Varian's Net Orders Grow 13 Percent in Q109

January 12, 2009 - Varian Medical Systems said it estimates it will report net orders growth of 12-13 percent in the first quarter of fiscal year 2009 over the period last year with gains in all of its major businesses.

Speaking to the financial community at the JP Morgan Healthcare Conference in San Francisco, Tim Guertin, president and CEO of Varian Medical Systems, said that compared to the year-ago quarter, net orders growth will approach 10 to 11 percent in the company's Oncology Systems business, with a 15 to 16 percent increase in the international market and a 6 to 7 percent gain in North America. Compared to the year-ago period, net orders growth is estimated to be about 21 percent in Varian's X-Ray Products business and about 15 percent in its Security and Inspection Products business.

"While there is unprecedented volatility and uncertainty in this economic climate, the solid net orders growth in the first quarter gives us cautious optimism about the prospects for our businesses in 2009," said Guertin.
