EDAP Reports Second Quarter 2013 Results8-28-13 7:30 AM EDT

LYON, France, Aug. 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EDAP TMS SA (Nasdaq:EDAP), the global leader in therapeutic ultrasound, announced today financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2013, and provided an update on recent strategic developments.

Marc Oczachowski, EDAP's Chief Executive Officer, stated, "During the quarter, we continued to make strides in our business plan as we strengthened our balance sheet and reached a significant milestone with our innovative technology. In particular, we repaid the full $8 million of our outstanding long-term debt. We also received CE mark in June for Focal One®, our additional and complementary robotic HIFU device, and we have subsequently commenced our commercialization efforts in Europe. In addition, device sales are progressing well as we reach the end of August, with several pending lithotripsy projects that we anticipated closing during the second quarter confirmed in early July due to customer related factors. We continue to strengthen our sales backlog and are working toward closing these in the coming weeks."

Recent Developments

In June 2013, EDAP received CE mark (European regulatory approval) for Focal One®, its new and innovative robotic HIFU device fully dedicated to focal therapy of prostate cancer. The CE mark positions Focal One for commercialization in Europe and in many other countries.

In June 2013, EDAP completed the full redemption of its $8.0 million outstanding long-term debt by using a portion of the net proceeds from the $12.0 million private placement executed in May 2013.

In June 2013, the 100-day meeting with the FDA provided a discussion forum regarding the PMA application for EDAP's Ablatherm-HIFU device for the treatment of localized prostate cancer and confirmed that our submission process is ongoing.

In May 2013, new long-term data demonstrating high rates of both cancer-specific and overall survival of 1,002 patients treated with high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) was electronically published in European Urology, the official journal of the European Association of Urology. The prospective, single-arm, single-institution cohort study, led by Drs. Sebastien Crouzet and Albert Gelet of Edouard Herriot Hospital, evaluated the morbidity and long-term oncologic outcomes of primary HIFU therapy for localized prostate cancer. The study is the Company's third peer reviewed publication this year reporting 10 year cancer-specific survival and metastatic-free survival rates following Ablatherm-HIFU treatment.

Second Quarter 2013 Results

Total revenue for the second quarter 2013 was EUR 4.5 million (USD 5.9 million), compared to EUR 6.1 million (USD 7.8 million) for the second quarter 2012.

Total revenue for the HIFU division was EUR 967,000 (USD 1.3 million) for the second quarter 2013, compared to EUR 1.1 million (USD 1.4 million) for the same period last year. Results for the second quarter 2013 included the sales of RPP's and sales of spare parts and services.

For the three months ended June 30, 2013, total revenue for the lithotripsy division was EUR 3.5 million (USD 4.6 million), compared to EUR 5.0 million (USD 6.4 million), during the year ago period.

Gross profit margin was 36.1% in the second quarter 2013, compared to 39.1% in the year ago period. The change in the gross profit margin was mostly attributed to the negative impact of the Japanese Yen exchange rate variations against the Euro.

Net loss for the second quarter 2013 included interest income of EUR 1.9 million as a result of non-cash accounting adjustments related to the full redemption of the Company's long-term debt and to fair value variations of the Company's outstanding warrants.

First Six Months 2013 Results

Total revenue for the first half of 2013 was EUR 10.4 million (USD 13.7 million), including a negative impact of EUR 800,000 due to currency exchange rate variations, down 4.9% compared to EUR 11.0 million (USD 14.3 million) for the first half of 2012. Excluding the impact of exchange rate variations, total revenues would have experienced moderate growth of 2% for the period.

Gross profit for the first half of 2013 was EUR 3.8 million (USD 5.0 million) and gross profit margin was 36.7% and 39.5% on a like-for-like basis after adjusting for the currency exchange variations, compared to 39.2% in the year ago period.

Net loss for the first six months of 2013 included a non-cash interest expense of EUR 0.4 million (USD 0.5 million) to reflect the full redemption of the Company's long-term financial debt and accounting fair value adjustments on its outstanding warrants.
