Revenue and Profitability In-Line; Fiscal 2017 Guidance Revised Primarily on Lower Ultrasound Revenue and Margin

PEABODY, Mass., June 06, 2017 (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, 2017.

Highlights during the third quarter (comparisons are against Q3 of fiscal 2016) included:

  • Revenue of $122.2 million, down 5%
  • Gross margin of 43%
  • GAAP operating margin of (53%); Non-GAAP operating margin of 10%
  • GAAP diluted EPS of ($4.78); Non-GAAP diluted EPS of $0.79
  • Operating cash flow of $13 million with free cash flow of $11 million
  • Non-cash asset impairment charge of $73 million for goodwill and intangibles in the Ultrasound business

Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2017 was $122.2 million compared with revenue of $128.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2016. GAAP net loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2017 was ($59.7) million, or ($4.78) per diluted share, compared with net income of $5.0 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2016. Included in the GAAP net loss and diluted EPS for the third quarter of fiscal 2017 was a $2.1 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, restructuring charge due to severance expense associated with the previously announced 2017 Restructuring Plan. Also included in the GAAP net loss and EPS is a non-cash, pre-tax, asset impairment charge of $73.1 million, or $5.29 per diluted share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2017 due to the write-down of goodwill and intangibles in the Ultrasound business.

Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2017, excluding the above-mentioned items, was $10.0 million, or $0.79 per diluted share, compared with $10.1 million, or $0.80 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 2017, revenue totaled $374.8 million, up 1% from the same period in the prior year. Fiscal year-to-date GAAP net loss was ($49.6) million, or ($3.98) per diluted share, compared with net income of $3.4 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, from the same period in 2016. Included in GAAP net income and EPS for the first nine months of fiscal 2017 were restructuring charges of $2.4 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, for severance-related expenses and pre-tax asset impairment charges totaling $83.5 million, or $5.83 per diluted share, primarily associated with the write-down of goodwill and intangibles related to lower forecasted revenue in Ultrasound.  Included in GAAP net income and diluted EPS for year-to-date fiscal 2017 was a $10.2 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, benefit due to a contingent consideration adjustment associated with a decrease in forecasted revenues from the Oncura veterinary acquisition. Included in GAAP net income and diluted EPS for the first nine months of fiscal 2016 was a pre-tax accrual of $13.3 million, or $1.01 per diluted share, associated with the inquiry involving the company’s Danish subsidiary BK Medical and a pre-tax restructuring charge of $8.3 million, or $0.42 per diluted share. Year-to-date non-GAAP net income was $27.9 million, or $2.20 per diluted share, compared with $32.0 million, or $2.53 per diluted share, in the same period last year.

Fred Parks, president and CEO, commented, “Third-quarter results were in-line with expectations, nonetheless we are confident our performance will eventually benefit from the restructuring actions announced last quarter. As anticipated, revenues declined year over year due to lower revenue in our Ultrasound and Medical Imaging businesses. Our efforts in Ultrasound to optimize the product portfolio and reduce operating expenses are on track to be completed by fiscal year-end. We are driving solid performance in Security as we capitalize on continued demand for high-speed systems.

“During the quarter, Analogic incurred a significant asset impairment charge associated with the write-off of goodwill and intangibles in our Ultrasound business resulting from our revised revenue expectations for the general imaging product being offered by our technology partner and revenues from our Oncura veterinary business. Additional delays due to software development and new applications resulted in a reassessment of our long-term expectations for our general imaging product. Also, we have decided to discontinue further investment in our handheld Sonic Window platform. Our Ultrasound business is returning to our core of urology and surgical guidance with upside opportunities in point-of-care and eventually general imaging.”

Segment Revenues for the Third Quarter

Medical Imaging segment revenue was $69.5 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2017, down 5% from revenue of $72.9 million in the same period of fiscal 2016, due to lower revenues in CT and MRI, offset by favorable performance in Motion. Year-to-date Medical Imaging revenues were $209.0 million, down 1% from fiscal 2016.

Ultrasound segment revenue was $34.8 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2017, down 7% from revenue of $37.6 million in the same period of fiscal 2016, due to delays in general imaging system sales and lower point-of-care revenue, partially offset by growth in China and Europe distributors. Year-to-date Ultrasound revenues were $110.9 million, down 6% from last year.

Security and Detection segment revenue was $17.9 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2017, up 2% from revenue of $17.5 million, on continued demand for high-speed checked baggage screening systems. Year-to-date Security and Detection revenues were $54.9 million, up 31% from last year.

Fiscal 2017 Outlook
Total company revenue for fiscal 2017 is now expected to be down low to mid-single digits compared with fiscal 2016 with non-GAAP operating margins in the range of 8.5% — 9.5% resulting in non-GAAP earnings per share between $2.40 and $2.70.

