Abiomed Announces Q1 FY 2018 Revenue of $132.5 Million, Up 29% Over Prior Year
Company announces Japanese reimbursement for Impella® heart pumps and raises lower end of FY 2018 revenue guidance
DANVERS, Mass., July 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Abiomed, Inc. (NASDAQ:ABMD), a leading provider of breakthrough heart support technologies, today reported first quarter fiscal 2018 revenue of $132.5 million, an increase of 29% compared to revenue of $103.0 million for the same period of fiscal 2017. First quarter fiscal 2018 GAAP net income was $37.4 million or $0.82 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net income of $12.9 million or $0.29 per diluted share for the prior year period.
Financial and operating highlights during the first quarter of fiscal 2018 include:
Fiscal first quarter worldwide revenue from Impella® heart pumps totaled $127.2 million, an increase of 30% compared to revenue of $97.8 million during the same period of the prior fiscal year. U.S. revenue from Impella heart pumps grew 28% to $114.7 million and U.S. Impella patient usage grew 27%.
Outside the U.S., revenue from Impella heart pumps totaled $12.5 million and was up 53%, predominately from Germany, which grew 62% in revenue from the prior fiscal year.
The installed base for Impella 2.5® heart pumps in the U.S. grew by an additional 16 hospitals, which made initial purchases of Impella heart pumps, bringing the installed customer base to 1,154 sites. The installed customer base for Impella CP® heart pumps grew by 46 new U.S. hospitals, bringing the total number of Impella CP sites to 1,062. The installed customer base for Impella 5.0® heart pumps grew by 19 new U.S. hospitals, bringing the total number of Impella 5.0 sites to 472.
An additional 15 sites made initial purchases of the Impella RP® heart pumps during the quarter, bringing the total number to 142 sites.
Gross margin for fiscal first quarter 2018 was 83.5% compared to 85.4% in the first quarter of fiscal 2017.
Operating income for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 was $33.1 million, or 25.0% operating margin, compared to $21.2 million, or 20.6% operating margin in the prior year period.
First quarter fiscal 2018 GAAP net income was $37.4 million or $0.82 per diluted share, which benefited from the adoption of a new accounting standard that required $16.8 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, of excess tax benefits related to employee share-based compensation awards be recorded as a reduction of income tax expense. This compared to GAAP net income of $12.9 million or $0.29 per diluted share for the prior year period, before new accounting standards.
The Company generated $12.0 million in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities, totaling $289.1 million as of June 30, 2017, compared to $277.1 million at March 31, 2017. The Company incurs annual cash outlays in the first quarter and currently has no debt.
The Company has recently received approval from the Japanese Ministry Health Labour and Welfare (MHLW) for reimbursement on Impella 2.5 and 5.0 Impella heart pumps and 10 physician societies have completed the hospital guidance document. At recent average exchange rates, reimbursement in Japan is estimated to be $24,000, equivalent to our Impella sales price in the U.S., and commences this September. We expect our first Japanese patient in September and are reiterating our controlled Impella launch at 10 hospitals by end of this fiscal year in March.
On June 30, a new study of Abiomed's Impella 2.5 heart pump demonstrated potential survival benefit with pre-PCI insertion in heart attacks with the left main coronary artery.
"We have been notified by MHLW of Japanese reimbursement for Impella beginning in September allowing our introduction into the world's second largest medical device market," said Michael R. Minogue, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Abiomed. "Our continued execution validates Abiomed as one of the fastest growing medical technology companies with increasing GAAP profitability and no debt. I am proud of our team's ability to consistently achieve our strategic initiatives and execute on our tactical plan as Abiomed builds the Field of Heart Recovery."
