BEDFORD, Mass., Aug. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hologic, Inc. (Hologic or the Company) (NASDAQ: HOLX), a leading developer, manufacturer and supplier of premium diagnostics products, medical imaging systems and surgical products, with an emphasis on serving the healthcare needs of women, today announced its results for the third fiscal quarter ended June 29, 2013.
Highlights of the Quarter Include:
Highlights Subsequent to the Quarter Include:
A reconciliation of historical GAAP to non-GAAP results is included as an attachment to this press release.
Third Quarter Fiscal 2013 Operating Results Overview: Third quarter fiscal 2013 revenues totaled $626.1 million, an increase of 33.2% compared to revenues of $470.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2012.
The increase in revenues compared to the same period in the prior year was driven primarily by:
The overall revenue increase was partially offset by lower year-over-year sales of:
Foreign currencies had a negligible impact on revenues compared with the third quarter of fiscal 2012.
Third quarter fiscal 2013 net loss was $11.0 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, compared with net income of $23.6 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. Third quarter fiscal 2013 non-GAAP net income was $103.2 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, an increase of 11.5% and 8.6%, respectively, compared to $92.6 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, for the same period in the prior year.
For the nine months ended June 29, 2013, revenues totaled $1.87 billion. Excluding the effect of a net adjustment of $(19.7) million, primarily related to a purchase accounting adjustment recorded for contingent revenue earned and received under Gen-Probe's collaboration agreement with Novartis, non-GAAP revenues were $1.89 billion, an increase of 33.6% compared to revenues of $1.41 billion for the nine months ended June 23, 2012.
For the nine months ended June 29, 2013, Hologic reported a net loss of $58.9 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, compared with net income of $4.1 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the nine months ended June 23, 2012. The Company's non-GAAP net income of $298.9 million, or $1.10 per diluted share, for the nine months ended June 29, 2013, increased 10.9% and 8.9%, respectively, compared to $269.4 million, or $1.01 per diluted share, for the same period in the prior year.
The following non-GAAP financial measures are included in this press release: revenues, net income, earnings per diluted share (EPS), and adjusted EBITDA. The Company's definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures, and the reconciliations of these historical measures to the Company's comparable GAAP financial measures for the periods presented, 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 the comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
"We are pleased our third quarter revenues were in-line with and our EPS exceeded guidance. Although we have lowered expectations for the remainder of the fiscal year, I am confident we have the necessary platforms and breadth of assets to drive organic growth and deliver strong profitability," said Jack Cumming, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We are committed to improving our performance and execution in order to capitalize on the opportunities in the changing market landscape and position Hologic for success. Our customers worldwide are embracing our 3D breast tomosynthesis technology, and we continue to extend our market leadership position in molecular diagnostics. We are focused on strategies that will allow us to return capital to our shareholders, while still capitalizing on the many opportunities that lie ahead. We are very well positioned to deliver enhanced value for our customers, patients and shareholders."
Third Quarter Fiscal 2013 Revenue Overview by Segment (As Compared to the Third Quarter Fiscal 2012):
Highlights:Hologic Appoints Jack W. Cumming President and Chief Executive Officer:
On July 18, 2013, the Company announced that Jack Cumming was named President and Chief Executive Officer of Hologic. Mr. Cumming joined Hologic in 2001 and served as Chief Executive Officer from 2001 to 2009. During the last four years, Mr. Cumming served as Global Strategic Advisor for Hologic.
Hologic and Quest Diagnostics (Quest) Form Strategic Alliance:
On June 6, 2013, the Company and Quest jointly announced a strategic alliance to more broadly offer testing based on Hologic's Aptima family of products, as well as to co-develop and promote advanced diagnostic solutions to improve women's health. Under the agreement, Quest is transitioning to a broader offering of services, which includes FDA-approved or cleared assays for HPV, HPV genotyping, chlamydia, gonorrhea and trichomonas vaginalis. In addition, Quest continues to utilize Hologic's leading line of ThinPrep liquid-based cytology products. The agreement is non-exclusive with an initial term of five years.
