Uroplasty Reports Fiscal First Quarter 2014 Financial Results Total Revenue Sets New Quarterly Record; First Sequential Revenue Growth in Three Quarters

Novitas Solutions, Inc. Expands Coverage of PTNS

MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Uroplasty, Inc. (NASDAQ: UPI), a medical device company that develops, manufactures and markets innovative proprietary products to treat voiding dysfunctions, today reported financial results for the fiscal 2014 first quarter ended June 30, 2013. 

Fiscal First Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Fiscal first quarter 2014 sales in the U.S. increased 6%, driven by a 10% increase in sales of the Urgent® PC Neuromodulation System, compared with fiscal first quarter a year ago.  U.S. Urgent PC Sales in the fiscal first quarter of 2014 were $2.8 million.  Global sales increased 5% to $5.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2014, compared with $5.6 million in the fiscal first quarter a year ago.

"Fiscal first quarter sales of Urgent PC grew 11% from the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013, despite the distractions we faced.  This was the first sequential quarterly growth we've achieved in three quarters and is a strong indication that the changes we have made in the sales organization are beginning to gain traction," said Rob Kill, President and Chief Executive Officer of Uroplasty. "As we look ahead into the new fiscal year, we are optimistic about the outlook.  We have innovative and effective product lines combined with favorable reimbursement that continues to improve.  The market is large and remains underpenetrated. With the resolution of our leadership and fiscal 2013 financial statements, we are fully focused on growing sales and driving to profitability as we seek to enhance value for our investors."

Net sales to customers outside the U.S. for the fiscal first quarter totaled $1.6 million, compared to $1.5 million in the fiscal first quarter last year.  Excluding the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, sales outside the U.S. were down 3%. 

The Company reported a gross margin of 87.2% in the recent fiscal first quarter compared with 86.5% in the same quarter a year ago.  The operating loss of $1.6 million in the fiscal first quarter compares with a $1.0 million operating loss in the same quarter last year. Excluding non-cash charges for share-based compensation and depreciation and amortization expense, the non-GAAP operating loss was $1.5 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2014, compared with a $567,000 non-GAAP operating loss in the first quarter a year ago.  The increase in operating loss was primarily attributable to an increase in operating expenses.

Novitas Solutions, Inc. Expands Coverage of PTNS

Uroplasty also announced that, effective today, August 1, 2013, Novitas Solutions, Inc. has expanded coverage for Posterior Tibial Nerve Stimulation (PTNS) using Urgent PC for treatment of overactive bladder (OAB) and associated symptoms of urinary urgency, urinary frequency and urge incontinence.  This increased coverage includes additional diagnostic codes as well as expansion of on-going therapy from 12 months to up to two years.

Novitas Solutions, Inc., a Medicare Administrative Contractor,  provides medical and drug benefits to approximately  11 million Medicare beneficiaries in the states of Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, District of Columbia, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Texas. Novitas has expanded patient access to PTNS by adding diagnosis codes that include frequency, urgency and urge incontinence, the hallmark symptoms of overactive bladder. Uroplasty estimates that PTNS coverage today has been extended to a total of approximately 140 million private coverage and Medicare beneficiaries.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:  The following table reconciles our operating loss calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. (GAAP) to non-GAAP financial measures that exclude non-cash charges for share-based compensation, and depreciation and amortization expenses from gross profit, operating expenses and operating loss.  The non-GAAP financial measures used by management and disclosed by us are not a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures and consolidated financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP, and you should carefully evaluate our reconciliations to non-GAAP.  We may calculate our non-GAAP financial measures differently from similarly titled measures used by other companies.  Therefore, our non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to those used by other companies.  We have described the reconciliations of each of our non-GAAP financial measures described above to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

We use these Non-GAAP financial measures, and in particular non-GAAP operating loss, for internal managerial purposes because we believe such measures are one important indicator of the strength and the operating performance of our business.  Analysts and investors frequently ask us for this information.  We believe that they use these measures to evaluate the overall operating performance of companies in our industry, including as a means of comparing period-to-period results and as a means of evaluating our results with those of other companies.

Our non-GAAP operating loss during the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 was approximately $1.5 million and $561,000, respectively.  The increase in non-GAAP operating loss for the three months ended June 30, 2013 over the corresponding period a year ago is attributed to the increase in operating spending, offset slightly by the increase in net sales and gross profit percent.
