  (May 09, 2017)

GLENWOOD, Ill., May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Landauer, Inc. (NYSE: LDR), a recognized leader in personal and environmental radiation measurement and monitoring and outsourced medical physics services, today reported financial results for its fiscal 2017 second quarter ended March 31, 2017.

Fiscal 2017 Second Quarter Highlights

  • Reported revenue of $39.1 million compared to $38.1 million in the second quarter of 2016 
    • Excluding the divested Medical Products business, pro forma revenue increased 9.8% compared to the prior year
    • Military revenues increased $2.9 million
  • Reported net income of $5.2 million compared to $4.3 million in the second quarter of 2016
    • Excluding the divested Medical Products business, pro forma net income increased 30.0% compared to the prior year
  • On a GAAP basis, earnings per diluted share of $0.54 compared to $0.45 in the second quarter of 2016

Mike Kaminski, President and Chief Executive Officer of Landauer stated, "Our second quarter results continue to demonstrate our strong positioning in the marketplace and the progress we are making against our growth and lean initiatives. During the quarter we continued to see strong demand for our core recurring revenue services and benefitted from a large military shipment in the period. In addition, testing and refinement of our Verifii digital dosimetry platform remains on schedule for a controlled commercial launch in the second half of calendar 2017."


Second Quarter Financial Overview

Revenues for the second fiscal quarter of 2017 were $39.1 million, a 2.6% increase compared to revenues of $38.1 million for the second fiscal quarter of 2016.  Excluding the Medical Products business which was divested in the third fiscal quarter of 2016, total revenues increased $3.5 million or 9.8% compared to the prior year period.  Radiation Measurement revenues for the quarter increased to $28.7 million from $25.5 million for the second fiscal quarter of 2016.  Military sales in the second fiscal quarter of 2017 increased $2.9 million compared to the prior year period.  Medical Physics revenues increased $0.4 million, or 4.0%, to $10.4 million.

Operating income for the second fiscal quarter of 2017 was $7.8 million, compared to operating income of $7.2 million for the second fiscal quarter of 2016.  Excluding the operating income from the divested Medical Products business, operating income increased $1.0 million compared to the prior year period due primarily to the timing of military sales.

Fiscal Six Months Financial Overview

Revenues for the first six months of fiscal 2017 were $76.7 million, a 2.8% increase compared to $74.6 million for the first six months of fiscal 2016. Excluding the divested Medical Products business, total revenues increased $7.1 million or 10.2% compared to the prior year period.  Radiation Measurement revenues increased to $56.3 million from $50.2 million in the prior year period.  Military sales in the first six months of fiscal 2017 increased $5.1 million compared to the prior year period. The Medical Physics segment increased $1.0 million, driven by demand for imaging services.

Operating income for the first six months of fiscal 2017 was $15.3 million, compared to operating income of $13.5 million for the first six months of fiscal 2016. Excluding the operating income from the divested Medical Products business, operating income increased $2.8 million compared to the prior year period due primarily to the timing of military sales.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Management believes the disclosure of certain non-GAAP financial measures enhances investor understanding of our financial performance.  Non-GAAP financial measures disclosed in this report include: EBITDA, Pro Forma Revenue and Pro Forma Operating Income.

EBITDA is presented here not as an alternative to net income, but rather as a measure of the Company's operating performance and is not intended to be a presentation in accordance with GAAP. Since EBITDA (generally, net income plus interest expenses, taxes, depreciation and amortization) is not calculated identically by all companies, this presentation may not be comparable to EBITDA presentations disclosed by other companies. Management believes that EBITDA is useful in evaluating the Company's operating performance compared to that of other companies in its industry because the calculation of EBITDA generally eliminates the effects of certain non-cash and other items that may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance.

The Pro Forma Revenue and Pro Forma Operating Income measures exclude the Medical Products business, which was divested in May 2016. 

These financial measures are not recognized measurements under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to the most directly comparable measures presented in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures is included within this news release.
