Hill-Rom Reports Fiscal Third Quarter Results; Announces Aspen Surgical Acquisition; Lowers Full Year Financial Outlook

BATESVILLE, Ind., July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hill-Rom Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: HRC) announced financial results for its fiscal third quarter ended June 30, 2012 and lowered its outlook for 2012. Adjusted earnings per diluted share increased 19 percent to $0.56 from $0.47 due to stronger sales and cost reduction initiatives.  Reported earnings per diluted share also increased to $0.37 from $0.02 in the prior year.  Adjustments in the current period include previously announced items related to business restructuring, a gain associated with a continuing vendor product recall, a charge related to a field corrective action and costs associated with recent acquisitions.  Adjustments in the prior year included a gain associated with a vendor product recall, restructuring charges and a litigation settlement.

Hill-Rom's quarterly revenue of $406 million increased 6 percent compared to last year or 9 percent on a constant currency basis.  Domestic revenue decreased 6 percent to $258 million, while revenue outside the United States increased 34 percent to $148 million in the same period.  Excluding the impact of foreign currency, Hill-Rom's international revenue increased 44 percent. 

In addition, the Company today announced its acquisition of Aspen Surgical Products, a manufacturer of surgical consumable products.

"While we achieved solid growth in revenue and earnings this quarter, North American and European economic and healthcare environments continue to be challenging.  We have experienced further deterioration in our North American capital business and have updated our outlook accordingly," stated John J. Greisch, President and CEO.  "We continue to implement operational improvements and are taking prudent steps to diversify our portfolio, as demonstrated by our acquisition of Aspen Surgical."

Financial and Operational Highlights -- Third quarter revenue highlights include:

-- North America Acute Care.  North America Acute Care revenue declined 5 percent to $226 million.  Capital sales declined 5 percent due primarily to lower orders and shipments of patient support systems, while rental revenue declined 7 percent.  Patient support systems sales declined 12 percent.

-- International.  International segment revenue, which excludes Canada, increased 42 percent to $134 million, due primarily to growth in the Middle East and Eastern Europe and the impact of the Volker acquisition.  Segment revenue increased 54 percent on a constant currency basis.  Excluding Volker, International revenue increased 28 percent on a constant currency basis.

-- North America Post-Acute Care.  North America Post-Acute Care revenue declined 11 percent to $46 million.  Capital sales decreased 2 percent and rental revenue decreased 14 percent versus the prior year.  Revenue declined in all three businesses, primarily across Home Care and Respiratory Care.

-- Year to date operating cash flow was $187 million, compared to $189 million in the prior year.

-- Hill-Rom recognized a pre-tax charge of $16 million in the quarter for a field corrective action on one of its med-surg product lines related to an intermittent circuit board connection issue. This voluntary action by the Company does not limit the manufacture, sale or ongoing use of these beds.

Please see the attached schedules for additional information, including condensed financial information, summary balance sheet, cash flow statement and segment sales summaries. 

For a more complete review of Hill-Rom's results, please refer to the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, which will be filed later this week.

Hill-Rom Holdings, Inc. routinely provides earnings per share results and guidance on an adjusted basis because the Company's management believes that the presentation provides useful information to investors.  These measures exclude strategic developments, special charges and the impact of significant litigation or other unusual events.  Such items may be highly variable, difficult to predict and of a size that sometimes have substantial impact on the Company's reported operations for a period. Often, prospective quantification of such items is not feasible.  Management uses these measures internally for planning, forecasting and evaluating the performance of the business.
