Implant Sciences Reports Fourth Quarter And Fiscal 2013 Financial Results

September 30, 2013

FY 2013 Revenues Increase 253% to $12.0 million

WILMINGTON, Mass., Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Implant Sciences Corporation (OTCQB: IMSC), a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for the homeland security market and related industries, today announced financial results for the fiscal quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2013.

Revenues for the fourth quarter ended June 30, 2013 increased 335%, to $2.4 million, from $0.6 million for the comparable prior year period. Our net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 was $5.5 million as compared with a net loss of $4.4 million for the comparable prior year period, an increase of $1.1 million. The increase in the net loss is primarily due to $1.6 million of stock-based compensation recorded on option grants to our directors and officers in September 2012, increased operating expenses and increased interest expense.

Revenues for the year ended June 30, 2013 increased 253%, to $12.0 million, from $3.4 million for the comparable prior year period. Our net loss for the year ended June 30, 2013 was $27.4 million as compared with a net loss of $14.6 million for the comparable prior year period, an increase of $12.8 million. The increase in the net loss is primarily due to $13.9 million of stock-based compensation recorded on the September 2012 officer and director option grants, increased operating expenses and increased interest expense.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, stock-based compensation, warrants issued to non-employees and common stock issued to consultants (“Adjusted EBITDA”), which is reconciled to net income in this press release, calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, were a loss of $1,928,000 in the quarter ended June 30, 2013, compared to a loss of $2,550,000 in the comparable prior year period and a loss of $6,948,000 for the year ended June 30, 2013, compared to a loss of $8,057,000 in the comparable prior year period.

Glenn D. Bolduc, President and CEO of Implant Sciences, commented, “During our recently concluded fourth quarter and fiscal year, Implant Sciences achieved a number of important strategic goals that we believe position the Company for consistent and sustainable growth. We have taken important steps to broaden the markets we serve, increase our revenue opportunities, and improve our financial stability.” The following are some of our recent developments:

    --  In January 2013, our QS-B220 Desktop Trace Detector successfully
        completed independent validation testing with the Transportation
        Security Laboratory (the "TSL"), the testing body of the Transportation
        Security Administration (the "TSA"), and was accepted into the
        "Approved" section of the TSA's Air Cargo Screening Technology List.
    --  In July 2013, the QS-B220 successfully completed Independent Testing and
        Evaluation with the TSL and is currently in testing at the TSA Systems
        Integration Facility for qualification on the TSA's Qualified Product
        List for passenger checkpoint and checked baggage screening.
    --  We have received preliminary notification that the QS-B220 has been
        certified by the Service Technique de l'Aviation Civile ("STAC"), the
        French civil aviation authority.
    --  We continued global distribution of our QS-H150 handheld with sales to
        Japan, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe and to a U.S. Government
        agency.
    --  We achieved growing sales of our QS-B220 to customers including the U.S.
        Government and several domestic and international freight forwarders.
    --  During fiscal 2013, we filed three patent applications with and received
        two patents from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
    --  In June 2013, we opened American Implant Sciences Shanghai
        Representative Office, a marketing office in Shanghai, China, which
        better positions us to collaborate with our in-country distributors,
        identify new distributors and enhance our understanding of the Chinese
        market.
    --  We extended the maturity of our credit agreements with DMRJ Group LLC
        through March 31, 2014, and negotiated the conversion of $24 million of
        the line of credit to convertible term notes, increasing availability
        under the $23 million line of credit."

Mr. Bolduc concluded, “Our continued progress with the TSA, in achieving acceptance onto the air cargo screening technology list and independent validation testing for passenger checkpoint screening, along with achieving STAC certification, are very significant achievements which we believe establish our credibility as the next generation explosives technology in the competitive global trace explosives industry. The influx of industry talent that we have recruited over the past twelve months increases our ability to innovate new technologies, build new products, and grow our market share and revenues. We remain excited about our future prospects.”

Details for the quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2013 follow below.

