iCAD Reports Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results

PowerLook Tomo Detection Version 2.0 Submitted for FDA Approval

Conference call today at 4:30 p.m. ET

NASHUA, N.H., Aug. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iCAD, Inc. (NASDAQ: ICAD), a global medical technology company providing innovative cancer detection and therapy solutions, today reported financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018.

Second Quarter 2018 Highlights:

  • Total revenue of $6.2 million, down 4% year-over-year
  • Gross profit of $4.8 million, or 78%
  • GAAP Net Loss of ($1.0) million, or ($0.06) per share
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA loss of ($0.3) million
  • Submitted PowerLook Tomo Detection Version 2.0 for FDA approval in May

“We made progress with our strategic plan which is reflected in our overall financial results for the second quarter,” said Ken Ferry, Chief Executive Officer of iCAD, Inc.  “After adjusting for discontinued businesses, specifically MRI software and skin subscription, revenues increased eight percent when compared to the second quarter of 2017.  In our Detection segment, while product revenues were essentially flat vs. Q2 of 2017, we saw continued momentum with PowerLook Tomo Detection, our first FDA approved A.I. product for the detection of breast cancer on 3D mammograms.  Our strategic decision to discontinue offering the subscription service model to customers in our skin brachytherapy business had a positive impact improving our financial performance in the quarter.  Also, product sales in the Therapy segment increased $600 thousand, or 110 percent, in the first six months of 2018 as compared to the first half of last year.” 

“In May, we submitted Version 2.0 of our PowerLook Tomo Detection software for FDA approval, a significant accomplishment for our Company.  Depending on the timing of receipt of FDA approval, we anticipate launching this product commercially in the U.S. in the second half of 2018,” continued Mr. Ferry.  “In addition, the first Version 2.0 systems have been installed at key reference centers in Europe, and we are seeing strong customer interest in this region.  We have also made significant progress with commercial efforts in the key European countries where we see the greatest potential for V2 sales.  Importantly, we believe that the Tomo product platform will be a significant growth driver for iCAD for years to come.”

“Our increased focus on capital sales in the Therapy business had a beneficial impact on margins, cash flow and reduced our cash burn.  Our total gross margins increased five basis points and our operating expenses decreased nine percent in the first six months of 2018 versus the corresponding period of last year.  In addition, our cash burn decreased to $1.6 million in the first half of 2018, as compared to $4.2 million1 in the first half of 2017,” concluded Mr. Ferry.

Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results
Revenue:  Total revenue for the second quarter of 2018 decreased 4% to $6.2 million from $6.4 million in the second quarter of 2017, reflecting a 20% increase in product revenue and a 21% decrease in service and supplies revenue.

Cancer Detection revenue, which includes revenue from our digital mammography, breast density, and CT CAD platforms, as well as the associated service and supplies revenue, for the second quarter of 2018, decreased $0.2 million, or 6%, to $4.0 million, as compared to $4.2 million in the same period in 2017.  The year-over-year Detection results were negatively impacted by the inclusion of $0.1 million in MRI Detection revenue in the second quarter of 2017.  The MRI assets were divested in the first quarter of 2017.  Excluding MRI revenue in both periods, second quarter 2018 cancer Detection revenues decreased $0.2 million, or 5%, from the second quarter of 2017.  Therapy revenue, which includes Xoft® Axxent® Electronic Brachytherapy System® product sales, as well as the associated service and supplies revenue, for the second quarter of 2018, was flat at $2.2 million as compared to the corresponding period of 2017, as a result of a 476% increase in Therapy product revenue, and a 29% decrease in service and supplies revenue.  During the first quarter of 2018, the Company ceased offering its subscription service model to skin brachytherapy customers.  Excluding Xoft skin subscription service revenues in both periods, second quarter 2018 Therapy revenues increased $0.7 million, or 46%, from the second quarter of 2017.  Total revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2018, excluding the impact of MRI and Xoft skin subscription service revenues, increased 8% to $6.1 million from $5.6 million in the second quarter of 2017.

