Allied Healthcare Products Reports Loss On Depressed Sales

ST. LOUIS, May 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The continuing recession in domestic hospital equipment and a dip in international sales resulted in a loss for Allied Healthcare Products (NASDAQ: AHPI) in its third quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Net loss for the quarter ending March 31, 2013, was about $280,000, or a negative 3 cents per basic and diluted share, versus a loss of about $146,000, or a negative 2 cents per basic and diluted share, for the prior year. Sales for the third quarter fell from about $10.7 million to about $9.2 million, or almost 14 percent, from the previous year.

For the first three quarters of fiscal 2013, Allied's net loss was $1,158,800 or a negative 14 cents per basic and diluted share, compared to a loss of about $268,000, or negative 3 cents per basic and diluted share, for the prior year. Sales for the company's first three quarters declined from about $32.8 million to $28.4 million, or about 13 percent, from the previous year.

Formerly healthy international sales flattened in the quarter. A major impact was the lack of sales in Venezuela following the illness and death of President Hugo Chavez.

The company is beginning to see good growth in sales with its new carbon dioxide absorbent Litholyme®, used in anesthesia procedures, according to Earl Refsland, Allied president and chief executive officer. "As the market becomes aware of the product's economic and safety benefits, we believe sales will accelerate accordingly," Refsland said.

In a one-time event, Allied booked about $516,000 in income in January 2013 from the demutualization and sale of its product liability insurer.

In what will be a recurring expense, Allied paid a new excise tax on medical devices levied as part of the Affordable Care Act. The tax is 2.3 percent on certain devices and cost Allied $70,000 in the third quarter.

Allied Healthcare Products manufactures a variety of respiratory products used in the healthcare industry in a range of hospital and alternate care settings including sub-acute facilities, home healthcare and emergency medical care. Allied product lines include respiratory care products, medical gas equipment and emergency medical products. Allied products are marketed to hospitals, hospital equipment dealers, hospital construction contractors, home healthcare dealers and emergency medical product dealers.
