CHESTER, N.Y., May 04, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Repro Med Systems, Inc. dba KORU Medical Systems (NASDAQ: KRMD) ("KORU Medical" or the "Company"), a leading medical technology company focused on the development, manufacturing, and commercialization of innovative and easy-to-use specialty infusion solutions that improve quality of life for patients, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022.

Highlights:

  • Year-over-year net sales growth of 15% to $6.2 million, marking the second consecutive quarter of double-digit growth

  • Received 4th FDA clearance in 5 months, a 510(k) clearance for use of the FreedomEdge® infusion pump to deliver EMPAVELI® and Aspaveli®, a prescription medicine used to treat adults with a rare disease called paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH)

  • Expanded novel therapies pipeline in new drug categories, including a Phase II clinical trial, and expanded an innovation development agreement with a large SCIg customer

  • Signed distribution agreement in Germany, with an increased focus on international markets

  • Announced Brian Case, 20+ year experienced R&D veteran, as Chief Technology Officer

"I am extremely proud of our team in delivering strong first quarter results as we continue to execute our strategic growth plan to become a broader drug delivery provider. A rebounding U.S. immunoglobulin market is encouraging, and we are successfully driving a dual focus on increasing revenues in our core subcutaneous Ig business through expanded label indications and a growing prefill market, while expanding the Freedom platform into new drug areas," said Linda Tharby, KORU Medical's President and CEO. "We also continue to build the team's capability with the hiring of Brian Case as our Chief Technology Officer, a proven experienced leader. I am very excited for the future of the company as we drive long-term growth, create value for customers and shareholders, and increasingly progress our strategic plan."

Net sales for the first quarter of 2022 were $6.2 million, compared to $5.4 million in the prior year period, a 15% increase. Domestic core was up 13.2% due to growth in pumps and consumables driven by an overall increase in the subcutaneous immunoglobulin market, as well as our key growth initiatives, including prefills and label expansions. Novel Therapies sales were $0.4 million for the quarter, including recognition of initial non-recurring engineering service ("NRE") revenues from a pre-commercialization innovation development agreement with a large subcutaneous immunoglobulin (SCIg) customer, which is expected to continue to generate revenue through 2022. International core was down by 8.6% year-over-year, due to quarterly buying pattern changes of a few smaller customers.

Gross profit increased by $0.4 million, or 12.1%, in the first quarter of 2022, while gross margin decreased by 150 basis points to 58.0%. The decline in gross margin was largely due to higher NRE revenues from the innovation effort described above. Also contributing to lower margins was higher manufacturing costs in our core business from increasing raw material and labor costs, partially offset by increased price and mix.

Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2022 were $6.7 million, compared to $5.4 million for the same period in 2021. The increase in operating expenses is due to strategic investments in research and development, new hires to support business development and commercialization, and quality and regulatory.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2022 was $2.5 million, or $(0.06) per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1.3 million, or ($0.03) per diluted share for the same period of 2021. Net loss included a tax benefit of $0.6 million for the first quarter of 2022. On a non-GAAP basis, adjusted diluted earnings per share was ($0.05) compared to $0.00 in the same period of 2021.

Assumptions and Outlook for Full Year 2022

KORU Medical's outlook for full year 2022 reflects numerous assumptions that could affect its business, based on the information management has as of this date, which includes assumptions regarding the continued recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic related to new SCIg patient starts, plasma supply, clinical trial activity, labor and supply price increases, and supply chain impacts. Management will discuss its outlook and several of its assumptions on its first quarter 2022 earnings call.

For full year 2022, KORU Medical reaffirms expectations that the SCIg market will recover to a high single digit rate. Assuming this market growth holds, the Company expects full year 2022 revenue to be in the range of $26.5 to $27.0 million (previously $26.0 to $27.0 million).

The Company reiterates its guidance to exit the year at a 60% gross margin run rate. Additionally, Q1 2022 supply chain disruption impacts, which are not expected to recur, have resulted in unfavorable manufacturing variances, which will be recognized in the second quarter of 2022.

The Company has no further updates to prior guidance.

Conference Call and Webcast Details

The Company will host a live conference call and webcast to discuss these results and provide a corporate update on Wednesday, May 4, 2022, at 4:30 PM ET.

Reorganization Charges. We have excluded the effect of reorganization charges in calculating our non-GAAP measures. In 2021 we incurred significant expenses in connection with the departure and replacement of our chief executive officer and the recruiting of two new board members, which we would not have otherwise incurred in periods presented as part of our continuing operations. In 2022 we incurred further severance expense related to the reorganization of the leadership team, which we would not have otherwise incurred in periods presented as part of continuing operations.

Manufacturing Initiative Expenses. We have excluded the effect of expenses related to creating manufacturing efficiencies, in calculating our non-GAAP measures. We incurred expenses in connection with these initiatives which we would not have otherwise incurred in periods presented as part of our continuing operations. We expect to incur related expenses for the next nine to fifteen months.

Stock-based Compensation Expense. We have excluded the effect of stock-based compensation expense in calculating our non-GAAP measures. We record non-cash compensation expense related to grants of options for executives, employees and consultants, and grants of restricted shares to our board of directors. Depending upon the size, timing and the terms of the grants, the non-cash compensation expense may vary significantly but will recur in future periods. Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2021 included stock-based compensation expense of $0.4 million related to the departure and replacement of our chief executive officer. This expense is included in Reorganization Stock-based Compensation Expense in calculating Adjusted Diluted EPS.
