  • Cash flow from operating activities totaled $518,000, compared to $1.2 million in Q2 FY 2018. Cash flow from operating activities in Q2 FY 2018 included approximately $563,000 from Medicare related to a settlement of older claims that were in appeals.

Kathleen Skarvan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Electromed, commented, We achieved more referrals and approvals compared to the same quarter in the prior year, reflecting our expanded sales force, ongoing excellence in our reimbursement operations and continuing efforts to advance physician awareness and education surrounding the benefits of high frequency chest wall oscillation therapy (HFCWO) with our SmartVest device. In our institutional market, we achieved another quarter of strong revenue growth, driven primarily by our strategic focus on integrated delivery networks.

Net revenue increased 15.1% to $8.0 million, from $7.0 million in Q2 FY 2018, primarily driven by higher home care revenue. Home care revenue rose 13.0% to $7.3 million from $6.5 million in Q2 FY 2018, primarily due to growth in referrals and approvals driven by a larger field sales staff and continued improvements in the companys reimbursement operations that led to a greater referral to approval percentage.

Gross profit increased 12.2% to $6.1 million, or 75.7% of net revenue, from $5.4 million, or 77.6% of net revenue, in Q2 FY 2018. The increase in gross profit resulted primarily from an increase in home care revenue. The decrease in gross profit as a percentage of net revenue was driven by a lower selling price per device in the companys institutional market.

Operating expenses, which include selling, general and administrative (SG&A) as well as R&D expenses, totaled $5.4 million, or 67.3% of net revenue, compared with $4.6 million, or 66.5% of net revenue, in the same period of the prior year. SG&A expenses increased 12.6% to $5.2 million, from $4.6 million in Q2 FY 2018, primarily due to higher payroll and compensation-related expenses and increased travel, meals and entertainment expenses, which were driven by the expansion of our sales team. As a percentage of revenue, SG&A expenses improved to 64.3% compared to 65.7%, reflecting ongoing cost-containment efforts and improvements in sales force productivity. R&D expenses increased to $238,000, from $57,000 in Q2 FY 2018, due to work on an innovative product feature designed to improve patients access to treatment adherence data.

Operating income totaled $672,000, compared to $771,000 in Q2 FY 2018.

Net income before income tax expense totaled $689,000 compared to $766,000 in Q2 FY 2018.

Net income equaled $378,000, or $0.04 per diluted share, compared to $420,000, or $0.05 per diluted share, in Q2 FY 2018. In Q2 FY 2019, income tax expense totaled $311,000, compared to $346,000 in the same period of the prior year.

We remain dedicated to achieving double digit top-line growth and expect improved bottom-line results over the next few years through diligent execution of our growth strategy, enhanced sales force productivity and tighter expense management, Ms. Skarvan added. Our sales team is hyper-focused on strategic accounts and visit frequency within each of our territories to drive further market share gains. Moreover, we are intensifying our efforts to secure home care referrals from hospitals, which have powerful economic incentives to prescribe SmartVest at the time patients are discharged to avoid costly readmission penalties under the Affordable Care Act. With continued progress in these areas, we see a tremendous opportunity to gain share in the large and growing bronchiectasis market.

Year-to-Date FY 2019 Summary

For the six months ended December 31, 2018, revenue grew 15.2% to $15.3 million, from $13.3 million in the same period of fiscal 2018, driven by a 13.3% increase in home care revenue. Gross margins were 75.9%, compared to 76.1% in the prior fiscal year, while net income was approximately $532,000, or $0.06 per diluted share, compared to approximately $501,000, or $0.06 per diluted share, in the first six months of fiscal 2018.
