Net revenues attributable to the Company's core business for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 were $24.9 million, an increase of 22% over net revenues reported for the comparable quarter ended September 30, 2019. Net revenues attributable to the core business for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 were up approximately 8% over the quarter ended June 30, 2020. Total revenues for the current quarter were $33.4 million which included approximately $8.6 million of product sales and services related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Net revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 were $70.8 million for the Company's core business and $100.1 million for the company, which included COVID-19 related sales and services.
  • Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 totaled approximately $2.8 million, compared to $2.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2019. Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 totaled approximately $26.5 million, compared to $6.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 totaled approximately $7.7 million, a 58% increase as compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2019. Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 totaled approximately $32.0 million, a 138% increase as compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2019. A reconciliation of reported non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures can be found in the tables accompanying this press release.
  • The Company had an all time high cash balance of $32.4 million at September 30, 2020 ($13.4 million at December 31, 2019) and an overall working capital balance of $19.6 million ($1.9 million at December 31, 2019). Total long-term debt as of September 30, 2020 was $7.2 million.
  • The Company expects to generate net revenues attributable to its core business of approximately $26 million to $27 million during the fourth quarter of 2020. In addition to its core business, the Company is continuing to pursue additional sales and support revenues related to the COVID-19 pandemic and estimates fourth quarter 2020 revenues of approximately $5 million to $6 million related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Total revenues for the fourth quarter are estimated to be approximately $31 million to $33 million.

“This year has challenged the healthcare system in an unprecedented manner with the ongoing respiratory pandemic creating a strain on the acute care facilities around the country,” said Casey Hoyt, Viemed's CEO. “I am extremely proud of the work our team of skilled clinicians has done and will continue to do to prevent emergency visits and readmissions. Our team has assisted operations around the country, and we are realizing more business with improved access to facilities and clinics. We all look forward to a day where the pandemic is behind us, and until then we will continue to serve as a resource while delivering value to our shareholders.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release refers to “Adjusted EBITDA” which is a non-GAAP financial measure that does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. GAAP. The Company's presentation of this financial measure may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization, unrealized (gain) loss on warrant conversion liability and stock-based compensation. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA provides helpful information with respect to the Company’s operating performance as viewed by management, including a view of the Company’s business that is not dependent on the impact of the Company’s capitalization structure and items that are not part of the Company’s day-to-day operations. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA (i) to compare the Company’s operating performance on a consistent basis, (ii) to calculate incentive compensation for the Company’s employees, (iii) for planning purposes, including the preparation of the Company’s internal annual operating budget, and (iv) to evaluate the performance and effectiveness of the Company’s operational strategies. Accordingly, management believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information in understanding and evaluating the Company’s operating performance in the same manner as management. The following table is a reconciliation of net income (loss), the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure, to Adjusted EBITDA, on a historical basis for the periods indicated:

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP. It is not a measurement of the Company’s financial performance under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to revenue or net income, as applicable, or any other performance measures derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other businesses. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s operating results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the impact of certain cash charges resulting from matters the Company considers not to be indicative of ongoing operations; and other companies in the Company’s industry may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.
