2018年02月08日 AM06:05


ST. PAUL, Minn.

Cardiovascular Systems, Inc. (CSI) (NASDAQ: CSII), a medical device company developing and commercializing innovative interventional treatment systems for peripheral and coronary artery disease, today reported financial results for its fiscal second quarter, ended December 31, 2017.

The company’s second-quarter revenues were $52.6 million, an increase of $2.6 million from the second quarter of fiscal 2017. Gross profit margin rose to 81.9% from 81.7%, driven primarily by unit cost reductions. Operating expenses increased $3.6 million to $43.4 million, driven primarily by the expansion of the sales force with additional clinical specialists and increased ECLIPSE clinical study activity.

Second-quarter net loss was $(0.4) million, or $(0.01) per basic share, compared to a net income of $1.0 million, or $0.03 per share, in the prior-year period. Adjusted EBITDA was positive in the quarter at $3.4 million.

Scott Ward, CSI’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, said “We are encouraged that the adjustments we made to our sales model last quarter resulted in 6% sequential revenue growth. However, we believe that the ramp in productivity from the recent addition of 45 clinical specialists may take longer than we anticipated in October. As a result, we now forecast fiscal year 2018 revenue to be in a range of $215 million to $219 million.”

Added Ward, “During the second half of the fiscal year, we forecast continued attractive sequential quarterly revenue growth, due to improving sales productivity, our commercial launch in Japan, and the limited market release of OrbusNeich angioplasty balloons and ZILIENT™ guidewires.”

International Expansion Begins with Commercial Launch of Coronary Device in Japan
On February 1, CSI announced that it had commercially treated the first patient in Japan with its Diamondback 360® Coronary Orbital Atherectomy System Micro Crown (Micro Crown).

CSI received PMDA approval for the Micro Crown in March 2017 and reimbursement approval effective February 2018. Medikit Co., Ltd. is CSI’s exclusive distribution partner in Japan. With a controlled launch now underway, CSI expects to complete an initial Micro Crown stocking order during its third fiscal quarter and open approximately 15 accounts by the end of the fiscal year.

Commented Ward, “We are excited to bring orbital atherectomy technology to Japan. Of the 280,000 Japanese patients who undergo percutaneous coronary procedures each year, 10-20% have severely calcified coronary lesions. The introduction of Micro Crown gives physicians in Japan a cost-effective treatment option for this difficult-to-treat patient population.”

Rhonda Robb Joins Company as Chief Operating Officer
On January 25, CSI announced the appointment of Rhonda Robb as Chief Operating Officer. Robb held leadership positions at Medtronic for 30 years, most recently serving as Vice President and General Manager of the Heart Valve Therapies business. She has strong experience leading complex businesses and growing new markets, extensive commercial experience, and a strong track record of building teams and product portfolios that have improved the quality of care for patients with cardiovascular disease.

“Rhonda is a dynamic and talented executive with extraordinary experience in driving innovation and growth in medical technology,” said Ward. “She has the leadership ability to further build CSI and help us achieve our ambitious growth goals.”

CSI Expands Product Portfolio to Further Support Peripheral and Coronary Interventions
On January 18, CSI announced two new partnerships broadening the company’s product portfolio. CSI is now the exclusive U.S. distributor of OrbusNeich balloon products. Additionally, the company has signed an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement with Integer Holdings Corporation for CSI-branded ZILIENT™ guidewires.

The company anticipates OrbusNeich’s full balloon product portfolio will become available throughout 2018 and 2019. The broad market launch of the CSI-branded ZILIENT peripheral guidewires is expected to begin later in the current fiscal year. CSI anticipates that additional ZILIENT guidewires for coronary interventions and radial peripheral interventions will be available in the future.

Ward added, “We’re increasing the value and expertise that we bring to physicians and patients by expanding our product portfolio in the key areas where CSI excels. While we don’t anticipate a material top-line impact in fiscal 2018, we’re excited about the long-term growth potential from these new partnerships.”

Fiscal 2018 Third-Quarter and Full-Year Outlook and Commentary
Ward said, “Second-quarter revenues improved, compared to first quarter, due in part to our decision to flex our sales model. Allocating approximately 20 of our sales reps to our coronary franchise helped restore growth and add new account revenue. However, the productivity ramp from the additional 45 clinical specialists fell short of our expectations. We now anticipate that productivity during the second half of the year will be lower than we forecasted in October. As a result, we now expect Fiscal Year 2018 revenues in the range of $215 million to $219 million.”

For the fiscal 2018 third quarter ending March 31, 2018, CSI anticipates:

  • Revenue in a range of $55.0 million to $56.5 million;
  • Gross profit as a percentage of revenues of about 81.0%;
  • Operating expenses of approximately $45.5 million;
  • Net (loss) income in the range of $(0.9) million to $0.0 million, or net (loss) earnings per common share ranging from $(0.03) to $0.00, assuming approximately 33.2 million average shares outstanding; and
  • Positive Adjusted EBITDA.

About Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)
As many as 18 million Americans, most over age 65, suffer from PAD, which is caused by the accumulation of plaque in peripheral arteries reducing blood flow. Symptoms include leg pain when walking or at rest. Left untreated, PAD can lead to severe pain, immobility, non-healing wounds and eventually limb amputation. With risk factors such as diabetes and obesity on the rise, the prevalence of PAD is growing at double-digit rates.

Millions of patients with PAD may benefit from treatment with orbital atherectomy utilizing the Stealth 360® and Diamondback 360® Peripheral Orbital Atherectomy Systems, minimally invasive catheter systems developed and manufactured by CSI. These systems use a diamond-coated crown, attached to an orbiting shaft, which sands away plaque while preserving healthy vessel tissue — a critical factor in preventing reoccurrences. Balloon angioplasty and stents have significant shortcomings in treating hard, calcified lesions. Stents are prone to fractures and high recurrence rates, and treatment of hard, calcified lesions often leads to vessel damage and suboptimal results.

About Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)
CAD is a life-threatening condition and a leading cause of death in men and women in the United States. CAD occurs when a fatty material called plaque builds up on the walls of arteries that supply blood to the heart. The plaque buildup causes the arteries to harden and narrow (atherosclerosis), reducing blood flow. The risk of CAD increases if a person has one or more of the following: high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol levels, diabetes, or family history of early heart disease. According to the American Heart Association, 16.3 million people in the United States have been diagnosed with CAD, the most common form of heart disease. Heart disease claims more than 600,000 lives in the United States each year. According to estimates, significant arterial calcium is present in nearly 40% of patients undergoing a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Significant calcium contributes to poor outcomes and higher treatment costs in coronary interventions when traditional therapies are used, including a significantly higher occurrence of death and major adverse cardiac events (MACE).

About Cardiovascular Systems, Inc.

The company’s Orbital Atherectomy Systems treat calcified and fibrotic plaque in arterial vessels throughout the leg and heart in a few minutes of treatment time, and address many of the limitations associated with existing surgical, catheter and pharmacological treatment alternatives. The U.S. FDA granted the first 510(k) clearance for the use of the Orbital Atherectomy System in peripheral arteries in August 2007. In October 2013, the company received FDA approval for the Coronary Orbital Atherectomy System. To date, over 356,000 of CSI’s devices have been sold to leading institutions across the United States.
