SAN DIEGO, July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ResMed Inc. (NYSE: RMD) today announced results for its fourth quarter and for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2014. Revenue for the quarter was $415.2 million, flat compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2013 (a 1 percent decrease on a constant currency basis). Net income was $87.7 million, an increase of 20 percent compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2013. Diluted earnings per share for the quarter were $0.61, an increase of 22 percent compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2013.
The results for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 were impacted by a $6.3 million ($4.2 million, net of tax) expense for restructuring charges relating to employee termination benefits associated with our reorganization of our commercial and research and development teams. Non-GAAP net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 was $92.0 million, a 1 percent increase compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2013 (non-GAAP measures exclude the impact of the restructuring expenses in the current quarter and the charge for Sydney University education, research and settlement expenses in the prior year quarter). Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share for the quarter were $0.64, a 3 percent increase compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2013.
"Our fourth quarter results were lower than anticipated, the result of softer sales in the Americas, partially offset by good growth in our international markets," said ResMed Chief Executive Officer Mick Farrell. "We continue to benefit from our globally diversified business, with constant currency revenue growth of 5 percent in our combined Europe and Asia-Pacific businesses."
Highlighting ResMed's new products, Farrell continued, "We see good adoption of our AirFit™ P10 nasal pillows system which is currently the market leader among new patients, and although it is early, we are seeing encouraging traction for our AirFit™ N10 nasal mask and AirFit™ F10 full-face mask which were launched in the fourth quarter around the world. On the flow generator side in the fourth quarter, we launched the Astral™ platform, our new generation of life support ventilators, and are seeing strong uptake in Europe and Asia as sales begin to ramp. During the fourth quarter, we received FDA clearance for the Astral platform in the U.S. and anticipate a U.S. launch by the end of the calendar year."
Farrell concluded, "We remain focused on capital management, as we continued to repurchase our shares during the quarter. And today, we announced an increase in our quarterly dividend – the second increase since we began paying a dividend in September 2012. We are executing against our Three Horizons strategy and expect to return to constant currency top-line growth as we ramp up our new product offerings over fiscal year 2015. These ResMed solutions are emblematic of our goal to improve patient outcomes and quality of life, while reducing costs for global healthcare systems. In tougher times, we remain committed to disciplined management of our expenses while appropriately funding our long-term opportunities. We remain excited about the long-term prospects of our business, with ongoing growth opportunities in treating sleep-disordered breathing, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and cardiorespiratory diseases."

The restructuring expenses relate to discrete employee termination benefits associated with the reorganization of our commercial and research and development teams. Management excludes restructuring activities from its evaluation of ongoing operations and believe investors benefit from excluding these charges to facilitate a more meaningful evaluation of current operating performance.(B)
The education, research and settlement charge relates to an agreement reached with the University of Sydney, in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013, to pay A$25 million (US$24.8 million) for the establishment of two perpetual academic chairs, the funding of future research in the fields of sleep medicine and biomedical engineering and the settlement of legal proceedings between the parties.ResMed believes that presenting diluted earnings per share, excluding the impact of the charge for the restructuring, education, research and settlement expenses is an additional measure of performance that investors can use to compare operating results between reporting periods. Management uses non-GAAP information internally in planning, forecasting, and evaluating the results of operations in the current period and in comparing it to past periods. Management believes this information provides investors better insight in evaluating the Company's performance from core operations and provides consistency in financial reporting. Our use of non-GAAP measures is intended to supplement, and not to replace, our presentation of net income and other GAAP measures. Like all non-GAAP measures, non-GAAP earnings are subject to inherent limitations because they do not include all the expenses that must be included under GAAP.
