MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Uroplasty, Inc. (Amex: UPI) today reported record net sales of $3.0 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2008 ended September 30, 2007, up 73% from $1.8 million in the year ago quarter. Excluding the translation impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, sales during the second fiscal quarter increased by approximately 66%.

For the three months ended September 30, 2007, sales to customers in the U.S. increased to $1.2 million from $253,000 in the year ago quarter. Sales for the three months ended September 30, 2007 represent a sequential increase of 20% from $1.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2008. Sales to customers outside the U.S. for the three months ended September 30, 2007 were $1.8 million, representing a $318,000 or 21% increase, compared to $1.5 million in the year ago quarter. Excluding the translation impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, sales to customers outside of the U.S. increased by approximately 13%.

David B. Kaysen, Uroplasty's President and CEO said, "We are very encouraged by our record revenue performance this year and our sequential quarterly sales growth in the U.S. Both achievements are due to the growing market acceptance of our Urgent(R) PC system, which contributed to our record performance this year. During the second quarter, we surpassed 200 active customers in the U.S. for our Urgent PC system and doctors are excited about the benefits it provides to their patients. We believe that our Urgent PC system, which received regulatory approvals in the summer of 2006, is the only FDA-approved non-surgical nerv expenses 59,433 55,280 106,763 94,876

"Early in the second quarter, we completed an evaluation of our U.S. market coverage and identified several geographic areas where we believe the market potential justified the addition of employed field sales representatives," continued Mr. Kaysen. "We have now expanded our U.S. field sales organization from four employed representatives at the start of our fiscal year on April 1, 2007 to 17 by the end of October and our goal is to have 20 in place by the end of the fiscal year. We have supplemented the employed field sales people with 11 independent sales representatives' groups."

Kaysen further noted, "We have achieved strong international sales growth this year which is based on a weak first half of fiscal 2007. We expect growth outside of the U.S. to moderate in the second half."

For the six months ended September 30, 2007, net sales of $6.0 million increased 70% from $3.5 million for the same period in the prior year. Excluding the translation impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, sales increased by approximately 64%.

For the six months ended September 30, 2007, sales to customers in the U.S. increased to $2.2 million, compared to $357,000 in the same six-month period last year. Sales to customers outside the U.S. for the six months ended September 30, 2007 were $3.8 million, representing a $592,000 or 19% increase, compared to $3.2 million in the same six-month period last year. Excluding the translation impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, sales to customers outside of the U.S. increased by approximately 12%.

Net loss for the three- and six-month periods ended September 30, 2007 was $1.4 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, and $2.2 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, respectively. Net loss for the corresponding periods in the prior year was $2.2 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, and $3.4 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, respectively.

Non-GAAP operating loss, which excludes non cash charges attributed to SFAS 123 (R) stock options, and depreciation and amortization expenses, as set forth below and reconciled to GAAP operating loss, declined to $616,000 and $1.0 million for the three and six months ended September 30, 2007, respectively, from $1.2 million and $2.4 million for the respective year ago periods. The company attributed the decline primarily to the increase in sales and an improvement in gross margin rate offset partially by a moderate increase in cash operating expenses.

Mr. Kaysen continued, "Based on our year-to-date performance, we now expect our fiscal year 2008 revenue to be between $12.5 million and $13 million. This projection is up from the previous projection of between $11.5 million and $12.5 million. In addition, contingent upon the continued market adoption of our Urgent PC system and the successful expansion of our U.S. direct sales force, we currently believe we can achieve in fiscal 2009 an overall sales growth of 30% to 40% and a U.S. sales growth in excess of 60%."

As previously announced, Uroplasty will host an audio conference call on Thursday, November 1, 2007, at 10.00 a.m. Central Time to review the financial results for the second fiscal quarter. David Kaysen, President and Chief Executive Officer and Medi Jiwani, Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer will host the call.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures. The following table reconciles our non-GAAP financial measures that exclude non cash charges attributed to stock options under SFAS 123 (R), and depreciation and amortization expenses from gross profit, operating expenses and operating loss to our GAAP financial statements above. The non-GAAP financial measures used by management and disclosed by us are not a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures and consolidated financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP, and you should carefully evaluate our reconciliations to non-GAAP. We may calculate our non-GAAP financial measures differently from similarly titled measures used by other companies. Therefore, our non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to those used by other companies. We have described the reconciliations of each of our non-GAAP financial measures above to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Management uses our non-GAAP financial measures, and in particular non-GAAP operating loss, for internal managerial purposes because we believe such measures are one important indicator of the strength and the performance of our business because they provide a link to operating cash flow. We also believe that analysts and investors use such measures to evaluate the overall operating performance of companies in our industry, including as a means of comparing period-to-period results and as a means of evaluating our results with those of other companies.
