BEDFORD, Mass., Jan. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Hologic, Inc. (NASDAQ: HOLX) announced today the Company's financial results for the first fiscal quarter ended December 27, 2014.

Revenues for the quarter were $652.8 million, an increase of 6.6% compared to the prior year period.  On a constant currency basis, revenues increased 7.7%.  Revenues grew in all four business segments:

GAAP net income was $29.2 million in the quarter, compared to a net loss of ($5.3 million) in the prior year period.  Non-GAAP net income of $111.6 million increased by 18.6% and represented 17.1% of revenues, compared to 15.4% of revenues in the prior year period. 

GAAP earnings per share (EPS) were $0.10 on a fully diluted basis in the quarter, compared to a net loss per diluted share of ($0.02) in the prior year period.  Non-GAAP EPS were $0.39 on a fully diluted basis in the quarter, an increase of 15.4% compared to the prior year period.

"We posted strong organic revenue and earnings growth across the board in the first quarter," said Steve MacMillan, Hologic's President and Chief Executive Officer. "We are pleased with the pace of progress we have made, as we recorded our fourth consecutive quarter of sequential revenue growth, and our best quarterly growth rate in a number of years.  While we realize there is still work to do, this quarter's results show that great products, great people, and new leadership are coming together in a powerful way at the Company.  As a result, we are raising our financial outlook for the year."

Revenue Detail

In this section, all revenues are on a reported basis for the first quarter of fiscal 2015, and are compared to the prior year period.

Diagnostics revenues of $304.1 million increased 6.4%.  This increase was driven by a 26.3% increase in blood screening revenue from our partner Grifols, mainly from new business with the Japanese Red Cross, and by a 5.6% increase in molecular diagnostics revenue, mainly from the Aptima® product line.  Revenue from cytology and perinatal products declined by 1.2%, a lower rate of decline than in recent quarters.

Breast Health revenues of $242.0 million grew 6.9%.  This increase was primarily driven by a 10.9% increase in breast imaging and service revenue, as customers continued to adopt Hologic 3D mammography, while interventional breast revenue declined 2.3%. 

GYN Surgical revenues of $84.4 million grew 7.0%, driven by a 27.4% increase in MyoSure system sales.  NovaSure system sales also increased 0.1% in the quarter, an improvement compared to the declines seen in recent quarters.

Skeletal Health revenues of $22.3 million grew 4.5%, primarily driven by increased sales of the Company's new Horizon bone densitometry system.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flows

Hologic continues to focus on reducing its debt.  Total debt outstanding at quarter-end was $3,954.8 million, a $312.9 million decrease from the end of fiscal 2014 that resulted primarily from a $300 million voluntary pre-payment of the Term Loan B facility in December.  The Company ended the first fiscal quarter with cash and equivalents of $549.1 million

Adjusted non-GAAP earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) were $233.1 million in the quarter.  Operating cash flow was $153.5 million, while free cash flow, defined as operating cash flow less capital expenditures, was $132.4 million

Updated Financial Guidance

Based on the Company's strong performance in the first quarter of fiscal 2015, Hologic is raising its full year 2015 revenue and non-GAAP EPS guidance, as shown in the table below.  The guidance for reported results is based on recent foreign exchange rates.  Percentage changes from the prior year exclude one-time benefits associated with the restructuring of the Roka license, which totaled $20.1 million of revenue and $0.05 of EPS in 2014.

Since the Company provided its initial financial guidance on November 5, 2014, the US dollar has strengthened significantly.  If the US dollar were at the same level today as it was in early November, the Company's updated revenue guidance would have been approximately $25 million higher, and its updated EPS guidance would have been approximately $0.02 higher.

For the second quarter of fiscal 2015, the Company now expects:

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company has presented the following non-GAAP financial measures in this press release: constant currency revenues; net income; EPS; and adjusted EBITDA. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as its non-GAAP net income plus net interest expense, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization expense included in its non-GAAP net income. The Company defines its non-GAAP net income and EPS to exclude: (i) the amortization of intangible assets and impairment of goodwill and intangible assets; (ii) acquisition-related charges and effects, such as charges for contingent consideration, transaction costs, integration costs including retention, and credits and/or charges associated with the write-up of acquired inventory and fixed assets to fair value; (iii) non-cash interest expense related to amortization of the debt discount from the equity conversion option of the convertible debt securities; (iv) restructuring and divestiture charges; (v) debt extinguishment losses and related transaction costs; (vi) litigation settlement charges (benefits); (vii) other-than-temporary impairment losses on investments; (viii) other one-time, nonrecurring, unusual or infrequent charges, expenses or gains that may not be indicative of the Company's core business results; and (ix) income taxes related to such adjustments.

The Company believes the use of non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors by eliminating certain of the more significant effects of its acquisitions and related activities, non-cash charges resulting from the application of GAAP to convertible debt instruments with cash settlement features, charges related to debt extinguishment losses, investment impairments, litigation settlements, and restructuring and divestiture initiatives. These non-GAAP measures also reflect how Hologic manages its businesses internally. In addition to the adjustments set forth in the calculation of the Company's non-GAAP net income and EPS, its adjusted EBITDA eliminates the effects of financing, income taxes and the accounting effects of capital spending. As with the items eliminated in its calculation of non-GAAP net income, these items may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to the overall operating performance of a company's business. When analyzing the Company's operating performance, investors should not consider these non-GAAP financial measures as a substitute for net income prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Future Non-GAAP Adjustments

Future GAAP EPS may be affected by changes in ongoing assumptions and judgments relating to the Company's acquired businesses, and may also be affected by nonrecurring, unusual or unanticipated charges, expenses or gains, which are excluded in the calculation of the Company's non-GAAP EPS guidance as described in this press release. It is therefore not practicable to reconcile non-GAAP EPS guidance to the most comparable GAAP measure.
