Share:
ELYRIA, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Invacare Corporation (NYSE: IVC) today announced its financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015.

Except for free cash flow(a), the financial information excludes the discontinued operations of Altimate Medical, Inc. (Altimate), the company's former manufacturer of stationary standing assistive devices for use in patient rehabilitation that was divested on August 29, 2014. Altimate was a part of the North America/Home Medical Equipment (HME) segment. For more information, see the financial statements at the end of this release.

CEO SUMMARY

Matthew E. Monaghan, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, ''Since joining Invacare on April 1, 2015, I have focused the organization on two priorities. Our first priority is building a strong quality culture throughout the company. We continue to make progress toward a sustainable result. The second priority is generating profitable growth. There are a number of transition areas, primarily in the North America/Home Medical Equipment (HME) segment, where we are realigning the team to capitalize on multiple opportunities that will enable that growth. To position ourselves for the future, we have adjusted our capital structure accordingly and have narrowed our focus on our long-term strengths, as evident through the real estate sale and leaseback transaction in April 2015 and the July 2015 divestiture of the United States rentals businesses.''

Commenting on the second quarter's results, Monaghan said, ''Our European business, which comprises our full portfolio of products, had constant currency net sales(b) growth of 2.9%. With the impact of foreign exchange, net sales declined 16.7% compared to the second quarter last year. The Asia/Pacific business grew constant currency net sales 6.7% with growth in both the New Zealand and Australian distribution businesses. Foreign exchange rates reduced Asia/Pacific net sales by 16.0% to negative 9.3% on a reported basis compared to second quarter last year. The Institutional Products Group (IPG), which completed the supply chain transition of its long-term care beds facility, achieved 6.9% constant currency net sales growth and 6.1% reported net sales growth compared to the second quarter last year. In the North America/HME business, sales were lower as a result of a number of transitional issues. Net sales declined 10.5% on a constant currency basis and 11.4% on a reported basis compared to second quarter last year.''

Monaghan continued, ''For the consolidated company, second quarter constant currency net sales decreased 2.1% and by 12.4% on a reported net sales basis compared to last year. The team managed selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expense to reduce adjusted net loss per share(c) to $0.23 from $0.39 last year. Free cash flow was unfavorably impacted by increased inventory levels and a $1.9 million payment related to the 2014 retirement of an executive officer of the company. This was favorably offset by $23.0 million realized from the real estate sale and lease back transaction in April. Largely as a result of these factors, free cash flow was positive $9.5 million in the second quarter compared to negative $8.6 million in the second quarter last year.''

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS FOR THE SECOND QUARTER

  • GAAP loss per share from continuing operations was $0.26 for the quarter compared $0.45 last year.
  • Adjusted net loss per share from continuing operations was $0.23 compared to $0.39 last year.
  • Free cash flow was positive $9.5 million compared to negative $8.6 million last year. Free cash flow was unfavorably impacted by increased inventory levels and a $1.9 million payment related to the 2014 retirement of an executive officer of the company. This was favorably offset by $23.0 million realized from the real estate sale and leaseback transaction completed in April 2015.
  • Net sales from continuing operations decreased 12.4%. Constant currency net sales decreased 2.1% compared to last year.
  • Debt outstanding as of June 30, 2015, was $49.5 million, an increase of $24.8 million compared to March 31, 2015, driven by approximately $32.3 million in capital lease liabilities due to the real estate sale and leaseback transaction completed in April 2015.

CONSOLIDATED RESULTS FROM CONTINUING OPERATIONS

For the second quarter, GAAP loss per share was $0.26 compared to $0.45 for the same period last year ($8.2 million net loss compared to $14.5 million net loss). The current quarter was negatively impacted by restructuring charges of $0.02 per share, or $0.6 million, compared to restructuring charges of $0.05 per share, or $1.7 million, in the same period last year.

