PART I
ITEM 1. BUSINESS
Overview of Business
We are a leading supplier of innovative products and services that process and store adult stem cells. Our products harvest stem cells of a single donor and are administered to that donor or a matched patient. Our devices and disposables are intended for use by physicians, researchers, hospitals and blood banks.
In February 2008, the Company announced the formation of a wholly-owned subsidiary, Vantus, Inc. Veterinary Stem Cell Laboratories (Vantus). Vantus involves a formal relationship with the Center for Equine Health and Stem Cell Regenerative Medicine Group at the University of California, Davis, School of Veterinary Medicine (UC Davis Veterinary). Its initial focus will be the banking (harvesting, processing and preservation) of equine stem cells for use in treatment of orthopedic injuries in the performance equine market.
We currently serve three markets in the stem cell arena:
    Storage Products – used by public and family cord blood banks for long-term storage;
 
    Cell Processing Products – currently used by public and family cord blood banks to process umbilical cord blood stem cells to treat blood disorders and intended future use by research centers, hospitals, clinics and physicians to treat ischemia, orthopedic injury, diabetes, neurological disease, etc. with processed bone marrow or adipose tissue stem cells;
 
    Wound Care Products – used by blood banks, blood centers and hospitals to treat acute and chronic dermal and surgical wounds with autologous and homologous whole blood;
Stem Cells
Stem cells have the remarkable potential to develop into many different cell types in the body. They serve as a repair system for the body and they can theoretically divide without limit to replenish other cells as long as the person or animal is alive. When a stem cell divides, each new cell has the potential to either remain a stem cell or become another type of cell with a more specialized function, such as a muscle cell, a red blood cell, or a brain cell.
There are two main types of stem cells: embryonic and adult stem cells. Embryonic stem cells are primitive cells derived from a 5-day preimplantation embryo that have the potential to become a wide variety of specialized cell types. Adult stem cells are cells found in human tissue that can renew themselves, and can differentiate to yield the major specialized cell types of that tissue. Adult stem cells are thought to reside in a specific area of each tissue where they may remain non-dividing for many years until they are activated by disease or tissue injury. The tissues reported to contain stem cells include umbilical cord blood, bone marrow, brain, peripheral blood, adipose, blood vessels, skeletal muscle, skin, and liver.
Stem Cell Therapy
Perhaps the most important potential application of human stem cells is the generation of cells and tissues that could be used for cell-based therapies. Today, donated organs and tissues are often used to replace ailing or destroyed tissue, but the need for transplantable tissues and organs far outweighs the available supply. Stem cells, directed to differentiate into specific cell types, offer the possibility of a renewable source of replacement cells and tissues to treat diseases including Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases, spinal cord injury, stroke, burns, heart disease, diabetes, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Since the first successful cord blood transplant performed in 1988, awareness of the potential therapeutic value of cord blood stem cells has increased and collection and storage has grown rapidly. These cord blood stem cells are harvested at no risk or pain to the donor and can be preserved in a cord blood bank for clinical use with a matched patient on short notice. Their use also results in a lower incidence of post-transplant immune complications than transplants with adult bone marrow stem cells.
Stem cell therapy is used to:
    Replace bone marrow damaged by high-dose chemotherapy or radiation therapy used to treat patients with a variety of cancers such as leukemia and lymphoma;
 
    Provide genetically healthy and functioning bone marrow to treat patients with more than 60 life threatening genetic diseases such as sickle cell anemia and immunodeficiency; and
 
    Regenerate and repair tissue including the treatment of myocardial infarction, peripheral limb ischemia and non-union bone fractures.
Based upon early clinical results, there is accumulating evidence supporting the belief that many of the stem cell therapy trials will result in approved cell therapies with broad applications in disease states and tissue regeneration procedures affecting significant patient populations, leading to a revolution in therapeutics. Although understanding the true potential of cell therapies and their ultimate impact on the practice of medicine remains a longer term prospect, we believe there are significant commercial opportunities in the market today for technologies supporting stem cell research and early cell based treatments.
Our Products and Services
    The BioArchive® System is an automated cryogenic system used in stem cell therapy to cryopreserve and archive stem cells and tissue for future transplant and treatment. The BioArchive System, which can store up to 3,626 units of stem cells, is the only fully automated system that integrates controlled rate freezing, quarantine and long term cryogenic storage. The robotic storage and retrieval of these stem cell units improves cell viability, provides precise inventory management and minimizes the possibility of human error. We have sold more than 180 BioArchive Systems to date to private and public cord blood banks and stem cell research institutes in more than 25 countries. The BioArchive System serves the human stem cell storage and veterinary markets.
 
    The AutoXpress™ Platform or AXP™ sets the standard for isolating and retrieving stem cells from umbilical cord blood. It’s an automated, closed, sterile system that volume reduces cord blood to a user defined volume in 30 minutes, retaining over 97% of the mononuclear cells. Self-powered and microprocessor-controlled, the AXP contains flow control optical sensors which achieve precise separation. The AXP provides stem cell laboratories with a reproducible and good manufacturing practices (“GMP”) compliant solution to more successfully isolate and capture stem cells with lower labor costs and reduced risk of contamination.
 
      The AXP has been commercially available since March 2006, marketed under a Master File with the FDA. In October 2007, the Company received 510(k) clearance from the FDA for the use of the AXP in the processing of cord blood for cryopreservation. The AXP serves the cell processing market.

    The MarrowXpress™ or MXP™, an extension of the AXP, defines a new processing standard for isolating and retrieving stem cells from bone marrow aspirate. It is an automated, closed, sterile system that volume-reduces blood from these sources to a user-defined volume in 30 minutes, while retaining over 90% of the mononuclear cells. Self-powered and microprocessor-controlled, the MarrowXpress Platform contains flow control optical sensors which achieve precise separation. In June 2008, we received the CE Mark, enabling commercial sales in Europe. In July 2008, we received authorization from the FDA to begin marketing the MXP for use in the clinical laboratory or intraoperatively at the point-of-care for preparation of a cell concentrate from bone marrow. The MXP serves the human stem cell processing.
 
    The CryoSeal® Fibrin Sealant (FS) System is an automated system used to prepare an autologous hemostatic surgical sealant from a patient’s own blood or from a single donor in approximately one hour. We received FDA approval to market the CryoSeal FS System in liver resection surgeries in July 2007. The CryoSeal serves the wound care market.
 
    Our Vantus subsidiary intends to offer services that process and cryogenically store equine stem cells from cell rich sources including cord blood collected during foaling, and bone marrow from yearlings and adults. The stem cells will be used in therapeutic treatment of orthopedic injuries in the performance equine market including Thoroughbreds, American Quarter Horses, and Arabians. Vantus will be selling a version of the MXP, VantusXpress™ (VXP) that will process fluids such as cord blood and bone marrow. Revenues of Vantus services will be contingent upon the Company successfully overcoming or mitigating the technical and business risks associated with this new venture.
Backlog
Our backlog was $2.3 million and $2.2 million as of June 30, 2008 and 2007; respectively. Our backlog consists of product orders for which a customer purchase order has been received and which is scheduled for shipment within the next twelve months. Orders are subject to cancellation or rescheduling by the customer, sometimes with a cancellation charge. Due to timing of order placement and product lead times, changes in product delivery schedules and cancellations, and because sales will often reflect orders shipped in the same quarter received, our backlog at any particular date is not necessarily indicative of sales for any succeeding period.
Competition
The competition for the BioArchive System in the storage market is limited to manufacturers of individual cryogenic components, such as dewars, controlled rate freezers and conventional systems, such as Taylor Wharton and MVE Biological Systems, a division of Chart Industries.
The competition for the AXP in the cell processing market is the Sepax system from BioSafe and manual processing methods. TissueGenesis and Cytori Celution produce products that process stem cells from adipose tissue.
The CryoSeal System has seven competitors in the wound care market: Baxter, JMI, OMRIX, Zymogenetics, Cytomedix, Sorin and Medtronic.
In the veterinary market, Vet-Stem and VetCell are providing stem cell products or services in the equine market.
Research and Development
The Company’s research and development activities are principally focused on the development of new products or services that support the stem cell processing and veterinary markets or significant upgrades to existing products. Specific activities in fiscal 2008 included completion of the MXP, product development of the Res-Q™ product and the development of an advanced cord blood stem cell container.

Table of Contents

The Res-Q product is intended for bone marrow stem cell processing for both the human and veterinary markets. The cell concentrates from bone marrow have been studied as a means to treat ischemic vascular diseases and to enhance wound healing in both human and veterinary markets. An unmet need is the development of a rapid, reliable, and easier to use method to achieve a higher recovery of stem cells from these sources. Res-Q technology represents our response for such a point of care device.  The technology is a next generation centrifuge based disposable device technology for the isolation and extraction of specific cell populations of therapeutic or diagnostic value from biological fluids at the point of care. The Company anticipates completing development of the Res-Q product in fiscal 2009.
Research and Development expense reflects the cost of these activities, as well as the costs to obtain regulatory approvals of new products and processes and to maintain the highest quality standards with respect to existing products. The Company’s R&D expenses were $7,172,000 or 33% of net revenues in 2008, $4,108,000 or 25% of net revenues in 2007 and $4,157,000 or 35% of net revenues in 2006. See “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.”
Manufacturing
The Company is currently manufacturing or assembling all major instruments and equipment sold by the Company, as well as manufacturing a limited number of its disposable products. The manufacturing site is compliant to the FDA’s Quality System Regulations (“QSR”), the European union Medical Device Directive, and ISO 13485. The Company believes that suppliers used by the Company are capable of producing sufficient quantities of all required components.
Instrument Manufacturing- The Company manufactures the BioArchive System, CryoSeal System, AXP/MXP devices and accessories, Ultra Rapid Plasma Freezers and Ultra Rapid Plasma Thawers at its Rancho Cordova, CA facility. The Company assembles the hardware from multiple subassemblies supplied by a wide base of skilled suppliers. However, the Company manufactures certain subassemblies, e.g., the BioArchive robotic, barcode-reading periscope, at the Rancho Cordova facility. Trained ThermoGenesis employees inspect incoming parts and subassembly products and perform final QC release based on performance criteria.
Disposables Manufacturing- The Company utilizes manufacturers that we believe have the technical capability and production capacity to manufacture our CryoSeal, BioArchive and AXP/MXP disposables. During fiscal 2008, we resolved critical supply and quality issues with our AXP disposables vendor. In June 2008, we completed manufacturing transfer activities and released first shipments from our second source for AXP disposables. We manufacture two disposables in house, TPD™ Reagent and BioArchive Overwrap Bags. Both are currently being sourced for contract manufacturing.
The majority of the materials used to produce the Company’s products are readily available from a variety of sources. Based upon current information from manufacturers, the Company does not anticipate any shortage of supply. In the event that it becomes necessary for us to obtain raw materials from an alternative supplier, we would first be required to qualify the quality systems and product of that alternative supplier. Safety stocks are used where there might be risk in qualifying a second supplier in a timely manner.

