STUART, FL--(Marketwire - December 24, 2012) - Liberator Medical Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: LBMH) announced net revenues for fiscal year 2012 of $60,943,000, an increase of $8,245,000, or 15.6%, compared with sales of $52,698,000 for fiscal year 2011. The increase in sales was primarily due to the Company's continued direct response advertising campaign to acquire new customers and its emphasis on customer service to maximize the reorder rates for its recurring customer base. Liberator's direct response advertising expenditure for fiscal year 2012 was $13,113,000, compared to $15,245,000 for fiscal year 2011. For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, the Company reported net revenues of $16,516,000, representing a 10.4% increase over third quarter 2012 net revenues of $14,961,000.
Net income for fiscal year 2012 increased by $2,242,000, or 866%, to $2,501,000, compared with fiscal year 2011 net income of $259,000. Net income for fiscal year 2011 included a $902,000 non-cash expense for the change in fair value of an embedded derivative, which was eliminated upon conversion of a convertible note during the first quarter of fiscal year 2011. The balance of the increase in net income was driven by increased sales volumes and improved operating margins during fiscal year 2012.
The Company had cash of $3,326,000 at September 30, 2012, compared with $3,016,000 at September 30, 2011, an increase of $310,000. This increase in cash during fiscal year 2012 was primarily due to $1,000,000 of borrowings from its credit line facility, partially offset by $546,000 in net cash used in operating activities and $151,000 for purchases of property and equipment.
Cash used in operating activities in fiscal 2012 was $546,000, which represents an improvement of $3,947,000 compared with cash used in operating activities of $4,493,000 during fiscal year 2011. The improvement in operating cash flows during fiscal year 2012 was primarily driven by additional net income of $2,242,000, a reduction in direct response advertising spend of $2,132,000, partially offset by a decrease in changes in operating assets and liabilities of $449,000.
Mark Libratore, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: "We are very proud of our financial performance during fiscal year 2012. We increased our sales by 15% over last year, reduced our customer acquisition costs, increased our operating margins, and improved our operating cash flows for 2012. We will continue to invest in new technology and implement process improvements during fiscal year 2013 that we believe will improve overall productivity and contribute to increased profitability, while providing excellent service to our growing customer base.
We expect to manage the levels of our direct response advertising spend to maximize profitability and cash flows for fiscal year 2013, which may result in slower top-line sales growth. Based on our financial results from fiscal year 2012, we expect to continue to improve operating margins and cash flows for fiscal year 2013."
