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 GuidanceManagement 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%).
