LONG ISLAND CITY, N.Y.--()--Sirona (Nasdaq:SIRO), the dental technology leader, today announced its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2015.

Second Quarter Fiscal 2015 vs. Second Quarter Fiscal 2014 Financial Results

Revenue was $257.3 million, a decrease of $25.4 million or down 9.0% in U.S. dollars and up 2.0% on a local currency basis. The Company's business segments performed as follows: CAD/CAM Systems decreased 6.6% (up 2.9% on a local currency basis), Imaging Systems decreased 8.2% (down 0.7% on a local currency basis), Instruments decreased 10.8% (up 6.1% on a local currency basis), and Treatment Centers decreased 13.8% (up 2.2% on a local currency basis).

Revenue growth was led by the United States which increased 8.6% on strong demand for our Imaging products and continued growth in CAD/CAM new user sales.

International revenues decreased 15.3% in U.S. dollars, but in local currency decreased 0.4%. The decline was primarily driven by Japan, which faced a difficult comparable with last year’s pre-buying ahead of the consumption tax increase.

Gross profit was $143.8 million, down $7.7 million. Gross profit margin was 55.9% in the second quarter of Fiscal 2015, compared to 53.6% in the prior year. The increase in the gross profit margin was mainly due to the benefit of foreign exchange effects as well as reduced amortization and depreciation expense resulting from the step-up to fair values of tangible and intangible assets.

Net income attributable to Sirona Dental Systems, Inc. for the second quarter of 2015 was $36.0 million, or $0.64 per diluted share, versus $37.3 million, or $0.66 per diluted share in the prior year period. Non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share for the second quarter of 2015 was $0.76 compared to $0.80 in the prior year quarter, or a decrease of 5.4%. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP measure to earnings per share calculated on a GAAP basis is provided in the attached table.

At March 31, 2015, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $400.3 million and total debt of $78.6 million, resulting in net cash of $321.7 million. This compares to net cash of $288.6 million at December 31, 2014 and $175.7 million a year ago.

Jeffrey T. Slovin, President and CEO of Sirona commented: “During the second quarter, 2.0% local currency growth was driven by a combination of factors, led by solid 8.6% growth in the U.S. Instruments and Treatment Centers continued their positive momentum. CAD/CAM returned to growth driven by strong new user demand. Imaging sales slightly declined with dealers awaiting the launch of our new Orthophos SL platform. Overall, our year to date performance is in line with our expectations.”

Mr. Slovin continued: “The International Dental Show in March was a tremendous success as we introduced a record number of new products and received a significant number of new orders. The positive reaction to our new products and the market’s clear evolution towards digital dentistry affirmed our outlook for a very strong back half of the fiscal year, reflecting broad based growth across our portfolio.”

Fiscal 2015 Guidance

Management reiterates guidance of FY15 local currency revenue growth of 6% to 8% and non-GAAP adjusted EPS* in the range of $3.95 to $4.05 (reflecting growth of approximately 8% to 10%).

To supplement our consolidated financial statements and our business outlook, we use the following non-GAAP financial measures: (i) non-GAAP adjusted net income, and (ii) non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share, which exclude, as applicable, amortization and depreciation expense resulting from the step-up to fair values of intangible and tangible assets related to past business combinations, gain/loss on foreign currency transactions, gain/loss on derivative instruments, any related tax effects, and to the extent relevant in a particular period, any other cash or non-cash items that management does not view as indicative of its ongoing operating performance. Also set forth above under the heading “FORWARD-LOOKING” are reconciliations of forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Management recognizes that the use of these non-GAAP measures has limitations, including the fact that they might not be comparable with similar non-GAAP measures used by other companies and that management must exercise judgment in determining which types of charges and other items should be excluded from its non-GAAP financial measures. Management currently compensates for these limitations by providing full disclosure of each non-GAAP financial measure and a reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP measure. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

We use these non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. Our management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding Sirona’s operating performance in the ordinary, ongoing and customary course of its operations. Accordingly, management excludes the impact of acquisition-related intangible depreciation and amortization in order to compare our underlying financial performance to prior periods, certain charges and income related to currency revaluation of assets and liabilities that do not reflect our period-to-period core operating performance, and to the extent relevant in a particular period, any other cash or non-cash items that management does not view as indicative of its ongoing operating performance. We believe that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our performance and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal evaluation of period-to-period comparisons. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors both because (1) they allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision making and (2) they are provided to and used by our institutional investors and the analyst community to facilitate comparisons with prior and subsequent reporting periods.

Local Currency: Certain revenue information is presented on a local currency basis (“Local Currency”). This information is a non-GAAP financial measure. Sirona supplementally presents this revenue information because it believes doing so facilitates a comparison of its operating results from period to period without regard to changes resulting solely from fluctuations in currency rates.

Sirona calculates Local Currency revenue growth by comparing current-period local revenues to prior-period local revenues with both periods converted at the U.S. Dollar/local currency average foreign exchange rate for each month of the prior period.

Our forecasted 2015 constant currency net revenue growth guidance excludes the impact of U.S Dollar/Euro exchange rate fluctuations due to the unpredictability of future changes in foreign exchange rates. Therefore, we do not provide a reconciliation of these measures.
