Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2012 Operating Results Overview:

Fourth quarter fiscal 2012 revenues totaled $588.5 million, net of a purchase accounting adjustment which reduced revenues by $11.6 million. This purchase accounting adjustment related to contingent revenue earned and received under Gen-Probe’s collaboration agreement with Novartis. The $11.6 million in cash was subsequently collected by Hologic following the acquisition. Excluding the effect of this purchase accounting adjustment, non-GAAP adjusted revenues were $600.2 million, an increase of 28.5% (29.8% on a constant currency basis) compared to revenues of $467.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011. This increase primarily resulted from: (i) the inclusion of Gen-Probe non-GAAP adjusted revenues of $101.1 million from the date of acquisition (August 1, 2012); (ii) a combined increase in Hologic’s legacy Diagnostics revenues of $13.5 million, or 9.0%, primarily from international ThinPrep sales, as well as growth in the molecular diagnostics product lines; (iii) growth in Breast Health revenues of $11.2 million, or 5.1%, driven by a $10.5 million, or 14.5%, increase in service revenue primarily related to the Company’s increased installed base of digital mammography systems; (iv) an increase in GYN Surgical revenues of $5.7 million, or 7.7%, from growth in sales of both the MyoSure hysteroscopic tissue removal (MyoSure) and the NovaSure endometrial ablation (NovaSure) systems, partially offset by the Company’s decision in the second quarter to discontinue sales of its Adiana permanent contraception (Adiana) system; and (v) an increase in Skeletal Health revenues of $1.7 million, or 7.2%. The impact on revenues from changes in foreign currencies as compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 was a reduction of approximately $6.1 million.

Excluding the revenue contribution from the Company’s acquisition of Gen-Probe during the quarter, revenues were $499.1 million as compared to the Company’s guidance provided on July 30, 2012 of $485 million, representing an increase of $32.0 million, or 6.9% (7.9% on a constant currency basis), compared to revenues in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011.

For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, the Company reported a net loss of $77.8 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, compared with net income of $27.6 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011.

The Company’s non-GAAP adjusted net income increased 10.8% to $98.3 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to $88.8 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, for the same period in the prior year. The Company’s fiscal 2012 and 2011 fourth quarter non-GAAP adjusted net income primarily excludes: (i) a non-cash charge of $90.9 million and $60.5 million, respectively, attributable to the amortization of intangible assets; (ii) non-cash interest expense of $16.5 million and $18.5 million, respectively, related to the Company’s Convertible Notes; (iii) acquisition-related costs of $38.5 million and $0.4 million, respectively; (iv) a net charge to operating expenses of $40.4 million and $11.3 million, respectively, attributable to contingent consideration related to certain of the Company’s acquisitions. The Company’s non-GAAP adjusted net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 also primarily excludes a reduction to Gen-Probe’s revenues of $11.6 million as a result of the effect of a purchase accounting adjustment related to Gen-Probe’s collaboration with Novartis and charges of: (i) $16.7 million related to restructuring and divestiture; (ii) $19.9 million (non-cash) related to the fair value write-up of acquired inventory sold; (iii) $2.5 million (non-cash) of additional depreciation expense related to the fair value write-up of acquired fixed assets; (iv) $5.8 million (non-cash) for the impairment of goodwill related to the Company’s MammoSite reporting unit as a result of changes in estimates; and (v) $4.5 million for acquired in-process research and development. Both periods also include income taxes related to such adjustments.

For the twelve months ended September 29, 2012, revenues totaled $2.0 billion, an increase of 11.9% (12.6% on a non-GAAP adjusted basis, excluding the $11.6 million purchase accounting adjustment), compared to revenues of $1.79 billion in the twelve months ended September 24, 2011. This increase resulted from: (i) the inclusion of Gen-Probe revenues of $89.5 million ($101.1 million on a non-GAAP basis) from the date of acquisition; (ii) a combined increase in Hologic’s legacy Diagnostics revenues of $57.3 million, or 10.0%, primarily from international ThinPrep sales, as well as growth in the molecular diagnostics product lines; (iii) growth in Breast Health revenues of $50.2 million, or 6.1%, driven by a $27.8 million, or 10.1%, increase in service revenues and a $22.4 million, or 4.1%, increase in product revenues primarily related to sales of the Company’s 2D and 3D Dimensions digital mammography systems; (iv) an increase in GYN Surgical revenues of $12.6 million, or 4.2%, primarily related to growth in sales of the MyoSure system, partially offset by a decrease in NovaSure and Adiana system sales (excluding Adiana revenues in both periods, GYN Surgical revenues increased $23.5 million, or 8.4%); and (v) an increase in Skeletal Health revenues of $3.7 million, or 4.1%, primarily due to an increase in both Mini C-Arm and bone densitometry system sales.

