Also included in GAAP net income and diluted EPS for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 were one-time net charges of $2.2 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in connection with our Oncura veterinary business.

Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2018 was $16.0 million, or $1.27 per diluted share, compared with $12.6 million, or $0.99 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 2018, revenue totaled $236.0 million, down 7% from the same period in the prior fiscal year. Fiscal year-to-date GAAP net income was $12.2 million, or $0.97 per diluted share, compared with net income of $10.0 million, or $0.79 per diluted share, from the same period in 2017. Included in GAAP net income and diluted EPS for the first six months of 2018 is a provisional $6.5 million income tax expense, or $0.51 per diluted share, for the one-time transition tax associated with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 that was recently signed into law. Included in year-to-date fiscal 2017 GAAP net income and diluted EPS were one-time net charges of $2.3 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, in connection with our Oncura veterinary business.

Segment Revenues for the Second Quarter of Fiscal 2018
Medical Imaging segment revenue was $63.4 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2018, down 12% from revenue of $72.4 million in the same period of fiscal 2017, primarily due to lower sales in CT associated with previously reported customer sourcing decisions combined with lower sales in MR offset by favorability in Motion Controls.

Ultrasound segment revenue was $43.5 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2018, up 8% from revenue of $40.3 million in the same period of fiscal 2017, due to the strong sales growth in North America and Europe. Revenue was partially offset by the comparative lower revenue from discontinued Oncura veterinary system sales.

Security and Detection segment revenue was $22.3 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2018, up 18% from revenue of $18.8 million in the same period of fiscal 2017 mainly driven by strong demand for international high-speed threat detection systems and increased revenue in Rapid DNA.

Quarterly Cash Dividend
On March 1, 2018, Analogic’s Board of Directors declared a $0.10 cash dividend for each common share for its second fiscal quarter ended January 31, 2018. The cash dividend will be payable on March 26, 2018, to shareholders of record on March 15, 2018.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
We supplement our GAAP financial reporting with certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP other income and expense, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP effective tax rate and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share. These measures are not presented in accordance with, nor are they a substitute for, U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. In addition, these measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies, limiting their usefulness for comparison purposes. The non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool. We have included at the end of this document a reconciliation of each historical non-GAAP financial measure used in this document to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

We utilize a number of different financial measures, both GAAP and non-GAAP, in analyzing and assessing the overall performance of our business, in making operating decisions, in forecasting and planning for future periods, and in determining payments under our compensation programs. We also believe that non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results and in comparing financial results across accounting periods and to those of other companies.
