Hologic Announces Preliminary Revenue Results for First Quarter of Fiscal 2024

– Revenue of $1,013.1 Million Exceeds Guidance –

– 5.2% Organic Constant Currency Revenue Growth ex. COVID-19, also Exceeding Guidance –

Hologic, Inc. (Nasdaq: HOLX) announced today preliminary revenue results for its first fiscal quarter ended December 30, 2023.

The Company expects to report total revenues of approximately $1,013.1 million, a decrease of (5.7%) compared to the prior year period, or (6.4%) in constant currency. These preliminary results exceed the Company’s most recent revenue guidance range of $960 to $985 million, provided on November 9, 2023.

“Once again we delivered strong organic revenue performance ex. COVID-19 to start our fiscal year 2024,” said Steve MacMillan, the Company’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Adjusted for the impact of four fewer selling days compared to the prior year, we estimate that we grew total company organic revenue ex. COVID-19 over 9% in our fiscal first quarter. Each division continues to execute and our preliminary revenue results reinforce that we are a new Hologic; a bigger, faster, stronger company than prior to the pandemic.”

2 Preliminary Q1’24 constant currency organic ex. COVID-19 revenue exceeds the Company’s most recent guidance of 1.0% to 3.7%, provided on November 9, 2023. The Company’s fiscal Q1’24 had four fewer selling days compared to the prior year period.

Hologic has not yet completed its financial close processes for the first quarter of fiscal 2024, therefore GAAP financial results for the quarter have not yet been finalized. However, the Company expects non-GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS) to be towards the high-end of the guidance range of $0.92 to $0.97 provided on November 9, 2023.

Hologic intends to provide its full financial results for the first quarter on February 1, 2024. Until that time, the preliminary revenue results described in this press release are estimates only and are subject to revisions that could differ materially. When the Company reports its first quarter results, it also expects to provide updated financial guidance for the second quarter and full year of fiscal 2024, following the completion of its quarterly forecasting process.

J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference

Hologic is providing these updates in advance of its participation in the 42nd Annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference, which begins tomorrow. The Company will post its conference presentation to the investors section of its website at A live webcast of the Company’s presentation and question and answer session, which begins at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday, January 9, 2024, also may be accessed there. The webcast will be available for 30 days.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company has presented the following non-GAAP financial measures in this press release: constant currency revenues; organic revenues; organic revenues excluding COVID-19, and non-GAAP EPS. Organic revenue for the fiscal first quarter of 2024 excludes the divested Blood Screening and SSI ultrasound imaging businesses. Revenue from acquired businesses is generally included in organic revenue starting a year after the acquisition. Organic revenue excluding COVID-19 revenues is organic revenue less COVID-19 assay revenue, COVID-19 related sales of instruments, COVID-19 related revenue from Diagenode and Mobidiag, collection kits and ancillaries, as well as license revenue, and revenues from discontinued products. The Company defines its non-GAAP EPS and other non-GAAP financial measures to exclude, as applicable: (i) the amortization of intangible assets; (ii) the impairment of goodwill and intangible assets and equipment and the loss to record assets held-for-sale to fair value less costs to sell; (iii) adjustments to record contingent consideration at fair value; (iv) charges to write-off inventory for a product line discontinuance; (v) restructuring charges, facility closure and consolidation charges (including accelerated depreciation), and costs incurred to integrate acquisitions (including retention, transaction bonuses, legal and professional consulting services); (vi) transaction related expenses for acquisitions; (vii) third-party expenses incurred related to implementing the European MDR/IVDR requirements and obtaining the appropriate approvals for its existing products; (viii) debt extinguishment losses and related transaction costs; (ix) the unrealized (gains) losses on the mark-to-market of foreign currency contracts to hedge revenue and operating results for which the Company has not elected hedge accounting; (x) litigation settlement charges (benefits) and non-income tax related charges (benefits); (xi) other-than-temporary impairment losses on investments and realized gains and losses resulting from the sale of investments; (xii) the one-time discrete impacts related to internal restructurings and non-operational items; (xiii) other one-time, non-recurring, unusual or infrequent charges, expenses or gains that may not be indicative of the Company's core business results; and (xiv) income taxes related to such adjustments.

Because the quarterly financial information contained in this press release is preliminary, it is deemed to be forward-looking. The Company has not provided a reconciliation of preliminary organic revenue and preliminary organic revenue excluding COVID-19 to preliminary or projected GAAP revenue because of the unreasonable efforts it would take to provide such reconciliations at this time. The Company is also unable to provide GAAP EPS in this press release because certain significant items have not yet been finalized. Such items depend on various factors and could have a material impact on reported GAAP EPS. GAAP results and a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure will be presented in connection with the Company’s press release reporting full financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2024 scheduled to be released after the close of the market on February 1, 2024. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered supplemental to, and not a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company's definition of non-GAAP measures may differ from similarly titled measures used by others.

The non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release adjust for specified items that can be highly variable or difficult to predict. The Company generally uses non-GAAP financial measures to facilitate management's financial and operational decision-making, including evaluation of Hologic's historical operating results and comparison to competitors' operating results. Non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of the Company's operations that, when viewed with GAAP results and the reconciliations to corresponding GAAP financial measures (when they become available), may provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting Hologic's business. Because non-GAAP financial measures exclude the effect of items that increase or decrease the company's reported results of operations, management strongly encourages investors to review, when they become available, the Company's consolidated financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety.
