November 4, 2020

— Revenue of $1.347 Billion Increases 55.6%, 54.2% in Constant Currency —

— Organic Revenue Increases 72.5%, 70.9% in Constant Currency, as Strong Sales of COVID Tests Offset Declines in Other Businesses —

— Company Posts GAAP Diluted EPS of $1.88, Non-GAAP Diluted EPS of $2.07 —

MARLBOROUGH, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Hologic, Inc. (Nasdaq: HOLX) announced today the Company’s financial results for the fiscal fourth quarter ended September 26, 2020.

“We capped off an unprecedented fiscal year with remarkable financial results in our fourth quarter,” said Steve MacMillan, Hologic’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “These results were driven by the tireless efforts of our Diagnostics, European and supply chain teams to provide COVID-19 tests, and by steady improvement in our other businesses compared to the June quarter.”

Recent Highlights

  • Revenue increased 55.6% for the quarter, or 54.2% in constant currency, including revenue from the divested Medical Aesthetics business in the prior year period. Excluding material acquisitions and divestitures, organic revenue in the fourth quarter increased 72.5%, or 70.9% in constant currency.
  • Worldwide Molecular Diagnostics revenue of $818.9 million increased 375.8%, or 370.8% in constant currency, far exceeding expectations based on increased production of, and strong global demand for, the Company’s two SARS-CoV-2 assays that run on the fully automated Panther® and Panther Fusion® systems.
  • GAAP earnings per share (EPS) were $1.88, compared to ($0.46) in the prior year period. Non-GAAP EPS of $2.07 increased 218.5% over the prior year period.
  • Completed the acquisition of Acessa Health, strengthening the Company’s leadership position in the GYN surgical space, for approximately $80 million in cash plus contingent payments based on future revenue growth.
  • Completed a $950 million private placement of 3.250% senior unsecured notes due 2029. Used the proceeds of the offering and available cash to refinance the 4.375% senior unsecured notes due 2025, which were called and retired on October 15.
  • Cash flow from operations was $442.0 million in the fourth quarter. Based on this strong cash flow, the Company repaid $250 million of debt under its revolving credit facility, and repurchased 1.7 million shares of its common stock for $100.2 million.

Key financial results for the fiscal fourth quarter are shown in the table below.

Throughout this press release, all dollar figures are in millions, except EPS, unless otherwise noted. Some totals may not foot due to rounding. Unless otherwise noted, all results are compared to the corresponding prior year period. GAAP financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 reflect the Company’s 2019 10-K filing, which included additional impairment charges related to the Medical Aesthetics divestiture that were finalized after the Company issued its fourth quarter earnings release on November 6, 2019. Non-GAAP results exclude certain cash and non-cash items as discussed under “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures.” Constant currency percentage changes show current period revenue results as if the foreign exchange rates were the same as those in the prior year period. Organic revenue is on a constant currency basis and excludes the divested Blood Screening and Medical Aesthetics businesses, as well as the acquired SSI and Acessa businesses.

Financial Guidance for the First Quarter of Fiscal 2021

Hologic’s financial guidance for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 is shown in the table below. The guidance is based on a non-GAAP tax rate of approximately 22.75%, and diluted shares outstanding of approximately 263 million for the quarter. Constant currency guidance assumes that foreign exchange rates are the same in fiscal 2021 as in fiscal 2020. Current guidance assumes that recent foreign exchange rates persist for all of the first quarter of fiscal 2021. Organic revenue guidance is on a constant currency basis and excludes the divested Blood Screening and Medical Aesthetics businesses, as well as the acquired Acessa business.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company has presented the following non-GAAP financial measures in this press release: constant currency revenues; organic revenues; non-GAAP gross margin; non-GAAP operating expenses; non-GAAP operating margin; non-GAAP effective tax rate; non-GAAP net income; non-GAAP net margin; non-GAAP EPS; and adjusted EBITDA. 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, intangible assets and equipment; (ii) additional depreciation expense from acquired fixed assets and accelerated depreciation related to consolidation and closure of facilities; (iii) additional expenses resulting from the purchase accounting adjustment to record inventory at fair value and adjustments to contingent consideration; (iv) restructuring and divestiture charges and 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; (v) expenses related to its divested Cynosure business incurred subsequent to the disposition date primarily related to indemnification provisions for legal and tax matters (vi) transaction related expenses for divestitures and acquisitions; (vii) third-party expenses incurred related to implementing the European MDR/IVDR requirements and obtaining the appropriate approvals for its existing products (viii) debt extinguishment losses and related transaction costs; (ix) the unrealized (gains) losses on the mark-to-market of forward foreign currency contracts and foreign currency option 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 and losses resulting from the sale of investments; (xii) the one-time discrete impact of tax reform and other one-time impacts related to internal restructuring and non-operational items; (xiii) other one-time, non-recurring, unusual or infrequent charges, expenses or gains that may not be indicative of the Company's core business results; and (xiv) 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. The Company defines organic revenue to exclude the divested Blood Screening and Cynosure businesses, and the acquired SSI and Acessa businesses.

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.

To reflect an estimated annual effective tax rate of 22.75% and 21.75% for fiscal 2020 and 2019, respectively.

(12)