We, as well as any contract manufacturers of our products, are subject to inspections by the FDA and other regulatory agencies for compliance with applicable regulations, codified in the QSR which include requirements relating to manufacturing conditions, extensive testing, control documentation and other quality assurance procedures. Our facilities have undergone ISO 13485:2003 and Medical Device Directives (“MDD”) inspections, and we obtained approval to CE Mark our products. UL approval has also been obtained for our CryoSeal, BioArchive and AXP products. Failure to obtain or maintain necessary regulatory approval to market our products would have a material adverse impact on our business. See “Factors Affecting Operating Results.”
Government Regulation
Our medical devices are subject to regulation by numerous government agencies, including the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and comparable foreign agencies. To varying degrees, each of these agencies requires us to comply with laws and regulations governing the development, testing, manufacturing, labeling, marketing, distribution, and servicing of our research, investigational, and commercially distributed medical devices. These international, national, state, and local agencies set the legal requirements for ensuring that our products are safe and effective. Virtually every activity associated with our products and services are scrutinized on a periodic basis and failure to implement and maintain a Quality Management System could subject the Company to civil and criminal penalties.
The extent of the process required by the FDA before a medical device may be marketed in the United States depends on the classification of device. If the medical device is a Class III, such as the CryoSeal FS System, the process includes the following:
  Extensive pre-clinical laboratory and animal testing;
  Submission and approval of an investigational device exemption (“IDE”) application;
  Human clinical trials to establish the safety and efficacy of the medical device for the intended indication; and
  Submission and approval of a PMA to the FDA.
Pre-clinical trials include laboratory evaluation both through in vitro and in vivo animal studies to obtain safety information about the product to justify clinical trials in human subjects. Safety testing is performed to demonstrate the biocompatibility of the device, particularly if the device is intended to come into contact with blood or other body tissues. Pre-clinical studies must be performed by laboratories that comply with the FDA’s Good Laboratory Practices regulations. The results of the pre-clinical studies are submitted to the FDA as part of an IDE application and are reviewed by the Agency before human clinical trials can begin.
Clinical trials involve the application of the medical device or biologic produced by the medical device to patients by a qualified medical investigator, according to an approved protocol and approval from an Institutional Review Board (IRB). Clinical trials are conducted in accordance with FDA Good Clinical Practice regulations, standards developed by the International Conference on Harmonization (ICH), and an approved study protocol that details the objectives of the study, the parameters to be used to monitor participant safety and effectiveness of the product, or other criteria to be evaluated. Each protocol is submitted to the FDA as part of the IDE and each clinical study is conducted only after the approval of the IRB. The IRB considers, among other things, ethical factors, the potential risks to subjects participating in the trial, and the possible liability of the institution. The IRB also approves the consent form signed by the study participants.

Table of Contents

Medical device clinical trials are typically conducted as a phase III clinical trial. A safety pilot trial may be performed prior to initiating the phase III clinical trial to determine the safety of the product for specific targeted indications to determine dosage tolerance, optimal dosage and means of application and to identify possible adverse effects and safety risks. The FDA, the clinical trial sponsor, the investigators or the IRB may suspend clinical trials at any time if any one of them believes that study participants are being exposed to an unacceptable health risk.
The results of product development, pre-clinical studies and clinical studies are submitted to the FDA as a PMA for approval of the marketing and commercial shipment of the medical device in the United States. The FDA may deny a PMA if applicable regulatory criteria are not satisfied or may require additional clinical testing. Even if the appropriate data is submitted, the FDA may ultimately decide the PMA does not satisfy the criteria for approval. Product approvals, once obtained, may be withdrawn if compliance with regulatory standards is not maintained or if safety concerns arise after the product reaches the market. The FDA may require post-marketing testing and surveillance programs to monitor the effect of the medical devices that have been commercialized and has the power to prevent or limit future marketing of the product based on the results of such programs.
Each manufacturing establishment must be registered with the FDA and is subject to a biennial inspection by the FDA for compliance with the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and the Quality System Regulation. In addition, each manufacturing establishment in California must be registered with the California State Food and Drug Branch and is subject to an annual inspection by the State of California for compliance with the applicable state regulations. We are also subject to various environmental laws and regulations, both within and outside the U.S. Our operations involve the use of substances regulated under environmental laws, primarily manufacturing and sterilization processes. We do not expect that compliance with environmental protection laws will have a material impact on our consolidated results of operations, financial position, or cash flows. Workplace safety, hazardous material, and controlled substances regulations also govern our activities. The Company has a California Environmental Protection Agency Identification number for the disposal of bio-hazardous waste from its R&D biological lab.
Several of our other medical devices are categorized as Class II, such as the BioArchive and AXP Express. These devices have a lower potential safety risk to the patient, user, or caregiver. While a PMA submission is not a requirement for these devices, a similar (but simpler and shorter) process of premarket notification, known as a 510(k) submission, is required to demonstrate that the device is as safe and effective as (substantially equivalent) to a medical devices that has been legally marketed in the United States prior to May 29, 1976. Once the FDA notifies the Company that the notification has been cleared, the medical device may be marketed and distributed in the United States.
Some of our products that have minimal risk to the intended user and do not involve direct patient interaction may be deemed by the FDA as being exempt from FDA approval or clearance. While submissions to the Agency are not a requirement for these Class I (low risk) devices, compliance with the Quality System Regulation is still mandated.
Failure to comply with applicable FDA requirements can result in fines, injunctions, civil penalties, recall or seizure of products, total or partial suspension of production, distribution, sales and marketing, or refusal of the FDA to grant approval of a PMA or clearance of a 510(k). Actions by the FDA might also include withdrawal of marketing clearances and criminal prosecution. Such actions could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition, and results of operation.

Internationally, we are required to comply with a multitude of other regulatory requirements. To legally market our medical devices in Canada, we fall under the auspices of Health Canada and the Canadian Medical Device Regulations. Health Canada reviews medical devices to assess their safety, effectiveness and quality before being authorized for sale in Canada. The Therapeutic Products Directorate (TPD) undertakes a variety of activities, including the promulgation of policies and regulations to support its role as the federal regulatory authority for the sale of medical devices in Canada. In Canada, manufacturers must receive a medical device license for certain health products defined as a “device” under the Canadian Food and Drugs Act before they can be sold on the Canadian market. To determine which devices need a license, medical devices are categorized based on the risks associated with their use. Prior to selling a device in Canada, manufacturers of Class II, III and IV devices must obtain a medical device license. Although Class I devices do not require a license, manufacturers, distributors and importers are required to obtain an establishment license. Health Canada requires medical device manufacturers to use a quality system certificate as evidence of compliance to the appropriate regulatory quality system requirement and Health Canada will only accept quality system certificates that have been issued by special third party recognized auditing organizations (registrars) under the Canadian Medical Devices Conformity Assessment System (CMDCAS). The Medical Devices Regulations require class II, III and IV medical devices to be designed and/or manufactured under ISO 13485:2003.
In the European Union, a single regulatory approval process has been created and approval is represented by the CE Mark. To be able to affix the CE Mark to our medical devices and distribute them in the European Union, we must meet minimum standards for safety and quality (known as the essential requirements) and comply with one or more conformity routes. A Notified Body assesses our quality management system and compliance to the Medical Device Directive.
To be sold in Japan, most medical devices must undergo thorough safety examinations and demonstrate medical efficacy before they can be granted approval (known as “shonin”). The Japanese government, through the Ministry of Health, Labor, and Welfare (MHLW) regulates medical devices under the Pharmaceutical Affairs Law (PAL).
Patents and Proprietary Rights
The Company believes that patent protection is important for products and potential segments of its current and proposed business. In the United States, the Company currently holds twenty two (22) patents, and has three (3) patents pending to protect the designs of products which the Company intends to market. There can be no assurance, however, as to the breadth or degree of protection afforded to the Company or the competitive advantage derived by the Company from current patents and future patents, if any. Although the Company believes that its patents and the Company’s existing and proposed products do not infringe upon patents of other parties, it is possible that the Company’s existing patent rights may be challenged and found invalid or found to violate proprietary rights of others. In the event any of the Company’s products are challenged as infringing, the Company would be required to modify the design of its product, obtain a license or litigate the issue. There is no assurance that the Company would be able to finance costly patent litigation, or that it would be able to obtain licenses or modify its products in a timely manner. Failure to defend a patent infringement action or to obtain a license or implementation of modifications would have a material adverse effect on the Company’s continued operations.

Table of Contents

While patents have been issued or are pending, the Company realizes (a) that the Company will benefit from patents issued only if it is able to market its products in sufficient quantities of which there is no assurance; (b) that substitutes for these patented items, if not already in existence, may be developed; (c) that the granting of a patent is not a determination of the validity of a patent, such validity can be attacked in litigation or the Company or owner of the patent may be forced to institute legal proceedings to enforce validity; and (d) that the costs of such litigation, if any, could be substantial and could adversely affect the Company.
Licenses and Distribution Rights
In May 2008, the Company and GE Healthcare Bio-Sciences AB (GE) amended their international distribution agreement, effective July 1, 2008. Under the terms of the amendment GE will no longer sell the BioArchive System and related disposables. GE will remain the exclusive distributor for the AXP product line for cord blood applications in North America, Europe and Asia (excluding China).The amendment also includes price increases for the AXP disposable bag sets sold to GE. The expiration date of the original agreement remains December 31, 2010, and will be automatically renewed for additional two year periods unless terminated by one of the parties 12 months prior to the end of the then current term. Under the original agreement, signed October 13, 2005, the Company received fees for the rights granted under the agreement. The amounts received are being recognized as revenue on the straight-line method over the initial 5-year term of the contract.
On August 22, 2006, The Company announced that GE Healthcare (GEHC) and Cord Blood Registry (CBR), the world’s largest family cord blood bank, signed a multi-year contract to supply CBR with the Company’s AXP Platform and disposables. In conjunction with this agreement, the Company signed a Product Development and Supply Assurance Agreement with CBR which assures the supply of AXP products for a 15-year period. This agreement also initiates the development of an advanced cord blood stem cell container.
In July 2006, the Company entered into a Product Development and Supply Agreement with Biomet. Under the development phase of this agreement, Biomet will pay the Company $1.1 million in milestone payments to develop a fibrinogen concentration kit. The Company will grant intellectual property license rights to Biomet and its affiliates to manufacture, use and sell the product for use in surgical hemostats, graft delivery systems and surgeries. The Company has the right of first offer to manufacture the product; and if the Company does not manufacture the product, Biomet will pay a royalty. The agreement has a term of 5 years.
In July 2005, the Company entered into a non-exclusive, five-year distribution agreement with Biomet to supply Biomet with the Company’s existing CE marked TPD for sale in Europe for all applications and worldwide for spinal applications in order to allow them to immediately begin marketing their platelet gel product. Previously, Biomet had been selling bovine thrombin with their platelet gel product.

