Encision Reports Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2018 Results

BOULDER, Colo., Nov. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Encision Inc. (OTC: ECIA), a medical device company owning patented surgical technology that prevents dangerous stray electrosurgical burns in minimally invasive surgery, today announced financial results for its fiscal 2018 second quarter that ended September 30, 2017.

The Company posted quarterly net revenue of $2.16 million for a quarterly net income of $116 thousand, or $0.01 per diluted share. These results compare to net revenue of $2.15 million for a quarterly net loss of $240 thousand, or $(0.02) per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Net revenue for the current quarter included net revenue of $74 thousand from an order for non-AEM product. Gross margin on net revenue was 58% in the fiscal 2018 second quarter and 47% in the fiscal 2017 second quarter. Gross margin on net revenue was higher in the current quarter as a result of product mix and lower costs in manufacturing operations. Gross margin on net revenue was lowered further in the fiscal 2017 second quarter by higher slow moving and obsolete inventories costs.

The Company posted six months net revenue of $4.53 million for a six months net income of $298 thousand, or $0.03 per diluted share. These results compare to net revenue of $4.43 million for a six months net loss of $338 thousand, or $(0.03) per diluted share, in the year-ago six months. Net revenue for the current six months included net revenue of $329 thousand from an order for non-AEM product. Gross margin on net revenue was 58% in the fiscal 2018 six months and 50% in the fiscal 2017 six months. Gross margin on net revenue was higher in the current six months as a result of product mix and lower costs in manufacturing operations. Gross margin on net revenue was lowered further in the fiscal 2017 six months by higher slow moving and obsolete inventories costs.

Net cash of $374 thousand was generated by operating activities in the current six months compared to net cash of $162 thousand used in operating activities in last year's six months.

"We are pleased to deliver another profitable quarter and to have achieved a higher gross margin," said Greg Trudel, President and CEO.
