STAAR Surgical Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2012 Financial Results

~Total Sales Increased 1% from Q4 2011

MONROVIA, Calif., Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- STAAR Surgical Company (NASDAQ: STAA), a leading developer, manufacturer and marketer of minimally invasive ophthalmic products, today reported revenue for the fourth quarter ended December 28, 2012 of $16.5 million compared to $16.4 million reported for the fourth quarter of 2011. The effect of foreign currency exchange reduced sales by $275,000 during the quarter.  The results included sales of $8.8 million of the Company's Visian® ICL product portfolio and $6.8 million of its IOL products.

"The Visian ICL continued to gain market share in our key markets during 2012, though sales decreased 2.5% in the fourth quarter compared with the prior year," said Barry Caldwell, president and CEO.  "Visian ICL unit sales as compared to Market Scope's newly released annual data on global refractive procedures confirm that the ICL is gaining share in virtually every key market.  The major reason our ICL revenues declined in the quarter was due to an adjustment in the normal inventory levels carried at year end by our Korean distributor.  Sales to our Korean distributor decreased 50% as compared to the fourth quarter a year ago.  We are encouraged by the ordering patterns from our Korean distributor during the first two months of 2013.  January was a record month for sales to end customers and their purchases from us through February already reflect a 60% increase as compared to the same period of 2012."

"Visian ICL sales in our European markets increased by 25% during the fourth quarter reflecting the growing acceptance of the new Visian ICL CentraFLOW™ technology," added Mr. Caldwell. "In Spain, where we moved to a direct sales model at mid-year, sales increased only 24% during the quarter.  In the past under the distributor sales model, inventory would be purchased for January sales.  This does not occur in the direct sales model.  As we would expect, ICL sales in Spain during the first eight weeks of this year have more than doubled and our sales have already exceeded the sales level of the entire first quarter of 2012.  In the U.S., ICL sales increased by 9% reflecting encouraging patterns which developed during the second half of the year.  We have gained market share during 2012 while others have disclosed a decrease in the number of LASIK procedures during the same period.  In China, sales increased 13% reflecting the continuing downward pressure on refractive procedures from the negative LASIK publicity earlier in the year.  Japan sales were up 45% as compared to the fourth quarter of 2011 and our annual ICL unit volume doubled while Market Scope reported refractive procedures declined 22% for the year.

"Total IOL sales during the quarter were slightly ahead of the fourth quarter of 2011, but up 12% on a sequential basis.  Our preloaded acrylic IOL sales were up nearly $900,000 from the year ago period reflecting the contributions of the recently launched KS-SP.  We continue to experience supply constraints from a third party supplier on the KS-SP and had a backorder position of nearly $500,000 at the end of the quarter.  This backorder position has doubled during the first two months of this year and could be a limiting factor to our IOL sales for the entire year," said Mr. Caldwell.

Gross margin for the quarter was 67.8%, down from 69.8% in the fourth quarter of 2011.  These results reflect the sales mix of ICL product sales, KS-SP IOL sales, which carry a lower gross margin outside of Japan, and a $300,000 increase in Other Product sales during the fourth quarter.  Operating costs for the fourth quarter were $12.4 million, up 15% from the prior year period reflecting a 24% increase of investment spending in sales and marketing and a 13% increased investment in R&D. 

Income taxes were $466,000 during the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $370,000 during the fourth quarter of 2011 and $219,000 during the third quarter of 2012.  Some intercompany charges from the previous quarter decreased which resulted in lower expenses and higher income in jurisdictions in which the company pays tax.

The net loss for the fourth quarter of 2012, calculated in accordance with GAAP, was $1,414,000, or $0.04 on a per share basis, compared with net income of $109,000, or breakeven on a per diluted share basis, in the fourth quarter of 2011.  Adjusted net income (excluding manufacturing consolidation expenses, distribution transition expenses in Spain, gain (loss) on foreign currency transactions, fair value adjustment of warrants, and stock-based compensation expense) for the quarter ended December 28, 2012 was $495,000, or $0.01 per share versus adjusted net income for the year ago quarter of $1.5 million, or $0.04 per diluted share.  Cash and cash equivalents at December 28, 2012 totaled $21.7 million, which includes $3.5 million drawn down as required under the terms of the Company's revised line of credit with Mizuho Bank at a reduced annual interest rate of 1.5%.

