Revenues in the most recent quarter totaled $155 million, up from $150 million in the year-earlier quarter.

The results are the first since Varex became a new public company following the spin-off from Varian Medical Systems Inc. on Jan. 28.

Varex Imaging Corp. designs and manufactures X-ray imaging components. It has about 1,800 employees in North America, Europe and Asia.

“I am pleased to report top-line growth of 3 percent for the current quarter and 5 percent year to date,” Sunny Sanyal, chief executive officer, said in announcing the results. “Since the slowdown in our revenues in the second half of 2015 and the first half of 2016, all of our product lines have experienced good recovery and the trailing 12-month revenue growth rate was 7 percent. … We have successfully completed the separation from Varian and are well prepared to operate as a stand-alone company.”

“We grew in all of our primary product categories and across all major markets, which was a key goal and a significant accomplishment in the current environment. This broad-based growth was made possible by our ability to better satisfy demand, which is a credit to the improvements we have made in our supply chain for 2017. We also began to make incremental investments back into the brand via enhanced R&D resources, while also furthering the development of our e-commerce platform.”

“Our Medici business cost us $8 million pre-tax in the first quarter, which included a $4.5 million impairment charge related to our investment in Peernova. However, I remain confident that we are doing the right thing for our shareholders by having Medici pursue a position of global leadership in blockchain technology.”
