  • Fourth quarter revenue increased 6.0% over the prior-year quarter to $255.7 million, with organic revenues up 7.0%;

  • Fourth quarter GAAP earnings per diluted share (EPS) amounted to $0.35, a 75% increase over the prior year period; adjusted EPS amounted to $0.52, or an increase of 18%;
  • Full-year 2016 cash flow from operations was $116.4 million, a decrease from $117.1 million over the prior year.  Excluding $42.8 million for the accreted interest payment associated with the convertible notes, cash flow from operations was $159.2 million, above the high end of our guidance range.

Total revenues for the full year 2016 were $992.1 million, an increase of $109.3 million, or 12.4%, over the full year 2015.  Total revenues for the fourth quarter were $255.7 million, representing an increase of $14.5 million, or 6.0%, over the fourth quarter of 2015.

Organic revenues, computed by adjusting GAAP revenues as set forth in the attached reconciliation, increased over 2015 by 9.0% in the full year, and 7.0% in the fourth quarter.

"We were pleased with our performance in 2016, which resulted in full-year organic revenue growth of 9% and full-year adjusted gross margin of 69.5%," said Peter Arduini, Integra's President and Chief Executive Officer.  "We look forward to a transformative 2017 as we integrate two of the largest acquisitions in the Company's history."

The Company reported GAAP net income of $74.6 million, or $0.94 per diluted share, for the full year 2016, compared to GAAP net income of $6.9 million, or $0.10 per diluted share in 2015.  Results in 2015 included a $35.6 million non-cash tax charge to establish a valuation allowance for certain deferred tax assets associated with the SeaSpine separation.  The Company reported GAAP net income of $28.2 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2016 compared to GAAP net income of $15.0 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2015.

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

Adjusted EBITDA for the full year 2016 was $231.7 million, or 23.4% of revenue, an increase from $195.6 million, or 22.2% of revenue, in the prior year.  Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $66.5 million, or 26.0% of revenue, an increase from $56.7 million, or 23.5% of revenue, in the fourth quarter of the prior year. 

Adjusted net income for the full year 2016 was $135.3 million, or $1.76 per diluted share, compared to $108.6 million, or $1.54 per diluted share in 2015.  Adjusted net income for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $40.7 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, compared to adjusted net income of $32.8 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2015. 

For the year ended December 31, 2016, cash flows from operations totaled $159.2 million, excluding a $42.8 million accreted interest payment.  Cash invested in capital expenditures was $47.3 million.   Adjusted free cash flow conversion for the trailing twelve months ended December 31, 2016 was 82.7% versus 77.0% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2015.  Integra generated $49.3 million of cash flows from operations, excluding a $42.8 million accreted interest payment, and invested $21.2 million in capital expenditures in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Outlook for 2017

The Company expects full year 2017 revenues to be between $1.12 billion and $1.14 billion, including the Derma Sciences acquisition, and organic sales growth to be between 7% and 8.5%. The Company expects its GAAP EPS for the full year to be between $0.49 and $0.55, and adjusted EPS to be between $1.88 and $1.94.

"In 2016, faster growth in higher margin products resulted in meeting or exceeding the high-end of our earnings and operating cash flow targets," said Glenn Coleman, Chief Financial Officer. "The Derma Sciences tender offer has been completed and we expect the transaction to close shortly.  We are now including Derma Sciences into our 2017 guidance, while the assumptions underlying our base business remain unchanged."

Full-year 2017 revenue and EPS guidance includes the expected financial impact of Derma Sciences. Our GAAP EPS and cash flow guidance also reflect the estimated expense and cash impact of estimates for pre-close costs associated with the Codman Neurosurgery acquisition. The post-closing financial impact of the Codman Neurosurgery acquisition is excluded from guidance and will be updated later in the year.

In the future, the Company may record, or expect 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 organic revenue growth, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS for historical periods and in providing adjusted EPS guidance.

These forward-looking statements are made only as of the date hereof, and the Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise the forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

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 and adjusted earnings per diluted share, adjusted diluted weighted average shares outstanding, free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow conversion.

Organic revenues consist of growth in total revenues excluding the contribution of acquired products, and effects of currency exchange rates on the current period's revenues, and the contribution of revenues from discontinued products in both the current and prior periods' revenues.  Adjusted EBITDA consist of GAAP net (loss)/income from continuing operations, excluding: (i) depreciation and amortization, (ii) other income (expense), net, (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 (loss)/income from continuing operations, excluding: (i) global ERP implementation charges; (ii) structural optimization charges; (iii) post-spin SeaSpine separation-related charges (iv) certain employee severance charges; (v) acquisition-related charges; (vi) intangible asset amortization expense; (vii) convertible debt non-cash interest; and (viii) income tax impact from adjustments and other items.  The measure of adjusted diluted weighted average shares outstanding is calculated by adding the economic benefit of the convertible note hedge and warrant transactions relating to Integra’s 2016 convertible notes.  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 organic revenues for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2016 and GAAP net (loss)/income to adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income, GAAP (losses)/earnings per diluted share to adjusted earnings per diluted share, and GAAP cash provided by operating activities to free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow conversion for the quarters and years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015 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, adjusted diluted weighted average shares outstanding, free cash flow and adjusted free cash flow conversion 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.
