(1)

Non-GAAP net earnings and Non-GAAP net earnings per diluted share are defined as GAAP net earnings and GAAP net earnings per diluted share adjusted to exclude the amortization of intangible assets and inventory step-up, acquisition-related expenses and in-process research and development, impairment charges, significant litigation charges or benefits and legal costs, gains and losses on equity investments, and significant non-recurring tax expense or benefit.

The company ended the quarter with $531 million in cash and cash equivalents and $412 million in debt.  Net cash provided by operating activities was $118 million, up 9%.  Cash Flows from operations were $372 million for the fiscal year, down 18% due to higher working capital to support product transition and growth.  During the quarter, the company invested $32 million to repurchase 279,000 shares of common stock.

Oncology Systems Segment

Continued leadership in innovation and market execution drove strong worldwide growth in 2019.  Oncology revenues totaled $820 million for the fourth quarter, up 8%, and $3.1 billion for the full year, up 11%.  Operating earnings for the segment increased 3% for the quarter and were flat for the full year.

Gross orders for the fourth quarter were $1.1 billion, up 7%, and $3.4 billion for the full year, up 9%.  Gross orders in the Americas were up 11% for the fourth quarter.  In EMEA, gross orders in the quarter rose 10%, driven in part by orders for 13 TrueBeam systems as a part of the Tata Trusts framework agreement.  In APAC, gross orders decreased 9% with a challenging quarter in Japan that was partially offset by growth in China and South East Asia and Korea.

Proton Solutions Segment

Proton Solutions revenues totaled $42 million for the fourth quarter, down 9%, and $144 million for the full year, down 3%.  We took one new order at Ohio State University in the fourth quarter for a total of four proton orders in the full year.

Other Segment

Revenues for our Other segment were $17 million in the fourth quarter.  The Other segment is comprised of our interventional oncology business, including cryoablation, embolic microspheres, and microwave ablation, as well as our cardiac radioablation assets.

Tariff Exclusion

The company received two tariff exclusions in the fourth quarter.  The exclusions had a $21 million benefit to revenues, a $4 million benefit to cost of revenues and triggered a $2 million expense due to receiving the exclusion in China.  The net benefit to operating earnings was $23 million, or $0.19 on a Non-GAAP earnings per share basis.  The net benefit was mostly offset by an increase in tax rate driven by updates to the estimated impact of the Global Intangible Low Tax Income (GILTI) and Base Erosion and Anti-Abuse Tax (BEAT) provisions of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and expenses related to annual discretionary contributions to US-based foundations that independently fund research and training.  Additionally, operational spend in our core businesses came in above expectations although this higher spend was partially offset by early momentum in our recent acquisitions.

Incrementally, the company did not record approximately $11 million of potential tariff refund in the fourth quarter due to timing of recognition.  We expect to recognize this benefit in fiscal year 2020.

Guidance for Full Fiscal Year 2020

Our guidance continues to consider the projected market growth and momentum of our products and solutions in the market. 

Our fiscal year 2020 guidance considers the recently announced tariff exclusions from both China and the United States Trade Representative.  Expecting to continue our strong operational performance, the company plans to invest in our growth initiatives including: driving core business growth in China, fueling growth of our recent acquisitions by building out global sales and distribution capacity, and touching more patients by ramping research and development investments in technology-enabled services, FLASH technology, our Noona patient reported outcome offering, and cloud-based software.  Continuing to invest in meaningful innovation, go-to-market capabilities, and scalable infrastructure is aligned with our commitment to drive long-term growth for shareholders.

After careful consideration of these assumptions, we expect the following for fiscal year 2020:

These values are presented on a non-GAAP basis.  We have not provided a reconciliation of non-GAAP guidance measures to the corresponding GAAP measures on a forward-looking basis due to potential significant variability and limited visibility of the excluded items.

The guidance assumes a Non-GAAP effective tax rate of 22.5% to 23.5% and a weighted average diluted share count of 92 million.  The guidance also assumes currency rates as of the beginning of fiscal year 2020, includes acquisitions announced to date, and includes the expected impact of all currently enacted tariffs.

Varian Appoints New President of Interventional Oncology; New Chief Financial Officer

Effective Dec. 1, 2019, Gary E. Bischoping, Jr., currently senior vice president, Finance & chief finance officer, will take on a new role as president, Interventional Oncology Solutions.  J. Michael Bruff, currently senior vice president, Finance and Investor Relations, will succeed Bischoping as senior vice president, Finance & chief finance officer.  Both executives will report directly to Dow Wilson, Varian CEO.

Earlier this year, we combined the recently acquired businesses of Endocare, Alicon and the microsphere and bland embolic bead assets from Boston Scientific to create our Interventional Oncology Solutions business under the Chief Growth Office, reporting to Kolleen Kennedy, president, Proton Solutions and chief growth officer.  Based on the success of the integration and the robust early performance by our Interventional Oncology Solutions business, it is the right time to move this new business from the incubation stage under the Chief Growth Office, and it will now report directly to Bischoping in his new role as president of Interventional Oncology Solutions.  Kennedy will continue in her role as president, Proton Solutions and chief growth officer, in which capacity she will focus on incubating emerging technologies, including FLASH therapy and cardiac radioablation, as well as leading our acquisition integration office.

