On January 8, 2019, Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing unaudited, preliminary fourth quarter 2018 financial results on revenues, organic revenues and adjusted earnings per share (the “Press Release”). A copy of the Press Release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated by reference into this Item.

The information contained in Item 2.02 of this Current Report on Form 8-K (including the Press Release and selected historical financial information) is being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section. The information contained in Item 2.02 of this Current Report on Form 8-K (including the Press Release and selected historical financial information) shall not be incorporated by reference into any registration statement or other document pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in any such filing.

Discussion of Adjusted Financial Measures
In addition to our GAAP results, we provide organic revenues and adjusted earnings per diluted share. Organic revenues consist of total revenues excluding the effects of currency exchange rates, acquired revenues, and product discontinuances. 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. The measure of adjusted net income consists of GAAP net income, excluding: (i) hurricane related expenses; (ii) structural optimization charges; (iii) acquisition- and integration-related charges; (iv) litigation charges; (v) intangible asset amortization expense; (vi) discontinued product lines charges; (vii) impairment charges; and (viii) income tax impact from adjustments.     
The Company believes that the presentation of organic revenues and adjusted earnings per diluted share provides important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the Company's financial condition and results of operations. Management uses non-GAAP financial measures in the form of organic revenues and adjusted earnings per diluted share when evaluating operating performance because we believe that the inclusion or exclusion of the items described above, for which the amounts and/or timing may vary significantly depending upon the Company's acquisition, integration, and restructuring activities, for which the amounts are non-cash in nature, or for which the amounts are not expected to recur at the same magnitude, provides a supplemental measure of our operating results that facilitates comparability of our financial condition and operating performance from period to period, against our business model objectives, and against other companies in our industry. We have chosen to provide this information to investors so they can analyze our operating results in the same way that management does and use this information in their assessment of our core business and the valuation of our Company.
Organic revenues and adjusted earnings per diluted share are significant measures used by management for purposes of:
supplementing the financial results and forecasts reported to the Company's board of directors;
evaluating, managing and benchmarking the operating performance of the Company;
establishing internal operating budgets;
determining compensation under bonus or other incentive programs;
enhancing comparability from period to period;
comparing performance with internal forecasts and targeted business models; and
evaluating and valuing potential acquisition candidates.
The measure of organic revenues that we report reflects the increase in total revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2018 adjusted for the effects of currency exchange rates, acquired revenues, and product discontinuations on current period revenues. We provide this measure because changes in foreign currency exchange rates can distort our revenue reduction favorably or unfavorably, depending upon the strength of the U.S. dollar in relation to the various foreign currencies in which we generate revenues. We generate significant revenues outside the United States in multiple foreign currencies. We believe this measure provides useful information to determine the success of our international selling organizations in increasing sales of products in their local currencies without regard to fluctuations in currency exchanges rates, for which we do not control. Additionally, significant acquisitions and discontinued product lines can distort our current period revenues when compared to prior periods.
Organic revenues and adjusted earnings per diluted share are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, and should be considered supplemental to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the revenues, costs or benefits associated with the operations of the Company's business as determined in accordance with GAAP. As a result, you should not consider these measures in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP. The Company expects to continue to acquire businesses and product lines and to incur expenses of a nature similar to many of the non-GAAP adjustments described above,

and exclusion of these items from its adjusted financial measures should not be construed as an inference that all of these revenue adjustments or costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.
