ThermoGenesis Reports First Quarter 2009 Results

RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif., Nov. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ThermoGenesis Corp. (Nasdaq: KOOL), a leading supplier of innovative products and services that process and store adult stem cells, today reported results for the first quarter of fiscal 2009.

Revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2008, were $4.5 million, a 24 percent increase over revenues of $3.6 million in the first quarter a year ago. Disposable revenues were $2.1 million versus $1.9 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2008.

The Company reported a net loss of $2.7 million, or $0.05 per share, compared with a net loss of $2.3 million, or $0.04 per share, in the same period a year ago. The results for both periods include stock-based compensation expense of $123,000 and $628,000, respectively.

The company's results for the quarter reflect an accrual of $520,000 included in cost of revenues resulting from a voluntary recall of certain lots of AXP disposable bag sets as they may contain particulates that may be released into the sterile, non-pyrogenic fluid path. This recall was not a result of any reports of patient safety issues. The Company's recall plan is being filed this week and is subject to approval by the FDA. The Company believes that it has adequately accrued for the costs related to this plan, but the estimate may change depending on the discussions with the FDA. As part of the recall plan, the Company will provide customers a blood filter to be used, as necessary, with any bag already processed.

The Company ended the first quarter of fiscal 2009 with $22.3 million in cash and short-term investments, compared to $25.3 million at the end of fiscal 2008. Total backlog at the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2009 was $1.8 million, versus $5.5 million in the same period a year ago.

"Our revenues reflect increased sales of and improved pricing for our BioArchive(R) System and AXP(TM) AutoXpress Platform (AXP(TM)) devices and disposable bag sets. In addition, we were able to reduce our operating expense by almost $1 million versus the fourth quarter of last year as we implemented programs designed to achieve profitability during the current fiscal year," said Dr. William Osgood, Chief Executive Officer.

Osgood said that sales of AXP bag sets during the first quarter of fiscal 2009 were impacted by short-term delays in shipments of AXP devices due to a flawed supplier component, and because the Company filled nearly its entire AXP bag set backlog during the prior quarter.

"We continue to be excited about the distribution agreement with Celling Technologies, a subsidiary of Spine-Smith, LLC, for our MarrowXpress(TM) (MXP(TM)) that we announced last quarter. Celling will be using the MXP for bone marrow stem cell processing in orthopedic surgeries. We expect to see initial revenues during the current quarter from this agreement," Osgood noted.

With respect to fiscal 2009, the Company said it now expects overall revenue growth to be 10-20 percent versus fiscal 2008. This compares to prior guidance for revenue growth of 30-35 percent, reflecting a refined strategy for the Company's Vantus subsidiary that will now focus initially on the Company's Res-Q(TM), a point-of-care solution for bone marrow processing and concentrating platelets from peripheral blood. The Company continues to expect gross margin improvement during the year with fourth quarter 2009 gross margin expected to exceed 40 percent. The company said that it expects to be profitable in the fourth quarter, based on its ability to add new AXP customers, initiate a successful market launch of MXP and Res-Q, and continue aggressive management of expenses in proportion with expected decreases in forecasted revenue.
