YOQNEAM, ISRAEL -- (Marketwire) -- 02/12/13 -- Given Imaging Ltd. (NASDAQ: GIVN) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2012.

Revenues were $48.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $48.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Gross margin on a GAAP-basis in the fourth quarter of 2012 was 74.6 percent, compared to 77.4 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011. Gross margin on a non-GAAP-basis in the fourth quarter of 2012 was 76.1 percent, compared to 77.9 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011.

On a GAAP-basis, operating profit was $3.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $4.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP operating profit was $7.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $7.1 million in the same period in 2011. The acquisition of SmartPill assets negatively impacted gross and operating profit. The effect on GAAP and non-GAAP operating profit was approximately $1.3 million and $0.3 million, respectively in the fourth quarter and full year 2012. The Company recorded SmartPill revenue of $0.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.

On a GAAP-basis, net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $5.1 million, or $0.16 per share, compared to $5.6 million, or $0.18 per share, in the same period in 2011. On a non-GAAP-basis, net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased three percent to $7.9 million, or $0.25 per share on a fully diluted basis, compared to $7.7 million, or $0.25 per share on a fully diluted basis, in the fourth quarter of 2011.

A reconciliation of GAAP results to non-GAAP results is attached.

Cash provided by operating activities in the fourth quarter and in fiscal year 2012 was $11.0 million and $27.8 million, respectively. Cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments and marketable securities on December 31, 2012 totaled $124.1 million.

"We are pleased to have delivered record net income, both on a GAAP and non-GAAP-basis in 2012. We achieved a solid six percent increase in revenues in the Americas region. Revenues in the rest of the world were impacted by the continuing economic weakness in Europe, delays caused by a change in our Japanese commercial strategy and a shortfall in revenues in China. We expect 2013 to be a pivotal year for Given Imaging and our goal is to return to double-digit revenue growth as we expand the market for our comprehensive line of devices to visualize, detect, and monitor disorders in the digestive tract and introduce new, innovative products, including our next-generation capsule endoscope for the small bowel, PillCam SB3. We plan to launch PillCam SB3 in Europe this quarter and in the U.S. later this year," said Homi Shamir, president and CEO, Given Imaging.

Fourth Quarter 2012 Revenue Analysis

Revenues in the Americas region in the fourth quarter of 2012 increased by one percent to $31.3 million from $30.9 million in the same period in 2011. The increase is attributable to a seven percent increase in sales of PillCam SB, which was partially offset by lower functional GI diagnostics product sales. Revenues in the EMEA region were $11.3 million compared to $11.4 million in the same period in 2011. APAC revenues were $6.1 million, compared to $6.3 million in the same period in 2011.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

This press release provides financial measures for net income and basic and diluted earnings per share that exclude certain items and are therefore not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance that enhances management's and investors' ability to evaluate the Company's net income and earnings per share and to compare it with historical net income and earnings per share.

The presentation of this non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. Management uses both GAAP and non-GAAP measures when evaluating the business internally and therefore felt it is important to make these non-GAAP adjustments available to investors.

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
