For the quarter ended September 30, 2012, net income was $71.3 million, an increase of 41% compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2011. Diluted earnings per share for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 were $0.49, a robust 48% increase compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2011.

SG&A expenses were $98.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, an increase of $4.1 million, or 4% (a 9% increase on a constant currency basis) compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2011. SG&A costs were 28.9% of revenue in the quarter ended September 30, 2012, compared to 29.9% for the quarter ended September 30, 2011. SG&A expenses were favorably impacted by the depreciation of the Australian dollar and euro against the U.S. dollar.

R&D expenses were $27.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, or 8.0% of revenue. R&D expenses increased by 4% (a 6% increase on a constant currency basis) compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2011. R&D expenses were favorably impacted by the depreciation of the Australian dollar against the U.S. dollar.

The company amortized acquired intangibles of $2.6 million ($2.0 million, net of tax) during the quarter ended September 30, 2012. Stock-based compensation costs incurred during the quarter ended September 30, 2012 of $7.9 million ($5.9 million, net of tax) consisted of expenses associated with stock options, restricted stock units, and our employee stock purchase plan.  

Inventory, at $193.2 million, increased by $18.8 million compared to June 30, 2012. Accounts receivable days sales outstanding, at 71 days, increased by three days compared to June 30, 2012.

Additionally, the Board of Directors has today declared a quarterly dividend of $0.17 per share, which will have a record date of November 20, 2012, and be payable on December 18, 2012.  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 14, 2012 for CDI holders and November 16, 2012 for common stock holders. As a result of these differences, ResMed has requested 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 14, 2012 through November 20, 2012, inclusive. 

Peter C. Farrell Ph.D, chairman and chief executive officer, commented, "In the first quarter of fiscal 2013 we showed strong year-over-year growth on the top and bottom lines, and both our flow generator and mask categories did well. Revenue in the Americas increased by 15% to $194.4 million over the prior year's quarter. Revenue outside the Americas was $145.4 million, a 9% increase on a constant currency basis over the prior year's quarter. Operating profit for the September quarter was $80.5 million, cash flow from operations was $78.3 million, while gross margin was an encouraging 61.4%, all demonstrating excellent operating performance. There was also a continuing shift to higher valued flow generators, like S9 Autoset™ and S9 bilevels, and mask sales remained strong.

"Evidence also continues to mount supporting the role of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) therapy for disease prevention, improvement of quality of life and healthcare cost reduction, what I call the Holy Grail of medicine. The following studies provide additional proof of the serious public health concerns relating to untreated SDB:

  • In a ResMed-sponsored study recently published in Population Health Management involving 22,000 members on the Union Pacific Railroad health plan, findings suggest that a low-cost, patient-focused SDB education campaign can improve healthcare outcomes and reduce medical expenses.  First, the study showed that members of the Union Pacific plan who had untreated SDB had higher medical expenses than employees without the disease and, second, it demonstrated that treatment of SDB with positive airway pressure (PAP) therapy reduced medical costs, in-patient costs and hospital admissions.  After the campaign was initiated, the healthcare plan realized cost savings of $4.9 million over a two-year period.
  • A study published in the June issue of the American Journal of Managed Care demonstrated that newly diagnosed SDB patients who initiated PAP therapy had significantly lower hospitalization risk and lower all-cause healthcare costs compared to patients who did not use PAP.
  • In the July issue of the Journal of Cardiac Failure, a study showed that central sleep apnea and severe obstructive sleep apnea are independent risk factors for six-month cardiac hospital readmission.

"All these findings offer tangible data to payors, providers and patients on the beneficial effect on both clinical and economic outcomes of treating sleep-disordered breathing. The bottom line is that screening, diagnosis, treatment and monitoring adherence to therapy for patients presents a significant opportunity to improve health and quality of life, as well as contain healthcare costs."
