| Source: Novadaq Technologies Inc.

TORONTO, Aug. 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Novadaq® Technologies Inc. ("NOVADAQ" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:NVDQ) (TSX:NDQ), the leading developer and provider of clinically relevant imaging solutions for use in surgical and diagnostic procedures, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2014. Unless otherwise indicated, all dollar amounts in this press release are expressed in United States ("U.S.") dollars.

NOVADAQ reported second quarter 2014 revenues of $11.2 million, compared to $8.1 million in the second quarter of 2013, representing an increase of 38%. NOVADAQ's strategy of investing in a direct sales team resulted in $5.1 million in PINPOINT® and LUNA® sales compared to $1.2 million in the second quarter of last year. During the second quarter, royalty revenues were recognized only from da Vinci® Si systems, while royalty revenues from the new da Vinci Xi systems are delayed until U.S. Food and Drug Administration clearance is received.

NOVADAQ estimates that procedures performed using SPY® technology systems during the quarter was 7,400, representing an increase of 39%, year-over-year and an increase of 13% over the previous quarter. The increase was mainly driven by PINPOINT, LUNA and FIREFLY™.

Second quarter gross profits of $6.9 million (62% margin), represented an increase of 37% compared to profits of $5.1 million (62% margin) in the same period last year.

Net income of $6.3 million for the second quarter of 2014 increased by $16.0 million compared with the $9.7 million net loss in second quarter of 2013. Second quarter 2014 earnings per share were $0.11, excluding the impact of a non-cash $10.8 million warrants revaluation gain in the period, the loss per share was $0.08.

Second quarter 2014 operating burn (cash consumed by operating activities before changes in working capital) was $1.5 million compared to an operating burn of $0.6 million in the second quarter of 2013. This difference in operating burn was mainly driven by increased sales and distribution expenses associated with the build-out of NOVADAQ's direct sales and marketing infrastructure. During the period, working capital consumed was $5.7 million, and $1.8 million was invested in fixed assets, including $1.7 million used to build SPY technology systems for evaluation and placement. The Company also utilized $6.7 million in cash, inclusive of transaction costs, to complete the acquisition of Aïmago SA business.

Cash and cash equivalents were $162.1 million at June 30, 2014, reflecting a decrease of $15.1 million, compared to the cash position as at March 31, 2014.

During the second quarter, 129 SPY technology systems, including FIREFLY, were shipped globally. Included in those shipments were sales of 47 PINPOINT, LUNA and SPY systems. Exiting the quarter, more than 100 PINPOINT and LUNA systems were installed as evaluation units.

"The second quarter marks a milestone for us, as approximately half of our revenues were generated from direct sales," commented Dr. Arun Menawat, NOVADAQ President and CEO. "In line with the clinical value proposition of our products, we are announcing the initiation of two multi-center studies using PINPOINT: PILLARTM III, focused on lower anterior colon resection and the FILMTM study for lymphatic mapping in gynecological oncology."
