LAFAYETTE, La., May 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Viemed Healthcare, Inc. (the “Company” or “Viemed”) (NASDAQ:VMD and TSX: VMD.TO), a national leader in respiratory care and technology-enabled home medical equipment services, today announced its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2023.

Operational highlights (all dollar amounts are USD):

Net revenues attributable to the Company’s core business for the quarter ended March 31, 2023 were $39.6 million, a new Company record, and an increase of $9.4 million, or 31%, over the quarter ended March 31, 2022. Net revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2023 were up approximately 6% over the quarter ended December 31, 2022.
Net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2023 totaled $1.5 million. Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter ended March 31, 2023 totaled $8.3 million, a 15% increase as compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2022 which benefited from COVID-19 related revenue and Provider Relief Fund income. A reconciliation of reported non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures can be found in the tables accompanying this press release.
The Company increased its cash balance by approximately 39% to $23.5 million at March 31, 2023 compared to $16.9 million at December 31, 2022, and increased its overall working capital balance to $23.3 million at March 31, 2023 compared to $20.9 million at December 31, 2022. The Company had no long term debt outstanding as of March 31, 2023. The Company recently announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Tennessee based Home Medical Products, Inc. (“HMP”), a large regional provider of respiratory focused home medical solutions, which generated annual net revenues of approximately $28 million in 2022. The Company expects to generate net revenues attributable to its core business of approximately $40.2 million to $41.2 million during the second quarter of 2023, excluding the impact from any acquired revenues during the period.

“Our recently announced operating results demonstrate that the core business is firing on all cylinders,” said Casey Hoyt, Viemed’s CEO. “We are excited to amplify our robust organic growth through accretive acquisitions that create powerful revenue synergies, diversify our offerings, and build upon strong relationships with stakeholders. Our recent acquisition initiatives are the natural progression of strategic investments that create a better experience for patients, physicians, and payors, and will ultimately allow us to expand care to those in need.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release refers to “Adjusted EBITDA”, which is a financial measure that is not prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”). Management believes Adjusted EBITDA provides helpful information with respect to the Company’s operating performance as viewed by management, including a view of the Company’s business that is not dependent on the impact of the Company’s capitalization structure and items that are not part of the Company’s day-to-day operations. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA (i) to compare the Company’s operating performance on a consistent basis, (ii) to calculate incentive compensation for the Company’s employees, (iii) for planning purposes, including the preparation of the Company’s internal annual operating budget, and (iv) to evaluate the performance and effectiveness of the Company’s operational strategies. Accordingly, management believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information in understanding and evaluating the Company’s operating performance in the same manner as management. In calculating Adjusted EBITDA, certain items (mostly non-cash) are excluded from net income including interest, taxes, stock based compensation, and depreciation of property and equipment. Beginning with financial results reported for periods in fiscal year 2023, Adjusted EBITDA also excludes transaction costs and expenses related to acquisition and integration efforts associated with recently announced or completed acquisitions. This modification enables investors to compare period-over-period results on a more consistent basis without the effects of acquisitions. We have recast Adjusted EBITDA for prior periods when reported to conform to the modified presentation.

The following table is a reconciliation of net income (loss), the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure, to Adjusted EBITDA, on a historical basis for the periods indicated:

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP. It is not a measurement of the Company’s financial performance under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to revenue or net income, as applicable, or any other performance measures derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies or businesses. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s operating results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect the impact of certain cash charges resulting from matters the Company considers not to be indicative of ongoing operations; and other companies in the Company’s industry may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.
