BASi Reports Further Improvement in Profitability Before Restructuring Charges for the Fourth Quarter of Fiscal 2012

WEST LAFAYETTE, IN -- (Marketwire) -- 12/27/12 -- Bioanalytical Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: BASI) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended September 30, 2012.

Interim President & CEO and CFO Jacqueline Lemke said, "The restructuring we implemented during the second half of fiscal 2012 allowed us to deliver the significant improvements in profitability before restructuring charges we anticipated. Consider that in the first half of fiscal 2012, we operated four facilities that generated combined revenue of about $14.5 million and an EBITDAR loss of $1.7 million. In the year's second half, we operated two facilities that generated combined revenue of $13.7 million and positive EBITDAR of $1.6 million. That's a $3.3 million improvement despite the reduction in revenue, which was of course the planned consequence of the consolidation of our Oregon laboratory into our West Lafayette facility and the closure of our UK lab.

"Also worth noting is that our cash position increased to $721,000 at fiscal year end versus $409,000 at the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2012, and we recently received a further extension of the maturity of our mortgage debt to October 31, 2013 from May 4, 2013.

"Capacity utilization and gross margins are up. With our costs in line and systems in place to keep them in line, we now have a healthy and sustainable business model for the future.

"We built this strong foundation for growth while maintaining the high quality services BASi has long been known for and completing development of the advanced new Culex® NxT in vivo sampling system we formally launched today. We are now accepting orders for Culex NxT and expect to begin deliveries in January.

"We also recently announced the first of a number of collaborative research projects and preferred provider partnerships we are negotiating and expect to complete over the coming months that should contribute to our performance beginning in the new fiscal year. This first collaborative project is a safety pharmacology study which combines Culex with our partner's newest large animal telemetry technology, and advances BASi's long-established and well-respected CRO services expertise.

"While it will take some time to offset the loss of revenue due to the restructuring, we believe our aggressive approach to sales and marketing focused on our competitive strengths -- specialty assay and discovery capabilities, a long history of regulatory excellence, and our market-changing Culex system -- in time will deliver the renewed revenue growth and greatly enhanced profitability we are striving for. We are optimistic about the outlook for fiscal 2013."

Fourth Quarter Results
For the three months ended September 30, 2012, revenue decreased to $6,540,000 compared to $8,153,000 for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011. This decrease partly reflected the consolidation of BASi's Oregon facility into its West Lafayette facility and the closure of its UK lab, as well as lower product revenue compared to the prior year.

Gross margin for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 was 32.9% compared to 27.6% for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011.

Operating expenses decreased to $1,785,000 for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to $2,630,000 for the same period a year earlier.

Operating income before restructuring increased to $369,000 compared to an operating loss of $382,000 for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011, and income before income taxes and restructuring charges increased to $199,000 compared to a loss of $618,000 for the prior year.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, restructuring and non-cash compensation expenses (EBITDAR) increased to $891,000 compared to $205,000 for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011, and increased sequentially compared to $716,000 for the third quarter of fiscal 2012. The Company recorded restructuring charges for the three months ended September 30, 2012 of $2,508,000, primarily consisting of UK exit costs. This is expected to be the final charge associated with the restructuring.

The GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 was $2,311,000, or $0.32 per share. This compares to a GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 of $668,000, or $0.10 per share.

Twelve Month Results
For the twelve months ended September 30, 2012, revenue decreased to $28,208,000 from $33,144,000 for fiscal 2011. EBITDAR for fiscal 2012 was a negative $118,000. This compares to EBITDAR for fiscal 2011 of a negative $682,000. The GAAP net loss for the year ended September 30, 2012 was $6,390,000, or $0.89 per share. This includes the recorded restructuring charges for the twelve months ended September 30, 2012 of $3,195,000. The GAAP net loss for the year ended September 30, 2011 included the accounting for the value of the warrants and preferred stock issued in a public offering in May 2011 that resulted in a deemed dividend to preferred stockholders, which was deducted from net earnings to compute GAAP earnings per share. After accounting for the preferred dividend, the net loss applicable to common shareholders for the year ended September 30, 2011 was $3,725,000, or $0.66 per share.

Balance Sheet Highlights
At September 30, 2012, BASi reported cash and cash equivalents of $721,000, total long-term obligations of $5,998,000, and shareholders' equity of $9,590,000, or $1.26 per outstanding share.

Non-GAAP to GAAP Reconciliation
This press release contains financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP). The non-GAAP financial measures are EBITDAR. EBITDAR refers to financial performance measures that exclude certain income statement line items, such as interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, and restructuring charges and/or exclude certain non-cash expenses as permitted by our credit agreements, such as stock-based compensation.

The non-GAAP financial information should be considered supplemental to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Management, however, believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when used in conjunction with the results presented in accordance with GAAP, may provide a more complete understanding of the Company's results and may facilitate a fuller analysis of the Company's results, particularly in evaluating performance from one period to another. Management has chosen to provide this supplemental information to investors, analysts, and other interested parties to enable them to perform additional analyses of results and to illustrate the results giving effect to the non-GAAP adjustments shown in the reconciliation. Management strongly encourages investors to review the Company's consolidated financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety and cautions investors that the non-GAAP measures used by the Company may differ from similar measures used by other companies, even when similar terms are used to identify such measures.

Non-GAAP Reconciliation
A reconciliation of reported results to adjusted results is included in this press release, which is also posted on BASi's website: www.BASInc.com.

There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
