Bacterin International Holdings, Inc. (NYSE MKT: BONE), a leader in the development of revolutionary bone graft material and coatings for medical applications, today reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2012. The Company reported 2012 revenues of $33.0 million, an increase of 9% from reported 2011 revenues of $30.1 million. In addition, the Company reported a net loss for 2012 of approximately $7.7 million, or ($0.18) per common share, compared to a net loss of approximately $3.0 million, or ($0.08) per common share, reported during the same period in 2011.
Revenue for the year was a record $33.0 million, up 9% compared to approximately $30.1 million for 2011. The increase during the period was primarily attributed to the higher sales from the Company’s sales force combined with improved penetration into its existing accounts.
Revenue softened during the fourth quarter to $8.1 million, compared to $9.1 million reported for the fourth quarter of 2011. The lower results reflect not closing anticipated, larger sales to corporate entities as well as increased pricing pressure. Excluding a $1.4 million corporate stocking order sale in the fourth quarter of 2011, revenue increased 5% for the fourth quarter of 2012.
“Despite competitive challenges in the marketplace during the fourth quarter, we were able to deliver an improved topline for the year,” said Guy Cook, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President of Bacterin International. “Our sales approach and model has adapted to this evolving sales environment and we have made solid progress in mitigating the factors that impeded our sales growth during the fourth quarter.”
Mr. Cook continued, “We will continue to develop our core-business, while focusing on channel development to enhance our distribution capabilities domestically and internationally, and we believe these efforts are now beginning to gain traction.”
