MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich., May 21, 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 results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012.
Revenues for the quarter ending March 31, 2012 were $14.3 million, up 11% from $13.0 million in the first quarter of 2011. Gross profit for the three months ending March 31, 2012 was $10.4 million, up 15% from $9.1 million in first quarter of last year. First quarter net loss was $0.9 million, equal to $0.04 loss per diluted share, compared to $0.2 million net loss, equal to $0.01 income per diluted share in the prior period.
Ryan Morris, the newly appointed Executive Chairman, said the first quarter results provide a solid foundation for the new management team that took office in late April, and whose strategy for achieving growth and increasing shareholder value should begin to be reflected in subsequent quarterly results. Since mid-March, the Company has welcomed the arrival of Interim Chief Executive Officer Dilip Singh, Chief Financial Officer Jonathan P. Foster, as well as five new Board members.
"It's been a very eventful quarter for the Company and I am proud that our employees and operational management continued the top line revenue growth while these Board and management changes took place," Morris said.
The new management team has already begun building on those efforts, starting first with a series of operational improvements, integration of past acquisitions to generate new synergies for the Company and cost-savings initiatives some of which will be announced soon and some of which are already underway.
Interim Chief Executive Officer Dilip Singh said these operational improvements are just the first steps the Company will implement as part of a broader strategy to achieve long-term growth. "Our initial focus is to maximize cash generation with EBITDA for sustained financial stability while achieving growth by continuing to take market share in our core markets. Over the long-term, we see significant, recurring opportunity for organic growth, notably by enhancing customer service solutions that make it easier for our various partners, channels and customers to rent, lease or buy new and reconditioned pumps with just in time inventory; entering other vertical medical markets disciplines; and, in time, expanding our franchise model globally."
The 11% increase in revenues relative to the first quarter of 2011 is primarily related to the addition of new customers with larger patient bases, increased penetration into our existing customer accounts and the resolution of the oncology drug shortage affecting certain products.
The $10.4 million in gross profit recorded in the first quarter of 2012 represented 73% of revenues for the current period compared with 70% percent in the prior year's period. The increase in the gross margin percentage was primarily related to lower pump depreciation and a higher mix of third party billings as compared to pump sales, rentals and services.
Selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 were $10.9 million, 24 percent higher than the prior period's $8.8 million. As a percent of revenues, SG&A was 76 percent compared to 62 percent for the prior fiscal year (excluding non-cash impairment charges). The major factors contributing to the increase of $2.1 million in SG&A were expenses of $1.5 million related primarily to legal fees and other costs associated with activities related to negotiating and entering into a settlement agreement with a concerned stockholder group and a fifth amendment to the Company's credit facility. The settlement agreement and fifth amendment to the credit facility are described in the 8-K the Company filed on April 26th. Additional related fees and expenses are expected in the second quarter of 2012.
EBITDA for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 was $1.6 million compared to $2.4 million a year ago. Excluding the one-time fees associated with the activities described above, EBITDA would have been $3.1 million. A Non-GAAP reconciliation from net income can be found in the appendix.
Net cash provided by operations for the first quarter ending March 31, 2012 was $0.1 million, compared to $2.1 million in the prior 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 $1.2 million, a decrease of $1.2 million compared to the prior period. The cash balance decreased by $3.2 million from the comparable period in the prior year due to issues noted herein and the Company ended the quarter with no cash on the balance sheet due to outstanding payments. The Company had $2.5 million drawn as of March 31, 2012, on its $5.0 million revolving credit facility. During the quarter, the Company continued to make the required payments on its $21.0 million in long-term debt.
The Company will host a conference call to share the results of its first quarter fiscal 2012 results on Tuesday, May 22, at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time. Dilip Singh, Interim Chief Executive Officer, and Jonathan P. Foster, Chief Financial Officer, will discuss the Company's financial performance and answer questions from the financial community.
