MARIETTA, Georgia , May 9, 2022 (press release) –

  • First Quarter Net Sales of $58.9 Million Reflects Double-Digit Revenue Increase for the Third Straight Quarter in the Company's Continuing Portfolio of Products
  • Management to Host Conference Call on May 4, 2022, at 8:30 AM ET

MiMedx Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: MDXG) (“MIMEDX” or the “Company”), a transformational placental biologics company, today announced the filing of its first quarter 2022 Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2022.

Timothy R. Wright, MIMEDX Chief Executive Officer, commented, “For the third consecutive quarter, the team delivered double-digit growth in our Advanced Wound Care products, achieving a 13% increase year-over-year. The fundamentals of our growth strategy are driving strong performance, and we are executing against our stated objectives. We have re-designed our training program for our sales professionals to improve revenue generation through more consistent, effective and aligned messaging that communicates the clinical and economic value of MIMEDX products. We also are gaining traction in the under-penetrated Surgical Recovery market, due in part to our recent publication involving clinical effectiveness in Mohs surgery, and escalating the adoption of our PURION® processed tissue technologies where conventional treatments have safety or efficacy limitations and patients are seeking a better outcome.”

Mr. Wright continued, “Our Commercial, Research and Product Development teams are collaborating and executing, and we are making significant progress towards our milestones. Leading up to the launch of EPIFIX® in Japan, we have gained the support of prominent medical societies and identified clinical sites for initial product evaluations. In preparation for the launches of our AMNIOEFFECT™ and Placental Collagen Matrix platform technologies in the U.S. market, we have completed a number of market development focus groups with industry thought-leaders and key stakeholders, and are advancing research initiatives that enable our commercial strategy and expand the scientific foundation behind our placental biologics portfolios.”

“With regard to our late-stage clinical pipeline, we view our micronized dehydrated Human Amnion Chorion Membrane (mdHACM) platform as an outstanding opportunity, and we are taking critical steps to accelerate the initiation of trial enrollment in our planned Knee Osteoarthritis (KOA) clinical trial program. Consistent with industry best practices, we are lining up industry-leading clinical and scientific resources to augment our own efforts, along with world-class experts in the field of osteoarthritis. It is imperative we fast-track these research initiatives to build on the promising data derived from our Phase 2B KOA study and further educate the market on the potential impact of mdHACM on the underlying disease process. If approved, we believe there is tremendous revenue generation potential in these programs, and we are working tirelessly to accelerate our path to serving these patients suffering from a void in safe and effective treatment options.”

MIMEDX is determined to drive meaningful, long-term value across its core Wound Care and Surgical Recovery business, as well as its late-stage musculoskeletal pipeline. Effective April 2022, MIMEDX created two defined, cohesive internal business units within the Company: one focused on Wound Care and Surgical Recovery markets, its existing product portfolio, and near-term innovation, led by Dr. Rohit Kashyap (President, Wound Care & Surgical); and the other, led by Dr. Robert Stein (President, Regenerative Medicine & Biologics Innovation), focused solely on Regenerative Medicine technologies, specifically progressing its placental biologics platform towards registration as a U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approved biological drug.

Mr. Wright added, “This organizational alignment is designed to enable dedicated key contributors to work in collaboration, functioning in a way that streamlines operations and positions necessary resources, infrastructure and expertise critical to innovation and value creation. The senior leadership team we have assembled at MIMEDX is talented, experienced and well-equipped to accomplish the strategic initiatives we have outlined, and I am confident this organizational structure best potentiates our collective ability to innovate, execute and achieve the next phase of growth for MIMEDX.”

Recent Operating and Financial Highlights:

  • Reported first quarter net sales of $58.9 million, down less than 2% from the prior year quarter despite the loss of revenue from Section 351 products (as defined below). Net sales of the Company's continuing portfolio of tissue and cord products increased 13% versus the same period last year.
  • Announced the publication of a peer-reviewed study in the Journal of Wound Care that demonstrated the cost-effectiveness of EPIFIX compared with standard of care in treating lower extremity diabetic foot ulcers, noting a significant reduction in major amputations and hospital utilization.
  • Presented cost-effectiveness data for EPIFIX at the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) Spring Meeting: "Reducing Costs While Preserving Lives & Limbs in Medicare Patients - Cost-Effectiveness of Dehydrated Human Amnion Chorion Membrane Allografts in the Treatment of Lower Extremity Diabetic Ulcers."
  • Presented scientific poster at SAWC Spring Meeting titled "PURION processed Placental Biologics Retain Critical Activity for Healing Fibrotic Wounds."

Key First Quarter 2022 Financial Metrics

  • Net sales of $58.9 million for first quarter 2022, compared to $60.0 million for the prior year period
  • Net loss of $10.5 million for first quarter 2022, compared to a net loss of $8.4 million for the prior year period
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 of $(1.7) million for first quarter 2022, compared to $5.0 million for the prior year period

MIMEDX reported net sales for the three months ended March 31, 2022, of $58.9 million, compared to $60.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, a decrease of 1.8%. Net sales in the first quarter of 2022 include $0.4 million of Section 351 products, compared to $8.1 million in the first quarter of 2021. This reflects the May 31, 2021 end of the FDA's period of enforcement discretion, after which the Company was no longer able to market Section 351 products in the United States.

