ELYRIA, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Invacare Corporation (NYSE:IVC) ("Invacare" or the "company") today reported results for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Second Quarter 2018 Highlights

  • Reported net sales increased 5.4% to $246.2 million while constant currency net sales(a) decreased 0.5% compared to 2Q17*.
  • Constant currency sequential net sales(b) increased 4.2% compared to 1Q18. Constant currency sequential net sales increased in all segments except Institutional Products Group ("IPG").
  • Gross margin as a percentage of net sales decreased 40 basis points to 27.4% compared to 2Q17 primarily as a result of higher expedited freight costs incurred in the North America/Home Medical Equipment ("NA/HME") and Europe segments partially offset by foreign currency and reduced warranty expense.
  • Operating loss was $6.8 million, an improvement of $8.9 million compared to 2Q17, with improved operating performance in the NA/HME and Asia Pacific segments and reduced restructuring costs.
  • GAAP loss per share was $0.50, compared to loss per share of $0.72 in 2Q17, and adjusted net loss per share(c) was $0.41 compared to adjusted net loss per share of $0.63 in 2Q17. GAAP loss per share was negatively impacted by $0.07 per share ($2.2 million) in increased net interest expense due to the company's convertible debt issuance in 2Q17.
  • Free cash flow(d) usage was $24.6 million compared to usage of $22.4 million in 2Q17.
  • EBITDA(e) was negative $3.2 million, an improvement of $8.8 million compared to 2Q17. EBITDA benefited from a decrease of $2.6 million in equity compensation expense compared to 2Q17.

CEO Summary

“Our transformation continues to take shape. We are pleased that the NA/HME segment realized constant currency net sales growth of 2.3% compared to 2Q17. This is the fourth consecutive quarter of constant currency flat to positive sales growth in this segment, driven by a greater than 10% increase in sales of mobility and seating products. The growth in our mobility and seating product category reflects the competitiveness of our products and our alignment with our provider customers and end users. Operating loss and EBITDA improved compared to 2Q17 benefiting from favorable foreign currency, cost reduction activities implemented in 2017 and reduced restructuring costs partially offset by increased freight costs. Compared to 2Q17, the company's cash flow usage increased by $2.2 million primarily due to higher inventory levels and higher interest payments. We believe our capital structure and balance sheet will support us through the transformation.

As we continue to reshape our business, we are undertaking a mild shift in product mix in Europe, and we expect a slight reduction in Europe revenue through 4Q18 in support of this shift. In NA/HME, we are narrowly focusing now on accelerating respiratory growth and stabilizing IPG where we have good products and will amplify our work with our channel partners to drive growth. As demonstrated in the past, we excel in the areas where we focus our resources. We have a great brand presence, and consumers know our products reflect high quality. The company will continue to emphasize a culture of quality excellence and achievement of its long-term earnings potential,” said Matthew E. Monaghan, chairman, president and chief executive officer.

Europe - Constant currency net sales declined compared to 2Q17 driven by all product lines as the company gradually applies its transformation strategy to this segment to focus more on clinically valued, higher-margin products. Compared to 1Q18, constant currency sequential net sales improved 6.0%. Gross margin as a percentage of sales declined slightly due to increased R&D expenditures. Operating income decreased compared to 2Q17 principally due to unfavorable manufacturing variances and increased freight costs related to product transfers associated with facility consolidation, and increased R&D and SG&A costs. These were partially offset by the benefits of foreign currency.

North America/Home Medical Equipment (NA/HME) - Constant currency net sales increased compared to 2Q17 driven largely by increases in sales of mobility and seating products as the company continued to benefit from exiting the injunctive phase of the consent decree. Respiratory product sales declined in stationary concentrators and HomeFill(R) systems compared to 2Q17 partially offset by an increase in portable oxygen concentrators. Compared to 1Q18, constant currency sequential net sales improved 0.3% driven by a significant increase in mobility and seating and lifestyle products offset by lower respiratory product sales. Operating loss decreased compared to 2Q17 primarily related to reduced SG&A, due largely to lower employment costs, and reduced R&D and warranty expense, which was partially offset by increased freight costs.