For the twelve months ended September 29, 2012, the Company reported a net loss of $73.6 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, compared with net income of $157.2 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, in the twelve months ended September 24, 2011. The Company’s non-GAAP adjusted net income increased 9.6% to $367.8 million, or $1.38 per diluted share, in the twelve months ended September 29, 2012 compared to $335.5 million, or $1.27 per diluted share, for the same period in the prior year. The Company’s non-GAAP adjusted net income for the twelve months of fiscal 2012 and 2011 primarily excludes: (i) a non-cash charge of $273.9 million and $235.8 million, respectively, attributable to the amortization of intangible assets; (ii) non-cash interest expense of $68.5 million and $72.9 million, respectively, related to the Company’s Convertible Notes; (iii) a net charge to operating expenses of $119.5 million and $12.0 million, respectively, attributable to contingent consideration related to certain of the Company’s acquisitions; (iv) acquisition-related costs and charges of $45.6 million and $2.3 million, respectively; (v) a non-cash loss of $42.3 million and $29.9 million, respectively, on the exchange of Convertible Notes; (vi) a net gain of $12.4 million and $84.5 million, respectively, included as a credit within operating expenses, related to the Company’s agreement to sell the rights of the Makena assets; and (vii) a non-cash charge of $19.9 million and $3.3 million, respectively, related to the fair value write-up of acquired inventory sold. The Company’s non-GAAP adjusted net income for the twelve months of fiscal 2012 also primarily excludes a reduction to Gen-Probe’s revenues of $11.6 million as a result of the effect of a purchase accounting adjustment related to Gen-Probe’s collaboration with Novartis and charges of: (i) $17.0 million related to restructuring and divestiture; (ii) $19.5 million related to the Company’s decision in the second quarter to discontinue sales of the Adiana product; (iii) $2.5 million (non-cash) of additional depreciation expense related to the fair value write-up of acquired fixed assets; (iv) $5.8 million (non-cash) for the impairment of goodwill related to the Company’s MammoSite reporting unit as a result of changes in estimates; and (v) $4.5 million for acquired in-process research and development. Both periods also include income taxes related to such adjustments.

Non-GAAP adjusted revenues, non-GAAP adjusted net income, non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share (non-GAAP adjusted EPS), and adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures. The Company’s definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures, and the reconciliations of these historical measures to the Company’s comparable GAAP financial measures for the periods presented, are set forth in the supplemental information attached to this press release. When analyzing the Company’s operating performance, investors should not consider these non-GAAP measures as a substitute for the comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

“We are very pleased with our execution during fiscal 2012. We finished the year with a strong quarter that included revenue growth in all four of our business segments,” said Rob Cascella, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Hologic is at the onset of two major product growth cycles with Dimensions 3D breast tomosynthesis and PANTHER automation. The addition of the Gen-Probe product line establishes Hologic as a leader in the diagnostics market. With our current portfolio, development pipeline and established global infrastructure, we are well-positioned for continued growth in fiscal 2013 and beyond.”

Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2012 Revenue Overview by Segment (As Compared to the Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2011):

  • Diagnostics revenues totaled $253.5 million in the current quarter, net of the $11.6 million reduction for the effect of purchase accounting related to Gen-Probe’s collaboration agreement with Novartis, compared to $150.5 million the prior year. Including the $11.6 million, non-GAAP adjusted revenues totaled $265.1 million, an increase of 76.1%. Sales growth was driven primarily by: (i) the inclusion of Gen-Probe revenues of $89.5 million ($101.1 million, as adjusted) from the date of acquisition; (ii) higher ThinPrep revenues (with the majority of the increase from international sales); and (iii) strong growth in Hologic’s legacy molecular diagnostics revenues. Excluding the revenue contribution from Gen-Probe, Diagnostics revenues were approximately $164.0 million, an increase of 9.0%.
  • Breast Health revenues increased to $230.3 million in the current quarter compared to $219.1 million in the prior year, an increase of 5.1%. Revenue growth was driven primarily by an increase in service revenues related to the Company’s growing installed base of digital mammography systems.
  • GYN Surgical revenues totaled $79.7 million in the current quarter compared to $74.0 million in the prior year, an increase of 7.7%. This was driven primarily by an increase in sales of the MyoSure system and, to a lesser extent, an increase in NovaSure system sales. These increases were partially offset by a $6.2 million reduction in revenues from the Adiana system as compared to the prior year as a result of the Company’s decision in the second quarter to discontinue sales of that product line. Excluding Adiana revenues in both periods, the increase in GYN Surgical revenues was approximately 17.0%.
  • Skeletal Health revenues totaled $25.1 million in the current quarter compared to $23.4 million in the prior year, an increase of 7.2%. This increase was primarily the result of an increase in Mini C-Arm product sales, slightly offset by a reduction in the number of bone densitometry system sales.