"Our team is very excited about how we are positioned for renewed growth in 2013 and though only two months into the new year we are off to a very solid start," summarized Mr. Caldwell.  "Sales in 2012 did not increase at the rate we expected, but a lot of progress has been made in the business and the Visian ICL continues to gain market share despite downward pressure globally refractive procedures.  During the past few months, members of our Board of Directors and senior management have purchased STAAR shares on the open market due to our belief that we are well positioned to generate returns for our shareholders.  We have made significant investments in our future including:

  • The addition of 19 new sales and marketing positions during the past 15 months to help drive revenue growth.  This includes our investment in moving to a direct distribution model in Spain and expanded marketing of the Visian ICL through social media.
  • Increased spending in Research and Development by 10% over 2011 levels should help speed additional new technologies to the market.
  • We expect our efforts during 2012 should produce regulatory approval of the ICL CentraFLOW technology in Korea and India during the first half of 2013.
  • We expect a full marketing launch of the Visian ICL V5 for Europe at the ESCRS meeting during early October.
  • Continued acceptance of the KS-SP IOL and nanoFLEX Toric IOL in key markets.
  • This year will mark the final year of the Project Comet efforts which will yield benefits in gross margin expansion and lower tax expense."

Recent Visian Implantable Collamer® Lens (ICL) Highlights

  • ICL sales represented 53.2% of total sales, as compared to 54.8% of sales in Q4 2011.
  • Visian ICL with CentraFLOW™ technology was a key driver to the 25% growth in the European markets during the fourth quarter of 2012. There have been nearly 14,000 implants of the Visian ICL with the CentraFLOW technology and it is performing very well.
  • Other key markets which saw significant growth during the fourth quarter included Spain, Germany, Italy, and the UK.
  • In the U.S. ICL sales grew 9% with increases seen in both the civilian and military sectors.   Promotional activities including some of the initial benefits from our social media marketing were additional drivers of ICL market share gains.

 Recent Intraocular Lens (IOL) Highlights

  • Fourth quarter IOL sales were flat at $6.8 million compared to the fourth quarter of 2011.  Sequentially, fourth quarter IOL sales increased 12%, or $734,000, from the third quarter of 2012. 
  • Preloaded Acrylic sales were up nearly $900,000 from Q4 2011. The Company ended the year with high backorders on preloaded acrylic due to supply constraints from a third party supplier.
  • IOL gross margins declined primarily due to the increase of the lower margin preloaded acrylic IOL sales in Europe and China.

Project Comet Update

  • Successfully completed validation of V4, V4b and V4c ICLs, initiated manufacturing and shipped the first U.S. manufactured Visian ICL to customers on January 24, 2013.
  • Obtained regulatory approval for U.S. manufactured ICLs in Europe, Japan, Korea and China representing approximately 70% of ICL unit volume.
  • Successfully completed requirements and transferred to the U.S. cartridge manufacturing and final inspection, assembly, and pouching for Preloaded Silicone IOLs.  All non-sterile IOLs for Japan are now manufactured and shipped from the U.S.
  • Received commitments from several key employees from Japan and Switzerland to relocate either temporarily or permanently to the U.S.

Full Year 2012 Financial Highlights

  • Total net sales in 2012 increased 2% to $63.8 million from $62.8 million in 2011.  Foreign currency changes unfavorably impacted net sales by $62,000 in 2012 and favorably impacted net sales by $1.7 million in 2011. 
  • Visian ICL sales totaled $35.1 million, 9.4% above sales of $32.1 million reported in 2011. 
  • IOL sales totaled $26 million, compared to sales of $27.5 million in 2011.
  • Gross margin increased to 69.4% of revenue from 67.5% for 2011 representing an increase of 190 bps. The increase was largely attributable to a higher mix of ICL sales, 55% as compared to 51.1%, and improved cost of goods.
  • Total operating expenses were $45.5 million, a 15% increase over 2011 expenses of $39.6 million.  Manufacturing consolidation expenses totaled $2.6 million during the year.  Operating expenses, before manufacturing consolidation expenses, were $42.9 million, an 11% increase over 2011.  Expenses associated with the transfer of sales to a direct model in Spain added approximately $1.1 million in expenses that will be completed at the end of the first quarter.  Foreign currency changes did not materially impact operating expenses for the year. 
  • Calculated in accordance with GAAP, the net loss totaled $1.8 million in 2012, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared with net income of $1.3 million, or $0.04 per diluted share in 2011.
  • Adjusted net income (which excludes manufacturing consolidation expenses, distribution transition expenses in Spain, gain or loss on foreign currency transactions, fair value adjustment of warrants and non-cash share-based compensation expense) was $4.8 million or $0.13 per diluted share in 2012, compared to adjusted net income of $4.4 million or $0.12 per diluted share in 2011. 
  • The Company generated $3.2 million in cash from operations in 2012 compared with $5.3 million in cash in 2011. The Company used $350,000 in cash for the expansion of existing facilities in Monrovia, California and $2.2 million in cash for manufacturing consolidation expenses. 

