SG&A expenses were $101.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, an increase of $3.0 million, or 3% (a 4% increase on a constant currency basis) compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2012. SG&A costs were 28.3% of revenue in the quarter ended September 30, 2013, compared to 28.9% for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.  SG&A expenses were favorably impacted by the depreciation of the Australian dollar against the U.S. dollar.

R&D expenses were $27.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, or 7.7% of revenue. R&D expenses increased by 1% (a 9% increase on a constant currency basis) compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2012. R&D expenses were favorably impacted by the depreciation of the Australian dollar against the U.S. dollar.

Amortization of acquired intangibles totaled $2.4 million ($1.8 million, net of tax) during the quarter ended September 30, 2013. Stock-based compensation costs incurred during the quarter ended September 30, 2013 of $10.8 million ($8.8 million, net of tax) consisted of expenses associated with stock options, restricted stock units, and our employee stock purchase plan.  

Mick Farrell, chief executive officer, commented, "In the first quarter of fiscal 2014, revenue in the Americas increased by 4% over the prior year's quarter, to $201.5 million. Revenue outside the Americas was $156.2 million, a 5% increase on a constant currency basis, over the prior year's quarter.  Global revenue growth was driven primarily by sales of higher valued flow generators, like our S9 AutoSet™ and S9™ bilevels, while mask spares and accessories did particularly well this quarter. Operating profit for the September quarter was $96.9 million, cash flow from operations was $90.4 million, while gross margin increased to 63.7%, all demonstrating excellent operating performance.

"We continued to face a tough competitive product cycle this quarter.  We have only just released our new mask products, but we were encouraged by their early sales.  The Quattro™ Air is on its way to being one of the best mask launches ever. The Swift™ FX Nano, which was already selling well in Europe, was just launched in the U.S. in September with good reception. We have a rich pipeline of products scheduled for introduction over the course of this fiscal year, providing us with plenty of opportunities for robust growth ahead.

"The opportunities in sleep and respiratory care remain attractive; we continue to provide our customers with the right solutions to better manage their businesses while providing high quality products to improve compliance and patient care.  We are focused on continuing to improve the quality of life for patients who suffer from sleep-disordered breathing and its related co-morbidities, such as cardiology and diabetes; respiratory disorders, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; preventing disease progression; and saving both in-patient and out-patient costs."

Additionally, the board of directors has today declared a quarterly dividend of $0.25 per share, which will have a record date of November 19, 2013, and be payable on December 18, 2013.  The dividend will be paid in U.S. currency to holders of ResMed's common stock trading on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).  Holders of Chess Depositary Instruments (CDIs) trading on the Australian Securities Exchange, will receive an equivalent amount in Australian currency, based on the exchange rate on the record date, and reflecting the 10:1 ratio between CDIs and NYSE shares.  Because the two exchanges have different settlement and transfer procedures, the ex-dividend periods before the record date will be different for common stock and for CDIs.  The ex-dividend date will be November 13, 2013 for CDI holders and November 15, 2013 for common stock holders. As a result of these differences, ResMed has been granted a waiver from the ASX's settlement operating rules, which will allow ResMed to defer processing conversions between its common stock and CDI registers from November 13, 2013 through November 19, 2013, inclusive.