On March 29, 2005, the Company entered into a Supply Agreement with Cell Factors Technologies, Inc., an Indiana corporation and an affiliate of Biomet, Inc. (“CFT”). Under the agreement, the Company will manufacture a thrombin disposable and reagent for the Clotalyst System. Clotalyst is CFT’s autologous clotting factor device and blood processing disposables. The Company assumes the role of manufacturer for CFT of the Clotalyst device and blood processing disposables for a term of five years. The agreement requires CFT, upon FDA clearance, to purchase a minimum quantity of 20,000 devices. CFT has paid a one time advance fee for engineering and development of the product. The agreement was amended in March of 2007 to change its structure from a supply agreement to a license agreement. After Biomet purchases 2,500 products over the course of five subsequent calendar quarters, the Company will grant intellectual property license rights to Biomet to manufacture, use and sell the product, excluding the reagent. The Company will receive royalty payments on sales of the disposables and remain the manufacturer of the reagent. The term of the agreement has been amended to continue for the life of the Clotalyst Reagent patents, approximately June 2019.
On March 28, 2005, the Company entered into a five-year Distribution and License Agreement with Asahi Kasei Medical Co., Ltd. (“Asahi”). Under the agreement, the Company granted Asahi exclusive rights to sell the CryoSeal System in Japan. This agreement replaces the parties’ prior Distribution and Manufacturing License Agreement for the CryoSeal System. The agreement also granted Asahi the right to manufacture the processing disposables and thrombin reagent for production of thrombin (“Thrombin Activation Device”) in Japan. Asahi paid a non-refundable fee upon signing the agreement. Asahi will have the non-exclusive right to manufacture and sell the Thrombin Activation Device (“TAD”) Stand Alone in Japan. Asahi has a right of first refusal to expand the territory to include South Korea, North Korea, Taiwan, the Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, India and Malaysia. In June 2008, the parties extended the contract for an additional two years. The agreement shall be automatically renewed for one year terms unless Asahi terminates.
In March 1997, the Company and New York Blood Center (“NYBC”), as licensors, entered into a license agreement with Pall Medical, a subsidiary of Pall Corporation, as Licensees through which Pall Medical became the exclusive worldwide manufacturer (excluding Japan) for a system of sterile, disposable containers developed by the Company and NYBC for the processing of hematopoietic stem cells sourced from placental cord blood (“PCB”). The system is designed to simplify and streamline the harvesting of stem cell rich blood from detached placental cords and the manual concentration, cryopreservation (freezing) and transfusion of the PCB stem cells while maintaining the highest stem cell population and viability from each PCB donation. In May of 1999, the Company and Pall Medical amended the original agreement, and the Company regained the rights to distribute the bag sets outside North America & Europe under the Company’s name, and in May of 2000, the Company negotiated rights to directly co-market the bag sets in Europe in exchange for an additional royalty fee, while continuing to utilize Pall Europe’s distribution centers.
Employees
As of June 30, 2008, the Company had 90 employees, 24 of whom were engaged in research and new product development, regulatory affairs, clinical and scientific affairs, 32 in manufacturing and quality control, 17 in sales, marketing and customer service and 17 in administration. The Company also utilizes temporary employees throughout the year to address business needs and significant fluctuations in orders and product manufacturing. None of our employees are represented by a collective bargaining agreement, nor have we experienced any work stoppage.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS
An investment in ThermoGenesis’ common stock is subject to risks inherent to our business. The material risks and uncertainties that management believes affect us are described below. Before making an investment decision, you should carefully consider the risks and uncertainties described below together with all of the other information included or incorporated by reference in this report. The risks and uncertainties described below are not the only ones facing ThermoGenesis. Additional risks and uncertainties that management is not aware of or focused on or that management currently deems immaterial may also impair ThermoGenesis’ business operations. This report is qualified in its entirety by these risk factors.
If any of the following risks actually occur, our financial condition and results of operations could be materially and adversely affected. If this were to happen, the value of our common stock could decline significantly, and you could lose all or part of your investment.
Risks Related to Our Business
Our New Products Are at Initial Market Introduction, and We Are Not Sure the Market Will Accept Them. The market acceptance of our new products will depend upon the medical community and third-party payers accepting the products as clinically useful, reliable, accurate, and cost effective compared to existing and future products or procedures. Market acceptance will also depend on our ability to adequately train technicians on how to use the CryoSeal System, the AXP and MXP Platforms and our products currently in development. Even if our new product systems are clinically adopted, the use may not be recommended by the medical profession or hospitals unless acceptable reimbursement from health care and third party payers is available. Failure of these new products to achieve significant market share could have material adverse effects on our long term business, financial condition, and results of operation.

We have Limited Experience in the Veterinary Market, which may Negatively Affect our Ability to Develop Effective Therapies and Generate Sufficient Revenues. Our products have not been used commercially outside of the human medical market. Although we are performing extensive research and development activities and have aligned ourselves with UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine (Veterinary), we have no experience in the equine stem cell therapy market. We may not be able to effectively develop and market these services. We also cannot assure you that we will be able to successfully operate this business. Our efforts in Vantus to expand into this business, have and will continue to require, increased operating and capital costs. Our limited experience could result in an inability to attract and retain customers, generate sufficient revenues and achieve profitability. We cannot assure you that we will be successful in marketing and operating this new business or, even if we are successful in doing so, that we will not experience additional losses.
Our Inability to Protect Our Patents, Trademarks, and Other Proprietary Rights could Adversely Impact Our Competitive Position. We believe that our patents, trademarks, and other proprietary rights are important to our success and our competitive position. Accordingly, we devote substantial resources to the establishment and protection of our patents, trademarks, and proprietary rights. We currently hold patents for products, and have patents pending for additional products that we market or intend to market. However, our actions to establish and protect our patents, trademarks, and other proprietary rights may be inadequate to prevent imitation of our products by others or to prevent others from claiming violations of their trademarks and proprietary rights by us. If our products are challenged as infringing upon patents of other parties, we will be required to modify the design of the product, obtain a license, or litigate the issues, all of which may have an adverse business effect on us.
Failure to Protect Our Trade Secrets May Assist Our Competitors. We use various methods, including confidentiality agreements with employees, vendors, and customers, to protect our trade secrets and proprietary know-how for our products. However, such methods may not provide complete protection and there can be no assurance that others will not obtain our know-how, or independently develop the same or similar technology. We prepare and file for patent protection on aspects of our technology which we think will be integrated into final products early in design phases, thereby attempting to mitigate the potential risks.
Our Lack of Production Experience May Delay Producing Our New Products. We have manufactured our Blood Plasma Thawers, Freezers and BioArchive Systems for a number of years. We do not have significant experience in manufacturing the CryoSeal System, the AXP and MXP devices or in the manufacture of disposables. There can be no assurance that our current resources and manufacturing facility could handle a significant increase in orders for either the BioArchive System or the CryoSeal System. If we are unable to meet demand for sales of the new systems, we would need to contract with third-party manufacturers for the backlog, and no assurances can be made that such third-party manufacturers can be retained, or retained on terms favorable to us and our pricing of the equipment. Inability to have products manufactured by third parties at a competitive price will erode anticipated margins for such products, and negatively impact our profitability.
Dependence on Suppliers for Disposable Products and Custom Components May Impact the Production Schedule. The Company obtains certain disposable products and custom components from a limited number of suppliers. If the supplier raises the price or discontinues production, the Company may have to find another qualified supplier to provide the item. In the event that it becomes necessary for us to find another supplier, we would first be required to qualify the quality assurance systems and product quality of that alternative supplier. Any operational issues with, or transfer between qualified suppliers may impact the production schedule, therefore delaying revenues, and may cause the price of disposables or key components to increase.

Quality Problems with our Products or Processes could Harm our Reputation for Producing High Quality Products and Decrease our Future Revenues. Quality is extremely important to us and our customers due to the consequences of product failure. Our quality certifications and product performance during evaluations and validations are critical to the marketing success of our products. If we fail to meet our customer’s quality standards our reputation could be damaged, we could lose current and potential customers and our revenues could decline as a result.
All of our Operations are Conducted at a Single Location. Any Disruption at our Facility could Delay Revenues or Increase our Expenses. All of our operations are conducted at a single location although we contract our manufacturing of certain disposables and components. We take precautions to safeguard our facility, including insurance, health and safety protocols, and off-site storage of computer data. However, a natural disaster, such as a fire, flood or earthquake, could cause substantial delays in our operations, damage or destroy our manufacturing equipment or inventory, and cause us to incur additional expenses. The insurance we maintain against fires, floods, and other natural disasters may not be adequate to cover our losses in any particular case.
We are Heavily Reliant on a Single Distributor to Market and Sell our AXP Products. GEHC is the primary distributor of the AXP Platform. We have limited control over their sales and marketing efforts for these products. Since the AXP Platform products are a significant portion of our revenues and projected revenue growth, a delay or failure by our distributor to successfully market these products may decrease our revenues and competitive advantage.
Financial and Market Risks
We Have Incurred Net Losses since Our Inception and Expect Losses to Continue. Except for net income of $11,246 for fiscal 1994, we have not been profitable since our inception. For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2008, we had a net loss of $9,181,000, and an accumulated deficit at June 30, 2008, of $89,809,000. We will continue to incur significant costs as we continue our efforts to develop and market our current products and related applications. Although we are executing on our business plan to develop and market launch new products, continuing losses may impair our ability to fully meet our objectives for new product sales.
Failure to Retain or Hire Key Personnel May Adversely Affect Our Ability to Sustain or Grow Our Business. Our ability to operate successfully and manage our potential future growth depends significantly upon retaining key research, technical, clinical, regulatory, sales, marketing and managerial personnel and attracting and retaining additional highly qualified personnel in these areas. Our future success partially depends upon the continued services of key technical and senior management personnel. Our future success also depends on our continuing ability to attract, retain and motivate highly qualified managerial and technical personnel. The inability to retain or attract qualified personnel could have a significant negative effect upon our efforts and thereby materially harm our business and financial condition.
Product Liability and Uninsured Risks May Adversely Affect the Continuing Operations. We operate in an industry susceptible to significant product liability claims. We may be liable if any of our products cause injury, illness, or death. These claims may be brought by individuals seeking relief or by groups seeking to represent a class. We also may be required to recall certain of our products should they become damaged or if they are defective. We are not aware of any material product liability claim against us. However, product liability claims may be asserted against us in the future based on events we are not aware of at the present time. Further, we maintain a general liability policy that includes product liability coverage of $1,000,000 per occurrence and $2,000,000 per year in the aggregate. However, a product liability claim against us could have a material adverse effect on our business or financial condition.

