Quarterly Highlights

-- Completed acquisition of the imaging business of PerkinElmer, Inc.

-- Revenues increased 12% to $170 million

-- Gross margin was 35% | Adjusted gross margin* was 38%

-- Operating earnings margin was 9% | Adjusted operating earnings margin* was 14%

-- Net earnings were $0.28 per diluted share | Adjusted net earnings* were $0.44 per diluted share

Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2017 Results

Revenues increased 12% to $170 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2017 and included $27 million from two months of contribution from the acquired imaging business. This compares to revenues of $151 million in the year-ago quarter. The increase from the prior-year quarter was due to the additional revenues from the acquired imaging business partially offset by a 5% decline in organic revenues resulting from lower sales of X-ray tubes and digital detectors.

"The third quarter of last year saw strong year-over-year revenue growth as our business started to recover from an earlier downturn. While organic revenues declined in the third quarter of this year, for the trailing four quarters they were up 3%. Including revenues from the acquired imaging business, revenues for the trailing four quarters were up 8%," said Sunny Sanyal, Chief Executive Officer of Varex Imaging Corporation. "In our Medical segment, we have seen strong year-to-date growth in the mammography and dental markets and stability in the CT, radiographic and fluoroscopic markets. However, we have seen declines in our non-OEM aftermarket X-ray tube sales to third-party service organizations. In the Industrial segment, growth in the security market contributed to increased revenues during the quarter," said Sanyal.

Net earnings for the third quarter of 2017 were $11 million, or $0.28 per diluted share compared to net earnings of $18 million, or $0.47 per diluted share in the same quarter a year ago. The decrease in net earnings reflected the impact from $7 million in acquisition-related costs and lower gross margins, and was partially offset by other income from currency gains and minority investments. Adjusted net earnings* were $17 million, or $0.44 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2017 compared to adjusted net earnings* of $19 million, or $0.49 per diluted share in the prior year quarter.

Gross margin was $60 million or 35% of revenues in the third quarter of fiscal year 2017 compared to $63 million or 42% of revenues in the prior year quarter, which had an unusually favorable product mix and lower than average factory and quality costs. Adjusted gross margin* in the third quarter of fiscal year 2017 was $64 million or 38% of revenues, excluding amortization of intangibles and purchase accounting adjustments, compared to adjusted gross margin* of $63 million or 42% of revenues in the prior-year quarter.

Operating earnings were $16 million and operating margin was 9% in the third quarter of fiscal year 2017 compared to operating earnings of $28 million and operating margin of 19% in the prior-year quarter. The decline was due primarily to acquisition-related costs and lower gross margins. Adjusted operating earnings* were $24 million and adjusted operating margin* was 14% compared to adjusted operating earnings* of $30 million and adjusted operating margin* of 20% in the year-ago quarter.

In the third quarter of fiscal year 2017, R&D investment was 10.4% of revenues due primarily to major development projects related to CT X-ray tubes and digital detectors in the acquired imaging business. SG&A expenses were 15.5% of revenues, including acquisition-related costs of 1.9% of revenues. Using like measures, SG&A expenses were consistent with the prior-year quarter, and reflected lower administrative costs and higher international sales and marketing expenses.

Imaging Business Acquisition

On May 1, 2017, the company completed the acquisition of the imaging business of PerkinElmer, Inc. for $276 million. This imaging business provides digital flat panel detectors to OEM manufacturers of X-ray imaging systems and is highly complementary to Varex’s business. This acquisition adds a significant revenue stream, new anchor customers, and new technologies and technical expertise, along with a strong brand and expanded footprint in the industrial sector.

For the acquired imaging business for the last two months of the third quarter of fiscal year 2017:

-- Revenues were $27 million with 66% in the Medical segment and 34% in the Industrial segment

-- As a percent of revenues, gross margin was approximately 36%, R&D investment was approximately 10%, and SG&A expenses were approximately 6%

Over the coming years, the company expects to see annual revenue growth in this acquired business from both market expansion and synergies from cross-selling opportunities. By fiscal year 2021, the company expects to reach incremental annual revenues from synergies of approximately $20 million to $30 million. The timing of revenue synergies will depend on a number of factors, including the customer validation process for new imaging components and multi-year development cycles of customers’ new X-ray imaging systems.

