Integra LifeSciences Reports Third Quarter 2008 Financial Results

Nov 7, 2008 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX News Network) --



      Revenues for the Third Quarter Increase 24% to $167 Million

            Cash Flow From Operations Increases to $27 Million

   Announces Acquisition of Its Australian and New Zealand Distributor

PLAINSBORO, N.J., Nov. 7, 2008 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation (Nasdaq:IART) today reported its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2008. Total revenues in the third quarter of 2008 were $167.0 million, reflecting an increase of $32.0 million, or 24%, over the third quarter of 2007.

"Integra posted strong results this quarter and in the first three quarters of the year," said Stuart Essig, Integra's President and Chief Executive Officer. "We are pleased with the underlying strength of our business, including both revenue growth and operating cash flow."

The Company reported a GAAP net loss of $15.3 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2008, compared to GAAP net income of $9.7 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2007. During the quarter, the Company recorded a compensation charge and an in-process research and development charge related to the acquisition of the Theken companies totaling $43.5 million. GAAP operating loss for the third quarter of 2008 was $22.9 million.

In addition to GAAP results, Integra reports adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share. A further discussion of these non-GAAP financial measures can be found below, and reconciliations of GAAP net income/(loss) to adjusted net income and GAAP diluted earnings/(loss) per share to adjusted diluted earnings per share for the quarters ended September 30, 2008 and 2007 appear in the financial statements attached to this release.

Adjusted net income for the third quarter of 2008, computed with the adjustments to GAAP reporting set forth in the attached reconciliation, was $13.3 million, or $0.46 per diluted share. In the third quarter of 2007, adjusted net income was $11.3 million, or $0.39 per diluted share.

Integra generated approximately $27.1 million in operating cash flows in the quarter and has generated more than $45 million in operating cash flows year-to-date in 2008, a 40% increase over the same period in 2007.

Integra also announced today that it is launching a direct sales force in Australia and New Zealand through the acquisition of its longstanding distributor in those markets. Integra paid $4.1 million ($6.0 million Australian Dollars) at closing and may pay up to $2.1 million ($3.1 million Australian Dollars) in future payments based on the performance of the business during the three years after closing.

Excluding revenues from product lines acquired after the second quarter of 2007, total revenues grew 11% over the prior year period. Excluding eliminated product lines distributed for third parties and recently acquired product lines, total revenues grew approximately 13% over the prior-year period.

Beginning this quarter Integra will present its revenues in three categories: Integra NeuroSciences, Integra Orthopedics, and Integra Medical Instruments. We have presented a break-out of historical revenues into these three categories in the "Events and Presentations" page of the Investor Relations section of our website. These categories have been chosen to better reflect the markets into which our products are sold and replace the previously reported revenue categories.

Integra NeuroSciences revenues grew by 20% to $68.0 million from $56.7 million in the prior-year period. NeuroSciences revenues were strong across all major product lines, with ultrasonic aspirators, neuromonitoring, cranial stabilization, and duraplasty all recording double-digit growth.

Integra Orthopedic revenues, which include the Extremity Reconstruction, Integra OrthoBiologics, Integra Spine, and private label product lines, grew by 63% to $53.8 million from $33.0 million in the prior-year period. Recently acquired IsoTis and Theken Spine revenues contributed $16.2 million in the period. Extremity reconstruction products grew more than 20%. Private label revenues were essentially flat versus the prior year period.

"This new format for presenting our revenues highlights the strength of our growing orthopedics business," said Mr. Essig. "The extremities, orthobiologics, and spine franchises complement each other and benefit from our leading position in tissue engineering. Our acquisitions of IsoTis last year and Theken Spine this year and the expansion of Integra's extremities reconstruction sales organization reinforce our commitment to the high-growth areas of orthopedics."

Integra Medical Instruments revenues were essentially flat year-over-year at $45.2 million versus $45.3 million in the prior-year period. This category is comprised of the Jarit, Luxtec, Miltex, and several smaller product lines, including pain management. During 2008, we have integrated these businesses and eliminated underperforming and certain distributed product lines, which has tempered growth in this category for several quarters. Since May 2007, we have eliminated distributed product lines representing approximately 40% of the original revenues of the LXU business.

