adobe pdf icon Analogic Announces Financial Results for the Third Quarter Ended April 30, 2013 and Declares Quarterly Cash Dividend

PEABODY, Mass., June 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Analogic Corporation (Nasdaq:ALOG), enabling the world’s medical imaging and aviation security technology, today announced results for its third quarter ended April 30, 2013.

Highlights during the third quarter (comparisons are against Q3 of fiscal 2012) included:

  • Revenue of $125.8 million, up 4% (includes partial quarter Ultrasonix revenue of $3.4 million)

  • GAAP operating margin of 5%, includes Ultrasonix acquisition-related expenses (2 points)

  • Non-GAAP operating margin of 10%

  • GAAP diluted EPS of $0.41, includes $0.18 of Ultrasonix acquisition-related and restructuring expenses

  • Non-GAAP diluted EPS of $0.76, consistent with last year

  • Ultrasonix acquisition closed, sales force integration completed

  • Security revenue of $20.1 million, up 38% on demand for high-speed threat detection systems, including first production Smiths Detection units

Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was $125.8 million, an increase of 4% compared with revenue of $121.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. GAAP net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was $5.2 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, compared with net income of $7.3 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. Included in our GAAP net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 were $2.3 million of expenses (net of tax), or $0.18 per diluted share, associated with the acquisition of Ultrasonix and restructuring charges. 

Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter was $9.6 million, or $0.76 per diluted share, compared with $9.4 million, or $0.76 per diluted share, in the prior year’s third quarter. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is included as an attachment to this press release.

For the first nine months of fiscal 2013, revenue totaled $384.2 million, up 5% from the same period in the prior year. Year-to-date GAAP net income was $19.4 million, or $1.54 per diluted share, compared with $31.0 million, or $2.45 per diluted share, from the same period last year, which included a $0.79 benefit due to a tax refund and a gain on sale of an equity interest. Year-to-date non-GAAP net income was $29.5 million, or $2.34 per diluted share, compared with $28.7 million, or $2.27 per diluted share.     

Jim Green, president and CEO, commented, “Our business continues to grow, even in this challenging market environment. Our Security business continues to demonstrate strong growth due to accelerating demand for high-speed threat detection systems outside of the U.S. Timing of shipments impacted our CT and MRI product lines in our Medical Imaging business, while digital mammography showed some modest growth. In Ultrasound, we successfully completed the Ultrasonix acquisition, implemented and stabilized the final sales structure, trained our reps on the full product portfolio, and are positioned for accelerating growth in our overall direct ultrasound business.”

Green continued, “Given current market conditions and our Ultrasound transition to high margin direct products, we are revising our total company fiscal 2013 revenue guidance and now expect to generate mid to upper single digit revenue growth. We continue to expect non-GAAP operating margin improvement of 100 basis points over last year.” 

Segment Revenues

Revenue from our Medical Imaging segment was $71.6 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2013, down 2% from revenue of $72.8 million in the same period of fiscal 2012. Medical Imaging revenues were down slightly during the quarter due to unfavorable timing of MRI shipments and lower CT engineering revenue, offset in part by modest growth in digital mammography. Year to date, Medical Imaging revenue was $228.3 million, up 3% from the prior year.

Our Ultrasound segment revenue was $34.0 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2013, consistent with revenue in the same period of fiscal 2012. Sales of core procedure-driven surgery and urology ultrasound systems were flat compared with last year due to market headwinds and temporary sales force disruption as a result of our sales force expansion and channel integration following the acquisition of Ultrasonix in fiscal 2013. The acquisition of Ultrasonix added $3.4 million of revenue during the third quarter, which offset lower OEM transducer sales during the period. Year to date, Ultrasound revenue was $106.1 million, down 3% from the prior year.

Security Technology segment revenue was $20.1 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2013, up 38% from revenue of $14.6 million in the same period of fiscal 2012. Security revenues were up during the quarter due primarily to early production shipments of high-speed CT units for Smith Detection’s new XCT system and continued strong demand for high-speed threat detection systems from L-3 Communications. Year to date, Security revenue was $49.7 million, up 41% from the prior year.

Quarterly Cash Dividend

Analogic’s Board of Directors, on May 31, 2013, declared a $0.10 cash dividend for each common share for its third fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2013. The cash dividend will be payable on June 28, 2013, to shareholders of record on June 14, 2013.

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 and nine months ended April 30, 2013 we incurred $0.3 million and $0.7 million, respectively of inquiry-related costs. During the nine months ended April 30, 2012 we incurred $1.2 million of inquiry-related costs. There was no expense incurred during the three months ended April 30, 2012.

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.

Restructuring Charges

During our third quarter of fiscal year 2013, we commenced 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. The total cost, including severance and personnel related costs, we incurred as an operating expense in the three and nine months ended April 30, 2013 was $0.5 million. 

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 nine months ended April 30, 2012.


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 the second quarter of 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 nine months ended April 30, 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.
