Domestic 2013 first quarter sales were $5.3 million, compared to $5.0 million in the 2012 first quarter, while international sales were $1.7 million, versus $1.4 million in last year's first quarter.

First quarter equipment, supplies and accessories sales totaled $5.8 million, compared to $5.4 million during last year's first quarter. Service revenues for the first quarter totaled $1.2 million, compared to $1.1 million during last year's first quarter. The Attachment Rate, which reflects the percentage of Extended Service Contracts added at the point of sale to customer equipment purchases, was 17% for the first quarter of fiscal 2013. The attachment rate has steadily increased from the low single-digit level when the current management team was installed. The Company's "Real Time Diffusion" ("RTD") technology continues to do well, with 79% of new pulmonary device equipment sales during the quarter containing RTD capabilities. Gross margin for the quarter was 54.5% compared to 55.5% in the 2012 first quarter. Gross margin for equipment, supplies and accessories fell to 51.2% for the quarter, compared to 53.0% in the prior year's quarter, primarily as a result of product mix. Gross margin for services increased to 70.8% for the quarter, compared to 68.4% for the prior year's quarter primarily as a result of improved pricing.

The Company abandoned the acquisition during the later stages of due diligence. The Company also incurred a $28,000 expense related to legal fees regarding an intellectual property dispute. Research and development expenses were $647,000 compared to $810,000 in last year's first quarter, reflecting cost savings from prior year executive separations and conversion of consulting resources to full time personnel. Gregg O. Lehman, Ph D., president and chief executive officer of MGC Diagnostics, said, "We are very pleased with the revenue increase achieved in the fiscal 2013 first quarter. The nine percent increase is the highest first quarter revenue increase in nearly a decade. With the implementation of a new strategic initiative to drive improved first quarter sales, our sales force did a great job of converting sales leads into active buyers." "We had solid performance across all of our sales channels and geographies. During the quarter, revenue from our GPO distribution channel increased 109%. International sales were up 25%, as we made a number of upgrades in our international distribution group. Extended service contracts sold at the point of sale increased to 17% compared to 7% in Q1 2012. Recurring revenue, which includes supply and service revenue, totaled 39% of total first quarter revenue. Growing our base of recurring revenue, which provides our highest gross margin, will continue to be a core focus. We are off to a good start in fiscal 2013 and we look forward to the rest of the year." Dr. Lehman continued, "In January 2013, Denver-based National Jewish Health, known worldwide for treatment of patients with respiratory, cardiac, immune and related disorders, and for groundbreaking medical research, selected MGC Diagnostics as its preferred provider of cardiopulmonary diagnostic technology and equipment. We are proud that an internationally renowned institution the caliber of National Jewish has selected our technology as its preferred option. This was an important competitive win for MGC Diagnostics and marks an important point in the Company's history as we transition into a leading innovator and aggressive sales and marketing organization. I believe this sets the stage for MGC Diagnostics to attract other leading cardiorespiratory institutions to partner with us. We firmly believe there are other significant opportunities in 2013 and beyond." Discontinued Operations On August 28, 2012, the Company completed the sale of the assets of its New Leaf business to Life Time Fitness, Inc. for $1.235 million. As a result, the Company has reclassified its results for prior periods to eliminate from its statement of comprehensive loss all fiscal 2012 revenues and expenses associated with its New Leaf business and presented the income (loss) from New Leaf activities as "discontinued operations."
