STEWARTVILLE, Minn., Jan. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Rochester Medical Corporation (Nasdaq: ROCM) today announced operating results for its first quarter ended December 31, 2010.
The Company reported sales of $10,946,000 for the current quarter compared to $10,232,000 for the first quarter of last year. The Company also reported net loss of ($169,000) or ($.01) per diluted share for the quarter compared to an identical net loss of ($169,000) or ($.01) per diluted share for the same period of last year.
The approximate 7% increase in sales (8% on constant currency basis) resulted from a 16% increase in Rochester Medical Branded Sales (18% on a constant currency basis) partially offset by an 11% decrease in Private Label Sales (11% decrease on a constant currency basis). Constant currency basis assumes current exchange rates for all periods in order to exclude the impact of foreign exchange variations. In the first quarter of fiscal 2011, the U.S. dollar was somewhat stronger versus the pound sterling thus negatively affecting Rochester Medical Branded Sales growth levels in actual U.S. dollars given the significant volume of our branded products sales in the United Kingdom.
Net income adjusted for certain non-recurring unusual items and certain recurring non-cash expenses, or "Non-GAAP Net Income" for the current quarter was $377,000 or $.03 per diluted share compared to Non-GAAP Net Income of $148,000 or $.01 per diluted share for the first quarter of last year. The increase for the current quarter is primarily attributable to increased sales revenues and increased margin partially offset by increased investment in sales and marketing.
Commenting on the quarter results and other recent activities, Rochester Medical's CEO and President Anthony J. Conway said, "The first quarter of 2011 was a period of significant activity for Rochester Medical. Our branded sales continue to grow nicely, reflecting our strategic focus on that area. As we have often discussed, the quarterly fluctuations in Private Label Sales are related to the timing of orders from our large Private Label Customers; we expect year over year Private Label Sales to show modest growth. Also, though Branded Sales showed a solid constant currency growth of 18%, they too were softened in Q1 due to timing of orders from several large International Distributors whose sales of Rochester Medical Branded Products continue to grow nicely year over year."
Conway continued, "I am pleased to announce we have concluded a major nationwide recruitment and training project to significantly expand our field sales representation in the U.S. During the first quarter we added 34 full time sales professionals, more than tripling our U.S. Sales Force. We believe this is a major step for the Company and expect this will accelerate sales of Rochester Medical Branded Products as we go forward."
He added, "Also in Q1, much dedicated time was spent on reaching agreement with Fornix N.V. to purchase its subsidiary Laprolan B.V. in The Netherlands. I commend Rochester Medical's Corporate Vice President Martyn Sholtis and Chief Financial Officer David Jonas for their dedicated and tireless efforts on both sides of the Atlantic which made this possible. Laprolan distributes wound care, ostomy care, and urology products into the Dutch market. For calendar 2010 it reported revenues of approximately $11.2 million and pre-tax profit of approximately $3.5 million. When finalized, the transaction is expected to significantly strengthen Rochester Medical's sales revenues, margins, and earnings going forward from January 1, 2011 which will be the retroactive effective date. We believe this acquisition will allow us to grow sales of Rochester Medical Branded and other Products in the Netherlands and will also serve as a base for gaining new sales into other European countries as well."
Conway concluded, "I am very pleased with these recent accomplishments. I believe that the pending acquisition of Laprolan B.V. and the expansion of our U.S. Sales Team have us well positioned for meeting the objectives of our three year growth plan."
Rochester Medical has provided Non-GAAP Net Income in addition to net loss calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) because management believes Non-GAAP Net Income provides a more consistent basis for comparisons that are not influenced by certain charges and non-cash expenses and are therefore helpful in understanding Rochester Medical's underlying operating results. Similarly, constant currency represents reported sales with the cost/benefit of currency movements removed. Management uses the measure to understand the growth of the business on a constant dollar basis, as fluctuations in exchange rates can distort the underlying growth of the business both positively and negatively. While we recognize that foreign exchange volatility is a reality for a global company, we routinely review our Company performance on a constant dollar basis, and we believe this also allows our shareholders to understand better our Company's growth trends.
Non-GAAP Net Income and constant currency are not measures of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered an alternative to net income or any other measure of performance or liquidity under GAAP. Non-GAAP Net Income and constant currency are not comparable to information provided by other companies. Non-GAAP Net Income and constant currency have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitution for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Reconciliations of Net Loss and Non-GAAP Net Income, and reconciliations of sales under GAAP and sales on a constant currency basis, are presented at the end of this press release.
