November 2, 2020

Third Quarter Revenue Decreased 1% Year-Over-Year; Flat Year-Over-Year on an Operational Basis

First Nine Months Revenue Decreased 3% Year-over-Year; Flat Year-over-Year on an Operational Basis

MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tactile Systems Technology, Inc. (“Tactile Medical”) (Nasdaq: TCMD), a medical technology company focused on developing medical devices for the at-home treatment of chronic diseases, today reported financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2020.

Third Quarter 2020 Summary:

  • Total revenue decreased 1% year-over-year, to $49.1 million, compared to $49.6 million in third quarter 2019.
    • Excluding the contribution to third quarter 2019 revenue related to the Company’s adoption of ASC 842, third quarter 2020 revenue reflects a flat year-over-year change on an operational basis.
    • Revenue for the third quarter of 2020 was negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Operating income of $1.8 million, compared to operating income of $3.2 million in third quarter 2019.
  • Net income of $2.4 million, compared to net income of $2.4 million in third quarter 2019.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $6.0 million, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $6.4 million in third quarter 2019.
  • Cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities of $42.2 million at September 30, 2020, compared to $45.2 million at December 31, 2019.

“We were pleased with our strong execution in the third quarter, which resulted in better-than-expected financial results despite continued business disruption associated with the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Dan Reuvers, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tactile Medical. “While we’re pleased to see patients returning to seek treatment and healthcare facilities adapting to the environment, the challenge remains that many healthcare facilities are operating at significantly lower rates of productivity due to COVID-19. Despite many facilities still operating with constraints related to social distancing and safety protocols, our team has done an impressive job of supporting our clinicians and patients, while expanding our prescriber base, in part, by leveraging virtual education events.”

Mr. Reuvers continued, “We remain cautiously optimistic with respect to the near-term impacts of COVID-19 on our results. We are providing an updated 2020 financial outlook, which reflects expectations for a modest return to revenue growth on a year-over-year basis in the fourth quarter. We are well-capitalized, which allows us to continue to invest strategically in both expanding our industry leadership position, and our market development activities, in the $5B+ U.S. lymphedema market. We expect the combination of our strong execution, and the eventual subsiding of the pandemic, will result in the return to our long-term track record of strong growth and improving profitability.”

Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Total revenue in the third quarter of 2020 decreased $0.5 million, or 1%, to $49.1 million, compared to $49.6 million in the third quarter of 2019. Total revenue in the third quarter of 2020 was flat on an operational basis, excluding the contribution to third quarter 2019 revenue related to the Company’s adoption of ASC 842. The decrease in total revenue was attributable to a decrease of $1.8 million, or 4%, in sales and rentals of the Flexitouch system, which was partially offset by an increase of $1.3 million, or 26%, in sales and rentals of the Entre system in the quarter ended September 30, 2020. Third quarter revenue continued to be negatively impacted by COVID-19, primarily from social distancing requirements and safety protocols imposed within clinics. The decrease in third quarter revenue was partially offset by the continued expansion of our commercial team, effective virtual educational events, and an increase in the number of Medicare patients served.

Gross profit in the third quarter of 2020 decreased $0.4 million, or 1%, to $35.0 million, compared to $35.4 million in the third quarter of 2019. Gross margin was 71.2% of revenue, compared to 71.3% of revenue in the third quarter of 2019.

Operating expenses in the third quarter of 2020 increased $1.0 million, or 3%, to $33.2 million, compared to $32.2 million in the third quarter of 2019. The increase in operating expenses in the third quarter of 2020 was driven by reimbursement, general and administrative expenses, primarily due to a $1.6 million increase in personnel-related compensation expense in our reimbursement operations, payer development and corporate functions and a $1.0 million increase in occupancy costs, depreciation expense, legal and professional fees. The increase in reimbursement, general and administrative expenses was partially offset by lower sales and marketing expenses, which decreased $1.2 million, or 6%, to $19.5 million, compared to $20.7 million in the third quarter of 2019 and, to a lesser extent, by lower research and development expenses, which decreased $0.4 million, or 25%, to $1.1 million, compared to $1.5 million in the third quarter of 2019.