A Significant Portion of our Revenue is to Customers in Foreign Countries. We may Lose Revenues, Market Share, and Profits due to Exchange Rate Fluctuations and Other Factors related to our Foreign Business. In the year ended June 30, 2008, sales to customers in foreign countries comprised approximately 41% of our revenues. Our foreign business is subject to economic, political and regulatory uncertainties and risks that are unique to each area of the world. Fluctuations in exchange rates may also affect the prices that our foreign customers are willing to pay, and may put us at a price disadvantage compared to other competitors. Potentially volatile shifts in exchange rates may negatively affect our financial condition and operations.
The Preparation of our Consolidated Financial Statements in Accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles Requires Us to Make Estimates, Judgments, and Assumptions that may Ultimately Prove to be Incorrect. The accounting estimates and judgments that management must make in the ordinary course of business affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the periods presented. If the underlying estimates are ultimately proven to be incorrect, subsequent adjustments could have a material adverse effect on our operating results for the period or periods in which the change is identified. Additionally, subsequent adjustments could require us to restate our consolidated financial statements. Restating consolidated financial statements could result in a material decline in the price of our stock.
Risks Related to Our Industry
Our Business is Heavily Regulated, Resulting in Increased Costs of Operations and Delays in Product Sales. Most of our products require FDA approval or clearance to sell in the U.S. and will require approvals from comparable agencies to sell our products in foreign countries. These authorizations may limit the U.S. or foreign markets in which our products may be sold or circumscribe applications for U.S. or foreign markets in which our products may be sold. Although the majority of our products related to freezing blood components are currently exempt from the requirement to file a 510(k) or PMA, that situation may change in the future as the FDA moves to regulate cell therapy products being processed by the BioArchive System and/or AXP Platform. In anticipation of possible future regulation by the FDA, the Company has filed, and is maintaining, a Master File on the BioArchive System and the AXP Platform. However, currently the BioArchive, AXP and the ThermoLine™ products are being marketed and sold worldwide. Further, our products must be manufactured under principals of our quality system for continued CE Marking that allows our products to be marketed and sold in Europe, which are similar to the quality system regulations of both the FDA and California Department of Health. Failure to comply with those quality system requirements and regulations may subject the Company to delays in production while it corrects any deficiency found by either the FDA, the State of California, or the Company’s Notifying European Body during any audit of our quality system. If we are found to be out of compliance, we could receive warning letters or even be temporarily shut down in manufacturing while the non-conformances are rectified.
Competition in Our Industry is Intense and Will Likely Involve Companies with Greater Resources than We Have. We hope to develop a competitive advantage in the medical applications of our products, but there are many competitors that are substantially larger and who possess greater financial resources and personnel than we have. Our current principal market is cord blood banks. With regard to the BioArchive System and AXP Platform, numerous larger and better-financed medical device manufacturers may choose to enter this market as it develops. The CryoSeal System may face competition from major plasma fractionators that currently sell fibrin glue sourced from pooled plasma outside the U.S.

Influence By the Government and Insurance Companies May Adversely Impact Sales of Our Products. Our business may be materially affected by continuing efforts by government, third party payers such as Medicare, Medicaid, and private health insurance plans, to reduce the costs of healthcare. For example, in certain foreign markets the pricing and profit margins of certain healthcare products are subject to government controls. In addition, increasing emphasis on managed care in the U.S. will continue to place pressure on the pricing of healthcare products. As a result, continuing efforts to contain healthcare costs may result in reduced sales or price reductions for our products. To date, we are not aware of any direct impact on our pricing or product sales due to such efforts by governments to contain healthcare costs, and we do not anticipate any immediate impact in the near future.
We are Dependent on our Suppliers and Manufacturers to Meet Existing Regulations. Certain of our suppliers and manufacturers are subject to heavy government regulations, including FDA Quality System Regulation compliance, in the operation of their facilities, products and manufacturing processes. Any adverse action by the FDA against our suppliers or manufacturers could delay supply or manufacture of component products required to be integrated or sold with our products. There are no assurances we will be successful in locating an alternative supplier or manufacturer to meet product shipment or launch deadlines. As a result, our sales, contractual commitments and financial forecasts may be significantly affected by any such delays.

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements contained in this report.
(a) Overview
We are principally a leading supplier of innovative products that process, store and administer therapeutic doses of adult stem cells for treatment of disease and injury. The stem cell therapy market is a broad, rapidly growing field of medicine that involves the collection, purification, manipulation and administration of stem cells, to treat malignant or genetic blood diseases, tailored to individual patients. This methodology of personalized treatment is considerably different than practices with generic conventional pharmaceutical drugs. Pharmaceutical drugs are produced in large quantities and are effective on most patients with similar underlying medical conditions. Additionally, these drugs typically consist of inert materials that can be stored in medicine cabinets at room temperature. In contrast, “personalized” cell therapies are manufactured one at a time, are intended for a single patient and require extremely low storage temperatures (-196°C in some cases) in order to preserve the cells, blood proteins or growth factors. Our devices and disposables are intended for use by physicians, researchers, hospitals and blood banks.
In February 2008, the Company announced the formation of a wholly-owned subsidiary, Vantus, Inc. Veterinary Stem Cell Laboratories (Vantus). Vantus involves a formal relationship with the Center for Equine Health and Stem Cell Regenerative Medicine Group at UC Davis Veterinary. Its initial focus will be the banking (harvesting, processing and preservation) of equine stem cells for use in treatment of orthopedic injuries in the performance equine market.
Our Products
The BioArchive System, an automated cryogenic device, is used by cord blood stem cell banks in more than 25 countries for cryopreserving and archiving cord blood stem cell units for transplant. The BioArchive System has initially been configured to automate the cryopreservation and archiving in liquid nitrogen of units of stem cells sourced from umbilical cord blood.
The AXP Platform consists of two products:
The AutoXpress or AXP is an innovative product which automates the isolation and concentration of stem cells from cord blood into a fixed 20 ml volume in a functionally closed sterile environment. It includes a compact battery powered device and a proprietary disposable bag set. The AXP has been commercially available since March 2006, marketed under a Master File with the FDA. In October 2007, the Company received 510k clearance from the FDA for the use of the AXP in the processing of cord blood for cryopreservation. The AXP replaces the current clinical process, which is typically an 18-step manual method over a ninety (90) minute period, with a semi-automated process requiring only thirty (30) minutes. Included in the set is a 25 ml freezing bag that can be archived in the BioArchive System.
The MarrowXpress or MXP is an automated, closed, sterile system that volume-reduces bone marrow to a user-defined volume in 30 minutes, while retaining over 90% of the mononuclear cells. Self-powered and microprocessor-controlled, the MarrowXpress Platform contains flow control optical sensors which achieve precise separation. The Company received authorization from the FDA to commercially market the MXP in July 2008.
The CryoSeal System produces a second-generation surgical sealant which harvests the two interactive protein component solutions of a fibrin sealant: (1) the wound healing proteins of fibrinogen, fibronectin, Factor VIII, von Willebrands Factor and Factor XIII and (2) the activating enzyme, thrombin from the patient’s own blood. When combined at the bleeding wound site, the two components form an adhesive gel that stops bleeding and bonds tissue. This advanced surgical sealant may be manufactured in either

hospitals or blood centers and competes with conventional fibrin sealants, sourced from “pools” of plasma purchased from up to ten thousand individuals.
Critical Accounting Policies
The Company’s discussion and analysis of its financial condition and results of operations are based upon the Company’s consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of these consolidated financial statements requires the Company to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. On an on-going basis, the Company evaluates its estimates, including those related to stock-based compensation, bad debts, inventories, warranties, contingencies and litigation. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.
The Company believes the following critical accounting policies affect its more significant judgments and estimates used in the preparation of its consolidated financial statements.
Stock-Based Compensation:
The Company accounts for stock-based employee compensation arrangements in accordance with the provisions of Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 123(R), Shared-Based Payments (FAS 123(R)). Under FAS 123(R), compensation cost is calculated on the date of the grant using the Black Scholes-Merton option-pricing formula. The compensation expense is then amortized over the vesting period. The Company uses the Black-Scholes-Merton option-pricing formula in determining the fair value of the Company’s options at the grant date and applies judgment in estimating the key assumptions that are critical to the model such as the expected term, volatility and forfeiture rate of an option. The Company’s estimate of these key assumptions is based on historical information and judgment regarding market factors and trends. If actual results are not consistent with the Company’s assumptions and judgments used in estimating the key assumptions, the Company may be required to record additional compensation or income tax expense, which could have a material impact on the Company’s financial position and results of operations.
Revenue Recognition:
The Company recognizes revenue including multiple element arrangements, in accordance with the provisions of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (“SEC”) Staff Accounting Bulletin (“SAB”) No. 104, Revenue Recognition and the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) Emerging Issues Task Force (“EITF”) 00-21, Revenue Agreements with Multiple Deliverables. Revenues from the sale of the Company’s products are recognized when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred (or services have been rendered), the price is fixed or determinable, and collectibility is reasonably assured. The Company generally ships products F.O.B. shipping point. There is no conditional evaluation on any product sold and recognized as revenue. All foreign sales are denominated in U.S. dollars. Amounts billed in excess of revenue recognized are recorded as deferred revenue on the balance sheet.
The Company’s foreign sales are generally through distributors. There is no right of return provided for distributors. For sales of products made to distributors, the Company considers a number of factors in determining whether revenue is recognized upon transfer of title to the distributor, or when payment is received. These factors include, but are not limited to, whether the payment terms offered to the distributor are considered to be non-standard, the distributor history of adhering to the terms of its contractual arrangements with the Company, the level of inventories maintained by the distributor,