Quarter Ended June 30, 2013 vs. June 30, 2012

    --  Revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 were $2,402,000 as compared
        with $552,000 for the comparable prior year period, an increase of
        $1,850,000, or 335.1%.  The increase in revenue is due primarily to
        increased shipments into, Africa, the Middle East, Mexico and China,
        resulting in a 130% increase in the number of QS-H150 handheld units
        sold, increased domestic and international sales of our QS-B220 desktop
        units, and increased sales of parts and supplies during the quarter
        ended June 30, 2013, as compared to the comparable prior year period,
        partially offset by a 2.2% decrease in average unit sell prices on sales
        of our QS-H150 handheld units.
    --  Gross margin for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 was $697,000 or 29.0%
        of revenues as compared with gross margin of $53,000 or 9.6% of revenues
        for the comparable prior year period.  The increase in gross margin is
        primarily the result of increased unit sales of our QS-H150 and QS-B220,
        increased manufacturing overhead absorption, partially offset by
        increased manufacturing overhead spending due to stock-based
        compensation recorded on the September 2012 officer and director option
        grants, increased manufacturing personnel costs and increased warranty
        costs due to the increase in units sold, as compared to the comparable
        prior year period.
    --  Research and development expense for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 was
        $1,233,000 as compared with $815,000 for the comparable prior year
        period, an increase of $418,000 or 51.3%.  The increase in research and
        development expense is due primarily to increased payroll and related
        benefit costs, stock-based compensation recorded on the September 2012
        officer and director option grants, partially offset by decreased
        contracted engineering.
    --  Selling, general and administrative expenses for the quarter ended June
        30, 2013 were $3,515,000 as compared with $2,522,000 for the comparable
        prior year period, an increase of $993,000, or 39.4%.  The increase in
        selling, general and administrative expenses is due primarily a
        $1,325,000 increase in stock-based compensation recorded on the
        September 2012 officer and director option grants and warrants to
        purchase shares of our common stock, increased travel expense resulting
        from the addition of sales personnel, partially offset by decreased
        consulting fees due to the issuance of common stock to certain
        consultants in the comparable prior year period and decreased legal
        costs.
    --  For the quarter ended June 30, 2013, other expense, net was $1,493,000
        as compared with other expense, net of $1,100,000, for the comparable
        prior year period, an increase of $393,000. The increase was primarily
        due to increased interest expense on higher borrowings under our credit
        facility with DMRJ.
    --  Our net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 was $5,544,000 as
        compared with a net loss of $4,384,000 for the comparable prior year
        period, an increase of $1,160,000, or 26.5%.  The increase in the net
        loss is primarily due to stock-based compensation recorded on the
        September 2012 officer and director option grants, increased operating
        expenses and increased interest expense.

