Second Quarter 2021 Financial Summary

  • Revenue in the second quarter of 2021 was $38.1 million, 24% higher year-over-year, compared to $30.7 million in the second quarter of 2020, on recovery from initial COVID impact.
    • Joint Preservation and Restoration revenue of $11.9 million, up 79%

    • Other revenue of $1.9 million
    • Joint Preservation and Restoration represented 31% of total revenues, compared with 22% last year, highlighting the continued transformation of the business.
  • Gross margin was 55%, reflecting $3.8 million of acquisition related expenses and $2.1 million of product rationalization charges. Adjusted gross margin1, excluding these charges, was 70%.
  • Net income was $6.5 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $7.7 million, or $0.54 loss per diluted share, in the prior year.

Recent Operational Highlights

  • Performed first surgical procedure with Anika’s WristMotion® Total Wrist Arthroplasty System as part of its limited market launch. WristMotion is an exciting addition to Anika’s product portfolio, preserving motion and native anatomy in patients with arthritic wrist joints. Full nationwide market launch is planned for Fall 2021.
  • Received 510(k) clearance for a reverse shoulder implant system. This foundational clearance sets the stage for the development and expansion of our shoulder implant portfolio in the future.

Cheryl R. Blanchard, Ph.D., Anika’s President and CEO, commented, “We are pleased with our second quarter revenue growth as elective procedures continued to recover from the initial COVID impact. We are making significant progress in our business transformation but still view the impact of COVID as a headwind. We continue to expect double digit revenue growth in 2021, with stability in Joint Pain Management and strengthening in Joint Preservation, and we remain on track toward our 2024 goal to double revenues off our 2019 base.”   

Fiscal 2021 Outlook

The Company expects its overall revenue for fiscal year 2021 to grow 11-14% year-over year, up from its previous guidance of 10-13%. This growth is driven by Joint Preservation and Restoration growth of upper 20% to low 30% range with mid-single digit growth in Joint Pain Management. Other revenue is expected to be down low to mid-single digits for the year.

There remains continued uncertainty in the global market associated with the impact of the COVID pandemic, and the Company’s outlook for fiscal 2021 is subject to changing dynamics associated with COVID including vaccine distribution, COVID variants and other related developments.

Conference Call Information

Anika’s management will hold a conference call and webcast to discuss its financial results and business highlights today, Thursday, August 5, 2021 at 5:00 pm ET. The conference call can be accessed by dialing 1-866-269-4262 (toll-free domestic) or 1-856-344-9206 (international) and providing the conference ID number 2579568.

A replay of the webcast will be available on Anika’s website approximately two hours after the completion of the event.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered supplemental to, and not a substitute for, the Company’s reported financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Furthermore, the Company’s definition of non-GAAP measures may differ from similarly titled measures used by others. Because non-GAAP financial measures exclude the effect of items that will increase or decrease the Company’s reported results of operations, Anika strongly encourages investors to review the Company’s consolidated financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety. The Company presents these non-GAAP financial measures because it uses them as supplemental measures in internally assessing the Company’s operating performance, and, in the case of Adjusted EBITDA, it is set as a key performance metric to determine executive compensation. The Company also recognizes that these non-GAAP measures are commonly used in determining business performance more broadly and believes that they are helpful to investors, securities analysts, and other interested parties as a measure of comparative operating performance from period to period.

Adjusted Gross Margin

In Q2 2021, adjusted gross margin is defined by the Company as adjusted gross profit divided by total revenue. The Company defines adjusted gross profit as GAAP gross profit excluding amortization of certain acquired assets, the impact of inventory fair-value step up associated with our recent acquisitions and non-cash product rationalization charges.

Adjusted EBITDA

In Q2 2021, adjusted EBITDA is defined by the Company as GAAP net income excluding depreciation and amortization, interest and other income (expense), income taxes, stock-based compensation expense, acquisition related expenses, non-cash charges related to goodwill impairment and changes in the fair value of contingent consideration associated with the Company’s recent acquisitions as a result of the COVID pandemic, and non-cash product rationalization charges.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS

Adjusted net income is defined by the Company as GAAP net income excluding acquisition related expenses, inclusive of the impact of purchase accounting, on a tax effected basis, and the non-cash product rationalization charges. In the context of adjusted net income, the impact of purchase accounting includes amortization of inventory step up and intangible assets recorded as part of purchase accounting for acquisition transactions. The amortized assets contribute to revenue generation, and the amortization of such assets will recur in future periods until such assets are fully amortized. These assets include the estimated fair value of certain identified assets acquired in acquisitions in 2020 and beyond, including in-process research and development, developed technology, customer relationships and acquired tradenames. As a result of COVID, the Company is also specifically excluding the impacts of goodwill impairment charges and changes in the fair value of contingent consideration associated with the acquisition transactions, each on a tax effected basis. Adjusted diluted EPS is defined by the Company as GAAP diluted EPS excluding acquisition related expenses and the impact of purchase accounting, each on a tax-adjusted per share basis, and non-cash product rationalization charges. Again, the Company is also specifically excluding the impacts of goodwill impairment charges and changes in the fair value of contingent consideration associated with recent acquisition transactions, each on a tax effected basis if applicable.

A reconciliation of adjusted gross profit to gross profit (and the associated adjusted gross margin calculation), adjusted EBITDA to net income, adjusted net income to net income and adjusted diluted EPS to diluted EPS, the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, is shown in the tables at the end of this release.
