ThermoGenesis Reports Second Quarter 2011 Results; Increased Presence in China
Date:2/10/2011

RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif., Feb. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ThermoGenesis Corp. (Nasdaq: KOOL), a leading supplier of innovative products and services that process and store adult stem cells, reported results for the second quarter of fiscal 2011.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2010, the Company reported revenues of $5.9 million, which compares with revenues of $6.0 million in the second quarter a year ago. Disposable revenues in the second quarter of fiscal 2011 were $3.4 million compared to $3.5 million in the same period a year ago.

ThermoGenesis reported a net loss of $486,000, or $0.03 per share, for the second quarter of 2011, versus a net loss of $1.5 million, or $0.10 per share, in the same period a year ago. Included in the Company’s results for the second quarter of 2011 are $200,000 in strategic advisory fees and approximately $100,000 in non-cash, stock-based compensation expenses attributable to restricted stock related to a distribution agreement with Nanshan Memorial Medical Institute (“Nanshan”). ThermoGenesis ended the second quarter of 2011 with $10.2 million in cash and cash equivalents. This is approximately the same cash balance as in the prior quarter and compares with a balance of $10.7 million at the end of fiscal 2010. Backlog at the end of the second quarter of 2011 was approximately $750,000.

For the first six months of fiscal 2011, revenues were $12.9 million, an increase of 16 percent versus revenues of $11.1 million in the same period a year ago. ThermoGenesis reported a net loss of $554,000, or $0.04 per share, in the first six months of 2011, compared to a net loss of $3.7 million, or $0.26 per share, in the same period a year ago.

Contributing to the Company’s improved bottom line performance in the second quarter of 2011 versus the same period in the prior year were increased gross margins, which were 40% compared to 34% in 2010. This improvement is due to lower contract manufacturing and overhead costs. The Company expects this trend to continue as its sales of disposables increase and further manufacturing efficiencies and scale are achieved.  We expect gross margins to migrate to the 55 to 60 percent range over the long term.

In a separate press release today, the Company announced a product purchase agreement with Beike Biotechnology Co., Ltd (“Beike”), a leading biotechnology company in China that provides stem cell therapies and owns cord blood processing and storage facilities under which ThermoGenesis will supply Beike its AXP® AutoXpress® (“AXP”) and BioArchive® Systems.

“Our revenues in the second quarter benefited from growth in our bone marrow business, which was offset in part by softness in U.S. and European cord blood collections due to the economic environment. In total, while sales were relatively flat from last year’s second quarter, our operating loss dropped significantly.  As a result of our ability to increase gross margins and manage operating expenses, this was the third consecutive quarter in which we have substantially reduced our net loss over the prior year quarter. Year-to-date, we have generated a $3.1 million year-over-year reduction in our net loss,” said J. Melville Engle, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

“We continue to increase our presence in international markets, as evidenced by our new agreement with Beike in China, announced today. We are also having encouraging discussions with potential distribution and development partners as we accelerate our other business development initiatives,” Engle added.

“The major story for us in the second quarter is our exciting development in China. We believe the Chinese cord blood market could equal or exceed the size of the U.S. market in the next 2-3 years. We also believe we have a ‘first mover advantage’ in China. Our previously-announced agreement with Nanshan also bodes well for us as we begin the process to distribute our bone marrow line of products in China.  Our exclusive distribution partner in China consented to the direct sales to Beike and will receive a small royalty in return. We believe we have developed the strongest partners and channels into the Chinese regenerative medicine market of any cell separation equipment provider.  Successes experienced in China should be mirrored in other Asian countries, as well,” Engle added.

The Company provided updated guidance for fiscal 2011. Gross revenues are expected to be greater than the prior year by approximately ten percent, excluding Thermoline revenues for both periods in anticipation of a possible divestiture of the product. The anticipated growth in bone marrow and BioArchive revenues year-over-year is expected to be offset by lower AXP disposable revenues during the balance of the year due to the aforementioned slowing in U.S. and Europe market demand. The Company said it is likely it will not achieve its previously indicated profitability guidance for the full fiscal year due in part to the non-operating charges intended to drive near-term revenue growth and optimize its cost structure.  Non-operating charges include strategic advisory fees, non-cash stock compensation expenses per the Nanshan distribution contract and severance, restructuring and lease termination charges incurred during the first fiscal quarter.
