August 1, 2022

Second Quarter Revenue Increased 17% Year-Over-Year; First Half Revenue Increased 15% Year-Over-Year

MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tactile Systems Technology, Inc. (“Tactile Medical”) (Nasdaq: TCMD), a medical technology company focused on developing medical devices for the treatment of patients with underserved chronic diseases at home, today reported financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2022.

Second Quarter 2022 Summary:

  • Total revenue increased 17% year-over-year to $59.6 million, compared to $51.1 million in second quarter 2021.
    • Total revenue in second quarter 2022 included $8.0 million of revenue from sales of airway clearance products, which includes the AffloVest product line acquired on September 8, 2021.
  • Operating loss of $4.1 million, compared to $0.1 million in second quarter 2021.
    • Non-GAAP operating loss of $1.8 million, compared to non-GAAP operating income of $0.9 million in second quarter of 2021.
  • Net loss of $4.6 million, compared to net income of $1.3 million in second quarter 2021.
    • Non-GAAP net loss of $2.9 million, compared to non-GAAP net income of $2.0 million in second quarter of 2021.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $1.7 million, compared to $4.1 million in second quarter 2021.

Second Quarter 2022 Highlights:

  • On June 7, 2022, the Company announced the publication of an expert opinion consensus statement in peer-reviewed Phlebology: The Journal of Venous Disease. Three independent societies’ consensus endorsements affirmed that pneumatic compression should be recommended as a treatment for lymphedema, including lymphedema which is secondary to chronic venous insufficiency (“CVI”).

Highlights Subsequent to Quarter End:

  • On July 25, 2022, the Company announced the full market release of its new ComfortEase™ garments for the Flexitouch® Plus system, and the launch of its Kylee™ mobile application.

“Our total revenue performance in the second quarter exceeded our expectations, driven by strong sales of our airway clearance products,” said Dan Reuvers, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tactile Medical. “Airway clearance product sales increased 96% year-over-year compared to sales by the prior owner in the second quarter of 2021, reflecting strong patient demand seen by our AffloVest channel partners, and our team’s success in supporting these partners and expanding our relationships. Consistent with our expectations, revenue from our lymphedema products increased 1% year-over-year, driven primarily by lower rates of patient, provider and employee absenteeism compared to the first quarter. We also completed the limited market release of our new ComfortEase garments and Kylee mobile application in the second quarter, culminating in the full market release of both products in July.”

Mr. Reuvers continued, “Our updated 2022 total revenue guidance now reflects the stronger-than-expected revenue results in the first six months of 2022 and our updated growth expectations for the balance of the year. In the second half of 2022, we are focused on improving the productivity of recently hired and promoted sales representatives, furthering the successful introduction of our new products and supporting our AffloVest channel partners, and positioning ourselves for improved profitability.”

Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Total revenue in the second quarter of 2022 increased $8.6 million, or 17%, to $59.6 million, compared to $51.1 million in the second quarter of 2021. The increase in total revenue was attributable to $8.0 million in sales of the airway clearance product line, which includes the AffloVest product acquired on September 8, 2021, and an increase of $0.6 million, or 1%, in sales and rentals of the lymphedema product line in the quarter ended June 30, 2022, compared to the second quarter of 2021.

Gross profit in the second quarter of 2022 increased $7.0 million, or 19%, to $43.2 million, compared to $36.2 million in the second quarter of 2021. Gross margin was 72.5% of revenue, compared to 70.9% of revenue in the second quarter of 2021. Non-GAAP gross margin was 73.0% of revenue, compared to 70.9% of revenue in the second quarter of 2021.

Operating expenses in the second quarter of 2022 increased $11.0 million, or 30%, to $47.3 million, compared to $36.3 million in the second quarter of 2021.

Operating loss was $4.1 million in the second quarter of 2022, compared to $0.1 million in the second quarter of 2021. Non-GAAP operating loss in the second quarter of 2022 was $1.8 million, compared to non-GAAP operating income of $0.9 million in the second quarter of 2021.

Other expense was $0.6 million in the second quarter of 2022, compared to $24,000 in the second quarter of 2021. The change in other expense was primarily due to an increase in interest expense.

Income tax benefit was $20,000 in the second quarter of 2022, compared to $1.4 million in the second quarter of 2021. The difference is related to a full valuation allowance being recorded against all deferred tax assets in the current year period and a tax benefit related to a research and development credit recognized in the second quarter of 2021.

Net loss in the second quarter of 2022 was $4.6 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, compared to net income of $1.3 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2021. Non-GAAP net loss in the second quarter of 2022 was $2.9 million, compared to non-GAAP net income $2.0 million in the second quarter of 2021.

Weighted average shares used to compute diluted net loss/income per share were 20.0 million in each of the second quarters of 2022 and 2021.

Adjusted EBITDA was $1.7 million in the second quarter of 2022, compared to $4.1 million in the second quarter of 2021.

First Six Months 2022 Financial Results:

Total revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2022, increased $13.8 million, or 15%, to $107.6 million, compared to $93.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021. The increase in revenue was attributable to $15.3 million in sales of the airway clearance product line, partially offset by a decrease of $1.5 million, or 2%, in sales and rentals of the lymphedema product line.

Net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2022, was $20.2 million, or $1.01 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1.0 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2021. Non-GAAP net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2022, was $11.3 million, compared to Non-GAAP net income of $0.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021.

Weighted average shares used to compute diluted net loss per share were 20.0 million and 19.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

Adjusted EBITDA loss was $0.9 million in the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $4.1 million in the six months ended June 30, 2021.

The reader is cautioned not to put undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, as these statements are subject to numerous factors and uncertainties outside of the Company’s control that can make such statements untrue, including, but not limited to, the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company’s business, financial condition and results of operations, and the Company’s inability to mitigate such impacts; the adequacy of the Company’s liquidity to pursue its business objectives; the Company’s ability to obtain reimbursement from third party payers for its products; loss or retirement of key executives, including prior to identifying a successor; adverse economic conditions or intense competition; loss of a key supplier; entry of new competitors and products; adverse federal, state and local government regulation; technological obsolescence of the Company’s products; technical problems with the Company’s research and products; the Company’s ability to expand its business through strategic acquisitions; the Company’s ability to integrate acquisitions and related businesses; wage and component price inflation; the effects of current and future U.S. and foreign trade policy and tariff actions; or the inability to carry out research, development and commercialization plans. In addition, other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially are discussed in the Company’s filings with the SEC.

The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise its forward-looking statements as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes the non-GAAP financial measures of Adjusted EBITDA (loss), 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 (loss) 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 litigation defense costs, plus or minus the change in fair value of earn-out, and plus executive transition costs. Non-GAAP gross margin in this release represents gross margin plus non-cash intangible amortization expense. Non-GAAP operating income (loss) in this release represents operating income (loss) adjusted for non-cash intangible amortization expense, change in fair value of earn-out, litigation defense costs and executive transition expenses. Non-GAAP net income (loss) represents net income (loss) adjusted for non-cash intangible amortization expense, change in fair value of earn-out, 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.
