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

Conference Call Scheduled for Today, February 5, 2020, at 3:30 PM CT (4:30 PM ET)

  • Revenues of $68.3 million increased 13.5% from second quarter last year
  • Net loss was $3.4 million, or $0.10 per basic and diluted share
  • Company raises low end of fiscal 2020 revenue guidance range

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 second quarter, ended December 31, 2019.

CSI’s fiscal 2020 second-quarter revenues were $68.3 million, an increase of $8.1 million, or 13.5%, from the second quarter of fiscal 2019. Gross profit margin was 79.9%.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased 14.0% to $46.9 million due to increased investments in clinical specialists, medical education and international expansion. Research and development expenses increased 50.1% to $10.8 million as a result of planned new product development and patient enrollment costs in the ECLIPSE clinical trial.

Second-quarter net loss was $3.4 million, or $0.10 per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $0.5 million, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share, in the prior-year period. Adjusted EBITDA totaled $1.0 million.

Scott Ward, CSI’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “The ongoing success of our strategies to strengthen our domestic core orbital atherectomy franchises and add new revenue streams contributed to our seventh consecutive quarter of double-digit revenue growth.

“Worldwide coronary revenues grew 30% driven by 14% unit growth domestically, the adoption of our procedure support product offering and the expansion of orbital atherectomy internationally, particularly in Japan. Worldwide peripheral revenues increased 8% driven primarily by 12% unit growth domestically.”

CSI Raises Low End of Fiscal 2020 Revenue Guidance

Ward concluded, “Consistent with our expectations, the combination of 10% domestic core orbital atherectomy revenue growth, increasing adoption of our coronary procedure support products and international expansion drove 14% revenue growth during the first half of the fiscal year. While quarterly comparisons become slightly more difficult in the second half, we believe the momentum we have established is sustainable and we are raising the low end of our guidance range to reflect our expectation of 13% to 14% revenue growth in fiscal 2020.

“In addition, fiscal 2020 investments in new product development, clinical evidence and general and administrative expenses will be higher than previously forecasted. As a result, we now anticipate a net loss in fiscal 2020 of approximately 2% of revenues, including the previously disclosed costs related to the WIRION® acquisition.”

For fiscal 2020 ending June 30, 2020, CSI anticipates:

  • Revenue of $280 million to $283 million, representing 13% to 14% growth compared with fiscal 2019;
  • Gross profit margin of 79% to 80%;
  • Net loss of approximately 2% of revenues, including approximately $1 million of intangible asset amortization and an additional $1 million of direct expenses related to the WIRION acquisition; and
  • Positive Adjusted EBITDA.

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 Cardiovascular Systems, Inc.

Cardiovascular Systems, Inc., based in St. Paul, Minn., is a medical device company focused on developing and commercializing innovative solutions for treating vascular and coronary disease. The company’s orbital atherectomy system treats calcified and fibrotic plaque in arterial vessels throughout the leg and heart in a few minutes of treatment time and addresses many of the limitations associated with existing surgical, catheter and pharmacological treatment alternatives.

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 non-cash charges such as 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.
