- Q4 2016 Wound Care revenue grew 36% over Q4 2015
- SSO revenue for Q4 2016 grew 45% over Q4 2015
The Company recorded record revenue for the year ended December 31, 2016 of $246.8 million, a $59.5 million or 32% increase over 2015 revenue of $187.3 million. The Company recorded record revenue for the 2016 fourth quarter of $71.6 million, a $19.8 million or 38% increase over 2015 fourth quarter revenue of $51.8 million.
Parker H. "Pete" Petit, Chairman and CEO, stated, "We are pleased with our fourth quarter revenue performance being in the upper end of our guidance. The fourth quarter of 2016 makes 21 consecutive quarters of sequential revenue growth and 20 of 21 quarters of meeting or exceeding our revenue guidance. As with the previous quarters in 2016, our core advanced wound care revenue, led by our commercial accounts, was the primary contributor to our record fourth quarter performance. EpiCord®, our new dehydrated human umbilical cord allograft, is receiving a substantial amount of interest, and our other recently launched new products, AmnioFill™ and OrthoFlo Lyophilized, performed to our expectations. The fourth quarter traction of these new products gives us added confidence in their expected impact for 2017 and beyond."
Bill Taylor, President and COO, noted, "Our flagship EpiFix® product did extremely well, and it continues to be the driver of our rapid success in the advanced wound care market. While EpiFix is especially strong with our commercial wound care accounts, it also has a solid presence in our government accounts. Additionally, we ended the quarter with very positive momentum and an extremely respectable number of orders that will be fulfilled in the first quarter of 2017. This is a solid indicator of the continuing quarter-over-quarter market growth and share gains we are making with our EpiFix and AmnioFix® dehydrated Human Amnion/Chorion Membrane (dHACM) products. The market's demand for these products is growing and the breadth of their usage is rapidly expanding.
"Both of our sales verticals showed strong performance during the quarter," Taylor continued. "Wound Care performed extremely well in the fourth quarter with 36% growth over the prior year's fourth quarter. Our Surgical, Sports Medicine and Orthopedics revenue was up significantly with 45% growth over the 2015 fourth quarter, despite lower than expected fourth quarter revenue from Stability Biologics."
Petit added, "We believe our fourth quarter growth rate is a very encouraging indicator of our trajectory toward meeting or exceeding our guidance for 2017. As we previously stated, we feel that our 2017 revenue guidance is conservative, and one should be able to see that based on our fourth quarter revenue growth. In addition, we are pleased to report that our cash position at the end of the fourth quarter has increased very significantly and the Days Sales Outstanding (DSO) in our Accounts Receivable has come down nicely."
Full Year 2017 and First Quarter 2017 Guidance Highlights
The Company announced its revenue guidance for the first quarter of 2017 as follows:
- First quarter of 2017 revenue forecasted to be in the range of $69.5 to $72.5 million
MiMedx reiterated its full year 2017 guidance that was previously communicated by the Company on December 16, 2016, which included:
- 2017 revenue guidance in the range of $302 to $307 million
- Gross profit margins for 2017 expected to be in the range of 86% to 88%
- 2017 Operating Earnings forecasted to grow by 90% or greater
- GAAP EPS for 2017 projected to be in the range of $0.18 to $0.20
- Adjusted EPS* for 2017 projected to be in the range of $0.31 to $0.33
- 2017 GAAP Net Earnings expected to grow in excess of 95%
- 2017 Adjusted EBITDA* expected to be in the range of 21% to 23% of revenue
"Our first quarter of 2017 expectations are tempered by the normal seasonality effects experienced in the first quarter of every year. Even with that offset for seasonality, our first quarter of 2017 guidance provides for 29% to 35% revenue growth over first quarter of 2016 of $53.4 million. With our 2017 full year revenue growth guided to be in the range of 22% to 24%, our expected growth in the first quarter of 2017 should give MiMedx strong momentum towards meeting or exceeding our full year 2017 forecast. With the traditional seasonality experienced in our market, the first quarter of the year is typically the lightest quarter, followed by strong growth in the second, slightly lower growth in the third quarter due to some vacation effects, and then another quarter of strong growth with the fourth quarter," noted Petit.
Petit concluded, "In spite of some disruptions, which seem to come with our leadership role and success, we have continued to perform extremely well over the last five years. I believe 2017 will be the year that is acknowledged as our 'coming of age.' We have achieved that level of corporate size and maturity that should bring confidence in our stability and certainty in our disclosures. We have developed a very productive platform technology with our placenta and amniotic membrane based product lines. We wrote the book on amniotic membrane regenerative medicine. We will have a new series of clinical and scientific publications in 2017 related to this technology. We will have a sales force well over 300 individuals that is well managed and monitored with our sales management systems. Our R&D activities will result in disclosures about exciting new therapies using our placenta based technology. Our management staff has continued to become more effective, and all these years of planning and execution should be quite evidenced with our progress in 2017."
