Encision Reports Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2021 Results

Boulder, Colorado, February 4, 2021 -- Encision Inc. (PK:ECIA), a medical device company owning patented Active Electrode Monitoring (AEM®) Technology that prevents dangerous stray electrosurgical burns in minimally invasive surgery, today announced financial results for its fiscal 2021 third quarter that ended December 31, 2020.

The Company posted quarterly net revenue of $2.16 million for a quarterly net income of $599 thousand, or $0.05 per diluted share. Net income included $599 thousand of extinguishment of debt income. These results compare to net revenue of $2.04 million for a quarterly net income of $70 thousand, or $0.01 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin on net revenue was 51% in the fiscal 2021 third quarter and 53% in the fiscal 2020 third quarter.

The Company posted nine months net revenue of $5.39 million for a nine months net income of $469 thousand, or $0.04 per diluted share. Net income included $599 thousand of extinguishment of debt income. These results compare to net revenue of $5.89 million for a nine months net loss of $82 thousand, or $(0.01) per diluted share, in the year-ago nine months. Gross margin on net revenue was 51% in the fiscal 2021 nine months and 52% in the fiscal 2020 nine months.

“As a result of COVID-19 limiting surgical procedures, product revenue for our third quarter of fiscal 2021 decreased 2% from our third quarter of last year. Total revenue, which included service revenue, increased 6% from our third quarter of last year,” said Gregory Trudel, President and CEO of Encision Inc. “With the current increases of Covid-19 cases, we remain watchful of the state of surgery and will do all we can to support our customers.”


“We entered into a Master Services Agreement with Auris Health, Inc. (“Auris Health”) in April 2020. Auris Health is a part of the Johnson & Johnson family of companies. Under the agreement, we will collaborate on the integration of AEM technology into monopolar instrumentation produced by Auris Health for advanced surgical applications. This work is ongoing and is reported separately, as service revenue, in our Statement of Operations.”


“At the end of our second quarter, we began to sell our AEM 2X enTouch® Scissors (“2X Scissors”). 2X Scissors bring new levels of performance and economy to the surgical scissor market by combining the best in class performance of our enTouch Disposable Scissors with the value and economy of a multi-use device. 2X Scissors are a game-changing product that will have a significant impact on the disposable laparoscopic scissor market. Our enTouch Disposable Scissors have long been the surgeon preferred product because of their sharpness and micro-serrations. Our new 2X Scissors provide all those benefits at half the cost per use and reduce hospital waste and the impact on the environment as well. The new thermochromic technology integrated into 2X Scissors lets the hospital know when to replace the scissors with new ones and makes tracking their use simple and easy. Superior performance, superior value, easy to use, and easy on the environment – that’s what customers want in a disposable scissor. It is the way that everything is going. We expect 2X Scissors to gain an attractive sales trajectory and to become a significant part of our portfolio of products. 2X Scissors work perfectly with hot AEM dissection and are priced to be used for cold dissection as well. 2X Scissors will open new use segments for us and create an opportunity for customers to standardize on our entire portfolio of Active Electrode Monitoring (AEM®) products. We are delighted to sell 2X Scissors and look forward to delivering other high performance and high customer value product innovations going forward.”


“In April, we entered into an unsecured promissory note under the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”) for a principal amount of $598,567. Under the terms of the CARES Act, a PPP loan recipient may apply for, and be granted, forgiveness for all or a portion of loans granted under the PPP. Such forgiveness will be determined based upon the use of loan proceeds for payroll costs, rent and utility costs, and the maintenance of employee and compensation levels. In the quarter that ended December 31, 2020, we achieved the requirements for forgiveness, and all of the $598,567 was forgiven. We recognized the forgiveness as extinguishment of debt income of $598,567. In the quarter that ends March 31, 2021, we applied for a second PPP loan.


“On August 4, we received $150,000 in loan funding from the U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”) under the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (“EIDL”) program administered by the SBA, which program was expanded pursuant to the CARES Act. The EIDL is evidenced by a promissory note, dated August 1 in the original principal amount of $150,000 with the SBA, the lender. The EIDL note term is for thirty years.”
