2013 Financial Results
Financial highlights for the year ended December 31, 2013 include (all comparisons are with the year ended December 31, 2012):
- Revenue was $800,029, an increase of 4%.
- Gross profit was $610,238 which, as a percentage of revenue, increased to 76%, up from 71% in 2012.
- Research and development expenses, including the costs for the dermaPACE clinical study, were $2,296,662, an increase of $534,468, or 30%.
- Cash used by operating activities was $3,924,204, a decrease of $365,917, or 9%.
Revenue for 2013 was $800,029, compared with $769,217 for 2012, an increase of $30,812, or 4%. Revenue resulted primarily from sales in Europe, Asia and Asia/Pacific of the Company's dermaPACE and orthoPACE devices and related applicators. The increase in revenue for 2013 is primarily due to an increase in sales of applicators for 2013 as a result of more devices in use.
Research and development expenses for 2013 were $2,296,662, compared with $1,762,194 for 2012, an increase of $534,468, or 30%, due to the costs for the dermaPACE clinical study which started patient enrollment in June 2013.
General and administrative expenses for 2013 were $3,963,206, compared with $4,521,957 for 2012, a decrease of $558,751, or 12%. General and administrative expenses include non-cash stock-based compensation of $636,122 and $1,391,316 for 2013 and 2012, respectively, and non-cash cost for stock issued for consulting services of $1,014,267 and $0 for 2013 and 2012, respectively. Excluding the non-cash costs for stock-based compensation and consulting services above, general and administrative expenses were $2,312,817 for 2013, as compared to $3,130,641 for 2012, a decrease of $817,824, or 26%. The decrease was primarily due to a reduction in headcount in November 2012 which resulted in a decrease in expense in 2013, as compared to 2012.
The operating loss for 2013 was $5,975,961, compared with an operating loss of $6,062,323 for 2012. The net loss for 2013 was $11,299,721, or ($0.40) per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $6,401,494, or ($0.30) per basic and diluted share, in 2012, an increase in the net loss of $4,898,227, or 76%. The increase in the net loss was primarily a result of the non-cash increase in the net expense for other income (expense) of $5,639,650 for 2013, as compared to 2012, for the accounting for the Company's $2.0 million senior secured notes which were converted to equity in July 2013.
On December 31, 2013, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $182,315 compared with $70,325 as of December 31, 2012, an increase of $111,990. For 2013, net cash used by operating activities was $3,924,204, primarily consisting of salaries, regulatory and clinical trial expense, research and development activities and general corporate operations, compared with $4,290,121 for 2012. Net cash provided by financing activities for 2013 was $4,035,122, which primarily consisted of the proceeds from subscriptions received for senior secured convertible promissory notes of $1,570,000, net proceeds from the public offering of $1,517,450 and proceeds from the private placements of $626,188.
As previously disclosed, on March 17, 2014, the Company completed a private offering of securities for an aggregate total purchase price of $9,280,000. In addition, the Company raised $815,000 through the issuance of unsecured 18% convertible promissory notes in the first quarter of 2014, which by their terms, converted into equity at the same terms as the private offering on March 17, 2014.
The Company will also host a conference call on Tuesday, April 1, 2014, beginning at 10:00 AM ET to discuss the 2013 financial results, provide a business update and answer questions.