Gen-Probe Acquisition and Related Financing:

On August 1, 2012, the Company completed its acquisition of Gen-Probe for a total net purchase price of approximately $3.8 billion. Gen-Probe is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hologic and its results of operations are reported within the Company’s Diagnostics business segment from the date of acquisition. Concurrent with the completion of the acquisition, Hologic closed a private placement of $1.0 billion in aggregate principal amount of its 6.25% Senior Notes due 2020. Separately, the Company closed on its $2.8 billion of Senior Secured Credit Facilities, including an undrawn $300 million revolving credit facility. The blended interest yield on the Company’s total financing for the Gen-Probe acquisition was approximately 4.80%, including the amortization of the original issue discount (OID) and excluding the impact of deferred financing costs.

New Product:

On October 12, 2012, the FDA approved the Company’s APTIMA HPV 16 18/45 Genotype Assay for use on its TIGRIS system. Hologic’s APTIMA HPV 16 18/45 Genotype Assay is the first test FDA-approved for genotyping human papillomavirus (HPV) types 16, 18 and/or 45, which are associated with approximately 80% of all invasive cervical cancers worldwide. Detecting these HPV types provides health care professionals with more information regarding a patient’s risk of subsequently developing cervical cancer. The APTIMA HPV Assay received FDA approval in 2011 and was CE marked in 2008.

FDA Panel Review of C-View:

On October 24, 2012, the Radiological Devices Panel of the FDA voted that the expanded indications for use of Hologic’s Dimensions 3D mammography system to allow Hologic’s C-View synthesized 2D images in place of traditional 2D images in breast cancer screening are safe, effective and the benefits outweigh the risks. Sale of the 3-D version of this system in the United States remains subject to FDA approval. The C-View synthesized 2D software module is commercially available outside the United States, including countries in Europe, Latin America and Asia.

Radiology Community Votes Digital Breast Tomosynthesis “Hottest Clinical Procedure” of 2012 for Third Consecutive Year:

In October 2012 and for the third consecutive year, the readers and editors of the leading radiology portal, AuntMinnie.com, named digital breast tomosynthesis the “hottest clinical procedure” in radiology for 2012 in their annual event recognizing excellence in medical imaging. AuntMinnie.com provides a forum for radiology professionals to acknowledge the contributions of their peers to the field of medical imaging.

Financial Guidance:

The Company’s guidance includes current operations, including revenues from its approved/cleared products and its recently acquired businesses.

First Quarter Fiscal 2013 (Quarter Ending December 29, 2012):

  • The Company expects first quarter fiscal 2013 non-GAAP adjusted revenues of $640 million to $645 million (excludes an expected purchase accounting reduction of $17 million related to the Novartis collaboration). Year-over-year, this represents an expected increase of 35% to 36% over first quarter fiscal 2012 revenues of $472.7 million. The increase primarily reflects the inclusion of expected revenues related to the Gen-Probe acquisition, the continued ramp-up of new products including the Dimensions and MyoSure systems, and an overall strengthening in each of the Company’s operating segments, partially offset by a reduction in revenues related to the Adiana product.
  • The Company expects non-GAAP adjusted EPS of $0.37. This reflects additional expected interest expense of $45 million related to the financing of the Gen-Probe acquisition, as well as the expected seasonal increase in operating expenses related to trade shows, including RSNA, and national sales meetings that occur in the first quarter.