19


Table of Contents

whether the Company has a pattern of granting concessions for the benefit of the distributor, and whether there are other conditions that may indicate that the sale to the distributor is not substantive. The Company currently recognizes revenue primarily on the sell-in method with its distributors.
Revenue arrangements with multiple elements are divided into separate units of accounting if certain criteria are met, including whether the delivered item has value to the customer on a stand-alone basis and whether there is objective and reliable evidence of the fair value of the undelivered items. Revenue is recognized as specific elements indicated in sales contracts are executed. If an element is essential to the functionality of an arrangement, the entire arrangement’s revenue is deferred until that essential element is delivered. The fair value of each undelivered element that is not essential to the functionality of the system is deferred until performance or delivery occurs. The fair value of an undelivered element is based on vendor specific objective evidence or third party evidence of fair value as appropriate. Costs associated with inconsequential or perfunctory elements in multiple element arrangements are accrued at the time of revenue recognition. The Company accounts for training and installation as a separate element of a multiple element arrangement. The Company therefore recognizes the fair value of training and installation services upon their completion when the Company is obligated to perform such services.
Service revenue generated from contracts for providing maintenance of equipment is amortized over the life of the agreement. All other service revenue is recognized at the time the service is completed.
Milestone payments the Company receives under research and development arrangements are recognized as revenue upon achievement of the milestone events, which represent the culmination of the earnings process, and when collectibility is reasonably assured. Milestone payments are triggered by the results of the Company’s development efforts. Accordingly, the milestone payments are substantially at risk at the inception of the contract, and the amounts of the payments assigned thereto are commensurate with the milestone achieved. Upon the achievement of a milestone event, which may include acceptance by the counterparty, the Company has no future performance obligations related to that milestone as the milestone payments received by the Company are nonrefundable.
For licensing agreements pursuant to which the Company receives up-front licensing fees for products or technologies that will be provided by the Company over the term of the arrangements, the Company defers the up-front fees and recognizes the fees as revenue on a straight-line method over the term of the respective license. For license agreements that require no continuing performance on the Company’s part, license fee revenue is recognized immediately upon grant of the license.
Shipping and handling fees billed to customers are included in product and other revenues, while the related costs are included in cost of product and other revenues.
Allowance for Doubtful Accounts:
The Company maintains allowances for doubtful accounts for estimated losses resulting from the inability of its customers to make required payments. If the financial condition of the Company’s customers were to deteriorate, resulting in an impairment of their ability to make payments, additional allowances may be required, which would be charged against earnings.
Warranty:
The Company provides for the estimated cost of product warranties at the time revenue is recognized. While the Company engages in extensive product quality programs and processes, including actively monitoring and evaluating the quality of its component suppliers, the Company’s warranty obligation is affected by product failure rates, material usage and service delivery costs incurred in correcting a product failure. Should actual product failure rates, material usage or service delivery costs differ from the

Table of Contents

Company’s estimates, revisions to the estimated warranty liability could have a material impact on the Company’s financial position, cash flows or results of operations.
Inventory Reserve:
The Company plans inventory procurement and production based on orders received, forecasted demand and supplier requirements. The Company writes down its inventories for estimated obsolescence or unmarketable inventories equal to the difference between the cost of inventories and its net realizable value based upon estimates about future demand from our customers and distributors and market conditions. Because some of the Company’s products are highly dependent on government and third-party funding, current customer use and validation, and completion of regulatory and field trials, there is a risk that we will forecast incorrectly and purchase or produce excess inventories. As a result, actual demand may differ from forecasts, and such a difference may have a material adverse effect on future results of operations due to required write-offs of excess or obsolete inventory. This inventory risk may be further compounded for the CryoSeal family of products because they are at initial market introduction and market acceptance will depend upon the customer accepting the products as clinically useful, reliable, accurate and cost effective compared to existing and future products and completion of required clinical or field acceptance trials.
(b) Results of Operations
The following is Management’s discussion and analysis of certain significant factors which have affected the Company’s financial condition and results of operations during the periods included in the accompanying consolidated financial statements.
Results of Operations for the Year Ended June 30, 2008 as Compared to the Year Ended June 30, 2007
Net Revenues:
Net revenues for the year ended June 30, 2008 were $21,946,000 compared to $16,751,000 for the year ended June 30, 2007, an increase of $5,195,000 or 31%. The increase is primarily due to revenues from AXP disposables, which increased $4,271,000 due to higher sales volume from existing customers. Additionally, revenues from BioArchive devices and accessories increased $1,111,000 as there were 26 devices sold in fiscal 2008 compared to 20 shipments in fiscal 2007. These increases were offset by a decrease in development milestone payments and license fees of approximately $800,000.

Gross Profit:
The Company’s gross profit was $6,970,000 or 32% of net revenues for the year ended June 30, 2008, as compared to $5,197,000 or 31% for the year ended June 30, 2007. The gross margin for fiscal 2008 was impacted by the costs associated with the voluntary recall of AXP disposable bag sets. The incremental costs of $386,000 were for testing, materials and the destruction of bag sets which were not considered resalable. No bag set lots have failed the requisite testing performed on the recalled inventory. This was offset by lower warranty costs for the CryoSeal and BioArchive devices.
Selling, General and Administrative Expenses:
Selling, general and administrative expenses were $10,165,000 for the year ended June 30, 2008, compared to $9,630,000 for the year ended June 30, 2007, an increase of $535,000 or 6%. The increase is due to increased legal costs primarily related to the discussions with GE Healthcare regarding the distribution agreement and consultation during the voluntary AXP recall effort.
Research and Development Expenses:
Research and development expenses for the year ended June 30, 2008 were $7,172,000 compared to $4,108,000 for fiscal 2007, an increase of $3,064,000 or 75%. The increase is primarily due to stock compensation, salaries and consulting fees of approximately $1,800,000 related to the Chief Technology Architect (CTA), a position filled by the Company’s former Chief Executive Officer as of August 1, 2007. Effective May 1, 2008, the CTA resigned to become a consultant to the Company. Also adding to the increase in research and development was $620,000 in expenses associated with the Vantus subsidiary, a $350,000 increase in operating supplies for cell therapy research projects and payments made to UC Davis of $130,000 in connection with an agreement to develop stem cell treatments.
Management believes that product development and refinement are essential to maintaining the Company’s market position. Therefore, the Company considers these costs as continuing costs of doing business. No assurances can be given that the products or markets recently developed or under development will be successful.

Net Revenues:
Net revenues for the year ended June 30, 2007 were $16,751,000 compared to $12,048,000 for the year ended June 30, 2006, an increase of $4,703,000 or 39%. Cell Therapy revenues were $12,375,000 for the year ended June 30, 2007, compared to $9,017,000 for the corresponding fiscal 2006 period, an increase of $3,358,000 or 37%. This increase in Cell Therapy revenues was primarily due to the sale of AXP disposables, $2,557,000 for the year ended June 30, 2007, versus $118,000 for the year ended June 30, 2006. The AXP product line was launched in fiscal 2006. Sales of Cell Therapy spare parts were $930,000 for the year ended June 30, 2007, an increase of $583,000. Cell Therapy revenues also

Surgical Wound Care revenues were $2,134,000 for the year ended June 30, 2007, compared to $1,021,000 for the year ended June 30, 2006. The increase is primarily due to $950,000 in development milestone payments.

Additionally, revenues from our legacy product line, the ThermoLine, increased $232,000 to $2,123,000 for the year ended June 30, 2007.
Gross Profit:
The Company’s gross profit was $5,197,000 or 31% of net revenues for the year ended June 30, 2007, as compared to $4,343,000 or 36% for the year ended June 30, 2006. The decrease in gross profit percentage is due to an additional $686,000 of product testing and destruction of lots as part of quality assurance programs of the AXP bagset disposables. Additionally, higher warranty claims contributed to $342,000 of additional cost of revenues. These items were partially offset by the increase in revenues from milestone payments and license fees.
Selling, General and Administrative Expenses:
Selling, general and administrative expenses were $9,630,000 for the year ended June 30, 2007, compared to $7,156,000 for the year ended June 30, 2006, an increase of $2,474,000 or 35%. The increase is primarily due to salaries and travel costs for additional sales and marketing personnel. Also contributing to the increase were recruiting expenses for executive officers and sales and marketing personnel. Significant progress was made during the year in staffing the organization for future growth. Specifically, a new General Manager of Operations and a Vice President of Sales and Marketing were hired. The Company also initiated searches for new board members and a new CEO. The appointment by the Board of Directors of a new CEO and the transition of the incumbent CEO to Chief Technology Architect was announced in July 2007.

Research and Development Expenses:
Research and development expenses for the year ended June 30, 2007 were $4,108,000 compared to $4,157,000 for fiscal 2006, a decrease of $49,000 or 1%. R&D expenses have remained consistent as the reduction in the costs associated with the design and development services for the AXP Platform, $246,000, which was launched during fiscal 2006 and decrease in clinical trial costs related to the completed CryoSeal FS human clinical trial, $551,000, have been offset by operating supplies for research projects and recruiting costs and salaries for additional R&D personnel.
Management believes that product development and refinement are essential to maintaining the Company’s market position. Therefore, the Company considers these costs as continuing costs of doing business. No assurances can be given that the products or markets recently developed or under development will be successful.
(c) Liquidity and Capital Resources
At June 30, 2008, the Company had a cash and short-term investments balance of $25,287,000 and working capital of $29,986,000. This compares to a cash and short-term investments balance of $33,379,000 and working capital of $37,759,000 at June 30, 2007. The cash was used to fund operations and other cash needs of the Company. In addition to product revenues, the Company has primarily financed operations through the private and public placement of equity securities and has raised approximately $108 million, net of expenses, through common and preferred stock financings and option and warrant exercises.
Net cash used in operating activities for the year ended June 30, 2008 was $8,451,000, primarily due to the net loss of $9,181,000 which included the accretion of discount on short-term investments of $918,000, offset by depreciation and stock based compensation expense of $543,000 and $1,921,000, respectively. Accounts receivable utilized $2,750,000 of cash as a result of the Company’s increased revenues at the end of fiscal 2008 as compared to the prior year. Accounts payable generated $2,112,000 of cash primarily as a result of purchasing disposable products to support the increase in revenues. Investing activities generated $7,150,000 of cash primarily due to short-term investments maturing. Financing activities used $45,000 of cash primarily due to the repurchase of common stock to satisfy income tax withholding obligations.
We believe that our currently available cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments, and cash generated from operations will be sufficient to satisfy our operating and working capital requirements for at least the next twelve months. However, if we experience significant growth in the future, we may be required to raise additional cash through the issuance of new debt or additional equity.
The Company generally does not require extensive capital equipment to produce or sell its current products. In fiscal 2006, the Company spent $565,000 for software, computers and laboratory equipment. In fiscal 2007, the Company spent $621,000 primarily for office furniture for the new leased facility, manufacturing equipment for the AXP product line and laboratory equipment. In fiscal 2008, the Company spent $514,000 for development of the Company’s website, laboratory equipment and manufacturing equipment.
The Company has a contract with an OEM vendor to purchase 190,000 units or $8.7 million of inventory through fiscal 2009. As of June 30, 2008, the Company had purchased 21,435 units or $1.1 million of inventory under the contract. The parties are not currently operating under the terms of the contract, but continue to work together on an invoice basis. The contract may be modified in the future.

