Management Discussion
Gregg Lehman, executive chairman of the board, said, “We have continued to focus on redirecting our strategic emphasis toward efficient use of our pump fleet, improving our billing and collections process, and paying down our bank indebtedness. During the third quarter of 2017, we have made great progress in all these areas, specifically in our revenue collection process and bank indebtedness, as evident by our increased cash collections from our commercial payor business for the second consecutive quarter and our net debt reduction of $2.9 million. As I stated last quarter, as we become more efficient at collecting the revenue we produce and managing our cost structure, we will generate cash, which will allow InfuSystem to return to profitability and further accelerate debt reduction.” 

Dr. Lehman continued, “On a sequential basis, our performance metrics are reflecting meaningful progress. For the third quarter of 2017, general and administrative expenses are down $0.8 million, or 13.4%; cash collections were up $0.7 million, or 7%, for our commercial payors; and adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP performance metric) increased $0.8 million, or 26.2%, all compared to the second quarter of 2017. Gross margin for the quarter hit 62.8% as we continue to manage expenses aggressively.

“I am pleased with the traction that we are beginning to gain as we continue to effectively implement our new strategic initiatives. Our focus will continue to be to more efficiently manage our pump fleet, reduce operating expenses and better manage our working capital. Based on improved operational performance, we were able to reduce debt by an additional $2.9 million during the third quarter of 2017. On a year-to-date basis, we have reduced our net debt by $4.7 million. For the second consecutive quarter, I am pleased with our adjusted EBITDA at $3.9 million, an increase of 26.2%, from $3.1 million in the second quarter of 2017. As I have indicated on previous occasions, we have embarked on a process to recalibrate this business that will take some time. That said, the improving operational results lead me to believe we are heading in the right direction,” concluded Dr. Lehman.

Third Quarter Results
Net revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 were $17.6 million, an increase of $0.4 million, or 2.1%, compared to $17.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2016. During the period, net revenues from rentals increased $0.7 million, or 4.7%, compared to the same prior year period. The increase in net revenues from rentals can be largely attributed to (i) an overall increase in rental volume of $0.5 million with new and existing sites of therapy and (ii) an increase in pricing and collection impacts of $0.2 million. Net revenues from product sales were $2.3 million, a decrease of $0.3 million, compared to the same prior year period. 

Net collected rental revenues, or net revenues from rentals less provision for doubtful accounts (a non-GAAP financial measure), was $14.0 million in the third quarter of 2017, an increase of 3.7%, compared to $13.5 million in the third quarter of 2016.

Bad Debt for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 was $1.3 million, an increase of $0.2 million, compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2016. Bad Debt was 7.2% of revenues for the third quarter of 2017, compared to 6.4% for the same prior year period. This change is largely due to a higher mix of patient payors in our rental business, which generally have higher uncollectible rates than commercial payors. This was offset by a decrease in bad debt reserves related to our revised billing practices for Medicare accounts as required by SE1609. We now directly bill providers and not third-party payors for SE1609 related services. Because this is a dramatic change from prior practices, we have experienced a delay in providers acknowledging and paying under the new model. We continue to see improvements in collections from SE1609 providers since the initial implementation in July 2016, but nonetheless, we have adopted the practice of reserving for all SE1609 accounts receivable aged greater than 120 days. We believe the strategic shift to focusing additional resources on collection efforts will deliver a positive impact with respect to these SE1609 accounts receivables.

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2017 was $11.0 million, an increase of 6.3%, compared to $10.4 million for the same prior year period. As a percentage of net revenues, gross profit equaled 62.8% of total net revenues in the third quarter of 2017, compared to 60.3% in the prior year's comparable quarter. The increase in gross profit for the third quarter of 2017 was largely attributed to the increase in net revenues of $0.4 million for the period, as well as a decrease of $0.7 million in costs of pumps sold, offset by an increase of $0.5 million in product and supply costs.

For the third quarter of 2017, G&A expenses were $5.6 million, an increase of $0.3 million, or 5.6%, compared to the same prior year period. The increase in G&A expense versus the same prior year period was mainly attributable to stock compensation expense of $0.2 million and outside services of $0.1 million.

Other expenses for the third quarter of 2017 were $0.4 million, which was consistent with the same period in 2016. Selling and marketing expenses for the third quarter of 2017 were $2.3 million, a decrease of $0.2 million, or 9.2%, compared to the third quarter of 2016.

Net loss in the third quarter of 2017 was $0.1 million, or $(0.01) loss per diluted share, compared to net income of $0.1 million, or $0.00 income per diluted share, in the same prior year period. Adjusted net loss, excluding non-recurring items (a non-GAAP financial measure), was $0.2 million, or $(0.01) loss per diluted share, compared to adjusted net income of $0.1 million, or $0.00 income per diluted share, for the same prior year period.

For the third quarter of 2017, adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP financial measure) was $3.9 million, an increase of 13.2%, compared to $3.4 million for the same period in 2016. The Company utilizes adjusted net (loss) income and adjusted EBITDA as a means to measure its operating performance. A reconciliation from GAAP operating measures to adjusted net (loss) income and adjusted EBITDA, both non-GAAP measures, can be found in the appendix attached to this press release. Adjustments during the third quarter of 2017 included, among other adjustments, expenses for severance and early termination fees from paying down capital leases.

Financial Condition
Net cash provided by operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, was $4.1 million, an increase of 9.8%, compared to $3.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. This increase is due to higher amounts of non-cash expenses (such as amortization expenses) and other liabilities in the current period, which were offset by decreases in deferred income taxes and other current liabilities. The Company continues to focus on increasing utilization on available assets, thereby reducing the need for significant investment in medical equipment and allowing the Company to focus on continuing paying down debt.

Net cash provided by investing activities was $0.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared to $4.7 million used in the nine months ended September 30, 2016. This $5.4 million increase was largely due to $2.8 million less investment in IT, reduced purchases of medical equipment of $1.3 million and an increase in proceeds from the sale of medical equipment of $1.0 million, and increased pump sales during the third quarter of 2017.

Net cash used in financing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, was $7.4 million, compared to net cash provided by financing activities of $1.2 million for the same prior year period. This change is primarily attributable to the cash proceeds received from our decision to borrow from the revolving credit line under our Credit Facility during the nine months ended September 30, 2016, as well as, our decision to pay down a majority of our capital lease obligations during the first half of 2017.

As of September 30, 2017, we maintained cash and cash equivalents of $0.8 million and $9.0 million of net availability under our revolving credit facility, compared to $3.4 million of cash and cash equivalents and $9.9 million of net availability, respectively, at December 31, 2016.
