Accuray Reports Financial Results for First Quarter of Fiscal Year 2014

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Accuray Incorporated (Nasdaq: ARAY) announced today financial results for the first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2013.
Results are presented on a GAAP basis, unless otherwise indicated, as the magnitude of purchase accounting amortization was minimal for fiscal year 2013 and is projected to be minimal for fiscal year 2014 and beyond, making GAAP results comparable on a year over year basis and a good measure of the company's performance.

First Quarter and Recent Highlights

  • Continued strong order momentum with gross orders of $63.4 million, an increase of 17% from the first fiscal quarter of 2013.
  • Gross profit margins improve 590 basis points, operating expenses decline 13% and adjusted EBITDA improves $8.1 million, all compared to the prior year first fiscal quarter.
  • Over 100 oral and poster presentations at the 55th annual American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) meeting reinforcing clinical and quality of life benefits for the CyberKnife® and TomoTherapy® Systems.
  • "We had a strong start to the fiscal year with most elements of our performance being above our expectations, reflecting strong commercial and operational execution.  Orders into backlog are being driven by the actions we have taken to improve our commercial focus and enable growth through improved business processes.  We expect that product revenues will begin to strengthen over the next several quarters as well," said Joshua H. Levine, president and chief executive officer of Accuray.  "Improving gross profit margins along with continued expense control in narrowing our adjusted EBITDA losses puts the business on a strong trajectory to achieve profitability, along with higher revenues."

    "We are enthusiastic about fiscal 2014 and the continued execution improvements which were started in the last fiscal year. Our reaffirmed guidance reflects an anticipation that we will return to year over year growth in revenues while the introduction of an adjusted EBITDA measure places our focus on driving the company to positive cash flow," said Levine.

    Financial HighlightsGross product orders totaled $63.4 million for the first quarter, an increase of $9.3 million or 17% over the first quarter of the prior year and a decrease of $8.2 million or 11% from the immediately preceding quarter.  Net product orders totaled $60.1 million for the first quarter, an increase of $8.5 million or 16% from the first quarter of fiscal 2013, and an increase of $2.0 million or 3% from the immediately preceding quarter.  Ending product backlog of $347.8 million was approximately 18% higher than backlog at the end of the prior year first quarter and 10% higher than the previous quarter.

    During the quarter, 13 units were shipped and 14 were installed, increasing Accuray's worldwide installed base to 706 systems.

    Total revenue reached $76.6 million, representing a decrease of 7% from the prior year first quarter and a decrease of 10% from the immediately preceding quarter. Gross profit margin was 34.5%, comprised of service gross margin of 33.0% and product gross margin of 37.1%. This compares to total gross margin of 28.6% for the first quarter of the prior fiscal year and 32.1% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013.

    Operating expenses were $38.8 million, compared with $44.3 million in the first quarter of the prior year and $40.0 million in the immediately preceding quarter.

    Cash, cash equivalents, investments and restricted cash were $164.4 million as of September 30, 2013, a decrease of $12.7 million from June 30, 2013.

    2014 Financial GuidanceAccuray reaffirmed its financial guidance of total revenue for fiscal 2014 of $325 million to $345 million.  This is unchanged from the financial guidance provided on August 27, 2013.

    Use of Non-GAAP Financial MeasuresThe Company has supplemented its GAAP net loss with a non-GAAP measure of 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.  Additionally, it will assist management in analyzing future trends, making strategic and business decisions and establishing internal budgets and forecasts. A reconciliation of non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA to GAAP net loss (the most directly comparable GAAP measure) is provided in the schedule below.

    There are limitations in using this non-GAAP financial measure because it is not prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.  This non-GAAP financial measure 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 and the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measure provided in the schedule below.