Institutional Products Group (IPG) - Constant currency net sales decreased compared to 2Q17, principally due to lower bed product sales as a result of a supply disruption that was resolved by the end of 2Q18. Compared to 1Q18, constant currency sequential net sales declined 7.8% attributable to all product lines. Operating income declined compared to 2Q17 principally due to a decline in sales partially offset by reduced warranty and SG&A expense.

Asia/Pacific - Constant currency net sales increased compared to 2Q17 principally driven by increased sales of mobility and seating products. Operating income increased significantly compared to 2Q17 as a result of a net sales increase, reduced R&D expense and favorable manufacturing variances.

Financial Condition

The company's cash and cash equivalents balances were $122.4 million and $176.5 million at June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively. The expected decrease in cash was the result of normal operations, which included losses in certain areas as we continue to apply our transformation strategy, and seasonal variations in operations.

Free cash flow usage for 2Q18 was $24.6 million compared to usage of $22.4 million in 2Q17. The increase in usage was primarily related to increased working capital related to inventory and higher interest payments of $2.7 million due to the convertible debt issuance in 2Q17. The 2Q18 free cash flow was driven by a net loss, increased inventory and decreased accrued expenses.

Additional Highlights

The company expanded the size of its Board of Directors and added new directors. In May, Petra Danielsohn-Weil, PhD joined the company's Board of Directors. With more than 30 years of experience in the medical and pharmaceutical fields, Ms. Danielsohn-Weil offers deep industry and international expertise and a wealth of experience in Europe, where the company has significant operations and the majority of its sales. In July, Diana S. Ferguson also joined the Board. Ms. Ferguson has more than 30 years of finance experience in the manufacturing, financial and consumer industries, as well as the public-sector. She will replace a director who served with financial expertise and recently retired. The two new appointments bring the number of directors to a total of nine, eight of whom are considered independent, and reflect director diversity of 67%, based on gender, race and ethnicity.

Outlook

The company's pursuit of profitable sales growth and cost reductions are expected to drive its longer-term goal of improved operating income and positive EBITDA. As part of the transformation, the company will continue to make significant investments, strategically reduce sales in certain areas, refocus resources away from less accretive activities and evaluate its global infrastructure for opportunities to drive efficiency. The company expects to see improved results in 2018 from actions executed to date and additional actions as it continues to streamline operations, resize and reshape the organization, especially in North America, around its new business mix and size. By executing this strategy and making these operational improvements, the company expects long-term benefits for the company’s stakeholders.

Positive sales growth in mobility and seating products, both year-over-year and sequentially, is a key metric and an indicator of the progress of the transformation of the NA/HME segment. The company expects to increase SG&A investment for the remainder of the year to stimulate growth and brand awareness for its portable oxygen concentrator. Regarding the IPG segment, the company does not anticipate near-term sequential sales growth as it expects its new strategic selling approach to continue to take time to yield results. As noted previously, the company is gradually applying the transformation to the Europe segment, which may continue to reduce the segment's sales throughout the remainder of 2018 as it shifts its product mix toward more clinically valued, higher-margin products.

The company remains positive about the growth potential of its businesses. Results of the mobility and seating and lifestyles product categories already reflect this growth potential. Good products and stable markets in other areas support the transformation we are executing in Europe, IPG and in the respiratory product category. In the near-term, the company anticipates an unfavorable impact on its results due to increases in tariffs and freight costs. The specific impact is not currently estimated as policy and commodity prices are only beginning to be implemented, and management has not estimated its ability to offset any increases with internal actions. SG&A will increase somewhat, especially in NA/HME, as the company undertakes the promotion of certain product lines, including its respiratory products. The company will continue to make capital investments to grow the business. Working capital will expand as the business grows, especially in support of increases in mobility and seating sales, which require substantial working capital and demonstration units to be effective. The company continues to estimate that cash flow in 2018 will be similar to 2017 including increased capital spending. The company believes its cash balances and available borrowing capacity should be sufficient to fund its transformation.

The company will continue to emphasize a culture of quality excellence, profitable sales growth and the achievement of its long-term objectives.

