Dynasil Corporation of America Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2013 Financial Results Navigator 2.0™ medical probe for cancer surgery is approved and began shipping in the Third Quarter ended June 30, 2013

WATERTOWN, Mass., Aug. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dynasil Corporation of America (NASDAQ: DYSL), a leading developer of sensing, detection and analysis technology for homeland security, medical and industrial applications, today announced financial results for the fiscal 2013 third quarter ended June 30, 2013. 

Dynasil reported a net loss for the quarter of ($366,000) or ($0.02) per share, compared with net loss of ($332,000), or ($0.02) per share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.  The third quarter results include initial sales of the Company's new Navigator 2.0™ medical probe for cancer surgery which was approved for sale and began shipping in late May 2013.  "I am happy to report that our updated Navigator 2.0™ medical probe was approved for sale in the United States and we began shipping this refreshed product," said Dynasil Chairman and Interim CEO Peter Sulick.  "We are currently pursuing the CE Mark, necessary to meet European Union requirements, and anticipate international sales will begin in the near future."

Net revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 declined $0.8 million to $11.3 million, compared with $12.1 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2012.  Revenue declined in the Contract Research and Optics segments in the quarter while the Instruments segment remained largely flat as compared with the same period last year.  Gross profit for the third quarter of 2013 declined slightly to $4.8 million from $5.0 million for the same period in 2012 although gross margins increased to 43% in the quarter compared to 41% for the third quarter of fiscal 2012. 

Operating expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2013 were $5.0 million, a decrease of $81,000 compared to the same period in 2012.  The decrease was a result of the reduced expenditures associated with the product refresh within the Instruments segment in 2012 which was largely offset by increased General and Administrative expenses.

The Company continues to be in default of certain financial covenants set forth in the terms of its outstanding indebtedness as of June 30, 2013.  However, the Company has made all principal and interest payments due its senior lender through August 12, 2013, the date of this earnings release.  The Company has accrued but not remitted interest payments to its subordinated lender since February, 2013.  Management is currently evaluating potential transactions involving the sales of divisions and/or product lines which, if consummated, would result in additional debt principal payments to the bank.  The Company cannot, however, predict when or whether a resolution of this situation will be achieved.

Quarterly Business Highlights

The Company received regulatory approval for its updated medical probe for cancer surgery in the third quarter for the United States market and began shipping this product.  The Company is continuing to pursue CE mark approval for this product internationally.  In addition, the Company is evaluating preliminary test results received on its updated lead paint analyzer product while also evaluating strategic alternatives associated with this product.

The Company continues to pursue various commercialization opportunities arising from technologies developed within our Contract Research segment.  "One of our leading commercialization efforts involve our CLYC crystals, which are now being sold commercially," stated Mr. Sulick. "We continue our efforts to further improve the size and quality of this product as well as develop new applications."  

Additionally, the Company has prepared a separate business and financing plan for one of the biomedical technologies.  Our intention is to spin out the tissue sealant technology into an independent entity in which the Company would retain a substantial interest.  This would enable us to raise funds specifically for this venture and recruit additional expertise to help advance the technology.  In June, 2013, our senior lender agreed to release the intellectual property and related collateral in connection with the spin-out in exchange for an additional debt payment of $300,000.  As a result, we are proceeding with plans to establish the joint venture and raise outside funding to support the joint venture; however, there can be no assurance that we will be able to raise the funding necessary for the transaction or consummate this transaction at any future time.

The Company has no conference calls scheduled at this time.
