Fiscal 2010 revenue up 15.3 percent from prior year

MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 24, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Urologix®, Inc. (Nasdaq:ULGX), a medical device company that develops, manufactures and markets minimally invasive Cooled ThermoTherapy™ technology to urologists to provide a durable and effective in-office treatment for patients suffering from benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), today reported financial results for its fourth quarter ended June 30, 2010 and for fiscal year 2010. For the Company's fiscal year 2010 fourth quarter, Urologix posted a net loss of $622,000, or $0.04 per diluted share, on revenue of $3.3 million. Compared to the prior-year fourth quarter, which had a net loss of $875,000 or $0.06 per diluted share, current-year loss was reduced by $253,000. The decrease in net loss as compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009 is primarily due to a decrease in operating expense of $268,000. Fiscal 2010 fourth-quarter revenue was down 9.3 percent from the $3.6 million reported in the third quarter of this fiscal year and decreased 5.4 percent compared to the same period in the prior year. The 2010 fourth quarter revenue decline compared to third quarter was impacted by two factors: (1) a temporary backorder for the Company's Prostaprobe® product that is utilized by third-party mobile services; and (2) physician uncertainty surrounding Medicare reimbursement due to the disruption of payments during a portion of April and June. The backorder issue has been resolved and Medicare reimbursement payments resumed in late June 2010. The Company's cash utilization was $62,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2010. This compares to a cash utilization of $603,000 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009, a reduction of $541,000. The Company's cash balance was $5.7 million as of June 30, 2010, which management considers sufficient to fund working capital and capital resource needs beyond fiscal year 2011.
