Q1/11 Results, ThermoGenesis (KOOL)

KOOL reported Q1/11 net loss of $68K or ($0.00) per share. 

Q1/11 revenues were $7M with a cost of revenues of $4.4M.  Gross profit was $2.6M. KOOL recorded disposable revenues of $4.4M. R&D expenses were $725K with SG&A clocking in at $1.94M. Total operating expenses were $2.65M. Included in the results were approximately $160K in severance and restructuring costs and an early termination fee related to a facility lease. The per share results for all periods have been adjusted to reflect the impact of the reverse stock split that occurred at the close of business on 8/26/10.  Shares used in computing per share data were 14.23M. Absent the severance, restructuring and lease termination charges, KOOL would have achieved a profitable quarter.  It should be noted that AXP disposable sales were higher than the prior year and same quarter by $1.2M, due primarily to GE Healthcare (GEHC) increasing their inventory levels approximately $1M to meet certain customer requirements;
