Revenue Increased 10% Sequentially
Record Non-Prostate Brachytherapy Revenue Increased 20% Year-Over-Year
RICHLAND, Wash., May 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Isoray, Inc. (NYSE AMERICAN: ISR), a medical technology company and innovator in seed brachytherapy powering expanding treatment options throughout the body, today announced its financial results for the third quarter fiscal 2021 ended March 31, 2021.
Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 declined 10% to $2.60 million versus the record $2.88 million in the prior year comparable period. Revenue increased 10% sequentially from the fiscal second quarter ended December 31,2020. The company’s core prostate brachytherapy revenue declined 16% versus the record third quarter of fiscal 2020 as procedure volumes continued to be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, third quarter prostate increased 7% sequentially from the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Prostate brachytherapy represented 78% of total revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to 84% in the prior year comparable period. Record non-prostate brachytherapy revenue increased 20% versus the prior year comparable period. The majority of non-prostate brachytherapy revenue in the quarter was comprised of sales to treat brain and lung cancers.
Gross profit as a percentage of revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was 52.4% versus 59.2% in the prior year comparable period. Third quarter gross profit decreased 20% to $1.36 million versus $1.71 million in the record third quarter of fiscal 2020.
Isoray CEO Lori Woods said, “Despite the pandemic, we are more optimistic than ever before about our future path and the success of our efforts. We are encouraged by the sequential growth we experienced in our core prostate brachytherapy business as well as our growing strength in adoptions for the treatment of other cancers. Going forward, we remain focused on executing our strategic plans for continued growth. We believe that Isoray’s enhanced capital position will be pivotal in allowing us to capitalize on growth opportunities.”
Total operating expenses for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 declined 6% to $2.13 million versus $2.25 million in the prior year comparable period. Total research and development expenses increased 23% versus the prior year comparable period. The increase in total research and development expenses was primarily the result of increased payroll, benefits, and share based compensation and increased protocol expenses which were partially offset by a reduction of development expenses for the Blu Build™ delivery system versus the comparable prior year period.
Sales and marketing expenses decreased 28% versus the prior year comparable period. The decrease in sales and marketing expenses was driven primarily by declines in travel and tradeshow costs due to COVID-19 restrictions as well as decreased incentive compensation resulting from lower revenue growth compared to the prior year comparable period. General and administrative expenses increased 2% versus the prior year comparable period, primarily the result of increased director and officer insurance expense, increased payroll, and IT consulting expenses, which were partially offset by decreased travel costs due to COVID-19 restrictions as well as decreased employee hiring costs and legal fees.
The net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was $0.75 million or ($0.01) per basic and diluted share versus a net loss of $0.55 million or ($0.01) per basic and diluted share in the comparable prior year period. Basic and diluted per share results are based on weighted average shares outstanding of approximately 122.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 versus 67.6 million in the comparable prior year period.
For the first nine months of fiscal 2021 ended March 31, 2021, revenue decreased modestly to $7.34 million versus $7.40 million in the prior year comparable nine-month period. Prostate brachytherapy represented 79% of total revenue for the first nine months of fiscal 2021 compared to 87% for the first nine months of fiscal 2020. Total operating expenses for the first nine months of fiscal 2021 decreased 3% to $6.13 million, versus $6.34 million in the prior year comparable nine-month period. The net loss for the first nine months of fiscal 2021 was $2.33 million, or ($0.03) per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $2.26 million, or ($0.03) per basic and diluted share, in the prior year comparable nine-month period. Basic and diluted per share results are based on weighted average shares outstanding of approximately 91.3 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2021, versus 67.4 million in the comparable prior year nine-month period.
Cash, cash equivalents, and certificates of deposit at the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2021 totaled $64.8 million and the company had no long-term debt. Stockholders’ equity at the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2021 totaled $68.1 million.
