STEWARTVILLE, Minn., Nov. 4, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Rochester Medical Corporation (Nasdaq: ROCM) today announced operating results for its fourth quarter and year ended September 30, 2010.
The Company reported record sales of $11,121,000 for the current quarter compared to $9,009,000 for the fourth quarter of last year. It also reported quarterly net income of $172,000 or $.01 per diluted share compared to a net loss of ($229,000) or ($.02) per diluted share for the same quarter of last year.
The approximate 23% increase in total sales (26% on a constant currency basis) resulted from a 27% increase in Rochester Medical Branded Sales (31% on a constant currency basis), and a 15% increase in Private Label Sales (15% increase 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 fourth quarter of 2010 the U.S. dollar was somewhat stronger versus the pound sterling, thus having a negative effect on Rochester Medical Branded Sales levels in translated U.S. dollars given the significant volume of branded 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 $506,000 or $.04 per diluted share compared to Non-GAAP Net Income of $95,000 or $.01 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of last year. The increase for the current quarter is primarily attributable to increased gross profit from higher sales volume partially offset by increased costs, primarily consisting of increased investment in sales and marketing programs.
For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2010, the Company reported record sales of $41,443,000 compared to sales of $34,799,000 for the previous year. It reported a net loss for the year of ($254,000) or ($.02) per diluted share compared to net income of $109,000 or $.01 per diluted share for the previous year. The approximate 19% increase in annual total sales (19% increase on a constant currency basis) resulted from a 28% increase in Rochester Medical Branded Sales (28% increase on a constant currency basis) and a 1% increase in Private Label Sales (1% increase on a constant currency basis). The decrease in net profit was primarily due to increased investment in sales and marketing.
Non-GAAP Net Income for the current year was $1,220,000 or $.09 per diluted share compared to Non-GAAP Net Income of $865,000 or $.07 per diluted share for the previous year. The increase for the current year on a Non-GAAP basis is primarily due to increased gross profit resulting from higher sales, partially offset by our increased investment in sales and marketing programs.
Commenting on today's announcement, Rochester Medical CEO and President Anthony Conway said, "Rochester Medical continues to make solid progress. We are particularly pleased that our ongoing strategic effort to grow our branded sales through increased investment in sales and marketing programs is producing positive results. Now, in order to further enhance the sales and acceptance of Rochester Medical's branded products, we are in the process of significantly expanding our U.S. sales and marketing presence. By 2010 calendar year end, we plan to complete the addition of over 30 new sales people to our staff."
Conway continued, "This staffing increase and related investment is part of our updated strategic business plan, which includes an objective of doubling the Company's annual overall sales in the next three fiscal years, while also producing net income in an estimated range of $9 to $10 million dollars in the third year.
"We expect most of the anticipated acceleration in our sales growth rate to occur in fiscal years 2012 and 2013. Sales in fiscal 2011 are expected to remain strong with an annual growth rate in a range comparable to fiscal 2010. Some quarter to quarter fluctuation in sales growth remains likely through the term of the plan, primarily due to the timing of large private label orders. Our expectations for net income exclude any unusual charges or gains that might occur during any fiscal year, and only reflect information available to the Company at this time."
He concluded, by saying "These are interesting and exciting times for Rochester Medical Corporation."
Rochester Medical has provided Non-GAAP Net Income in addition to earnings 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 Income 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.
