MINNEAPOLIS — May 12, 2015 — 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 fiscal year 2015 third quarter ended March 31, 2015.

 

Third quarter revenue totaled $2.8 million, a decrease of 9% from the second quarter of fiscal year 2015 and down 17% compared to the third quarter of the prior fiscal year 2014. The sequential and year-over-year decrease in revenue was driven by a decrease in both Cooled ThermoTherapy and Prostiva® unit sales. The year-over-year decline was partially due to changes from our restructuring launched in April 2014.

 

“The entire team did an excellent job of managing our cash utilization in what was a challenging quarter for top line results. Our minimal cash utilization was predominantly due to changes in working capital. In addition, we are proud to have our technologies highlighted in a podium session at this week’s American Urological Association annual meeting. The presentation demonstrates our compelling combination of low costs and favorable outcomes for patients, providers and payers,” stated Greg Fluet, Chief Executive Officer. “We remain focused on improving cash flows from operations and pursuing alternatives to address the obligations to our creditor.”

 

Total operating expense was $1.5 million for the third quarter of fiscal year 2015, a 37% reduction compared to $2.3 million of operating expense for the third quarter of fiscal year 2014. The decrease in operating expenses compared to the prior year period is primarily a result of the 50% reduction in sales and marketing expense associated with the strategic reorganization the Company implemented in the latter half of fiscal year 2014. Operating expenses were 8% lower compared to the second quarter of fiscal year 2015, which were $1.6 million.

 

 
 

 

The Company reduced its net loss by 79% to a net loss of $349,000, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal year 2015, compared to a net loss of $1.7 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, in the third quarter of fiscal year 2014. The net loss per diluted share was consistent with the second quarter of fiscal year 2015, which was also $0.02 per diluted share.

 

As of March 31, 2015, the Company’s cash balances totaled $532,000, including $40,000 of restricted cash, compared to $570,000 as of December 31, 2014, reflecting cash utilization of $38,000 for the quarter. This decrease in the Company’s cash balances compares to a decrease in the third quarter of the prior year of $451,000. The significant improvement in the Company’s cash utilization compared to the prior year was driven by the positive impact of our previously discussed organizational changes at the end of the 2014 fiscal year. The Company’s cash utilization in the third quarter of both fiscal years 2014 and 2015 reflects non-payment of the annual royalty and license amounts due to Medtronic in those periods and, for the third quarter of fiscal year 2015, also reflects non-payment of promissory note amounts due to Medtronic.

 

The gross profit for the third quarter of fiscal year 2015 was $1.3 million, or 47% of revenue, compared to $849,000, or 25% of revenue, in the third quarter of prior year fiscal 2014. The fiscal year 2014 third quarter costs of goods sold included a $739,000 charge for slow moving Prostiva capital equipment inventory. The gross margin was relatively consistent with the second quarter of fiscal year 2015, with gross profit of $1.5 million, or 48% of revenue, in the second quarter of fiscal year 2015.

 

Regarding Amounts Due to Medtronic

 

As of March 31, 2015, there was a total of $2.8 million due to Medtronic, which amounts currently remain unpaid. This amount consists of the first payment of $1.3 million on the $5.3 million promissory note to Medtronic which was due March 31, 2015 and $1.5 million of royalties and other fees due under the Prostiva license. Royalty payments currently due and unpaid are included in short-term deferred acquisition payments under current liabilities as of March 31, 2015. Because of the non-payment under the promissory note, there existed an event of default as of April 14, 2015 under the note entitling Medtronic to declare all outstanding obligations under the promissory note immediately due and payable. The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to address the outstanding indebtedness to Medtronic. The Company believes that this debt is most likely to be addressed through strategic alternatives, which the Company is diligently pursuing. The Company’s failure to address its indebtedness to Medtronic to Medtronic’s satisfaction may result in seizure by Medtronic of the assets that secure the Company’s indebtedness, loss of control of the Company’s business, bankruptcy or cessation of the business.
