BEVERLY, Mass. and TORONTO, May 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hamilton Thorne Ltd. (TSX-V:HTL), a leading provider of precision instruments, consumables, software and services to the Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) and developmental biology research markets, today reported operational and financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2017. Sales increased 62% to $3.28 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 led by the contribution from its recently acquired Embryotech business, as well as strong growth in sales of clinical laser systems and increased revenues from after sale services. Net income and EBITDA for the quarter improved significantly to $405,237 and $635,275 versus $23,147 and $116,423, respectively in the prior year quarter. Cash flow from operations was $1.29 million, and total cash at quarter end was $2.22 million. David Wolf, President and Chief Executive Officer stated, “We achieved solid growth in our instrument business as a result of the significant investments in sales and support resources and market development funding made over the past 6-12 months. Sales into our core in vitro fertilization (IVF) clinic market enhanced our growth, driven by the contribution of a full quarter of Embryotech sales plus a substantial increase in sales of our clinical laser systems. Margins were up at 68.0% versus 63.7% for the prior year quarter due to product mix and the impact of higher Embryotech margins.” Mr. Wolf added, “We continue to make progress on our active acquisition program. Following the quarter end, we completed the acquisition of Gynemed GmbH & Co. KG, a leading manufacturer and distributor of consumables and equipment for the IVF clinic and laboratory markets in the well-established European ART market. This transaction adds a portfolio of premium products that are highly complementary to our existing product and service offerings and provides us with a profitable base of operations in Germany. We expect this transaction to be materially accretive to revenue and EBITDA and look forward to the opportunity to expand Gynemed product offerings into additional international markets and to increase European sales of existing Hamilton Thorne products.” All amounts are in US dollars, unless specified otherwise, and results, with the exception of EBITDA, are expressed in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS").

"We are pleased to expand our relationship with BCSI, the leader in pH measurement," said David Wolf, President and CEO of Hamilton Thorne. "This agreement allows us to provide monitoring solutions to existing and new customers in to the IVF community." TrakStation and TrakPod are the latest generation of continuous pH monitoring laboratory instruments from BCSI. With the capability of monitoring and logging pH data from one (1) to eight (8) chambers simultaneously, the system provides the lab manager or clinician with assurance of a stable incubator pH environment throughout the five (5) to seven (7) day IVF cycle. In contrast to systems that spot monitor pH, this unique surrogate continuous pH monitoring approach does not require opening and closing of incubator doors, thus allowing an uninterrupted incubation cycle and promoting better outcomes for IVF procedures. The system requires no expensive calibration or adjustments during its use. One disposable sensor lasts the entire 7-day cycle and is replaced between cycles. A reusable QC alignment tool adjusts the instrument to factory specifications in under ten (10) seconds after each cycle is complete; the QC alignment tool is replaced annually. "Hamilton Thorne is one of the most trusted suppliers of in vitro fertilization (IVF) products. They provide superior support, marketing and sales to clinics," said Russ Aldrich, CEO of BCSI. "pH is the most trusted indicator of incubation stability during the IVF process. Having the ability to measure, record and archive pH during a cycle provides the lab staff with extra assurance."
