3.5.2016 13:00 | NASDAQ OMX


DANVERS, Mass., 2016-05-03 13:00 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Abiomed, Inc. (NASDAQ:ABMD), a leading provider of breakthrough heart support technologies, today reported fourth quarter fiscal 2016 revenue of $94.0 million, an increase of 39% compared to revenue of $67.6 million for the same period of fiscal 2015.  For fiscal year 2016, total revenue was $329.5 million, up 43% compared to revenue of $230.3 million in fiscal year 2015. This revenue exceeds the third quarter upgraded fiscal year guidance of $326 million.

Fourth quarter fiscal 2016 GAAP net income was $11.0 million or $0.24 per diluted share. For the full fiscal year, GAAP net income was $38.1 million or $0.85 per diluted share.

Financial and operating highlights during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 include:

  • Fiscal fourth quarter worldwide Impella® heart pump revenue totaled $88.6 million, an increase of 40% compared to revenue of $63.4 million during the same period of the prior fiscal year.  Full year worldwide Impella revenue totaled $310.1 million, up 46% compared to $212.7 million for fiscal 2015. 
  • U.S. Impella heart pump revenue grew 42% to $81.8 million from $57.7 million in the prior fiscal year with U.S. patient usage of the Impella heart pumps up 45%.  Full year U.S. Impella revenue totaled $287.2 million, up 50% compared to $191.5 million in the prior fiscal year.
  • The installed base for Impella 2.5™ heart pumps grew by an additional 19 hospitals, which made initial purchases of Impella heart pumps, bringing the installed customer base to 1,039 sites.  As part of Abiomed's continued Impella CP® heart pump launch, 38 new U.S. hospitals purchased Impella CP, bringing the total number to 826 sites.  
  • The installed base for Impella RP® heart pumps grew by an additional 9 hospitals, bringing the total number to 80 sites.
  • Gross margin for fiscal fourth quarter 2016 was 84.4% compared to 84.0% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015.  For the full fiscal year, gross margin was 84.7% compared to 82.7% in the prior year.
  • Income from operations for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 was $19.8 million, or 21%  operating margin, compared to $12.4 million, or 18.3% of revenue in the prior year period. For the full fiscal year, income from operations was $65.1 million, or 19.8% of revenue, compared to $28.7 million, or 12.4% of revenue in the prior year.
  • The Company generated $16.9 million in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities, totaling $213.1 million as of March 31, 2016, compared to $196.2 million at December 31, 2015. The Company currently has no debt. 
  • In the prior year, GAAP net income included an income tax benefit of $86.5 million largely due to the release of the valuation allowance on most of Abiomed’s deferred tax assets. The release of the valuation allowance was a one-time accounting adjustment in the prior year. As such, fourth quarter fiscal 2015 GAAP net income was $98.9 million ($86.5 million driven by one-time adjustment) or $2.24 per diluted share and full fiscal year GAAP net income was $113.7 million or $2.65 per diluted share. As a comparison basis, GAAP income before taxes for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 was $20.2 million, as compared to $12.4 million, or a 63% increase over prior year.
  • On April 7, 2016, Abiomed announced that the Impella 2.5, Impella CP and Impella 5.0™ heart pumps received Food & Drug Administration (FDA) pre-market approval (PMA) for cardiogenic shock. In the setting of cardiogenic shock, the Impella therapy stabilizes a patient’s hemodynamics, unloads the left ventricle, perfuses the end organs and per the indication, allows for heart recovery.

“Our performance validates Impella as the new standard of care and Abiomed as one of the fastest growing, GAAP profitable, medical technology companies.  We have a long run-way for growth as today we estimate that we have penetrated only 5% of the total high risk patient population,” said Michael R. Minogue, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Abiomed. “I am proud of our dedicated employees and grateful to our customers that have enabled our company to create a new era of medicine focused on the Field of Heart Recovery.  Fiscal 2017 is positioned to be a fantastic year as we continue to execute our plan with our exclusive regulatory approvals.”

The Company is giving its fiscal year 2017 guidance for total revenues to be in the range of $430 million to $445 million, an increase of 30% to 35% over the prior year. The Company is also giving its fiscal year 2017 guidance for GAAP operating margin to be in the range of 18% to 20%.
