Fourth Quarter Financial Results

Product revenues for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 were $8.1 million, an increase of 175% when compared to the same period of fiscal 2012. Our gross margin for the fourth quarter of this year was 73% compared to 70% in fiscal 2012. We reported income before taxes from continuing operations of $0.2 million for the quarter and, as a result of the Prochymal transaction, we recognized a $3.6 million income tax credit resulting in income from continuing operations of $3.7 million for the quarter. We recognized a loss from continuing operations of $0.8 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012.

We consummated the Prochymal transaction in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 and recognized a gain from the sale of the Prochymal assets of $47.2 million, after income tax expense of $3.9 million. We recognized the initial consideration of $50.0 million on the Prochymal transaction and will recognize the contingent consideration of up to an additional $50.0 million if and when it is received. Our balance sheet includes Trading Securities of $17.1 million which is shares of restricted stock as well as the value of the down-side protection on market value declines on the stock when it becomes available for sale in December 2014. Our balance sheet also includes $15.0 million of Other Receivables, which represents the cash payment we are scheduled to receive in April 2014.

We reported net income of $49.8 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to a net loss of $2.6 million in the prior fiscal year.

Full Year 2013 Financial Highlights

Revenues of $24.3 million were recognized in fiscal 2013, a three-fold increase over the prior year. Gross profit increased to 73% from 67% recognized in fiscal 2012, primarily as the result of manufacturing efficiencies. Research and Development expenses of $5.0 million were incurred in fiscal 2013 in furtherance of our Grafix DFU trial and investments in product development. Selling, general and administrative expenses were $15.5 million in fiscal 2013 compared to $5.6 million in fiscal 2012. The relative increase in SG&A costs in fiscal 2013 was slightly down from the prior year, but still 64% of product revenue as we continue to heavily invest in building our commercial, selling and marketing capabilities.

We reported income from continuing operations of $1.1 million in fiscal 2013, after recognizing an income tax benefit of $3.5 million from the partial release of the valuation allowance on our deferred tax assets, which was facilitated by the gain recognized on the sale of our Prochymal assets. In fiscal 2012, we reported a loss from continuing operations of $5.7 million.

Income from discontinued operations of $40.5 million was recognized in fiscal 2013, which consists of the $6.7 million loss on the operations of discontinued operations which was offset by the gain from sale of discontinued operations of $47.2 million. We recognized income tax expense of $3.9 million related to the gain on sale. In fiscal 2012, we reported a loss from discontinued operations of $5.3 million.

Basic earnings of $1.25 per share (diluted earnings per share of $1.22) were reported for fiscal 2013 compared to a basic and diluted loss per share of $0.34 in fiscal 2012. We ended the year with current assets of $84.1 million and current liabilities of $10.7 million.
