Management Commentary on Results

Parker H. “Pete” Petit, Chairman and CEO, said, “We had a very good quarter with revenue in the upper range of our guidance. Our nine month revenue of $135.5 million was a 72% increase over 2014, and our third quarter revenue grew by 46% to $49 million, compared to an exceptional third quarter of 2014. The third quarter marked our 16th straight quarter of meeting or exceeding our revenue guidance and our 15th consecutive quarter of recording positive Adjusted EBITDA*. Our gross margin is again increasing with third quarter gross margin of 90%, up three percentage points from 87% in the first quarter of this year. Our Wound Care revenue grew by 37% over the third quarter of 2014. Our Surgical, Sports Medicine and OEM revenue, our other revenue category, grew by 77% over last year’s third quarter. We continued to gain strong momentum in the growth of our revenue from health plans, Medicare and Medicaid with third quarter revenue from commercial accounts increasing by 71% over 2014. During the quarter, we added over 350 new commercial/non-government customers. Adding to the fact that both our third quarter revenue and EPS exceeded our analyst consensus estimates, I would say that is strong performance.”

Petit added, “We announced at our Analyst Day meeting that we would release our 2016 guidance following our Board meeting in mid-December. That said, I think we can safely say that management is comfortable with the consensus 2016 revenue and EBIT given by our analysts.”

Bill Taylor, President and COO, stated, “We continue to see increased demand for our mesh configuration and the additional sizes we introduced to the market early this year. With the expiration of the pass-through status for EpiFix® Medicare patients, the lower cost competitive grafts in the market place were predicted to gain in utilization and negatively impact our sales volume. Our strategy was to implement a proactive plan to protect against these lower cost grafts. The mesh configuration and additional sizes have more than answered this threat and allowed us to continue our impressive growth in market share and expanded product utilization, while preserving and improving our gross margins. We are very pleased with the results of this strategy. ”

“Starting in the fourth quarter, we have again accelerated the pace of expansion of our sales force. During the next three months, we anticipate that an additional 30 to 40 very experienced sales professionals will be added. All of our sales verticals, surgical, orthopedic/spine and wound care, will be involved in this next wave of expansion,” continued Taylor.

“We continued to make significant strides during the third quarter in gaining coverage from additional commercial health plans and Medicaid programs. During the quarter, we added an additional 1.9 million covered lives from five new commercial plans, including two additional Blue Cross/Blue Shield plans. By quarter’s end, 161.7 million covered commercial lives, 36 million Medicare and 49.1 million Medicaid beneficiaries had insurance coverage provided for our allografts,” added Taylor.

“We recently announced a three-year $50 million senior secured revolving credit facility with a group of lenders led by Bank of America Merrill Lynch. The revolving credit facility provides...
