Sharps Compliance Reports Fiscal 2022 First Quarter Results

First quarter revenue of $13.9 million increased 6% from the prior year
Retail market billings increased 6% for the quarter
Professional market billings grew 9% compared to prior year first quarter
Unused medication revenue increased 11%
Route-based customer locations increased 17% to 16,600
Completed secondary offering for net proceeds of $17.0 million
Cash balance of $41.2 million at September 30, 2021
Recently announced acquisition of Affordable Medical Waste, a full-service, route-based provider of medical waste solutions in Indiana

HOUSTON, Texas, October 27, 2021 - Sharps Compliance Corp. (NASDAQ: SMED) (“Sharps” or the “Company”), a leading full-service national provider of comprehensive waste management solutions including medical, pharmaceutical and hazardous, today reported financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2022, ended September 30, 2021.

Revenue in the first quarter of fiscal 2022 grew 6% to $13.9 million, compared to $13.2 million in the same prior year quarter. Customer billings of $12.7 million decreased 5% compared to $13.4 million for the same prior year quarter. First quarter 2022 gross margin was 25%, a decrease from gross margin of 28% in the first quarter of 2021. Gross margin was negatively impacted in the current quarter by the effect of revenue recognition, where there was a higher proportion of immunization related mailbacks returned, with a lower gross margin upon return compared to immunization related mailbacks shipped, which generate a higher up front gross margin. On a normalized basis (excluding the impact of revenue recognition), gross margin would have been 27%. SG&A increased by approximately $0.4 million or 11% to $4.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2022, compared to the same prior year quarter. The increase in SG&A is related primarily to continued investment in sales and marketing and to a $0.2 million increase in the accrual of management incentive compensation.

The Company reported an operating loss of $1.0 million in the first quarter of 2022, compared to an operating loss of $0.4 million in the first quarter of 2021. Sharps recorded a net loss of $0.8 million, or ($0.04) per basic and diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2022, as compared to a net loss of $0.3 million, or ($0.02) per basic and diluted share in the first quarter of fiscal 2021. Sharps recorded an EBITDA loss of $0.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2022 compared to EBITDA of $0.1 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2021. (See Reconciliation of Net Loss to EBITDA in the supplemental table included at the end of this release).

On August 30, 2021, Sharps announced it closed an underwritten secondary offering of a total of 2,070,000 shares of its common stock at a public offering price of $8.65 per share including the exercise in full by the underwriter of its option to purchase 270,000 shares to cover over-allotments in connection with the offering. After the underwriting discount and before estimated offering expenses payable by the Company, Sharps received net proceeds of approximately $17.0 million.

David P. Tusa, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sharps, stated, “Our first quarter results are in line with our expectations reflecting slower immunization revenue for the September quarter versus the two preceding sequential quarters. To provide some context, in the March and June 2021 quarters, which to date represent the height of our COVID-19 related mailback business, immunization billings were $27.9 million and generated $24.6 million in related mailback revenue. In the September 2021 quarter, immunization orders were $1.8 million and generated $3.1 million in mailback revenue consistent with the slower COVID-19 immunization administration. Additionally, we faced a tough performance comparison to the prior year first quarter, when we experienced increased volume for our services and solutions related to COVID-19 volumes generated in our Long-Term Care market and from labs performing COVID-19 related testing. On a positive note, our route-based customer locations increased almost 17% to 16,600.

Tusa added, “We were very pleased to see a return to growth for our unused medication solution offerings for the quarter of 11% year-over-year and 31% sequentially. We believe we will see continued growth in this offering in fiscal year 2022 as retail pharmacies and long-term care refocus on the proper and cost-effective disposal of ultimate user unused medication.

“Well before COVID-19, we began growing our infrastructure and route-based footprint to reach a larger portion of the small-to-medium quantity generator marketplace. As such, we currently service 37 states, or 80%, of the US population with our route-based offering. We’ve methodically enhanced our route-based reach organically and are currently focused on strategic acquisitions. We are excited about our recently announced tuck-in acquisition of Affordable Medical Waste (“AMW”), an Indiana-based full-service route-based provider of medical waste disposal services. This tuck-in acquisition extends our presence in the Midwest and significantly improves route density. The addition of AMW is consistent with our long-term growth strategy to complete complementary acquisitions, and we look forward to continuing to work our active pipeline of additional opportunities.”

First Quarter Review

Professional market billings increased 9% to $4.5 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2022 as compared to $4.1 million in the first quarter of 2021. The growth in Professional market billings in the current quarter was offset by (i) about $0.1 million decrease in billings for route based services to lab customers related to COVID-19 related volume decreases compared to last year and (ii) over $0.1 million lower billings for route based services to customers for hazardous waste activity that was delayed until the December 2021 quarter due to nationwide sporadic / temporary moratoriums on accepting hazardous waste streams destined for incineration.

Retail market billings grew 6% to $3.9 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2022 as compared to $3.6 million in the same prior year period. Within the retail market, immunization related orders grew 9% to $1.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2022 compared to $1.6 million in the prior year.

Pharmaceutical Manufacturer market billings decreased by $0.7 million to $0.5 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2022 as compared to $1.2 million in the same prior year period due to the timing of inventory builds for patient support programs, driving most of the $0.9 million decrease in mailback solution billings.

Long-Term Care billings decreased by $0.5 million to $0.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2022 compared to $1.3 million in the prior year period, related primarily to heightened volumes of COVID-19 related waste management and ancillary supplies in the prior year, about half of which impacted the route-based business, with the remainder impacting other ancillary solutions.

Home Health Care market billings decreased $0.4 million to $1.9 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2022 compared to $2.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 due to the timing of distributor orders.

Billings for Unused Medications grew 11% to $2.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2022 as compared to $2.4 million in the same prior year period. Sequentially, billings for Unused Medications, which includes MedSafe, grew 31% in the first quarter of fiscal 2022 as compared to $2.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021.

Financial Flexibility and a Strong Balance Sheet

Cash was $41.2 million at September 30, 2021, compared to cash of $27.8 million at June 30, 2021. The Company had working capital of $44.3 million at September 30, 2021 compared to working capital of $27.9 million at June 30, 2021.

Mr. Tusa concluded, “Looking forward, the COVID-19 related immunization business landscape remains fluid. Future immunization-related orders should be driven by the timing and volume of the continued roll out of COVID-19 boosters and the approval and distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine to children ages 5 to 11. As a point of reference, only 7% of the 191 million fully vaccinated Americans have received a booster to-date. We remain confident that we are well positioned to support our customers, with our high level of mailback inventory and increased treatment capacity to meet the continuing demands of the immunization business.

“Finally, we’re energized to capitalize on the opportunities we’re seeing to grow our leadership position in the marketplace. Our comprehensive service offerings, enhanced infrastructure and expanded treatment capacity have increased our ability to win new and larger customers and continue to effectively service our existing customer base. Likewise, our strong balance sheet provides us with the opportunity to execute on our broader acquisition strategy as we continue to work our active pipeline of opportunities.”

*The Company defines earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) as net income (loss), plus income tax expense (benefit), net interest expense, and depreciation and amortization. Other companies may define EBITDA differently. EBITDA is presented because it is a financial measure that is frequently requested by third parties. However, EBITDA is not considered under generally accepted accounting principles as a primary measure of an entity’s financial results, and accordingly, EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to operating income, net income, or cash flows as determined under generally accepted accounting principles and as reported by the Company.
