EXTON, Pa., Feb. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Kensey Nash Corporation (Nasdaq: KNSY), a medical device company primarily focused on regenerative medicine for a wide range of medical procedures, today reported the results for its second quarter ended December 31, 2010.
Second Quarter Snapshot and Recent Developments
President and CEO Commentary "Although our second quarter results were in line with our expectations, the issues of high unemployment and a challenging health insurance environment continue to impact our industry. However, the inventory reduction efforts by some of our larger customers are subsiding, as we are beginning to experience an increase in orders which should improve our results for the balance of the fiscal year," commented Joe Kaufmann, President and CEO of the Company. "We expect our sports medicine and spine product sales will increase by approximately 30% and 50% sequentially in our third quarter. Overall, sales of our biomaterials products are expected to increase by an amount in the range of 8% to 10% sequentially in our third quarter despite an anticipated decline in cardiology collagen sales to St. Jude Medical of approximately 25%. Furthermore, we are optimistic that our fourth quarter will continue to show growth in our biomaterial business due to the ongoing expansion of the ECM products distributed by our strategic partner, Synthes, as well as an improvement in the overall business climate."

(57%)Total Net Sales$10.9$12.5(13%)$21.8$25.9(16%)Second Quarter Ended December 31, 2010 (Second Quarter Fiscal 2011) ResultsRevenues: Sales and Royalties. Total revenues for the quarter of $17.4 million decreased 9% from total revenues of $19.1 million in the prior year second quarter. Revenues for the quarter increased 2% sequentially from $17.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2011.
Net sales were in line with expectations at $10.9 million, which represents a decrease of 13% from $12.5 million in the prior fiscal year comparable period and were flat sequentially with $10.9 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2011. Total biomaterials products sales were $10.6 million compared to $11.6 million in the comparable prior fiscal year period. Orthopaedic sales, consisting primarily of sports medicine and spine products, decreased $1.2 million to $4.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2011 from $6.0 million in the prior fiscal year comparable quarter. Sports medicine product sales decreased $0.5 million to $2.6 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2011 from $3.1 million in the prior fiscal year comparable quarter. Spine product sales decreased $0.8 million to $2.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2011 from $2.8 million in the prior fiscal year comparable quarter. The decrease in spine product sales reflected a continued overall weakness in the spine market, as well as inventory reductions by the Company's largest spine products customer. Cardiovascular sales of $4.1 million, consisting primarily of sales of vascular closure product components to St. Jude Medical (NYSE: STJ), decreased $0.2 million from $4.3 million in the prior fiscal year period.
Partially offsetting these decreases was an increase in general surgery sales, consisting primarily of sales of the Company's new extracellular matrix (ECM) product, the XCM Biologic which is licensed to the Company's strategic partner Synthes. Sales of ECM products were $1.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2011 compared to less than $0.1 million in the prior year comparable quarter, and the Company expects to experience further increases in the second half of the fiscal year as the ECM product sales continue to expand in the U.S. and as the launch outside the U.S. gains momentum. Offsetting the increase in general surgery sales associated with the ECM products was a decrease in sales of breast biopsy products, which were $0.2 million during the quarter compared to $1.0 million in the prior year comparable quarter due to inventory stocking orders placed in the second quarter fiscal 2010. Endovascular sales during the quarter were $0.3 million compared to $0.8 million in the prior fiscal year second quarter.
Royalty income for the second quarter of fiscal 2011 was $6.5 million, compared to $6.6 million in the comparable prior fiscal year period. Royalty income in the second quarter of fiscal 2011 included $4.9 million in Angio-Seal™ royalties and $1.4 million in royalties from Orthovita, Inc. (Nasdaq: VITA). Angio-Seal™ royalties decreased by approximately 2% or $0.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2011 compared to the prior fiscal year quarter. Royalties from Orthovita decreased by approximately 7% or $0.1 million compared to the prior fiscal year period reflecting the impact of the general negative economic conditions in the spine markets.
