Electromed, Inc. Reports Fiscal Year 2013 Fourth Quarter and Year-End Results

NEW PRAGUE, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Electromed, Inc. (NYSE MKT: ELMD) today announced financial results for the 2013 fourth quarter and fiscal year, ended June 30, 2013.

Fourth Quarter Results
Net revenues for the fiscal 2013 fourth quarter were $4.0 million, compared with net revenues of $4.6 million for the same period last year. Net loss for the quarter was $416,000, or ($0.05) per basic and diluted share, compared to net loss of approximately $179,000, or $(0.02) per basic and diluted share, for the comparable fiscal 2012 period. Although the number of prescriptions for the Company's SmartVest® Airway Clearance System was relatively flat in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013, revenue was impacted negatively by reimbursement factors. The Company experienced a decrease in home care revenue primarily due to downward pressure on reimbursement as well as an increase in the length of time for reimbursement approval. The decrease in home care revenue was partially offset by an increase in international revenue of approximately $108,000 and an increase in government and institutional revenue of approximately $129,000.


Gross profit decreased to $2.7 million for the fiscal 2013 fourth quarter, or 66.5 percent of net revenue, compared to gross profit of $3.2 million, or 70.4 percent of net revenue, for the fiscal 2012 fourth quarter. The decrease in gross profit percentage was primarily the result of reduced leverage of manufacturing costs on lower revenue levels only partially offset by cost efficiencies implemented. The decrease in gross profit was also affected by factors such as diagnoses that are not assured of reimbursement and insurance programs with lower allowable reimbursement amounts (for example, state Medicaid programs), which affected average reimbursement received. These factors tend to fluctuate due to the appeals process.

Operating expenses, which consist of selling, general, and administrative expenses and research and development expenses, were $3.1 million for the fiscal 2013 fourth quarter, a decrease from $3.4 million in the prior-year period. The decrease in fiscal 2013 was primarily due to severance and certain other one-time expenses in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 of approximately $225,000 related to the retirement of a former officer.

"Although we were not satisfied with our 2013 fiscal fourth quarter revenue compared to a year ago, we were pleased that our revenue quarter over quarter increased by $820,000 due to improved capacity in our reimbursement team and progress on completing new contracts after one of our largest domestic third party payers decentralized its contracting process to over 50 affiliates," said Chief Executive Officer, Kathleen Skarvan.

"Additionally, we recently resolved lawsuits initiated on December 7, 2012 with a certain shareholder and with the former Chief Executive Officer," added Skarvan. "Putting this matter behind us is positive for our shareholders and we expect decreases in our legal fees in subsequent quarters."

Full-Year Results
Net revenues for fiscal 2013 totaled $15.1 million, compared to $19.5 million for the previous year. Net loss was $1.3 million, or ($0.16) per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $187,000, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share, in fiscal 2012. Our home care revenue decreased by 28.2 percent, or approximately $5,067,000, in fiscal 2013 compared to fiscal 2012. The decrease in revenue was primarily in home care and 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 compared to the prior year. Additionally, one of the largest domestic third party payers has decentralized its contracting process. The decentralization has required additional time to complete the necessary reimbursement contracts with individual affiliates to maintain our national coverage with that payer. Certain contracts have been resolved during the year, although the final completion of this process will extend into fiscal year 2014. The decrease in home care revenue was partially offset by an increase in international revenue of approximately $235,000 and an increase in government and institutional revenue of approximately $412,000.

Gross profit decreased to $10.5 million for the 2013 fiscal year, or 69.2 percent of net revenue, compared to gross profit of $14.1 million, or 72.5 percent of net revenue, for fiscal 2012.

Operating expenses, which consist of selling, general, and administrative expenses and research and development expenses, were $12.3 million for fiscal 2013, a decrease of 9.3 percent over operating expenses in the prior year.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Overview
Total cash and cash equivalents were $504,000 as of June 30, 2013, compared to total cash and cash equivalents of approximately $1.7 million at the same time last year. For the year ended June 30, 2013, cash used in financing activities was approximately $2,022,000, consisting primarily of payments on our line of credit and principal payments on long-term debt and capital lease obligations. Electromed's operating activities provided approximately $1.9 million of cash during fiscal 2013. This was driven primarily by improvements in cash collections and inventory management which decreased the Company's accounts receivable and inventory by $1.8 million and $1.0 million, respectively. In addition to existing cash and cash equivalents, the Company had $2.3 million unused and available under its line of credit as of June 30, 2013.

"We are making good progress toward returning Electromed to historical profitability in the coming quarters despite continued downward pressure on reimbursement rates and the length of time for reimbursement approval," Skarvan said. "We are particularly pleased with the improvement in the quality of patient referrals, and results indicating that our referral to approval ratio is trending positively."

"While fiscal 2013 international and institutional/government sales increased 40 percent, this increase did not overcome the decrease in home care revenue," added Skarvan. "Despite the lower sales our cash position is strong with over $500,000 in cash and $2.25 million available on our line of credit. This provides us the funds to implement key initiatives for growth. We believe we have made great progress positioning the Company to take advantage of future growth opportunities providing airway clearance technologies that help people around the world breathe better and lead active and fulfilling lives. We achieve this through innovative products, as well as patient advocacy and care with our patient-first commitment."
