Cost-effectiveness data covering Cooled ThermoTherapyTM presented at 2014 AUA Annual Meeting in May

 

MINNEAPOLIS — August 19, 2014— Urologix®, Inc. (OTCQB: ULGX), the leading provider of in-office procedures for the safe, durable and effective treatment of BPH, today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2014. The Company also announces that Brian Smrdel, Chief Financial Officer, resigned due to personal reasons effective August 13, 2014. Greg Fluet has been appointed by the Board and has accepted the position of Interim CFO in addition to his current responsibilities as CEO until a suitable replacement is hired.

 

Fourth quarter fiscal year 2014 revenue totaled $3.3 million, down 2% sequentially from the third quarter of fiscal year 2014 and down 21% compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013. The sequential decrease in revenue was driven primarily by reduced sales of Cooled ThermoTherapyTM (CTT) products partially offset by a slight increase in Prostiva® products. The year-over-year decline in revenue was driven by a decline in sales of CTT and Prostiva products compared to the prior year.

 

“Urologix successfully completed a major restructuring of our business in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2014. As part of this restructuring we deployed a new sales model that leverages a smaller field sales team by deploying inside sales resources and our mobile service to deliver on our commitment to patients and meeting our urology customers’ needs. The team demonstrated this commitment by delivering on our sales plan for the quarter resulting in minimal cash utilization”, stated Greg Fluet, Chief Executive Officer. “Our goal is to end fiscal year 2015 with positive cash flow from operations and build upon the recent data presented at the AUA on the cost-effectiveness of our in-office BPH CTT technology. The data presented at the AUA showed that the compelling comparative value of our technologies is driven by both the low-cost of the procedure and the strong safety, durability and effectiveness. We believe both CTT and Prostiva will become more important to optimizing BPH care pathways as demand for cost-effective therapies continues to grow.”

 

 
 

 

As of June 30, 2014, the Company’s cash balance was $718,000 compared to $816,000 as of March 31, 2014, reflecting cash utilization of $98,000 in the fourth quarter. The cash utilization in the quarter includes the impact of approximately $80,000 in cash payments related to the restructuring that occurred in April 2014. In the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013, the Company spent $2.8 million which included a $2.0 million payment to Medtronic as part of a debt restructuring agreement to pay off obligations deferred from earlier in that fiscal year. Net of the debt restructuring payment, the cash balances decreased $844,000 in the prior year period. The Company’s cash needs will be determined by a number of items including operating performance and the timing of annual royalty payments for Prostiva due and unpaid as of June 30, 2014. Royalty payments and other fees due Medtronic total $715,000 and are included in short-term liabilities as of June 30, 2014.

Regarding the amounts due and unpaid to Medtronic, “Urologix and Medtronic both share a sincere commitment to patients and urologists. We recognize Medtronic’s continuing rights under the agreements, and are working with Medtronic in our effort to restructure the business, both directly and through Medtronic’s engagement as an observer on our Board of Directors” stated Greg Fluet, Chief Executive Officer.

On a full year basis, the Company’s cash balance decreased $1.6 million in fiscal year 2014, compared to cash utilization of $3.7 million in fiscal year 2013, after adjusting cash balances for financing proceeds of $3.8 million and the receipt of $321,000 from the demutualization of an insurer. Including the financing proceeds and gain from the demutualization of an insurer, the Company’s cash balance increased $391,000 in fiscal year 2013.

Gross profit for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2014 was $1.6 million, or 48.0% of revenue, compared to $1.9 million, or 45.5% of revenue, in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013. The increase in the gross margin rate is due to the fourth quarter fiscal year 2013 cost of goods including an impairment charge of $274,000 related to intangible assets acquired with the Prostiva product line. Excluding the impairment charge, gross margins would have decreased by approximately 4 percentage points driven primarily by product sales mix, lower production volumes and lower margins associated with our mobile service offering.

 

The Company performed our annual goodwill impairment test as of April 30, 2014, which included as part of the testing, fair valuing all of our assets and liabilities, including those obtained as part of the Prostiva acquisition. It was determined that the fair value of the Company could no longer support the carrying value of the goodwill acquired in that acquisition.   As a result, we recorded a $3.0 million non-cash goodwill impairment charge in our statements of operations. 

Total operating expense was $5.0 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2014, which includes the impairment of goodwill resulting from the Prostiva acquisition of $3.0 million. Excluding the goodwill impairment charge, fourth quarter fiscal year 2014 operating expenses were $2.0 million, compared to operating expenses of $3.1 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013. The fourth quarter operating expense for fiscal year 2014 benefited from the restructuring of the Company announced on April 11, 2014.

 

For the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2014, Urologix reported a net loss of $3.5 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1.2 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013.

 

 
 

 

For the fiscal year 2014 period ended June 30, 2014, revenues totaled $14.2 million, down 14.2% compared to revenues of $16.6 million in fiscal year 2013. The year-over-year decline in revenue was driven by similar declines in sales of Cooled ThermoTherapy (CTT) products and Prostiva Radio Frequency (RF) Therapy products.

 

Gross profit for fiscal year 2014 was $6.1 million, or 42.8% of sales. Gross profit was negatively affected by a $739,000 non-cash charge associated with the write down of Prostiva capital equipment inventory in the third quarter of fiscal year 2014. The write down was triggered by the low volume of sales of the capital equipment and does not affect the marketability of the product.

 

Total operating expense in fiscal year 2014 was $13.0 million. Excluding the $3.0 million goodwill impairment charge, operating expenses were $10.0 million in fiscal year 2014 compared to operating expenses of $12.1 million in fiscal year 2013. The Company reported a net loss of $7.6 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, for fiscal year 2014, compared to a net loss of $4.3 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, in the prior fiscal year period.