During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2008, revenues from one significant customer, GEHC totaled $13,310,000 or 61% of net revenues. During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2007, revenues from one significant customer, GEHC, totaled $7,502,000 or 45% of net revenues. During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2006, revenues from three significant customers totaled $6,386,000 or 53% of net revenues.
At June 30, 2008, the Company had two customers that individually accounted for 60% and 14% of accounts receivable. At June 30, 2007, the Company had two customers that individually accounted for 30% and 14% of accounts receivable.
The Company manages the concentration of credit risk with these customers through a variety of methods including, letters of credit with financial institutions, pre-shipment deposits, credit reference checks and credit limits. Although management believes that these customers are sound and creditworthy, a severe adverse impact on their business operations could have a corresponding material effect on their ability to pay timely and therefore on our net revenues, cash flows and financial condition.
Off Balance Sheet Arrangements:
As of June 30, 2008, the Company had no off-balance sheet arrangements.
Contractual Obligations:
As of June 30, 2008, the Company had the following contractual obligations and commercial commitments:
                                         
    Payments Due by Period  
            Less than                     After 5  
Contractual Obligations
  Total     1 year     1-3 years     4-5 years     years  
Capital Lease Obligations
  $ 25,000     $ 16,000     $ 9,000              
Operating Leases
    2,205,000       582,000       1,310,000     $ 313,000        
             
Total Contractual Cash Obligations
  $ 2,230,000     $ 598,000     $ 1,319,000     $ 313,000          
             
ITEM 7A. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK
All sales, domestic and foreign, are made in U.S. dollars and therefore currency fluctuations are believed to have no impact on the Company’s net revenues. The Company has no material long-term investments or debt, other than a capital lease, and therefore is not subject to interest rate risk. Management does not believe that inflation has had or will have a significant impact on the Company’s results of operations. The Company is not exposed to any market risk involving activities in derivative financial instruments, other financial instruments or derivative commodity instruments.

Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting
The Company’s management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act. Under the supervision and with the participation of the Company’s management, including the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, the Company conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of its internal control over financial reporting based on criteria established in the framework in Internal Control – Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission. Based on this evaluation, the Company’s management concluded that its internal control over financial reporting was effective as of June 30, 2008.
Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate. All internal control systems, no matter how well designed, have inherent limitations. Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and presentation.
The Company’s independent registered public accounting firm has issued an attestation report on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2008, which appears on the following page of this Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
The Board of Directors and Stockholders of ThermoGenesis Corp.
We have audited ThermoGenesis Corp’s internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2008, based on criteria established in Internal Control—Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (the COSO criteria). ThermoGenesis Corp’s management is responsible for maintaining effective internal control over financial reporting, and for its assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting included in the accompanying Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the company’s internal control over financial reporting based on our audit.
We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether effective internal control over financial reporting was maintained in all material respects. Our audit included obtaining an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, assessing the risk that a material weakness exists, testing and evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internal control based on the assessed risk, and performing such other procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.
A company’s internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. A company’s internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company; (2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of the company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.
Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
In our opinion, ThermoGenesis Corp. maintained, in all material respects, effective internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2008, based on the COSO criteria.
We also have audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States), the consolidated balance sheets of ThermoGenesis Corp. as of June 30, 2008 and 2007, and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended June 30, 2008 of ThermoGenesis Corp. Our audits also included the financial statement schedule listed in the Index of Item 15.(a)(2). Our report dated September 9, 2008 expressed an unqualified opinion thereon.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
The Board of Directors and Stockholders of ThermoGenesis Corp.

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements and schedule based on our audits.
We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of ThermoGenesis Corp. at June 30, 2008 and 2007, and the consolidated results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended June 30, 2008, in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. Also, in our opinion, the related financial statement schedule, when considered in relation to the basic financial statements taken as a whole, presents fairly in all material respects the information set forth therein.

1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Organization and Basis of Presentation
The Company was incorporated in Delaware in July 1986. The Company designs, manufactures and markets automated and semi-automated devices and single-use processing disposables that enable hospitals and blood banks to manufacture a therapeutic dose of stem cells, wound healing proteins or growth factors from a single unit of cord blood or the patient’s own blood in less than one hour. Initially, the Company developed medical devices for ultra rapid freezing and thawing of blood components, which the Company manufactures and distributes to blood banks and hospitals.
In February 2008, the Company announced the formation of a wholly-owned subsidiary, Vantus Veterinary Stem Cell Laboratories (Vantus). Vantus involves a formal relationship with the Center of Equine Health and Stem Cell Regenerative medicine Group at the University of California, Davis, School of Veterinary Medicine. Its initial focus will be the banking (harvesting processing and preservation) of equine stem cells for use in treatment of orthopedic injuries in the performance equine market.
Principles of Consolidation
The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the parent company, ThermoGenesis, and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Vantus. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
Use of Estimates
Preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates.
Revenue Recognition
The Company recognizes revenue including multiple element arrangements, in accordance with the provisions of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (“SEC”) Staff Accounting Bulletin (“SAB”) No. 104, Revenue Recognition and the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) Emerging Issues Task Force (“EITF”) 00-21, Revenue Agreements with Multiple Deliverables. Revenues from the sale of the Company’s products are recognized when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred (or services have been rendered), the price is fixed or determinable, and collectibility is reasonably assured. The Company generally ships products F.O.B. shipping point. There is no conditional evaluation on any product sold and recognized as revenue. All foreign sales are denominated in U.S. dollars. Amounts billed in excess of revenue recognized are recorded as deferred revenue on the balance sheet.
The Company’s foreign sales are generally through distributors. There is no right of return provided for distributors. For sales of products made to distributors, the Company considers a number of factors in determining whether revenue is recognized upon transfer of title to the distributor, or when payment is received. These factors include, but are not limited to, whether the payment terms offered to the distributor are considered to be non-standard, the distributor history of adhering to the terms of its contractual arrangements with the Company, the level of inventories maintained by the distributor, whether the Company has a pattern of granting concessions for the benefit of the distributor, and whether there are other conditions that may indicate that the sale to the distributor is not substantive. The Company currently recognizes revenue primarily on the sell-in method with its distributors.

1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (Continued)
Revenue Recognition (Continued)
Revenue arrangements with multiple elements are divided into separate units of accounting if certain criteria are met, including whether the delivered item has value to the customer on a stand-alone basis and whether there is objective and reliable evidence of the fair value of the undelivered items. Revenue is recognized as specific elements indicated in sales contracts are executed. If an element is essential to the functionality of an arrangement, the entire arrangement’s revenue is deferred until that essential element is delivered. The fair value of each undelivered element that is not essential to the functionality of the system is deferred until performance or delivery occurs. The fair value of an undelivered element is based on vendor specific objective evidence or third party evidence of fair value as appropriate. Costs associated with inconsequential or perfunctory elements in multiple element arrangements are accrued at the time of revenue recognition. The Company accounts for training and installation as a separate element of a multiple element arrangement. The Company therefore recognizes the fair value of training and installation services upon their completion when the Company is obligated to perform such services.
Service revenue generated from contracts for providing maintenance of equipment is amortized over the life of the agreement. All other service revenue is recognized at the time the service is completed.
Milestone payments the Company receives under research and development arrangements are recognized as revenue upon achievement of the milestone events, which represent the culmination of the earnings process, and when collectibility is reasonably assured. Milestone payments are triggered by the results of the Company’s development efforts. Accordingly, the milestone payments are substantially at risk at the inception of the contract, and the amounts of the payments assigned thereto are commensurate with the milestone achieved. Upon the achievement of a milestone event, which may include acceptance by the counterparty, the Company has no future performance obligations related to that milestone as the milestone payments received by the Company are nonrefundable.
For licensing agreements pursuant to which the Company receives up-front licensing fees for products or technologies that will be provided by the Company over the term of the arrangements, the Company defers the up-front fees and recognizes the fees as revenue on a straight-line method over the term of the respective license. For license agreements that require no continuing performance on the Company’s part, license fee revenue is recognized immediately upon grant of the license.
Shipping and handling fees billed to customers are included in product and other revenues, while the related costs are included in cost of product and other revenues.
Cash, Cash Equivalents and Short Term Investments
The Company considers all highly liquid investments with a maturity of three months or less at the time of purchase to be cash equivalents. Short term investments are comprised of marketable debt securities which are classified as held-to-maturity and have maturities greater than 90 days, but not exceeding one year.

1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (Continued)
Cash, Cash Equivalents and Short Term Investments (Continued)
Management determines the appropriate classification of debt securities at the time of purchase and reevaluates such designation as of each balance sheet date. Debt securities are classified as held-to-maturity when the Company has the positive intent and ability to hold the securities to maturity. Held-to-maturity securities are stated at acquisition cost, adjusted for amortization of premiums and accretion of discounts to maturity computed under the effective interest method. Such amortization and accretion is included in interest income. The cost of securities sold is based on the specific identification method. The fair value of debt securities are determined by quoted market prices.
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
The carrying values of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, approximate fair value due to their short duration. The fair value of short term investments is disclosed in Note 2.
Accounts Receivable and Allowance for Doubtful Accounts
The Company’s receivables are recorded when billed and represent claims against third parties that will be settled in cash. The carrying value of the Company’s receivables, net of the allowance for doubtful accounts represents their estimated net realizable value. The Company estimates its allowance for doubtful accounts based on historical collection trends, age of outstanding receivables and existing economic conditions. If events or changes in circumstances indicate that a specific receivable balance may be impaired, further consideration is given to the collectibility of those balances and the allowance is adjusted accordingly. A customer’s receivable balance is considered past-due based on its contractual terms. Past-due receivable balances are written-off when the Company’s internal collection efforts have been unsuccessful in collecting the amount due.
Inventories
Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market and include the cost of material, labor and manufacturing overhead. Cost is determined on the first-in, first-out basis.
Equipment
Equipment is recorded at cost. Repairs and maintenance costs are expensed as incurred. Depreciation for office, computer, machinery and equipment is computed under the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives. Leasehold improvements are depreciated under the straight line method over their estimated useful lives or the remaining lease period, whichever is shorter.
Warranty
The Company provides for the estimated cost of product warranties at the time revenue is recognized. While the Company engages in extensive product quality programs and processes, including actively monitoring and evaluating the quality of its component suppliers, the Company’s warranty obligation is affected by product failure rates, material usage and service delivery costs incurred in correcting a product failure. Should actual product failure rates, material usage or service delivery costs differ from the Company’s estimates, revisions to the estimated warranty liability could have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial position, cash flows or results of operations.

