SAN RAMON, Calif., Dec. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CooperCompanies (NYSE: COO) today announced financial results for its fiscal fourth quarter and full year ended October 31, 2021.

  • Fourth quarter revenue increased 11% year-over-year to $759.1 million. Fiscal 2021 revenue increased 20% to $2,922.5 million.

  • Fourth quarter GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS) $2.21, up 57 cents or 35% from last year's fourth quarter. Fiscal 2021 GAAP diluted EPS $59.16, up 1,131% from fiscal 2020.

  • Fourth quarter Non-GAAP diluted EPS $3.28, up 12 cents or 4% from last year's fourth quarter. Fiscal 2021 non-GAAP diluted EPS $13.24, up 37% from fiscal 2020. See "Reconciliation of Selected GAAP Results to Non-GAAP Results" below.

Commenting on the results, Al White, Cooper's President and CEO said, "We closed this fiscal year with record annual revenue, profits and cash flow. We continued taking market share globally in both contact lenses and fertility, and delivered on our strategic objectives including investing and growing our myopia management franchise. As we enter 2022, we have momentum and are well positioned to continue executing on our growth strategies across both businesses."

Fourth Quarter Operating Results

  • Revenue $759.1 million, up 11% from last year’s fourth quarter, up 11% in constant currency.

  • Interest expense $5.0 million compared with $6.7 million in last year's fourth quarter driven by lower average debt levels.

  • Cash provided by operations $174.5 million offset by capital expenditures $65.0 million resulted in free cash flow of $109.5 million.

  • Net debt outstanding at quarter end was $1,383.1 million (total debt of $1,479.0 million less quarter-end cash and cash equivalents of $95.9 million). Adjusted leverage ratio (net debt over adjusted EBITDA) of 1.4x.

Fiscal Year 2022 Financial Guidance
We continue to monitor and evaluate the scope, duration and impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic on our operations and financial results. While we still view resurgences as a significant risk factor to our outlook, we are initiating our fiscal year 2022 guidance*. Details are summarized as follows:

  • Fiscal 2022 total revenue $3,032 - $3,090 million (up 6% to 8% in constant currency)

    • CVI revenue $2,225 - $2,267 million (up 6% to 8% in constant currency)

    • CSI revenue $807 - $823 million (up 6% to 8% in constant currency)

  • Fiscal 2022 non-GAAP diluted earnings per share $13.60 - $14.00 (up 9.5% to 12.5% in constant currency)

* Note: Our fiscal year 2022 guidance does not include the Generate Life Sciences acquisition announced on November 10th, 2021.

Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share guidance excludes amortization and impairment of intangible assets, and other exceptional or unusual income or gains and charges or expenses including acquisition, integration and manufacturing related costs which we may incur as part of our continuing operations.

With respect to the Company’s guidance expectations, the Company has not reconciled non-GAAP diluted earnings per share guidance to GAAP diluted earnings per share due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting acquisition-related, integration and restructuring charges and expenses, which are reconciling items between the non-GAAP and GAAP measure. Due to the unknown effect, timing and potential significance of such charges and expenses that impact GAAP diluted earnings per share, the Company is not able to provide such guidance.

Reconciliation of Selected GAAP Results to Non-GAAP Results
To supplement our financial results and guidance presented on a GAAP basis, we use non-GAAP measures that we believe are helpful in understanding our results. The non-GAAP measures exclude costs which we generally would not have otherwise incurred in the periods presented as a part of our continuing operations. Our non-GAAP financial results and guidance are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Management uses supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate our business and make operating decisions. These non-GAAP measures are among the factors management uses in planning and forecasting for future periods. We believe it is useful for investors to understand the effects of these items on our consolidated operating results. Our non-GAAP financial measures may include the following adjustments, and as appropriate, the related income tax effects and changes in income attributable to noncontrolling interests:

  • We exclude the effect of amortization and impairment of intangible assets from our non-GAAP financial results. Amortization of intangible assets will recur in future periods; however, the amounts are affected by the timing and size of our acquisitions. Impairment of intangible assets is a non-recurring cost.

  • We exclude the effect of acquisition and integration expenses and the effect of restructuring expenses from our non-GAAP financial results. Such expenses generally diminish over time with respect to past acquisitions; however, we generally will incur similar expenses in connection with any future acquisitions. We incurred significant expenses in connection with our acquisitions and also incurred certain other operating expenses or income, which we generally would not have otherwise incurred in the periods presented as a part of our continuing operations. Acquisition and integration expenses include direct effects of acquisition accounting, such as inventory fair value step-up and items such as personnel costs for transitional employees, other acquired employee related costs and integration related professional services. Restructuring expenses include items such as employee severance, product rationalization, facility and other exit costs.

  • We exclude other exceptional or unusual charges or expenses and gains or income. These can be variable and difficult to predict, such as COVID related charges, certain litigation expenses, changes in fair value of contingent considerations, and product transition costs, that are not what we consider as typical of our continuing operations. Investors should consider non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as replacements for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

  • We report revenue growth using the non-GAAP financial measure of constant currency so that revenue results may be evaluated excluding the effect of foreign currency rate fluctuations. To present this information, current period revenue for entities reporting in currencies other than the United States dollar are converted into United States dollars at the average foreign exchange rates for the corresponding period in the prior year.

  • We define the non-GAAP measure of free cash flow as cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures. We believe free cash flow is useful for investors as an additional measure of liquidity because it represents cash that is available to grow the business, make strategic acquisitions, repay debt, buyback common stock or to fund dividend payments. Management uses free cash flow internally to understand, manage, make operating decisions and evaluate our business. In addition, we use free cash flow to help plan and forecast future periods.

  • We exclude unrealized and realized gains and losses on our minority investments as we do not believe that these components of income or expense have a direct correlation to our ongoing operations.
