Encision Reports Third Fiscal Quarter Results
Date:1/29/2008

BOULDER, Colo., Jan. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Encision Inc. (Amex: ECI), a medical device company owning patented surgical technology that is emerging as a standard of care in minimally-invasive surgery, reported its financial results for its third fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2007.

Net sales for the third quarter of fiscal year 2008, ended December 31, 2007, totaled $3.13 million, representing a 12% increase over net sales of $2.79 million for the prior fiscal year's third quarter. The Company recorded net income of $59 thousand or $.01 per share for the third quarter of fiscal year 2008 compared to a net loss of $49 thousand or $.01 per share for the third quarter of fiscal year 2007. Net loss for the third quarter of fiscal year 2007 included a one-time expense of $73 thousand, or $.01 per share, relating to the costs of obtaining equity capital financing, a project that was subsequently abandoned after the Company obtained a $2 million line of credit facility from SVB Silicon Valley Bank. Gross profit margin for the third quarter of fiscal year 2008 was 65% as compared to 62% for the third quarter of fiscal year 2007. Gross profit margin for the third quarter of fiscal year 2008 included an approximately 1% increase from the third quarter of fiscal year 2007 gross profit margin that was attributed to a decrease in accrued liabilities related to warranty claims and an approximately 1/2% increase in gross profit margin that was attributed to a limited shipment of our internally manufactured scissor inserts.

"Our improvement in net income in the third quarter ended December 31, 2007 was aided by an increase in gross profit margin from our internal scissor insert manufacturing project," said Jack Serino, President & CEO of Encision Inc. "We began transitioning some customers to our lower cost of goods disposable scissor inserts during the past quarter and are starting to see the impact on our bottom line. We expect to be shipping all Encision-made disposable scissor inserts by the middle of our fiscal year that ends March 31, 2009."

Net sales for the first nine months of fiscal year 2008, ended December 31, 2007, totaled $8.88 million, representing an 8% increase over net sales of $8.19 million for the prior fiscal year's first nine months. The Company recorded a net loss of $228 thousand or $.04 per share for the first nine months of fiscal year 2008 compared to net income of $87 thousand or $.01 per share for the first nine months of fiscal year 2007. Gross profit margin for the first nine months of fiscal year 2008 was 63% as compared to 63% for the first nine months of fiscal year 2007.
