SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 16, 2015

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today reported revenue of $1.04 billion, down 1 percent year over year (up 6 percent on a core basis(3)) for the fourth fiscal quarter ended Oct. 31, 2015.

Fourth-quarter GAAP income from continuing operations was $140 million, or $0.42 per share. Last year's fourth-quarter GAAP loss from continuing operations was $26 million, or a loss of $0.08 per share.

During the fourth quarter, Agilent had intangible amortization of $37 million, transformation costs of $15 million, acquisition and integration costs of $7 million, asset impairments of $3 million, and a tax benefit of $39 million. Excluding these items, and $5 million of other costs, Agilent reported fourth-quarter adjusted income from continuing operations of $168 million, $0.50 per share(1).

"Agilent delivered a strong quarter to end a strong year," said Mike McMullen, Agilent president and CEO. "Our fourth-quarter revenue was up 6 percent on a core basis(3), and earnings per share were above our guidance range."

"Our adjusted operating margin was 21.9(4) percent, up 150 basis points over a year ago," he added. "This marks the third consecutive quarter of significant year-over-year margin improvements."

Fourth-quarter revenue of $515 million from Agilent's Life Sciences and Applied Markets Group (LSAG) declined 4 percent year over year (up 2 percent on a core basis(3)). Strong performance in pharma was offset by softness in the industrial market and in the academia and government market. LSAG's Q4 operating margin was 20.0 percent.

Fourth-quarter revenue of $342 million from the Agilent CrossLab Group (ACG) grew 3 percent year over year (up 11 percent on a core basis(3)). Both services and consumables experienced strong growth across all geographies. ACG's operating margin was 25.1 percent in the quarter.

Fourth-quarter revenue of $178 million from Agilent's Diagnostics and Genomics Group (DGG) increased 4 percent year over year (up 10 percent on a core basis(3)), reflecting continued strength across all of its businesses. DGG's operating margin for the quarter was 19.2 percent.

Agilent expects first-quarter 2016 revenue in the range of $1.0 billion to $1.02 billion. First-quarter non-GAAP earnings are expected to be in the range of $0.42 to $0.44 per share(2).

For fiscal year 2016, Agilent expects revenue of $4.15 billion to $4.17 billion and non-GAAP earnings of $1.85 to $1.91 per share(2). The guidance is based on Oct. 30, 2015, exchange rates.

Agilent announced on Sept. 2 that it would no longer report or comment on orders or book-to-bill.

(1) Non-GAAP income from continuing operations and non-GAAP income from continuing operations per share exclude primarily the impacts of acquisition and integration costs, pre-separation costs, transformation initiatives and restructuring costs, business exit and divestiture costs, and non-cash intangibles amortization. We also exclude any tax benefits that are not directly related to ongoing operations and which are either isolated or cannot be expected to occur again with any regularity or predictability. A reconciliation between non-GAAP net income and GAAP net income is set forth on page 6 of the attached tables along with additional information regarding the use of this non-GAAP measure.

(2) Non-GAAP earnings per share as projected for Q1 FY16 and full fiscal year 2016 excludes primarily the future impact of acquisition and integration costs, restructuring costs, asset impairment charges, business exit and divestiture costs and non-cash intangibles amortization. We also exclude any tax benefits that are not directly related to ongoing operations and which are either isolated or cannot be expected to occur again with any regularity or predictability. Most of these excluded amounts pertain to events that have not yet occurred and are not currently possible to estimate with a reasonable degree of accuracy. Therefore, no reconciliation to GAAP amounts has been provided. Future amortization of intangibles is expected to be approximately $37 million per quarter.

(3) Core revenue excludes the impact of currency, the NMR business and acquisitions and divestitures within the past 12 months. Core revenue is a non-GAAP measure. A reconciliation between GAAP revenue and core revenue is set forth on page 8 of the attached tables along with additional information regarding the use of this non-GAAP measure.

(4) Adjusted operating margin is a non-GAAP measure and excludes primarily the impacts of acquisition and integration costs, transformation initiatives and restructuring costs, business exit and divestiture costs, and non-cash intangibles amortization in addition to the costs related to services Agilent is providing to Keysight post separation. A reconciliation is set forth on page 9 of the attached tables along with additional information regarding the use of this non-GAAP measure.