First quarter net sales of the continuing portfolio of tissue and cord products increased 13% compared to the same period last year, reflecting the impact of strategic commercial initiatives, including growth in the Surgical Recovery market.

MIMEDX has two primary classes of products: (1) Advanced Wound Care, or Section 361, products, consisting of its tissue and cord sheet allograft products, and (2) Section 351 products, consisting of the Company’s micronized and particulate products. Advanced Wound Care is further disaggregated between the Company’s Tissue/Other and Cord products. A summary of the Company's revenue, including revenue derived from its Section 351 products, is included in the table below (amounts in thousands):

  Three Months Ended March 31,   Change
    2022     2021   $   %
Advanced Wound Care              
Tissue/Other $ 52,852   $ 46,569   $ 6,283     13.5 %

Total Net Sales $ 58,894   $ 59,967   $ (1,073 )   (1.8)%
  1. In connection with new guidance provided by the FDA in November 2017, the FDA chose to exercise enforcement discretion with respect to investigational new drug applications and pre-market approval requirements for certain products regulated as Human Cells, Tissues and Cellular and Tissue-Based Products (HCT/Ps) through May 31, 2021 (referred to as the period of Enforcement Discretion).
  2. “Other” represents revenue transactions in the indicated period relating to performance obligations settled prior to October 1, 2019, the date at which the Company changed its pattern of revenue recognition. For all practical purposes, the Company is not able to allocate these revenue transactions to different product groups.

Gross profit margin for the three months ended March 31, 2022, was 83.1% compared to 83.9% for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2022, were $49.6 million, compared to $45.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses reflects increases in personnel costs, sales commissions and travel expenses. Increases in personnel costs and sales commissions were the result of sales force realignment and expansion; additionally, the Company's focus on sales of products into areas of Surgical Recovery results in a proportional increase in sales through sales agents. The increase in travel expenses reflects the removal of travel restrictions that the Company had in place during the first quarter of 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

After the end of the FDA's period of Enforcement Discretion, MIMEDX made the strategic decision to maintain its staffing levels, including for its sales force, in support of its commercial growth objectives. As a result, the level of selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of net sales is higher in the first quarter of 2022 compared to the prior year quarter and to its historical trends. In addition, due primarily to the annual reset of insurance deductibles at the beginning of each calendar year, net sales in the first quarter are typically lower than in other quarters within a single year. The Company therefore expects the level of selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of net sales to decline over the remainder of 2022.

Research and development expenses were $6.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared to $4.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The increase reflects higher personnel costs, driven by increases in headcount to support clinical research efforts connected to the Company’s commercial and late-stage pipelines.

Investigation, restatement and related expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2022, were $2.6 million compared to $7.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The decrease was primarily the result of a decline in legal fees advanced on behalf of certain former officers and directors of the Company.

Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2022, was $10.5 million compared to a net loss of $8.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

As of March 31, 2022, the Company had $75.7 million of cash and cash equivalents, compared to $87.1 million as of December 31, 2021. The decrease during the three months ended March 31, 2022 reflects payments of accrued compensation, which included the payment of annual incentives, and the payment of payroll taxes, some of which had been deferred under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act.

Outlook for 2022
The Company maintained its outlook for 2022, as disclosed in its earnings release for the year ended December 31, 2021, including that it expects net sales of its continuing portfolio of Advanced Wound Care products, which were $240.0 million in 2021, to grow 11% to 14% in 2022, as it plans to launch EPIFIX in Japan, as well as two new products in the U.S., AMNIOEFFECT and its Placental Collagen Matrix product, later this year.

Reconciliation of GAAP Net Loss to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

In addition to our GAAP results, we provide certain non-GAAP metrics including Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (“EBITDA”) and Adjusted EBITDA. We believe that the presentation of these measures provides important supplemental information to management and investors regarding our performance. These measurements are not a substitute for GAAP measurements. Company management uses these Non-GAAP measurements as aids in monitoring our ongoing financial performance from quarter-to-quarter and year-to-year on a regular basis and for benchmarking against comparable companies.

EBITDA is intended to provide a measure of the Company’s operating performance as it eliminates the effects of financing and capital expenditures. EBITDA consists of GAAP net loss excluding: (i) depreciation, (ii) amortization of intangibles, (iii) interest expense, net, and (iv) income tax provision. Adjusted EBITDA is intended to provide a normalized view of EBITDA and our broader business operations that we expect to experience on an ongoing basis by removing certain non-cash items and items that may be irregular, one-time, or non-recurring from EBITDA. This enables us to identify underlying trends in our business that could otherwise be masked by such items. Adjusted EBITDA consists of GAAP net loss excluding: (i) depreciation, (ii) amortization of intangibles, (iii) interest expense, (iv) income tax provision, (v) costs incurred in connection with Audit Committee Investigation and Restatement, and (vi) share-based compensation.

A reconciliation of GAAP net loss to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA appears in the table below (in thousands):
