SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Accuray Incorporated (Nasdaq: ARAY), a global leader in the field of radiosurgery, today announced financial results for the fiscal third quarter ended March 31, 2007.
Total net revenues were $37.3 million for the fiscal third quarter 2007, as compared to $16.3 million for the fiscal third quarter 2006, an increase of 129 percent, and $26.3 million for the fiscal second quarter 2007, an increase of 42 percent.
For the fiscal third quarter 2007, product revenue was $29.5 million, an increase of 141 percent over the comparable period of 2006 and an increase of 53 percent over fiscal second quarter 2007.
Gross margin for the fiscal third quarter of 2007 was 59.0 percent, compared to gross margin in fiscal third quarter 2006 of 41.6 percent and gross margin in fiscal second quarter 2007 of 55.8 percent.
Operating expenses for the fiscal third quarter of 2007 were $22.9 million, compared to $14.3 million in fiscal third quarter 2006 and $22.0 million in fiscal second quarter 2007.
Total net income for the fiscal third quarter 2007 was $0.1 million, or approximately $0.00 per share, compared to a net loss of $7.7 million, or $0.48 per share, for the comparable fiscal quarter in 2006.
For the nine months ended March 31, 2007, total net revenues were $96.5 million, compared to $31.5 million for the same period in 2006, an increase of 206 percent.
The net loss for the nine months ended March 31, 2007 was $5.2 million, or $0.23 per share, compared to a net loss of $25.8 million, or $1.62 per share for the comparable period in 2006.
The Company reported that its results included stock compensation expenses of $3.7 million and $2.0 million for the fiscal quarters ended March 31, 2007 and March 31, 2006, respectively, and $8.8 million and $6.2 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2007 and March 31, 2006, respectively.
As of March 31, 2007, the Company's total backlog, which the Company now defines as backlog under signed non-contingent contracts as well as backlog under signed contingent contracts that the Company believes have a substantially high probability of being booked as revenue, was approximately $559 million. This represents a 60 percent increase and a 9 percent increase, respectively, over total backlog computed in accordance with this definition of $350 million at March 31, 2006 and $513 million at December 31, 2006. Of the Company's total backlog at March 31, 2007, $306 million was associated with CyberKnife System purchases and $253 million was associated with services and other recurring revenues.
Contingencies under customer contracts included in backlog include customer acceptance of the Company's legal terms and conditions of sale, hospital board approvals, customer establishment of necessary financing or legal entities and, in certain U.S. states, government approval of a certificate of need (CON) for the operation of a radiosurgery system. On a quarterly basis, the Company will review each contingent contract to determine whether progress toward satisfaction of contingencies is sufficient to support inclusion of the contract within backlog. Going forward, it is the Company's intention to provide information regarding total backlog in accordance with the definition described above on a quarterly basis.
At the end of the fiscal third quarter 2007, 97 CyberKnife Systems were installed at customer sites. This includes 87 systems sold directly to customers and 10 placed under shared ownership agreements. Of the 97 systems installed, 63 are in the Americas, 25 in Asia and 9 in Europe.
As of March 31, 2007, it is estimated that more than 30,000 patients have been treated with the CyberKnife System worldwide, up from an estimated 20,000 patients as of September 30, 2006. In the fiscal third quarter 2007, lung and prostate were the fastest growing clinical applications, increasing approximately 30 percent worldwide over the fiscal second quarter 2007.
"Our fiscal third quarter results demonstrate the continued recognition of the CyberKnife System as an effective treatment option for tumors anywhere in the body," said Euan S. Thomson, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of Accuray. "While the CyberKnife System continues to receive clinical acceptance in the treatment of brain tumors, we are experiencing rapid worldwide growth in many applications including the treatment of spine, lung and prostate tumors. The impressive growth that the CyberKnife System has gained in these applications is driven by our system's unique ability to autonomously track, detect and correct for tumor and patient movement in real- time during the procedure, enabling delivery of precise, high dose radiation with sub-millimeter accuracy. We believe these unique capabilities combined with the momentum of our sales organization will continue to drive our success in building the market for radiosurgery."
