    MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich., May 12, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InfuSystem Holdings, Inc. (NYSE Amex:INFU), the leading provider of infusion pumps and related services, today reported results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011.

    Revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 were $13.0 million compared with $10.9 million for the prior year, up 19 percent. Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 was $3.3 million, versus $3.2 million a year ago.

    Mr. Sean McDevitt, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman, commented, "I am extremely pleased with the first quarter 2011 results. It is clear that the strategic decisions we have made are producing tangible benefits. The increased focus on operational improvements and execution are generating positive results today and position us well for the future. Looking forward, we continue to evaluate additional growth opportunities that would leverage our penetration in the oncology and the infusion markets, our expertise in billing, as well as our strong reputation for customer service."

    Revenues for the first quarter ending March 31, 2011 were $13.0 million, up 19 percent from $10.9 million in the prior year period. The increase in revenues is related to obtaining business at new customer facilities and expansion into new product lines associated with our acquisitions.

    Gross profit for the three months ending March 31, 2011 was $9.1 million, up 11 percent from $8.1 million in the prior year period. It represented 70 percent of revenues for the latest year, compared with 74 percent in the prior year period. The decrease in the gross margin percentage was primarily related to higher pump depreciation and disposal costs with a higher mix of pump sales and services, as compared to third party billings.

    Selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 were $8.8 million, 33 percent higher than the prior period's $6.6 million. As a percent of revenues, SG&A was 68 percent compared to 61 percent for the prior period. The increases were primarily related to an increase in stock based compensation, increased investment in sales and marketing, and expenses associated with the acquired businesses.

    Adjusted EBITDA was $3.3 million for the first quarter of 2011 versus $3.2 million in the prior period. The company utilizes Adjusted EBITDA as a means to measure its operating performance. A reconciliation from Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, to net income can be found in the appendix.

    Other loss for the first quarter of 2011 was $0.5 million versus $1.2 million other loss in the prior period, reflecting reduced interest expense and no loss on derivatives. As a result, the first quarter net loss was $171 thousand, equal to $0.01 loss per diluted share, versus a $12 thousand net loss, equal to $0.00 income per diluted share in the prior period.

    Financial Condition

    Net cash provided by operations for the first quarter ending March 31, 2011 was $2.1 million, up 40 percent from $1.5 million for the prior period. The latest quarter's results reflected higher levels of stock based compensation, depreciation and amortization of intangibles. The company had capital expenditures of $2.4 million, an increase of $1.9 million compared to the prior period. The cash balance decreased by $1.8 million from the previous period and the company ended the quarter with a cash balance of $3.2 million with $25.6 million in long-term debt, net of current.
