    • Sales revenue of $18.4 million, up 64.9% over the same period in 2013

2014 Financial Highlights

  • Total revenue of $112.5 million, up 49.2% versus 2013
    • Sales revenue of $73.1 million, up 62.8% versus 2013
    • Rental revenue of $39.4 million, up 29.2% versus 2013
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $24.0 million, representing 78.3% growth versus 2013 and a 21.3% return on revenue

“We achieved another solid quarter of revenue growth, which provided a strong finish to 2014. Our revenue results exceeded our guidance for the year, largely due to stronger than anticipated growth in our domestic and international business-to-business sales channels in the fourth quarter,” said President and Chief Executive Officer, Raymond Huggenberger. “2014 was a transformational year for Inogen and I am proud of our team and the results we achieved. As the only oxygen concentrator manufacturer that currently employs a direct-to-consumer sales and marketing strategy in the U.S., we were successful in increasing patient demand and brand awareness for Inogen solutions.”

“As we enter 2015, we have multiple avenues with the potential to drive our growth including the continued expansion of our direct-to-consumer and physician referral networks, increasing adoption across our domestic and international business-to-business channels, additional private payor contracts, and new product development,” concluded Huggenberger.

Recent Business Highlights

  • Total units sold in 2014 were approximately 33,200, an increase of 72.9% over 2013, reflecting the strong consumer demand for the Company’s products across all channels.
  • Rental patient population increased to approximately 28,400 as of year-end 2014, reflecting growth of 33.3% over 2013.
  • Received coverage for insurance reimbursement for the Inogen One G3 portable oxygen concentrator in Germany, estimated to be the second largest market in Europe for medical oxygen systems.
  • Entered into a lease agreement for an additional 24,000 square feet in Richardson, Texas to be used as the Company’s primary manufacturing facility. The new lease agreement reduces the average per square foot cost for manufacturing, while providing for capacity expansion.

Fourth Quarter Financial Results

Total revenue for the three months ending December 31, 2014 rose 47.3% to $29.1 million, from $19.8 million in 2013. Total units sold increased to approximately 8,900 in Q4 2014, up 85.4% from Q4 2013. Gross margin was 47.4% in the fourth quarter of 2014 compared to 51.5% in 2013; this decline in gross margin percentage was primarily due to the lower rental reimbursement rates year over year, the increased mix towards business-to-business accounts which have a lower average selling price, and sales of used equipment at lower gross margins.

Operating expense was $12.4 million, or 42.5% of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2014 versus $9.6 million, or 48.7% of revenue, in 2013. Research and development expense was $0.7 million in the quarter versus $0.6 million in 2013. Sales and marketing expense was $6.4 million in the quarter versus $5.1 million in 2013. The increase was primarily associated with an increase in personnel-related expenses in sales and sales support as well as media-related marketing costs. General and administrative expense was $5.3 million in the quarter compared to $4.0 million in 2013. The increase was primarily associated with an increase in personnel-related expenses and incremental professional services costs associated with being a public company. The increase also included approximately $0.4 million in one-time costs associated with the follow-on offering that closed in November 2014.

Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended December 31, 2014 rose 54.9% to $5.0 million, from $3.2 million in 2013. 

Net income for the three months ended December 31, 2014 was $1.5 million, or $0.07 per diluted common share. In the fourth quarter of 2014, Inogen recorded a net tax benefit of $0.2 million due to a reduced effective tax rate for 2014. The Company’s effective tax rate for 2014 was 32.1% from approximately 39.1% booked through the nine months ended September 30, 2014. The substantial improvement in the effective tax rate contributed to net income in the fourth quarter of 2014. This compares with a net income of $22.0 million, or $0.79 diluted net income per share attributable to common stockholders, for the three months ended December 31, 2013. The Company revalued its deferred tax asset valuation allowance at year end 2013, which resulted in a net tax benefit of $21.7 million in Q4 2013. 

Full Year 2014 Financial Results

Total revenue for the year ended December 31, 2014 rose 49.2% to $112.5 million, from $75.4 million in 2013.  Total units sold in 2014 were approximately 33,200, an increase of 72.9% over 2013, in part reflecting the strong consumer demand across all channels.

Gross margin was 49.3% for the year ended December 31, 2014 compared to 51.7% in 2013. This decline was primarily driven by a lower rental gross margin which declined to 53.5% in 2014 from 60.2% in 2013, primarily due to the lower rental reimbursement rates year over year, as well as a decline in rental revenues as a percentage of overall revenues. The decline in rental gross margin was partially offset by an increase in sales gross margin to 47.1% in 2014 from 45.9% in 2013.     

Operating expense was $45.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2014 versus $34.5 million in 2013, a 30.4% increase. Research and development expense was $3.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2014 versus $2.4 million in 2013.  Sales and marketing expense was $24.1 million in 2014 versus $18.4 million in 2013. General and administrative expense was $17.9 million in 2014 compared to $13.8 million in 2013.

Adjusted EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2014 rose 78.3% to $24.0 million, from $13.4 million in 2013.

