SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Accuray Incorporated (NASDAQ: ARAY) announced today preliminary revenue and product orders for the fourth quarter and full fiscal year ended June 30, 2017, that are in line with guidance provided in April. The company anticipates reporting its full financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2017 on August 22, 2017. The preliminary results reported have not been audited and are subject to change.
The company announced the following preliminary results for the fourth quarter and full fiscal year:
- Revenue for the fourth quarter is expected to be approximately $111.5-$112.0 million. For the full fiscal year, revenue is expected to be approximately $382.8-$383.3 million
- Gross product orders for the fourth quarter are expected to be approximately $86 million; full fiscal year gross product orders are expected to be approximately $298 million
- Ending backlog as of June 30th is expected to be approximately $453 million, an increase of 12 percent over prior fiscal year
- Age-outs and cancellations during the fourth quarter are expected to be approximately $19 million and $4 million, respectively
- Cash, cash equivalents, investments and restricted cash are expected to be approximately $108 million as of June 30, 2017, an increase of $11.4 million from March 31, 2017, primarily due to working capital improvements offset by total debt reduction of $10 million
"Our fourth quarter revenue growth was driven by improved performance in both our Europe and Asia Pacific regions and we finished the fiscal year with renewed momentum resulting from our increased focus on converting backlog to revenue," said Joshua H. Levine, president and chief executive officer of Accuray. "We also had double digit gross order growth in the second half of the fiscal year, driven by the full commercial launch of our Radixact system and continued strong demand for our CyberKnife system. During the fourth quarter, we continued to improve the company's balance sheet with a new $52 million revolving loan agreement that reduces our annual interest costs by $2 million versus our prior secured term loan and we reduced our total debt by $10 million. As we look forward to fiscal year 2018, we strongly believe we have the people, processes and product roadmap in place for continued growth in orders, revenues and market share."
