Earnings Reviewed

For the three months ended November 30, 2016, AngioDynamics reported net sales of $89.0 million, down 0.3% compared to $89.3 million in the year ago same period. Overall revenue for the reported quarter was driven by the Company's Peripheral Vascular franchise's core business. The Company's sales numbers fell below analysts' forecasts of $91.4 million.

For Q2 FY17, AngioDynamics' gross margin was 50.6%, which was slightly below the prior-year's corresponding quarter. The Company's adjusted EBITDA in the reported quarter was $16.1 million, or $0.43 per share, compared to $13.5 million, or $0.37 per share, in the year earlier comparable quarter.

For Q2 FY17, AngioDynamics recorded net income of $13.7 million, or $0.37 on a per share basis. The Company recorded a net loss of $0.3 million, or $0.01 on a per share basis, in Q2 FY16. AngioDynamics' earnings results were primarily driven by adjustments to contingent consideration and operational improvements. The adjustments to contingent consideration comprised $16.5 million based upon a determination that both AngioVac and an R&D project related to tip location will no longer meet the necessary milestones that will require future liability payments. These gains were partially offset by a $3.6 million write-off of the intangible asset associated with the original consideration paid for the tip location project, as well as an unrelated $2.0 million write-off of the Company's investment in EmboMedics. On an adjusted basis, the Company recorded net income for Q2 FY17 of $6.9 million, or $0.19 per share, compared to an adjusted net income of $5.1 million, or $0.14 per share, in Q2 FY16. The results surpassed Wall Street's expectations for earnings of $0.16 per share.

Segment Results

During Q2 FY17, AngioDynamics' peripheral Vascular net sales totaled $52.9 million up 4.0% compared to $51.1 million in Q2 FY16. The Company stated that it capitalized on demand in its core business, enhanced by the Cook Medical recall, which included $3.6 million in revenue during the reported quarter. AngioDynamics' Vascular Access net sales in Q2 FY17 were $23.6 million down 6% compared to $25.0 million a year ago. The Company stated that declines were across the Vascular Access franchise, but were partially offset by growth in BioFlo Midlines and dialysis.

During Q2 FY17, AngioDynamics' Oncology/Surgery segment recorded net sales of $11.8 million, down 6% compared to $12.5 million in Q2 FY16. The decline was driven by lower sales in ablation products and NanoKnife capital, which is partially offset by an increase in NanoKnife utilization.
On a geographical basis, overall US net sales in Q2 FY17 were $70.8 million compared to $70.7 million in the year ago corresponding quarter. Overall International net sales in the reported quarter were $17.4 million compared to $17.9 million a year ago.
