Strong First Quarter EPS and Adjusted EPS Despite a Challenging Economic Environment
BEDFORD, Mass., Feb. 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Hologic, Inc. (Hologic or the Company) (Nasdaq: HOLX), a leading developer, manufacturer and supplier of premium diagnostics, medical imaging systems and surgical products dedicated to serving the healthcare needs of women, today announced its results for the quarter ended December 27, 2008.
Highlights of the quarter include:
First quarter fiscal 2009 revenues totaled $429.2 million, a 16% increase when compared to revenues of $371.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2008. The increase was primarily attributable to the inclusion of 13 weeks of revenues from the diagnostics, surgical and MammoSite product lines acquired in the merger with Cytyc Corporation on October 22, 2007, as compared to 10 weeks in the first quarter of fiscal 2008. Also contributing to the increase in revenues is a $12.5 million, or 34%, increase in service and other revenues primarily related to our Selenia full field digital mammography units sold, as well as revenues of $8.5 million from our acquisition of Third Wave in July 2008.
For the first quarter of fiscal 2009, Hologic reported net income of $48.0 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $358.6 million, or $1.65 per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2008. Included in the first quarter of fiscal 2009 results were charges of $42.5 million and $2.1 million attributable to the amortization of intangibles relating to the Cytyc merger and the Third Wave acquisition, respectively, and $0.6 million attributable to the increase in cost of revenues relating to the write-up of Third Wave inventory to fair value. Also included were a full quarter of operating expenses of $11.4 million from Third Wave.
Included in the first quarter of fiscal 2008 results were charges relating to the Cytyc merger, consisting primarily of: $370.0 million attributable to acquired in-process research and development costs; $41.5 million attributable to the increase in cost of revenues relating to the write-up of inventory to fair market value; and $20.4 million attributable to the amortization of intangibles.
The Company's non-GAAP adjusted net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2009 increased 34% to $80.2 million compared to $59.7 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2008. The Company's fiscal 2009 first quarter non-GAAP adjusted net income primarily excludes a $50.1 million charge to costs and expenses to amortize the intangible assets acquired from Third Wave, Cytyc, AEG, BioLucent, Fischer, R2 and Suros. The Company's fiscal 2008 first quarter non-GAAP adjusted net income primarily excludes: a $26.2 million charge to costs and expenses to amortize the intangible assets acquired from Cytyc, AEG, BioLucent, Fischer, R2 and Suros and the Cytyc merger-related costs described above.
Non-GAAP adjusted net income, non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share (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 first quarter of fiscal years 2009 and 2008, 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 net income (loss) and earnings (loss) per share prepared in accordance with GAAP.
As of December 27, 2008, total backlog for all products was $339.0 million.
"As we stated in our preliminary earnings release on January 12, 2009, this year will be challenging for us, as many drivers of our business remain uncertain," said Jack Cumming, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We witnessed an unprecedented decline in demand for capital equipment at the end of the first quarter, which impacted sales of our Selenia digital mammography systems among our hospital customers. As such, we have implemented a series of measures to control expenses and protect our bottom line. Our focus continues to be on our three new products submitted to the FDA for approval and on our long-term goals. Finally, our cash flows from operations and balance sheet remain strong, which will help navigate us through this tumultuous period."
First quarter revenue overview by segment:
Tomosynthesis Update and Pending PMA Approvals:
On July 30, 2008 we received a letter from the FDA requesting additional information in connection with our PMA application for our new 3-D full field digital mammography system (Selenia Dimensions Tomosynthesis system). We have since compiled the information and responded to the FDA. In addition, we have two other products, the Adiana transcervical sterilization system and two Third Wave HPV filings (CerVista HR and CerVista Genotyping), which are also being reviewed by the FDA. Since we do not directly control the timing of approval, we are unable to estimate with any certainty if or when we may begin to market these products in the U.S.
