AngioDynamics Reports Fiscal 2019 Second Quarter Financial Results

January 4, 2019

LATHAM, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 4, 2019--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 second quarter of fiscal year 2019, which ended November 30, 2018.

“We are very pleased with our second quarter financial results, which are marked by growth across all of our business segments, expanding gross margins, and improved profitability. Our quarterly performance was positively impacted by our recent acquisitions, validating our portfolio optimization strategy and enhancing our value proposition within oncology. In addition, we continue to make progress toward obtaining a pancreatic cancer indication for NanoKnife and recently received notification from the FDA that NanoKnife will be considered a Category B IDE once we receive approval to begin our DIRECT tm NanoKnife study for Stage III pancreatic cancer,” commented Jim Clemmer, President and Chief Executive Officer of AngioDynamics, Inc. “We are encouraged by these accomplishments and are well positioned to achieve our financial targets for the full year.”

Second Quarter 2019 Financial Results

Net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2019 were $91.5 million, an increase of 5.5%, compared to $86.7 million a year ago. During the quarter, each of the Company’s three businesses posted growth, led by the Oncology business.

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

Oncology net sales were $15.3 million, an increase of 19.8% from $12.8 million a year ago, as strong NanoKnife sales in both capital and disposables and positive contributions from the two recent acquisitions more than offset decreased sales of the Company’s Thermal Ablation 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 ablation 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 28.7% year over year. Vascular Interventions and Therapies net sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 were $52.5 million, an increase of 2.2%, compared to $51.4 million a year ago, as strong growth in Fluid Management and AngioVac were partially offset by a decelerating decline in the Venous Insufficiency business. Vascular Access net sales were $23.7 million, an increase of 5.1% from $22.6 million a year ago, as strong sales of Ports and Dialysis products were slightly offset by a decline in sales of PICCs.

U.S. net sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 were $71.9 million, an increase of 5.2% from $68.3 million a year ago, and International net sales were $19.6 million, an increase of 6.6% from $18.4 million a year ago.

Gross margin for the second quarter of fiscal 2019 expanded 440 basis points to 53.7% from 49.3% a year ago, consistent with the trending improvements related to the Company’s core operational enhancements, as well as higher gross margins associated with our portfolio optimization strategy.

The Company recorded net income of $2.1 million, or $0.06 per share, in the second quarter of fiscal 2019. This compares to net income of approximately $0.2 million, or $0.01 per share, a year ago.

Excluding the items shown in the non-GAAP reconciliation table below, adjusted net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2019 was $8.4 million, or $0.22 per share, compared to adjusted net income of $6.3 million, or $0.17 per share, in the second quarter of fiscal 2018.

Adjusted EBITDAS in the second quarter of fiscal 2019, excluding the items shown in the reconciliation table below, was $16.3 million, compared to $13.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2018.

In the second quarter of fiscal 2019, the Company generated $13.0 million in operating cash flow and had capital expenditures of $0.7 million. As of November 30, 2018, the Company had $42.8 million in cash and cash equivalents and $145.0 million in debt, excluding the impact of deferred financing costs.

Six Months Financial Results

For the six months ended November 30, 2018:

Net sales were $176.8 million, an increase of 2.7%, compared to $172.1 million for the same period a year ago. The Company’s net income was $1.7 million, or $0.04 per share, compared to net income of $0.2 million, or $0.01 per share, a year ago. Excluding the items shown in the non-GAAP reconciliation table below, adjusted net income was $14.6 million, or $0.38 per share, compared to adjusted net income of $11.3 million, or $0.30 per share, a year ago. Adjusted EBITDAS, excluding the items shown in the reconciliation table below, was $28.9 million, compared to $24.6 million for the same period a year ago.
