InfuSystem Holdings, Inc. Reports Higher Fourth Quarter 2012 Revenues and Second Straight Quarterly Profit
Company Improves Liquidity Position
MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- InfuSystem Holdings, Inc. (NYSE MKT: INFU) ("InfuSystem" or the "Company"), a leading national provider of infusion pumps and related services for the healthcare industry in the United States, today reported its second consecutive quarter of profitability in the fourth quarter ending December 31, 2012.
Net income in the fourth quarter was $0.2 million, equal to $0.01 per diluted share, compared to a $0.8 million net loss, or $0.04 loss per diluted share, in the prior year period. For the full year ended December 31, 2012, the Company's net loss was $1.5 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, versus a net loss of $45.4 million, or $2.16 per diluted share, in 2011. The prior- year period included a $67.6 million asset impairment charge.
Gross profit for the three months ending December 31, 2012, was $12.0 million, up 48% from $8.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Gross profit for the full year 2012 was $42.9 million, an increase of 21% compared to $35.4 million in 2011.
Revenues in the fourth quarter were $16.2 million, up 16% from $14.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Total revenues for the year ended December 31, 2012, were $58.8 million, an 8% improvement from $54.6 million in 2011. The increase in revenues is primarily related to the addition of larger customers, increased penetration into existing customer accounts, and the resolution of the oncology drug shortage from 2011. Also, during the fourth quarter of 2012, a major group of third party payors revised their claim processing guidelines that affected all durable medical equipment providers, which pushed some claims to be billed at higher out-of-network rates directly to patients.
SG&A increased to $10.4 million from $8.8 million, in addition to other expenses of $1.2 million compared with $0.5 million of other income a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA for the latest quarter was $3.8 million, up from the $1.5 million for the prior-year period, as adjusted on a comparable basis.
"We are very pleased with our improved fourth quarter performance and fiscal year-over-year growth for the Company," said Dilip Singh, Interim Chief Executive Officer. "The Company has accumulated annualized cost-savings of approximately $1.6 million since the current management team took control in April of 2012. That, combined with our securing a new debt facility during the fourth quarter, has helped restore the Company's liquidity and create a far stronger balance sheet. Equally important, we have generated sufficient momentum to increase the number of third-party payor relationships and expand our provider footprint while delivering best in class service and patient satisfaction. Our efforts are now clearly focused on sustaining long-term growth," Singh added.
Gross profit for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $42.9 million, an increase of 21% compared to $35.4 million in the prior year. It represented 73% of revenues in the current year compared to 65% in the prior year. The increase in the gross margin as a percentage of revenue in 2012 was primarily related to the increase in rental revenue, specifically third party billings, which generally have a higher gross profit margin.
Selling and marketing expenses were $9.9 million compared to $9.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. The increase in selling and marketing expenses is primarily related to expenses incurred by the increase in associated revenues as well as increased retention and travel costs. Compared to the prior year, these expenses remained consistent at 17% of revenues.
During the year ended December 31, 2012, general and administrative expenses were $23.1 million, compared to $18.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. General and administrative expenses have increased from 33% to 39% of revenues for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to the same period in the prior year. The increase was primarily due to an increase in professional service costs related to the Concerned Stockholder Group. Additional legal, accounting and outside service fees of $2.2 million were incurred during the year relating to this matter and the related early extinguishment of debt; severance payments for the former CEO amounted to $1.0 million; $0.6 million was recorded for retention payments to key employees during this ongoing matter; and we incurred $0.6 million associated with our decision to evaluate potential strategic alternatives.
Additional increases were mainly attributed to an increase in finance and accounting staff and several other general and administrative accounts. These costs were partially offset by the reversal of previously recognized stock compensation expense of $1.4 million.
Adjusted EBITDA was $13.1 million for the latest fiscal year. This compares to 2011's adjusted EBITDA, adjusted on a comparable basis, of $10.3 million. The Company utilizes Adjusted EBITDA as a means to measure its operating performance. A reconciliation from Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, to net income can be found in the appendix.
Net cash provided by operations for fiscal 2012 was $5.5 million, down from the $6.7 million for the prior year. This decrease is mainly attributed to higher accounts receivable levels due to the higher revenue in the fourth quarter of 2012. As of December 31, 2012, we had cash and cash equivalents of $2.3 million and $4.7 million of availability on the revolving line-of-credit compared to $0.8 million and $4.9 million of availability on the revolving line-of-credit at December 31, 2011. This increase is due to the new credit facility and better cash management during the year.
The Company will conduct a conference call for investors on Thursday, March 28, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time to discuss fourth quarter performance and results. Dilip Singh, Interim Chief Executive Officer, and Jonathan P. Foster, Chief Financial Officer, will discuss the Company's financial performance and answer questions from the financial community.
