Management Commentary

“We continued our solid execution in the second quarter, with year over year improvement in all of our key operational metrics," stated Paul R. Gudonis, Myomo's chairman and chief executive officer. "Our focus for the rest of the year is to continue to grow the business, while managing our operating expenses and building a pipeline of Medicare Part B patients in anticipation of being able to fit them with their own MyoPro, potentially within the next six to 12 months. That effort began during the second quarter," added Gudonis.

"Additionally, our Chinese joint venture partner is moving quickly to launch its business development efforts, establish manufacturing and build the supply chain. We received initial orders from the JV company for MyoPro Control Units, which are a core component of the MyoPro product line, and our MARK clinical units for approximately $300,000 in total. The JV company is getting ready to produce the clinical version of our product line, which they expect to supply to rehab hospitals throughout China."

Revenue for the second quarter of 2023 was $6.0 million, up 62% compared with the second quarter of 2022. Excluding the final payment of the technology license fee in the second quarter of 2023, product revenue of $4.2 million increased 15% compared with the same period a year ago. Growth in product revenue was driven by a higher number of revenue units, offset by a lower average selling price (ASP). Myomo recognized revenue on 97 MyoPro units in the second quarter of 2023, up 21% over the same quarter a year ago. Year-to-date revenues were $9.4 million, up 25% compared with the same period a year ago.

Gross margin for the second quarter of 2023 was 71.8%, compared with 65.3% for the second quarter of 2022. The increase was driven primarily by the license fee payment offset by a lower average selling price and higher inventory and warranty reserves. Year-to-date gross margin was 70.1%, compared with 66.0% for the same period a year ago.

Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2023 were $5.4 million, an increase of 2% compared with the second quarter of 2022. The increase was driven primarily by higher incentive compensation accruals, offset by lower advertising expenses. Advertising costs of $0.8 million decreased 18% compared with the second quarter of 2022. Cost per pipeline add was $2,074, a decrease of 57%, compared with the second quarter of 2022. Year-to-date operating expenses were $10.4 million, a decrease of 2% compared with the same period a year ago.

Operating loss for the second quarter of 2023 was $1.1 million, compared with an operating loss of $2.9 million for the second quarter of 2022. Net loss for the second quarter of 2023 was $1.0 million, or $0.04 per share, compared with a net loss of $2.9 million, or $0.42 per share, for the second quarter of 2022. Year-to-date operating loss was $3.8 million, compared with an operating loss of $5.6 million for the same period a year ago. Year-to-date net loss was $3.7 million, or $0.14 per share, compared with a net loss of $5.7 million, or $0.83 per share, for the same period a year ago.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2023 was $(0.8) million, compared with $(2.5) million for the second quarter of 2022. Year-to-date Adjusted EBITDA was $(3.2) million, compared with $(4.9) million for the same period a year ago. A reconciliation of GAAP net loss to this non-GAAP financial measure appears below.

Operations Update

The patient pipeline was 969 patients as of June 30, 2023. Beginning in 2023, the pipeline only represents patients with insurance payers, Veterans Administration hospitals or orthotics and prosthetics suppliers that have previously paid for a MyoPro. The comparable patient pipeline as of June 30, 2022 was 761 patients, representing an increase of 27% year over year. There were 408 patients added to the pipeline in the second quarter of 2023, an increase of 57% compared with 319 patients with previous payers in the same period a year ago.

Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Update

On June 30, 2023, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services ("CMS") issued a proposed rule that expands the previous definition of a brace to include products such as a MyoPro that will both support and help move a patient's arm. There is a 60-day public comment period before the proposed rule can be finalized. If the proposed rule is adopted, and should there be no change to how braces are reimbursed, we expect the MyoPro to be reimbursed on a lump sum basis, similar to all other payers currently reimbursing for the MyoPro. In addition, CMS stated that it intends to publish a fee for the MyoPro billing codes, L8701 and L8702, at an upcoming public meeting. The next such public meeting has not been scheduled, but is expected to be held in late 2023.

