Cardiogenesis Reports Third Quarter 2008 Results

IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cardiogenesis Corporation (Pink Sheets: CGCP), a leading developer of surgical products used in the treatment of patients suffering from severe angina, today reported financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2008.

Third Quarter Financial Results

Sales in the third quarter of 2008 totaled $2,618,000, a 25% decrease from the prior year third quarter sales of $3,486,000. The lower revenue in the current year quarter is primarily attributable to a $534,000, or 59%, decrease in capital sales, and a $326,000, or 14%, decrease in disposable handpiece revenue as compared with the prior year quarter.

Sales in the first nine months of 2008 totaled $9,719,000, an increase of approximately $427,000 or 5% from sales of $9,292,000 in the first nine months of 2007. The year to date increase as compared with the prior year period is primarily attributable to a $712,000, or 38%, increase in capital sales offset by a $255,000, or 4%, decrease in disposable handpiece revenue.

The Company reported a third quarter 2008 operating loss of $310,000 as compared with an operating income of $679,000 in the prior year quarter. The Company's net loss for the quarter was $308,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, as compared with a net income of $590,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, in the 2007 third quarter.

For the first nine months of 2008, Cardiogenesis reported operating income of $235,000 as compared with $888,000 for the same period in the prior year. Net income for the first nine months of 2008 was $258,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared with $662,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, for the first nine months of 2007.

Gross profit decreased by $603,000 to $2,144,000 in the current year quarter as compared with $2,747,000 for the 2007 third quarter. Gross margin was 82% of net revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2008 as compared with a 79% gross margin in the third quarter of 2007. The increase in gross margin for the three month period is primarily attributable to an increase in the average selling price of disposable handpieces.

Gross profit increased by $751,000 to $8,130,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2008, as compared with $7,379,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2007. For the nine months ended September 30, 2008, gross margin was 84% of net revenues as compared to 79% of net revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2007. The increase in gross profit and gross margin for the nine month period is primarily attributable to higher average selling prices for both laser and disposable handpiece units. In addition, during the second quarter of 2008, the company recognized $234,000 of deferred revenue for which there was no associated cost of goods sold.

Research and development costs ("R&D") were $165,000 in the third quarter of 2008 as compared with $103,000 in the 2007 third quarter. Year to date, R&D expenses of $633,000 were $21,000 or 3% higher than the prior year period of $612,000.

Sales and marketing ("S&M") expenses of $1,536,000 in the quarter ended September 30, 2008 increased $290,000, or 23%, compared with $1,246,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2007. For the nine months ended September 30, 2008, S&M expenditures totaled $4,858,000, an increase of $1,590,000, or 49%, compared with $3,268,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2007. The increase for both the quarter and year to date periods is primarily due to higher compensation expenses related to investments made to strengthen the sales and marketing organization.

General and administrative expenditures ("G&A") for the quarter ended September 30, 2008 totaled $753,000 as compared to $719,000 during the quarter ended September 30, 2007. For the nine months ended September 30, 2008, G&A totaled $2,404,000 as compared to $2,611,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2007. This reduction of $207,000, or 8%, is primarily attributable to lower insurance expense in the current year.

Richard Lanigan, Cardiogenesis President stated, "To leverage the investments we have made in our sales organization, we are undertaking a major marketing initiative to drive greater awareness of the benefits of TMR within the cardiology community. As we reported in October we began with a successful kick-off at the recent Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) meeting." Mr. Lanigan explained, "Although intraoperative TMR procedures are performed by the cardiothoracic surgeon, it is the cardiologist that manages the patients and with that patient determines treatment strategies that may include medical management, percutaneous intervention or surgery. Educating cardiologists on the discrete current indications for TMR, as well as future applications is critical to garner their support and referrals for TMR. Engaging them directly will be critical to achieving the clinical and commercial potential of our technology and we plan on providing more color on the topic during our earnings call."
