STEWARTVILLE, Minn., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Rochester Medical Corporation (NASDAQ: ROCM) today announced operating results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2012.
The Company reported record sales and record income from operations for the fourth quarter. Sales were $16,733,000 compared to $14,839,000 for the fourth quarter of last year. Income from operations for the quarter was $1,687,000 compared to income from operations of $588,000 in the fourth quarter of last year. Net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 was $1,027,000 or $0.08 per diluted share compared to net income of $407,000 or $0.03 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of last year.
Fourth quarter sales increased 13% year over year (16% on a constant currency basis) driven by a 14% increase in Rochester Medical Direct Sales (19% on a constant currency basis) and a 7% increase in Private Label Sales (7% 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 fiscal 2012, the U.S. dollar was somewhat stronger versus the pound sterling and the Euro, thus negatively affecting Rochester Medical Direct Sales growth levels in actual U.S. dollars given the significant volume of direct sales in the United Kingdom and The Netherlands.
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 $1,366,000 or $0.11 per diluted share compared to Non-GAAP Net Income of $822,000 or $0.07 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of last year. The increase in Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter is primarily due to increased gross profit as a result of the higher sales versus last year.
For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2012, the Company reported record sales of $61,089,000 compared to sales of $52,919,000 for the previous year. It also had a record $3,213,000 of income from operations compared to a loss from operations of ($1,677,000) in fiscal 2011. The 15% increase in annual total sales (18% on constant currency basis) resulted from an 18% increase in Rochester Medical Direct Sales (21% on a constant currency basis) and a 6% increase in Private Label Sales (6% on a constant currency basis). The Company reported net income for the year of $2,050,000 or $0.17 per diluted share compared to a net loss of ($1,315,000) or ($0.11) per diluted share for the previous year. The increase in net income for this fiscal year was primarily attributable to increased gross profit as a result of higher sales.
Non-GAAP Net Income for the current year was $3,507,000 or $0.28 per diluted share compared to Non-GAAP Net Income of $1,073,000 or $0.09 per diluted share for the previous year. The increase was primarily due to increased gross profit as a result of higher sales.
Commenting on the results, Rochester Medical's CEO and President Anthony J. Conway said, "We had a solid quarter and a good year. Our Direct Sales continue to grow nicely, especially our Intermittent Catheters which we sell into an $800 million global market. In the fourth quarter on a global basis, Intermittent Catheters sales were up 44% overall. In the U.S., Intermittent Catheter sales were up 47%. This market is a primary focus for the Company going forward. We expect to introduce further advanced products into this marketplace in late calendar year 2013.
"We announced last week that the Company will exit the Foley Catheter marketplace. Though we have excellent products, our rate of market penetration was simply not strong enough to justify the considerable expense and attention that it required. We are confident that the Company will be significantly stronger as a result of our decision."
"The Company also announced an update to its three-year strategic plan originally provided in November 2010. From continuing operations the Company now expects Fiscal 2013 revenues to be approximately $67 million and net income to be approximately $7 million. The primary reasons for the change in the strategic plan are the result of the discontinuation of the Foley Catheter line, and to a lesser extent, a more conservative assumption about the performance in our international sales business given the broader economic challenges in Europe."
Conway continued, "As our updated plan indicates, despite the reduction in our expected results of our three-year plan we nonetheless have demonstrated solid growth in fiscal years 2011 and 2012 and, importantly, we continue to grow our business at a robust rate. Total sales are expected to increase 17% year over year after adjusting for the exclusion of Foley Catheter sales in both years, and net income is expected to double from fiscal 2012 given the higher level of profitability we expect to achieve. We are looking forward to a good fiscal 2013."

This press release contains "forward-looking statements" with the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such statements include, but are not limited to, statements about the future financial and operating results of Rochester Medical. Such statements are based on currently available information, operating plans and management's expectations about future events and trends. Such statements inherently involve significant risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those predicted in such forward-looking statements, including the uncertainty of estimated revenues and profits, the uncertainty of current domestic and international economic conditions that could adversely affect the level of demand for the Company's products and increased volatility in foreign exchange rates, the uncertainty of market acceptance of new product introductions, and our level of success in increasing Rochester Medical Direct Sales revenue, the uncertainty of gaining new strategic relationships or locating and capitalizing on strategic opportunities, the uncertainty of timing of Private Label Sales revenues (particularly international customers), FDA and other regulatory review and response times, and other risk factors listed from time to time in the Company's SEC reports and filings, including, without limitation, the section entitled "Risk Factors" in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2011, and quarterly reports on Forms 10-Q.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Rochester Medical has provided Non-GAAP Net Income in addition to net income 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 GAAP 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.