Definitions of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

(a) As used throughout this document, "constant currency net sales" is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is defined as net sales excluding the impact of foreign currency translation. The current year's functional constant currency net sales are translated using the prior year's foreign exchange rates. These amounts are then compared to the prior year's sales to calculate the constant currency net sales change. A table accompanying this release compares net sales as reported and net sales excluding the effects of foreign exchange translation by segment and for the consolidated company for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and June 30, 2017, respectively. The company believes that this financial measure provides meaningful information for evaluating the core operating performance of the company. This financial measure is reconciled to the related GAAP financial measures in the "Business Segment Net Sales" table included in this press release.

(b) As used throughout this document, "constant currency sequential net sales" is a non-GAAP financial measure in which a given quarter's net sales are compared to the most recent prior quarter's net sales with each quarter's net sales translated at the foreign exchange rates for the quarter ended March 31, 2018. A table accompanying this release compares net sales for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and March 31, 2018 to each other with both periods translated at the foreign exchange rates for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The company believes that this financial measure provides meaningful information for evaluating the core operating performance of the company. This financial measure is reconciled to the related GAAP financial measures in the "Business Segment Sequential Net Sales" table included in this press release.

(c) As used throughout this document, "adjusted net loss per share" ("Adjusted EPS") is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is defined as adjusted net loss(g) divided by weighted average shares outstanding, assuming dilution. It should be noted that the company's definition of Adjusted EPS may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other companies because not all companies and analysts calculate Adjusted EPS in the same manner. The company believes that its exclusion adjustments are generally recognized by the industry in which it operates as relevant in computing Adjusted EPS as a supplementary non-GAAP financial measure used by financial analysts and others in the company's industry to meaningfully evaluate operating performance. This financial measure is reconciled to the related GAAP financial measure in the “Reconciliation of Net Loss Per Share to Adjusted Net Loss per Share” table located after the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations included in this press release.

(d) As used throughout this document, "free cash flow" is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is defined as net cash used by operating activities less purchases of property and equipment plus proceeds from sales of property and equipment. Management believes that this financial measure provides meaningful information for evaluating the overall financial performance of the company and its ability to repay debt or make future investments. This financial measure is reconciled to the related GAAP financial measure in the “Reconciliation from Net Cash Used by Operating Activities to Free Cash Flow” table located after the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets included in this press release.

(e) As used throughout this document, "Earnings Before Interest Taxes Depreciation and Amortization" ("EBITDA") is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is defined as net loss plus: income taxes, interest expense-net, net gain or loss on convertible debt derivatives and depreciation and amortization. The company believes that this financial measure provides meaningful information which is used by financial analysts and others in the company's industry to evaluate the performance of the company. This financial measure is reconciled to the related GAAP financial measure in the “Reconciliation of Net Loss to EBITDA” table included in this press release.

(f) "Constant Currency SG&A" is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is defined as SG&A expense excluding the impact of foreign currency translation. The current period's functional constant currency SG&A expenses are translated using the prior year's foreign exchange rates. These amounts are then compared to the prior year's SG&A expenses to calculate the constant currency SG&A expenses change.

(g) As used throughout this document, "adjusted net loss" is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is defined as adjusted net loss before income taxes net of adjusted income taxes. Adjusted net loss before income taxes is computed as the net loss excluding the amortization of convertible debt discounts recorded in interest expense ($2.9 million and $5.7 million pre-tax for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, respectively, compared to $1.7 million and $3.5 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, respectively), and net gain (loss) on convertible debt derivatives (net gains of $0.0 million and $0.1 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, respectively, compared to net losses of $1.1 million and $0.2 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, respectively). Adjusted income taxes are computed as taxes as calculated for GAAP then adjusted for an expense or benefit at the statutory rate related to pretax adjustments related to locations without a valuation allowance, the exclusion of uncertain tax liabilities deemed not related to current operations or the exclusion of taxes related to nonrecurring sales of non-inventory product or entities on an intercompany basis. (Note: The U.S. is in a full valuation allowance and accordingly, no tax expense adjustments are appropriate related to U.S. pre-tax adjustments.) This financial measure is reconciled to the related GAAP financial measure in the “Reconciliation of Net Loss per Share to Adjusted Net Loss Per Share” table included after the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations included in this press release.
