SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ResMed Inc. (NYSE: RMD) (ASX: RMD) today announced results for its quarter ended June 30, 2018. Revenue for the quarter was $623.6 million, a 12 percent increase compared to the same period of the prior year.

“We closed out the year with strong performance across all aspects of our business, from solid top-line revenue growth - driven by geographically balanced results across our entire portfolio of offerings - to continued improvements in operating leverage, which has resulted in double-digit bottom-line growth,” said Mick Farrell, ResMed’s chief executive officer.

“We continue to advance our cloud-connected medical device strategy and are growing our cloud-based software-as-a-service business. Our clinical studies and research efforts are being recognized and the opportunity to increase awareness of sleep-related breathing disorders and improve patient quality of life is bigger than ever.”

Farrell concluded, “We believe we are well-positioned as we enter fiscal year 2019. We continue to innovate, we are improving our existing portfolio of products and offerings, and we have a robust pipeline to drive future growth.”

Analysis of fourth quarter results

Fourth quarter revenue in U.S., Canada and Latin America, excluding Brightree, was $346.7 million, a 10 percent increase over the same period of the prior year. Brightree revenue for the fourth quarter was $40.4 million, an increase of 12 percent compared to the same period of the prior year. Revenue in combined Europe, Asia and other markets was $236.5 million, an increase of 9 percent on a constant currency basis, compared to the same period of the prior year.

Gross margin in the fourth quarter was 58.1 percent, lower than the prior year’s quarter gross margin of 58.2 percent mainly due to declines in average selling prices, which were partially offset by manufacturing and procurement efficiencies.

Income from operations for the quarter was $146.9 million, a 15 percent increase compared with the quarter ended June 30, 2017. Non-GAAP income from operations for the quarter was $166.0 million, a 19 percent increase compared to the same period of the prior year.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $156.8 million, a 6 percent increase over the same period in the prior year, or a 3 percent increase on a constant currency basis. SG&A expenses improved to 25.1 percent of revenue in the quarter, compared with 26.6 percent reported in the quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Research and development expenses were $39.7 million, or 6.4 percent of revenue. R&D expenses increased by 8 percent compared with the same period last year, or a 6 percent increase on a constant currency basis.

Amortization of acquired intangible assets was $11.6 million during the quarter, which is consistent with the same period last year. Stock-based compensation costs incurred during the quarter of $12.5 million consisted of expenses associated with employee equity grants and our employee stock purchase plan.

Net income for the quarter was $109.8 million, an 8 percent increase compared to the same period of the prior year. Non-GAAP net income was $136.3 million, a 24 percent increase compared to the prior year.

Non-GAAP measures adjust for amortization of acquired intangibles, impact of U.S. tax reform on income tax expense, restructuring expenses and impact of foreign tax credit adjustments on income tax expense.

GAAP diluted earnings per share for the quarter increased by 7 percent to $0.76. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.95 were 23 percent higher compared with the same period of the prior year.

Cash flow from operations for the quarter was $129.4 million compared to net income in the current quarter of $109.8 million. During the quarter we paid $50.0 million in dividends.

Impact of U.S. tax reform on income tax expense

On December 22, 2017 “H.R.1”, originally known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, was enacted into law (“U.S. tax reform”). ASC 740 Income Taxes requires companies to recognize the effect of any tax laws during the period in which they are enacted. Accordingly, during the quarter ended December 31, 2017, we performed preliminary calculations which have been refined during the remainder of the fiscal year. Based on these refinements, and additional guidance from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, we recognized additional income tax expense of $5.8 million during the three months ended June 30, 2018 for a total income tax expense of $138.0 million during the year ended June 30, 2018.

The U.S. tax reform significantly revises the U.S. corporate income tax by, among other things, imposing a one-time transition tax on unremitted foreign earnings, lowering the corporate income tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent and implementing a territorial tax system in relation to foreign earnings.

Analysis of fiscal year 2018 results

Revenue for the year increased 13 percent over the prior year to $2.3 billion, or a 10 percent increase on a constant currency basis.

Income from operations for the year was $541.8 million, a 27 percent increase over the prior year. Non-GAAP income from operations for the year was $606.6 million, a 19 percent increase over the prior year.

Non-GAAP measures adjust for amortization of acquired intangibles, impact of U.S. tax reform on income tax expense, restructuring expenses, impact of foreign tax credit adjustments on income tax expense, litigation settlement expenses, acquisition related expenses and the Astral battery field safety notification expenses.

Net income for the year was $315.6 million, an 8 percent decrease over the prior year. Non-GAAP net income was $507.8 million, a 27 percent increase compared to the prior year.

GAAP diluted earnings per share decreased 9 percent to $2.19. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share for the year was $3.53, a 25 percent increase compared with the prior year.

Cash flow from operations for the year was $505.0 million. During the year we paid $199.5 million in dividends and repaid a net amount of $796.2 million of our outstanding debt.

Debt refinancing

As reported during the previous quarter, on April 17, 2018, we entered into a new unsecured syndicated facility (“Facility”) that provides for an $800 million five-year revolving Credit Facility and a $200 million five-year Term Loan. The proceeds from the initial funding of the Term Loan were used to repay a portion of the outstanding balance of the Credit Facility.

Share repurchase program

During the quarter, we repurchased 250,000 shares at a cost of $25.9 million, as part of our ongoing capital management program.

Dividend program

The ResMed board of directors today declared quarterly cash dividend of $0.37 per share. The dividend will have a record date of August 16, 2018, payable on September 20, 2018. The dividend will be paid in U.S. currency to holders of ResMed’s common stock trading on the New York Stock Exchange. Holders of Chess Depositary Instruments trading on the Australian Securities Exchange will receive an equivalent amount in Australian currency, based on the exchange rate on the record date, and reflecting the 10:1 ratio between CDIs and NYSE shares. The ex-dividend date will be August 15, 2018 for common stock holders and for CDI holders. ResMed has received a waiver from the ASX's settlement operating rules, which will allow ResMed to defer processing conversions between its common stock and CDI registers from August 15, 2018 through August 16, 2018, inclusive.

(A)   ResMed adjusts for the impact of the amortization of acquired intangibles, impact of U.S. tax reform on income tax expense, restructuring expenses, impact of foreign tax credit adjustments on income tax expense, litigation settlement expenses, acquisition related expenses and the 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.
