WESTBROOK, Maine, May 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- IDEXX Laboratories, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDXX), a global leader in veterinary diagnostics, veterinary practice software and water microbiology testing, today announced first quarter results, as well as an update on U.S. companion animal diagnostics trends.

First Quarter Results

The Company reports revenues of $837 million for the first quarter of 2022, an 8% increase as reported and organically, driven by Companion Animal Group ("CAG") Diagnostics recurring revenue growth of 8% reported and 9% organic compared to high prior year gains. Continued strong companion animal sector demand and benefits from IDEXX innovation and customer engagement drove record first quarter instrument placements and continued strong momentum in cloud-based software placements. CAG Diagnostics capital instrument revenues grew 19% as reported and 22% organically, and veterinary software, services and diagnostic imaging systems revenue increased 34% as reported and 13% organically. Overall revenue gains in the quarter were also supported by solid Water revenue growth of 7% reported and 8% organic.

First quarter earnings per diluted share ("EPS") were $2.27, a 3% decline as reported and a 3% increase on a comparable basis versus strong prior year profit levels. EPS results included $0.06 per share in tax benefits from share-based compensation, a reduction compared to high prior year benefit levels, and a $0.03 per share negative impact from currency changes.

"IDEXX's first quarter results build on the significant gains in demand for companion animal diagnostics and software solutions achieved over the last two years," said Jay Mazelsky, the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Veterinarians and their staffs continue to work passionately to support their practices in a demanding environment. IDEXX solutions help to improve patient care and manage increased demands on their time, as well as to continue to advance higher standards for pet healthcare, including utilization of diagnostics. This is reflected in continued strong IDEXX premium instrument placements globally, expansion of our cloud-based software solutions and high single-digit organic growth in CAG Diagnostics recurring revenues compared to very strong prior year growth levels. These results demonstrate the benefits of our ongoing focus on innovation, the continued high level of customer-focused execution of IDEXX teams globally and our commitment as a purpose-driven company to improving the health and well-being of pets, people and livestock."

Companion Animal Diagnostics Trends Update

Continued growth in demand for companion animal healthcare supported solid gains for CAG diagnostic products and services across regions, compared to very strong prior year growth levels. U.S. same-store clinical visits at veterinary practices declined 2% in the first quarter compared to prior year period clinical visit growth of 13%, which included benefits from increases in new pet ownership during the COVID-19 pandemic. Average same-store revenue growth at U.S. veterinary practices was 6% in the first quarter (compared to 16% growth levels in the first quarter of 2021), driven by high growth in healthcare services, including increased utilization of diagnostics. Demand for pet healthcare including diagnostics has increased significantly from pre-pandemic levels, reflected in 4% compound annual clinic visit growth and 11% compound annual growth in U.S. same-store diagnostics revenues compared to 2019 first quarter, pre-pandemic levels.

Additional U.S. companion animal practice key metrics are available in the Q1 2022 Earnings Snapshot accessible on the IDEXX website, www.idexx.com/investors.

First Quarter Performance Highlights

Companion Animal Group

The Companion Animal Group generated revenue growth of 10% reported and organic for the quarter, supported by CAG Diagnostics recurring revenue growth of 8% on a reported basis and 9% organically. Solid growth was achieved across IDEXX's major modalities, building off high gains in the prior year period. Overall CAG revenue growth included CAG Diagnostics capital instrument revenue growth of 19% reported and 22% organic, reflecting record first quarter premium instrument placements.

  • IDEXX VetLab® consumables generated 9% reported and 11% organic revenue growth, supported by expansion of our global premium instrument installed base and benefits from net price gains and high customer retention levels.

  • Reference laboratory diagnostic and consulting services generated 7% reported and 8% organic revenue growth supported by strong growth in the U.S., offset by moderated growth in international regions compared to strong prior year levels. Revenue gains reflect benefits from same-store volume growth, new business gains and net price improvement.

  • Rapid assay products revenues grew 7% as reported and 8% organic, supported by net price gains, continued solid volume growth in the U.S. and high customer retention levels.

Veterinary software, services and diagnostic imaging systems revenues grew 34% reported and 13% on an organic basis, with strong growth in recurring software services revenue supported by continued gains in cloud-based software placements. Reported growth includes benefits from the recent acquisition of ezyVet®, which continues to show strong momentum in terms of customer gains.

Water

Water revenues grew 7% on a reported basis and 8% on an organic basis for the quarter, supported by a continued solid recovery in water testing demand and net price gains.

Livestock, Poultry and Dairy ("LPD")

LPD revenues declined 21% as reported and 19% on an organic basis for the quarter, compared to prior year growth of 15% as reported and 9% organic, which benefited from African Swine Fever (ASF) testing programs and core Swine testing volumes in China. Comparisons in these areas are expected to improve in the second half of 2022.

