Somanetics Reports Financial Results for the Third Quarter of Fiscal 2009

TROY, Mich., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Somanetics Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTS) today reported net revenues of $12.5 million for the third quarter ended August 31, 2009, a one percent increase from $12.4 million in the same period of 2008. For the nine months ended August 31, 2009, net revenues increased five percent to $35.5 million from $33.8 million.

U.S. net revenues increased 10 percent to $10.4 million from $9.4 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2008. International net revenues were $2.1 million compared to $3.0 million. For the nine-month period, U.S. net revenues increased five percent to $28.4 million and international revenues increased five percent to $7.1 million.

Third quarter income before income taxes was $3.5 million compared to $4.7 million in the third quarter of 2008. Net income was $2.2 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, compared with $3.0 million, or $0.23 per diluted share.

For the nine months ended August 31, 2009, income before income taxes was $8.5 million, compared to $11.3 million a year ago. Net income was $5.3 million for the nine-month period, or $0.41 per diluted share, compared with $7.1 million, or $0.51 per diluted share in the same period of 2008.

Gross margin was 88 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2009, compared to 86 percent in the fiscal 2008 third quarter, and was 87 percent for the nine-month period of 2009, the same as a year ago. Cash, marketable securities and long-term investments at August 31, 2009 totaled $77.7 million, with no borrowings.

"The global economic crisis continued to impact our business in the quarter with hospitals limiting capital spending and slowing adoption of new technology," said Bruce Barrett, Somanetics' president and chief executive officer. "Despite this backdrop, we continued to experience solid growth in our disposable sensor business."

International Sales

In the third quarter Somanetics announced the three-year extension of its long-standing exclusive distribution agreement with Covidien to distribute Somanetics' INVOS Cerebral/Somatic Oximeter products in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The extension goes into effect on February 16, 2010, when the current agreement expires.

Sales and Marketing Activities

During the fourth quarter, Somanetics is scheduled to participate in 16 medical conferences, including the 2009 annual meeting of the American Society of Anesthesiologists and various regional and state cardiothoracic, perfusion, anesthesia, pediatric cardiac and critical care and neonatology association meetings.

Vital Sync Launch

The Vital Sync(TM) patient data management system was launched in the third quarter with installations at three beta test sites. The device integrates data from a broad array of hospital bedside devices, such as physiological monitors and ventilators, into a single bedside display for comparison, data management and storage. It has been designed to reduce the time and effort required to collect and organize critical patient data and view patient parameters on one time-synchronized graph. The device compiles data into one interactive display, to facilitate early detection of worsening patient conditions and provide data to refine treatment protocols.

Business Outlook

Somanetics is reiterating its previously announced guidance:

  • Fiscal 2009 net revenues between $50 million and $52 million.

  • Gross margin of approximately 86 percent and operating margin of approximately 20 percent.

  • Fiscal 2009 income before income taxes in the range of $11.2 million to $11.6 million.

Current estimates are based on market and economic conditions, including the assumption that the current economic downturn continues throughout fiscal 2009, and Somanetics' current plans to invest in several areas of its business. Such investments include clinical research, medical education, research and development projects, the continued development and market launch of the Vital Sync System and the addition of sales and clinical education personnel in the U.S. and international markets. Somanetics undertakes no obligation to update its estimates.

Somanetics will webcast its third quarter 2009 conference call at 10:00 a.m. (ET) today.
