Analogic Corporation (NASDAQ:ALOG) Files An 8-K Regulation FD DisclosureItem 7.01
In connection with investor meetings to be held during the weeks of October16 and October23, 2017, Analogic Corporation (the “Company”) plans to re-affirm its fiscal 2018 outlook as follows:
Fiscal 2018 Outlook
As a result of the Company’s completed restructuring actions, overall profitability is expected to improve in fiscal 2018 despite expected lower year-over-year revenues. Total Company revenue for fiscal 2018 is expected to be between $445 and $460 million with non-GAAP operating margins of 10% to 11% resulting in non-GAAP diluted EPS of $2.70 to $2.90. First quarter revenue is expected to be lower than the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 with sequential improvement through the remainder of fiscal 2018, resulting in an approximate 45%/55% revenue split between the first and second half of the year.
|•||Ultrasound revenue for fiscal 2018 is expected to be down mid-single digits with positive low-single digit non-GAAP operating margin as the company begins to see the benefit of its product portfolio optimization efforts and lower operating expenses|
|•||Medical Imaging revenue for fiscal 2018 is expected to be down low-double digits with mid-teens non-GAAP operating margin due primarily to the impact of a customer out-sourcing decision in CT|
|•||Security and Detection revenue for fiscal 2018 is expected to have double digit growth, with mid-teens non-GAAP operating margin on continued demand for medium speed and high speed check baggage screening systems|
