Improved Efficacy of Cancer Drugs and Cost Savings Driving Demand for
Continuous Infusion of Chemotherapy
NEW YORK, March 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- InfuSystem Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: INHI; INHIW; INHIU), the leading provider of ambulatory infusion pump services for administering chemotherapy, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter of 2007. InfuSystem Holdings' results include results of operations for InfuSystem, Inc. from October 26, 2007 through December 31, 2007.
InfuSystem, Inc. supplies oncology practices, hospitals and their
patients with ambulatory infusion pumps and related services. InfuSystem
also provides 24/7 nursing support to address questions that patients may
have about their pump treatment or other questions related to the pump.
Continuous infusion pumps allow for the gradual delivery of a drug over a
period of days in the privacy of one's home, compared to bolus infusion
chemotherapy treatments that are given in a single high dose over a short
period of time. Improved efficacy of the drugs, patient comfort,
reimbursement to doctors for appropriate services and continuity of care
all play a role in the growing trend toward this form of treatment. The
company has approximately 60% penetration of oncologist practices in the
United States, and agreements with managed care organizations covering over
125 million managed care lives.
-- Completed the acquisition of InfuSystem, Inc.
-- Former president and co-founder of InfuSystem, Steve Watkins, appointed
chief executive officer
-- Sean M. Whelan, CPA, hired as chief financial officer
-- David M. Haar hired as vice president of marketing
-- Scott L. Chesky appointed vice president of strategic development
Mr. Sean McDevitt, chairman of the board, commented, "Following the acquisition of InfuSystem, we are now well underway to completing all of the immediate objectives we had established. Specifically, Steve Watkins, former president and co-founder of InfuSystem took over as chief executive officer of the combined companies. Janet Skonieczny will continue as vice president of operations, Tony Norkus will continue as vice president of sales, and the rest of the management team for InfuSystem will remain intact. Additionally, we hired a first-class chief financial officer and a new vice president of marketing with extensive industry experience. At the same time, we have begun to invest more heavily in national sales and marketing initiatives-the results of which have already become apparent heading into 2008. Most recently, we added a new vice president of strategic development and look forward to a very active year in terms of establishing joint ventures and strategic alliances, as well as identifying potential acquisition candidates with complementary products and services."
Mr. Steve Watkins, chief executive officer, commented, "Sales for the fourth quarter and full year 2007 were consistent with InfuSystem, Inc.'s results for the same periods in 2006. The lengthy acquisition process had the anticipated slowing effect on our sales organization. Following the acquisition, we immediately put in place our aggressive plans to resume and accelerate organic growth-including enhanced training, as well as new directives and incentive plans for the sales force. Overall, we see enormous opportunities ahead as a stand-alone public company and expect demand for continuous infusion pump therapy to continue its momentum of the past few years. Improved efficacy of the drugs as well as greater patient comfort compared to traditional bolus treatment are contributing to increased awareness of continuous infusion. The therapy is advantageous to payors, including managed care organizations, because it is generally less expensive than homecare or hospitalization and may help lower the costs incurred to treat the side-effects that often accompany traditional bolus."
Mr. Watkins continued, "Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common cancer in both men and women. Protocols involving continuous infusion therapy are widely recognized as the standard of care for treatment of stage III CRC - and we are beginning to see treatment expanding to include stage II and stage IV as well. At the same time, continuous infusion protocols have also been approved for other forms of cancer, thereby greatly enhancing the addressable patient population for InfuSystem. Currently, over 120 drug therapy clinical trials involving continuous infusion therapy are being conducted and our plan is to expand our services to patients fighting other cancers. We expect to achieve this efficiently and cost-effectively as InfuSystem already has a strong foothold within the oncology community. We will start by educating our existing base of physicians and oncology nurses, which now includes over 1,500 practices across the United States. Given these strong relationships, we also look forward to leveraging our distribution channel by augmenting our offering to include safety products, disposables and other related items."
Mr. Watkins concluded, "As a leading nationwide provider of ambulatory infusion pump services, InfuSystem is ideally positioned for growth in this expanding yet highly fragmented market. Moreover, we believe we have a very scalable business model and are already benefiting from our status as a stand- alone public company, which has enabled us to begin aggressively pursuing these opportunities. At December 31, 2007, we had approximately $4 million of cash and we continue to generate very strong cash flow heading into 2008, which provides us tremendous flexibility to enhance our capital structure, strengthen our balance sheet and pursue strategic acquisitions going forward."
Revenue for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2007 was $6.6 million, versus $0 for the same period in 2006, which reflects the revenues recognized by InfuSystem Holdings, Inc. following the acquisition of InfuSystem, Inc. from I-Flow Corporation on October 25, 2007.
