Implant Sciences Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2013 Financial Results

Company to Host Earnings Call on Thursday, November 15th at 4:15 PM EST

WILMINGTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/14/12 -- Implant Sciences Corporation (OTCQB: IMSC), a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for the homeland security market and related industries, today announced financial results for the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Revenues for the first quarter ended September 30, 2012, increased 37%, to $1.4 million, from $1.0 million for the comparable prior year period. Our net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 was $12.7 million as compared with a net loss of $3.0 million for the comparable prior year period, an increase of $9.7 million. The increase in the net loss is primarily due to $9.3 million of stock-based compensation recorded on the September 2012 officer and director option grants, increased operating expenses and increased interest expense.

Glenn D. Bolduc, President and CEO of Implant Sciences, commented, "During our recently concluded first quarter, Implant Sciences achieved a number of important strategic goals that we believe position the Company for long term growth, and we remain excited about our future prospects. We have taken important steps to broaden the markets we serve, increase our revenue opportunities, and improve our financial stability. These include the following recent developments:

  • Our QS-B220 Benchtop Explosives and Narcotics Trace Detector continued to progress through final independent validation testing with the Transportation Security Laboratory ("TSL") to qualify for placement on the Transportation Security Administration ("TSA") Air Cargo Screening Technology List.
  • Continued to increase our geographic distribution with sales to Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Increased diversification of markets served in the recently ended quarter to include; banks, hotels, bomb squads, airports, sporting venues and the petroleum industry.
  • Extended the maturity of our credit agreements with DMRJ Group LLC through March 31, 2013 and negotiated the conversion of $12 million of the line of credit to a convertible term note.
  • Enhanced our technology team with the addition of Dr. Hacene Boudries and our sales team with the recruitment of two industry experienced sales managers; Nav Mosey, most recently Sales Manager for Rapiscan Systems and Jimmy Mo, former Director, Asia Pacific Sales and Marketing for GE Ion Track. Dr. Boudries was most recently with Morpho Detection Inc. where he was Director, Research & Technology, Chemical/Biological Detection & Chemical Sensing at Morpho Detection's Advanced Technology Programs. Previously, Dr. Boudries was Research and Development Manager in charge of Chemical/Biological Detection at General Electric Security.
  • Achieved all of the technical requirements of our contract with the India Ministry of Defence and expect to complete the required modifications to our standard computer-based training in the near term.

Mr. Bolduc concluded, "We continue to expand our distribution network, under the leadership of Darryl Jones, which we believe will provide a solid foundation from which to build upon as we work to grow market share and revenues. We have much work ahead of ourselves, but remain excited about our future prospects."

Details for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 follow below.

Quarter Ended September 30, 2012 vs. September 30, 2011

  • Revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 were $1,415,000 as compared with $1,036,000 for the comparable prior year period, an increase of $379,000, or 36.6%. The increase in revenue is primarily due to a 36% increase in the number of QS-H150 handheld units sold during the three months ended September 30, 2012 and sales of our QS-B220 benchtop units, which we began shipping commercially in the third quarter of fiscal 2012, partially offset by a 9% decrease in average unit sell prices on sales our QS-H150 handheld units.
  • Gross loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 was ($39,000) or (2.8%) of revenues as compared with gross margin of $399,000 or 38.5% of revenues for the comparable prior year period, resulting primarily from increased manufacturing overhead spending due to stock-based compensation recorded on the September 2012 officer and director option grants, increased manufacturing personnel costs and by the 9% decrease in the average unit sell prices on sales of our QS-H150 handheld units.
  • Research and development expense for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 was $1,337,000 as compared with $819,000 for the comparable prior year period, an increase of $518,000 or 63.2%, due primarily to stock-based compensation recorded on the September 2012 officer and director option grants, increased payroll and related fringe benefit costs, partially offset by decreased contracted engineering.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 were $10,131,000 as compared with $1,813,000 for the comparable prior year period, an increase of $8,318,000, or 458.8%, due primarily to stock-based compensation recorded on the September 2012 officer and director option grants, increased legal fees, increased payroll, related fringe benefits costs and travel expense resulting from the addition of sales personnel, partially offset by lower consulting fees due to the issuance of our common stock to certain consultants in the comparable prior year period.
  • For the quarter ended September 30, 2012, other expense, net was $1,241,000 as compared with other expense, net of $839,000, for the comparable prior year period, an increase of $402,000, due primarily to a $401,000 increase in interest expense on higher borrowings under our credit facility with DMRJ.
