Analogic Announces Financial Results for the First Quarter Ended October 31, 2012 and Declares Quarterly Cash Dividend

PEABODY, Mass., Dec. 6, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Analogic Corporation (Nasdaq:ALOG), enabling the world's medical imaging and aviation security technology, today announced results for its first quarter ended October 31, 2012.

Highlights for the first quarter (comparisons are against Q1 of fiscal 2012) included:

  • Revenue of $119.9 million, up 2%
  • GAAP operating margin of 6%, up 1 point
  • Non-GAAP operating margin of 9%, up 1 point
  • GAAP diluted EPS of $0.35; Non-GAAP diluted EPS of $0.53
  • Received initial production orders associated with Smiths Detection's new HI-SCAN 10080 XCT checked-baggage threat-detection system, which received certification in the European Union during the quarter

Revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 was $119.9 million, an increase of 2% compared with revenue of $117.9 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 was $4.4 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, compared with net income of $4.0 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter was $6.7 million, or $0.53 per diluted share, compared with $6.7 million, or $0.53 per diluted share, in the prior year's first quarter. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is included as an attachment to this press release.

Jim Green, president and CEO, commented, "Our business performance for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 exhibited typical seasonal fluctuations due in part to timing of hospital equipment purchases. While our overall revenue grew modestly during the quarter, our non-GAAP operating margins improved by 100 basis points compared with last year, due to our strength in pricing and continued focus on cost."

Green added, "In spite of market headwinds, we expect to achieve our stated FY 2013 financial goals of upper single digit revenue growth and 100 basis point improvement in full-year non-GAAP operating margin."

Segment Revenues

Revenue from our Medical Imaging segment was $76.0 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013, up 5% from revenue of $72.7 million in the same period of fiscal 2012. Medical Imaging revenues improved during the quarter due largely to strong growth in MRI amplifier sales driven by migration to high-power wide-bore MRI systems. While CT revenues remained steady year over year, mammography and motion controls revenue declined during the quarter on market headwinds.

Our Ultrasound segment revenue was $31.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013, down 8% from revenue of $34.6 million in the same period of fiscal 2012. Ultrasound revenue was unfavorably impacted by hospital purchasing hesitancy in the U.S., the short-term impact of U.S. sales territory adjustments as we expand sales force coverage, unfavorable foreign currency fluctuations, and distributor transitions in Eastern Europe.

Security Technology segment revenue was $12.2 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2013, up 15% from revenue of $10.6 million in the same period of fiscal 2012. Security revenue reflected continued growing demand for high-speed threat-detection systems for aviation security and increased customer funded engineering revenue.

Quarterly Cash Dividend

Analogic's Board of Directors, on December 4, 2012, declared a $0.10 cash dividend for each common share for its first fiscal quarter ended October 31, 2012. The cash dividend will be payable on December 28, 2012, to shareholders of record on December 18, 2012.

We provide non-GAAP operating income and margin, 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 GAAP 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, and are affected by market forces that are difficult to predict and are not within our control, such as the market price and volatility of our shares, risk-free interest rates, and the expected term and forfeiture rates of the awards. Additionally, 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. We believe that exclusion of this expense 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 Distributor Matter Inquiry-Related Costs

As previously disclosed in the Company's annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2012, the Company has identified transactions involving our Danish subsidiary, BK Medical, and certain of its foreign distributors, with respect to which the Company has raised questions concerning compliance with law and the Company's business policies. The Company has concluded that the identified transactions have been properly accounted for in our GAAP financial statements in all material respects. During the three months ended October 31, 2012 and 2011, we incurred $0.1 million and $1.0 million, respectively, of inquiry-related costs and have excluded this amount from our non-GAAP results.

Acquisition Related Expenses

We incur amortization of intangibles and other expenses related to acquisitions we have made in recent years. The intangible assets are valued at the time of acquisition, are then amortized over a period of several years after the acquisition and generally cannot be changed after the acquisition.


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

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.
