Electromed, Inc. Reports Fiscal Year 2013 Third Quarter Results

NEW PRAGUE, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Electromed, Inc. (NYSE MKT: ELMD) today announced financial results for the three-month period ended March 31, 2013. Net revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2013, were approximately $3,199,000, a 33.0% decrease compared to net revenues of approximately $4,774,000 for the same period last year. The Company also announced net loss of approximately $431,000, or $(0.05) per basic and diluted share, for the three months ended March 31, 2013, compared to net income of approximately $95,000 or $0.01 per basic and diluted share, for the same period last year. The decrease in net income primarily resulted from a decrease in homecare revenue partially offset by decreases in expenses. The decrease in homecare revenue was caused by downward pressure on pricing and added administrative procedures implemented by third party payers in the insurance claims process which has lengthened the approval process. Although total revenue was down, the Company experienced growth in international revenue of $50,000 to $215,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013, as well as increases in government/institutional revenue of $124,000 to $373,000 compared to the same period last year.

Chief Executive Officer, Kathleen Skarvan said, "We believe we've hit the low watermark in terms of revenues and we are slowly seeing upward progress. While the beginning of calendar year 2013 continued to be a challenging selling and reimbursement environment, we achieved record referrals in the third quarter and approvals trended positively in the latter half of the quarter which speaks to the strength of our sales force and reimbursement teams. We see the positive momentum continuing into the fiscal fourth quarter and believe that the trend will continue into fiscal 2014."


Gross profit decreased to approximately $2,442,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013, compared to $3,369,000 or the same period in fiscal 2012. Gross profit as a percentage of revenue, however, increased to 76.3% for the three months ended March 31, 2013, from approximately 70.6% in the same period of 2012. The increase in gross profit percentage was the result of higher than average reimbursement from the mix of referrals during the three month period. Factors such as diagnoses that are not assured of reimbursement, insurance programs with lower allowable reimbursement amounts (for example, state Medicaid programs), and whether the patient meets prerequisite medical criteria for reimbursement, affect average reimbursement received on a short-term basis. These factors tend to fluctuate on a quarterly basis. During the quarter ended March 31, 2013, the Company continued to focus on cost efficiencies, which also contributed to the increase in gross profit percentage.

Operating expenses, which consist of selling, general, and administrative expenses and research and development expenses, were approximately $3,136,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013. Operating expenses remained relatively flat even with increases in staffing within the sales and reimbursement departments, as well as incurring additional professional fees. The Company was able to offset these increased costs by reducing certain operating expenses such as travel, meals and entertainment, marketing, advertising, and research and development.

Total cash and cash equivalents was approximately $505,000 as of March 31, 2013. For the three months ended March 31, 2013, net cash used in operating activities was approximately $212,000, composed primarily of a decrease in the Company's accounts receivable, which was offset by increases in inventory, prepaid expenses and other assets and accounts payable and accrued liabilities. An aggregate of $233,000 was used for investing activities during the three months ended March 31, 2013 for purchases of property and equipment and payment of trademark and patent costs. Cash used in financing activities was approximately $56,000, consisting of payments of line of credit, long-term debt and capital lease obligations. The Company believes it will be out of compliance with its existing debt covenants at June 30, 2013, and therefore has classified the term note, with a December 2014 maturity date as a current liability. The bank has waived all existing covenant violations as of May 13, 2013. The Company is working with the bank and believes it will be able to successfully modify the covenants in the current debt agreement in order to be in compliance as of June 30, 2013.

"Our focus is on controlling costs more aggressively in the short term while implementing key strategies for growth both domestically and internationally," noted Skarvan. "We are adapting quickly to the current economic and reimbursement environment by revising our processes and selling our product based on features and benefits that best serve our customers, with an emphasis on securing additional third-party payer contracts. By shifting to this strategy, we believe we will ultimately increase profitability."
