Anika Reports Fourth Quarter and Year-End 2021 Financial Results

Fourth quarter revenue growth of 10% year-over-year despite COVID headwinds
Full-year 2021 revenue up 13% driven by strong growth in Joint Preservation and Restoration

BEDFORD, Mass., March 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Anika Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANIK), a global joint preservation company in early intervention orthopedics, today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2021.

Fourth Quarter 2021 Financial Summary

  • Revenue in the fourth quarter of 2021 was $35.8 million, 10% higher than prior year, compared with $32.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2020, due primarily to favorable order timing in OA Pain Management despite COVID headwinds
    • OA Pain Management1 revenue of $19.7 million, up 17%
    • Joint Preservation and Restoration revenue of $13.3 million, up 1%
    • Non-Orthopedic1 revenue of $2.8 million, up 5%
  • Gross margin was 51%, reflecting $1.8 million of acquisition-related expenses and $0.4 million of product rationalization charges. Adjusted gross margin2, excluding these charges, was 57%, primarily reflecting unfavorable volume, supply chain and staffing challenges, and related reserves.
  • Net loss for the fourth quarter was ($5.8) million, or ($0.40) per diluted share, compared to net loss of ($15.7) million, or ($1.10) per diluted share, in the prior year.
  • Adjusted net loss2 for the quarter was ($3.2) million, or ($0.23) per diluted share, compared to adjusted net income of $1.7 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, in the prior year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA2 loss was ($0.2) million, compared to adjusted EBITDA2 of $4.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2020.
  • Operating cash flow was $5.0 million; cash balance was $94.4 million.

Full Year 2021 Financial Summary

  • Revenue for fiscal 2021 increased 13% to $147.8 million, compared with $130.5 million in 2020 and above the guidance range of 9-11%, driven by growth in Joint Preservation and Restoration and continued recovery from the initial COVID impact in OA Pain Management
    • Joint Preservation and Restoration of $48.6 million, up 23%
    • OA Pain Management1 revenue of $89.5 million, up 8%
    • Non-Orthopedic1 revenue of $9.7 million, up 20% on last-time buys of legacy products
  • Gross margin for the year was 56%, reflecting $12.7 million of acquisition related expenses and $2.4 million of product rationalization charges. Adjusted gross margin2, excluding these charges, was 66%, primarily reflecting unfavorable volume, due in part to supply chain and staffing challenges.
  • Net income for the fiscal year was $4.1 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, compared to net loss of ($24.0) million, or ($1.69) per diluted share, in 2020. Net income was favorably impacted from a reduction in the fair value of contingent consideration of $17.0 million, net of tax, or $1.16 per diluted share. Adjusted net loss2 for the year was ($0.4) million, or ($0.02) per diluted share, compared to adjusted net income of $10.1 million, or $0.71 per diluted share in 2020.
  • Adjusted EBITDA2 for the fiscal year was $16.4 million, compared to $23.9 million in 2020
  • Full year operating cash flow was $9.0 million

1 OA Pain Management was previously referred to as Joint Pain Management; Non-Orthopedic was previously referred to as Other.
2 See description of non-GAAP financial information contained in this release.

“We were pleased with how we ended 2021 given the significant and unpredictable COVID-related market challenges.” Cheryl R. Blanchard, Ph.D., Anika’s President and CEO, commented. “With double-digit revenue growth in the fourth quarter, we ended the year with 13% revenue growth over fiscal year 2020, above our expectations. Even with the impact of the COVID variants during 2021, our Joint Preservation and Restoration business delivered 23% revenue growth for the year and our OA Pain Management business experienced above-market performance. We made significant progress on our operational transformation as we establish the foundation for our multi-year growth strategy.”

Dr. Blanchard continued, “Given the near-term realities of the ongoing global COVID-related environment, including reduced access to elective procedures and supply chain and staffing challenges, we expect market headwinds to continue throughout 2022. At the same time, we are focused on the large and growing market opportunity in front of us and executing on our strategy to leverage our core strengths in early intervention orthopedics to drive accelerated revenue and profitability over the coming years.”

Fiscal 2021 Business Highlights

  • Completed enrollment in Q4 2021 of the U.S. pilot clinical trial of Cingal, Anika’s combination viscosupplement / steroid product for OA pain management.
  • Market launch of Tactoset Injectable Bone Substitute for augmentation of suture anchor fixation in Q4 2021; this new indication allows surgeons to use Tactoset for hardware fixation due to insufficient bone quality, increasing pull-out strength of suture anchors.
  • Launched a focused effort to advance its ESG strategy in Q4 2021 by completing an in-depth “Materiality Assessment” validating key environmental, social and governance issues of greatest importance to stakeholders.
  • Market launch in Q3 2021 of WristMotion Total Wrist Arthroplasty (TWA) system focused on alleviating pain and restoring full range of motion for patients with arthritic wrist joints; WristMotion TWA, along with WristMotion Hemiarthroplasty System, provide surgeons with multiple innovative and bone preserving treatment options for different stages and severities of wrist arthritis.
  • Received 510(k) clearance in Q3 2021 for a reverse shoulder implant system; this clearance sets the stage for the development and expansion of the Company’s shoulder implant portfolio targeted for the ASC.
  • Rolled out Anika’s ERP system, SAP, to legacy Parcus and Arthrosurface operations in Q3 2021, providing additional operational capabilities in support of the Company’s growth strategy.
  • Key team additions in 2021, including Kevin Stone as VP and GM of Sports Medicine, Anne Nunes as VP of Operations and Sheryl Conley as new independent director, each bringing deep knowledge and decades of orthopedic industry experience, as well as the addition in early 2022 of Lisa Funiciello as VP of Human Resources.

Fiscal 2022 Outlook

In light of the ongoing global COVID-related environment, and its expected impact on elective procedures throughout fiscal 2022, the Company expects its overall revenue for fiscal year 2022 to be up low to mid-single digit percent compared with 2021. Revenue ranges by product family are:

  • Joint Preservation and Restoration up mid-single to low-double digit percent
  • OA Pain Management up low-single digit percent
  • Non-Orthopedic revenue down approximately 30% due largely to legacy product rationalization  

There remains volatility and uncertainty in the global market associated with the direct and indirect impacts of the COVID pandemic. The Company’s outlook for fiscal 2022 is subject to the changing dynamics associated with COVID including additional variants, vaccine distribution, staffing shortages, supply chain disruption, 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, Tuesday March 8, 2022 at 5:00 pm ET. The conference call can be accessed by dialing 1-800-437-2398 (toll-free domestic) or 1-856-344-9206 (international) and providing the conference ID number 1077520. A live audio webcast will be available in the Investor Relations section of Anika’s website, www.anika.com. A slide presentation with highlights from the conference call will be available in the Investor Relations section of the Anika website. 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 Q4 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 Q4 2021, adjusted EBITDA is defined by the Company as GAAP net income (loss) 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 (Loss) and Adjusted EPS

Adjusted net income (loss) 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 (loss), 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 (loss), adjusted net income (loss) to net income (loss) 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.
