Earnings Reviewed

For the first quarter of the fiscal year 2018 ended August 31, 2017, AngioDynamics reported net sales of $85.4 million, down 3% compared to $88.1 million in Q1 FY17, primarily related to its Core/Angiographic Catheter business. During the year-ago same period, the Company had observed a $4.0 million increase in sales as a result of the inventory build by its customers related to a competitor product recall. AngioDynamics' reported numbers fell short of analysts' expectation of $86.1 million.

During Q1 FY18, AngioDynamics' gross margins were 48.3% compared to 51.1% in Q1 FY17. The decline in gross margin is primarily driven by a recall and voluntary market withdrawal of the Acculis Microwave Tissue Ablation System which was initiated in Q4 FY17. AngioDynamics' adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) was $10.6 million in the reported quarter compared to $14.2 million in the prior year's same quarter.

AngioDynamics recorded a net loss of $35,000, or $0.00 on a per share basis, in Q1 FY18 compared to net income of $1.3 million, or $0.04 on a per share basis, in Q1 FY17. The Company's adjusted net income was $4.6 million, or $0.12 per share, for the reported quarter compared to an adjusted net income of $6.4 million, or $0.17 per share, in the prior year's corresponding quarter. AngioDynamics' earnings numbers lagged behind Wall Street's expectations of $0.16 per share.

Segment Results

During Q1 FY18, AngioDynamics' Peripheral Vascular's net sales were $49.9 million, down from $52.0 million in Q1 FY17 because of declines in the Venous and Core businesses, offset by growth in Fluid Management and Thrombus Management.

The Company's Vascular Access' net sales were $23.2 million in the reported quarter, down from $25.0 million in the year-earlier comparable quarter as a result of declines of non-BioFlo products, offset by growth in the BioFlo family of products. For Q1 FY18, the Oncology/Surgery's net sales totaled $12.3 million, up from $11.1 million in Q1 FY17, primarily due to sales related to the recently launched Solero Microwave Tissue Ablation System.

AngioDynamics' overall US net sales in Q1 FY18 were $68.9 million, down compared to net sales of $72.2 million in Q1 FY17, due to declines in Venous and Core businesses, offset by growth in the Oncology portfolio. The Company's overall International net sales were $16.5 million in the reported quarter, up from $15.9 million in the year-ago same period due to increased sales across the Oncology/Surgery business.

Cash Matters

In Q1 FY18, AngioDynamics generated $3.0 million in operating cash flow and $2.5 million in free cash flow. As of August 31, 2017, the Company's cash and cash equivalents were $48.2 million and debt was $96.3 million.

Financial Guidance

AngioDynamics reaffirmed its FY18 financial guidance for net sales in the range of $352 million to $359 million, adjusted earnings per share (EPS) of $0.64 to $0.68 and free cash flow of greater than $35 million.
