Analogic Corporation Announces Results for the Third Quarter Ended April 30, 2009

PEABODY, Mass., June 4, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Analogic Corporation (Nasdaq:ALOG), a leading designer and manufacturer of high-precision medical and security imaging equipment, today announced results for its third quarter ended April 30, 2009.

Highlights during the quarter included:


 * Revenues of $93.6 million, down $9.1 million versus Q2 2009
 * Net Income of $2.3 million, up $0.9 million from Q2 2009
 * Earnings:
   -- GAAP: $0.18 per diluted share
   -- Non-GAAP: $0.24 per diluted share
 * Positive operating cash flows of $9.4 million

 * Orders totaling $16 million were received for airport security
   systems

Revenues for the third quarter ended April 30, 2009, were $93.6 million, compared with second quarter revenues of $102.7 million and the prior year's third quarter revenues of $102.8 million. Income from operations for the third quarter was $1.5 million compared with a loss of $1.5 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2009 and income of $7.7 million in the prior year's third quarter.

GAAP net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2009 was $2.3 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, compared with $1.4 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the second quarter and $6.7 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, for the prior year's third quarter.

On a non-GAAP basis, income from operations for the third quarter of fiscal 2009 was $3.3 million compared with $3.8 million in the second quarter and $9.4 million in the prior year. Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter was $3.1 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, compared with $3.4 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, in the second quarter and $8.0 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, for the prior year's third quarter.

Jim Green, President and CEO, commented, "Economic conditions continue to put pressure on capital equipment spending, affecting the demand for CT, MR, and motion control related systems. We expect these trends to continue through the next couple of quarters, however, we will continue to manage our business for profitability and positive cash flow."

Green continued, "As our customers optimize their R&D expenses, they are coming to us more often for the development of new products. This increasing interest in Analogic as a development and manufacturing partner for critical subsystems will continue to benefit us in the future."

Segment Revenues

Medical Imaging revenues were $50.0 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2009, down $11.8 million from the second quarter and down $8.5 million over the prior year's third quarter. Imaging System and Subsystem revenues were down during the third quarter due to continued weakness in the healthcare capital equipment market, driven by poor economic conditions, particularly in the United States. During the quarter we implemented a major OEM contract that has the one-time effect of delaying $3 million in revenue recognition and increasing finished-goods inventory. This contract will have a similar impact in Q4, at which point revenue recognition should return to normal run rates.

Digital Radiography revenues were $10.3 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2009, up $3.5 million from the second quarter and up $1.6 million over the prior year, driven by increasing sales of tomosynthesis-ready amorphous Selenium direct digital mammography detectors to a major medical OEM. We continue to expect long-term revenue growth in DR as our customers introduce their systems outside the U.S., and as they receive regulatory clearance to sell them within the U.S.

BK Medical revenues were $19.2 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2009, down $1.6 million from the second quarter and down $3.5 million from the prior year. Revenues were negatively impacted by currency exchange rates and the delay in customer orders in anticipation of the new Flex Focus scanner.

Security Technology revenues were $12.2 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2009, up $1.0 million from the second quarter and up $1.5 million from a year earlier. During the third quarter we received a $16 million order from L-3 Communications for eXaminer® 3DX and eXaminer SX systems, which will begin shipping in June 2009. This is the first order for the eXaminer SX since the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) certified the system in January.

UNAUDITED SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION - RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP MEASURES

The Company provides non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP income before income taxes, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share as supplemental measures to GAAP regarding the Company's 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 non-GAAP financial measures, and the basis for such adjustments, are outlined below:


     Share-based compensation expense. The Company incurs expense
     related to share-based compensation included in its GAAP
     presentation of cost of sales, research and development, selling
     and marketing, general and administrative expense. Although
     share-based compensation is an expense of the Company 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 the control of
     management, such as the market price and volatility of the
     Company's shares, risk-free interest rates, and the expected term
     and forfeiture rates of the awards. In accordance with SFAS No.
     123(R), 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.
     Management believes that exclusion of these expenses allows
     comparisons of operating results that are consistent between
     periods and allows comparisons of the Company's operating results
     to those of other companies that disclose non-GAAP financial
     measures that exclude share-based compensation.

     Acquisition related expenses. The Company incurs amortization of
     intangibles and other expenses related to acquisitions it has
     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 or
     influenced by management after the acquisition. Management
     believes that exclusion of these expenses allows comparisons of
     operating results that are consistent over time for both our
     newly acquired and long-held businesses.

     Executive transition expenses. James W. Green was appointed as
     our President and CEO on May 21, 2007. Since his arrival Mr.
     Green made a number of changes in the senior leadership team
     reporting to him. As such, the Company incurred charges for
     severance, executive search, relocation and other related
     expenses. Management believes these charges should be excluded
     from the non-GAAP results because they were one-time items not
     associated with the ongoing operations of the business.

     Restructuring charge. The Company continuously strives to improve
     its operating efficiency. During the three months ended January
     31, 2009, the Company reduced its work force by 145 employees or
     approximately 9% worldwide. The total cost of these activities
     was $3,811,000 of which $3,488,000 was recorded as an operating
     expense during the three months ended January 31, 2009. An
     additional $323,000 was charged against restructuring accruals
     previously recorded as part of the Copley acquisition. Management
     believes that exclusion of these expenses allows for comparisons
     of operating results that are consistent over time.

     Taxes. For purposes of calculating non-GAAP net income and
     non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, management adjusts the
     provision (benefit) for income taxes to tax effect the non-GAAP
     adjustments described above as they have a significant impact on
     the Company's income tax provision (benefit). In addition, from
     time-to-time, the Company recognizes certain non-recurring tax
     adjustments. In the three months ended January 31, 2009, the
     Company recorded $1,729,000 of discrete tax benefits of which
     $1,232,000 related to an income tax refund for R&D tax credits
     and $497,000 related the settlement of an income tax audit. In
     the three months ended April 30, 2009, the Company recorded
     $124,000 related to interest received on a tax refund. As these
     adjustments do not reflect the underlying performance of the
     business they have been excluded from Non-GAAP net income.

Management excludes the above-described expenses, their related tax impact and other non-recurring tax benefits in evaluating short-term and long-term operating trends in the Company's operations, and allocating resources to various initiatives and operational requirements. The Company believes 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. Non-GAAP Statement of Operations Reconciliation
