Rochester Medical Reports Fiscal 2013 First Quarter Results

STEWARTVILLE, Minn., Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Rochester Medical Corporation (NASDAQ: ROCM) today announced operating results for its first quarter ended December 31, 2012.

(Logo:  http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20121228/CG34999LOGO)

The Company reported record sales of $17,252,000 for the current quarter compared to $13,973,000 for the first quarter of last year.  The Company also reported net income of $1,012,000 or $.08 per diluted share compared to net loss of ($75,000) or ($.01) per diluted share for the same period last year.

The 23% increase resulted from a 24% increase in Rochester Medical Direct Sales and a 19% increase in Private Label Sales.  The growth percentages were essentially the same on a constant currency basis which assumes current exchange rates for all periods in order to exclude the impact of foreign exchange variations.

Net Income adjusted for certain non-recurring unusual items and certain recurring non-cash expenses, or "Non-GAAP Net Income" for the current quarter was $1,425,000 or $.11 per diluted share compared to Non-GAAP Net Income of $285,000 or $.02 per diluted share for the first quarter of last year.  The increase for the current quarter was primarily due to increased gross profits as a result of higher sales revenues and a reduction in operating expenses related to the sales and marketing of the Foley product line, somewhat offset by higher first quarter administrative expenses related to year end activities.

Commenting on the quarterly results, Rochester Medical's CEO and President Anthony J. Conway said, "Our Direct Sales continue to grow nicely, particularly in the United States and the United Kingdom.   U.S. Direct Sales were up 41% and U.K. Direct Sales were up 26%.  Intermittent Catheter sales, in particular, continue to grow at a very strong pace.

"Cash generated by operations continues to meet our expectations.  This quarter our cash and equivalents increased by $2.3 million.  We anticipate the Company's new manufacturing facility, which is now under construction, will be fully funded from within."

Conway concluded, "We are pleased with the quarterly results and look forward to an active and successful 2013."

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains "forward-looking statements" with the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.  Such statements include, but are not limited to, statements about the future financial and operating results of Rochester Medical.  Such statements are based on currently available information, operating plans and management's expectations about future events and trends.  Such statements inherently involve significant risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those predicted in such forward-looking statements, including the uncertainty of estimated revenues and profits, the uncertainty of current domestic and international economic conditions that could adversely affect the level of demand for the Company's products and increased volatility in foreign exchange rates, the uncertainty of market acceptance of new product introductions, and  our level of success in increasing  Rochester Medical Direct Sales revenue, the uncertainty of gaining new strategic relationships or locating and capitalizing on strategic opportunities, the uncertainty of timing of Private Label Sales revenues (particularly international customers), FDA and other regulatory review and response times, and other risk factors listed from time to time in the Company's SEC reports and filings, including, without limitation, the section entitled "Risk Factors" in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2012, and quarterly reports on Forms 10-Q.  Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date they are made.  The Company undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Rochester Medical has provided Non-GAAP Net Income in addition to net income calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) because management believes Non-GAAP Net Income provides a more consistent basis for comparisons that are not influenced by certain charges and non-cash expenses and are therefore helpful in understanding Rochester Medical's underlying operating results.  Similarly, constant currency represents reported sales with the cost/benefit of currency movements removed.  Management uses the measure to understand the growth of the business on a constant dollar basis, as fluctuations in exchange rates can distort the underlying growth of the business both positively and negatively.  While we recognize that foreign exchange volatility is a reality for a global company, we routinely review our Company performance on a constant dollar basis, and we believe this also allows our shareholders to understand better our Company's growth trends.

Non-GAAP Net Income and constant currency are not measures of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered an alternative to net income or any other measure of performance or liquidity under GAAP. Non-GAAP Net Income and constant currency are not comparable to information provided by other companies. Non-GAAP Net Income and constant currency have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitution for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.  Reconciliations of GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Net Income, and reconciliations of sales under GAAP and sales on a constant currency basis, are presented at the end of this press release.
