IRIDEX Reports 2013 Second Quarter Results; $9.2 Million Record Q2 Revenue

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- IRIDEX Corporation (Nasdaq: IRIX) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 29, 2013. 

  • Revenues were $9.2 million in the second quarter of 2013, up from $8.4 million in the prior year comparable period and up sequentially from $8.9 million in the first quarter of 2013.
  • For the second quarter of 2013, operating income was $0.5 million compared with an operating loss of $0.4 million for the second quarter of 2012.
  • Net income from continuing operations was $0.4 million or $0.04 per diluted share for the second quarter of both 2013 and 2012. The second quarter of 2012 benefited from the final $0.8 million payment under a legal settlement that was recorded as part of other income.
  • Gross margin for the second quarter of 2013 was 48.7%, comparable to 48.7% in the prior year period and up from 47.3% in the 2013 first quarter.
  • As anticipated, operating expenses again trended downward in the second quarter of 2013 to $4.0 million compared to $4.5 million in the prior year period.
  • Revenues for the first six months 2013 were $18.1 million, up 8% from last year's first six months.
  • Operating income for the first half of 2013 was $1.4 million, up $2.0 million from last year.
  • Income from continuing operations for the first half of 2013 was $1.3 million compared to $0.1 million for the first half of 2012, or earnings of $0.13 per share compared to $0.01 per share on a diluted basis.
  • Guidance for third quarter: The Company expects to achieve revenue between $8.8 million and $9.1 million, representing growth of between 11% and 15% over the prior year period. Gross margin is anticipated to come in between 47% and 49%, operating expenses between $3.9 million and $4.1 million and the Company anticipates generating operating income.

President and CEO Will Moore said, "Sales of both consumable products and systems continued to be strong in the second quarter, including solid contributions from our licensing and distribution partner and from the Peregrine distribution agreement announced in April. The repositioned IRIDEX is now thinking and executing like a commercial organization and the benefits of that orientation are becoming clear in the financial results."

Moore continued, "While we are not yet at the tipping point in the broad industry, the upside for our MicroPulse™ technology continues to grow for both Diabetic Macular Edema and more recently for Glaucoma. Literally dozens of clinical publications – most without any financial support from the Company – have been presented or printed in the past 6 months. Physicians are not only adopting the technology in growing numbers, they are anxious to drive the technology into new areas of therapy due to the safety and efficacy of MicroPulse. We couldn't be happier with the efforts of leading physicians in the field that are pushing the use of our technology forward to the benefit of patients and the healthcare system. The refrain we are hearing is that the system can simply no longer support the use of drug-only treatment regimens with the advent of MicroPulse tissue sparing laser options."

During the second quarter 2013, the Company continued to execute its share repurchase program. Approximately 17,000 shares have been repurchased at an average price of $4.50 under the plan approved in February 2013.

1H 2013 Business Highlights

  • The Company converted all outstanding shares of its Series A Preferred Stock into 1,000,000 shares of its common stock. The Series A Preferred shares were issued to BlueLine Capital Partners LP (BlueLine) as part of a private placement agreement that occurred in 2007. The Certificate of Designation provided that the Series A Preferred shares automatically converted into common stock if IRIDEX common stock traded above $5.00 for 30 consecutive trading days.
  • The Company received two significant orders for its proprietary laser-based medical systems for the treatment of eye diseases. The orders, totaling more than $500,000, are indicative of the burgeoning growth of the ophthalmology market in the "BRIC" economies (Brazil, Russia, India and China) as well as the advantages of modern laser treatments.
  • The Company entered into a global distribution and supply agreement with Peregrine Surgical, Ltd., a privately held company based in New Britain, Pennsylvania. Under the agreement, IRIDEX became a worldwide distributor for Peregrine labeled products and Peregrine Surgical became part of the IRIDEX supply chain for the manufacture of certain IRIDEX products.
  • In February 2013, the Board approved a new stock repurchase program for one year for up to $3 million.
