Revenue increased 13% to $523.7 million; up 11% on a constant currency basis
GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.60; non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.66

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ResMed Inc. (NYSE: RMD, ASX: RMD) today announced results for its quarter ended September 30, 2017. Revenue for the quarter was $523.7 million, a 13 percent increase compared to the same period of the prior year.

"We started the fiscal year with strong 11 percent constant currency revenue growth led by our masks, software-as-a-service solutions, and devices," said Mick Farrell, ResMed's chief executive officer.  "Our new masks have performed well around the world, device sales are solid, and operating profit returned to double-digit growth in the quarter." 

Farrell concluded, "We are achieving share gains with new product innovation and delivering sustainable operating profit growth. We continue to pioneer products, services and solutions that improve patient outcomes, create efficiencies for our homecare providers, and help physicians and payers better manage chronic disease and lower long-term healthcare costs."

Analysis of first quarter results

First quarter revenue in the Americas, excluding Brightree, was $296.6 million, an 11 percent increase over the same period of the prior year. Brightree revenue for the first quarter was $38.1 million, an increase of 15 percent compared to the same period of the prior year. Revenue in combined EMEA and APAC was $189.0 million, an increase of 11 percent on a constant currency basis, compared to the same period of the prior year.

Gross margin in the first quarter was 58.4 percent, higher than the prior year's quarter gross margin of 57.8 percent. The improvement in gross margin compared to prior year was due to manufacturing and procurement efficiencies and the prior year Astral field safety notification expenses, which were partially offset by declines in average selling prices.

Income from operations for the quarter was $112.6 million, a 20 percent increase compared with the quarter ended September 30, 2016. Non-GAAP income from operations for the quarter was $124.3 million, a 12 percent increase compared to the same period of the prior year. 

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $143.9 million, a 12 percent increase over the same period in the prior year, or a 10 percent increase on a constant currency basis. SG&A expenses improved to 27.5 percent of revenue in the quarter, compared with 27.7 percent reported in the quarter ended September 30, 2016.  

Research and development expenses were $37.4 million, or 7.1 percent of revenue. R&D expenses increased by 9 percent compared with the same period last year, or a 6 percent increase on a constant currency basis.

Amortization of acquired intangible assets was $11.8 million during the quarter, which is consistent with the same period last year. Stock-based compensation costs incurred during the quarter of $11.9 million consisted of expenses associated with employee equity grants, and our employee stock purchase plan. 

Net income for the quarter was $86.1 million, a 13 percent increase compared to the same period of the prior year. Non-GAAP net income was $94.1 million, a 7 percent increase compared to the prior year.

Non-GAAP measures adjust for amortization of acquired intangibles and the Astral battery field safety notification expenses.

GAAP diluted earnings per share for the quarter increased by 11 percent to $0.60.  Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.66 were 6 percent higher compared with the same period of the prior year. 

Cash flow from operations for the quarter was $94.0 million compared to net income in the current quarter of $86.1 million. During the quarter we paid $49.7 million in dividends and repaid $60.0 million of our outstanding debt.

Dividend program

The ResMed board of directors today declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.35 per share. The dividend will have a record date of November 9, 2017, payable on December 14, 2017.

(A)     

ResMed adjusts for the impact of the amortization of acquired intangible assets and Astral battery field safety notification expenses from their evaluation of ongoing operations and believes investors benefit from adjusting these items to facilitate a more meaningful evaluation of current operating performance.




ResMed believes that non-GAAP diluted earnings per share is an additional measure of performance investors can use to compare operating results between reporting periods. ResMed uses non-GAAP information internally in planning, forecasting, and evaluating the results of operations in the current period and in comparing it to past periods. ResMed believes this information provides investors better insight in evaluating ResMed's performance from core operations and provides consistent financial reporting. Our use of non-GAAP measures is intended to supplement, and not to replace, our presentation of net income and other GAAP measures. Like all non-GAAP measures, non-GAAP earnings are subject to inherent limitations because they do not include all the expenses that must be included under GAAP.
