Henry Schein, Planet Payment top big earnings week

Schein-ing performance: Henry Schein CEO Stanley Bergman this week announced another stellar quarter for the Melville manufacturer.

Headquarters: Stony Brook
Industry: Biotechnology
Nasdaq: APDN

Reporting Date: Aug. 10, 2017
Reporting Quarter: 3Q FY2017
Quarter Ended: June 30, 2017

Numbers: Total revenues $1.8 million, up 175 percent from the $653,000 reported for 3Q FY2016. Net loss $2.6 million (10 cents per share), down from $3.4 million (14 cents) year-over-year. Adjusted EBITDA negative $1.5 million, compared to adjusted EBITDA of negative $2.5 million same quarter last year.

Notes and Quotes: A seemingly lackluster quarter actually continues the momentum for the provider of DNA-focused authentication and anti-counterfeiting technologies, which continues to diversify its global customer base. Worth noting: The revenue spike, including a 99 percent increase over revenues reported in 2Q FY2017 (ended March 31), was attributed primarily to the company’s textiles vertical, long predicted by company exes to be Applied DNA’s golden goose. “In textiles, we see evidence that our technology platform is gaining momentum,” noted CEO James Hayward. – GZ


Headquarters: Long Beach
Industry: Human resources
Nasdaq: PLPM

Reporting Date: Aug. 9, 2017
Reporting Quarter: 2Q FY2017
Quarter Ended: June 30, 2017

Notes and Quotes: A mixed but largely positive report for the Long Beach provider of international payment, transaction-processing and currency-processing services, which also lowered its net revenue outlook for the year (from as high as $61.5 million to as high as $59 million) but reaffirmed prior guidance on income, adjusted EBITDA and earnings. “Our momentum demonstrates the continued underlying market demand for our multi-currency solutions and the ability of Planet Payment to deliver superior processing solutions to acquirers on a worldwide basis,” noted Chairman and CEO Carl Williams. – GZ

Notes and Quotes: After a punishing first quarter, positive steps as the point-of-care diagnostics specialist continues what acting CEO Sharon Klugewicz called Chembio’s “transition strategy,” focused on three key areas: strengthening its core sexually transmitted disease segment, expanding its tropical and fever-disease portfolio and building a global commercial team. – GZ
