Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2018 Financial Results
Fourth quarter 2018 revenue was $18.3 million, compared to $19.3 million for the same period in 2017. Full year 2018 revenue was $72.2 million, compared to $82.6 million for 2017. The decreases occurred primarily due to the decrease in sales in the spinal hardware implant product line.
Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2018 was 39.7%, compared to 53.2% for the same period in 2017 and was 60.2% for 2018, compared to 60.6% in 2017. In the fourth quarter of 2018 and 2017, the Company increased its inventory reserve by $4.4 million and $2.2 million, respectively, primarily due to excess inventory in the spinal implant product line. Excluding the inventory reserve adjustments in 2018 and 2017, gross profit would have been 63.7% and 64.6% for the fourth quarter, respectively, and 66.3% and 63.3%, for the full year, respectively.
Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2018 were $62.0 million, compared to $37.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2017, and were $103.6 million in 2018 compared to $87.9 million in 2017. In the fourth quarter of 2018 and 2017, the Company incurred non-cash impairment charges to goodwill and intangibles attributed to the X-Spine acquisition totaling $48.1 million and $17.6 million, respectively. Excluding the non-cash impairment charges, operating expenses were $13.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 compared to $19.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2017, and $55.4 million in 2018 compared to $70.3 million in 2017. These decreases were primarily attributable to lower commission expense as a result of lower revenue during 2018, a decrease in general and administrative expenses, and cost reduction initiatives to consolidate facilities.
Fourth quarter 2018 net loss was $56.7 million, or $4.31 per share, compared to fourth quarter 2017 net loss of $28.4 million, or $18.77 per share. Net loss for 2018 was $70.1 million, or $5.97 per share, compared to $52.4 million, or $34.76 per share, in 2017. Excluding the non-cash impairment charges and the inventory reserve charges, the net loss was $4.2 million, or $0.32 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to $8.6 million, or $5.70 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2017, and $17.6 million, or $1.50 per share, in 2018 compared to $32.6 million, or $21.64 per share, in 2017.
Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2018 was $1.3 million compared to a loss of $0.9 million for the same period of 2017. Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA for 2018 was $4.7 million, compared to $0.5 million for 2017. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income/loss from operations before depreciation, amortization and interest expense, and as further adjusted to add back in or exclude, as applicable, non-cash special charges, provision for losses on inventory, non-cash impairment charges, non-cash compensation, change in warrant derivative liability, separation related expenses, litigation reserve, facility consolidation costs and restructuring expenses. A calculation and reconciliation of non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA to net loss can be found in the attached financial tables.
Amendments to Credit Facility and Debt Capital Investment
On March 29, 2019, the Company and its lenders entered into a Second Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, which, among other provisions, increased availability by an additional $10 million via an incremental delayed draw term loan, extended the maturity date to March 31, 2021 and the period during which no interest accrues from December 31, 2018 until March 31, 2020, and replaced the Minimum Consolidated EBITDA and Consolidated Senior Leverage Ratio Covenants with a new Minimum Revenue Covenant, to support the Company’s working capital needs. In connection with new amendment, the Company issued warrants for the purchase of 1.2 million shares of Xtant common stock with an exercise price of $0.01 per share and an expiration date of April 1, 2029, to OrbiMed Royalty Opportunities II, LP and ROS Acquisition Offshore LP, which collectively own approximately 70% of Xtant’s outstanding common stock and are the sole holders of the Company’s outstanding long-term debt under the credit facility.
