12% Revenue Growth in The 2nd Quarter 2016 Over 2nd Quarter 2015
RICHLAND, Wash., Feb. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — IsoRay, Inc. (NYSE MKT: ISR), a medical technology company and innovator in seed brachytherapy and medical radioisotope applications for the treatment of prostate, brain, lung, head and neck and gynecological cancers, today announced its financial results for the second quarter and six months of fiscal 2016, which ended December 31, 2015.
Revenue was $1.19 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2016, which ended December 31, 2015, a 12% increase compared to $1.07 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2015, which ended December 31, 2014. Operating expenses were $1.44 million compared to $0.98 million in the second quarter of last fiscal year. Operating loss was $1.41 million compared to $1.02 million loss in the comparable period of the last fiscal year. The increased operating loss for the quarter is attributed to an increase in legal costs of approximately $0.2 million and accrual of $0.3 million for CEO severance costs. The increased legal costs are a result of the Company’s defense of its pending class action lawsuit. By the end of the second quarter of fiscal 2016, the Company had incurred all but approximately $40k of its self-insurance retention to defend this lawsuit, and once these amounts have been paid, all future costs are expected to be paid out of the Company’s directors and officers insurance coverage. IsoRay had cash and cash equivalents and certificates of deposits of $17.76 million as of December 31, 2015 and no debt.
Revenue was $2.45 million for the six months ended December 31, 2015, a 16% increase compared to $2.11 million for the six months ended December 31, 2014. Operating expenses were $2.61 million compared to $2.09 million in the six months ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively. Operating loss was $2.50 million compared to $2.18 million loss in the six months ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The increased operating loss for the six month period ended December 31, 2015 is attributed to an increase in legal costs of approximately $ .2 million and $.3 million related to CEO severance costs. These increases in costs are considered non-recurring expenses.
In January 2016, the Company announced Thomas LaVoy, Chairman of the Board, will assume the position of IsoRay’s Chief Executive Officer. Mr. LaVoy will take office effective February 15, 2016. Mr. LaVoy stated, “I am pleased to have been appointed by the Board of Directors to lead IsoRay to the next level of growth. We have a strong balance sheet on which we will build. I have met with the management team, and beginning February 16, 2016 we will begin a complete, top to bottom, 90 day strategic review of the entire Company. During that period, the team will determine the best allocation of resources to coincide with our growth strategy. We intend to revise our sales, marketing and communications platforms while aligning all parts of our business. In addition, we will determine if we need to create and fill additional positions to ensure the most effective and efficient operation of IsoRay.”
Mr. LaVoy added, “The use of our Cesium-131 brachytherapy seeds continues to attract the interest of the medical community. Three peer reviewed studies that focused on brain surgery, one in Neurosurgery and two in the Journal of Neuro-Oncology, have been released since mid-December 2015. These studies, published in two of the leading scientific journals in this field, presented discussions on: the excellent response rates with minimal toxicity, dose homogeneity and minimizing the risk of radiation induced injury, and the cost effectiveness of Cesium-131 in intraoperative brachytherapy. We look forward to additional scientific papers and publications that apprise members of the medical community on the significance of brachytherapy using Cesium-131 seeds.”
Mr. LaVoy concluded, “The IsoRay team was pleased to staff an exhibition booth to raise the visibility of our Cesium-131 seeds during the 52nd Annual Meeting of The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS 52nd Annual Meeting and STS/AATS Tech-Con 2016), which was held in Phoenix, Arizona, January 23-27, 2016. Positive feedback was expressed by many conference attendees and management continues to follow-up on industry leads generated during the event. The Company will continue to build our presence at industry events and build out our relationships with members of the medical and scientific community. As so many continue to face the challenges of combatting cancer, the entire team at IsoRay is committed to work together to help patients and their caregivers achieve better outcomes.”
