Bacterin Announces First Quarter 2013 Revenue of $8.6 Million

First Quarter 2013 Highlights:

  • Revenue increased 11% year over year, to approximately $8.6 million, and increased 6% over reported revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012
  • Loss from operations decreased 3% compared to the first quarter of 2012, to approximately $(1.2) million, and decreased 65% compared to the loss from operations in the fourth quarter of 2012

BELGRADE, Mont.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Bacterin International Holdings, Inc. (NYSE MKT: BONE), a leader in the development of revolutionary bone graft material and coatings for medical applications, today reported its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013. The Company reported revenues of $8.6 million and a net loss for the first quarter of approximately $1.7 million, or ($0.04) per common share, compared to a net loss of approximately $1.0 million, or ($0.03) per common share, reported during the same period in 2012.


Revenue for the first quarter was 8.6 million, up 11% compared to approximately $7.8 million for the same period during 2012. The increase was primarily attributed to a new sales agreement with a large U.S. distributor that contributed $1.3 million during the first quarter of 2013.

"This was a solid quarter for the business despite the challenges we faced," said John Gandolfo, Interim Co-Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of Bacterin International. "After increased competition in the marketplace at the end of 2012, we were able to continue our revenue growth by implementing certain strategic sales initiatives during the first quarter. This has allowed us to adjust our sales approach and adapt to this evolving environment. As a result, we have been making progress in overcoming factors that have been impeding our sales growth. We will continue to focus on large corporate accounts that understand our product's value proposition as well as continuing to penetrate our core hospital accounts."

Gross Profit

For the first quarter of 2013, gross profit was $5.5 million, a decrease of 7% from $5.9 million in the first quarter of 2012. Gross margins for the period were 64%, which compares to gross margins of 76% reported for the same period last year. Gross margins for the period improved sequentially from 56%, which was reported for the fourth quarter of 2012. Excluding the $1.3 million sale attributed to the Company's new sales agreement to a large U.S. distributor, gross margins would have been 67% for the first quarter of 2013.

Sales and Marketing Expenses

Sales and marketing expenses decreased to $3.8 million as compared to $4.1 million for the same period during 2012. As a percentage of revenues, selling and marketing expenses decreased to 44%, which compares to 53% reported for the first quarter of 2012. The decrease was primarily the result of more variable compensation paid to the direct sales force in 2013 compared to fixed salaries earned in the comparable period of 2012, as well as a lower corporate sales commission structure for direct sales representatives and independent distributors.

General and Administrative Expenses

In the first quarter, general and administrative expenses increased to $2.9 million for the period as compared to $2.6 million reported for the same period last year. As a percentage of revenues, general and administrative expenses were 33%, and were unchanged when compared with the first quarter 2012.


EBITDA for the first quarter of 2013 was a loss of $1.1 million, compared to a loss of $0.5 million in the first quarter of 2012. Mr. Gandolfo further commented, "If we are successful in achieving the 2013 revenue guidance of $38 to $40 million and the expense reductions we announced on our 2012 year end earnings call, we believe we would generate positive operating income as well as positive EBITDA for the year."

Financial Liquidity

Cash and cash equivalents and net accounts receivable, were $9.3 million on March 31, 2013, compared to $12.1 million on December 31, 2012.

Kent Swanson, Chairman of Bacterin International added, "With the recent departure of Guy Cook as CEO and Chairman, the board and senior management team remain committed to hiring a proven and commercially sophisticated CEO who will continue to drive our revenue growth and the Company toward profitability. Morale throughout the company is high and our products continue to be viewed positively by our customer base, which gives us confidence in achieving our goals."

About the Presentation of EBITDA

EBITDA is not a financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income or any other financial measures so calculated and presented, nor as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. The company defines EBITDA as net income/(loss) from operations before depreciation, amortization and non-cash stock-based compensation. Other companies (including competitors) may define EBITDA differently. The company presents EBITDA because management believes it to be an important supplemental measure of performance that is commonly used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. Management also uses this information internally for forecasting and budgeting. It may not be indicative of the historical operating results of Bacterin nor is it intended to be predictive of potential future results. Investors should not consider EBITDA in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the company's results as reported under GAAP. See "GAAP to non-GAAP Reconciliation" below for further information on this non-GAAP measure.
