Jan 22, 2015, 16:05 ET from ResMed Inc.

SAN DIEGO, Jan. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ResMed Inc. (NYSE: RMD) today announced results for its quarter ended December 31, 2014. Revenue for the quarter was $423.0 million, a 10 percent increase compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2013 (a 14 percent increase on a constant currency basis). Net income was $91.2 million, an increase of 5 percent compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2013. Diluted earnings per share for the quarter were $0.64, an increase of 7 percent compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2013. 

"We are pleased to report strong double-digit revenue growth, demonstrating excellent progress with our new product launches," said Mick Farrell, ResMed's chief executive officer. "We achieved robust commercial performance across all regions, including double-digit growth in the Americas." 

"During the quarter, we continued to roll out the ResMed Air Solutions Platform with the launch of our AirCurve™ 10 series of cloud-connected bilevel devices. We also continued the global roll-out of our new life support ventilation system, the Astral™ platform. We drove consumer awareness of sleep by launching the S+ by ResMed, the world's first non-contact sleep management solution that helps you monitor and improve your sleep health; we also integrated the S+ with Apple HealthKit.  On the legal front, we won a patent infringement lawsuit as we defend our broad portfolio of over 5,000 patents and designs," said Farrell. "We drove top-line revenue growth in the first half of this fiscal year by launching a strong, innovative portfolio of products and solutions. Longer term, we are focused on our strategy to continue to grow our core sleep apnea market, as well as to invest in high-potential growth opportunities: helping patients with COPD, neuromuscular disease, and cardio-respiratory conditions. Our results this quarter show that our solutions continue to meet the needs of our key customer groups, including patients, physicians, healthcare providers and payers. We are executing to our mission: improving patient quality-of-life, lowering healthcare costs, and preventing chronic disease progression."

Analysis of second quarter results In the second quarter of fiscal year 2015, revenue in the Americas was $231.0 million, a 12 percent increase over the prior year's quarter. Revenue in combined Europe and Asia Pacific was $192.0 million, an 8 percent increase compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2013 (a 16 percent increase on a constant currency basis).

Gross margin in the second quarter was 62.2 percent, lower than the prior year, mainly due to an unfavorable product mix and declines in average selling prices, which were partially offset by manufacturing and supply chain improvements.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $122.5 million for the quarter, a 10 percent increase (a 15 percent increase on a constant currency basis) over the quarter ended December 31, 2013. SG&A expenses were 29.0 percent of revenue in the quarter, compared to 29.1 percent in the quarter ended December 31, 2013, primarily due to higher marketing costs associated with recent product releases and an increase in variable employee compensation costs.  

Research and development expenses were $29.3 million for the quarter, or 6.9 percent of revenue. R&D expenses decreased by 1 percent (a 7 percent increase on a constant currency basis) compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2013.

Operating profit for the quarter was $109.1 million and cash flow from operations was $106.0 million.

Amortization of acquired intangible assets was $2.3 million ($1.7 million, net of tax) during the quarter. Stock-based compensation costs incurred during the quarter of $11.7 million ($8.1 million, net of tax) consisted of expenses associated with employee equity grants, and the company's employee stock purchase plan.  

Share repurchase program During the quarter, the company repurchased 667,000 shares at a cost of $33.5 million, as part of its ongoing capital management program. 

Dividend program The ResMed board of directors today declared a quarterly dividend of $0.28 per share. The dividend will have a record date of February 12, 2015, payable on March 19, 2015. The dividend will be paid in U.S. currency to holders of ResMed's common stock trading on the New York Stock Exchange.
