NOVADAQ Reports Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results

Toronto, Ontario – July 27, 2016 –

NOVADAQ Technologies Inc. (“NOVADAQ” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:NVDQ; TSX:NDQ), the leading developer and provider of clinically relevant fluorescence imaging solutions for use in surgical and diagnostic procedures, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2016. Unless otherwise indicated, all dollar amounts in this press release are expressed in United States (“U.S.”) dollars.

For the three months ended June 30, 2016, NOVADAQ reported revenues of $20.1 million, an increase of 34% from $15.1 million in the second quarter of 2015.  Total direct sales increased by $4.4 million, or 37%, and total Partnered/International sales increased by $0.6 million, or 21%, compared to Q2-2015.

The following table sets out certain supplemental quarterly revenue and installed base metrics to assist investors in following the Company’s progress over time:

Q2-2016 Q2-2015 Change
REVENUES (million’s)
Recurring $7.8 $5.7 +38%
Capital 8.8 6.5 +36%
Total Direct 16.6 12.2 +37%
Partnered/International 3.5 2.9 +21%
Total $20.1 $15.1 +34%
Direct Systems 815 611 +33%
Recurring Revenue/Direct
System $9,539 $9,251 +3%

The Company estimates that the number of procedures performed using SPY technology systems during the second quarter was approximately 13,300 representing an increase of 39% year-over-year and 8% sequentially over the previous quarter.

Second quarter gross profits rose to $14.5 million (72% margin) compared to gross profits of $10.7 million (71%) in the same period last year.

Net loss for the second quarter of 2016 was $16.5 million, or $0.29 basic loss per share, compared with net loss of $6.0 million, or $0.11 basic loss per share, in Q2-2015.  The increase in net loss was primarily a result of an increase in operating expenses of $8.0 million, which included approximately $4.0 million of expenses associated with the departure of the Company’s former CEO, and the non-cash warrant revaluation income of $6.3 recognized in Q2-2015. Offsetting these amounts was an increase in gross profit of $3.8 million.

Second quarter 2016 operating burn (cash consumed by operating activities before changes in working capital) was $10.1 million compared to $8.7 million in the second quarter of 2015. The cash burn in Q2-2016 included $1.9 of cash separation costs.  Without such costs, the cash burn in Q2-2016 would have been $8.2 million, or slightly lower than it was in Q2-2015. During Q2-2016, non-cash working capital decreased by $0.6 million.

Cash and cash equivalents were $84.0 million at June 30, 2016, reflecting a decrease of $12.6 million compared to the cash position as at March 31, 2016.

“The positive sales momentum we established early this year successfully carried into Q2, which was marked by the continued strong growth of both our capital sales and recurring revenue,” commented Rick Mangat, NOVADAQ’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “I am pleased that we maintained our steady and robust growth trajectory, and am very optimistic about our performance in the second half of 2016.”
