Electromed, Inc. Reports 2012 Second Quarter Results

NEW PRAGUE, Minn.--()--Electromed, Inc. (NYSE Amex: ELMD) today announced financial results for the three-month period ended December 31, 2011. Net Revenues for the three months ended December 31, 2011, were approximately $4,790,000, a 2.2% increase compared to Net Revenues of approximately $4,686,000 for the same period last year. The Company also announced Net Income of approximately $25,000, or $0.00 per basic and diluted share, for the three months ended December 31, 2011, compared to Net Income of approximately $292,000, or $0.03 per basic and diluted share, for the same period last year. The reduction in Net Income results was attributable to missed sales goals reflecting underperformance by a number of former Clinical Area Managers. This resulted from termination-driven turnover of approximately 16% of the sales force. Management continues to believe that planned increases in the Company’s sales force, reimbursement and production personnel, coupled with the expansion of marketing and research and development efforts, will provide strong impetus for continued solid annual sales growth.

Robert Hansen, Chairman and CEO, commented on the Company, saying,

“When some employees fail to achieve planned goals, the performance of all the employees is compromised. In Sales, this fact is especially relevant. When momentum falters, the solution is to make summary changes and to replace weakness with strength. The Regional Sales Managers of Electromed, Inc. and I have acted swiftly to recruit new, highly-trained, and experienced sales staff to succeed the sales staff who failed to keep pace with the growth needs of the Second Quarter. New and exciting successors have replaced underperformers. I remain confident that the balance of Fiscal Year 2012, and the First Half of FY2013, beginning July 1, 2012, will reflect strong sales growth accompanied by continued profitability.”

Gross Profit decreased to approximately $3,480,000, or 72.6% of Net Revenues, for the three months ended December 31, 2011, compared to $3,540,000, or 75.6% for the same period in Fiscal 2011. The decrease in gross profit percentage was primarily the result of a change in average reimbursement from the mix of referrals during the three month period. Factors such as diagnoses that are not assured of reimbursement and insurance programs with lower allowable reimbursement amounts (for example, state Medicaid programs) affect average reimbursement received on a short-term basis. These factors tend to fluctuate on a quarterly basis. However, management does not believe the results of the quarter ended December 31, 2011, are indicative of a long-term trend in decreasing margins.

Operating Expenses, which consist of Selling, General, and Administrative Expenses and Research and Development expenses, were approximately $3,380,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2011, an increase of approximately 12.6% over Operating Expenses for the same period last year. These planned increases resulted from higher payroll related to increasing the size of the sales team, increases in reimbursement, administration, patient services staff, and patient training costs related to the higher Sales volume, increased expenses relating to being a new public Company, and increased Research and Development expenses.

Total cash was approximately $1,745,000 as of December 31, 2011. For the three months ended December 31, 2011, cash used in financing activities was approximately $86,000, consisting primarily of $90,000 in payments of long-term debt, capital lease obligations, and deferred financing fees. An aggregate of $405,000 was used for investing activities during the three months ended December 31, 2011, for purchases of property and equipment. The Company used approximately $710,000 in operating activities composed primarily of an increase in the Company’s accounts receivables and inventory, which increased approximately $304,000 and $234,000, or 2.9% and 10.8%, respectively. Accounts payable and accrued liabilities decreased approximately $302,000, or 14.0%, during the three months ended December 31, 2011.
