Integra LifeSciences Reports First Quarter 2010 Financial Results

Revenues for the First Quarter Increased to $173 Million

PLAINSBORO, N.J., May 3, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation (Nasdaq:IART) today reported its financial results for the first quarter ending March 31, 2010. Total revenues for the first quarter were $172.7 million, reflecting an increase of $11.7 million, or 7%, over the first quarter of 2009. Excluding the impact of currency exchange rates, revenues increased 6% over the first quarter of 2009. Revenues by product category are presented in a table at the end of this press release.

"Despite ongoing challenges in our industry, the continued improvement across our product categories builds a foundation for sales growth and earnings leverage in 2010," said Stuart Essig, Integra's President and Chief Executive Officer.

The Company reported GAAP net income of $15.2 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2010, compared to GAAP net income of $9.6 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2009.

Adjusted net income for the first quarter of 2010, computed with the adjustments to GAAP reporting set forth in the attached reconciliation, was $19.0 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, compared to $17.0 million, or $0.58 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2009. Amounts in both periods exclude intangible asset amortization, which was $4.5 million, in the first quarter of 2010 and $4.9 million in the first quarter of 2009.

Integra generated $28.1 million in cash flows from operations and used $5.9 million of cash on capital expenditures in the first quarter of 2010. During the quarter, Integra paid down $15.0 million of its credit facility with cash.

"In addition to our revenue growth, I was pleased by the profitability and cash generation of the Company," said Integra's Chief Financial Officer, Jack Henneman.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2010, computed with the adjustments to GAAP reporting set forth in the attached reconciliation, was $33.8 million, the same as first quarter last year.

Adjusted EBITDA excluding stock-based compensation for the first quarter of 2010, computed with the adjustments to GAAP reporting set forth in the attached reconciliation, was $37.6 million, also the same as first quarter last year.

Outlook for 2010

The Company is reiterating its revenue guidance and GAAP and adjusted earnings per share guidance for the full year 2010. The Company continues to anticipate revenues between $715 million and $735 million. The Company is guiding to GAAP earnings per diluted share of between $1.92 and $2.07 and to adjusted earnings per diluted share of between $2.60 and $2.75. This guidance for adjusted earnings per diluted share excludes intangible asset amortization. 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 systems integration charges, non-cash interest expense related to the application of authoritative guidance for convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash upon conversion ("FSP APB 14-1"), and intangible asset amortization) 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 million of share-based compensation expense in 2010. This non-cash compensation expense is reflected in both the GAAP and adjusted earnings per diluted share guidance for 2010 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 (which excludes intangible asset amortization expense). Adjusted revenues consist of growth in total revenues excluding the effects of currency exchange rates on the current period's revenues. The various measures of adjusted EBITDA consist of GAAP net income, excluding: (i) depreciation and amortization, (ii) other income (expense), net, (iii) interest income and expense, (iv) income taxes, (v) those operating expenses also excluded from adjusted net income and, as appropriate (vi) stock-based compensation expense. The measure of adjusted net income consists of GAAP net income, excluding: (i) acquisition-related charges; (ii) charges associated with discontinued or withdrawn product lines; (iii) systems implementation charges; (iv) facility consolidation, manufacturing and distribution transfer charges; (v) incremental professional and bank fees related to the possibility of obtaining a waiver under our revolving credit facility; (vi) charges related to restructuring our European subsidiaries; (vii) gain related to the early extinguishment of convertible notes; (viii) certain employee termination and related costs; (ix) non-cash interest expense related to the application of FSP APB 14-1; (x) intangible asset amortization expense; (xi) quarterly adjustments to income tax expense/benefit related to the cumulative impact of changes in estimated tax rates and certain infrequently occurring items; and (xii) the income tax expense/benefit related to these adjustments. Adjusted net income attributable to diluted shares is calculated by multiplying adjusted net income by the diluted share percentage. The adjusted earnings per diluted share measure is 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 March 31, 2010 and GAAP 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 March 31, 2010 and 2009 appear in the financial tables in this release.

Integra believes that the presentation of adjusted revenues and the various adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, and adjusted earnings per diluted share measures 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.
