Volcano Corporation Reports 13 Percent Growth In Second Quarter Revenues; FFR Disposable Revenues Increase 38 Percent

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Volcano Corporation (NASDAQ: VOLC), a leading developer and manufacturer of precision guided therapy tools designed to enhance the diagnosis and treatment of coronary and peripheral vascular disease, today said revenues for the  second quarter of 2012 increased 13 percent over second quarter revenues a year ago.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2012, Volcano reported revenues of $95.4 million versus revenues of $84.0 million in the second quarter a year ago. Medical segment revenues increased 13 percent versus the second quarter a year ago.

The company reported net income of $3.3 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2012, versus net income of $4.9 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2011.

For the first six months of 2012, Volcano reported revenues of $185.7 million, an increase of 13 percent versus $165.0 million in the same period a year ago. Medical segment revenues increased 14 percent year-over year. The company reported net income of $3.6 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, compared with net income of $6.0 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the first six months of 2011.

"Volcano continued to advance its Functional PCI message among both clinicians and hospital administrators while capitalizing on the macroeconomic trends impacting the sector—including the growing need for evidence and documentation of medical necessity," said Scott Huennekens, president and chief executive officer.

"Our multi-modality platform and technology innovation are driving our market share gains. We are achieving growth greater than the overall growth of the FFR (Fractional Flow Reserve) and IVUS (Intravascular Ultrasound) markets, particularly in FFR where quarterly disposable revenues increased 38 percent versus a year ago. Our gains in FFR and IVUS were offset in part by softness in Southern Europe, and at Axsun Industrial as the telecom market is not yet demonstrating signs of a recovery," he added.

"Also during the quarter, we saw the release of favorable data on Volcano's Instant Wave-Free Ratio Functionality, or iFR Functionality, our adenosine-free FFR technology. Data presented at EuroPCR showed a high level of diagnostic correlation versus FFR," he noted.

Guidance for 2012

The company provided updated guidance for 2012. It now expects revenues for the year will be in the range of $384-$390 million. This compares with prior expectations for revenues of $392-$399 million. The company said the updated expectations for revenues include a $2 million impact from foreign currency exchange rates, a $2 million impact due to slowing of activity in certain Southern European countries and a $4 million impact from Axsun Industrial reflecting continued softness in the telecom sector.

The company now expects gross margins will be 65-66 percent compared with prior expectations of 64-65 percent, and operating expenses will be 58-59 percent of revenues versus prior expectations 57-58 percent.

The company said that it continues to expect a tax rate of approximately 40 percent for the full year, and earnings per diluted share of $0.18-$0.21, compared with prior expectations of $0.21-$0.24 per diluted share. Weighted average shares on a fully diluted basis at the end of 2012 are expected to be 55.5 million.