For the second quarter, adjusted net loss per share was $0.23 compared to $0.39 for the same period last year ($7.3 million adjusted net loss(d) compared to $12.5 million adjusted net loss). The reduction in adjusted net loss was driven by favorable SG&A, net interest and tax expenses. These benefits were partially offset by unfavorable gross margin primarily due to foreign exchange, and lower net sales.

Net sales for the second quarter decreased 12.4% to $286.3 million from $326.9 million in the same period last year. Constant currency net sales decreased 2.1% for the quarter compared to the same period last year. Constant currency net sales increased in the European, IPG and Asia/Pacific segments, but were more than offset by a decline in the North America/HME segment. Net sales of products manufactured from the Taylor Street facility, which were impacted by the company's consent decree with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and which included product sales outside of the North America/HME segment, were approximately $9.8 million in the second quarter compared to approximately $10.5 million in the second quarter last year.

For the second quarter, gross margin as a percentage of net sales was lower by 1.0 percentage point compared to the second quarter of last year, driven by unfavorable foreign exchange, freight costs and negative sales mix. Manufacturing costs were favorable.

In the second quarter, SG&A expense decreased by 17.7% to $82.5 million from $100.3 million last year. Foreign currency translation reduced SG&A expense by $7.3 million or 7.2 percentage points. Constant currency SG&A expense decreased 10.5% compared to the second quarter of last year due primarily to favorable employment costs, depreciation and amortization expenses.

The company incurred after-tax restructuring charges of $0.6 million for the second quarter, principally related to severance costs in the North America/HME and European segments. In the second quarter of 2014, the company incurred after-tax restructuring charges of $1.7 million. These restructuring charges were excluded from adjusted net loss per share.

For the six months ended June 30, 2015, GAAP loss per share was $0.49 compared to $1.04 last year ($15.7 million net loss compared to $33.4 million net loss). The current year net loss was significantly impacted by unfavorable net sales, unfavorable gross margin driven by foreign exchange and negative sales mix, a write-off of $0.02 per share, or $0.7 million, for bank fees related to the previous debt agreement, and restructuring charges of $0.03 per share, or $0.9 million. For the six months ended June 30, 2014, net loss was impacted by an incremental warranty expense of $0.07 per share, or $2.1 million, related to the company's power wheelchair joystick recall, and restructuring charges of $0.11 per share, or $3.5 million.

For the six months ended June 30, 2015, adjusted net loss per share was $0.44 compared to $0.92 for the same period last year ($14.2 million adjusted net loss compared to $29.3 million adjusted net loss). The reduction in adjusted net loss was primarily the result of favorable SG&A, net interest and tax expenses. These benefits were partially offset by unfavorable gross margin driven by negative sales mix, and by lower net sales. The six months ended June 30, 2014, included incremental warranty expense of $0.07 per share or $2.1 million after-tax expense related to the company's power wheelchair joystick recall.

For the six months ended June 30, 2015, net sales decreased 8.9% to $575.3 million from $631.4 million in the same period last year. For the first six months, constant currency net sales were flat compared to the same period last year. Higher constant currency net sales in the European, IPG and Asia/Pacific segments were offset by lower constant currency net sales in the North America/HME segment. Net sales of products manufactured from the Taylor Street facility, which were impacted by the company's consent decree with the FDA and which included product sales outside of the North America/HME segment, were approximately $20.2 million in the first half from approximately $20.0 million in the first half last year.

EUROPE

For the second quarter, European net sales decreased 16.7% to $128.2 million from $154.0 million in the same period last year. Constant currency net sales for the quarter increased 2.9% driven by improvements in all three product categories (mobility and seating, lifestyle and respiratory products). For the second quarter, earnings before income taxes decreased to $6.2 million, excluding restructuring charges of $0.1 million, compared to $12.3 million last year, which excluded restructuring charges of $0.6 million. The earnings decrease was primarily due to unfavorable foreign exchange and reduced gross margin, which was driven, in part, by negative sales mix.

