  (August 08, 2017)

GLENWOOD, Ill., Aug. 8, 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 third quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Fiscal 2017 Third Quarter Highlights

  • Reported revenue of $39.9 million compared to $37.9 million in the third quarter of 2016 
    • Excluding the divested Medical Products business, pro forma revenue increased 7.5% compared to the prior year
    • Military revenues increased $0.7 million
  • Reported net income of $6.4 million compared to $7.3 million in the third quarter of 2016
    • Prior year net income included a $1.7 million post-tax gain on divestiture of the Medical Products business
  • On a GAAP basis, earnings per diluted share of $0.66 compared to $0.76 in the third quarter of 2016
  • Increasing full year 2017 outlook for diluted earnings per share to $1.81 to $1.87 from the previous range of $1.65 to $1.71

Mike Kaminski, President and Chief Executive Officer of Landauer stated, "Our third quarter results reflect the continued growth of our recurring business as well as the fulfillment of our non-recurring military order and a one-time tax benefit all contributing to a strong financial quarter. During the quarter we continued to advance our strategic initiatives in informatics and our Verifii digital dosimetry platform remains on schedule for a controlled commercial launch in the second half of calendar 2017."


Third Quarter Financial Overview

Revenues for the third fiscal quarter of 2017 were $39.9 million, a 5.3% increase compared to revenues of $37.9 million for the third fiscal quarter of 2016.  Excluding the Medical Products business which was divested in the third fiscal quarter of 2016, total revenues increased $2.8 million or 7.5% compared to the prior year period.  Radiation Measurement revenues for the quarter increased to $29.6 million from $27.5 million for the third fiscal quarter of 2016.  Military sales in the third fiscal quarter of 2017 increased $0.7 million compared to the prior year period.  The Company completed its final shipment for the National Guard order during the third fiscal quarter of 2017.  While the Company is continuing to pursue orders for its Radwatch products, there are currently no open contracts or purchase orders for military products.  Medical Physics revenues increased $0.7 million, or 7.3%, to $10.3 million.

Operating income for the third fiscal quarter of 2017 was $8.6 million, compared to operating income of $7.7 million for the third fiscal quarter of 2016.  Operating income increased $0.9 million compared to the prior year period due primarily to the timing of military sales.

Fiscal Nine Months Financial Overview

Revenues for the first nine months of fiscal 2017 were $116.6 million, a 3.6% increase compared to $112.5 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2016. Excluding the divested Medical Products business, total revenues increased $9.9 million or 9.3% compared to the prior year period.  Radiation Measurement revenues increased to $85.9 million from $77.7 million in the prior year period.  Military sales in the first nine months of fiscal 2017 increased $5.8 million compared to the prior year period. The Medical Physics segment increased $1.8 million, driven by demand for imaging services.

Operating income for the first nine months of fiscal 2017 was $23.8 million, compared to operating income of $21.2 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2016. Excluding the operating income from the divested Medical Products business, operating income increased $3.7 million compared to the prior year period due primarily to the timing of military sales.

Fiscal 2017 Outlook

Based on its results for the first nine months of 2017, the Company is increasing its full year 2017 outlook for diluted earnings per share to $1.81 to $1.87 from the previous range of $1.65 to $1.71. The Company continues to expect fiscal 2017 revenues in the range of $149 million to $154 million.

The revised earnings per share guidance reflects the Company's first three quarters of strong margins driven by the fulfillment of the episodic military orders and cost control.  The fourth quarter expectations are consistent with prior statements reflecting minimal capital shipments and an increase in non-recurring expenses associated with the Verifii launch and an increase in incentive accruals.

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.
