BEDFORD, Mass., April 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hologic, Inc. (Hologic or the Company) (NASDAQ: HOLX), a leading developer, manufacturer and supplier of premium diagnostic products, medical imaging systems and surgical products, with an emphasis on serving the healthcare needs of women, today announced its results for the second fiscal quarter ended March 29, 2014.

Second Quarter Financial Highlights and Recent Developments:

  • Revenues increased 2.0% to $625.0 million (prior year revenues included $10.6 million from Lifecodes, which the Company sold in March 2013).
    • Breast Health revenues increased 8.5%.
  • Non-GAAP net income increased 9.9% to $103.1 million, or $0.37 per diluted share.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 5.0% to $222.4 million.
  • Net loss improved to $16.8 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, calculated in accordance with GAAP.
  • Refinanced Term Loan B resulting in an interest rate reduction of 50 basis points.
  • Appointed Eric Compton as Chief Operating Officer and Claus Egstrand as Senior Vice President and General Manager, International.
  • Grifols, Hologic's blood screening collaboration partner, was selected as a partner by the Japanese Red Cross in screening the country's 5.3 million annual blood donations using the Panther system and associated assays.
  • Acceptance of the American Medical Association CPT application for Category I Codes establishing a pathway for screening and diagnostic breast tomosynthesis reimbursement beginning January 1, 2015.
  • Publication of six new peer-reviewed studies that further validate the benefits of Hologic's 3D mammography in breast cancer screening.

The Company includes non-GAAP financial measures in this press release. Definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures, and the reconciliations to the Company's comparable GAAP financial measures (calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles) for the periods presented, are included in this press release.

Second Quarter Fiscal 2014 Operating Results Overview:

Second quarter fiscal 2014 revenues increased 2.0% to $625.0 million from $612.7 million in the prior year (second quarter fiscal 2013 revenues included $10.6 million from Lifecodes, which the Company sold in March 2013). During the same period, revenues increased 1.0% from non-GAAP revenues of $619.1 million in the prior year. Non-GAAP revenues in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 reflect the addition of $6.4 million that was eliminated for GAAP purposes as a result of a purchase accounting adjustment.

Fluctuation in foreign currency exchange rates added 40 basis points to revenues compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2013.

Second quarter fiscal 2014 net loss improved to $16.8 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $51.1 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, for the same period in the prior year. Second quarter fiscal 2014 non-GAAP net income was $103.1 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, an increase of 9.9% and 7.9%, respectively, compared to $93.8 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, in the prior year.

"Second quarter results reflect early progress towards our renewed focus on executional discipline as we drive to our goal of sustainable organic growth," said Stephen MacMillan, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our key product lines, such as Hologic's unique 3D mammography and Aptima HPV, gained momentum during the quarter. To be clear, we still have plenty of work to do in order to consistently improve our operating results, achieve long-term growth and maximize value creation. However, I am excited by how our sales teams are responding to help achieve progress towards our primary objectives: leveraging our unique collection of leading technologies to drive organic growth and focusing our capital allocation efforts on debt reduction."

Second Quarter Fiscal 2014 Revenue Overview by Segment (Compared to the Second Quarter Fiscal 2013):

  • Diagnostics revenues totaled $290.8 million compared to revenues of $296.5 million in the prior year, a decrease of 1.9%. On a non-GAAP basis, which includes the $6.4 million prior year purchase accounting adjustment, sales declined 4.0%. This decline was primarily due to: (i) the Company's divestiture of its Lifecodes business in March 2013; and (ii) decreases in ThinPrep pap test sales in the U.S. due to interval expansion. Partially offsetting these declines were increases in: (i) molecular product sales primarily from the Company's Aptima product line; and (ii) blood screening revenues.

  • Breast Health revenues grew 8.5% to $238.7 million compared to $220.1 million in the prior year. This increase was driven primarily by: (i) a significant increase in sales of 3D mammography systems as the Company continued to drive a sales shift to 3D systems from its 2D systems; (ii) service revenue growth of $7.5 million, or 9.1%, from the growing installed base of digital mammography systems; and (iii) to a lesser extent, growth in C-View system sales, as well as biopsy device sales growth, specifically the Eviva product line. Partially offsetting these increases was the expected overall sales decline of 2D systems as customers continued to move to the Company's 3D systems.

  • GYN Surgical revenues totaled $72.0 million compared to $73.7 million in the prior year, a decrease of 2.2%. Significant growth in MyoSure system sales was offset by lower NovaSure system sales. 

  • Skeletal Health revenues totaled $23.5 million compared to $22.4 million in the prior year, an increase of 4.7%. Higher revenues from the Company's new Horizon bone densitometry system were partially offset by a decrease in legacy bone densitometry system sales.

Financial Guidance:

The Company's guidance includes current operations, including revenues from its approved and cleared products. This guidance does not include the effects of any future stock repurchases, acquisitions, divestitures or additional voluntary debt payments that may occur during fiscal 2014.

Third Quarter Fiscal 2014 (Quarter Ending June 28, 2014):

  • The Company expects third quarter fiscal 2014 revenues of $615 million to $625 million. Year-over-year, this is flat to 2% down over third quarter fiscal 2013 revenues of $626.1 million

  • The Company expects non-GAAP EPS of $0.33 to $0.34.

