The Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenues is pegged at $862.3 million for the soon-to-be-reported quarter, indicating a 3.9% increase from the year-ago quarter’s level. The same for earnings stands at $3.00 per share, implying a 7.4% decline from the prior-year period’s reported number.
Factors to Note
Cooper Companies reports revenues under two major segments — CooperVision (CVI) and CooperSurgical (CSI). Both these segments displayed strength in the past few quarters. This trend is likely to have continued in the second quarter of fiscal 2023.
Solid performance across the company’s daily silicone hydrogel portfolio and myopia management, and strength in torics and multifocals are expected to have contributed to the CVI segment’s performance.
The segment’s revenues for fiscal 2023 are projected in the range of $2.352-$2.388 billion (organic growth of 8-9%). This momentum is likely to get reflected in the to-be-reported quarter’s results.
CSI displayed strength in the fiscal first quarter of 2023, with revenues of $277.2 million. The top line increased 23% year over year on a constant currency basis and 26% on a reported basis.
The segment benefited from fertility as well as surgical products. This trend is likely to have continued in the quarter to be reported.
For fiscal 2023, CSI revenues are expected in the range of $1.144-$1.166 billion (5-7% organic growth). This strength is likely to get reflected in the to-be-reported quarter’s results.
During the fiscal first quarter of 2023, the company witnessed a significant increase in revenues with respect to MiSight's 1-day contact lenses. The momentum is likely to have continued in the fiscal second quarter, courtesy of the excellent progress of its key accounts and entry into new pilot programs with retailers and buying groups globally.
Cooper Companies has been witnessing higher demand for contact lenses, driven by the recent global transition to daily contact lenses by customers. The company’s advancements in customized product offerings are expected to have contributed to its fiscal second-quarter performance.
