Conference Call Begins at 4:30 p.m. (EDT) Today

PETALUMA, Calif., Aug. 7, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oculus Innovative Sciences, Inc. (Nasdaq:OCLS) today announced financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2015, ended June 30, 2014. Total revenue was $3.4 million for the first quarter, up 1%, as compared to the same period in the prior year. Total product revenue was up 1%, with increases in Europe, Mexico, the Middle East, India and Singapore, offset by decreases in the United States and China.

"We are disappointed with a mere one percent increase in revenues over the previous year," said Jim Schutz, Oculus' CEO. "To accelerate our growth this year and beyond, the team is preparing to launch five new products in the United States and an additional four new products in Mexico, Europe and the rest of the world. In addition, we are in active discussions with multiple animal healthcare companies that are interested in taking our best-in-class Microcyn-based animal healthcare products forward."

Results for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2014

Revenue in Mexico for the three months ended June 30, 2014 increased $46,000, or 3%, when compared to the same period in the prior year, with a 9% increase in units sold. Additionally, for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, $375,000 was recognized in each quarter related to the amortization of upfront license fees paid by More Pharma, Oculus' Latin American sales partner.

Revenue in Europe and the 'Rest of World' for the three months ended June 30, 2014, increased $265,000, or 65%, as compared to the same period in the prior year, with increases in Europe, the Middle East and Singapore, partially offset by slight declines in China and India. The increases are largely the result of multiple new advanced wound care products, including Oculus' first European gel product, as well as the addition of new European distributors.

Product revenue in the United States for the three months ended June 30, 2014, was down 22% from the same period last year, with lower sales in animal healthcare and dermatology, partially offset by increased sales of advanced wound care products used in hospitals. Oculus recorded revenue in the amounts of $528,000 and $741,000, for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively, from Oculus' animal healthcare partner, Innovacyn. The decrease was caused by a reduction in average selling price and unit volume, the result of increased competition and the partial transition to a new supplier. The sales in the dermatology market were lower than the same period last year due to the discontinuance of a distributor, while sales to Oculus' primary distributor were up from the same period last year.

Oculus reported gross profit related to product sales of $1.8 million, or 58% of product revenues, during the three months ended June 30, 2014, as compared to a gross profit of $2.1 million, or 68% of product revenues, for the same period in the prior year. Gross margins were down due to the decline of margins in the United States related to decreases in U.S. sales related to animal healthcare and human dermatology.

Total operating expenses increased by $94,000, or 3%, to $3.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014, as compared to the same period in the prior year. Operating expenses minus non-cash expenses during the first quarter of fiscal 2015 were $3.0 million, up $46,000, when compared to the same period in the prior year. The increase in operating expenses, minus non-cash expenses, was due to higher sales, marketing and administrative expenses in U.S., Mexico and Europe, partially offset by lower expenses related to the company's subsidiary, Ruthigen.

Research and development expenses were $439,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2014, down $68,000 from the same period last year, due to lower expenses of $175,000 incurred by Ruthigen. Selling, general and administrative expense of $3.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014 increased $162,000 over the same period last year, or 6%, largely related to an increase in sales, marketing and administrative expenses in the U.S, Mexico and Europe.

Loss from operations minus non-cash expenses of $1.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014, increased by $286,000, as compared to the same period in the prior year, which was mostly due to the aforementioned higher operating expenses

Net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2014, was $70,000, a reduction of $1.6 million, as compared to the net loss of $1.7 million for the same period in the prior year. The decrease in net loss from the prior year is due to the mark-to-market adjustment of derivative liabilities related to outstanding common stock purchase warrants. Stock-based compensation charges were $451,000 and $347,000 for the quarters ended June 30, 2014, and 2013, respectively.

As of June 30, 2014, Oculus had unrestricted cash and cash equivalents of $5.0 million, as compared with $5.5 million at March 31, 2014.
