MiMedx Group Announces First Quarter Results

MARIETTA, Ga., April 27, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — MiMedx Group, Inc.(MDXG 1.49, +0.14, +10.37%) announced today its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2010.

The Company recorded its first significant revenues during the quarter ended March 31, 2010. First quarter of 2010 revenues were $114,900, compared to no revenues reported for the first quarter of 2009. The Company reported a net loss from operations of $2.6M, which represents an 11% improvement as compared to the same period in 2009. This improvement also includes an incremental investment of $273,009 for sales & marketing expense related to building the Company’s global sales distribution network and extensive sales training program. The net loss for the first quarter of 2010 was $3.1M, or $.06 per diluted common share, which includes a non-cash interest expense charge of $499,610 for the unamortized discount on the conversion of the 3% Convertible Senior Secured Notes into common stock as of March 31, 2010. In 2009, the net loss was $2.9M for the first quarter, or $0.07 per diluted common share. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA)* were a loss of $2.3M for the first quarter of 2010, compared to a loss of $2.6M reported in the first quarter of 2009. Total long term debt decreased $3.0M as compared to December 31, 2009, as a result of the aforementioned conversion of notes payable to common stock. Stockholder’s equity as of March 31, 2010, was $7.4M as compared to $6.1M as of December 31, 2010.

The Company’s first quarter revenues and net loss were in line with expectations and the Company’s business plan. The results included the impact of production ramp-up and product launch costs for the HydroFix(TM) Vaso Shield and Spine Shield products, as well as planned investments in animal studies that were undertaken to facilitate FDA clearance of several new products. During the quarter, the Company also closed its Tampa-based administrative offices and consolidated all accounting and investor relations functions into its Marietta, Georgia headquarters.

Parker H. “Pete” Petit, Chairman and CEO, stated, “We are pleased with our first quarter results, especially in the development of our first significant revenues in the United States and internationally. During the quarter, we initiated the “soft launch” of our HydroFix(TM) Vaso Shield in the United States and our HydroFix(TM) Spine Shield internationally. Both products contributed to our first quarter revenues.

We were also pleased with the progress we made during the quarter in reducing our manufacturing costs. We successfully implemented reductions in the costs of manufacturing our HydroFix(TM) Vaso Shield and Spine Shield, and also made good progress in our preproduction environment by reducing costs for our collagen fiber. Since both of these products are expected to have high gross profit margins as sales develop, we are optimistic about the positive profit impact these cost reductions will have in future periods. ”

The Company also reported its progress in signing contractual agreements with numerous sales representative organizations in the United States and in identifying a number of foreign distributors that have a high level of interest in marketing the Company’s products. William C. “Bill” Taylor, President and COO said, “We have been able to attract quality rep groups in the U.S. because they see the opportunity with our currently available HydroFix(TM) products and our soon to be available CollaFix(TM) products that are manufactured from our collagen fibers. In the international market, the distributors are enthusiastic about our HydroFix(TM) Spine Shield product line.”

The Company further reported that it has offered holders of certain of its warrants to convert their warrants into common stock, on or before May 1, 2010, at a discounted cash exercise price. Petit added, “At this time, our expectations are that we will raise approximately $4 million through this offer.”

“We are encouraged relative to the progress of our business, and we believe we are off to a good start in 2010. We look forward to communicating our results throughout the year,” concluded Petit.

MiMedx management will host a live broadcast of its first quarter conference call on April 27, 2010, beginning at 10:30 a.m. Eastern Time. A listen-only simulcast of the MiMedx Group conference call will be available online at the Company’s website or at A 30-day online replay will be available approximately one hour following the conclusion of the live broadcast.
