  • In July 2013, we were notified by a customer that it would discontinue purchasing our wound closure products during the second half of this year. The loss of this customer is a result of increased pricing competition. Sales to this customer were $1.8 million in the first half of 2013.
  • Restructuring activities related to the closing of our Galt Medical facility in Texas continued, with an estimated completion date of December 2014.
    • The Galt Medical brand represents a growth platform business for us in which we intend to continue to invest and expand product offerings.

    • We expect to incur incremental expenses totaling $3.7 million to $4.1 million (including expenses incurred through June 30, 2013) through 2014 to complete this restructuring. These incremental costs, expected to be recorded over the restructuring period through December 2014, primarily include severance related expenses and project implementation costs. No significant non-cash charges are expected to be recorded related to this restructuring.
    • Capital expenditures related to restructuring are expected to be $2.5 million to $2.7 million through 2014.
    • Upon completion of the restructuring, net cost reductions are expected to be $3.3 million to $3.6 million annually.

Segment Results

  • Surgical products
    • Revenue of $14.7 million in Q2 2013, down 8% from Q2 2012 and $29.2 million in the first half of 2013, down 7% from 2012.
    • Loss from operations of $31,000 in Q2 2013 compared to operating income of $588,000 in Q2 2012. Loss from operations of $366,000 in the first half of 2013 compared to operating income of $787,000 in 2012.
    • Excluding special items, operating income was $473,000 in Q2 2013 and $231,000 in the first half of 2013.
  • Brachytherapy
    • Revenue of $6.0 million in Q2 2013, down 5% from Q2 2012 and $11.7 million for the first half of 2013, down 7% from 2012.
      • During the second quarter of 2013, a competitor in the brachytherapy industry voluntarily withdrew their brachytherapy products from the market following receipt of a warning letter from the FDA. We believe we realized incremental sales of approximately $200,000 as a result of this product withdrawal. We cannot predict if or when this competitor may return to the market and, if they do, whether we will be able to retain this incremental revenue.
    • Operating income of $874,000 in Q2 2013 compared to $747,000 in Q2 2012 and $1.3 million in the first half of 2013 compared to $2.1 million in 2012.


"2013 is shaping up to be a year of disruptions, challenges and potential," stated M. Christine Jacobs, Chairman and CEO. "Our second quarter operating income, excluding special items, was flat compared to 2012. We had slight improvement in gross margins in our surgical business. Lastly, our brachytherapy business benefited from our 2012 agreements and one of our competitors stumbled with regulatory sanctions that added revenue for us."

"Restructuring activities related to our off shore outsourcing program and closing of the Galt facility in Texas commenced," Ms. Jacobs continued. "Once complete, we expect these strategic activities to significantly reduce our costs and assist us in remaining competitive in a dynamic medical device environment. The Galt brand remains integral to our long term surgical products platform. We intend to support and expand our Galt offerings and to continue to support our Galt customers."

"On August 5, 2013 we announced that we have signed a definitive merger agreement under which a newly formed affiliate of Juniper Investment Company, LLC will acquire all of our outstanding common stock," stated Ms. Jacobs. "Transaction costs associated with this pending transaction materially affected our results for the quarter."

Ms. Jacobs concluded, "Continued industry volatility makes for a challenging environment for our small company. While growth in the short term remains a challenge, we are committed to our plans of cost reduction, outsourcing, and brachy market share accumulation. The device sector and our customers are adjusting to new norms under healthcare reform and so are we."

This press release contains disclosure of non-GAAP financial measures, including: operating income excluding special items, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and share-based compensation (which we refer to as "Adjusted EBITDA"), and Adjusted EBITDA excluding special items. We believe these non-GAAP measures are useful in helping investors understand our results on a comparable basis between periods and in providing additional and meaningful assessment of our ongoing results and performance. Because we have historically reported what we currently refer to as Adjusted EBITDA, we also believe that the inclusion of this non-GAAP measure provides consistency in our financial reporting and facilitates investors' understanding of our historical operating trends by providing an additional basis for comparisons to prior periods. In addition to measures such as net earnings (loss) and operating income as calculated and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), we utilize Adjusted EBITDA, among other things, 1) to establish financial and operational goals; 2) to monitor our actual performance in relation to our business plan and operating budgets; 3) to understand key trends; 4) to make operational decisions and allocate resources; and 5) as part of several components we consider in determining incentive compensation. We believe presentation of these non-GAAP measures provides supplemental information that is helpful in understanding the operating results of our businesses and period-to-period comparisons of performance. However, we recognize that the use of non-GAAP measures has limitations, including the fact that they may not be directly comparable with similar non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. We compensate for these limitations by providing reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. All non-GAAP financial measures are intended to supplement the applicable GAAP disclosures and should not be considered in isolation from, or as substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. For a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures from GAAP reported amounts, please refer to Tables IV and V to this press release.

From time to time we may make other forward-looking statements relating to other matters, including without limitation, research and development plans, investments in our surgical products and brachytherapy businesses and capital expenditures. Actual results may differ materially due to a variety of factors, including, among other things, uncertainties related to the timing, savings, capital expenditures, expenses and other factors related to the restructuring of our vascular access manufacturing operations, the integration of acquired companies and assets into our organization, the timing and the ability to capitalize on opportunities for investment and growth within our surgical products business, ability to recognize value from areas of shared expertise, risks and uncertainties related to competition within the medical device industry, development and growth of new applications within the markets for wound closure, vascular access, specialty needle, brachytherapy and, more broadly, medical devices, competition from other companies within the wound closure, vascular access, specialty needle, brachytherapy and medical device markets, competition from other methods of treatment, new product development cycles (pipeline), effectiveness and execution of marketing and sales programs, changes in product pricing, changes in costs of materials used in production processes, changes in the ordering patterns of our customers, continued acceptance of and demand for our products by the markets in which we operate, introduction and/or availability of competitive products by others, potential changes in third-party reimbursement, including Medicare reimbursement as administered by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), implementation of new legislation by CMS, physician training, third-party distribution agreements, ability to execute acquisition opportunities on favorable terms and successfully integrate any acquisitions, potential changes in applicable tax rates, legislative changes to healthcare markets and industries such as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act (including provisions such as the medical device tax which took effect January 1, 2013), uncertainties related to the credit and investment markets and other factors set forth from time to time in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
