Encision Reports Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2023 Results

BOULDER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / June 22, 2023 / Encision Inc. (PK:ECIA), a medical device company owning patented Active Electrode Monitoring (AEMĀ®) Technology that prevents dangerous radiant energy burns in minimally invasive surgery, today announced financial results for its fiscal 2023 fourth quarter that ended March 31, 2023.

The Company posted quarterly net revenue of $1.81 million for a quarterly net loss of $93 thousand, or $(0.01) per diluted share. These results compare to net revenue of $1.60 million for a quarterly net loss of $403 thousand, or $(0.03) per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin on net revenue was 56% in the fiscal 2023 fourth quarter and 50% in the fiscal 2022 fourth quarter. Gross margin increased in the current year's fourth quarter compared to last year's fourth quarter due principally to higher operating efficiencies and increased selling prices.

The Company posted twelve months net revenue of $7.35 million for a twelve months net loss of $324 thousand, or $(0.03) per diluted share. These results compare to twelve months net revenue of $7.67 million for a twelve months net loss of $66 thousand, or $(0.01) per diluted share, in the year-ago twelve months. Net loss included extinguishment of debt income of $533 thousand in the year-ago twelve months. Gross margin on net revenue was 55% in the fiscal 2023 twelve months and 49% in the fiscal 2022 twelve months. Gross margin in the fiscal 2022 twelve months was lower due to higher material costs.

"Fiscal 2023 presented significant challenges for us and for the medical device market in general," said Gregory Trudel, President and CEO of Encision Inc. "The company navigated through the ups and downs of the market demand curve as a result of COVID slowdowns and a shortage of healthcare workers. We used that time to strengthen our sales channel and to drive new product development that will deliver benefits in fiscal 2024. We were also able to initiate new collaborative opportunities that will be fruitful for us and our partners in fiscal 2024."