2013 Metrics

Looking ahead, the Company offered the following key metrics that management will focus on achieving during 2013 and upon which it will report and update each quarter:

  • Total revenue growth in the range of eight to 10%.  The first quarter should start at the lower range and increase throughout the year.
  • Gross margin expansion by a minimum of 250 bps for the year.
  • Profitable on a GAAP basis each quarter.
  • Make continuous quarterly progress towards the full implementation of manufacturing consolidation from Japan and Switzerland facilities by the end of 2013.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes supplemental non-GAAP financial information, which STAAR believes investors will find helpful in understanding its operating performance.  "Adjusted Net Income" excludes the following items that are included in "Net Income (Loss)" as calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"):   manufacturing consolidation expenses, Spain distribution transition expenses, gain or loss on foreign currency transactions, the fair value adjustment of outstanding warrants issued in 2007, and stock-based compensation expenses. 

We believe that "Adjusted Net Income" is useful to investors in gauging the outcome of the key drivers of our business performance:  our ability to increase sales revenue and our ability to increase profit margin by improving the mix of high value products while reducing the costs over which we have control. 

We have excluded manufacturing consolidation and Spain distribution transition expenses because these are non-recurring expenses and their inclusion may mask underlying trends in our business performance.  Expenses associated with the Company's plans to consolidate its manufacturing operations to the U.S. are largely expected to be completed at the end of 2013 and the Spain distribution transition expenses will be completed before the end of the first quarter of 2013.

We have excluded gains and losses on foreign currency transactions and the fair value adjustment of warrants because of the significant fluctuations that can result from period to period as a result of market driven factors.

Stock-based compensation expenses consist of expenses for stock options and restricted stock under Statement of Financial Accounting Standards ("SFAS") No. 123R.  In calculating Adjusted Net Income STAAR excludes these expenses and the fair value adjustment of outstanding warrants because they are non-cash expenses and because of the complexity and considerable judgment involved in calculating their values.  In addition, these expenses tend to be driven by fluctuations in the price of our stock and not by the same factors that generally affect our other business expenses.

We have provided below a detailed reconciliation table, which is useful to investors in providing the context to understand our Adjusted Net Income and how it differs from Net Income (Loss) calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Safe Harbor

All statements in this press release that are not statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements, including statements about any of the following: any projections of earnings, revenue, sales, profit margins, cash or any other financial items; the plans, strategies, and objectives of management for future operations or prospects for achieving such plans; metrics for 2013; statements regarding new products, including but not limited to, expectations for success of the new ICL, KS-SP and nanoFLEX Toric IOL products in the U.S. or international markets or government approval of new products; future economic conditions or size of market opportunities; expected savings from business consolidation plans and the timetable for those plans; statements of belief; and any statements of assumptions underlying any of the foregoing.

These statements are based on expectations and assumptions as of the date of this press release and are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements. The risks and uncertainties include the following: our limited capital resources and limited access to financing; the negative effect of unstable global economic conditions on sales of products, especially products such as the ICL used in non-reimbursed elective procedures; the challenge of managing our foreign subsidiaries; backlog as we prepare for our manufacturing facility consolidation; the risk of unfavorable changes in currency exchange rate; the discretion of regulatory agencies to approve or reject new products, or to require additional actions before approval; unexpected costs or delays that could reduce or eliminate the expected benefits of our consolidation plans; the risk that research and development efforts will not be successful or may be delayed in delivering for launch; the purchasing patterns of our distributors carrying inventory in the market; the willingness of surgeons and patients to adopt a new product and procedure; patterns of Visian ICL use that have typically limited our penetration of the refractive surgery market, and a general decline in the demand for refractive surgery particularly in the U.S. and the Asia Pacific region, which STAAR believes has resulted from both concerns about the safety and effectiveness of laser procedures and current economic conditions.  The Visian Toric ICL and the Visian ICL with CentraFLOW are not yet approved for sale in the United States.

Software AG helps organizations transform into Digital Enterprises, so they can differentiate from competitors and better engage customers, partners and employees. Using the Software AG Suite, companies can close the gap between business and IT to create digital systems of differentiation that drive front-line agility. We offer four on-ramps to the Digital Enterprise: alignment through collaborative process analysis; transformation through portfolio management; agility through process automation and integration; and visibility through intelligent business operations and big data.
There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.

With the iCloud scandal seemingly in its past, Apple announced new iPhones, updates to iPad and MacBook as well as news on OSX Yosemite. Although consumers will have to wait to get their hands on some of that new stuff, what they can get is the latest release of iOS 8 that Apple made available for most in-market iPhones and iPads. Originally announced at WWDC (Apple’s annual developers conference) in June, iOS 8 seems to spearhead Apple’s newfound focus upon greater integration of their products into everyday tasks, cross-platform mobility and self-monitoring. Before you update your device, here is a look at some of the new features and things you may want to consider from a mobile security perspective.
