BATESVILLE, Ind., April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hill-Rom Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: HRC) announced financial results for its fiscal second quarter ended March 31, 2013 and provided its third quarter and updated full year outlook.  Adjusted earnings per diluted share of $0.49 were in line with the Company's guidance, but down 17 percent from $0.59 in the prior year as declines in the organic business and imposition of the medical device tax were partially offset by acquisition earnings.  Reported earnings per diluted share decreased to $0.37 from $0.40 in the prior year.   Adjustments to reported earnings and EBITDA are detailed in the reconciliation schedules provided.

Hill-Rom's quarterly revenue was $426 million, on both a reported and constant currency basis, a 3 percent increase compared to last year in each case.  Excluding the impact of acquisitions, revenue declined approximately 6 percent.  Domestic revenue was $274 million, up 5 percent, while revenue outside the United States decreased 1 percent to $152 million

Management Comments

"Although revenue was down slightly from our expectations in the face of continued market uncertainty, we are pleased that we were able to deliver adjusted earnings in line with our guidance through disciplined management of our cost structure," stated John Greisch, President and CEO.  "As demonstrated by our recent actions, we are committed to taking the necessary steps to improve margins for the long term and maintain our strong, consistent cash flow."

Financial and Operational Highlights

-- Second quarter revenue highlights include:

-- North America.  North America revenue declined 6 percent to $240 million.  Capital sales decreased 7 percent due primarily to a 9 percent decline in U.S. Patient Support Systems revenue.  Rental revenue declined 5 percent due primarily to our exit from certain home care categories. 

-- International.  International segment revenue, on both a reported and constant currency basis, decreased 1 percent to $125 million due to declines in capital sales in Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Latin America.  This was partially offset by the inclusion of Volker for the full quarter in 2013.

-- Surgical/Respiratory Care.  Surgical/Respiratory Care revenue increased 81 percent to $61 million, due to the addition of the Aspen business.  Excluding Aspen, segment revenue decreased 4 percent on lower respiratory care revenues.

-- Year to date operating cash flow was $113 million, compared to $124 million in the prior year, down primarily on lower net income.

-- Year to date adjusted EBITDA was $150 million, compared to $157 million in the prior year.

-- Year to date share repurchases amounted to approximately $44 million.

-- During the quarter, the Company implemented a restructuring action in order to reduce fixed costs and streamline operations. The action included the elimination of approximately 100 positions, consolidation of select operations and a product discontinuation.  The Company anticipates incurring pre-tax charges in connection with the restructuring totaling approximately $5 to $7 million during 2013, of which $3 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, was recorded in the second quarter.  The restructuring action is anticipated to yield annualized savings of approximately $8 million after full implementation.

Please see the attached schedules for additional information, including condensed financial information, summary balance sheet, cash flow statement and reconciliations of GAAP to adjusted financial measures. 

For a more complete review of Hill-Rom's results, please refer to our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 to be filed later this week.

Financial Guidance Summary

For fiscal 2013, Hill-Rom now expects reported revenue growth of 5 to 6 percent compared to prior guidance of 7 to 8 percent.  This reflects:

  • organic constant currency revenue decline of 3 to 4 percent;
  • no material currency impact at current rates; and
  • incremental revenue from fiscal 2012 acquisitions of approximately $145 million.

For the full year, adjusted earnings per diluted share are now expected to be $2.03 to $2.09 compared to prior guidance of $2.01 to $2.11.

Cash flow from operations for the full year is unchanged and is expected to be $270 to $280 million.  Adjusted EBITDA is now expected to be $315 to $320 million compared to prior guidance of $315 to $325 million.

For the third quarter of fiscal 2013, Hill-Rom expects reported revenue growth of 5 to 6 percent.  This reflects:

  • organic constant currency revenue decline of approximately 3 percent;
  • no material currency impact at current rates; and
  • incremental revenue from fiscal 2012 acquisitions of approximately $35 million

Adjusted earnings per diluted share are expected to be $0.49 to $0.51 for the quarter. 

Additional assumptions and discussion will be provided during the Company's conference call to be held tomorrow morning.  Information to access the webcast is provided below.

Discussion of Adjusted Financial Measures

Hill-Rom Holdings, Inc. routinely provides earnings per share results and guidance on an adjusted basis because the Company's management believes that the presentation provides useful information to investors.  In addition, we are providing adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (adjusted EBITDA) for the same reason.  These measures exclude strategic developments, special charges or other unusual events.  Such items may be highly variable, difficult to predict and of a size that sometimes have substantial impact on the Company's reported operations for a period. Often, prospective quantification of such items is not feasible.  Management uses these measures internally for planning, forecasting and evaluating the performance of the business. Investors should consider non-GAAP measures in addition to, not as a substitute for, or as superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Reconciliations of GAAP measures to adjusted measures appear in the financial tables of this release.
