Surmodics Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2019 Results

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Updates Fiscal 2019 Guidance

Surmodics, Inc. (SRDX), a leading provider of medical device and in vitro diagnostic technologies to the healthcare industry, today announced results for its fiscal 2019 second quarter ended March 31, 2019, and updated its financial outlook for fiscal 2019.

Summary of Second Quarter and Recent Highlights

  • Revenue of $22.7 million, an increase of 19% year-over-year
  • GAAP EPS of $0.09, non-GAAP EPS of $0.07
  • TRANSCEND clinical trial enrollment 75% complete
  • FDA Clearance of Sublime™ guide sheath for radial access

“Our second quarter performance marked our fourth consecutive quarter of double-digit year-over-year revenue growth as both our Medical Device and IVD businesses continued to generate meaningful top-line gains,” said Gary Maharaj, President and CEO of Surmodics. “Despite the current uncertainty related to paclitaxel-coated devices, we have appropriately adjusted our TRANSCEND trial to respond to the FDA’s recommendations and are pleased to have many of our trial sites actively enrolling and randomizing patients. In addition, we continue to make progress on our key strategic initiatives including the recent FDA 510(k) clearance of our Sublime guide sheath for radial access to the peripheral arteries.”

Second Quarter Fiscal 2019 Financial Results

Total revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2019 was $22.7 million, as compared with $19.1 million in the prior-year period. Medical Device revenue was $17.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2019, as compared with $14.1 million in the year-ago period, an increase of 23%, and includes $1.6 million from our SurVeil™ agreement with Abbott, as compared with $0.5 million in the prior-year quarter. In Vitro Diagnostics revenue was $5.4 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2019 as compared with $5.0 million in the same prior-year quarter, an increase of 7%.

Diluted GAAP earnings per share in the second quarter of fiscal 2019 was $0.09 as compared with $0.11 in the year-ago period. On a non-GAAP basis, earnings per share were $0.07 in the second quarter of fiscal 2019, as compared with $0.07 in the year-ago period.

As of March 31, 2019, cash and investments were $46.5 million. Surmodics generated $1.5 million of cash from operating activities in the second quarter of fiscal 2019. Capital expenditures totaled $1.0 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2019.

Fiscal 2019 Guidance Revised

Although we continue to enroll patients in our TRANSCEND trial, the current uncertainty related to utilization of paclitaxel-coated devices has and is expected to continue to impact our recognition of SurVeil revenue and TRANSCEND clinical trial expense. We are updating our full-year revenue and earnings guidance for fiscal 2019 to account for this impact, as well as our strong operating performance in the first half of our fiscal year. We are lowering our fiscal 2019 revenue expectations by $5.5 million to a range of $88.5 million to $91.5 million, from our previous revenue range of $94 million to $97 million. We are increasing our fiscal 2019 diluted GAAP EPS to a range of $0.14 to $0.24 per share compared with our previous expectations of a diluted loss in the range of ($0.22) to a loss of ($0.02) per share. Diluted non-GAAP EPS is now expected to be in the range of $0.26 to $0.36 per share compared with previous expectations of $0.02 to $0.22 per share.

Safe Harbor for Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements. Statements that are not historical or current facts, including statements about beliefs and expectations regarding the Company’s performance in the near- and long-term, including our revenue and earnings expectations for fiscal 2019, our SurVeil DCB and other proprietary products, and the TRANSCEND clinical trial are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, and important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated, including (1) our ability to successfully develop, timely complete clinical trials for, obtain regulatory approval for and, if approved, commercialize our SurVeil DCB (including realization of the full potential benefits of our agreement with Abbott), and other proprietary products; (2) our reliance on third parties (including our customers and licensees) and their failure to successfully develop, obtain regulatory approval for, market and sell products incorporating our technologies; (3) possible adverse market conditions and possible adverse impacts on our cash flows, and (4) the factors identified under “Risk Factors” in Part I, Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2018, and updated in our subsequent reports filed with the SEC. These reports are available in the Investors section of our website at https://surmodics.gcs-web.com and at the SEC website at www.sec.gov. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and we undertake no obligation to update them in light of new information or future events.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, Surmodics is reporting non-GAAP financial results including EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP income before income taxes, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, and the non-GAAP effective income tax rate. We believe that these non-GAAP measures, when read in conjunction with the Company’s GAAP financial statements, provide meaningful insight into our operating performance excluding certain event-specific matters, and provide an alternative perspective of our results of operations. We use non-GAAP measures, including those set forth in this release, to assess our operating performance and to determine payout under our executive compensation programs. We believe that presentation of certain non-GAAP measures allows investors to review our results of operations from the same perspective as management and our board of directors and facilitates comparisons of our current results of operations. The method we use to produce non-GAAP results is not in accordance with GAAP and may differ from the methods used by other companies. Non-GAAP results should not be regarded as a substitute for corresponding GAAP measures but instead should be utilized as a supplemental measure of operating performance in evaluating our business. Non-GAAP measures do have limitations in that they do not reflect certain items that may have a material impact on our reported financial results. As such, these non-GAAP measures should be viewed in conjunction with both our financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP and the reconciliation of the supplemental non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP results provided for the specific periods presented, which are attached to this release.

(1)   Represents accounting adjustments to state acquisition-related contingent consideration liabilities at their estimated fair value, including accretion for the passage of time as well as adjustments to the liabilities’ fair values related to changes in the timing and/or probability of achieving milestones. The tables include contingent consideration liability adjustments in each respective historical period and do not include in future-period fair value changes, other than estimated accretion expense as determined at the end of the current quarter. These amounts are not taxable or tax deductible.
(2) Foreign exchange gains and losses are related to marking non-U.S. dollar contingent consideration to period-end or settlement date exchange rates. The tables include foreign currency exchange loss or gain recorded in each respective historical period and do not include forecasted currency fluctuations in future periods. These gains and losses are not taxable or tax deductible.
(3) Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets and associated tax impact. A significant portion of the acquisition-related amortization is not tax deductible.
(4) Represents the gain recognized on the sale of a strategic investment which was not tax-affected as it was offset by previously recognized capital losses.
(5) Income tax expense from the re-measurement of net deferred tax assets recognized after the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in December 2017.
(6) Represents a royalty-related customer claim accrued at $1.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2018, settled in the second quarter of 2019 for $0.4 million.
(7) Net income (loss) includes the effect of the above adjustments on the income tax provision, taking into account deferred taxes and non-deductible items. Effective rates of 21% (fiscal 2019) and 24.5% (fiscal 2018) were used to estimate the income tax impact of the adjustments, except that expenses occurring in Ireland have not been tax-affected as all tax benefits are offset by a full valuation allowance.
