Pro-Dex, Inc. Announces Fiscal 2014 Second Quarter Results

IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Pro-Dex, Inc. (NasdaqCM: PDEX) today announced financial results for its fiscal 2014 second quarter ended December 31, 2013.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20111025/LA93174LOGO-c)

Quarter Ended December 31, 2013

Net sales for the three months ended December 31, 2013 decreased $367,000, or 12%, to $2.6 million from $3.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012 due primarily to decreases of $428,000 in medical device development and manufacturing revenues, and $48,000 in motion control product revenues, which were partially offset by an increase of $152,000 in dental product revenues.

Contributing to the $428,000 decrease related to the Company's medical device product line was a $275,000 decrease in repair revenues from its former largest customer, which was partially offset by an increase of $161,000 in product and repair revenues from its current largest customer.  Pursuant to an agreement with the former largest customer, which commits that customer to a minimum amount of inventory purchases at the agreement's termination in June 2014, the Company expects sales to that customer to continue to decline through the agreement's term, after which it expects no further revenues from that customer.  The increase in sales to the Company's current largest customer reflects the resumption of orders from that customer, which had been curtailed since March 2013.  The Company expects to continue receiving such orders through December 2014, the termination date of that customer's current purchase commitment.  Negotiations for future arrangements with that customer have not yet commenced.  Medical device sales to other customers decreased $181,000 and medical device design revenues decreased $133,000.

Gross profit for the three months ended December 31, 2013 decreased $484,000, or 47%, to $549,000 from $1.0 million for the same period in 2012.  Contributing to this decrease were the reduction in sales volume, described above, and the effects of unfavorable changes in the mix of product sales, which reduced gross profit by $126,000 and $139,000, respectively.  Also contributing to the decrease in gross profit was an increase of $199,000 in the accrual for anticipated losses from the development services portion of certain contracts, and an increase of $166,000 in unfavorable production variances related to reduced manufacturing volumes, which were partially offset by a decrease of $60,000 in warranty expense.  Other than the reduction in sales volume, the factors affecting gross profit described above also resulted in a decrease of gross margin as a percentage of sales to 21% for the three months ended December 31, 2013 from 34% for the corresponding period in 2012.   

Operating expenses (which include selling, general and administrative, and research and development expenses) for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 decreased 35% to $925,000 from $1.4 million in the prior year's corresponding quarter, reflecting primarily the effects of the Company's cost reduction program.

Loss from continuing operations for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 was $338,000, compared to a loss from continuing operations of $364,000 in the corresponding quarter in 2012.  Net loss for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 was $338,000, or $0.10 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $348,000, or $0.11 per diluted share, for the corresponding quarter in 2012.

Six Months Ended December 31, 2013

Net sales for the six months ended December 31, 2013 decreased $1.3 million, or 20%, to $5.2 million from $6.5 million for the six months ended December 31, 2012 due primarily to a decreases of $1.2 million in medical device development and manufacturing revenues, and $341,000 in motion control product revenues, which were partially offset by an increase of $246,000 in dental product revenues.

The $1.2 million decrease related to the Company's medical device product line was comprised of a $201,000 decrease in repair revenues from its former largest customer, and a $679,000 decrease in revenues from its current largest customer.  As discussed in greater detail above, the Company expects sales to its former customer to decline to zero over the balance of fiscal year 2014, and sales to its current largest customer in fiscal year 2014 to exceed prior year amounts pursuant to the resumption of orders from this customer, which commenced in December 2013 after having been curtailed since March 2013.  Also contributing to the decrease in medical device revenues was a $130,000 decrease in product sales to other medical device customers, and a $175,000 decrease in medical device design revenues.  

Gross profit for the six months ended December 31, 2013 decreased $775,000, or 34%, to $1.5 million from $2.3 million for the same period in 2012.  Contributing to this decrease were the reduction in sales volume described above and the effects of unfavorable changes in the mix of product sales, which reduced gross profit by $493,000 and $143,000, respectively.  Also contributing to the decrease in gross profit was an increase of $212,000 in the accrual for anticipated losses from the development services portion of certain contracts, and an increase of $198,000 in unfavorable production variances related to reduced manufacturing volumes, which were partially offset by a decrease of $213,000 in warranty expense resulting from lower sales volume in the 2013 period, relative to the 2012 period, and the warranty expiration in the 2013 period related to units sold in prior years.  Other than the reduction in sales volume, the factors affecting gross profit described above also resulted in a decrease of gross margin as a percentage of sales to 29% for the six months ended December 31, 2013 from 35% for the corresponding period in 2012.   

Operating expenses (which include selling, general and administrative, and research and development expenses) for the six months ended December 31, 2013 decreased 32% to $1.8 million from $2.7 million in the prior year's corresponding period, reflecting primarily the effects of the Company's cost reduction program.

Loss from continuing operations for the six months ended December 31, 2013 was $320,000, compared to a loss from continuing operations of $418,000 for the corresponding period in 2012.  Net loss for the six months ended December 31, 2013 was $126,000, or $0.04 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $365,000, or $0.11 per diluted share, for the corresponding period in 2012. 

CEO Comments

Harold A. ("Hal") Hurwitz, the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Our results for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 were materially influenced by factors adversely affecting gross margins.  As we have previously publicly discussed, much of our activity this fiscal year relates to the engineering phase of projects to develop a next-generation platform for powered surgical instruments that we believe will result in manufacturing revenues commencing at the end of fiscal 2014 or early fiscal 2015. Most development efforts of this nature, however, have inherent unexpected costs, and the projects in which we are engaged are no different.  We anticipate that our development project costs will exceed the development project revenues we expect to earn.  Accordingly, we recorded accruals for these excess costs, amounting to $199,000 for the quarter and $212,000 for the six months ended December 31, 2013, that eroded gross margins for those respective periods." 

"In addition, we incurred unfavorable manufacturing variances for the quarter and six months ended December 31, 2013 as a consequence of our relatively low sales volumes that also eroded gross margins.  While it is desirable to maintain manufacturing capacity in anticipation of future activity, we may reduce this capacity as necessary to staunch these unfavorable variances."

"With our cost footprint now right-sized, as evidenced by our year-over-year operating expense performance, the fundamental agenda for Pro-Dex is unchanged – to rebuild our revenue base.  To this end, we have restructured our business development capabilities this fiscal year to more efficiently identify and pursue additional business opportunities, and I look forward to reporting on the results of these initiatives in the future."