Net income for the year ended December 31, 2014 was $6.8 million, or $0.35 per diluted common share on a pro-forma non-GAAP basis, compared with a net income of $25.4 million, or $1.55 per diluted common share on a pro-forma non-GAAP basis for the 2013 period, including the one-time tax asset benefit attributable to common stockholders. Adjusted net income (non-GAAP) in 2014 was $6.6 million, compared to $3.6 million in 2013. 

Cash, cash equivalents, investments and restricted cash were $56.8 million as of December 31, 2014, compared to $13.5 million as of December 31, 2013.

Audit Committee Investigation

As previously disclosed, during the first quarter of 2015, management discovered certain potential accounting matters, prompting the Audit Committee, with the assistance of independent advisors, to commence an internal investigation. Specifically, management found that certain direct-to-consumer sales representatives submitted modified documentation in violation of Inogen policies.

The Audit Committee’s investigation is now complete.  Its principal finding is that five Inogen direct-to-consumer sales representatives falsified or improperly modified sales and rental order documentation and circumvented Inogen’s order entry process.  Revenue in the fourth quarter of 2014 was reduced by $0.3 million including prior period adjustments. The net income impact was a reduction of $0.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2014. Substantially all of this revenue will be recognized when the corrected documentation is finalized in 2015. The employees responsible for this conduct have been terminated.  The investigation found that the Company’s senior executives did not know of or participate in this conduct.  The Audit Committee’s investigation did not reveal systemic falsification or alteration of sales and rental order documentation by other sales representatives.  

Financial Outlook for 2015

The Company increased its 2015 revenue guidance to a range of $133 to $137 million, which represents year over year growth ranging from 18.2% to 21.7%. This compares to the previous revenue expectation of $130 to $135 million which was provided on December 15, 2014.

Inogen confirmed its 2015 Adjusted EBITDA to a range of $27 to $30 million, representing an approximate increase of 12.7% to 25.2% over 2014. The Company confirmed its 2015 net income to be in the range of $8 to $9.5 million, representing an approximate increase of 17.2% to 39.2% over 2014. The Company expects an effective tax rate in 2015 of approximately 35%. The Company expects additional general and administrative costs due to the audit committee investigation of approximately $1.0 to $1.5 million, primarily in the first quarter of 2015. 

The Company confirmed its expectation of net positive cash flow for 2015 with no additional equity capital required to meet its current plan.

Cautionary Note Concerning Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including, among others, statements regarding Inogen’s current estimates of full year 2015 revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, effective tax rate, cash flow, and net income; current estimates of the audit committee investigation costs; statements regarding the anticipated growth drivers of Inogen’s business model; expectations for increased adoption across domestic and international business to business  channels; expectations regarding new private payor contracts; and projections for new product offerings. Forward-looking statements are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from currently anticipated results, including but not limited to, risks arising from the possibility that Inogen will not realize anticipated revenue; the impact of reduced reimbursement rates, including in connection with the implementation of the competitive bidding and the newly released Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) rules; the possible loss of key employees, customers, or suppliers; intellectual property risks if Inogen is unable to secure and maintain patent or other intellectual property protection for the intellectual property used in its products; and risks relating to a recently filed securities class action lawsuit against us and certain members of our executive management team in United States District Court for the Central District of California. In addition, Inogen’s business is subject to numerous additional risks and uncertainties, including, among others, risks relating to market acceptance of its products; its ability to successfully launch new products and applications; competition; its sales, marketing and distribution capabilities; its planned sales, marketing, and research and development activities; interruptions or delays in the supply of components or materials for, or manufacturing of, its products; seasonal variations in customer operations; unanticipated increases in costs or expenses; and risks associated with international operations. Information on these and additional risks, uncertainties, and other information affecting Inogen’s business and operating results are contained in Inogen’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 and in Inogen’s subsequent reports on Form 10-Q and Form 8-K, including Inogen’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014 to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date hereof. Inogen disclaims any obligation to update these forward-looking statements except as may be required by law.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Inogen has presented certain financial information in accordance with U.S. GAAP and also on a non-GAAP basis for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2013 and 2014. Management believes that non-GAAP financial measures, taken in conjunction with U.S. GAAP financial measures, provide useful information for both management and investors by excluding certain non-cash and other expenses that are not indicative of Inogen’s core operating results. Management uses non-GAAP measures to compare Inogen’s performance relative to forecasts and strategic plans and to benchmark Inogen’s performance externally against competitors. Non-GAAP information is not prepared under a comprehensive set of accounting rules and should only be used to supplement an understanding of Inogen’s operating results as reported under U.S. GAAP. Inogen encourages investors to carefully consider its results under U.S. GAAP, as well as its supplemental non-GAAP information and the reconciliation between these presentations, to more fully understand its business. Reconciliations between U.S. GAAP and non-GAAP results are presented in the accompanying table of this release. For future periods, Inogen is unable to provide a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income as a result of the uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability of, the amounts of interest income, interest expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, provisions for income taxes, and certain other infrequently occurring items, such as acquisition related costs, that may be incurred in the future.
