PEABODY, Mass., March 10, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Analogic Corporation (Nasdaq:ALOG), a leading provider of medical imaging and aviation security technology, today announced results for its second quarter ended January 31, 2011.





Operating highlights during the second quarter included:

  • Revenue of $117.3 million, up 15% from Q2 2010
  • Reported diluted EPS of $0.42
  • Non-GAAP diluted EPS of $0.53
  • Positive cash flow from operations of $7.1 million
  • Completed previously announced OEM ultrasound transducer product line acquisition, which contributed revenue of $2.1 million during the quarter

Revenue for the second fiscal quarter ended January 31, 2011, totaled $117.3 million, compared with first quarter revenue of $103.8 million and the prior fiscal year's second quarter revenue of $101.5 million. Reported net income from continuing operations for the second quarter of fiscal 2011 was $5.3 million, or $0.42 per diluted share. This compares with $1.4 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the first quarter, and $3.9 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, for the prior year's second quarter. Non-recurring accounting items related to the transducer product line acquisition added $0.06 to diluted earnings per share in the second quarter of fiscal 2011.

Non-GAAP net income from continuing operations for the second quarter was $6.7 million, or $0.53 per diluted share, compared with $5.5 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, in the first quarter, and $5.7 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, for the prior year's second quarter. A reconciliation of reported to non-GAAP results is included as an attachment to this press release.

Jim Green, president and CEO, commented, "Our business continues to demonstrate solid top-line results in spite of reduced shipments in our Security business this quarter. In our Medical Imaging business, we saw increased demand across our product lines, with strong growth in sales of our CT subsystems and digital mammography detectors. In Ultrasound, sales in the U.S. grew significantly as we see the effects of our domestic sales channel investment, despite weakness in Europe and in certain distributor markets.

Segment Revenue

Revenue from our Medical Imaging segment was $82.3 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2011, up $10.9 million from the first quarter and up $18.4 million over the prior year's second quarter. Revenue growth was driven by growth across our product lines, with notable increases in CT, Digital Mammography, and OEM ultrasound transducer products. During the second quarter we acquired an OEM ultrasound transducer product line, which generated $2.1 million of sales during the quarter.

Our Ultrasound segment revenue was $24.6 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2011, up $3.5 million from the first quarter and down $0.3 million from the prior year. Ultrasound product revenue was up sequentially due to normal seasonality and growth in the U.S., and down slightly year over year due primarily to an unfavorable foreign currency impact, as well as a slowdown in Europe and certain distributor markets.

Security Technology segment revenue was $10.4 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2011, down $0.9 million from the first quarter and down $2.4 million from a year earlier. Quarterly revenue fluctuations reflect the timing of bridge orders from our OEM customer due to the Transportation Security Administration's deployment of a new procurement process.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This document includes non-GAAP financial measures that are not in accordance with, nor an alternative to, generally accepted accounting principles and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. They are limited in value because they exclude charges that have a material effect on our reported results and, therefore, should not be relied upon as the sole financial measures to evaluate our financial results. The non-GAAP financial measures are meant to supplement, and to be viewed in conjunction with, GAAP financial results. An explanation and a reconciliation of our non-GAAP measures are provided at the end of this press release.

UNAUDITED SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION - RECONCILIATION OF REPORTED (GAAP) TO NON-GAAP MEASURES

We provide non-GAAP gross profit, operating expenses, income from operations, income from continuing operations, diluted earnings per share from continuing operations, net income and diluted net income per share as supplemental measures to reported results regarding our operational performance. These financial measures exclude the impact of certain items and, therefore, have not been calculated in accordance with GAAP. The adjustments to these financial measures, and the basis for such adjustments, are outlined below:

Share-Based Compensation Expense

We incur expense related to share-based compensation included in the reported presentation of cost of sales, research and development, selling and marketing, general and administrative expense. Although share-based compensation is an expense and viewed as a form of compensation, these expenses vary in amount from period to period, and are affected by market forces that are difficult to predict and are not within our control, such as the market price and volatility of our shares, risk-free interest rates, and the expected term and forfeiture rates of the awards. Share-based compensation expense is calculated as of the grant date of each share-based award, and generally cannot be changed or influenced by management after the grant date. Our management team believes that exclusion of these expenses allows comparisons of operating results that are consistent between periods and allows comparisons of our operating results to those of other companies that disclose non-GAAP financial measures that exclude share-based compensation.

Acquisition Related Gains and Expenses

We incur amortization of intangibles and other expenses related to acquisitions we have made in recent years. The intangible assets are valued at the time of acquisition, are then amortized over a period of several years after the acquisition and generally cannot be changed after the acquisition. During the three months ended January 31, 2011, our results included accounting items related to an acquisition of an OEM ultrasound transducer and probe product line. The acquisition accounting items included a bargain purchase gain (i.e. the acquired assets exceeded the amount to be paid for the acquisition) of $1,042,000 recorded in general and administrative expenses within operating income. We believe the exclusion of this gain and acquisition related expenses allow comparisons of operating results that are consistent over time for both our newly acquired and long-held businesses.

Restructuring

During the three months ended October 31, 2010, we initiated a plan to reduce our work force by 104 employees worldwide as we continue to streamline our operations and consolidate our Denmark and Canton, MA manufacturing operations into our existing U.S. facilities. The total cost, including severance and personnel related costs, was $3,562,000 and was recorded as an operating expense during the three months ended October 31, 2010. We reduced restructuring charges by $134,000 in the three months ended January 31, 2011. During the three months ended January 31, 2010, we reduced our work force by 17 employees worldwide. The total cost, including severance and personnel related costs, was $764,000 and was recorded as an operating expense during the three months ended January 31, 2010.

Gain on Sale of Hotel

During the first quarter of fiscal year 2011, we sold our hotel business and recorded an after-tax gain on sale of the hotel business of $924,000, or $0.07 per diluted share. This gain has been presented as a non-GAAP item as management believes it is not associated with the on-going operations of the business.

Taxes

For purposes of calculating non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, we adjust the provision (benefit) for income taxes to tax effect the non-GAAP adjustments described above as they have a significant impact on our income tax provision (benefit). In addition, from time-to-time, we recognize certain non-recurring tax adjustments.

We exclude the above-described expenses, their related tax impact and other non-recurring tax benefits in evaluating short-term and long-term operating trends in our operations, and allocating resources to various initiatives and operational requirements. We believe that these non-GAAP financial adjustments are useful to investors because they allow investors to evaluate the effectiveness of the methodology and information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making.

These non-GAAP financial measures have not been prepared in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information provided in accordance with GAAP. Further, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be computed in the same manner as similarly titled measures used by other companies.

The following table reconciles the non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
