Edwards Lifesciences Reports Fourth Quarter Results

IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 27, 2021 -- Edwards Lifesciences (NYSE: EW) today reported financial results for the quarter ended December 31, 2020. 

Fourth Quarter Highlights and Outlook

  • Q4 sales increased 1 percent to $1.2 billion; underlying1 sales flat
  • Q4 TAVR sales grew 2 percent; underlying sales flat
  • Q4 EPS was $0.49; adjusted1 EPS grew 2 percent to $0.50
  • December investor conference highlighted 2021 and long-term outlook
  • 2021 guidance reiterated with sales growth expected in the mid-teens

"Despite unprecedented challenges in 2020, I'm proud of our team's steadfast dedication to  patients and advancing Edwards' long-term strategy.  We continued to invest in developing solutions that extend lives, improve quality of life, and offer greater value to the healthcare system," said Michael A. Mussallem, chairman and CEO.  "As we look to 2021 and beyond, I am as excited as ever about the work happening at Edwards and, more importantly, what we envision for the future of patient care."

2020 Full Year Results

Sales for the year ended December 31, 2020, were $4.4 billion, up 1 percent over the prior year, on both a reported and underlying basis.  Diluted earnings per share for 2020 were $1.30, while adjusted earnings per share of $1.86 were unchanged from the year-ago period.

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)

The company reported fourth quarter global TAVR sales of $776 million, a year-over-year  increase of 2 percent on a reported basis and flat on an underlying basis.  COVID had a more pronounced impact on the company's U.S. sales, which declined mid-single digits, while OUS sales increased in the high-single digit range on an underlying, year-over-year basis. Global average selling prices remained stable. 

Looking ahead to 2021, the company continues to anticipate underlying sales growth in the 15 to 20 percent range, with significant COVID-related challenges early in 2021 turning to a more normalized growth environment in the second half of the year.  Edwards remains confident that this large global opportunity will exceed $7 billion by 2024, which implies a compounded annual growth rate in the low-double digit range.

Transcatheter Mitral and Tricuspid Therapies (TMTT)

TMTT continues to make meaningful progress moving from early-stage development to clinical use across all of Edwards' platforms, with over 3,000 patients treated to date.  To transform treatment and unlock this significant longer-term growth opportunity, TMTT remains focused on three key value drivers: a portfolio of differentiated therapies, positive pivotal trial results to support approvals and adoption, and favorable real-world clinical outcomes.

Despite COVID headwinds, fourth quarter global sales were $13 million, representing sequential improvement versus the third quarter.

Edwards continues to estimate the global TMTT opportunity to reach $3 billion by 2025 and remains committed to transforming the treatment of patients with mitral and tricuspid valve disease around the world.

Surgical Structural Heart and Critical Care

Surgical Structural Heart sales for the quarter were $204 million, down one percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2019, and down two percent on an underlying basis.  As hospitals experienced an influx of COVID patients, surgical valve procedures were limited.  This was partially offset by continued strong adoption of the company's premium technologies.

Critical Care sales were $198 million for the quarter, representing a decline of one percent versus the fourth quarter of 2019, or two percent on an underlying basis, driven by the decline in HemoSphere orders in the U.S. as hospitals limited their capital spending. Sales of TruWave disposable pressure monitoring devices used in the ICU were lifted by the increased COVID hospitalizations late in the fourth quarter in both the U.S. and Europe.

Additional Financial Results

For the quarter, the company's adjusted gross margin was 75.3 percent, compared to 75.8 percent in the same period last year.  This reduction was driven by a negative impact from FX and incremental costs associated with responding to COVID, partially offset by lower performance-based compensation.

Selling, general and administrative expenses in the fourth quarter were $339 million, or 28.4 percent of sales, compared to $347 million in the prior year.  This decrease was primarily driven by reduced spending resulting from COVID and lower performance-based compensation, partially offset by the impact from FX.

Research and development expenses in the fourth quarter were $196 million, or 16.4 percent of sales, compared to $194 million in the prior year.  This small increase was primarily the result of higher investments in transcatheter mitral valve replacement and costs associated with discontinuing the SUTRAFIX program, partially offset by reduced performance-based compensation.

Free cash flow for the fourth quarter was $287 million, defined as cash flow from operating activities of $400 million, less capital spending of $113 million.

Cash and investments totaled $2.2 billion at December 31, 2020.  Total debt was $595 million.

Outlook

Overall, full year 2021 sales guidance for Edwards remains $4.9 to $5.3 billion.  Additionally, the company continues to expect full year 2021 adjusted earnings per share of $2.00 to $2.20.

For the first quarter of 2021, the company projects total sales to be between $1.1 and $1.2 billion, and adjusted EPS of $0.43 to $0.50.

"Even though we expect a COVID impact on sales in the start of the year, we are continuing to invest now in our innovations that have tremendous opportunity to enhance patients' lives and bring significant value to the healthcare system," said Mussallem.  "We recognize the uncertain impact and timeframe for recovery from this unique global challenge but remain confident that our patient-focused strategy of continued investment positions us to be even stronger when the world emerges from the pandemic."

