First Quarter Expense Detail

Gross margin was 55.1% on a GAAP basis, and 65.2% on a non-GAAP basis.  GAAP gross margin improved by 60 basis points, while non-GAAP gross margin was flat, as a favorable product mix was offset by increased international sales and unfavorable currency fluctuations.

Operating expenses were $258.8 million on a GAAP basis, and $231.1 million on a non-GAAP basisGAAP operating expenses increased 2.3%, while non-GAAP operating expenses increased 4.6%, mainly due to higher marketing spending, increased compensation and an additional week of expenses.

Hologic's effective tax rate was 25.5% on a GAAP basis, and 31.0% on a non-GAAP basis. 

Other Key Financial Results

GAAP net income was $86.5 million, an increase of 1.8%.  Adjusted non-GAAP earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) were $269.1 million, an increase of 6.8%. 

Operating cash flow was $169.6 million.  Free cash flow, defined as operating cash flow less capital expenditures, was $144.9 million.

Total debt outstanding at the end of the quarter was $3.3 billion, a decrease of ($0.3) billion compared to the prior year period.

The Company ended the quarter with cash and cash equivalents of $646 million.

The combination of lower debt and EBITDA growth helped improve Hologic's leverage ratio (net debt over adjusted EBITDA) to 2.6 in the quarter.

Strong profit growth and lower debt have continued to improve Hologic's adjusted return on invested capital (ROIC).  On a trailing 12 months basis, ROIC of 13.1% improved 180 basis points compared to the prior year period.

Financial Guidance for Fiscal 2017

"We are updating our 2017 financial guidance based on our good first-quarter results, the divestiture of our blood screening business, and a revenue headwind of more than $20 million from a stronger U.S. dollar," said Bob McMahon, the Company's chief financial officer.  "Underlying our forecast, our expectations for our ongoing, base business are consistent with our initial constant currency guidance."

Hologic's financial guidance is based on a full year non-GAAP tax rate of approximately 31%, and diluted shares outstanding of between 287 and 289 million for the full year.  Constant currency guidance assumes that foreign exchange rates are the same in fiscal 2017 as in fiscal 2016.  Current guidance assumes that recent foreign exchange rates persist for all of fiscal 2017.

Hologic's financial guidance for fiscal 2017 is shown in the two tables immediately below.  In these tables, the "Current Guidance" rows include revenues and EPS from the divested blood screening business for part of the year, while the "Previous Guidance" rows include these contributions for the full year.

"Going forward, we forecast that the divestiture of the blood screening business will accelerate both our top- and bottom-line growth rates," Mr. McMahon said.  To illustrate this point, and to assist with "apples to apples" analyses of Hologic's ongoing, base business, the historical contributions of blood screening to Hologic's quarterly revenues and EPS are shown below:

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company has presented the following non-GAAP financial measures in this press release: constant currency revenues; non-GAAP gross profit; non-GAAP gross margin; non-GAAP operating expenses; non-GAAP income from operations; non-GAAP operating margin; non-GAAP interest expense; non-GAAP pre-tax income; non-GAAP net margin; non-GAAP net income; non-GAAP diluted EPS; adjusted EBITDA and return on invested capital. Constant currency presentations show reported period operating results as if the foreign exchange rates remain the same as those in effect in the comparable prior year period.  The Company defines its non-GAAP net income, EPS, and other non-GAAP financial measures to exclude, as applicable: (i) the amortization of intangible assets and impairment of goodwill and intangible assets; (ii) additional depreciation expense from acquired fixed assets and accelerated depreciation related to consolidation and closure of facilities ; (iii) non-cash interest expense related to amortization of the debt discount from the equity conversion option of the convertible notes; (iv) restructuring and divestiture charges and facility closure and consolidation charges; (v) transaction related expenses for divestitures and acquisitions  (vi) debt extinguishment losses and related transaction costs; (vii) the unrealized (gains) losses on the mark-to-market of forward foreign currency contracts for which the Company has not elected hedge accounting; (viii) litigation settlement charges (benefits); (ix) other-than-temporary impairment losses on investments and realized gains and (losses) resulting from the sale of investments; (x) other one-time, non-recurring, unusual or infrequent charges, expenses or gains that may not be indicative of the Company's core business results as detailed in our reconciliations of such adjustments; and (xi) income taxes related to such adjustments. 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.

These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered supplemental to, and not a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. The company's definition of these non-GAAP measures may differ from similarly titled measures used by others.

The non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release adjust for specified items that can be highly variable or difficult to predict. The company generally uses these non-GAAP financial measures to facilitate management's financial and operational decision-making, including evaluation of Hologic's historical operating results, comparison to competitors' operating results and determination of management incentive compensation. These non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of the company's operations that, when viewed with GAAP results and the reconciliations to corresponding GAAP financial measures, may provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting Hologic's business.

Because non-GAAP financial measures exclude the effect of items that will increase or decrease the company's reported results of operations, management strongly encourages investors to review the company's consolidated financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is included in the tables accompanying this release.

Future Non-GAAP Adjustments

Future GAAP EPS may be affected by changes in ongoing assumptions and judgments, and may also be affected by non-recurring, 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.
