Natus to Delay Reporting of its First Quarter Financial Results

- Provides First Quarter Estimates of Revenue and non-GAAP Earnings

- Provides Second Quarter and Updated Full Year 2013 Guidance

SAN CARLOS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Natus Medical Incorporated (NAS: BABY) today announced that it expects to report revenue of $84 million to $86 million and non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.11 to $0.14 for the first quarter of 2013. The Company previously guided first quarter revenue of $83 million to $85 million and non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.09 to $0.10. Natus further advised that it will delay the definitive reporting of its first quarter 2013 financial results that was previously scheduled for Tuesday, May 7.

Natus recently implemented an ERP System that delayed the Company's annual 10-K filing to April 10, 2013. The year-end delay has impacted the timing of the preparation and the completion of its auditor's review of the Company's first quarter financial report. A conference call will be scheduled to discuss the financial results upon completion of the quarterly report.

"Natus had a very good first quarter as reflected in our estimated results. Both our Neurology and Newborn Care businesses performed very well," said Jim Hawkins, Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

Financial Guidance

For the full year 2013, the Company now expects to report revenue of $362 million to $367 million and non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.84 to $0.87. The Company had earlier said it expected to report non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.81 to $0.84. For the second quarter of 2013, the Company expects to report revenue between $86 million to $90 million and non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.17 to $0.20.

The Company's second quarter and full year 2013 non-GAAP guidance and first quarter non-GAAP earnings estimate exclude acquisition related amortization expense and acquisition related restructuring charges and the tax effects of these items.

The Company's non-GAAP guidance includes the impact of expensing employee share based compensation. All earnings per share amounts are on a diluted basis.
