Haemonetics Reports Double Digit Revenue, Operating Income, and EPS Growth for the Second Quarter Fiscal 2009
- Company Raises Annual Revenue and EPS Guidance -
BRAINTREE, Mass., Oct. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Haemonetics Corporation (NYSE: HAE) today reported second quarter fiscal 2009 GAAP net revenues of $146 million, up 20%; operating income of $24 million, up 62%; and net earnings per share of $0.57, up 35%.
Excluding restructuring charges in both fiscal 2008 and 2009, second quarter fiscal 2009 adjusted operating income was $24 million, up 52%, and adjusted earnings per share were $0.58, up 28%.(1)
Brad Nutter, Haemonetics' Chairman and CEO, said, "This is our sixth consecutive quarter of double digit revenue growth. We're seeing strength across our diversified product lines and geographies, and our prospects for growth have never been better."
Q2FY09 AND YEAR-TO-DATE FINANCIALS
As noted, Haemonetics' second quarter fiscal 2009 net revenues were $146 million, up 20%. Excluding the effects of currency, second quarter net revenues grew 15%. Year-to-date net revenues are $290 million, up 19%. Excluding the effects of currency, year-to-date net revenues grew 14%. The Company expects the impact of currency to be neutral to revenue growth in the second half of the year.
Haemonetics also reported second quarter gross profit of $75 million, up 25%. Gross margin grew 180 basis points to 51.2%. Year-to-date gross profit is $148 million, up 22%. Year-to-date gross margin is 50.9%, up 100 basis points.
Adjusted operating expenses were $51 million in the quarter, up 15%. Nearly one third of the incremental spending came from acquired businesses whose expenses were not included in the second quarter fiscal 2008 results and one third of incremental spending came from the impact of foreign currencies. Year-to-date adjusted operating expenses are $103 million, up 16%.
Second quarter adjusted operating income was $24 million, up 52%, and operating margin grew 340 basis points to 16.4%. Year-to-date adjusted operating income is $45 million, up 36%. Operating margin is 15.6%, up 200 basis points.
Second quarter and year-to-date interest and other income declined due to lower interest rates and lower invested cash as Haemonetics spent $44 million to acquire Haemoscope in November 2007 and $60 million on a share repurchase in the first half of fiscal 2009.
Haemonetics ended the quarter with $111 million in cash, and $14 million of debt. During the quarter, the Company generated $12 million of free cash flow. The Company also spent approximately $35 million in the quarter completing the $60 million share repurchase program which was authorized at the beginning of fiscal 2009.
PRODUCT LINE GROWTH
Plasma disposables revenue was $50 million for the quarter, up 33%. Year-to-date plasma disposables revenue is $97 million, up 32%. Haemonetics' plasma business continued to benefit from long-term contracts and from global growth in plasma collections as demand for IVIG increases. Haemonetics expects its plasma business will be an ongoing revenue growth driver for the Company.
Blood bank disposables revenue was $36 million for the quarter, up 6%. Year-to-date blood bank disposables revenue is $72 million, up 7%. Haemonetics' blood bank business benefited from unit growth in emerging markets, and from a contract with Canadian Blood Services which made Haemonetics its preferred provider of platelet collection systems. Haemonetics converted the Canadian Blood Services' blood banks to Haemonetics' technology over the course of the second half of fiscal 2008, realizing the comparative benefit of the conversions in the first half of fiscal 2009.
Red cell disposables revenue was $12 million for the quarter, up 8%. Year-to-date red cell disposables revenue is $24 million, up 8%. Revenue growth in the quarter was driven by the U.S. business and by the MCS(R) mobile collection system.
Software and services revenue was $10 million for the quarter, up 15%. Year-to-date software and services revenue is $20 million, up 7%. Strong software growth was driven by implementation of contracts negotiated in fiscal 2008, a new contract with the U.S. Department of Defense, and growth in the plasma industry.
