BEDFORD, Mass., Nov. 8, 2006 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Hologic, Inc. (NASDAQ: HOLX), a leading provider of state-of-the-art diagnostic and digital imaging systems directed towards women's health, today announced its results for the quarter and year ended September 30, 2006.
Highlights of the quarter include: * Record revenues of $154.1 million. * Record 193 Selenia full field digital mammography systems installed and recognized as revenue. * Record backlog of $194.7 million.
Fourth quarter fiscal 2006 revenues totaled $154,055,000, a 97% increase when compared to revenues of $78,217,000 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2005. For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006, Hologic reported a net loss of $1,473,000, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared with net income of $9,475,000, or $0.20 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2005. Fourth quarter fiscal 2006 income from operations totaled $7,560,000 compared with $11,409,000 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2005. The reduction in the Company's net income and income from operations in the current quarter were primarily attributable to the in-process research and development and other acquisition related charges incurred in the quarter, and the addition of stock based compensation charges resulting from the application of FASB Statement 123R which became effective at the beginning of the fiscal year. These expenses were partially offset by the significant increase in revenues and gross profit from the increase in sales of Selenia® full-field digital mammography systems, and the net reduction in operating expenses resulting from a gain on the disposition of certain intellectual property. As further described below, the results of the Company's core operations, excluding the effect of these items, improved significantly from the fourth quarter of fiscal 2005. Included in the current quarter's results are the operations of (i) AEG Elektrofotografie ("AEG"), acquired on May 2, 2006, (ii) R2 Technology, Inc. ("R2"), acquired on July 13, 2006 from the date of acquisition through quarter-end, and (iii) Suros Surgical Systems, Inc. ("Suros"), acquired on July 27, 2006 from the date of acquisition through quarter-end. Earnings per share information for 2005 has been restated to reflect the Company's 2-for-1 stock split effected on November 30, 2005.
Our non-GAAP adjusted net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006 increased 64% to $15.5 million compared to our net income of $9.5 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2005. Our fourth quarter non-GAAP adjusted net income excludes the following:
* a $15.1 million charge to research and development for in-process R&D acquired from R2 and Suros; * a $3.6 million charge to operating expenses to amortize the intangible assets acquired from AEG, Fischer, R2 and Suros; * a $1.5 million charge for stock-based compensation expense under FASB Statement 123R; and * a $5.1 million net reduction in operating expenses resulting from the sale and non-exclusive license back of Mammotest intellectual property acquired from Fischer Imaging to Siemens for $6.5 million less an impairment charge of $1.4 million to the carrying value of the underlying technology.
Non-GAAP adjusted net income is a non-GAAP financial measure. A reconciliation of this adjusted net income to the Company's net income/(loss) for the fourth quarter and full year of fiscal 2006 is set forth in the supplemental disclosure attached to this press release. The Company believes that this non-GAAP measure is useful to investors in comparing the results of operations in fiscal 2006 to the comparable period in fiscal 2005 by eliminating certain of the more significant effects of the acquisitions and dispositions that took place in fiscal 2006, as well as the Company's adoption of FASB Statement 123R at the beginning of fiscal 2006. Management also uses this non-GAAP financial measure for this purpose. When analyzing the Company's operating performance, investors should not consider this non-GAAP measure as a substitute for net income/(loss) prepared in accordance with GAAP.
Also included in the Company's financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006 was a $3.3 million write-up of acquired inventory to fair value for purchase accounting purposes which depressed the margins earned on sales of that inventory recorded this quarter and $420,000 of incremental compensation provided to certain acquired employees associated with their retention. Comparable charges were not incurred during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2005.
During the fourth quarter, Hologic recognized as revenue the sale of 193 Selenia full-field digital mammography systems. At September 30, 2006, the Company's backlog for orders of Selenia was 455 systems, and total backlog for all products increased to $194.7 million, the highest quarterly backlog in the Company's history and a 17.6% increase over the backlog at June 24, 2006.
Hologic's effective tax rate was 120% of pre-tax earnings in the current quarter and 48% for the 2006 fiscal year. This rate is higher than the effective tax rate of 19% for the full 2005 fiscal year due to the permanent non-deductibility for tax purposes of the AEG, R2 and Suros in-process research and development expenses. In fiscal 2007, the Company expects its effective tax rate to return to a more normalized 38%.
For the year ended September 30, 2006, revenues increased 61%, to $462,680,000 compared to revenues of $287,684,000 in the year ended September 24, 2005. For the year ended September 30, 2006, Hologic recognized net income of $27,423,000, or $0.56 per diluted share, compared with net income of $28,256,000, or $0.63 per diluted share, for fiscal 2005. As set forth in the attached reconciliation table, the Company's non-GAAP adjusted net income for fiscal 2006 increased 84% to $52.0 million compared to the Company's net income of $28.3 million in fiscal 2005.
"We are very pleased to report record revenues for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006, in addition to full year revenue growth of 61% over fiscal 2005," said Jack Cumming, Chairman and CEO. "Our recent acquisitions contributed to the strong top line growth and laid the foundation for another successful year. Management's focus for the coming fiscal year will be to execute our business strategy relative to our core business, deliver anticipated growth from our acquisitions, improve our margins through lean initiatives and continue to invest in innovation."
