Electromed, Inc. Reports Higher Fiscal 2014 Third Quarter Revenues

May 13, 2014

NEW PRAGUE, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Electromed, Inc. (NYSE MKT: ELMD) today announced financial results for the three-month period ended March 31, 2014. Net revenues in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 were approximately $3.96 million, an approximately 24% increase compared to the same period of fiscal 2013. The Company reported a net loss of approximately $1,004,000 or $0.12 per basic and diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2014, compared to a net loss of approximately $431,000, or $0.05 per basic and diluted share, for the same period last year. In the quarter, the Company recorded a valuation allowance of $843,000 against all of its U.S. net deferred tax assets. This amount is included in the income tax line on the accompanying income statement for the third quarter and nine months ended March 31, 2014.

Homecare revenue of approximately $3.2 million in the third quarter was up approximately 24% due to an increase in approvals and higher average selling price based on the mix of referrals while international and government/institutional revenue of approximately $729,000 was up approximately 24% versus the prior year period. Gross margins in the third quarter declined to 63.7% compared with 76.3% in the third quarter of fiscal 2013. The decline was largely attributable to higher manufacturing costs for the Company’s newest product, the SmartVest® SQL® compared to predecessor products. The SQL is early in its life cycle and efficiencies in manufacturing and sourcing have not yet been fully realized. Operating expenses were essentially flat at approximately $2.6 million, but declined as a percentage of sales due to the higher revenues in the third quarter of fiscal 2014 as compared to the third quarter of the prior year.

The Company had positive operating cash flow of approximately $1,020,000 for the nine months ended March 31, although it recorded negative operating cash flow of $112,000 in the third quarter due to payments made for inventory used to manufacture the SQL device. The larger net loss in the third quarter compared to the same period in the previous year was due to the valuation allowance recorded against the Company’s U.S. net deferred tax assets. The valuation allowance is based on the Company’s belief that, after considering all positive and negative evidence including both cumulative and projected results, it is more likely than not that the deferred tax assets will not be realized in the foreseeable future.

Commenting on the Company’s third quarter results, Electromed's Chief Executive Officer, Kathleen Skarvan said, "This quarter showed good progress on a number of fronts as we increased revenues, maintained strong control on expenses and, perhaps, most significantly, delivered our newest HFCWO device to the marketplace. The SQL is truly a step forward as it is smaller, quieter and lighter than our previous device. These are the characteristics most often requested by patients and providers and we delivered.

"The initial response to SQL has been encouraging as referrals increased nearly 8% in the third quarter compared to second quarter with the referral rate rising as the quarter progressed. We believe that trend indicates that the market is recognizing the value the SQL delivers to patients. Our plan has been and continues to be to offer both the SQL and SV2100, our previous HFCWO device, for a period of time as we transition to a primarily SQL-based lineup over the next several quarters.

"We have several initiatives underway to bring the manufacturing cost of the SQL in line with previous devices and we expect to see incremental progress in this area over coming quarters. We expect that SQL’s costs will eventually be consistent with previous products, resulting in gross margins that are generally similar with historical levels.

"Reimbursement continues to be challenging for virtually all companies serving the health care market and we are no exception. I continue to be pleased with our team’s efforts to both manage expenses and move reimbursement claims through the system successfully. We remain focused on executing our strategies to increase revenue from the homecare market while continuing to support growth in institutional and international markets."