Surgical/diagnostics disposables revenue was $21 million, up 36% for the quarter. Year-to-date surgical/diagnostics disposables revenue is $43 million, up 35%. Haemonetics acquired the TEG(R) Thrombelastograph(R) Hemostasis Analyzer business in November 2007, and the Surgical/Diagnostics revenue benefited from sales of the TEG system which were not included in the first half of fiscal 2008. The TEG business contributed $5 million in the quarter and $10 million year-to-date. Haemonetics will continue to see the benefit of this comparison through November 2008.
OrthoPAT(R) orthopedic perioperative autotransfusion system disposables revenue was $8 million for the quarter, up 7%. Year-to-date OrthoPAT disposables revenue is $17 million, up 7%. The Company expects revenue growth for the OrthoPAT system will gain momentum through the year.
Equipment revenue was $9 million for the quarter, up 30% and $17 million year-to-date, up 24%. Equipment sales were strong across multiple product lines and geographies, but the Company saw particularly strong revenue growth in platelet and cell processing systems.
FISCAL 2009 GUIDANCE
The Company raised its annual revenue guidance to 12-14% growth on stronger than planned sales of plasma disposables, blood bank disposables, and equipment sales, with strong contribution from each of the geographies. Adjusted operating income is expected to grow 21-25%, and adjusted earnings per share are expected to increase to a range of $2.38 to $2.44, up 13-16%. The Company further expects gross margin improvement of 120 basis points, operating margin improvement of 120 basis points, and a tax rate of 33.5-34.0% in the year. Adjusted fiscal 2009 guidance excludes a planned $5-7 million, or approximately $0.13-$0.17 per share, of costs to restructure Haemonetics' business, including manufacturing, quality, R&D, and Europe. In the quarter, Haemonetics incurred $0.3 million in pre-tax restructuring costs. Year-to-date restructuring costs are $2.2 million pre-tax.
For the full year 2009, the Company expects to generate $40 million of free cash flow.

Haemonetics has presented supplemental non-GAAP financial measures as part of this earnings release. A reconciliation is provided below that reconciles each non-GAAP financial measure with the most comparable GAAP measure. The presentation of non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, the most directly comparable GAAP measures. There are material limitations to the usefulness of non-GAAP measures on a standalone basis, including the lack of comparability to the GAAP financial results of other companies.
These measures are used by management to monitor the financial performance of the business, inform business decision making, and forecast future results. Performance targets for management are established based upon these non-GAAP measures. In the reconciliations below, we have removed restructuring costs from our GAAP expenses. These restructuring costs result from a significant transformation of our business during the second quarter and first six months of our fiscal years 2009 and 2008. This transformation resulted in the formation of a shared service center in Europe, exiting various offices across Europe and Japan and, most recently, in repositioning our technical operations organization. We believe this information is useful for investors because it allows for an evaluation of the Company with a focus on the performance of our core operations.
Non-GAAP Gross Profit
The use of these non-GAAP measures allows management to monitor the level of total gross profits without the costs of our business transformation. We establish our budgets, forecasts, and performance targets on this basis.
Non-GAAP S,G&A and Non-GAAP Operating Expenses
The use of this non-GAAP measure allows management to monitor the ongoing level of spend that is necessary to support the business in a period when we are not transforming our business or completing an acquisition of in-process research and development. We establish our budgets, forecasts, and performance targets excluding these costs.
Non-GAAP Operating Income and Non-GAAP Income Before Income Taxes
The use of these non-GAAP measures allows management to monitor the level of operating and total pre-tax profits without the costs of our business transformation. We establish our budgets, forecasts, and performance targets on this basis.
Non-GAAP Net Income and Earnings Per Share
The use of these non-GAAP measures allows management to monitor the level of net income and earnings per share excluding both the costs of our business transformation, as well as any related tax effects. We establish our budgets, forecasts, and performance targets on this basis.