Gross Profit and Operating Profit

Gross profits increased 6% as reported and 7% on a comparable basis. Gross margin of 59.6% decreased 90 basis points as reported and 120 basis points on a comparable basis. Gross margin declines reflect comparisons to high prior year levels, business mix effects from lower LPD revenues and high CAG Diagnostics capital instrument revenue growth, and higher freight and distribution costs. Net price gains and CAG reference laboratory productivity initiatives helped to offset inflationary effects.

Operating margin was 29.7% in the quarter, 220 basis points lower than the prior year as reported and on a comparable basis. High prior year period operating margin levels included benefits from constrained operating expense levels during the pandemic. Operating expenses increased 12% as reported and 13% on a comparable basis, reflecting comparisons to constrained prior year levels, increased investments supporting global commercial capabilities, and higher travel costs.

2022 Growth and Financial Performance Outlook

The Company is recalibrating its full year revenue growth outlook to reflect first quarter results and anticipated near-term impacts on veterinary clinical visits from factors including constraints on vet clinic capacity, as well as ~$10 million in projected revenue reductions related to the war in Ukraine and ~$40 million in impact from the recent strengthening of the U.S. dollar. These factors are reflected in a 3.5% reduction in the projected full year reported revenue growth and a 2% - 2.5% reduction in the projected full year organic revenue growth range.

The Company now projects full year operating margins of 26.8% - 27.3%. The updated operating margin estimates include a negative 230 basis point impact related to ~$80 million of discrete research and development expense associated with the in-license of intellectual property during the second quarter.

The Company's EPS outlook of $8.11 - $8.35 reflects an adjustment of $1.20 at midpoint, including $0.72 of impact from the ~$80 million discrete R&D expense, $0.10 of additional impact from the strengthened U.S. dollar and $0.05 related to higher projected interest rates.

Additionally, the discrete R&D investments reduced estimated full year operating cash flow and free cash flow as a percentage of net income by ~3% and ~5%, respectively.

The Company specifically disclaims any obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Statement Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The following defines terms and conventions and provides reconciliations regarding certain measures used in this earnings release and/or the accompanying earnings conference call that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("GAAP"), otherwise referred to as non-GAAP financial measures. To supplement the Company's consolidated results presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company has disclosed non-GAAP financial measures that exclude or adjust certain items. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information for its and investors' evaluation of the Company's business performance and liquidity and are useful for period-over-period comparisons of the performance of the Company's business and its liquidity and to the performance and liquidity of our peers. While management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful in evaluating the Company's business, this information should be considered as supplemental in nature and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the related financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be the same as similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Constant currency - Constant currency references are non-GAAP financial measures which exclude the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates and are consistent with how management evaluates our performance and comparisons with prior and future periods. We estimated the net impacts of currency on our revenue, gross profit, operating profit, and EPS results by restating results to the average exchange rates or exchange rate assumptions for the comparative period, which includes adjusting for the estimated impacts of foreign currency hedging transactions and certain impacts on our effective tax rates. These estimated currency changes impacted first quarter 2022 results as follows: decreased gross profit growth by 2%, increased gross margin growth by 20 basis points, decreased operating expense growth by 1.3%, decreased operating profit growth by 1.6%, had an immaterial impact on operating profit margin growth, and decreased EPS growth by 1.3%. Constant currency revenue growth represents the percentage change in revenue during the applicable period, as compared to the prior year period, excluding the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates. See the supplementary analysis of results below for revenue percentage change from currency for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and refer to the 2022 Growth and Financial Performance Outlook section of this earnings release for estimated foreign currency exchange rate impacts on 2022 projections and estimates.

Growth and organic revenue growth - All references to growth and organic growth refer to growth compared to the equivalent prior year period unless specifically noted. Organic revenue growth is a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates, certain business acquisitions, and divestitures. Management believes that reporting organic revenue growth provides useful information to investors by facilitating easier comparisons of our revenue performance with prior and future periods and to the performance of our peers. Organic revenue growth should be considered in addition to, and not as a replacement of or a superior measure to, revenue growth reported in accordance with GAAP. See the supplementary analysis of results below for a reconciliation of reported revenue growth to organic revenue growth for the three months ended March 31, 2022. Please refer to the 2022 Growth and Financial Performance Outlook section of this earnings release for estimated full year 2022 organic revenue growth for the Company and CAG Diagnostics recurring revenue. The percentage change in revenue resulting from acquisitions represents revenues during the current year period, limited to the initial 12 months from the date of the acquisition, that are directly attributable to business acquisitions. Revenue from acquisitions is expected to increase projected full year 2022 revenue growth by 50 basis points. For a reconciliation of first quarter 2021 LPD organic revenue growth to LPD revenue growth reported in accordance with GAAP, see the supplementary analysis of results in the Company's earnings release dated May 4, 2021.

