Wright Medical Group, Inc. Reports 2014 Third Quarter Financial Results and Updated Guidance

Third Quarter Global Foot and Ankle Net Sales Increase 30% As Reported and 29% Constant Currency

Third Quarter Sales Increase 24% As Reported and 24% Constant Currency

Full Year 2014 Guidance Updated

MEMPHIS, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 5, 2014-- Wright Medical Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: WMGI) today reported financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2014 and updated guidance. As a result of the completed sale of the hip and knee business to MicroPort Medical B.V., a subsidiary of MicroPort Scientific Corporation (MicroPort), this business is reported as discontinued operations.

Net sales totaled $71.3 million during the third quarter ended September 30, 2014, representing a 24% increase as reported and 24% increase on a constant currency basis compared to the third quarter of 2013.

Robert Palmisano, president and chief executive officer, commented, “Our third quarter results were impacted by softer than anticipated results in our core U.S. foot and ankle products, excluding total ankle, and in certain geographies of our international business. These results were affected by a combination of sales execution issues in the U.S. and an inability to fill some international distributor orders late in the quarter, both of which we have already moved to correct. Given these developments, as well as negative currency impact during the third quarter and some potential distraction related to our merger announcement with Tornier, we are updating our guidance for the full-year.”

Palmisano continued, “We saw improved momentum in the U.S. exiting the third quarter and continuing early in the fourth quarter and believe we have all the necessary ingredients for success. Our core sales drivers remain in place, including continued gains in U.S. foot and ankle sales force productivity and positive contribution from additional sales reps, acquired products and new product launches, in particular our INFINITY total ankle replacement system. The U.S. foot and ankle market is still strong, and we are confident we have the right products and strategy to achieve our growth goals. Our focus going forward will be on improving our execution to realize our full potential.”

Net loss from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2014 totaled $49.6 million or ($0.99) per diluted share, compared to net loss of $124.5 million or ($2.68) per diluted share in the third quarter of 2013.

Net loss from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2014 included the after-tax effects of an $18.5 million unrealized loss related to mark-to-market adjustments on contingent value rights (CVRs) issued in connection with the BioMimetic acquisition, $2.3 million of non-cash interest expense related to the 2017 Convertible Notes, $1.9 million of transaction and transition costs associated with recent acquisitions, $1.8 million of contingent consideration fair value adjustments, $1.2 million of costs associated with management changes, an unrealized loss of $1.0 million related to mark-to-market adjustments on derivatives, $0.9 million of transition costs associated with the sale of the OrthoRecon business, $0.9 million of patent dispute settlement costs, $0.5 million of charges associated with distributor conversions and non-competes, and a $2.8 million U.S. tax provision within continuing operations to offset the tax benefit recorded within discontinued operations. Net loss from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2013 included the after-tax effects of a $137.9 million net non-cash charge associated with the write-down to fair value of assets and liabilities associated with the BioMimetic acquisition, and a $3.2 million charge associated with noncancelable BioMimetic inventory purchase commitments, $11.2 million of transition costs associated with the sale of the OrthoRecon business, $2.2 million of non-cash interest expense related to the 2017 Convertible Notes, an unrealized loss of $2.0 million related to mark-to-market adjustments on derivatives, $1.6 million of costs associated with the acquisitions of BioMimetic and Biotech International, and $0.7 million of charges associated with distributor conversions and non-competes.

The Company's third quarter 2014 net loss from continuing operations, as adjusted for the above items, was ($17.7) million, a decline from a net loss of ($8.2) million in 2013, while diluted loss per share, as adjusted, decreased to ($0.35) in the third quarter of 2014 from ($0.18) in the third quarter of 2013. The attached financial tables include a reconciliation of U.S. GAAP to “as adjusted” results.

The Company's third quarter 2014 adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations, as defined in the GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation provided later in this release, was negative ($5.9) million, compared to negative ($4.8) million in the same quarter of the prior year. The attached financial tables include a reconciliation of U.S. GAAP to “as adjusted” results.

Cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities totaled $276.2 million as of the end of the third quarter of 2014, an increase of $93.1 million compared to the end of 2013, which was driven by the closing of the MicroPort, Solana Surgical and OrthoPro transactions.

Palmisano concluded, “Our INFINITY launch is moving into high gear, and that, combined with our continued focus on the execution of our Vital Few initiatives, will further strengthen and expand our market-leading competitive position. In addition, we believe that our pending merger with Tornier will enhance shareholder value through the creation of the premier high-growth Extremities-Biologics company that is uniquely positioned with leading technologies and specialized sales forces in three of the fastest growing areas of orthopaedics. That leadership will be further enhanced by the anticipated launch of Augment Bone Graft, which will add additional depth to what will be the most comprehensive extremity and biologics product portfolio in the industry as well as providing a platform technology for future new product development.”

Outlook

The Company anticipates net sales from continuing operations, or Extremity and Biologics revenue, for 2014 of approximately $298 million to $302 million, representing growth of 23% to 25% from 2013, compared to previous guidance of $308 million to $312 million.

The Company anticipates 2014 adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations, as described in the GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation provided later in this release, of negative $(23.0) million to negative $(26.0) million.

The Company anticipates adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations, including stock-based compensation, for full-year 2014 of $(1.40) to $(1.46) per diluted share, based on approximately 49.7 million shares outstanding. While the amount of the non-cash stock-based compensation charges will vary depending upon a number of factors, the Company currently estimates that the after-tax impact of those expenses will be approximately $0.23 per diluted share for the full-year 2014.

The Company's earnings target and adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations target exclude non-compete and transition costs associated with converting a major portion of independent foot and ankle territories to direct; possible future acquisitions; other material future business developments; non-cash interest expense associated with the 2017 Convertible Notes; due diligence, transaction and transition costs associated with acquisitions and divestitures; impairment charges, mark-to-market adjustments to the CVRs and other adjustments to assets and liabilities associated with its BioMimetic acquisition, and non-cash mark-to-market derivative adjustments. Further, this earnings target and adjusted EBITDA target excludes any expenses, earnings or losses related to the OrthoRecon business.

The Company's anticipated ranges for net sales, earnings and adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations are forward-looking statements, as are any other statements that anticipate or aspire to future events or performance. They are subject to various risks and uncertainties that could cause the Company's actual results to differ materially from the anticipated targets.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures, such as net sales, excluding the impact of foreign currency; operating income, as adjusted; net income, as adjusted; EBITDA, as adjusted; net income, as adjusted, per diluted share; effective tax rate, as adjusted; and free cash flow. The Company's management believes that the presentation of these measures provides useful information to investors. These measures may assist investors in evaluating the Company's operations, period over period. The measures exclude such items as costs associated with distributor conversions and non-competes, non-cash interest expense related to the Company's 2017 Convertible Notes, mark-to-market adjustments on derivative assets and liabilities, mark-to-market adjustments on CVRs and impairment and other charges to write down to fair value assets and liabilities acquired in the BioMimetic acquisition, transaction and transition costs, costs associated with management changes, fair value adjustments of contingent consideration, patent dispute settlement costs, and impacts from the sale of the OrthoRecon business, all of which may be highly variable, difficult to predict and of a size that could have substantial impact on the Company's reported results of operations for a period. Management uses these measures internally for evaluation of the performance of the business, including the allocation of resources and the evaluation of results relative to employee performance compensation targets. Investors should consider these non-GAAP measures only as a supplement to, not as a substitute for or as superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.
