Company to Hold Investment Community Conference Call Today at 2:00 p.m. Eastern
SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BSD Medical Corporation (NASDAQ: BSDM) (Company or BSD) (www.BSDMedical.com), a leading provider of medical systems that treat cancer and benign diseases using heat therapy, today reported financial results for the three and nine months ended May 31, 2014.
“While growing revenues we have kept tight control over operating expenses and reduced our year-to-date net loss by more than $1 million. With our costs in check and recently strengthened cash position, we are well positioned for continued growth”
Third Quarter of Fiscal 2014 Highlights (all comparisons with the third quarter of fiscal 2013)
- Total revenues of $1.3 million decreased 5% as a result of large, initial orders from Terumo Europe NV (Terumo) in the prior year
- Operating expenses declined 3% to $2.5 million
- Net loss remained relatively unchanged at $2.0 million
Year to Date Fiscal 2014 Highlights (all comparisons with the first nine months of fiscal 2013)
- Total revenues increased 53% to $4.3 million
- Gross margin improved to 46% from 42%
- Operating expenses declined 4% to $6.9 million
- Net loss improved to $5.0 million from a net loss of $6.0 million
- Current total sales backlog stands at approximately $917,500
BSD reported cash and equivalents of $5.2 million and no long-term debt at May 31, 2014. Subsequently, the Company raised approximately $5.2 million in gross proceeds in a registered direct offering, which was completed July 1, 2014, strengthening the balance sheet.
“Our healthy growth in revenues for the first nine months of this year has been driven by the strategic roll-out of our microwave ablation MicroThermX® system by Terumo and increasing sales of our SynchroWave disposable antennas. Revenues were slightly lower in the third quarter due to the large number of MTX systems shipped in the same quarter last year following the signing of our distribution agreement with Terumo; however, we continue to see robust interest and adoption from our partnership, as evidenced by the 50% growth in total antennae sales through the first nine months of the year,” said Harold Wolcott, President of BSD Medical. “In addition, year-to-date we’ve sold a total of six hyperthermia systems, including three to our distributor in Taiwan with the anticipated sale of a fourth system to that distributor in the current quarter.
“While growing revenues we have kept tight control over operating expenses and reduced our year-to-date net loss by more than $1 million. With our costs in check and recently strengthened cash position, we are well positioned for continued growth,” added Mr. Wolcott. “Terumo is an excellent distribution partner for the MTX product line, with exclusive license to sell in more than 100 countries in the greater Europe area, and we are seeing growing interest in that part of the world. There is an emerging body of evidence and acceptance of the use of microwave ablation technology in the treatment of cancer, both domestically and abroad, which bodes well for BSD’s future.”
Third Quarter and Year to Date Fiscal 2014 Operating Summary
BSD reported total revenues of $1,253,189 for the third quarter of fiscal 2014, a decrease of 5% from $1,316,713 for the third quarter of fiscal year 2013. This decline was due primarily to the large number of MTX systems shipped in the prior year three month period following the signing of our MTX distribution partner in Europe, and was largely offset by the sale of two hyperthermia systems compared with one in the prior year period. The Company has a current sales backlog of $917,500.
Gross margin was $505,270, or 40% of total revenues, for the third quarter of fiscal 2014, compared with $600,302, or 46% of total revenues, for the same period last year. Lower gross margin as a percent of revenues resulted from the effect of the sale of one hyperthermia system with a lower than normal gross margin.
Operating expenses declined 3% to $2.5 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 from $2.6 million for the comparable period last year. Research and development expenses declined 8% to $559,568 for the third quarter of fiscal 2014, from $607,960 for the third quarter of fiscal 2013. Selling, general and administrative expenses declined 2% to $1.9 million from $2.0 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2013.
The Company reported a net loss of $2.0 million, or $0.06 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2014, essentially flat with the third quarter of fiscal 2013.
Total revenues for the first nine months of fiscal 2014 increased 53% to $4.3 million, from $2.8 million for the first nine months of 2013. Gross margin was $2.0 million, or 46% of total revenues, for the nine months ended May 31, 2014, compared with $1.2 million, or 42% of total revenues, for the nine months ended May 31, 2013. Operating expenses decreased 4% to $6.9 million from $7.3 million in the prior year period. Net loss for the first nine months of fiscal 2014 declined to under $5.0 million dollars, or $0.15 per share, for the nine months of fiscal 2014, from a net loss of over $6.0 million, or $0.20 per share, for the nine months of fiscal 2013.
