CHESTER, NY / ACCESSWIRE / February 12, 2019 / Repro Med Systems, Inc. dba RMS Medical Products (OTCQX: REPR) (RMS Medical) today announced the latest financial results for the three and twelve months ending December 31, 2018 and outlined its plans for continued strong growth.

"2018 was a critical year for RMS," said Don Pettigrew, President and Chief Executive Officer of RMS Medical. "We refreshed our management team, strengthened our Board, entered into a new therapeutic indication and are preparing for future growth with the adoption of our Strategic Plan. Our record results in the past year are evidence of the strength of this organization, and the value of the FREEDOM Syringe Infusion System, and we are looking to expand on this strength as we drive towards our vision of becoming the preferred drug delivery partner for specific infusion therapies in select markets." Don continued, "We have laid a solid foundation and developed a game plan to achieve our goals by the end of 2022 of $50 million net revenues, 70%+ Gross Margins and 20%+ annual organic revenue growth for each year. While we may not always progress in a straight line, the team is focused on achieving these goals and I am confident we can get there."

Don Pettigrew continued, "While 2018 was a record year financially, the organization underwent a lot of changes. As a result, our numbers, especially in Q4 2018 include some charges related to our management reorganization that we do not expect to incur in the future. We have broken out these charges in our financial results in an effort to show how the business would have performed on a normalized basis and they are described in the Operating Expenses, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA and Non-GAAP Normalized Net Income sections below." Don concluded, "We look forward to the future of RMS Medical and executing on our plan to achieve its potential."

Net Sales

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2018, net sales grew 12.4% to $17.4 million compared to $15.4 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2017. Growth in net sales in 2018 was driven by increased penetration of the PIDD market for SubQ Ig, some early adoption of the CIDP market and clinical trials which are a growing revenue source.

For the three months ended December 31, 2018, net sales totaled $4.3 million, up 3.5% from $4.1 million during the three months ended December 31, 2017. While Q4 2018 net sales were above those achieved in our strongest quarter of 2017, fourth quarter sales were sequentially lower versus Q3 2018, mostly due to the timing of orders received in December but shipped in January 2019.

Gross Profit

For 2018, gross profit was $10.8 million, 62.3% of net sales, up 16.6% compared to $9.3 million, or 60.0% of net sales during 2017. The expansion of gross profit was the result of increased net sales during the period in addition to improved operating efficiencies which resulted in the improvement in gross margin.

During the fourth quarter of 2018, gross profit expanded 9.0% to $2.7 million, or 63.5% of net sales, compared to $2.5 million, or 60.4% of net sales, during the fourth quarter of 2017. Last year we had increased levels of scrap during quality inspections. In January 2018, we implemented a nondestructive testing protocol to reduce scrap which helped drive the improvement in margins both for the quarter and the year.

Operating Expenses

Total operating expenses for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018 were $9.6 million, 55.6% of net sales, compared to $8.1 million, 52.6% of net sales, during the twelve months ended December 31, 2017. The increase came primarily in Q4 2018, as described below.

Total operating expenses for the three months ended December 31, 2018 were $3.1 million compared to $2.1 million during the three months ended December 31, 2017. In the fourth quarter of 2018, RMS went through significant organizational changes and incurred expenditures related to the termination and replacement of C-suite executives and senior management, legal expenses related to activities under the purview of the special committee formed by the Board as previously disclosed, the recruitment of new directors replacing exiting directors and investment banking and legal fees for the recent Common Stock Purchase Agreement the Company executed on December 17, 2018. In aggregate these expenses were $0.6 million for the fourth quarter and $1.0 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018. Further driving expenses for the quarter and yearwere increased costs related to our continued litigation with a competitor, as well asstock compensation expense mostly related to new hires, in aggregate $0.4million for the fourth quarter and $0.4 million for the year.

Net Income

2018 net income was $0.9 million, 5.2% of net sales, compared to $0.8 million, or 5.3% of net sales for 2017. For the fourth quarter of 2018, net loss was $355,000 compared to net income of $278,000 during the fourth quarter of 2017 due to the increase in operating expenses and the timing of orders as described above, partially offset by the favorable change in tax legislation.

Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA excludes from net income: tax (benefit)/expense, depreciation and amortization, interest income, operating expenses associated with the Company's organizational changes and stock compensation expense. For the year ended December 31, 2018, adjusted EBITDA was $2.7 million, 15.8% of net sales, up 73.9%, compared to $1.6 million, or 10.2% of net sales, during 2017. Adjusted EBITDA was approximately $448,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2018 compared to $469,000 during the same period of 2017.

Non-GAAP Normalized Net Income

Normalized net income excludes from net income: operating expenses and tax expense adjustments associated with the Company's organizational changes. For the year ended December 31, 2018, normalized net income was $1.7 million compared with $0.8 million, up 107.2%. Normalized net income was $0.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2018 and $0.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2017.

This press release includes non-GAAP financial measures that are not in accordance with, nor an alternate to, generally accepted accounting principles and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. They are limited in value because they exclude charges that have a material effect on our reported results and, therefore, should not be relied upon as the sole financial measures to evaluate our financial results. The non-GAAP financial measures are meant to supplement, and to be viewed in conjunction with, GAAP financial results. A reconciliation of our non-GAAP measures is included in an attachment to this press release.

References to 2017 without further specifications are to the twelve months ending December 31, 2017.
