  • Net product sales of $67.4 million, an increase of 12.4%;
  • Net sales of $68.9 million (including $1.5 million of license revenue), an increase of 14.2%;

  • Share repurchases of $13 million; and
  • Significant progress in three clinical studies, E-36, E-37, and ANTHEM.
  • The reported results shown above for net sales, adjusted non-GAAP income from operations and adjusted non-GAAP income per diluted share for the most recent quarter reflect the impact of $1.5 million of license revenue compared to $0.4 million included in the comparable quarter of the prior year as a result of recognizing all remaining such license revenue.

    1. Operating results for the fiscal quarter ended July 26, 2013 include a $7.4 million, $4.8 million net of tax, adjustment for a litigation settlement.  The operating results for the fiscal quarter ended July 27, 2012 include an after-tax $2.5 million write-down associated with an impaired investment.  The impact of these amounts is excluded for the purposes of non-GAAP comparisons between the fiscal quarter ended July 26, 2013 and the fiscal quarter ended July 27, 2012. As discussed below under "Use of non-GAAP Financial Measures," in this release, the company refers to and makes comparisons with certain non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted non-GAAP income from operations, adjusted non-GAAP net income, and adjusted non-GAAP income per diluted share.  Investors should consider non-GAAP measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for or superior to, financial performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Please refer to the attached non-GAAP reconciliation.

    Results and objectives"Net sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 met our expectations and provides a good start to the fiscal year," commented Dan Moore, Cyberonics' President and Chief Executive Officer.  "Our U.S. sales team followed a record fourth-quarter performance with a near-record quarter in both unit sales and net product sales.  Estimates of new patient and replacement growth rates are consistent with those provided in our annual guidance.  International unit sales were well ahead of the first quarter of last year, with Europe in particular continuing the strong performance seen in fiscal 2013.

    "Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter was $25.6 million, and with our available cash and short-term investments of $131 million, the company is well-positioned to continue to deliver stockholder value with investments in next-generation products and stock repurchases.

    "Our AspireSR™ clinical studies, E-36 and E-37, have both progressed this quarter.  Enrollment in E-36 is now complete, and the first five patients in our U.S.-based study, E-37, have received the AspireSR generator.  Further, we completed enrollment in our ANTHEM study, assessing Autonomic Regulation Therapy for patients with chronic heart failure.  We are pleased to have achieved each of these important clinical steps while continuing to grow our global epilepsy sales," concluded Mr. Moore.

    Stock Repurchase UpdateDuring the recently completed quarter, Cyberonics repurchased 205,000 shares on the open market, completing the previously authorized program, and leaving 740,000 shares available to be repurchased under the current program, and expected to be completed in the current fiscal year.  

    Fiscal 2014 guidanceCyberonics is re-affirming guidance for fiscal 2014 as follows:

  • Net sales are expected to be in the range of $279 million to $283 million.
  • Adjusted non-GAAP income from operations is expected to be in the range of $85 million to $88 million.
  • Adjusted non-GAAP net income for fiscal 2014 is expected to be in the range from $53 million to $56 million.
  • Adjusted non-GAAP income per diluted share (EPS) will be in the range from $1.93 to $2.01.
  • Guidance for income from operations, net income and diluted earnings per share (EPS) has been adjusted by $7.4 million, $4.8 million (net of tax) and $0.17 cents per share, respectively, for the litigation settlement referenced above.

    Additional details will be provided during today's conference call and in an investor presentation summarizing the company's first quarter results, which is available in the investor relations section of Cyberonics' corporate website at http://www.cyberonics.com.

    Use of non-GAAP financial measuresIn this press announcement, management has disclosed financial measurements that present financial information not in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).  These measurements are not a substitute for GAAP measurements, although company management uses these measurements as aids in monitoring the company's ongoing financial performance from quarter to quarter and year to year on a regular basis and for benchmarking against other medical technology companies.  Adjusted non-GAAP income from operations, adjusted non-GAAP net income and adjusted non-GAAP income per diluted share measure the income from operations, net income and income per diluted share of the company excluding unusual items. Management uses and presents adjusted non-GAAP income from operations, adjusted non-GAAP net income and adjusted non-GAAP income per diluted share measures because management believes that such adjustments facilitate an understanding of the financial impact of unusual items on the company's short- and long-term financial trends.  Management also uses adjusted non-GAAP items to forecast and to evaluate the operational performance of the company, as well as to compare results of current periods to prior periods on a consistent basis.  Adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") measures the adjusted non-GAAP income from operations of the company and excludes the aforementioned items, as well as non-cash equity compensation and other income (expense) items.

    Non-GAAP financial measures used by the company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.  Investors should consider non-GAAP measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

    Please refer to the attached reconciliations between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures.
