BEDFORD, Mass., Nov. 10, 2004 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Hologic, Inc. (NASDAQ: HOLX), a leading provider of women's diagnostic imaging systems and state-of- the-art digital imaging systems, today announced its results for the quarter and year ended September 25, 2004.
Highlights of the quarter include: * Record revenues of $63.9 million. * Record earnings of $5.2 million. * Record backlog of $61 million. * Record cash flow of over $11 million. * Record 44 Selenia full field digital mammography systems installed and recognized as revenue.
Fourth quarter fiscal 2004 revenues totaled $63,949,000, a 22% increase when compared to revenues of $52,404,000 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2003. For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2004, Hologic reported net income of $5,210,000, or $0.24 per diluted share, compared with net income of $2,599,000, or $0.13 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2003. The improvement in earnings primarily reflects the increase in revenues, led by the continued shift in product sales to the higher margin digital mammography systems (Selenia).
For the year ended September 25, 2004, revenues totaled $228,705,000, compared to revenues of $204,035,000 for the year ended September 27, 2003. For the year ended September 25, 2004, Hologic reported net income of $12,164,000, or $0.57 per diluted share, compared with net income of $2,882,000 or $0.14 per diluted share, for fiscal 2003.
During the fourth quarter, Hologic installed and recognized as revenue, 44 Selenia full field digital mammography systems. At September 25, 2004, the Company's backlog for orders of Selenia was 88 systems and total backlog for all products was $61 million.
"We ended our fiscal year on a very strong note with excellent fourth quarter gains in revenue and profit," said Jack Cumming, Chairman and CEO. "Demand for our Selenia full field mammography system increased in the fourth quarter compared with the first three quarters of the fiscal year, validating our business strategy and providing momentum for fiscal year 2005. We are moving ahead with optimism and believe we are well positioned for the future as we focus on serving the needs of our customers and enhancing shareholder value. We plan to continue to concentrate on our fundamental growth initiatives, including the introduction of innovative technologies that we believe will drive our business and benefit women's healthcare issues."
Beginning in the first quarter of fiscal 2004, the Company changed its segment reporting to reflect four market segments: Mammography; Osteoporosis Assessment; Digital Detectors; and All Other. The All Other segment includes the Company's mini C-arm, conventional general radiography service and digital general radiography systems businesses. Prior period segment information has been restated to reflect this change in the Company's segment reporting.
Fourth quarter financial overview by segment: * Mammography revenues increased 45% to $33,620,000 for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2004 from $23,119,000 for the same period in fiscal 2003. This increase was primarily due to continued increasing sales of Selenia in both the domestic and international markets. Operating income for this business segment in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2004 increased to $4,168,000 compared to operating income of $2,460,000 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2003. This increase in operating income in the current quarter was primarily due to the increase in revenues and the higher gross margins on the shift in product sales to Selenia. * Osteoporosis assessment revenues were $17,763,000 for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2004, compared to $18,219,000 for the same period in fiscal 2003. This decrease was primarily due to a reduction in service revenue. Operating income for this business segment in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2004 decreased to $2,063,000 from $2,883,000 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2003. The decrease in operating income in the current quarter was primarily due to a shift to lower priced systems sold into the United States primary care and international markets, reduced service revenue and higher service costs which were offset in part by lower selling, general and administrative expenses. * Digital detector revenues increased 138% to $5,663,000 for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2004 from $2,377,000 for the same period in fiscal 2003. This increase was primarily due to a significant increase in the number of general radiography and mammography digital detectors sold to other OEMs. Operating loss for this business segment in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2004 decreased to $867,000 from $916,000 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2003. The decrease in operating loss in the current quarter was primarily due to the increased revenues, that were partially offset by lower selling prices and an increase in research and development expenses. * All other revenues decreased 20% to $6,903,000 for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2004 from $8,689,00 for the same period in fiscal 2003. The decrease in revenues was primarily due to the shipment of fewer digital general radiography tables as this business is currently being phased out. Operating loss for this business segment in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2004 decreased to $111,000 from a loss of $1,718,000 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2003. This decrease in operating loss in the current quarter was primarily due to a reduction in the operating expenses allocated to the digital general radiography systems business.
