Overview of Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2016

Financial Results for the Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2016

For the quarter ended June 30, 2016, total revenue of $13.0 million represented an increase of 17% as compared to $11.2 million in the year ago quarter. Revenue in the year ago quarter included $0.5 million associated with a Stryker Corporation endoscopy distribution arrangement that was unprofitable for the Company and was not renewed at end of calendar 2015. Excluding this $0.5 million impact, revenue would have increased 22% over the comparable year ago period.

The revenue growth is attributable to global growth of the Company’s Urgent PC and endoscopy (PrimeSight™) product lines. Global revenue from Urgent PC totaled $5.4 million, up 15% from the same period last year. Global revenue from all endoscopy technologies totaled $5.3 million, up 25% from the comparable year ago period.  Global Macroplastique revenue totaled $2.0 million, up 2% from the comparable period a year ago. 

Gross margin for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 was 68.6%, up 140 basis points from the 67.2% gross margin in the year ago period. Operating expenses in the quarter totaled $11.2 million, as compared to $10.7 million in the same period of the prior year.  Excluding one-time costs of $2.2 million associated with the Company’s annual shareholder meeting and the resulting settlement agreement including severance, operating expenses totaled $9.0 million, a decrease of $1.2 million from the $10.2 million in operating expense (excluding one-time merger related costs of $0.5 million) in the year-ago quarter. 

Operating loss in the quarter was $2.3 million, compared to $3.2 million a year ago.  Cash operating profit was $0.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, excluding all non-cash items and one-time costs. This compares to a cash operating loss of $1.7 million in the year-ago quarter. The GAAP loss per share was $0.10 in the quarter ended June 30, 2016, compared to a GAAP loss per share of $0.14 in the comparable year-ago period. 

At June 30, 2016 the Company’s cash balance totaled $2.9 million. The Company added $0.7 million of cash to the balance sheet during the quarter and there were no borrowings under the Company’s $7.0 million line of credit as of June 30, 2016.

Six Month Financial Results Ended June 30, 2016

For the six-month period ended June 30, 2016, total revenue of $25.2 million represented an increase of 39% when compared to the year ago period.  This increase is due to the merger with Vision-Sciences on March 31, 2015 and Urgent PC growth of 11%. 

Operating loss for the six months ended June 30, 2016 was $2.8 million while cash operating profit was $1.3 million, excluding all non-cash items and one-time costs. 

Outlook

The Company re-affirmed its guidance for a cash operating profit (excluding one-time charges associated with the Company’s 2016 annual shareholder meeting and the resulting settlement agreement including severance) for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2016. This result would be a significant improvement over the calendar year 2015 pro forma cash operating loss of $3.7 million and the calendar year 2014 pro forma cash operating loss of $9.1 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We present four additional tables to assist with additional analysis.

The first table under Q2 Additional Information is “Revenue by Product (Unaudited)” and provides a breakdown of revenue by product for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015. 

The second table under Q2 Additional Information is “Cash Operating Profit (Unaudited)” and provides the non-GAAP cash operating profit for the Company for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015.  This table reconciles the Company’s operating loss calculated in accordance with GAAP to the Company’s cash operating income / loss, a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes non-cash charges for share-based compensation, long-term incentive plan, depreciation and amortization as well as one-time costs related to the proxy settlement and merger related costs. 

The first table under YTD Additional Information is “Pro forma Combined Revenue (Unaudited)” and provides the non-GAAP, pro forma combined revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2015 as if Vision-Sciences, Inc. and Uroplasty, Inc. had merged as of January 1, 2015 (actual merger date was March 31, 2015) and is the sum of the historical results of each predecessor company for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 plus the reported results of the Company for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.  

The second table under YTD Additional Information is “Pro forma Cash Operating Profit (Unaudited)” provides the non-GAAP, pro forma combined statement of operations of Vision-Sciences and Uroplasty as if they had merged as of January 1, 2015 (actual merger date was March 31, 2015) and is the sum of the historical results of each predecessor company for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 plus the reported results of the Company for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.  This table reconciles the Company’s operating loss calculated in accordance with GAAP to the Company’s pro forma cash operating income / loss, a non-GAAP financial measure that exclude non-cash charges for share-based compensation, long-term incentive plan, depreciation and amortization as well as one-time costs related to the proxy settlement and merger related costs. 

The non-GAAP and/or pro forma combined financial information used by management and disclosed by us is not a substitute for, nor superior to, financial information and consolidated financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP, and you should carefully evaluate our reconciliations to non-GAAP.  We may calculate our non-GAAP, pro forma combined financial information differently from similarly titled measures used by other companies.  Therefore, our non-GAAP, pro forma combined financial information may not be comparable to those used by other companies.  We have described the reconciliations of each of our non-GAAP, pro forma combined financial information to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

We use this non-GAAP financial information, and in particular non-GAAP cash operating income / loss, for internal managerial purposes because we believe such measures are one important indicator of the strength and the operating performance of our business.  Analysts and investors frequently ask us for this information.  We believe that they use this information to evaluate the overall operating performance of companies in our industry, including as a means of comparing period-to-period results and as a means of evaluating our results with those of other companies.
