Viemed Healthcare, Inc. (the “Company” or “Viemed”) (NASDAQ:VMD and TSX: VMD.TO), a home medical equipment supplier and the nation’s largest independent provider of ventilation that provides post-acute respiratory care services, announced today that it has reported its financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021.

Operational highlights (all dollar amounts are USD):

  • Total net revenues for the current quarter were $27.4 million and included $1.1 million of net revenue for contact and vaccine tracing services and product sales related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Net revenues attributable to the Company’s core business for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 were $26.3 million, a new Company record, and an increase of $3.1 million or 13% over core revenues reported for the comparable quarter ended June 30, 2020.
  • Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 totaled $1.6 million, compared to $19.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. In the prior year comparable period, net income included an income tax benefit of $6.6 million and $19.7 million of COVID-19 response sales and services during the height of the pandemic. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2021 totaled $3.3 million, compared to $23.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 totaled $6.8 million and Adjusted EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2021 totaled $12.3 million. A reconciliation of reported non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures can be found in the tables accompanying this press release.
  • The Company had a cash balance of $31.2 million at June 30, 2021 ($31.0 million at December 31, 2020) and an overall working capital balance of $28.7 million at June 30, 2021 ($24.2 million at December 31, 2020). Total long-term debt as of June 30, 2021 was $5.7 million ($6.6 million at December 31, 2020).
  • The Company grew its ventilator patient count to 8,103, a 5% increase over the March 31, 2021 ventilator patient count.
  • The Company expects to generate net revenues attributable to its core business of approximately $26.8 million to $27.8 million during the third quarter of 2021. While the Company’s COVID-19 response related business has slowed during the current year, the Company is continuing to pursue additional sales and support revenues and estimates third quarter 2021 revenues of approximately $0.5 million to $0.8 million related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Total revenues for the third quarter of 2021 are estimated to be approximately $27.3 million to $28.6 million.

“I am extremely pleased with our Company’s ability to grow our active patient count across all of our major product lines during the current quarter,” said Casey Hoyt, Viemed’s CEO. “We have once again posted extremely strong financial results, and our adherence to always putting the patient first continues to drive strong growth trends throughout the country. We continue to see treating respiratory patients in the home as a major growth segment and are seeing new patient onboardings increase as we continue to navigate through the pandemic.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release refers to “Adjusted EBITDA” which is a non-GAAP financial measure that does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. GAAP. The Company’s presentation of this financial measure may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization, unrealized (gain) loss on warrant conversion liability and stock-based compensation. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA provides helpful information with respect to the Company’s operating performance as viewed by management, including a view of the Company’s business that is not dependent on the impact of the Company’s capitalization structure and items that are not part of the Company’s day-to-day operations. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA (i) to compare the Company’s operating performance on a consistent basis, (ii) to calculate incentive compensation for the Company’s employees, (iii) for planning purposes, including the preparation of the Company’s internal annual operating budget, and (iv) to evaluate the performance and effectiveness of the Company’s operational strategies. Accordingly, management believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information in understanding and evaluating the Company’s operating performance in the same manner as management. The following table is a reconciliation of net income (loss), the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure, to Adjusted EBITDA, on a historical basis for the periods indicated:

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP. It is not a measurement of the Company’s financial performance under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to revenue or net income, as applicable, or any other performance measures derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other businesses. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s operating results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the impact of certain cash charges resulting from matters the Company considers not to be indicative of ongoing operations; and other companies in the Company’s industry may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.
