Encision Reports Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2014 Results

BOULDER, Colo., Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Encision Inc. (OTC PINK: ECIA), a medical device company owning patented surgical technology that  prevents stray electrosurgical burns in minimally invasive surgery, today announced financial results for its fiscal 2014 third quarter ended December 31, 2013.

The Company posted quarterly revenue of $2.716 million for a quarterly net income of $33 thousand, or $0.00 per share. These results compare to revenue of $3.055 million for a net loss of $82 thousand, or $(0.01) per share, in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin on revenue was 52.4 percent compared to 54.5 percent in the year-ago quarter. The decrease in gross margin from the year-ago quarter was the result of the increase in overhead costs per unit of product due to decreased product revenue. Interest and other expense, net, included $59 thousand for the medical device excise tax that started January 1, 2013.

The Company posted nine months product revenue of $7.852 million and nine months service revenue of $191 thousand for a nine months net loss of $329 thousand, or $(0.04) per share. These results compare to product revenue of $8.566 million and service revenue of $464 thousand for a net loss of $337 thousand, or $(0.04) per share, in the year-ago nine months. Gross margin was 53.3 percent compared to 55.7 percent in the year-ago nine months. Interest and other expense, net, included $179 thousand for the nine months for the medical device excise tax that started January 1, 2013.

"Product revenue for our third quarter of fiscal year 2014 increased two percent sequentially from our second quarter and declined 10.5 percent versus last year's third quarter," said Greg Trudel, President and CEO. "Last April and May, the Company made significant expense reductions which resulted in a $423 thousand decrease in operating expenses in our third quarter versus the year ago quarter. Those expense reductions principally contributed to our operating income of $98 thousand versus last year's third quarter operating loss of $83 thousand."

"I appreciate the confidence that our investors have in our proprietary AEM® Technology and in the future of our Company. In December 2013, we completed a private placement of 2,463,125 shares of our common stock and warrants that may be exercised into 1,231,563 shares of the Company's common stock, which raised approximately $2 million, before fees. After paying off our line of credit, cash and equivalents at quarter end stood at approximately $1.5 million, which will be used for supporting marketing, sales and engineering programs.  In addition, in December 2013, we announced that we filed a premarket notification under Section 510(k) with the FDA of our intent to market what had previously been described as an AEM simplification product, now called the AEM EndoShield(TM) Burn Protection System (trademark applied for), which is a major evolution of our AEM monitoring system. We anticipate releasing this product in late Spring of 2014."

Encision Inc. designs and markets a portfolio of high performance surgical instrumentation that delivers advances in patient safety with AEM® Technology, surgical performance, and value to hospitals across a broad range of minimally invasive surgical procedures. Based in Boulder, CO, the company pioneered the development and deployment of Active Electrode Monitoring, AEM Technology, to eliminate dangerous stray energy burns during minimally invasive procedures.
