Hologic Announces Third Quarter Fiscal 2014 Operating Results

BEDFORD, Mass., July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hologic, Inc. (NASDAQ: HOLX) today announced its results for the third fiscal quarter ended June 28, 2014.

Third Quarter Financial Highlights and Recent Developments:

  • Revenues increased 1.0% to $632.6 million, reflecting operational growth of 0.5% and a positive currency impact of 0.5%, compared to the same period in the prior year.
  • Revenues grew in three of the four business segments.
    • Breast Health revenues grew 3.5%.
    • GYN Surgical revenues grew 3.5%.
    • Skeletal Heath revenues grew 0.9%.
    • Diagnostics revenues declined (1.5)%.
  • Non-GAAP net income was $102.4 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, a decrease of (0.8)% and (3.2)%, respectively, versus prior year, but above the guidance range of $0.33 to $0.34.
  • GAAP net income was $11.3 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $(11.0) million, or $(0.04) per diluted share, versus prior year.
  • The Company is raising its full year 2014 revenue and non-GAAP EPS guidance.
  • Robert W. McMahon appointed Chief Financial Officer.
  • Publication in JAMA of "Breast Cancer Screening Using Tomosynthesis in Combination with Digital Mammography," discussing the largest study to date reviewing Hologic's 3D Mammography, which demonstrated a 41% increase in the detection of invasive cancers, a 29% increase in detection of all breast cancers, and 15% decrease in recalls for additional imaging when compared with conventional digital mammography.
  • Amended license agreement with Roka Bioscience, Inc. resulting in total up-front payments of approximately $20 million in cash and common stock to be paid to Hologic during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014.

"Our fiscal third quarter results demonstrate the progress we are making in our turnaround efforts," said Stephen MacMillan, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Key contributors were the performance of our 3D mammography business, service associated with our large and growing installed base of digital mammography systems, our molecular diagnostics business lines, and our surgical business. With the landmark publication in JAMA of the first-large scale U.S. study demonstrating the benefits of our 3D mammography technology, we are now even more confident that our 3D mammography has very bright prospects and will be a significant driver of value creation for Hologic shareholders."

Mr. MacMillan continued, "We also strengthened our senior management team with the appointments of four new members of the senior leadership team, most recently Bob McMahon as CFO and Pete Valenti as Division President, Breast and Skeletal Health. We now have the right team in place to execute our strategy and are encouraged by our progress and positive results to date as we return to a path of sustainable, organic growth."

Third Quarter Fiscal 2014 Revenue Overview by Segment (Compared to the Third Quarter Fiscal 2013):

  • Diagnostics revenues of $293.1 million decreased (1.5)%, primarily due to decreases in ThinPrep pap test sales in the U.S. due to interval expansion and to a lesser extent, blood screening revenues. Partially offsetting these declines was a 7.0% increase in the Company's molecular diagnostics franchise, primarily from the Company's Aptima product line.
  • Breast Health revenues of $238.0 million grew 3.5%. During the quarter, the Company continued to experience strong growth in sales of 3D mammography systems, as well as continued service revenue growth from the growing installed base of digital mammography systems. Partially offsetting these increases was the expected overall sales decline of 2D systems as customers continued to move to the Company's 3D systems.
  • GYN Surgical revenues of $78.5 million grew 3.5%, driven by strong growth in MyoSure system sales, partially offset by slower declines of NovaSure system sales in the U.S.
  • Skeletal Health revenues of $23.0 million grew 0.9%.

Financial Guidance:

The Company's guidance includes current operations, including revenues from its approved and cleared products. This guidance does not include the effects of any future stock repurchases, acquisitions, divestitures or additional voluntary debt payments that may occur during fiscal 2014.

Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2014 (Quarter Ending September 27, 2014):

  • The Company expects fourth quarter fiscal 2014 revenues of $630 million to $640 million, which excludes the one-time revenue contribution of approximately $20 million resulting from the amendment to the Company's license agreement with Roka Bioscience, Inc.
  • The Company expects non-GAAP EPS of $0.36 to $0.37. This excludes a $0.05 favorable impact due to the one-time revenue contribution of approximately $20 million.
  • Including the one-time revenue contribution of approximately $20 million, the Company expects revenues of $650 million to $660 million and non-GAAP EPS of $0.41 to $0.42.

Fiscal 2014 (Year Ending September 27, 2014):

Based on the third quarter fiscal 2014 results and improved outlook for the fourth quarter, the Company is raising its fiscal 2014 revenue and EPS guidance.

  • The Company is raising its fiscal 2014 revenue guidance to a range of $2.50 billion to $2.51 billion (from $2.46 billion to $2.49 billion provided on April 30, 2014). This excludes the one-time revenue contribution of approximately $20 million.
  • The Company is raising its fiscal 2014 non-GAAP EPS guidance to a range of $1.44 to $1.45 (as compared to $1.37 to $1.40 provided on April 30, 2014). This excludes a $0.05 favorable impact from the one-time revenue contribution of approximately $20 million.
  • Including the one-time revenue contribution of approximately $20 million, the Company expects revenues of $2.52 billion to $2.53 billion and non-GAAP EPS of $1.49 to $1.50.

