ALBANY, N.Y., July 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AngioDynamics (NASDAQ:ANGO), a leading provider of innovative, minimally invasive medical devices for vascular access, surgery, peripheral vascular disease and oncology, today reported fourth quarter and full year financial results for the 2017 fiscal year ended May 31, 2017.

“The quarter, and year, reflect a commitment to strengthening our business, improving our core operational efficiency and making strategic decisions that will enable long-term, sustainable top-line growth as we outlined in our recent Investor Day, held in April,” said Jim Clemmer, President and Chief Executive Officer of AngioDynamics. “Over the course of the year, we have worked hard to become a profitable, efficiently run operating company. We ended the year with record high Adjusted EPS of $0.73 and free cash flow of more than $52 million. These are important measures as we look at opportunities to spur growth in fiscal year 2018 and beyond.”

Fourth Quarter 2017 Financial Results
Net sales for the fiscal fourth quarter were $86.9 million compared with $93.4 million a year ago. Currency did not have an impact in the quarter.

Peripheral Vascular net sales in the fourth quarter were $54.0 million, compared to $55.6 million in the fiscal year 2016 fourth quarter. Vascular Access net sales in the fourth quarter were $24.2 million, compared to $24.8 million a year ago. Fourth quarter Oncology/Surgery net sales were $8.7 million, down from $13.0 million in the fiscal year 2016 fourth quarter, primarily due to a $2.6 million reserve related to a recall and voluntary market withdrawal of our Acculis Microwave Tissue Ablation System.

Overall U.S. net sales in the fourth quarter were $70.8 million, compared to $75.6 million a year ago. Overall International net sales in the fourth quarter were $16.1 million compared to $17.8 million a year ago.

Gross margins for the fourth quarter of 2017 were 48.7%, compared to 44.5% a year ago. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017, the Company recorded a net loss of $10.9 million, or $0.30 on a per share basis. The Company recorded a net loss of $43.1 million, or $1.19 on a per share basis, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016.

Excluding the items shown in the attached quarterly non-GAAP reconciliation table, adjusted net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 was $6.8 million, or $0.19 per share, compared to an adjusted net income of $7.4 million, or $0.20 per share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016. Adjusted EBITDAS in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017, excluding the items shown in the attached reconciliation table, was $15.0 million compared to $14.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016. The adjustments for both net income and EBITDAS were primarily due to a reserve related to previously disclosed legal matters related to Department of Justice subpoenas in fiscal year 2017 and a tax valuation allowance in fiscal year 2016.

In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017, the Company generated $19.0 million in operating cash flow and $18.3 million in free cash flow. As of May 31, 2017, cash and cash equivalents were $47.5 million and debt was $97.5 million.

Twelve Months Financial Results
For the twelve months ended May 31, 2017, net sales were $349.6 million compared to the $353.9 million reported a year ago. The Company recorded net income of $7.0 million, or $0.19 per share, compared to a net loss of $43.6 million, or $1.21 per share, reported a year ago. Excluding the items shown in the attached quarterly non-GAAP reconciliation table, adjusted net income was $27.0 million, or $0.73 per share, compared to adjusted net income of $21.8 million, or $0.60 per share, a year ago. Adjusted EBITDAS, excluding the items shown in the attached reconciliation table, was $61.5 million, compared to $53.1 million in the year ago period.

“Throughout the 2017 fiscal year, we made strategic decisions to position ourselves for our stated long-term growth objectives. Some of these decisions included writing off assets that we no longer view as strategically aligned, consolidating our physical footprint, evaluating our international opportunities and accelerating previously disclosed legal matters,” said Michael C. Greiner, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of AngioDynamics. “Even with those items impacting our financial results, we still showed the strength of our business, and balance sheet, through gross margin expansion, EPS growth and strong cash flow.”

Mr. Greiner added, “During the year, we generated more than $52 million in free cash flow, paid down $24 million in outstanding debt, repurchased $13.6 million of our common shares, made $10.1 million in contingent consideration payments and refinanced our credit facility to support future investment opportunities.”

Fiscal Year 2018 Financial Guidance
The Company issued its FY2018 financial guidance affirming a net sales range of $352 to $359 million, adjusted earnings per share (EPS) of $0.64 to $0.68 and free cash flow of greater than $35 million.
