Revenue of $2.9 million, for the fourth quarter and $12.6 million for fiscal year 2011.

New Vice President of Sales and Marketing joins Urologix.

 

MINNEAPOLIS — August 23, 2011 — Urologix®, Inc. (NASDAQ:ULGX), a medical device company focused on developing, manufacturing and marketing Cooled ThermoTherapy™ treatment catheters that provide a durable and effective procedure delivered in the comfort of a urologist’s office for patients suffering from benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), today reported financial results for its fourth fiscal quarter and fiscal year 2011 ended June 30, 2011.

 

Fourth quarter fiscal year 2011 revenue totaled $2.9 million, down 11% year-over-year and down 2% sequentially. The decline in revenue on a year-over-year basis was driven by reduced order volumes in all distribution channels: direct, mobile and third party mobile. The sequential decline in revenue was primarily due to lower revenue from our third-party mobile channel.

 

Fourth quarter fiscal year 2011 revenue was comprised of sales to direct accounts, Urologix mobile service and third-party mobile service, representing 40%, 46% and 12%, respectively, in the period. This compares to a revenue mix of 36%, 47% and 14%, respectively, in the Company’s third quarter of fiscal year 2011.

 

Gross profit for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2011 of $1.3 million, or 43% of revenue, declined 11 percentage points year-over-year driven by the allocation of fixed manufacturing costs over lower production volume in the period as well as an additional $158,000 out-of-period expense related to an adjustment to correct over-capitalized manufacturing variances that had accumulated during the previous three quarters. Total operating expense of $2.6 million increased 5% year-over-year driven primarily by higher investments in research and development compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2010.

 

For the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2011, Urologix reported a net loss of $1.3 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $622,000, or $0.04 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2010.

 

The Company’s cash utilization in the fourth fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2011 was $729,000 compared to cash utilization of $62,000 in the same period last year. As of June 30, 2011, the Company’s cash balance was $3.1 million with no debt obligations outstanding.

 

“The fourth quarter was challenging for Urologix as the economy continues to pressure elective procedures in urology practices across the country,” stated Stryker Warren jr, CEO. “Despite these challenges, I believe that our competitive position is improving and fueled by recent strategic initiatives. Our patient education programs continue to see early success in raising awareness among the large and growing population of chronic medical therapy BPH patients. Partnering with urologists to introduce these patients to Urologix’s CTT as a safe, effective and durable non-surgical treatment alternative to prescription drugs remains a key focus for our sales teams. The recent addition of Lisa Ackermann as the new Vice President of Sales and Marketing will support our efforts as our team benefits from Lisa’s experience in leading medical device sales organizations.”

 

For the fiscal year 2011 period ended June 30, 2011, revenue totaled $12.6 million, a decrease of 15% compared to revenue of $14.8 million in fiscal year 2010. Fiscal year 2011 revenue performance was impacted by lower order volumes in all three sales channels and the revenue benefit from the temporary market withdrawal of a competitive product in the prior fiscal year period.

 

 
 

 

Gross profit for fiscal year 2011 of $6.5 million, or 52% of revenue, declined 3.5 percentage points year-over-year driven by the higher manufacturing expense per unit due to the lower production volume. Total operating expense of $10.3 million declined 2% year-over-year driven by tightly managed variable expenses which allowed the Company to continue to invest in research and development in 2011. The $2.2 million in research and development expense in fiscal year 2011 represented a 22% increase year-over-year.

 

The Company reported a net loss of $3.7 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, for fiscal year 2011, compared to a net loss of $2.2 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, in the prior fiscal year period.
