Acquisition Related Updates:

  • Since April 19, 2022, the Company has closed four acquisitions adding locations across nine U.S. states including Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, California, and Louisiana. Louisiana represented the 19th state of service, and the total geographical area represented over 5.5 million COPD patients, a key target group.

Subsequent Events to the Three Months Ended June 30, 2022:

  • On July 26, 2022, the Company executed a supply contract with Cardinal Health at-Home, a business unit of Cardinal Health, Inc., wherein Quipt has agreed to offer to sell, and Cardinal has agreed to supply and distribute, disposable medical supplies nationwide. The contract is extremely meaningful for Quipt as it provides us the ability to produce meaningful cross selling opportunities, including additional product lines to go after in the future. Additionally, any new acquisitions, will benefit from being able to immediately leverage the contract at new locations across the country, providing further synergies with the expectation this contract will give us stronger buying power for disposable medical supplies.
  • On August 9, 2022, the Company exercised its right under the debenture indenture dated March 7, 2019, which governs all of the Company’s 8.0% unsecured convertible debentures issued on March 7, 2019, to convert all of the principal amount outstanding of the remaining debentures into common shares of the Company.
  • On August 15, 2022, the Company received a commitment letter from CIT Bank, a division of First-Citizens Bank & Trust Company, wherein CIT would commit to provide 100% of the senior secured credit facilities in the aggregate amount of up to $80,000,000 (to be comprised of a term loan facility of $5,000,000, a delayed draw term loan facility of $55,000,000 and a revolving credit facility of $20,000,000). The senior credit facilities will be evidenced by an Amended and Restated Credit and Guaranty Agreement, which will amend and restate the Credit Agreement dated September 18, 2020 (announced by the Company on September 21, 2020).

Management Commentary:

“The robust financial and operating results in the fiscal third quarter are reflective of the continued operational excellence displayed throughout each facet of the organization. Our team of hands-on operators have been able to effectively integrate acquired assets, drive organic growth, and maintain strength in our margins during a well above normal inflationary period. We are very encouraged by the substantial improvement on the labor side as it relates to hiring additional talented team members as we have moved through the year, and we have also seen continued progress on the supply chain in real time. Moreover, we saw accelerating momentum across our respiratory product mix as the quarter progressed, which has continued into fiscal Q4.,” said CEO and Chairman Greg Crawford.

“There have been several exciting developments over the course of 2022 as we continue building our scalable healthcare platform and expand our continuum of care across the country. During fiscal Q3, we executed a national contract with the largest healthcare insurance provider in the United States which was a major milestone, allowing for substantially expanded patient accessibility and we are continuing to work with other major insurance providers on new national contracts. Additionally, we recently executed a supply contract with Cardinal Health for medical supplies nationwide. This contract will provide us additional buying power, and open new synergistic product verticals in the future. These major contracts are examples of the ongoing success we are having scaling our business into a national clinical respiratory care company in the United States. On the acquisition front, our pipeline remains deep with strategic opportunities across all three tiers of our strategy, and we look forward to a very active remainder of the year. The bullish regulatory environment, momentum in our core business, and strong balance sheet leave us extremely well positioned to seize the growth opportunity ahead of us.”

Chief Financial Officer Hardik Mehta added, “Our record fiscal third quarter results demonstrate our ability to successfully operate the business through a challenging operating environment. We are extremely enthused with our margin stability which we fully expect to continue moving through fiscal Q4 and beyond. We saw record revenue of $36.7 million, experienced 2% organic growth over fiscal Q2 2022, had strong operating cash flow and maintained a very healthy balance sheet. As of July, we had reached approximately $160 million in run-rate revenue and are well on our way to meeting our outlook. Last week, we announced a commitment letter for up to $80 million of senior credit facilities from CIT, which will give us substantially more financial flexibility to continue executing on our growth strategy led by our strategic three-tiered approach to acquisitions. As it relates to acquisitions made in 2022, we are encouraged by the ongoing integration process of and are well positioned to continue our aggressive growth strategy led by strategic acquisitions in favorable geographies. We are also continuing to drive meaningful cost and revenue synergies, following our stringent acquisition criteria and robust integration process. Furthermore, we see potential expansionary opportunities into synergistic verticals of service that would enhance our end-to-end product and service offering and look forward to updating investors on all our progress.”
