Revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 was $166.2 million, an increase of 10% compared with revenue of $151.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 was $11.7 million, or $0.93 per diluted share, compared with net income of $12.1 million, or $0.96 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. Included in our GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 was $4.4 million (net of tax), or $0.35 per diluted share, associated with the acquisition of Ultrasonix and restructuring charges.

Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter was $19.3 million, or $1.53 per diluted share, compared with $16.6 million, or $1.32 per diluted share, from the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is included as an attachment to this press release.

For fiscal 2013, revenues totaled $550.4 million, compared with revenues of $516.6 million in fiscal 2012, up 7%. GAAP net income for fiscal 2013 totaled $31.1 million, or $2.48 per diluted share, as compared with $43.1 million, or $3.42 per diluted share, for fiscal 2012. Our fiscal 2013 GAAP net income included net of tax charges of $7.1 million, or $0.56 per diluted share, associated with the acquisition of Ultrasonix and restructuring charges. Our fiscal 2012 GAAP net income included a net of tax benefit of $10 million, or $0.79 per share, from a tax refund and gain on sale of an equity investment.

Non-GAAP net income for fiscal 2013 totaled $48.8 million, or $3.88 per diluted share, as compared with $45.3 million, or $3.60 per diluted share, for fiscal 2012.

Jim Green, president and CEO, commented, “I am very pleased to report that we achieved record revenue in our fourth quarter and we met our stated FY2013 guidance of mid-to-upper single digit revenue growth and 1 point improvement in non-GAAP operating margin. With the structural changes we’ve made over the last year, we are now positioned to accelerate growth in our high-margin direct business.” 

Green added, “Even with today’s challenging market conditions, we expect FY2014 to continue to deliver upper single digit revenue growth and continued operating margin improvement.”

Segment Revenue

Revenue from our Medical Imaging segment was $90.2 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013, up 11% from revenue of $81.1 million in the same period of fiscal 2012. The revenue increase was due to an increase in sales of MRI subsystems, in part associated with shipment delays from the third quarter of fiscal 2013 as well as improved customer terms, and improved mammography detector sales offset by lower CT revenue during the quarter off a strong fourth quarter in CT last fiscal year. For the full year, Medical Imaging revenue was $318.6 million, up 6% from fiscal 2012.

Our Ultrasound segment revenue was $43.7 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013, up 5% from revenue of $41.6 million in the same period of fiscal 2012. The revenue increase was primarily due to sales of Ultrasonix products ($6.7 million) offset by lower OEM transducer sales. For the full year, Ultrasound revenue was $149.8 million, down 1% from fiscal 2012.

Security Technology segment revenue was $32.3 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013, up 14% from revenue of $28.3 million in the same period of fiscal 2012. The strong growth in security revenue was due to shipments of both high-speed and medium-speed systems. For the full year, Security revenue was $82.0 million, up 29% from fiscal 2012.

Quarterly Cash Dividend

Analogic’s Board of Directors, on September 10, 2013, declared a $0.10 cash dividend for each common share for its fourth fiscal quarter ended July 31, 2013. The cash dividend will be paid on October 10, 2013, to shareholders of record on September 26, 2013.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This document includes non-GAAP financial measures that are not in accordance with, nor an alternative to, generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. They are limited in value because they exclude charges that have a material effect on our reported results and, therefore, should not be relied upon as the sole financial measure to evaluate our financial results. The non-GAAP financial measures are meant to supplement, and to be viewed in conjunction with, GAAP financial results. An explanation and a reconciliation of our non-GAAP measures are provided at the end of this press release.

In addition, the
forward-looking statements included in this presentation represent the Company’s views as of the date of this document. While the Company anticipates that subsequent events and developments will cause the Company’s views to change, the Company specifically disclaims any obligation to update these forward-looking statements.

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

We provide 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, 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. 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

As initially disclosed in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2011, 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 reported financial statements in all material respects. During the three months and full-year ended July 31, 2013 we incurred $0.5 million and $1.2 million, respectively of inquiry-related costs. During the three months and full-year ended July 31, 2012 we incurred $0.1 million and $1.3 million, respectively of inquiry-related costs.

Acquisition Related Gains and Expenses

We incur amortization of intangibles and other expenses related to acquisitions. The intangible assets are valued at the time of acquisition, are then amortized over a period of up to several years after the acquisition and generally cannot be changed after the acquisition. 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. On March 2, 2013, we acquired Ultrasonix Medical Corporation. During the three months and full-year ended July 31, 2013, we incurred acquisition-related expenses associated with the Ultrasonix acquisition of $3.1 million and $5.6 million, respectively.

Restructuring Charges

During our fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013, we continued the process of consolidating manufacturing and certain support activities currently conducted at our Ultrasonix facility in Vancouver, Canada with operations at our existing facilities, which we refer to as the Vancouver manufacturing consolidation. In addition, we have undertaken other restructuring activities to further streamline our business and realize synergies, including the consolidation of our ultrasound transducer operation in Englewood, Colorado, into our other existing operations, and other efforts to further optimize our global operational footprint. The total cost, including severance and personnel related costs, we incurred as an operating expense in the three months and full-year ended July 31, 2013 was $3.0 million and $3.5 million, respectively. 

Gain on Sale of Other Investments

On July 25, 2011, we entered into an agreement to sell our 25% interest in our China-based affiliate for $2.5 million. The book value of our interest in the China-based affiliate was written down to $0 in fiscal 2006, and we, upon final approval of the transaction by the Chinese government, recorded a gain of $2.5 million in the full-year ended July 31, 2012.

Taxes

For purposes of calculating non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, we adjust the provision (benefit from) for 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 fiscal year 2012, we received a refund of $12.0 million as the result of the completion of an Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) audit of federal income tax returns for the fiscal years ended July 31, 2003, 2005, and 2008. The refund was largely the result of Federal research and experimentation credits that carryover from the fiscal years 1991 through 2000 into the audited returns. We recorded a tax benefit for this refund, including the related interest, in the unaudited Consolidated Statement of Operations of $10.0 million in
the three and nine months ended April 30, 2012. The tax benefit from the refund and interest were partially offset by related contingent professional fees of $2.7 million recorded in general and administrative expenses within income from operations in the unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations in the three and full-year ended July 31, 2012. As these adjustments do not reflect the underlying performance of the business they have been excluded from non-GAAP net income.

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.