Gross margin on total revenues in the third quarter of 2008 was 61.5%. Cost of goods sold included $1.3 million of inventory fair value purchase accounting charges from the Theken acquisition, $1.2 million of charges from discontinued product lines, and $0.2 million of charges related to facility consolidations, manufacturing transfers, and systems integration. Together, these charges reduced the gross margin by 1.6 percentage points.

Research and development expense increased $28.2 million in the third quarter of 2008 to $34.7 million. Research and development expense in the third quarter of 2008 included a $25.2 million acquired in-process research and development charge related to the Theken acquisition.

Selling, general and administrative expense increased by $31.5 million to $87.7 million in the third quarter of 2008, or 52% of total revenue, compared to $56.2 million, or 42% of total revenue, in the third quarter of 2007. Selling, general and administrative expense for the third quarter of 2008 includes a compensation charge of $18.4 million related to the restricted stock units granted in connection with the extension of the term of our Chief Executive Officer's employment agreement in the third quarter of this year. We continue to leverage our selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of sales. We expect these expenses to decrease to between 39% and 41% of revenue in 2009, with the increased leverage of our larger selling organizations being partially offset by the inclusion of the recently acquired Theken companies.

We reported a $1.5 million increase in net interest expense to $3.9 million for the third quarter of 2008, primarily from increased borrowings under our credit facility to fund the purchase of the Theken companies in August and the repayment of our $120 million convertible notes in April 2008.

At September 30, 2008, our cash totaled $109.4 million, and we had $200 million in outstanding borrowings under our credit facility. On October 30, 2008, the Company borrowed an additional $60 million under our senior secured revolving credit facility for general corporate purposes.

Integra's Board of Directors recently approved a $75 million share repurchase authorization, which will expire on December 31, 2010. Integra did not repurchase any shares of common stock during the quarter.

The company has updated its fourth quarter and full year 2008 guidance and is introducing its guidance for the full year 2009. In accordance with usual practice, expectations for financial performance do not include the impact of acquisitions or other strategic corporate transactions that have not yet closed. However, the company's guidance does reflect the acquisition of its distributor in Australia and New Zealand. The acquisition closed on October 31, 2008.

In the fourth quarter of 2008 and in 2009, Integra anticipates that it will incur various charges related to inventory purchase accounting and integration of Theken and the company's distributor in Australia and New Zealand. We also anticipate consolidation, manufacturing and distribution transfer, and system integration charges related to various projects including the continued transfer of manufacturing amongst various sites and Oracle implementation activities in our facilities. These anticipated charges are outlined in the "Reconciliation of non-GAAP adjustments -- guidance" table at the end of this release.

In the future we may record, or expect to record, certain additional revenues, gains, expenses or charges (such as acquisition-related charges, facility consolidation, manufacturing and distribution transfer and system integration charges, and certain employee termination and related costs) that we will exclude in the calculation of adjusted earnings per share for historical periods and in providing adjusted earnings per share guidance.

We have increased our revenue guidance for the full year 2008 to a range of $657 million to $665 million from $650 million to $663 million. This revised guidance reflects actual results for the first three quarters of 2008. Fourth quarter revenue guidance is unchanged at $177 million to $185 million. The company is also introducing revenue guidance of $735 million to $755 million for the full year 2009. As has been the case in the past, we expect revenues in the first quarter of 2009 to be 3-5% lower than the fourth quarter of 2008, and earnings to be disproportionately lower, and that the fourth quarter of 2009 will be the strongest quarter of the year.

We are also revising our GAAP and adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance. The new full year 2008 guidance reflects actual results for the first three quarters. 2009 GAAP guidance does not include the impact of the adoption of the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Staff Position No. APB 14-1, Accounting for Convertible Debt Instruments that May be Settled in Cash Upon Conversion ("FSP APB 14-1"). FSP APB 14-1 requires that the liability and equity components of convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash upon conversion (including partial cash settlement) be separately accounted for in a manner that reflects an issuer's nonconvertible debt borrowing rate. The company expects to provide guidance on the impact of the new standard in 2009.