For the first six months, European net sales decreased 13.3% to $257.2 million from $296.8 million for the same period last year. Constant currency net sales increased 3.6% driven by improvements in all three product categories. For the first six months, earnings before income taxes decreased to $13.8 million, excluding restructuring charges of $0.2 million, compared to $22.0 million last year, which excluded restructuring charges of $1.0 million. This earnings decrease was largely due to unfavorable foreign exchange and reduced gross margin, which was driven, in part, by negative sales mix.

NORTH AMERICA/HOME MEDICAL EQUIPMENT (HME)

For the second quarter, North America/HME net sales decreased 11.4% to $119.0 million from $134.3 million in the same period last year. Constant currency net sales decreased 10.5% compared to the second quarter last year, driven by declines in all three product categories. Loss before income taxes was $7.3 million in the second quarter, excluding restructuring charges of $0.5 million, compared to loss before income taxes of $13.5 million in the second quarter last year, which excluded restructuring charges of $0.8 million. The reduction in loss for the quarter was driven by favorable SG&A expense from reductions in employment costs and by improved gross margin as a result of favorable manufacturing and warranty costs.

For the first six months, North America/HME net sales decreased 5.7% to $244.2 million from $258.9 million in the same period last year. Constant currency net sales decreased 4.8% compared to last year driven by declines in all product categories. For the first six months, loss before income taxes was $16.0 million, excluding restructuring charges of $0.7 million, compared to loss before income taxes of $30.6 million for the first six months of last year, which excluded restructuring charges of $1.6 million. This decrease in loss was driven by favorable SG&A expense related to reductions in employment and consulting costs, and favorable gross margin as a result of favorable manufacturing and warranty costs. The loss before income taxes for the first six months of 2014 included warranty expense of $1.3 million related to the company's power wheelchair joystick recall.

INSTITUTIONAL PRODUCTS GROUP (IPG)

For the second quarter, IPG net sales increased by 6.1% to $27.4 million from $25.8 million last year. Constant currency net sales increased 6.9% driven by increases in interior design projects and bed sales, which included incremental volume related to the resolution of the supply chain transition referenced in the first quarter 2015. Earnings before income taxes were $2.3 million in the second quarter, excluding restructuring charges of $0.1 million, compared to earnings before income taxes in the second quarter of last year of $0.5 million, which excluded restructuring charges of $0.7 million. The increase in earnings before income taxes was largely due to favorable SG&A expense, primarily related to lower employment costs, and depreciation and amortization expenses. Gross margin was negatively impacted by freight costs.

For the first six months, IPG net sales increased by 0.7% to $51.3 million from $50.9 million last year. Constant currency net sales increased 1.5% driven largely by interior design projects and net sales of therapeutic support surfaces. Earnings before income taxes were $3.6 million for the first six months, excluding restructuring charges of $0.1 million, compared to earnings before income taxes of $1.4 million in the same period last year, which excluded restructuring charges of $1.7 million. The increase in earnings before income taxes was primarily due to favorable SG&A expense driven by lower employment costs, and depreciation and amortization expenses. Gross margin was negatively impacted by freight costs.

ASIA/PACIFIC

For the second quarter, Asia/Pacific net sales decreased 9.3% to $11.7 million from $12.9 million for the second quarter of last year. Constant currency net sales increased 6.7% attributable to the Australian and New Zealand distribution businesses. For the second quarter, loss before income taxes was $0.9 million compared to $2.3 million in the second quarter of last year. The reduction in loss before income taxes was largely due to favorable SG&A expense driven by lower employment costs, and to improved gross margin driven by warranty and freight costs.

For the first six months, Asia/Pacific net sales decreased 9.3% to $22.6 million from $24.9 million last year. Constant currency net sales increased 4.4% primarily due to the New Zealand distribution business. For the first six months, loss before income taxes was $2.2 million compared to $5.1 million in the same period last year, which included warranty expense recorded for the joystick recall of $0.9 million. Excluding the incremental expense related to the joystick recall, the loss before income taxes decreased primarily due to favorable SG&A expense from employment costs, and reduced freight costs.

