1110 Days ago

SAN DIEGO, May 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Harrow Health, Inc. (NASDAQ: HROW) today reported results for the first quarter 2019.

First Quarter 2019 and Other Recent Notable Highlights:

  • Consolidated revenue increased 39% year-over-year to a new record of $12.3 million
  • ImprimisRx ophthalmology revenue increased 57% year-over-year to a new record of $11.0 million, driven by record unit volumes delivered and increasing chronic care prescription refills
  • ImprimisRx launched five new ophthalmic formulations at the recent American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery meeting
  • Gross Margins of 68%, an all-time high
  • Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) of $753 thousand, a new record
  • Net Income (GAAP) was $11.4 million
  • Total Balance Sheet assets of $66.5 million, fourth quarter 2018 ended at $49.5 million

Mark L. Baum, CEO of Harrow Health, commented, “Our 2019 year is off to an excellent start as revenues, gross margins, and Adjusted EBITDA reached record highs during the first quarter.  Strong operational performance returned us to positive Adjusted EBITDA and these numbers are expected improve in the back half of this year.  Our asset portfolio produced gains from the deconsolidation of Melt Pharmaceuticals and appreciation of the 3.5 million shares we own in Eton Pharmaceuticals, which drove Net Income for the second consecutive quarter.”

Mr. Baum concluded, “The ImprimisRx ophthalmology brand and national platform has never been stronger and more valuable.  The recent ASCRS meeting in San Diego was a tremendous success, in terms of new product launches, podium recognition by key opinion leaders, and the over 600 RSVPs for our ‘open house social’ where ImprimisRx customers had the opportunity to share with one another how ImprimisRx is helping them deliver fantastic and affordable outcomes for their patients.  In the surgery suite and the clinical setting, more and more ophthalmologists and optometrists across the country are experiencing the benefits of integrating the ImprimisRx platform of pharmaceutical solutions in their practices to solve unmet needs.  Finally, in my view, the past 90 days have been the most productive and dynamic period of development in the history of ImprimisRx and Harrow Health in general.  We are well positioned to continue to produce shareholder value from a host of catalysts we hope to discuss throughout the year.”

Adjusted E(L)BITDA

In addition to the company's results of operations determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), which are presented and discussed above, management also utilizes adjusted EBITDA, an unaudited financial measure that is not calculated in accordance with GAAP, to evaluate the company's financial results and performance and to plan and forecast future periods. Adjusted EBITDA is considered a "non-GAAP" financial measure within the meaning of Regulation G promulgated by the SEC.  Management believes that this non-GAAP financial measure reflects an additional way of viewing aspects of the company's operations that, when viewed with GAAP results, provides a more complete understanding of the company's results of operations and the factors and trends affecting its business.  Management believes adjusted EBITDA provides meaningful supplemental information regarding the company's performance because (i) it allows for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision-making; (ii) it excludes the impact of non-cash or, when specified, non-recurring items that are not directly attributable to the company's core operating performance and that may obscure trends in the company's core operating performance; and (iii) it is used by institutional investors and the analyst community to help analyze the company's results.  However, adjusted EBITDA and any other non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Further, non-GAAP financial measures used by the company and the manner in which they are calculated may differ from the non-GAAP financial measures or the calculations of the same non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, including the company's competitors.

The company defines adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) excluding the effects of interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, other income (expense) and, if any and when specified, other non-recurring income or expense items.  The company believes that the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure to adjusted EBITDA is net loss. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations and should not be considered as an alternative to gross profit or net loss as a measure of operating performance or to net cash provided by (used in) operating, investing or financing activities as a measure of ability to meet cash needs.

The following is a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure to the most comparable GAAP measure, net loss, for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and for the same period in 2018 (in thousands):

  For the three months ended
March 31, 2019
For the three months ended
