ALBANY, N.Y., Sept. 28, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AngioDynamics (NASDAQ:ANGO), a leading provider of innovative, minimally invasive medical devices for vascular access, surgery, peripheral vascular disease and oncology, today reported first quarter financial results for the 2018 fiscal year ended August 31, 2017.
“The first quarter of fiscal 2018 reflects early results of our commitment to improving our core operational efficiency and strengthening our business,” said Jim Clemmer, President and Chief Executive Officer of AngioDynamics. “Sales for our Oncology/Surgery business saw an 11 percent increase over last year, primarily driven by Solero, which received FDA clearance during the fiscal 2017 fourth quarter. In addition, we saw strong sales from other areas of our business, including Fluid Management, Thrombus Management, the BioFlo family of products and NanoKnife disposables. We remain committed to our strategic plan and will continue to invest in the right areas to drive sustainable, long-term growth.”
First Quarter 2018 Financial Results
Net sales for the fiscal first quarter were $85.4 million, down 3 percent compared to $88.1 million a year ago primarily related to our Core/Angiographic Catheter business. During the same period of the 2017 fiscal year, we saw a $4.0 million increase in sales as a result of the inventory build by our customers related to a previously disclosed competitor product recall. Currency did not have an impact in the quarter.
Peripheral Vascular net sales in the first quarter were $49.9 million, down from $52.0 million in the fiscal year 2017 first quarter as a result of declines in the Venous and Core businesses, offset by growth in Fluid Management and Thrombus Management. Vascular Access net sales were $23.2 million in the first quarter, down from $25.0 million a year ago as a result of declines of non-BioFlo products, offset by growth in the BioFlo family of products. First quarter Oncology/Surgery net sales were $12.3 million, up from $11.1 million in the fiscal year 2017 first quarter, primarily due to sales related to the recently launched Solero Microwave Tissue Ablation System.
Overall U.S. net sales in the first quarter were $68.9 million, down from $72.2 million a year ago due to declines in Venous and Core businesses, offset by growth in the Oncology portfolio. Overall International net sales in the first quarter were $16.5 million, up from $15.9 million a year ago due to increased sales across the Oncology/Surgery business.
The Company recorded a net loss of less than one hundred thousand dollars, or $0.00 on a per share basis in the first quarter of fiscal 2018. The Company recorded net income of $1.3 million, or $0.04 on a per share basis, in the first quarter of fiscal 2017.
