Fiscal 2022 Third Quarter Highlights
AngioDynamics, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANGO), a leading and transformative medical technology company focused on restoring healthy blood flow in the body’s vascular system, expanding cancer treatment options and improving quality of life for patients, today announced financial results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2022, which ended February 28, 2022.
“We are proud of our team’s ability to drive continued growth in our business during the third quarter while operating amid macro-related supply chain disruptions, procedural volume challenges and ongoing inflation, particularly in December and January. During the quarter, we made significant progress implementing our manufacturing capacity enhancement initiatives, exiting the quarter with an approximately 20% increase in production hours. Even as we started to see benefits of our capacity enhancement initiatives, we saw our backlog increase during our third quarter, signaling continued strong customer demand. Since mid-February, we have seen steady improvement in procedure volumes and remain confident in both the long-term growth trajectory of our portfolio and the strategic transformation of the Company,” commented Jim Clemmer, President and Chief Executive Officer of AngioDynamics.
Clemmer continued, “Despite the increased COVID and macro headwinds in our third quarter, we continued to invest in our transformation to make Med Tech comprise a larger, faster-growing piece of our business. As an example, we are pleased to announce the recent FDA clearance of our AlphaVac F18 thrombectomy system for use in the venous vasculature and approval of our IDE study for the use of AlphaVac F18 to treat pulmonary embolism.”
Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results
Net sales for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 were $74.0 million, an increase of 3.9% compared to the prior-year quarter.

Med Tech includes the Auryon Peripheral Atherectomy platform, the thrombectomy platform and the NanoKnife irreversible electroporation platform.

International net sales were $11.5 million, a decrease of 8.0%, compared to $12.5 million a year ago.

Gross margin for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 was 52.2%, a decrease of 190 basis points compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2021. During the quarter, gross margin continued to be negatively impacted by macro forces including the tight labor market and increased expense for raw materials, labor and freight.
The Company recorded a net loss of $5.0 million, or a loss per share of $0.13, in the third quarter of fiscal 2022. This compares to a net loss of $3.5 million, or a loss per share of $0.09, a year ago.

Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, excluding the items shown in the reconciliation table below, was $6.7 million, compared to $5.4 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021.