The Company has filed claims with CMS' regional billing contractors, known as the DME MAC's, for six MyoPros provided to Medicare Part B patients. These claims are in process, with review of the medical documentation underway as required for individual consideration. "With the proposed new rule now announced by CMS, we will inform Medicare Part B patients about their opportunity to obtain a MyoPro while we await a decision on the pending claims, finalization of the proposed rule and the publication of a fee," stated Mr. Gudonis. The Company reports that more than 30 patients are currently in the Medicare pipeline, which is separate from the main patient pipeline, with additional patients expected to be added during the third quarter.

Business Outlook

“The backlog entering the third quarter is slightly higher than the backlog entering the second quarter, but given the order mix in the second quarter, the ASP in the backlog is slightly lower, " added Mr. Gudonis. "As a result, we expect to achieve modest year-over-year revenue growth in the third quarter, while sequential revenue growth will depend on the number of new orders during the third quarter that can be delivered for revenue given the anticipated ASP. Meeting our target for full year product revenue growth of 20% to 30% will depend on the number of insurance authorizations we receive in the next few months."

Cash Position

Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments as of June 30, 2023 were $9.0 million. Cash used in operating activities was $0.3 million for the second quarter of 2023, compared with $2.6 million for the second quarter of 2022.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Myomo is providing financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP. This information includes Adjusted EBITDA. This non-GAAP financial measure is not in accordance with, or an alternative for, GAAP and may be different from similar non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Myomo believes the use of this non-GAAP financial measure provides supplementary information for investors to use in evaluating operating performance and in comparing Myomo’s financial measures with other companies in its industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures. Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA adjusted for stock-based compensation expense and loss on equity investment. This non-GAAP financial measure is not meant to be considered superior to or a substitute for results of operations prepared in accordance with GAAP, and should be viewed in conjunction with GAAP financial measures. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. A reconciliation of GAAP to the non-GAAP financial measures has been provided in the tables included as part of this press release.

About Myomo

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements regarding the Company’s future business expectations, including expectations for third quarter and full year 2023 revenue, as well as expectations regarding the payment of claims by the DME MAC's and finalization of the proposed rule and the publishing of a fee from CMS, which are subject to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements are only predictions and may differ materially from actual results due to a variety of factors.

These factors include, among other things:

  • We have a history of operating losses and our financial statements for the period ended June 30, 2023 include disclosures regarding there being substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern;
  • our ability to achieve reimbursement from third-party payers for our products, including CMS for Medicare Part B patients;
  • our ability to continue to serve patients with Medicare Advantage insurance plans CMS does not cover the MyoPro;
  • our revenue concentration with a particular insurance payer as a result of focusing our efforts on patients with insurers who have previously reimbursed for the MyoPro;
  • our ability to continue normal operations and patient interactions without supply chain disruption in order to deliver and fit our custom-fabricated device;
  • our marketing and commercialization efforts;
  • our dependence upon external sources for the financing of our operations, to the extent that we do not achieve or maintain cash flow breakeven;
  • our ability to effectively execute our business plan and scale up our operations;
  • our expectations as to our product development programs, and;
  • general market, economic, environmental and social factors that may affect the evaluation, fitting, delivery and sale of our products to patients.

More information about these and other factors that potentially could affect our financial results is included in Myomo’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including those contained in the risk factors section of the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K, quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and other filings with the Commission. The Company cautions readers not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made. Although the forward-looking statements in this release of financial information are based on our beliefs, assumptions and expectations, taking into account all information currently available to us, we cannot guarantee future transactions, results, performance, achievements or outcomes. No assurance can be made to any investor by anyone that the expectations reflected in our forward-looking statements will be attained, or that deviations from them will not be material or adverse. The Company disclaims any obligation subsequently to revise any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of such statements or to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events.
