Monday, May 02, 2011

Hologic Announces Second Quarter Fiscal 2011 Operating Results16:01 EDT Monday, May 02, 2011Revenues and Operating Performance Exceed GuidanceBEDFORD, Mass., May 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Hologic, Inc. (Hologic or the Company) (Nasdaq: HOLX), a leading developer, manufacturer and supplier of premium diagnostics products, medical imaging systems and surgical products dedicated to serving the healthcare needs of women, today announced its results for the second fiscal quarter ended March 26, 2011. Highlights of the quarter include:Revenues of $438.7 million.Net income was $82.4 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).Non-GAAP adjusted net income was $78.9 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, and adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) was $146.2 million. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is included as an attachment to this press release.Approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on February 11, 2011 of our Dimensions three-dimensional (3D) digital breast tomosynthesis system.Acquisition of Interlace Medical, Inc. on January 6, 2011, the developer, manufacturer and supplier of the MyoSure hysteroscopic uterine fibroid tissue removal system.Signing of two definitive agreements on January 14, 2011 and February 22, 2011 to acquire a medical equipment manufacturer and an international distributor of medical products, respectively. The closings of the acquisitions are subject to regulatory approvals and other conditions.Second quarter fiscal 2011 revenues totaled $438.7 million, an increase of 4.9% compared to revenues of $418.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2010. The increase was primarily attributable to: (i) growth in Breast Health revenues of $16.4 million, or 8.7%, driven by a $12.7 million, or 22.6%, increase in service revenue primarily related to our increased installed base of digital mammography systems; (ii) an increase in GYN Surgical revenues of $4.4 million, or 6.5%, primarily related to growth in sales of our Adiana permanent contraception system (Adiana); and (iii) an increase in Skeletal Health revenues of $1.5 million, or 7.1%, primarily due to an increase in bone densitometry sales. Slightly offsetting these increases was a decrease in Diagnostics revenues of $1.7 million, or 1.2%, primarily due to a decline in ThinPrep revenues that was partially offset by an increase in revenues from our Cervista HPV tests.For the second quarter of fiscal 2011, Hologic reported net income of $82.4 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, compared with net income of $20.6 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, in the second quarter of fiscal 2010. The Company's non-GAAP adjusted net income increased 3.8% to $78.9 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, in the second quarter of fiscal 2011 compared to $76.0 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, for the same period in the prior year. The Company's fiscal 2011 and 2010 second quarter non-GAAP adjusted net income primarily excludes: (i) a charge of $59.0 million and $57.1 million, respectively, attributable to the amortization of intangible assets; and (ii) a non-cash interest expense charge of $17.8 million and $18.1 million, respectively, related to the Company's Convertible Notes. The Company's fiscal 2011 second quarter non-GAAP adjusted net income also excludes: (i) an $84.5 million net gain, included as a credit within operating expenses, related to our agreement to sell the rights of the Makena (formerly Gestiva) assets to KV Pharmaceutical Company upon FDA approval; (ii) a $5.3 million credit to operating expenses attributable to the net adjustment to record contingent consideration at fair value relating to the Sentinelle Medical, Inc. (Sentinelle) and Interlace Medical, Inc. (Interlace) acquisitions; and (iii) $3.7 million of acquisition-related costs and charges. The Company's fiscal 2010 second quarter non-GAAP adjusted net income also primarily excludes a charge of $12.5 million related to a legal settlement. For the six months ended March 26, 2011, revenues totaled $871.2 million, an increase of 4.9% compared to revenues of $830.6 million in the six months ended March 27, 2010. The increase was primarily attributable to: (i) growth in Breast Health revenues of $32.7 million, or 8.9%, driven by a $25.4 million, or 23.4%, increase in service revenue primarily related to our increased installed base of digital mammography systems; (ii) an increase in GYN Surgical revenues of $8.6 million, or 6.2%, primarily related to growth in sales of the Adiana system; and (iii) an increase in Skeletal Health revenues of $2.4 million, or 5.7%, due to an increase in bone densitometry sales. Slightly offsetting these increases was a decrease in Diagnostics revenues of $3.0 million, or 1.1%, reflecting a decrease in ThinPrep revenues that was partially offset by an increase in revenues from our Cervista HPV tests.For the six months ended March 26, 2011, Hologic reported net income of $93.4 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, compared with net income of $46.7 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, in the six months ended March 27, 2010. The Company's non-GAAP adjusted net income increased 5.5% to $158.7 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, in the six months ended March 26, 2011 compared to $150.5 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, for the same period in the prior year. The Company's non-GAAP adjusted net income for the first six months of fiscal 2011 and 2010 primarily excludes: (i) a charge of $115.6 million and $114.2 million, respectively, attributable to the amortization of intangible assets; and (ii) a non-cash interest expense charge of $36.2 million and $35.9 million, respectively, related to the Company's Convertible Notes. The Company's non-GAAP adjusted net income for the first six months of fiscal 2011 also primarily excludes: (i) an $84.5 million net gain on the sale of intellectual property; (ii) a $29.9 million non-cash loss on the exchange of Convertible Notes in the first quarter; (iii) a $4.2 million credit to operating expenses attributable to the net adjustment to record contingent consideration at fair value relating to the Sentinelle and Interlace acquisitions; and (iv) $5.7 million of acquisition-related costs and charges. The Company's non-GAAP adjusted net income for the first six months of fiscal 2010 also primarily excludes a charge of $12.5 million related to a legal settlement.Non-GAAP adjusted net income, non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share (non-GAAP adjusted EPS), and adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures. The Company's definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures, and the reconciliations of these measures to the Company's comparable GAAP financial measures for the periods presented, are set forth in the supplemental information attached to this press release. When analyzing the Company's operating performance, investors should not consider these non-GAAP measures as a substitute for the comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. As of March 26, 2011, total backlog for all products was $283.4 million."We had a strong quarter, resulting in a solid first half of fiscal 2011," said Rob Cascella, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Once again, revenues and operating performance exceeded our guidance. We pioneered the next-generation of digital mammography with the recent FDA approval of our Dimensions 3D system, the first 3D mammography system to receive approval. We are very excited to be able to offer women this ground-breaking imaging technology and we continue to gain very nice traction in sales of both our 2D and 3D Dimensions systems. In addition, we reported a record quarter in our breast biopsy business. Lastly, we are thrilled to have closed on our acquisition of Interlace Medical, adding MyoSure to our strong portfolio of GYN Surgical products."Second quarter fiscal 2011 revenue overview by segment: Breast Health revenues, which include the Company's mammography, Computer-Aided Detection (CAD), breast biopsy, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) breast coil, MammoSite and AEG products, increased to $205.9 million for the second quarter compared to $189.5 million for the same period in fiscal 2010, an increase of 8.7%, primarily due to the increases in revenues from: (i) service related to our increased installed base of digital mammography systems; (ii) our breast biopsy business led by Eviva sales; and (iii) the inclusion of Sentinelle, which we acquired in August 2010. Diagnostic revenues, which include the Company's ThinPrep products, Rapid Fetal Fibronectin test, Cervista HPV tests, and other Molecular Diagnostics products, totaled $138.2 million for the second quarter compared to $140.0 million for the same period of fiscal 2010, a slight decrease of 1.2%. Our Cervista HPV tests showed a solid increase, however we continued to experience a year-over-year reduction in ThinPrep volume. We believe the lower ThinPrep volume when compared to the second quarter of the prior year primarily reflected the continued decline in year-over-year patient visits. GYN Surgical revenues, which include the Company's NovaSure endometrial ablation system (NovaSure), Adiana system, and MyoSure hysteroscopic tissue removal system (MyoSure), totaled $71.5 million for the second quarter compared to $67.1 million for the same period of fiscal 2010, an increase of 6.5%. This increase was primarily due to growth in sales of Adiana systems and, to a lesser extent, the inclusion of MyoSure revenues from the date of acquisition (January 6, 2011).Skeletal Health revenues, which substantially include the Company's osteoporosis assessment and mini C-arm product lines, totaled $23.1 million for the second quarter compared to $21.5 million for the same period of fiscal 2010, an increase of 7.1%. This increase was primarily the result of an increase in bone densitometry unit sales.FDA Approval Received for First 3D Digital Mammography System:On February 11, 2011, the Company received approval from the FDA for its Dimensions 3D digital breast tomosynthesis system. Our Dimensions 3D system is a new method for breast cancer screening and diagnosis that was determined by the FDA to be superior to two-dimensional digital mammography for both screening and diagnostics. The combination of measurable improvements in accuracy and detection, and improved sensitivity, makes the Dimensions 3D system a superior system versus conventional digital mammography systems. The Company began to sell its Dimensions 3D system in the United States immediately following FDA approval. The Company already had been selling Dimensions 3D outside of the United States in regions such as Canada, Europe, Latin America and Asia. Acquisition of Interlace Medical, Inc.:On January 6, 2011, the Company acquired Interlace, the developer, manufacturer and supplier of the MyoSure system, headquartered in Framingham, Massachusetts. The MyoSure system is a new and innovative treatment that is designed to provide incision-less, fast and safe removal of intracavitary fibroids and polyps and effective relief of the associated abnormal uterine bleeding symptoms. The MyoSure system provides a treatment option for women seeking to preserve uterine form and function. The purchase price for the transaction was $126.8 million, plus two annual contingent payments. The contingent payments are payable in cash and calculated based upon a multiple of the incremental revenue growth. Definitive Agreements to Acquire a Manufacturer and an International Distributor:On January 14, 2011, the Company signed a definitive agreement to acquire a medical equipment manufacturer for an aggregate amount of up to approximately $16 million comprised of an up-front payment and future payments primarily based on continuing employment of the principal shareholders. In addition, on February 22, 2011, Hologic entered into a definitive agreement to acquire an international distributor of medical products for a purchase price of $135 million (subject to adjustment) plus two annual contingent payments with a maximum payout of up to an additional $165 million (subject to adjustment). The