SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Accuray Incorporated (NASDAQ: ARAY) announced today preliminary product orders and revenues for the second quarter of fiscal 2016, which ended on December 31, 2015. As a result of the expected second quarter results and current business trends, management today reaffirmed guidance for FY 2016.

The preliminary results for the second fiscal quarter include:

  • Gross product orders are expected to be approximately $67 million.
  • Single and dual vault sites comprised more than 50 percent of total TomoTherapy® System orders; replacement orders to existing accounts comprised approximately 15 percent of all system orders.
  • Age-outs and cancellations are expected to be approximately $19 million and $3 million, respectively. 
  • Net orders are expected to be approximately $43 million after age-outs, cancellations and foreign currency.
  • Revenue is expected to be approximately $107.5 million, an increase of 10 percent year-over-year or 13 percent on a constant currency basis.
  • Converted four gross product orders from backlog to revenue in China during the quarter.
  • Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments increased by approximately $3 million in the second quarter and by approximately $12 million during the first half of fiscal 2016, representing a $33 million year-over-year improvement.
  • The Company reaffirmed its financial guidance for full year fiscal 2016 as follows: total revenue of $395 million to $410 million, gross orders of approximately $295 million and adjusted EBITDA of $25 million to $35 million.  The Company last provided guidance on October 29, 2015.

"We are continuing to build momentum in the marketplace through solid execution of our key commercial initiatives. During the quarter, we successfully converted competitive sites to Accuray Systems and we generated a growing number of orders through replacement sales to our existing installed customer base. Most importantly, we are displaying improved quarter to quarter consistency in our business," said Joshua H. Levine, president and chief executive officer of Accuray.  "Our team delivered gross orders within our expectations and record quarterly revenue performance.  Additionally, our Incise™ Multileaf Collimator continues to drive CyberKnife® System orders and was included in over 80 percent of our new CyberKnife System orders." 

The above information is preliminary and subject to completion of quarter-end financial reporting processes and reviews.  Accuray expects to release final second quarter financial results after the market close on January 28, 2016.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company has supplemented its GAAP net loss with a non-GAAP measure of adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation ("adjusted EBITDA").  Management believes that this non-GAAP financial measure provides useful supplemental information to management and investors regarding the performance of the Company and facilitates a more meaningful comparison of results for current periods with previous operating results.  A reconciliation of GAAP net loss (the most directly comparable GAAP measure) to non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA is provided in the schedule below.

The Company presents certain measures, such as period-over-period gross product order growth, on a constant currency basis, which excludes the effects of foreign currency translation.  Due to the continuing strengthening of the U.S. dollar against foreign currencies and the overall variability of foreign exchange rates from period to period, management uses these measures on a constant currency basis to evaluate period-over-period operating performance.  Measures presented on a constant currency basis are calculated by translating current period results at prior period monthly average exchange rates.

There are limitations in using these non-GAAP financial measures because they are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.  These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financial measures.  Investors and potential investors should consider non-GAAP financial measures only in conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.
