Deltex Medical Group plc ("Deltex Medical" or the "Group")

Interim results to 30 June, 2020

Deltex Medical Group plc (AIM: DEMG), the global leader in oesophageal Doppler monitoring, today announces its unaudited interim results to 30 June 2020.

 

HIGHLIGHTS

COVID-19

§ Deltex Medical's TrueVue system is primarily used by clinicians to guide clinical practice during elective surgery; however, elective surgery in our key markets was effectively halted by the COVID-19 ("CV-19") pandemic earlier this year

§ in the UK, TrueVue Doppler is also used in intensive care units ("ICUs") for very sick patients. Use of TrueVue Doppler increased at the height of the pandemic during March and April, but dropped back sharply as admission to ICUs for CV-19 patients reduced

§ there are preliminary signs that elective surgery is now beginning to increase as pressure to reduce waiting lists starts to grow, particularly overseas

Financial

§ revenues: £1.2 million (2019: £2.0 million)

§ 33% reduction in like-for-like revenues: £1.2 million (2019: £1.8 million)

§ 25% reduction in overhead costs to £1.3 million (2019: £1.7 million)

§ adjusted EBITDA: £(0.2) million (2019: £0.2 million)

§ loss for the period: £(0.6) million (2019: £(0.3) million)

§ cash at hand - 30 June 2020: £0.6 million (30 June 2019: £0.6 million)

Business

§ the reduction in revenues linked to the cessation of elective surgical procedures in our key markets has been partially offset by the treatment of CV-19 patients in ICUs

§ careful stewardship of cash resources, including use of Government furlough scheme and successful application to the US Government's Paycheck Protection Program

§ good progress being made on new product development, including securing further grant funding 

§ focus now on positioning the business for progress in 2021

 

Nigel Keen, Chairman of Deltex Medical, said:

"The first half was challenging, but our much lower cost base and careful stewardship of cash means that the business is well placed for future opportunities."

"Although it was pleasing to see the Group's TrueVue Doppler being used to treat a number of acutely sick COVID-19 NHS patients in March and April, the decline in elective surgery in our key markets adversely affected the business significantly."

"We are confident that as the number of elective surgical procedures starts to climb, in part due to increasing pressure to reduce waiting lists, so the financial performance of the Group will improve."

Notes for Editors

Deltex Medical manufactures and markets haemodynamic monitoring technologies which are primarily used in critical care and general surgical procedures. Deltex Medical's proprietary oesophageal Doppler monitoring ("ODM") (TrueVue Doppler) measures blood flow velocity in the central circulation in real time. Minimally invasive, easy to set-up and quick to focus, the technology generates a low-frequency ultrasound signal which is highly sensitive to changes in blood flow and measures such changes in 'real time'. Deltex Medical is the only company in the enhanced haemodynamic space to have built a robust and credible evidence base demonstrating both the clinical and economic benefits of its core technology: TrueVue Doppler. This technology has been proven in a wide range of clinical trials to reduce complications suffered by patients after surgery and consequently can save hospitals money.

Deltex Medical's TrueVue System on the CardioQ-ODM+ monitor platform now provides clinicians with two further advanced haemodynamic monitoring technologies. TrueVue Impedance is an entirely non-invasive monitoring technology which transmits low magnitude, high frequency electrical signals through the thorax and measures the changes to this signal when the heart pumps blood. TrueVue PressureWave uses the peripheral blood pressure signal analysis to give doctors information on changes in the circulation and is particularly suited to monitoring lower risk or haemodynamically stable patients.

Group goal

Haemodynamic management is now becoming widely accepted as a vital part of the anaesthesia protocols for surgical patients, as well as treating ventilated intensive care patients, including ventilated COVID-19 patients. Consequently, the Group's focus is on maximising value from the opportunities presented, as enhanced haemodynamic management is adopted into routine clinical practice around the world. The Group aims to provide clinicians with a single platform - a 'haemodynamic workstation' - which offers them a range of technologies from simple to sophisticated to be deployed according to the patient's clinical condition as well as the skill and expertise of the user. Doing this will enable the Group to partner with healthcare providers to support modern haemodynamic management across the whole hospital.

The Group is currently in the implementation phase of achieving this goal in a number of territories worldwide, operating directly in the UK and the USA, and via agreements with approximately 40 distributors overseas

 

 

 

Chairman's statement

Financial results

The adverse impact of COVID-19 ("CV-19") on the business is reflected in the results of the first half.

The Group saw significantly increased sales into UK intensive care units ("ICUs") in March and April, as intensivists started to use Deltex Medical's equipment to improve the treatment of CV-19 patients, particularly to help avoid acute kidney injuries. In 2019 we negotiated the termination of a third-party distribution agreement, which included revenues of £0.2 million in the first half of 2019, accordingly the like-for-like H1 2019 revenues were £1.8 million, meaning that the H1 2020 revenues of £1.2 million declined by 33% on a like-for-like basis. On a statutory basis the loss of revenues from elective surgical procedures in the first half resulted in total Group revenues declining by 42% to £1.2 million (2019: £2.0 million).