contingent payments will be payable in cash based on a multiple of the incremental revenue growth. The closings of the acquisitions are subject to regulatory approvals and other conditions. The Company cannot assure that the closings will take place on a timely basis, if at all. Financial Guidance:The Company's guidance reflects its current core products, including revenues from its recently-approved Dimensions 3D mammography system and its recently acquired businesses, but does not reflect any future revenue or earnings from any anticipated acquisition. Third Quarter Fiscal 2011 (Quarter ending June 25, 2011): The Company expects third quarter fiscal 2011 revenues of $443 to $448 million. This primarily reflects an increase in revenues in the GYN Surgical and Breast Health segments. Year-over-year, this represents an expected increase in revenues of 5% - 6% over the third quarter of fiscal 2010 revenues of $420.7 million.The Company expects non-GAAP adjusted EPS to be approximately $0.31 - $0.32. Fiscal 2011 (Year ending September 24, 2011):The Company is increasing guidance for fiscal 2011 revenues to a range of $1.76 billion to $1.77 billion, reflecting the current level of capital equipment market stabilization, the contributions from the recently-approved Dimensions 3D mammography system, and the outlook for increased GYN Surgical revenues. The Company expects non-GAAP adjusted EPS to be approximately $1.24 to $1.26.Estimates of certain non-GAAP adjustments that the Company anticipates will be reflected in its non-GAAP fiscal 2011 third quarter and fiscal 2011 year financial performance are included as an attachment to this press release.Hologic may not generate expected revenues and may incur expenses or charges or realize income or gains in fiscal 2011 that could cause actual results to vary from the guidance above. In addition, the Company is continuing to monitor the effects of the U.S. and general worldwide economic and regulatory conditions and related uncertainties, including the ongoing implementation of healthcare reform legislation, including associated tax provisions, as well as foreign currency fluctuations, which, along with other uncertainties facing our business, could adversely affect anticipated results.

It is therefore not practicable to reconcile our non-GAAP adjusted EPS guidance to the most comparable GAAP measure. The Company's estimates of certain future non-GAAP adjustments, based upon current information, judgments and assumptions, are presented below for informational purposes.Three Months EndedTwelve Months EndedJune 25, 2011SharesSeptember 24, 2011Shares(In thousands)Certain Anticipated Non-GAAP Adjustments:  Cost of revenues - amortization of      intangible assets$    44,800$   176,200  Amortization of intangible assets14,60058,200  Non-cash interest expense relating to convertible notes18,20072,900  Non-cash loss on convertible notes exchange-29,891  Gain on sale of intellectual property, net-(84,502)  Acquisition-related costs1,2003,552  Fair value write-up of acquired inventory sold-3,298  Contingent consideration fair value adjustments4,0624,050  Litigation settlement charges-450  Income tax effect of reconciling items(28,200)(1)(89,800)(1)Total Anticipated Non-GAAP Adjustments$    54,662$    174,239Diluted Weighted Average Shares Outstanding264,500(2)264,500(2)Explanatory Notes:(1) To reflect an estimated annual effective tax rate of 34% for the third quarter and full year of fiscal 2011 on a non-GAAP basis.(2) To reflect estimated diluted weighted average shares outstanding of 264,500 for the third quarter and full year of fiscal 2011.Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures: The Company has presented the following non-GAAP financial measures in this press release: adjusted net income; adjusted EPS; and adjusted EBITDA. The Company defines its non-GAAP adjusted net income to exclude the non-cash amortization of intangible assets, other acquisition-related charges, such as change in contingent consideration, transaction costs, charges associated with the write-off of acquired in-process research and development and the write-up of acquired inventory to fair value, non-cash charges resulting from changes in GAAP, closure and restructuring charges, non-cash loss on exchange of convertible notes, and one-time, nonrecurring, unusual or unanticipated charges, expenses or gains. As set forth in the applicable reconciliation tables above, non-GAAP adjusted net income and non-GAAP adjusted EPS for the periods presented exclude the following items from GAAP net income and EPS: (i) non-cash expenses associated with the Company's acquisitions, including amortization of intangible assets; (ii) non-cash interest expense resulting from the Company's accounting for convertible debt instruments with cash settlement features; (iii) loss on exchange of convertible notes; (iv) the increase in cost of revenues resulting from the write-up of acquired inventory sold during the applicable period; (v) acquisition transaction costs and charges; and (vi) divestiture and restructuring charges. The Company's non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA excludes from its GAAP net income: (i) the items excluded in its calculation of non-GAAP adjusted net income; (ii) interest expense, net, not otherwise excluded in calculating its non-GAAP adjusted net income; (iii) provision for income taxes; and (iv) depreciation expense.The Company believes the use of non-GAAP adjusted net income and non-GAAP adjusted EPS are useful to investors in comparing the results of operations in fiscal 2011 to the comparable period in fiscal 2010 by eliminating certain of the more significant effects of its acquisitions and related activities, non-cash charges resulting from changes in GAAP, and litigation settlement, divestiture and restructuring. These measures also reflect how the Company manages the business internally. In addition to the adjustments set forth in the calculation of the Company's non-GAAP adjusted net income, its non-GAAP 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 adjusted 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 or EPS prepared in accordance with GAAP.
