ST. LOUIS, Sept. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing weakness in domestic markets for hospital equipment and a decline in international sales caused a loss for Allied Healthcare Products (NASDAQ: AHPI) in its fourth quarter and for the full fiscal year 2013.
The net loss for the fourth quarter ending June 30 was about $98,000, or a negative 1 cent per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of about $156,000, or a negative 2 cents per share, for the prior year. Sales for the fourth quarter declined from about $10.7 million to about $10.1 million, or about 6 percent, from the previous year.
For the fiscal year, the net loss for Allied was about $1.3 million, or a negative 16 cents per basic and diluted share, versus a net loss of about $424,000, or a negative 5 cents per basic and diluted share, for the prior year. Sales for the fiscal year fell about 11 percent, from about $43.4 million to about $38.6 million.
International sales dipped in the year. The decrease in international sales was concentrated in Venezuela. The Company believes this decrease in sales to Venezuela was a result of the change in the political leadership of that country.
A bright spot in sales came from Allied's new carbon dioxide absorbent Litholyme®, used in anesthesia procedures. Absorbent sales, including Litholyme®, increased about 38 percent in the fiscal year, totaling $2.4 million. "We will continue to add to the growing base of hospitals that we have converted to Litholyme® in future quarters, further increasing sales," said Earl Refsland, Allied president and chief executive officer.
In a one-time event, Allied booked about $516,000 in income in January 2013 from the demutualization and sale of its product liability insurer.
In what will be a recurring expense, Allied paid a new excise tax on medical devices levied as part of the Affordable Care Act. The tax is 2.3 percent on certain devices and cost Allied $150,000 during the six-months since the tax was implemented on January 1, 2013.
