IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- 

Q3 2012 Highlights (compared to Q3 2011):

  • Product revenue rose 15% to $112.1 million
  • Masimo rainbow® revenue rose 41% to $11.0 million, including 92% increase in SpHb® revenue 
  • Shipped 33,100 Masimo SET® and Masimo rainbow® SET units

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 29, 2012, and that its Board of Directors has declared a special cash dividend of $1.00 per share, payable on December 11, 2012 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on November 27, 2012.

Masimo's total third quarter revenue, including royalties, rose 14% to $119.1 million, compared to $104.0 million for the third quarter of 2011.  Third quarter 2012 product revenue rose 15% to $112.1 million, compared to $97.6 million for the third quarter of 2011.  The company's worldwide end-user revenue grew 15% in the third quarter of 2012 and represented 85% of product revenue.  OEM sales, which accounted for 15% of product revenue, rose 13% compared to the same period in 2011.  Excluding the impact of Masimo's 2012 acquisitions of PHASEIN AB and Spire Semiconductor, third quarter 2012 product revenue rose 12%.  Revenue from sales of Masimo rainbow products rose 41% to $11.0 million in the third quarter, compared to $7.8 million for the third quarter of 2011.  Third quarter 2012 rainbow revenue included a 92% increase in total hemoglobin (SpHb) sales compared to the third quarter of 2011.     

Net income for the third quarter of 2012 was $13.8 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, compared to net income of $14.8 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2011.  The third quarter 2012 operating results included a $0.02 per share loss attributed to Masimo's 2012 acquisitions of PHASEIN AB and Spire Semiconductor.            

During the third quarter of 2012, the company shipped approximately 33,100 Masimo SET pulse oximetry and Masimo rainbow SET Pulse CO-Oximetry units, excluding handheld units, essentially unchanged from the same prior-year period.  Masimo estimates its worldwide installed base as of September 29, 2012 to be 1,056,000 units, up 11% from 950,000 units as of October 1, 2011.      

Joe Kiani, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Masimo, said, "During the third quarter, we continued to leverage Masimo's innovation leadership and recurring-revenue business model to seize multiple growth opportunities across a range of patient care settings.  Our third quarter product revenue and global installed base growth continued to outpace the industry, and third quarter rainbow product sales were among the highest yet." 

Mr. Kiani continued, "We are happy to announce the Board's decision to declare a special cash dividend, which reflects not only the strength of our financial position and confidence in our long-term outlook, but also demonstrates our commitment to enhance stockholder value.  In addition, by declaring the dividend now, Masimo stockholders can take advantage of current dividend tax rates, which may increase in 2013.  Today's action marks the fourth instance of a special dividend paid by Masimo in the past six years, and the third since we became a public company in 2007.  In fact, including the dividend announced today, since becoming a public company, we have returned approximately $220 million to stockholders in the form of special cash dividends and another $62.5 million in the form of repurchases of our common stock.  This total of $282.5 million represents a return of approximately 88% of the cash generated from operations between 2008 and September 2012."

As of September 29, 2012, Masimo's cash and cash equivalents were $113.0 million, compared to $129.9 million as of December 31, 2011.  The change reflects primarily net cash generated from operations, offset by $37.4 million in cash used to acquire PHASEIN AB and Spire Semiconductor, and $26.3 million in cash used to repurchase shares of Masimo common stock in the first half of 2012.  The payout for the special $1.00 per share cash dividend announced today is expected to be about $57.2 million, based on the current shares outstanding, and will be reflected in the company's fourth quarter and full year 2012 financial statements.  The special dividend payout represents only a portion of the company's cash reserves, which the Board believes is sufficient to cover operational needs, and fund continued research and development investments and strategic initiatives.     

While dividends are not routine for the company, Masimo has previously paid special dividends to shareholders totaling $4.09 per share related to the 2006 intellectual property patent suit settlement agreement with a competitor, $2.00 per share in March 2010 and $0.75 per share in December 2010.  Although there can be no guarantees of future dividends, the Board remains committed to enhancing stockholder value based on its consideration of various factors, including the company's operating results, financial condition and anticipated capital requirements.

About Masimo

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) is the global leader in innovative noninvasive monitoring technologies that significantly improve patient care—helping solve "unsolvable" problems. In 1995, the company debuted Measure-Through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry, known as Masimo SET®, which virtually eliminated false alarms and increased pulse oximetry's ability to detect life-threatening events. More than 100 independent and objective studies have shown that Masimo SET® outperforms other pulse oximetry technologies, even under the most challenging clinical conditions, including patient motion and low peripheral perfusion. In 2005, Masimo introduced rainbow SET® Pulse CO-Oximetry technology, allowing noninvasive and continuous monitoring of blood constituents that previously required invasive procedures, including total hemoglobin (SpHb®), oxygen content (SpOCTM), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO®), methemoglobin (SpMet®), and Pleth Variability Index (PVI®), in addition to SpO2, pulse rate, and perfusion index (PI). In 2008, Masimo introduced Patient SafetyNet™, a remote monitoring and wireless clinician notification system designed to help hospitals avoid preventable deaths and injuries associated with failure to rescue events. In 2009, Masimo introduced rainbow® Acoustic MonitoringTM, the first-ever noninvasive and continuous monitoring of acoustic respiration rate (RRa™).  Masimo's rainbow® SET® technology platform offers a breakthrough in patient safety by helping clinicians detect life-threatening conditions and helping guide treatment options. In 2010, Masimo acquired SEDLine®, a pioneer in the development of innovative brain function monitoring technology and devices. And in 2012, Masimo acquired the assets of Spire Semiconductor, LLC, a maker of advanced light emitting diode (LED) and other advanced component-level technologies; and PHASEIN AB, a developer and manufacturer of ultra-compact mainstream and sidestream capnography, multigas analyzers, and handheld capnometry solutions. Masimo SET® and Masimo rainbow® SET® technologies also can be found in over 100 multiparameter patient monitors from over 50 medical device manufacturers around the world. Founded in 1989, Masimo has the mission of "Improving Patient Outcome and Reducing Cost of Care … by Taking Noninvasive Monitoring to New Sites and Applications®."