Earnings Per Share. Second quarter diluted earnings per share were $0.38, compared to diluted earnings per share and adjusted diluted earnings per share* (which exclude the charges described below) of $0.32 and $0.43, respectively, for the same period of fiscal 2010. Positively affecting the second quarter fiscal 2011 diluted earnings per share when compared to the prior year was a significantly lower number of weighted average common shares outstanding due to the Company's stock repurchase programs. In the second quarter of fiscal 2010, the Company implemented a cost reduction plan which resulted in $1.9 million in charges, consisting of a pre-tax severance charge of approximately $1.0 million and a pre-tax unabsorbed overhead expense charge of approximately $0.9 million. Adjusted diluted earnings per share* for the second quarter of fiscal 2010 exclude these $1.9 million in charges.
Six Months Ended December 31, 2010 ResultsRevenues: Sales and Royalties. Total revenues for the six months ended December 31, 2010 of $34.3 million decreased 12% from total revenues of $38.8 million in the prior fiscal year period.
Net sales of $21.8 million decreased 16% from $25.9 million in the prior fiscal year comparable period. Total biomaterials products sales were $21.1 million compared to $24.2 million in the comparable prior fiscal year period. Orthopaedic sales, consisting primarily of sports medicine and spine products, decreased $2.4 million from $12.5 million to $10.1 million. Sports medicine product sales decreased $1.4 million to $5.3 million in the six months ended December 31, 2010 from $6.7 million in the prior fiscal year comparable period. Spine product sales decreased $1.1 million to $4.5 million in the six months ended December 31, 2010 from $5.6 million in the prior fiscal year comparable period. Cardiovascular sales of $8.4 million, consisting primarily of sales of vascular closure product components to St. Jude Medical, decreased $0.9 million in the six months ended December 31, 2010 from $9.3 million in the prior fiscal year period.
General surgery sales, which include ECM and breast biopsy products, decreased $0.2 million. Sales of the ECM products were $1.7 million compared to less than $0.1 million in the prior year. This increase in ECM product sales reflected the market launch of our new products by our strategic partner, Synthes. Breast biopsy products were $0.2 million compared to $2.2 million in the prior fiscal year comparable period due to inventory stocking orders placed in the first half of fiscal 2010. Endovascular sales for the six months ended December 31, 2010 were $0.7 million compared to $1.7 million in the prior fiscal year period.
Royalty income for the six months ended December 31, 2010 was $12.5 million, compared to $12.9 million in the comparable prior fiscal year period. Royalty income in the six months ended December 31, 2010 included $9.5 million in Angio-Seal™ royalties and $2.8 million in royalties from Orthovita, Inc. Angio-Seal™ royalties decreased by approximately 4% or $0.4 million in the six months ended December 31, 2010 over the prior fiscal year comparable period. Royalties from Orthovita decreased by approximately 3% or $0.1 million compared to the prior fiscal year period.
Earnings Per Share. For the six months ended December 31, 2010 earnings per share were $0.79, compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.75 and adjusted diluted earnings per share* (which exclude the charges described above) of $0.86 for the same period of fiscal 2010. Positively affecting the year to date fiscal 2011 diluted earnings per share when compared to the prior year was a significantly lower number of weighted average common shares outstanding due to the Company's stock repurchase programs.
During the six months ended December 31, 2010, the Company's total tax-effected equity compensation expense was $1.5 million, an increase of approximately $0.4 million from $1.0 million in the prior year comparable period. Tax-effected equity compensation expense for the six months ended December 31, 2010 was higher than the comparable prior year period primarily because the first quarter fiscal 2011 expense included amortized expense related to three years of equity grants, while first quarter fiscal 2010 equity compensation expense included amortized expense for only two years of equity grants.
