CareFusion Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2014 Results

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CareFusion Corp. (NYSE: CFN), a leading, global medical technology company, today reported financial results for its first quarter of fiscal 2014, ended Sept. 30. 

"Our team executed well and delivered solid first quarter results, putting us on the right track for the full fiscal year," said Kieran T. Gallahue, chairman and CEO. "I'm pleased with the way our Procedural Solutions team continues to perform across the board, and, with good visibility into our capital business, we continue to anticipate a strong second half of the year in Medical Systems.

"During the quarter, we continued to make strategic progress, closing our Sendal acquisition in Spain as part of our strategy to globalize the company and ramping up our R&D investments in the Procedural Solutions segment as we prepare to launch several new products over the next 18 months."

First Quarter ResultsCareFusion reported first quarter fiscal 2014 revenue of $830 million, compared to $837 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2013, a 1 percent decrease on both a reported and constant currency basis.

Operating income was $116 million compared to $143 million in the prior year period. Excluding nonrecurring items, adjusted operating income decreased 11 percent to $142 million, with revenue mix and the medical device excise tax negatively affecting the company's operating margins during the quarter. 

Operating expenses totaled $307 million. Excluding nonrecurring items, adjusted operating expenses were $281 million, an increase of 2 percent over the prior year period, primarily driven by the medical device excise tax.  

The company reported income from continuing operations of $78 million, or $0.36 per diluted share. Adjusted income from continuing operations decreased 3 percent from the prior year period to $96 million, or $0.44 per diluted share.

During the quarter, CareFusion settled a previously disclosed tax matter with the IRS, which resulted in an adjusted effective tax rate of 21.4 percent and contributed approximately $0.04 per diluted share to the company's first quarter results.Medical SystemsFirst quarter revenue for the Medical Systems segment was $524 million, a 5 percent decrease from the prior year period on a reported and constant currency basis. Strong performance in the Infusion Systems business line was offset by declines in the Respiratory Technologies and Dispensing Technologies business lines.  

Segment profit for the quarter fell to $74 million from $102 million in the prior year period, a 27 percent decrease driven by expected lower volumes in the Dispensing Technologies business line resulting from a product line transition. Adjusted segment profit declined 20 percent to $90 million.

Procedural SolutionsStrong performance across the Procedural Solutions segment led to first quarter revenue of $306 million, a 7 percent increase from the prior year period on a reported and constant currency basis. Segment growth was led by double-digit revenue increases in both the Medical Specialties and Specialty Disposables business lines.  

Segment profit totaled $42 million, driven by gross margin improvements that were partially offset by increased investments in R&D. On an adjusted basis, segment profit grew 8 percent to $52 million.

Recent HighlightsAdditional first quarter and recent highlights included:

  • Completing the acquisition of Sendal, an infusion specialty disposable manufacturer in Spain that primarily serves the western European market, further expanding the company's Infection Prevention business line globally.
  • Investing $121 million to repurchase 3.3 million shares during the quarter under a two-year, $750 million share repurchase program. Since the company initiated its first share buyback program in February 2012, CareFusion has invested $621 million to repurchase 18.6 million shares.
  • Receiving 510(k) clearance from the Food and Drug Administration for a needleless IV connector that features neutral reflux at disconnect and only requires a three-second alcohol swab to disinfect.  This product launch, expected in December 2013, will be the first of several new products anticipated across the Procedural Solutions segment during the next 18 months.
  • Introducing a new "Rent-a-Rowa®" leasing and service program that makes it easier for European retail pharmacies to adopt the Rowa Smart® System for automated management of pharmaceutical inventory.
  • Deploying additional functionality for the Pyxis® ES platform, a combination of hardware and software that helps improve medication safety by simplifying and standardizing the medication management process.
  • Launching a new online catalog that simplifies the ordering of surgical products either individually or as full, procedure-specific trays.
  • Introducing the new Alaris VP pump, a large volume infusion pump with technology to accurately measure variable pressure in the infusion line, in several key markets outside of the United States.
  • Fiscal 2014 OutlookFor the fiscal year ending June 30, 2014, CareFusion continues to expect organic revenue to grow 1 to 4 percent on a constant currency basis compared to fiscal 2013 revenue of $3.55 billion. Adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations are expected to be in the range of $2.30 to $2.40.

    The guidance is based on an assumed diluted weighted average outstanding share count of approximately 215 million, which includes the impact of expected share repurchases during fiscal 2014.

    Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures by CareFusion Corporation This CareFusion news release and the information contained herein present non-GAAP financial measures that exclude certain amounts, as follows: "adjusted segment profit," "adjusted operating expenses," "adjusted operating income," and "adjusted operating margin," which exclude amortization of acquired intangibles, as well as nonrecurring restructuring and acquisition integration charges; and "adjusted income from continuing operations," "adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations" and "adjusted effective tax rate," which exclude amortization of acquired intangibles, as well as nonrecurring restructuring and acquisition integration charges and nonrecurring tax items. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measures for these non-GAAP financial measures are segment profit, operating expenses, operating income, operating margin, income from continuing operations, diluted earnings per share from continuing operations and effective tax rate. The company has included below unaudited adjusted financial information for the quarters ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, which includes a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures.

    The company's management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate the company's performance and provides them to investors as a supplement to the company's reported results, as they believe this information provides additional insight into the company's operating performance by disregarding certain nonrecurring items. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation, as a substitute for, or as superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the company's financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements should be carefully evaluated. The 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. While the types of items and charges excluded from the company's non-GAAP financial measures may occur in the future, the company's management believes that they are not reflective of the day-to-day offering of its products and services and relate more to strategic, multi-year corporate actions, without predictable trends, or discrete and unusual or infrequent transactions that are not indicative of future operations or business trends.
