FARMINGDALE, N.Y., May 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Misonix, Inc.

Stavros Vizirgianakis, President and Chief Executive Officer of Misonix stated, “We are pleased with the ongoing momentum across our wound and surgical businesses in the fiscal third quarter and with the direction in which we are headed. Excluding non-recurring license fee revenue, product revenue growth in excess of 21% for the first nine months of fiscal 2019 is pacing in line with our prior guidance and we continue to maintain a healthy gross margin on product sales of approximately 70%. The impact of the success of our strategies regarding our go-to-market, operations and logistics, new product development, geographic market penetration and resource utilization initiatives is once again evidenced in our results and in the progress we are making towards positioning Misonix for sustainable growth.

“Robust consumables and equipment sales resulted in product revenue growth of over 13% for the third quarter, when excluding $4.0 million in license fee revenue from our Chinese partner recorded in the comparable prior year period. The overall financial benefits of our initiatives focused on shifting our sales mix toward higher margin products are becoming more visible as reflected by the 17% year-over-year increase in third quarter consumables revenue, including domestic and international consumables sales growth of 12% and 29%, respectively. While third quarter domestic equipment sales were challenged, as was expected given the introduction of Nexus later this year, international equipment sales continued to grow at over 10% versus the prior year period.

“During the third quarter, we made further progress in bringing Nexus, our new ultrasonic surgical platform, to market on the back of its unveiling at the NASS Conference, and we expect that we will be able to begin booking sales in mid-2019, subject to FDA approval of our 510(k) application. We believe Nexus holds great potential serving as an additional growth engine and opening cross-selling opportunities and broadening our range of procedures by presenting surgeons with a powerful tool to remove hard and soft tissue with greater control, accuracy and efficiency.

“Last week we announced the acquisition of Solsys Medical in an all-stock transaction that squarely meets our criteria in terms of advancing Misonix’s goals for growth and the enhancement of shareholder value. This merger creates a platform enterprise with meaningful revenue scale and commercial reach. The combined entity will have dedicated wound and surgical sales forces with over 130 resources and is expected to generate pro-forma annual revenues in excess of $80 million in the first year following the completion of the transaction. This transformative transaction is consistent with our prior messaging and furthers our commitment to provide a compelling value proposition to healthcare practitioners and patients by offering innovative and highly complementary products and solutions, which we are confident, will translate to strong financial results for our shareholders. Upon closing, we look forward to leveraging the momentum Solsys Medical has in key markets across wound care and the additional options TheraSkin provides to address complex wounds.

“We reiterate our guidance for product revenue growth of 20% for full fiscal year 2019, and for gross profit margins of 70%. Going forward, we believe that the direction we are headed in will enable us to meet our goal of enhancing long-term shareholder value as we move through the balance of fiscal 2019 and beyond.”

Joe Dwyer, Chief Financial Officer, added, “Our fiscal 2019 third quarter results marked another period of strong product revenue growth for Misonix, while showcasing our ability to maintain a healthy gross profit margin, balance sheet and liquidity position.

“The initiatives we implemented during the first half of the year began to take hold in the fiscal third quarter and are helping us to eliminate inefficiencies across our enterprise-wide operations allowing us to successfully and efficiently meet the increasing demand, particularly in our consumables, and to best position us to fully maximize the potential of our next generation of ultrasonic products. In addition, we are already working with our operating teams to develop a comprehensive integration plan that will ensure a smooth transition of Solsys Medical onto our platform, which will enable us to more quickly realize the value of this compelling combination for our patients and our shareholders.

“Looking ahead, we have the capital flexibility we need on the back of the Solsys Medical acquisition to continue to support and invest in our products and in our people, and to diligently and effectively pursue new opportunities.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company has presented the following non-GAAP financial measures in this press release: EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. The Company defines EBITDA as the net income (loss) as reported under GAAP, plus depreciation and amortization expense, interest expense and income tax expense (benefit). The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA plus non-cash stock compensation expense and engineering costs associated with its development of Nexus, its next generation platform, which will not be a recurring cost when the project is completed in the second half of fiscal 2019.

We present these non-GAAP measures because we believe these measures are useful indicators of our operating performance. Our management uses these non-GAAP measures principally as a measure of our operating performance and believes that these measures are useful to investors because they are frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate the operating performance of companies in our industry. We also believe that these measures are useful to our management and investors as a measure of comparative operating performance from period to period.
