Third Quarter 2021 Financial Summary

Recent Operational Highlights

  • Launched Anika’s WristMotion® Total Wrist Arthroplasty System at the American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH) annual meeting. The WristMotion® Total Wrist Arthroplasty System is designed to preserve natural motion and maximize stability providing an advanced solution for wrist arthritis.
  • Received additional 510(k) clearance for Tactoset® Injectable Bone Substitute for hardware augmentation. This 510(k) clearance expands the capability of Tactoset for augmenting suture anchor fixation during surgical procedures.
  • Attended first major industry event, American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons annual meeting, in August 2021 showcasing the full integrated Anika portfolio.
  • Continued to strengthen Anika’s leadership team with the addition of Anne Nunes as Vice President of Operations bringing industry leading expertise to our global manufacturing and supply chain organization.
  • Anika’s Board of Directors appointed 35-year industry veteran Sheryl Conley as a new independent director bringing deep orthopedic industry commercial leadership experience to the Board.
  • Executed on planned operational initiative to roll-out Anika’s existing global ERP system, SAP, to legacy Parcus and Arthrosurface operations, providing additional operational capabilities and synergies in support of the Company’s growth strategy.

“We continue to make progress in our transformational strategy as Anika establishes itself in the joint preservation and restoration markets,” Cheryl R. Blanchard, Ph.D., Anika’s President and CEO, commented. “We are pleased with our third quarter results despite the continued headwinds and ongoing unpredictability due to COVID, and more recently the Delta variant. We are seeing the demand for our products in the ambulatory surgical center as a significant opportunity as we continue to invest in expanding our product portfolio for minimally invasive joint preservation treatments. We remain laser focused on our long-term strategy to double our revenues by 2024, off our 2019 base despite near term COVID challenges.”

Fiscal 2021 Outlook

The Company expects its overall revenue for fiscal year 2021 to grow 9-11% year-over year, compared with previous guidance of 11-14%, primarily due to the increased impact of COVID. This annual revenue growth is driven by Joint Preservation and Restoration growth in the upper-teens percent range with mid-single digit growth in Joint Pain Management. Other revenue is expected to grow 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 additional variants, vaccine distribution, 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, November 4, 2021 at 5:00 pm ET. The conference call can be accessed by dialing 1-866-437-2398 (toll-free domestic) or 1-856-344-9206 (international) and providing the conference ID number 8047540. A live audio webcast will be available in the Investor Relations section of Anika’s website, www.anika.com.

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 Q3 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 Q3 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.