The company expects to realize a number of cost synergies from this acquisition through decreases in SG&A expenses, greater leverage of its manufacturing scale, supply chain cost reductions, as well as rationalization of operations, products and R&D projects. By fiscal year 2021, the company anticipates reaching annual cost savings of $15 million to $20 million. In fiscal year 2018, the company is targeting approximately $5 million of cost savings.

Segment Information

Medical segment revenues increased 7% to $135 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2017 from $126 million in the same quarter a year ago due to revenues from the acquired imaging business partially offset by a decrease in X-ray tube and digital detector sales. The Medical segment gross margin was 34% in the third quarter of fiscal year 2017 compared to 41% in the prior-year quarter. This decline was due to acquisition related costs in the third quarter of fiscal year 2017, as well as an unusually favorable product mix and lower factory and quality costs in the prior year quarter.

Industrial segment revenues increased 39% to $35 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2017 from $26 million in the year-ago quarter due to revenues from the acquired imaging business and higher sales of X-ray tubes and connect-and-control components. The Industrial segment gross margin was 40% in the third quarter of fiscal year 2017 compared to 43% in the prior-year quarter.

Year-To-Date Fiscal Year 2017 Results

Revenues for the first nine months of fiscal year 2017 increased 8% to $482 million from $448 million in the prior-year period. Net earnings were $37 million, or $0.97 per diluted share, compared to net earnings of $47 million, or $1.23 per diluted share, in the first nine months of the year-ago period. Adjusted net earnings* for the first nine months of fiscal year 2017 were $47 million, or $1.23 per diluted share, compared to $51 million, or $1.35 per diluted share, in the same period of the prior year.

Gross margin in the first nine months of fiscal year 2017 was $176 million or 36% of revenues compared to a gross margin of $179 million, or 40% of revenues in the prior-year period. Adjusted gross margin* for the first nine months of fiscal year 2017 was $181 million or 38% of revenues compared to $180 million or 40% of revenues in the same prior-year period. In the first nine months of fiscal year 2017 the gross margin reflected higher costs of quality and a mix shift to lower margin products.

Balance Sheet

At the end of the third quarter of fiscal year 2017, cash and cash equivalents were $89 million. Cash flow from operations during the third quarter was $31 million. At the end of the third quarter of fiscal year 2017, the company had $510 million of debt outstanding. This included $286 million used during the third quarter to fund the acquisition and related credit facility fees. During the quarter, the company established interest rate swaps to convert $295 million of its term loan from a variable LIBOR-based rate to a fixed rate of 4.2%.

Varex Outlook

For the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2017, the company expects revenues to grow by 23% to 26%, including revenues from the acquired imaging business. For fiscal year 2017, the company expects that revenues will grow by 12% to 13% over fiscal year 2016, including approximately 9% to 10% of additional revenues from the acquired imaging business.

Including the operational impact of the acquired imaging business and its related financing, the company maintains its prior guidance and expects adjusted net earnings* for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2017 to be in a range of $0.50 to $0.54 per diluted share. For fiscal year 2017, the company expects adjusted net earnings* to be in a range of $1.73 to $1.77 per diluted share.

Guidance for the company’s net earnings per diluted share is provided on an adjusted basis only. This adjusted financial measure is forward-looking and without unreasonable effort the company is unable to provide a meaningful or accurate compilation of reconciling items to GAAP net earnings per diluted share due to the uncertainty of amounts and timing of unusual items, such as integration or restructuring costs.

