RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ThermoGenesis Corp. (Nasdaq: KOOLD), a leading supplier of innovative products and services that process and store adult stem cells, said today that revenues for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010 were $7.2 million versus revenues of $4.0 million for the same quarter a year ago. Revenues in the third quarter of fiscal 2010 were $4.8 million.
The Company recorded disposable revenues of $4.8 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010 compared to disposable revenues of $2.2 million in the fourth quarter a year ago and $3.0 million in the prior quarter.
For the quarter ended June 30, 2010, the Company reported a net loss of $171,000, or $0.01 per share, versus a net loss of $3.1 million, or $0.22 per share, in the fourth quarter a year ago. The results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010 compared to a net loss of $1.4 million, or $0.10 per share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2010. The per share results for all periods have been adjusted to reflect the impact of the Company's reverse stock split that occurred at the close of business on August 26, 2010.
For all of fiscal 2010, ThermoGenesis reported revenues of $23.1 million, an increase of 17 percent versus revenues of $19.8 million in fiscal 2009. Disposable revenues for fiscal 2010 were $14.3 million versus disposable revenues of $10.6 million in fiscal 2009, an increase of 35 percent. The Company reported a net loss of $5.2 million, or $0.37 per share, in fiscal 2010, versus a net loss of $8.6 million or $0.61 per share, in fiscal 2009. The Company ended fiscal 2010 with $10.7 million in cash and short-term investments versus $10.1 million at the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2010 and $15.6 million at the end of fiscal 2009.
"ThermoGenesis ended fiscal 2010 with an excellent quarter, highlighted by a 78 percent increase over revenues from the same quarter one year ago, as we experienced strong sales of our AXP® AutoXpress™ (AXP) System bag sets and strong activity for our BioArchive® Systems. This revenue growth, combined with our success at managing operating expenses, enabled us to reduce our net loss quarter-over quarter by approximately $3 million and achieve near break even," said J. Melville Engle, Chief Executive Officer of ThermoGenesis.
"Our results for all of fiscal 2010 reflect a 17 percent growth in revenues and a 39 percent reduction in our net loss year-over-year. We generated double digit growth in key geographies and, at the same time, we realized meaningful improvement in gross margins as disposable revenues were 62 percent of total revenues versus 54 percent a year ago.
"We ended fiscal 2010 with a number of new distribution agreements in place that will drive our penetration of new geographies, such as Asia, and into expanded clinical indications, including cardiac, during fiscal 2011. In addition, we have a new second-source supplier ramped to full production, which will enable us to meet increased demand for our AXP bag sets during the year."
Engle said two key initiatives for the Company during fiscal 2011 include the initiation of new product use studies designed to demonstrate the efficacy of its bone marrow offerings, the MXP™ MarrowXpress® and Res-Q™ 60 BMC (Res-Q) Systems, and continued product innovation. "We have several bone marrow product studies planned or underway, and data regarding the successful use of these products were presented at this week's International Stem Cell Therapy European meeting," he said. "Secondly, we will be investing in the cell separation arena by adding to our device and disposable product portfolios, especially in the field of bone marrow concentration," he continued.
With respect to the financial outlook for fiscal 2011, Engle commented, "We expect to experience a double digit sales increase year-over-year, with growth in both our cord blood and bone marrow product lines. We also expect steady improvement in our gross margins and continued leverage of our operating expenses. In combination, these trends should result in a profit for the year, with increasing profit by quarter."
Engle continued, "With respect to the first quarter of fiscal 2011, we will record two non-recurring charges. These charges are expected to total approximately $200,000 and include the severance and restructuring costs associated with our July 1, 2010 lay-off and an early termination fee for a facility lease we are vacating. These two actions are part of our overall cost reduction program. Net of these one-time charges, we expect to be profitable for the first fiscal quarter."Company's Conference Call and WebcastManagement will host a conference call today at 2:00 PM Pacific (5 PM Eastern) to review the fiscal 2010 fourth quarter and full year results.Conference call details:Dial-in (U.S.):
