Integra LifeSciences Reports Third Quarter 2015 Financial Results

Revenue Increased 14.6% to $226.4 Million with Adjusted EPS of $0.75

Adjusted Net Income Increased 15.1%

Raised Low End of Full Year 2015 Revenue and EPS Guidance

PLAINSBORO, N.J., Nov. 03, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation (Nasdaq:IART) today reported its financial results for the third quarter ending September 30, 2015.

Highlights: 

  • Third quarter revenue increased 14.6% over the prior year quarter to $226.4 million and organic revenue increased 7.2%; 

  • Adjusted net income increased 15.1% over the prior year quarter to $27.0 million; 
  • Adjusted free cash flow conversion for the first nine months of 2015 was 80.4% versus 22.6% in the nine months ending September 30, 2014;
  • FOUNDER Study results were published online on August 25, 2015 and show an increased rate of complete wound closure in chronic Diabetic Foot Ulcer patients; 
  • Successfully raised $230 million in a public offering of common stock and completed an expansion of the credit facility from $900 million to $1.1 billion in August 2015; 
  • Recently completed several strategic transactions including the spin-off of SeaSpine and the acquisitions of TEI and the Salto Talaris(R); 
  • Raised low-end of guidance range for full-year 2015 sales, organic sales and adjusted earnings per share.

Total revenues for the third quarter were $226.4 million, reflecting an increase of $28.8 million, or 14.6%, over the third quarter of 2014.

Excluding the contribution of revenues from acquisitions, discontinued products and the effect of currency exchange rates, revenues increased 7.2% over the third quarter of 2014.

“Revenues from our dural repair, upper extremities and regenerative tissue businesses helped drive organic growth over 7% in the third quarter,” said Peter Arduini, Integra’s President and Chief Executive Officer.  “The team accomplished a number of critical milestones including two key acquisitions, the spin-off of SeaSpine and an equity offering, all of which set up the company for the next phase of growth.”

Associated with the SeaSpine separation on July 1, 2015, the Company recorded a one-time, non-cash tax charge of $35.6 million or $1.00 per share to establish a valuation allowance for certain deferred tax assets in the third quarter.  The Company reported GAAP net loss of $(31.9) million, or $(0.90) per share, for the third quarter of 2015, compared to GAAP net income from continuing operations of $9.0 million or $0.27 per share, for the third quarter of 2014.

Adjusted measures discussed below are computed with the adjustments to GAAP reporting set forth in the attached reconciliation.

Adjusted net income for the third quarter of 2015 was $27.0 million, or $0.75 per share, compared to adjusted net income of $23.4 million, or $0.71 per share, in the third quarter of 2014. 

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2015 was $47.7 million, or 21.1% of revenue, compared to $44.8 million, or 22.7% of revenue, in the prior year third quarter.

Adjusted free cash flow conversion for the first nine months of 2015 was 80.4% versus 22.6% in the prior-year period.

Outlook for 2015

Based upon the third quarter results, the Company is raising the low end of its previously provided full-year 2015 guidance for continuing operations.  The Company now expects revenue of $878 million to $885 million, up from prior guidance of $870 million to $885 million, organic revenue growth of 6% to 7%, up from prior guidance of 6.0%, and adjusted EPS of $3.05 to $3.10, up from prior guidance of 3.00 to $3.10.  This guidance also includes an immaterial contribution from the assets acquired from Tornier, completed in October.  The Company’s GAAP EPS guidance from continuing operations is now $0.20 to $0.25. 

“We are pleased with the consistent financial performance and execution against our plans through the first nine months of the year.  TEI and the Salto Talaris(R) are a great fit for Integra and the integrations are proceeding as planned,” said Glenn Coleman, Integra’s Chief Financial Officer.  “This gives us the confidence to raise the low-end of our guidance range for total revenue, organic sales growth and adjusted earnings per share.”

In the future, the Company may record, or expects to record, certain additional revenues, gains, expenses or charges as described in the Discussion of Adjusted Financial Measures below that it will exclude in the calculation of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted earnings per share for historical periods and in providing adjusted earnings per share guidance.

Discussion of Adjusted Financial Measures

In addition to our GAAP results, we provide organic revenues, adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”), adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per diluted share, adjusted diluted weighted average shares outstanding, free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow conversion.  Organic revenues consist of total revenues excluding the effects of currency exchange rates, acquired revenues and product discontinuances.  Adjusted EBITDA consists of GAAP net income (loss) from continuing operations, excluding: (i) depreciation and amortization, (ii) other income (expense), (iii) interest income and expense, (iv) income taxes, (v) and those operating expenses also excluded from adjusted net income.  The measure of adjusted net income consists of GAAP net income (loss) from continuing operations, excluding: (i) manufacturing facility remediation costs; (ii) global enterprise resource planning (“ERP”) implementation charges; (iii) structural optimization charges; (iv) Post spin SeaSpine separation-related charges; (v) certain employee severance charges; (vi) acquisition-related charges; (vii) discontinued product lines charges; (viii) impairment charges; (ix) convertible debt non-cash interest; (x) intangible asset amortization expense; and (xi) income tax impact from adjustments and other items.  The measure of adjusted diluted weighted average shares outstanding is calculated by adding the economic benefit of the convertible note hedge and warrant transactions relating to Integra’s 2016 convertible notes.  The adjusted earnings per diluted share measure is calculated by dividing adjusted net income attributable to diluted shares by adjusted diluted weighted average shares outstanding.  Because the Company reported a GAAP net loss in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, the calculation of GAAP diluted weighted average shares outstanding for the third quarter and year to date 2015 periods exclude the effects of stock options and unvested restricted stock, as the effect of these equity awards would be anti-dilutive.  The Company included the dilutive effects of these equity awards in the calculation of adjusted diluted weighted average shares outstanding used to calculate adjusted earnings per diluted share for the third quarter and year to date 2015 periods because their effects are dilutive in relation to adjusted net income. The measure of free cash flow consists of GAAP net cash provided by continuing operating activities from continuing operations less purchases of property and equipment.  The adjusted free cash flow conversion measure is calculated by dividing free cash flow by adjusted net income.           

Reconciliations of GAAP revenues to adjusted revenues and GAAP net income (loss) from continuing operations to adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted net income, and GAAP earnings per diluted share to adjusted earnings per diluted share all for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, and the free cash flow and free cash flow conversion for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 and the twelve months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, appear in the financial tables in this release.

The Company believes that the presentation of organic revenues and the various adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per diluted share, adjusted diluted weighted average shares outstanding, free cash flow and free cash flow conversion measures provide important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the Company’s financial condition and results of operations.  For further information regarding why Integra believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors, the specific manner in which management uses these measures, and some of the limitations associated with the use of these measures, please refer to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K regarding this earnings press release filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  This Current Report on Form 8-K is available on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov or on our website at www.integralife.com.
