(NYSE MKT: INFU) (“InfuSystem” or the “Company”), a leading national provider of infusion pumps and related services for the healthcare industry in the United States, today reported its second consecutive quarter of profitability in the fourth quarter ending December 31, 2012.

For the full year ended December 31, 2012, the Company’s net loss was $1.5 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, versus a net loss of $45.4 million, or $2.16 per diluted share, in 2011.

Gross profit for the three months ending December 31, 2012, was $12.0 million, up 48% from $8.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Gross profit for the full year 2012 was $42.9 million, an increase of 21% compared to $35.4 million in 2011.
Revenues in the fourth quarter were $16.2 million, up 16% from $14.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Total revenues for the year ended December 31, 2012, were $58.8 million, an 8% improvement from $54.6 million in 2011. The increase in revenues is primarily related to the addition of larger customers, increased penetration into existing customer accounts, and the resolution of the oncology drug shortage from 2011. Also, during the fourth quarter of 2012, a major group of third party payors revised their claim processing guidelines that affected all durable medical equipment providers, which pushed some claims to be billed at higher out-of-network rates directly to patients.
SG&A increased to $10.4 million from $8.8 million, in addition to other expenses of $1.2 million compared with $0.5 million of other income a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA for the latest quarter was $3.8 million, up from the $1.5 million for the prior-year period, as adjusted on a comparable basis.
