PLAINSBORO, N.J., Oct. 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: IART), a leading global medical technology company, today reported financial results for the third quarter ending September 30, 2019.

Third Quarter 2019 Highlights

  • Reported revenues were $379.1 million, an increase of 3.6% over the third quarter of 2018, and organic revenues increased 4.7% over the prior year;
    • Foreign currency exchange rates negatively impacted reported revenues by $2.4 million in the third quarter of 2019;
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin was 24.2%, an increase of 120 basis points over the third quarter of 2018;
  • GAAP loss per diluted share was $(0.32), compared to GAAP earnings of $0.15 in the prior year.  The GAAP loss was primarily due to a $59.9 million in-process research and development charge related to the acquisition of Rebound Therapeutics Corporation (“Rebound”) in the third quarter of 2019.  Adjusted earnings per diluted share were $0.68, an increase of 15.3% over the third quarter of 2018;
  • The Company is tightening its full-year reported revenue guidance to a range of $1.517 billion to $1.522 billion from its prior range of $1.515 billion to $1.525 billion.  The Company is reaffirming full-year organic revenue growth of approximately 5%;
  • The Company is revising its GAAP earnings per diluted share guidance for the full year 2019 to a new range of $0.61 to $0.66 from the prior range of $1.46 to $1.53, a reduction primarily related to Rebound acquisition expenses.  The Company is reaffirming guidance for adjusted earnings per diluted share in the range of $2.70 to $2.75.

“We are pleased to have exceeded our third quarter revenue and earnings guidance.  For the second quarter in a row, our global CSS segment delivered broad-based strength and drove the outperformance,” said Peter Arduini, Integra’s president and chief executive officer.  “We have completed all the substantial Codman transition services activities and are reaffirming our full-year 2019 guidance for organic revenue growth and adjusted EPS.”

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2019 was $91.6 million, or 24.2% of revenue, compared to $84.3 million, or 23.0%, in the third quarter of 2018. The 120-basis point margin improvement was driven by higher revenue and improved operating leverage.

Adjusted net income for the third quarter of 2019 was $58.7 million, an increase of 16.0% from the prior year.  The increase in adjusted net income is a result of higher revenues, improved operating leverage and lower interest expense.  Adjusted earnings per diluted share for the third quarter of 2019 were $0.68, an increase of 15.3% over the prior year.

The Company reported a GAAP net loss of $(27.6) million, or $(0.32) per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2019, compared to GAAP net income of $13.3 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2018, a decrease mostly attributable to expenses associated with the Rebound acquisition.

2019 Full-Year Outlook

The Company is tightening its full-year reported revenue guidance to a range of $1.517 billion to $1.522 billion from its prior range of $1.515 billion to $1.525 billion.  The Company is reaffirming its full-year organic revenue growth guidance of approximately 5%.

The Company is revising its GAAP earnings per diluted share guidance for the full-year 2019 to a new range of $0.61 to $0.66 from the prior range of $1.46 to $1.53 due to higher acquisition and integration-related charges, primarily a $59.9 million in-process research and development expense related to Rebound.  The Company is reaffirming guidance for adjusted earnings per diluted share in the range of $2.70 to $2.75.

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 certain non-GAAP measures, including 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, revenues from current-period acquisitions 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 tax expense (benefit); and (v) those operating expenses also excluded from adjusted net income.  The measure of adjusted net income consists of GAAP net income, excluding: (i) structural optimization charges; (ii) acquisition and integration-related charges; (iii) litigation charges; (iv) EU Medical Device Regulation-related charges; (v) discontinued product lines charges; (vi) intangible asset amortization expense; (vii) income tax impact from adjustments; and, (viii) impairment charges.  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 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 September 30, 2019 and 2018, and the free cash flow and free cash flow conversion for the quarters ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, appear in the financial tables in this release.

The Company believes that the presentation of organic revenues and the other non-GAAP 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 www.sec.gov or on our website at www.integralife.com.
