Non-GAAP net income was $12.8 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016 compared to the prior year's non-GAAP income of $11.2 million. Non-GAAP Gross profit margin was 60.5% vs. 63.2% reported for the second quarter of 2015.

For the six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company reported revenue of $183.3 million, an increase of 1.1% compared to $181.3 million reported for the same period in 2015.

The Company reported non-GAAP net income of $23.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2016, compared to the prior year's non-GAAP net income of $21.4 million.

Cash and cash equivalents increased by $15.0 million to $96.3 million during the quarter. The Company repurchased $7.7 million of its stock during the second quarter of 2016. Cash flow from operations for the second quarter was $13.6 million.

"I am very pleased with our record second quarter revenues and earnings per share. Our domestic neurodiagnostic and newborn care businesses reported record results in the second quarter. Our fast growing new service initiatives continued their strong performance as NicView revenues grew by 90 percent, Peloton by 80 percent and GND by 45 percent verse our second quarter last year. We remain committed to achieving our full year 2016 non-GAAP operating margin goal of 20%," said Jim Hawkins, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

"We recently announced the acquisition of RetCam, the worldwide leader in imaging systems used to diagnose and monitor a range of ophthalmic maladies in premature infants. We believe RetCam technology has exciting growth opportunities in the years ahead and are looking forward to further developing the newborn retinal imaging and screening market. Our growth strategy continues to include selective acquisitions like RetCam and potentially larger acquisitions that will expand our product offerings in the markets we serve," said Hawkins.

Financial Guidance

The Company provided revenue and earnings guidance for the second quarter and updated its revenue and earnings guidance for the full year 2016.

For the third quarter 2016, the Company expects revenue of $97.0 million to $98.0 million, GAAP earnings per share of $0.35 to $0.37 and non-GAAP earnings per share guidance of $0.41 to $0.43.

The Company increased its full year 2016 revenue guidance and now expects revenue of $388 million to $390 million compared to previous guidance of $378 million to $382 million. The updated revenue guidance includes $7 million attributable to the acquisition of RetCam. Full year 2016 guidance for GAAP earnings per share is $1.35 to $1.38. Non-GAAP earnings per share guidance is being updated to $1.67 to $1.70 compared to previous guidance of $1.61 to $1.65.

The Company's non-GAAP earnings guidance excludes amortization of acquisition related intangibles, acquisition related charges, restructuring charges, and their related tax effects. All non-GAAP earnings per share amounts are on a diluted basis.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company presents in this release its non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per share, non-GAAP gross margin and non-GAAP operating margin results which exclude amortization expense associated with certain acquisition-related intangibles, restructuring charges, certain discreet items, direct costs of acquisitions and the related tax effects. A reconciliation between non-GAAP and GAAP financial measures is included in this press release.

The Company believes that the presentation of results excluding these charges or gains provides meaningful supplemental information to both management and investors that is indicative of the Company's core operating results and better reflects the ongoing economics of the Company's operations. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures facilitate comparison of operating results across reporting periods.

Specifically, the Company excludes the following charges, gains, and their related tax effects in the calculation of non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per share and non-GAAP operating expense and excludes all but Restructuring charges from the calculation of non-GAAP gross margin: 1) Non-cash amortization expense associated with certain acquisition-related intangibles. The charges reflect an estimate of the cost of acquired intangible assets over their estimated useful lives. 2) Restructuring charges. The Company has over time completed multiple acquisitions of other companies and businesses. Following an acquisition the Company will, as it determines appropriate, initiate restructuring events to eliminate redundant costs. Restructuring expenses which are excluded in the non-GAAP items are exclusively related to permanent reductions in our workforce and redundant facility closures. 3) Certain discreet items. These items represent significant infrequent charges or gains that management believes should be viewed outside of normal operating results. These items are specifically identified when they occur. 4) Direct costs of acquisitions. These are direct acquisition-related costs that occur when the Company makes an acquisition, such as professional fees, due diligence costs, and earn-out adjustments.

The Company applies GAAP methodologies in computing its non-GAAP tax provision by determining the annual expected effective tax rate after taking into account items excluded for non-GAAP financial reporting purposes. The Company’s non-GAAP tax expense and its non-GAAP effective tax rate are generally higher than its GAAP tax expense and GAAP effective tax rate because the income subject to taxes would be higher due to the effect of the items excluded from non-GAAP financial reporting.

The Company's management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing the Company's performance and when planning, forecasting, and analyzing future periods and the Company believes that investors also benefit from being able to refer to these non-GAAP financial measures along with the GAAP operating results. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal comparisons to the Company's historical performance. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for or superior to financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements should be carefully evaluated.
