PLAINSBORO, N.J., July 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ:IART), a leading global medical technology company, today reported financial results for the second quarter ending June 30, 2018.

Second Quarter 2018 Consolidated Results

  • Reported revenue was $366.2 million, an increase of 29.8% compared to the second quarter of 2017; the acquisition of Codman contributed $79.2 million of revenue to the second quarter, and organic revenues increased 3.4%. Using foreign currency rates in effect when the company provided guidance in April 2018, the second quarter revenues would have been $368.4 million;
  • GAAP earnings per share was $0.14, flat compared to the second quarter of 2017;
  • Adjusted earnings per share was $0.60, reflecting an increase of 33.3% compared to the second quarter of 2017;
  • The company has successfully exited the first wave of Codman transition services agreements and assumed full operational control of all commercial services and functions covering approximately 60% of the revenue associated with the acquired business;
  • The company is raising the low end of its full-year 2018 total revenue and earnings per share guidance as follows:
    • Total revenue of $1.475 billion to $1.490 billion (previously $1.470 billion to $1.490 billion);
      • Guidance range reflects lower foreign currency benefit based on current rates (expected foreign currency benefit was reduced from $15 million to $8 million)
    • GAAP EPS of $0.71 to $0.77 (previously $0.69 to $0.77);
    • Adjusted EPS of $2.36 to $2.42 (previously $2.34 to $2.42); and
  • The company is reiterating full-year 2018 organic sales growth guidance of approximately 5%.

Total revenues for the second quarter of 2018 were $366.2 million, reflecting an increase of 29.8% over the second quarter of 2017. Sales in the Codman Specialty Surgical segment increased 49.8% compared to the second quarter of 2017, driven by the Codman acquisition and strong performance in the Dural Access and Repair and Advanced Energy businesses.  Sales in the Orthopedics and Tissue Technologies segment increased 3.6%, reflecting broad-based strength in our regenerative technologies business, following the completion of the commercial expansion strategy.

Total organic revenues increased 3.4% over the second quarter of 2017, excluding acquisitions, divestitures and the effect of currency exchange rates.

“We look forward to an acceleration in organic growth in the second half of 2018, as we realize the benefits of a larger sales organization, improved sales productivity and an expanded product portfolio,” said Peter Arduini, Integra’s president and chief executive officer.  “The successful integration of Codman and the completion of the hiring associated with our OTT channel expansion strategy increase our confidence for the second half of the year.”

The company reported GAAP net income of $11.4 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2018, compared to GAAP net income of $10.8 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2017. The slight increase in GAAP net income is a result of higher revenues and better operating expense leverage.

The adjusted measures discussed below are computed with the adjustments to GAAP reporting that are set forth in the attached reconciliation.

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2018 was $85.9 million, or 23.5% of revenue, compared to $62.7 million, or 22.2% of revenue, in the second quarter of 2017. The margin improvement was largely based on better operating expense leverage, mostly from selling, general and administrative costs.

Adjusted net income for the second quarter of 2018 was $50.5 million, an increase of 42.7% from the prior year’s quarter. Adjusted earnings per share for the second quarter of 2018 was $0.60, an increase of 33.3% over the prior year’s quarter.

2018 Full-Year Outlook

The company is raising the low end of its full-year 2018 total revenue guidance by $5 million to a new range of $1.475 billion to $1.490 billion.  The company is also raising the low end of its full-year 2018 GAAP earnings per share guidance range to $0.71 to $0.77, and adjusted earnings per share guidance range to $2.36 to $2.42, an increase of two cents.

The company expects full-year 2018 organic revenue growth to be approximately 5.0%, consistent with prior guidance.

“We were pleased with the strong operational performance from both segments in the second quarter, which enabled us to achieve 40% growth in adjusted net income and 130 basis points of adjusted EBITDA margin expansion, compared to the prior year’s quarter,” said Glenn Coleman, Integra’s chief financial officer.  “Given the strong momentum we expect in the second half of 2018, we are raising the low-end of our revenue and EPS guidance ranges.”

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, which will be excluded from the calculation of adjusted EBITDA, adjusted earnings per share for historical periods and in adjusted earnings per share guidance.

Discussion of Adjusted Financial Measures

In addition to our GAAP results, we provide organic revenues, adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”), adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per diluted share, free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow conversion.  Organic revenues consist of total revenues excluding the effects of currency exchange rates, acquired revenues and product discontinuances.  Adjusted EBITDA consists of GAAP net income excluding: (i) depreciation and amortization; (ii) other income (expense); (iii) interest income and expense; (iv) income taxes; and (v) those operating expenses also excluded from adjusted net income.  The measure of adjusted net income consists of GAAP net income, excluding: (i) global enterprise resource planning (“ERP”) implementation charges; (ii) structural optimization charges; (iii) acquisition- and integration-related charges; (iv) litigation charges; (v) intangible asset amortization expense; (vi) discontinued product lines charges; and (vii) 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.  The measure of free cash flow consists of GAAP net cash provided by operating activities from less purchases of property and equipment.  The adjusted free cash flow conversion measure is calculated by dividing free cash flow by adjusted net income.

Reconciliations of GAAP revenues to adjusted revenues and GAAP Adjusted Net Income to adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted net income, and GAAP earnings per diluted share to adjusted earnings per diluted share all for the quarters ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, and the free cash flow and free cash flow conversion for the quarters ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, appear in the financial tables in this release.

The Company believes that the presentation of organic revenues and the various adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per diluted share, free cash flow and free cash flow conversion measures provide 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 or on our website at
