Sonoma Pharmaceuticals Reports First Quarter FY 2020 Financial Results

/EIN News/ -- Strong Quarter-Over-Quarter Performance

  • 26% Increase in U.S. Product Revenue
  • 46% Increase in Dermatology Revenue
  • 23% Reduction in Operating Expenses

PETALUMA, Calif., Aug. 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sonoma Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNOA), a specialty pharmaceutical company dedicated to identifying, developing and commercializing unique, differentiated therapies to millions of patients living with chronic skin conditions, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended June 30, 2019.

“We are pleased with the strong growth for the first quarter ended June 30, 2019. We have significantly slowed our cash burn and continue to build a sustainable business,” said Bubba Sandford, CEO of Sonoma Pharmaceuticals. “Our performance in dermatology has improved substantially, resulting in gross margins of 50% of total revenues compared to 40% a year ago, and our efforts to grow revenues while containing expenses resulted in one of our strongest quarters to date. While our quarterly results were impacted by one-time sale of our animal rights in Asia, revenue growth in our core U.S. dermatology business year-over-year out-paced our total revenue growth.”

Results for the Quarter Ended June 30, 2019

Total revenue of $4.7 million for the first quarter ended June 30, 2019, increased by $342,000, or 8%, from $4.4 million for the same period last year. Product revenues of $4.4 million for the first quarter ended June 30, 2019, were up by 7%, or $290,000, when compared to $4.1 million in the same period last year. This increase was primarily the result of growth in product revenue of $516,000, or 26%, in the United States, and growth of product revenue of $199,000, or 19%, in Europe and Rest of World offset by a decrease of $425,000, or 39% in Latin America primarily due to timing of orders from our customer in Mexico.

Product revenues in the United States for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 of $2,487,000 increased by $516,000, or 26%, as compared to $1,971,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. This increase was primarily the result of an increase of $551,000, or 46%, in sales of dermatology products, and an increase of $74,000, or 19%, in sales of acute care products offset by a decrease of $125,000 in sales of animal health care products.

During the quarter ended June 30, 2019, Sonoma reported total revenues of $4.7 million and cost of revenues of $2.3 million resulting in total gross profit of $2.4 million, or 50% of total revenue, compared to a gross profit of $1.7 million, or 40% of total revenue in the same period last year. The improved gross margins are primarily the result of an increase in dermatology revenues combined with cost savings in the U.S.

Total operating expenses during the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 were $4.1 million, down $1.2 million, or 23%, as compared to the same period in the prior year. This decrease in operating expenses was primarily due to lower employee costs resulting from a reduction in headcount combined with cost-cutting across all divisions. 

Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was $715,000, up $4.2 million, or 121%, compared net loss of $3.5 million for the same period last year. The increase in net income is primarily due to a decrease in operating loss of $1,820,000 due to an increase in sales and a decrease in operating expenses of $1.2 million. Additionally, for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, Sonoma reported income related to the sale of certain assets to Petagon in the amount of $2,472,000.

As of June 30, 2019, Sonoma had cash and cash equivalents of $4.3 million compared to $3.7 million at March 31, 2019. The operating loss minus non-cash expenses (EBITDA) was $1.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, compared to $3.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.
