“Our second-quarter fiscal year 2024 results reflect strong double-digit growth across our combined device, masks and accessories, and residential care software businesses, as well as cost discipline to support an acceleration in profitability,” said Mick Farrell, ResMed’s CEO. “We continue to expand the production and delivery of our market-leading flow generator platforms, and we are successfully launching our latest generation platform, AirSense 11, into new markets and geographies around the world. The strong growth in patient flow we’ve seen over the past several quarters has supported ongoing device growth, as well as augmented and accelerated our replenishment programs for sustained mask and accessories growth. Organic growth of our residential care software business in home medical equipment, home health, home nursing, and beyond, catalyzed by strategic acquisitions, continues to deliver and complements our core mask and accessory business growth.

“As we look ahead, ResMed is well-positioned to lean into leading the expansion and growth of sleep health and breathing health. We are the clear leader in a very large and growing market; I’m excited about ResMed’s future as we focus on delivering for our stakeholders through product innovation, operational excellence, and increasing brand awareness as we progress towards our goal of improving 250 million lives in 2025.”

(A) In order to provide a framework for assessing how our underlying businesses performed excluding, the effect of foreign currency fluctuations, we provide certain financial information on a “constant currency” basis, which is in addition to the actual financial information presented. In order to calculate our constant currency information, we translate the current period financial information using the foreign currency exchange rates that were in effect during the previous comparable period. However, constant currency measures should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to U.S. dollar measures that reflect current period exchange rates, or to other financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

(B) See the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures in the table at the end of the press release.

Discussion of Second Quarter Results
All comparisons are to the prior year period unless otherwise noted

  • Revenue grew by 11 percent on a constant currency basis, driven by increased demand for our sleep devices, as well as strong growth across our mask product portfolio.
    • Revenue in the U.S., Canada, and Latin America, excluding Software-as-a-Service, grew by 9 percent.
    • Revenue in Europe, Asia, and other markets, excluding Software-as-a-Service, grew by 12 percent on a constant currency basis.
    • Software-as-a-Service revenue increased by 24 percent, reflecting incremental revenue from our acquisition of MEDIFOX DAN and continued organic growth in our SaaS portfolio.
  • Gross margin decreased by 50 basis points mainly due to costs associated with a field safety notification for masks with magnets. Non-GAAP gross margin increased by 10 basis points, primarily due to reduced freight costs and favorable foreign currency movements, partially offset by an unfavorable product mix and component cost increases.
  • Selling, general, and administrative expenses increased by 4 percent on a constant currency basis. SG&A expenses improved to 19.1 percent of revenue in the quarter, compared with 20.5 percent in the same period of the prior year. The increase in SG&A expenses was mainly due to increases in employee-related expenses and incremental expenses associated with our acquisition of MEDIFOX DAN.
  • We recorded $64.2 million of restructuring related charges associated with an evaluation of our existing operations to increase operational efficiency, decrease costs, and increase profitability. Restructuring charges were comprised of $28.6 million of employee severance and other one-time termination benefits, $33.2 million of intangible asset impairments associated with the wind down of certain business activities, and $2.4 million of other miscellaneous asset impairments.
  • Income from operations decreased by 2 percent, and non-GAAP income from operations increased by 20 percent.
  • Net income for the quarter was $208.8 million and diluted earnings per share was $1.42. Non-GAAP net income increased by 13% to $277.3 million, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share increased by 13% to $1.88, predominantly attributable to strong sales and modest growth of operating expenses.
  • Operating cash flow for the quarter was $272.8 million, compared to net income in the current quarter of $208.8 million and non-GAAP net income of $277.3 million.
  • During the quarter, we paid $70.7 million in dividends and repurchased 335,000 shares for consideration of $50 million as part of our ongoing capital management.

Other Business and Operational Highlights

  • Introduced a new operating model with three new global leadership positions designed to accelerate long-term profitable growth. Operating model evolution intended to increase the velocity of product development and sharpen focus on customers and brand through a Product-led, Customer-centric, and Brand-enhanced organization. Justin Leong appointed Chief Product Officer, Katrin Pucknat became Chief Marketing Officer, and Mike Fliss named Chief Revenue Officer.
  • Announced the retirement of Rob Douglas, former President and Chief Operating Officer, effective January 1, 2024. Rob remains as a consultant and advisor to the CEO through 2024.
  • Announced the results of a study on the global burden of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Network Open. The study estimates a 23% increase in COPD by 2050, representing 600 million patients globally, with disproportionate increases expected in women (47%) and low- and middle-income countries (32%).
  • Successfully defended patent infringement complaint brought against ResMed by New York University; a significant victory that protects ResMed’s innovation and ongoing investments to provide patients with leading therapy solutions.

(A) ResMed adjusts for the impact of the amortization of acquired intangibles, restructuring expenses, field safety notification expenses, acquisition-related expenses, and associated tax effects from their evaluation of ongoing operations, and believes that investors benefit from adjusting these items to facilitate a more meaningful evaluation of current operating performance.

ResMed believes that non-GAAP diluted earnings per share is an additional measure of performance that investors can use to compare operating results between reporting periods. ResMed uses non-GAAP information internally in planning, forecasting, and evaluating the results of operations in the current period and in comparing it to past periods. ResMed believes this information provides investors better insight when evaluating ResMed’s performance from core operations and provides consistent financial reporting. The use of non-GAAP measures is intended to supplement, and not to replace, the presentation of net income and other GAAP measures. Like all non-GAAP measures, non-GAAP earnings are subject to inherent limitations because they do not include all the expenses that must be included under GAAP.

(A) Totals and subtotals may not add due to rounding.

(B) In order to provide a framework for assessing how our underlying businesses performed excluding the effect of foreign currency fluctuations, we provide certain financial information on a “constant currency basis,” which is in addition to the actual financial information presented. In order to calculate our constant currency information, we translate the current period financial information using the foreign currency exchange rates that were in effect during the previous comparable period. However, constant currency measures should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to U.S. dollar measures that reflect current period exchange rates, or to other financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
