PEABODY, Mass., June 01, 2016 (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, 2016.

Highlights during the third quarter (comparisons are against Q3 of fiscal 2015) included:

  • Revenue of $128 million, down 4%
  • Gross margin of 43%, up 1 pt.
  • GAAP operating margin of 6%, up 20 bps; Non-GAAP operating margin of 12%, up 2 pts.
  • GAAP diluted EPS of $0.40; Non-GAAP diluted EPS of $0.80, both down due primarily to discrete tax benefits in Q3 FY15 totaling $0.24 per diluted share
  • Operating cash flow of $16 million
  • Board of Directors authorized an additional $15 million share repurchase
  • Shipped the 100th ruggedized CT system to our customer for the China market

Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2016 was $128 million, a decrease of 4% compared with revenue of $133.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2015. GAAP net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2016 was $5 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, compared with net income of $9.1 million, or $0.72 per diluted share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2015. Included in GAAP net income and EPS for the current quarter is $0.09 per diluted share restructuring charge associated with the 2016 Restructuring Plan previously announced in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 and $0.12 per diluted share non-cash currency charge related to balance sheet items.

Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2016 was $10.1 million, or $0.80 per diluted share, compared with $13.5 million, or $1.07 per diluted share, in the prior year’s third quarter. Included in non-GAAP net income and EPS is $0.12 per diluted share non-cash currency charge related to balance sheet items. Included in both GAAP and non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2015 is a discrete tax benefit totaling $0.24 per diluted share. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is included as an attachment to this press release.

For the first nine months of fiscal 2016, revenue totaled $370.8 million, down 4% from the same period in the prior year. Fiscal year-to-date GAAP net income was $3.4 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, compared with net income of $22.6 million, or $1.79 per diluted share, from the same period in 2015. Included in GAAP net income and EPS for the first nine months was an impact of $1.01 per diluted share, associated with the inquiry involving our Danish subsidiary, and a restructuring charge of $0.42 per diluted share. Year-to-date non-GAAP net income was $32 million, or $2.53 per diluted share, compared with $35 million, or $2.77 per diluted share, in the same period last year. Included in both GAAP and non-GAAP net income for the first nine months of fiscal 2015 is a discrete tax benefit totaling $0.24 per diluted share.

Jim Green, president and CEO, commented, “Revenues in our third quarter came in lower, as expected, due primarily to the lower run rate of security system shipments and legacy ultrasound probe sales, which both annualize in Q1 FY17. Our direct Ultrasound business continues to perform nicely, up double digits for the quarter, on strong international sales and early contributions from our technology partner in the general imaging market. Medical Imaging also demonstrated solid performance during the quarter driven by MRI growth, which generated high teens operating margins.”

Green continued, “For the remainder of the year we see steady Medical Imaging and strong direct Ultrasound growth. With the lower run rates in Security and legacy OEM ultrasound probes, we expect revenue down approximately 6% for the fiscal year. While we see GAAP operating margins for the fiscal year decline by approximately 4 pts., due primarily to our previously announced restructuring and BK Medical inquiry charges, we expect non-GAAP operating margin to increase by approximately 1 pt.”

Segment Revenues
Medical Imaging segment revenue was $72.9 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2016, up 1% from revenue of $71.9 million in the same period of fiscal 2015, due primarily to growth in MRI partially offset by timing of mammography shipments.

Direct Ultrasound revenue was up 12% for the quarter compared with last year due to strong sales in Europe and China. Overall, Ultrasound segment revenue was $37.6 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2016, down 3% from revenue of $38.6 million in the same period of fiscal 2015, due to expected declines in OEM probe revenue.

Security and Detection segment revenue was $17.5 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2016, down 24% from revenue of $23.1 million in the same period of fiscal 2015, on lower medium-speed system shipments and unfavorable mix of high-speed system shipments.

Share Repurchase Program
On May 26, 2016, our Board of Directors authorized an additional repurchase of $15 million of our common stock. The repurchase program will be funded by our available cash. The repurchase program does not have a fixed expiration date.

Quarterly Cash Dividend
On May 26, 2016, Analogic’s Board of Directors declared a $0.10 cash dividend for each common share for its third fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2016. The cash dividend will be payable on June 24, 2016, to shareholders of record on June 11, 2016.
