PEABODY, Mass., June 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Analogic Corporation (Nasdaq:ALOG), enabling the world's medical imaging and aviation security technology, today announced results for its third quarter ended April 30, 2014.

Highlights during the third quarter (comparisons are against Q3 of fiscal 2013) included:

  • Revenue of $124.0 million, down 1%
  • Gross margin of 43%, up 4 points
  • GAAP operating margin of 8%, up 3 pts.; Non-GAAP operating margin of 12%, up 2 pts.
  • GAAP diluted EPS of $0.62; Non-GAAP diluted EPS of $0.94
  • Positive operating cash flow of $17.9 million

Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was $124.0 million, a decrease of 1% compared with revenue of $125.8 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013. GAAP net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 was $7.8 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, compared with net income of $5.2 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2013.

Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter was $11.8 million, or $0.94 per diluted share, compared with $9.6 million, or $0.76 per diluted share, in the prior year's third quarter. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is included as an attachment to this press release.

For the first nine months of fiscal 2014, revenue totaled $375.6 million, down 2% from the same period in the prior year. Year-to-date GAAP net income was $23.3 million, or $1.84 per diluted share, compared with $19.4 million, or $1.54 per diluted share, from the same period last year. Year-to-date non-GAAP net income was $27.5 million, or $2.17 per diluted share, compared with $29.5 million, or $2.34 per diluted share, in the same period last year.

Jim Green, president and CEO, commented, "In spite of the continued challenges in market conditions that negatively impacted our top line in the third quarter, we improved our operating margins and delivered positive cash flows. As a result of continued healthcare market challenges and delays in airport tenders, the exit from our legacy patient monitoring business and a reduction in funded engineering, we anticipate that fiscal 2014 net revenue will decline mid-single digits from fiscal 2013. We remain focused on profitability and expect to deliver double-digit non-GAAP operating margins this fiscal year."

Green continued, "We remain optimistic about the future, as our newly released CT platform helps stabilize our medical imaging business, multi-unit international airport tenders drive strong security business sales, and we further expand our fast-growing direct Ultrasound business with the commercialization of the first-ever Sonic Window™ handheld Ultrasound. In addition, we have taken aggressive moves to control costs to offset lower external engineering funding. Finally, we will no longer have the difficult year-over-year comparison related to the exit from the patient monitoring and non-strategic legacy OEM probes. While we face near-term market challenges, we continue to execute on our strategy and remain optimistic about our long-term growth prospects."

Segment Revenues

Revenue from our Medical Imaging segment was $71.6 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2014, consistent with the same period of fiscal 2013, as growth in MRI sales was offset by lower customer funded engineering and the exit from our legacy patient monitoring product line. Year-to-date, Medical Imaging revenue was $211.5 million, down 7% from the prior year.

Our Ultrasound segment revenue was $37.3 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2014, up 10% from revenue of $34.0 million in the same period of fiscal 2013. Solid global direct channel sales in our primary markets of urology and surgery, and our expansion into the point-of-care ultrasound market drove the growth in the quarter, offsetting a decline in legacy Ultrasound OEM probe sales. Year-to-date, Ultrasound revenue was $112.1 million, up 6% from the prior year.

Security Technology segment revenue was $15.1 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2014, down 25% from revenue of $20.1 million in the same period of fiscal 2013. Security revenues during the quarter were lower on fewer shipments of high-speed threat detection systems primarily due to international airport tender delays. Year-to-date, Security Technology revenue was $52.0 million, up 5% from the prior year.

Quarterly Cash Dividend

On June 3, 2014, Analogic's Board of Directors declared a $0.10 cash dividend for each common share for its third fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2014. The cash dividend will be payable on June 26, 2014, to shareholders of record on June 16, 2014.

