Fourth Quarter 2014 Results

Fourth quarter 2014 revenue was $79.9 million, compared to $77.9 million in the same period last year. GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2014 was $7.4 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, as compared to GAAP net income of $13.3 million, or $0.86 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2013. Adjusted diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2014 was $0.68 as compared to $0.94 for the fourth quarter of 2013. Also, adjusted EBITDA was $21.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2014 as compared to $20.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2013.

Full Fiscal Year 2014 Results

Fiscal year 2014 revenue was $309.3 million, compared to $313.7 million in the same period last year. GAAP net income for fiscal year 2014 was $26.3 million, or $1.68 per diluted share, as compared to GAAP net income of $40.4 million, or $2.65 per diluted share, for fiscal year 2013.

Vivek Jain, ICU Medical's Chief Executive Officer, said, "Fourth quarter and full year results were slightly above our expectations. Consistent with our trends during the previous two quarters, fourth quarter revenue was driven by strength in direct infusion therapy, oncology and international sales and this was offset by an expected decline in our OEM business."
