– Revenue of $1.436 Billion, GAAP Diluted EPS of $1.80, and Non-GAAP Diluted EPS of $2.07 All Significantly Ahead of Expectations –
– Company Again Increases Full-Year Revenue and EPS Guidance –
MARLBOROUGH, Mass., April 27, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hologic, Inc. (Nasdaq: HOLX) announced today the Company’s financial results for the fiscal second quarter ended March 26, 2022.
"In our second quarter of fiscal 2022, Hologic posted strong financial results that significantly exceeded our guidance on both the top and bottom lines," said Steve MacMillan, the Company’s chairman, president and chief executive officer. "We continued to generate robust profitability and cash flows in the quarter and our balance sheet is stronger than ever. In this challenging macro environment, the health and diversity of our base businesses, plus our diagnostic testing for COVID-19, give us incredible confidence and excitement that we are building a stronger company for the long-term."
Revenue of $1.436 billion decreased (6.6%) for the quarter, or (5.2%) in constant currency, primarily driven by lower sales of COVID-19 assays compared to the prior year period. Revenue, however, was significantly higher than the Company’s guidance of $1.25 to $1.3 billion provided last quarter.
Excluding revenue from COVID-19, organic revenue declined (1.6%) on a constant currency basis primarily due to the previously discussed impact of semiconductor chip shortages in the Breast Health division and the negative impact of the COVID-19 Omicron variant on healthcare utilization early in the quarter.
Global diagnostics revenue decreased (7.3%), or (5.6%) in constant currency, primarily driven by lower sales of COVID-19 assays compared to the prior year period and reduced healthcare utilization resulting from the COVID-19 Omicron variant. Excluding COVID-19 revenues, global diagnostics revenue grew 4.0% on an organic, constant currency basis. Similarly, global molecular diagnostics revenue declined (7.8%), or (6.1%) in constant currency, yet grew 6.9% on an organic, constant currency basis excluding COVID-19 revenues.
Global revenue for the Company’s Breast Health division declined (7.7%), or (6.8%) in constant currency, as expected, primarily due to semiconductor chip shortages.
Global revenue for the Company’s GYN Surgical division grew 2.7%, or 3.5% in constant currency, less than forecasted, as the COVID-19 Omicron variant reduced procedure volumes in the first two months of the period.
Cash flow from operations was exceptionally strong in the second quarter at $1,062.2 million, including tax refunds of $418 million. The Company repurchased 2.9 million shares of its stock for $200 million in the period.
Launched national advertising campaign, which ran during the Super Bowl and Winter Olympics, and highlighted the need for women to make their health a priority.
Partnered with the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) as the global title sponsor of the WTA Tour. The multi-year alliance aims to achieve significant progress through a shared vision of greater wellness and equality for women.
Bolder Surgical, a recently acquired business providing advanced energy vessel sealing surgical devices, was recognized on Fast Company’s annual list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies.
Biotheranostics’ Breast Cancer Index, a proprietary molecular test to help guide extended endocrine therapy decisions, now included in American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Clinical Practice Guideline.
Key financial results for the fiscal second quarter are shown in the table below.
Throughout this press release, all dollar figures are in millions, except EPS, unless otherwise noted. Some totals may not foot due to rounding.

Other Financial Highlights
U.S. revenue of $992.4 million decreased (6.7%). International revenue of $443.3 million decreased (6.4%), or (1.8%) in constant currency. Organically, U.S. revenue of $963.2 million decreased (8.0%), while international revenue of $430.6 million decreased (8.6%), or (3.9%) in constant currency.
GAAP gross margin of 65.9% decreased (470) basis points. Non-GAAP gross margin of 71.0% decreased (400) basis points. The decrease in gross margin was primarily due to a decline in COVID-19 assay sales compared to the prior year period.
GAAP operating margin of 41.4% decreased (1,040) basis points. Non-GAAP operating margin of 47.4% decreased (950) basis points. The decrease in operating margin was primarily due to a decline in COVID-19 assay sales compared to the prior year period.
GAAP net income attributable to Hologic of $455.7 million decreased (26.5%). Non-GAAP net income attributable to Hologic of $524.2 million decreased (22.2%). Adjusted non-GAAP earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) was $703.6 million, a decrease of (21.5%).
COVID-19 revenues, which consist of COVID-19 assay revenue of $584.1 million and other COVID-19 related revenue and revenue from discontinued products of $73.5 million, decreased (13.8%), or (11.9%) in constant currency.
Total principal debt outstanding at the end of the second quarter was $3.1 billion. The Company ended the quarter with cash and equivalents of $2.3 billion, and a net leverage ratio (net debt over adjusted EBITDA) of 0.3.
On a trailing 12 months basis, adjusted Return on Invested Capital (ROIC) of 27.4% decreased (600) basis points compared to the prior year period.
Financial Guidance for the Third Quarter and Full-Year Fiscal 2022
"We are again raising our full-year revenue and EPS guidance," said Karleen Oberton, Hologic’s chief financial officer. "Further, our pristine balance sheet provides us tremendous strength in these still uncertain times."
Hologic’s financial guidance for the third quarter and full year 2022 is shown in the table below. The guidance is based on a full year non-GAAP tax rate of approximately 21.0%, and diluted shares outstanding of 255 million for the full year. Constant currency guidance assumes that foreign exchange rates are the same in fiscal 2022 as in fiscal 2021. Organic revenue guidance is in constant currency and excludes the divested Blood Screening business. Revenue from acquired businesses is generally included in organic revenue guidance starting a year after the acquisition. Therefore, in fiscal 2022, Biotheranostics and Diagenode will become part of organic revenue in the fiscal third quarter, Mobidiag will become part of organic revenue in the fiscal fourth quarter, and Bolder is excluded from organic revenue for the full year.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The Company has presented the following non-GAAP financial measures in this press release: constant currency revenues; organic revenues; organic revenues excluding COVID related revenues, non-GAAP gross margin; non-GAAP operating expenses; non-GAAP operating margin; non-GAAP effective tax rate; non-GAAP net income; non-GAAP net margin; non-GAAP EPS; and adjusted EBITDA. Organic revenue excludes the divested Blood Screening business, as well as the acquired Biotheranostics, Diagenode, Mobidiag, and Bolder businesses. Revenue from acquired businesses is generally included in organic revenue starting a year after the acquisition. Organic revenue excluding COVID-19 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, EPS, and other non-GAAP financial measures to exclude, as applicable: (i) the amortization of intangible assets and impairment of goodwill, intangible assets and equipment; (ii) adjustments to record contingent consideration at fair value; (iii) additional expenses resulting from the purchase accounting adjustment to record inventory at fair value; (iv) restructuring and divestiture charges and facility closure and consolidation charges, including accelerated depreciation, 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 the 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 foreign currency 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 impacts related to internal restructurings 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. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as its non-GAAP net income plus net interest expense, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization expense included in its non-GAAP net income.
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 these 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 these non-GAAP financial measures to facilitate management's financial and operational decision-making, including evaluation of Hologic's historical operating results, comparison to competitors' operating results and determination of management incentive compensation. These 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, 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 will increase or decrease the Company's reported results of operations, management strongly encourages investors to review the Company's consolidated financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is included in the tables accompanying this release.
