Misonix Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2009 Financial Results

FARMINGDALE, N.Y., Oct. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Misonix, Inc. (Nasdaq: MSON), a developer of minimally invasive ultrasonic medical device technology, which in Europe is used for the ablation of tumors and worldwide for other acute health conditions, reported financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2009.

The Company also reported the following financial and operational achievements:

  • A cash payment of $3.5 million was received on April 7, 2009 from the sale of its Ultrasonics Laboratory Products business. Current and prior period results and the gain on the sale of the Ultrasonic Laboratory Products business are reported in the Company's financial statement as discontinued operations
  • Launched two new products into multi-billion dollar market segments
  • Launched a direct sales force in the U.S. for the SonicOne® Wound Cleansing and Debridement System
  • Added 14 new international distributors
  • Reduced inventories by 44% to $6.6 million as of June 30, 2009
  • Reduced accounts payable and accrued expenses and other current liabilities by 37% to $6.5 million
  • Reduced general and administrative expenses by 14% to $9.0 million as of June 30, 2009
  • On August 5, 2009 closed the transaction for the sale of Labcaire Systems, Ltd. to Puricore for up to $5.6 million and is reported as a subsequent event

Revenues for the fourth fiscal quarter ending June 30, 2009 were $10.5 million compared to $10.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2008. The results reflect only continuing operations as of June 30, 2009 and 2008 as discontinued operations are excluded from such results. Discontinued operations represent the results of and the gain from the sale of the Ultrasonic Laboratory Products business. Revenues were adversely impacted by a reduction in medical device products revenues by $902,000 to $5.5 million, partially offset by an increase in Laboratory and Scientific products revenues of $811,000 to $4.9 million. The decrease in medical device products revenue is primarily due to lower sales of ultrasonic probe repairs, MRI repair, replacement probes and our AutoSonix® product to Covidien. The increase in sales of Laboratory and Scientific products was primarily due to an increase in sales at Labcaire for ISIS product and service.

The Company reported a net loss for the fourth quarter ended June 30, 2009 from continuing operations of $804,000 or $.11 per share compared to a loss from continuing operations of $2.4 million or $.35 per share for the three months ended June 30, 2008. During the fourth fiscal quarter 2009, the Company sold its Ultrasonic Laboratory Products business to a subsidiary of Sonics and Materials Inc. for $3.5 million and reported an after tax gain of $2.7 million on the sale. The Company reported net income including the income and the gain on sale from discontinued operations of $2.2 million or $0.31 income per diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2009 as compared to a loss of $2.4 million or $0.34 per diluted share.

Revenues for the twelve months ended June 30, 2009 were $39.8 million compared to revenues of $41.1 million for the twelve months ended June 30, 2008. Medical device products revenues were $22.8 million as of June 30, 2009, a decrease of $1.5 million from the same period in fiscal 2008. Laboratory and Scientific products revenues were $17.0 million, an increase of $161,000 from the same period in fiscal 2008.

Net income was $2.8 million or $.40 income per diluted share compared to a net loss of $2.9 million or $.41 per diluted share, which included income and the gain on sale from discontinued operations of $3.4 million and $536,000 for the periods ended June 30, 2009 and 2008, respectively.

Commenting on Misonix's financial and operating results, Michael A. McManus, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "During the fiscal year 2009 we accomplished a number of goals to increase shareholder value. During a time of challenging global economic conditions, we deemed it strategically important to focus more of our resources on growing our high gross margin medical device business. We successfully reached an agreement to sell our equity interest in Focus Surgery, Inc., in addition to receiving payment for a portion of our debt. The remaining portion will be paid in January 2010. We also sold our Ultrasonic Laboratory Products business for $3.5 million. The cash from these transactions will enable us to seek opportunities to enhance our value by adding new products, increasing our sales efforts, shorten development times and for general corporate purposes.

Our significant investment in R&D over the last few years has provided us with new medical device products that should enable us to grow more rapidly. This year we launched the SonicOne for wound cleansing and debridement and the BoneScalpel(TM) for spinal surgery. Both products are being sold into very large, multi billion dollar market segments. We introduced our own direct sales managers in the U.S. to supplement our contract sales agent network. These individuals, each with more than 15 years experience, together with our contract sales agents, are selling the SonicOne and SonaStar(TM) directly to doctors, hospitals and clinics. This sales force enables us to focus more on the customer and capture substantially more margin on the sale of our products.

To further broaden our sales footprint, we have aggressively expanded into international markets by the signing of 14 new distributors and agencies. We have also hired a new, direct manager to handle Latin American sales and distribution. We continue to work on our European distribution for the Sonablate500®, which uses HIFU for the treatment of prostate cancer in Europe. We have expanded our sales force and added to our distribution network in Italy, Russia, Portugal, Romania, and Bulgaria.

As you know, we have been developing expertise in the exciting new area of High Intensity Focused Ultrasound ("HIFU"). To continue to be a leader in this field, we purchased HIFU related intellectual property that we believe will enable us to develop and manufacture new HIFU transducers. With the development of new transducers, we may be able to increase the type of tissue we can affect beyond our present rights in kidney, liver and breast.

We are continuing to complete clinical evaluation procedures using HIFU for the treatment of kidney tumors at the University of Vienna in Austria. We have received our second 510k in the United States for this treatment.

We are excited about the growth opportunities for our innovative ultrasonic medical device business. With a strengthened balance sheet, exciting new products, a new direct salesforce and broad based international distribution we believe that fiscal year 2010 will be one of growth and expansion for your Company."
