TEL AVIV, Israel, November 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
InspireMD, Inc. ("InspireMD" or the "Company") (OTC: NSPR) announced financial results for the period ended September 30, 2012, the first quarter of its 2013 fiscal year.
As previously indicated, revenue declined from the same period in 2011 due mainly to stocking and selling disruptions caused by a realignment of the Company's distributors in advance of the presentation of the MASTER trial of its MGuard™ Embolic Protective Stent (EPS) at the 24th Annual Transcathter Therapeutics (TCT) scientific meeting in Miami on October 24.
The positive results, presented at the TCT's Late Breaking Clinical Trials Session by Study Chairman Gregg W. Stone, MD, showed that the novel MGuard EPS provided a statistically and clinically significant acute advantage and, as a result, may hold the potential to lower the incidence of adverse sequela and prolong survival of heart attack victims.
MGuard EPS is CE Mark approved. It is not approved for sale in the U.S. by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) at this time. The Company plans to initiate a FDA approval study on or before March 31, 2013.
Key financial highlights 1Q ended September 30, 2012 include:
--Revenue for the period ended September 30, 2012 totaled $509,000, compared to $1,986,000 in the same period in 2011, a decrease of $1,477,000, or 74.4 percent, due largely to anticipated disruptions in stocking and sales activities in the periods leading up to the TCT.
--Gross profit for the Sept. 30 2012 period was $279,000, compared to $1,185,000 for the Sept. 30, 2011 period, a decline of 76.5 percent.
--Total operating expenses for the Sept. 30, 2012 period were $3,560,000, compared to $3,335,000 in the Sept. 30, 2011 period. A $274,000 decrease in G&A in the Sept. 30, 2012 period was offset by a $399,000 increase in R&D (mainly to support the MASTER trial), and a slight increase in sales and marketing expense.
--The loss from operations for the Sept. 30, 2012 period was ($3,281,000), compared to ($2,150,000) for the Sept. 30, 2011 period.
--$4,225,000 in financial and tax expenses for the Sept. 30, 2012 period brought the final net loss to ($7,506,000), or ($0.11) per basic and diluted share. Financial and tax expenses for the Sept. 30, 2011 period were $133,000, bringing final net loss for the period to ($2,283,000), or ($0.04) per basic and diluted share.
--At September 30, 2012, cash and cash equivalents stood at approximately $8.3 million, compared to $10.3 million at June 30, 2012.
--The MASTER trial of MGuard EPS, presented on Oct. 24 at TCT, met its primary endpoint (proportion of patients with ST segment resolution of ≥ 70%, measured at 60 to 90 minutes post procedure), showing the MGuard EPS was significantly superior to the control arm of bare metal and drug eluting stents in the treatment of heart attack patients.
--During the past month, the Company instituted changes which it believes will strengthen relationships with its best distribution partners, and it is in the process of appointing new distributors in certain territories.
--Direct sales channels are being established in key European countries where end user average selling prices and the lack of strong distributors are limiting factors.
--Five experienced sales and marketing executives joined the Company last month to help bolster sales of MGuard EPS following the MASTER trial through third party distribution and direct sales channels.
About Stenting and MGuard EPS
Standard stents weren't engineered for heart attack patients. They were designed for treating stable angina patients whose occlusion is different from that of an occlusion in a heart attack patient.
In acute heart attack patients, the plaque or thrombus is unstable and often breaks up as the stent is implanted causing downstream blockages (some of which can be fatal) in a significant portion of heart attack patients.
The MGuard EPS is integrated with a precisely engineered micro net mesh that prevents the unstable arterial plaque and thrombus (clots) that caused the heart attack blockage from breaking off.
While offering superior performance relative to standard stents in STEMI patients, the MGuard EPS requires no change in current physician practice - an important factor in promoting acceptance and general use in time-critical emergency settings.
