items. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures are included in this press release.

These non-GAAP financial measures are presented because the Company believes they are useful indicators of its operating performance. Management uses these measures principally as measures of the Company’s operating performance and for planning purposes, including the preparation of the Company’s annual operating plan and financial projections. The Company believes these measures are useful to investors as supplemental information and because they are frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in its industry. The Company also believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to its management and investors as a measure of comparative operating performance from period to period. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA is used as a performance metric in the Company’s compensation program.

The non-GAAP financial measures presented in this release should not be considered as an alternative to, or superior to, their respective GAAP financial measures, as measures of financial performance or cash flows from operations as a measure of liquidity, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, and they should not be construed to imply that the Company’s future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for management’s discretionary use, as it does not reflect certain cash requirements such as tax payments, debt service requirements, capital expenditures and certain other cash costs that may recur in the future. Adjusted EBITDA contains certain other limitations, including the failure to reflect our cash expenditures, cash requirements for working capital needs and cash costs to replace assets being depreciated and amortized. In evaluating non-GAAP financial measures, you should be aware that in the future the Company may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments in this presentation. The Company’s presentation of non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed to imply that its future results will be unaffected by any such adjustments. Management compensates for these limitations by primarily relying on the Company’s GAAP results in addition to using non-GAAP financial measures on a supplemental basis. The Company’s definition of these non-GAAP financial measures is not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to different methods of calculation.