  • Ultrasound revenue is expected to be down high single digits with negative low-double-digit operating margins as the company finishes its restructuring plan and product portfolio optimization effort.
  • Medical Imaging revenue is expected to be down mid-single digits with continued high-teens non-GAAP operating margins due to a customer insourcing decision in CT.
  • Security and Detection is expected to have high-teens revenue growth with low-teens non-GAAP operating margins driven by a strengthening outlook for international high-speed tenders coupled with a higher revenue run-rate for medium-speed systems in the U.S.

Fred Parks commented, “The Ultrasound business assessment completed last quarter will result in a more focused product portfolio with lower operating expenses. We have revised our guidance for fiscal 2017 due partially to lower expected revenues from ultrasound as we work through our restructuring and product optimization efforts. Specifically, our Oncura Veterinary business is expected to have lower revenues in our fiscal fourth quarter. We are currently looking at strategic alternatives for the Oncura Veterinary and Sonic Window businesses.”

The Company expects to provide a revised fiscal 2018 outlook in its earnings release for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017.

The Company does not provide a GAAP operating margin and earnings outlook because it is unable to reliably forecast many of the items that are excluded from the calculation of non-GAAP operating margin and earnings. These items could cause our GAAP operating margins and earnings to differ materially from the corresponding non-GAAP values. For more information, see “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” below.

Quarterly Cash Dividend

On June 1, 2017, Analogic’s Board of Directors declared a $0.10 cash dividend for each common share for its third fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2017. The cash dividend will be payable on June 30, 2017, to shareholders of record on June 16, 2017.

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.

With respect to forwarding-looking measures, we provide an outlook for our non-GAAP operating margins and earnings. We do not provide operating margin or earnings outlook on a GAAP basis. Many of the items that we exclude from our non-GAAP operating margin and earnings calculations, such as amortization of intangibles, acquisition related costs, restructuring expenses, and one-time tax adjustments, are less capable of being controlled or reliably predicted by management. These items could cause our GAAP operating margins and earnings to vary materially from the corresponding Non-GAAP figures presented in our outlook statements.

Forward-Looking Statements
Any statements about future expectations, plans, and prospects for the Company, including statements containing the words “believes,” “anticipates,” “plans,” “expects,” and similar expressions, constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Actual results may differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements as a result of various important factors, including risks relating to product development and commercialization, limited demand for the Company’s products, limited number of customers, risks associated with competition, uncertainties associated with regulatory agency approvals, competitive pricing pressures, downturns in the economy, the risk of potential intellectual property litigation, acquisition related risks, and other factors discussed in our most recent quarterly and annual reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. 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. These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing the Company’s views as of any later date.

Note 2: During fiscal years 2016 and 2017, we incurred acquisition costs related to the Ultrasonix Medical Corporation, PocketSonics, Inc., and Oncura Partners Diagnostics, LLC acquisitions, which we closed on March 2, 2013, September 20, 2013, and January 8, 2016, respectively. Costs included the amortization of intangibles and legal fees of $3 million and $11.6 million for the three and nine months ended April 30, 2017, respectively.  Costs also included the adjustment for a decrease in the contingent consideration accrual of $2.1 million and $10.2 million for the three and nine months ended April 30, 2017, respectively.
Note 3: During the three and nine months ended April 30, 2017, we incurred $8 thousand and $24 thousand, respectively, of pre-tax inquiry-related costs, respectively, associated with the BK matter, as initially disclosed in our annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2011. This matter relates to transactions we identified involving our Danish subsidiary, BK Medical, and certain of its foreign distributors, regarding compliance with the law.
Note 4: During each of the three and nine months ended April 30, 2017, we incurred pre-tax charges of $2.1 million and $2.4 million, respectively, primarily due to severance and related costs for involuntary terminated employees.
Note 5:  As a result of continuing losses in the Oncura business, and the declining business outlooks for the Oncura and Ultrasound businesses, the Company evaluated the net realizability of all of the related assets at December 31, 2016.  As a result, the company recorded a pre-tax asset impairment charges of $73.1 million and $83.5 million for the three and nine months ended April 30, 2017, associated with the write-off of the Oncura and Ultrasound net intangibles and goodwill balances.
Note 6: The quarter and year to date Q3 FY 2017 non-GAAP tax rate differs from the GAAP tax rate primarily due to acquisition related adjustments and stock compensation expenses. The quarter and year to date Q3 FY 2016 non-GAAP tax rates differ from the GAAP tax rates primarily due to the BK Matter Inquiry costs and by acquisition related amortization expense.
