Exhibit 99.1




Aziyo Biologics Announces Record Annual Net Sales in Preliminary (Unaudited) Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2022 Topline Results


SILVER SPRING, Md., January 9, 2023 — Aziyo Biologics, Inc. (Nasdaq: AZYO) (“Aziyo”), a biologics company with a portfolio of regenerative products aimed at improving compatibility between medical devices and the patients they treat, today announced preliminary (unaudited) net sales results for its fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2022.


Preliminary Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2022 Net Sales Results


·Anticipate fourth quarter 2022 net sales of approximately $12.5-$12.7 million, an increase of 15%-17% compared to the same prior year period 


·Anticipate full year 2022 record net sales of approximately $49.0-$49.2 million, an increase of 3%-4% compared to the prior year and, after excluding 2021 sales of a discontinued product of $4.9 million, an increase of approximately 15%-16%


·Continued strong performance from SimpliDerm and CanGaroo® product lines, with expected combined net sales growth in fourth quarter 2022 of approximately 30% compared to fourth quarter 2021


“I want to thank the Aziyo team for an exceptional performance throughout the year, closing out 2022 with record annual revenue and growing our SimpliDerm and CanGaroo product lines an anticipated 30% for the fourth quarter,” said Dr. Randy Mills, Chief Executive Officer. “In 2023, we look forward to the commercial introduction of our new drug eluting technology, subject to the anticipated FDA clearance of CanGaroo RM. With $15.2 million in gross proceeds from recent financings, we believe we are solidly positioned to deliver on our mission of humanizing medical devices for better patient outcomes.”


The foregoing results for the three months and the year ended December 31, 2022, are preliminary and unaudited and do not present all information necessary for an understanding of the Company’s results of operations for these periods. The Company’s actual results may differ from the preliminary estimates above due to the completion of the Company’s year-end accounting procedures, including execution of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting, and audit of the Company’s financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2022, by the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, which are ongoing. Aziyo expects to report its full fourth quarter and fiscal year 2022 results in early March 2023.
