Vasomedical Inc. (VASO) Announces Financial Results for the Second Quarter of 2013


8/14/2013 6:21:01 AM

Regeneron may be hiring! Check it out! (Isn't it tempting?)

WESTBURY, N.Y., Aug. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Vasomedical, Inc. ("Vasomedical") (OTC BB: VASO) today reported its operating results for the three months ended June 30, 2013.

"We are pleased by the continued growth reported for the second quarter of 2013, mostly attributable to the increased activity in our sales representation business in the U.S. and our operations in China," stated Dr. Jun Ma, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vasomedical, Inc. "We are encouraged by the success of our diversification and growth strategy, and look forward to seeing our efforts through to fruition in all aspects of our business."

"Looking ahead, we will continue to implement the Company's growth strategy by expanding the sales teams for each of our subsidiaries and looking to develop new services and product lines. These investments have already had an early impact on our results establishing a solid foundation from which to drive future growth. While it is still early in the process, we believe these investments will have a positive impact on a long-term basis."

"As previously announced, we initiated a share repurchase program in April, which we believe provides a strong vote of confidence to the investment community. As of July 30, 2013, we had acquired approximately 8 million shares of the Company's common stock. Our board of directors recently increased the buyback program by $500,000, for a total of $2 million. This program is part of our multi-pronged strategy to build shareholder value," concluded Dr. Ma.

Three Months Ended June 30, 2013 Financial Results

For the three months ended June 30, 2013, revenue increased 3% to $7.9 million from $7.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012. This is primarily attributable to an increase in commission revenue recognized from our Sales Representation business in the second quarter of 2013, as a result of an increase in volume of equipment delivered by GEHC.

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2013 was $5.4 million, compared to a gross profit of $5.5 million for the second quarter of 2012. The decrease is primarily due to a decrease in the sales representation segment margin, offset by an increase in equipment segment margin. The equipment segment gross margin increased to 62.9% for the three months ended June 30, 2013 from 56.7% for the same period in 2012. The decrease in the margin in the sales representation segment is due to the lower commission rate on GEHC orders received in 2012 and delivered in 2013. We anticipate that these margins will improve in the second half of 2013 as we expect to achieve a higher commission rate on 2013 orders.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses for the second quarter of 2013 were $5.7 million compared to $5.3 million for the same period last year. The increase in SG&A expenditures in the second quarter of 2013 resulted primarily from increased costs associated with the expansion of the Equipment segment sales team of approximately $200,000, as well as $140,000 higher costs in the Sales Representation segment, of which $76,000 are non-recurring costs associated with the extension of our GEHC contract.

Net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2013 was $537,000, or $0.00 per basic and diluted common share, compared to net income of $54,000, or $0.00 per basic and diluted common share, for the three months ended June 30, 2012.

Cash flow from operations for the six months ended June 30, 2013 was $336,000. We continue to maintain a strong financial position with a cash balance of $11.6 million at June 30, 2013.
