MARLBOROUGH, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$HOLX #earnings–Hologic, Inc. (Nasdaq: HOLX) announced today the Company’s financial results for the fiscal first quarter ended December 30, 2023.


“We delivered strong revenue and profitability to start fiscal 2024, exceeding the high-end of our guidance for both the top-line and the bottom-line. Adjusting for the four fewer selling days in the quarter, we estimate our organic growth rate ex. COVID-19 was in the high single digits, highlighting the bigger, faster, stronger Hologic we are today,” said Stephen P. MacMillan, the Company’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Each one of our divisions delivered solid results setting the stage for another strong fiscal year. We are excited to continue our durable and dependable performance as we progress through fiscal 2024.”

Recent Highlights

Revenue of $1,013.1 million decreased (5.7%) for the quarter, or (6.4%) in constant currency, primarily driven by lower sales of COVID-19 assays compared to the prior year period, as expected.

Excluding COVID-19 revenues, total organic revenue grew 6.1%, or 5.2% on a constant currency basis despite the prior year period including four extra selling days.

Diagnostics revenue decreased (19.9%), or (20.6%) in constant currency, primarily driven by lower sales of COVID-19 assays compared to the prior year period.

Excluding COVID-19 revenues, Diagnostics revenue declined (0.9%) on an organic, constant currency basis.

Molecular Diagnostics revenue declined (24.8%), or (25.4%) in constant currency, primarily driven by lower sales of COVID-19 assays compared to the prior year period.

Excluding COVID-19 revenues, Molecular Diagnostics revenue grew 1.9% on an organic, constant currency basis.

Breast Health revenue increased 13.0%, or 12.2% in constant currency, primarily due to higher capital equipment revenue compared to the prior year period as supply chain headwinds impacted our ability to manufacture sufficient units to meet demand in fiscal Q1 2023.

Surgical revenue grew 5.3%, or 4.6% in constant currency, primarily driven by strong results from MyoSure, Fluent Fluid Management, and Laparoscopy.

Cash flow from operations remained strong in the first quarter at $220.0 million. In addition, during the current quarter the Company executed a $500 million accelerated share repurchase agreement (ASR), repurchased 2.2 million shares of its stock in open market trades for $150 million, and paid down $250 million of outstanding floating rate debt under its credit agreement.

GAAP gross margin of 56.0% decreased (150) basis points primarily due to the decline in COVID-19 assay sales compared to the prior year period. Non-GAAP gross margin of 60.8% decreased (190) basis points, also primarily due to the decline in COVID-19 assay sales compared to the prior year period.

GAAP operating margin of 19.6% decreased (480) basis points primarily due to the decline in COVID-19 assay sales compared to the prior year period. Non-GAAP operating margin of 28.5% decreased (260) basis points, also primarily due to lower COVID-19 assay revenue.

GAAP net income of $246.5 million increased 31.5% and Non-GAAP net income of $236.4 million decreased (11.8%). Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) was $277.8 million, a decrease of (16.5%). Adjusted EBITDA was $315.0 million, a decrease of (12.7%).

Financial Guidance for the Second Quarter and Full-Year Fiscal 2024

“Hologic delivered another strong financial performance in our fiscal first quarter of 2024, beating our estimates on both revenue and earnings” said Karleen Oberton, Hologic’s Chief Financial Officer. “We continue to operate from a position of strength, entering our second quarter with momentum and confidence to deliver on our financial commitments for fiscal 2024.”

Hologic’s financial guidance for the second quarter and full year 2024 is shown in the table below. The guidance is based on a full year non-GAAP tax rate of approximately 19.75%, and diluted shares outstanding of approximately 239 million for the full year. Constant currency guidance assumes that foreign exchange rates are the same in fiscal 2024 as in fiscal 2023. Organic revenue guidance for fiscal 2024 is in constant currency and excludes the divested Blood Screening and SSI ultrasound imaging businesses. Revenue from acquired businesses is generally included in organic revenue guidance starting a year after the acquisition. In fiscal 2024, all prior transactions are part of Hologic’s organic revenue base. Organic revenue excluding COVID-19 is in constant currency and is organic revenue excluding COVID-19 assay revenue, COVID-19 related revenue, and discontinued product sales in Diagnostics.

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; organic revenues excluding COVID-19, 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; adjusted EBITDA; net leverage ratio and adjusted ROIC. Organic revenue for the fiscal first quarter of 2024 excludes the divested Blood Screening and SSI ultrasound imaging businesses. Revenue from acquired businesses is generally included in organic revenue starting a year after the acquisition. Organic revenue excluding COVID-19 revenues is organic revenue less COVID-19 assay revenue, COVID-19 related sales of instruments, collection kits and ancillaries, COVID-19 related revenue from Diagenode and Mobidiag, as well as COVID-19 related license revenue, and revenues from discontinued products. 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; (ii) the impairment of goodwill and intangible assets and equipment and the loss to record assets held-for-sale to fair value less costs to sell; (iii) adjustments to record contingent consideration at fair value; (iv) charges to write-off inventory for a product line discontinuance; (v) restructuring charges, facility closure and consolidation charges (including accelerated depreciation), and costs incurred to integrate acquisitions (including retention, transaction bonuses, legal and professional consulting services); (vi) transaction related expenses for acquisitions; (vii) third-party expenses incurred related to the implementation of 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 foreign currency contracts to hedge operating results 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 impacts related to internal restructurings 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 income/expense, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization expense included in its non-GAAP net income. The Company defines its net leverage ratio as the principal amount of its debt net of cash and cash equivalents, divided by its EBITDA for the last four quarters. The Company defines its adjusted ROIC as its non-GAAP operating income tax effected by its non-GAAP effective tax rate divided by the sum of its average net debt and stockholders’ equity, which is adjusted to exclude the effects of goodwill and intangible assets and equipment impairment charges.

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.
