LITTLE FALLS, N.J., June 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- CANTEL MEDICAL CORP. (NYSE: CMN) reported an 18% increase in net income to $5,048,000, or $0.29 per diluted share, on a 24% increase in sales to a record $82,619,000 for the third quarter ended April 30, 2011. This compares with net income of $4,274,000, or $0.25 per diluted share, on sales of $66,559,000 for the third quarter ended April 30, 2010. For the nine months ended April 30, 2011, the Company reported net income of $15,743,000, or $0.91 per diluted share, on a 15% increase in sales to $235,633,000. This compares with net income of $15,318,000, or $0.90 per diluted share, on sales of $204,141,000 for the nine months ended April 30, 2010.
Andrew Krakauer, Cantel's President and CEO stated, "We are pleased to have delivered record sales and another quarter of improved earnings. It is positive to see sales increases in our three major business segments -- Endoscope Reprocessing, Water Purification and Filtration, and Healthcare Disposables -- all with significant core growth. These solid results confirm the continued success of our three-prong approach to growth which includes investing in new product development, sales and marketing programs and acquisitions."
Krakauer added, "As in the first half of this fiscal year, our Endoscope Reprocessing business had remarkable performance in the quarter as sales increased by 67%, driven by shipments of our two newest reprocessors, the Advantage® Plus and the DSD Edge™, as well as disinfectants and sterilants, parts and service. This accomplishment is a result of successful new product development, the effectiveness and quality of our sales and marketing teams, as well as improvements in hospital spending worldwide. Acquisition related integration and startup costs negatively affected operating income in the quarter in both our Water Purification and Filtration, and Healthcare Disposables segments. However, we are optimistic that this year's acquisitions of Gambro's United States water business and the sterilization monitoring business of ConFirm Monitoring will be significantly accretive to Cantel earnings beginning in Fiscal 2012."
The Company further reported that its balance sheet at April 30, 2011 included current assets of $106,241,000, including cash of $16,039,000, a current ratio of 1.5:1, debt of $30,000,000 and stockholders' equity of $229,557,000. Krakauer stated, "The Company has a strong balance sheet and continues to generate significant cash flow and EBITDAS. Our net debt position of $13,961,000 increased by only $2.5 million during the quarter, despite funding $7.5 million for the acquisition of ConFirm Monitoring. EBITDAS for the quarter and nine months ended April 30, 2011 was $11,725,000 and $36,090,000, respectively."

36,259EBITDAS is a measure of the Company's performance that is not required by, or presented in accordance with,Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"). EBITDAS is a non-GAAP financial measure defined by theCompany as income before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation expense.The Company believes EBITDAS is an important valuation measurement for management and investors giventhe increasing effect that non-cash charges, such as stock-based compensation, amortization related to acquisitionsand depreciation of capital equipment, has on the Company's net income. In particular, acquisitions have historicallyresulted in significant increases in amortization of intangible assets that reduced the Company's net income.Additionally, the Company regards EBITDAS as a useful measure of operating performance and cash flow beforethe effect of interest expense and complements operating income, net income and other GAAP financial performance measures. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a Company's performance, financial position or cash flow that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. This measure, however, should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute or superior to, net income, cash flows, or other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.
