Revenue Increased 7% Year-Over-Year
Non-Prostate Brachytherapy Revenue Increased 92% Year-Over-Year
RICHLAND, WASHINGTON – February 9, 2021 – Isoray, Inc. (NYSE AMERICAN: ISR), a medical technology company and innovator in seed brachytherapy powering expanding treatment options throughout the body, today announced its financial results for the second quarter fiscal 2021 ended December 31, 2020.
Revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 grew 7% to $2.36 million versus $2.21 million in the prior year comparable period. The company’s core prostate brachytherapy revenue declined 4% versus the second quarter of fiscal 2020 as procedure volumes continued to be impacted by decreased prostate cancer screenings throughout 2020 as a result of COVID-19. Prostate brachytherapy represented 80% of total revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2021 compared to 89% in the prior year comparable period. Non-prostate brachytherapy revenue increased 92% versus the prior year comparable period. The majority of non-prostate brachytherapy revenue in the quarter was comprised of sales to treat brain cancer, including sales of GammaTile® Therapy.
Gross profit as a percentage of revenues for the three months ended December 31, 2020 was consistent at 49.5% versus 50.4% in the prior year comparable period. Second quarter gross profit increased 5% to $1.17 million versus $1.11 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2020.
Isoray CEO Lori Woods said, “We are very pleased that we have been able to continue to make progress this quarter despite the ongoing challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic has presented. Amongst the highlights has been our continued success in expanding adoption of Cesium-131 in our core prostate market. At the same time, we are very excited about the use of our unique brachytherapy seeds for the treatment of other cancers. We believe this holds great promise for further growth.”
“The steps we are taking, supported by our just completed capital raise, allow us to build on our successes and move forward on a number of fronts including innovative delivery technologies and growing our involvement in the future of immuno-oncology and the decisive role that we expect Cesium-131 to play,” concluded Woods.
Total operating expenses for the second quarter were $2.04 million compared to $2.01 million in the prior year period. Total research and development expenses increased 3% versus the prior year comparable period. The increase in total research and development expenses was primarily the result of increased protocol expenses which were partially offset by a reduction of development expenses for the Blu Build™ delivery system that is now being marketed and sold versus the comparable prior year period.
Sales and marketing expenses decreased 7% versus the prior year comparable period. The decrease in sales and marketing expenses was driven primarily by declines in travel and tradeshow costs due to COVID-19 restrictions as well as decreased incentive compensation resulting from lower revenue growth compared to the prior year comparable period. General and administrative expenses increased 5% versus the prior year comparable period, primarily the result of increased director and officer insurance expense, increased payroll, and IT consulting expenses, which were partially offset by decreased travel costs due to COVID-19 restrictions as well as decreased employee hiring costs and legal fees.
The net loss for the three months ended December 31, 2020 decreased 3% to $0.87 million or ($0.01) per basic and diluted share versus a net loss of $0.90 million or ($0.01) per basic and diluted share in the comparable prior year period. Basic and diluted per share results are based on weighted average shares outstanding of approximately 83.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020 versus 67.4 million in the comparable prior year period.
For the first six months of fiscal 2021 ended December 31, 2020, revenue increased 5% to $4.74 million versus $4.52 million in the prior year comparable period. Prostate brachytherapy represented 80% of total revenue for the first half of fiscal 2021 compared to 89% for the first half of fiscal 2020. Total operating expenses for the first six months of fiscal 2021 decreased 2% to $4.00 million, versus $4.09 million in the prior year comparable period. The net loss for the first half of fiscal 2021 was $1.58 million, or ($0.02) per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1.71 million, or ($0.03) per basic and diluted share, in the prior year comparable period. Basic and diluted per share results are based on weighted average shares outstanding of approximately 76.0 million for the six months ended December 31, 2020, versus 67.4 million in the comparable prior year period.
Cash, cash equivalents, and certificates of deposit at the end of the second quarter of fiscal 2021 totaled $9.59 million and the company had no debt. Stockholders’ equity at the end of the second quarter of fiscal 2021 totaled $12.77 million.
