  • Applied Sterilization Technologies sales increased 23% to $216.3 million, primarily due to increased demand from medical device and biopharmaceutical customers.
  • Life Sciences sales increased 15% to $127.9 million, with operating profit increasing from $41.5 million to $52 million.
  • Dental sales reached $105.1 million, slightly below company expectations due to lower patient volumes, supply chain constraints and inflation.

  • Outlook: Steris updated its guidance for FY22, with constant currency organic revenue growth of approximately 11%, versus earlier expectations of 10-11%.
  • Adjusted EPS of $7.85-$7.95, versus prior expectations of $7.60-$7.85, above the consensus of $7.73.
  • Improved outlook reflects growth across the business and higher cost synergies from Cantel acquisition, partially offset by ongoing supply chain challenges, inflation and dilution profits resulting from the disposal of the Renal Care business.
