BIOLASE, Inc. (NASDAQ: BIOL), the World's leading dental laser manufacturer and distributor, today reported unaudited operating results for its second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012.

Net revenue for this year's second quarter totaled $12.2 million which is net of a reduction of $1.1 million due to the accounting consequences related to the re-purchase of Henry Schein, Inc.'s (NASDAQ: HSIC) inventory of Waterlase MD™ Turbo laser systems, which was completed on April 12, 2012. This compares to $12.1 million in the prior year period. Net revenue for the first six months of 2012 was $24.5 million compared to $22.6 million in the prior year period.

Excluding the $1.1 million reduction in revenue for the inventory re-purchase from Schein during the 2012 second quarter and $2.1 million in product sales to Schein to satisfy one-time prepaid purchase orders during the second quarter ended June 30, 2011, non-GAAP net revenue in this year's second quarter was $13.3 million, compared to non-GAAP net revenue of $10.0 million for the 2011 second quarter, an increase of $3.3 million, or 33 percent. Non-GAAP net revenue for the first six months of 2012 excluding the inventory re-purchase was $25.6 million. This compares to non-GAAP net revenue of $17.7 million during the first six months of 2011, which excludes $5.0 million in equipment sales to Schein to satisfy its irrevocable purchase orders, and represents a year-over-year increase of $7.9 million, or 45 percent.

Federico Pignatelli, Chairman and CEO, said, "The second quarter was again a time of tremendous activity within BIOLASE and in our global market. We made several important operational moves that were all designed to strategically improve our ability to become one of the dental industry's top providers of technology solutions and more generally to move towards becoming a laser-centered, multi-product and multi-platform company, with high-end digital imaging that complements our patented Waterlase micro-surgery. We continue to focus on execution and growth while making key long term investments in the new structure of BIOLASE, assuring a solid and innovative future of success of the Company."

Approximately 58 percent of BIOLASE's net revenues for the 2012 second quarter and 61 percent of net revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2012, were from the sale of its all-tissue Waterlase® systems, the majority of which were from sales of the flagship Waterlase iPlus™. On a GAAP-basis, sales of Waterlase systems for the 2012 second quarter decreased 7 percent compared to the year-earlier period, however, this measure is net of the accounting effects from the inventory re-purchase from Schein during the 2012 second quarter. Excluding the inventory re-purchase, sales of Waterlase systems during the 2012 second quarter totaled $8.2 million. This is an increase of 48 percent compared to $5.6 million in the second quarter ended June 30, 2011, when excluding sales of $2.1 million to Schein to satisfy one-time prepaid purchase orders during the 2011 second quarter. Excluding the inventory re-purchase, sales of Waterlase systems totaled $16.2 million for the first six months of 2012, an increase of $6.3 million, or 63 percent, over the same period in 2011, excluding the $2.1 million in sales of Waterlase iPlus systems to Schein to satisfy one-time prepaid purchase orders during the first six months of 2011.

The current results were achieved despite a drop in BIOLASE's diode laser system sales to approximately 11 percent of net revenues for both the second quarter and first six months of 2012 compared to 14 percent and 24 percent for the prior year comparable periods. Diode systems revenue has been impacted during 2012, as BIOLASE is waiting for regulatory clearance to sell its newly introduced EPIC 10™ diode laser system.

On a GAAP basis, the net loss for the second quarter of 2012 totaled $1.9 million, or a loss of $0.06 per share, compared to a net loss of $753,000, or a loss of $0.03 per share, in the 2011 second quarter. After removing non-cash depreciation and amortization expenses of $122,000, stock-based, other equity instruments, and non-cash compensation expense of $400,000 and interest expense of $38,000, this year's second quarter resulted in a non-GAAP net loss of $1.3 million, or a loss of $0.04 per share, compared with non-GAAP net income of $69,000, or $0.00 per share, for the second quarter of 2011.

The net loss for the first six months of 2012 was $3.5 million, or a loss of $0.11 per share, compared to a net loss of $1.5 million, or a loss of $0.05 per share, for the year-earlier period. Excluding non-cash depreciation and amortization expenses of $247,000, stock-based, other equity instruments, and non-cash compensation expense of $1.1 million and interest expense of $42,000, the non-GAAP net loss for the first six months of 2012 was $2.2 million, or a loss of $0.07 per share. This compares to non-GAAP net income of $222,000, or $0.01 per share, for the first six months of 2011.

Pignatelli added, "Our net losses in 2012 have been primarily driven by increased costs of revenues; significant investments in sales and marketing, which include increased convention costs, expansion into specialty market segments, increased media and advertising expenses, and additional WCLI events; substantial increases in legal fees related to freeing the Company from its prior relationship with Schein; and continued engineering and development costs related to our efforts in developing our core technologies, as well as efforts developing our patented laser toothbrush and clinical research investments in the promising field of Ophthalmology."

The percentage of net revenue in the 2012 second quarter from the U.S. and international markets totaled approximately 66 percent and 34 percent, respectively, as compared to approximately 71 percent and 29 percent of net revenue in the prior year comparable period.