Fiscal 2013 (Year Ending September 28, 2013):

  • The Company expects fiscal 2013 non-GAAP adjusted revenues of $2.61 billion to $2.64 billion (excludes an expected purchase accounting reduction of $22 million related to the Novartis collaboration). Year-over-year, this represents an expected increase of 30% to 31% over fiscal 2012 non-GAAP revenues of $2.01 billion. This primarily reflects an increase in expected revenues related to the Gen-Probe acquisition and, to a lesser extent, increases in the Breast Health, GYN Surgical and legacy Diagnostics segments, partially offset by a reduction in revenues related to the Adiana product.
  • The Company expects non-GAAP adjusted EPS of $1.56 to $1.58. This reflects additional expected interest expense of $180 million related to the financing of the Gen-Probe acquisition, as well as a charge of approximately $25 million related to the medical device excise tax beginning on January 1, 2013. The medical device excise tax is expected be approximately $0.06 dilutive to EPS. The Company anticipates recording the charge as a General and Administrative expense in its Statements of Operations beginning in the second fiscal quarter.

Hologic may not generate expected revenues and may incur expenses or charges, realize income or gains, or execute acquisitions or dispositions in fiscal 2013 that could cause actual results to vary from the guidance above. In addition, the Company is continuing to monitor the effects of the U.S., European and general worldwide economic and regulatory conditions and related uncertainties, including the implementation of healthcare cost containment measures and healthcare reform legislation, as well as foreign currency fluctuations, which, along with other uncertainties facing the Company’s business including those referenced elsewhere herein and its filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, could adversely affect anticipated results.

    EXPLANATORY NOTES:
    ------------------
    (1) To reflect a fair value adjustment recorded in purchase accounting relating to contingent revenue earned and received under the Novartis collaboration post
     acquisition which was eliminated under purchase accounting.

    (2) Non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share was calculated based on 266,795 and 264,305 weighted average diluted shares outstanding for the year ended September 29, 2012
     and September 24, 2011, respectively.

    (3) To reflect an annual effective tax rate of 34.0% and 33.2% on a non-GAAP basis for the year ended September 29, 2012 and September 24, 2011, respectively.

Future Non-GAAP Adjustments:

Future GAAP EPS may be affected by changes in ongoing assumptions and judgments relating to the Company’s acquired businesses, and may also be affected by nonrecurring, unusual or unanticipated charges, expenses or gains, all of which are excluded in the calculation of non-GAAP adjusted EPS as described in this press release. It is therefore not practicable to reconcile non-GAAP adjusted EPS guidance to the most comparable GAAP measure.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

The Company has presented the following non-GAAP financial measures in this press release: adjusted revenues; adjusted net income; adjusted EPS; and adjusted EBITDA. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as its non-GAAP adjusted net income plus interest expense, net, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization expense included in its non-GAAP adjusted net income. The Company defines its non-GAAP adjusted revenues to include contingent revenue earned under the Novartis collaboration post-acquisition which was eliminated under purchase accounting. The Company defines its non-GAAP adjusted net income and adjusted EPS to exclude: (i) the amortization of intangible assets; (ii) acquisition-related charges and effects, such as charges for contingent consideration (comprised of (a) adjustments for changes in the fair value of the contingent consideration liabilities initially recorded as part of the purchase price of an acquisition as required by GAAP, and (b) contingent consideration that is tied to continuing employment of the former shareholders and employees which is recorded as compensation expense), transaction costs, integration costs including retention, and credits and/or charges associated with the write-up of acquired inventory and fixed assets to fair value, and the effect of a reduction in revenue related to the write-up of acquired unbilled accounts receivable to fair value; (iii) non-cash interest expense related to amortization of the debt discount for convertible debt securities; (iv) divestiture and restructuring charges; (v) non-cash loss on exchange of convertible notes; (vi) litigation settlement charges (benefits); (vii) other-than-temporary impairment losses on investments; and (viii) other one-time, nonrecurring, unusual or infrequent charges, expenses or gains that may not be indicative of the Company’s core business results; and include income taxes related to such adjustments.

The Company believes the use of non-GAAP adjusted net income is useful to investors by eliminating certain of the more significant effects of its acquisitions and related activities, non-cash charges resulting from the application of GAAP to convertible debt instruments with cash settlement features, charges related to debt extinguishment losses, investment impairments, litigation settlements, and divestiture and restructuring initiatives. These measures also reflect how Hologic manages its businesses internally. In addition to the adjustments set forth in the calculation of the Company’s non-GAAP adjusted net income and adjusted EPS, its non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA eliminates the effects of financing, income taxes and the accounting effects of capital spending. As with the items eliminated in its calculation of non-GAAP adjusted net income, these items may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to the overall operating performance of a company’s business. When analyzing the Company’s operating performance, investors should not consider these non-GAAP financial measures as a substitute for net (loss) income prepared in accordance with GAAP.
