GAAP operating income and GAAP operating margin were equal to non-GAAP operating income* and non-GAAP operating margin* for the quarter and the same period of the prior fiscal year, as there were no non-GAAP adjustments in the respective periods.
  • Non-GAAP net income* increased 2% to $47.2 million, or $1.03 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income* of $46.1 million, or $1.01 per diluted share during the same period of the prior fiscal year.

  • On August 18, the company announced that the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted breakthrough device designation to Abiomed’s Impella ECP expandable percutaneous heart pump. The designation means the FDA will prioritize Impella ECP’s regulatory review processes including design iterations, clinical study protocols and pre-market approval (PMA) application.

“In Q2, we made progress on product innovation and regulatory milestones while leveraging our commercial field team and Abiomed 2.0 Playbook in a challenging environment,” said Michael R. Minogue, Abiomed’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Abiomed remains focused on disciplined execution and sustainable growth as we continue to pursue our goal of becoming the global standard of care for heart pumps that recover hearts and save lives.”

FISCAL YEAR 2022 OUTLOOK

Abiomed started the fiscal year with a range of $990 million to $1,030 million with growth of 17% - 22% versus prior year. After a strong Q1 and a solid July, the company upgraded guidance to $1,030 million to $1,050 million with growth of 22% - 24%. Given the Delta resurgence and the U.S. hospital labor shortages, the company is updating its fiscal year 2022 revenue guidance and expects revenue to be in the range of $1,010 million to $1,030 million, an increase of 19% to 22%, respectively compared to fiscal year 2021, slightly above the original fiscal year 2022 guidance. The company expects its fiscal year 2022 non-GAAP operating margin* to be in the range of 24% - 25%.

*ABOUT NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

To supplement its condensed consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”), the company uses non-GAAP financial measures as described below. The company uses these non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision-making and to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. The company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance and liquidity. The company believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing its performance and when planning, forecasting, and analyzing future periods. The company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because (1) they allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision-making and (2) they are used by institutional investors and the analyst community to help them analyze the performance of the company’s business.

The company uses the following non-GAAP financial measures:

Non-GAAP operating income: The company defines non-GAAP operating income as operating income, excluding the charge for the acquired in-process research and development related to the preCARDIA acquisition.

Non-GAAP operating margin: The company defines non-GAAP operating margin as operating margin, excluding the charge for the acquired in-process research and development related to the preCARDIA acquisition.

Non-GAAP net income and net income per diluted share: The company defines non-GAAP net income and net income per diluted share as net income and net income per diluted share, excluding the charge for the acquired in-process research and development related to the preCARDIA acquisition, the gain recognized on its previously owned minority interest in preCARDIA, the unrealized gain on investment in Shockwave Medical and excess tax benefits associated with stock-based compensation. The company defines non-GAAP EPS as non-GAAP net income divided by non-GAAP diluted shares, which are calculated as GAAP weighted average outstanding shares plus dilutive potential shares outstanding during the period.

Refer to the “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures” section of this press release.

The company reports non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles, differ from GAAP measures with the same names, and may differ from non-GAAP financial measures with the same or similar names that are used by other companies. The company believes it is useful to exclude certain items because such amounts in any specific period may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of its business operations or can vary significantly between periods. The company believes that non-GAAP financial measures should only be used to evaluate our results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP financial measures. The company encourages investors to carefully consider its results under GAAP, as well as its supplemental non-GAAP information and the reconciliations between these presentations, to more fully understand its business.

Notes:

 

(1) In May 2021, the company acquired the remaining interest in preCARDIA for $82.8 million. The company determined that substantially all of the fair value of the acquisition related to the acquired in-process research and development asset, which resulted in accounting for the transaction as an asset acquisition. The fair value of the acquired in-process research and development asset of $115.5 million is primarily comprised of the net consideration paid for the acquired remaining interest of $82.8 million and our previously owned minority interest in preCARDIA of $32.4 million. Since the acquired technology platform is pre-commercial and has not reached technical feasibility as defined by the accounting rules, the cost of the in-process research and development asset was expensed, resulting in a charge of $115.5 million for the six months ended September 30, 2021.

 

(2) The company recognized a gain of $21 million related to its previously owned minority interest in preCARDIA as described in note (1) above, within the condensed consolidated statement of operations for the six months ended September 30, 2021.

 

(3) Amount represents the impact of excess tax benefits associated with stock-based compensation in each respective period presented. The company recognized excess tax benefits associated with stock-based compensation of $6.2 million and $7.9 million as an income tax benefit for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The company recognized excess tax benefits associated with stock-based compensation of $9.8 million and $8.5 million as an income tax benefit for the six months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

 

(4) Amount represents the unrealized gain on investment in Shockwave Medical in each respective period presented. The company recognized an unrealized gain on investment in Shockwave Medical of $4.8 million ($3.6 million, net of tax benefit) and $10.8 million ($8.2 million, net of tax benefit) within other income for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The company recognized an unrealized gain on investment in Shockwave Medical of $22.4 million ($16.9 million, net of tax benefit) and $32.3 million ($26.1 million, net of tax benefit) within other income for the six months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively.