We expect GAAP diluted earnings per share in the range of $0.96 - $1.01 for full year of 2008 and $0.60 - $0.65 for the fourth quarter of 2008. For full year 2009, we anticipate GAAP diluted earnings per share within the range of $2.24- $2.44.

We are updating full year 2008 adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance to within a range of $2.14 - $2.19 based on for third quarter results and the beneficial impact of a 31% expected full year adjusted income tax rate. Fourth quarter 2008 adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance remains unchanged at $0.60-$0.65. For full year 2009 adjusted diluted earnings per share is expected to be in the range of $2.35 - $2.55.

The Company expects to incur approximately $4.1 million, or $0.08 per share, of share-based compensation expense associated with FAS 123R in the fourth quarter of 2008 and approximately $4.0 million, or $0.08 per share, on a quarterly basis for 2009. This non-cash compensation expense is included in both the GAAP and adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance for fourth quarter 2008 and 2009 provided above.

We have scheduled a conference call for 9:00 am ET Monday, November 10, 2008, to discuss the financial results for the fourth quarter of 2008 and forward-looking financial guidance. The call is open to all listeners and will be followed by a question and answer session.

Discussion of Adjusted Financial Measures

In addition to our GAAP results, we provide adjusted revenues, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per diluted share. Adjusted revenues consists of the following two measures: (i) growth in total revenues excluding product lines acquired after the second quarter 2007 and (ii) growth in total revenues excluding eliminated products lines distributed for third parties and recently acquired product lines. Adjusted net income consists of net income, excluding (i) acquisition-related charges, (ii) facility consolidation, manufacturing and distribution transfer and system integration charges, (iii) certain employee termination and related costs, (iv) charges associated with discontinued or withdrawn product lines, (v) charges related to restructuring European subsidiaries, (vi) intangible asset impairment charges, (vii) incremental professional and bank fees related to the delay in the filing of our 2007 Annual Report on Form 10-K, (viii) charges relating to the grant of restricted stock units in connection with the extension of the term of the CEO's employment agreement and (ix) the income tax expense/benefit related to these adjustments and the cumulative impact of changes in tax rates. Adjusted earnings per diluted share are calculated by dividing adjusted net income for earnings per diluted share by adjusted diluted weighted average shares outstanding. Because the Company reported a GAAP net loss in the third quarter of 2008, the calculation of GAAP diluted weighted average shares outstanding for the third quarter of 2008 excludes 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 of 2008 because their effects are dilutive in relation to adjusted net income.

Integra believes that the presentation of adjusted revenues, adjusted net income 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. 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.Integra-LS.com.

 (g) 2007 - A $667 reduction to income tax expense during the third
     quarter of 2007 was made to reflect what the income tax expense
     would have been based upon a 34% effective income tax rate. The
     adjusted 34% effective income tax rate for the third quarter of
     2007 approximates the effective income tax rate that would have
     been reported for the quarter after excluding the cumulative
     impact of changes in actual statutory rates and estimated
     effective income tax rates on prior quarters and certain
     infrequently occurring items on the 2007 reported tax rate.

     2008 - The amount is also reduced by $802 to reflect what the
     income tax expense would have been based upon a 31% effective
     income tax rate. The adjusted 31% effective income tax rate for
     the third quarter of 2008 approximates the effective income tax
     rate that would have been reported for the quarter after
     excluding the cumulative impact of changes in actual statutory
     rates and estimated effective income tax rates on prior quarters
     and certain infrequently occurring items on the 2008 reported tax
     rate.

     2008 and 2007 - the remaining amount reflects the estimated
     additional tax (expense)/benefit that the Company would record if
     it used non-GAAP results instead of GAAP results in the
     calculation of its tax provision, based on the statutory rate
     applicable to jurisdictions in which the above non-GAAP
     adjustments relate.
