Dynacq Healthcare, Inc. Announces Preliminary Unaudited Financial Results for the Fiscal Quarter Ended May 31, 2005

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 6, 2005--Dynacq Healthcare, Inc. (Nasdaq SmallCap:DYII - News; "Dynacq") today announced preliminary unaudited financial results for the third fiscal quarter and the nine-month period ended May 31, 2005. For the fiscal quarter ended May 31, 2005, net patient revenue increased 7% to $13.8 million as compared to the same quarter in fiscal 2004. The loss from operations decreased 44% to $1.1 million from $1.9 million during the three-month period ended May 31, 2005, resulting in a net loss for the quarter of $0.9 million, as compared to a net loss of $1.3 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2004.

Net patient revenue decreased 11% from $47.9 million for the nine months ended May 31, 2004 to $42.9 million for the same period in 2005. Total costs and expenses increased $1.5 million to $47.1 million for the nine months ended May 31, 2005 from the same period in fiscal 2004. For the nine-month period ended May 31, 2005, the company had a net loss of $2.9 million, as compared to net income of $1.1 million for the same period during fiscal 2004. This net loss is primarily a result of lower net patient revenue, which is due to the decrease in the number of surgical cases by 16% to 2,922 during the nine-month period ended May 31, 2005 as compared to 3,498 during the same period in 2004, and non-recurring expenses of $1.5 million related to a lawsuit settlement, a non-cash pretax compensation expense and bankruptcy fees and expenses related to the Baton Rouge Facility, all in the second fiscal quarter 2005.

Dynacq is unable to predict the level of future revenues, and as a result, may incur losses in the future.
