MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Cogentix Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ: CGNT), a global medical device company with innovative and proprietary products serving urology and airway management markets, today announced that its Board of Directors has approved a change in the Company's fiscal year-end to December 31 from March 31. The change will result in a stub period from April 1, 2015, to December 31, 2015. As a result of the change, the first full fiscal year will end on December 31, 2016. This change in fiscal year-end from March 31 to December 31 is being made by the Company to better align the Company's financial reporting calendar with its customer base as well as industry peers.
"We believe our new fiscal year-end will make it easier for the financial community to understand our performance and growth relative to our industry peers, most of which have a calendar fiscal year-end of December 31," said Rob Kill, President and CEO of Cogentix Medical. "In addition, we believe the new fiscal year reporting period will enhance our financial planning and management as most of our customers utilize a calendar year fiscal year."
The Company currently expects to report results for the quarter and stub year ending December 31, 2015 during the second half of February 2016. At that time, the Company will provide guidance for its new fiscal year starting January 1, 2016. In the meantime, today the Company confirmed its previously provided guidance for the 12 months ending March 31, 2016 for total revenue of between $49 and $51 million and cash operating loss of $1 million to $2 million.
