Analogic Announces Results for the First Quarter ended October 31, 2016 and Declares Quarterly Cash Dividend

Peabody, Massachusetts, UNITED STATES

Revenue Growth Driven by Security and Medical Imaging;
Profitability Affected by Segment Mix

PEABODY, Mass., Dec. 06, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Analogic Corporation (Nasdaq:ALOG), enabling the world's medical imaging and aviation security technology, today announced results for its first quarter ended October 31, 2016.    

Highlights during the first quarter (comparisons are against Q1 of fiscal 2016) included:

  • Revenue of $121.1 million, up 5%
  • Gross margin of 43%, down 2 pts. 
  • GAAP operating margin of 3%; Non-GAAP operating margin of 6%
  • GAAP diluted EPS of $0.20; Non-GAAP diluted EPS of $0.43
  • Operating cash flow of $27 million

Revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 was $121.1 million, an increase of 5% compared with revenue of $114.9 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 was $2.5 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared with net income of $1.4 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. Included in GAAP net income and earnings per share is $0.10 per diluted share associated with CEO transition expenses.

Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 was $5.4 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, compared with $7.0 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, in the prior year's first quarter. Included in non-GAAP net income and earnings per share is $0.10 per diluted share associated with CEO transition expenses. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is included as an attachment to this press release.

Fred Parks, president and CEO, commented, “Our overall revenue for the first quarter came in as expected whereas operating profit was slightly lower due to segment mix. Security and Medical Imaging grew nicely during the quarter driven by increased market demand whereas Ultrasound growth was negatively impacted by production delays with our general imaging product for our technology partner as well as lower OEM probe revenue as compared with last year. On a positive note, our operating cash flow increased to $27 million.”

“I see significant growth opportunities for Analogic and believe our earnings will benefit from strict attention to our cost structure. Over the past several years the Company has initiated numerous growth activities but has achieved inconsistent results.  My early diagnosis would indicate that focus would serve us well, better prioritizing opportunities to achieve consistent profitable growth.”

Parks continued, “After my initial assessment, the Medical Imaging and Security businesses are solid and will match expectations for the year. In Ultrasound, revenue should be flat to slightly up for the full year. Over the coming quarters we will be focusing on our ultrasound portfolio and its associated cost structure to achieve improving and consistent profitability while positioning the business for growth.” 

Segment Revenues for the First Quarter

Medical Imaging segment revenue was $67.2 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2017, up 3% from revenue of $64.9 million in the same period of fiscal 2016, primarily due to favorability of MR shipments offset by CT and Mammography.

Direct Ultrasound revenue was up 7% for the quarter compared with last year due to strong sales in China and North America. Overall, Ultrasound segment revenue was $35.8 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2017, down 2% from revenue of $36.7 million in the same period of fiscal 2016, due to the challenging OEM probe revenue comparison partially offset by growth in China and North America in urology and surgery.

Security and Detection segment revenue was $18.1 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2017, up 36% from revenue of $13.3 million in the same period of fiscal 2016 driven by increased volume across all products.

Quarterly Cash Dividend   

On December 1, 2016, Analogic's Board of Directors declared a $0.10 cash dividend for each common share for its first fiscal quarter ended October 31, 2016. The cash dividend will be payable on December 30, 2016, to shareholders of record on December 16, 2016.

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.

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.

Costs included the amortization of intangibles and legal fees of $2.2 million for the three months ended October 31, 2016.  
Note 3: During the three months ended October 31, 2016, we incurred $4 thousand 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 5: The Q1 FY 2017 non-GAAP tax rate differs from the GAAP tax rate primarily due to acquisition related amortization.  Our Q1 FY 2016 GAAP tax rate was 10.1%, while our non-GAAP rate for the same period was 24.9%.  The difference was driven by the BK matter and by acquisition related amortization expense.
