SAN MATEO, Calif., Sept. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BioForm Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: BFRM) today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full fiscal year ended June 30, 2008. Net sales were $16.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 as compared to $15.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2007, an increase of $1.3 million or 8.4%. The net loss was $20.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 as compared to a net loss of $4.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2007. Net sales were $67.5 million for fiscal year 2008 as compared to $47.4 million for fiscal year 2007, an increase of $20.1 million or 42.4%. The net loss was $29.5 million for the fiscal year 2008 as compared to $13.6 million for fiscal year 2007. The $20.0 million net loss in the fourth quarter and the $29.5 million net loss for fiscal year 2008 each included an $11.2 million charge for acquired in-process research and development arising from the purchase of substantially all assets of Advanced Cosmetic Intervention, Inc. (ACI) in April 2008.
Domestic sales were $13.2 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 as compared to $12.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2007, an increase of $0.5 million or 3.9%. International sales were $3.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2008, as compared to $2.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2007, an increase of $0.9 million or 34.6%. Gross profit was $14.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 as compared to $12.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2007, an increase of $2.0 million, or 16.1%. As a percentage of sales, gross profit for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 was 86.3% as compared to 81.1% for the quarter ended June 30, 2007. The increase in gross profit margin for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 was primarily due to a variation of production volume and overhead expense incurred, and lower royalty license expense.
Operating expenses were $34.7 million in the quarter ended June 30, 2008 as compared to $17.5 million in the quarter ended June 30, 2007. The increase in operating expenses was primarily attributable to the expensing of in-process research and development arising from the acquisition of assets from ACI, an increase in sales and marketing costs as a result of the expansion of the Company's sales forces in the United States and Europe in early fiscal 2008, expansion of the Company's clinical education programs, and additional higher employee-related expenses.
Net loss per share applicable to common stockholders decreased to $0.43 for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 as compared to $1.20 for the quarter ended June 30, 2007, due primarily to the increase in the shares outstanding as a result of the sale of 11.5 million shares of common stock in the Company's November 2007 initial public offering and the conversion of 30.4 million shares of preferred stock into common stock concurrent with this public offering.
Fiscal Year 2009 Guidance:
BioForm Medical is providing the following financial guidance for the
full fiscal year ended June 30, 2009:
-- Revenues are expected to be approximately $74 to $78 million.
-- Gross profit is expected to average approximately 81% to 83% as a
percentage of sales on an annual basis, with some possible fluctuation
outside of this range on a quarterly basis.
-- Operating expenses are expected to be approximately $84 to $86 million.
-- Net loss is expected to be approximately $20 to $23 million.
Product Pipeline Update:
BioForm Medical is providing the following update on its product pipeline:
-- RADIESSE(R) Dermal Filler Next-Generation Products: The Company has a
number of ongoing programs evaluating new forms, applications and
indications of its patent protected RADIESSE dermal filler technology.
The first new commercial product derived from these efforts is expected
to be a form of RADIESSE dermal filler with Lidocaine which may improve
comfort for patients and flow characteristics for physicians, and is
expected to be launched in the United States and Europe in calendar
-- RADIESSE(R) Dermal Filler Post-Market Studies: The Company has
completed and submitted to FDA the results of two post-approval studies
for RADIESSE filler -- a three-year post-approval open-label follow-up
to the pivotal nasolabial fold study to evaluate the long-term safety
and duration of effect with RADIESSE filler, and a study to assess the
safety of RADIESSE dermal filler in nasolabial folds in persons of
color. In the three-year study in nasolabial folds, more than 30% of
treated nasolabial folds were rated by the treating investigator as
improved in patients who were two to three years from their last
injection. No long-term product related adverse events or
delayed-onset adverse events were reported in the study. In the
persons of color study, observed adverse events were typical of dermal
fillers such as redness, swelling, and bruising, and the study found
that RADIESSE dermal filler is safe for use in persons of color. These
studies were conducted pursuant to the requirements of the FDA
associated with the approval for RADIESSE dermal filler for facial
folds and wrinkles.
-- POLIDOCANOL: As announced in a separate press release today, positive
results from the Phase III clinical trial of Polidocanol (European
trade name Aethoxysklerol(R)), a sclerotherapy product for the
treatment of spider and reticular veins, have been submitted to FDA as
part of the New Drug Application (NDA) process. In addition to this
clinical report, BioForm Medical's partner, Kreussler, is completing
manufacturing documentation for a newly expanded manufacturing
facility. The final manufacturing documentation is expected to be
completed and submitted to FDA before the end of calendar year 2008,
consistent with BioForm Medical's previously reported expected timeline
for completion of the NDA submission.
-- RELAXED EXPRESSIONS(TM): As previously announced on April 30, 2008,
BioForm Medical acquired from ACI a minimally invasive bi-polar
radiofrequency 510(k) medical device (renamed "Relaxed
Expressions(TM)") cleared to selectively reduce nerve function. The
Company has recently received an additional 510(k) clearance for a new
treatment profile software upgrade designed to improve outcomes of
procedures with the device. The Company has filed an Investigational
Device Exemption (IDE) with the FDA to conduct clinical studies
specifically intended to support an FDA application seeking clearance
to market this product for the treatment of frown lines. The Company
expects to also seek a CE Mark and certain other international
registrations of the Relaxed Expressions device for aesthetics
-- BIOGLUE Aesthetic(TM) Medical Adhesive: The Company and its partner,
CryoLife, Inc. announced in June 2008 the receipt of a CE Mark for
BioGlue Aesthetic(TM) Medical Adhesive for browplasties in Europe.
Pre-launch activities continue on a limited basis with early users, to
help the Company in its evaluation and development program to identify
and optimize uses of BioGlue Aesthetic adhesive. In the United States,
BioForm has completed a 30-patient feasibility study for the use of
BioGlue Aesthetic adhesive conducted under a U.S. IDE which
demonstrated raised brow position in 89% of patients at 6 months.
BioForm is working with its clinical advisors and FDA to determine the
best design for a pivotal study of BioGlue Aesthetic adhesive to
support U.S. approval.
