LONG ISLAND CITY, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Sirona (NAS: SIRO) , the dental technology leader, today announced its financial results for the quarter ended December 31, 2012.

First Quarter Fiscal 2013 vs. First Quarter Fiscal 2012 Financial Results

Revenue was $272.4 million, an increase of $14.3 million or up 5.5% (and up 8.6% on a constant currency basis). The Company's business segments performed as follows: CAD/CAM Systems increased 13.5% (up 16.5% on a constant currency basis), Treatment Centers increased 4.3% (up 8.4% on a constant currency basis), Imaging Systems increased 2.7% (up 4.9% on a constant currency basis), and Instruments decreased 5.8% (down 2.1% on a constant currency basis).

Revenue in the United States increased 29.0%, while revenues outside the United States decreased 3.3% (up 0.6% constant currency). We had exceptional growth in the U.S. benefiting from strong demand for our Imaging and CAD/CAM products as well as from anticipated tax changes. Despite solid demand, sales in international markets were impacted by Omnicam capacity constraints and from the prioritization of the U.S., the challenging prior-year comparison for Imaging, and a back-end loaded order intake during the quarter, which will translate into sales in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Gross profit was $151.9 million, up $13.1 million. Gross profit margin was 55.8% in the first quarter of Fiscal 2013, compared to 53.8% in the prior year. Gross profit margin as a percent of sales was positively impacted by a positive segment and product mix and lower deal related amortization.

Net income for the first quarter of 2013 was $38.3 million, or $0.68 per diluted share, versus $38.3 million, or $0.67 per diluted share in the prior year period. Non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share for the first quarter of 2013 was $0.94 compared to $0.87 in the prior year quarter. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP measure to earnings per share calculated on a GAAP basis is provided in the attached table.

At December 31, 2012, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $124.2 million and total debt of $75.4 million, resulting in net cash of $48.8 million. This compares to net cash of $75.6 million at September 30, 2012.

Jost Fischer, Chairman and CEO of Sirona commented: "It is extremely gratifying for my last quarter as CEO of Sirona to leave on such a high note, reporting a record first quarter. The Company is in an excellent position. We continue to see significant enthusiasm surrounding the launch of our revolutionary Omnicam. Demand was so strong that we could not fulfill all of our orders. I am pleased to report that the ramp up phase of manufacturing for the Omnicam is behind us. We continue to see strong demand across Sirona's broad product portfolio and in all major geographies. I am pleased to see us begin fiscal 2013, building on last year's success: we extended our global leadership position and delivered strong financial results."

Mr. Fischer continued: "For the quarter, three of our segments had record quarters, with CAD/CAM and Treatment Centers leading our growth, up 16.5% and 8.4% respectively, on a constant currency basis. Revenue growth was extremely strong in the U.S., up 29.0%, positively impacted by our expanded exclusivity agreement with Patterson, strong demand for our CAD/CAM and Imaging products, and the anticipated implementation of the Medical Device Tax in 2013. Sales outside the U.S. were impacted by prioritization of shipments, but we are seeing strong order intake and we expect to see it reflected in our sales beginning next quarter. Our positive momentum across the product portfolio is continuing into the second quarter and we expect revenue growth to accelerate throughout the year."

Fiscal 2013 Guidance

Management continues to anticipate fiscal year 2013 constant currency revenue growth to be in the range of 9% to 11%, and EPS on a non-GAAP adjusted basis in a range of $3.33 to $3.43 (reflecting growth of approximately 10% to 13%).
