Masimo's total fourth quarter revenue, including royalties, rose 8% to $142.4 million, compared to $132.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2012. Fourth quarter 2013 product revenue rose 8% to $134.7 million, compared to $125.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2012. The company's worldwide direct product revenue grew 9% in the fourth quarter of 2013 and represented 86% of product revenue. OEM sales, which accounted for 14% of product revenue, declined by 1% compared to the same period in 2012. Revenue from sales of Masimo rainbow products rose 34% to $14.8 million in the fourth quarter, compared to $11.1 million in the year-ago period. 

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $9.3 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, compared to net income of $15.0 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2012. Net income for the fourth quarter of 2013 included pre-tax charges of $4.6 million related to selected inventory and equipment related write-downs related to accelerated technology transitions and $8.0 million in various charges related to the previously announced arbitration award ruling. Together, these combined charges reduced fourth quarter GAAP earnings per share by $0.15. 

During the fourth quarter of 2013, the company shipped approximately 42,000 SET® pulse oximetry and rainbow® Pulse CO-Oximetry™ units, excluding handheld units, approximately level with the same prior-year period. Masimo estimates its worldwide installed base as of December 28, 2013 to be 1,205,000 units, up 11% from 1,088,000 units as of December 29, 2012. 

Joe Kiani, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Masimo, said, "Masimo achieved many important objectives in 2013, including an 11% increase in our global installed base, increased adoption of pulse oximetry across the U.S. which helps clinicians screen for congenital heart disease in newborns, and the launch of Root™, which includes open architecture monitoring and connectivity features in CE Mark countries. We have begun 2014 with the CE Mark for O3™, our new tissue and cerebral oximetry device, and expect to announce other new products this year. In addition, we are confident that value engineering initiatives that we have put in place since 2012 will begin to result in increased product margin and improved product performance throughout 2014 and beyond."

As of December 28, 2013, Masimo's cash and cash equivalents were $95.5 million, compared to $71.6 million as of December 29, 2012. The change reflects primarily net cash generated from operations, offset by $19.8 million in cash used to repurchase one million shares of Masimo common stock in 2013.

2014 Financial Guidance
Masimo today is providing 2014 financial guidance. Masimo expects fiscal 2014 total revenues to be approximately $578 million to $598 million, including product revenues of $570 million and royalty revenues ranging between $8 million to $28 million. Included in the 2014 product revenue guidance is a rainbow revenue expectation of $60 million. In addition, Masimo expects fiscal 2014 GAAP earnings per share to range between $1.13 and $1.28. Each of the components of Masimo's guidance set forth above is an estimate only and actual performance could differ.

About Masimo
Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) is the global leader in innovative noninvasive monitoring technologies that significantly improve patient care -- helping solve "unsolvable" problems. In 1995, the company debuted Measure-Through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry, known as Masimo SET®, which virtually eliminated false alarms and increased pulse oximetry's ability to detect life-threatening events. More than 100 independent and objective studies have shown that Masimo SET® outperforms other pulse oximetry technologies, even under the most challenging clinical conditions, including patient motion and low peripheral perfusion. In 2005, Masimo introduced rainbow® SET® Pulse CO-Oximetry™ technology, allowing noninvasive and continuous monitoring of blood constituents that previously required invasive procedures, including total hemoglobin (SpHb®), oxygen content (SpOC™), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO®), methemoglobin (SpMet®), and Pleth Variability Index (PVI®), in addition to SpO2, pulse rate, and perfusion index (PI). In 2008, Masimo introduced Patient SafetyNet™, a remote monitoring and wireless clinician notification system designed to help hospitals avoid preventable deaths and injuries associated with failure to rescue events. In 2009, Masimo introduced rainbow® Acoustic Monitoring™, the first-ever noninvasive and continuous monitoring of acoustic respiration rate (RRa™). Masimo's rainbow® SET® technology platform offers a breakthrough in patient safety by helping clinicians detect life-threatening conditions and helping guide treatment options. In 2010, Masimo acquired SEDLine®, a pioneer in the development of innovative brain function monitoring technology and devices. And in 2012, Masimo acquired the assets of Spire Semiconductor, LLC, a maker of advanced light emitting diode (LED) and other advanced component-level technologies; and PHASEIN AB, a developer and manufacturer of ultra-compact mainstream and sidestream capnography, multigas analyzers, and handheld capnometry solutions. Masimo SET® and Masimo rainbow® SET® technologies also can be found in over 100 multiparameter patient monitors from over 50 medical device manufacturers around the world. Founded in 1989, Masimo has the mission of "Improving Patient Outcome and Reducing Cost of Care ... by Taking Noninvasive Monitoring to New Sites and Applications®."
