STEWARTVILLE, Minn., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Rochester Medical Corporation (Nasdaq: ROCM) today announced operating results for its first quarter ending December 31, 2007.
The Company reported sales of $8,223,000 for the current quarter compared to $7,512,000 for the first quarter of last year. It also reported net income of $272,000 or $.02 per diluted share compared to a net income of $31,467,000 or $2.59 per diluted share for the first quarter of last year. Net income for the first quarter of last year included $31,305,000 received from lawsuit settlements net of taxes.
The approximately 9% overall increase in sales resulted from a 31% increase in Rochester Medical Branded Sales partially offset by a 21% decrease in Private Label Sales. The Company expects that the decrease in Private Label Sales for the quarter is temporary and is attributable to the timing of large Private Label orders. The Company believes that Private Label Sales will improve throughout the year.
Net income adjusted for certain non-recurring unusual items and certain recurring non-cash expenses, or "Non-GAAP Net Income" for the current quarter is $686,000 or $.05 per diluted share compared to Non-GAAP Net Income of $1,388,000 or $.11 per diluted share for the first quarter of last year. The decrease for this quarter is primarily attributable to increased investment in Sales and Marketing Programs.
Commenting on today's announcement Rochester Medical CEO and President Anthony J. Conway said, "I am very pleased with our progress this quarter. The 31% organic growth rate in our Rochester Medical Branded Sales demonstrates solid initial success resulting from our strategic decision to increase investments in Sales and Marketing. I firmly believe these investments will continue to drive strong Branded Sales growth.
"The decrease in Private Label Sales for the quarter is a timing issue, and we expect Private Label Sales to normalize throughout the year. Led by continued solid growth of Rochester Medical Branded Sales, we expect greater overall sales in Q2."
Conway went on to say, "We will continue our commitment to expanded Sales and Marketing programs, and I believe it will lead to significantly increased revenue and income in the future."
Rochester Medical has provided Non-GAAP Net Income in addition to earnings 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. Non-GAAP Net Income is not a measure 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 is not comparable to information provided by other companies. Non-GAAP Net Income has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitution for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.
Reconciliations of Net Income and Non-GAAP Net Income are presented at the end of this press release.

discuss its earnings report. The call will begin at 4:00 p.m. Central

(1) Settlement income received November 20, 2006 from Premier, Inc of
$5,155,000 and December 14, 2006 from CR Bard, Inc. of $33,450,000
after taxes. This adjustment reduces net income for amounts received
net of taxes paid in connection with one-time settlement of certain
litigation. These amounts were recorded in Other Income in the
Statement of Operations for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2007.
(2) Deferred revenue from a $1,000,000 fee paid by Coloplast A/S in June
2002 for marketing rights to our antibacterial Release NF foley
catheter. These rights with Coloplast A/S were cancelled by mutual
agreement in March 2007, thus accelerating the recognition of the
remaining amount as all conditions for revenue recognition have now
been met. Also includes a $200,000 fee paid by Hollister for
marketing rights to our hydorphilic intermittent catheter in September
2003. The fee paid by Hollister was fully recognized in December
2006. This adjustment reduces net income related to the realization
of certain one-time revenue from marketing rights. The amounts were
recorded in net sales in the Statement of Operations.
(3) Amortization of the intangibles acquired in June 2006 asset
acquisition from Coloplast AS and Mentor Corporation. Management
believes these assets are appreciating. This adjustment adds back
amortization expense for the three months ended December 31, 2007 and
2006 related to certain intangibles.
(4) Compensation expense mandated by SFAS 123R. This adjustment adds back
the compensation expense recorded when stock options are granted to
employees and directors for the three months ended December 31, 2007
