Haemonetics (HAE) expects its transfusion management business to grow at a compound annual growth rate (or CAGR) in the low to mid teens. Haemonetics has planned to opt for a key account strategy. The company aims to strengthen its worldwide presence by expanding its global sales team and partnering with other software vendors and players in this segment, like Helmer.
Haemonetics (HAE) is focused on initiating the commercial launch of its innovative NexSys PCS device coupled with its embedded firmware, NexLynk DMS, in 2H18. Although the combination of the NexSys PCS device and the NexLynk software is designed to result in a completely integrated and optimal bidirectional system, NexSys PCS supports an open architecture and can work with any other donor management software (or DMS). NexLynk software, however, has been designed to work optimally with NexSys PCS, and it thus eliminates the need for the translation of data between the device and the software.
In fiscal 2017, Haemonetics (HAE) earned almost 46% of its total revenue from its plasma franchise. The company has earned ~48.4% of its total revenue from its plasma franchise YTD (year-to-date) in fiscal 2018. Approximately 91% of the plasma segment’s total revenue in fiscal 2017 was attributable to the sale of disposables.
In fiscal 3Q18, Haemonetics (HAE) reported revenue of close to $113.1 million, a YoY (year-over-year) rise of ~4.1%. Haemonetics has earned revenue of nearly $324.4 million from the sale of its products in the plasma franchise YTD (year-to-date) in fiscal 2018, which reflects a YoY rise of ~4.7%. The franchise has reported organic revenue growth of close to 6% YTD in fiscal 2018, and it’s expected to continue witnessing robust growth owing to solid demand for drugs based on human plasma.
On its fiscal 3Q18 earnings conference call, Haemonetics (HAE) increased the guidance for its fiscal 2018 adjusted EPS (earnings per share) by ~$0.12 to the range $1.80–$1.90. Haemonetics has calculated this EPS guidance by assuming a positive impact from its overperformance in fiscal 3Q18 and a negative impact from its anticipated investments in fiscal 4Q18. Excluding the impact of its restructuring and turnaround expenses, the company expects $125 million worth of free cash flow in fiscal 2018.
Haemonetics (HAE) expects to report fiscal 2018 revenue in line with what it witnessed in fiscal 2017. The company also expects to witness 6% YoY revenue growth in its hospital business, lower than its previously projected revenue growth rate range of 7%–10%. Haemonetics, however, expects its blood center business to report a 7% YoY fall in fiscal 2018 revenue, which is at the lower end of its expectation of a fall of 7%–10%.
ConMed (CNMD) expects to witness the positive impact of around 0.5–1.0 percentage points on its fiscal 2018 adjusted gross margin, attributable to various cost-saving initiatives. ConMed has also projected an improvement of ~0.2–0.5 percentage points in its ratio of SG&A (selling, general, and administrative) expenses to total sales for fiscal 2018 on a YoY (year-over-year) basis. ConMed also expects its 2018 R&D (research and development)-to-sales ratio to be at the higher end of the projected range of 4.5%–5%.
ConMed (CNMD) expects to report revenue growth in the range of 5%–6.5% on a reported basis and in the range of 4.0%–5.0% on a CC (constant currency) basis for fiscal 2018. The company has projected a favorable top-line impact of 100–150 basis points, resulting from foreign exchange movements for fiscal 2018. In 2017, ConMed reported a ~4.3% YoY (year-over-year) rise in revenues on a CC basis, which would be in line with the average revenue growth in the medical technology industry.
