BELGRADE, Mont., March 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Xtant Medical Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American: XTNT), a global medical technology company focused on surgical solutions for the treatment of spinal disorders, today reported financial and operating results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2021.
“Xtant accomplished numerous objectives in 2021 focused on developing new products, expanding our distributor network and growing our adjacent market sales that have us excited about the future of the Company,” said Sean Browne, President and CEO of Xtant Medical. “Our Company achieved year-over-year revenue growth of 4%, and I am particularly pleased with the top-line performance of our biologics business, which grew 8% annually in a very difficult year. As part of our strategic plan, we launched four new products, and we are especially excited by the strong demand of our newly introduced OsteoFactor and OsteoVive Plus products. Guided by our mission of ‘honoring the gift of donation, so that our patients can live as full, and complete a life as possible,’ we are confident that our key growth initiatives will maximize the potential opportunities of our leading spine brand.”
Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2021 Financial Results
Fourth quarter 2021 revenue was $14.0 million, compared to $14.0 million for the same quarter in 2020. Full year 2021 revenue was $55.3 million, compared to $53.3 million for 2020. The increase in revenue was largely attributable to additional private label and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) orthobiologics sales.
Gross margin for the fourth quarter of 2021 was 55.1%, compared to 64.1% for the same period in 2020 and was 58.8% for 2021, compared to 64.5% in 2020. These decreases were primarily attributable to increased underabsorption of labor and overhead associated with initiatives to reduce inventory, a shift in product sales mix with a proportional increase in private label and OEM channel sales, and sell-through of product subject to higher production costs during prior periods.
Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2021 totaled $9.6 million, compared to $8.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, and were $36.3 million in 2021 compared to $35.1 million in 2020. These increases were primarily due to additional stock-based compensation expense, greater salaries and wage expenses and severance related expenses, which were partially offset by lower commissions resulting from a greater a mix of commission-free private label and OEM sales.
Fourth quarter 2021 net loss totaled $2.3 million, or $0.03 per share, compared to the fourth quarter 2020 net loss of $0.7 million, or $0.01 per share. Net loss for 2021 was $4.8 million, or $0.06 per share, compared to a net loss of $7.0 million, or $0.25 per share, for 2020.
Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2021 totaled a loss of $0.5 million, compared to Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA of $1.0 million for the same period in 2020. Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA for 2021 totaled $0.7 million, compared to $3.1 million for 2020. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income/loss from operations before depreciation, amortization and interest expense and provision for income taxes, and as further adjusted to add back in or exclude, as applicable, non-cash compensation, separation related expenses, change in warrant derivative liability and legal settlement reserves. A calculation and reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss can be found in the attached financial tables.
