Varian Medical Systems, Inc. has been awarded an eight-year tender to supply advanced radiotherapy equipment and software to a network of hospitals in Galicia, in the northwest of Spain. Varian booked the order, worth an estimated €21 million, in its fiscal third quarter. Under the terms of the agreement Varian will supply 10 linear accelerators, including three advanced TrueBeam systems, to five hospitals in the SERGAS network of hospitals in the Galicia region. Varian will also be installing its full suite of treatment planning software and oncology information management systems across the network. Under this investment project, the five public hospitals, Centro Oncologico de Galicia, Hospital Lucus Augusti de Lugo, Complejo Hospitalario Universitario de Santiago, Complejo Hospitalario Universitario de Vigo and Complejo Hospitalario Universitario de Ourense will also be connected within Varian's ARIA network, enabling greater integration and knowledge-sharing between the five departments. This will be the first time the five centers have been connected in this way. In total, Varian will be supplying three TrueBeam systems, six Clinac iX machines, and a Unique system to the five hospitals. Two of the hospitals currently use Varian equipment, while two more are equipped with systems from other suppliers. The fifth center is being upgraded to deliver radiotherapy for the first time.

Varian Medical Systems, Inc. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended June 30, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

Varian Medical Systems, Inc. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the third quarter and nine months ended June 30, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported revenues of $784.0 million against $747.7 million a year ago. Operating earnings were $144.2 million against $142.5 million a year ago. Earnings before taxes was $145.9 million against $143.8 million a year ago. Net earnings attributable to company was $113.5 million against $107.1 million a year ago. Net earnings per diluted share attributable to Varian was $1.13 against $1.02 a year ago. Third quarter net earnings per diluted share rose 11% versus the year-ago period when the company recorded a $0.06 per diluted share charge related to the impairment of a portion of the company's investment in Augmenix. Cash flow from operations was $184 million, significantly higher than net income, due primarily to working capital improvement. For the nine months, revenues of $2,281.3 million against $2,237.7 million a year ago. Operating earnings were $419.7 million against $412 million a year ago. Earnings before taxes was $423.4 million against $414.3 million a year ago. Net earnings attributable to company was $312.8 million against $297.8 million a year ago. Net earnings per diluted share attributable to Varian was $3.10 against $2.81 a year ago. Cash flow from operations was $316 million.

It ended the second quarter with earnings guidance for fiscal 2015 in the range of $4.02 to $4.14 per diluted share. As of the end of the third quarter, with the approximately $0.22 per diluted share for the booking of the Maryland proton therapy system partially offset by ongoing challenges in Imaging Components business, the company now believe that its earnings for fiscal 2015 could be in the range of $4.20 to $4.25 per diluted share. Non-GAAP earnings for fiscal year 2015 should be higher than the GAAP range by approximately $0.16 per diluted share, comprised of restructuring charges in the first half of fiscal year 2015, acquisition related costs, and amortization of acquisition related intangibles. Given the ongoing geographic mix shift, the profits to outside North America and the German tax loss carry forward, it now believe the tax rate for the full fiscal year will be about 27%.
