SAN DIEGO, Nov. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ – CareFusion Corp. (NYSE: CFN), a leading, global medical technology company, today reported financial results for its first quarter of fiscal 2015, ended Sept. 30.
"Our team started the year strong, executing well across the business, staying focused on customers and keeping us right on track for the plans we had for the year," said Kieran T. Gallahue, chairman and CEO of CareFusion. "We continued to build on the momentum we had exiting fiscal 2014, with the entire Procedural Solutions segment growing across the board, implementations in Dispensing Technologies progressing as expected and Infusion Systems once again delivering strong committed contracts during the quarter.
"We are also supporting BD in its integration planning efforts to help prepare for a successful transition. We look forward to the opportunities our customers, employees and shareholders will have as we combine with BD to become one of the largest, global leaders in med tech."
On Oct. 5, CareFusion and BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) announced a definitive agreement under which BD will acquire CareFusion for $58.00 per share in cash and stock, or a total of approximately $12.2 billion. Earlier this week, BD filed its Form S-4 registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission, providing further detail of the planned merger. The transaction, which is expected to close by mid-calendar year 2015, is subject to a CareFusion shareholder vote and satisfying customary closing conditions, including regulatory approvals.
First Quarter Results
CareFusion reported first quarter fiscal 2015 revenue of $922 million, compared to $830 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2014, an 11 percent increase on both a reported and constant currency basis. Contributions from the Vital Signs acquisition, continued momentum in the Dispensing Technologies business line, and gains across the Procedural Solutions segment led to strong top-line growth during the quarter.
Gross profit increased 8 percent from the prior year period to $457 million, with gross margins declining 140 basis points due to product mix associated with the acquisitions of Vital Signs and Sendal and the cost of installation resources in the Dispensing Technologies business line. These pressures offset gross margin improvements from the Infusion Systems business line and an increase in volume in the Dispensing Technologies business line.
Operating income was $126 million, up 9 percent from $116 million in the prior year period. Excluding nonrecurring items, adjusted operating income increased 17 percent to $166 million.
Operating expenses totaled $333 million. Excluding nonrecurring items, adjusted operating expenses were $295 million, an increase of 5 percent over the prior year period, primarily driven by acquired selling, general and administrative costs from the Vital Signs acquisition.
The company reported net income of $76 million, or $0.37 per diluted share. Adjusted net income increased 8 percent from the prior year period to $104 million, or $0.50 per diluted share.
First quarter revenue for the Medical Systems segment was $528 million, a 1 percent increase from the prior year period on a reported basis, led by strong performance in the Dispensing Technologies business line.
Segment profit for the quarter increased 14 percent to $84 million from $74 million in the prior year period. Adjusted segment profit increased 9 percent to $98 million.
First quarter revenue for the Procedural Solutions segment was $394 million, a 29 percent increase from the prior year period on a reported basis, led by contributions from Vital Signs. Excluding the impact of the Vital Signs and Sendal acquisitions, segment revenue increased 4 percent during the quarter, with organic growth primarily attributed to continued strength in the company's clinically differentiated product lines.
Segment profit was even with the prior year period at $42 million. On an adjusted basis, segment profit grew 31 percent to $68 million.
Additional first quarter and recent highlights included:
Fiscal 2015 Outlook
For the fiscal year ending June 30, 2015, CareFusion continues to expect revenue to grow 5 to 7 percent on a constant currency basis compared to fiscal 2014 revenue of $3.84 billion.
During the second quarter of fiscal 2015, the company settled a previously disclosed tax audit with the Internal Revenue Service that will result in a tax rate range of 20 to 22 percent for the full fiscal year. The tax settlement will have a positive impact on adjusted, diluted EPS in the second quarter, which will be partially offset for the year by an increased diluted weighted average outstanding share count of approximately 208 million, reflecting the suspension of the company's share buyback program as a result of the proposed merger with BD. As a result, adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations are now expected to increase to a range of $2.80 to $2.95 for fiscal 2015.
Beginning with the second quarter of fiscal 2015, CareFusion expects to exclude deal-related expenses associated with its planned merger with BD in its presentation of adjusted financial results.
Given the recent announcement that CareFusion and BD have entered into a definitive merger agreement, CareFusion will no longer hold conference calls for its quarterly earnings.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures by CareFusion Corporation
This CareFusion news release and the information contained herein present non-GAAP financial measures that exclude certain amounts, as follows: "adjusted segment profit" and "adjusted operating expenses," which exclude amortization of acquired intangibles, as well as nonrecurring restructuring and acquisition integration charges;"adjusted operating income" and "adjusted operating margin," which exclude amortization of acquired intangibles, nonrecurring restructuring and acquisition integration charges, and inventory valuation step-up charges from acquisitions; and "adjusted net income," "adjusted diluted earnings per share" and "adjusted effective tax rate," which exclude the amortization of acquired intangibles, nonrecurring restructuring and acquisition integration charges, inventory valuation step-up charges from acquisitions and nonrecurring tax items. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measures for these non-GAAP financial measures are segment profit, operating expenses, operating income, operating margin, net income, diluted earnings per share and effective tax rate. The company has included below unaudited adjusted financial information for the quarters ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, which includes a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures.
The company's management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate the company's performance and provides them to investors as a supplement to the company's reported results, as they believe this information provides additional insight into the company's operating performance by disregarding certain nonrecurring items. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation, as a substitute for, or as superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the company's financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. While the types of items and charges excluded from the company's non-GAAP financial measures may occur in the future, the company's management believes that they are not reflective of the day-to-day offering of its products and services and relate more to strategic, multi-year corporate actions, without predictable trends, or discrete and unusual or infrequent transactions that are not indicative of future operations or business trends.

In connection with acquisition transactions, the company acquires inventory that is recorded at fair value at the time of the acquisition. As the fair value of acquired finished goods inventory is recorded at the anticipated customer sales price less cost to sell, which is generally higher than the historical carrying value, the company must record a charge equal to the difference between the fair value and historical carrying value as the underlying product is sold. The company began excluding from its adjusted results inventory valuation step-up charges from acquisitions during the quarter ended December 31, 2013, as the company does not believe such non-cash charges are reflective of ongoing operating results.
