Cardiogenesis Reports First Quarter 2008 Results

Company reports 21% sequential growth in domestic handpiece unit sales

IRVINE, Calif., May 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cardiogenesis Corporation (Pink Sheets: CGCP), a leading developer of surgical products and accessories used in angina-relieving procedures, today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2008.

Sales in the first quarter of 2008 totaled $2,982,000, a 12% decrease from the prior year first quarter sales of $3,370,000. During the first quarter of 2008, the Company sold three lasers and 540 handpiece units as compared to five lasers and 656 handpieces during the first quarter of 2007. The lower revenue in the current year quarter is primarily attributable to a $260,000, or 11%, decline in disposable handpiece revenue, and a $104,000, or 14%, decrease in capital sales as compared with the prior year quarter.

"We are very encouraged by the 21% sequential growth in domestic sales of disposable units from the fourth quarter of 2007. We believe it is an indication of the impact our new sales team is having in establishing themselves and increasing the usage of our technology," commented Richard Lanigan, Cardiogenesis' President. Lanigan also noted "The Company continues to balance its investment in sales and marketing with its finances. A combination of an increased ending cash balance of $2,917,000, and the fact that we were essentially break even from operations in the first quarter, means that we can continue to invest in "feet on the street" to maintain our sales momentum."

Cardiogenesis reported a first quarter 2008 operating loss of $37,000 as compared with operating income of $465,000 in the prior year quarter. The net loss for the quarter was $36,000, or $0.00 per basic and diluted share, as compared with net income of $327,000, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share, in the 2007 first quarter.

Gross margin was 82% of sales for the first quarter of 2008 as compared with an 81% gross margin in the first quarter of 2007. Gross profit in absolute dollars decreased by $270,000, or 10%, to $2,457,000 for the current year quarter as compared with $2,727,000 for the 2007 first quarter.

Research and development costs were $216,000 in the first quarter of 2008 as compared with $212,000 in the first quarter of 2007.

Salaries and employee benefit expenditures of $1,524,000 in the quarter ended March 31, 2008 increased $200,000, or 15%, when compared to $1,324,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2007.

Sales, general and administrative expenditures for the quarter ended March 31, 2008 totaled $754,000 as compared to $726,000 during the quarter ended March 31, 2007. This represents an increase of $28,000, or 4%.

As the Company noted in its recent filings, due to disruptions of, and the resulting reduced liquidity in certain financial markets, the Company's AAA rated auction rate securities with a total purchased cost of approximately $350,000 experienced failed auctions during 2008. The securities in question do not have stated maturity dates since they are perpetual securities and reset every 7 to 28 days. Due to the failed auctions, the Company was unable to sell the securities at their respective costs, resulting in a temporary decrease in fair value. As a result, the Company has classified $350,000 of auction rate securities as long-term investments in marketable securities. The Company has concluded that any unrealized losses on these investments are temporary because the Company believes that the decline in market value that has occurred is due to general market conditions, the auction rate securities continue to be of a high credit quality and interest is paid as due and the Company has the intent and ability to hold these investments to maturity or until a recovery in market value occurs. The fair value of these securities could change significantly in the future and the Company may be required to record other-than-temporary impairment charges or additional unrealized losses in future periods.
