BOULDER, Colo., July 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Encision Inc. (OTCQB:ECIA), a medical device company owning patented surgical technology that prevents dangerous stray electrosurgical burns in minimally invasive surgery, today announced financial results for its fiscal 2015 first quarter ended June 30, 2014.
The Company posted quarterly net revenue of $2.476 million for a quarterly net loss of $202 thousand, or $(0.02) per share. These results compare to net revenue of $2.682 million for a net loss of $311 thousand, or $(0.04) per share, in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin on net revenue was 49.4 percent in the fiscal 2015 first quarter and 54.4 percent in the fiscal 2014 first quarter. Gross margin on net revenue was lower in the fiscal 2015 first quarter as a result of scrap costs and higher unit overhead costs on lower sales volume. The medical device excise tax is included in other expense.
"We are disappointed with our 8% decrease in net revenue for the first quarter compared to last year's first quarter," said Greg Trudel, President and CEO. "We have realigned our sales structure and increased regional responsibilities among our team to provide greater customer support and drive results in the U.S. market."
"Our marketing emphasis and expanded sales channel are making great strides in creating awareness of the risks of stray energy and the new levels of safety that AEM® Technology brings to advanced energy used in laparoscopic surgery. Coupling this market momentum with the impending launch of our new AEM EndoShield™ Burn Protection System will provide our customers with new levels of clinical and economic value and drive technology adoption."
Encision Inc. designs and markets a portfolio of high performance surgical instrumentation that delivers advances in patient safety with AEM technology, surgical performance, and value to hospitals across a broad range of minimally invasive surgical procedures. Based in Boulder, CO, the company pioneered the development and deployment of Active Electrode Monitoring, AEM technology, to eliminate dangerous stray energy burns during minimally invasive procedures.