Operating income in the third quarter of 2020 decreased $1.4 million, or 44%, to $1.8 million, compared to $3.2 million in the third quarter of 2019.

Income tax benefit in the third quarter of 2020 was $0.8 million, compared to income tax expense of $0.9 million in the third quarter of 2019. The year-over-year change in income tax expense/benefit was primarily due to changes in our effective tax rate, which was primarily attributable to a change in projected taxable income, including proportionately higher tax benefits for stock-based compensation as compared to the same period last year.

Net income in the third quarter of 2020 was $2.4 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared to net income of $2.4 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2019. Weighted average shares used to compute diluted net income per share were 19.7 million and 19.6 million in the third quarters of 2020 and 2019, respectively.

Adjusted EBITDA was $6.0 million in the third quarter of 2020, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $6.4 million in the third quarter of 2019.

First Nine Months 2020 Financial Results:

Total revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, decreased $4.5 million, or 3%, to $127.9 million, compared to $132.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Total revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2020, was flat on an operational basis, excluding the contribution to revenue in the nine months ended September 30, 2019 related to the Company’s adoption of ASC 842. The decrease in revenue was driven by a decrease of approximately $7.1 million, or 6%, in sales and rentals of the Flexitouch system, offset partially by an increase of $2.6 million, or 21%, in sales and rentals of the Entre system for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. Revenue in the first two months of 2020 was ahead of our expectations. Beginning in March 2020 and continuing through the third quarter, revenue was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, which limited our ability to access our clinician customers and their patients. Specifically, we saw healthcare facilities and clinics restricting access to their clinicians, reducing patient consultations, or closing temporarily due to COVID-19.

Net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $12.7 million, or $(0.66) per diluted share, compared to net income of $6.7 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Weighted average shares used to compute diluted net loss/income per share were 19.3 million and 19.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

Adjusted EBITDA was $4.8 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2020, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $14.9 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

Cash Position

At September 30, 2020, cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were $42.2 million, compared to $45.2 million at December 31, 2019. The Company had no outstanding borrowings on its $10.0 million revolving credit facility at September 30, 2020.

2020 Financial Outlook

The Company is providing updated full year 2020 revenue guidance. The Company originally provided full year 2020 revenue guidance on February 26, 2020, but subsequently withdrew its guidance on April 6, 2020, due to the rapidly evolving environment and continued uncertainties associated with COVID-19.

The Company expects full year 2020 total revenue in the range of $184.9 million to $186.9 million, representing a decline of 1% to 2% year-over-year, compared to total revenue of $189.5 million in 2019.

Pursuant to the Company’s adoption of ASC 842, full year 2019 revenue included approximately $5.0 million of rental revenue related to operating leases, which will not contribute to the Company’s revenue results going forward. Excluding the contribution to full year 2019 revenue related to the Company’s adoption of ASC 842, the 2020 expected revenue range reflects revenue growth of approximately 0% to 1% year-over-year on an operational basis.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes the non-GAAP financial measures of Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP revenue change, adjusted gross margin and Adjusted EBITDA margin, 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 and plus CEO transition costs. Adjusted EBITDA margin in this release represents net margin (net income or loss divided by total revenue), plus or less the same items as with Adjusted EBITDA, but on a percentage of revenue basis. Reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss), and Adjusted EBITDA margin to net margin, are included in this press release.

Non-GAAP revenue change in this release represents third quarter and first nine months of 2020 revenue compared to third quarter and first nine months of 2019 revenue less operating lease revenue that was recognized in those 2019 periods in connection with the Company’s adoption of ASC 842. This release also includes the Company’s projected full year 2020 non-GAAP revenue change compared to full year 2019 revenue less operating lease revenue that was recognized in 2019 in connection with the Company’s adoption of ASC 842. Reconciliations of historical and projected non-GAAP revenue change to historical and projected GAAP revenue change are included in this press release.

Adjusted gross margin in this release represents gross margin plus inventory write-offs. A reconciliation of adjusted gross margin to gross margin is 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 budget 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.

Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP revenue change, adjusted gross margin and Adjusted EBITDA margin are non-GAAP financial measures and should not be considered as an alternative to, or superior to, net income or loss, GAAP revenue change, gross margin or net margin, respectively, 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.
