Cyberonics Reports Fiscal 2013 Second Quarter Results

Record Sales of $63 million - 17% Growth

HOUSTON, Nov. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cyberonics, Inc. (NASDAQ:CYBX) today announced results for the quarter ended October 26, 2012.

Quarterly highlights

Operating results for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2012 include:

  • Net sales of $63.0 million, an increase of 17% from $53.7 million;
  • Record worldwide unit sales of 3,230, an increase of 16%;
  • U.S. epilepsy unit sales increased by an estimated 12%;
  • Income from operations of $20.2 million, an increase of 34% from $15.1 million; and
  • Adjusted non-GAAP income per diluted share of $0.44 compared with $0.32, an increase of 36%(1) (2).

(1) The financial and operating results reported for the fiscal quarter ended October 26, 2012 include a $1.3 million gain on warrant liability.  The impact of this gain has been excluded for the purposes of non-GAAP comparisons between the fiscal quarter ended October 26, 2012 and the fiscal quarter ended October 28, 2011.  An analysis of the impact on the Consolidated Statement of Operations appears on the last page of this release.

(2) Numbers and percentages may be affected by rounding.

As discussed below under "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures," the company presents in this release certain non-GAAP financial measures: adjusted non-GAAP net income, adjusted non-GAAP income per diluted share and adjusted EBITDA.  Investors should consider non-GAAP measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Please refer to the attached reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures.

Results and objectives

"The second quarter of fiscal 2013 was another record quarter for sales, the seventh consecutive quarter that revenues have reached a new level," commented Dan Moore, Cyberonics' President and Chief Executive Officer.  "Our U.S. sales team continues to deliver strong results, with unit sales increasing by 12% to a record of 2,339 units and sales revenue totaling more than $50 million for the second successive quarter, and increasing by more than 15% compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2012.  Growth in both new patients and replacement activity was consistent with our expectations for the year, and our latest generator, AspireHC™, continues to be well received by customers, reaching 17% of total U.S. unit sales for this quarter.

"International net sales increased to $11.1 million from the $8.6 million recorded in the comparable quarter of fiscal 2012, with foreign exchange movements negatively impacting revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 by approximately $400,000.  On a constant currency basis, the increase in international sales was 33%.

"European unit sales growth continued in double digits and overall international unit growth increased by a robust 29% over the second quarter of fiscal 2012.  These unit sales were favorably impacted by increased shipments to Japan, as well as improvements in all other international regions.  

"Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter was $23.8 million, and our available cash balance at October 26, 2012 exceeded $118 million.  Our balance sheet, now free of interest-bearing debt, continues to provide flexibility as we strive to increase shareholder value. 

"During this quarter, we took additional steps toward our goal of building a second manufacturing facility.  We chose Costa Rica as the location for our international manufacturing site and entered into contracts for the acquisition of the land and building construction.  This facility, expected to be fully operational in fiscal 2015, will provide faster global market access due to regulatory flexibility, favorable tax policies, and additional and complementary manufacturing capability.

"On our last call, we stated that we intended to continue to invest in companies involved in developing medical devices to treat patients with epilepsy.  On September 20, 2012 we announced an initial investment of 2 million euros in cerbomed GmbH., a German company developing a non-invasive neurostimulation device for the treatment of epilepsy.  The investment could increase to a total of 5.5 million euros subject to the achievement of certain milestones, and we hold an exclusive option for worldwide sales and distribution rights.

"Our goals for fiscal 2013 remain unchanged:

  • Continued market penetration in the U.S.;
  • Ongoing improvement in international markets; and
  • Product development execution including focus on clinical trial enrollments.

"As the company celebrates the 25th anniversary of its founding, the Cyberonics team is committed to achieving these goals and making fiscal 2013 a successful year in all areas."

Fiscal 2013 guidance

Based on the financial and operating results for the first half of fiscal 2013, Cyberonics is increasing guidance for fiscal 2013 as follows:

  • Net sales guidance in the range from $246 million to $249 million (previous guidance of $241 million to $244 million). 
  • Income from operations in the range from $73 million to $75 million (previous guidance of $70 million to $72 million). 
  • Adjusted net income in the range from $43 million to $45 million (previous guidance of $41.5 million to $43.5 million).
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share (EPS) in the range from $1.56 to $1.62 (previous guidance of $1.49 to $1.59).

Guidance for adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share (EPS) excludes $2.5 million (net of tax), or $0.09 cents per share, for our investment write-down in the first quarter, and by $1.3 million, or $0.04 cents per share, for the gain on warrant liability.

The anticipated amount of the medical device tax, scheduled to be implemented on January 1, 2013, is excluded from income from operations guidance, but included in net income and diluted earnings per share guidance above.

Additional details will be provided during today's conference call and in an investor presentation summarizing the company's second quarter fiscal year 2013 results, which is available in the investor relations section of Cyberonics' corporate website at http://www.cyberonics.com.

Use of non-GAAP financial measures

In this press announcement, management has disclosed financial measurements that present financial information not in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).  These measurements are not a substitute for GAAP measurements, although company management uses these measurements as aids in monitoring the company's ongoing financial performance from quarter to quarter and year to year on a regular basis and for benchmarking against other medical technology companies.  Adjusted non-GAAP net income and adjusted non-GAAP income per diluted share measure the net income and income per share of the company excluding for fiscal 2013 the gain on warrant liability which management considers relevant for an investor's understanding of the company's financial performance.  Management uses and presents adjusted non-GAAP net income and adjusted non-GAAP income per diluted share because management believes they facilitate an understanding of the financial impact of such unusual items on the company's short- and long-term financial trends.  Management also uses such adjusted non-GAAP items to forecast and to evaluate the operational performance of the company, as well as to compare results of current periods to prior periods on a consistent basis.  Adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") measures the income from operations of the company and excludes the aforementioned item, as well as non-cash equity compensation and other income (expense) items.

Non-GAAP financial measures used by the company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.  Investors should consider non-GAAP measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Please refer to the attached reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures.
