Expense Detail

Gross margin was 52.0% on a GAAP basis, and 64.1% on a non-GAAP basis.  GAAP gross margin declined by 390 basis points, while non-GAAP gross margin declined by 160 basis points.  These declines were primarily related to sales mix associated with the divestiture of the higher-margin blood screening business and sales of lower-margin Cynosure products.  These factors were partially offset by manufacturing efficiencies, an increase in high-margin royalty revenue, and favorable foreign exchange rates.

Operating expenses were $308.5 million on a GAAP basis, and $275.8 million on a non-GAAP basis.  GAAP operating expenses increased 19.1% and non-GAAP operating expenses increased 17.1% primarily due to the inclusion of Cynosure expenses.

The quarterly effective tax rate was a benefit of (14.2%) on a GAAP basis, and a provision of 30.5% on a non-GAAP basis.  The difference in these rates was primarily due to the income tax effect of statutes of limitations expiring and audit settlements related to prior years not reflected in the non-GAAP results.

Other Key Financial Results

GAAP net income for the fourth quarter was $82.7 million, a decrease of (10.3%).  Adjusted non-GAAP earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) for the fourth quarter was $262.7 million, a decrease of (0.5%). 

Operating cash flow for the fourth quarter was $166.5 million.  Free cash flow, defined as operating cash flow less capital expenditures, was $132.9 million

During the fourth quarter, Hologic repurchased $85.9 million in principal of its 2012 and 2013 convertible notes for a total of $106.1 million.  The Company also repurchased 5.3 million shares of its common stock for $200.1 million.

Total debt outstanding at the end of the quarter was $3.3 billion.  The company ended the quarter with cash and equivalents of $0.5 billion, and a net leverage ratio (net debt over adjusted EBITDA) of 2.7 times.

On a trailing 12 months basis, adjusted ROIC of 12.6% declined 10 basis points compared to the prior year period.

Financial Guidance for Fiscal 2018

"We expect to post solid, mid-single-digit organic revenue growth in fiscal 2018," said Bob McMahon, Hologic's Chief Financial Officer.  "At the same time, after adjusting for the blood screening divestiture, we anticipate much faster EPS growth driven by healthy operating margin expansion."

For fiscal 2018, "organic revenue" is defined as total revenue less blood screening revenue for the full year and medical aesthetics revenue for the first two quarters of fiscal 2018.  Medical aesthetics revenue is included in organic revenue for the third and fourth quarters of fiscal 2018.  In addition, organic revenue growth rates adjust for the extra selling days in Hologic's 2017 fiscal year, and non-recurring royalty revenue in Diagnostics.  Together, these two non-recurring factors are estimated to contribute approximately 100 basis points to organic growth.

Hologic's financial guidance for fiscal 2018 is shown in the two tables immediately below.  As a reminder, percentage changes versus the prior year are affected by the blood screening divestiture and the Cynosure acquisition, both of which closed in the second quarter of fiscal 2017.  The guidance is based on a full year non-GAAP tax rate of approximately 31% and diluted shares outstanding of 284 million for the full year.  Constant currency guidance assumes that foreign exchange rates are the same in fiscal 2018 as in fiscal 2017.  Current guidance assumes that recent foreign exchange rates persist for all of fiscal 2018.

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; (ii) additional depreciation expense from acquired fixed assets and accelerated depreciation related to business consolidation and closure of facilities; (iii) additional expense resulting from the purchase accounting adjustment to record inventory at fair value; (iv) non-cash interest expense related to amortization of the debt discount from the equity conversion option of the convertible notes; (v) restructuring and divestiture charges, facility closure and consolidation charges and costs incurred to integrate acquisitions (including retention, transaction bonuses, legal and professional consulting services) and separate divested businesses from existing operations; (vi) transaction related expenses for divestitures and acquisitions; (vii) gain on disposal of business; (viii) debt extinguishment losses and related transaction costs; (ix) the unrealized (gains) losses on the mark-to-market of forward foreign currency contracts for which the Company has not elected hedge accounting; (x) litigation settlement charges (benefits) and non-income tax related charges (benefits); (xi) other-than-temporary impairment losses on investments and realized (gains) losses resulting from the sale of investments; (xii) 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 (xiii) 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.  "Organic" presentations are non-GAAP measures that are adjusted as described under "Financial Guidance for Fiscal 2018."

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 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.

Explanatory Notes to Reconciliations:

(1)

To reflect non-cash expenses attributable to the amortization of intangible assets.

(2)

To reflect non-cash fair value adjustments for additional depreciation expense related to the fair value write-up of fixed assets acquired in the Gen-Probe acquisition and accelerated depreciation expense related to facility closure and business consolidation.

(3)

To reflect restructuring and divestiture charges, and certain costs associated with the Company's integration and facility consolidation plans, which primarily include retention and transfer costs, as well as costs incurred to integrate acquisitions including consulting, legal and accounting fees, and expenses incurred to separate the divested blood screening business from the molecular diagnostics operations. These costs do not include those incurred to provide transition services to Grifols, nor amounts received from Grifols under transition services agreements.

(4)

To reflect expenses incurred with third parties related to acquisitions and divestitures prior to when such transactions are completed. These expenses primarily comprise broker fees, legal fees, and consulting and due diligence fees.

(5)

To reflect the net impact from miscellaneous transactions during the period, including legal settlements.

(6)

To reflect certain non-cash interest expense related to the amortization of the debt discount from the equity conversion option of the Company's convertible notes.

(7)

To reflect losses for the repurchases of $285.9 million principal amount of the 2012 and 2013 Convertible Notes in fiscal 2017 and $274.3 million principal amount of the 2010 and 2012 Convertible Notes in fiscal 2016.

(8)

To reflect realized gains on the sale of available-for-sale marketable securities and a cost-method investment.

(9)

To reflect non-cash unrealized losses (gains) on the mark-to market on outstanding forward foreign currency contracts, which do not qualify for hedge accounting.

(10)

To reflect the gain realized on the sale of the Blood Screening business to Grifols.

(11)

To reflect the fair value step up of inventory sold during the period related to acquisitions.

(12)

To reflect a non-income tax benefit in the third quarter of fiscal 2017 of $12.4 million, net from refunds received from amending the Company's Medical Device Excise tax filings, and charges recorded in fiscal 2017 of $35.6 million as the Company determined during the period that a loss became probable associated with a non-income tax issue currently under audit.

(13)

To reflect an estimated annual effective tax rate of 30.50% and 31.75% for fiscal 2017 and 2016, respectively, applied to Non-GAAP pretax income. The calculation of this rate excludes certain items that impact the GAAP provision for income taxes consistent with the Company's exclusion of items from pre-tax Non-GAAP income.

(14)

Non-GAAP earnings per share was calculated based on 284,741 and 285,653 weighted average diluted shares outstanding for the three and twelve months ended September 30, 2017 and 282,494 and 286,156 for the three and twelve months ended September 24, 2016.

(15)
