Selling, general and administrative expenses were $115.1 million for the quarter, an increase of 5 percent (a 7 percent increase on a constant currency basis) over the quarter ended March 31, 2013.  SG&A costs were 28.9 percent of revenue in the quarter, compared to 28.6 percent in the quarter ended March 31, 2013.    

Research and development expenses were $29.5 million for the quarter, or 7.4 percent of revenue.  R&D expenses decreased by 5 percent (a 7 percent increase on a constant currency basis) compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2013.  R&D expenses were favorably impacted by the depreciation of the Australian dollar against the U.S. dollar.

ResMed amortized acquired intangibles of $2.5 million ($1.9 million, net of tax) during the quarter.  Stock-based compensation costs incurred during the quarter of $11.2 million ($8.1 million, net of tax) consisted of expenses associated with stock options, restricted stock units, and the company's employee stock purchase plan.  

For the nine months ended March 31, 2014, revenue was $1,139.8 million, an increase of 4 percent over the nine months ended March 31, 2013 (a 3 percent increase on a constant currency basis).  For the nine months, net income was $257.5 million, an increase of 10 percent compared to the nine months ended March 31, 2013.  Diluted earnings per share for the nine months were $1.78 per diluted share, an increase of 11 percent compared to the nine months ended March 31, 2013.

In the third quarter of fiscal year 2014, revenue outside the Americas was $181.6 million, an increase of 8 percent over the prior year's quarter.  In constant currency terms, revenue outside the Americas increased by 6 percent. Revenue in the Americas, at $216.1 million, remained flat compared to the prior year's quarter of $215.2 million. Operating profit for the third quarter grew to $104.7 million, cash flow from operations was $101.1 million, while gross margin was 63.3 percent, all demonstrating robust operating performance. During the quarter, the company also repurchased 1.6 million shares at a cost of $72.5 million, as part of its ongoing capital management program.

"We are pleased with our third quarter results in the face of challenging market conditions, particularly in the U.S.," said ResMed chief executive officer Michael "Mick" Farrell.  "Our Americas business showed encouraging trends and we continue to benefit from our globally diversified business, with constant currency revenue growth of 6 percent in combined Europe and Asia-Pacific businesses for the quarter. In particular, our European results were strong across the board, with most countries showing solid growth."

Highlighting ResMed's new products, Farrell continued, "At the beginning of the third quarter, we launched our new nasal pillows interface, the AirFitP10, in the U.S., and it's been very well received. In addition to its brisk adoption, we received global validation of our innovation and design excellence when the AirFit P10 won the prestigious 2014 Red Dot Product Design award, the world's largest design competition. Sales of the AirFit P10 have just begun in Europe and Asia-Pacific.  Earlier this week, ResMed announced the U.S. launch of two additional new masks to kick-start the fourth quarter of its fiscal year: the AirFit F10, the lightest full-face mask on the market; and the AirFit N10, a new patient-preferred nasal mask. Both masks will be launched soon in other major countries.

"On the flow generator side, we are now in the full product launch phase of our new respiratory care platform in Europe.  The Astral™ is our new generation of life support ventilators. Its competitive advantages are its small size and long battery life, making it an ultra-portable system. It showcases ResMed's growing strength in software design, with patient-friendly set-up and operation. These features allow adult and pediatric patients, who would otherwise be hospitalized, to be safely treated outside the hospital for various chronic diseases. The Astral platform also won a prestigious Red Dot Product Design award, and received positive reaction from patients, providers, and physicians during its controlled product launch in Europe during the third quarter.  We are now ready for full commercial launch of this respiratory care platform in Europe and Asia-Pacific, and our U.S. launch is pending FDA clearance, which we anticipate later this year," Farrell said.

Farrell concluded, "We were also particularly pleased with our bottom-line results this quarter.  Our operating profit, net income, and earnings per share all grew year-over-year at a faster pace than our revenue, with earnings per share up 9 percent.  We expect to continue to take advantage of ongoing growth opportunities in sleep-disordered breathing, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and cardiorespiratory diseases.  Our offerings improve patient outcomes and quality of life, while reducing costs for global healthcare systems."

The ResMed board of directors has today declared a quarterly dividend of $0.25 per share, which will have a record date of May 20, 2014, and be payable on June 17, 2014. The dividend will be paid in U.S. currency to holders of ResMed's common stock trading on the New York Stock Exchange. Holders of Chess Depositary Instruments trading on the Australian Securities Exchange will receive an equivalent amount in Australian currency, based on the exchange rate on the record date, and reflecting the 10:1 ratio between CDIs and NYSE shares.  Because the two exchanges have different settlement and transfer procedures, the ex-dividend periods before the record date will be different for common stock and for CDIs. The ex-dividend date will be May 14, 2014 for CDI holders and May 16, 2014 for common stock holders. As a result of these differences, ResMed has received a waiver from the ASX's settlement operating rules, which will allow ResMed to defer processing conversions between its common stock and CDI registers from May 14, 2014 through May 20, 2014, inclusive.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered.
