Analogic Announces Financial Results for the Third Quarter Ended April 30, 2012 and Declares Quarterly Cash Dividend

Achieves 69% GAAP EPS Growth and 11% Non-GAAP Operating Margin

PEABODY, Mass., June 6, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Analogic Corporation (Nasdaq:ALOG), enabling the world's medical imaging and aviation security technology, today announced results for its third quarter ended April 30, 2012.

Highlights during the third quarter (comparisons are against Q3 of fiscal 2011) included:

Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 was $121.3 million, an increase of 3% compared with revenue of $117.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011. GAAP net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 was $7.3 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, compared with net income of $4.3 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2011.

Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter was $9.4 million, or $0.76 per diluted share, compared with $6.7 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, from the third quarter of fiscal 2011. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is included as an attachment to this press release.

For the first nine months of fiscal 2012, revenues totaled $365.6 million, up 8% from the same period in the prior year. Year-to-date GAAP net income was $31.0 million, or $2.45 per diluted share, up 154% and 153% respectively, from the same period of fiscal 2011. Year-to-date non-GAAP net income was $28.7 million, or $2.27 per diluted share, both up 49% from the same period of fiscal 2011.     

Jim Green, president and CEO, commented, "New product introductions and our ongoing focus on cost control drove continued double-digit non-GAAP operating margins and non-GAAP EPS growth of 41% in our third fiscal quarter. Revenue growth in our higher margin Security and Ultrasound product lines more than offset Medical Imaging, which was challenged by changes in customer ordering patterns and by European economic head winds. We remain confident in our ability to achieve our previously stated financial goals for fiscal 2012."

Jim Green added, "We were also pleased to see Forbes magazine name Analogic one of America's Most Trustworthy Companies. This is an honor for our Company and we are very proud of this achievement."

Segment Revenue

Revenue from our Medical Imaging segment was $72.8 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2012, down 2% from revenue of $74.6 million in the same period of fiscal 2011. Year-to-date, Medical Imaging revenue was $220.7 million, up 4% from the prior year. Medical Imaging revenue was down slightly during the quarter due in part to changes in ordering patterns in CT (computed tomography), offset by continued growth in our MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) and digital mammography sales.

Our Ultrasound segment revenue was $33.9 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2012, up 5% from revenue of $32.4 million in the same period of fiscal 2011. Year-to-date, Ultrasound revenue was $109.6 million, up 16% from the prior year. The increase in Ultrasound revenue for the quarter was driven by a double-digit increase in sales in North America, offset by lower sales in Europe and an unfavorable foreign currency impact.

Security Technology segment revenue was $14.6 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2012, up 43% from revenue of $10.2 million in the same period of fiscal 2011. Year-to-date, Security revenue was $35.3 million, up 11% from the prior year. Product revenue grew 39% during the third quarter driven by increased demand for checked-baggage screening systems in North America.                                                                                                                                      

Quarterly Cash Dividend

Analogic's Board of Directors, on June 4, 2012, declared a $0.10 cash dividend for each common share for its third fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2012. The cash dividend will be paid on July 2, 2012, to shareholders of record on June 20, 2012.

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 (GAAP) and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

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 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 GAAP presentation of cost of sales, research and development, selling and marketing, and 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. Additionally, a portion of our equity compensation is performance-based, which drives volatility in expense as estimated performance-based metrics are updated for actual and forecasted results. We believe 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.

BK Distributor Matter Inquiry-Related Costs

As previously disclosed in the Company's annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2011, the Company has identified transactions involving our Danish subsidiary, BK Medical, and certain of its foreign distributors, with respect to which the Company has raised questions concerning compliance with law and the Company's business policies. The Company has concluded that the identified transactions have been properly accounted for in our GAAP financial statements in all material respects. During the nine months ended April 30, 2012 we incurred $1.2 million of inquiry-related costs and have excluded this amount from our non-GAAP results.

Acquisition Related 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 and nine months ended April 30, 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 $1.0 million recorded in general and administrative expenses within operating income. During the nine months ended April 30, 2012 our results included an adjustment to contingent consideration for the acquisition of an OEM ultrasound transducer and probe product line of less than $0.1 million. 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 nine months ended April 30, 2011 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, Mass. manufacturing operations into our existing U.S. facilities. The total cost of $3.4 million, including severance and personnel related costs, was recorded as an operating expense during the nine months ended April 30, 2011and has been excluded from our non-GAAP results.

Gain on sale of other investments

On July 25, 2011, we entered into an agreement to sell our 25% interest in our China-based affiliate for $2.5 million. The book value of our interest in the China-based affiliate was written down to $0 in fiscal 2006, and we, upon final approval of the transaction by the Chinese government, recorded a gain of $2.5 million in the nine months ended April 30, 2012. This gain has been excluded from our non-GAAP results.

Taxes

For purposes of calculating non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, we adjust the provision (benefit from) 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. During the second quarter of fiscal year 2012, we received a refund of $12.0 million as the result of the completion of an Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") audit of federal income tax returns for the fiscal years ended July 31, 2003, 2005, and 2008. The refund was largely the result of Federal research and experimentation credits that carryover from the fiscal years 1991 through 2000 into the audited returns. We recorded a tax benefit for this refund, including the related interest, in the unaudited Consolidated Statement of Operations of $10.0 million in the nine months ended April 30, 2012. The tax benefit from the refund and interest were partially offset by related contingent professional fees of $2.7 million recorded in general and administrative expenses within income from operations in the unaudited Consolidated Statement of Operations in the nine months ended April 30, 2012. As these adjustments do not reflect the underlying performance of the business they have been excluded from non-GAAP net income.

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.
