LeMaitre Provides Q2 2021 Update
BURLINGTON, Mass., July 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LeMaitre Vascular, Inc. (Nasdaq:LMAT), a provider of peripheral vascular devices, implants and services, today announced preliminary unaudited results for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.
Q2 2021 Preliminary Results
- Net Sales of $40.7mm, +64% reported, +35% organic vs. Q2 2020
- Gross Margin of 65.5% to 66.1%, -2.7% at the midpoint vs. Q2 2020
- Operating Income of approximately $10.9mm to $11.3mm, +128% at the midpoint vs. Q2 2020
- Cash and Cash Equivalents of $21.8 million
- Debt paid down $9mm to $23.0mm
By product, Q2 sales growth was driven by Artegraft (acquired in June 2020) with sales of $6.7 million, as well as by valvulotomes, shunts and allografts. Geographically, Q2 sales growth occurred in all major geographies, with the Americas up +83%, Europe/Middle East/Africa up +36% and Asia/Pac up +29%. We ended the quarter with 88 sales representatives and 27 open hiring requisitions.
The gross margin decline was driven by inventory write-downs, as well as manufacturing inefficiencies related to personnel reductions in 2020.
The increase in income from operations was driven primarily by the increase in net sales in the period.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
LeMaitre management believes that in order to better understand the Company's short-term and long-term financial trends, investors may wish to consider certain non-GAAP financial measures as a supplement to financial performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures are not based on a comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and do not have standardized meanings. These non-GAAP measures result from facts and circumstances that may vary in frequency and/or impact on continuing operations. Non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, financial performance measures in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is provided below.
In this press release, the Company has reported its non-GAAP sales growth percentage after adjusting for the impact of foreign currency exchange, business development transactions, and/or other events as well. The Company refers to the calculation of non-GAAP sales growth percentages as "organic." The Company analyzes non-GAAP sales on a constant currency basis, net of acquisitions and other non-recurring events. Because changes in foreign currency exchange rates have a non-operating impact on net sales, and acquisitions, divestitures, product discontinuations, and other strategic transactions are episodic in nature and are highly variable to the reported sales results, the Company believes that evaluating growth in sales on a constant currency basis net of such transactions provides an additional and meaningful assessment of sales to management.
The Company has also reported non-GAAP outstanding debt, which takes into account the impact of unamortized deferred financing costs. The Company believes that considering its debt in this manner provides a view of the amount owed on a cash basis.