FINANCIAL CONDITION

As of June 30, 2015, total debt outstanding was $49.5 million, compared to $24.7 million at March 31, 2015, and compared to $22.3 million as of December 31, 2014 (including the convertible debt discount, which reduced convertible debt and increased equity by $1.6 million as of June 30, 2015, $1.8 million as of March 31, 2015, and $2.0 million as of December 31, 2014). The company's total debt outstanding as of June 30, 2015, consisted of zero drawn on the revolving credit facility, $13.4 million in convertible debt and $36.1 million of other debt, principally lease liabilities, which increased by approximately $32.3 million as the result of the real estate sale and leaseback transaction announced on April 23, 2015. During the second quarter, borrowings on the revolving credit facility ranged from a high of $32.9 million to a low of zero with an ending balance of zero. The company's available borrowing capacity was $46.9 million as of June 30, 2015.

In the second quarter, the company reported positive free cash flow of $9.5 million compared to negative free cash flow of $8.6 million in the second quarter of 2014. The second quarter positive free cash flow was impacted by $23.0 million received as a result of the sale and leaseback transaction completed in April 2015. Excluding the cash proceeds from the real estate sale and leaseback transaction, free cash flow was a negative $13.5 million. The second quarter free cash flow was unfavorably impacted by increased inventory levels and by a $1.9 million payment related to the 2014 retirement of an executive officer of the company.

As of the end of the second quarter, days sales outstanding were 49 days up from 45 days as of December 31, 2014, and equal to 49 days as of June 30, 2014. At the end of the second quarter, inventory turns were 4.7 down from 4.9 as of December 31, 2014, and down from 4.9 as of June 30, 2014.

STATUS OF THE CONSENT DECREE

On December 21, 2012, the company entered into a consent decree of injunction with the FDA related to the company's corporate and Taylor Street wheelchair manufacturing facilities in Elyria, Ohio. The consent decree limits production at the Taylor Street manufacturing facility to orders meeting certain documentation requirements. In order to resume full operations at these facilities, the consent decree requires that a third-party expert perform three separate certification audits. The third-party certification audit reports must be submitted to the FDA for review and acceptance. The company has received the FDA's acceptance of the first two certification reports. The company cannot predict the timing or the outcome of the third expert certification audit nor acceptance of the results of this audit by the FDA.

According to the consent decree, once the expert's third certification audit is completed and its certification report is submitted to the FDA, as well as the company's own report related to its compliance status together with its responses to any observations in the certification report, the FDA will inspect the Company's corporate and Taylor Street facilities to determine whether they are in compliance with the FDA's Quality System Regulation (QSR). If and when the FDA is satisfied with the Company's compliance, the FDA will provide written notification that the Company is permitted to resume full operations at the impacted facilities.

(a) As used throughout this document, ''free cash flow'' is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is defined as net cash used by operating activities, excluding net cash flow impact related to restructuring activities, less purchases of property and equipment, adding back 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'' table included after the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets included in this press release.

(b) 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. 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-month periods ended June 30, 2015, and June 30, 2014. This financial measure is reconciled to the related GAAP financial measures in the ''Business Segment 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(d) 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.

(d) Adjusted net loss is a non-GAAP financial measure which is defined as net loss from continuing operations excluding the impact of restructuring charges ($0.7 million and $0.9 million pre-tax for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, respectively, and $2.1 million and $4.3 million pre-tax for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively), amortization of the convertible debt discount recorded in interest expense ($0.2 million and $0.4 million pre-tax for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, respectively, and $0.2 million and $0.3 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively), adding back of additional interest expense allocation as a result of the sale of Altimate ($0.1 million and $0.2 million pre-tax for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014), and excluding changes in tax valuation allowances. As a result of the sale of Altimate, the company was required to allocate a portion of interest expense to the discontinued operation.