Fiscal 2014 (Year Ending September 27, 2014):

  • The Company is raising its fiscal 2014 revenue guidance to a range of $2.460 billion to $2.490 billion (from $2.425 billion to $2.475 billion provided on February 3, 2014). Year-over-year, this represents a decrease of 1% to 2% over fiscal 2013 non-GAAP revenues of $2.512 billion (prior year reflects the addition of $19.7 million primarily relating to a purchase accounting adjustment). Prior year revenues include $23 million from Lifecodes, which the Company sold in March 2013.

  • The Company is raising its fiscal 2014 non-GAAP EPS guidance to a range of $1.37 to $1.40 (as compared to $1.34 to $1.38 provided on February 3, 2014).

Hologic may not generate expected revenues and may incur expenses or charges, realize income or gains, or execute transactions in fiscal 2014 that could cause actual results to vary from the guidance above. In addition, the Company is continuing to monitor the effects of the U.S., European and general worldwide economic and regulatory conditions and related uncertainties, including the implementation of healthcare cost containment measures and healthcare reform legislation, as well as foreign currency fluctuations, which, along with other uncertainties facing the Company's business including those referenced elsewhere herein and in its filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, could adversely affect anticipated results.

(2) Non-GAAP earnings per share was calculated based on 276,546 and 271,642 weighted average diluted shares outstanding for the three months ended March 29, 2014 and March 30, 2013, respectively, and 276,008 and 270,510 weighted average diluted shares outstanding for the six months ended March 29, 2014 and March 30, 2013, respectively.

(3) To reflect a non-cash charge attributable to the amortization of intangible assets.

(4) To reflect a charge to operating expenses attributable to contingent consideration related to certain of the Company's acquisitions.

(5) To reflect certain non-cash interest expense related to the Company's convertible notes.

(6) To reflect certain costs associated with the Company's acquisition(s) and integration plans, which primarily include retention costs, transfer costs, and asset impairments, as well as restructuring and divestiture charges.

(7) To reflect non-cash fair value adjustments for: (i) additional depreciation expense in both periods presented related to the fair value write-up of fixed assets acquired from Gen-Probe; and (ii) write-up of inventory acquired from Gen-Probe and sold during the prior year period.

(8) To reflect a net gain resulting from a cash payment received in final settlement of an agreement, net of costs associated with this transaction.

(9) To reflect a non-cash loss related to the Credit Agreement amendments for those creditors who opted not to participate in the refinancing or for partial extinguishment related to voluntary prepayments, as well as related third-party transaction costs.

(10) To reflect a non-cash impairment charge on certain of the Company's intangible assets related to the MRI breast coils product line to reflect fair value.

(11) To reflect the net impact from miscellaneous transactions during the period.

(12) To reflect an estimated annual effective tax rate of 34.5% for the three and six months ended March 29, 2014 and an annual effective tax rate of 32.0% for the three and six months ended March 30, 2013 on a non-GAAP basis.

Future Non-GAAP Adjustments:

Future GAAP EPS may be affected by changes in ongoing assumptions and judgments relating to the Company's acquired businesses, and may also be affected by nonrecurring, unusual or unanticipated charges, expenses or gains, which are excluded in the calculation of the Company's non-GAAP EPS guidance as described in this press release. It is therefore not practicable to reconcile non-GAAP EPS guidance to the most comparable GAAP measure. 

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

The Company has presented the following non-GAAP financial measures in this press release: revenues; net income; EPS; and adjusted EBITDA. The Company defines its non-GAAP revenues to primarily include contingent revenue earned post-acquisition under the blood screening collaboration which was eliminated under purchase accounting. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as its non-GAAP net income plus net interest expense, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization expense included in its non-GAAP net income. The Company defines its non-GAAP net income and EPS to exclude: (i) the amortization of intangible assets; (ii) acquisition-related charges and effects, such as charges for contingent consideration, transaction costs, integration costs including retention, and credits and/or charges associated with the write-up of acquired inventory and fixed assets to fair value, and the effect of a reduction in revenue primarily related to contingent revenue under the blood screening collaboration, described above; (iii) non-cash interest expense related to amortization of the debt discount for convertible debt securities; (iv) restructuring and divestiture charges; (v) non-cash debt extinguishment losses and related transaction costs; (vi) litigation settlement charges (benefits); (vii) other-than-temporary impairment losses on investments; (viii) other one-time, nonrecurring, unusual or infrequent charges, expenses or gains that may not be indicative of the Company's core business results; and (ix) income taxes related to such adjustments.

The Company believes the use of non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors by eliminating certain of the more significant effects of its acquisitions and related activities, non-cash charges resulting from the application of GAAP to convertible debt instruments with cash settlement features, charges related to debt extinguishment losses, investment impairments, litigation settlements, and restructuring and divestiture initiatives. These non-GAAP measures also reflect how Hologic manages its businesses internally. In addition to the adjustments set forth in the calculation of the Company's non-GAAP net income and EPS, its adjusted EBITDA eliminates the effects of financing, income taxes and the accounting effects of capital spending. As with the items eliminated in its calculation of non-GAAP net income, these items may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to the overall operating performance of a company's business. When analyzing the Company's operating performance, investors should not consider these non-GAAP financial measures as a substitute for net income prepared in accordance with GAAP.
