Published: Aug 06, 2018

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- SurModics, Inc. (Nasdaq: SRDX), a leading provider of medical device and in vitro diagnostic technologies to the healthcare industry, today announced results for its fiscal 2018 third quarter ended June 30, 2018, and updated its financial outlook for fiscal 2018.

Summary of Third Quarter Fiscal 2018 and Recent Highlights

  • Revenue of $22.2 million, up 24.9%
  • Raising revenue guidance range to $79.0 to $81.0 million
  • GAAP EPS of ($0.20), Non-GAAP EPS of $0.27
  • Acquisition of thrombectomy platform strengthens product pipeline

“We are pleased to report strong operating performance and meaningful advances on our strategic objectives during the quarter,” said Gary Maharaj, President and CEO of Surmodics. “We are on track to complete enrollment in our TRANSCEND U.S. pivotal clinical trial in fiscal 2019. The acquisition of Embolitech’s promising thrombectomy technology platform leverages our unique capabilities and advances our focus on developing highly differentiated products.”

Third Quarter Fiscal 2018 Financial Results

Total revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 was $22.2 million, as compared with $17.8 million in the prior-year period. Medical Device revenue was $16.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2018, as compared with $12.8 million in the year-ago period, an increase of 30.7%, and includes $1.7 million from our SurVeil® agreement with Abbott. In Vitro Diagnostics revenue was $5.5 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2018 as compared with $5.0 million in the same prior-year quarter, an increase of 10.3%.

Diluted GAAP loss per share in the third quarter of fiscal 2018 was $(0.20) as compared with diluted GAAP earnings per share of $0.05 in the year-ago period. On a non-GAAP basis, earnings per share were $0.27 in the third quarter of fiscal 2018, as compared with $0.09 in the year-ago period. GAAP results were negatively affected by the current-quarter acquisition of in-process research and development assets from Embolitech, which resulted in a $0.47 charge in the period, after tax.

As of June 30, 2018, cash and investments were $62.4 million. Surmodics generated cash from operating activities of $29.2 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2018. Capital expenditures totaled $6.9 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2018.

Fiscal 2018 Guidance Revised

As a result of revenue performance in the first nine months of fiscal 2018 and to reflect the Embolitech technology acquisition, Surmodics is raising its fiscal 2018 revenue and non-GAAP earnings guidance, while narrowing its diluted GAAP earnings guidance. Surmodics expects fiscal year 2018 revenue to range from $79.0 million to $81.0 million, up from previous expectations in the range of $75.0 million to $79.0 million. The Company expects diluted loss in the range of ($0.25) to ($0.30) per share as compared with the prior guidance of ($0.20) to ($0.35) per share. Non-GAAP diluted earnings guidance now ranges from $0.39 to $0.44 per share as compared with prior guidance of ($0.06) to $0.09 per share.

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 2018, and our SurVeil DCB and other proprietary products, including the timing, impact and success of the TRANSCEND clinical trial, 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 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.

(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 as of June 30, 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.

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 the three and nine months ended June 30, 2018 and in our guidance for the year ended September 30, 2018 as a result of the net loss for these 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.

Net income (loss) 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 is calculated using a 21% effective tax rate.
