Cardiovascular Systems Announces Anticipated Revenue Impact from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma


ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cardiovascular Systems, Inc. (CSI) (NASDAQ:CSII) today said that the impact of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma on procedure volumes in the greater Houston area and throughout Florida will reduce fiscal 2018 first-quarter revenues.

“Our thoughts go out to our employees in Florida and Texas and others affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma,” said Scott Ward, CSI’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “As recovery progresses, we will closely monitor conditions and the anticipated impact on our business. While these historic storms are affecting our near-term performance, they are not indicative of our long-term growth opportunity and continued market leadership position.”

The potential revenue impact on CSI quarterly results is magnified due to the company’s small product portfolio and the location and timing of the storms. The Houston and Florida markets typically generate over 15% of CSI’s revenues. In addition, fiscal first quarter revenues are more heavily weighted in September, as procedure volumes begin to accelerate from summer levels. The company anticipates that these factors will reduce first-quarter revenues below the range of $52.6 million to $53.6 million provided on August 2, 2017. A revised revenue range will be provided when more definitive information is known about the ability of employees and customers to resume normal operations.