(a) The adjustment for taxes excludes tax benefits that management believes are not directly related to ongoing operations and which are either isolated or cannot be expected to occur again with any regularity or predictability. For the three months and years ended October 31, 2015 and 2014 , management uses a non-GAAP effective tax rate of 20% and 16%, respectively, that we believe to be indicative of on-going operations.
 
Historical amounts are reclassified to conform with current presentation.
 
We provide non-GAAP income from continuing operations and non-GAAP income from continuing operations per share amounts in order to provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our operational performance and our prospects for the future. These supplemental measures exclude, among other things, charges related to the amortization of intangibles, the impact of restructuring charges, transformational initiatives, acquisition and integration costs, business exit and divestiture and pre-separation costs.
 

Restructuring costs include incremental expenses associated with publicly announced major restructuring programs, usually aimed at material changes in business and/or cost structure. Such costs may include one-time termination benefits, asset impairments, facility-related costs and contract termination fees.

Asset impairments and write-downs include assets that have been written-down to their fair value.
Business exit and divestiture costs include costs associated with the exit of the NMR business and the divestiture of the XRD business.
Transformational initiatives include expenses associated with targeted cost reduction activities such as manufacturing transfers, small site consolidations, reorganizations, insourcing or outsourcing of activities. Such costs may include move and relocation costs, one-time termination benefits and other one-time reorganization costs. Included in this category are also expenses associated with the post-separation resizing of the IT infrastructure and streamlining of IT systems as well as the expenses incurred to effect the Agile Agilent reengineering.
Acquisition and Integration costs include all incremental expenses incurred to effect a business combination. Such acquisition costs may include advisory, legal, accounting, valuation, and other professional or consulting fees. Such integration costs may include expenses directly related to integration of business and facility operations, information technology systems and infrastructure and other employee-related costs.
Pre-separation costs include Agilent-specific incremental expenses incurred in order to effect the separation, through November 1, 2014 distribution date.
Net loss on extinguishment of debt relates to the early redemption of some of our senior notes.
 
Our management uses non-GAAP measures to evaluate the performance of our core businesses, to estimate future core performance and to compensate employees. Since management finds this measure to be useful, we believe that our investors benefit from seeing our results “through the eyes” of management in addition to seeing our GAAP results. This information facilitates our management’s internal comparisons to our historical operating results as well as to the operating results of our competitors.
 
Our management recognizes that items such as amortization of intangibles and restructuring charges can have a material impact on our cash flows and/or our net income. Our GAAP financial statements including our statement of cash flows portray those effects. Although we believe it is useful for investors to see core performance free of special items, investors should understand that the excluded items are actual expenses that may impact the cash available to us for other uses. To gain a complete picture of all effects on the company’s profit and loss from any and all events, management does (and investors should) rely upon the GAAP income statement. The non-GAAP numbers focus instead upon the core business of the company, which is only a subset, albeit a critical one, of the company’s performance.
 
Readers are reminded that non-GAAP numbers are merely a supplement to, and not a replacement for, GAAP financial measures. They should be read in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures. It should be noted as well that our non-GAAP information may be different from the non-GAAP information provided by other companies.
 
The preliminary non-GAAP net income and diluted EPS reconciliation is estimated based on our current information.

(a) Post separation, Agilent is providing Keysight Technologies, Inc. certain IT and site services. These IT and site services are included in our operating expenses. The amounts billed to Keysight for these services are recorded in other income.
 
We provide non-GAAP income from operations in order to provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our operational performance and our prospects for the future. These supplemental measures exclude, among other things, charges related to the amortization of intangibles, transformational initiatives, acquisition and integration costs and business exit and divestiture costs.
 
Our management recognizes that items such as amortization of intangibles can have a material impact on our cash flows and/or our net income. Our GAAP financial statements including our statement of cash flows portray those effects. Although we believe it is useful for investors to see core performance free of special items, investors should understand that the excluded items are actual expenses that may impact the cash available to us for other uses. To gain a complete picture of all effects on the company’s profit and loss from any and all events, management does (and investors should) rely upon the GAAP income statement. The non-GAAP numbers focus instead upon the core business of the company, which is only a subset, albeit a critical one, of the company’s performance.
 
Readers are reminded that non-GAAP numbers are merely a supplement to, and not a replacement for, GAAP financial measures. They should be read in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures. It should be noted as well that our non-GAAP information may be different from the non-GAAP information provided by other companies.
 
The preliminary reconciliation of income from operations and operating margins is estimated based on our current information.
