Hologic posts positive year-end financial results
Hologic reported increased revenues for its fiscal 2007 fourth quarter as well as a sharp upswing in profits for the period.

For the year-end quarter, the Bedford, Mass.-based firm reported revenues of $202,564,000, a 31 percent increase compared to revenues of $154,055,000 in the fourth quarter of 2006.

Hologic booked a net income of $32,110,000, compared with a net loss of $1,473,000 in the same quarter last year. The company attributes the earnings improvement to the increase in product sales of 351 of Selenia, its full-field digital mammography systems in the current quarter as compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006.

The firm reported its mammography/breast care revenues increased by 45 percent to $165,102,000 for the fourth quarter from $114,198,000 for the same period in fiscal 2006, and attributes the growth to increased sales of Selenia together with R2 CAD software.