During the six months ended December 31, 2010, the Company generated cash from operations of $9.4 million and, at December 31, 2010, had $42.8 million of cash and investment balances and total debt of $30.7 million. In January 2011, the Company acquired the net assets of Nerites Corporation, a developer of medical adhesives and anti-fouling coatings for $20 million in cash, of which $17 million was paid at closing with the remainder expected to be paid over the next two years.
Fiscal 2011 GuidanceThe Company currently expects total revenues for fiscal year 2011 will be in the range of $73.0 to $75.0 million. Net sales and royalties are currently expected to be in the ranges of $46.7 to $48.3 million and $26.3 to $26.6 million, respectively. The Company had previously included approximately $1.5 million of endovascular milestone revenue in its guidance but has eliminated this from its current guidance due to the uncertainty of receiving these payments from Spectranectics.
The Company currently expects diluted earnings per share for fiscal 2011 will be in the range of $1.70 to $1.75 (excluding any in-process R&D charges and acquisition costs related to Nerites).
Fiscal 2011 will include a significant investment in research and development, with total research and development spending for fiscal 2011 estimated to be approximately $17 to $18 million. The Company plans to increase its clinical activities for the ECM products in the U.S. and outside the U.S. However, due to the significant cost and risk of obtaining U.S. regulatory approval with the uncertain U.S. regulatory climate, restrictive clinical requirements, protracted patient enrollment and extended follow up timeframe for the Company's cartilage technology in the U.S., the Company is shifting its clinical activities for the cartilage product outside the U.S. The Company plans to reallocate its research and development funds towards products with more predictable near term regulatory approval criteria.
The Company currently expects that its operating margin will be approximately 33% in fiscal 2011 and its balance sheet will continue to be strengthened by adding cash from operations for the full fiscal year of approximately $20 million (excluding any in-process R&D charges and acquisition costs related to Nerites).
The Company is currently estimating that third quarter fiscal 2011 total revenues will be in the range of $18.5 to $19.0 million. Net sales are currently expected to be in the range of $11.7 to $12.1 million, and royalties are currently expected to be in the range of $6.8 to $6.9 million. The Company currently expects third quarter fiscal 2011 diluted earnings per share of $0.42 to $0.44 (excluding any in-process R&D charges and acquisition costs related to Nerites).
Stock Repurchase Update. During the six months ended December 31, 2010, the Company repurchased 1,175,738 shares of Common Stock, at a total cost of approximately $30.0 million, or an average market price of $25.52 per share, using available cash. This completed the latest $30 million repurchase program. The Company had 8,523,360 shares of Common Stock outstanding as of December 31, 2010.
Income taxes. The Company currently estimates that its fiscal 2011 effective tax rate will be between 32% and 33%. In the course of estimating the Company's annual effective tax rate and recording its quarterly income tax provision, the Company considers many factors, including its expected earnings, state income tax apportionment, estimated manufacturing and research and development tax credits, non-taxable interest income and other estimates. Material changes in, or differences from these estimates could have a significant impact on the Company's effective tax rate. As a result of the December 2010 Congressional approval of an extension of the Research and Experimentation (R&E) Tax Credit, the Company recorded retroactive adjustments to its tax provision during its fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2010. The adjustments reflect the fact that the legislation is retroactive to January 1, 2010 and, therefore, reduced the Company's effective tax rate to approximately 29% for the second quarter. The Company anticipates its effective tax rate for each of the third and fourth quarters of fiscal 2011 to be approximately 33%, including the related quarter's R&E Tax Credit effect on the tax provision.

This plan included approximately $1.0 million in severance charges ($660,000 in after-tax charges), or $0.06 per share tax-effected, incurred as a result of headcount reduction, and approximately $0.9 million in unabsorbed overhead expense charges ($610,000 in after-tax charges), or $0.05 per share tax-effected, incurred as a result of reduced work schedules during the second quarter of fiscal 2010.Note: To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, Kensey Nash Corporation uses non-GAAP measures, such as EBITDA and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share.
