Integra LifeSciences Reports First Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Revenues $196 Million

Raises Bottom End of Adjusted EPS Guidance

PLAINSBORO, N.J., April 25, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation (Nasdaq:IART) today reported its financial results for the first quarter ending March 31, 2012. Total revenues for the first quarter were $196.2 million, reflecting an increase of $15.1 million, or 8%, over the first quarter of 2011. Excluding the impact of currency exchange rates, revenues increased 9% over the first quarter of 2011. The Company presents revenues by reportable segment and worldwide product category in tables at the end of this press release.

The Company reported GAAP net income of $6.7 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2012, compared to GAAP net income of $11.5 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2011. 

Adjusted net income for the first quarter of 2012, computed with the adjustments to GAAP reporting set forth in the attached reconciliation, was $20.2 million, or $0.71 per diluted share, compared to $20.0 million, or $0.66 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2011. 

"Both our commercial and operations teams executed well during the first quarter," said Peter Arduini, Integra's President and Chief Executive Officer. "These efforts enabled us to deliver results at the high end of the guidance range we provided in February."

Integra generated $32.3 million in cash flows from operations and used $10.4 million of cash on capital expenditures in the first quarter of 2012. During the quarter, Integra used $12.8 million of cash to pay down its revolving line of credit.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2012, computed with the adjustments to GAAP reporting set forth in the attached reconciliation, was $39.0 million, an increase of 6% compared to the first quarter last year.

Adjusted EBITDA excluding stock-based compensation for the first quarter of 2012, computed with the adjustments to GAAP reporting set forth in the attached reconciliation, was $41.1 million, an increase of 1% compared to the first quarter last year.

Beginning in the first quarter 2012, the Company began reporting in segments. Please view the supplemental disclosure of revenue by reporting segments, set forth in the tables attached to this press release.

Outlook for 2012

The Company reiterated its expectations to record revenues for the full year 2012 between $820 million and $835 million, at current exchange rates. The Company is guiding to GAAP earnings per diluted share for the full year of 2012 between $1.55 and $1.64 and to adjusted earnings per diluted share of between $2.97 and $3.06.

"The strong earnings in the first quarter, which reflects both strong regenerative medicine product sales and good expense control, increases our confidence that our adjusted earnings per share will finish the year within our original range," said Jack Henneman, Integra's Chief Financial Officer. "With that in mind, we are raising the bottom end of our adjusted earnings guidance range."

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 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 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 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) Plainsboro, New Jersey manufacturing facility remediation costs; (ii) global ERP implementation charges; (iii) facility optimization charges; (iv) certain employee termination charges; (v) discontinued product lines charges; (vi) acquisition-related charges; (vii) impairment charges; (viii) European entity restructuring charges; (ix) convertible debt non-cash interest; (x) intangible asset amortization expense; and (xi) income tax impact from adjustments and other items. 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, 2012 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, 2012 and 2011 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.integralife.com.
