Hologic Announces Preliminary Revenue Results for First Quarter of Fiscal 2022

– Revenue of $1,471.1 Million Significantly Exceeds Guidance –

– Organic Revenue Grows 9% Excluding COVID-19 Benefits –

– More than 8% Global Organic Growth in All Businesses: Breast, Surgical, Skeletal and Diagnostics ex-COVID –

MARLBOROUGH, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#HOLX–Hologic, Inc. (Nasdaq: HOLX) announced today preliminary revenue results for its first fiscal quarter ended December 25, 2021.

The Company expects to report total revenues of approximately $1,471.1 million, a decrease of (8.6%) compared to the prior year period, or (8.2%) in constant currency. These preliminary results compare to the Company’s most recent guidance range of $1,100 to $1,150 million, which was provided on November 1, 2021.

“We expect to report a very strong start to fiscal 2022 across-the-board, with first quarter revenue well above our guidance,” said Steve MacMillan, the Company’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our Diagnostics division had another quarter of exceptional performance, as we over-delivered in our base business while meeting heavy demand for COVID testing. Further, our Breast and Skeletal Health and Surgical businesses showed strength, with each growing over 8%. In total, we estimate organic growth excluding COVID benefits of 9.0% in constant currency for our first quarter, compared to our 5% to 7% long-term growth target.”

Hologic has not yet completed its financial close processes for the first quarter of fiscal 2022, so GAAP financial results for the quarter have not yet been finalized. However, the Company expects non-GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS) to be significantly higher than the guidance of $1.15 to $1.25 provided on November 1, 2021.

Hologic intends to provide its full financial results for the first quarter on February 2, 2022. Until that time, the preliminary revenue results described in this press release are estimates only and are subject to revisions that could differ materially. When the Company reports its first quarter results, it also expects to provide updated financial guidance for the second quarter and fiscal 2022, following the completion of its quarterly forecasting process.

J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference

Hologic is providing these updates in advance of its participation in the 40th Annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference, which begins tomorrow. The Company will post its conference presentation to the investors section of its website at investors.hologic.com. A live webcast of the Company’s presentation and question and answer session, which begins at 1:30 p.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday, January 11, 2022, also may be accessed there. The webcast will be available for 30 days.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company has presented certain non-GAAP financial measures in this press release: constant currency revenue, organic revenue and non-GAAP EPS. Constant currency calculations show reported current period revenues as if the foreign exchange rates remain the same as those in effect in the comparable prior year period. Organic revenue excludes the divested Blood Screening business, and the acquired Biotheranostics, Diagenode, Mobidiag and Bolder Surgical businesses. Organic revenue excluding COVID is organic revenue less COVID assay revenue, COVID-related sales of instruments, collection kits and ancillaries, as well as license revenue, and discontinued products. The Company defines its non-GAAP net income and EPS to exclude, as applicable: (i) the amortization of intangible assets and impairment of goodwill, intangible assets and equipment; (ii) additional depreciation expense from acquired fixed assets and accelerated depreciation related to consolidation and closure of facilities; (iii) additional expenses resulting from the purchase accounting adjustment to record inventory at fair value and adjustments to contingent consideration; (iv) restructuring and divestiture charges and facility closure and consolidation charges and costs incurred to integrate acquisitions (including retention, transaction bonuses, legal and professional consulting services) and separate divested businesses from existing operations; (v) expenses related to its divested Cynosure business incurred subsequent to the disposition date primarily related to indemnification provisions for legal and tax matters; (vi) transaction related expenses for divestitures and acquisitions; (vii) third-party expenses incurred related to implementing the European MDR/IVDR requirements and obtaining the appropriate approvals for its existing products; (viii) debt extinguishment losses and related transaction costs; (ix) the unrealized (gains) losses on the mark-to-market of forward foreign currency contracts and foreign currency option contracts for which the Company has not elected hedge accounting; (x) litigation settlement charges (benefits) and non-income tax related charges (benefits); (xi) other-than-temporary impairment losses on investments and realized gains and losses resulting from the sale of investments; (xii) the one-time discrete impact of tax reform and other one-time impacts related to internal restructuring and non-operational items; (xiii) other one-time, non-recurring, unusual or infrequent charges, expenses or gains that may not be indicative of the Company’s core business results; and (xiv) income taxes related to such adjustments.

Because the quarterly financial information contained in this press release is preliminary, it is deemed to be forward-looking. The Company has not provided a reconciliation of preliminary organic revenue and preliminary organic revenue excluding COVID to preliminary or projected GAAP revenue because of the unreasonable efforts it would take to provide such reconciliations at this time. The Company is also unable to provide GAAP EPS in this press release because certain significant items have not yet been finalized. Such items depend on various factors and could have a material impact on reported GAAP EPS. GAAP results and a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure will be presented in connection with the Company’s press release reporting full financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2022 scheduled to be released after the close of the market on February 2, 2022. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered supplemental to, and not a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company’s definition of non-GAAP measures may differ from similarly titled measures used by others.

The non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release adjust for specified items that can be highly variable or difficult to predict. The Company generally uses non-GAAP financial measures to facilitate management’s financial and operational decision-making, including evaluation of Hologic’s historical operating results and comparison to competitors’ operating results. Non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of the Company’s operations that, when viewed with GAAP results and the reconciliations to corresponding GAAP financial measures (when they become available), may provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting Hologic’s business. Because non-GAAP financial measures exclude the effect of items that increase or decrease the company’s reported results of operations, management strongly encourages investors to review, when they become available, the Company’s consolidated financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety.
