COTTONWOOD HEIGHTS, UT / ACCESSWIRE / February 13, 2019 / Dynatronics Corporation (DYNT), a leading provider of physical therapy, rehabilitation, and athletic training products, today announced financial results for its second quarter of fiscal year 2019.
Net sales for the quarter decreased $2.6 million, or 14.6 percent, to $15.4 million, compared to $18.1 million in the same period of the prior year. Gross profit for the quarter decreased $1.1 million, or 18.9 percent, to $4.7 million. The lower revenue and gross profit are reflective of general softness in demand in our direct sales channel, transitions in our sales force, and our product rationalization strategy. Gross margin for the quarter was 30.3 percent, compared to 31.9 percent in the same period of the prior year. The lower gross margin was driven by a larger portion of our products sold through our third-party distribution partners, as we have experienced lower direct sales and eliminated several unproductive or unprofitable direct sales territories.
"Our management team is steering our business through a transformative period," said Dr. Christopher R. von Jako, CEO of Dynatronics Corporation. "Targeted reductions in personnel, product rationalizations, and other margin improvement projects are designed to improve profit and cash flow longer term in each of our channels."
Net loss for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 was approximately $441,000, compared to a net income of $14,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2017. The decrease in net income includes a non-cash income tax provision of $204,000 related to a temporary book to tax difference associated with the amortization of goodwill for tax purposes.
Net loss applicable to common stockholders for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 was approximately $644,000 compared to a loss of $1.3 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2017. The improvement in net loss attributable to common stockholders is primarily due to a $1.0 million reduction in deemed dividends associated with the issuance of preferred stock and warrants, and a reduction of $102,000 in preferred stock dividends.
"We continue to generate positive operating cash flow and to make meaningful changes to ensure we have the right product portfolio with the right teams in place to lead Dynatronics into the future," explained Dr. von Jako. "We continue our commitment to partnering with our customers by providing restorative products to realize our shared vision of improving the lives of patients."
