Volcano Announces Record Fourth Quarter Revenues

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Volcano Corporation (Nasdaq: VOLC), a leading developer and manufacturer of precision guided therapy tools designed to enhance the diagnosis and treatment of coronary and peripheral vascular disease, today reported results for the fourth quarter of 2012.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2012, Volcano reported record quarterly revenues of $102.5 million, an increase of 10 percent on a reported basis versus the same period a year ago and 12 percent on a constant currency basis after adjusting for a two percent negative impact from foreign currency. Medical segment revenues increased 10 percent on a reported basis and 12 percent on a constant currency basis versus the fourth quarter a year ago.

The company reported net income on a GAAP basis of $2.5 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2012, versus net income of $29.4 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2011. The results for the fourth quarter of 2012 include a benefit of $4.9 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, related to the release of a portion of the company's deferred tax valuation allowance. The results for the fourth quarter of 2011 include a similar benefit of $22.0 million, or $0.40 per diluted share.

For the full year 2012, Volcano reported revenues of $381.9 million, an increase of 11 percent on a reported basis and 12 percent on a constant currency basis over revenues of $343.5 million in 2011. Medical segment revenues increased 12 percent on a reported basis and 13 percent on a constant currency basis and industrial segment revenues declined three percent year-over-year.

The company reported net income on a GAAP basis of $8.0 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, in 2012. This compares with GAAP net income of $38.1 million, or $0.70 per diluted share, in 2011. The results for both periods include the benefits related to a portion of the company's deferred tax valuation allowance referenced above.

"We continued to execute our growth strategy in 2012, delivering a double digit increase in revenues, led by a 45 percent increase in annual revenues on a constant currency basis in our FFR (Fractional Flow Reserve) disposable business. Our FFR technology is emblematic of our Functional PCI strategy that provides solutions for healthcare providers seeking both improved clinical and economic outcomes," said Scott Huennekens, president and chief executive officer.

"At the same time, we continued to position the company for long-term growth by targeting addressable markets that are double the size of those we address today through the growth of our base business, development of our pipeline and implementation of business expansion strategies."

"During the fourth quarter," he continued, "we realized two important milestones in this strategy with our acquisitions of Sync-RX and Crux Biomedical. Sync-RX provides us advanced imaging technology that we will incorporate into our multi-modality platform, while Crux brings Volcano a novel inferior vena cava (IVC) filter and related offerings, and is indicative of our strategy to move beyond intravascular imaging to a wide variety of diagnostic and therapeutic solutions for both coronary and peripheral applications."

Guidance for 2013

The company provided guidance for fiscal 2013. It expects revenues will be in the range of $422.0-$428.0 million. It expects gross margins will be in the range of 65-66 percent and operating expenses will be 61-62 percent of revenues. The company expects a net loss on a GAAP basis of $0.10-$0.14 per share in 2013 and non-GAAP net income of $0.16-$0.20 per diluted share in 2013. Non-GAAP results exclude acquisition-related expenses, amortization of intangibles and non-cash interest expense. The company expects weighted average basic shares in 2013 will be approximately 54.4 million shares and approximately 56.2 million shares on a diluted basis. All guidance for 2013 is provided on a constant currency basis.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. The company uses non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision making and as a means to compare period-to-period results. The company believes that they provide useful information about operating results, enhance the overall understanding of operating results and future prospects, and allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision making.

Constant Currency Basis Revenue Changes: Volcano reports changes in revenue on a constant currency basis, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Volcano believes that investors' understanding of the company's short-term and long-term financial results is enhanced by taking into consideration the impact of foreign currency translation on revenue. In addition, Volcano's management uses results of operations before currency translation to evaluate the operational performance of Volcano and as a basis for strategic planning.

Volcano reports its expectations of earnings per share performance excluding certain expenses described below; for additional details please see the "Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP EPS Guidance" table in this press release. This accompanying table has more details on the GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures and the related reconciliations between these financial measures.

Exclusion of Acquisition-related Expenses: Volcano excludes acquisition-related expenses because it does not consider these acquisition-related costs and adjustments to be related to the organic continuing operations of the acquired businesses and are generally not relevant to assessing or estimating the long-term performance of the acquired assets. In addition, the size, complexity and/or volume of past acquisitions, which often drive the magnitude of acquisition-related costs, may not be indicative of the size, complexity and/or volume of future acquisitions.

Exclusion of Amortization of Intangibles: Volcano excludes amortization of intangibles because it is a non-cash expense relating primarily to acquisitions. At the time of an acquisition, the intangible assets of the acquired company, such as technology and supplier agreements, are valued and amortized over their estimated lives. Volcano believes that since intangibles represent costs incurred by the acquired company to build value prior to acquisition, Volcano management eliminates the impact of the amortization when evaluating its current operating performance.

Exclusion of Non-cash Interest Expense: In addition to disclosing the financial statement impact of the Financial Accounting Standards Board authoritative guidance for convertible debt accounting, Volcano management believes that investors may find it useful to consider excluding the impact of this authoritative guidance because it is non-cash in nature, may provide meaningful supplemental information regarding elements of the company's borrowing costs in order to properly understand its operational performance and liquidity, and facilitates comparisons to competitors' operating results.
