Hill-Rom Reports Fiscal Third Quarter Financial Results In Line With Guidance
Date:7/28/2017

CHICAGO, July 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hill-Rom Holdings, Inc. ("Hill-Rom") (NYSE: HRC), today announced financial results for its fiscal third quarter ended June 30, 2017, and updated its financial outlook for fiscal 2017.

For the fiscal third quarter, Hill-Rom reported earnings of $0.09 per diluted share compared to $0.68 per diluted share in the prior-year period. These results reflect after-tax special items, including a charge of $0.39 per diluted share primarily related to the non-cash write-down of assets associated with the planned Völker divestiture, as well as intangible amortization, and a tax benefit recorded in the prior year. On an adjusted basis, excluding special items, earnings of $0.91 per diluted share rose 12 percent from $0.81 per diluted share in the prior-year period, at the top end of the company's previously-issued guidance of $0.89 to $0.91 per diluted share. Adjustments to reported earnings are detailed in the reconciliation schedules provided. 

"The strength of our third quarter financial results reflects the value of our diversified portfolio, positive momentum in our international business, and disciplined execution of cost management initiatives. We are also updating our full-year guidance to reflect the anticipated Völker divestiture and the phasing of certain international orders in the fourth quarter," said John J. Greisch, president and chief executive officer of Hill-Rom. "We remain committed to driving sustained growth, executing our plans for margin expansion, and achieving key strategic objectives to create long-term value for patients, customers and shareholders."

Fiscal Third Quarter Financial Results  In the fiscal third quarter, Hill-Rom's worldwide revenue of $689 million increased 5 percent compared to the fiscal third quarter last year, or 6 percent on a constant currency basis. Domestic revenue of $471 million grew 4 percent, while revenue outside the U.S. of $218 million advanced 7 percent, or 10 percent on a constant currency basis.  

Excluding revenue of completed or announced divestitures from both periods (WatchChild, Architectural Products, and Völker), as well as more than $25 million of revenue associated with the recent acquisition of Mortara Instrument, Hill-Rom's core revenue advanced 4 percent on a constant currency basis, in line with the company's guidance of 4 to 5 percent growth.  

By reporting segment:

  • Patient Support Systems: Patient Support Systems revenue of $355 million declined 2 percent on a reported basis and declined 1 percent on a constant currency basis. Excluding the impact of completed or announced divestitures from both periods, core revenue increased 2 percent on a constant currency basis. 
  • Front Line Care: Front Line Care, which includes Welch Allyn, Respiratory Care and Mortara, generated revenue of $227 million, an increase of 18 percent on a reported basis, and 19 percent on a constant currency basis. Excluding the Mortara acquisition, revenue advanced 6 percent on a constant currency basis.  
  • Surgical Solutions: Surgical Solutions revenue of $107 million rose 6 percent on a reported basis and advanced 7 percent on a constant currency basis. 
  • Gross margin of 48.0 percent declined 10 basis points from the prior year gross margin of 48.1 percent, while operating margin declined 300 basis points to 5.9 percent. On an adjusted basis, gross margin expanded by 20 basis points to 48.3 percent and operating margin expanded by 90 basis points to 16.1 percent. Adjustments to gross margin and operating margin are detailed in the reconciliation schedules provided. 

    On a year-to-date basis, operating cash flow of $240 million increased approximately $34 million, or 17 percent, versus the prior-year period, and the company returned $65 million to shareholders in the form of dividends and share repurchases. 

    Recent Highlights  Complementing the company's financial performance were a number of recent achievements, which include: 

  • Introducing the Monarch™ Airway Clearance System, which builds high frequency chest wall oscillation therapy into a mobile vest, allowing a patient to be active and productive while receiving therapy. The system also incorporates LTE or WiFi technology to keep patients wirelessly connected to their care team using Hill-Rom's VisiView™ Health Portal.  
  • Launching the new Hill-Rom® Envella™ Air Fluidized Therapy Bed, the company's latest innovative solution providing the highest quality wound care for patients with advanced wounds. 
  • Enhancing the company's comprehensive line of surgical blades, scalpels and related accessories with the launch of new safety surgical instruments, including the Bard Parker® SafeSwitch® Disposable Scalpel Handle and Scalpel Handle Cover, as well as the new Bard Parker® Blade Remover. These innovations help protect surgical teams from injuries that may occur before, during and after surgical procedures. 
  • Optimizing the portfolio by entering into an agreement to sell the non-core Völker business, which primarily serves the European long-term care bed market. This planned divestiture will enable Hill-Rom to direct resources, investment and focus to strategic, core growth platforms. The transaction is subject to certain regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions, and is expected to close during the fiscal fourth quarter.
  • Fiscal Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2017 Financial Outlook  Hill-Rom provided its fiscal fourth quarter financial outlook and updated its 2017 full-year guidance. For the fiscal fourth quarter 2017, Hill-Rom expects revenue to increase 3 to 4 percent on a reported basis and constant currency basis. Excluding Mortara and the impact of completed and announced divestitures from both periods, Hill-Rom's core revenue is expected to increase approximately 3 percent on a constant currency basis. Hill-Rom also expects adjusted earnings, excluding special items, of $1.26 to $1.30 per diluted share. 

    For the full-year, Hill-Rom now expects revenue to increase approximately 3 percent on a reported basis (or approximately 4 percent on a constant currency basis). Excluding Mortara and the impact of completed and announced divestitures (with 2016 annual revenue of approximately $75 million) from both periods, Hill-Rom's core revenue is expected to increase approximately 3 percent on a constant currency basis. In addition, the company now expects adjusted earnings, excluding special items, of $3.80 to $3.84 per diluted share and $330 to $340 million in operating cash flow (including the outflows associated with restructuring and integration activities).  

    Discussion of Adjusted Financial Measures  Hill-Rom Holdings, Inc. routinely provides gross margin, operating margin and earnings per share results and guidance on an adjusted basis because the company's management believes these measures contribute to an understanding of our financial performance and provide additional analytical tools to understand our results from core operations and reveal underlying trends. These measures exclude strategic developments, acquisition and integration costs, special charges or other unusual events. The company also excludes expenses associated with the amortization of intangible assets associated with prior business acquisitions. These adjustments are made to allow investors to evaluate and understand operating trends excluding the non-cash impact of acquired intangible amortization on operating income and earnings per share.      

    Management uses these measures internally for planning, forecasting and evaluating the performance of the business. Investors should consider non-GAAP measures in addition to, not as a substitute for, or as superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of GAAP measures to adjusted measures appear in the financial tables of this release.    

    Our adjusted earnings per diluted share guidance excludes the impact of intangible asset amortization associated with prior business acquisitions which we expect to be $1.05 to $1.10 per diluted share for the year. Management also does not include adjusted items such as strategic developments, acquisition and integration costs, special charges, and other unusual items in our guidance because such items are being evaluated on an ongoing basis, can be highly variable and cannot be reasonably predicted. As such, prospective quantification of these items is not feasible and a full reconciliation of non-GAAP earnings per share guidance to GAAP earnings per share has not been provided. However, as a result of significant recent acquisitions and our ongoing footprint and portfolio optimization, we do expect adjusted items we have not predicted to potentially be significant to our GAAP measures including gross margin, operating margin and earnings per share.  

    The company also presents certain results on a constant currency basis. Constant currency information compares results between periods as if foreign currency exchange rates had remained consistent period-over-period. Management monitors sales performance on an adjusted basis that eliminates the positive or negative effects that result from translating international sales into U.S. dollars. Management calculates constant currency by applying the foreign currency exchange rate for the prior period to the local currency results for the current period.
