Amedica Corporation Reports Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results

Year-to-Date Operational Cash Burn Improved by 55% Year-Over-Year

SALT LAKE CITY, UT-(Marketwired - Aug 11, 2016) - Amedica Corporation (NASDAQ: AMDA), a company that develops and commercializes silicon nitride ceramics as a biomaterial platform, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016.

Recent Company Highlights

  • Decreased year-to-date operational cash burn by 55%
  • Completed $12.7 million public offering and reduced total debt principal balance to $10 million
  • Submitted response to FDA in support of its application seeking clearance to commercialize its composite cervical interbody fusion device
  • Featured unique silicon nitride attributes in several leading industry events and publications
  • Signed an additional joint development agreement with an implant designer and distributor of dental technologies

"Despite the decrease in commercial sales this quarter, we are confident with our commercial sales strategy targeted at adding new surgeons and distributors and expanding our sales into new territories," said Dr. Sonny Bal, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We expect that the solid foundation of scientific and clinical data that we have now built will also help expand spine sales and further strengthen our balance sheet."

"In the product pipeline, we have added a new OEM partner with whom we're exploring the application of our silicon nitride ceramic for use in dental implants; this announcement comes after recent evidence that silicon nitride is effective against bacteria that cause gingivitis. We believe that our silicon nitride ceramic is the best-characterized biomaterial available and offers a compelling set of advantages for a variety of medical applications. Even as we explore mid-term opportunities with external partners, we will remain focused on driving our commercial sales," added Dr. Bal.

Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results

Total product revenue was $4.0 million in the second quarter of 2016 as compared to $4.8 million in the same period of 2015, a decrease of $0.8 million, or 16%. This decrease was due to lower private label sales during the quarter and weaker than expected commercial sales in a key geographic region during the implementation of the Company's commercial sales expansion strategy. We expect that our commercial sales expansion strategy will be substantially completed during the third quarter with benefits expected to be realized during the fourth quarter of 2016 and into 2017. The decrease in revenue for the second quarter 2016 was also attributable, in part, to continued market pricing pressure and hospital vendor consolidation.

Cost of revenue decreased $0.3 million, or 25%, as compared to the same period in 2015. The decrease in cost of revenue was primarily due to the decline in product sales. Excluding the impact of excess or obsolete inventory for both periods, second quarter 2016 gross margins ended at 83% of total sales, as compared to 78% during the prior year period. The increase in gross margins as a percentage of sales is primarily attributable to lower private label sales, which have lower gross margins, and to a lesser extent, the impact of the medical device excise tax moratorium.

Operating expenses decreased $0.5 million, or 8%, as compared to the same period in 2015. This decline in operating expenses is primarily due to a decrease of $0.3 million in commissions as a result of decreased sales and a $0.2 million decrease in personnel related expenses.

Net loss for the second quarter 2016 was $5.1 million, compared to a net loss of $5.9 million in the prior-year period. The reduction in net loss was primarily the result of improved gross profit and decreases in operating costs and other expenses during the quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA, which is defined as earnings before deductions for interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, non-cash stock compensation expense, change in fair value of derivative liabilities, offering costs, loss on extinguishment of derivative liabilities and loss on extinguishment of debt for the second quarter 2016 was a loss of $1.9 million, compared to a loss of $2.0 million for the second quarter 2015.

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $5.2 million as of June 30, 2016. Operating cash burn decreased to $2.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016 as compared to $5.3 million the prior year period, or 55%. Total principal debt obligations were $12.1 million as of June 30, 2016, a decrease of $12.2 million from June 30, 2015.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

To supplement our consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive net loss which are presented in accordance with GAAP, we use certain non-GAAP measures of components of financial performance. Although not measures of financial performance under GAAP, "Adjusted EBITDA" and "Gross Margin Before deducting the Provision for Excess and Obsolete Inventory" are provided for the use of investors in understanding our operating results and are not prepared in accordance with, nor do they serve as alternatives to GAAP measures, and may be materially different from similar measures used by other companies. We define "Adjusted EBITDA" as our earnings before deductions for interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, change in fair value of derivative liabilities, and loss on extinguishment of debt. We define "Gross Margin Before Deducting the Provision for Excess and Obsolete Inventory" as our gross margin before deducting the provision for excess and obsolete inventory. While not a substitute for information prepared in accordance with GAAP, management believes that this information is helpful for investors to more easily understand our operating financial performance. Management also believes these measures may better enable an investor to form views of our potential financial performance in the future. These measures have limitations as analytical tools, and investors should not consider these measures in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results prepared in accordance with GAAP.
