ThermoGenesis Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2012 Results
ADVANCES KEY STRATEGIC MILESTONES

RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif., Feb. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ThermoGenesis Corp. (NASDAQ: KOOL), a leading supplier of innovative products and services that process and store adult stem cells, today reported results for the second quarter of fiscal 2012.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2011, the Company reported sales of $4.8 million. This compares to revenues of $5.9 million in the second quarter a year ago and $4.9 million in the prior quarter. Disposable sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2012 were $3.5 million, compared to $3.4 million a year ago and $3.5 million in the prior quarter. ThermoGenesis reported a net loss of $1.3 million, or $0.08 per share, in the second quarter of fiscal 2012, compared to a net loss of $486,000, or $0.03 per share, in the same period a year ago.

"Although our BioArchive sales were noticeably affected by the continuing debt crisis versus the quarter a year ago, we are pleased with our progress along the strategic front, having signed a major development and distribution deal with Arthrex, and having published positive clinical data regarding the safety and efficacy of our Res-Q bone marrow concentration system," said Matthew Plavan the Company's Chief Executive Officer.

The Company ended the quarter with $8.7 million in cash compared with $12.3 million at the end of fiscal 2011.  

For the first six months of fiscal 2012, ThermoGenesis reported revenues of $9.6 million compared to revenues of $12.9 million in the first six months of fiscal 2011. The Company reported a net loss of $2.5 million, or $0.15 per share, compared to a net loss of $554,000, or $0.04 per share, in the same period a year ago.

Plavan noted the Company had recently realized several important milestones, including:

  • Signing a five-year collaboration with Arthrex, Inc., under which ThermoGenesis, in consultation with Arthrex's on staff clinicians, has developed two line extensions of Res-Q®, specifically formulated to produce a proprietary composition of platelet rich plasma (PRP) and bone marrow concentrate. Arthrex has global exclusive distribution rights for this proprietary, private-labeled product. The Company expects to record initial revenues from this agreement in its fourth fiscal quarter.
  • Receiving approval of the AXP® AutoXpress® Platform (AXP) from India's Ministry of Health.
  • Being selected by Canadian Blood Services to provide the BioArchive System for a new public cord blood bank that will commence operations a year from now.
  • Presenting data from Critical Limb Ischemia and long bone fracture clinical evaluations using concentrates prepared by the Res-Q that demonstrate initial positive outcomes.

On January 30, 2012, the Company announced it had implemented changes in management responsibilities to maximize its progress toward its strategic goals. Plavan was named Chief Executive Officer and a member of the board of directors, while retaining his position as Chief Financial Officer. He replaced J. Melville Engle, who retired from his position as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. The Company also eliminated eight additional positions.

"As we indicated at that time, our board of directors believed structural changes were necessary if the Company was going to achieve its short-term objectives and be positioned for long-term growth. These changes are designed to recalibrate our resources to current revenues and the cadence of new market opportunities, while continuing to support our product quality and development, customer service and business development initiatives," Plavan said.
