SALT LAKE CITY, January 31, 2023 – Varex Imaging Corporation (Nasdaq: VREX) today announced its unaudited financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2023.

Varex Imaging Quarterly Reports

1QFY23 Summary

  • Revenues $206 million
  • GAAP gross margin 31% | Non-GAAP gross margin* 32%
  • GAAP operating expense $50 million | Non-GAAP operating expense* $47 million
  • GAAP operating margin 6% | Non-GAAP operating margin* 9%
  • GAAP net earnings $0.08 per diluted share | Non-GAAP net earnings* $0.21 per diluted share

“Global demand for our products was in line with our expectations, resulting in revenue of $206 million in the first quarter,” said Sunny Sanyal, Chief Executive Officer of Varex. Sanyal added, “However, we are beginning to see some cautiousness from our customers as they assess an uncertain economic environment.”

Varex’s revenue of $206 million was down 11% sequentially and up 3% year-over-year. Medical segment revenue of $160 million was down 12% sequentially and up 3% year-over-year. Industrial segment revenue of $46 million was down 9% sequentially and up 5% year-over-year. Non-GAAP gross margin was 32% in the quarter compared to 33% in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2022 and non-GAAP EPS declined to $0.21 from $0.42 last quarter.

Balance Sheet & Cash Flow

Cash flow from operations was a use of $4 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2023, due to higher inventory levels and annual employee incentive payments, as is typical in the first quarter of the fiscal year. Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities declined $5 million sequentially to $108 million at the end of the first quarter.


The following guidance is provided for the second quarter of fiscal year 2023:

  • Revenues are expected to be between $205 million and $225 million
  • Non-GAAP net earnings per diluted share is expected to be between $0.05 and $0.25

Guidance for the company’s net earnings per diluted share is provided on a non-GAAP basis only. This non-GAAP financial measure is forward-looking, and the company is unable to provide a meaningful or accurate GAAP forecast of net earnings per diluted share without unreasonable effort due to the uncertainty of amounts and timing of unusual items.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
