- Revenue increased 3 percent to $915 million on a reported and constant currency basis
- GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS) from continuing operations reached $0.42 and increased 5 percent on an adjusted basis to $0.44

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CareFusion Corp. (NYSE: CFN), a leading, global medical technology company, today reported results for the three and six months ended Dec. 31, 2011.
"Our second quarter results were led by strong performance across the Medical Systems segment, with our three major businesses achieving positive gains and positioning us well for the second half of the year," said Kieran Gallahue, chairman and CEO. "These results were partially offset by our performance in the Procedural Solutions segment, as we indicated in our preliminary earnings report last month. We continue to believe that our highly differentiated Procedural Solutions products will grow faster than the market and remain meaningful contributors to our long-term performance.
"We continued to make good progress on our efforts to build our foundation and to invest in areas that will help simplify how we do business so we can expand margins and accelerate top-line growth over the long term. We remain committed to our long-term growth targets and are confident we will make progress against these goals this fiscal year."
Second Quarter Results
The company reported revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 of $915 million, compared to $886 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2011, an increase of 3 percent on a reported and constant currency basis.
Operating income was $143 million, an increase of 17 percent compared to $122 million in the prior year period. Excluding nonrecurring items, adjusted operating income for the second quarter was unchanged at $150 million.
Operating expenses totaled $314 million in the second quarter. Excluding nonrecurring items, adjusted operating expenses were $307 million, an increase of 4 percent over the prior year period, primarily driven by operating expenses from Rowa Technologies, which the company acquired in August 2011. In addition, the company increased investments in research and development during the quarter and benefited from ongoing cost-savings initiatives in the company's administrative support functions.
The company reported income from continuing operations in the second quarter of $95 million, or $0.42 per diluted share. Adjusted income from continuing operations increased 4 percent from the prior year period to $99 million, or $0.44 per diluted share. The adjusted tax rate was 25.2 percent for the second quarter.
Second quarter revenue for the Medical Systems segment increased 9 percent from the prior year period on a reported and constant currency basis to $571 million, driven by strong sales across the segment. The company's Dispensing Technologies business, which grew in part from a contribution from the first-quarter acquisition of Rowa Technologies, also delivered its second strongest first-half organic revenue and committed contract performance in its history. The Infusion Systems business also achieved solid revenue growth, driven by installations of a record number of competitive channels during the quarter.
The revenue growth resulted in higher segment profit for the quarter, which increased 27 percent from the prior year period to $121 million. Adjusted segment profit increased 12 percent from the prior year period to $124 million.
Second quarter revenue for the Procedural Solutions segment decreased 5 percent from the prior year period on a reported and constant currency basis. The decrease was driven, in part, by the loss of sales from divesting the company's OnSite Services business in March 2011. Net of the OnSite Services business divestiture, segment revenues decreased 2 percent from the prior year period. The segment results were also affected by decreased sales of respiratory disposables products in the Specialty Disposables business.
The revenue decline led to a decrease in segment profit of 19 percent from the prior year period to $22 million, and adjusted segment profit decreased 33 percent to $26 million.
For the first six months of fiscal 2012, revenue increased 4 percent from the prior year period to $1.76 billion. Operating income increased to $251 million from $201 million in the prior year period. Income from continuing operations was $162 million, or $0.72 per diluted share. Adjusted income from continuing operations increased 10 percent from the prior year period to $175 million, or $0.78 per diluted share.
Operating expenses in the first six months totaled $633 million, or $615 million on an adjusted basis.
Segment results for the six months ended Dec. 31, 2011 and 2010 are as follows:

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures by CareFusion Corporation
This CareFusion news release presents non-GAAP financial measures that exclude certain amounts, as follows: "adjusted operating expenses" and "adjusted operating income", which exclude nonrecurring items primarily related to the spinoff and nonrecurring restructuring and acquisition integration charges; "adjusted income from continuing operations", "adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations" and "adjusted tax rate", which exclude nonrecurring items primarily related to the spinoff, nonrecurring restructuring and acquisition integration charges and nonrecurring tax items; and "adjusted segment profit", which excludes nonrecurring items primarily related to the spinoff and nonrecurring restructuring and acquisition integration charges.
The most directly comparable measure for these non-GAAP financial measures are operating expenses, operating income, income from continuing operations, diluted earnings per share from continuing operations, tax rate, and segment profit (the most comparable GAAP measures). The company has included below unaudited adjusted financial information for the quarters and six months ended Dec. 31, 2011 and 2010, which includes a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures.
In addition, CareFusion presents the non-GAAP financial measure "adjusted income from continuing operations per diluted share" on a forward-looking basis. CareFusion is unable to provide a quantitative reconciliation of this forward-looking non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP measure, because the company cannot reliably forecast restructuring and acquisition integration costs, and other nonrecurring costs. Please note that the unavailable reconciling items could significantly impact CareFusion's future financial results. A discussion of the reasons why management believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to investors regarding CareFusion's financial condition and results of operations is included as Exhibit 99.3 to CareFusion's report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Feb. 2, 2012.
