Abiomed Announces Q2 FY 2018 Revenue of $132.8 Million, Up 29% and Record U.S. Patient Utilization, Up 33%

DANVERS, Mass., Oct. 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Abiomed, Inc.  (NASDAQ:ABMD), a leading provider of breakthrough heart support technologies, today reported second quarter fiscal 2018 revenue of $132.8 million, an increase of 29% compared to revenue of $103.0 million for the same period of fiscal 2017. Second quarter fiscal 2018 GAAP net income was $24.5 million or $0.54 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net income of $8.9 million or $0.20 per diluted share for the prior year period.

Financial and operating highlights during the second quarter of fiscal 2018 include:

  • Worldwide revenue from Impella heart pumps totaled $127.4 million, an increase of 30% compared to revenue of $97.9 million during the same period of the prior year. U.S. revenue from Impella pumps grew 27% to $113.6 million and U.S. patient usage grew 33%. 

  • Outside the U.S., revenue from Impella heart pumps totaled $13.8 million and was up 61%, predominantly from Germany, which grew 64% in revenue from the prior year with record number of patients.

  • The installed base for Impella 2.5®  heart pumps in the U.S. grew by an additional 17 hospitals, which made initial purchases of Impella heart pumps, bringing the installed customer base to 1,171 sites. The installed customer base for Impella CP®  heart pumps grew by 31 new U.S. hospitals, bringing the total number of Impella CP sites to 1,093. The installed customer base for Impella 5.0®  heart pumps grew by 12 new U.S. hospitals, bringing the total number of Impella 5.0 sites to 484.

  • An additional 44 sites made initial purchases of Impella RP®  heart pumps during the quarter, bringing the total number of sites to 186.

  • Gross margin of 84% compared to 83% of the prior year.

  • Operating income was $31.7 million, or 24% operating margin, compared to $14.5 million, or 14% operating margin in the prior year. 

  • GAAP net income was $24.5 million or $0.54 per diluted share, which benefited from a new accounting standard that required $4.5 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, of excess tax benefits related to employee share-based compensation awards be recorded as a reduction of income tax expense. This compared to GAAP net income of $8.9 million or $0.20 per diluted share for the prior year, before the new accounting standard.

  • The Company generated $30.1 million in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities, totaling $319.2 million as of September 30, 2017, compared to $289.1 million at June 30, 2017. The Company currently has no debt.

  • On September 20, 2017, Abiomed received FDA PMA approval for the Impella RP heart pump. With this approval, the Impella RP heart pump is the only percutaneous temporary ventricular support device that is FDA-approved as safe and effective for right heart failure.

  • Today, Abiomed announced in a separate press release the first patient treated with Impella®  heart pump in Japan. The Impella 2.5 and Impella 5.0 heart pumps are approved for the treatment of drug-resistant acute heart failure and are the first and only percutaneous temporary ventricular support devices approved by the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA) in Japan.

"This quarter, we set new records for supporting patients in the U.S. and Germany and we continue to observe improved clinical outcomes with our education and training initiatives," said Michael R. Minogue, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Abiomed. "I am proud of the team's ability to consistently adapt and execute as we transform the standard of care and build the Field of Heart Recovery."
