 Cardica Announces Fiscal 2014 Fourth Quarter And Full Year Financial Results  PR Newswire  REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Aug. 7, 2014  REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Aug. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Cardica, Inc. (Nasdaq: CRDC) today announced financial results for its fiscal fourth quarter and year ended June 30, 2014. Cardica's management will hold a conference call at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time to discuss the financial results and provide an update on the company's business.  "During fiscal 2014, we laid the foundation for a successful commercial organization, securing 510(k) clearance for our MicroCutter^® XCHANGE 30 in the United States, staffing a sales force and refining the manufacturing process designed to ensure we have the best possible product available for our customers," said Bernard A. Hausen, M.D., Ph.D., president and CEO of Cardica. "Moving into fiscal 2015, we are working with surgeons and their hospitals to bring this innovative surgical stapler into the operating room to facilitate less invasive surgical procedures as well as cases where stapling was either not a viable option or typically not done due to the size of the conventional surgical staplers."  Dr. Hausen continued, "The most common response we hear from surgeons is that they've been waiting for a five millimeter stapler for many years and clearly they see how this product will enable them to refine their procedures to be even less invasive and improve patient recovery while reducing the trauma of surgery."  Recent Highlights and Accomplishments:    oThe MicroCutter XCHANGE 30 continues to be used in remarkable procedures     including:         oJuan-Carlos Verdeja, M.D., F.A.C.S., completed a laparoscopic          appendectomy procedure at South Miami Hospital in Florida with          virtually no perceptible scar.        oA leading pediatric surgeon at a world-renowned academic medical          center performed a natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery          (NOTES) procedure where he used the MicroCutter to dissect and resect          scar tissue blocking the intestine of a pediatric patient, saving the          patient a full surgery and weeks of having an ileostomy bag to          collect intestinal content outside his body while an open surgical          site healed.    oThe MicroCutter XCHANGE 30 was featured as part of the Endosurgical     Simulation Course at the 45th Annual Meeting of the American Pediatric     Surgical Association (APSA) in Phoenix, Arizona;   oDr. Stefanos Demertzis, associate professor at the University of Berne,     Switzerland and senior staff cardiac surgeon and deputy head of the     department of cardiac surgery at the Cardiocentro Ticino Lugano, completed     a study that demonstrated that there was no difference in the chronic     healing response between the innovative D-shaped staple design of the     MicroCutter XCHANGE 30 and the B-shaped staple design used in conventional     12-millimeter surgical staplers;   oAs of June 30, 2014, secured approval from 38 U.S. hospital VACs who have     approved use of the MicroCutter XCHANGE 30 for product evaluation or have     purchased the MicroCutter XCHANGE 30;   oHired a sales director to oversee sales in Germany;   oIncreased cumulative worldwide shipments of PAS-Port^® Proximal     Anastomosis Systems to over 37,000 units, with 1,062 units shipped in the     fiscal 2014 fourth quarter;   oIncreased cumulative worldwide shipments of C-Port^® Distal Anastomosis     Systems to 14,300 units, with 118 units shipped in the fiscal 2014 fourth     quarter; and   oRaised $44.5 million in net proceeds from an underwritten public offering     of 37,375,000 shares of Cardica's common stock, offered at a price of     $0.85 per share, and 191,474 shares of Series A convertible preferred     stock, at a price of $85.00 per share.
