September 12, 2014



By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Economics Week -- OSI Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: OSIS) announced financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2014.

Deepak Chopra, OSI Systems President and CEO, stated, "We are pleased to report record results for our fourth quarter. Led by our Security Division, we reported a 14% increase in sales with strong bookings highlighted by a significant Foreign Military Sales (FMS) contract from the U.S. Department of Defense. Our substantial backlog and pipeline of opportunities place us in a solid position heading into our new fiscal year."

The Company reported revenues of $260 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, an increase of 14% from the $228 million reported for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013. Net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 was $22.1 million, or $1.07 per diluted share, compared to net income of $11.8 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013. Excluding the impact of impairment, restructuring and other charges and the impact of tax elections discussed below, net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 would have been $24.5 million, or $1.19 per diluted share, compared to net income of $20.9 million, or $1.02 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013. Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 was $51.1 million, an increase of 17% from $43.8 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013.

For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2014, the Company reported revenues of $907 million, a 13% increase from the $802 million reported for fiscal 2013. Net income for fiscal 2014 was $47.9 million, or $2.33 per diluted share, compared to net income of $44.1 million, or $2.15 per diluted share, in fiscal 2013. Excluding the impact of impairment, restructuring and other charges and the impact of tax elections discussed below, net income for fiscal 2014 would have been $64.3 million, or $3.13 per diluted share, compared to net income of $56.8 million, or $2.76 per diluted share, for fiscal 2013. Adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 2014 was $164.6 million, an increase of 30% from $126.4 million for fiscal 2013.

As of June 30, 2014, the Company's backlog was approximately $0.8 billion, which was comparable to the backlog as of March 31, 2014. During fiscal 2014, the Company generated cash flow from operations of $129.2 million and capital expenditures were $54.6 million.

Mr. Chopra continued, "During the fourth quarter, our Security Division's sales growth was outstanding, increasing 45% over the prior year period. This strength was seen across multiple sales channels and product lines. With a record non-turnkey backlog, we believe we are well positioned for continued growth in this division."

Mr. Chopra further commented, "Our Healthcare Division finished a challenging year with a disappointing fourth quarter as revenues decreased 15% from the prior year period primarily due to uncertainties in the capital spending environment among North American hospitals. Despite this setback, we are optimistic that our expanded product offering and an anticipated rebound in the North American market will lead to a return to revenue growth."

Mr. Chopra concluded, "Our Optoelectronics and Manufacturing Division had essentially a flat fourth fiscal quarter in terms of revenues but delivered lower profitability due primarily to an unfavorable product sales mix. This division, however, continues to expand its customer base across several industries with OEMs that need a global manufacturing footprint. As we enter fiscal 2015, we will continue to look for ways to increase productivity and efficiencies and improve the operating margin of our Optoelectronics and Manufacturing Division."

During the third quarter of fiscal 2014, the Company made certain tax elections related to the turnkey program in Mexico to accelerate depreciation and realize cash tax savings of approximately $21 million. In doing so, the Company forfeited tax basis in certain fixed assets that resulted in a charge to income tax of $7.6 million. The Company made a similar election during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 that resulted in a charge to income tax of $6.8 million. These elections resulted in an effective tax rate of 36.9% and 36.4% for fiscal years 2014 and 2013, respectively, and 25.4% and 52.7% for the fourth quarters of fiscal 2014 and 2013, respectively. Had these elections not been made, the effective tax rate would have been 26.8% and 26.6% for fiscal 2014 and 2013, respectively, and 25.4% for each of the fourth quarters of fiscal 2014 and 2013. Such tax election is no longer available under Mexican tax law beginning January 1, 2014. Company Outlook - Guidance for Fiscal 2015 The Company announced that it anticipates fiscal 2015 sales to be between $960 million and $985 million. In addition, the Company anticipates approximately 12% - 20% growth in earnings per diluted share to $3.50 to $3.75, excluding the impact of impairment, restructuring and other charges, and the impact of certain tax elections. Presentation of a Non-GAAP Financial Measure; Non-GAAP Figures This earnings release includes a presentation of Adjusted EBITDA , a non-GAAP financial measure for the Company reported by the Company for the first time in fiscal 2014. Adjusted EBITDA is presented as a supplemental measure of the Company's financial performance that we believe is useful to investors because the excluded items may vary significantly in timing or amounts and may obscure trends useful in evaluating and comparing the Company's operating activities across reporting periods. The introduction of this measure coincided with the Company's shift to increased levels of capital-intensive turnkey screening services and the accompanying increased depreciation. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income, plus net interest expense, provision for income taxes and depreciation and amortization, as further adjusted to eliminate the impact of stock-based compensation, and impairment, restructuring and other charges. Not all companies use identical calculations and, accordingly, the Company's presentation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Adjusted EBITDA is not a recognized term under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and does not purport to be a substitute for net income as an indicator of operating performance or cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. In addition, the Company uses Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate the effectiveness of the Company's business strategies and because the Company's credit agreement uses measures similar to Adjusted EBITDA to measure compliance with certain covenants.

Discussion of adjustments to arrive at non-GAAP net income and diluted earnings per share figures and Adjusted EBITDA for the three-month periods and fiscal years ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 is provided to allow for the comparison of underlying earnings, net of impairment, restructuring and other charges and their related tax benefit and the impact from certain tax elections related to the turnkey program in Mexico. We believe that providing these non-GAAP figures provides additional insight into the ongoing operations of the Company. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. We also believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's results primarily because they exclude amounts that we do not view as reflective of ongoing operating results when planning and forecasting and when assessing the performance of the business. We believe that our non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate the comparison of results for current periods and guidance for future periods with results for past periods.