Comparable growth metrics - Comparable gross profit growth, comparable gross margin gain (or growth), comparable operating expense growth, comparable operating profit growth and comparable operating margin gain (or growth) are non-GAAP financial measures and exclude the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates and non-recurring or unusual items (if any). Please refer to the constant currency note above for a summary of foreign currency exchange rate impacts. Management believes that reporting comparable gross profit growth, comparable gross margin gain (or growth), comparable operating expense growth, comparable operating profit growth and comparable operating margin gain (or growth) provides useful information to investors because it enables better period-over-period comparisons of the fundamental financial results by excluding items that vary independent of performance and provides greater transparency to investors regarding key metrics used by management. Comparable gross profit growth, comparable gross margin gain (or growth), comparable operating expense growth, comparable operating profit growth and comparable operating margin gain (or growth) should be considered in addition to, and not as replacements of or superior measures to, gross profit growth, gross margin gain, operating expense growth, operating profit growth and operating margin gain reported in accordance with GAAP. Comparable operating expense growth, comparable operating profit growth, and comparable operating margin gain (or growth) exclude the impacts described in the constant currency note above and reconcile reported operating expense growth, operating profit growth, and operating margin gain for the first quarter of 2022 to comparable operating expense growth, comparable operating profit growth, and comparable operating margin gain (or growth) for the same period.

The reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures is as follows:

Projected 2022 comparable operating margin expansion outlined in the 2022 Growth and Financial Performance Outlook section of this earnings release reflects projected full year 2022 reported operating margin adjusted for estimated positive year-over-year foreign currency exchange rate change impact of approximately 10 basis points.

This impact and those described in the constant currency note above reconcile reported gross profit growth, gross margin gain, operating expense growth, operating profit growth and operating margin gain (including projected 2022 operating margin expansion) to comparable gross profit growth, comparable gross margin gain, comparable operating expense growth, comparable operating profit growth and comparable operating margin gain for the Company.

Comparable EPS growth - Comparable EPS growth is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents the percentage change in earnings per share (diluted) ("EPS") for a measurement period, as compared to the prior base period, net of the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates from the prior base period and excluding the tax benefits of share-based compensation activity under ASU 2016-09, Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, and non-recurring or unusual items (if any). Management believes comparable EPS growth is a more useful way to measure the Company's business performance than EPS growth because it enables better period-over-period comparisons of the fundamental financial results by excluding items that vary independent of performance and provides greater transparency to investors regarding a key metric used by management. Comparable EPS growth should be considered in addition to, and not as a replacement of or a superior measure to, EPS growth reported in accordance with GAAP. Please refer to the constant currency note above for a summary of foreign currency exchange rate impacts.

Projected 2022 comparable EPS growth outlined in the 2022 Growth and Financial Performance Outlook section of this earnings release reflects adjustments including estimated positive share-based compensation activity of $0.12 and estimated negative year-over-year foreign currency exchange rate change impact of $0.18.

These impacts and those described in the constant currency note above reconcile reported EPS growth (including projected 2022 reported EPS growth) to comparable EPS growth for the Company.

Free cash flow - Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure and means, with respect to a measurement period, the cash generated from operations during that period, reduced by the Company's investments in property and equipment. Management believes free cash flow is a useful measure because it indicates the cash the operations of the business are generating after appropriate reinvestment for recurring investments in property and equipment that are required to operate the business. Free cash flow should be considered in addition to, and not as a replacement of or a superior measure to, net cash provided by operating activities. See the supplementary analysis of results below for our calculation of free cash flow for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021. To estimate projected 2022 free cash flow, we have deducted projected purchases of property and equipment (also referred to as capital expenditures) of approximately $180 million. To calculate trailing twelve-month net income to free cash flow ratio for the twelve months ended March 31, 2022, we have deducted purchases of property and equipment of approximately $131 million from net cash provided from operating activities of approximately $746 million, divided by net income of approximately $735 million.

Debt to Adjusted EBITDA (Leverage Ratios) - Adjusted EBITDA, gross debt, and net debt are non-GAAP financial measures. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure of earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, non-recurring transaction expenses incurred in connection with acquisitions, share-based compensation expense, and certain other non-cash losses and charges. Management believes that reporting Adjusted EBITDA, gross debt and net debt in the Debt to Adjusted EBITDA ratios provides supplemental analysis to help investors further evaluate the Company's business performance and available borrowing capacity under the Company's credit facility. Adjusted EBITDA, gross debt, and net debt should be considered in addition to, and not as replacements of or superior measures to, net income or total debt reported in accordance with GAAP. For further information on how Adjusted EBITDA and the Debt to Adjusted EBITDA Ratios are calculated, see the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2022.
