CONMED Corporation Announces Third Quarter Financial Results

October 27, 2021 GMT

LARGO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 27, 2021--

CONMED Corporation (NYSE: CNMD) today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Third Quarter 2021 Highlights

  • Sales of $248.8 million increased 4.6% year over year as reported and 4.3% in constant currency.
  • Domestic revenue increased 1.6% year over year.
  • International revenue increased 8.5% year over year as reported and 7.7% in constant currency.
  • Diluted net earnings per share (GAAP) were $0.47, compared to diluted net earnings per share of $0.23 during the third quarter of 2020.
  • Adjusted diluted net earnings per share (1) were $0.80, compared to adjusted diluted net earnings per share of $0.88 during the third quarter of 2020.

“We faced a more challenging macro environment during the third quarter than anticipated, but our organizational resilience enabled us to grow revenue over the third quarters of both 2020 and 2019,” commented Curt R. Hartman, CONMED’s Chair of the Board, President, and Chief Executive Officer. “Our team remains focused on serving our customers and helping them navigate a difficult environment while driving continued product innovation to support long-term growth.”

2021 Outlook

Given the continued uncertainty related to the global pandemic and the impact on hospitals, the Company is now targeting the lower end of its previously issued full-year 2021 revenue guidance of $1.015 billion to $1.035 billion. Based on recent exchange rates, the Company expects approximately 100 basis points of foreign exchange headwind to fourth quarter revenue growth.

The Company now expects full-year 2021 adjusted diluted net earnings per share in the range of $3.18 to $3.23, compared to its prior range of $3.15 to $3.25.

Supplemental Financial Disclosures

(1) A reconciliation of reported diluted net earnings per share to adjusted diluted net earnings per share, a non-GAAP financial measure, appears below.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release and the associated conference call may contain forward-looking statements based on certain assumptions and contingencies that involve risks and uncertainties, which could cause actual results, performance, or trends to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements herein or in previous disclosures. For example, in addition to general industry and economic conditions, factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements may include, but are not limited to, the risks posed to the Company’s business, financial condition, and results of operations by the COVID-19 global pandemic and the various government responses to the pandemic, including deferral of surgeries, reductions in hospital and ambulatory surgery center operating volumes, disruption to potential supply chain reliability, as well as the risk factors discussed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the full year ended December 31, 2020 and listed under the heading Forward-Looking Statements in the Company’s most recently filed Form 10-Q. Any and all forward-looking statements are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and relate to the Company’s performance on a going-forward basis. The Company believes that all forward-looking statements made by it have a reasonable basis, but there can be no assurance that management’s expectations, beliefs or projections as expressed in the forward-looking statements will actually occur or prove to be correct.

Supplemental Information - Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company supplements the reporting of its financial information determined under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP) with certain non-GAAP financial measures, including percentage sales growth in constant currency; adjusted gross profit; cost of sales excluding specified items; adjusted selling and administrative expenses; adjusted operating income; adjusted interest expense; adjusted other expense; adjusted income tax expense (benefit); adjusted effective income tax rate; adjusted net income, adjusted diluted shares and adjusted diluted net earnings per share (EPS). The Company believes that these non-GAAP measures provide meaningful information to assist investors and shareholders in understanding its financial results and assessing its prospects for future performance. Management believes percentage sales growth in constant currency and the other adjusted measures described above are important indicators of its operations because they exclude items that may not be indicative of, or are unrelated to, its core operating results and provide a baseline for analyzing trends in the Company’s underlying business. Further, the presentation of EBITDA is a non-GAAP measurement that management considers useful for measuring aspects of the Company’s cash flow. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures for reviewing the operating results and analyzing potential future business trends in connection with its budget process and bases certain management incentive compensation on these non-GAAP financial measures.

Net sales on a constant currency basis is a non-GAAP measure. The Company analyzes net sales on a constant currency basis to better measure the comparability of results between periods. To measure percentage sales growth in constant currency, the Company removes the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates that affect the comparability and trend of net sales. To measure earnings performance on a consistent and comparable basis, the Company excludes certain items that affect the comparability of operating results and the trend of earnings. These adjustments are irregular in timing, may not be indicative of past and future performance and are therefore excluded to allow investors to better understand underlying operating trends.

Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies’ non-GAAP financial measures having the same or similar names. These adjusted financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for reported sales growth, gross profit, cost of sales, selling and administrative expenses, operating income, interest expense, other expense, income tax expense, effective income tax rate, net income (loss), diluted shares and diluted net earnings (loss) per share, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are an additional way of viewing aspects of the Company’s operations that, when viewed with GAAP results and the reconciliations to corresponding GAAP financial measures above, provide a more complete understanding of the business. The Company strongly encourages investors and shareholders to review its financial statements and publicly filed reports in their entirety and not to rely on any single financial measure.
