Abiomed Announces Q2 FY 2019 Record Revenue of $182 Million, up 37% Over Prior Year

DANVERS, Mass., Nov. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Abiomed, Inc. (NASDAQ: ABMD), a leading provider of breakthrough heart recovery and support technologies, today reported second quarter fiscal 2019 revenue of $181.8 million, an increase of 37% compared to revenue of $132.8 million for the same period of fiscal 2018. Second quarter fiscal 2019 GAAP net income was $50.1 million or $1.09 per diluted share, up 104% compared to GAAP net income of $24.5 million or $0.54 per diluted share for the prior year period.

Recent financial and operating highlights include:

  • Worldwide Impella® heart pump revenue for the quarter totaled $175.3 million, an increase of 38% compared to revenue of $127.4 million during the same period of the prior fiscal year. 
     
  • U.S. Impella heart pump revenue for the quarter totaled $152.2 million, an increase of 34% compared to revenue of $113.6 million during the same period in the prior fiscal year with U.S. patient usage of the Impella heart pumps up 29%.
     
  • Outside the U.S., Impella heart pump revenue for the quarter totaled $23.1 million, an increase of 67% compared to revenue of $13.8 million during the same period in the prior fiscal year.
     
  • Gross margin for the second quarter fiscal 2019 was 83.6% compared to 83.7% during the same period in the prior fiscal year.
     
  • Operating income for the second quarter fiscal 2019 was $50.3 million, or 27.7% operating margin, compared to $31.7 million, or 23.9% operating margin in the prior fiscal year.
     
  • Second quarter fiscal 2019 GAAP net income was $50.1 million, or $1.09 per diluted share, which benefited from $12.9 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, of excess tax benefits related to employee share-based compensation awards. This compared to GAAP net income of $24.5 million or $0.54 per diluted share for the prior fiscal year, which benefited from $4.5 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, of excess tax benefits.
     
  • The Company’s cash and marketable securities balance as of September 30, 2018 was $410.4 million. The Company currently has no debt.
     
  • In September 2018, a data analysis presented at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) conference from Abiomed's Impella® Quality (IQ) Database showed that the utilization of best practices, including early placement of Impella, pre-PCI, led to a 24% relative increase in mean survival for acute myocardial infarction (AMI) cardiogenic shock patients since Impella’s cardiogenic shock FDA post-market approval (PMA) in 2016. The percent of Impella hospitals achieving greater than 70% survival now total 39%, up from 25% prior to the FDA approval.
     
  • Separately at TCT, William O’Neill, MD, medical director of the Center for Structural Heart Disease at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, presented initial data from the first 104 patients treated with the National Cardiogenic Shock Initiative (NCSI) protocol. After more than 20 years of stagnant shock survival rates at roughly 50%, NCSI has now demonstrated a survival of 77%, with 99% of survivors discharged home with their native heart. The NCSI protocol includes placing Impella pre-PCI, reducing the use of inotropes, and right heart hemodynamic monitoring. NCSI is an independent, physician-led collaboration to improve outcomes in cardiogenic shock.
     
  • The Company announces the STEMI DTU FDA safety and feasibility study will be presented in the Late-Breaking Clinical Trials at 10:00 a.m. CST on November 11th at the American Heart Association (AHA) Scientific Sessions in Chicago.  More information is available at the following link: http://www.abstractsonline.com/pp8/#!/4682/presentation/59042
