PEABODY, Mass., March 02, 2016 (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, 2016.

Highlights during the second quarter (comparisons are against Q2 of fiscal 2015) included:

  • Revenue of $128 million, down 5% (4% on constant currency)
  • Gross margin of 46%, up 3 pts (an additional 0.5 point on constant currency)
  • Non-GAAP operating margin of 15%, up 2 pts; Non-GAAP diluted EPS of $1.18, up $0.10
  • GAAP operating margin of 1%; GAAP diluted loss per share of ($0.24), includes a $13.3 million, or $1.07 per diluted share, accrual in connection with the inquiry involving our Danish subsidiary, BK Medical, ApS, and a $3.1 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, of pre-tax restructuring charges
  • Launched new telehealth initiative through the acquisition of Oncura Partners
  • Received first commercial order for Sonic Window in dialysis after the end of the quarter

Revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 was $127.9 million, a decrease of 5% or 4% on constant currency, compared with revenue of $133.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2015. GAAP net loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 was ($3.0) million, or ($0.24) per diluted share, compared with net income of $9.8 million, or $0.78 per diluted share, in the second quarter of fiscal 2015. Included in GAAP net loss and diluted EPS for the second quarter is a pre-tax accrual of $13.3 million, or $1.07 per diluted share, associated with the inquiry involving our Danish subsidiary BK Medical and a pre-tax restructuring charge of $3.1 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, associated with the 2016 Restructuring Plan previously announced in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015.

Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter was $14.9 million, or $1.18 per diluted share, compared with $13.6 million, or $1.08 per diluted share, in the prior year’s second quarter. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is included as an attachment to this press release.

For the first six months of fiscal 2016, revenue totaled $242.8 million, down 4% or 3% on constant currency, from the same period in the prior year. Fiscal year-to-date GAAP net loss was ($1.6) million, or ($0.13) per diluted share, compared with net income of $13.5 million, or $1.07 per diluted share, from the same period in 2015. Included in GAAP net loss and diluted EPS for the first six months was a pre-tax accrual of $13.3 million, or $1.07 per diluted share, associated with the inquiry involving our Danish subsidiary BK Medical and a pre-tax restructuring charge of $6.4 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, associated with the 2016 Restructuring Plan previously announced in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015. Year-to-date non-GAAP net income was $21.9 million, or $1.73 per diluted share, compared with $21.5 million, or $1.70 per diluted share, in the same period last year.

Jim Green, president and CEO, commented, “As expected, revenues in our second quarter were below last year, due primarily to lower legacy ultrasound probes and timing of Security shipments, but our profitability continued to improve with mid-teens non-GAAP operating margins driving a significant increase in non-GAAP earnings per share. Our Security segment continued to exhibit volatility due to shifting schedules from our OEM customers and Rapid DNA payment delays affecting revenue recognition. Medical Imaging performed as expected, with demand for our private label CT product increasing in China, and our performance in direct Ultrasound continues with strong growth and improved margins driven by North America and China.”

Green continued, “Looking to the second half of the fiscal year, we see Ultrasound building momentum as we begin selling our new bk3500 into point-of-care settings and we begin layering on ultrasound product revenues from our technology partner as they penetrate the broader general imaging market. Our new telehealth initiative, through the acquisition of Oncura Partners, further accelerates ultrasound growth. After the close of the quarter, I am very pleased to say that we received our first commercial order for our Sonic Window used for dialysis, another incremental driver for long-term growth.”

Green added, “In the second half we continue to expect strong Ultrasound growth and solid Medical Imaging, impacted by declines in Security. For the full year we now expect revenue to be down mid-single digits, low single digits on constant currency, with favorable mix and cost focus driving continued non-GAAP operating margin expansion of over one point.”

Segment Revenues

Medical Imaging segment revenue was $73.5 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2016, consistent with revenue of $73.1 million in the same period of fiscal 2015, due primarily to growth in mammography and MR offset by timing of shipments in CT despite solid growth in our private label CT shipments to China.

Ultrasound segment revenue was $43.3 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2016, up 2% (up 5% in constant currency) from revenue of $42.5 million in the same period of fiscal 2015, due to strong growth (11% in constant currency) in direct sales offset by the decline in OEM probes.

Security and Detection segment revenue was $11.1 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2016, down 39% from revenue of $18.3 million in the same period of fiscal 2015, on timing of high-speed system shipments and payment delays from Rapid DNA systems.

Investigation Regarding our BK Medical Subsidiary

As initially disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2011, we identified certain transactions involving our Danish subsidiary BK Medical ApS, or BK Medical, and certain of its foreign distributors, with respect to which we have raised questions concerning compliance with law, including Danish law and the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and our business policies. We are engaged in discussions with the SEC, the DOJ and the Danish Government concerning a final resolution of these matters. In the second quarter of fiscal 2016, we accrued a charge of $13.3 million, of which $10.1 million was classified as general and administrative expense and $3.2 million was classified as other expense, net in our Consolidated Statements of Operations, in connection with these matters. This is in addition to a $1.6 million charge that we accrued in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, of which $1.0 million was classified as general and administrative expense and $0.6 million was classified as other expense, net in our Consolidated Statements of Operations. Any resolution of these matters, and the terms of and amounts payable in connection with any such resolution is subject to negotiation and approval of agreements with each of the SEC, the DOJ, and the Danish government.

Quarterly Cash Dividend

On February 26, 2016, Analogic’s Board of Directors declared a $0.10 cash dividend for each common share for its second fiscal quarter ended January 31, 2016. The cash dividend will be payable on March 25, 2016, to shareholders of record on March 11, 2016.
