Patient Safety Technologies Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results

IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Patient Safety Technologies, Inc. (the "Company", OTCBB: PSTX, OTCQB: PSTX) today announced results for its third quarter of 2012 ended September 30th, 2012.

Expanded Customer Base and Financial Highlights
During the third quarter of 2012 the Company successfully implemented its SurgiCount Safety-Sponge® System in an additional 50 facilities, growing its total installed customer base to 265 as of September 30th, 2012.  This compares to 79 facilities as of the end of the third quarter of 2011 and 99 as of the end of the fourth quarter of 2011, representing year-to-date and year-over-year growth of 168% and 235%, respectively.  Additionally, subsequent to the end of the third quarter 2012 the Company has successfully implemented the Safety-Sponge® System in an additional 4 facilities through the date of this press release and has signed agreements with additional stand-alone hospitals and hospital systems representing an additional 17 facilities.  This expanded user base brings the total facilities currently using the Safety-Sponge® System and those covered with signed agreements and expected implementations to 286.  Although not necessarily proportional to reported revenues, the number of hospitals using the Company's products is a good indicator of its underlying business.

Total revenue for the third quarter of 2012 was $5.0 million. This compares with total revenue for the third quarter of 2011 of $2.2 million, representing year-over-year growth in reported quarterly revenue of 127%. 

Reported operating expenses totaled $2.4 million for the third quarter of 2012, an increase of $0.9 million compared to $1.5 million of operating expenses during the same period in 2011. The increase in operating expenses was primarily due to higher one-time costs associated with the 50 successful new customer implementations during the third quarter of 2012 as compared to 2 implementations during the third quarter of 2011.  Total estimated one-time implementation costs in the third quarter of 2012 were approximately $0.6 million, as compared to a relatively negligible amount of implementation costs during the third quarter of 2011.During the third quarter of 2012 the Company generated positive Adjusted Operating Income (a non-GAAP measure defined below) of $0.7 million and a GAAP operating loss of $0.1 million.  This compares with an Adjusted Operating Loss of $0.1 million and a GAAP operating loss of $0.5 million generated during the third quarter of 2011.  The primary reason for reporting positive Adjusted Operating Income during the third quarter of 2012 as compared to an Adjusted Operating Loss during the comparable prior year period, was higher reported revenues associated with the significantly larger number of customer facilities during the third quarter of 2012 versus the prior year period.

"In the third quarter we successfully continued the strong customer growth that we realized throughout the first half of the year, adding another 50 new hospitals during the quarter which helped us achieve 235% year-over-year growth in our installed base.  This continued market penetration drove the significant growth in our reported revenues and has brought us to a size where we can more readily demonstrate the operating leverage of our business by reporting positive adjusted operating income," stated Brian E. Stewart, President and Chief Executive Officer of Patient Safety Technologies, Inc.The Company's third quarter of 2012 financial statements are included in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed by the Company on November 5th, 2012 and available at the SEC's website at of GAAP to Non-GAAP Results (Unaudited)Non-GAAP Measures:

(1,239.3)To supplement the Company's presentation of revenue and operating income and (loss) measured in accordance with GAAP, we use a non-GAAP measure of revenue, herein defined as Normalized Revenue, and a non-GAAP measure of operating income, herein defined as Adjusted Operating Income (in the event this amount is negative it is herein defined as Adjusted Operating Loss).  Reconciliation of GAAP revenue to Normalized Revenue and operating income to Adjusted Operating Income or Loss for the third quarters of 2012 and 2011 are shown above.  How we define these non-GAAP measures herein may not be consistent with how we have defined this non-GAAP measure historically, including but not limited to including the impact from Forward Order revenue, or stocking order revenue (see the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for a discussion on the Forward Order).

Non-GAAP measures are provided to enhance investors' overall understanding of the Company's current financial performance, prospects for the future and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. The Company believes that the use of non-GAAP revenue and operating income provides meaningful supplemental information regarding financial performance by excluding certain expenses and benefits that may not be indicative of recurring core business operating results. The Company believes these non-GAAP measures, which exclude the effects of the Forward Order and the non-cash expenses of depreciation, amortization and stock based compensation (and occasionally along with certain events believed to be one time in nature) when viewed with GAAP results and the accompanying reconciliation, enhances the comparability of results against prior periods and allows for greater transparency of financial results.  The Company believes these non-GAAP measures facilitate management's internal comparison of the Company's financial performance to that of prior periods as well as trend analysis for budgeting and planning purposes. The presentation of these non-GAAP measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.
