First Quarter Fiscal 2015 Financial Results
Total revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2016, ended September 30, 2015, increased 16% to $5.3 million versus $4.5 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2015. The increase was primarily attributable to a 30% increase in BoneScalpel revenue to $2.9 million, a 43% increase in SonicOne revenue to $859,000 and a 7% decrease in SonaStar revenue to $1.4 million.

There were 53 BoneScalpel units sold or consigned worldwide during first quarter fiscal 2016 compared to 56 BoneScalpel units sold or consigned during the first quarter of fiscal 2015. BoneScalpel disposable sales in the United States increased 96% to $1.6 million during first quarter fiscal 2016 compared to the same period in fiscal 2015. SonicOne OR disposables increased 93% to $629,000 for the first quarter of fiscal 2016. There were 15 SonaStar units sold worldwide during the first quarter of fiscal 2016 compared to 20 SonaStar units sold during the first quarter of fiscal 2015.

Gross profit for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 increased to 66.3% compared to 65.1% for the comparable quarter in fiscal 2015. The increase is primarily related higher sales volume, as well as a favorable product mix of higher margin product deliveries.

During the quarter, the Company received royalty and licensing payments totaling $988,000.

Selling expenses for the first fiscal quarter of 2016 increased to $2.6 million versus $2.0 million for the comparable quarter of the previous fiscal year. The increase is due predominantly to higher head count, higher sales commissions, higher travel expenses and higher depreciation expenses due to the increase in the total number of BoneScalpel units consigned.

General and administrative expenses increased to $1.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 from $1.2 million for the comparable year ago quarter. The increase is due predominantly to higher accounting expenses as Misonix is an accelerated filer, and higher non-cash compensation expenses due to the issuance of stock options. Research and development expenses for the quarter were $393,000 compared to $438,000 for the first quarter of fiscal 2015. 

The Company reported a net loss of $(220,000), or $(0.03) loss per diluted share, for first quarter fiscal 2016 compared to net income of $383,000, or $0.05 earnings per diluted share, for the same period in fiscal 2015.

Michael A. McManus Jr., President and CEO stated, "We are off to a strong start in fiscal 2016 with net sales increasing 16%, primarily driven by strong double-digit increases in our BoneScalpel and SonicOne product lines. Our razor/razorblade model continues to deliver excellent results as our recurring revenue component for the first quarter increased 49% versus last year's comparable quarter, and accounted for 69% of total first quarter revenue. BoneScalpel recurring revenue increased 78% and SonicOne OR recurring revenue increased 93%. We are very pleased with the consistent performance of our sales, marketing and distribution teams.

"You will notice a different look for your Company as well with the adoption of new branding with the commitment that 'Better Matters.'  The new branding is intended to reflect the energy and excitement of our introduction of our MIS platform, the training launch of our new HIFU aspirator and our new products and increased support to the wound and burn market in the operating room."

Mr. McManus concluded, "At the conclusion of the first quarter of fiscal 2016 the financial condition of the Company is strong. We now have a cash position in excess of $9.7 million, and we carry no long-term debt. As our surgical instruments continue to gain market acceptance, surgeons and medical institutions throughout the world increasingly recognize their compelling safety profiles - less blood loss, less bone fragmentation, the sparing of soft tissue and reduction in overall time required to complete surgical procedures. We look to the future with great anticipation."
