Zynex Announces Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results

LONE TREE, CO--(Marketwired - Nov 7, 2013) - Zynex, Inc. (OTCQB: ZYXI), a provider and developer of non-invasive medical devices for electrotherapy and stroke rehabilitation, neurological diagnosis and cardiac monitoring, announces its third quarter 2013 financial results. 

The Company's total net revenue decreased 49% to $5,191,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2013 from $10,102,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2012. Year to date net revenue of $18,331,000 decreased 37% as compared to the prior year to date net revenue of $29,072,000. The decline in net revenue for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 as compared to the same periods in 2012 was a direct result of the decline in orders from the Company's Zynex Medical electrotherapy products.

The Company reported a gross profit of $3,645,000, or 70% of net revenue, for the third quarter of 2013, and $12,711,000, or 69% of net revenue, for the first nine months of 2013, as compared to a gross profit of $7,886,000, or 78% of net revenue, for the third quarter of 2012 and $23,257,000, or 80% of net revenue, for the first nine months of 2012. The decrease in the Company's third quarter and year to date 2013 gross profit percentage, as compared to the same periods in 2012, was primarily a result of the lower sales volume for the periods, as the Company had less net revenue to cover manufacturing costs and incremental expenses incurred because of an increase to the Company's allowance for obsolete inventory, due to excess quantities remaining in the field. 

The Company reported Selling, General and Administrative (SG&A) expenses of $4,713,000 or 91% of net revenue, for the three months ended September 30, 2013, and $16,699,000, or 91% of net revenue, for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, as compared to $7,174,000, or 71% of net revenue, for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and $21,127,000, or 73% of net revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. Decreases in the Company's SG&A expenses during the third quarter and year to date 2013 as compared to the same periods in 2012, were primarily attributable to lower sales commissions, based on the decrease in orders and net revenue, and a reduction in headcount.

The Company generated a third quarter 2013 loss from operations of $1,068,000, loss before income taxes of $1,204,000 and net loss of $738,000, or $0.02 per share, versus a third quarter of 2012 income from operations of $712,000, income before income taxes of $587,000 and net income of $358,000, or $0.01 per share. The Company generated a 2013 year to date loss from operations of $3,988,000, loss before income taxes of $4,396,000 and net loss of $2,758,000, or $0.09 per share, versus a 2012 year to date income from operations of $2,130,000, income before income taxes of $1,824,000 and net income of $1,151,000, or $0.04 per share.

Thomas Sandgaard, CEO stated: "Zynex has encountered industry challenges this year related to health care reform and reimbursement changes that negatively affected the demand for our electrotherapy products. These industry factors have had a negative impact on our financial results, causing us to report significantly less revenue than in the prior year comparable periods and a current year to date net loss. However, we have seen orders for our core Zynex Medical revenue base stabilize and have focused on capitalizing on new opportunities across all of our divisions. In our Zynex Medical sales channel, we added new products that are less impacted by insurance reimbursement. In Zynex NeuroDiagnostics, we expanded our sales force and are distributing electroencephalography (EEG) devices; sleep diagnostic products, mobile sleep diagnostic devices and a sleep apnea treatment device. In our Zynex Billing and Consulting division we expect increased service-based revenue going forward through the addition of medical practitioner billing contracts."

Mr. Sandgaard continued, "We also continued to make adjustments to our fixed expenses during the third quarter and have lowered them by approximately $4.2 million annually. During the second quarter, we successfully renegotiated our existing building lease, in which, our base rent has been lowered and we are now operating in an approximate twelve month free rent period, which results in approximately $1.5 million of cash savings over the next twelve months, which began May of 2013. Because of these expense reductions, we have begun to feel the cash impact, as our cash flow from operations for the third quarter was positive and the balance on our revolving line of credit decreased as compared to the second quarter of this year. We are closely monitoring the demand for our Zynex Medical products, which may result in additional cost cutting measures in future periods, as we are committed to returning this company to profitability."
