IRVINE, CA / ACCESSWIRE / August 27, 2020 / PRO-DEX, INC. (NASDAQ:PDEX) today announced financial results for its fiscal 2020 fourth quarter and full-year ended June 30, 2020.
Quarter Ended June 30, 2020
Net sales for the three months ended June 30, 2020 increased $4.1 million, or 59%, to $11.1 million from $7.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019, due primarily to increased medical device sales related to two new product launches as well as increased revenue generated from our largest customer. Revenue to our largest customer increased by $1.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 compared to the fourth quarter of the prior year. In the third quarter of fiscal 2020 we began shipping a thoracic driver to one of our existing craniomaxillofacial ("CMF") customers and sales generated in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 related to this new product totaled $1.0 million. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 we completed the development of a next generation CMF driver for an existing customer and same quarter sales related to this new product totaled $600,000. Gross profit for the three months ended June 30, 2020 increased $1.7 million or 69%, to $4.3 million from $2.5 million for the same period in 2019. The increase in gross margin is due to better absorption of our fixed costs resulting from higher sales volumes.
Operating expenses (which include selling, general and administrative, and research and development expenses) for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 increased 53% to $2.1 million from $1.4 million in the prior year's corresponding quarter, due primarily to increased expenditures of $483,000 in general and administrative expenses due to increased equity compensation expense and increased bonus accruals and $270,000 in research and development costs to support our continued efforts to further grow our business.
Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 increased by $1.7 million to $2.5 million, or $0.64 per diluted share, compared to $888,000, or $0.21 per diluted share, in the corresponding quarter in 2019.
Year Ended June 30, 2020
Net sales for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020 increased $7.7 million, or 28%, to $34.8 million from $27.2 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2019, due primarily to increases in medical device revenues. Specifically, our largest customer accounted for an increase of $5.6 million in revenue during fiscal 2020 and we generated sales of $3.1 million in fiscal 2020 due to the new thoracic driver and next generation CMF driver described above.
Gross profit for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020 increased $3.4 million, or 34%, to $13.1 million compared to $9.8 million for fiscal 2019, due to increased revenues and manufacturing efficiencies.
Operating expenses (which include selling, general and administrative, and research and development expenses) for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020 increased 27% to $6.1 million from $4.8 million in the prior fiscal year, due to increased personnel expenses across all departments and increased equity compensation expense, bonus accruals and professional services.
Net income for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020 was $6.1 million, or $1.50 per diluted share, compared to $4.2 million, or $0.97 per diluted share, for fiscal 2019.
Although the Company has released its earnings prior to the filing of its annual Form 10-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission, we are able to do this because we are a non-accelerated filer and as a result have more time to do so at fiscal year-end. During our quarterly reporting periods we anticipate that our earnings releases will continue to be released at the same time as our Form 10-Q's are filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We anticipate filing our Form 10-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission on September 10, 2020.
Pro-Dex typically provides neither sales nor earnings guidance, and while the COVID-19 pandemic did not materially adversely affect our financial results in our fiscal year ended June 30, 2020, we cannot predict the longer-term impact of the pandemic on our business. Additionally, as described above, we released two new products in the second half of fiscal 2020 and while we expect to have future orders for these new products, often the launch or initial quantities are such that our customer can comfortably fill its distribution network and follow on orders may not occur for many months. As a result, fiscal 2020 sales of these products may not be indicative of what sales of these products may be in the future.
"We are very pleased with our fourth quarter and fiscal year results, and the shipment of the thoracic driver and newly developed next-generation CMF driver. These two product releases occurred in quick succession and demonstrate the culmination of long periods of research and development as well as verification and validation. The timing of these product releases led to a record quarter. While we do not expect every quarter to have two launches and meet such record levels, we still plan to build our business year over year. Pro-Dex's priorities, in response to COVID-19, remain the health and safety of our employees, our communities, customers, and suppliers," said the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer Richard L. ("Rick") Van Kirk. "While we cannot predict the total impact caused by the pandemic, we remain committed to our strategy to continue to provide a safe workplace for our employees, excellent service to our existing customers, and new product introductions to continue to grow our business."

* We substantially completed this product and began initial shipments of a private-labeled version to an existing CMF customer during the third quarter of fiscal 2020, generating $3.1 million in revenue during fiscal 2020.
(1) This project has been internally pushed back to focus on our new internal Pro-Dex branded ENT shaver.
(2) Internal development of this project is complete, but we are looking for the most attractive sales channel and have yet to sell this product.
As we previously discussed, in early fiscal 2019 we entered a development contract with a current significant customer to private-label our thoracic driver for their unique specifications. We shipped initial launch quantities of this product during the third quarter ended March 31, 2020. Additionally, the customer CMF driver listed in the prior year was completed during fiscal 2020 and we began shipping initial quantities to this customer during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 and generated $556,000 in revenue related to this new product.
