MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cogentix Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ: CGNT), a global medical device company focused on providing the Urology, Uro/Gyn and Gynecology markets with innovative and proprietary products, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Second Quarter and Business Development Highlights

  • Second quarter revenue was $14.1 million, including $12.3 million in Urology product revenue. Urology product revenue, representing 87% of total revenue, increased 11% over last year's second quarter and 12% on a constant currency basis. Total Company revenue for the second quarter increased 8% over the prior year period and 9% on a constant currency basis.
  • Gross profit was $9.4 million or 66.9%, a $0.5 million increase over the prior year period.
  • GAAP operating income was $0.4 million in the second quarter, compared to a GAAP operating loss of $2.3 million in the year ago quarter.
  • Cash operating profit, a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes non-cash items, was $1.5 million in the second quarter, an increase of $0.7 million when compared to the cash operating profit of $0.8 million in the second quarter of 2016.
  • The Company continues to evaluate strategic alternatives for its non-core Industrial and Airway Management product lines.
  • In July, the Company announced completion of two business development transactions expected to add approximately 10 points of urology products revenue growth in 2018.

"Cogentix achieved another quarter of double-digit organic revenue growth from our core Urology business," said Darin Hammers, President and CEO. "This growth was driven by impressive results from our PrimeSight product line, which grew 48% in the quarter, as our physician customers continue to embrace the always ready, always sterile value proposition PrimeSight offers.  Unit sales of our Urgent® PC product line grew 5% in the United States during the second quarter, and the average selling price was consistent with the last several quarters.  Our sales and marketing team continues to perform at a high level, and we have decided to expand our US sales force by five territories during the third quarter.  As a result, we anticipate second half 2017 revenue growth for our Urology business will be above the 11% growth we generated in the first half of the year. Additionally, the two business development agreements we recently executed should add approximately 10 points of growth to urology products revenue in 2018 as these agreements leverage our strong sales and marketing organization. With $27 approximately million in cash and investments, and no debt on our balance sheet, we are continuing to evaluate other business development opportunities so that we can further enhance our growth profile while building value for shareholders."

For the quarter ended June 30, 2017, the Company achieved total revenue of $14.1 million compared to $13.0 million in the year ago quarter.
