Encision Reports Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2022 Results

BOULDER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / June 16, 2022 / Encision Inc. (OTCPK:ECIA), a medical device company owning patented Active Electrode Monitoring (AEM®) Technology that prevents dangerous radiant energy burns in minimally invasive surgery, today announced financial results for its fiscal 2022 fourth quarter that ended March 31, 2022.

The Company posted quarterly net revenue of $1.60 million for a quarterly net loss of $402 thousand, or $(0.03) per diluted share. These results compare to net revenue of $2.15 million for a quarterly net income of $116 thousand, or $0.01 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin on net revenue was 50% in the fiscal 2022 fourth quarter and 54% in the fiscal 2021 fourth quarter. Gross margin decreased in the current year’s fourth quarter compared to last year’s fourth quarter due principally to higher material costs.

The Company posted twelve months net revenue of $7.67 million for a twelve months net loss of $66 thousand, or $(0.01) per diluted share. These results compare to twelve months net revenue of $7.54 million for a twelve months net income of $585 thousand, or $0.05 per diluted share, in the year-ago twelve months. Net income included extinguishment of debt income of $533 thousand in the current year’s twelve months and $599 thousand in the year-ago twelve months. Gross margin on net revenue was 49% in the fiscal 2022 twelve months and 52% in the fiscal 2021 twelve months. Gross margin in the fiscal 2022 twelve months was lower due to higher material costs.

“The fourth quarter presented significant challenges for Encision,” said Gregory Trudel, President and CEO of Encision Inc. “We saw product revenue decrease by 18% and service revenue decrease by 84% compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2021. The COVID wave continues to disrupt surgical procedures and we encountered a downward swing in product revenues. We continue to encounter supply chain issues and work tirelessly to deliver a steady mix of products to our customers who depend on us. Service revenue decreased significantly as we successfully concluded our collaboration with Auris Health, Inc. (“Auris Health”), a part of the Johnson & Johnson family of companies. Encision continues to be positive as we navigate the ups and downs of the pandemic market and the new-normal supply chain turmoil. We continuously look for opportunities to serve our customers with new products, to work smarter, and to drive increased efficiencies. In spite of limited customer access, our sales and marketing efforts are yielding new customers for our EnTouchâ 2X Scissors and we look forward to their contributions as the market bounces back.”

“Service revenue for our fourth quarter of fiscal year 2022 resulted from services performed under a Master Services Agreement with Auris Health. Under the agreement, Encision collaborated on the integration of AEM® Technology into monopolar instrumentation produced by Auris Health for advanced surgical applications. On August 23, 2021, we entered into a Supply Agreement with Auris Health. Towards the end of the fourth quarter business needs took a different direction. On May 5, 2022, the parties mutually agreed to terminate all the agreements. We enjoyed collaborating with the team at J&J and we look forward to future opportunities to work together.”

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.
