Uroplasty Reports Fiscal First Quarter Results ~ Urgent PC Sales Up 19% in Fiscal First Quarter

~~Fiscal 2015 Guidance Reaffirmed

MINNEAPOLIS, July 24, 2014 /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 2015 first quarter ended June 30, 2014. 

Global revenue for the Company's Urgent® PC Neuromodulation System grew 19% to $4.1 million, as compared to $3.4 million in the first quarter of the prior year.  Total revenue for the fiscal first quarter of 2015 was $6.4 million, up 9% from the same quarter in the prior year. 

"First quarter results met our overall expectations, and we are reaffirming our full-year guidance today for Fiscal 2015," said Rob Kill, President and Chief Executive Officer of Uroplasty.  "Global Urgent PC revenue exceeded our expectations, with stronger than expected growth in our international business.  Macroplastique revenue was down slightly in the quarter, yet we continue to expect that for the full year, revenue from this product line will be similar to the past fiscal year.  Continued improvement in sales force productivity, the expansion of our clinical support team to twelve individuals from the current six and our development of additional distribution channels are expected to drive Urgent PC sales growth as we look forward.  At the same time, we continue to invest in our fecal incontinence clinical development program and are examining strategies to provide our sales organization with additional products that meet the unmet needs of our customer base," continued Mr. Kill. 

The Company generated a gross margin of 87.6% in the recent fiscal first quarter compared with 87.2% in the same quarter a year ago.  Operating expenses for the period totaled $7.8 million compared to $6.7 million in the same quarter last year.  Selling, general and administrative costs increased $0.7 million primarily due to full staffing of the sales team in the current quarter as well as the expense related to the six clinical specialists the Company added throughout the prior fiscal year.  R&D costs increased $0.4 million due to higher clinical study activity as well as certain one-time costs related to management changes in the current quarter.

The operating loss of $2.2 million in the fiscal first quarter compares with a $1.6 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 $1.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2015, compared with a $1.5 million non-GAAP operating loss in the year ago period. At June 30, 2014, cash, cash equivalents and cash investments totaled $10.6 million.

For the full-year Fiscal 2015 the Company continues to expect revenue growth in the range of nine to twelve percent, approximately fifteen percent growth in global Urgent PC sales, and slightly higher gross margins on a year-over-year basis.

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, depreciation and amortization 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, 2014 and 2013 was approximately $1,778,000 and $1,499,000 respectively.  The increase in non-GAAP operating loss for the three months ended June 30, 2014 over the corresponding period a year ago is attributed to the increase in operating costs, partially offset by the increase in net sales and gross profit.
