Conformis Reports Preliminary Second Quarter Revenue Results, Amendment to Credit Agreement

Earnings Call to be Hosted on August 5, 2020

BILLERICA, Mass., July 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Conformis, Inc. (NASDAQ:CFMS), a medical technology company that uses its proprietary iFit Image-to-Implant technology platform to develop, manufacture and sell joint replacement implants designed to fit each patient’s unique anatomy, today announced preliminary, unaudited, revenue results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Expected Q2 Summary:

  • Total revenue of approximately $19.5 million, down 1% year-over-year on a reported and constant currency basis

  • Royalty revenue of $9.7 million, including a royalty settlement of $9.6 million

  • Product revenue of approximately $9.7 million, down 50% year-over-year on a reported and constant currency basis

    • U.S. product revenue of approximately $8.3 million, down 52% year-over-year on a reported basis

    • Rest of world product revenue of approximately $1.4 million, down 34% year-over-year on a reported basis and 33% on a constant currency basis

“As expected, the second quarter was impacted by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic,” said Mark Augusti, President and Chief Executive Officer.  “While we were pleased to see a fairly quick resumption of scheduled orthopedic procedures in May and June, we anticipate volumes to remain under pressure for the remainder of the year.”

“In order to better describe the revenue performance underlying the quarter Conformis is providing the following monthly global product revenue year-over-year growth rates:  April down 94%, May down 39%, and June down 9%. It should be noted that we continue to withhold any comment about future performance.  Clearly there was some correlation with the resumption of elective procedures; however, we cannot predict the pace of further resumption, the risk of further shutdowns in procedures and the geographic and regional uncertainty.”

Credit Agreement Amendment

Conformis is pleased to announce that, in recognition of the economic impact of COVID-19 on Conformis’ business, the Company has successfully amended the quarterly financial covenants contained in the Loan and Security Agreement, dated June 25, 2019, with Innovatus Life Sciences Lending Fund I, LP (“Innovatus”), as collateral agent and lender, East West Bank, and other lenders party thereto from time to time.

“For companies with credit facilities, the impact of COVID-19 on business operations has undoubtedly made it difficult for many of them to satisfy some or all of their financial covenants. We reported on March 23, 2020, that we may not be able to meet our 2Q revenue covenant and would work with Innovatus to modify our credit facility.  I am pleased that we have been able to come to agreement that better reflects current economic realities,” said Augusti. “This is an indication of the good and cooperative partnership we have with Innovatus.”
