September 27, 2018

LATHAM, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 27, 2018--AngioDynamics, Inc. (NASDAQ:ANGO), a leading provider of innovative, minimally invasive medical devices for vascular access, peripheral vascular disease, and oncology, today announced financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2019, which ended August 31, 2018.

“Our operating and financial accomplishments during the first quarter reflect our ongoing commitment to building a more cohesive, patient-focused product portfolio. As evidenced by our two recent acquisitions, we are making progress on our portfolio optimization efforts with a focus on the continuum of care within oncology, as well as on disruptive and differentiated technologies,” commented Jim Clemmer, President and Chief Executive Officer of AngioDynamics, Inc. “Our first quarter results give us continued confidence in meeting our financial goals for fiscal 2019.”

First Quarter 2019 Financial Results

Net sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 were $85.3 million, compared to $85.4 million a year ago. During the quarter, growth in the Company’s Vascular Access business was offset by declines in its Oncology business, while Vascular Interventions and Therapies (VIT) sales were flat.

Currency did not have a significant impact on the Company’s sales in the quarter.

Oncology net sales were $11.6 million, a decrease of 6.1% from $12.3 million a year ago, as NanoKnife disposable growth was more than offset by decreases in sales of Radiofrequency Ablation and timing effects of Microwave products. The comparison of year-over-year results within the Company’s Oncology business was negatively impacted by the timing of the prior-year Acculis Microwave abalation system market withdrawal. Excluding the impact of this transition from the Company’s Acculis Microwave product to its Solero Microwave product, the Oncology business grew 7.5% year over year. VIT net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2019 were $50.0 million, compared to $49.9 million a year ago, as growth in Fluid Management, Angiographic Catheters, and AngioVac was offset by declines in the Venous Insufficiency business. Vascular Access net sales were $23.8 million, an increase of 2.4% from $23.2 million a year ago, as growth in Ports, Dialysis, and Midline products was partially offset by a decline in sales of PICCs.

U.S. net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2019 were $67.7 million, a decrease of 1.8% from $68.9 million a year ago, and International net sales were $17.7 million, an increase of 7.1% from $16.5 million a year ago.

Gross margin for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 expanded 380 basis points to 52.1% from 48.3% a year ago, largely as a result of ongoing operational improvements, the recently completed facility consolidation, and the expiration of a royalty arrangement in the second quarter of fiscal 2018.

The Company recorded a net loss of $0.5 million, or $(0.01) per share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2019. This compares to a net loss of less than $100,000, or $0.00 per share, a year ago.

Excluding the items shown in the non-GAAP reconciliation table below, adjusted net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 was $6.2 million, or $0.16 per share, compared to adjusted net income of $5.0 million, or $0.13 per share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2018.

Adjusted EBITDAS in the first quarter of fiscal 2019, excluding the items shown in the reconciliation table below, was $12.6 million, compared to $11.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2018.

In the first quarter of fiscal 2019, the Company used $8.9 million in operating cash flow and had capital expenditures of $0.7 million. As of August 31, 2018, the Company had $24.8 million in cash and cash equivalents and $91.3 million in debt, excluding the impact of deferred financing costs.

Fiscal Year 2019 Financial Guidance

The Company is updating its previously announced financial guidance to reflect the BioSentry and RadiaDyne acquisitions, as well as the payment made to the DOJ for previously disclosed legal matters. The Company now expects fiscal year 2019 net sales in the range of $354 to $359 million and free cash flow in the range of $26 to $31 million. Additionally, the Company continues to expect its adjusted earnings per share in the range of $0.82 to $0.86.
