Encision Reports First Quarter Fiscal Year 2020 Results

BOULDER, Colo., Aug. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Encision Inc. (PK:ECIA), a medical device company owning patented Active Electrode Monitoring (AEM®) Technology that prevents dangerous stray electrosurgical burns in minimally invasive surgery, today announced financial results for its fiscal 2020 first quarter that ended June 30, 2019.

The Company posted quarterly net revenue of $1.93 million for a quarterly net loss of $182 thousand, or $(0.02) per diluted share. These results compare to net revenue of $2.40 million for a quarterly net income of $18 thousand, or $0.00 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Net revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 included revenue from a higher number of capital monitor units sold, which delivers a higher sales price per unit than the sales price of other products that we sell. Gross margin on net revenue was 48% in the fiscal 2019 first quarter and 54% in the fiscal 2018 first quarter. Gross margin on net revenue was lower in the current quarter primarily as a result of significantly higher material costs, especially as a result of tariffs on our steel costs and higher labor and overhead costs, per unit of inventory, as a result of lower revenue and higher labor and overhead costs, per unit of inventory, as a result of lower revenue.

Last week, we entered into a loan and security agreement with Crestmark Bank. The loan is due on demand and has no financial covenants. Under the agreement, we were provided with a line of credit that is not to exceed the lesser of $1,000,000 or 85% of eligible accounts receivable. The interest rate is prime rate plus 1.5%, with a floor of 6.75%, plus a monthly maintenance fee of 0.4%, based on the average monthly loan balance. Interest is charged on a minimum loan balance of $500,000, a loan fee of 1% annually, and an exit fee of 3%, 2% and 1% during years one, two and three, respectively.

"For this fiscal year's first quarter, net revenue resulted in a 20% decline of revenue, said Greg Trudel, President and CEO of Encision Inc. "Because of the significantly higher material costs that were a result of the U.S. tariffs and the resulting loss, we have implemented a reduction of personnel and departmental spending in excess of $1 million annualized. We expect that the reductions will return us to profitability. While never satisfied with a loss of any magnitude, our confidence in our strategy to drive top line growth through new product introductions and channel expansion is unwavering."

Encision Inc. designs and markets a portfolio of high performance surgical instrumentation that delivers advances in patient safety with AEM technology, surgical performance, and value to hospitals across a broad range of minimally invasive surgical procedures. Based in Boulder, Colorado, the company pioneered the development and deployment of Active Electrode Monitoring, AEM technology, to eliminate dangerous stray energy burns during minimally invasive procedures.
