8/8/2012 12:06:26 PM

MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich., Aug. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- InfuSystem Holdings, Inc. (NYSE MKT: INFU) ("InfuSystem" or the "Company"), the leading national provider of infusion pumps and related services for the healthcare industry in the United States, today reported revenues for the quarter ending June 30, 2012, were $14.1 million, up 7% from $13.1 million in the second quarter of 2011. Total revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2012, were $28.4 million, a 9% improvement from $26.1 million in the 2011 period.

Gross profit for the three months ending June 30, 2012, was $10.3 million, up 14% from $9.0 million in second quarter of last year. Gross profit for the first six months of 2012 was $20.7 million, an increase of 15% compared to $18.0 million for the first six months of 2011.

The second quarter net loss was $0.8 million, equal to a $0.04 loss per diluted share, compared to the $27.9 million net loss, equal to a $1.32 loss per diluted share in the prior period. For the six months ended June 30, 2012, the Company's net loss was $1.7 million or $0.08 per diluted share, versus a net loss of $28.1 million or $1.33 per diluted share, for the year-ago period. One-time net expenses of $1.7 million and $3.2 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, hampered these results related, respectively, to the Settlement Agreement and Fifth Amendment, including debt extinguishment, as discussed below.

The Company achieved a number of annualized cost-savings actions totaling in excess of $1 million in the second quarter, which also saw the installation of a new board and executive management team.

"We have made important financial and operational progress," said Interim Chief Executive Officer Dilip Singh. "Eliminating unnecessary management positions and reducing board cash compensation contributed significantly to the $1 million-plus in annual savings. We expect to see additional cost-saving initiatives introduced in the third quarter. At the same time, our management team and employees are focused on revenue growth."

Mr. Singh added that these initial improvements represent the beginning of a broad strategic effort to deliver long-term growth and profitability. "We will continue to concentrate our efforts on maximizing cash generation with EBITDA for sustained financial stability, while growing market share in our core markets. Organic growth prospects remain strong. Feedback from our customers, channels, and partners has been very positive. They appreciate our commitment to further enhance customer service solutions that make their jobs easier."

Operating Results
The 7% increase in revenues compared to the second quarter of 2011 and the 9% increase for the six months ended June 30, 2012, are primarily related to the addition of new customers with larger patient bases, increased penetration into our existing customer accounts, and the cessation of the 2011 oncology drug shortage affecting certain products.

The $10.3 million in gross profit recorded in the second quarter of 2012 represented 73% of revenues for the current period compared with 68% in the prior year's period. For the first half of 2012, the $20.7 million in gross profit represented 73% of revenues compared to 69% for the same period last year. This increase in the gross margin percentage was primarily related to lower pump depreciation and a higher mix of pump rentals as compared to pump sales and services.

Selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A") for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 were $10.2 million, significantly lower than the prior period's $52.4 million. For the six months ended June 30, 2012, SG&A was $21.2 million compared with $61.2 million for the same period last year. The drop in SG&A is due to prior years' numbers contained a charge for asset impairment of $44.2 million. Excluding non-cash impairment charges, SG&A increased $2.1 million for the quarter and $4.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012.

For the quarter, the major factors contributing to the increase in SG&A were expenses of $1.4 million related primarily to legal fees and $1.0 million of severance costs associated with the Settlement Agreement. SG&A experienced an increase primarily, compared to the prior periods, in selling compensation and travel costs and an increase in our finance and accounting staffs. These SG&A costs were partially offset by the reversal of previously recognized stock compensation expense of $1.3 million associated with the Settlement Agreement. With regard to the first half of 2012, the increase in SG&A related primarily to $2.3 million in legal expenses, the aforementioned $1.0 million in severance costs and $0.6 million in retention payments to key employees net of the aforementioned $1.3 million reversal of stock compensation expense. The Settlement Agreement is described in the 8-K the Company filed on April 26. Additional increases in SG&A relate mainly to an increase in selling costs due to higher retention and travel costs.

During the second quarter of fiscal 2012, the Company entered into the Fifth Amendment to its Credit Facility, which resulted in one-time charge for an extinguishment of debt. Previously capitalized debt issuance costs of $0.3 million and $0.3 million of certain payments made to secure the Fifth Amendment are shown as an extinguishment of debt for the period.

EBITDA for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 was $1.6 million compared with $3.2 million a year ago, excluding asset impairment charges. For the six months ended June 30, 2012, EBITDA was $3.2 million, compared with $5.6 million for the same period in 2011, excluding asset impairment charges. Excluding the one-time fees associated with the Settlement Agreement and the Fifth Amendment described above, EBITDA for 2012 would have been $3.3 million and $6.4 million, respectively. A Non-GAAP reconciliation from net income can be found in the appendix.

Financial Condition
Net cash provided by operations for the six months ended June 30, 2012, was $3.7 million, compared to $2.9 million in the prior-year period. The latest quarter's results reflected increased professional fees associated with the concerned stockholder group and employee compensation costs. In addition, the Company reported capital expenditures of $1.7 million, a decrease of $0.7 million compared to the prior-year period. The Company had available $3.0 million on its $5.0 million revolving credit facility. During the quarter, the Company reduced its draw under its revolving credit facility by $0.6 million in addition to the normal quarterly payment on its $19.6 million in long-term debt. The Company ended the quarter with $0.8 million of cash compared to none in the previous quarter.