"These moves will optimally position Varian for continued growth and are the result of our strong succession planning process," said Wilson.  "During his tenure as CFO, Gary reset resource and capital allocation to invest in organic and inorganic opportunities focused on driving long-term growth and value creation.  In addition, he led a successful initiative to build and strengthen the broader CFO organization's capabilities.  Gary will leverage his keen business expertise to further build Varian's Interventional Oncology Solutions' go-to-market organization, product portfolio and business management system to take advantage of the exciting opportunities we see in the interventional oncology space."

Mike Bruff joined Varian two years ago with extensive finance, accounting and operational experience.  Since then, he has built a robust investor relations strategy and enhanced the company's financial planning and business partnership functions.  Prior to joining Varian, Bruff held a series of senior international and domestic roles, including business segment CFO, and roles in financial planning, accounting and internal audit at Dell Technologies.  He also held leadership positions in corporate reporting at MCI Telecommunications and served as vice president, Services Accounting and Finance at CA, Inc.  Bruff began his career in accounting and auditing at Deloitte and Touche in Washington, D.C. 

"Mike understands the Varian processes and strategy, and he has the right background and experience to help navigate Varian through the next growth stages," said Wilson.  "As Varian continues to evolve and grow, our deep bench of leadership capabilities across the organization will help propel our business to success in the near- and long-term."

Unless otherwise stated in this release, all growth rates are year-over-year, any references to orders are gross orders, and all periods referred to are fiscal periods.  Please refer to "Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for a description of items excluded from expected non-GAAP earnings.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes the following non-GAAP financial measures derived from our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings: non-GAAP operating earnings, non-GAAP net earnings and non-GAAP net earnings per diluted share. We define non-GAAP operating earnings as operating earnings excluding amortization of intangible assets and inventory step-up, acquisition-related expenses or benefits and in-process research and development, impairment charges, and significant litigation charges and legal costs. These measures are not presented in accordance with, nor are they a substitute for U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. In addition, these measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies, limiting their usefulness for comparison purposes. The non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool. We have provided a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure used in this earnings release to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. We have not provided a reconciliation of non-GAAP guidance measures to the corresponding GAAP measures on a forward-looking basis due to the potential significant variability and limited visibility of the excluded items discussed below.

We utilize a number of different financial measures, both GAAP and non-GAAP, in analyzing and assessing the overall performance of our business, in making operating decisions, forecasting and planning for future periods, and determining payments under compensation programs. We consider the use of the non-GAAP measures to be helpful in assessing the performance of the ongoing operation of our business. We believe that disclosing non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplemental data that, while not a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, allows for greater transparency in the review of our financial and operational performance. We also believe that disclosing non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results and future prospects in the same manner as management and in comparing financial results across accounting periods and to those of peer companies. Non-GAAP operating earnings and non-GAAP net earnings exclude the following items, except for gain and losses on equity investments, and significant non-recurring tax expense or benefit, which are only excluded from non-GAAP net earnings:

Amortization of intangible assets and amortization of inventory step-up: We do not acquire businesses and assets on a predictable cycle. The amount of purchase price allocated to intangible assets, the step-up of inventory values, and the term of amortization can vary significantly and are unique to each acquisition or purchase. We believe that excluding amortization of intangible assets and amortization of inventory step-up allows the users of our financial statements to better review and understand the historic and current results of our operations, and also facilitates comparisons to peer companies.

Acquisition and integration-related expenses  and in-process research and development: We incur expenses or benefits with respect to certain items associated with our acquisitions, such as transaction costs, hedging gains and losses, changes in the fair value of contingent consideration liabilities, gain or expense on settlement of pre-existing relationships, integration costs, breakup fees, write-off of in-process research and development, etc. We exclude such expenses or benefits as they are related to acquisitions and have no direct correlation to the operation of our on-going business.

Impairment chargesWe incur impairment charges that result from events, which arise from unforeseen circumstances and/or often occur outside of the ordinary course of our on-going business. Although these events are reflected in our GAAP financials, these unique transactions may limit the comparability of our on-going operations with prior and future periods.

Significant litigation charges or benefits and legal costs: We may incur charges or benefits as well as legal costs from time to time related to litigation and other contingencies. We exclude these charges or benefits, when significant, as well as legal costs associated with significant legal matters, because we do not believe they are reflective of on-going business and operating results.

Gains and losses on equity investments: We may incur gains and losses from the sale of our equity investments in privately-held companies. We do not trade equity investments, and we do not plan on these investments for funding of ongoing operations. We exclude such gains and losses because we do not believe they are reflective of our core business.

Significant non-recurring tax expense or benefit: We may incur significant tax expense or benefit as a result of tax legislation and/or a change in judgment about the need for a valuation allowance that are generally unrelated to the level of business activity in the period in which these tax effects are reported. We exclude such expenses or benefits from our non-GAAP net earnings because we believe they do not accurately reflect the underlying performance of our continuing business operations.

We apply our GAAP consolidated effective tax rate to our non-GAAP financial measures, other than when the underlying item has a materially different tax treatment.

The following table reconciles GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures:
