Implant Sciences Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2014 Financial Results Increased acceptance of QS-B220 by domestic and international freight forwarders

WILMINGTON, Mass., Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Implant Sciences Corporation (OTCQB: IMSC), a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for the homeland security market and related industries, today announced financial results for the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2013.  

Revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 decreased 18%, to $1.2 million, from $1.4 million for the comparable prior year period.  Our net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 was $6.0 million as compared with a net loss of $12.7 million for the comparable prior year period, a decrease of $6.7 million.  The decrease in the net loss is primarily due to a $7.9 million decrease in stock-based compensation recorded in the quarter ended September 30, 2013 on option grants to our directors and officers in September 2012, offset partially by increased operating expenses and increased interest expense.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, stock-based compensation, warrants issued to non-employees and common stock issued to consultants ("Adjusted EBITDA"), which is reconciled to net loss in this press release, calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, were a loss of $2,707,000 in the quarter ended September 30, 2013, compared to a loss of $2,032,000 in the comparable prior year period.

Glenn D. Bolduc, President and CEO of Implant Sciences, commented, "During our recently concluded first quarter Implant Sciences achieved a number of important strategic goals that we believe position the Company for consistent and sustainable growth. We have taken important steps to broaden the markets we serve, increase our revenue opportunities, and improve our financial stability." The following are some of our recent developments:

  • In July 2013, the QS-B220 successfully completed Independent Testing and Evaluation with the TSL and is currently in testing at the TSA Systems Integration Facility for qualification on the TSA's Qualified Product List for passenger checkpoint and checked baggage screening.
  • On September 30, 2013, our QS-B220 Desktop Trace Detector was certified by the Service Technique de l'Aviation Civile ("STAC"), the French civil aviation authority, for passenger and cargo screening, at airports throughout France, French territories and several European Union member nations.
  • On October 18, 2013, the QS-B220 was accepted into the "Qualified" section of the TSA's Air Cargo Screening Technology List from with the TSA encourages regulated air cargo screening facilities to purchase security solutions.
  • The QS-B220 received Designation as Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology from the Department of Homeland Security under the Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technology Act of 2002 (the SAFETY Act) on November 1, 2013.
  • We achieved growing sales of our QS-B220 to customers including the U.S. Government and several domestic and international freight forwarders.

Mr. Bolduc concluded, "Our continued progress with the TSA, in achieving acceptance onto the air cargo screening technology list and independent validation testing for passenger checkpoint screening, along with achieving STAC certification, are very significant achievements which we believe establish our credibility as the next generation explosives technology in the competitive global trace explosives industry. The influx of industry talent that we have recruited over the past twelve months increases our ability to innovate new technologies, build new products, and grow our market share and revenues.  We remain excited about our future prospects."

Details for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 follow below.

Quarter Ended September 30, 2013 vs. September 30, 2012    

  • Revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 were $1,165,000 as compared with $1,415,000 for the comparable prior year period, a decrease of $250,000, or 17.7%.  The decrease in revenue is due primarily to the decreased shipment of QS-H150 handheld units sold into Northern Africa and China in the three months ended September 30, 2013, resulting in a 81% decrease in the number of QS-H150 handheld units sold, decreased sales of parts and supplies during the three months ended September 30, 2013, as compared to the comparable prior year period, partially offset by an 8.2% increase in average unit sell prices on sales our QS-H150 handheld units and increased sales of our QS-B220 benchtop units.

  • Gross margin for the three months ended September 30, 2013 was $213,000 or 18.3% of revenues as compared with gross loss of $39,000 or (2.8%) of revenues for the comparable prior year period.  The increase in gross margin is primarily the result of the $372,000 decrease in stock-based compensation recorded on stock option grants to officers and directors in September 2012, partially offset by increased manufacturing overhead spending due to an increase in manufacturing personnel costs and increased occupancy costs, as compared to the prior year period.

  • Research and development expense for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 was $1,231,000 as compared with $1,337,000 for the comparable prior year period, a decrease of $106,000 or 7.9%.  The decrease in research and development expense is due primarily to a $339,000 decrease in stock-based compensation recorded on the September 2012 officer and director option grants, partially offset by a $217,000 increase in payroll and related benefit costs and increased occupancy costs. 

  • Selling, general and administrative expenses for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 were $3,408,000 as compared with $10,131,000 for the comparable prior year period, a decrease of $6,723,000, or 66.4%. The decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses is due primarily to a $7,189,000 decrease in stock-based compensation recorded on the September 2012 officer and director option grants, a $123,000 decrease in legal fees and a $41,000 decrease in bank charges, offset partially by a $299,000 increase in payroll, related benefit costs and travel expense resulting from the addition of sales personnel, a $211,000 increase in occupancy costs, due to the relocation of our corporate offices, a $114,000 increase in selling expenses due to the opening of our Shanghai representative office, increased participation at industry trade shows and an increase in demonstration units provided to our sales force.

  • For the quarter ended September 30, 2013, other expense was $1,595,000 as compared with other expense of $1,241,000, for the comparable prior year period, an increase of $354,000. The increase is due to increased interest expense on higher borrowings under our credit facility with DMRJ Group.

  • Our net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 was $6,021,000 as compared with a net loss of $12,748,000 for the comparable prior year period, a decrease of $6,727,000, or 52.8%.  The decrease in the net loss is primarily due to the decrease in stock-based compensation recorded on the September 2012 officer and director option grants in the quarter ended September 30, 2013, partially offset by increased operating expenses and increased interest expense.

(1) Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net loss plus interest expense, net of interest income, income taxes, depreciation, stock-based compensation, fair value of warrants issued to non-employees and the fair value of common stock issued to consultants.  EBITDA is commonly used in the technology industry, and we present Adjusted EBITDA to enhance your understanding of our financial performance.  We use Adjusted EBITDA as an internal performance measurement and believe that it provides investors and analysts with a measure of operating results unaffected by differences in capital structures and capital investment among otherwise comparable companies and improves comparability of results of operations. Management uses this supplemental measure to evaluate performance over a period of time and to analyze underlying trends in the Company's business and to establish operational goals and forecast that are used in allocating resources.  We expect to compute our non-GAAP financial measure, using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter and year to year.                 

While we believe that Adjusted EBITDA is a useful measure for investors, it is not a measurement presented in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP.  You should not consider Adjusted EBITDA in isolation or as a substitute for net income, cash flows from operations, or any other performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.  In addition, Adjusted EBITDA has inherent material limitations as a performance measure.  It does not include interest expense, but because we have borrowed money, interest expense is a necessary element of our costs.  In addition, Adjusted EBITDA does not include depreciation.  Since we have capital assets, depreciation expense is a necessary element of our costs.  Adjusted EBITDA does not include stock-based compensation, which is a necessary element of our costs since we issue stock awards to employees as an important incentive to maximize overall company performance and as a benefit of employment with the company.  Adjusted EBITDA does not include the fair value of warrants issued to non-employees, which is a necessary element of our costs since we have issued warrants to non-employees and as part of our financing strategy. Finally, Adjusted EBITDA does not include the fair value of common stock issued to consultants, which is a necessary element of our costs since we have issued shares of our common stock in lieu of cash payments to consultants we have retained. Because not all companies use identical calculations, our presentation of Adjusted EDITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.
