Oculus Innovative Sciences Reports Third Quarter Financial Results

U.S. Dermatology and Rest of the World Sales Drive Product Revenue Growth of 40%

Conference Call at 4:30pm ET Today

PETALUMA, Calif., Feb. 04, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oculus Innovative Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ:OCLS) (warrants OCLSW), a specialty pharmaceutical company that develops and markets solutions for the treatment of dermatological conditions and advanced tissue care, today announced financial results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2016 ended December 31, 2015.

Total revenue was $3.8 million for the third quarter, an increase of 19%, when compared to $3.2 million for the same period in 2014.  Product revenues were up 40% from the same period last year, led by increases in the United States dermatology market and the rest of world.

"We made a strategic decision in late 2014 to change our business model and enter the U.S. dermatology market directly.  We deployed a direct U.S. sales force and over the last four quarters launched a total of six new prescription dermatology products.  These efforts, combined with strong pricing reimbursement and rapid sales ramps, resulted in healthy sales growth during this quarter and over the last twelve months," said Oculus CEO Jim Schutz.  "We believe our growth in dermatology sales will continue as we launch new products, continue to ramp sales for our existing products lines and hire additional sales people."

Results for the Three Months Ended December 31, 2015
Product revenue in the United States was $1.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015, as compared to $647,000 in the quarter ended December 31, 2014. Product revenues increased $363,000 or 56%.  Sales increased primarily due to continued growth in four existing products for the treatment of atopic dermatitis, scar management and surgical procedures, and the addition of two new products, including Mondoxyne, a pharmaceutical indicated for severe acne.

Product revenue in Latin America for the quarter ended December 31, 2015, of $1.3 million increased by $185,000 , or 17%, when compared to the same period in the prior year. This increase was dampened by a 22% decline in the value of the peso from the same period in prior year. The sales growth in local currency, over the same period in the prior year, was 43% with strong increases in most product categories. The increase in revenue is primarily attributed to the larger distribution network and breadth of Oculus partner, Laboratorios Sanfer, S.A. de C.V.

Product revenue in Europe and the rest of the world for the quarter ended December 31, 2015, of $1.2 million, increased by $451,000, or 60%, as compared to the same period in the prior year, with the largest increases in Asia and the Middle East with a 19% increase in Europe. The sales growth in local currency in Europe was 36% for the quarter when compared to the same period in prior year.

For the three months ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, product licensing fees and royalty revenues were $120,000 and $555,000, respectively.  The decrease is primarily related to the lower amortization of upfront payments from the company's partner, Sanfer, in Latin America and the termination of Oculus' agreement with its former animal healthcare partner.

Oculus reported gross profit of $1.5 million, or 40%, during the three months ended December 31, 2015, compared to a gross profit of $1.7 million, or 51% when compared to the same period in the prior year. The decline in gross profitability was due to the higher dollar increase of international revenue, which has lower product margins than products sold in the United States, and the decline in product licensing fees and royalty revenues of $435,000.

Total operating expenses of $4.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2015, increased by $1 million, or 29%, as compared to the same period in the prior year. Operating expenses minus non-cash expenses during the third quarter of fiscal year 2015 were $4.1 million, up $858,000, as compared to the same period in the prior year.  The increase in operating expenses, minus non-cash expenses, was due to higher sales and marketing expenses in the United States related to the costs of a direct sales force in dermatology.  

Net loss for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 was $3.1 million, a decrease of $2.8 million, as compared to net loss of $5.9 million for the same period in the prior year. The decrease is primarily due to an impairment loss recorded in the three months ended December 31, 2014 in the amount of $4.7 million related to an investment in Ruthigen, offset by a $679,000 gain due to a change in fair value of derivative liabilities reported in the same period. Additionally, selling, general and administrative expenses increase of $920,000 in the three months ended December 31, 2015

As of December 31, 2015, Oculus had unrestricted cash and cash equivalents of $6.1 million, as compared with $6.1 million as of March 31, 2015. The company has no debt outstanding.

Results for the Nine Months Ended December 31, 2015
Total revenues of $11.6 million increased by $1.7 million, or 17%, for the nine months ended December 31, 2015, as compared to $9.9 million for the nine months ended December 31, 2014. Product revenue of $9.8 million increased $3.1 million, or 47%, with strong growth in all major segments, led by product revenue growth in the United States of $1.6 million, an increase of 120%.  Latin America's revenue was up 22%, despite a 21% decline in the peso and rest of world's revenue was up 38% with strong growth in Asia.

Oculus reported gross profit of $5.5 million, or 47%, for the nine months ended December 31, 2015, compared to a gross profit of $5.3 million, or 54%, for the same period in the prior year.  The decrease in gross profitability was caused by a decline in license and royalty revenues of $1.7 million offset by the gross profit related to the increase in product revenues of $3.1 million in the same period.

Total operating expenses less non-cash expenses increased $2.2 million, or 24%, for the nine months compared to the same period in the prior year, primarily due to higher sales costs for the direct sales force for dermatology.  Operating loss less non-cash expenses (EBITDAS) for the nine months ended December 31, 2015, was $5.5 million, compared to $3.5 million for the same period last year.  The net loss for the nine months ended December 31, 2014 includes non-cash impairment losses related to an investment in Ruthigen of $4.7 million, partly offset by a non-cash gain of $3.0 million related to a reduction in Oculus' derivative liability relating to certain warrants reported in the same period.
