"Our relevance and acceptance has increased in these markets, our sales pipeline is robust, and our averageselling pricecontinues to grow. This strong foundation should enable Vision-Sciences' growth in fiscal 2014 and beyond." Results of Operations Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2013 versus Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2012 Net sales in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 decreased 9% to $4.2 million from $4.6 million in the same period a year ago, primarily due to the absence of spine system sales to SpineView, Inc. in the fiscal 2013 quarter. Sequentially, net sales in the fourth quarter increased 6% from $4.0 million as reported during the third quarter of fiscal 2013. Net sales detail (in thousands, except for percentages) for the three-month periods were as follows: Three Months Ended March 31, Market/Category 2013 2012 % (unaudited) (unaudited) Urology $2,074 $1,916 8% ENT 479 493 -3% Surgery / GI 124 186 -33% Critical Care / Pulmonology 264 331 -20% Spine -- 225 -100% Repairs, peripherals, and accessories 499 527 -5% Total net medical sales 3,440 3,678 -6% Total net industrial sales 760 913 -17% Net sales $4,200 $4,591 -9% Gross profit was $1.2 million in the fourth quarters of fiscal 2013 and 2012. Gross margin for the period increased 300 basis points to 29% from 26% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. The gross margin improvement was primarily attributable to higher domestic average selling prices as evidenced by the year-over-year increases of 53% and 87% realized for the Company's surgical and critical care video platforms, respectively. Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses were $2.8 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013, a decrease of $0.2 million, or 8%, over the same period last year. The decrease was primarily due to lower salaries and benefits expense ($119 thousand) and a reduction in trade show and convention costs ($46 thousand). As a percentage of net sales, SG&A was 67% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013, up slightly from the 65% reported in the same period last year. Research and development ("R&D") expenses were $0.5 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013, a decrease of $0.5 million, or 54%, over the same period last year. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower product development costs associated with the Company's next generation digital processing unit, the DPU-7000 ($0.2 million), the flexible ureteroscope for Stryker ($0.1 million), and the 2.0 mm flexible endoscope for SpineView ($0.1 million). All of these products are now commercially available for sale. As a percentage of net sales, R&D decreased to 11% from 22% reported during the same period last year. The Company's operating loss improved 29% to $2.0 million during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 driven by lower operating expenses of $0.8 million. Full Year Fiscal 2013 versus Full Year Fiscal 2012 Net sales for the full year fiscal 2013 decreased 8% to $15.3 million from $16.7 million reported during the full year fiscal 2012. The year-over-year net sales decline was primarily attributable to lower urology sales to Stryker ($1.2 million) stemming from initial stocking of product in fiscal 2012 to support their April 2011 launch efforts. Net sales detail (in thousands, except for percentages) for fiscal years 2013 and 2012 were as follows: Fiscal Year Ended March 31, Market/Category 2013 2012 % (unaudited) (audited) Urology $5,439 $7,167 -24% ENT 1,896 1,922 -1% Surgery / GI 1,019 952 7% Critical Care / Pulmonology 789 895 -12% Spine 440 837 -47% Repairs, peripherals, and accessories 2,047 1,962 4% Total net medical sales 11,630 13,735 -15% Total net industrial sales 3,657 2,951 24% Net sales $15,287 $16,686 -8% Gross profit for fiscal 2013 decreased 15% to $4.3 million compared to $5.1 million for fiscal 2012. Gross margin for the period decreased approximately 200 basis points to 28% from 30% in fiscal 2012, primarily attributable to a reduction in the allocation of manufacturing expenses to support research and development activities (gross margin percentage point impact of 3% in fiscal 2013). SG&A expenses were $11.0 million for fiscal 2013, a decrease of $1.1 million, or 9%, compared to fiscal 2012. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower stock-based compensation expense ($0.5 million), lower vacation pay expense ($0.3 million), and a reduction in trade show and convention costs ($0.2 million). As a percentage of net sales, SG&A was essentially unchanged at 72% for fiscal 2013 as compared to the prior year. R&D expenses were $1.8 million for fiscal 2013, a decrease of $1.3 million, or 42%, compared to fiscal 2012. The decrease was primarily attributable to lower product development costs associated with the aforementioned products ($0.7 million) and a reduction in manufacturing efforts to support product development activities ($0.5 million). As a percentage of net sales, R&D decreased to 12% from 19% as reported in fiscal 2012. The Company's operating loss improved 17% to $8.4 million in fiscal 2013 from $10.1 million in fiscal 2012, primarily attributable to a $2.4 million decline in operating expenses, period to period. At March 31, 2013, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $0.8 million and working capital of $7.0 million, as compared to cash and cash equivalents of $1.3 million and working capital of $6.6 million at December 31, 2012 and cash and cash equivalents of $2.7 million and working capital of $6.0 million at March 31, 2012. The Company presently has $3.0 million of capital available under a $20.0 million convertible note with Lewis C. Pell, the Company's Chairman.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures Non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share excludes non-cash or non-operational activities. As a result, the Company uses these measures to assess and analyze its operational results and trends and to make financial and operations decisions. The Company also believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors, because they provide greater transparency regarding the Company's operating performance. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered measures of the Company's liquidity. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are unlikely to be comparable with non-GAAP information provided by other companies. Reconciliations between non-GAAP financial measures and GAAP financial measures for net loss and net loss per share are included in a table accompanying this press release after the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.