Adjusted Non-GAAP Financial Measures

*Beginning with financial results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2017, the company will supplement its consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or "GAAP", with the use of "Adjusted" or "non-GAAP" financial measures of certain elements of financial performance. These adjusted or non-GAAP measures are not presented in accordance with, nor are they a substitute for, GAAP financial measures. These adjusted measures include: adjusted gross margin; adjusted operating earnings; adjusted operating earnings margin; adjusted net earnings; and adjusted net earnings per diluted share. The company is providing a reconciliation below of each adjusted financial measure used in this earnings release to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. The company is unable to provide without unreasonable effort a reconciliation of adjusted guidance measures to the corresponding GAAP measures on a forward-looking basis due to the potential significant variability and limited visibility of the excluded items discussed.

Discussion of Adjusted Financial Measures This press release includes adjusted financial measures derived from our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings. These measures are not presented in accordance with, nor are they a substitute for U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. These adjusted measures include: adjusted gross margin; adjusted operating earnings; adjusted operating earnings margin; adjusted net earnings; and adjusted net earnings per diluted share. We are providing a reconciliation above of each adjusted financial measure used in this earnings release to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. We have not provided a reconciliation of adjusted guidance measures to the corresponding GAAP measures on a forward-looking basis due to the potential significant variability and limited visibility of the excluded items discussed below.

We utilize a number of different financial measures, both GAAP and adjusted, in analyzing and assessing the overall performance of our business, in making operating decisions, and forecasting and planning for future periods. We consider the use of the adjusted measures to be helpful in assessing the performance of the ongoing operation of our business by excluding unusual and one-time costs. We believe that disclosing adjusted financial measures provides useful supplemental data that allows for greater transparency in the review of our financial and operational performance. We also believe that disclosing adjusted financial measures provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results and future prospects in the same manner as management and in comparing financial results across accounting periods and to those of peer companies.

Adjustments to GAAP measures include the following items:

Amortization of intangible assets: We do not acquire businesses and assets on a predictable cycle. The amount of purchase price allocated to intangible assets and the term of amortization can vary significantly and are unique to each acquisition or purchase. We believe that excluding amortization of intangible assets allows the users of our financial statements to better review and understand the historic and current results of our operations, and also facilitates comparisons to peer companies.

Purchase price accounting charges to cost of revenues: We may incur charges to cost of revenues as a result of acquisitions. We believe that excluding these charges allows the users of our financial statements to better understand the historic and current cost of our products, our gross margin, and also facilitates comparisons to peer companies.

Separation costs: We separated from Varian Medical Systems on January 30, 2017 and incurred non-operational expenses associated with the separation. We believe that excluding separation costs allows the users of our financial statements to better understand the historic and current results of our operations, and also facilitates comparisons to peer companies.

Restructuring charges: We incur restructuring charges that result from events, which arise from unforeseen circumstances and/or often occur outside of the ordinary course of our on-going business. Although these events are reflected in our GAAP financials, these unique transactions may limit the comparability of our on-going operations with prior and future periods.

Acquisition and integration related costs: We incur expenses or benefits with respect to certain items associated with our acquisitions, such as transaction costs, changes in the fair value of contingent consideration liabilities, gain or expense on settlement of pre-existing relationships, etc. We exclude such expenses or benefits as they are related to acquisitions and have no direct correlation to the operation of our on-going business. We also incur expenses or benefits with respect to certain items associated with our acquisitions, such as integration costs relating to acquisitions for any costs incurred prior to closing and up to 12 months after the closing date of the acquisition.

Impairment charges: We may incur impairment charges that result from events, which arise from unforeseen circumstances and/or often occur outside of the ordinary course of our on-going business and such charges may limit the comparability of our on-going operations with prior and future periods. We did not incur any impairment charges during the periods presented.

Other Non-Operational Costs: Certain items may be non-recurring, unusual, infrequent and directly related to an event that is distinct and non-reflective of the Company’s normal business operations. These may include such items as include legal settlements, environmental settlements, governmental settlements including tax settlements and other items of similar nature. We did not include any other non-operational costs during the periods presented.

Tax effect of Adjustments: We apply our GAAP consolidated effective tax rate to our adjusted financial measures as our historical annual consolidated effective tax rate has remained fairly consistent, and is expected to remain consistent for the foreseeable future. If applicable, this application of our effective tax rate excludes any tax settlements included in Other Non-Operational Costs above.