We provide non-GAAP income from operations, operating margin, other income, net income, and diluted net income per share as supplemental measures to reported results regarding our operational performance. These financial measures exclude the impact of certain items and, therefore, have not been calculated in accordance with GAAP. The adjustments to these financial measures, and the basis for such adjustments, are outlined below:

Share-Based Compensation Expense

We incur expense related to share-based compensation included in the reported presentation of cost of sales, research and development, selling and marketing, and general and administrative expense. Although share-based compensation is an expense and viewed as a form of compensation, these expenses vary in amount from period to period. In addition, fluctuations in market price and volatility of our shares, risk-free interest rates, and the expected term and forfeiture rates of the awards impact the expense period to period. A portion of our equity compensation is performance-based, which drives volatility in expense as estimated performance-based metrics are updated for actual and forecasted results. Our management team believes that exclusion of these expenses allows comparisons of operating results that are consistent between periods and allows comparisons of our operating results to those of other companies that disclose non-GAAP financial measures that exclude share-based compensation.

BK Medical Distributor Matter Inquiry-Related Costs

As initially disclosed in our annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2011, we have identified transactions involving our Danish subsidiary, BK Medical, and certain of its foreign distributors, with respect to which we have raised questions concerning compliance with law and our business policies. We have concluded that the identified transactions have been properly accounted for in our reported consolidated financial statements in all material respects. During the three and nine months ended April 30, 2014 we incurred $0.4 million and $1.3 million of pre-tax inquiry-related costs, respectively. We incurred $0.3 million and $0.7 million of pre-tax inquiry-related costs during the three and nine months ended April 30, 2013, respectively.

Acquisition Related Expenses

We incur amortization of intangibles and other expenses related to acquisitions. The intangible assets are valued at the time of acquisition and are amortized over their estimated economic life. We believe the exclusion of these acquisition related expenses allow comparisons of operating results that are consistent over time for both our newly acquired and long-held businesses. On March 2, 2013, we acquired Ultrasonix Medical Corporation and on September 20, 2013 we acquired the remaining 90% equity interest in PocketSonics, Inc. We initially purchased a 10% equity interest in PocketSonics in April 2010. During the three and nine months ended April 30, 2014, we incurred pre-tax acquisition-related expenses associated with the Ultrasonix and PocketSonics acquisitions of $1.5 million and $5.0 million, respectively. The remainder relates to prior acquisitions.

Restructuring Charges

Through the third quarter of fiscal year 2014, we continued the process of consolidating manufacturing and certain support activities currently conducted at our Ultrasonix facility in Vancouver, Canada with operations at our existing facilities, which we refer to as the Vancouver manufacturing consolidation, which began in fiscal 2013. In addition, we have undertaken other restructuring activities to further streamline our business and realize synergies, including the consolidation of our ultrasound transducer operation in Englewood, Colorado, into our other existing operations, and other efforts to further optimize our global operational footprint. Total pre-tax restructuring charges for the three and nine months ended April 30, 2014 amounted to ($0.1 million) and $0.2 million, respectively.


For purposes of calculating non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, we adjust the provision for (benefit from) income taxes to tax effect the non-GAAP adjustments described above as they have a significant impact on our income tax (benefit) provision. In addition, from time-to-time, we recognize certain non-recurring tax adjustments.

During the nine months ended April 30, 2014, we excluded from our non-GAAP results $8.8 million in discrete net tax benefits primarily associated with a reduction in taxes expected to be payable in the future associated with our Canadian operations. These benefits were excluded from our non-GAAP results as the significant benefit recorded in the second quarter of fiscal year 2014 was non-recurring and management believes not helpful in evaluating short-term and longer-term trends in our operations.


We exclude the above-described expenses, their related tax impact and other non-recurring tax benefits in evaluating short-term and long-term operating trends in our operations, and allocating resources to various initiatives and operational requirements. We believe that these non-GAAP financial adjustments are useful to investors because they allow investors to evaluate the effectiveness of the methodology and information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making.

These non-GAAP financial measures have not been prepared in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information provided in accordance with GAAP. Further, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be computed in the same manner as similarly titled measures used by other companies. The following table reconciles the non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