Recent Highlights
A series of recent actions, developments and key accomplishments include the following:

  • BIOLASE purchased the remaining inventory of Waterlase MD™ Turbo laser systems from Schein. Pursuant to the agreement, the Company purchased Schein's inventory of Waterlase MD Turbo laser systems and Schein released its liens on BIOLASE's assets. BIOLASE paid the entire purchase price by offsetting accounts receivable currently due from Schein from sales made in the normal course of business. None of the funds used to offset the purchase price were related to the original sales of the Waterlase MD Turbo laser systems that were purchased.
  • BIOLASE entered a definitive five-year agreement with Copenhagen-based 3Shape Corporation, making BIOLASE a distributor of 3Shape's TRIOS® intra-oral scanning technologies for impression-taking solutions in the U.S. and Canada.
  • The award of a new patent related to endodontic probes and biofluids for treating and removing deposits from tissue surfaces that expands BIOLASE's intellectual property position in laser endodontics with radial firing tips. This laser endodontic therapy system has the ability to significantly reduce root canal bacteria levels compared to conventional manual endofiles.
  • The establishment of a long-term collaboration with world renowned laser dentistry expert Professor Norbert Gutknecht and the Aachen Center for Laser Dentistry ("AALZ") in Germany to promote laser dentistry worldwide through clinical laser education, training and research. Management believes that with approximately 13,000 members, the combination of BIOLASE's World Clinical Laser Institute ("WCLI"), and the AALZ will form the largest group of users and experts in laser dentistry in the world.
  • The completion of the initial build-out of the inside sales organization at BIOLASE's corporate headquarters in Irvine, CA. The group is currently made up of 6 inside sales representatives and lead generators, who work in partnership with the outside sales team to maximize sales, leverage the existing installed customer base and drive smaller deals to closure. BIOLASE plans to grow the group to between 8 and 10 by the end of the year. Management believes that this group will provide greater support to its outside sales representatives, generate its own sales, and contribute to BIOLASE's overall growth.
  • The opening of the technology and training center at BIOLASE's corporate headquarters in Irvine, CA. The state-of-the-art facility will provide introductory and specialized training sessions for dental professionals seeking proficiency and certification training utilizing best-in-class BIOLASE products. The facility will also be used for ongoing training and clinical education for both the outside and inside sales teams and service professionals.
  • BIOLASE's revolutionary Waterlase iPlus won the Medical Devices category for the TechAmerica Orange County High-Tech Innovation Awards and was also the Bronze Winner in the dental instruments, equipment and supplies category of the 2012 Medical Design Excellence Awards® ("MDEA") competition, the premier awards program for the MedTech industry.
  • BIOLASE secured two new revolving credit facilities with Comerica Bank for a combined aggregate commitment of borrowings up to $8.0 million. The available borrowings of these two-year credit facilities are based on the Company's eligible accounts receivable and inventory. Borrowings will be used for working capital purposes.
  • BIOLASE's ticker symbol was changed from "BLTI" to "BIOL" to align the ticker symbol with its recent name change to BIOLASE, Inc.
  • The introduction of the EPIC 10™, the next evolution of BIOLASE's Total Diode Solution. The EPIC 10 is not yet available for sale, as it is pending 510k clearance from the Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") in the U.S. and international regulatory approval as well.
  • The declaration of a one-half percent stock dividend payable on June 25, 2012 to stockholders of record on June 8, 2012.

Gross profit as a percentage of net revenue for this year's second quarter and first six months was 45.2 percent and 46.2 percent, respectively, compared to 46.5 percent and 46.2 percent for the prior year comparable periods. The year-over-year decrease for the second quarter was primarily due to increased sales of products and services with higher costs and lower margins, such as imaging equipment, and decreased sales of products and services with lower costs, such as license fees and royalty revenue, offset by the impact of the inventory re-purchase from Schein.

Operating expenses in this year's second quarter and first six months were $7.2 million and $14.6 million, respectively, compared to $6.3 million and $11.6 million in the prior year periods. Operating expenses were up year over year as BIOLASE invested heavily in sales and marketing and strengthened its spending in engineering and new technology development for dental and other important markets. Although these represent significant costs, management believes these investments will have both short- and long-term benefits to the future earnings potential of the Company.

As of June 30, 2012, cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash totaled approximately $1.7 million, accounts receivable totaled $9.6 million, and stockholders' equity was $10.6 million.

2012 Guidance
BIOLASE expects GAAP revenue for the third quarter of 2012 of approximately $13.5 million to $15.0 million. On a non-GAAP adjusted basis, 2012 third quarter revenue is expected to increase approximately $1.3 million to $2.8 million, or 11 to 23 percent, compared to the same period last year after excluding product revenues totaling approximately $900,000 associated with the irrevocable one-time purchase orders from Schein for the 2011 third quarter. Full-year gross revenue guidance for 2012 remains $57 million to $60 million, excluding the $1.1 million reduction in net revenue for the inventory re-purchase from Schein during the 2012 second quarter. Excluding equipment sales to Schein to satisfy one-time prepaid purchase orders of approximately $5.9 million during 2011, the midpoint of the Company's guidance of $58.5 million represents an increase of 36 percent, year over year. In addition, BIOLASE's goal remains to be cash flow positive in the fourth quarter of 2012.
