January 24, 2019

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 24, 2019--ResMed Inc. (NYSE: RMD, ASX: RMD), a world-leading connected health company, today announced results for its quarter ended December 31, 2018.

Second Quarter 2019 Highlights

Revenue increased 8% to $651.1 million; up 9% on a constant currency basis Gross Margin expanded 70bps to 58.9% Net operating profit increased 8%; non-GAAP operating profit up 15% GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.86; non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $1.00

“We had a solid quarter with top-line growth and gross margin expansion, as well as continued fiscal discipline to drive leverage and improved operating profit,” said Mick Farrell, ResMed’s CEO. “Our new AirFit F30 and AirFit N30i masks have been launched in many markets, and mask sales are growing well globally. During the quarter we further expanded our software and device ecosystems, through the acquisitions of MatrixCare and Propeller Health, to provide digital health solutions to millions more people worldwide. We are empowering people to live healthier and happier lives where they live, and we are doing this by providing innovative software, services, and solutions to improve outcomes, create efficiencies, and reduce overall healthcare system costs.”

Discussion of Second Quarter Results

Revenue in the U.S., Canada, and Latin America, excluding Software as a Service, grew by 9 percent compared to the prior year period, driven by strong sales across our mask and device product portfolios. Revenue in combined Europe, Asia and other markets grew by 1 percent on a constant currency basis compared to the same period of the prior year. Mask sales were strong across these markets. As expected, device sales in France and Japan were impacted as customers completed their connected device upgrade programs. Device sales outside France and Japan grew well. Software as a Service revenue increased by 63 percent, compared to the prior year period, due to continued growth in our Brightree service offerings and incremental contribution from the acquisition of MatrixCare, which closed in the second quarter and HEALTHCARE first, which closed in the first quarter. Gross margin expanded by 70 basis points over the prior year period, primarily due to benefits from manufacturing and procurement efficiencies, product mix changes and higher margin contribution from MatrixCare, partially offset by declines in average selling prices. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased by 6 percent compared to the prior year period, or by 8 percent on a constant currency basis. Excluding the impact of recent acquisitions, selling, general and administrative expenses increased by 4 percent on a constant currency basis. SG&A expenses improved to 24.8 percent of revenue in the quarter, compared with 25.2 percent in the same period of the prior year. Income from operations increased by 8 percent and non-GAAP income from operations increased by 15 percent compared to the prior year period. Net income increased by 1,208 percent, predominantly attributable to the one-time transition tax recognized in the prior year quarter, and non-GAAP net income remained stable compared to the prior year period. Non-GAAP measures adjust for amortization of acquired intangibles, MatrixCare deferred revenue, acquisition-related expenses, and the impact of U.S. tax reform. GAAP diluted earnings per share increased by 1,129 percent, predominantly attributable to the one-time transition tax recognized in the prior year quarter, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share remained stable compared with the same period of the prior year. Cash flow from operations for the quarter was $129.5 million, compared to net income in the current quarter of $124.6 million. During the quarter we paid $52.8 million in dividends.

Other Business and Operational Highlights

Completed the acquisition of MatrixCare, a leader in software solutions for more than 15,000 providers across skilled nursing, life plan communities, senior living and private duty, for consideration of $750.0 million. Commenced the previously announced joint venture with Verily, combining ResMed’s expertise in sleep apnea and Verily’s advanced health data analytics technologies, to study the health and financial impacts of undiagnosed and untreated sleep apnea, and to develop software solutions that enable healthcare providers to more efficiently identify, diagnose, treat and manage individuals with sleep apnea and other breathing-related sleep disorders. Announced the acquisition of Propeller Health, a digital therapeutics company providing connected health solutions for people living with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma, for $225.0 million. The transaction closed on January 7, 2019. Through Brightree, acquired Apacheta Corporation, a cloud-based Software as a Service provider offering mobile applications that empower companies to automate and streamline processes in route sales, field marketing, pick-up and delivery, transportation, and field services. Named one of America’s top 100 corporate citizens for the third straight year by Forbes and JUST Capital. ResMed ranked #18 out of 890 large publicly traded U.S. companies, and #1 out of 32 “Health Care Equipment & Services” companies.
