The onset of novel coronavirus disease (“COVID-19”)  materially impacted the industry and Misonix’s business in the third and fourth quarters of fiscal 2020 as hospitals were required to postpone elective procedures in order to treat patients effected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
On July 10, 2020, the Company pre-announced its fourth quarter 2020 revenue results for the three-month period ended June 30, 2020.
Fourth quarter fiscal 2020 revenue increased 40.6% to $13.7 million, compared to $9.8 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019. On a pro forma basis, assuming Misonix had acquired Solsys for the full fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, total revenue for fiscal fourth quarter 2020 decreased 21.6%, including pro forma:
•  Domestic revenue decline of 13.6%
•  International revenue decline of 52.6%
Full fiscal 2020 revenue increased 60.8% to $62.5 million, compared to $38.8 million in full year fiscal 2019. On a pro forma basis, assuming Misonix had acquired Solsys for the full year fiscal 2019, total revenue for full year 2020 increased 8.6%, including pro forma:
•  Domestic revenue growth of 15.3%
•  International revenue decline of 12.2%
Gross profit percentage on sales for the fiscal fourth quarter was 68.8%, compared with 69.6% in the prior fiscal year comparable quarter, while full year fiscal 2020 gross margin was 70.0%, compared to 70.2% for the prior full year period.
Operating expenses increased $7.8 million during the fiscal fourth quarter of 2020 as compared with the fiscal fourth quarter of 2019 and increased by $28.4 million for the full fiscal year 2020, compared to the prior full year period, resulting from the acquisition of Solsys Medical.
For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, operating expenses declined $0.9 million, or 5.3% from the third quarter of fiscal 2020 as a result of the Company’s cost reduction efforts.
Net loss for the fiscal fourth quarter of 2020 was $8.5 million, or a loss of $0.50 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $2.3 million, or a loss of $0.25 per share, in the prior year comparable period. On a full year basis, net loss was $17.4 million for fiscal 2020, or a loss of $1.19 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $7.4 million, or a loss of $0.79 per diluted share for fiscal 2019.
In January 2020, Misonix completed an underwritten public offering yielding net proceeds to the Company of $32.5 million, through the issuance of 1,868,750 shares of common stock at $18.50 per share.Stavros Vizirgianakis, President and Chief Executive Officer of Misonix stated, “Misonix’s 2020 fiscal fourth quarter and full year financial performance is consistent with the preliminary results we announced in early July and reflects an improvement in domestic procedural volumes during May and June and continued strong sales for our next generation Nexus platform. While the COVID-19 pandemic impacted the global healthcare industry during the second half of our fiscal year, our solid execution combined with contributions from the September 2019 acquisition of Solsys Medical enabled us to achieve year-over-year revenue growth of 40.6% in the fourth quarter and 60.8% for the full fiscal year 2020, while maintaining healthy gross margins.“To address the ongoing economic impact of COVID-19 across both our domestic and international markets, we continued to optimize cash preservation in order to maintain the maximum financial flexibility. In this regard, during the three-month period, we meaningfully reduced operating expenses and corporate overhead on a quarterly sequential basis in order to prioritize initiatives focused on revenue generation as we return to normalized operations, including inventory and procurement management, sales force training and development, and new product investments.“As certain effects of the pandemic on our industry subsided, we saw a pattern of month over month improvement in our sales data from May to June, and an encouraging trend into July. Although the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on our industry remain uncertain, we are encouraged by early signs of stabilization across our geographic footprint, in particular on the domestic front. At present, we remain focused on driving increased sales productivity and broadening the market penetration of the combined company’s wound and surgical products in operating rooms and hospital outpatient facilities across our markets.“We believe the safety, efficacy and value that our leading ultrasonic surgical and wound products offer hospitals and outpatient centers, combined with the actions we have taken over the last year to drive efficiencies across our business, position Misonix to leverage the many opportunities to support our goals for growth and enhancement of long-term shareholder value. Looking ahead, we remain confident that our strategic go-to-market initiatives and the active management of our cost structure and balance sheet will enable us to overcome the near-term challenges and address pent-up and new patient demand. I want to thank our employees for their resilience, dedication, and exceptional work as they have gone above and beyond to serve healthcare practitioners and patients under the most challenging of circumstances over the past several months.”Sales Performance Supplemental Data (unaudited)Joe Dwyer, Chief Financial Officer, added, “While we are pleased with our ability to generate fiscal fourth quarter and full year 2020 product revenue growth as a result of the Solsys acquisition, our top-line results were not able to fully offset the overall impact of COVID-19 on our business during the three- and twelve-month period ended June 30. As a result, Misonix reported a net loss for the fiscal 2020 fourth quarter and full year of $8.5 million and $17.4 million, respectively.
“Total fiscal fourth quarter operating expenses increased $7.8 million to $17.0 million, reflecting a full quarter of incremental expenses related to the September 2019 acquisition of Solsys Medical as well as an increase in bad debt reserve for our Chinese distributor due to the impact of COVID-19. On a quarterly sequential basis, our various expense reduction initiatives resulted in fourth quarter operating expense savings of approximately $0.9 million or 5.3%.“At the onset of the pandemic, Misonix took immediate actions to adapt our business to operate in the current environment and to preserve liquidity in order to position the Company best for long-term success as we return to normalized operations. As a result, we ended fiscal 2020 with $38.0 million of cash on hand, an expanded revolving credit facility and a current leverage ratio of 3.7 times. In addition, we have taken proactive steps to become a leaner and more efficient organization, with the goal of growing our leadership position across our addressable markets. “As we enter fiscal 2021, we believe that we are well prepared to meet demand arising from an expected recovery from the effects of COVID-19 and we remain encouraged by the long-term growth trajectory of our products across our surgical and wound divisions. As conditions continue to evolve, the precise depth and duration of COVID-19’s impact on our operations remains uncertain and as a result Misonix is not providing fiscal year 2021 financial guidance at this time.”Fiscal Fourth Quarter 2020 Conference CallMisonix will host a conference call and webcast today, Thursday, September 3, 2020, at 4:30 p.m. ET to discuss its financial results and operations and host a question and answer session.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The Company has presented the following non-GAAP financial measures in this press release: Pro-forma revenue, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. The Company has presented pro forma revenue in this press release, which is a non-GAAP financial measurement. The Company acquired the operations of Solsys Medical at the end of its first quarter ended September 30, 2019. The Company has presented pro forma revenue to show revenue on a comparable basis as if Solsys had been acquired at the beginning of the comparative periods presented. The Company defines EBITDA as the net income (loss) as reported under GAAP, plus depreciation and amortization expense, interest expense and income tax expense (benefit). The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA plus non-cash stock compensation expense, M&A transaction fees, bad debt expense and engineering costs associated with its development of Nexus, its next generation platform, which we do not expect to recur as the project was completed in the second half of fiscal 2019.
We present these non-GAAP measures because we believe these measures are useful indicators of our operating performance. Our management uses these non-GAAP measures principally as a measure of our operating performance and believes that these measures are useful to investors because they are frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate the operating performance of companies in our industry. We also believe that these measures are useful to our management and investors as a measure of comparative operating performance from period to period.Misonix, Inc. and Subsidiaries
