“We continue to drive strong revenue growth and solid operational performance as we execute on our strategic objectives,” said Gary Maharaj, President & CEO of Surmodics. “The positive twelve-month data recently presented from PREVEIL, the early feasibility study of our SurVeil® DCB and the recent submission for first in-human study for our AV access DCB, AVess™, demonstrate meaningful progress towards our whole-products solutions initiatives.”

Total revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 was $23.0 million, as compared with $20.1 million in the prior-year period. Medical Device revenue was $17.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018, as compared with $14.7 million in the year-ago period, an increase of 15.4%, and includes $2.2 million from our SurVeil agreement with Abbott. In Vitro Diagnostics revenue was $6.1 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 as compared with $5.3 million in the same prior-year quarter, an increase of 13.4%.

Diluted GAAP loss per share in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 was $(0.13) as compared with diluted GAAP earnings per share of $0.03 in the year-ago period. On a non-GAAP basis, earnings per share were $0.05 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018, as compared with $0.18 in the year-ago period.

Safe Harbor for Forward-Looking Statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements. Statements that are not historical or current facts, including statements about beliefs and expectations regarding the Company’s performance in the near- and long-term, including our revenue and earnings expectations for fiscal 2019, and our SurVeil DCB and other proprietary products are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, and important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated, including (1) our ability to successfully develop, obtain regulatory approval for, and commercialize our SurVeil DCB (including realization of the full potential benefits of our agreement with Abbott), and other proprietary products; (2) our reliance on third parties (including our customers and licensees) and their failure to successfully develop, obtain regulatory approval for, market and sell products incorporating our technologies; (3) possible adverse market conditions and possible adverse impacts on our cash flows, and (4) the factors identified under “Risk Factors” in Part I, Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2017, and updated in our subsequent reports filed with the SEC. These reports are available in the Investors section of our website at https://surmodics.gcs-web.com and at the SEC website at www.sec.gov. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and we undertake no obligation to update them in light of new information or future events.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, Surmodics is reporting non-GAAP financial results including EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP operating (loss) income, non-GAAP income before income taxes, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, and the non-GAAP effective income tax rate. We believe that these non-GAAP measures, when read in conjunction with the Company’s GAAP financial statements, provide meaningful insight into our operating performance excluding certain event-specific matters, and provide an alternative perspective of our results of operations. We use non-GAAP measures, including those set forth in this release, to assess our operating performance and to determine payout under our executive compensation programs. We believe that presentation of certain non-GAAP measures allows investors to review our results of operations from the same perspective as management and our board of directors and facilitates comparisons of our current results of operations. The method we use to produce non-GAAP results is not in accordance with GAAP and may differ from the methods used by other companies. Non-GAAP results should not be regarded as a substitute for corresponding GAAP measures but instead should be utilized as a supplemental measure of operating performance in evaluating our business. Non-GAAP measures do have limitations in that they do not reflect certain items that may have a material impact on our reported financial results. As such, these non-GAAP measures should be viewed in conjunction with both our financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP and the reconciliation of the supplemental non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP results provided for the specific periods presented, which are attached to this release.

(1)   Represents accounting adjustments to state acquisition-related contingent consideration liabilities at their estimated fair value, including accretion for the passage of time as well as adjustments to the liabilities’ fair values related to changes in the timing and/or probability of achieving milestones. The tables include contingent consideration liability adjustments in each respective historical period and do not include in future-period fair value changes, other than estimated accretion expense as determined at the end of the current quarter. These amounts are not taxable or tax deductible.
(2)   Foreign exchange gains and losses are related to marking non-U.S. dollar contingent consideration to period-end exchange rates. The tables include foreign currency exchange loss or gain recorded in each respective historical period and do not include forecasted currency fluctuations in future periods. These gains and losses are not taxable or tax deductible.
(3)   Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets and associated tax impact. A significant portion of the acquisition-related amortization is not tax deductible.
(4)   Represents the gain recognized on the sale of a strategic investment which was not tax-affected as it was offset by previously recognized capital losses.
(5)   Income tax expense from the re-measurement of net deferred tax assets recognized after the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in December 2017.
(6)   Represents an estimated royalty-related customer claim settlement accrued in the second quarter of fiscal 2018 and associated tax impact.
(7)   Represents the acquisition of the Embolitech in-process research and development assets during the third quarter of fiscal 2018 and associated tax impact.
(8)   Impairment of indefinite-lived intangible assets which were not tax deductible.
(9)   Options to purchase common stock as well as unvested restricted stock and performance stock units are considered to be potentially dilutive common shares but have been excluded from the calculation of GAAP net loss per share as their effect is anti-dilutive for three months and year ended September 30, 2018 as a result of the net loss for those periods on a GAAP basis. However, as the Non-GAAP adjustments result in Non-GAAP net income, the dilutive effect of these options and other outstanding stock awards have been included in the calculation of Non-GAAP earnings per share. Accordingly, Diluted EPS includes these adjustments.
(10)   Net (loss) income includes the effect of the above adjustments on the income tax provision, taking into account deferred taxes and non-deductible items. Effective rates of 24.5% (fiscal 2018) and between 34-35% (fiscal 2017) were used to estimate the income tax impact of the adjustments, except that expenses occurring in Ireland have not been tax-affected as all tax benefits are offset by a full valuation allowance and acquired in-process research and development, which will be deductible at a 21% statutory tax rate.
