Surmodics Reports Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2017 Results and Provides Fiscal 2018 Guidance

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 8, 2017-- 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 2017 fourth quarter, ended September 30, 2017 and financial outlook for fiscal 2018.

Recent Highlights

  • First Patient Enrolled in TRANSCEND Pivotal Clinical Trial for SurVeil® Drug-Coated Balloon
  • Global Approvals of .014" Low-Profile PTA Balloon Dilation Catheter
  • Q4 2017 Revenue of $20.1 Million, up 10.5%
  • EPS of $0.03, Non-GAAP EPS of $0.18

“We are pleased with the execution of our whole-product solutions strategy with the recently announced first patient enrolled in TRANSCEND, the pivotal clinical trial for the SurVeil® drug-coated balloon (DCB), and global approvals of our .014" Low-Profile PTA Balloon Dilation Catheter,” said Gary Maharaj, President & CEO of Surmodics. “We have made meaningful advancements on several key development and clinical initiatives through our fiscal 2017 and look forward to expanding on those achievements in fiscal 2018. Further, our fourth fiscal quarter was marked by strong revenue growth and operational execution across our business.”

Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2017 Financial Results
Total revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 was $20.1 million, as compared with $18.2 million in the prior-year period.

Medical Device revenue was $14.7 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017, as compared with $13.7 million the year-ago period, an increase of 7.5%. In Vitro Diagnostics revenue was $5.3 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 as compared with $4.5 million in the same prior-year quarter, an increase of 19.8%.

Diluted GAAP earnings per share in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 were $0.03 as compared with $0.20 in the year-ago period. On a non-GAAP basis, earnings per share were $0.18 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 versus $0.26 last year. The decrease in earnings per share in the current quarter period reflects previously announced increased investments in research, development and other operating expenses to support the Company’s whole-product solutions strategy, including the SurVeil DCB and other proprietary products as well as lower hydrophilic royalty revenue, partially offset by a $1.1 million license fee earned in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017.

As of September 30, 2017, cash and investments were $48.3 million. Surmodics generated cash from operating activities of $14.1 million in fiscal 2017. Capital expenditures totaled $6.4 million for fiscal 2017.

Fiscal 2018 Outlook
Surmodics expects fiscal year 2018 revenue to range from $72.0 million to $75.0 million. The Company expects diluted loss in the range of $0.50 to $0.75 per share, which reflects the Company’s commitment to accelerate execution of its whole-product solutions strategy with increased research and development investments. Non-GAAP diluted loss is expected to be in the range of $0.16 to $0.41 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, 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) our ability to successfully identify, acquire, and integrate target companies, and achieve expected benefits from acquisitions that are consummated; (4) possible adverse market conditions and possible adverse impacts on our cash flows, and (5) 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, 2016, and updated in our subsequent reports filed with the SEC. These reports are available in the Investors section of our website at www.surmodics.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 non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP income before income taxes, non-GAAP net income, EBITDA and non-GAAP diluted net income per share, and the non-GAAP effective 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 which trigger payment. 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 determined at the end of the current quarter.
(2) Foreign exchange gain and loss 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.
(3) Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets and associated tax impact.
(4) Represents the gain recognized on the sale of strategic investments.
(5) Impairment of indefinite-lived intangible assets.
(6) Represents a discrete income tax benefit associated with the December 2015 signing of the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015, which retroactively reinstated federal R&D income tax credits for calendar 2015.
(7) Represents acquisition-related costs, including due diligence and integration expenses. Due diligence and other fees include legal, tax, investment banker and other expenses associated with acquisitions that can be highly variable and not representative of on-going operations. Most of these costs were not deductible for income tax purposes.
(8) Net income includes the effect of the above adjustments on the income tax provision, taking into account deferred taxes and non-deductible items. An effective rate between 34-35% was 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.
