Electromed, Inc. Reports FY2013 First Quarter Results

NEW PRAGUE, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Electromed, Inc. (NYSE MKT: ELMD) today announced financial results for the three-month period ended September 30, 2012. Net revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2012 were approximately $4,031,000, a 25.1% decrease compared to net revenues of approximately $5,379,000 for the same period last year. The Company also announced a net loss of approximately $71,000, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share, for the three months ended September 30, 2012, compared to net income of approximately $246,000, or $0.03 per basic and diluted share, for the same period last year. Net revenues decreased in correlation with turnover in the sales force and a decrease in the number of Clinical Area Managers (CAMs) with over one year of experience, as well as lower referral counts. Net loss results were attributable to lower net revenues, offset by decreased expenses related to decreases in sales force and operating efficiencies designed to better align expenses with demand.

Gross profit decreased to approximately $2,821,000, or 70.0% of net revenues, for the three months ended September 30, 2012, compared to $4,069,000, or 75.6% of net revenues, for the same period in Fiscal 2012. The decrease in gross profit dollars resulted primarily from the decrease in sales volume. The change in gross profit percentage for the three-month period ended September 30, 2012 was primarily the result of lower than average reimbursement from the Company's mix of referrals compared to the three-month period ended September 30, 2011. Factors such as diagnoses that are not assured of reimbursement and insurance programs with lower allowable reimbursement amounts (for example, state Medicaid programs) affect average reimbursement received on a short-term basis. These factors tend to cause margins to fluctuate on a quarterly basis. However, management does not believe the results of the quarter ended September 30, 2012 are indicative of a long-term decrease in margins.

Operating expenses, which consist of selling, general, and administrative expenses and research and development expenses, were approximately $2,917,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2012, a decrease of approximately 17.2% over total operating expenses for the same period last year. The decrease primarily resulted from lower sales volume and lower associated selling and patient training costs; decreased payroll as a result of lower commissions and lower overall management compensation; and a reduction in marketing fees. Lower research and development expenses were due primarily to discontinuing the use of a certain outside vendor.

Total cash and cash equivalents were approximately $1,483,000 as of September 30, 2012. For the three months ended September 30, 2012, cash used in financing activities was approximately $110,000, consisting of payments on long-term debt and capital lease obligations. An aggregate of $224,000 was used for investing activities during the three months ended September 30, 2012, including $27,000 in payments for patent-related costs and $197,000 in expenditures for property and equipment. Net cash provided by operating activities was approximately $114,000, composed primarily of a decrease in the Company's receivable position of approximately $435,000, or 4.0%, to approximately $10,400,000 during the three months ended September 30, 2012. The change in total cash position was a decrease of approximately $220,000, as compared to a decrease of $1,146,000 during the same period in calendar year 2011.

Jim Cassidy, Ph.D., Electromed's Interim CEO, said "We continued to experience turnover in our sales force during the first quarter. Midway through the quarter we added to the strength of our management team by hiring a new Director of Sales. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, we realigned sales territories and instituted a new compensation plan designed to drive future sales growth. We saw significant improvement in sales performance in October that we attribute to those changes. We also brought marketing functions in-house at considerable savings and sought operating efficiencies throughout our organization to bring expenses in line with demand. These efforts are ongoing and are expected to contribute to improvements in profitability in the future."
