PLANO, Texas, Feb. 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integer Holdings Corporation (NYSE:ITGR), a leading medical device outsource manufacturer, today announced results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 28, 2018.

Fourth Quarter 2018 Highlights

-- GAAP Sales from continuing operations increased 0.3% and Non-GAAP Sales from continuing operations increased 0.8% to $303 million.

-- GAAP income from continuing operations decreased $36 million to $19 million. Prior year quarter includes U.S. tax reform benefits totaling $39 million. Non-GAAP adjusted income from continuing operations increased $6 million to $34 million.

-- Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations increased 6% to $68 million.

-- GAAP diluted EPS from continuing operations decreased $1.11 per share to $0.58 per share. Non-GAAP adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations increased $0.15 per share to $1.04, an increase of 17%.

-- Paid down $30 million of debt, reducing total outstanding debt to $926 million.

Full Year 2018 Highlights

-- GAAP Sales from continuing operations increased 7% to $1.215 billion. Non-GAAP Sales from continuing operations increased 7% to $1.213 billion.

-- GAAP Income from continuing operations decreased $40 million to $47 million. Prior year includes U.S. tax reform benefits totaling $39 million. GAAP diluted EPS from continuing operations decreased $1.28 to $1.44.

-- Adjusted Non-GAAP from continuing operations: Income of $124 million, up 26%; EBITDA of $259 million, up 11%; Diluted EPS of $3.80, up 23%.

-- Generated $167 million of Cash Flow from Operating Activities.

-- Completed the divestiture of the Advanced Surgical and Orthopedic product lines (“AS&O Product Line”).

-- Paid down debt by $700 million, including all $360 million of outstanding senior notes with a 9.125% fixed rate, resulting in a leverage ratio of 3.5x adjusted EBITDA at year-end versus 5.6x at the beginning of the year.

“Integer delivered another strong quarter of earnings, despite difficult prior year sales comps,” said Joseph Dziedzic, Integer’s president and chief executive officer. “We also continued to generate strong cash flow and lowered our debt leverage to 3.5x adjusted EBITDA, down from the 5.6x at the beginning of the year. Our strengthened financial position and performance provide flexibility to invest more aggressively in markets where Integer is differentiated and to drive the execution of our product line strategies,” Mr. Dziedzic continued.

“In 2018, we exceeded our financial guidance, executed a strategic divestiture, strengthened our leadership team and, in September, launched our operational strategic imperatives designed to achieve excellence in everything we do.”

Discussion of Product Line Fourth Quarter and Full Year Sales

-- Cardio & Vascular sales increased primarily due to demand in the electrophysiology and peripheral vascular markets stemming from customer share gains and new product launches.

-- Cardiac & Neuromodulation fourth quarter decline was expected and the result of a difficult fourth quarter 2017 comparison, Cardiac Rhythm Management market headwinds from customer inventory reductions in anticipation of next generation products and price erosion; partially offset by Neuromodulation growth driven by spinal cord stimulation market demand and increased market penetration in the sale of components. Cardiac & Neuromodulation full year sales were driven by strong Neuromodulation growth, partially offset by pricing in Cardiac Rhythm Management.

-- Advanced Surgical, Orthopedics & Portable Medical includes sales to the acquirer of our AS&O product line, Viant, under supply agreements associated with the divestiture. Sales increase was driven by above market demand in the Advanced Surgical and the Orthopedics markets, strong market demand in Portable Medical, and new product launches.

-- Electrochem sales declined primarily due to continued North American drilling activity leveling off, which has led to customer inventory adjustments.

2019 Outlook(a)(dollars in millions, except per share amounts)

GAAP Non-GAAP(b) Continuing Operations: As Reported Growth Adjusted Growth -------------------------- ---------------- ----------- ---------------- --------- Sales $1,260 to $1,280 4% to 5% $1,260 to $1,280 4% to 6% Income $92 to $98 96% to 108% $134 to $141 8% to 13% EBITDA N/A N/A $275 to $283 6% to 9% Earnings per Diluted Share $2.77 to $2.97 93% to 107% $4.05 to $4.25 7% to 12%

1. Except as described below, further reconciliations by line item to the closest corresponding GAAP financial measure for Adjusted Sales, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share, included in our “2019 Outlook” above, are not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability, complexity and visibility of the charges excluded from these non-GAAP financial measures. 2. Adjusted income and diluted EPS, both from continuing operations, for 2019 is expected to consist of GAAP income from continuing operations and diluted EPS from continuing operations, excluding items such as intangible amortization, IP-related litigation costs, consolidation and realignment costs, asset dispositions, severance and loss on extinguishment of debt totaling approximately $53 million, pre-tax. The after-tax impact of these items is estimated to be approximately $42 million, or approximately $1.28 per diluted share. Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations is expected to consist of Adjusted income from continuing operations, excluding items such as depreciation, interest, stock-based compensation and taxes totaling approximately $142 million.