Gross Profit:  Gross profit for the second quarter of 2018 was $4.8 million, or 78% of revenue, compared with $4.5 million, or 70% of revenue, for the second quarter of 2017.  The year-over-year increase in gross profit percentage was primarily due to incremental gross profit margin associated with the Company’s exit from the unprofitable Xoft skin subscription service business.

Operating Expenses:  Total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2018 decreased $1.4 million to $5.7 million from $7.1 million in the second quarter of 2017.  The decrease was due mainly to lower stock compensation and sales and marketing expense.

GAAP Net Loss:  Net loss for the second quarter of 2018 was ($1.0) million, or ($0.06) per share, compared with a net loss of ($2.6) million, or ($0.16) per share, for the second quarter of 2017.  The $1.6 million year-over-year improvement in net loss was primarily due to incremental gross profit and lower operating expenses. 

Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA:  Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure as defined below, was a loss of ($0.3) million for the second quarter of 2018, compared to a non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA loss of ($0.6) million for the second quarter of 2017.  The $0.3 million year-over-year decrease in Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA loss was primarily driven by incremental gross profit.  Please refer to the section entitled “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to Comparable GAAP Measures” and the accompanying financial table included at the end of this release for a reconciliation of GAAP Net Loss to Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA results for the three month periods ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.  Based on the Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA results for the second quarter of 2018, the Company met a milestone within its debt agreement with Silicon Valley Bank and elected to defer commencement of the amortization of the term loan principal from September 1, 2018 to March 1, 2019. 

Six Months Ended June 30, 2018 Financial Results
Revenue:  Total revenue for the first six months of 2018 decreased 5% to $12.5 million from $13.2 million in the same six month period of 2017, reflecting a 7% increase in product revenue and a 15% decrease in service and supplies revenue.

Cancer Detection revenue for the first six months of 2018 decreased $0.7 million, or 8%, to $8.0 million, as compared to $8.7 million in the same six month period in 2017.  The year-over-year Detection results were negatively impacted by the inclusion of $0.4 million in MRI revenue in the first six months of 2017.  Excluding MRI revenue in both periods, cancer Detection revenues in the first six months of 2018 decreased $0.5 million, or 5%, to $7.9 million, from $8.4 million in the same six month period of 2017.  Therapy revenue for the first six months of 2018 was flat at $4.5 million as compared to the same six month period of 2017.  Excluding the Xoft subscription service revenues in both periods, Therapy revenues increased $0.8 million, or 24%, in the first six months of 2018 as compared to the same six months of 2017. Total revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2018, excluding the impact of MRI and Xoft skin subscription service revenues, increased 3% to $12.0 million from $11.7 million in the same six months of 2017.

Gross Profit:  Gross profit for the first six months of 2018 was $9.3 million, or 74% of revenue, compared with $9.2 million, or 70% of revenue, for the same six months of 2017.  The year-over-year increase in gross profit percentage was primarily due to incremental gross profit margin associated with the Company’s exit from the unprofitable Xoft skin subscription service business.

Operating Expenses:  Total operating expenses for the first six months of 2018 increased $1.1 million to $13.4 million from $12.3 million in the same six months of 2017.  The increase was due mainly to the $2.5 million gain on the sale of the MRI assets recorded in the prior year quarter.  Absent the gain, operating expenses decreased $1.4 million year-over-year due primarily to lower stock compensation and sales and marketing expense which were partially offset by incremental costs associated with our Tomo Detection Version 2.0 study. In May of 2018, the Company submitted Tomo Detection Version 2.0 for FDA approval.

GAAP Net Loss:  Net loss for the first six months of 2018 was ($4.3) million, or ($0.26) per share, compared with a net loss of ($3.1) million, or ($0.19) per share, for the same six months of 2017.  The $1.2 million year-over-year increase in net loss was primarily due to the $2.5 million gain on the sale of the MRI assets recorded in the prior year period.  Excluding the gain, net loss improved by $1.3 million due mainly to lower operating expense which was partially offset by incremental interest expense. 

Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA:  Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure as defined below, was a loss of ($2.7) million for the first six months of 2018, compared to a non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA loss of ($2.1) million for the second quarter of 2017.  The $0.6 million year-over-year increase in Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA loss was primarily driven by incremental costs associated with our Tomo Detection Version 2.0 study.  Please refer to the section entitled “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to Comparable GAAP Measures” and the accompanying financial table included at the end of this release for a reconciliation of GAAP Net Loss to Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA results for the six month periods ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

Cash and Cash Equivalents:  As of June 30, 2018, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $7.8 million, compared with $9.4 million as of December 31, 2017.  

Subsequent Event:  In August of 2018, the Company amended the terms of its credit facility with Silicon Valley Bank.  The amendment modifies the debt covenants, the line of credit, the final payment amount, and some other minor terms.

However, management believes that in order to understand the Company's short-term and long-term financial and operational trends, investors may wish to consider the impact of certain non-cash or non-recurring items, when used as a supplement to financial performance measures in accordance with GAAP. These items result from facts and circumstances that vary in frequency and/or impact on continuing operations.  Management also uses results of operations before such items to evaluate the operating performance of the Company and compare it against past periods, make operating decisions, and serve as a basis for strategic planning.  These non-GAAP financial measures provide management with additional means to understand and evaluate the operating results and trends in the Company's ongoing business by eliminating certain non-cash expenses and other items that management believes might otherwise make comparisons of the Company's ongoing business with prior periods more difficult, obscure trends in ongoing operations or reduce management's ability to make useful forecasts.  Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide additional means of evaluating period-over-period operating performance.  In addition, management understands that some investors and financial analysts find this information helpful in analyzing the Company's financial and operational performance and comparing this performance to its peers and competitors.

Management defines "Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA" as the sum of GAAP Net Loss before provisions for interest expense, other income, stock-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization, tax expense, severance, gain on sale of assets, loss on disposal of assets, acquisition and litigation related expenses.  Management considers this non-GAAP financial measure to be an important indicator of the Company's operational strength and performance of its business and a good measure of its historical operating trends, in particular the extent to which ongoing operations impact the Company's overall financial performance.

Management excludes each of the items identified below from the applicable non-GAAP financial measure referenced above for the reasons set forth with respect to that excluded item:

  • Interest expense: The Company excludes interest expense which includes interest from the facility agreement, interest on settlement obligations and interest on capital leases, from its non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA calculation.
  • Stock-based compensation expense: excluded as these are non-cash expenses that management does not consider part of ongoing operating results when assessing the performance of the Company's business, and also because the total amount of expense is partially outside of the Company's control as it is based on factors such as stock price volatility and interest rates, which may be unrelated to our performance during the period in which the expense is incurred.
  • Amortization and Depreciation: Purchased assets and intangibles are amortized over a period of several years and generally cannot be changed or influenced by management after they are acquired. Accordingly, these non-cash items are not considered by management in making operating decisions, and management believes that such expenses do not have a direct correlation to future business operations. Thus, including such charges does not accurately reflect the performance of the Company's ongoing operations for the period in which such charges are incurred.
  • Severance relates to costs incurred due to the termination of certain employees. The Company provides compensation to certain employees as an accommodation upon termination of employment without cause. Management believes that excluding severance costs from operating results provides investors with a better means for measuring current Company performance.
  • Gain on sale of MRI assets relates to the gain realized on the sale of the MRI assets.  The Company excludes this item as it is not considered by management in making operating decisions, and management believes that such items do not have a direct correlation to future business operations.
  • Acquisition related: relates to professional service fees due to acquisitions.  The Company does not consider these acquisition-related costs to be related to the organic continuing operations of the acquired businesses and are generally not relevant to assessing or estimating the long-term performance of the acquired assets.
  • Litigation related: These expenses consist primarily of settlement, legal and other professional fees related to litigation. The Company excludes these costs from its non-GAAP measures primarily because the Company believes that these costs have no direct correlation to the core operations of the Company.

On occasion in the future, there may be other items, such as significant asset impairments, restructuring charges or significant gains or losses from contingencies that the Company may exclude if it believes that doing so is consistent with the goal of providing useful information to investors and management.
