Quoting Management: “The fourth quarter was highlighted by encouraging signs of progress, and while the Vascular Access franchise continues to face challenges despite the strong performance of our BioFlo technology, the Peripheral Vascular, Oncology/Surgery and International franchises all experienced healthy improvements over the fiscal 2013 third quarter,” said Joseph M. DeVivo, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We saw excellent early data on our BioFlo PICCs, which now represent 20% of AngioDynamics’ worldwide PICC revenue; exceeded our AngioVac system forecast with $1 million in sales in the fourth quarter alone; and received FDA approval for our NanoKnife system Prostate IDE. Our Oncology/Surgery franchise was further bolstered by a 25% increase in worldwide thermal ablation revenue compared to the fiscal 2013 third quarter. Coupled with returned stability in our sales forces, we believe these key drivers will return AngioDynamics to growth in FY 2014.”