Notes Regarding Non-GAAP Financial InformationIn addition to our results reported in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), we provide adjusted sales, adjusted income, adjusted earnings per diluted share, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”), adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, and organic growth rates, all from continuing operations. Adjusted income and adjusted earnings per diluted share from continuing operations consist of GAAP amounts adjusted for the following to the extent occurring during the period: (i) acquisition and integration related charges and expenses, (ii) amortization of intangible assets, (iii) facility consolidation, optimization, manufacturing transfer and system integration charges, (iv) asset write-down and disposition charges, (v) charges in connection with corporate realignments or a reduction in force, (vi) certain litigation expenses, charges and gains, (vii) unusual or infrequently occurring items, (viii) gain (loss) on equity investments, (ix) extinguishment of debt charges, (x) the net impact of the LSAs between the Company and Viant, (xi) the income tax (benefit) related to these adjustments and (xii) certain tax items that are outside the normal provision for the period. Adjusted earnings per diluted share from continuing operations are calculated by dividing adjusted income from continuing operations by diluted weighted average shares outstanding. Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations consists of GAAP net income (loss) from continuing operations plus (i) the same adjustments as listed above except for items (xi) and (xii), (ii) GAAP stock-based compensation, interest expense, and depreciation, and (iii) GAAP provision (benefit) for income taxes. Adjusted EBITDA margin is adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of adjusted sales, all from continuing operations. To calculate organic sales growth rates, we convert current period sales from local currency to U.S. dollars using the previous period’s foreign currency exchange rates and exclude the amount of sales acquired/divested during the period from the current/previous period amounts, respectively. Adjusted sales from continuing operations consist of GAAP sales adjusted for item (x) above. Organic growth rates for Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations, Adjusted income from continuing operations and Adjusted Diluted EPS from continuing operations exclude the impact of foreign currency exchange gains and losses included in other (income) loss, net. We believe that the presentation of adjusted sales, adjusted income, adjusted diluted earnings per share, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, and organic growth rates, all from continuing operations, provides important supplemental information to management and investors seeking to understand the financial and business trends relating to our financial condition and results of operations.

Income (loss) amounts are computed using a 21% U.S. tax rate (35% U.S. tax rate for 2017 periods), and the statutory tax rates in Mexico, Netherlands, Uruguay, Ireland and Switzerland, as adjusted for the existence of NOLs. Amortization of intangibles and OOE expense have also been adjusted to reflect the estimated impact relating to our disallowed deduction of the GILTI tax, as described in footnote (j) below. Expenses that are not deductible for tax purposes (i.e. permanent tax differences) are added back at 100%. b. In 2013, we filed suit against AVX Corporation alleging they were infringing our intellectual property. Given the complexity and significant costs incurred pursuing this litigation, we are excluding these litigation expenses from adjusted amounts. This matter proceeded to trial during the first quarter of 2016 and again in the third quarter of 2017 that resulted in a jury awarding damages in the amount of $37.5 million. In March 2018, the court vacated that damage award and ordered a new trial on damages. In the January 2019 retrial on damages, the jury awarded damages in the amount of $22.2 million in damages. That finding is subject to post-trial proceedings. To date, no gains have been recognized in connection with this litigation. c. As a result of the strategic review of our customers, competitors and markets we undertook during the fourth quarter of 2017, we began to take steps to better align our resources in order to invest to grow, protect, preserve and to enhance the profitability of our portfolio of products. This will include focusing our investment in RD&E and manufacturing, improving our business processes and redirecting investments away from projects where the market does not justify the investment. As a result, during 2018 we incurred charges related to this strategy, which primarily consisted of severance costs and fees for professional services. d. In 2017, we initiated several initiatives designed to reduce costs, improve operating efficiencies and increase manufacturing capacity to accommodate growth. The plan involves the relocation of certain manufacturing operations and expansion of certain of our facilities. e. During 2018 and 2017, we incurred costs primarily related to the closure of our Clarence, NY facility and the transfer of our Beaverton, OR portable medical and Plymouth, MN vascular manufacturing operations to Tijuana, Mexico. f. Reflects acquisition and integration costs related to the acquisition of Lake Region Medical, which occurred in October 2015. g. Amounts for 2017 primarily include expenses related to our CEO and CFO transitions. h. Represents debt extinguishment charges in connection with pre-payments made on our Term B Loan Facility, which are included in interest expense. In addition, the 2018 periods include a “make-whole” premium of $31.3 million, paid as a result of redeeming our senior notes in July 2018. i. LSA and other non-recurring adjustments primarily reflects the net impact on prior periods of the LSAs entered into as of the closing of the divestiture of the AS&O product line. These LSAs govern the sale of products supplied by Viant to the Company for further resale to customers and by the Company to Viant for further resale to customers. j. Tax adjustments includes the estimated impact relating to our disallowed deduction of the GILTI tax, as mandated by the Tax Reform Act. This disallowed deduction of the GILTI tax (approximately 50% of the total GILTI tax) is due to the Company making use of its U.S. NOLs, and will be eliminated once the Company’s U.S. NOLs are fully utilized, which is expected to be in 2019. This adjustment makes our Adjusted Diluted EPS from continuing operations more comparable with other global companies that are not subject to this disallowed GILTI tax deduction and more comparable to the Company’s results following the full utilization of its U.S. NOLs. Tax adjustments for the 2017 periods represent the net tax benefit resulting from the Tax Reform Act and include a discrete tax charge in the fourth quarter of 2017 in connection with the enactment of regulations under §987 of the Internal Revenue Code, which resulted in an adjustment to our deferred tax assets. k. The diluted weighted average shares for adjusted EPS for the year ended December 28, 2018 includes potentially dilutive shares not included in the computation of diluted weighted average common shares for GAAP diluted EPS purposes because their effect would have been anti-dilutive.
