Encision Reports Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2021 Results

BOULDER, Colo., May 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Encision Inc. (PK: ECIA), a medical device company owning patented Active Electrode Monitoring (AEM®) Technology that prevents dangerous stray electrosurgical burns in minimally invasive surgery, today announced financial results for its fiscal 2021 fourth quarter that ended March 31, 2021.

The Company posted quarterly net revenue of $2.15 million for a quarterly net income of $116 thousand, or $0.01 per diluted share. These results compare to net revenue of $1.78 million for a quarterly net loss of $116 thousand, or $(0.01) per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin on net revenue was 54% in the fiscal 2021 fourth quarter and 53% in the fiscal 2020 fourth quarter.

The Company posted twelve months net revenue of $7.54 million for a twelve months net income of $585 thousand, or $0.05 per diluted share. Net income included $599 thousand of extinguishment of debt income. These results compare to net revenue of $7.67 million for a twelve months net loss of $198 thousand, or $(0.02) per diluted share, in the year-ago twelve months. Gross margin on net revenue was 52% in the fiscal 2021 and fiscal 2020 twelve months.

"Product revenue for our fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 had almost rebounded from pre-COVID surgical procedures levels and increased 8% from our fourth quarter of last year. Total revenue, which included service revenue, increased 21% from our fourth quarter of last year," said Gregory Trudel, President and CEO of Encision Inc. "We continue to be positive as we assess how surgery rebounds from the pandemic. We continue to flex our channel strategy and tactics as we encounter varying degrees of access to our customers."

"Service revenue for our fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 resulted from services performed under a Master Services Agreement with Auris Health, Inc. ("Auris Health"), a part of the Johnson & Johnson family of companies. Under the agreement, we are collaborating on the integration of AEM Technology into monopolar instrumentation produced by Auris Health for advanced surgical applications. This work is ongoing and is reported separately, as service revenue, in our Statement of Operations."

"During the fiscal year, we began selling our AEM 2X enTouch® Scissors ("2X Scissors"). 2X Scissors bring new levels of performance and value to the surgical scissor market by combining the best in class performance of our enTouch Disposable Scissors with the economy of a multi-use device. 2X Scissors are a game-changing product that will have a significant impact on the disposable laparoscopic scissor market. Our enTouch Disposable Scissors have long been the surgeon preferred product because of their sharpness and micro-serrations. Our new 2X Scissors provide all those benefits at half the cost per use and reduce hospital waste and the impact on the environment as well. The new thermochromic technology integrated into 2X Scissors lets a hospital know when to replace the scissors with new ones and makes tracking their use simple and easy. Superior performance, superior value, easy to use, and easy on the environment – that's what customers want in a disposable scissor. 2X Scissors work perfectly with hot AEM dissection and are also priced to be used for cold dissection. 2X Scissors will open new use segments for us and create an opportunity for customers to standardize on our entire portfolio of Active Electrode Monitoring (AEM®) products."

"In February, we entered into an unsecured promissory note under the Paycheck Protection Program ("PPP") for a principal amount of $533,118. Under the terms of the CARES Act, a PPP loan recipient may apply for, and be granted, forgiveness for all or a portion of loans granted under the PPP. Such forgiveness will be determined based upon the use of loan proceeds for payroll costs, rent and utility costs, and the maintenance of employee and compensation levels. We expect that we will achieve the requirements for forgiveness of that note."

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.