Stock Based Compensation
The Company has four stock-based compensation plans, which are described more fully in Note 7.
The Company accounts for stock-based compensation arrangements in accordance with FASB Statement No. 123(R) “Share-Based Payment,” which requires the measurement and recording of compensation expense using a fair-value method.
Valuation and amortization method — The Company estimates the fair value of stock options granted using the Black-Scholes-Merton option-pricing formula. This fair value is then amortized on a straight-line basis over the requisite service periods of the awards, which is generally the vesting period.
Expected Term — For options which the Company has limited available data, the expected term of the option is based on the simplified method as allowed by SAB 107 and SAB 110. This simplified method averages an award’s vesting term and its contractual term. For all other options, the Company’s expected term represents the period that the Company’s stock-based awards are expected to be outstanding and was determined based on historical experience of similar awards, giving consideration to the contractual terms of the stock-based awards, vesting schedules and expectations of future employee behavior.
Expected Volatility — The Company uses the trading history of its common stock in determining an estimated volatility factor when using the Black-Scholes-Merton option-pricing formula to determine the fair value of options granted.
Expected Dividend — The Company has not declared dividends. Therefore, the Company uses a zero value for the expected dividend value factor when using the Black-Scholes-Merton option-pricing formula to determine the fair value of options granted.
Risk-Free Interest Rate — The Company bases the risk-free interest rate used in the Black-Scholes-Merton valuation method on the implied yield currently available on U.S. Treasury zero-coupon issues with the same or substantially equivalent remaining term.
Estimated Forfeitures — When estimating forfeitures, the Company considers voluntary and involuntary termination behavior as well as analysis of actual option forfeitures.
The fair value of the Company’s stock options granted to employees for the years ended June 30, 2008, 2007 and 2006 was estimated using the following weighted-average assumptions:
                         
    2008   2007   2006
Expected life (years)
    3.1       3.5       3.8  
Risk-free interest rate
    3.9 %     4.7 %     4.6 %
Expected volatility
    57 %     54 %     62 %
Dividend yield
    0 %     0 %     0 %
The weighted average grant date fair value of options granted during the years ended June 30, 2008, 2007 and 2006 was $0.82, $1.66 and $2.22, respectively.

Credit Risk
The Company manufactures and sells thermodynamic devices principally to the blood component processing industry and performs ongoing evaluations of the credit worthiness of its customers. The Company believes that adequate provisions for uncollectible accounts have been made in the accompanying consolidated financial statements.
Segment Reporting
The Company operates in a single segment providing medical devices and disposables to hospitals and blood banks throughout the world which utilize the equipment to process blood components.
Income Taxes
Effective July 1, 2007, we adopted the provisions of Financial Accounting Standards Board Interpretation No. 48, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes” (FIN 48), an interpretation of FASB Statement No. 109 (SFAS 109). There was no impact on our financial statements upon adoption. Because of our historical significant net operating losses, we have not been subject to income tax since inception. The tax years 1993-2008 remain open to examination by the major taxing jurisdictions to which we are subject. The Company’s policy is to recognize interest and penalties related to the underpayment of income taxes as a component of income tax expense. To date, there have been no interest or penalties charged to the Company in relation to the underpayment of income taxes. There were no unrecognized tax benefits during all the periods presented.
The Company accounts for income taxes using the liability method. Under this method, deferred tax assets are based on differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amounts used for income tax purposes and are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that are expected to be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse. These deferred tax assets include net operating loss carryforwards, research credits and deferred revenue. The net deferred tax asset has been fully offset by a valuation allowance because of our history of losses. Utilization of operating losses and credits may be subject to annual limitation due to ownership change provisions of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 and similar state provisions. The annual limitation may result in the expiration of net operating losses and credits before utilization.
Net Loss per Share
Net loss per share is computed by dividing the net loss to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. The calculation of the basic and diluted earnings per share is the same for all periods presented, as the effect of the potential common stock equivalents is anti-dilutive due to the Company’s net loss position for all periods presented. Anti-dilutive securities, which consist of stock options, warrants and common stock restricted awards, that were not included in diluted net loss per common share, were 3,014,437, 2,995,417 and 2,963,410 as of June 30, 2008, 2007 and 2006, respectively.
Reclassifications
Certain amounts in the prior year’s financial statements have been reclassified to conform with the 2008 presentation.

New Accounting Pronouncements
In September 2006, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standard (“SFAS”) No. 157, “Fair Value Measurements” (SFAS No. 157). SFAS No. 157 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value under GAAP and expands disclosure about fair value measurements. SFAS No. 157 applies under other accounting standards that require or permit fair value measurements. Accordingly, SFAS No. 157 does not require any new fair value measurement. SFAS No. 157 is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the provisions of SFAS No. 157 on its consolidated financial statements.
In February 2007, the FASB issued SFAS No. 159, “The Fair Value Option for Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities” (SFAS No. 159). SFAS No. 159 allows entities to voluntarily choose to measure many financial assets and financial liabilities at fair value. SFAS No. 159 is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007. The Company is currently evaluating the impact, if any, the adoption of SFAS No. 159 will have on its consolidated financial statements.
In December 2007, the FASB ratified EITF Issue No. 07-1, “Accounting for Collaborative Arrangements” (EITF 07-1). EITF 07-1 defines collaborative arrangements and establishes reporting requirements for transactions between participants in a collaborative arrangement and between participants in the arrangement and third parties. EITF 07-1 also establishes the appropriate income statement presentation and classification for joint operating activities and payments between participants, as well as the sufficiency of the disclosures related to these arrangements. EITF 07-1 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2008. EITF 07-1 shall be applied retrospectively to all prior periods presented for all collaborative arrangements existing as of the effective date. The Company is currently assessing the potential impact, if any, the adoption of EITF 07-1 may have on its consolidated financial statements.
In December 2007, the FASB issued SFAS No. 141R, “Business Combinations” (SFAS No. 141R) which replaces SFAS No. 141. The statement retains the purchase method of accounting for acquisitions, but requires a number of changes, including changes in the way assets and liabilities are recognized in the purchase accounting. It also changes the recognition of assets acquired and liabilities assumed arising from contingencies, requires the capitalization of in-process research and development at fair value and requires the expensing of acquisition-related costs as incurred. SFAS No. 141(R) is effective in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2008. The Company has not determined the effect, if any, the adoption of this statement will have on the Company’s consolidated financial position or results of operations.

Warranty
The Company offers a one-year warranty on all of its products. In addition, the Company’s one-year warranty for the BioArchive System includes labor and travel. The Company periodically assesses the adequacy of its recorded warranty liabilities and adjusts the amounts as necessary.

As a result of various quality issues experienced by high usage customers of the AXPTM AutoXpress™ Platform (AXP) devices and docking stations, the Company made revisions to its estimated warranty liability for the year ended June 30, 2008. The Company recorded a change in estimate, which increased the Company’s cost of product and other revenues and net loss (no net loss per share impact) by $444.

Import/Export Bonds
The Company imports and exports products and components as a routine part of its business, and must comply with the rules and regulations of both the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the US Department of Homeland Security Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (CBP). With products and components that require FDA approval, but prior to the receipt of such approval, the Company enters the components into the United States under certain temporary import provisions and must provide documentation of re-export of such product or its destruction within specified time periods. If components or products have not been exported or destroyed within the period provided for by the regulations, the Port Director may make a demand in writing under the bond for the payment of defined damages. The Company has in the past used a continuous import bond in the face amount of $50 for these activities, which would provide payment of any damages up to the face amount of the bond. The Company was notified by CBP at the Port of San Francisco that it is in breach of the temporary import agreement for components sold within the US to our strategic partners who then export such components for use outside the United States. The matter is currently under review. However, the Company may be exposed to damages up to a maximum of the face amount of our continuous import bond for each year the non-compliant imports occurred, and the bond was in effect. For the quarter ended December 31, 2007, the Company has recorded an estimated loss contingency in the amount of $100, which is based on the face amounts of the bond described above. There have been no adjustments to the accrual for the six months ended June 30, 2008. The estimated loss contingency is included in Selling, General & Administrative expenses in the consolidated statements of operations. The Company anticipates settling this matter in fiscal 2009.
Product Recalls
As part of its normal operations, the Company may conduct recalls of products or parts, some of which may require in-field service or part replacements. Recalls may, depending on the circumstances, interrupt a customers business, or require a customer to incur additional expenses. Further, the Company has enlisted certain customers to assist and facilitate the recalls and field actions, and has undertaken to compensate the customers for the efforts and disruption to business, even through formal claims are not made. For the year ended June 30, 2008, the Company has accrued $185 for payments that may be paid in connection with recalls the Company had during the fiscal year. The Company anticipates settling this matter in fiscal 2009.

Common Stock Restricted Awards
On April 26, 2007, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer (“incumbent CEO”) was granted 500,000 shares of restricted common stock with three year vesting. The grant has a value of $1,700 based on the fair market value of the Company’s stock on the grant date. The vesting is subject to acceleration upon certain conditions: (1) entry into the Employment Agreement for a term of three years, (2) Company’s engagement of a new Chief Executive Officer (“new CEO”) and confirmation by the Board of Directors and (3) development and Board approval of a transition plan for the new CEO and transition of the incumbent CEO to the position of Chief Technology Architect (“CTA”). However, in accordance with the 2006 Plan, performance based stock option awards must have a minimum vesting period of at least one year. The performance conditions were all satisfied by May 2008, therefore, the compensation expense of $1,700 was amortized over one year of which $1,417 and $283 has been included in the accompanying consolidated statement of operations in fiscal 2008 and 2007, respectively. In connection with the vesting of the restricted stock, the election was made by the CTA to satisfy the applicable income tax withholding obligation by a net share settlement, pursuant to which the Company withheld 178,215 shares and used the deemed proceeds from those shares to pay the income tax withholding. The net share settlement is deemed to be a repurchase by the Company of its common stock.
During fiscal 2007, the Company’s Compensation Committee granted 10,000 shares of restricted common stock to an officer, one half vesting immediately and one half on the first anniversary of the grant date. The shares had a fair market value of $3.40 per share on the date of grant.
On August 9, 2004, the Company’s Compensation Committee approved the grant of 50,914 shares of restricted common stock to selected members of management and key employees, excluding its executive officers, which had a fair market value of $3.58 per share on the date of grant. These common stock restricted awards vest in three equal installments, on the date of grant and the first and second anniversary of the grant date. The Company recorded deferred stock compensation of $182 based on the closing market price of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant. One third vested immediately on the grant date and the remaining value will be amortized on a straight-line basis over the remaining two year service period. In accordance with FAS 123(R), on July 1, 2005 the Company reversed the deferred stock compensation balance of $57 against additional paid-in-capital.
The following is a summary of restricted stock activity during the years ended June 30, 2007 and 2008:

