“We’ve initiated a Company wide cost reduction program to align our expense levels with our revenue expectations for 2013. This will reduce our current spending by approximately $1.7 million per year as well as an additional $1.3 million of previously planned expenditures which will not be made,” said John Gandolfo, Chief Financial Officer.
EBITDA for 2012 improved to a loss of $2.6 million, compared to a loss of $3.0 million in 2011.
Mr. Gandolfo further commented, “If we are successful in achieving the previously given 2013 revenue guidance of $38 to $40 million, as well as the expense reductions referred to above, we believe we would generate positive operating income as well as positive EBITDA for the year.”
Cash and cash equivalents and net accounts receivable, was $12.1 million at December 31, 2012, compared to $7.8 million at December 31, 2011.
On August 24, 2012, the Company entered into a Credit Agreement with an entity managed by OrbiMed, whereby OrbiMed agreed to provide an initial $20 million term loan and Bacterin may also borrow an additional approximately $5 million upon achievement of certain revenue objectives prior to December 31, 2013. Approximately half of the proceeds of this credit facility were used to repay existing debt and expenses related to the transaction.

About the Presentation of EBITDA
EBITDA is not a financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income or any other financial measures so calculated and presented, nor as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. The company defines EBITDA as net income/(loss) from operations before depreciation, amortization and non-cash stock-based compensation. Other companies (including competitors) may define EBITDA differently. The company presents EBITDA because management believes it to be an important supplemental measure of performance that is commonly used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industry. Management also uses this information internally for forecasting and budgeting. It may not be indicative of the historical operating results of Bacterin nor is it intended to be predictive of potential future results. Investors should not consider EBITDA in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the company's results as reported under GAAP. See "GAAP to non-GAAP Reconciliation" below for further information on this non-GAAP measure.
