“Year-to-date revenue through September 30 was the highest in the company’s history, and a 23% over the same period last year,” said Andy Astor, Chief Executive Officer of Nephros. “We are pleased with these results, especially given the prevalence of the COVID-19 Delta variant during the quarter, which may have suppressed our sales. We are optimistic that revenue growth rates will continue to increase, as the pandemic subsides and our markets fully reopen.”

Mr. Astor continued, “Our Pathogen Detection Systems (PDS) business segment generated small but promising new revenue. We believe this relatively young business will see significant growth in 2022. Regarding our second-generation HDF system, the FDA completed its Acceptance Review for the product, and has now entered its Substantive Review phase, which we anticipate will be completed around the end of this year.”

Adjusted EBITDA Definition and Reconciliation to GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by taking net (loss) income calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and excluding all interest-related expenses and income, tax-related expenses and income, non-recurring expenses and income, and non-cash items, including depreciation and amortization and non-cash compensation. The following table presents a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net (loss) income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, for the third quarter of the 2021 and 2020 fiscal years for both Nephros (on a consolidated basis) and the Water Filtration Business Segment:

  3 Months Ended Sep 30,
Water Filtration Business Segment 2021 2020
     
Net loss (755) (394)
     
Adjustments:    
Depreciation of property and equipment 7 7
Amortization of other assets 46 46
Interest expense 10 22
Interest income (2) (3)
Change in fair value of contingent consideration (187)
Stock based compensation 257 160
Other noncash items 90 2
Adjusted EBITDA (347) (347)
  3 Months Ended Sep 30,
Consolidated Results 2021 2020
     
Net loss (1,162) (1,012)
     
Adjustments:    
Depreciation of property and equipment 7 7
Amortization of other assets 46 46
Interest expense 10 22
Interest income (2) (3)
Change in fair value of contingent consideration (187)
Noncash compensation 267 172
Other noncash items 90 2
Adjusted EBITDA (744) (953)

Nephros believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to Nephros’s financial condition and results of operations. Management does not consider Adjusted EBITDA in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of Adjusted EBITDA is that it excludes significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recognized in Nephros’s consolidated financial statements. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA is subject to inherent limitations as it reflects the exercise of judgments by management about which expenses and income are excluded or included in determining Adjusted EBITDA. In order to compensate for these limitations, management presents Adjusted EBITDA in connection with net (loss) income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Nephros urges investors to review the reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net (loss) income and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the business.