Hologic's 3D Dimensions Breast Tomosynthesis System Places First in KLAS Annual Survey of Mammography Equipment Users:
KLAS, a research firm specializing in monitoring and reporting on the performance of healthcare vendors, announced that Hologic's 3D Dimensions breast tomosynthesis, 2D Selenia, and 2D Dimensions mammography systems placed first, second and third, respectively, in the digital mammography category in the KLAS annual survey of healthcare executives and clinicians. This is the fourth year in a row that users have ranked a Hologic digital mammography system highest in the category.
Product Approvals and Clearances:
On July 23, 2013, the Company announced FDA approval of its Aptima HPV assay on its Panther system. The Aptima HPV test is performed with Hologic's ThinPrep liquid cytology specimen and can be tested before and after it has been processed for cytology testing on the Company's ThinPrep 2000 system. The addition of the Aptima HPV assay to the Panther's women's health testing menu extends the ability of low- to high-volume laboratories to run multiple tests from a single specimen, on a cost-effective, highly-flexible, and fully-automated molecular testing platform.
On July 15, 2013, the Company announced that it expanded its interventional and imaging solutions for breast health with the launch of the world's first 3D breast biopsy option. This technology was developed for the Company's Affirm upright breast biopsy guidance system, which is used in conjunction with both the 2D and 3D Dimensions mammography systems. This new biopsy technique has numerous advantages over traditional stereotactic biopsy procedures, including helping users locate lesions seen only on tomosynthesis images and lesions that are better visualized using 3D imaging, as well as faster lesion targeting and reduced patient procedure time.
Improved Balance Sheet and Financial Flexibility with Refinancing and Partial Repayment of Term B:
On August 2, 2013, the Company entered into a Refinancing Amendment No. 2 (Credit Agreement Amendment 2) that reduced the interest rate on its Term B by 75 basis points (from 3.50% plus LIBOR with a 1.00% floor to 2.75% plus LIBOR with a 1.00% floor). In conjunction with the refinancing, the Credit Agreement Amendment 2 also amends the restrictive covenants in the Credit Agreement to increase the Company's capacity to repurchase shares and issue dividends. In addition, on August 2, 2013, the Company voluntarily prepaid $200 million of the Term B. In connection with this prepayment, the Company will incur a one-time charge to earnings in the fourth quarter of $6 million to write-off certain deferred financing costs and debt discount. Immediately following the completion of this prepayment, the principal amount outstanding on the Term B was approximately $1.285 billion. Hologic estimates the reduction in the interest rate, coupled with the lower loan balance, will result in lower cash interest expense of approximately $19 million per year.
Significant Peer-Reviewed Studies:
Dr. Rose U.S. Tomosynthesis Study.
On May 23, 2013, the results of the first large U.S. clinical study on the use of Tomosynthesis in a clinical site were published in the American Journal of Roentgenology. The study, "Implementation of Breast Tomosynthesis in a Routine Screening Practice: An Observational Study," compared the outcomes of 2D mammography screening exams that were interpreted prior to the introduction of Hologic's 3D Dimensions tomosynthesis system, with screening exams after the introduction of 3D mammography into the practice. The study found that the use of Hologic's 3D Dimensions tomosynthesis screening resulted in a 38% reduction in recall rates and a 35% increase in cancer detection rates, including a 53% increase in invasive cancer detection. The study was led by Dr. Stephen L. Rose, M.D. and is the first large U.S. breast cancer screening analysis to be published in a peer-reviewed journal.
Yale University School of Medicine Study on the Impact of 3D Tomosynthesis on Patient Recall Rates.
On July 30, 2013, a new study by Dr. Brian Haas and his colleagues at Yale University School of Medicine found a 10% increase in cancer detection and a 30% decrease in the overall recall rate when Hologic's Tomosynthesis technology was used in breast cancer screening. The study was published on-line in advance of print in Radiology.