EDWARDS LIFESCIENCES CORPORATION
Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement the consolidated financial results prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), the Company uses non-GAAP historical financial measures.  Management makes adjustments to the GAAP measures for items (both charges and gains) that (a) do not reflect the core operational activities of the Company, (b) are commonly adjusted within the Company's industry to enhance comparability of the Company's financial results with those of its peer group, or (c) are inconsistent in amount or frequency between periods (albeit such items are monitored and controlled with equal diligence relative to core operations).  The Company uses the term "adjusted sales" or "underlying growth rate" when referring to non-GAAP sales information, which excludes foreign exchange rate fluctuations and includes the prior year sales results of a business acquired as if the acquisition had occurred at the beginning of the earliest period presented. The Company uses the term "adjusted" to also exclude intellectual property litigation expenses, amortization of intangible assets, fair value adjustments to contingent consideration liabilities arising from acquisitions, significant charges associated with transcatheter aortic valve replacement ("TAVR") inventory write offs, impairment of long-lived assets, and the purchase of intellectual property. 

Management uses non-GAAP financial measures internally for strategic decision making, forecasting future results, and evaluating current performance.  These non-GAAP financial measures are used in addition to, and in conjunction with, results presented in accordance with GAAP and reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of the Company's operations by investors that, when viewed with its GAAP results, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting the Company's business and facilitate comparability to historical periods. 

Non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP; therefore, the information is not necessarily comparable to other companies and should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.  A reconciliation of non-GAAP historical financial measures to the most comparable GAAP measure is provided in the tables below.

Fluctuations in exchange rates impact the comparative results and sales growth rates of the Company's underlying business. Management believes that excluding the impact of foreign exchange rate fluctuations from its sales growth provides investors a more useful comparison to historical financial results. The impact of foreign exchange rate fluctuations has been detailed in the "Reconciliation of Sales by Product Group and Region." 

Guidance for sales and sales growth rates is provided on an "underlying basis," and projections for diluted earnings per share, net income and growth, gross profit margin, taxes, and free cash flow are also provided on a non-GAAP basis as adjusted for the items identified above due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting such items without unreasonable efforts.  The Company is not able to provide a reconciliation of the non-GAAP guidance to comparable GAAP measures due to the unknown effect, timing, and potential significance of special charges or gains, and management's inability to forecast charges associated with future transactions and initiatives.

Management considers free cash flow to be a liquidity measure which provides useful information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated by business operations, after deducting payments for capital expenditures, which can then be used for strategic opportunities or other business purposes including, among others, investing in the Company's business, making strategic acquisitions, strengthening the balance sheet, and repurchasing stock.

The items described below are adjustments to the GAAP financial results in the reconciliations that follow:

Litigation Settlement - In the second quarter of 2020, the Company recorded a $367.9 million charge to settle certain patent litigation related to transcatheter mitral and tricuspid repair products.

Intellectual Property Litigation Expenses - The Company incurred intellectual property litigation expenses of $12.5 million and $4.6 million in the first quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively, $12.0 million and  $7.0 million in the second quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively, $8.4 million and $7.9 million in the third quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively, and $4.6 million and $13.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively.

Change in Fair Value of Contingent Consideration Liabilities, net - The Company recorded income of $2.2 million and expense of $6.7 million in the first quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively, expenses of $19.6 million and $8.0 million in the second quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively, income of $9.0 million and $2.3 million in the third quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively, and expense of $5.2 million and income of  $18.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively, related to changes in the fair value of its contingent consideration liabilities arising from acquisitions.

Amortization of Intangible Assets - The Company recorded amortization expense related to developed technology, patents and trademarks in the amount of $1.7 million and $0.5 million in the first quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively, $1.3 million and $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively, $1.0 million and $1.3 million in the third quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively, and $1.4 million and $1.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2020 and 2019, respectively.

TAVR Inventory Write Off - The Company recorded a $46.2 million charge in the second quarter of 2019 and a $26.9 million charge in the third quarter of 2019, primarily comprised of the write off of inventory in response to strategic decisions regarding its TAVR portfolio.

Impairment of Long-lived Assets - The Company recorded a $40.6 million charge in the fourth quarter of 2019 related to the other-than-temporary impairment of certain in-process research and development acquired as part of the acquisition of Valtech Cardio Ltd.

Purchase of Intellectual Property - The Company recorded a $24.0 million charge in the first quarter of 2019 related to the acquisition of early-stage transcatheter intellectual property and associated clinical and regulatory experience.

Provision for Income Taxes - The income tax impact of the expenses and gains discussed above is based upon the items' forecasted effect upon the Company's full year effective tax rate.  Adjustments to forecasted items unrelated to these expenses and gains, as well as impacts related to interim reporting, will have an effect on the income tax impact of these items in subsequent periods.
