Management Commentary on Revenue Results
Parker H. "Pete" Petit, Chairman and CEO, said, "We are pleased with our milestone of 16 straight quarters of meeting or exceeding our revenue guidance. In addition, our revenue exceeded the analyst consensus estimates and was in the upper range of our forecast. We are also now at 15 consecutive quarters of recording positive Adjusted EBITDA. During the quarter, we made certain adjustments regarding our network of distributors supporting our offerings for the surgical, orthopedic and spine market sectors. Revenue could have been even stronger if not for the short-term effect of these strategic steps in our distributor network. "
"During the quarter, we continued to gain very good momentum from our recently introduced new graft sizes and our mesh configuration. During the second quarter, we began to see improvement in our mix of small to large sizes to our prior levels. This improvement continued during the third quarter, and we anticipate this trend will continue," stated Bill Taylor, President and COO.
"We introduced a new product during the quarter, our OrthoFlo amniotic liquid offering. We will discuss this new offering, as well as our other future product introductions, at our October 13th Analyst Day Meeting. In addition to discussing new product introductions, we are looking forward to presenting to investors our strategic plans for 2016 and beyond, new clinical and scientific study results, our growth opportunities, our reimbursement progress, intellectual property updates, our operating efficiencies and a number of surgical case studies," added Petit.
$50 Million Credit Facility
The Company reported that it has entered into a new three-year $50 million senior secured revolving credit facility with a group of lenders led by Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Petit commented, "The facility may be used for general corporate purposes including new product introductions, clinical and scientific studies and strategic initiatives to expand the breadth of the organization."
Outlook for Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2015
The Company estimates fourth quarter of 2015 revenue to be in the range of $49.5 million to $52.5 million. With the fourth quarter estimates, the Company has narrowed the range of its previously published guidance for full year 2015, and now expects revenue to be in the range of $185 million to $188 million for full year 2015. Due to the number of new initiatives planned for 2016, full year guidance will be provided after the Company's Board of Directors meeting in Mid-December.
