Aug 6, 2009 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX News Network) --



          Revenues for the Second Quarter Increased to $166 Million

                  Outstanding Debt Reduced by $79 Million

PLAINSBORO, N.J., Aug. 6, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation (Nasdaq:IART) today reported its financial results for the second quarter ending June 30, 2009. Total revenues were $165.7 million, reflecting an increase of $8.5 million, or 5%, over the second quarter of 2008. Excluding the impact of currency exchange rates, revenues increased 8%. Revenues by product category are presented in a table at the end of this press release.

"We are pleased with the performance of our business, notwithstanding the difficult economy. We have cut costs and focused on our fastest growing businesses," said Integra's President and Chief Executive Officer, Stuart Essig.

The Company reported GAAP net income of $11.2 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2009, compared to GAAP net income of $12.3 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2008.

Adjusted net income for the second quarter of 2009, computed with the adjustments to GAAP reporting set forth in the attached reconciliation, was $15.0 million, or $0.51 per diluted share. Adjusted net income for the second quarter of 2008, computed with the adjustments to GAAP reporting set forth in the attached reconciliation, was $14.1 million, or $0.49 per diluted share.

Integra generated $30.6 million in cash flows from operations and used $5.2 million of cash on capital expenditures in the second quarter of 2009. For the four quarters ended June 30, 2009, Integra's cash flows from operations exceeded $120 million.

During the quarter, Integra repurchased $18.7 million par value of its 2.75% senior convertible notes due June 2010 for a total of $18.0 million and paid down $60.0 million of its credit facility. "Our strong operating cash flow in the past twelve months enabled us to repurchase over $50 million of our notes and pay down $60 million on our credit facility since the beginning of the year," said Jack Henneman, Integra's Chief Financial Officer. "We finished the quarter with $138.7 million in cash and $100 million in capacity under our revolving credit facility."

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2009, computed with the adjustments to GAAP reporting set forth in the attached reconciliation, was $34.9 million, an increase of 6% compared to the same period last year. Adjusted EBITDA excluding stock-based compensation, computed with the adjustments to GAAP reporting set forth in the attached reconciliation, was $38.9 million, an increase of 7% compared to the same period last year.

Outlook for 2009

The Company is updating its GAAP earnings per share guidance and reiterating its revenue and adjusted earnings per share guidance for the full year 2009. The Company continues to anticipate revenues between $680 million and $700 million. The Company is guiding to GAAP earnings per diluted share of between $1.64 and $1.84 and to adjusted earnings per diluted share of between $2.00 and $2.20. We expect revenues in the fourth quarter of 2009 will be the strongest of the year. In accordance with our usual practice, expectations for financial performance do not include the impact of acquisitions or other strategic corporate transactions that have not yet closed.

In the future, the Company may record, or expects 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 non-cash interest expense related to the application of FSP APB 14-1) 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.

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

Discussion of Adjusted Financial Measures

In addition to our GAAP results, we provide adjusted revenues, adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), adjusted EBITDA excluding stock-based compensation, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per diluted share. Adjusted revenues consist of growth in total revenues excluding the effects of currency exchange rates. Adjusted EBITDA consists of net income, excluding: (i) income taxes, (ii) other income (expense), net, (iii) depreciation and amortization, (iv) interest income and expense, and (v) those operating expenses also excluded from adjusted net income. 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 our European subsidiaries; (vi) charges related to litigation matters or disputes; (vii) intangible asset impairment charges; (viii) incremental professional and bank fees related to (a) the delayed filing of financial statements and (b) waivers or possibility of obtaining waivers under our revolving credit facility; (ix) charges recorded in connection with terminating defined benefit pension plans; (x) charges relating to the grant of restricted stock units in connection with the extension of the term of the CEO's employment agreement; (xi) loss/gain related to the early extinguishment of convertible notes; (xii) non-cash interest expense related to the application of FSP APB 14-1; (xiii) the income tax expense/benefit related to these adjustments; (xiv) quarterly adjustments to income tax expense/benefit related to the cumulative impact of changes in estimated tax rates and certain infrequently occurring items; and (xv) income tax expenses or gains related to restructuring our European subsidiaries. Adjusted net income attributable to diluted shares is calculated by multiplying adjusted net income by the diluted share percentage shown in Note 9 of the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2009. Adjusted earnings per diluted share are calculated by dividing adjusted net income attributable to diluted shares by diluted weighted average shares outstanding. Reconciliations of GAAP revenues to adjusted revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2009, and net income to adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA excluding stock-based compensation and adjusted net income, and GAAP earnings per diluted share to adjusted earnings per diluted share for the quarters ended June 30, 2009 and 2008 appear in the financial tables in this release.

Integra believes that the presentation of adjusted revenues, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA excluding stock-based compensation, 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.
