Executive Summary

MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Urologix®, Inc. (OTCQB:ULGX),
the leading provider of in-office procedures for the safe, durable and
effective treatment of BPH, today reported financial results for its fiscal
year 2014 first quarter ended September 30, 2013.

First quarter fiscal year 2014 revenue totaled $3.8 million, down 4.8%
compared to the first quarter of fiscal year 2013. Results in the first
quarter of fiscal year 2014 were negatively impacted by a significant slowdown
in international sales of Prostiva. First quarter revenue declined 9.7%
sequentially driven primarily by a decline in sales of disposable products
from both product lines.

"While we did not achieve year-over-year growth in the first quarter, our
revenue results in the US showed relative improvement compared to our fourth
quarter performance," stated Greg Fluet, Chief Executive Officer. "We continue
to have confidence in the potential for our team and our technologies to
deliver value to the three primary healthcare constituents: patients,
providers and payors. Against the backdrop of a challenging healthcare
environment, we believe that our continued focus on execution and disciplined
management of our resources will allow us to achieve our fiscal year guidance
in the range of $15 million to $17 million."

As of September 30, 2013, the Company's cash balance was$1.6 millioncompared
to$2.3 millionas ofJune 30, 2013. The cash balance decreased
$739,000compared toJune 30, 2013. The first quarter of the fiscal year
historically has larger cash payments related to annual expenses, primarily
insurance premiums, which totaled $259,000 in the first quarter of fiscal year
2014. The Company has an existing line of credit currently in place
withSilicon Valley Bank for $2 million (subject to a defined borrowing base).
The Company's cash needs will be determined by a number of items including
operating performance, accessibility of the line of credit and the timing of
annual royalty payments due in the second quarter of the fiscal year totaling
$650,000 as yet unpaid.

Gross profit for the first quarter of fiscal year 2014 was$1.9 million, or
49.3% of revenue, compared to$2.0 million, or 50.8% of revenue, in the first
quarter of fiscal year 2013. The decrease in gross margin was primarily
driven by lower production volumes in the first quarter of fiscal year 2014
compared to the prior year.

Total operating expense was$3.0 millionfor the first quarter of fiscal year
2014, up 2.9% year-over-year. Operating expense in the first quarter of fiscal
year 2014 included $61,000 related to the medical device excise tax which did
not occur in the prior year. Additionally, total operating expense in the
first quarter of fiscal year 2014 included a non-cash net gain on the change
in value of acquisition consideration of $9,000 compared to $154,000 in the
prior year. Excluding the impact from these items, operating expense declined
3.9% compared to the prior year. The 3.9% decrease in operating expense was
driven by a $194,000 decrease in research and development expense and a
$53,000 decrease in general and administrative expense, partially offset by a
$128,000 increase in sales and marketing expense due to investments made in
the direct sales force.

For the first quarter of fiscal year 2014,Urologixreported a net loss
of$1.3 million, or$0.06per diluted share, compared to a net loss of$1.1
million, or$0.05per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Outlook

The Company is reaffirming the fiscal year 2014 total revenue guidance range
of $15 million to $17 million.