THERMOGENESIS CORP.
EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT
for
Matthew T. Plavan
     THERMOGENESIS CORP. (“Employer”) and Matthew T. Plavan (“Employee”), agree as follows:
1. Employment. Employer employs Employee and Employee accepts employment with Employer on the terms and conditions set forth in this Employment Agreement (“Agreement”).
2. Position; Scope of Employment. Employee shall have the position of Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for Employer, and shall have the duties and authority set forth below, and as detailed on the position description attached as Exhibit “A”, which duties and authority may be modified from time to time by Employer. As CFO, Employee shall report directly to Employer’s Chief Executive Officer.
     2.1. Entire Time and Effort. Employee shall devote Employee’s full working time, attention, abilities, skill, labor and efforts to the performance of his employment. Employee shall not, directly or indirectly, alone or as a member of a partnership or other organizational entity, or as an officer of any corporation (other than any which are owned by or affiliated with Employer) (i) be substantially engaged in or concerned with any other commercial duties or pursuits, (ii) engage in any other business activity that will interfere with the performance of Employee’s duties under this Agreement, except with the prior written consent of Employer, or (iii) join the board of directors of any other corporation; provided, however, that Employee may join the board of directors of no more than two unaffiliated corporations so long as such corporations are not competitive to the current or future operations of Employer and those corporations offer some synergistic prospects or other support for Employer’s goals.
     2.2. Rules and Regulations. Employee agrees to observe and comply with Employer’s rules and regulations as provided by Employer and as may be amended from time to time by Employer and will carry out and perform faithfully such orders, directions and policies of Employer. To the extent any provision of this Agreement is contrary to an Employer rule or regulation, as such may be amended from time to time, the terms of this Agreement shall control.
     2.3. Limitations Upon Authority to Bind Employer. Employee shall not engage in any of the following actions on behalf of Employer without the prior approval of Employer: (i) borrow or obtain credit in any amount or execute any guaranty, except for items purchased from vendors in the ordinary course of Employer’s operations; (ii) expend funds for capital equipment in excess of expenditures expressly budgeted by Employer, if applicable, or in the event not budgeted, not to exceed the amounts set forth in subparagraph (iii); (iii) sell or transfer capital assets exceeding Ten thousand Dollars ($10,000) in market value in any single transaction or exceeding Fifty Thousand Dollars ($50,000) in the aggregate during any one fiscal

1


 

year; (iv) execute any lease for real or personal property; or (v) exercise any authority or control over the management of any employee welfare or pension benefit plan maintained by Employer or over the disposition of the assets of any such plan.
3. Term. The term of this Agreement shall be for a period of three (3) years which shall commence on May 31, 2008 and end on May 30, 2011; unless terminated earlier as provided below in Section 5.
4. Compensation. Employer shall pay to or provide compensation to Employee as set forth in this Section 4. All compensation of every description shall be subject to the customary withholding tax and other employment taxes as required with respect to compensation paid to an employee.
     4.1. Base Salary. Employer shall pay Employee a base salary of $275,000 per year commencing on May 31, 2008 (“Base Salary”). Employee’s Base Salary shall be payable in accordance with Employer’s regular pay schedule, but not less frequently than twice per month.
     4.2. Annual Review. On the date of Employer’s annual meeting of stockholders and on each subsequent annual meeting of stockholders during the term of this Agreement, or at such other time as Employer may establish in its discretion, Employer shall review the previous year’s performance of Employee for the purpose of making reasonable increases to Employee’s Base Salary; provided that Employer shall not be required to increase Employee’s Base Salary, but may do so at its discretion.
     4.3. Cash/Stock Bonuses. In addition to the Base Salary provided for in sections 4.1 and 4.2, Employee is eligible to receive discretionary bonuses based on Employer performance and Employee’s attainment of objectives periodically established by Employer. Such discretionary bonuses may be paid in cash, through issuance of stock or grant of stock options, or any combination thereof, subject to Board discretion. Annual bonuses that may be awarded to Employee shall not exceed thirty-five percent (35%) of Employee’s Base Salary then in effect in any given year.
     4.4. Stock Option Grants. In addition to Base Salary provided for in Sections 4.1 and 4.2, Employee is eligible to receive an award of stock options as may be determined from time to time by Employer’s Compensation Committee which consists of disinterested directors who administer Employer’s Amended 1994 Stock Option Plan, Amended 1998 Employee Equity Incentive Plan and 2006 Employee Equity Incentive Plan. At the inception of this Agreement, and subject to Plan requirements, Employee shall be granted an initial four (4)-year option to acquire 100,000 shares of the Employer’s common stock, with three (3)-year vesting. Incident to the provisions of Section 4.3., Employer’s Compensation Committee will establish an incentive program whereby Employee may earn and be granted additional options.
     4.6. Vacation and Sick Leave. Employee shall be entitled to accrue up to three (3) weeks vacation annually; provided, however, that vacation time may not accrue beyond two weeks of accrued and unused time. Vacation pay shall not accrue beyond two (2) weeks at any

2


 

given time. Employee shall be entitled to sick leave in accordance with Employer’s sick leave policy, as amended from time to time. At the end of each calendar year, subject to the limit on two weeks accrued and unused vacation, all such unused and accrued vacation time shall be paid in cash.
     4.7. Other Fringe Benefits. Employee shall participate in all of Employer’s fringe benefit programs in substantially the same manner and to substantially the same extent as other similar employees of Employer, excluding only those benefits expressly modified by the terms hereof.
     4.8. Expenses. Employee shall be reimbursed for his reasonable business expenses; subject to the presentation of evidence of such expenses in accordance with established policies adopted by Employer from time to time.
     4.9. Compensation From Other Sources. Any proceeds that Employee shall receive by virtue of qualifying for disability insurance, disability benefits, or health or accident insurance shall belong to Employee. Employee shall not be paid Base Salary in any period in which he receives benefits as determined and paid under Employer’s long-term disability policy. Benefits paid to Employee under Employer’s short-term disability policy shall reduce, by the same amount, Base Salary payable to Employee for such period.
5. Early Termination. Employee’s employment with Employer may be terminated prior to the expiration of the term of this Agreement, upon any of the following events: (i) the mutual agreement of Employer and Employee in writing; (ii) the disability of Employee, which shall, for the purposes of this Agreement, mean Employee’s inability, for a period exceeding three (3) months as determined by a qualified physician, and which qualifies Employee for benefits under Employer’s long-term disability policy, to perform in the usual manner the material duties usually and customarily pertaining to Employee’s long-term employment; (iii) Employee’s death; (iv) notice of termination by Employer for cause; (v) Employer’s cessation of business; (vi) written notice of termination by Employer without cause upon fourteen (14) days’ notice, subject to the provisions for compensation upon early termination in Section 5.3(b); (vii) debarment by any federal agency that would limit or prohibit Employee from serving in his capacity for Employer under this Agreement, or (viii) upon a Change in Control (as defined below) of Employer (as defined in and under the circumstances described in Section 5.4).
     5.1. Definition of Cause. For purposes of this Agreement, any of the following shall constitute cause: (i) willful or habitual breach of Employee’s duties; (ii) fraud or intentional material misrepresentation by Employee to Employer or any others; (iii) theft or conversion by Employee; (iv) unauthorized disclosure or other use of Employer’s trade secrets, customer lists or confidential information; (v) habitual misuse of alcohol or any nonprescribed drug or intoxicant; (vi) debarment by any federal agency that would limit or prohibit Employee from serving in his capacity for Employer under this Agreement, or (vii) willful violation of any other standards of conduct as set forth in Employer’s employee manual.
     5.2. Damages. If Employer terminates Employee for cause, Employer shall be entitled to damages and all other remedies to which Employer may otherwise be entitled.

     5.3. Compensation Upon Early Termination.
  (a)   If Employee resigns during the term of this Agreement (without mutual consent of Employer), or if this Agreement is terminated by Employer for cause, Employee shall be entitled to all accrued but unpaid Base Salary and vacation pay accrued through the date of delivery of the notice of termination, and all non-vested options shall be deemed canceled as of that date.
 
  (b)   If Employee is terminated without cause, as defined in subsection (i) through (vii) of Section 5 above, Employer shall pay to Employee as liquidated damages and in lieu of any and all other claims which Employee may have against Employer twelve (12) months of Employee’s salary including amounts for medical benefits coverage under COBRA commensurate with Employee’s coverage as of the date of termination. If Employee’s contract is not renewed at the end of the term of this contract, Employee will receive aforementioned monthly severance for up to twelve months or until employed elsewhere, which ever comes first. Employer’s payment pursuant to this subparagraph shall fully and completely discharge any and all obligations of Employer to Employee arising out of or related to this Agreement and shall constitute liquidated damages in lieu of any and all claims which Employee may have against Employer not including any obligation under the workers’ compensation laws including Employer’s liability provisions.
                 
Initials:
  Employee   /s/ MTP   Employer   /s/ WRO
 
               
  (c)   If Employee’s employment is terminated as a result of death or total disability, Employee shall be entitled to accrued but unpaid Base Salary to date of termination. The date of termination shall be deemed the date of death or, in the event of disability, the date Employee qualified for total disability payments under Employer’s long-term disability plan.
 
  (d)   If Employee’s employment is terminated or constructively terminated as a result of a Change in Control of Employer, Employee shall be entitled to a lump-sum payment equal to three times Employee’s Base Salary at the time. A “Change in Control” shall mean an event involving one transaction or a related series of transactions in which one of the following occurs: (i) Employer issues securities equal to 33% or more of Employer’s issued and outstanding voting securities, determined as a single class, to any individual, firm, partnership or other entity, including a “group” within the meaning of Section 13(d)(3) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934; (ii) Employer issues securities equal to 33% or more of the issued and outstanding common stock of Employer in connection with a merger, consolidation or other business combination; (iii) Employer is acquired in a merger or other business combination transaction in which Employer is not the surviving company; or (iv) all or substantially all of Employer’s assets are sold or transferred.

Employee during the course of his duties will be handling financial, accounting, statistical, marketing and personnel information of customers of Employer. All such information is confidential and shall not be disclosed, directly or indirectly, or used by Employee in any way, either during the term of this Agreement or at any time thereafter except as required in the course of Employee’s employment with Employer.
7. Unfair Competition. During the term of this Agreement, Employee shall not, directly or indirectly, whether as a partner, employee, creditor, stockholder, or otherwise, promote, participate, or engage in any activity or other business which is competitive in any way with Employer’s business. The obligation of Employee not to compete with Employer shall not prohibit Employee from owning or purchasing any corporate securities that are regularly traded on a recognized stock exchange or on over-the-counter market. In order to protect the trade secrets of Employer, after the term, or upon earlier termination of this Agreement, Employee shall not, directly or indirectly, either as an employee, employer, consultants, agent, principal, partner, stockholder, corporate officer, director, or any other individual or representative capacity, engage or participate in any business that is in direct competition with the business of Employer for a period of one (1) year from the date of the expiration of this Agreement in the areas related to blood processing equipment or procedures.
8. Trade Secrets. Employee shall not disclose to any others, or take or use for Employee’s own purposes or purposes of any others, during the term of this Agreement or at any time thereafter, any of Employer’s trade secrets, including without limitation, confidential information, customer lists, computer programs or computer software of Employer. Employee agrees that these restrictions shall also apply to (i) trade secrets belonging to third parties in Employer’s possession and (ii) trade secrets conceived, originated, discovered or developed by Employee during the term of this Agreement. Information of Employer shall not be considered a trade secret if it is lawfully known outside of Employer by anyone who does not have a duty to keep such information confidential.
     8.1 Inventions; Ownership Rights.
