“With fourth quarter gross order growth of 12% over the last fiscal year, we had a solid finish to our fiscal year. We also generated gross order growth for the full fiscal year from three of our four regions and record fourth quarter sales. At the same time, we increased our year-end cash position due to our improved operating results and paid down debt by approximately $33 million. These improved financial metrics occurred while we increased the investment in our product roadmap, which is expected to result in Accuray bringing to market new imaging software and true motion correction for Radixact as well as CyberKnife enhancements in the near future. Our product portfolio is the strongest it has ever been and the technology innovations associated with our key development programs will position the company for growth going forward,” prez & CEO Joshua Levine said in a press release.
Accuray released guidance for the coming fiscal year 2019, expecting too see revenues up 4% to 8% at between $415 million and $425 million. The company said it expects to post adjusted EBITDA of between $21 million and $27 million.
The company also announced that its CFO Kevin Waters will leave the company, effective October 1, to become the CFO at a company in the Urology market. Current VP of finance and chief accounting officer will take over as interim CFO beyond October 1 as the company searches for a permanent replacement.
