FARMINGDALE, N.Y., Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Misonix, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSON), a surgical device company that designs, manufactures and markets innovative therapeutic ultrasonic products worldwide for spine surgery, cranial maxillo – facial surgery, neurosurgery, wound debridement, cosmetic surgery, laparoscopic surgery and other surgical applications, today reported financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013, ended September 30, 2012.
Highlights for the quarter and the fiscal year include:
Q1 2013 Financial Results:
For the first quarter of fiscal 2013, revenue increased 42% to $4.6 million compared to $3.2 million in the first quarter of 2012. BoneScalpel revenue for the quarter increased 220% to $2.1 million compared to $655,686 in last year's first quarter. SonicOne revenue increased 97% to $500,886 compared to $254,387 in the first quarter last year. SonaStar revenue increased 21% to $1.6 million compared to $1.3 million in the first quarter last year.
Gross margin increased to 59.7% for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 from 54.8% for the first quarter ended September 30, 2012. Operating expenses for the first fiscal quarter increased nine percent primarily attributable to continued expansion of the Company's in-house sales force, commissions on expanded product sales and increased advertising and depreciation expense due to increased rented/leased/no-cap units in the field. Income from continuing operations before income taxes for the quarter was $40,016 compared to a loss from continuing operations before income taxes of $799,026 in the first quarter of 2012.
The financial results for the first quarter included net income from discontinued operations of $6,318, or $0.00 per fully diluted share – adjusted for taxes – primarily related to the sale of the Company's Laboratory and Forensic Safety Products business.
For the first quarter of fiscal year 2013, the Company reported net income of $44,834, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $833,942, or $(0.13) per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2012.
Michael A. McManus Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of Misonix, commented, "We are off to a very good start in fiscal 2013. We achieved strong revenue growth across our major product lines. First quarter sales in the U.S. increased 30% and International sales increased 58% as our distribution networks continue to gain traction. We had exceptionally strong revenue increases in Asia, Australia, South America and South Africa.
"We continue to expand our distribution capabilities both in and outside the U.S. We are beginning to see the acceptance of our SonicOne for the treatment of wounds in operating room procedures. We are pleased with the way that our products are being accepted by the surgical community worldwide. Our BoneScalpel enables surgeons to make precision cuts in bone – from the spine to the skull and on to delicate facial surgical procedures – while avoiding damage to soft tissue and nerves in a manner that will result in better patient outcomes, improved quality of life, and generate cost efficiencies across the patient's treatment continuum."
"I was very excited by the reception that our BoneScalpel product received at the recent North American Spine Society Show (NASS) in Dallas," commented Mr. McManus. "We met with a number of surgeons that have recently integrated the BoneScalpel into their respective practices and we are very pleased with the positive comments made relating to ease of use of the instrument, the reduction of time in completing procedures and patient outcomes.
"During the NASS event, Isador H. Lieberman, MD, MBA, FRCSC, of the Scoliosis and Spine Tumor Center, Texas Back Institute, Plano, Texas, released an abstract of a paper submitted for publication based on the results of 128 patients that he treated utilizing the BoneScalpel. Dr. Lieberman concluded that "the BoneScalpel is a safe and effective ultrasonic bone cutting device that can be used to facilitate osteotomies in a variety of spine surgeries. This device eliminates the risk of soft tissue injury associated with the use of high speed burrs and oscillating saws during spine surgery.
"In addition, at NASS, there were presentations highlighting outcomes when the BoneScalpel was used as the exclusive bone cutting tool in complex, spine deformity cases, plus a special Bio-Skills Laboratory was conducted where 46 spine surgeons were exposed to the clinical benefits of the BoneScalpel. All things considered, the NASS was an extraordinary event."
Mr. McManus concluded, "We continue to have a solid balance sheet with $6.7 million in cash and equivalents and zero long-term debt. We are pleased with the progress and the measurable results that indicate success in the execution of our strategic plan as a focused medical device company."
