MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- IRIDEX Corporation (Nasdaq: IRIX) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 29, 2014.
- Revenues were $10.3 million in the first quarter of 2014, up 16% from $8.9 million in the 2013 first quarter.
- Gross margin for the quarter was 48.9%, up from 47.3% in the first quarter of last year.
- Operating income in the 2014 first quarter was $0.6 million compared with operating income of $0.9 million in last year's first quarter, which included a one-time gain of $0.5 million from the demutualization of our insurance carrier.
- Net income was $0.5 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2014, compared to net income in last year's first quarter, which included the one-time insurance gain, of $0.9 million, or $0.09 per diluted share.
- Guidance for second quarter of 2014: The Company expects to achieve revenue of $10.3 million to $10.6 million, representing growth of 12% to 15% over last year's second quarter. Gross margin is anticipated to come in between 48% and 50%, operating expenses are expected to be $4.4 million to $4.6 million.
President and CEO Will Moore said, "We had another excellent quarter of double-digit growth and continue to see strong demand for our products in the marketplace, both in the U.S. and internationally. Excluding the one-time gain we recorded this time last year, our 16% year over year revenue growth drove a 41% increase in operating income from the prior year quarter. I believe this demonstrates the leverage we have in our business.
Mr. Moore continued, "Our innovative, proprietary, tissue-sparing MicroPulse technology continues to prove itself clinically in terms of efficacy, durability and safety as a treatment for a variety of ophthalmic disorders, all with large and growing domestic and international markets. The demand for MicroPulse is consistent with the demand for value-based medicine solutions on a worldwide basis. More specifically in the US as the healthcare business model shifts away from a fee for service model, we believe MicroPulse with its comparable outcomes at a lower cost to society should drive revenue growth for the foreseeable future."
During the first quarter 2014, the Company continued to execute its share repurchase program buying approximately 40,000 shares at an average price of $8.69 and had approximately $2.2 million remaining available for stock purchases.
