IRVINE, Calif., March 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Cardiogenesis Corporation (OTCQB: CGCP), a leading developer of surgical products used in the treatment of diffuse coronary artery disease, today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2010.
Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $2,864,000, a 9% decrease from prior year fourth quarter revenue of $3,132,000. For full year 2010, revenue was $11,290,000, an increase of 9% over revenue of $10,354,000 in 2009. The company reported a net loss of $558,000, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2010 as compared with net income of $409,000, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share, in the prior year fourth quarter.
"The company posted a solid performance for both the fourth quarter and full year as our sales organization made the case for TMR and increased product utilization. Fourth quarter revenues were negatively impacted by lower capital equipment sales as compared to 2009. In addition the fourth quarter of 2009 included $218,000 of handpiece revenue previously deferred under accounting rules. Excluding the impact of that non-recurring, deferred revenue, handpiece revenue increased 13% in fourth quarter 2010 over the prior period," said Cardiogenesis Executive Chairman Paul McCormick. "Continued revenue growth of our commercial products has allowed us to finance significant progress on our clinical and regulatory initiatives. We enrolled two additional patients in our PHOENIX Combination Delivery System clinical feasibility trial, and our team will be in Europe in the upcoming weeks to perform additional procedures. Moreover we are in the final phase of our animal safety study at the Texas Heart Institute (THI). This is important because the THI report is a gating item for our submission to the FDA to obtain regulatory clearance to begin a human trial for the PHOENIX System in the U.S. The PHOENIX System combines the intramyocardial delivery of stem cells with pre-treatment by TMR. PHOENIX represents an exciting proprietary growth opportunity for our Company."
The operating loss for 2010 totaled $1,439,000 as compared with an operating loss of $1,118,000 for full year 2009. The net loss for 2010 was totaled $1,282,000, or $0.03 per basic and diluted share, as compared with a net loss of $1,234,000, or $0.03 per basic and diluted share, for 2009.
Handpiece revenue for the fourth quarter of 2010 increased $38,000, or 2%, to $2,172,000 as compared to $2,134,000 in the 2009 fourth quarter as a result of both higher unit sales and average selling prices. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2010, handpiece revenue increased by $980,000, or 13%, to $8,637,000 from handpiece revenue of $7,657,000 in 2009.