When the scale of the impact of the CV-19 pandemic became clear, especially the adverse impact globally on elective surgery volumes, management took rapid and robust action. This included aggressively cutting discretionary expenditure from March and furloughing the majority of the Group's UK employees from May. These proactive steps resulted in a 25% reduction in costs in the first half to £1.3 million (2019: £1.7 million).

Adjusted EBITDA for the period was a loss of £0.2 million (2019: positive £0.2 million).

During the period the Group was awarded an Innovation Continuity Grant by Innovate UK worth approximately £0.2 million to help the funding of its new product development programme which last year received an Innovate UK Smart award. The cash associated with this grant was received in July 2020. Deltex Medical continues to work closely with Innovate UK to explore additional funding sources for its new product development programme.

The Group also successfully applied for a cash grant of US$0.2 million under the US Government's Paycheck Protection Program, which was received in July 2020.

There continues to be careful stewardship of the Group's cash resources with cash at hand at 30 June, 2020 of £0.6 million (2019: £0.6 million).

Commercial activities

Deltex Medical's TrueVue Doppler haemodynamic monitoring technology was originally developed for use in ICUs where it provides extremely accurate data to help guide therapy for very sick patients whose haemodynamic status is changing rapidly.  More recently, other technologies have entered the market to provide more indicative data on the haemodynamic status of ICU patients who are relatively stable.

For patients in the Operating theatre ("OR"), whose haemodynamic status is intrinsically unstable, the Group's TrueVue Doppler technology has become the standard of care supported by a significant number of positive clinical trial results published in scientific journals.  Since the use of TrueVue Doppler in the OR is a higher margin business than its use in the ICU, and the OR also typically represents a larger addressable market, Deltex Medical has focussed its sales and marketing activities on promoting the use of its TrueVue Doppler technology in the OR setting.

When the CV-19 pandemic struck, clinicians saw that patients admitted into ICU were often critically haemodynamically unstable. This prompted intensivists who were familiar with the benefits of Deltex Medical's technology to start to use the TrueVue Doppler system to treat this cohort of very sick ICU patients. Accordingly, in March and April we saw usage rates significantly increase in UK ICUs.

In parallel, we saw elective surgery being stopped by healthcare systems in our key markets as hospitals focused on treating the large numbers of extremely sick CV-19 patients being admitted into ICUs. This decline in elective surgical procedures resulted in a very significant reduction in orders for TrueVue Doppler probes from the Group's established customer base.

Since May, as lockdown brought the pandemic under control, the number of CV-19 patients in UK and US ICUs has reduced substantially, with many ICUs being nearly completely empty.  Elective surgical procedures are, however, only just beginning to restart and often initially at a much lower level, as hospitals reshape their services to be able to withstand the possibility of a second wave of CV-19 patients whilst at the same time putting in place measures which will allow an increase in normal clinical interventions.

Deltex Medical has seen increased activity levels from our key markets since August. For example:

§ in the United States, our direct sales team is beginning to see the number of elective surgical procedures in US hospitals increasing. It is too early to be able to assess how quickly it will take our US hospital customers to get back to full capacity, although we believe that the USA is currently moving faster than the UK, notwithstanding the continuing relatively high CV-19 transmission rates;

§ in the UK, there are signs that elective surgery is beginning to restart following the end of the summer holiday period. There is also significant pressure from both patients and clinicians to reduce the substantial waiting lists which developed during lockdown for both NHS and private patients. There is a clear recognition that it is better clinically, and less expensive, to treat patients via elective surgical procedures as opposed to waiting for patients' underlying health issues to deteriorate and require emergency interventions. We have seen a UK hospital place an order for 10 new TrueVue Monitors for its ORs following intense use of the TrueVue Doppler technology in its ICUs during the peak of the CV-19 pandemic. It is currently too early to estimate how quickly elective procedures will return to normal, pre-pandemic levels in NHS and private hospitals in the UK; and

§ through our international network of distributors, we are seeing signs of orders returning to more normal levels of demand. For example, in France, Deltex Medical's distributor ordered probes in August for the first time this year and we have also seen orders from Korea as well as some smaller European customers.

New product development

Deltex Medical's new product development programme, including the development of the new Monitor, has continued despite the disruption caused by engineers working from home. Good progress has been made, including securing further grant funding for elements of this development work.

Brexit

The Group has a number of contingency plans already in place which can be quickly implemented to respond to the different possible outcomes associated with Brexit and the EU-UK Withdrawal Agreement negotiations.

