MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- IRIDEX Corporation (Nasdaq: IRIX) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended October 1, 2011.
"Third quarter results exceeded guidance for all categories: revenue, gross margin and operating expenses. We were especially pleased to see our core ophthalmology business grow 3% in spite of the macroeconomic uncertainties in the US and Europe and the impact these uncertainties typically have on capital expenditures," said newly appointed President and CEO Dominik Beck. "Our largest trade show, the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, was in October and we were pleased with the business activity at the Academy."
"Since taking the CEO role several weeks ago, I have been encouraged and impressed with the many areas of opportunity that exist for the Company, and I strongly believe I have joined IRIDEX at the right time. Having successfully completed its turnaround, the business is again growing and I believe I can accelerate that growth in 2012 and beyond and increase shareholder value through instituting a more commercial focus and driving new market-facing initiatives," continued Dr. Beck. "IRIDEX is known as a major contributor to the successful laser therapeutic treatment of Retina and Glaucoma diseases and we will focus on increasing our footprint within these diseases."
Guidance for fourth quarter of fiscal 2011: revenue of $11.3 million to $11.5 million, gross margin of 47% to 50% and operating expenses of $4.9 million to $5.1 million.
During the quarter, the Company continued to execute its limited share repurchase program and purchased approximately 33,000 shares at an average price of $3.66.