Beginning in fiscal 2006, the Company combined its previously reported mammography and digital detector operating segments to better reflect how the Company views its operations and manages its business. In fiscal 2006, the primary function of the digital detector business is to support the Company's mammography product line. The Company now has three reporting segments: Mammography/Breast Care, Osteoporosis Assessment and All Other. The recently acquired AEG operation is included in All Other. The recently acquired R2 and Suros operations are included in Mammography/Breast Care. Segment information for 2005 has been restated to conform to the 2006 presentation.
Fourth quarter financial overview by segment: * Mammography/Breast Care revenues increased 113% to $114,198,000 for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006 from $53,544,000 for the same period in fiscal 2005. This increase was primarily due to continued increasing sales of Selenia and to a lesser extent, the inclusion of the recently acquired Suros and R2 operations. Operating income for this business segment in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006 decreased slightly to $6,435,000 compared to operating income of $6,980,000 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2005. The operating income in the current quarter included the significant in-process research and development and other acquisition related expenses totaling approximately $18.6 million less the net gain on the sale of intellectual property of approximately $5,100,000. Mammography/Breast Care costs and expenses in 2006 included $1,091,000 of stock-based compensation under FASB Statement 123R. * Osteoporosis assessment revenues decreased slightly to $19,195,000 for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006 from $19,640,000 for the same period in fiscal 2005. This decrease was primarily due to a slight shift to lower end bone densitometry systems with lower average selling prices. Operating income for this business segment in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006 was $1,658,000 compared to operating income of $3,628,000 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2005 reflecting a shift to more systems with fewer features, lower selling prices and earning lower gross margins. Osteoporosis assessment costs and expenses in 2006 included $364,000 of stock-based compensation under FASB Statement 123R. * All other revenues, which includes the Company's mini C-arm, extremity MRI, AEG, conventional general radiography service and digital general radiography systems businesses increased 310% to $20,662,000 for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006 from $5,033,000 for the same period in fiscal 2005. The increase in revenues was primarily due to the $11,961,000 of revenues from the AEG businesses acquired on May 2, 2006, and to a much lesser extent from the initial sales of the new line of extremity MRI systems of $2,828,000. The operating loss for this business segment in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006 was $533,000 compared to operating income of $801,000 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2005. This decrease in operating income in the current quarter was primarily due to certain sales and marketing expenses for the extremity MRI product line launched in the current fiscal year, higher product costs on a new mini C-arm product resulting in lower gross margins and a decrease in revenue from the conventional general radiography service business. Costs and expenses for this business segment in 2006 include $57,000 of stock-based compensation under FASB Statement 123R.

HOLOGIC, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES CONSOLIDATED STATEMENTS OF OPERATIONS AND RECONCILIATION OF GAAP NET INCOME (LOSS) TO NON-GAAP ADJUSTED NET INCOME (Unaudited) (In thousands, expect per share data)
The Company has provided net income on a non-GAAP basis for the fourth quarter and year to date for fiscal 2006 excluding acquisition related charges, stock compensation expense and a net gain on the sale of intellectual property. A reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to the Company's net income/(loss) for the fourth quarter and full year of fiscal 2006 is set forth in the supplemental schedule above. The Company believes that this non-GAAP measure is useful to investors in comparing the results of operations in fiscal 2006 to the comparable period in fiscal 2005 by eliminating certain of the more significant effects of the acquisitions and dispositions that took place in fiscal 2006, as well as the Company's adoption of FASB Statement 123R at the beginning of fiscal 2006. When analyzing the Company's operating performance, investors should not consider this non-GAAP measure as a substitute for net income/(loss) prepared in accordance with GAAP.
(1) To exclude the impact of stock based compensation expense in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards ("SFAS") No. 123R. Effective September 25, 2005, Hologic adopted SFAS No. 123R and elected not to apply this new accounting standard to its prior years' financial statements. Prior to such date, Hologic disclosed in the notes to its financial statements what the related expense and impact to earnings per share (EPS) would have been (i.e. on a pro forma basis) had it elected to expense the fair value of employee stock options in accordance with SFAS No. 123. For the three and twelve months ended September 30, 2006, the total pro forma pre-tax expense for all stock based compensation expense in accordance with SFAS No. 123 was $1,512 and $3,951, respectively, resulting in dilution to GAAP EPS of $0.03 and $0.08 per share, respectively, on a pro forma basis. The non-cash charge for stock based compensation expense in fiscal 2007 is currently estimated to be approximately $6,500, pre-tax. (2) To exclude the ongoing, non-cash amortization of the intangible assets acquired during fiscal 2006. The non-cash charge for the amortization of these assets in fiscal 2007 is currently estimated to be approximately $16,000 pre-tax. (3) To exclude the net reduction in operating expenses resulting from the sale of Mammotest intellectual property acquired from Fischer Imaging to Siemens for $6,500 less an impairment charge of $1,400 to the carrying value of the underlying technology. (4) To exclude the non-cash expense associated with writing off the acquired in-process research and development related to the R2 and Suros acquisitions in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006 in the amounts of $10,200 and $4,900, respectively. (5) To exclude the non-cash expense associated with writing off the acquired in-process research and development related to the AEG acquisition in the third quarter of fiscal 2006. (6) To exclude the non-cash expense associated with writing off the acquired in-process research and development related to the acquisition of the Fischer Imaging intellectual property in the first quarter of fiscal 2006. (7) To reflect the tax effect of the above adjustments, except for the non-tax write-off of the acquired in-process research and development related to the AEG, R2 and Suros acquisitions.
