Oct 05, 2015, 16:30 ET from Haemonetics Corporation

BRAINTREE, Mass., Oct. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Haemonetics Corporation (NYSE: HAE) today pre-announced that, based on preliminary information, it expects to report revenue approximating $220 million and adjusted earnings approximating $0.40 per share for its second fiscal 2016 quarter ended September 26, 2015.1   

While the first half was in line with expectations, the Company has revised its previously-issued revenue and adjusted earnings guidance for the full fiscal year 2016.  Revenue is now expected to be within the range of $910 - $920 million, representing 0-1% growth, which is below previous guidance of 4-6% growth.  On a constant currency basis, revenue growth approximating 4% is now forecasted, which is below previous forecasts of 7-9% growth.  Fiscal year 2016 adjusted earnings guidance is revised to a range of $1.65 - $1.75 per share, which is below the previous guidance range of $1.98 - $2.08 per share.  In constant currency adjusted operating income is expected to grow at approximately 4%.

The Company indicated that the shortfall in second half revenue is attributable principally to continuing deterioration in the market for its products in Russia, challenges in the pace of implementation of a contracted market share gain in Japan and re-assessment of the timeline for penetration of recently introduced software products.  Aside from Russia, the Company noted that its growth drivers – Plasma, TEG and Emerging Markets – representing about 60% of consolidated revenue, grew 8% on a constant currency basis in the first half and are expected to continue to grow in the second half of fiscal 2016.

The Company will report its results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2016 on Wednesday, November 4, 2015 in a pre-market press release.  The Company will hold a webcast conference call with investors and analysts to discuss and answer questions about the results at 8:00 am Eastern Time on November 4, 2015.
