MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 20, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Urologix®, Inc. (OTCQB:ULGX), the leading provider of in-office procedures for the safe, durable and effective treatment of BPH, today reported financial results for its fiscal year fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2013.

Fourth quarter fiscal year 2013 revenue totaled $4.2 million, up 2.5% sequentially from the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 and down 7.0% compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012. The sequential increase in revenue was driven by low single-digit growth in sales for both product lines, Cooled ThermoTherapyTM (CTT) and Prostiva® Radio Frequency (RF) Therapy. The year-over-year decline in revenue was driven by a low single-digit decline in sales of CTT and low double-digit declines in sales of Prostiva compared to the prior year.

"We are pleased at achieving our guidance for FY2013 and generating sequential growth in the fourth quarter. We believe these results reflect both the impact of our market development initiatives and continuing improvement in our execution," stated Greg Fluet, Chief Executive Officer. "Our fiscal year 2014 guidance reflects both our confidence in the continued contributions to growth from execution of our sales and marketing strategy, heavily focused on patient education, as well as the recognition of the challenging healthcare environment. We enter the new fiscal year with certainty on our cash obligations reflected in the balance sheet, a strong product portfolio of leading in-office therapies for the treatment of BPH, a compelling market development program and a strong team focused on achieving improved operating performance."

As of June 30, 2013, the Company's cash balance was $2.3 million compared to $5.1 million as of March 31, 2013. This amount includes the impact from the $2.0 million payment to Medtronic which was made on June 28th, 2013 upon the signing of the restructuring agreement. Outside of the restructuring payment, the cash balances decreased $807,000 compared to March 31, 2013. The Company has an existing $2 million line of credit currently in place with Silicon Valley Bank, which has not yet been drawn upon.

On a full year basis, the Company's cash balance increased $391,000 compared to June 30, 2012. The change in the cash balance over the fiscal year was impacted by the following items: (i) increased $3.8 million from a common stock offering on July 5, 2012; (ii) decreased due to the cash payment of $2.0 million paid as part of the Prostiva restructuring, though this was offset by the deferral of $2.0 million of payments due earlier in the year as part of the license agreement and for deferred inventory payments and; (iii) the receipt of $321,000 in January 2013 from the demutualization of an insurer. Net of these items, the Company utilized $3.7 million in cash during fiscal year 2013.

Gross profit for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013 was $1.9 million, or 45.5% of revenue, compared to $2.3 million, or 50.6% of revenue, in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012. Fourth quarter fiscal year 2013 cost of goods sold included an impairment charge of $274,000 related to a revaluation of intangible assets acquired with the Prostiva product line. Excluding the impairment charge, fourth quarter fiscal year 2013 non-GAAP gross margin was 52.1%. The improvement in gross margin, excluding the impairment charge, was driven primarily by a reduction in manufacturing costs and mobile expenses.

Total operating expense was $3.2 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013, down 5.3% year-over-year. Total operating expenses in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013 included an impairment charge of $160,000 related to a revaluation of intangible assets acquired with the Prostiva product line. Excluding this impairment charge and the gain on the change in value of acquisition consideration in both the current quarter and the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012, operating expense declined 12.2% compared to the prior year. The decrease in total operating expense, excluding the impairment charge and gains on acquisition consideration, was driven by a decline of $399,000 in General & Administrative expense related to a shift in accreted interest expense to the interest expense line as a result of the restructuring of Medtronic liabilities in the period as well as a reduction in Sales & Marketing and Research & Development expenses of $96,000.

For the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013, Urologix reported a net loss of $1.2 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1.2 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012. The net loss in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013 was impacted, on a pre-tax basis, by an impairment charge of $434,000 on long-lived assets, a $206,000 gain on debt extinguishment and $65,000 paid for the medical device tax.

For the fiscal year 2013 period ended June 30, 2013, revenues totaled $16.6 million, down 2.6% compared to revenues of $17.0 million in fiscal year 2012. The year-over-year decline in revenue was driven by a mid-single-digit decline in sales of Cooled ThermoTherapyTM (CTT) products and a mid-single-digit increase in sales of Prostiva® Radio Frequency (RF) Therapy products. Prostiva growth benefitted from the inclusion of a full year of sales in fiscal year 2013 compared to approximately ten months of sales contribution following the Company's license acquisition in fiscal year 2012.

Gross profit for fiscal year 2013 was $8.2 million, or 49.3% of sales. Excluding the impairment charge of $274,000 in the fourth quarter, fiscal year 2013 non-GAAP gross margin was 51.0%. Total operating expense of $12.1 million for fiscal year 2013 declined 3.4% year-over-year compared to $12.5 million in fiscal year 2012. Excluding the changes in the value of acquisition consideration in both periods, the gain on demutualization and impairment charges in fiscal year 2013, total operating expenses were flat year-over-year. The Company reported a net loss of $4.3 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, for fiscal year 2013, compared to a net loss of $4.7 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, in the prior fiscal year period.

Outlook

The Company is introducing a fiscal year 2014 total revenue guidance range of $15 million to $17 million.

Notes to Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measure to GAAP

Management believes non-GAAP financial information provides meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's financial performance by excluding the impairment charge to developed technology intangible asset in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013. Management believes this impairment charge is a non-recurring item that is not indicative of the operating results of the business. Urologix believes that this additional financial information is useful to management and investors in assessing the Company's historical and future performance.