Explanatory Notes to Reconciliations:

(1) To primarily reflect a fair value adjustment relating to contingent revenue earned and received post acquisition under the Company's blood screening collaboration, which was eliminated under purchase accounting. 
(2) Non-GAAP earnings per share was calculated based on 279,205 and 272,531 weighted average diluted shares outstanding for the three months ended June 28, 2014 and June 29, 2013, respectively, and 277,074 and 271,184 weighted average diluted shares outstanding for the nine months ended June 28, 2014 and June 29, 2013, respectively. 
(3) To reflect a non-cash charge attributable to the amortization of intangible assets. 
(4) To reflect a charge to operating expenses attributable to contingent consideration related to certain of the Company's acquisitions.
(5) To reflect certain non-cash interest expense related to the Company's convertible notes. 
(6) To reflect certain costs associated with the Company's acquisition(s) and integration plans, which primarily include retention costs, transfer costs, and asset impairments, as well as restructuring and divestiture charges. 
(7) To reflect non-cash fair value adjustments for: (i) additional depreciation expense in all periods presented related to the fair value write-up of fixed assets acquired from Gen-Probe; and (ii) write-up of inventory acquired from Gen-Probe and sold during the prior year period. 
(8) To reflect a net gain resulting from a cash payment received in final settlement of an agreement, net of costs associated with this transaction.
(9)  To reflect a non-cash loss related to Credit Agreement amendments for those creditors who opted not to participate in the refinancing or for partial extinguishment related to voluntary prepayments, as well as related third-party transaction costs. 
(10) To reflect a non-cash impairment charge on certain of the Company's intangible assets related to the MRI breast coils product line to reflect fair value in fiscal 2014, and other charges related to developed technology in fiscal 2013. 
(11) To reflect the net impact from miscellaneous transactions during the period. 
(12) To reflect an estimated annual effective tax rate of 34.75% for the three and nine months ended June 28, 2014 and an annual effective tax rate of 32.0% for the three and nine months ended June 29, 2013 on a non-GAAP basis. The actual rate for the three months ended June 28, 2014 was 35.2% as a result of a change in the estimated rate for the year (from 34.5% to 34.75%).

Future Non-GAAP Adjustments:

Future GAAP EPS may be affected by changes in ongoing assumptions and judgments relating to the Company's acquired businesses, and may also be affected by nonrecurring, unusual or unanticipated charges, expenses or gains, which are excluded in the calculation of the Company's non-GAAP EPS guidance as described in this press release. It is therefore not practicable to reconcile non-GAAP EPS guidance to the most comparable GAAP measure.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

The Company has presented the following non-GAAP financial measures in this press release: revenues; net income; EPS; and adjusted EBITDA. The Company defines its non-GAAP revenues to primarily include contingent revenue earned post-acquisition under the blood screening collaboration which was eliminated under purchase accounting. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as its non-GAAP net income plus net interest expense, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization expense included in its non-GAAP net income. The Company defines its non-GAAP net income and EPS to exclude: (i) the amortization of intangible assets; (ii) acquisition-related charges and effects, such as charges for contingent consideration, transaction costs, integration costs including retention, and credits and/ or charges associated with the write-up of acquired inventory and fixed assets to fair value, and the effect of a reduction in revenue primarily related to contingent revenue under the blood screening collaboration, described above; (iii) non-cash interest expense related to amortization of the debt discount for convertible debt securities; (iv) restructuring and divestiture charges; (v) non-cash debt extinguishment losses and related transaction costs; (vi) litigation settlement charges (benefits); (vii) other-than-temporary impairment losses on investments; (viii) other one-time, nonrecurring, unusual or infrequent charges, expenses or gains that may not be indicative of the Company's core business results; and (ix) income taxes related to such adjustments.

The Company believes the use of non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors by eliminating certain of the more significant effects of its acquisitions and related activities, non-cash charges resulting from the application of GAAP to convertible debt instruments with cash settlement features, charges related to debt extinguishment losses, investment impairments, litigation settlements, and restructuring and divestiture initiatives. These non-GAAP measures also reflect how Hologic manages its businesses internally. In addition to the adjustments set forth in the calculation of the Company's non-GAAP net income and EPS, its adjusted EBITDA eliminates the effects of financing, income taxes and the accounting effects of capital spending. As with the items eliminated in its calculation of non-GAAP net income, these items may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to the overall operating performance of a company's business. When analyzing the Company's operating performance, investors should not consider these non-GAAP financial measures as a substitute for net income prepared in accordance with GAAP.