Current trading and prospects

Deltex Medical's core haemodynamic monitoring business remains focused on elective surgery. As elective surgery numbers increase worldwide, so the Group's financial performance will improve. In the meantime, we believe that the Group will continue to trade at a reduced level of activity in comparison to pre-CV-19 levels, but that this level of activity is sustainable and is expected to be broadly cash neutral.

Although the second half is expected to be an improvement on the first half of 2020, the ongoing elective surgery delays will result in revenues being materially behind market expectations. The Group does have some significant live tenders with potential international buyers. However, the Board has taken a prudent approach with guidance due to the limited visibility on these large potential orders. We expect revenue levels in 2021 to recover to previous levels seen in 2019.

On the back of the CV-19 ICU experience, the Group is now working with key opinion leaders in the UK and the United States to develop data to show how the protocolized use of TrueVue Doppler on severely sick CV-19 patients can significantly improve patient outcomes.

Since the beginning of September, a number of Deltex Medical employees have been taken off furlough to return to work on a part-time basis in order to help the Group satisfy increasing demand for its TrueVue Doppler probes.

Deltex Medical's focus for the rest of this year will be to ensure that the business is optimally positioned for 2021, including maximising cash generation and, assisted by the Innovate Smart award, continuing with its programme of new product development.

These condensed consolidated interim financial statements (Interim Financial Statements) as at and for the period ended 30 June 2020 comprise the Company and its subsidiaries (together referred to as 'the Group'). The Group is principally involved with the manufacture and sale of advanced haemodynamic monitoring technologies.

 

2.   Basis of accounting

These interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with IAS 34, 'Interim Financial Reporting', and should be read in conjunction with the Group's last annual consolidated financial statements as at and for the year ended 31 December 2019 (Annual Report & Accounts 2019). They do not include all the information required for a complete set of IFRS financial statements. However, selected explanatory notes are included to explain events and transactions that are significant to an understanding of the changes in the Group's financial position.

 

These condensed consolidated interim financial statements do not constitute statutory accounts within the meaning of Section 434 of the Companies Act 2006. The summary of results for the year ended 31 December 2019 is an extract from the published consolidated financial statements of the Group for that year which have been reported on by the Group's auditors and delivered to the Registrar of Companies. The Independent Auditors' Report on the Annual Report & Accounts for 2019 was unqualified, did not draw attention to any matters by way of emphasis, and did not contain a statement under 498(2) or 498(3) of the Companies Act 2006.

 

These condensed consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared applying the accounting policies and presentation that were applied in the preparation of the Group's published consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2019 and are expected to be applied in the preparation of the financial statements for the year ending 31 December 2020. The Group has not early adopted any other standard, interpretation or amendment that has been issued but is not yet effective.
 

These condensed consolidated interim financial statements were approved by the Board of Directors and approved for issue on 21 September 2020.

 

3.   Use of judgements and estimates

In preparing these interim financial statements, management has made judgements and estimates that affect the application of accounting policies and the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, income and expense. Although these estimates are based on the directors' best knowledge of the amount, event or actions, it should be noted that actual results may differ from those estimates.

 

The significant judgements and estimates made by the directors in applying the Group's accounting policies and key sources of estimation uncertainty were the same as those disclosed in Annual Report & Accounts 2019.

 

4.   Revenue
The Group's revenue disaggregated by primary geographical markets is as follows:

5.   Segment results

Performance is monitored, and the allocation of resources is made, on the basis of results derived from the sale of probes, monitors and third-party products for which revenues and gross margins are regularly reported to the Group's Chief Executive Officer who has been identified as the Chief Operating Decision Maker (CODM). The CODM also monitors a profit measure described internally as 'adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (Adjusted EBITDA). However, this measure is reported at a Group level rather than an operating segment which is based on the nature of the goods provided rather than the geographical market in which they are sold.

The other gain amount for six months to 30 June 2020 of £19,000 (six months to 30 June 2019: £nil) comprises tax income arising from the Research and Development Expenditure Credit scheme which is accounted for as a government grant. 

 

8.   Loss per share
Basic loss per share is calculated by dividing the earnings attributable to ordinary shareholders by the weighted average number of ordinary shares issued during the year.

The loss per share calculation for six months to 30 June 2020 is based on the loss after tax attributable to owners of the parent of £584,000 and the weighted average number of shares in issue of 524,868,826.

The loss per share calculation for six months to 30 June 2019 is based on the loss after tax attributable to owners of the parent of £270,000 and the weighted average number of shares in issue of 502,437,787.

The loss per share calculation for the year ended 31 December 2019 is based on the loss after tax attributable to owners of the parent of £161,000 and the weighted average number of shares in issue of 509,679,881. While the Company is loss-making, the diluted loss per share and the loss per share are the same.
