Encision Reports First Quarter Fiscal Year 2023 Results

BOULDER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / August 9, 2022 / Encision Inc. (OTC PINK:ECIA), a medical device company owning patented Active Electrode Monitoring (AEM®) Technology that prevents dangerous radiant energy burns in minimally invasive surgery, today announced financial results for its fiscal year 2023 first quarter that ended June 30, 2022.

The Company posted quarterly net revenue of $2.15 million for a quarterly net income of $265 thousand, or $0.02 per diluted share. These results compare to net revenue of $2.01 million for a quarterly net loss of $7 thousand, or $0.00 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin on net revenue was 60% in the fiscal 2023 first quarter and 51% in the fiscal 2022 first quarter. Gross margin increased in the current year's first quarter compared to last year's first quarter due principally to higher service revenue gross margin.

"The first quarter presented significant challenges for Encision," said Gregory Trudel, President and CEO of Encision Inc. "During the first quarter of fiscal year 2023 and fiscal year 2022, COVID resurgences continued to impact procedure volumes. COVID has had, and will likely continue to have, an adverse impact on our procedure volumes. We continue to encounter supply chain issues and work tirelessly to deliver a steady mix of products to our customers who depend on us. Encision continues to be positive as we navigate the ups and downs of the pandemic market and the new-normal supply chain turmoil. We continuously look for opportunities to serve our customers with new products, to work smarter, and to drive increased efficiencies. In spite of limited customer access, our sales and marketing efforts are yielding new customers for our new EnTouchâ 2X Scissors and recently released AEM® Shield Disposable Electrodes. We look forward to the contributions that these new products will make as the market bounces back."

"Service revenue for our first quarter of fiscal year 2023 resulted from services performed under a Supply Agreement with Auris Health, Inc. ("Auris Health"), a part of the Johnson & Johnson family of companies. Under the agreement, Encision collaborated on the integration of AEM® Technology into monopolar instrumentation produced by Auris Health for advanced surgical applications. On August 23, 2021, we entered into a Supply Agreement with Auris Health. Towards the end of the first quarter business needs took a different direction and on May 5, 2022, the parties mutually agreed to terminate all the agreements. We enjoyed collaborating with the team at J&J and we look forward to future opportunities to work together."

Encision Inc. designs and markets a portfolio of high-performance surgical instrumentation that delivers advances in patient safety with AEM technology, surgical performance, and value to hospitals across a broad range of minimally invasive surgical procedures. Based in Boulder, Colorado, the company pioneered the development and deployment of Active Electrode Monitoring, AEM technology, to eliminate dangerous stray energy burns during minimally invasive procedures.
