Oculus Innovative Sciences Reports Financial Results for the Second Quarter of Fiscal Year 2016

Total Revenue of $4.1 Million Increased 24%—Led by 64% Increase in Product Revenue—Driven by Growth in U.S. Dermatology Sales

Conference Call at 4:30 pm ET Today

PETALUMA, Calif. , Nov. 05, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oculus Innovative Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ:OCLS), warrants (Nasdaq:OCLSW), a specialty pharmaceutical company that develops and markets solutions for the treatment of dermatological conditions and advanced tissue care, today announced financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2016 ended September 30, 2015.

Total revenue was $4.1 million for the second quarter, an increase of 24%, when compared to $3.3 million for the same period in 2014. Product revenues were up 64% from the same period last year, led by increases in the United States dermatology market and the rest of world.

“Oculus’ second quarter benefited from the strategic decision we made in late 2014 to enter the U.S. dermatology market directly. At that time, we deployed a direct U.S. sales force followed by the launch of six prescription dermatology products. This expanded our presence in the dermatology market, with its strong pricing reimbursement and rapid sales ramps, has resulted in significant sales growth in the U.S. over the last nine months," said Oculus CEO Jim Schutz. “We believe the growth in the dermatology sales will continue as we launch new products, expand our existing product lines and hire additional sales people.”

Results for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2015

Product revenue in the United States was $1.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015, as compared to $356,000 in the quarter ended September 30, 2014. Product revenues increased $830,000, or 233%, from the same period last year primarily due to higher dermatology sales. The growth in dermatology was the result of sales increases in four existing products for the treatment of atopic dermatitis, scars and surgical procedures, launched prior to this quarter and two new products, including an oral drug, which were shipped to wholesalers during the second quarter.

Product revenue in Europe and the rest of the world for the quarter ended September 30, 2015, increased by $399,000, or 72%, to $952,000 as compared to the same period in the prior year, with increases in Asia and Middle East, which were slightly offset by a modest sales decrease in Europe. The decrease in Europe is the result of the impact of a 19% decline in the euro, mostly offset by a 15% increase in local currency sales growth for the quarter. In addition, there were initial sales to new sales partners in India and New Zealand during the second quarter.

Product revenue in Latin America for the three months ended September 30, 2015, was $1.3 million, an increase of $99,000, or 8%, when compared to the same period in the prior year, impacted by a 26% decline in the peso. On a local currency basis, product revenue growth was 36% compared to the same period last year. This growth in sales is primarily due to a much larger sales force and distribution network of Oculus’ new partner, Laboratorios Sanfer, which acquired the company’s former partner in January 2015.

For the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, product licensing fees and royalty revenues were $339,000 and $997,000, respectively. The decrease is primarily related to the termination of Oculus’ agreement with its former animal healthcare partner.

Oculus reported gross profit related to its products of $2.0 million, or 54% of product related revenues, during the three months ended September 30, 2015, compared to a gross profit of $1.7 million, or 55% of total product related revenues, for the same period in the prior year. Product licensing fees and royalty revenues are included in the calculation of gross profit for the quarters ended September 30, 2015 and 2014.

Total operating expenses of $3.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015, increased by $672,000, or 21%, as compared to the same period in the prior year. Operating expenses minus non-cash expenses during the second quarter of fiscal year 2015 were $3.5 million, up $641,000, as compared to the same period in the prior year. The increase in operating expenses, minus non-cash expenses, was due to higher sales and marketing expenses in the United States related to the costs of a direct sales force in dermatology.

Net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2015, was $1.8 million, compared to net loss of $718,000 for the same period in the prior year. The higher net loss was primarily due to an $841,000 gain resulting from a change in the fair value of derivative liabilities in the prior year period which did not reoccur this quarter and, to a lesser extent, an increase in sales and marketing costs in the United States.

As of September 30, 2015, Oculus had unrestricted cash and cash equivalents of $8.0 million, as compared with $6.1 million as of March 31, 2015. The company has no debt outstanding.

Results for the Six Months Ended September 30, 2015

Total revenues of $7.7 million increased by $1.1 million, or 16%, for the six months ended September 30, 2015, as compared to $6.7 million for the six months ended September 30, 2014. Product revenue of $6.3 million increased $2.1 million, or 51%, with strong growth in all major segments, led by product revenue growth in the United States of $1.3 million, an increase of 177%. Latin America’s revenue was up 25%, despite a 21% decline in the peso and rest of world’s revenue was up 24% with strong growth in Asia.

Oculus reported gross profit related to sales of its products of $3.9 million, or 55% of product revenues, for the six months ended September 30, 2015, compared to a gross profit of $3.6 million, or 57% of product revenues, for the same period in the prior year.

Total operating expenses less non-cash expenses increased $1.4 million, or 24%, for the six months compared to the same period in the prior year, primarily due to higher sales costs for the direct sales force for dermatology. Operating loss less non-cash expenses (EBITDAS) for the six months ended September 30, 2015, was $3.0 million, compared to $2.0 million for the same period last year. The net loss for the six months ended September 30, 2014 includes a non-cash gain of $2.3 million due to a reduction in Oculus’ derivative liability relating to certain warrants, resulting in a non-cash change in net loss from the six months ended September 30, 2015 compared to the same period last year.