The findings in these studies are consistent with and supplementary to other recent clinical studies on the benefits of Hologic's 3D Dimensions, including the Oslo Tomosynthesis Screening Trial (published in Radiology online in advance of print on January 7, 2013 and in print on April 4, 2013) and the Screening Tomosynthesis or Mammography (STORM) trial in Italy (published in The Lancet Oncology online in advance of print on April 25, 2013).
The Company's guidance includes current operations, including revenues from its approved/cleared products and its recently acquired businesses.
Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2013 (Quarter Ending September 28, 2013):
Fiscal 2013 (Year Ending September 28, 2013):
Hologic may not generate expected revenues and may incur expenses or charges, realize income or gains, or execute acquisitions or dispositions in fiscal 2013 that could cause actual results to vary from the guidance above. In addition, the Company is continuing to monitor the effects of the U.S., European and general worldwide economic and regulatory conditions and related uncertainties, including the implementation of healthcare cost containment measures and healthcare reform legislation, as well as foreign currency fluctuations, which, along with other uncertainties facing the Company's business including those referenced elsewhere herein and its filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, could adversely affect anticipated results.

(19) To reflect an annual effective tax rate of 34.0% on a non-GAAP basis.
Future Non-GAAP Adjustments:Future GAAP EPS may be affected by changes in ongoing assumptions and judgments relating to the Company's acquired businesses, and may also be affected by nonrecurring, unusual or unanticipated charges, expenses or gains, all of which are excluded in the calculation of non-GAAP EPS as described in this press release. It is therefore not practicable to reconcile non-GAAP EPS guidance to the most comparable GAAP measure.
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures: The Company has presented the following non-GAAP financial measures in this press release: revenues; net income; EPS; and adjusted EBITDA. The Company defines its non-GAAP revenues to primarily include contingent revenue earned under the Novartis collaboration post-acquisition which was eliminated under purchase accounting. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as its non-GAAP net income plus net interest expense, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization expense included in its non-GAAP net income. The Company defines its non-GAAP net income and EPS to exclude: (i) the amortization of intangible assets; (ii) acquisition-related charges and effects, such as charges for contingent consideration (comprised of (a) adjustments for changes in the fair value of the contingent consideration liabilities initially recorded as part of the purchase price of an acquisition as required by GAAP, and (b) contingent consideration that is tied to continuing employment of the former shareholders and employees which is recorded as compensation expense), transaction costs, integration costs including retention, and credits and/or charges associated with the write-up of acquired inventory and fixed assets to fair value, and the effect of a reduction in revenue primarily related to contingent revenue under the Novartis collaboration, described above; (iii) non-cash interest expense related to amortization of the debt discount for convertible debt securities; (iv) restructuring and divestiture charges; (v) non-cash extinguishment losses and debt transaction costs; (vi) litigation settlement charges (benefits); (vii) other-than-temporary impairment losses on investments; and (viii) other one-time, nonrecurring, unusual or infrequent charges, expenses or gains that may not be indicative of the Company's core business results; and include income taxes related to such adjustments.
The Company believes the use of non-GAAP revenues is useful to investors as it eliminates certain effects of purchase accounting on its recognition of revenue. The Company believes the use of non-GAAP net income is useful to investors by eliminating certain of the more significant effects of its acquisitions and related activities, non-cash charges resulting from the application of GAAP to convertible debt instruments with cash settlement features, charges related to debt extinguishment losses, investment impairments, litigation settlements, and restructuring and divestiture initiatives. These non-GAAP measures also reflect how Hologic manages its businesses internally. In addition to the adjustments set forth in the calculation of the Company's non-GAAP net income and EPS, 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 non-GAAP net income, these items may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to the overall operating performance of a company's business. When analyzing the Company's operating performance, investors should not consider these non-GAAP financial measures as a substitute for net income prepared in accordance with GAAP.