Year Ended June 30, 2013 vs. June 30, 2012

    --  Revenues for the year ended June 30, 2013 were $12,017,000 as compared
        with $3,406,000 for the prior year, an increase of $8,611,000 or 252.8%.
        The increase in revenue is due primarily to a 225% increase in the
        number of QS-H150 handheld units sold, due primarily to the shipment of
        the India Ministry of Defence order, $848,000 in sales to agencies of
        the U.S. Government, increased sales into Africa, the Middle East and
        Japan, increased domestic and international sales of our QS-B220 desktop
        units, which we began shipping commercially in the third quarter of
        fiscal 2012 and, increased sales of parts and supplies during the year
        ended June 30, 2013, as compared to the comparable prior year period,
        partially offset by an 4.9% decrease in average unit sell prices on
        sales of our QS-H150 handheld units.
    --  Gross margin for the year ended June 30, 2013 was $3,429,000 or 28.5% of
        revenues as compared with gross margin of $999,000 or 29.3% of revenues
        for the prior year period.  The decrease in gross margin is primarily
        the result of increased manufacturing overhead spending due to
        stock-based compensation recorded on the September 2012 officer and
        director option grants, costs incurred to support the India Ministry of
        Defence order, increased warranty costs, increased manufacturing
        personnel costs, and by the decrease in the average unit sell prices on
        sales of our QS-H150 handheld units in the year ended June 30, 2013, as
        compared to the prior year period.
    --  Research and development expense for the year ended June 30, 2013 was
        $4,754,000 as compared with $3,180,000 for the prior year period, an
        increase of $1,574,000 or 49.5%.  The increase in research and
        development expense is due primarily to a $923,000 increase in
        stock-based compensation recorded on the September 2012 officer and
        director option grants and increased payroll and related benefit costs,
        partially offset by a decrease in contracted engineering.
    --  Selling, general and administrative expenses for the year ended June 30,
        2013 were $20,630,000 as compared with $8,575,000 for the prior year
        period, an increase of $12,055,000, or 140.6%.  The increase in selling,
        general and administrative expenses is due primarily to a $12,172,000
        increase in stock-based compensation recorded on the September 2012
        officer and director option grants and warrants to purchase shares of
        our common stock, an increase in payroll, related benefit costs and
        travel expense resulting from the addition of sales personnel and
        increased sales commissions, the imposition of liquidated damages of
        $298,000 under our contact with the India Ministry of Defence, due to
        delayed shipment, increased selling expenses due to the opening of our
        Shanghai representative office, increased participation at industry
        trade shows and an increase in demonstration units provided to our sales
        force,  increased in bank fees related to the extension of letters of
        credit issued under our agreement with the India Ministry of Defence,
        and increased in legal fees and costs incurred to increase our
        authorized shares, partially offset by decreased consulting fees due to
        the issuance of our common stock to certain consultants in the prior
        year period and the $295,000 benefit recognized as a result of the
        litigation settlement with Fulong.
    --  For the year ended June 30, 2013, other expense, net was $5,399,000 as
        compared with other expense, net of $3,880,000, for the prior year
        period, an increase of $1,519,000. The increase was primarily due to
        increased interest expense on higher borrowings under our credit
        facility with DMRJ.
    --  Our net loss for the year ended June 30, 2013 was $27,354,000 as
        compared with $14,636,000 for the prior year, an increase of
        $12,718,000, or 86.9%.  The increase in the net loss is primarily due to
        stock-based compensation recorded on the September 2012 officer and
        director option grants, increased operating expenses and increased
        interest expense due to higher borrowings under our credit facility with
        DMRJ.

    (1) Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net loss plus interest expense, net of interest income, income taxes, depreciation, stock-based compensation, fair value of warrants issued to non-employees and the
     fair value of common stock issued to consultants.  EBITDA is commonly used in the technology industry, and we present Adjusted EBITDA to enhance your understanding of our financial performance.  We
     use Adjusted EBITDA as an internal performance measurement and believe that it provides investors and analysts with a measure of operating results unaffected by differences in capital structures and
     capital investment among otherwise comparable companies and improves comparability of results of operations. Management uses this supplemental measure to evaluate performance over a period of time
     and to analyze underlying trends in the Company's business and to establish operational goals and forecast that are used in allocating resources.  We expect to compute our non-GAAP financial
     measure, using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter and year to year.

    While we believe that Adjusted EBITDA is a useful measure for investors, it is not a measurement presented in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP.  You
     should not consider Adjusted EBITDA in isolation or as a substitute for net income, cash flows from operations, or any other performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.  In addition,
     Adjusted EBITDA has inherent material limitations as a performance measure.  It does not include interest expense, but because we have borrowed money, interest expense is a necessary element of our
     costs.  In addition, Adjusted EBITDA does not include depreciation.  Since we have capital assets, depreciation expense is a necessary element of our costs.  Adjusted EBITDA does not include stock-
     based compensation, which is a necessary element of our costs since we issue stock awards to employees as an important incentive to maximize overall company performance and as a benefit of employment
     with the company.  Adjusted EBITDA does not include the fair value of warrants issued to non-employees, which is a necessary element of our costs since we have issued warrants to non-employees and
     as part of our financing strategy. Finally, Adjusted EBITDA does not include the fair value of common stock issued to consultants, which is a necessary element of our costs since we have issued
     shares of our common stock in lieu of cash payments to consultants we have retained. Because not all companies use identical calculations, our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to
     other similarly titled measures of other companies.
