Analogic Announces Financial Results for the Second Quarter Ended January 31, 2015 and Declares Quarterly Cash Dividend

PEABODY, Mass., March 10, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Analogic Corporation (Nasdaq:ALOG), enabling the world's medical imaging and aviation security technology, today announced results for its second quarter ended January 31, 2015.

Highlights during the second quarter (comparisons are against Q2 of fiscal 2014) included:

  • Revenue of $134 million, down 5%
  • Gross margin of 43%
  • GAAP operating margin of 9%; Non-GAAP operating margin of 13%
  • GAAP diluted EPS of $0.78; Non-GAAP diluted EPS of $1.08

Revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 was $133.9 million, a decrease of 5% compared with revenue of $141.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2014. GAAP net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 was $9.8 million, or $0.78 per diluted share, compared with net income of $19.3 million, or $1.53 per diluted share, in the second quarter of fiscal 2014. Included in our GAAP net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 were non-recurring tax benefits of $8.8 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, primarily associated with our Canadian operations.

Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter was $13.6 million, or $1.08 per diluted share, compared with $14.8 million, or $1.17 per diluted share, in the prior year's second quarter. Our non-GAAP results do not include the tax benefit noted above. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is included as an attachment to this press release.

For the first six months of fiscal 2015, revenue totaled $252.3 million, consistent with the same period in the prior year. Year-to-date GAAP net income was $13.5 million, or $1.07 per diluted share, compared with $15.5 million, or $1.23 per diluted share, from the same period last year. Included in our GAAP net income last fiscal year were the nonrecurring tax benefits noted above of $8.8 million, or $0.69 per diluted share. Year-to-date non-GAAP net income was $21.5 million, or $1.70 per diluted share, compared with $15.6 million, or $1.23 per diluted share, in the same period last year. Our non-GAAP results do not include the tax benefit noted above.

Jim Green, president and CEO, commented, "Our performance during the first half of the year was in-line with our expectations, with strong revenue growth expected in the second half of the fiscal year. Our Ultrasound business continued to see double-digit growth on a constant currency basis. We also continued to build our backlog in Security and Detection, putting us in a position for strong double-digit revenue growth in this segment this fiscal year."

Green continued, "We are maintaining our fiscal 2015 outlook of revenue growing mid-single digits with a 1-2 point improvement in non-GAAP operating margin."

Segment Revenues

Revenue from our Medical Imaging segment was $73.1 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2015, down 8% from revenue of $79.6 million in the same period of fiscal 2014. The decline in Medical Imaging revenues was primarily driven by the timing of shipments compared to the prior year. On a year-to-date basis, Medical Imaging revenue was $139.9 million, consistent with the prior year.

Our Ultrasound segment revenue was $42.5 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2015, 6% growth over the $40.1 million in the same period of fiscal 2014. On a constant currency basis, the growth in Ultrasound was 10% for the quarter. Ultrasound revenue growth was driven by direct sales in North America and in China, as well as higher sales of OEM ultrasound probes. Year-to-date, Ultrasound revenue was $80.3 million, up 7% from the prior year, or 10% in constant currency.

Security and Detection segment revenue was $18.3 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2015, down 16% from revenue of $21.7 million in the same period of fiscal 2014, due to timing of shipments as the majority of the growing backlog is scheduled to ship in the second half of this fiscal year. Year to date, Security and Detection revenue was $32.1 million, down 13% from the prior year.

Quarterly Cash Dividend

On March 5, 2015, Analogic's Board of Directors declared a $0.10 cash dividend for each common share for its second fiscal quarter ended January 31, 2015. The cash dividend will be payable on April 3, 2015 to shareholders of record on March 20, 2015.

UNAUDITED SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION - RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP MEASURES

We provide non-GAAP income from operations, 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, 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

In fiscal year 2011, we 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 six months ended January 31, 2015 we incurred $0.4 million and $1.1 million of pre-tax inquiry-related costs, respectively. We incurred $0.6 million and $0.9 million of pre-tax inquiry-related costs during the three and six months ended January 31, 2014, respectively.

Acquisition-related Expenses

Acquisition-related expenses relate to the amortization of intangibles and fair value adjustments associated with assets acquired and contingent liabilities from our business combinations. These expenses also include other transaction costs related to the 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. During the three and six months ended January 31, 2015, we incurred $2.3 million and $4.5 million of pre-tax acquisition-related expenses, respectively. We incurred $2.0 million and $4.5 million of pre-tax acquisition-related costs during the three and six months ended January 31, 2014, respectively.

Restructuring Charges

During the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2014, we implemented our fiscal year 2014 restructuring plan (FY14 restructuring plan) to optimize our operations in Peabody, Massachusetts, which affected 48 employees. In May 2013, we announced our fiscal year 2013 restructuring plan (FY13 restructuring plan) primarily relating to severance and personnel related costs of 115 involuntarily terminated employees, as well as for facility exit costs associated with restructuring activities, including the consolidation of manufacturing and certain support activities currently conducted at the Ultrasonix facility in Vancouver, into operations at our existing facilities, closure of the Ultrasonix sales subsidiary in Paris, France, the transition costs associated with the planned closure of our Englewood, Colorado facility, as we consolidated certain ultrasound transducer manufacturing and development activities into our State College, Pennsylvania facility, and optimization of our operations in Montreal, Canada and Peabody Massachusetts. We continue to have adjustments on our FY14 restructuring plan through January 31, 2015, as we expect to complete restructuring activities in fiscal year 2015 for the FY 14 plan; we substantially completed restructuring activities in fiscal year 2014 for the FY13 plan. We incurred $(0.2) million of pre-tax restructuring costs for both three and six months ended January 31, 2015.

Taxes

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 provision (benefit). In addition, from time-to-time, we recognize certain non-recurring tax adjustments.

During the three and six months ended January 31, 2014, we excluded from our non-GAAP results $8.8 million in non-recurring tax benefits primarily 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. No similar benefit or adjustment was recognized during the three and six months ended January 31, 2015.

Summary

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.