Our guidance for fiscal 2009 has been revised from the initial fiscal 2009 guidance we issued on November 11, 2008, primarily related to our Breast Health segment, in response to the significant economic downturn principally in the United States, which has resulted in a decline in hospital spending. Hospital systems across the country have responded to tightening access to capital by restricting capital expenditures, implementing tight spending controls and reducing personnel. As a result, we have reassessed our original guidance for the year and second quarter of fiscal 2009 and provide an update below.
Our guidance for fiscal 2009 reflects our current core products and does not reflect any future revenue or earnings contributions from the U.S. market for any of the three products currently before the FDA awaiting PMA approval:
Fiscal 2009 (ending September 26, 2009):
Second Quarter Fiscal 2009 (Quarter ending March 28, 2009):
We may incur charges or realize gains in fiscal 2009 that could cause actual results to vary from the guidance above. In addition, we are continuing to monitor the effects of the U.S. and general worldwide economic conditions and related uncertainties, which, along with other uncertainties facing our business, could adversely affect our anticipated results.
Based on a combination of factors, including the deteriorating macro-economic environment, declines in the stock market and the decline in the price of the Company's common stock, the Company has experienced a significant decline in its market capitalization. As a result, the Company has determined that an indicator of potential goodwill impairment is present for its first fiscal quarter. Accordingly, the Company has commenced performing a goodwill impairment analysis using the two-step approach as required under Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 142, "Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets." The Company currently anticipates having such analysis completed no later than the end of its second fiscal quarter, March 28, 2009. In the event that the Company determines that its goodwill is impaired in whole or in part, a non-cash charge, which could be significant and would reduce reported GAAP net income and earnings per share for the second quarter of 2009 and fiscal year 2009, would be required. The non-cash charge, if any, would not impact the non-GAAP financial information presented in this release. A further discussion of our non-GAAP fiscal 2009 guidance is included in the attachment to this press release.
The Company completed a two-for-one stock split, effected in the form of a stock dividend with a record date of March 21, 2008 and a payment date of April 2, 2008. The Company's financial information in this press release retroactively reflects the stock split.

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 net income to exclude the non-cash amortization or impairment of intangible assets, which primarily relate to intangible assets acquired by the Company since 2006, other acquisition-related charges, such as charges associated with the write-off of acquired in-process research and development and the write-up of acquired inventory to fair market value, and other 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 recent acquisitions, including the amortization and write-off of intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense associated with the termination of acquired employees, acceleration of the vesting or other modification of the terms of equity awards as a result of an acquisition, and the write-off of acquired research and development; (ii) the increase in cost of revenues resulting from the write-up of acquired inventory sold during the applicable period and (iii) restructuring charges. The Company's non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA excludes from its GAAP net income (i) the items excluded in its calculation of adjusted net income, (ii) interest expense, net, (iii) provision for income taxes, and (iv) its depreciation and amortization expense not otherwise excluded in calculating its adjusted net income.
The Company believes the use of non-GAAP adjusted net income and non-GAAP EPS are useful to investors in comparing the results of operations in fiscal 2009 to the comparable period in fiscal 2008 by eliminating certain of the more significant effects of the acquisitions that took place since fiscal 2006. These measures also reflect how the Company manages the business internally and sets operational goals, and forms the basis of certain of its management incentive programs. In addition to the adjustments set forth in the calculation of its adjusted net income, its 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 adjusted net income, these items may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to the overall operating performance of a company's business. The items excluded in its calculation of its adjusted EBITDA presented herein are also excluded in the calculation of its adjusted EBITDA under its senior secured borrowing arrangements and used by the Company and its lenders in determining its compliance with its financial covenants under those arrangements. 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.
Non-GAAP Financial Guidance:
This press release also includes estimates of future non-GAAP adjusted earnings and earnings per share. Since we cannot predict with certainty the nature or the amount of GAAP charges that will be excluded in the calculation of these non-GAAP financial measures, such as future impairments of intangible assets, it is not practicable to estimate the comparable GAAP financial measures at this time.
