Cardiovascular Systems, Inc. Reports Fiscal 2020 Fourth-Quarter Financial Results

08/04/20

Conference Call Scheduled for Today, August 4, 2020, at 3:30 PM CT (4:30 PM ET)

  • Revenues of $42.5 million decreased 37.6% from fourth quarter last year
  • Net loss was $15.2 million, or $0.43 per basic and diluted share
  • Fiscal year 2020 revenues declined 4.6% to $236.5 million
  • Equity issuance raised $135.0 million in net proceeds
  • Management provides fiscal 2021 first quarter revenue guidance of $55 million to $58 million

ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cardiovascular Systems, Inc. (CSI®) (NASDAQ: CSII), a medical device company developing and commercializing innovative interventional treatment systems for patients with peripheral and coronary artery disease, today reported financial results for its fiscal fourth quarter, ended June 30, 2020.

CSI’s fiscal 2020 fourth-quarter revenues were $42.5 million, a decrease of $25.7 million, or 37.6%, from the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019. Gross profit margin was 76.2%.

Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased 20.5% to $35.0 million. Research and development expenses increased 25.1% to $11.8 million as a result of planned new product development and a non-cash charge of $3.3 million related to patents within our product portfolio and pipeline that are no longer tied to current or future commercial activities.

Fourth-quarter net loss was $15.2 million, or $0.43 per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $1.5 million, or $0.04 per basic and diluted share, in the prior-year period. Adjusted EBITDA totaled a loss of $10.6 million.

Fiscal year 2020 revenues declined 4.6% to $236.5 million. Gross margin decreased to 79.4% compared to 80.8% in the prior year, primarily driven by lower production volumes. Operating expenses increased $13.4 million, or 6.7%, to $214.6 million. Net loss was $(27.2) million, or $(0.79) per basic and diluted share, for the full year compared to a net loss of $(0.3) million, or $(0.01) per basic and diluted share in the prior year.

As of June 30, 2020, CSI had cash and marketable securities totaling $232.2 million and no outstanding long-term debt.

Scott Ward, CSI’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “At the outset of the coronavirus pandemic, we established three near-term goals: to assure our continued ability to serve customers and support patients; to protect the health of employees while retaining the strength and capacity of our business; and to ensure business continuity. We achieved each of these goals. In addition, we took actions to build our brand, strengthen our customer relationships and to maximize the number of patients we reach during the recovery period and into the future. As a result, our financial results for the quarter were better than expected.

“As we enter fiscal 2021, our long-term strategy remains intact. We will continue to invest and drive growth in our core business, innovate through our product pipeline, accelerate our revenue per procedure, generate medical evidence, increase our commitment to medical education, and expand our international commercialization efforts.”

Fiscal 2021 First Quarter Guidance

Said Ward, “The recovery in procedure volumes is now well underway. After experiencing a low point in mid-April, we have witnessed a steady improvement in average daily sales. We anticipate continued improvement during our fiscal first quarter.”

For the fiscal 2021 first quarter ending September 30, 2020, CSI anticipates:

  • Revenue of $55 million to $58 million, representing sequential revenue growth compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 of 29% to 36%;
  • Gross profit as a percentage of revenues in the 76% to 77% range; and
  • Operating expenses in a range of $50 to $52 million.

Equity Issuance Raised $135.0 Million in Net Proceeds

In June, CSI completed an underwritten public offering of 4,227,941 shares of its common stock at a price to the public of $34.00 per share, generating net proceeds of $135.0 million.

CSI intends to use the net proceeds from the offering for working capital and general corporate purposes, which may include, but not be limited to, expansion of marketing programs, international expansion, new product development, clinical studies and publications, investments, acquisitions, or general working capital needs.

REACH PVI Study Presented at New Cardiovascular Horizons Conference Digital Education Series

In July, the results from the REACH PVI study were presented as a late breaker as part of the New Cardiovascular Horizons (NCVH) Digital Education Series. This study prospectively evaluated acute clinical outcomes of orbital atherectomy via transradial access for the treatment of peripheral artery disease (PAD) in lower extremity lesions.

CSI’s low profile 5Fr, Extended Length Diamondback 360® and Stealth 360® Peripheral Orbital Atherectomy Systems (OAS) are the only atherectomy systems that allow radial access for the treatment of peripheral lesions.

The results of the REACH PVI study demonstrated that the use of orbital atherectomy in radial peripheral vascular interventions has a high rate of procedural and treatment success and is effective in reducing residual stenosis across all lesions. Ninety-eight percent of patients achieved procedural and treatment success. There were no reports of serious transradial access related events. Additionally, the study demonstrated short recovery time and length of stay, key factors in patient satisfaction.

National Primary Investigator for REACH PVI, Dr. Ankur Lodha, MD, Interventional Cardiologist, Cardiovascular Institute of the South, Lafayette, La., said, “It’s a fascinating time for peripheral interventions because the entire case can be done solely with radial artery access. Radial access can lead to better patient satisfaction and comfort, improved patient safety and is also beneficial to healthcare economics. CSI is leading the way with their peripheral orbital atherectomy device as it’s the only atherectomy system available that is designed to treat through the radial artery.”

Said Ward, “The positive data from REACH PVI confirms our belief that our low-profile OAS is uniquely positioned to safely treat patients suffering from PAD. Using an alternative access site, like radial, can provide shorter recovery time for patients, and reduced length of stay compared to femoral access. Our investment in this technology, and studies like REACH PVI, demonstrate our ongoing commitment to advancing medical evidence to support physicians and the patients they serve.”

About Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)

As many as 18 million Americans, most over age 65, suffer from PAD, which is caused by the accumulation of plaque in peripheral arteries reducing blood flow. Symptoms include leg pain when walking or at rest. Left untreated, PAD can lead to severe pain, immobility, non-healing wounds and eventually limb amputation. With risk factors such as diabetes and obesity on the rise, the prevalence of PAD is growing at double-digit rates.

Millions of patients with PAD may benefit from treatment with orbital atherectomy utilizing the Stealth 360® and Diamondback 360® Peripheral Orbital Atherectomy Systems, minimally invasive catheter systems developed and manufactured by CSI. These systems use a diamond-coated crown, attached to an orbiting shaft, which sands away plaque while preserving healthy vessel tissue — a critical factor in preventing reoccurrences. Balloon angioplasty and stents have significant shortcomings in treating hard, calcified lesions. Stents are prone to fractures and high recurrence rates, and treatment of hard, calcified lesions often leads to vessel damage and suboptimal results.

About Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) CAD is a life-threatening condition and a leading cause of death in men and women in the United States. CAD occurs when a fatty material called plaque builds up on the walls of arteries that supply blood to the heart. The plaque buildup causes the arteries to harden and narrow (atherosclerosis), reducing blood flow. The risk of CAD increases if a person has one or more of the following: high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol levels, diabetes, or family history of early heart disease. According to the American Heart Association, 16.3 million people in the United States have been diagnosed with CAD, the most common form of heart disease. Heart disease claims more than 600,000 lives in the United States each year. According to estimates, significant arterial calcium is present in nearly 40% of patients undergoing a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Significant calcium contributes to poor outcomes and higher treatment costs in coronary interventions when traditional therapies are used, including a significantly higher occurrence of death and major adverse cardiac events (MACE).

About REACH PVI

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement CSI's consolidated condensed financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP, CSI uses a non-GAAP financial measure referred to as "Adjusted EBITDA" in this release.

Reconciliations of this non-GAAP measure to the most comparable U.S. GAAP measure for the respective periods can be found in the following tables. In addition, an explanation of the manner in which CSI's management uses this measure to conduct and evaluate its business, the economic substance behind management's decision to use this measure, the substantive reasons why management believes that this measure provides useful information to investors, the material limitations associated with the use of this measure and the manner in which management compensates for those limitations is included following the reconciliation table.

Use and Economic Substance of Non-GAAP Financial Measures Used by CSI and Usefulness of Such Non-GAAP Financial Measures to Investors

CSI uses Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of performance and believes this measure facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period and company to company by factoring out potential differences caused by depreciation and amortization expense and stock based compensation. CSI's management uses Adjusted EBITDA to analyze the underlying trends in CSI's business, assess the performance of CSI's core operations, establish operational goals and forecasts that are used to allocate resources and evaluate CSI's performance period over period and in relation to its competitors' operating results. Additionally, CSI's management is evaluated on the basis of Adjusted EBITDA when determining achievement of their incentive compensation performance targets.

CSI believes that presenting Adjusted EBITDA provides investors greater transparency to the information used by CSI's management for its financial and operational decision-making and allows investors to see CSI's results "through the eyes" of management. CSI also believes that providing this information better enables CSI's investors to understand CSI's operating performance and evaluate the methodology used by CSI's management to evaluate and measure such performance.

The following is an explanation of each of the items that management excluded from Adjusted EBITDA and the reasons for excluding each of these individual items:

-- Stock-based compensation. CSI excludes stock-based compensation expense from its non-GAAP financial measures primarily because such expense, while constituting an ongoing and recurring expense, is not an expense that requires cash settlement. CSI's management also believes that excluding this item from CSI's non-GAAP results is useful to investors to understand the application of stock-based compensation guidance and its impact on CSI's operational performance, liquidity and its ability to make additional investments in the company, and it allows for greater transparency to certain line items in CSI's financial statements.

-- Depreciation and amortization expense. CSI excludes depreciation and amortization expense from its non-GAAP financial measures primarily because such expenses, while constituting ongoing and recurring expenses, are not expenses that require cash settlement and are not used by CSI's management to assess the core profitability of CSI's business operations. CSI's management also believes that excluding these items from CSI's non-GAAP results is useful to investors to understand CSI's operational performance, liquidity and its ability to make additional investments in the company.

Material Limitations Associated with the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Manner in which CSI Compensates for these Limitations

Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for CSI's financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Some of the limitations associated with CSI's use of these non-GAAP financial measures are:

-- Items such as stock-based compensation do not directly affect CSI's cash flow position; however, such items reflect economic costs to CSI and are not reflected in CSI's "Adjusted EBITDA" and therefore these non-GAAP measures do not reflect the full economic effect of these items.

-- Non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and therefore other companies may calculate similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures differently than CSI, limiting the usefulness of those measures for comparative purposes.

-- CSI's management exercises judgment in determining which types of charges or other items should be excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures CSI uses. CSI compensates for these limitations by relying primarily upon its GAAP results and using non-GAAP financial measures only supplementally. CSI provides full disclosure of each non-GAAP financial measure.

-- CSI uses and detailed reconciliations of each non-GAAP measure to its most directly comparable GAAP measure. CSI encourages investors to review these reconciliations. CSI qualifies its use of non-GAAP financial measures with cautionary statements as set forth above.
