Cynosure Reports 53% Increase in Revenues and Returns to Profitability in the Fourth Quarter of 2011

WESTFORD, Mass., Feb. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cynosure, Inc. (NASDAQ: CYNO) today announced financial results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2011.

Fourth-Quarter Financial Results Revenues increased 53% to $34.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2011 from $22.3 million for the same period in 2010.  Income from operations totaled $1.4 million for the quarter, compared with a loss from operations of $626,000 for the comparable period of 2010. Net income for the fourth quarter was $1.1 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $798,000, or $0.06 per basic and diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2010.

"Strong organic growth in North America – coupled with our recent strategic acquisitions – enabled Cynosure to deliver its highest quarterly revenue in more than three years," said President and Chief Executive Officer Michael Davin. "North American laser product revenue increased 90 percent in the quarter over the same period in 2010, stimulated by an expanded product offering and further improvement in the U.S. lending environment for aesthetic equipment. Our ConBio and Eleme Medical acquisitions accounted for about one half of the increase, as the products associated with these transactions are performing well. Our acquisition of distribution rights to the PinPointe FootLaser also contributed to our top-line growth. Equally important, we were encouraged to see 38 percent organic growth compared to the fourth quarter of 2010 in the domestic market."

Gross profit margin for the three months ended December 31, 2011 was 56.3%, compared with 55.9% for the same period of 2010. The increase in gross margin reflected a favorable product mix and a larger percentage of laser product revenue from North America, where average selling prices tend to be higher.

"The improvement of our gross profit margin in the fourth quarter is particularly notable given the addition of ConBio's revenue," Davin said. "Historically, a significant share of ConBio's revenue has come from lower-margin international distribution. As a result, we anticipated that the acquisition would reduce our overall margin in the fourth quarter. Instead, our gross profit margin increased on a higher mix of direct North American ConBio sales, as well as the overall improvement in the U.S. business climate."

Total operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2011 were $17.8 million, or 52% of revenues, compared with $13.1 million, or 59% of revenues, for the fourth quarter of 2010.  

Recent Highlights: Cellulaze Receives FDA Clearance Cynosure announced on January 30th that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration had cleared the Company's newest flagship product – the Cellulaze™ Cellulite Laser Workstation – for commercial distribution. Cellulaze is the first and only minimally invasive medical device approved for the reduction of cellulite, a condition estimated to affect 85% of women over age 20. Cellulaze also is currently being marketed in Canada, the European Union, Australia and South Korea. Cynosure is pursuing regulatory approvals in additional international markets.

"With the addition of Cellulaze to our U.S. product lineup, Cynosure gains a critical first-mover advantage with the world's first aesthetic laser device for longer-lasting cellulite reduction," Davin said. "The product is supported by nearly four years of clinical research that we believe establishes Cellulaze as a new standard of care for this indication."

Business Outlook"We capped a year of steady top-line growth by posting our strongest quarter of 2011, and generating our first profitable quarter in more than three years," Davin said. "Propelled by an improving credit environment, momentum from newly acquired products and organic growth, our full-year revenue of $110.6 million was 35 percent greater than for the full year of 2010. We generated $8.3 million of cash from operations in the quarter and concluded 2011 with a healthy balance sheet including more than $73 million in cash and securities, and no long-term debt."

"With Cellulaze now FDA cleared, we are in the process of establishing several U.S. physician training centers and completing launch preparations," Davin said. "We expect to begin introducing the product in North America by the end of the first quarter, and accelerate production as we move through 2012."
